But I am not color for him

I am a choice

I dream of looking for him

I feel a sense of calmness wash over me

But then your honeyed sexy tones

Begin to stir my

Forming a cross as she floats by

Anointing us as we prepare

Joining Forces

I imagine two drops of mist join in a cloud

I feel them flow along for the ride

Pulled by the jet stream

Swallow warm vapors

As they gather electricity

 Becoming the dark storm cloud

That nourishes

The earth

My Name is Skittles
I am black
I am hooded too
Hear me hiss
Hear me meow
Hear me snarl
Hear my bloodcurdling screech
I walk across your path
My claws scratch deep
My  front teeth are sharp
Needed for self defense

I lay a curse on… Read full post »

I want to cover you with kisses

I want to explore as though I never touched you before

I want to discover… Read full post »


My friend Mary wished that "a certain, real-life man would find me

That he would be looking for someone to call his Favorite Person"

Cobalt Reflections

Flocks of glowing white doves pass my window

Like earthbound visitors in this night we make of day

Mongolian tones moan as the breeze shifts to the south

Tuning in to the vibrations as energies synchronize

Fragments of cobalt flicker in the

Coronal Ejections


Solar flares

Chunks of the sun’s plasma

Spewing forth coronal mass ejections

Ejections that change the magnetic field of our little planet

Jets of the sun’s lifeblood

Caught in a rapidly expanding corkscrew

Coils growing exponentially… Read full post »

Dancing the Cordax

Image from 



I wander into a densely wooded place with you

Narrow untrodden ground near a stand of aspen

Clasped together tightly

My movements slight but significant

My body shifts as I peel away a layer of lichen

I was a seeker of the mystery

Not exactly knowing what or where it could be found

Seeking,  a great amusement 

Taking me on grand adventures

Flamenco dancing in Parc Güell in Barcelona

A bottle of exquisite wine with lunch while

Coffee House Beginnings

The Mocha Monkey 


The first time we meet I feel you let me in

To the path beyond the hazy glimmer in your eyes

In the afternoon light of the coffee house

We listen and expound

On the theories and stories

We choose to… Read full post »

The View From My Window - Open Call

The snow fell
before the lake froze
The sun rose
and for a surprise
I found myself awake
and my camera
not hiding
and the battery charged
Now everyone can see
My tiny lake
Burandt's Lake
My tiny town
Waconia, Minnesota
This is why I stay… Read full post »

Buddhist Reunion

It was Central Park in fall

A Buddhist reunion

Forty years ago these former Hungry Hippie Stoners

Enticed by the promise of food

A little Japanese woman taught them to chant

What is a poet?


A poet is a creature who wrestles with her muse

The muse that uses  diamond drill bits 

Spinning with a deep buzz

Etching patterns in the poet’s frontal lobe

Spitting their worn diamond shavings

To fill in the missing pieces of the underdeveloped synapses… Read full post »

All In One

The last time we talked

We both remembered the time

When our lovemaking seemed

Possessed by kinetic energy

I could feel your tongue buried so deep

Inside me that you might never get it out

Warming Trends



A dragonfly landed on my shoulder at a tattoo parlor in Haight-Ashbury

It cast a shadow that moves me to hover

In soft, flowing, iridescent cloth that shimmers in

A human activity, like baking bread or playing basketball.”

I used to think a chair was just for sitting

I have tried them in all sizes and functions

My favorite is my zero gravity chair


I remember playing pony boy with grandpa on his rocking chair

Bouncing on his knee as he

(Image from Air and Fire) 


I write to the universe on bits of paper

Everything I want in this moment

Prepared for a  virgin sacrifice

After the sage pipe is passed

After the directions are called

And the elements placed strategically around the altar
