A Loop Jump

I like that someone may be free with words, walk down a library aisle, see an old book on the uppermost shelf and think, ‘That might’ve been a book a person who died long ago read and it made them wish to live.’I’ve noticed that some writers want nothing more than to appear very smart.…… Continue reading A Loop Jump

Please Shut Up And Show Me The Inside Of Your Refrigerator

 That’s what I’ve been thinking these days. :)In the back, hummus, stored plant-based deli slices, stored crushed tomatoes for soup, stored plant-based bacon. Behind the grapes is a loaf of whole wheat bread and tofu. In the meat drawer is ground turkey for burgers & a turkey bowl with melted cheese and vegetables. I eat…… Continue reading Please Shut Up And Show Me The Inside Of Your Refrigerator

There Is Something Lovelier Than All Of Spring…

..And these paths spring out, so many little paths I travel and wander and roam that excite me. I don’t adorn myself with someone or something else along the way; if I find someone fascinating, I will peacefully forget myself at times without effort, how I can be found in the spirals. Mist may be…… Continue reading There Is Something Lovelier Than All Of Spring…

A Place Where Art Is Welcome And Home To A Cat To Critique It

This is a cat who dreams Peeko enjoys critiquing fine art, poetry, and music. He has consistently approved of the poets Edna St. Vincent Millay and Rumi, but only if Rumi’s poetry is translated into Shakespearean English, otherwise he’s not having it.

Why Are You Happy? Because I Didn’t Figure Myself Out Perfectly

At the library cabinet, I found two old books. Usually I take the books the students leave or the elderly. But don’t start trouble; I’ve had enough today. And yes, I used a semi-colon there. Yoga happens. Nicki Minaj – Want Some More The moon is in Libra tonight. What does that mean for me…… Continue reading Why Are You Happy? Because I Didn’t Figure Myself Out Perfectly

A Poet’s Birthday

Happy seventy-eighth birthday to the poet Louise Glück! You might remember me writing here that I was enjoying the first book I\’d read of hers, A Village Life and was excited that I discovered she lives nearby in Cambridge and that her birthday was soon to come.I wasn\’t sure this morning that I should post it because I was unable to…… Continue reading A Poet’s Birthday

Why Are You Here? Because I Wish To Give You Beautiful Things

I wasn’t looking for a poem about a storm but just another one by Edna and I quickly found this one of hers that is new to me, a storm within it.*It’s interesting how excited one can be living a life that’s outwardly so very ordinary like mine. What makes it exciting? My perspective and…… Continue reading Why Are You Here? Because I Wish To Give You Beautiful Things

A Light Rain, The Feeling of Thunder

The wind was picking up; I could smell the scent of rain as in the cool start of summer, ‘though it’s spring now. And then came a light rain. If there’s going to be a storm, let it be a good kind of storm.*Earlier: A Fairy Getting Something Ready
