High Tide

I felt your pull and how could I fight it? Why would I? Your waves gently washed over my heart and filled all the tidepools of my soul. You brought life and fresh oxygen to my limp and lifeless hands. When your fingers slid over and around my thighs, I opened myself completely to you, […]

A New Name

Twisted and full of fury Burning with something deeper More real than this earth Surrounded and engulfed Magnificent I am delighted in you I am a doe clinging to rock cliffs, safe within, always finding my foothold I am an albatross soaring while the auroras dance above me, my wings dip and I spin I […]

Far-Flung Galaxies

my fingers slip through murky ink gravel rushes towards my face these tears will stay inside harboring all the hate and dread and sadness prone to stargaze I lift my chin looking for that one pale red star mist swirls around my shoulders letters and code drift aimlessly before my eyes stretching my hand out […]

Wild Animals

It’s not that I really have to battle any real wild animals. I live rurally. Pretty rural. Out in the wilds of Alaska. But they’re out there… I know they are. Oh wait….: I mean honestly… this is what I primarily see. Mostly wild. I say mostly because to be honest, if they hear my […]

Hesperus

every indigo evening I scoop up the night sky within the palms of my dirty earth-stained hands there’s still the dark damp soil of the day’s passing beneath my nails and the dried banks of river beds from those afternoon tears still, I pick out the stars and the space dust and the sun-smudged traces […]

Gone Fishin’

I’m around… sort of. Summer in Alaska. Busy. I’ve been the last few days doing a type of subsistence fishing called set-net. It’s moderately labor intensive but worth it to teach others the “old ways”. So here are a few pics, should my view interest you. Mostly silver salmon, which is exactly what I wanted. […]

Can You Feel Them?
