A world of five - seven - five. At one time daily, now kind of sporadic.

Lightning and pouring rain
The sky was alive!

And a new dream is posted!

This warm first day of Summer

She was born into the world
Happy Birthday, Mom!

The arms of Diamondhead now hold my Grandmother's ashes.
A beautiful place to rest the flesh for eternity.

May the celestial road rise to meet her,
And may a celestial wind be at her back.

(Diamondhead is an extinct volcano on the island of Oahu in Hawaii)

Something Different...

This week's theme: Some Prose:

These wings of shadow cover all,
How much longer can a million eyes not see?
The breath of the world is changing,
And her heart beats more rapidly.
Melting icecaps and encroaching deserts,
Are just symptoms of a growing disease.
Could humanity be the poison?
Or just spectators in this calamity?
What if it's our warming Sun,
That is increasing its activity?
Then we sit and wait 'til the day is done,
Because we lose control over future possibilities.

I'll miss you, Meemaw.

This week's theme: Anything

A lifetime away...
I can hear you calling me
Across black cosmos

The words rearrange
But I'm not listening now
And I won't answer

Crabs, barbeques, shore trips, and
Girls in bikinis!

A Cardinal sings
Of winds and currents high up
Gliding in sunlight

Monday and Tuesday, June 4th and 5th, 2007

This week's theme: Anything

I can't smile at this
When I fell in this shadow
Half a world away

She lies in bed, sick...
And I can do nothing
But wait and worry

Blue Hawai'ian waves
Can't help a frail failing mind
This sadness crushes

This week's theme: Anything

Boil my skin away
And burn this complacency
The one solution:
