Christmas Gift

On 12/24/09 Harry Finn and Jenny Anderson posted a series of poems for the crew of the USS Hawking:

In Memorium

Jillian
Joyful whisper
Compassionate hands healing
Reflected in tears
Lost note in the tune

Active

Matt
Silent duty
Weighted by history
Running away from anguish
Running towards the deeper truths

Simba
Secret stories
Many hidden chambers
Deep the lion’s heart
Discoveries await, without and within

Emily
Ordered chaos
Layers of confusion
Seeking self, seeking meaning
In the emptiness of eternity

Jill
Fearful symmetry
Dark tasks refined
In choices, born anew
What future in the void?

Tatiana
Many shadows
Conflicted in desire
Flitting from ice to flame
Truth in service to others

Vince
Wave rider
Space his sea
Weaving paths between stars
Following a wild thought’s course

Ender
Walking wounded
Healing other’s ills
Sorrow clothed in mirth
Semblance of frenzy in will

Javier
Honor’s heart
Shelter of courage
Laughter’s embrace, comfort’s shoulder
Home so far from home

T’Shaini
Dream traveler
Protector of souls
Beloved strength, liquid comfort
Second star to the right

Nils
Faithful purpose
Forged in griefs
Solace sought in reason
Reason opening truth’s celestial doors

Hawking
Silver Arrow
Released into mystery
Scholar, Sage, Soldier, Salvation
Far greater than its sum
