Ancestral Guides Filling the Room
As she meditated the room brightened.
Streaks of energy came in and lightened.
She did not flinch, used to such things.
The whirls of essence danced in her rings.
She shut off her eyes and concentrated.
Hoping her front latch was firmly gated.
She understood...Read More

A Shadow Of Myself
swoon, 10th grade,
I've never thought much about shadows until now
I could wax lyrical on this subject if I only knew how
I love to look at trees in the twilight
They become silhouettes making shadows to delight
Many magnificent pictures that come to mind
Sunny days...Read More

Stars inspire to sway and move in the day
swoon, adventure, atheist, cool, education, environment, history, science,
No cares about relativism, just truth,
Where was that bone by ratio of this?

The Memories Dance With Me
swoon, 10th grade,

Sometimes with my husband
But mostly with the broom
In the fifties when I was in...Read More
swoon, animal, scary, silly,
Her bulbous profile and pungent odor
That sunken chin and busy motor
A tremulous scowl crosses her flaring lips
From her cup rum she gulps, while others sip
Her mouth opens wide in a hideous grin
Displays shocking tooth decay within
Some teeth rotten; others chipped
The grand ball
The Grand Ball.
The amorous ambient moon
Hung full and high
Perched within the Twinkling
Dark velveteen pincushion sky
The welcoming warmth of a pleasant
Ambles on at a steady pace
Orange bright light
Seeps through large arched windows
From the stately house on yonder hill
Awaiting carriages to...Read More

Immensely I love you beyond the breath I acquire;

swoon, memory, words,
Getting older brings forgetting,
One by one,
My long-known friendly words,
Amassed and loved since childhood.
Against my will, words fly out of my mind’s window.
Trying to recapture them leads only to
Headache and frustration -
They will not be...Read More
The Casualness Of Casualties
swoon, death, evil, family, fate, life, love, violence,
In the intimate interlace of chance and fate, in the ultimate interplay of time and place, and with the consummate checkmate of my human dignity, all that is -- is over, in the stormy, swarming space of mere moments.

to bow to early morning breeze
WE RAISE THEM UP
swoon, music, song, uplifting,
Today we sing
Great joy we bring
To those sweet souls
Words long forgotten
For just a while we take them to
a peaceful magical place
a place they knew
'Bee' put on a bar-be-que for bringing up the past,
and of course he added drinking. Now the die was caste
for stories bringing laughter from dubious glory days,
when our oats were being sown while living single ways.
Naturally it wasn't long before...Read More
