Morning Star


I a practicing Roman Catholic. I sing in the church choir, my children go to religious Ed classes, we always pray together before dinner, hoping the saying is true.

That being said, since I was a small child I was always drawn to Native American spirituality. A belief in nature, giving back after taking, thanking my maker for his gifts.

I walk the red road at times and am somehow sidetracked. Yet, it is always there when I need it.

And every once I’m a while, words come from somewhere and I write them down. Here are some words.

Morning Star

Morning Star,
You’re unyielding light
shines down on us.
Two legged, four legged
and all the creatures sympathetically.

Your blinding brightness beckons me.
Do I look away?

I bathe the in your beauty.
You give me hope.

Morning Star,
I beg that you give me strength
As I begin my day in your glory.
I am inspired by you
as I am humbled and in awe.
Thank you.

Morning Star,
Whisper to me.
Tell me your secrets
so that I too can become
a light in Grandfather’s eyes.

My light has dimmed
And become dull.
This day is all I have
From sun up to sundown.
I have only moments to shine.

How do I brighten?
All of creation lends itself
To each other
As we walk the red road of healing.

Do I heal?
Do I hide?
Do I live?


About goplayintraffic

My Blog, which began as a mommy blog and turned into a writing website,, is the product of my years of being home with my children and trying to find ways to keep myself sane. I have always had this feeling, coming from a single mother, that I have to contribute financially and that I have to be able to take care of myself and my children. having been married, being a NYC school teacher, having four children, living in Newtown, CT and trying to find a way to get through each day with a smile has always been something I've strived for. My stories, articles and poems will do a lot of things but mostly make you feel. I think that is what is so wonderful about having the ability to write. I have been given the gift of taking my emotions and transferring them to written word. Once that is done, I can share those words with others who may feel better, maybe just for a moment, but better nonetheless having read my words. I am glad you are here and hope you will stay:)
