Star Ka'at's Ramblings

{July 25, 2014}   Burn Out

Fires burn in your violent eyes
Throw you down
And against the wall

Let go the brands and embers
Seek sanctuary
And recover

Sunlight warms, balanced breeze
Allow the tree’s embrace
The water’s song


{July 4, 2013}   Stray Not

Entwine me
Trance me
Your burning touch
Silken callous

Warm rushes
Twinkling canopy
Hold, moon
Stray not to dawn

{March 15, 2013}   Hooded Peace

The hooded man
In the shadows
At the edge of vision

Green Man or human
Deepest night
Brightest day

Step lightly
Disturb not
Neither harm

Be at peace
Take in
Rest beneath twined vines

{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 14, 2013}   Rainy Travel

This road
This path
This trail

Hidden sun
Gray drifting low
Windy and heavy

Looming promise
Foreboding rain
Chill and damp

Hood pulled low
Cloak wrapped close
One foot after the other

{February 9, 2013}   Sun

So close, so hot
Burning, aging
Wavering sight
Desert sands

So far, so pale
Barely lighting
Never warming
Frozen north

Hung middle sky
Dancing down
Thick waving trees
My favorite Sun

{February 8, 2013}   Moss

Softest hues
Greys to greens
Hanging, clinging

Some for shading
Some for healing
Some for comfort

Deepest carpet
Rock paintings
Tree hangings

Color my dreams
Brush my cheek
Warm my night

{September 30, 2011}   Wild Mountain

Wild mountain thyme
Laurels and lace
Caverns and time

Fairy paths
Hushed, untrodden
Dream spun

{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 8, 2011}   Blood

Dark stains on white satin
Frames the blade, shaking and dripping
Dark stains on white satin
Slick cool warmed unnaturally

Spreading stains on white satin
Crowded mind so empty
Spreading stains on white satin
Sounds dimly muted

Wrapped in dark satin
Hair spread and snagged, grass and branch
Wrapped in dark satin
Wet and clinging, my death shroud
