the hurt gathers

the hurt gathers.
it sits in corners.
waits in stairwells.
poised to strike
the already stricken,
with vulnerabilities
far and deeply hidden.
so gather the leaves
fallen and sere
who they were
but not who they are


in their delicate gentillesse
a power that few
will ever possess.

garage eagle mountain

are we as one
a collection of "I's"
on this aerie together.


it is said one should never
look down from on high
but at times we do
if we want to fly.

walking dovestrut

when i have some place to be
some place to go
or someones needing me
i take a strut
lift up a my feet just so
my dreams will take me
(i sure hope so)

oh cry the night

oh cry the night
the gentle glow
soft scent of
cry the night
the light of day
too harsh to shoulder.
cry the arms of comfort
from wherever they fall.
they are the healing

open arms
of day.

pretty summer puffball

pretty summer puffball
does not pretend
nor does she worry
about when her summer
she exist as she
whatever shall be.

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.
