Beads and how the world turns

Masters of all

image link Fandango's FOWC today is property.  I asked myself when in history did property become owned and how did it come about.  Even today, many cultures do not believe in property ownership.  Today's offering is a cinquain form. Gaia Man's property? From revered to enslaved Her giving spirit is distressed Chattel FOWC -- property

The Dead Can’t Talk. It’s Time To Listen To Survivors. — Drifting Through

Gretchen Kelly speaks powerfully about the survivors of sexual abuse and gives heads-up to abusers and anyone who explicitly or complicitly supports abusers.  THANK YOU Gretchen.   Sexual assault is like a death.

Don’t Talk to Strangers

image link Today, I took a 2-hour bike ride. I passed several people along the way. Most were also on their bikes; some were in their yards.

The Daily Prompt — Dancing

image link   Her head held high Her arms braiding, then “essing”, As her lithe trunk sways, to and fro To the hypnotic notes of the clarinet. Practiced she is, in the arts of dancing, Holding every eye, except her own, fixed and rapt, With her plush, yet muscled undulations. Her eyes were just as… Continue reading The Daily Prompt — Dancing

Day 10 — OctWriPoMo — Blue Eyes*

image link This poem needs an introduction. First, this is *not* an autobiographical piece.  It *is*, however, a composite of some of the stories I've heard from the victims of sex trafficking.  It's *not* for the weak-hearted.  It *is* a story that needs to be told. Secondly, the way it is put together is experimental… Continue reading Day 10 — OctWriPoMo — Blue Eyes*
