"My, Beautiful *Star Light" ~

Seraphic, turbid waves in turgid waters; turning

Amid my spindrift Soul wherein loves tumult rages....

Crashing through this pulsing heart that knowingly craves her ~

Aneath these turquoise tides, which tear burnt pages?!

Washed upon the shore to feed the pyramids pyre

Torn from destined books carving ancient time....

Spirits chanting dreams while dancing in the fire

Captured by the flames of oranges burning; loves sublime ~

Sunrise, now gathering blue horizons to kiss the wrested nights

Waning heavens waving a million reflections left, glittering deep inside....

Astringent embers touching tranquility while as floating through the rougish sky

Seraphic, turbid waves in turgid waters still, only to subside!?

Torn from destined books carving ancient time; this 

My own Aphrodite.... 


...."My, Beautiful *Star Light" ~

- Fight With Dragons And Wolves -

- Fight With Dragons And Wolves -

Take me into the realm of your midnight dreams awakening sleep 
Bring us to a higher level far away from misery and despair
Where waves through oceans are kissed by a salted breeze blowing 

A place where mind can fly upon strong waves, straight lines on white sheets
Trembling currents grasp one breathless moment holding time 
No one will not lead us, even if it blows up to storm force gale 

Circle of twilight's halo under magic spells cast breathing fire starbursts 
Stars living on self produced energy under horizon's steps forward 
A mirror reflection of a faraway kingdom reflecting of the sun 

Faced with light internally stored faithful mercy yields 
We call life a mystery unforgettable the words of faith, hope and love
Crowning angels you came before me a queen 

Defeating the dragons and fighting wolves from preying sacrifice 
We find a personal point of common ground held in between world's 
Viewing life as the canvas we paint upon our memories

A star has fallen

A star has fallen
a brush of light
that painted
a little corner deep
in the firmament
before it turns 
into dark.

A dream that vanished
before it even became
a glisten of wish
a bud that withered away
before I study it

or it was just a breath
which sacrificed itself
for other breaths
and shone like a Sun
before it unites itself
with the Infinite Being
the 'Ancient of Days'.

Bethlehem's Star

Bethlehem’s star luminous cross delicately hung by cherubs adorning a cold night sky The warmth of a promise yet to be fulfilled lured shepherds and wise men alike to a humble manger where a Savior drew his first breath exhaling in the bitter air of a world He sought to save

Christmas Joy

God sent Him to us, to save us from sin His arrival foretold by the sages. The angels rejoiced when so long ago They brought news that’s been told through the ages. Mary the Virgin gave birth to the child Who had come to bring peace to the earth The angels sang carols, spreading the word Proclaiming our Lord’s long awaited birth. He came to bring peace, he came to bring love, He was the answer to all the world’s woes. The shepherds and wisemen came from afar. To follow the star as far as it goes. We like the shepherds must follow the star. It is up there in the Heavens still glowing. If we would banish all wars and distress We must follow wherever it’s going. There is nothing God’s love cannot conquer Freely given to all those who believe. The star shows the way to Christmas joy And blessings of that first Christmas Eve. By: Joyce Johnson

The Angel Star.

In the northern heavens her essence so vivid
My constant seraphic star
Basking within her gloriousness warming
Cleaves to me from distances far
Guiding my pathway on night lit Earth
Keeping my course right and true
Holding back storms until I reach my safe haven
To witness the next dawn rise anew
Those nights when cover clouds her features
Her radiance rushes in on the winds
Blessing my journey seeing me home safely
Forgiving my ways absolving my sins
Morning starts breaking and my cherub starts fading
Past the horizon waters falling so deep
Awaiting the rising of her mettle so tender
Of that maternal star light unique.

Star Struck

Many nights you’ve graced my sight
fair Orion, hunter and groom to the abyss,
and yet it would seem an eternity
before we would meet and kiss.

Bought you’d be, and brought to me
by the grace of He who waits.
So, when I die my heart can rise
upon your valor’s brace.

He’d rename Hatsya’s famed
so my soul could light the way.
Dearbhla true poetess of love
‘pon Orion’s sword held sway.

And up I’d rise at my demise
to crest the sky and space.

Dream up another Christmas:
with snowflakes softly falling as tiny fragments of a comet,
that have traveled a millennia of light years,
to reach your cold hands awaiting their warmth,
before someone else sees them descending like fireflies...

