Dreams & Delusions…


Missing Piece

168379de4dd5567e12702e9aa408605aI think maybe
I’m a jigsaw puzzle
With a missing piece…
I think maybe
I left it with you
Or, maybe you stole it…
I think maybe
I’ll never find another
That will fit, that’s why…
I don’t try.


I was nominated for the “three quotes in three days challenge” by Patience over at Love Letters to a Ghost, which is a huge honor, since I am amazed by her work!  Go check her stuff out, you won’t be disappointed.  🙂


Peace, Please…


Show me your thoughts,

The words that hide

In the silence behind

Those fortress eyes…

If you let them drift,

I will, too…

Anything to have that

Peace with you.


-This is the fifth, and final day in the “Five Photos, Five Stories” challenge.  It’s been fun.  🙂

Gold Flame


Beauty of Summer

Mother Nature herself sighs-

Sunsets in gold flame.


-Day four of the “Five Photos, Five Stories” challenge.

This is my “Gold Flame” honeysuckle.  🙂

Sweet Honey


The day always seems longer

When I am thinking of you,

The passion and hunger

Keep bleeding through

No matter what I do…

I need some release,

A way to be free,

To enjoy something for me…

I need something sweet

To melt in this heat…


How about some raw honey

In a cup of green tea?

Would you like to

Enjoy it with me?



-Day three of the “Five Photos, Five Stories” challenge.

Blushing Rose


Do you see me,
Blushing for only you…
Trying so hard,
I know you notice.
I want you to know me,
To stop and smell me…
Breathe me in.

I know I have thorns,
But I am conscious of them.
Pay me some attention,
I promise I’ll try
Not to dig in
Too hard,
If I leave marks,
Please consider
Them souvenirs…


-Day two of the “Five Photos, Five Stories” challenge.


The “Weed”




You don’t want me to grow here?

Fuck off.  I do what I want.

I don’t need to please you.


My vulnerability is beautiful-

In a world like concrete,

Bright violet against the grey.

But, you always smile when I stay-

I wonder if it could be any other way…


Lisa from Underground Energy has nominated me to participate in the Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge: “Post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or a short paragraph and each day nominate another blogger for the challenge”.

I’m not going to nominate only 5 people, instead, I offer all of my readers an invitation to this challenge.  I have a lot of fun with these challenges, they are a great way to expand your thinking and write in a different direction.  🙂
