Star Ka'at's Ramblings











{September 30, 2010}   Not Enough Time

Stressed, pressed
Never any rest
Tear, pair, share
Never take the dare

Hustle, bustle
Not enough muscle
Push and pull
Smother me under wool

{September 29, 2010}   Sick

Spinning world
Sounds too loud
Looks too bright
Moves too fast

Somebody stop it
Smooth the colors
Dim the lights
Slow the carousel

What’s wrong with me
Please explain
Hold me, pull me through
Turn down the world

Let me lay
Let me sleep
Don’t wake me for death
Don’t wake me for life



{September 28, 2010}   Behold, Death
Behold, the ghost from windy past
Death from before and behind
The river fills and drowns
Surrender to the mist and hungering depths
"Behold, Death" poem


{September 27, 2010}   What If

What if
Precious gift
Are we ready?
Are we worthy?

Never intended
Never tried
Heavenly intent
Divine decision

So much confusion
So much uncertainty
Might be nothing
Probably nothing

Keep me Jesus
Calm and obedient
Trusting and patient
Always in Your will



{September 26, 2010}   Help Me

Tiny fingers
Tiny hands
O so helpless
O why me



{September 25, 2010}   Change

Glad
Sad
Empty
Full
Jealous
Lonely
Happy
Angry
Helpless
Content

Into Your hands O Lord, I commit my spirit



{September 24, 2010}   Kaeroe

Blue gray eyes
Curly thick hair
Sapling tall
Rail tie thin

Smiling face, shining bright
Gentle giant, kindly heart
Careful hands, soft and hard worked
Cowboy boots and cowboy swagger

Beautiful smile
Gracious manner
Soft spoken
Loving eyes

Quiet jealousy
Shy love
Gentle touch, quick withdraw
Serving heart

Time and time
Watch and watch
Time and time
Watch and watch



{September 23, 2010}   Life Friends

Old friends
New friends
Broken friends

Laughter
Greetings
Tears

Secrets
Learning
Helping

Love
Love
Love



{September 22, 2010}   Wild Friends

My kitty
So pretty
My puppy
So fluffy

Scamper and romp
Romp and scamper
Catch birds and squirrels
Catch crickets and mice

Snuggle and cuddle
Slobber and drool
Shed and claw
Purr and bark

Companion and friend
Child and pet
So dear to my heart
So part of my soul



{September 21, 2010}   So Lonely

Empty, lonely
Quibble and quibble
Though so empty when gone

Toss, turn
Alone and alone
Cold, so cold when gone

Pride, pleasure
Gifted, so gifted
Smiles, though so empty when gone
