It Is Enough

I am dark shadows and tear-stained cheeks. I am bursting laughter and bruised hips. I am a brooding damp fog and twisted smiles. I am tormented memories and soft silk. I am covered in anguish and measured lines. I am tracing and repeating and inward mind. I am troubled of spirit and a passionate desire. […]

A Vivid Memory

Undressed you a million times, In a million different ways, In my mind a vivid memory, I can paint you blindly, I feel like you’re breathing inside of me, My hands keep wandering over my hips, Along the curves of these thighs, Delicious words echo in my mind. As memories of those lives long-passed flow, […]

A Natural Symphony

Today, as I often do, I surrendered to the music of the ocean waves surging and retreating against the shore, the birds, oh the birds!, in their marvelous song, chirps and whistles and shrill remarks, the fuzzy bumblebees and the flies and hornets buzzing suddenly as they move from dandelion to dandelion, water cascading over […]

Heard in a Seashell One Evening

Relentless sway Rise and fall Wet, wet, dry Shifting tiny things Cradling the old Cold and full of life Warm and empty Filled with song and movement Movement, movement Rising again Bringing back new life A cry! An awakening Hopeful, peaceful, fierce Fits of rage, necessary Glassy calm Creator Destroyer Dying, crying, poison! poison! How […]

Thoughts Like A Theme Park (Part 1 ) – REBLOG

There are some amazingly good lines in O.D.’s piece and I look forward to seeing where he takes us next in this series… I ruminate over an unearthly amount of time here, This medium and I bleed into each other, A testament to our unspoken blood oath. Quite the task, … Thoughts Like A Theme […]

Carousel (meet me at the carnival pt 2)

Painted cheeks and a fistful of tokens Girly giggles tugging daddy’s hand with Cotton candy fingers Screaming horses stampeding past Wearing saddles of red and blue A trumpeting elephant, trunk held high The giant white rooster’s purple saddle Garish music begins slowly Building in tempo and volume Smudged faces racing past Gripping striped poles Covered […]
