Today I'm joining the Five Minute Friday Community again, writing for five minutes on a given prompt. This week's word is DIFFERENT.
This time I thought I'd try my hand at a spontaneous five-minute Christmas poem. The picture above made me think of "a different star" and about the enjoyment God might get from creating a brand-new star to symbolize His brand-new revelation of Himself.
A Different Star
Does it seem ridiculous to say
there is a different star in the sky tonight,
when the heavens are already full of lights
flung into space thousands of years ago
at the dawn of God’s imagination?
Did the Creator wake early again this morning, laughing
with anticipation, saying, “Today I will do something
new, something their minds could never
have conceived?” How else to explain
the new light in the sky, the sign
of the unlikely birth that made all
the difference in the world.
