Poetry premier

If you’ve been following my other blog, Flying Star Feng Shui, you know me as a reader of the every changing stars tied to Chinese feng shui.

Interestingly, when I write my Flying Star Feng Shui outlooks each month I don’t just look at the Stars, I also meditate on what they mean for us for the coming month. 

More recently other things have begun to come forth and one of those things is poetry.

Some of this poetry is insightful and I know exactly what it’s referring to.  Other poems are wistful, lighthearted, dark and a couple have been downright depressing!  (I’ll avoid posting those.)

Anyway, a good friend of mine read them and suggested that I share them with the world so that’s what this blog is all about — simple poetry.

I thought that the full moon total eclipse would be a good launch date given that the last time this event occurred on December 21 was back in 1638 (way before my time).

Enjoy the poems and be sure to share this blog with your friends.

Hugs,

Chriss Barr

A child’s prayer

Now I lay
My sleepy head
Upon my pillow
Upon my bed.

In sweet dreams
I will delight
While my angels watch over me
Through the night.

The journey

Nimble
She climbs the stairsWoman holding candle
Unaware of the
Darkness around her

The light she holds
Guides the way
Unwavering
She continues

At the top of the stairs
Awaits the door
Opening wide
The light shines forth

She enters
Unassuming, unexpectant
Merely continuing
On her journey

The garden

Persistent in the garden

He prunes and tends

Vines bearing fruit

He eats plentifully

Wisdom

Hallowed halls are these
Mindful of those before
Wise
Wisdom fills the air

Contemplation

Empty is the room
Where the old man sits
Quiet, contemplative
Alone with his thoughts

Sunrise

Tick, tock
Rapid fire the light
Heat rising like a flame
The night is gone.
