Star Ka'at's Ramblings











{February 18, 2017}   Ancient Memory

Alas, and herald the dawn
Who can say what this morn brings
Steadfast and true
The pillars that surround

Alas, and herald the night
Gloam takes the light
Then dies in the darkness
Fear not for the pillars are light

“Alas!” cries evil, “I cannot stand!”
Armed are the pillars, skillful and sure
Love and life are in their arms
While enemy death drips from their swords

{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…



{November 22, 2011}   Holiday Feelings

Holidays
Hold
Happiness

Families
Frame
Faith

Lack
Leaves
Lust

Ardor
Amplifies
Anxiety



{November 11, 2011}   Facility

Fleeting glances
So many faces
Untold stories
Sickness and pains

Walk the halls
Pass the rooms
Smiles, frowns
Vacant and aware

Nurses and aides
Doctors and therapists
To care and trust
Unenviable job



{November 10, 2011}   Slow Death

Mourn slowly
Mourn long
Mourn the long death
Of mind depredation

Aware, unaware
Simply fading
Changing, leaving
Stand, tremble, watch

We are left
Empty, alone
Family, friends
Wishing, crying

Your body
Your face
Your smile
Your mind is gone



{August 30, 2011}   Without You

Beautiful evening
Friends, movie, dinner
Raw fish delicacy

Deep blue sea
Bright city lights
Muted forest sunlight

Where is home
True home of peace and safety
Without you?



{August 29, 2011}   Diving Into Bed And Life

Can I do this
Can I grow
Can I expand these empty pages

How lonely up here
This tiny loft
The empty spaces of poverty

But wait, there is joy
In the mundane and simple
In the little brother jumping on the bed



Mistakes mistakes
Wounds and blessings
Strange mix, stranger event
Dread to all

Took a drive to fireworks
Took a walk through memories
Old friends and new friends
Opened to all



{May 29, 2011}   Memorial

To remember
Hold and treasure
Love and comfort

To honor
Life and liberty
Freedom and happiness



{May 8, 2011}   I Carry A Love

I am humbled
I am broken

Can I bind your wounds?
Can I heal your heart?

The responsibility
The given trust

Am I worthy?
Am I enough?

God help me
God guide me

I share a treasure
I carry a love
