    Astute readers will note that the fish in the image is neither tiny nor scaly, though it is, indeed, a fish. But Mr. Reger signed off on it, and there is some lovely interplay between his little dreamy gem of a poem and Anderson’s dreamy gem of a photo.

    I like both.

    The poem does not appear to appear. Faulty link?

    It’s showing for me. Perhaps because it is a jpeg, to accommodate the formatting, your browser isn’t happy. I suggest trying another browser: Firefox or Chrome. Let me know how you go.

    Fixed now, I think. Sorry about that!

    Reads like a charm.

    I love the whimsical feel to this…making a starfish into a wishing star.
