Oh Hey Wednesday!

Half way through the week *slam dunk*. Yeah, it’s a good feeling to get here. I was going to watch the machinist…and then it’s 930. Seeing as I have to be up in 11 hours? Yeah, so not happening.

But, I have a poem for You. Yeah, I was pretty pumped about it too. I’ve been thinking about patterns of late. So this baby was born. I hope you enjoy!

Pattern’s Two Faces
A/N: SFW, Rating: G

There’s comfort in pattern’s
endless consistency: 
the way the sun rises and 
sets, 
the moon’s changing faces, 
how the tide just 
kisses 
the shore.

But then I recall,
the way a father rejects
his son, just as 
his father rejected him.
How an 
eye 
for an eye 
for 
an eye 
spreads only 
blindness and rage 
through space and time.

Patterns lacking hope
are a night without 
stars,
a morning devoid of 
dawn, the horizon 
absent 
from the sky.

I’ve signed up for wewriwa *bites fist* so stay tuned for a new section of Hagar and Ishmael’s story 🙂

Heatwaves and Poetry

Whew it is too hot outside these days. As much as I love nature, I am a wimp when it comes to heat. Then again, I am a ginger…

What have I been up to? Photography and poetry lately. Life’s been crazy and the muse needs time for longer fiction.

so hot… but still great light!

Today’s poem: Grief’s Labyrinth

Somewhere between
your synapses and neurons,
you hide, wrapped in grief,
a blanket so thick I
can’t see you. Perhaps
it’s selfish to feel
affected by your tragedy,
but I missed you even as
I slept next to you. Space
and silence have their
places, but so do the
comforts of words
and simple hands.

Please, come back. I
do not wish to force you
from your grief. I only
want to know where you
hide in the labyrinth of
emotions. I can’t find the
exit to this place, but I can
hold you for a moment,
giving you a part of my
strength, a moment’s rest,
time to find your way again.

I also really enjoy taking photos of strangers on the subway… Hopefully my creeping will improve so I can get face shots!

Happy Thursday y’all. New update of Hagar and Ishmael this Saturday!!

A Break in Our Usual Programming….

Hello friends, family, countrymen, and other soon to be acquaintances!

First: small update, not as much writing of late because my awesome amigo Lewis was in town staying with me. So we’ve been romping around DC. Today he’s leaving me. And although my wallet is a bit thinner, I will certainly miss him!

Also, as I have been delving into creativity of writing…I have also found I love photography, specifically with the Iphone and then manipulating them with programs (ie snapseed). So, while more fiction IS on the way, here’s some eye candy for now.

Sea Otters at the National Zoo. Can’t you see why I love them?

They may be extinct…but you can still find a dinosaur at the zoo!

The metro stop looks so wild and wonderful like this!

Shadow legs on the beach. I love how they look like Alien legs.

A stranger, waiting for the storm. This is one of my favorites.
