Gems on black velvet,
Pairs of brightness all in rows.
Oncoming headlights.

Tears pulled from my eyes
By gravity of living
Life in minor keys.

Magnolias rattle,
Oaks shush and bare pecans moan.
Live wind instruments.

Drooping and faded,
The lights and sparkle are gone -
Our dead Christmas tree.

Beneath winter night
Spring smiles in her sleep, dreaming
Of summer and sun.

Sky sits on wavetops.
Surf swishes across lands end.
Wind sifts out fine sand.

Frozen sky above
Stiff brown grass rooted in mud.
Green surprises me.

Sweetie Pie Baking Company

Cinnamon Rolls Pictures, Images and Photos



When I’m older, I might open a bakery. But for now cooking is just another one of those passions of mine. For all I know, it may be the only reason I have friends. I give them stuff, see. They want my lemon custard pies and raisin cookies and cinnamon rolls. I have a particular friend I call, Chick-a-pee, who is quite enamored with my skills. We don’t exchange birthday presents per se, but every year for her celebration, I make and… Continue

Flashes of visions.
Possible realities.
Imagination.

Abandoning the
pressures of intelligence.
Inebriation.

We have never met.
I have not yet touched her face.
She has touched my heart.

Giant stone rivers
Carrying currents of steel
Smother the landscape.

Why we celebrate
Birthdays for loves who have died:
Memories live on.

Speeding through darkness
A small bubble of brightness
Driving to get home

A year

I'm starting a project today. For the next year, I'm going to post one haiku for every day here on this blog. I will do my best to post it on the actual day, but there are times when I'm in places and/or situations where I have no internet access. When that happens, I will still write the haiku but it won't get posted until I can get back here. So, a year from now there will be 365 haiku here. The object of this project is to try and encapsulate the year like haiku condenses and encapsulates a… Continue

working on a song....

someone got a second verse idea?....


down this old road
I like to walk
along the tracks
to the waiting station
I step inside
go for a ride
down this old road
I like to walk.

Shoe Stories

red heels and rose petals Pictures, Images and Photos

I am in love. With shoes. My closet is chock full of pumps, boots, and shiny flats. Every time I see a shoe store I get the urge to yank my car over and partake in the rapture of finding that new pair. Maybe I need a twelve STEP program. It’s about the only materialistic thing I have a problem with and I rationalize this because, by gosh, these shoes DO take me places.



Obviously I’m not alone with this addiction. Go to any shoe…

Spring

'It's Above Freezing Can Spring Be Far Behind?'



Okay ladies and gentlemen the sun is up , the pipes have thawed, I'm in a better mood and Spring is just up ahead. Things are on the upswing. I'm lucky I had no burst pipes. And I'm also lucky to have had plenty of clothes to keep me warm. Some folks laugh because I dress in many, many layers this time of year. I figure if it gives them entertainment, let them laugh. I have yet to suffer much from cold weather even when I'm in it. I… Continue

Airline Unescurity

'My New Year Airline Security Plan'



Okay so we end the new year with some guy lighting his underwear om fire on an airliner. Sure it could have been a catastrophe. But it wasn't, thanks to some alert passengers. The government had been warned about this man but no one thought enough about it to put this guy on the 'no fly' list. Thanks to alert passengers neither they nor the airliner were grievously injured.



I think the safeguards put into place at airports around the… Continue

The Unsinkable Molly Brown's

M Pictures, Images and Photos

Gutsy and kind-the world would have us believe this is a rare combination, that these people aren’t completely trustworthy. I ask you, who is? Show me a perfect person and I’ll kiss a gecko! I don’t expect I’ll ever have to do this. I’m terrified of them. And I’ve yet to see perfection, not in life, people or love. But despite this, we can accomplish more than we realize.



Case in point: Molly Brown. Born Margaret Tobin in Hannibal…
