Star Ka'at's Ramblings

{March 5, 2013}   I have a cold.

Sick to death
Sick depressed
Sneezing, wheezing

Can’t breathe
Can’t sees
Tearing, watering

Sprawling and crawling
Back to the living
Fevered rest


{October 19, 2011}   Fire

Crackling warm
Burning bright
Colors, shadows
Heat delight

Wood devoured
Embers glowing
Time sand falling
Drifting, fading

Lulling, calming
Drawing, pulling
Fall to sleep
Drowsy, fuzzy, sleep

{October 11, 2011}   Embraced by Fall

Breathe into me
The fall
The colors
The air

Embrace me
The cold
The whispers
The texture

{August 10, 2011}   Common Cold

Wrangled, mangled
Spun and spent
Bangled, tangled
Wrung and rent

So common
So consuming
So aching
So tiring

{August 6, 2011}   Sacred To Me

Your picture
Your name
Your likes and fears
Sacred to me

Mocked for my secrets
Shamed for being strange
But some things are just so
Sacred to me

Can we whisper in the rain?
Will you hold me while the water rises?
To keep each other warm through the cold days?
Sacred to me

{March 3, 2011}   Ever, Laughter, Sheltering

Ever arching possibilities
Sighing whispers and laughter
Open moments, closing eyes
Dripping cold, spraying ice
Soft, impressions, barefoot
Sunlit shadows, nested songs
Beautiful greens, life-full accents
Falling, rising, growing, sheltering

My glorious waterfall cave

{December 26, 2010}   Weightless Eternity

I close my eyes
Moment, forever
All I know is gone
Bleak emptiness

Was there to hear?
Whisper passing
Nothing recognized
Deadly silence

What left to feel
Cold, hard, sharp
Sensations absent
Even dreams

Beyond morning
Deeper night
No pull, no push
Weightless eternity
