The Moment

outside in the sun she leans. pear in hand the juices run rampant. tilted just far enough forwards that the sheer succulence hits the rocky ground rather than her purple pencil skirt. pleasure in every angle of her body she succumbs to the moment.


The new year slips out of the old wearing a cloak of darkness thick enough to fool us into believing that there are no new beginnings. Our souls turn inward finding (by surprise; by intention; by cyclical forces greater than our consciousness) ourselves. In awe we examine our desires and discover them to be both…


she speaks whisper words in a roaring world all the while wondering why it is she never feels heard

we wake –

the heart thoughts that I have yet to find the words for finally captured by leaves turning from alive to brilliant.

Letting Go.

Every time I run down a hill, I think of my high school cross country coach. The rocky path at Beaver Lake comes into my mind, and I can hear him talking. “Relax on the downhills. Let your stride lengthen. It’s here that you can make up ground. Most people you are running against are…

she taught me to shift

in the early years of our love affair when I used to roll my eyes & sigh every time she changed that to this or moved there to here. I, stir crazy with desire for the way it was going to be to arrive already ran my eyes over the magic of transformation with disdain….
