#NaPoWriMo Day 21 ~Time Travel

#NaPoWriMo Day 21 ~Time Travel


If I Could Time Travel
I’d go back just once
before life shifted beneath
my feet. Where we sat
watching the rain pour
down, final curtain falling
across the lake. And
stay forever in your arms.

#NaPoWriMo Ketch-up Day 16-20

#NaPoWriMo Ketch-up Day 16-20

Telling The Truth
The moment you lit.
My tongue was rapt with freedom.
I felt emboldened
The Coffeehouse chat
Lifeline cast
I held my coffee mug tight
your gaze held mine
truth delivered black
always love and light
the devil in the corner
you remain blinded
Marketing, the new religion
You will not shush me.
Capacious spirit roaming,
mold broken, I’m freed.
Funambulist’s Pergatory

I know! I do. You don’t need to remind me. I owe you three poems. They are coming forthwith.

Somewhere in the last week I lost a day. No doubt due to this being Good Friday, a day off work for me, and the beginning of a long weekend. This explains why I thought it was Friday all day yesterday.

But worse than the lost day, I lost a week. Now I would brush this off has having no significance, or…

What Helena Hann-Basquait Feels like….

What Helena Hann-Basquait Feels like….

I want to send you all the Pinterest Board Lizzi and I created for Helena Hann Basquiat’s Memoirs of a Dilettante. I received my book and post cards in the mail for from Helena and tore into the box like a kiddo on Christmas morning. On actual Christmas, not the week before when you find the present stash and unwrap and rewrap them in the closet. No, when you actually tear down the stairs and…

Creative Crush ~ Lee Price

Creative Crush ~ Lee Price


I came across Lee’s work while reading this poem. Now, I am a HUGE fan of realistic paintings. And when I first saw the first image below I thought it was a photograph. When I found out it wasn’t, I was blown away. I immediately scrambled over myself to find out what other glorious works awaited. Hence my current creative crush- Lee Price.

It’s my favorite day of the week. Friday Fictioneers has become my hump day remedy. In case you’re new to the game. Every Wednesday our illustrious host Rochelle Wisoff-Fields posts a photo prompt. Our challenge is to write a 100  word story, poem, whatever we like inspired by the the prompt. Give it a shot. I promise you’ll like it.

#NaPoWriMo Day 15- Tax Day

Tax Day

My Beloved Husband said
“I want a new life”
Leaving seed planted in my womb.

“I don’t want any kids” he declared.
Or so it seemed this marriage either.

The choice you left mine.
But there was no choice really,
Only Goodbye.

Now, our karmic debt’s paid
my pound of flesh sacrificed.
