Swinging on a star


of all love spoken

  his words to me said it best

    for "eternity"

      love you more then there are stars

        a timeless and countless love...

Swinging on a Star

God's hand reached through time
dropping brilliance in the night
love's eternal gift
one star named for "my best friend"
our anniversary light

The Stars

The Stars they lead me,
a misty sparkling trail;
The brightest 'GO' sign;
Streaking hope across the sky,
pointing to my heart's desire.

SWINGING ON A STAR



sky wrapped in rhinestones

   knitting hands through love’s compass

       as one velvet  star

           pointing beam on embossed eyes

…he moans soft in light,  my ” dawn!”

Within the Stars

Our feelings were high On this cold, dark, star-filled night I ogle your eyes You form beauty within them They twinkle like the white stars The moon shows its face As we walk down the black hill Letting our hands touch Our feelings surely brought joy As the sky winks at our love The stars have their love Ones that shined that gorgeous night Romance brought by stars And the moon has its power Love enters both of our minds

                                               I traveled blind without sight...
                                                   Searching and searching...
                                             Then a warm light passed by me...
                                                 "Rosanna" became my star...

Swinging On A Star

On moonbeams we ride
floating through heaven's night sky
gently guided on
toward our "Love Nest" waiting there
for our passion to ignite

Nagareboshi - Shooting star

blackest night aglow
icy harbinger of doom
near now, make seas rise
send shivers through ancient tombs
blue earth beware night sky 

temple bells ring out
monks in orange robes chant ohm
flocks of sparrows flee
lava hisses through fissures
blue earth beware the night sky

blackest night aglow
bodies meet in heavens flight
deep within plates move
crusts crush mountain tops high
blue earth beware the night sky

yurei* call rise, hide
the sacred toreii** gate falls
guard dogs howl the moon
harbinger of endings drone
blue earth, beware the night sky


*yurei, angry ghost
**toreii gate, arch before a Shinto Shrine

Bright multi-faceted points
Still shimmer from far

Reminding me of His love.

Swinging on a Star

Hanging in the sky,
each and every night above,
a light in the dark
given with a heart of love,
“Semper illic” just like me.

My tears have bought you
The brightest star in the sky.
I fancy you there,
Starring among the angels
As you did for me on Earth..

Swinging On A Star

I swung all night long
I broke the rocks for a "Spark"
A present it was
Not for I, but for her hair
Lost now, but found tomorrow

Sunlight lives in you.
Awakened by a dawning love,
your eyes shine gold.
When peaceful night turns to morn, 
the stars dream on your shoulders.

The night sky grows dark.
Only stars illuminate.
“Twinkle” lights the sky.
So brightly that all can see.
 Your eyes “Twinkle” lovingly.
