If the Stars

If the Stars by Dawn Garrett

If the stars could talk
what would they say?

I like to think they’d be friendly,
passing on their way.

Glory in light shining,
effervescent and bubbly in community.

with enthusiasm for acquiring
the acquaintance of the other.

They’d ask after one’s mother
and how the family does.

They’d listen intently
to all the tos and froes.

Continuing the conversation,
the second replies in kind.

Seeking consolation
as uniting mind to mind.

If the stars could speak
they’d sing out the Lord’s praises
After the example of the rocks and ages.
