Lightning

One wrong misstep Misplaced word Lost or perhaps unspoken Transformation from angel to… Something else electrifying Terrifying Arms spread wide Fingertips glowing Chin to chest Slowing rising Like a crucified messiah Hair spreading out lifting Energetic aggressive current Kkkkzzzapping Pops snaps Eyes widening Jaw drops Released cloudburst of energy Bright screams Blue light radiates out […]

Muddy Puddle

Blue Eyes in the Rain

As I hurried ‘round the bend Of the wooded trail near my home I came upon her standing there In the pouring down rain Her face turned up Toward the clouded grey sky I stepped back into the shadows My eyes could scarce look away as She stood there absolutely naked Exposed Alone Vulnerable Her […]

A Heavy Metal Love Story

During the yearly music festival, it can get wild out here. Especially during the guitar-screaming, bass-pounding, throat-numbing heavy metal days… or should I say nights? Everywhere you look there’s leather and jeans, long hair and tits. Boots and beer. Inked flesh and pierced skin. This year was no exception and was turning out to be […]

Down the Eaves

curled up on the porch my cheek resting upon my tear-soaked hands the rain pounding down the roof and yet all I can think about is the sound of your voice caressing me and how I long to feel your body pressed against my skin and your fingers threading in my hair as our lips […]

A Future (Im)possible

As I stand here gazing out my window at the evening sky, clouds burning red, mountains a rosey pink, trees and fields fading in the night, stars winking into existence, landscape disappearing, making way for the dancing auroras and the moon partially clothed in her full splendor, my mind drifts. I wonder at possibilities. Could […]

The rain is pouring down and it seems to etch deep within my soul – trickles and torrents washing out the sand and soft mud of life leaving behind only the hard bedrock of my internal reality. Will my heart ever be made whole again? Will my love be returned in kind? Will healing come […]

60 Second Pluviophile

Pluviophile: (n) a lover of rain; someone who finds joy and peace of mind during rainy days. One minute. Just one minute of a gentle spring rain. Spring birds calling. I think you can hear the neighbor’s goats a couple times. You can’t see it yet, but fresh green growing things are coming up under […]

Dreams and Desire

Day after day I gaze out my window Chin resting upon my folded hand Rain smudges the surrounding landscape A sigh escapes my quivering lips My heart squeezes and gasps Far away across the waves I yearn for him I can envision him going about his day Longing wells up How I desire to be […]

Snow and Hot Tubs

Okay, so it’s almost winter here in my part of Alaska. The snow is here, although barely enough to mention, but still. Today it’s actually pouring rain out my window, which I absolutely love. However, I am ready for full winter. Winter, with its new set of clothing, crystals of white linking hands to cover […]
