1 Day to Christmas

"UNTITLED" (STAR)
In a corner of the world
where star dust leans in mounds
against an ebony sky line

A star is maturing fully
with points so sparkly sharp
the egos of kings to shatter

Yet three will remain intact
humbly mounting their camels
to travel wide and far

Creaky old knees to bend
in a manger alit
by thus pointed star

Imaginary Garden With Real Toads
A Skyflower Friday: Untitled
Kerry challenges us to choose a sculpture by Felix Gonzalez-Torres from his 'Untitled' series and write a new poem, with the same method of title. The content and style of the poem is open, but we should take our cue from "issues of identity, desire, originality, loss, the metaphor of journey"

I chose "Untitled"(A Corner of Baci)

  6. "Creaky old knees to bend" I can surely relate to that and I love "where star dust leans in mounds against an ebony sky line"
