No Title, I Just Wrote What I Felt
I’m sick of needing to choose
Between grass stains and sunburns 
All the kids these days think
It’s cool to drink alcohol and sit
In the back seat of limousines.
My dad always told me when
He was young he played with sticks
And rocks and...Read More

Two Broken Souls, Part I
As Cole rode across the Dakota prairie,
sweating a bit under the suns harsh bite,
he saw ahead of him a slight woman’s form,
she walked bare-footed, naked, and pale white.

Sunburns had reddened her shoulders and neck,
and her feet bled with every single...Read More

Premium Member MONDAY, MONDAY

Slowly stretching Monday grunts
rubs its eyes, rolls slightly left, farts.
An achy sun shuffles about the room,
shields itself from the mirror’s reflection,
mutters to itself “Clouds!  Where are the clouds?”
“Oh, how I hate those five o’clock shadows.”
“Damn the Sun dials!”
No double...Read More

everyday struggle with a smile of inspiration
ice on my knees
heating pads on my back
splinters in the soles of my feet
cuts and bruises on each arm from shoulder to back hand
blisters on each toe
sunburns on my forehead and each of my cheeks
toothpicks holding both eyelids open
sneezing and...Read More

When We Were Young
When we were young
Summer stretched
In brilliant splendor
As the last school bell tolled
We spilled forth from
School marm’s arms
And greeted freedom
In the jeweled waters 
of beach and stream
With picnics, sunburns 
And warm summer nights
In tents
Listening drowsily to the cicadas song

The Four Seasons
As I stare into the night,
I admire the star-packed sky.
The bright twinkling stars give out light,
Piercing the darkness for us to see by.

How different it is from the day,
When I enjoy the fresh morning air.
During the springtime in May,
Watching a...Read More

A Heart Deferred
What happens to a broken heart?

Does it shrivel and shrink like toes under water?
Or blister and break apart—
Like sunburns getting ever hotter?
Does it feel crushed like a battered rock by the sea?
Or bleed like a wound—
That soon ceases to be?

Maybe...Read More

Where I'm From
Where I’m From

I’m from tea parties and tutu’s,
From fingernail painting and Oreo cookies.
I’m from jumping on the trampoline,
And water sprinklers in the front yard.
I’m from summer days and sleepovers,
From zoo trips with momma,
And long car rides on summer vacation.
From scary...Read More

Mother's Day Tribute
The joy of Motherhood cannot be measured
Raising a child as a mom is treasured
The skinned knees, the sunburns, the social issues
The runny nose, mom just happens to have a tissue
The mother part comes first, then comes being a wife
Spouses can...Read More

Scarlet Sunburns
Sweat droplets race,
salty and excited
running into waves 
there is no shade,
no shade,
only light
beating down upon my face,
I rejoice in the rhymic flow of a cool shower,
pulse radiates in this weather,
scalding light,
scalding light,
beating down,
beating my face,
escape from winter,
this is the opposite,
how...Read More

Only Eileen
Only Eileen 
Dares to tell me 
How much I weight 
... My self-worth 
In pounds, 
And In pennies; 
In the black market, 
In EBay, 
Wall Street, 
Antic shops, 
And in cheap and cheek, 
Bazaars. 

Only Eileen 
Knows 
Who I am,...Read More
