A Slice of Life In 50 Words .............Page 3 of 16    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16)
What makes us reach for something outside of our grasp, believing that what could be, will be ..spoken from the warmth of a kiss to the heart pounding passion of all out giving
the past offers a maybe, but ..,
the future ..a promise that reciprocal selflessness can last a lifetime

I wonder, little girl beneath lipstick armor, if you have any idea how precious and fleeting is this spring in your step and heart. 'Course not, it's unknowing that makes the magic. See myself in defiant eyes that want to KNOW IT ALL - NOW! Oh, child, if you only knew.

Never a truth only one can know, invisible , unspoken conspiracy to ignore,
Can the pillars of the night sky acknowledge the pulsations of our planet,
tiny dot connected by lines we havent learned to cast,
lovers living on different sides of the same barrier..
we want to say more, but how?

Ditty Dancing, Dark to Light

making our own poison ,drinking our own brew
we swallow acts and actions ,becoming what we do
choosing to grow toward the light, even plants know that is true
what we hold close within and out, made the me thats building you

two cats : one neurotic , the other a total attention whore
a gift from departing daughters, never a note ..here's a present
just knowing they will be safe..while life calls to places
the kitties cannot go.. so i watch and outlive those monsters
(unless that trick of hiding on the steps finally works)

Introduction. Instant attraction. ‘He is everything I want’. ‘She is everything I want’. Next thing you know. Committed pair. New life together. New morning breaks with its daily parcel of life-sustaining light, nature’s most enduring gift. Their last hug. Brings surreal confusion….to Love’s earthbound palette. Her most enduring memory. His last gift

Brought tears, munkisuncle. Thought I was over him but .. seeing him around occasionally reminds me he asked me not to speak to him anymore. Something about having to explain things to others. I already smile, usually, when I think of him and wish him the very best of life’s pleasures.

Black, Fredrick’s of Hollywood-type, mini-skirted version of Marilyn’s famous dress. Barbie-cleavage spilling from all sides. Strappy stilettos. Pretty, pouty lips. Flowers signed, “From your Hollywood Starlet Friend”. It’s what he called her when she phoned, “Is that your Hollywood starlet friend?”. My bestest friend at my husband’s funeral.

sipping tears from a spoon


Love this! ^


Clearly everyone here is a damn fool. Or blind. Or possibly both. Because it's just not possible that I'm the only one who is breathless when they meet your gaze. You should always be winding your way through worshippers, but I'm alone at your altar. I'm not complaining, just confused.

This has become a favorite read of mine. It's a darn good feeling to learn others have enjoyed this simple way of expressing. Each offering is appreciated.

Not alone at his alter. But the only to wish residence there. Others passed through. Paid their respects. Supped of his offerings. Then rejected his lifestyle. He made me his bride and together we created paradise out of nothing. Their nothing turned out to be everything. If they only knew..

why keep sending up smoke? you know it isnt a message that matters
so few ears hear the softest sound , then hear the voice that speaks
it isnt up to us to decide who listens,
thats a choice made from the farthest distance of all, ....you to me

Oh, yes, me too! It's both a challenge and a source of satisfaction to simplify an experience into such few words.


Oh but if we only knew... would the world not drown in a storm of weeping? Maybe it's best we don't, that we merely ache for you. Some things can never be shared; the agony of love's loss and exhilaration of it's discovery can never be completely understood by another.

it is: heat, spark, dancing- bodies and flame; rhythm- drumbeat, heartbeat, single voice raised in song, call together, laughter; sympathy, empathy, kinship- finally someone just effing gets it; silence, cacophany, mystery, clarity, exultation and exhaustion; lots of fun, lots of work, herding cats, never on time; neverending, always renewing: community.

are you here right now ,..are you scattered everywhere,
today tomorrow,..last kiss to next vision.
Can you be trusted if you can't be all at once
anywhere or anytime?
contradictions in word and deed
cannot live in the same space
can you be all in one place...ever?

Yesterday is not gone, nor is it lost or forgotten. Each yesterday has it's own unique fingerprint, locked in a mental file, stored away forever in my soul. The memory banks are my own special account, and I can make a withdrawal anytime I need a slice of my life.

you run headlong into your own integrity,
could we be more wrong than thinking we are always right..
Trying to keep out all but the best we create a maze before our door..
from the outside it looks like a trap...
it is..
and look who we caught..

giddy...thrill of doing new things. stepping past fear and plunging in. stop overthinking! look without leaping. this joy giggling up inside of me is reward enough to brave anything. If nothing else comes of it, this won't be a moment I look back on and think "If only I'd...."

no better way to see it all , a look above ,a look around,
to know why we can feel so small, following origin of every sound,
grasping suns in total splendor,
trace the thought as received from sender..
huddling within, without control..
turning light of mind upon your soul

It pains me when you're unhappy. I know the world can be cold, but I have enough love burning to warm you forever. I'll be your shelter. You are perfect and adored just the way you are. Anyone who thinks otherwise isn't worth your time, and certainly not your tears.

small eyes see everything without discretion, medula only functions , what begins the spark that will fire your soul, build a heart for us to warm, how can i reach in and make you want to reach out? using eyes and ears as doors ...
but about this grandpa nonsense...

emotions are walls without windows
shedding skin to grow , shedding pain
clearing the throat of your mind
what does your muse have to do
to get you to share
maybe you need to give her a break
find out what other sides are in
what other corners you can clear

Such wonderfully written little glimpses into each write!

“You’re doomed to a sad lonely existence. No man can compete with the power of the veils,” he wrote.
Wise words. Insight beyond measure is his who reaches that conclusion. Any man in my future will have to share me. Silk veils are a part of me I won't compromise.

how many points to define a line..
how many losses, a love
was math imagined to barter or build
or give us a handle on grief
how many times have i, must i
finding a place to hide in the numbers
how many Gods have me?

circumstance painted me into a corner today
like i care about wet paint
why do we let events leave us with no choice?
manipulated into following
living within a line no sane person would ever
sane most often means willing to suffer the situation
but not the consequences.. screw that
