yeah, happy bday, darlin.
I sent you a bday mail this morning incase you couldn't find
the invisible forum. That wasn't a dimentia joke. lol

you look much younger than your years.
and no, I haven't had a ton of beers..
you really do
hope you don't mind me telling you

I drove by the civic center today and the neon said summer ice skatin'
You popped into my mind for some reason.
prolly that skater figure you're still sportin'
at least that's what I'm guessin'..

you're a definition of aging gracefully.
and you know I'm not big on flattery..
I've never once told an ugly girl she's pretty.
that's why I don't write for hallmark, baby...

here's to finding some cake that we can eat and keep, too!

awww, thanks for all the good wishes, friends! My muse is... hell, I hope she isn't dead but I'm wondering. I just don't get the urge to write any more. It's sad, but it IS, so *sigh*

I miss it.

Life's going okay, same old, same old. Both daughters in love and the grandkids are all thriving. Since we just want our kids to be happy, I'm happy.

insect shells disintegrate pretty quickly, and I've moved a gazillion times. So I don't have the shells anymore. I did get to see a locust shed their shell once, how very vulnerable they are...I stayed right by just in case a bird decided to get some fast food...

the bed I've made

it was the magnolias
the daffodils
yellow, and white
forsythia and redbud

it is the peonies
in their fuschia blaze
the purple iris
against the endless green
the popcorn bush
I thought was ailing
roaring to spring
it is the bleeding heart
dripping and laden
and on the right,
the bronze iris
and the hope
that this year
the west peony
will open
and reward my patience

and still,
and still....
the lemon lillies are opening
with their divine scent
the astilbe buds
the daylillies
the sturdy backdrops of hostas

Late summer will be
the magnolia
toad lillies
and black eyed susan
chinese lantern

I spend too much
on flowers...

how can I ever
too much?

Great Virtue

I kind of wish you'd leave out those last two stanzas (the last 5 lines) without which this is a great testament of love, of hope. The "I" statements feel like an intrusion; the rest of this is beautiful!

hell poooooooooooooooooooooooe , its was her birthday!
she can say anything she wants! Geesh! :P

i planted all my flowers
hung my hummingbird feeder
It's like I expect somethin magical to happen
But it always does!
So I know what we hope for
and I know what we wish!
Sometimes it's just like a
magical Kiss! :)
doesnt mean ...
I cant wish!

Happy Summer girleeeeee! :)

Jer, I like the last five lines the best :) I say that to myself every year, but I can't seem to stop entirely buying plants. And usually get quite a return on my investment...

lucid, it's been awhile. Thanks for the well wishes, I did have a great day.

Woobs and Jules, *hugs* It's sad to see the pond stagnant like this, isn't it?

tiger, tiger

subliminal rumble
underground stream
walk a wire of tension
just be careful
not to stumble
any little mention
feeds the whisper
to a scream

you make me hungry
the more you annoy
the more I want to take you
push you, force you
make you
take me rough
and pound away the b!tch
you put it there
and only you
can scratch this itch

jer, thanks...not sure I'm back, just was inspired by something in first, last. I'm not really gone, I'm out of ideas. Or I should say, out of the language to express ideas.

Brizo, believe me I can empathize with that, specially since I'm in the midst of a torrent of writing new poems. Re the language issue, maybe you should try writing them in Latvian, then translating them?

if I knew Latvian... :)


the undesirable entrails
divined by chicken foot
what can I say but
I do not want this fate?
I've enough upon my plate
living out my karmic fails
and finishing details
without coordinates
surviving life's travails
and searching
for the exit

here's one...

market trend

a wish held for posterity
sweetness and parity
level out bad luck
we were so dazed
when the bottom dropped
that we forgot
to duck

Hush little baby do not cry
mama will sing you a lullaby.

at the moment you die...
each and every sky
will open...the sun will shine.

you will hear all lullabies
at the end...
stern is gone.
only a softly whispering refrain.

do not cry...
this then is my wish...
If I could command
I would be there to see the sun.

This reminds me of the book I just finished, The Amber Spyglass. They let the trapped souls out of a waiting hell to dissolve in the atmosphere.

stage fright

In the it.
obey your instinct
let your mind intuit
you've dithered
and you've d!ckered
while your misgivings bickered
and weighted
your initiative
with a ball and chain of fear

the knock you're hearing
is opportunity
announcing that it's here

and this is clear
it won't stay long
and sitting this one out
is wrong

so still your quaking heart
you've studied for the part

handful of dirt

wandering lines left
lost on the mappings
latitude, longitude
scored and scarred
the fairytale
was somehow marred
the graveyard gates
are locked and barred
and losing you
was just too hard

here's a literary masterpiece...

marshmallow maties

where are the charms
in my marshmallow maties?
If I wanted more starch
I'd fvcking eat taties
I shake and I shake
and I trust it to fateeez
but where are the charms
in my marshmallow maties?

Yes, where are the charms
in my marshmallow maties?
Are they in a handbasket
headed for hades?
they'll show up in my bowl
rather sooner than lateez
so where are the charms
in my marshmallow maties?

How did I happen to overlook this? It's superb! There's such authoritative control throughout it, setting us up for those killer last two lines.

Indeed, .word.on.the.street, post #2358 is SO profound that it doesn't even appear on here. I'm thinking maybe you meant #2258?

I may have one...

I am of the dot, of the line; all squared
The impetus, circled; spirals prepared
Celestials of life, a component; invention
I am visible and concealed; an absolute extension
In suspension; I linger, and there I wait
Electrical impulses, my initiation gate
I border the transcendental and the material ground
In space, and in time, is where I am bound
I am not all spirit, nor am I a beast
Peace in contemplation; fulfillment when I feast
I, like a child, have parents to obey
My invisible father, in me, finds his way
My mother beats her stimulating drum
Her music, through spheres; I to hum
She schemes through regulations; my freedom to constrain
She does her best to teach and to train
With the passing of time; I, the continuation line
My material activity; my gradual decline
I am loosing my convergence; all that I know
I can no longer perform in this material show
My presence is fading; no longer am I
No longer to feel; no will, or to try
I travel the spheres back toward the line
To the dot I return, in obscurity I shine
