twinkle, soft star!

tonight is doing the laundry against the backdrop of the nightsky, a palm tree looms on the left & in front, the thicket of bushes.. .in the immediate distance a streetlight stands firm & steady, & to the right, soft porch light glows.. .but as i bob the dress im washing up & down, the soap suds dance in the bucket, & the pattern of faint starlight through the window holds me mesmerized* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *in particular my attention is on one star, much brighter than the rest, & seems to be twinkling, like a gem being swayed from side to side in the moonlight. i checked it against the steady streetlight, yes it was definitely twinkling** *so i wonder upon it, as i tip the water down the drain, i smile, thinking maybe its morse code from heaven!
