La Chaîne Tour

The ballerina rises off her feet to stand en pointé. Sparkles from her white costume shimmering  From the bright lights focused on her. She elongates her arms into the air, bending her small wrists And the tips of her delicate fingers lightly touch each other.  She glances at the crowd, looking for him  Even though she knows he is not there. The long legs of this ballerina are...Read On

17 years

Maybe gone yet your warmth remains....

As I remember with tears running down my face, how seventeen years ago today, you lost your fight. You lost your battle with cancer, and slipped peacefully away to a better place. Although it was filled with so much sadness for us, we were happy for you to be out of pain. You always lived your life for others  Trying to help them as much as possible. To people you met you...Read On

Thoughts

Take a skulk through my head.

Thoughts, random and ephemeral, stomp through my head. Some are taken note of, some allowed to float off. Ideas happen daily, some acted upon, most tossed aside. Kitten saunters through, always a pleasant thought. Kitty loves her. Is in love. Projects planned, seeds planted. A bass guitar body, you say? How much? Fifty quid? Mine! I'll take those pups, too. Now I just need a...Read On

The Master Guardian

The prologue to a new novel I'm writing. Enjoy!

Prologue For millenia, the human world had no knowledge of the portals and the other worlds that they led to. Dimensions so vast in their differing realities that a balance had to be put into place to ensure that the darker being of each world wouldn’t try to escape and take over the other planes. Elven races would have been lost; their customs and legends overthrown by Dark Angels...Read On

Intoxicating

Sunrise portrait painted by my muse.

Striated banding brews patch work stripes; not a devil's work of art kissing heavens hues, but brush strokes and swipes; an appealing palette a la carte. Pinks, reds, greys and blues; another new day strikes, spawning a fresh start painted by my muse, removing darkened spikes. Her canvas always warms my heart....Read On

White and Proud

I can be proud to be white and not be a racist at the same time.

I’m white and I’m proud Does that make me a racist Or some kind of sadist? I’m of European descent And I favor my ancestors Vikings and warriors hell-bent I am one of fair skin And proud to be so Europe is full of my kin I’m adapted to the cold Like Africans to the sun And I follow the Gods of old To say I’m proud to be white Does not augment my race Or fill...Read On

Life Sentence

What lurks behind the bricked up wall in E-Wing? There's only one way to find out.

“What’s in cell 119?” Albertson looked up at me for the first time since I’d sat down. I’d been building up the courage to ask about 119 for ten minutes, but his expression made me wish I’d kept my mouth shut. He leaned across the desk, examining me closely. I felt suddenly nervous, was I about to be fired before my probation period was even up? “What did you say James?” “It’s just, I...Read On

Learning the Hard Way

I replied, No thanks, been there, done that and got the T-shirt

Looking back over my life of all the accomplishments and the failures, I wonder what I could have done, if anything, to better my life. Most likely not, as I feel life is what it is, so don't worry about things you can't change. Of course, my greatest accomplishments were my two sons and my marriage of almost 54 years to my husband Mike. I must say along the way there have been...Read On

A Thousand Broken Wings

The dust begins to settle, Once again I see clear, History keeps repeating, And a waste of another year, Addiction needs a pacifier, Its grip is unrelenting, I'm sorry for what I have become, A monster that's repenting, So please pass me some give a damn, Mine was sold somewhere behind, I'll soon trade you some "I'm clean and sober", My life will be redefined, I just...Read On

Harness The Wind

The woman I love is like the wind. She calls me smoke because I give her substance.

Mysterious, powerful, relaxing, adjectives describing the wind. It’s everywhere and nowhere. So perplexing! It’s will, no man dare rescind. It refreshes more than sun or seas when it chooses to wear its outer breeze. Just as quickly it dons its wrapping glove, enveloping all with winds of love. It has neither shape nor substance true. But when it chooses to blow on you, ...Read On
