Star Riddle


Is there a one rayed Star?

A one rayed star would be a point.

A two rayed star would be a line.

A three rayed star would be a fractured piece

of broken crystal, diamond or quartz, sapphire or topaz.

A four rayed star would it be a square,

or a cube?

In front burns the pentagram,

behind the effulgent six rayed star,

look up in the night sky,

every one is seven and beyond.

Each star shines in Indra’s web

woven in dark and light,

an infinite tapestry of points

from nothing to something:

a picture of points,

a photo of dots.

Yes, there is a one rayed star,

and yes it has a point.

About johnsmithiiimxiii

John Smith, IIMXIII is the avatar of an award winning poet, artist, etc. who still lives in the Palouse country of the Pacific NW. He has not received much notice with his prose . . . but as his avatar, I hope that he keeps plugging along.
