Tell Me About You

There might have been a small overflow of posts from 10 yrs ago or more come up in your email from the blog this weekend from when I was updating my WordPress plan…These were posts mysteriously restored and not an avalanche of relevant news, my apologies. I wrote this About Me yesterday to share on…… Continue reading Tell Me About You

“As If I Had Been the Harp Then and the Hidden Music”

—for Miss May Ziadeh You were close to me last night with your compassion and how you were cherishing me; I felt the feather-soft way your fingers moved through my hair, the shape of your hands familiar and welcome…You placed your face close to mine and whispered in my ear a little while, quick soft…… Continue reading “As If I Had Been the Harp Then and the Hidden Music”

An Imagined Room and View, 2

I sketched this view again, a scene from my imagination I’d shown, and this time I added to the subject and added colored pencils with the pastel (wasn’t a great blend of two mediums for me but I tried). Seeing this, I found a change to make to the subjects. I am finding my way…… Continue reading An Imagined Room and View, 2

Peeko’s Fiction Pick and Photo Shoot

photos Jun 11, ’22 evening with a bookmark I’d found too I am reading at a slow, meditative pace the novel, Queen Hereafter by Susan Fraser King set in Scotland in 1000 AD.

“Love Exists” by Amy Lee (Guy Sigsworth Remix) Began with Italian Lyrics

Since I’d first heard Amy Lee (well-known as the lead singer of Evanescence), I always hoped she would someday do a solo album because I’d loved her voice and enjoyed it much more than the band’s music personally at the time, and then many years later I‘d found she had done a solo album with…… Continue reading “Love Exists” by Amy Lee (Guy Sigsworth Remix) Began with Italian Lyrics

Secrets

*It isn’t always easy to know who will enjoy a certain secret with me or which one they may like. *If someone doesn’t like my secret it isn’t taken away from me then but it may feel like it. *Secrets are always safe in poetry and fiction. *I use the word secret lightly to mean…… Continue reading Secrets

“Without Question”

roses, high noon (a quatrain) I used to fear the night, but ’round your head, there was a glow. I liked it better than the sun, It was love, I was yet to know. —Jade
