We are all written in the stars…


Love Unending


We grieve for those we’ve never met

Yet still have touched our hearts

For in this world of chaos

We’re consoled through the arts-

For art shows us in our humanness

Our condition is the same

As death does not discriminate

By class, or faith, or fame-

So let’s create with great passion

The world we want to see

Appreciate each other

For all we came to be-

And breathe our love into the world

Until our final breath

For love and soul complete our whole

And love does not face death~


In the Stars


She felt everything so deeply

It moved from flesh to soul

And she knew no separation

From the body to the soul-

So harshness often plagued her

On her very human route

Yet somehow empathy stepped in

When she was filled with doubt-

And so the woman kept on

When keeping on was hard

She drew from deep compassion

Which was written in her cards-

And she found her joy and laughter

In the moments most bizarre

And by looking up on cloudless nights

To bless upon a star~
