He steams her edges

and, like stamps

on a postcard

.

she curls in the heat

falling free from the corner

of mythology

.

to be saved

by the fire

in his hands.

Skipping Stones cover

.

I’m very excited to announce that my poetry book, “Skipping Stones”, will be available on Amazon later this month!  It’s being published by “Four Windows Press”.

“Skipping Stones” has four sections, and it includes the Maeberrie fantasy, which some of you are familiar with. (My two characters now have names!)

The photo for the cover was taken by my son, Jason.

I’ll keep you posted when the book is released.

Thank you very much to my readers, and to Four Windows Press, for your support through the years. ❤

I’d fly on white wings,

one of joy

one of sorrow

balanced

on crosswinds

above

and below

to mate

in mid-flight

with a prayer.

My thoughts and condolences are with Santa Fe, Texas today, and with all those affected by this most recent school shooting. When will it stop?

Hades evicts

the broken-winged crow

yet there is no heaven

for one who can’t fly,

thus grounded he guides

the quest of the seeker

bidding us follow

his skittering hop

on a path with no sides

through the wild release

in the breach

between shadow

and light.

He shells

those cornered dreams

that rub us raw

secreting love

around torn edges

polishing

with his own tears

pearls of poetry.

I would be the tide

that moves your sea

as waves of you

go breaking through my soul,

.

and you – the gust of wind

that plays my flute

would hear my drumming

in the ocean’s roll.
