Being born on April 18,1966 in Elizabeth, New Jersey- I am the defender of the underdog. I write poems about the planet like saving the plant kingdom, our oceans, and wildlife and spirituality. Being 4th generation First Nations of Canada. I have an affinity to the Gaia –Mother Earth and her creatures.
Christina Sunrise is one of my alias’s. Christina means follower of Christ. I write about Jesus and his word and life. I wrote a poem entitled “When Jesus Spoke” and it is on www.poemhunter.com. Sunrise in Slavic is Zaria and means “Morning Star”. I wrote a poem that praises our Earth’s morning star in “We Praise You Mother Earth and Sister Sun”. I come from Slavic descent and one of my cartoon characters names is Suzaria and she has her own solar system named after her. I have written poems to help to make a change in people’s thinking, for I feel we are all change agents.
Below is a poem about the poet named Christina Sunrise. I hope you enjoy this poem and the one that follow in this anthology.
Birds, birds everywhere,
flying through the sky without care.
Reminding us how graceful life can be,
as they fly from tree to tree.
Respect women for they bring a lot into this world
they are just more than procreators bringing in girl or a little boy.
They are the caregivers, the nurturers, and have a gentle touch
do respect feminine touch and honor it more than a bunch.
I told Jesus when I was standing with candle in hand-
I don't feel comfortable to light this-
I know it is witchcraft.
I was in a church on Christmas and knew the score
Oil and water do not mix,
this oil slick has no quick fix.
The dark black goo not only affects me and you,
but SEA LIFE in our OCEANS too.
