haiku: Art All Night

Art All Night fills me
with a warmth even this Spring
can barely equal.

Magnetic Poetry

I will explore this universe
drink every lucious drop
of berry sweet magic
fresh sacred beauty sprouting
in my secret garden heart

Cherry blossom snow
is a sure sign of Spring and
there's no shoveling.

haiku (with Jay)

gray subway masses,
all alone together, just
trying to get home

55 Fiction Friday

"More brandy, Randy!" she roared in a most unprincess-like manner.

"Randal," muttered the wizard under his breath, but he said nothing more as, with a complicated twiddle of his wand, he produced a bottle of Napoleon brandy from thin air.  This was quite a trick considering Napoleon Bonaparte wouldn't be born for another seven centuries.

Feral daffodils
where a home was demolished -
we "rescue" the bulbs.

55 Fiction Friday

Employing Jonathan Livingston Seagull thinking, I strained to believe I could fit inside the keyhole, that I was standing in the keyhole.  Suddenly I was.

I couldn't believe it.

I was dreaming which meant I could control things, could even fly! 

That's how I fell thirty-three inches to my death. It was no dream.

Mothering my lone
daffodil bud, I bundle
it up on cold nights.

I tried as hard as i could not to smudge the ink as i carried the manuscript across the room to the drying shelves. I’d been a novice for only nine days and i’d screwed up something on all of them. Thank goodness God forgives.
