Anther Author

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

Rise up


Robin Hood believed 

Justice shall rise up

Like this ancient Bogenvia 

Creeping slowly first...

Until finally the wall is over taken.

The vine chooses...

Sharing the sunlight

It glorifies the wall.

No man is greater than another

No man

Greater than nature.

Harmony and balan… Read full post »

My Boehner Aches


My Boehner aches for your warm mouth

the Speeker's nose doth run

his words are flat and from the South

that fail to make us cum


Twenty four billon more

spent on a needless party

fat hor d'ourves that pound the curves

those white men sure eat hearty
