stands...for notre dame

stripped bare her spirit
forever stands.
as ashes gather
among the tears.
all the years.
she stands wherever
those who knew
what she meant,
all that she has seen.
she stands in the hearts
of the proud and the bowed.
a brilliant flower
above the crowd.
she stands
as embers dance
her strength unbroken
for us,
she stands.

budding raindrop

slowly the concepts of love
and peace drifted down
perhaps to be heard
or passed around.
words like droplets
as they tumble
those who believe
should shout,
not mumble.

lavender wings like butterfly

lavender wings like butterfly
kissed by loving droplets
falling down from the sky.
softly supported by their
green leafy bed.
dreams of warm sunlight
dance around in their heads.

red salad cacaphony

hues payed their dues
red salad cacaphony
a feast of harmonious.

of moments

of moments,
collections of quiet
and eclat.
brilliant passages.
downcast timber.
words or not
to keep us emotionally

Thursday, April 11, 2019


though change it does in shape and timber
though circumstance and the follies of the universe
change us all,
love remains, true, everlasting,and real.

between the little lights and sounds

between the little lights and sounds
a moment quiet can astound.
in its sheer simplicity.
our earth without

my face it opens to the sun

my face it opens to the sun
as a new day greets
this is the one.
no guarantees another
my face it opens to the sun.

sometimes in life you gotta sit
and ponder all the rest of it.

april tears

april cries not for the days
that passed
april cries as she will not last
may hovers softly
in gentle song.
but sweet may, too
will not last that long..

the face of spring

ah moustachioed whimsical
the face of spring.
so silly and flimsical
as softly she enters
no winter

field of lovely

field of lovely
yellow, greens
white surrounding

through light

through light the dark penetrated
to ingest and push away
all the positivity that she
needed to stay,
in a world where she could not
find  her way.
on heaps of heartless detritus
quietly she stood
her ground,
clinging on
to that which she perceived
as good
this battle raged
as she aged.
she did perhaps the
best that she could
never sure.
always dure.

scouting for food
then relaxing en pointe

mine...i saw it first

at times i do things illegal
waddya want
i am a seagull
most of my food it is
(the den of thieves long ago
i joined)
so drop it stop it
or hold it in your hand
and look away...
food for thought
as i grab it
turn around is
fair play.

if life were measured in increments.
time not yet earned
or perhaps wisely spent.
if life were a scoreboard
a checkerboard
a maze.
who would keep count
of all the ins and outs,
or our plays.
if time were an apple
an orange a peach
would each bite be
or perhaps out of reach.
if life were something
that could be comprehended
would then all
world sadnessses
finally be ended.


I dreamed of a world where kindness, like
Waterfalls caressed and covered
That world In joyous

Little frio too

Little frio
Perhaps in thought 
An image and a moment 
So glad my camera

world poetry day

if the world were as graceful as a swan
as soft as the words unspoken of a gentle touch
if reason had rhyme and beauty poured out
instead of hate
a poetic life
in syncopation
world poetry day
and jubilation.

Garage eaglery

Cars and bars of metal
My amazon
Our habitat that once was..
Not here
And gone

We rise

We rise though entrenched in that
And those.
We rise because we do not suppose
We rise because in good we believe
We rise far above those who 
Wish to deceive

more sprrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrring

Spring the lovely warmth you bring

Beauty proud

Beauty proud,
Mind of her own,
Yet part of the crowd,
Always has something to say
But never too loud.
Stands on the edges,
Not afraid to fall,
She has not very much.
But really has
It all.


Spring she sits 
Outside the gate 
The hints she sends us
cannot wait

away to start
A brand new day

happy pi-des of march

happy pi-des of march.
this is our sweet maxi pi pteribird aka pteri tea rose max.. she left this earthly plane on 7/12/14. our love for her has never wavered. she taught us bird and sent us magic mikey so we could all heal.
thank you precious one for loving us and trying, and staying with us in spite of your dire from day one prognosis.
we honor those we love by loving again, opening our homes and hearts, and healing..

manta vision

i imagine a world for mantas
like i.
a world free from worry
as the days drift by.
clear clean waters
in which we can all
ply our trades
in the daily
marine parade.
our ocean
is not a
garbage can.
are you out there
species man.

time heals but each step is one forward and sometimes one back. as these milestones approach over the years, sweet memories and tenderness will dry your tears

Beauty corner

Beauty in a corner 
Illuminate my life

From his heart once lit by the sun
A school of swarming 

every day is women's day

warrior woman
she lives her life
by her own rules
with an open heart
and zero tolerance
for fools.

The confusion that sits

Where am I
In all of it

Winter floes

Winter floes
The diamond beauty
Cold and bold,
Such is winter’s

Monday, March 4, 2019


heartglows psychedelical
Where light sits,


fluffyduff sits in her tree
she does not ponder why
the cold
she does not dwell on
young or old
her moment is where
she sit or flies.
what she hears or what
catches her eyes

a memory

where i stood so long ago
waiting for the train
seasons many
faces too
part of our lives
what we did
and what
some still

Winter whites

Winter whites 
Greens and burnished
Frozen golds.

Not by cold

Not by cold nor late life
Winter  touched 
your beauty 
Ever lasting,

i have learned to tailor

i have learned to tailor the stitches of failure
to pull together all the pieces
perhaps a garment
this work never ceases
i am learning to tailor
what could have been
but not in the world
that i lived in.


If the world was like these pretty doves,
Even in the coldest cold,
The warmth of love

Namaste lifts

Love and light
Peace-filled days
And blissful

Do you know

do you know my friend the crow
he will tell you where to go.

in case you are wondering about this and that
one thing for sure...
i am a cat.
and as a cat i have some rules
to go against my grain?
i pity the fools.
i have my humans wrapped around
my little paws.
just takes a bonk, a bite or a display
of my claws.
the world my oyster
i am the king of where
i go.
so feel free to say hi
but first let my people
p.s. i live across the hall
from magic mikey da macaw

(we will never meet)
as appetizing and tempting a morsel as i ever saw
only kidding
i think
gotta run
and make my litter box stink


why do you choose to bother me
can't you see i want some

About Me

My photo
i am older than dirt and proud of it!!!! 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.
