first star

barely married
first Christmas
choosing an ornament

California warmth
didn't feel like home
downtown store
ornaments galore

but, i knew
it had to be a star
to grace the boughs

that little star
35 trees later
still lights the way

Oh, I have a small one like that, too, from a first Christmas. It's probably my favorite ornament.
