Radiance

Looking within, I see a vast darkness, twisting trails and hollows best left unseen. Vines wrap around my weakened ankles while my spine rattles in desperation. Looking at you, I see verdant green and a cool breeze rustling the branches. A breath of salty air fills my lungs. I inhale your scent deep inside. You […]

Microcosm

The longer I looked the more I saw Bits of grey dotted with green Green pushed to pink Pink with yellow centers Beetles skittering, flies bumbling Pollen transfers Little bits of dirt settling here, there A seed dropped, fell to its side Mouse whiskers then a sleek body Tiptoeing a paw flips a leaf over […]

Her Name Was Love

As a young woman, she moved with an easy grace and light skipping footsteps, the bloom of youth fresh upon her lovely face, her ripe firm breasts and long limber legs. The bright warm sun quickly dried the occasional rain of tears down her tender cheeks. New life seemed to spring from each narrow footprint […]

An Afternoon Walk

Walking through the summer woods, I lose myself in a fantastical magical world. The only way to fully immerse myself is in my natural state. Bare feet sinking in the deep mosses and skirting the many berry patches. The light makes it way feebly through the interlaced branches of spruce and the occasional birch tree. […]

Love Elemental

How could I fully explain the burning desire I have for you? Could I paint a scorching picture that would nearly singe your fingertips? Or weave fiery hot lyrics complete with a feverish tempo? Perhaps send you heated passionate photographs enough to raise your temperature? What would it take to perfectly describe the wet, wanting […]
