MY LONGING FOR THE NIGHT. POEM BY KATHRYN ANDREN

Many hours of heart’s delight

receiving stars in chill of night

I feel you friends, teachers and guides

near and far, whispering wise

 

The Zodiac marks time, through space

It soul’s choice to descend and find this place

 

Our home planet, place of birth

With gratitude we arrive on Earth

Souls descend through Sacred hoop

Ancestors align on Galactic loop

 

Cosmic keys and a Solstice Sun, 

My mystical man Orion

We honor four directions:  

Bull, Human, Eagle, Lion

 

Spontaneously in the light of day

While missing friends in garden play

Those starry scenes from black of night

Twinkle through the blue in full daylight

 

Not just up, or out or down

Suddenly the stars are all around

Pollux, Castor, Capella, Procyon

Regulus, heart of the Lion

 

There’s Queen Cassiopeia with her  crown, 

Her seven daughters staring down

There’s Aldebaran, red eye of the bull

Blue sparkling Sirius fills me full

 

For lifetimes, moons, I’ve stared above

Journeying through stars I love

At dawn when day star returns its light

I feel my longing for the night

 

These blessed stars, alive in me

Radiate wisdom for all to see

Heaven above and Earth below

One in the same, it is so
