How stars hide during the day,
I wonder and I wonder more...
Only one star, our Sun, is there.
How people just move on here,
I wonder why I can not ever...
Only she could & she moved on.
How long will it take for destiny,
I wonder when it will shine...
Only I can wonder, I can only wonder.
Under fish scale skies—breaks the sun,
In myriad eyes, beamed longing across
Stupendous arcs in highest procession,
As we make our way in glittering dream.
Under quilted clouds, in rains we swim,
Wrapped in fibers and whim, a webbing
Embrace and steeples of mind to shim,
As we enter the waters from a shooting.
As child we ask, 'do we return to whence
We came, or do we end, after days, time,
Thru sorrows and bliss and sleep but lent,
Balm for us to bear loss of spent dream'?
Under winking stars and full faced moon,
We sing our songs writing a story loosed
And pray our hands, to a feather will turn,
As we make our way thru glittering dream.
Sparkling eyes, smiling face
Mini me, a newborn baby
When I had nothing to offer You
Your heart for me was pure and true
Before I could pour my love at Your feet
You had made up Your mind about me
Before You called me faithful servant
With the sound of many waters, You called me daughter
I thought I needed to have it all together
Before I could call Your name
I thought I had to do more, be more
So Your love for me would endure
Hearing Your voice had to be earned
When I stumbled, You were far
Until You showed me who You really are
So close, speaking with a tender heart
Daddy God, always smiling at me
With love never-ending, grace overflowing
Warmth in Your embrace, fire in Your eyes
Not angry when I fall, You are kind
I hear You calling, come rest in who I Am
Over me You sing, there are no strings
I love you for you, not what you do
You take me back, to before our journey began
To before I knew Your name, but You spoke mine
Daughter of the King
Your heart is what I wanted the whole time
Some say your pupil enlarges when you see,
Things you love, things you like, you and me.
The forest in your eyes, the mint, the sage,
It’s always searching, writing words on its page.
Why is it that this wonder of green and black,
Expands its darkness when its love is back?
The crisp Oregon air fills my lungs
Rain falling onto rooftops sounds like a beating drum
Echoing into the trees
I know that this is where I’m meant to be
New beginnings are in sight
As I’m starting a new chapter of my life
And I can’t help but wonder about all the potential that is there
As I sit and stare into the night
After the newness of this new perspective
Clears like a fog in the mountain pass
What will you want then?
Soon after the end of this or that?
Where will you stand?
And have you since realized the value stored within?
So much so that it might make you want to go back?
I'm lost in the city
But I'm taking my time
The streets keep talking to me
They're asking how everyone can spend so much time looking down and straight ahead
When a whole world grows rapidly above them
Buildings grow into the stars
A new styled solar system
They dance among the clouds
Wisping fluffs of greys and whites
When I look, I know that I want to be where it all connects
I am gliding down hills
I am fumbling through crosswalks
I am slipping past street signs
because I can't keep my feet on the ground and my head from that new world
In trying to pick out a pattern in chaos,
I found neither symmetry nor direction.
It just was- and that's all it needed to be,
No rhythm, no purpose, no agenda.
Just pure chaotic goodness straight from a sourceless chasm
To even attempt to decipher the endless web of desires,
of sorrows, or fleeting wonder- is to attempt to unravel the spider's web by speaking it. It is to sing down the moon.
It cannot be done- but there is no harm in trying.
