the star that blazes in you

[There is a tradition of celebrating Epiphany as “Women’s Christmas.” Here is the ending of a poem by Jan Richardson for the occasion:]

… Do not expect
to return
by the same road.
Home is always
by another way,

And you will know it
not by the light
that waits for you

but by the star
that blazes inside you,
telling you
where you are
is holy
and you are welcome

One thought on “the star that blazes in you”