And with the merriest,
envision a garden of winter's flowers:  
with lovely orchids, lenten roses, honey suckle and amaryllis;
and pray that the blizzards will not trifle with your affections, 
and bury them under its deepest snow...

And which other gift can surpass this?
Showers of the smallest comet:
running across the December sky,
a splendid display of a thousands lights,
through long streams of glowing dust...

Dream up what you wish and desire,
because no other season is jollier,
as you put up that Christmas Tree
by the widest window, looking over the snowy street, to thrill everybody;
and wouldn't the tiniest star land on this evergreen's tree top?

And with the merriest spirit marvel at the scenery of a sensational and glorious night,
which is really cold, but pleasant to watch with the blithest eyes,
to witness the appearance of a star that will brighten what was lusterless; 
and wouldn't we be glad for the coming of the mightiest of kings...a King who will dwell
among us! And He will speak kindly of His Father living in the highest Heaven...

- Perfect Balance -

The power I yearn to catch

A surplus beauty overflowing hearts
Dew settles, sprinkled gently a wet blanket

Star leather leads me into unknown territory
My senses are imprisoned and takes my breath
Through a crack in the window I can see this magnificent

In a moment, soft breeze of the evening an amazing view
Hypnotised by the nature and it's miraculous glow
The image of happiness, on the menu this evening 

Cobwebs of dream seekers hidden magic 
In four chambers one corner dusty twilight appears
Under silk covers rising and falling oceans mist over
Back breathing from the salted well drawing a bridge of sighs
Under a cradle of moonshine drunken beams starlight  
Rivers of jewels running down the mountain
Inside droplets our soul is set free 
Dew drowning under the fountains

Of eternal beauty enveloped

Falling Star

A moment at night
Something fell outside the door
Sparkling gem so bright

Pick up a shovel
Whilst started to melt soil
Held it on my hand

Can't uttered a word
Vibrant hue and glow persists 
Turn to diamond.

Mind and Sound

Only light can penetrate the 
that resides in the default state 
of mind
I descend from beta to delta 
binaural beats; instantly caught 
between frequencies beyond 

I absorb amplitudes of acoustic 
and I learn to just be earth 
Since I am the earth 
and because I am of
the one that is the source of its 
I've owned the power of 

I realize now that I AM because
HE is since I am from that, a 
Created in the image of a 
and a feeling from the 
Universal Mind
I tune in to this vibration from 
pulse that manipulates 
subconscious minds

Immersed  between 4 and 7 
brainwaves halt to a conscious 
All  chakras are aligned shining 
crown energy 
and now my consciousness 
begins to reap! 
and light begins to penetrate 
the harmonious beams
that were already there
constant and always there 

is now flooded with sound 
that force brainwaves to submit 
to power
of omnipresent sound that 
always was 
and always will be connected to 
the Source from which I came
so I extend exponentially 
physical time and space

I long to embrace the intensity 
of gamma rays
I give way to the coded sounds 
that resonate from the inner 
and continue to connect 
through the binaural beats that 
remind me of before

Always familiar but ignored
until found by gaining 
knowledge of self
I listen with the intent to excel 
while reaping an abundance of 
benefits and rewards
It's already yours

Just reach out and grab it 
as long as intention and ego is 
the universe will correspond 
it will deliver a life to you divine 
and orderly
Just listen to the sounds that 
were there from before
They will guide to to the 
vibration from the core
and it will guide you to connect 
directly with the source

Wonderful Star

                                   There once was a wonderful star 
                                 Who thought she would go very far
                                            Until she fell down
                                         And looked like a clown
                                   She knew she would never go far
                                     She would land near the moon

Solitude: To Yoda, An Ode

Green bark a prism creates,
Feel the pull of earth, you must.

Rotates, a slime of endless hates,
Can hold me not, this world’s crust.

Friendship’s ties, isolation Deflates,
Succumbs, my spaceship, to bitter rust.

Mist, my soul forever permeates,
Lift-off, booms the rocket’s thrust.

My spirit when light returns, elates,
Swamps swell, swallowed hope’s swirling dust.

Trapped, I am, until student from fate
Arrives to learn; Cloud City or bust.

