Stark Array

Charmed Chaos

Surrounded by petrichor of tranquil rain
as it mingled with fragrance of wet roses
my soul awakens, reminiscing love’s kiss
glistening raindrops cooling hot tears
stars in our eyes falling, falling down
From threatening skies ~
Hearts cloaked in heavy perfume of flowers
at our feet in stark array, drifting pink petals
in our swirling souls, silvery essence of hope
as sensual aromas of luscious peaches linger
amid wistful sighs of our fevered searching lips.

Commiserating – Eugenia

Go Dog Go Café



and share

of yourself

between each breath

 pulsating passions

waiting to be unleashed

renewed hope not limited

 judgment of wishes derring-do

a muted world wallows in silence

the lull of sage advice haunts us once more

A gander at me –

I enjoyed a dedicated career in the insurance industry for over 20 years being rewarded both professionally and personally. Now it’s time for me to follow my dreams by doing things I enjoy…spending time with family, learning, sharing, traveling, writing poetry and encouraging others to pursue their goals.

My writing and creative endeavors can be found at my blogs, BrewNSpew (Coffee-break Scuttlebutt) and PoetryPalette (Poetry, a seasonal state of mind), where I have gathered a following of kindred souls who share my passion for writing.

I am the author of two books, Seasoned Delights, A Haiku Collection; and Mama, me and Mother Nature. I…

Holding You #Poetry #Intimacy #Healing

Poems for Warriors

Holding you
My head in your lap
Your hands on my chest
My arms wrapped around yours
Holding you
New bonds form
Intimacy flows from my heart
Through my body
Into yours
Chains around my heart released
My tongue is loosed
From the ropes that bound it
My feelings
My true self
Awakens to you
Without reservation
All is released and known
Who I am
By you
I am free from the past
The brokenness made whole
Here I am
Holding you

Like A Wave – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon


dVerse Poets – Poetics – Surrealism in Poems

Linda at dVerse has invited us to delve into surrealism.



“An ecstasy is a thing that will not go into words; it feels like music.”  Mark Twain

Like A Wave

The water once gathered from the sky,
heaven’s bold gift
a recess of your mind
your dark iris hears, sees, and
tells a tale of something known
in the very core of that secret place,
turning, writhing, resisting,
as the piper plays
tunes move through you,
a smooth melolagnia,
your hairs stand
rippling, like a wave
as you soak deep
the abiding presence
washing over,
now spent
as night.
