I am smiling "wow."

I feel some need to urge you all
to touch the print behind her where
there are pots and pans drawn light
I feel some need to make it right
Look at her--the left of her--
I weep, containing arrows crossed
and nothing there that speaks of grieve
or even in her smile "she lost"
sitting there with one cig smile
gasping
of exclaim I style
seeking certain my own way....

We will see this
our own way
begging for release I say:
"Yep. The bitch went that a'way...
with a finger fooling doubt."

Sweetheart, you asked me for some inspiration?  Well, I had to dig back into the archives [I think my muse went to Hyannis Port or something..] So, for you...



~*~


A Serenity Prayer

She stands among the presence of a prayer
There at the garden gate
“Voici, mon pere” in silent whisper
which only she can dedicate…

Velvet scratches are her voice,
As afternoon light comes dappling her skin,
Little slivers are her stigmata
As we see her light within…

Slowly sparking the gypsy
To speak again,
With voices rendering the last call
To come dancing
Though they be scary smooth…

Slowly she is losing paint
As the Mississippi rises steam
And weary is she, erased
Of God knows what little sin…

But the sentence stands
There alone in blue chalk dust

As Sunday Service
Calls to her in shades of Amadeus
With wine, and me…

Her hand held out, she touches me
As if to impart a word,
But My Father knows as do I

That she flies alone, and free.

~*~


Some poets take a lot of time in creating titles that can stand alone as a poem...this is an example of the titles [in italics] created by Serenity...which lend themselves alone to wonderful thoughts, and much needed inspiration.

Serenity?  Thank you, my dear....for letting me borrow a little so I could give it back to you....

hugs....

Susan, in the words of Dr Evil "Uh, how bout nooo?" lol I always tell myself I'm ready to put up a pic and then cringe at the thing the whole time it's up. Until i get a fairly decent pic or face transplants are readily available and covered by my health insurance i'm not posting any(unless i can put up a childhood pic before my face morphed).


Thanks Karilea

Tomato Update:  Two tomatoes should be perfect for eating tomorrow.  I'd planned on enjoying them early (they're best before the sun has heated them up), but seeing as how it's the hour it is, might be afternoon...  
I'll keep ya posted.

I'm suddenly worried that Duncan might be in danger of starving to death.



Congratulations Dunc, and I read that you don't like 'em hot from the sun. Funny, I always preferred 'em that way. They're more like ketchup when they're warm like that.

and yay PICS! I could hear the accompanying giggles as I looked at that one Kari!

and grumble...my house is a mess! Ya'll tend to the garden for me today? I'm declaring a war on dust today, starting with this screen



and you know I'll be around...

and I swear I'll get that e mail...um, soon. *snort*

Mornin' Karen -- whistle while ya work, 'kay?!  Right.

Sunshine -- say cheese?  Nice photo -- cute children!

Duncan - there is nothing like a tomato you've grown yourself....or....in our case, we had a wild tomato vine this summer....with many little marble tomatoes on it; actually they're still coming, just a few at a time.  And, they are yummy.  I think they must have sprung up there because that's close to wear many birds roost. hehehe... bird doodoo, you know.  We've also got a wild bird pepper bush (which is eatable pepper --the hottest in the world!), and several small wild plum trees -- nature....ain't it great!  Green Tomatos is the place to be ....lalalalalal....waiting to hear the story.

Susan & Martie, Hi, ya!

Hey Duncan! My hubby's cherry tomato plant is heavy with it's bounty. He eats them right off of the vine, but I need mine refrigerated. I would much rather have what my father used to call the big "beefsteak" tomatoes. Mmmmmmm....now they made great sandwiches...cool with Miracle Whip slathered on and lots of pepper....sprinkle of salt. Especially good on a hot summer's evening with a glass of iced tea. Mmmmmm.
     Hugs Ya'll .... have a great day!
