The star hangs in the sky.
    Shining. Unique. One among millions.
    Just like all the other stars.
    Watching. Waiting. Hoping.

     The star falls from the sky.
    Ablaze. Broken. Vulnerable.
    Countless wishes come true.
    At the price of her death.
    The fallen star stares up at the sky.
    Dreaming. Longing. Stricken with wonder.
    She is a paradox.
    Dead, but never more alive.
    She smiles.
    “In the darkest of nights,
    Your Light will shine.”
    Sweet abandon.
    The starstruck ground trembles.
    The star’s light dims. 
    Basking in surrender. 
    Beautiful. Unique. Radiant.
    Greater light shining from within.

    “Shining star, I hope you see…
    If the whole wide world is staring straight at you,
    they can’t see Me.” ~ Jason Upton, Jacob’s Dream.

    Joanna Alonzo is a walking paradox. She is a beautiful, albeit messy, mixture of thought and emotion, expressed in the form of hopefully readable – and relatable – stories. She is a kingdom kid, who looks forward to being a writer and storyteller even when she reaches heaven. She is passionate about the unreached, about those who have yet to know the Love she found in the arms of the Almighty. She is intrigued by the world and its people, who day by day, continue to convince her that God is the greatest Storyteller of all.
