Star Ka'at's Ramblings











{February 28, 2013}   Sit Beside Me

Pain permeates
Sickness sighs
Helpless hurts
Coughs cry
Trembling tears



{February 27, 2013}   Beautiful

Ghost of a smile
In darkened shadows
White noise stillness
Beautiful

Whispered secrets
Watery slide
Wide bright eyes
Beautiful

Chained in freedom
Softest of shackles
Love’s holy torment
Beautiful



{February 26, 2013}   Rain Storm

Brown underfoot crunches
Layers and layers
Fallen sticks and twigs

Mice scurry and burrow
Birds sing and peck
Snails travel

Wind stirs, grows
Constant sound
Soft brushes, to stinging

Day dims
Light and shadow
Become one

Heard before felt
Footsteps like marbles
Into droning chorus



{February 25, 2013}   Cautious Hope

hope and pray
hope and pray
today, today
bugle clear
by and by
thy and nigh
tomorrow new



{February 24, 2013}   Please Be

Right or wrong
Path or road
Me or you

Given
Named
Warrior

Thee before He
He before me
Broken gap

Stained and painted
New and born
Please be thee to He



{February 23, 2013}   Scary

Fright
Spite
Night
Sight
Slight
Unlight
Dislike



{February 22, 2013}   Homecoming

Undertaken journey
so long
Finally home
so tired

Smokey horizon
gray
Thicker, closer
breath hard

Through our field
tall, brown
Around the barn
sturdy, full

Broken mirror
sharp
My reflection
jagged

Burning
no
Death
no

I try
shock
Why, why
bitter

Rains now
too late
Sitting in mud
Rocking
   rocking…



{February 21, 2013}   Questions

No muse?
Thoughts
Wandering
Violently

No hope?
Life
Passing
Drudgingly

No one?
Never
Always
Alone



{February 20, 2013}   Bad News

Lo, behold
Day never seen
Dismay unexpected

Shock, grief
Paralyzed
Kick start

Must go
Can’t stop
Mercy, please



{February 19, 2013}   Nowhere Slum

Beating, beating
Red fists
Red ground
No one in breath

Spitting
To dirt
To face
Backs turned

Night climbs high
Tiny child
Tiny knife
Cold hands on taut rope

Stiff tumble
Tiny tears
Trembling body
“Don’t leave me, Papa!”
