Of love and lemonade and glass jars and not rolling down spirals

I have been neglecting my blog... I guess this isn't a completely terrible thing as it is still the holiday season and we are all still trying to get back into the swing of normal life. I'm swinging nowhere currently... it is 8.30am and I am writing this from my bed. A year ago when… Continue reading Of love and lemonade and glass jars and not rolling down spirals

one day soon

making it through this year With only a few scraped knees and just a little bruised skin but mostly with happiness honeyed and fluffy cloud thick joy like cotton candy and mixed dialects and love found and deliciously terrible sin With bated breath we've waited patient like poetry beats, wing beats Like insects, like mantis… Continue reading one day soon

winter high seas

Timber creaks under our toes this lady moans underneath us protesting the storm when the swell rises and breaks salty brine bone soaking everything it does not knock us down Ocean whipped winds beat a war cry out on my chest and dance with my Medusa hair free I stare down into that blueberry plum… Continue reading winter high seas

sun bright violets

I see you for the first time And it is like seeing storm clouds Beautiful and dark and crackling with lightning Rolling over the mountains I feel that swell of awe That rush of nervous jittering beetles That feeling of familiar That feeling of being gifted a glimpse at magic itself Somehow I am in… Continue reading sun bright violets

close, now is

Sunday morning cozy Breakfast at the table The smell of bacon and maple and pancakes Dances around our sleepy heads and over our smiling lips Like punch drunk stars The kids are excited to spend the day together Delighted eyes sparking with childish glee You and I play footsies under the table Toes doing what… Continue reading close, now is

Inside me, predator … #NationalBoyfriendDay

I am your gift To tear open You know I am careful When I unwrap surprises Painfully slow and delicate Teasing I am your goddess You sacrfice to me Sweetness incarnate Unsuspected and undreamed of Gods, I am not worthy Jealous of your skin I need to be that close to you You creep inside… Continue reading Inside me, predator … #NationalBoyfriendDay

How soon is now

How far is the distance between your fingertips and mine Interlocking laces reaching grabbing Weaving and intertwined like vines of thorns and flowers scented sweet The alchemy of mysterious gestures palmar grasp reflex Instinctual What is the average of your inhales and my exhales Terrible stretches of small eternities When you hold your breath It… Continue reading How soon is now

coming home

The leather squeaks as I shift nervously The plane comes in to land, fidgeting fingers showing the race of my mind Butterflies seems an inadequate description Turbulent, rocking, riling in my belly A flock of harried crows quarrel in my stomach Snakes and spiders and bugs creep and writhe Tap tap tapping the seat as… Continue reading coming home
