under the storm

under the storm above
i hold my ground
among the perilous
and querulous
the misanthropes
and misinformed
as in swarms
they tend

where can we find

where can we find a little love
not in a book
a lonely nook
heartbeats that
are never heard
love spoken softly
with out

year of

tomorrow starts the year of the rat
sayeth we rodents
not dogs and not cats
no birds not fish
oh how you all wish
but that is that
this year honors
we rats🐀

ever if

ever if ever
the gentleness
inside our hearts
could fix
if kindness could
like a stream
alas it is always
good to dream.

goggles in his corner
on a cold winter day
as he observes
whatever passes
his way.

there are no

there are no breadcrumbs
where fall the tears
no path to follow.
no steps aside.

i write

i write for us these sweet refrains
in this world,
of so much pain.
i search for pillows
where our heads can dream
of a world,
not this.
not as
it seems.
perhaps the awakening truly
when we hear our own
allow the warmth with
which we were born
not to
be wounded or
walked upon.
and doing such
in a gentle way
that cannot be denied
nor can it

About Me

My photo
greetings! i have managed to incorporate my eternal woodstock nation spirit with the high tech 21st century world. i am an artist/writer, who dabbles in rhyme, and, sometimes, reason. my passions are my husband, who is truly the wind that ruffles my sails, animals rights, yoga...waking up in the morning. i find inspiration in too many things to list, and far too many more to remember. sketching, watercolor painting,poetry and photography are my ways of expressing joy and gratitude. from living with a chronic illness, i have learned the beauty of each day, and treat each as another sun salutation, and another chance.
