To be consumed
is not a love
to be earned

For Emily

You are selflessly strong sweet girl

Sometimes we find rocks

Crack em open

Pretend they’re pretty

Find beauty in the shatters

Put them out for everyone to see

Trust those cracks

Even though those rocks are ugly.

And guilty of being inanimate and…

- not an ounce of make-up on
just twirling a few strands of hair
eating an apple outside the ice cream shop
no phone
no purse
no attachments
munch-crunching on that apple
just twirling a few strands
of honey-brown hair…

I can taste her from here
even thirteen years later
her memory,
still the flavor of
summertime cider

blue velvet
nights
swathe me
in deep softness
comfort me
with your midnight
down, wrap
around the starless
solitude that touches
this chilled soul
with velvety warmth
needed so much.

SPECIAL

Stone gateway.
Today frame to light effects.
Brightness, contrast, textures.
Rich combinations.
Highlighted by strong light.
Become important.
Imposing.
Admirable details.
Awaken the look.
Stimulate observation.
A good appreciator.
Meet individual sensitiveness.
By the beauty and charm.
Simple stone.
Rich light effects.
Common becomes special.

pearl.

pensivepen:

I have a shell
unlike the tortoise
or the tiny, hidden snail
but like the mussel
sight unseen, who
lets the current take him
I do not wish to be seen
I prefer to make my beauty in private
while I hide beneath the water
buried in the silt and sand.
Then when I’ve died
you can open me up
and ponder the pearl
that I leave.

submerge

fresh from the fire,
let me run your bath
and feel the darkness
leave your lungs
as you breathe with me
in the lavender room
with vanilla steam
and sweet strains
of sonorous reverie

beneath the water fall  
i murmur poetry  
against you ear
softly enough
so you can imagine
anything you want to hear…

Let me just say I didn’t
it was the absent temperatures like
falling columns of animals
in combat for the one tree,

or change in the tree, or 

how I walk the length of

trees to avoid trees changing

into better trees,  one tree

falling into a tree, and darker

a tree without reason

I zip my jacket slower than
I meant

"What do you mean you want to move?" asked Jason. "Move where? We were looking at houses only a few weeks ago and now you want to move? Do you even know how expensive it is to move? Hell, I just landed that promotion. What about the wedding? Are we going to move and then have to fly back here for…

mommy that man is talking to himself

cherokeeghostwriter:


I am whispering under my breath,to no one in particular.
the few who notice, quickly turn away.
an uncomfortable moment with worries of mental illness,
and a large mumbling man, oblivious to the world around him.

How fun it would be i suddenly think, to follow them for a while,
reciting the poem that caused this uneasy stir.
stalking their every step with my unfinished verse.

For every person
who has thought:
“is it me?”

It is you.
But it really just is me.

So many words for
such easy a confession,
but no, really, it is
just me.
Repeated over and over
like a small wrecking ball
colliding soft but persistent
with that rock formation —
“It must be me, it must;
surely I’ve done something wrong,
I’ve been too this and I’ve been too that.”

Nope.
Well, maybe
just a wee bit
of you needing
to stop thinking like
that.
But more so
really just that
It’s me and I need space
to get my collective shit
together.

Oh, bother!
It’s not you;
It’s me.

Banging this head
against that wall
unable to communicate
beyond the scope
of little words.
Time has tucked
the big emotions,
the bigger presence
of mind and such
into boxes in the corner —
<—- over there; over here ——>
Just…

It’s me.
I’ve told you.
Please listen.
And if you can’t,
Please leave;
I haven’t the energy
to keep this up
much longer now.

A dinosaur on an airplane
A well-dressed, middle-aged businessman is seated in 1A.
Over the years, he has acquired a taste for first-class business travel.
Halfway into his flight, he steps into the airplane restroom feeling like a billion dollars and steps out a shattered man.
The naked truth is written on the inside of the first-class restroom door —"It’s the year 1804. The world population is 1 billion. Fast forward 123 years to the year 1927. The world population is 2 billion.  Fast forward 33 years to the year 1960. The world population is 3 billion.  Fast forward 14 years to the year 1974. The world population is 4 billion.  Fast forward 13 years to the year 1987. The world population is 5 billion.  Fast forward 12 years to the year 1999. The world population is 6 billion.  Right now the world population is 7.2 billion.  The world population is projected to reach 8.7 billion in 2035.
You won’t make it to 2035.
None of us will.  You’re a dinosaur on an airplane.”
