I’m Still Alive!

Sorry for the silence folks. I have just started a new job and with everything going on… I have been a bit neglectful.

But, I am still writing (amazingly, somehow I still find time for these things). Today we are back to ze poetry!

The Ringmaster

Rating: G

I watch you, tall
and full of life, the
crowds hypnotized
by your voice. Yet
I yearn to tear down
your gilded mask. How
do you speak in the
dark? Do you walk tall,
lost in a crowd? The
world has your many
acts, but I want you.

 

If you look closely...you can see me

If you look closely…you can see me

 

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!!

Life and its Complications

Hola chicas y chicos. Sorry to have been MIA, but with getting back from NYC, I haven’t had the time to write or devote to this blog as I would have liked. Settling back in, I now should be getting back to a more normal posting schedule.

*French Accent* Let us get on to ze art! Mesdames et Messieurs I give youuu not onleee a poeeeem but alsooo  photographs!

Physical Revelation

Rating: PG language, but insinuates adult themes? (It’s SFW)

And I bend before you
fully revealed in the light:
every fold and crease,
every hair and freckle
open to your gaze.
Is this what Abraham
felt standing before the
divine, broken open,
seen fully
for the first time?
I don’t know if I am
a million or one in
your silent gaze. 

(Still I keep a part
closed tight, something
hidden for preservation
against fear’s whispered
future. My mind imagines
sharp words, my
heart can’t help but hear.
I am strong, but oh,
it would be so easy
to break under
your sharp tongue)

Happy Wednesday! 

Stuck on a bus

Hello! As I am writing this I am stuck on a bus trying to get into NYC. It’s been an overextended trip due to mechanical issues. *sigh* it’s happened so many times to me now I’m not even annoyed.

So excited to catch up with one of my oldest friends, Melissa, this weekend. I will have more photographs of shenanigans when I get back but I wanted to post some today too.

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.
