    Stopping To Think While My Dog Gets Irritated

    This little ambiguity just flopped out of my head and onto the floor...unfortunately, I picked it up and now I'm inflicting it on you poor, unsuspecting folks. Let me also add, with the deepest apologies to my favorite poet of all time: Dear Robert, I may borrow your rhyme and...

    Limbo exists Only because we allow Nothing

    between The pages of life Except breadth and tallow There lies limbo Searching … Searching … For a way of life That fits inside a triangle Instead of being square Limbo wants to fit No matter the shape Of your soul

    Roses...

    Roses are red. Violets are blue. Why the hell does this damn mosquito keep buzzing around my head? I need a drink. Let's all go out and play frisbee.

    I took a creative writing class in college.

    I can't remember now if I took it because I thought it would be a "bunny" class or if it was required for my Early Childhood Education degree. Doesn't matter really. It turned out to be very significant. The professor looked like a biker gnome: short, stocky, long white hair...

    I looked up the sky and felt a sense of calmness

    Give me this moment to call my own and proclaim

    freedom to my eyes to touch and hear and see and feel without fear of fate or compromise give me this moment to call my own to give and take to appreciate or ignore this moment alone is all I ask and then one moment more.

    My Thoughts On Love.

    Sometimes When it feels Like Love It really Isn't. It may be Caring. It may Just be an Illusion. Delusion. I think It's only Real When it is Shared. Decided. It's not an Emotion. It is a choice. There is no Falling Fireworks You choose It .... Or not. :)

    The beauty of a gray sky embraces my soul,

    The clouds are beautiful to me, The rain that comes from the sky refreshes me, It is rain and the cool cloudy days that fill me up, They comfort and soothe me, Cloudy days give me pause to reflect, The gray dark days give me solace, The gray sky is my friend.
