dVerse — Shhhh! — Seven Secrets

Seven Secrets Delicious assignations, tantalizing tawdriness Betrayal, concealment, smoldering silence Midnight raids, candy corn amongst socks Headlights off, on to 7-11; gobbling, puking Under the table trading, permits to polluters Cayman billions, rotting soldiers in trenches Fat feet propped on desks, unoiled machines Undotted “I”s, forgotten “T”s Unseen bruises, battered worth, stalking Passive-aggressive pot shots,… Continue reading dVerse — Shhhh! — Seven Secrets

dVerse — prosery — The Rock cries out…

The Rock, a.k.a. Dwayne Johnson was there when professional wrestling went from two chubby, hairy guys wearing unitards to tanned muscular bodies wearing glittery spandex. From 1996-2004, Dwayne glammed and glitzed the crowds with his magnificent form, his skilled moves, and his charisma -- before leaving for Hollywood. WWE languished without its star and Johnson… Continue reading dVerse — prosery — The Rock cries out…

dVerse — soliloquy — view from the trail

Situation: In a small group discussion last night, we compared Judas to The Prodigal Son as far as regret, attitude, behavior, motivation; during the discussion a disagreement arose.

dVerse — quadrille #94 — Mercy

Mercy I see her. If hawks could roar, her voice would echo off the silent trees. Instead redtail's plaintive cries enter my ears without fanfare Even cardinals and doves congregated at the feeder Pay no mind to her whine. Dove's demise comes mid contented coo. WhimsyGizmo (aka De Jackson) is today's host of dVerse.  De… Continue reading dVerse — quadrille #94 — Mercy

#MM — Saturday Mix – Rhyme Time — The queen of neither here nor there

"The angel of the birds" by Franz Dvorak (1862-1927) It happened once I don't know where Perhaps a dream I know 'twas fair About an heir who played in air Around her flew two doves, a pair At night they slept in a tree, a pear With moonlight blankets of silver flair Morning flood sunlight… Continue reading #MM — Saturday Mix – Rhyme Time — The queen of neither here nor there

Fifty years later, they're at stage one of understanding the why or why not of my managing… Continue reading dVerse — elemental — (Li) Lithium

Older son put a total of one item on his list, which solidified the beginning of the new way. The gifts I bought them… Continue reading dVerse — haibun — Polar beginning
