A couple of days ago I woke up around 6AM and there was this star or planet out the bedroom window so big and bright at first I thought it was an airplane. I just keep looking at it and when it didn’t move, well, I just kept looking at it. When the words filled my head, I got up and wrote them down.
I opened my eyes to the Clementine Star
Poking me in the ribs
Get up She said
Your moon is full
It’s time to wake up and live
I was reminded of a dream I had about when I was in my 30′s. I was working in a frame shop in a mall at the time. In my dream I woke up and got out of bed and went to work. But work was an endless room filled with white iron beds. I got into one of the beds and went to sleep. Shortly after that I went back to school to get my MFA.
But these words really speak of the change I made in my life when I got divorced and started my business, found love and set out to create the life I have today.
Now I think of Simon and his daily call to life. Always a good reminder.
(I still have to finish sewing this piece. Not sure about the green fabric at the top. It will have to wait till Monday though)
