electric heaters versus tabletops is a nil draw
Age old wisdom scarred not flamed. A dozen baked bees in an hour glass perturbed. And left undisturbed as a minotaur sunbathing on a single blade of grass on a sixty acre lawn. At dusk. At dawn. Week by week....Read More

Wild Blue Land
Wild Blue Land

Such wind rushed by nearly blowing me to the side;
filling my vision so wide, wide dotted with white puffs, 
rolling clumps,  or whispy streaks of froth;
gliding slyly in the ocean of an azure sky.

Mentally Ill
Sometimes it is just too much 
I am up and want to touch
I am jovial and part of the crowd

Acceptance
Opened like a morning leaf
exposed beneath the moon,
Resting in the tentacles
of a clouded ink coccoon.

a lantern in the wilderness
the miracle of flight.
Dancing on the tabletops
or falling from a swing,
