Child to the Stars

I would try to be like the stars,
feet ever sadly upon the ground
I’d look up at that bright family,
a child, truly, ever alone was I;
but I told this not to any soul
and still I’d never wish to tell
that I’m still seeking my own
in moonlight desperate darting
to the lighter parts of shadow
who sing me bits of life and poetry

Starry Nights into the Sun

beyond the night the sun still shines
uncanny is the moon’s borrowed light
pulling sea away from seashore’s side
to only push it back again.

higher the waters climb towards heaven
tears wept as mementos to be ever kept
hoping one day the rains release them
teeming life instead of sorrows.

blood is spilled by our worldly cowards
their fear elects the shills of tyrants
while all the rest will nod their “yes”
hoping the eye of God is blind

but the eye sees as the light is free
I know this deep within the heart of me
a love to witness all that seems hidden
dissolving starry nights into the sun.
