Star

Hole Through Painted Fence

Perhaps not everyone could see.
Some who saw refused to follow.
Those who did their lives, once hollow,
were all transformed majestically.

A tiny light far off may be
a beam from an enormous star.
The blood once flowing left a scar.
Did all that happen long ago?
We see the scar and starlit show.
One word confirms just who we are.


Ronovan Hester offers the challenge to use the rhyme word “star” in the C line of a décima having rhyme pattern ABBAACCDDC.

I enjoy walking, poetry and short prose as well as taking pictures with my phone.
