B&P’s Shadorma and Beyond – Joseph’s Star

Let’s look again at the Joseph’s Star. The Joseph’s Star was created by Christina R. Jussaume. It is a non-rhyming 8-line poem with a syllable count of 1/3/5/7/7/5/3/1. Each stanza is center-aligned so that the finished poem is diamond-shaped.

one will I
take from here? I have
to decide one way or so
different paths to reach your heart
heart and soul talking
you and me

but whichway do we
go from here?
I don’t know
but we’ve got to try our best
we’ve got to decide

    I like the way your first one can go with the image….the idea that at the end of all those paths you might find someone’s heart.

    There’s a sense of hope that the final decision is the right one.

    Decisions, decisions! But you know when you’ve made the right one. Nicely done.
