If We Were Having Coffee, March 17th

If we were having coffee today, March 17th, I’d invite you in for some coffee and cornbread. My husband made it. It’s delicious! He’s busy right now making corned beef and cabbage in honor of St. Patrick’s Day. Perhaps you’ll stay for dinner. We’d love to have you. As we sipped our expresso, I’d tell you how happy I am that spring is almost here. … Continue reading If We Were Having Coffee, March 17th

Tranquility Cove – #writephoto

healing waters caressing a lonely shore healing hearts meant to mend mend a spinning mind mend tiny scars scars buried too deep scars open and bleeding bleeding to release the poison bleeding to wash away the pain pain beneath the surface pain all too consuming consuming everything consuming nothing nothing to do but wait nothing to do but wait wait for this to pass wait … Continue reading Tranquility Cove – #writephoto

Growth

Witness renewal born under burnt skies and frozen fields Strength finds stability on shaky ground And even as vernacular spews vulgarity in messages meant to disguise fear and longing growth takes hold And even as angels sigh weary from age-old battles growth takes hold It takes hold A young man will find his way and broken hearts will mend out there on vast oceans as … Continue reading Growth

After The Storm

Guess I should have known benediction lingers between light and shadow between elation and fury urging explicit emotion to rest as the embers of hellfires cool And like the wind caressing tender petals after that fierce storm redemption waits as the last wildflower loses its tremble and turns to face the sun Prophecy soaring on the silver wings of guardian angels renames fate, reconfiguring every … Continue reading After The Storm

Mary

A matriarch who glittered without a crown she saw beauty on that night when the stars were upside down Feisty and well-renown she loved her family with all her might A matriarch who glittered without a crown And even as we were bound to frown her positive energy cast a light when the stars were upside down It was her wish that we’d all be … Continue reading Mary

If We Were Having Coffee, February 3rd

If we were having coffee today, February 3rd, I’d invite you in and share some of these delicious gingersnap cookies. They’ll go perfectly with our cappuccinos. Don’t mind Rocco. He’s been extra cuddly lately, along with Little Kitty. Must be the cold. I’d ask how you’ve been faring during this polar vortex. It’s been brutal! I’d show you the pictures I took of the water … Continue reading If We Were Having Coffee, February 3rd

Remy’s Revenge

Today’s poem is a preview of Remy’s Revenge which is the sequel to my book, Tales from Blarnach. And so they emerge from clay ice crystals gleaming in the sun as daggers ready to pierce the day shallow souls follow they follow Wicked ones bend ‘round the mist wafting through vents in cracked walls waiting for evil lurking in their midst shallow souls lost and hollow lost … Continue reading Remy’s Revenge
