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


{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?

{July 15, 2011}   Dreams Can Be Real

Tomorrow is the day!
Dreams come true
Soul-bound friends
Living our hopes

{July 10, 2011}   To Live A Dream

Can’t wait
Don’t break
No way

Dream a wish
Live a hope
Laughter, joy
Friends forever

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

{June 10, 2011}   If Only


{June 8, 2011}   Transitions

Shadows of time
Desires and lies
Clutch and control

Across lines
Out of bounds
Fear surrounds

New life
Painful birth
Friends open arms

{June 4, 2011}   For Love

Dragon birth
Scaled leather
Pendant true
Intricate knots

Beautiful friends
Heartfelt gift
Tears un-shed
Love un-measured
