New Dogs

Tired Dogs

New dogs tire out old Pups

or is it the other way around?

Waiting Games

Waiting Games

Solitaire salute to the single mom

her patience reigns supreme

suffering dances with doll in hand

blind to this stich and stuffing.

The wait knows not that time can fly

as wither does flesh from inside

each moment played upon tableau

building fondations

Into the darkness

with belief

all  Islands  shall be saved

Not without grief

but with God's bountiful blessings

We must teach trust

and guide all souls

into the light

of enrichment

for which they were ment to serve

Her Name Was Rose

Her Name was Rose

An old friend she

And even though old man winter shunneth 

She has yet to grace us with her sweet arrival

I shall never forget her scent in the warm spring air

Nor the care free wave of her delicate greeting

Very soon Miss Rugosa will appear from… Read full post »

We are bent and whisper

wind bites at my fingers

This movie speaks clearly to the injustices of mankind and the meaning of love.

Real honest love. Any Day Now. Find it on Netflix.

It is a must see. Then tell me Why .

 And How do we move forward and not backwards as this nation seem to traveling.

Anther Anther to microsporangia

Pollen laden reply

"Don't sugar coat it kid"

She said from tip to thigh

Petal Tip "Come over here"

Her lip smiled large

from slender light green stalk she rose

And in that pose she bloomed 

Stalk Even…

While Walking On Snow


night snow 1

The moon last night

All round and a glow

Made each foot step sparkle

On our walk in the snow


You spoke and each word

Hung frost in the air

Behind Angel Sleeves

This Winter's Tale is long and cold

And traps us with her grip

Angel sleeve of the season

We hide behind her cold sharp sleeve

And fear her health is strong

Slowly does she let us freeze

Frosted with sprinkles 

And so we dodge and duck… Read full post »

No Des La Finca

 The sun now tilted towards la tarde, and the rooftop buzzed around them as the bees returned home.

Janelle glared at the Old Mujer, her hazel eyes gleaming like wet stones from a troubled sea. Her tears sank silently away. She needed this now, more than ever, it… Read full post »

The Big Dig Out

Big Dig Out The big dig out 

isn't chilly or frozen through

fresh layers hide their way home

   in the stillness  foot steps are lost

yet they persist   daydreamers once

    never finished

until the way is uncovered

   for those

who've come undone

Meniscus Moon

Meniscus Moon

To Kneel they say

is often overlooked

and bent that way

his persuasion

an alter can't sway


For prayer the answer

in diversion until

the ice no longer

numbs the thrill


And thoughts of regions

beyond one's reach

become the secrets of

surgeons speech
