Thank You! You Give My Words Life!


So much gratitude to top fans/followers! You guys are really bolstering my spirits with writing, and giving me such sweet and encouraging words. I appreciate it… more than you know. Everyone hits a lull once in awhile. I’m in that right now, but mostly because I’m so happy. I decided I’ll write…

Aw, you are an inspiration to me too, my dear! πŸ’œ

This lightning storm
Is what fireworks
Want to be
When they grow up
Tearing the clouds
Borrowing bits of
Refracted color
From this
Summer sky
An extraordinary
Display of
Beauty and fury

Like Stage Fright

When I think
About texting you
My palms sweat
And my heart
Knocks around
The inside
Of my chest
A few simple words
Start to feel
Like the most
Thing I have
Ever written
Like I really
Need this
To be epic
I just keep
And closing
My contacts

The smoke crept
Over the valley
In the night
On the heels of
A lightning strike
The blazing hills
Set the moon
On fire
It isn’t safe
To go outside

Fire Season

Summer is
Stretched taut
Across the valley
Sooner than
I thought
She would be
Heat shimmers
Tempers flare
Coyote energy
Dances around
The fire with me
Slipping in
And out of
Shadows easily
Spiraling on
Wisps of smoke
That cling
To every inch
Of me
In my clothes
Seeping in to
Skin beneath

I walk through dreams
These past few weeks
No escaping
This wicked heat
My consciousness
Abandoned me
She ran off with
My sanity
Now everything
Is so surreal

I Could Sleep For Weeks

Rubbing tired eyes
I know you’ll be in my dreams
Where we always meet

The heat leaches
All the color
From the streets
Rubber melts
The air is scratchy
Like breathing
Cotton candy
I can’t seem
To think
About anything
For more than
A millisecond
The streets
Are shifting
Past me
Like scenes
Inside a


This storm
Just will not
Rolling in
I can feel it
Pressing against
My skin
Damp and heavy
Filled with
I wish
It would
Break over me
Spill down
On to the
Parched earth
Leave me

Sleight of Hand

All I have to do
Is reach down
To the bottom
Of my soul
And coax
All of the magic
Out of the
Dark corners
And up on to
The surface
Of my skin
Cutting my hands

Sorry I haven’t been around the last few days, I’ve had heat exhaustion and I just kept passing out. My fever finally broke today and I am starting to feel a bit better. I’m hoping that tomorrow I will feel sassy enough to get something written! I hope you all had a great weekend!!!

I love you too, sweets!!! πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’‹πŸ’‹πŸ’‹

The wildfire
In your eyes
Burns through
The walls
Of my dreams
Each night
Making a
Smoking ruin
Of the fortress
Where I
Tried to hide

The crescent moon
Has a message
Just for me
And I keep
On thinking
That I have
Sussed out
Her meaning
Then she rises
Up in to
The quiet sky
Starts shining
Her holy fire
Through the trees
Until it meets
My eyes again
She is still
Speaking to me
And I am
Not grasping
All of the

3 Positive Things About My Day

I was tagged by infamouslyroggy

And it is a gooooood day to tag me for this one, I am feeling especially blessed today.

1. My son Jareth let me sleep in this morning, later than I ever sleep. He quietly played his 3DS, while I dreamed away the better part of the morning. I lazily drifted out of some fairly impressive lucid dreaming, awoke in a sunbeam, it was beautiful.

2. Spending time in my backyard. The plum trees and berry patches are laden with fruit, my garden is wild and verdant, overflowing with herbs and greens and blossoms. My deck is surrounded by all kinds of trees, the sun slants down through the leaves, diffused and surreal. It is just an amazing place to BE.

3. My friends and family are amazing. I am so blessed to know all of the people in my life. In real life and here in the TWC, I know some of the strongest, most unique, loving and creative people that exist. I don’t know how I got so lucky.

I am tagging melissahem aubriestar and badgirlbanshee tell me about your day!!
