No Longer




I have changed my avatar for you

For I am emptied

For I am the exoskeleton

Of a dead japanese beetle

A few months ago, a young dog “followed” my son home.  She was rambunctious and chewed stuff, but she was sweet and soon won our hearts.  Nevertheless, I did the right thing and put a sign up on the bulletin board at the local mercantile statiRead full post »




Bloodied and alone   

Reading your words, yet again

They are not helping

and lavender lace

One Wonders



As a wisp of smoke on an autumn breeze

As a snow goose call from above slate gray clouds

As a shadowy wraith one catches in the corner of an eye

As a summer rain shower passing quickly by; 

She was here for a while, wasn’t she?

In her  post today, Hells Bells dared us to write a Sestina.  I can't resist a dare (so damned competitive)

Friends In Low Places

It doesn't really matter how I came to be associated with these people.  Suffice it to say that some of them are my friends.   Anyway, I was invited by them to a South East Texas tradition; the crawfish boil.

If you are unfamiliar with crawfish they are also call crawdaddy's, cray… Read full post »

HELP!! I Need Some Sage Advice



My oldest son is a big, strapping, handsome, blondeheaded, brilliant, kind, soft hearted, high-school senior.  He is moving off into the world as in a little less than a month he'll be graduating high school.

Is there one more path to travel?

One road yet to take?

Do I risk the pain again to gain

What? One more chance at hope? 


Do I risk one more betrayal?

Every time... every time... every time

It never fails

With soul of velvet down

Hath cast a spell though not to dread
