Premium Member Commanding Solo Performances
It had been a hellish week.

On Monday
my lonely and tired AfricanAmerican husband
told me, as gently as possible,
that what I had hoped was a temporary separation
is to be extended into perpetuity.

This separation had been scheduled to terminate
when my Fetal Alcohol daughter...Read More

The silence fell like winter snow
The silence fell like winter snow,
Wrapping the landscape in an eerie quietness,

For a moment,
Bringing calm,
to our collective madness,

A gift
From heaven,

A glimpse offered,
As to what it is to be sane,

A Stillness,
That we may know our way back,
In the storm.

beleza que se nota na voz,

A beleza que liberta –
Liberta uma alegria de viver o melhor....Read More

Old Woman


She slipped into a coma,
fell away,
her ghost groping;
not blind, but blinded,
as if the life in her head
were too bright.

We bundled her things,
squeezing shoulders,
taking deep breaths
dizzy with relief.
A nurse hastily covering
gray naked toes.

The old woman found herself
on her mother’s lap.
Dead pets,

Exposure

He cried.
He could not climb the stairs
For he had no legs,
No feet,
No hands or arms,
Only the eyes
That could see the top rung
And weep.
Would he be famous
Having reached the top,
If at all,
He did not know
Nor did he care.
Then, by way of...Read More

Swinging between today and tomorrow

desiring to embrace the positive

Brumal mist ...
Crawls o'er the spindrift
White hats and bobbing buoys
Nod to me in affirmation ...

Oh, Calypso ...
So calculable and sure
Stir me as the sand, soft
Gather me to the briny abysm ...

Translation - A piece of land
I crave a piece of land,
Oh! Parasakthi!
I crave a piece of land...

Amidst the piece of land,
build me a palace grand
with sundecks and picturesque pillars;
everything in pristine colors.
And near the well,
the long pinnate leaves 
and the tender coconut dwell.

We use to walk together…in the mountains…by the sea
before the sun would rise each day…my golden retriever…and me

and though we do love a good rhyme…he was named after a bakery.

Inspired by hope, and joy,

Premium Member Hey Mom I Want You
I wanted this mom but she does not want me.
She might change her mind, so I wait.
In limbo.
For her decision.
She is holding all the cards.
She has been wavering for weeks.
I do want her, do not want her.
I sit patiently, unconcerned.

Fleetingly the day begins
Clouds roam in and out

The cardinal pecks away at a piece of seed
Cat watches with avid interest
Life is tenuous

Storm comes up suddenly
Rain pelts us with ice...Read More

You don't choose, choice f's you
Beads of clear liquor trickle

Like fickle tears a lick rids.

A drop slid down amidst

Thick fears.

Choice of liquor? Beer.

Steer inward towards clear

Ambitious

Glee.

Then, when opportunity peers from behind a mouth,

Opportunity flees.

Dripping, rivers of fluid dy-manics steer.

Simply be.

It does not choose the destination...Read More

A Summer Day
First light of the day,
Softness from the garden
Opening the blue window
Smell of pine and flowers;

Noon of a sunny day,
Noises from the beach
Lying on the white chair
Shadow and melodies

Sunset coloring the sea,
Moving boats in the horizon
Songs of flying seagulls
Red sky adding...Read More

Morning Walk
Call for prayer,
Soft light from the mosque
Walking alone in calmness;

Reddish sky from East,
Bird songs from trees
Dawn removing darkness;

Sun rays on the horizon 
Lively children in buses
Good morning brightness.
