Lent: Gold Stars

amywink March 7th, 2018

“Let the beauty we love be what we do.” Rumi

No comment can make
this writing worth doing
but can easily defeat
what is required
if ambition for stars
drives the work
instead of wonder
for the search or
desire to know.

Why exactly are you doing this?
How do you know this is right?
What exactly is the point of this?

I am following what I love,
with only the radiance
from this inner star
to drive me forward in
this current work,
as if just by this small faith,
my hopeful search
may somehow reconcile
the disparate beauty of
this divided world.
