The Big Eye

The Big Eye stares at me waiting for me to stare at it. Silent—it seems or does it emit both off and on? Stories of fear, inane blathering lies of propaganda mind-dulling, time eater, not in my house will you … Continue reading

Webs

Wicked webs of intrigue Black widow’s kiss of death, webs spun with hate and greed luring the unwary. Webs of golden threads draping shawls of life between floresta sentinels. Huge spiders cavort, dangling on silken strands creating spiral designs of … Continue reading

Reality

What is real? Child playing with a roly-poly puppy, nearby, a sore-laden man shoots false hope in a vein. Bombs fall ending another’s reality. Rainbows of love connect me to you. Which reality is “real?”

Another Day

Overlays of bird songs Moos of hungry calves Crickets adding rhythms Dew glistening on wands of grass Fairies cuddling in slumber After a moonlit night of play. Another day is dawning filling me with joy and gratitude.
