hips swivel, i shimmy
over to spouse,
my finger seriously
pointing at him,
sure sparkling eyes.

my pointer aiming
his way, wanting
its way with him.

my darling’s attention,
intentionally on me -

my lips close in
on my lover,
i sing,
“i want you…”

mindfully pointing
at him,
my finger taps
onto my wrist,

Well, sometimes.

Soon, I must awake
From this deep, traumatized,
Deadly, dreary, doomed, dream
Of the devil and it's advocates
Afflicting my mind 
Like a plague;
A ferocious flash flood
With a  dubious proclamation:
Ah! the great mamba is gone?
An Iroko tree has fallen!

The wicked, cold, cruel,
Clamy, claws...Read More

Burst of brandished flaming arrow,
Thump of bunnies against my chest,
Cupid’s straight pointer did narrow,
Continue my family crest.

Squawking souls of birds in my nest,
Potent from moonstruck bolero,
Crescendo of lust’s citrus zest —
Cock-a-hoop’s sunstruck sombrero.

Please, mention his name?

That's challenging his life.

Confronting him.

Roses in the grave
blossomed in no sunlight's glare.
Surprised it survived- timeless.
Roses in the grave
small dark thorns spiked the dead.
Worthless effort leads no changes.
With a dead face you stocked yourself to feel attached;
took your guesses- short-sighted assumptions,
but I assure you that...Read More

Most effective teachers
are perpetually curious students.

Most accomplished chefs
have voracious appetites
for nutritional taste
and nurturing fragrance.

Most resilient lovers of here and now life

passionate splotches

Devin's First Deer, Part I

There’s something about my love for my daughter, 
maybe it’s all the lessons I have taught her.

her growing independence, she’s too old to play. 
Yes, there have been many times I...Read More

Easter Dresses Unremembered

I bought a new dress, no not for Easter,
Though it started my mind to wandering,
To Easters ago, ago.

Wandering like a pointer finding
Just the right light to illuminate,
The memories I wanted so.
