Star Ka'at's Ramblings

{November 28, 2011}   Thimble

She put her heart
In a thimble
He took and crushed it
Ever so nimble

She gave everything
And much more
He consumed it
And returned a bore

She gave her soul
With love and pleasure
He took from her a toll
With selfish ignorance


{October 28, 2011}   Punch, Dance

Don’t look
Don’t touch
Don’t kiss
Don’t want

Hold fear
Hold joy
Hold employ
Hold gain

Clutch the tiny
essence of you
Burst like fireflies
heartbreak and tears

{April 23, 2011}   Watchers and Guardians

Heart felt desires
Wondrous confessions
Hopes and dreams

Strangers to friends
Friends to family
Watchers and guardians

Could you know
Would you believe
The tears I cry for you

Through fire and ice
Through blood and death
I would, all for you


{April 9, 2011}   Faith and Trust

An opening?
A trust?
A beginning?
A gift

Squander not
The fragile faith
The blooming heart
The precious soul


Dance in the light of dawn
Skip gaily to the starlight
Bow deeply to the moon

Arise with hope
Drift lightly over murk
Clutch tightly love

Warm, soft moss
Gentle breeze
Your memory in heart


{March 11, 2011}   Take Heart

To reach out to you
To hold you tight

To make you feel wanted
To include you in my life

To see your smile
To hear your laugh


{March 10, 2011}   Take, Bury, Knock

Written to the tune of “Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door” as performed by Avril Lavigne, written by Bob Dylan.

Take this knife from me
I’m too weak to use it anymore
Take this armor from me
I’m too sick to use it anymore

Bury my good intentions in the ground
I’m too hurt to use them anymore
Bury my anger in the ground
I’m too lonely to nurse them anymore

Knock, knock, knocking on your heart’s door
Are you in there? Will you let me in?
Knock, knock, knocking on your heart’s door
Won’t you be the hero I know you to be?


{February 7, 2011}   Another End, Another Beginning

Circles, circles
Always around
New is old
Old is now new

Closing door
Opening window
Pull back your bow
Let fly your hopes

Weep not for me
Love lives on
Broken heart
Ragged heals


{February 1, 2011}   Take My Colors

Take my colors
    sir knight
For you will be
    my champion

Wear them proudly
    upon your helm
Bear them secretly
    tucked against you

Come for me soon
    my love, my lord
Another seeks to be
    my love, my lord

Do you love me still
    dearest heart
What bars your way
    to mine own side

The enemy will wait
    no longer
By force, to church
    I am taken

In sorrow do I
    warm his bed
In pain do I
    bear his children

Do my ladies see
    my unshed tears
Does the court know
    the beauty hidden misery

Wait! Stop not the boy
    tattered, mute, messenger
Deeply with tears he bows
    forehead to floor

Holding, offering, gently
    in shrunken arms
Reaching, clutching, pale
    in shaking arms

A rag to most
    hues all faded
My heart stops
    stained light and dark

Take my colors
    sir knight
For you will be
    my champion


{December 25, 2010}   Winter Part, Warm Heart

Gray morning
Snow curtain
Deep stillness
Creatures in hiding

Ice commands
Life draws inward
But fights on
Warm in heart

Bitter battles
Torrential banks
Fires burn
Triumphant survival
