    I think of you in darkness,

    Dora's Summer Day.

    Dora swallowed whole, by spoonfuls her horrid bowl of gelatinous oatmeal.  She gave herself a canker sore by poking the roof of her mouth with a dry, blackened piece of toast and further aggravated it by slamming her glass of acidic orange juice...

    Lost and found

    I came out of the milk-house wearing a old coat with strips of bright red material pinned (with big, yellow ducky diaper pins) to the hand-me-down, mismatched buttoned coat.  The red is to protect me from deer hunters should I get out near the big woods...

    Wounds exist that no one can see.

    Deep and more painful than those that bleed. Constant tears behind these eyes, constantly flowing on my insides. There is struggle in this life beyond what you've imagined lays mine. Thoughts in my mind I fear to share. So don't you dare ask what's wrong because it's ALL beyond...

    My red sunset of discourse,

    Hateful, full of unacquainted rage. Pushing past reality, Prying open the pains of my past hate. Showing my deeds to all, Exposed for public enjoyment. My third eye crying blood, Insights lost to the edge of a blade. Try not to languish to long, It is my fault for your love...

    More than a Dance

    Who watched them? Only the birds glanced upon them not knowing what they saw. On the soft morning air music drifted quietly into the peace of their still place. Their place, a spot by his river. Trees stood  like still sentinels, surrounding the lovers. Sunshine, gentle, not...

    I can see some light.

      It is just barely getting bright.  A glimer of hope inside.  In my heart, love always abides.  Life is meant to be a journey.  Too many times I was left yearning.  Wherever my road leads, I have the strength to succeed.

    Writing Is My Stress Relief
