Guardian

Guardian

In the darkness of the deepest night

A star swallowed up her light

And flung it into the depths of time and space

Now the Earth rolls and spins beneath my feet

in a treacherous trajectory of might

It gathered up its power

and burst its orbit in its flight

Mother gathered up the shattered shards

And slowly it grew again to reunite

The fragments of our fragile selves

Now I emerge again, sword in hand

Ready for another fight

The Poet

The Poet

Do I look like a poet?                                                        s5000256

He asked

 

No

I said

 

Words that flow from the soul

Leave a mark on

the face

I said.

Open Letter to Mr. Cohen

Open Letter to Mr. Cohen

Dear Mr Cohen,

When our Fragments of Light

burst into this life,

Onto this Earth

with the follies, love and hate

You so eloquently itemized in words

You spoke

To my life

My experiences and

Your words carried me

Through joy

And agony

And when my brother was shot

Murdered in cold blood

and I asked Why?

There was silence

I attuned to my music

First the ominous sounds

Of a low deep beat

Theme song, “The Sopranos”

Yeah that man

He got himself a gun

He was meant to kill

But then

Out of the random shuffled songs,

I heard

Next, the very next song:

“If it be your Will”

And tears came with understanding

And peace flowed

And surrender

For the human condition

Expressed in myriad ways

Through song, through verse, through love

Through hate

It is we,

Every single flickering Light-

Who live these experiences

For the Greater Good

So I thank Thee, Mister Cohen,

For being here

For Me.

In Gratitude,

Christine

Poetry on a Fallish Day

Poetry on a Fallish Day

From Green to Gold

There is a tree

No,

There are millions and billions

And they are shedding

And dropping

And letting go

The end of a cycle                                                                  IMG_0845

a season and

Of the toil of summer,

Shade’s no longer needed

Their canopies now

Littering the lawns,

the ponds,

the streams

With their colorful bounty

I want to roll in the crunch

and jump and stomp

and sniff the air like a dog

For finally,

yes

finally

Fall is falling
