Clue

    The mysteries and, of course, the murder are all revealed in a parchment envelope marked ‘Confidential’ and placed beside Mr. Boddy along with his deceased wealth of knowledge in the cellar.   Professor Plum, noted metaphysician, sipping sherry in the conservatory points out that we see only the tip of the iceberg and […]

Summerings

  Summer me with summerings, leisure mornings, evenings, care-nots if the phone shall sing, to-do lists with not one thing, schedules not for when nor where, no worries of have to be there, no plans for do that like this, only hours of dreamer’s bliss. Summer, catch my hug, my kiss. I’m queen with all […]

20 Years?

*Usually on my Daddy’s Memory Day, I arrange words in descriptive doses. Not today. Not on this Memory Day. I’m quiet & observant. However, here are a few notes from my heart.* Daddy, do you know my attempts? I’ve started multiple poems today as my inspiration barely speaks and claims shyness and timidity on your 20th Memory Day.  […]

Breath-taken, By The Unusual

    The dogwood blossoms are late this year. A cold month sulking in rain;   but those on the Joshua trees ornament the field with white finials. Art emphasizing an odd but ancient species — whose leaves were once sacrificed for rope and baskets. Who now become humbly beautiful as they hoist their limbs […]

Johann

    Mid-October,  1992 Past sunrise, the air turns sharp as he heads outside inhaling sparks of wind and thick evergreen. Briskly, he walks toward the barn shifting his weight of eighty-one years to a cane. Windows catch the morning slant of a man thinking — his slight figure creased in a dream started years before […]

White Holding Sands

There’s pebbling in on a rocky wave, a falling forth, a rushing toward a holding shore. There’s wonder, wondrous wonder, in the tumbling, in a steady rush of a wild-watery spin. Grand deliveries deposit the delightful on white holding sands. White holding sands hold fast the treasures, a keeper’s embrace. Treasures gleam and glisten in […]

  Hobo Art

 I will live in a tent on the lawn of someone rich who doesn’t care I’m there. No one will be the wiser, no address, cell phone, Email or high tea. I will prune azaleas and paint watercolor words of children as leave-behind. No one will be around to tell me this is something I […]

Lexiconing Hope

    The recluse in her rare way said it was “the thing with feathers” and specified a small bird that sang in the gale.   I never found it winged as bird or angel but something else that arrived in my sleep.   A maiden draped in long folds of linen, holding a plant […]

A Note From a Dragonfly

Dear Humans, You see it’s like this; it’s quite simple really. You get allowed time just as we, sky dancers, do. Blessed we all are to live a life. Then suddenly an abrupt season drifts in finalizing it all, every bit. Oh, dear humans, live. Love. Laugh. Forgive. A life is so fragile— too special […]
