dVerse — Poetics — imprint

  Pulled up to the empty parking lot of the restaurant. Amend that, empty except for one giant Yamaha crotch rocket and a man, standing off to the side, looking at the back patio. His back turned so I could get a long look at his long frame in his tan dress pants and matching… Continue reading dVerse — Poetics — imprint

Dragon's Crest stood for millennia at the edge of the Great Sea. Untold numbers had lived, died and loved there. Dragons called it home first after they came from a distant planet.

dVerse — quadrille — Blue and Clouds

  Blue seems so far away, yet here I stand, immersed. Seen from a distance; clear, yet felt so murkily within. Clouds, wing-fluffed mystical messengers; cushioned protectors from punishing glare. Blue-clotted canvas smoothed under moving yet constant angel brushes -- watery dilutors of woe.   Kim from Writing in North Norfolk is today's host of… Continue reading dVerse — quadrille — Blue and Clouds

Doodads (not photos of the garden)

Just a few things that don't fit neatly into other posts. Oat Milk It's official.  I'm now using oat milk in my coffee instead of unsweetened almond milk.  I decided to give oat milk a try after reading an article about the harmful effect on the environment almond milk has, especially on bees that are… Continue reading Doodads (not photos of the garden)
