the star

my wish was granted before the star fell down last night. it leaped into the deepest ocean lit in between the swirling seaweed. constantly twinkling its pointed corners moving from here to there. upwards it flew towards the sky having landed on the cool grass. it illuminated the ground below sprinkling golden dust of jewels. [...]


cold night

eyes dry from the heater cold metal cover rattles old winter hails snow dust sprinkled on cement ground masking hardness for fluffiness the indentations of footprints cat paw prints walking after the midnight storm

going with the flow

I haven't painted in so long. I've had mini sparks of inspiration here and there to get my supplies out and just start. But I always end up resisting it. Or I'm too lazy to actually do the work. The motivation in me to do things this week has dwindled down a lot compared to [...]


cycles of life in the form of oval-shaped symbols of existence and non-existence socio-economic backgrounds through labor and digestion fast-food industries to farmland America to vegans and fitness buffs to children and their children shells of all varieties cracked, broken, smooth, intact, colored, white, spotted or not. the yolks of continuity boiled, beaten, scrambled, poached, [...]

teenage love

youth hormones formulate trials and experiments with love invested inwards feelings placed up reality kicks it back down heart and body reactions unseen forces gripped tight no straight paths only through and around Why d'ya have to be so cute?

They were so perfect, they looked like they were made by hand; a controlled and intentional creation. But rather, they stemmed from nature. Grown from a blueprint unseen and unpredictable. I [...]

twinkling love stars

You laughed the stars Into the sky Twinkling along Mountains at night For everyone to see Wishing and dreaming A love that stays as True and bright. Cubby created the first two lines with her writing prompt: Laughter. Now that I realize the title of the poem prompt, this post could have gone another way [...]

i’ll remember

quiet times breed this uncertainty a doubt that spreads inwards until it circulates throughout and explodes through tears that stream down my face. i'll remember times of golden sunshine halos around his head as he smiles and laughs hums and sings his loudest note never caring how he looked. a love from his belly to [...]


the stove was red hot, lit like firecrackers blood in panic. the kettle yelled for help, screaming. sirens rushing as the smoke signaled quick! quick! hush hush, breathes heartbeats. pound. pound. pound........ lifeline stopped. stove turned off. moments. of. silence. burner becomes cool. tea leaves scatter to the very bottom of the cup.

not here

The overwhelming memories Faze in and out of my mind Like a visual crescendo of life Passing through the years. Your voice is the audio track Tracing the outlines of what was. Tears stream down my face Starting out warm, Then cold as it reaches my chin. I search for you in my mind. My [...]

above rough waters

Life seems a bit like being thrown into chaotic waters. We are deer in headlights because the world can just toss and turn us into a whole new dimension that we have to assimilate to. To understand a whole new way of life is such a mind and body bender. Deep breathes; a moment to [...]
