Random Awesomeness

Announcements, rants, affirmations and all else that doesn’t quite fit into the other categories are posted here. From poetry that probably won’t be made into a song, to in-the-moment expressions of thoughts and feelings that probably won’t make it into a story. I will share here, whatever comes to mind and heart. Occasionally, I also may take creative writing pieces from my past, revise and revive them to post here.

12/2/18: Joy to the Naked

We make our own holidays Our time changes Everything and nothing Gone are the fears of tradition The tearful rendition No more the phony fad tunes Artifice, nom de plume Give us not We take our own solo-days Our shine ranges Everywhere and nowhere Here is the joy and the sadness The odd random gladness [...]

12/1/18: Dream a Naked Dream

I'm walking through the narrow streets of a very old city. There is dirt and dust everywhere. The buildings on either side of the street I'm on now, are all at least three stories high. One has tall white pillars and crumbly sides. The stairs are crumbly too. I am suddenly drawn inside. Someone in [...]

11/24/18: Bloody Nonsense

They can spot the culprit And magnify it on a screen Those scientists and doctors Can pinpoint that nasty gene And with a little engineering They can take that wayward train And they can get it back on track So you're smart, straight, thin, and sane ------ Loudon Wainwright III ------------------------------------------------- Last night I watched [...]

11/20/18: On the Mend

Things do get old. They dry up and fold. Decrepit dermis. Decay and mold. Climate of sin. On succulent skin. Will crinkle and crack. Ooze from within. Still is the bone. Not written in stone. Moving like marrow. There to atone. Come not the end. This body, this friend. Nurture its nature. And live on [...]
