Turn to the sun

Drink a glass of light

a rain of petals

dance around your feet

Turn to the Sun

pour of glass of stars

a mist of gold

immerse you in its heap

Turn to the sun

catch a gem of blood

a pulse of light

cause your heart to breathe

Turn to the sun

cross the path at night

a voice of stars

Finds flowers that sing

Turn to the sun

Drink a drop of vision

darkness' awakening

receives angels that speak

Turn to the sun

Hold its flashing smiles

As transparent as glass

is your soul to me

Into the Night

Into the Night
Down fast she falls
When her eyes dream
so dark in the pall
In winter's care, she lies

When heaven cries
weeping is found
her cheeks glisten wet
in the depths of evenstar
and make a waterfall
into caverns below the surface
carving rivers in the rocks
that lay in the foundations of her soul.

Laid waste by time
softened by spring rains
falling in the dead of night
slivers of pale green
push through to the sky
stretching towards a mystery

Into the night
it falls away towards day
and becomes a glistening of light ... from the horizon.

Ave Maris Stella

AVE maris stella,
Dei Mater alma,
atque semper Virgo,
felix caeli porta. 
HAIL, Thou Star of the ocean,
portal of the sky
ever Virgin Mother
Of the Lord Most High
Sumens illud Ave
Gabrielis ore,
funda nos in pace,
mutans Hevae nomen. 
O by Gabriel's Ave,
Uttered long ago
Eva's name reversing
established peace below.
Solve vincula reis,
profer lumen caecis
mala nostra pelle,
bona cuncta posce. 
Break the captives fetters,
light on blindness pour,
All our ills expelling
every bliss implore
Monstra te esse matrem:
sumat per te preces,
qui pro nobis natus,
tulit esse tuus. 
Show thyself a Mother,
offer Him our sighs
Who for us Incarnate
did not Thee despise
Virgo singularis,
inter omnes mites,
nos culpis solutos,
mites fac et castos. 
Virgin of all virgins
to Thy shelter take us
gentlest of the gentle
chaste and gentle make us
Vitam praesta puram,
iter para tutum:
ut videntes Iesum
semper collaetemur. 
Still as on we journey
Help our weak endeavor
Till with Thee and Jesus
We rejoice forever
Sit laus Deo Patri,
summo Christo decus,
Spiritui Sancto,
tribus honor unus. Amen. 
Through the highest heaven
To the Almighty Three
Father, Son and Spirit
One same Glory Be. Amen.
