dVerse — villanelle — Green Disease

We should control our avarice It matters not if kith nor kin It makes our souls cadaverous Our urge to win is sick, scabrous, Where matricide isn't a sin We can't control our avarice Our Mother's become cancerous We can't tell her bone from her skin It makes our souls cadaverous Our eyes gulp down… Continue reading dVerse — villanelle — Green Disease

Song playlist on Faith

Last week someone featured a song from Eric Clapton's, “Journeyman” album. It had been awhile since listening to it, so I pulled it out this morning while doing the dishes. It's a very enjoyable easy listening album. When I got to the song, “Running on Faith,” it gave me an idea to do a playlist… Continue reading Song playlist on Faith

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

Coloring Club Plus — 12/8/19

This is not a straightforward holiday song, but it does contain a Christmas tree and a wish list. Reading about the album I was surprised to see it outsold No Code, as I've about worn No Code out but have seldom listened to Yield. Maybe I need to give it more time. Also, about the… Continue reading Coloring Club Plus — 12/8/19

dVerse — The Question as Poetry — Where can a blind man live who is pursued by bees?

    Sprung squalling from red gore Starved of mother's milk Tilted with shadow Clawing for life Unaccompanied * No echoes nor music Sliced by briars Tattered trek Storm-colored glasses Lightning blasted * Tap-tap-tap Fertility flailed Sterility prevailed Eden plowed Soft white hands * Wilderness of bees Callous calculations Stumbled careless Lulling hum – imprinted… Continue reading dVerse — The Question as Poetry — Where can a blind man live who is pursued by bees?

Today's Celtic letter, “E” is dedicated to Eddie Vedder, who is at the top of my music pyramid. Today's song is one of my favorite Pearl Jam tunes of all times and that's saying a lot. Riot Act is the seventh studio album by American rock band Pearl Jam, released on November 12, 2002 through… Continue reading Coloring Club Plus — 10/18/19
