“This Is…”

Humidity. This is the red flower moon full of… This is an anonymous lady shouting out, grilling, “Don’t be sorry, honey!” [to a man with her] of me, after there was no altercation, but only kindly manners, as he’d come quickly around a hidden bend, jogging toward my cart as I stepped aside, said I…… Continue reading “This Is…”

“The Reddest Leaves”

Don’t talk about the dream aloud, so I see that little brown, glossy-coated bear running low to the ground and coming toward me in the solitary, unmoving morning air, beside the outside gate of the swimming pool, and in the dream, I consider, if I don’t glare at the bear, if I act kindly, it…… Continue reading “The Reddest Leaves”

The Moon’s Different Forms Tonight

… Before bed Through the window, the moon is now shaped as a soft golden-yellow chrysanthemum and then like little square windows painted all golden-white…the tears left, the face kissed… while in the dark. —Jade

“Who Knew”

Calm, I knew well, interlocked, entwined with mine. Superior, yet open always…first, that certain pale blue, the expansiveness that is close, contentment…Trust, feel safe with my soul-friend; I’d heard from others you looking down often, none of your little news, and mostly I’ve been looking up since I would look, meet both places, eyes meet…… Continue reading “Who Knew”

This Particular Moon in My Window—…For You

Mar. 18 The moon calms me, especially this one. This is a moon I wouldn’t have imagined looking exactly like this one.

The Sky Full of Blush with a Very Golden Moon

We had a silent literary salon today—we looked at the sky: through the window, I noticed just how the two pines are entwined and that there are three different greens, one much like the very feathery white-green of winter, and we read📕O Pioneers! by Willa Cather. That’s the evening sky above, with sufficient blush, and…… Continue reading The Sky Full of Blush with a Very Golden Moon

Last Night’s Dream I Had About Yoga

I had a dream about yoga last night, but I don’t remember the dream, just the subject. And I didn’t like the way the two poses I’d photographed for this post felt either when I tried them again. But I keep them in place as that is a good practice in life, even if I…… Continue reading Last Night’s Dream I Had About Yoga

Three Rumis in a Row

When I go to a bookstore, like Barnes and Noble, or the library, I may check on some of my favorite poets: I found two books by the Persian author Rumi, b. Sept. 30, 1207, d. Dec. 17, 1273, who I have come to find nurturing and protective feelings towards as a (younger) brother of…… Continue reading Three Rumis in a Row


letting my hair begin to dry in morning sun and atmosphere I find myself feeling replenished and my balance more restored with great help from God and others and myself in my gratitude, simplifying my project focus and goals beforehand, pure coconut oil left-in for hair and skin and aromatherapy (it’s a fruit😊), and a…… Continue reading Replenished