The moon

The summer passed so fast
I thought you and I would never last
You told me our memories won’t be just a blast
Ever was I the one to doubt our past.

Clouds were soon hiding the sun
The difficult hadn’t even yet begun
I saw your shadow everywhere I went
I guess that’s just how much you meant.

But even in the darkest hour
The moon was there-a source of power
And each look made you feel so near
A dream to chase the presence of my fear…

Do I wish upon a star

Don't mess with anybody 
And you'll be okay
From time to time I will write about lesson I've learned
And hopefully you'll learn from it
As I had wished that someone will do that for me
Anyway did you know that whatever measure 
that you wish on somebody 
is the measure you will get yourself?
If you wish bad, you will get bad
If you wish good, you will get good
It's not that I had wished ill on somebody
But just the thought is enough to send God 
having me write this poem
Have I wished bad on somebody?
Let me see now
I am not a saint
But I think the few times I started
God was always the one to stop me in my track
Yes my friend
You cannot wish ill on anyone
As you know you don't have that authority
And you know you cannot make it happen anyway
(For those naughty ones out there)
But in turn it will be against you
We may say bad things
But unless we meant it
It does not have any repercussion against us
But once we mean it
It is a different story
That is why God always searches our heart
And see if we are true
True to the One who made us
True to the person He has made us to be
Luke 6:27-32 says "... Do good to those who hate you
Bless those who curse you..."
You got the idea
So don't turn around and wish something bad on them, okay?
It's a no no :)

Guiding Star

Guiding Star (MJH 8/28/15 lyric)

We’ve gotta take it slow,
Remember who we are,
Live up to what we know,
Follow our guiding star.

We need to take a stand
Against the dark we see;
Extend a helping hand,
Help set our brothers free.

Following shadows on the ground,
They can’t look up ‘cause they’re beaten down.
If they’d just look to their guiding star,
They might recall who and what they are.

Good folks are losing hope;
Can’t see their guiding star.
Sliding down on their last rope,
Forgotten who they are.

Following shadows on the ground,
They can’t look up ‘cause they’re beaten down.
If they’d just look to their guiding star,
They might recall who and what they are.

Rely on what we know.
Remember who we are.
Onward we must go;
Lead to our guiding star.

Silent Night

Salvation was born that long ago night,
In Bethlehem's lowly town.
Little did the townsfolk know,
Emmanuel had come down.
Night time sky began to glow,
Twas a star brighter than the rest.

Never before had so bright a star been seen,
Inciting omens to be guessed.
Good tidings were shared with the terrified shepherds.
Heavenly messengers sang with joy.
The shepherds did as the angels said,
   and worshipped Mary's baby boy.

New Year's Eve

Can’t think about the Year that didn’t last
Can’t fight the time and how it passed so fast…
Voices were cheerful that night
Everyone was full of silver light

I heard the sounds but didn’t care
I couldn’t help but only think and stare…
I dreamed of love that possibly I’ll never share
And of life that was just like a fairytale.

In that second of complete despair
I saw the moon and realized it was all a dare
Then your voice whispered in my ear
Promising me all I needed to hear…

Show Me a Star

Show me a star, one bright, serene, and lofty,
and let me dream of shining at its side.
May that light shine forth, gleaming yet, so softly,
and give light to, all who on earth abide

Let its light guide each soul's precarious journey,
its shadow cloak all when they need to hide.

Oh, star burn on through cauldron, trial and fury.
Help lead each soul through seasons cruel in fate.
One radiant star where all good souls see rightly,
to dash the thrones of malice, greed, and hate.

Brave light shine on, through night when many tremble,
and guide each soul toward your heav'nly gate.

Let that star burn 'til sunrise breaks eternal,
your grace affirmed, you bid each to your side.
Use my last spark to ban the foe infernal,
then gather home your chosen, perfect bride.

Brave light shine on, through night when many tremble,
and guide each soul toward your heav'nly gate.

