Angel Bestows License and Wings to Mortal

Vertebrae twitched

As he examined the parchment in his hands

How still

Beautiful, he stayed

Looking at my letters…

Angel Trumpets in the Garden

I took up my pen with the precise point

And permanent black ink

Incising meticulously

Every freckled feather

Her haunches blossomed…

This is to Mother You - Open Call

I came across an old post of Kim Gamble's calling for words that make you cry, that touch you deeply, that pluck a deep chord in your chest. I thought I might re-sound the call here and now. Please do add yours below, so we can all share in their power.

For me, this song by Sinead O'Connor is unbearably beautiful when I hear it as a child. As a mother, it is an anthem to the bigger-than-the-universe love I have for my…

Report: The World is Not Over Today

It is raining up there today. Maybe you got that tiny tree you always wanted. Your brother drove you to the tree lot.

The hinges on my rusty porthole squeak open and shut out here on my empty sea today. He does not answer.

My brother who lives in the desert was born on this day in 1961. He is content and safe.

The coffee gurgled in the machine and…

The Flock

Hey, Grace, didja see the flyers all over the place about the Reynolds girl gone missing?” Duke flipped his brim to the back and adjusted his belt below his belly before straddling the stool at the corner of the counter.

“Yeah, Phil said him and the other guys over’t the sheriffs’re headed up to the park right now to check for her there. She goes out on the dock on the south side of the lake to draw.” Grace slid the…

Authors Who've Seduced Me

I ought to be dead. Really, it would best if the notebooks were published posthumously. I can picture my daughter  sitting at my desk with dust motes drifting in the shafts of late afternoon sun.  Her heavy strawberry blond hair will hang about her face as she bends over, deciphering my hatched block printing. She has opened the drawer on the lower left, the one with all the notebooks. She will sit there well into the dark, I’m sure, traipsing through my…

Cold Truth on the Pacific Crest Trail

Three days down from the Canadian border, the rains began.  After  fording the glacial river, we were frozen and wet below the waist. Then the rain started soaking through the hoods of our parkas. We hiked up out of the misty forest, above the treeline…

Portraits of Heroes: Lincoln and Others

Uncle Ben's eyes twinkled at me, admonishing me to mind my pennies. He kept on doing it even though I was gaping at him as though he were a revered  old uncle.  Uncle Ben is definitely a hero of mine.

Your Darling River

My swollen brown breasts suckled the children in those days

When you flowed in me, and I in you

 The  grey Babblers splittered sparks in the Downs

You plunged into shady sweet pools

I rose to greet you in the garden

When we rolled and ebbed

You…

The Transit of Venus or The Measure of Love

 

“This will be the last Transit of Venus in your lifetime.”

Well, I better check it out then. I mean, the Goddess of Love’s passing has got to be a sign of change.

Tango for Dummies

Kids, I tell them every so often, every day has something to offer:

 

·         Occasionally, you’re struck by beauty, small beauty with a big B, something I call life poetry, and those are times when you’re just glad to be alive at that very instant.

·         Sometimes it’s a laugh, or maybe just a smile flinching on your lips…
