Dancing Dragonflies

The fly fisherman is performing ballet with his lineCelebrating God’s creation with the rising sunshine Viewing the immense buck in a soft meadow of cloverFloating on a tender moment until my pain slid over Retinas reflecting the brilliant yellow of the sunflowerSquirrels eat the seeds as they bend their giant tower Dragonflies carry fairies across […]

A Child’s Prayer

Oh light where did your splendid sparkle goTo touch the heaven that I knowWhere I visit God and sit upon His lapI talk with Jesus, lay upon a lion, and take a napJoyful colors make a rainbow of love that can danceAngel wings soar, and fragrance doth enhanceThe brilliance of the moment in the skyI […]

Earthly Ornaments

Our Lord reaches down and kisses the earth softly.Angels cry tears creating melodious mist on strings,garden spiders create to entertain tourists for lunch.Astounding smells of infused beauty melting before me.Tuberose absolute mixing with gardenias and gliding,stroking smooth skin uniting with sweat into gloriousaromas of coconut and sun caressed bodies – chatting.Swaying in the wind are […]

Struggling […]

Sweat gently trickles between the aging tan skin of my breasts.Seasoned are the chambers of this heart that passed the test,Enduring each stage of suffering that came, for He knew best! Death took me not, for as a snowflake unique, He put me on Earth,Life forces surging, His spirit dwells in me, a few years […]

Once Treeless

Paralyzed by emotions, dismal visions haunt my eye’s memoryFaces in plates, probing hands of strangers, and the smell of pee.Fairy letters under wet pillow laid, hoping they will set me free. A veil of melancholy wraps me like a cocoon as dread is calling.Our neighbor plucks buckshot from the leg, her husband’s shot.The smell of […]
