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

Thursday Inspiration 57 — rise to color

From watery shadow's limbo Burning embered love does rise To glow on spirit's tippy toes Monochromatic suffocation Flooded with oxygenated hues Then sighing, recede, and rest.   Paula Light is the host of Thursday Inspiration.  Paula says: This week’s theme is sunset and the picture is below. Here is the song snippet from “Sunrise Sunset,” a… Continue reading Thursday Inspiration 57 — rise to color

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #134 — Happy Home

A happy home A fuzzy nest A comfy place Where one can rest It makes me smile To know we're there As love has perched Eternal fair Delicate yet Tough are the blooms Whose fragrance touch Each of the rooms We have no fear As when we said Forevermore Our love we pledged. Our bond… Continue reading Reena’s Exploration Challenge #134 — Happy Home

What do you see # 28 — With you every day

An innocent victim of a drive-by shooting, he'd been in a coma for six months. Attached to intravenous drips, a ventilator, a catheter, with various electrodes attached to monitor his life functions, the twenty-year-old Rafael, to all eyes, professional and personal, looked like inert material that needed to be cared for in the coma unit… Continue reading What do you see # 28 — With you every day

dVerse — quadrille 100 — Talisman

Conjuring refrained wah-wahs Apple scruffs bridge two worlds Sad gnome sheds his beard A clean-slated tap-dancer Twirls through Friar Park Magic mantra circuits of Kaleidoscopic waves Neutralize shadows even In darkness. No matter how Your head is turned, The love light will shine in. I wrote my quadrille on George Harrison and, “All Things Must… Continue reading dVerse — quadrille 100 — Talisman

#MM — Saturday Mix — Love’s Return

  Love's Return Birds drift warm breezes, Calls echoing to each other, Then land on same branch. I listen for bells on sails Tinkling we'll be kissing soon. Clear skies, winds westward. My schooner flies towards harbor; Birds drift overhead. Bells tinkle like your laughter; Warm breezes touch like your sighs.   Sarah Weejars is… Continue reading #MM — Saturday Mix — Love’s Return

It had been six months on the respirator, with tube feedings, and no indicators of improvement. Doctors… Continue reading #FF — Plugged in

Valentines Day Feature — Three Roses

Happy Valentine's Day All I've been trying to decide what angle to approach Valentines Day in my writing today. Valentines Day is a iconic celebration of love between two people. Not everyone has the blessings of being in reciprocal love with another person. It's difficult not to feel like you're missing out on this day… Continue reading Valentines Day Feature — Three Roses
