Spooks and ghouls abound,
Mister Spock with Cat Woman.
Happy Halloween!

Things are better now
Than they ever were before.
Each day here is good.

I like the wind chimes
Hanging outside my window.
They let the breeze sing.

Fairy godmothers
May arrive in green Saturns
But can still change you.

Wearing the Red Dress
Made me feel like a princess.
I AM beautiful!

When you chase something
You might not catch it until
You let it happen.

Those two are my world.
While I could not start their lives,
I gave them a life.

Creative Writing Challenge #15-"When was little, I thought thunder and lightning were..."

When I was little, I thought thunder and lightening were God's punishment for telling lies. Growing up has only served to reinforce this notion.

Rose and Blackbird



Blackbird.jpg Blackbird image by impotentspider




















When winter laughs at her icy secrets,

and blows her ragged skirt,

Rose, once adorned in red velvet,

whispers, “I was a queen.”



Winter howls and her branches droop.

But blackbird arrives, festive as… Continue

I want to be done.
I want it to be over.
I'm tired of waiting.

You speak to my heart
Without uttering a word.
Soul to soul we share.

Creative Writing Challenge #13-"over the river and through the wood was nothing like what i expected..."

I had one of those amazingly simple childhoods that, at the time seemed somewhat bleak, but in hindsight was wonderful and magical and what I wish my own kids had experienced. Mother and Daddy married in 1945 after he'd been wounded in the war and sent home. They started a dairy farm in southwestern Arkansas and things went pretty well for quite a while. But by the time I came along (number four in the five-member sibling group) they'd lost the farm to drought and had moved back to North Texas… Continue

Exponents in Space

The little numbers on the line,
Behave so well for me.
As they grow bigger they travel left,
and smaller-right you see.
But if you want to know the scale,
make all the powers equal.
Then when they are drawn out on a line,
their distance will be sensible.

Ribbons in a box
With a dusty tiny dress
Are all that are left.

Lone Ranger Hat

This started to be about what it might feel like to be the last flock of chickens, the last outhouse, the last milk man - in town. Thinking of the time when the milk man would walk right into the house in the

morning and re-stock the refrigerator for us. His name was Danny

Pinson.

And the last outhouse in town was on ninth street down by Cleveland street. The last guy to raise chickens in the city limits was Richard Mathes and that wasn't too long ago. A couple of locals fit…

For the Love of the Land

My ears begin to pop as the pressure changed during our descent into the atmosphere directly over the green mountains. Having grown up in areas predominantly near a city I was overwhelmed with the amount of green

that I saw beneath me. I can recall turning to my new wife and saying, where

are we going to land, there's nothing but trees down there? We'd made a slight

left banking out over Lake Champlain and began our downwind run into…

Therapists and friends -
Good ones will keep your secrets,
But friends are cheaper.

Normalcy.....





What is it? I've been back from vacation six weeks, and I can't get back to ANY groove that feels "right". The problem is likely, I'm still about 3,000 miles away in my home town of North Pole/Fairbanks, Alaska.



We bought our tickets at the end of January 2010 to go home. Our second trip in six years, my husbands second trip ever. We were flying home August 19 and returning to Hot-Texas on September 5. Somewhere around February, my… Continue