                                              From Revelation 22:16

I wish there was a star:

I wish there was a star:
That knows what's inside my heart
Listen to my troubled thoughts
That talks to me when no one else is there
And call my name when it has been forgotten,
To make me shine when sadness is letting me down;
Truly, I wish there was a star:
That understands me better,
To bring back the smile stolen from me
And take me along in its journey, 
To a valley where all things shine happily
Where joy blossom every morning, every night
Lives decorated with anointed perfection;
Yes, I believe there is a star:
That loves me most
That sings my birth song,
Inspires me to fulfil my vows
And journey with me beyond the borders

An Ode to LIFE Part 1

An Ode To LIFE

As I lay my head down and start to fall asleep I see myself being carried off to a place and time the place of our Lords birth in Bethlehem of Judea

As in the Bible tells the story of His life and how he lived and died in that human seance and rose on the day He told of

I do not remember being here but I remember the story I was taught so many years ago

As I walk through the streets of Bethlehem I see each scene  and hear  every word as I am learning the story they telling is true

The writer writes of a jealous King  and his way of dealing with his people and of Mary and Joseph who came to Bethlehem to have a child

The story tells of the three wise men  who saw a star in the north and heard of a child  who was born to be the King of the Jews  and come to see and bring Him gifts 

An  angel from the Heavens above came to Mary and Joseph in a dream and told them they had to leave Bethlehem or King Herod would have their son killed 

So they left Bethlehem and went to Egypt and there they lived until King Herod no longer ruled

As I follow along in my dream I see each scene  and hear  every word as I am puzzled by the fact I understand each

I don’t understand why I’m going through this time but I know I must continue on this journey 

As I am pulling through a time where I reach the place of Jesus’ in  Nazareth of Galilee

As I watched Him grow and work in His father's shop I could see the thing in Him that were with me

As I walk along the streets and look around I hear the people talk of a child that speaks of wondrous love that’s all forgiving and of a Father in Heaven that’s loving and true.

On a very wonderful night
Two-thousand years ago 
A beautiful baby boy was born
And in the sky a star did show

From Heaven above
Jesus was sent here to earth
Sent by His Father to grace
Us all the way  with His birth

The Three Wise Men didn't know
But they just followed that star
The voice that told them to go
So they traveled for Him that far

Full of joy they worshiped Him
They offered Him gifts right to the brim
Jesus came to die for us upon the cross
And with His blood for us paid the cost.

Star Of Bethlehem

A bright announcing beacon

Of that divinely vivid moment

Casting out it’s cleansing light

For all to see and partake of

Calling the Magi to the manger

Purity of deference for the Messiah

Illuming human shadows with belief

Granting all the peoples a choice

And the gift of chance for…eternity

The First Gift

There’s news for the young and news for the old,
And news for a world lonely and cold,
And down through the ages this story’s been told
How Love was revealed to all.

Into the world that was full of strife 
God told Mary that she would give life
To a boy-child, and become Joseph’s wife 
And not to be afraid, at all.	

In order to keep the law of the land, 
They traveled in winter over hills, rocks and sand. 
To Bethlehem they went, hand in hand
But there were no rooms for them all. 

The inn keeper said, ‘I’ve no rooms inside
But out here there’s a stable; around the side,
So in you all come, it’s dry and wide.
They all trooped inside, one and all.

The donkey and ox shared their bed in the straw.
Joseph spread their blankets over the floor
He put hay in the manger, and then saw 
Mary give birth in the stall.

He went to her side and beheld the sight.
In wonder he helped her through the long winter night.
They placed the babe snug and tight
In the manger; He slept through it all.

The first to hear were watchers of sheep 
Wrapped up in their robes, their watch to keep,
Staying awake, they did not sleep, 
Until the sun appeared over all.

While they sat in the fields all through that night,
The light from a bright star gave them a fright,
Until the messenger came within sight, 
And pointed the way to the stall. 

This brightest star shone across every nation;
It showed the way on this special occasion,
For three wise of men, who with elation, 
Followed this star to the stall. 

First shepherds, then kings entered the door
Of the humble stable, where Jesus they saw, 
Among lowing cattle, in a bed of straw;
God’s brightest star; born for all.

Each offered their gifts to the one who would give
His life, so we might know how to live.
When we do wrong, with love He’ll forgive,
So we can forgive one and all.

At Christmas time, like that first gift from heaven, 
There’s love received with each gift that is given,
Wrapped in fine paper and sparkling ribbon,
To remind us God’s love, shines for all.

The words set to rhyme and rearranged,
This story throughout time, unchanged.
Just as God's love has never changed,
It is here and now for all.
