Familiar voices lilt in the background weaving through the gentle picking of sweet guitar
the harmonies simple,
the message tender
I don’t need to hear the words to get the message
we are all in this […]
Takes me to all the family gatherings I go to, even though we have no guitar music. “Love now Live on” so real.
Loved the easy listening xoxo
I have played guitar since I was 8 years old and my Uncle Danny did too – guitars at family functions was a normal occurrence. This is such a happy thought for me thank you for this. Beautifully written!
the first three lines set such a wonderful tone and present an instant picture of the story you are telling. beautiful.
been to this juncture three times before.
Never with the boost of so many prompts
my friends think I’m crazy but I love to write
poetry is never as good as when completely spontaneous.
But I love t […]
It wasn’t easy but we made it through together
food was scarce
new clothes a luxury
held by the arms of many mothers we knew love
and they knew all of our bedtimes
nature here is nothing like the mountains fresh with dew in the morning
air conditioners drop fluid in strange places
bags of garbage rustle with the contents of rodentia feasts
And the jungle of concrete […]
she was tiny when she came to Live with us
perfectly dressed in her little black coat
she never really acted her age
instead of playing and frolicking as one did then
she mostly kept to herself but for […]
In the wee hours of the night the standstill can be deafening
The others on the way have the same
work to keep up with
knowing they are there, makes the final hour worth heading toward.
Lonely in the […]
She opened the letter wondering the occasion.
Her dear friend never wrote, much less made it to post—must be some occasion.
Before reading any words, the picture fell from the envelope. The Grand Canyon, Cy […]
dear she who is about to complete the Poetry Marathon,
Let your nimble fingers dance upon the keys, there are only a few more hours before the sun hits the horizon and nine am comes.
You’ve been through s […]
It’s a Brave new world
with the guts to navigate it
We set out to cross the country in three days.
Three of us and
a new boyfriend in his car
a sack full of cassettes
And barely enough prerolled joints to make it all bearable
We made it all the way […]
We all breathe it together at the dawn of time and space
there’s only one answer and t is yes
“The land knows you, even when you are lost“
And the water knows too
Find yourself in the flow
Tresses on the floor reveal what once defined her beauty
alone in the chair
none of that matters now
the pixie staring back at her wasn’t smiling and the mirror wasn’t lying
She’d tip him anyway
when the rain came the girl in the musical question would be mystically tinged
personal wealth is currently humming along.
Dear baby Rach,
It really was OK for you to come when you did be who you were to get to who you are. Which is me now. It doesn’t really matter if it was a shock when you arrived. And you didn’t mean to ste […]
The sparkle of the moonbeams danced in the reflection of this morning’s coffee
The hush of the owls palpable in the air hanging like fog on the misty lake
One more sip of fresh water left in the ca […]
your average american child has no idea about death and sex is taboo
but violence and rape define the culture
add celebrity and you’ve got quite the American dream
Spot’s sex is violent and Jane is add […]
I had plenty of time but he asked for too much of what I had
money pomp and circumstance
Seemed to be what mattered to him
For me it was the chance to move energy
and see what happened when we […]
its warm in here and so coming out doesn’t seem right
questions arise as to whether I should go
I can’t anyway, it’s not time yet
I suppose she decides when I can come out or maybe it’s me who gets to […]
To be awake is knowing this isn’t real in the flash of the landing
Fom there to here is a long way
Let the mattress catch me if I fall
