Premium Member I Would Like To Listen
I would like to hear
with no urgent need to speak
and to respond
without reacting,

I would like to hear
your experience with faith and faithless communities,
and atheistic,
and secular believers
and unbelievers,
communal investment positive
and fear and anger
flight and fight negative,
and pathological,
and dissonant.

And I would like...Read More

You wear a
Smile and a simple

Soft music

Suppers in the stove

Just me and you
Got something

Time to  be lovers

Abstracted eyes study plasmid menus.
A rattle of gleams
stirs coffee in a Montmartre café.
A Cairo belly dancer glistens
in her cocoon of sequined waves,
wine glasses tinkle, while eyes speak.
An old Catalan hotel,
meals shared with a guitar playing moon.
Starry Singapore ferry rides;
we have...Read More

I jumped on a bullfrog’s back.
He screamed, startled.
I calmed him down.
Then we started talking.

Coffee, lunch, no suppers.
He is my guy now.
But I had to take things slowly
And pretend I was subtle.

Sedate little me, bullfrog’s girl.
Façade in place twenty-four seven,
So I...Read More

Yearning for A Home Long Gone
Standing in the ankle high emerald green grass of my 
great-aunts property barefoot, hearing the creak of wood
on steel.
My daughter and husband are in the house napping, dreaming tenderly about sweet things. 

Creak, crick, creak, crick goes the wood crying...Read More

Here is my dreamiest, dream job.
I will get to drive a fire truck and use the sirens - all the way to work and back. The gasoline will be paid for by my company.
There will be no committees, and...Read More

Premium Member If There Were Just More Porches
An old house with an old porch
Is a most miraculous thing.
Politics are settled, children admonished,
Babies shown off and growing up, 
Advice shared – we need more porches,
Fewer therapists, values taught, not anything goes. 
Where mothers wait for suppers to cook,
And...Read More

Open Your Eyes
"Open Your Eyes"
by:  Eric L. Boddie

In my quest to find the Light
I found so many things hidden in plain sight
A simple question of why is what I asked of Christ
He Said "He Who Searches For Me Will Be Found...Read More

As Little Boys
As little boys 
we rode bikes
fast down the dunes,
on the vertical side
of Sand City

Big tires creased
deep furrows 
in the down-slope,
same as boats trailing
wakes upon the swell

At the leeward portion
of the great sand hills
the long bronze 
shadows of late noon 
stretched...Read More

Fabrics finding fabrications
A prawn masquerading as a peanut can be quite disturbing. So many times a peel is a garment used to shroud. A tentacle hidden. Here and there. Then to reappear with an often violent burst of becoming. A burst of...Read More

Premium Member UnWoven Memories
I grew up and out on a four family-owned,
and cooperatively-organized,
extended matriarchal farm.

Four interdependent 1940s through 1970s patriarchally managed businesses,
without substantial questions about who should wear pants,
yet with a surprising matriarchal cooperative understory.

The boxers outnumbered the panties,
but the panties had full...Read More

A salty spray is a senseless stationary smelling spitting sprite How rather dangerous
Petrified pottery ponders plots. Ploys play putting purring. And a frantically fraternising pickle arch can glow on many a skyline at dusk. In many hues. Many dusks many arches many hues and many hues mean many hundreds and many hundreds...Read More

Premium Member My pen pleads

My pen pleads 

Lonely nights offer moments of silence
and one dish suppers where candlelight seems a waste
Seated with pen in hand, I smooth the ruffles beneath
as if that will help the words flow

Upon closer inspection I find
fancy patterns on the...Read More

demystification so clap clap clap then

aerodynamics of hairdressing salons with two bulls

Premium Member Church Suppers
Church suppers in town are such fun,
And the genuine home cooking is second to none.
One man said to the server, “They ran out of my favorite pie!”
“Take it out of the tip,” was her hurried reply.

My feet are shrinking and unbearable is my weight

The pulse of life is altered,
a dimension set apart
closed in behind streaming window panes.
Half of life falls away . . .
I wonder why it seemed consequential yesterday.

Suspended . . .
unshelved a world of joys duty pushes back,
sweet pleasures always whispering,
but...Read More

Premium Member A Cowboy Poet
Hank had rode the range a-punchin' cattle fer nigh on fifty years,
Ridin' through Texas northers and brandin' cantankerous steers.
He'd herded ornery longhorns along the Chisolm Trail to Abilene.
He'd signed on with the Triple D Ranch when he was about seventeen.
