Shopping in the clouds
You’ve walked those streets a thousand times and still
                      You end up here. Regret none of it –Dorianne Laux

Wisdom Was Found

The day moves me into this ultimate search
Of the principality that Lords over life
And rules over Kings, nobles, aged and Princes
As my desire yearns for that which is profitable to direct.
Steadfastly aiming to avoid the natural consequences
Invited by...Read More

Weapon of mass destruction,
Born to the family called Earth,
Name Corona, last name Virus,

Nationality China, who premeditatedly planned
The glint of bodies: naked, suited or adorned,
Down by the old soul (earth).

Premium Member Unconditional Surrender to Love
Liquescent sunset fades away, 
From the calm ocean horizon; 
Slow ease, moving, 
Mingling hues of scarlet, 
Coral mood of twilight. 

Immerse in the serene ocean music, 
Waves begin to creep within reach; 
Graceful pull, backs away, 
To its labyrinth fathoms...Read More

Will you be my quarantine
What’s all this
Inch tapes out
Everyone measuring distance
They call it
‘Social distancing’
Never heard
Of any such thing
After all
Man is gregarious 
He, she and us
Add to it
That one more bit 
About ‘Self isolation’
Living all alone
Not a soul around, 
Absolutely none
But wait
This we’ve
Already been practising...Read More

Premium Member Bodega Talk

I empty my basket at the counter.

Six individual cans of strong imported beer.
A plastic bottle of ’Tums’ antacids.
A box of frozen French Bread Pizza.
A jar of jalapeno peppers.

The wiry cute middle-aged blond
checks the items, then checks me out.
I flash my...Read More

Some only aged as young as three or four
Rejected by their parents, shown the door

As by themselves, travel hundreds of miles
To a life of misery as no longer have smiles

Some become lucky but; most of them...Read More

Should we shed the boy and be a man?
Shoot of spirit wild -to be tamed in the tamed land.

this cyclical passthrough is a strengthened constitution.

After Violins, Buoyant Triangles on Red Horizon
Morning brews sunrise colors-
yolk yellow seeping over 

edges; light sterling silver 
strung; rubbed linens ironed 

across the rim. The creatural
world-a lime olive, sea blue 

cup- has a view from space:
mottled tints- mud grey, green. Deep.

Sienna red flames bedewed.
Aged worn cotton...Read More

Premium Member ARIA
A radio aired an awful auld aria,
Astounding all my aged aural edifices 
In eerie aura of araucaria trees
Aching angrily in a loud typhonic breeze.

My brain wanted to burrow to escape the pain
Of sounds as a warren of rabid jackrabbits
Digging to...Read More

And its measure creates order for

In Our passion, in love, We are satisfied
And in Our love We embody confirmation
Where are We traveling to, in Our intimate

Once I told a married Baptist missionary, I wanted to be one.  Carol said, "Roxanne, Everett needs missionaries too."  She meant I should bloom where I was planted.  But we both were much younger then.

When children and adults were not at war
There once was a point in time and space,
When children and adults were not at war,
When children were free to explore,
When adults were far enough away to ignore,
But close enough to adore.

I was a child in that time and in...Read More

Young girls amongst ladies prospects groups of all age,
Two genders, naught a third, being pointless at this stage,

I identify a lot with Billy The Kid.
The fact that we share the same name likely has much to do with it,
but also because both he and I are generally misunderstood.

I was perusing on the Net

An Interesting woman, anyway
Interesting and talented too
Amazing what she succeeded to do
After a very late start
Aged 78 before painting Folk Art
