The Lovely Turning

To that gem, that sapphire of the seasons.
To the softening of the summer heat in to the cool crisp of autumn.
To that lovely turning from late-night campfires and cricket bells to evening blankets and crunchy leaves.
To the coming of festival and lightly spiced air.

Happy September.

But not really

Happy spring … with bells on!
Actually it’s that fluffy frozen vapor we’ve all gotten to know so well, but I’ve been banned  from saying or writing the word. You laugh, but scary things happen when winter pays too much attention.
And so now it is march. I realize I haven’t posted in more than a month, but I might have spent that time accidently predicting and causing winter storm mayhem while being sick. It was not as awesome as it sounds. But if you don’t believe me, you can try on my suuperpower for a day.
Anyway, happy thawing everyone! Hope you all survived the winter. Read more…

Rainy Night in May

Dreams dance too close to stars when velvet paints the night.
Fears look for lonely souls, sending whispers to make them shiver.
Wishes swim on currents of whimsy, ascending to join the court.
Rain like seeking taps at windows.
Lightning slashes
Jagged streaks,
Cracking whips of thunder,
Exposing all,
Exposing all.
But secrets are night’s play,
Returning on cool breezes to tickle the ears of those who sleep.
I do not sleep.
I wake to hold the night,
To drink the wild of it into my soul,
To fill my lungs with its intoxication.
The night is full,
and I
am thirsty.
Shivering cold as the earth.
Lying uncovered,
trying
to clutch
at sky.

To summer

Lying on the beach.
The sand and shells beneath me.
Sun kisses my face.

Roar of the ocean.
The salty brine fills the air.
Oh, freezing water!

A pearly white stone,
The roundest one I have found,
Glitters like a gem.

Table salt sea salt.
Sand retreats beneath my toes.
Clenzing splash of waves.

Mirror of water.
Sudden flight of flightless things.
Many dancing suns.
