Angel wings upon her back


  She had Angels wings upon her back……

Her long auburn hair rolled down her long slender back. The tattoos Angel awoke secret dreams and nightmares. Her tattoos rolled down from soft neck to tender calves and feet.

She was a dancer and she was loved and appreciated. She was dancing to Bob Seger song  “Night moves’. Making men wish for hell before accepting heaven.

She befriended me because she saw something different in my eyes. I was writing poetry while she danced and I caught her attention. She liked me because I had nothing to give and nothing left. This made her feel safe. She wanted hollow love and friendship.

She didn’t need money. Her income from dancing was enough. Her perfect toned body moved to Leonard Cohen “A million kisses deep”. Tattoo of a black rose bush  rose from her calves to her back. Men paid deeply to…

Almost love….


 Almost love
(Some short poetry)

                     I remember you…

I remember those eyes. Those dark brown eyes,  so gentle and kind.

You made me believe, there were miracles.

You took my hands and without one word.

We fell in love.

                    Skin and vodka….

You came to me wrapped in the native clothing of Central American.

Just cotton wrap cover breasts and butt,

I remembered your dangerous smile.

Your brown hair moved slowly in the tropical winds and you whispered to me.

You wanted to taste the sea, you wanted us to make love with the stars and the moon above.

Dear Poet. Wishes may come true.

I brought her close and I whispered.

I want this night to last forever. You are perfect.

Halloween Candy by Jerry Seinfeld #Funny #Comedy

Poems for Warriors

This is a classic stand-up comedy bit by Jerry Seinfeld from “I’m Telling You for the Last Time” comedy special (1998).

Jerry Seinfeld recently wrote a book, “Is This Anything?” which is a part-memoir of his life as a comedian and part joke book from five decades as a stand-up comedian. Each section labeled by the decade that the jokes were written in, i.e. 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, 2000s, 2010s has a short autobiographical reflection on that period, what was happening in his life, and his struggles and successes, which is followed by a series of short jokes he wrote and performed in his stand-up act.

I enjoyed the audiobook, read by Jerry, was like listening to a 6+ hour comedy special that had me cracking up for hours!

Fandango’s Flash Fiction Challenge #91

Keep it alive

Welcome to “Fandango’s Flash Fiction Challenge.”

The image below is from Photo Hoteam at Unsplash.For the visually challenged writer, the photo is of a woman with her feet up on her desk watching Netflix on her computer while smoking a cigarette and drinking a whiskey.


Nina took a sip of her drink and tried to find something on Netflix that wouldn’t drive her out of her already bored mind. This working from home was not bad if she actually had some work to do. But with the pandemic, the company she worked for had lost a lot of business and the assignments were few.

Her phone beeped and she saw a message from her best friend. She wanted her to check out a YouTube channel.

Several hours later, the drink and her cigarette forgotten, she was busy setting up…

Daily Prompts- A win is a win

Keep it alive

The dayafter the elections we watched with high spirits

Expecting a landslide victory for the democratic candidate

The results were coming in slowly but steadily

And after almost a week to our delight, we found

That our favorite candidate had won the election, albeit with a small margin

The channels covered the whole event deftly

And the losing candidate had nothing other to say

Other than allegations and a heap of lies

Well if he has the vocabulary of a spoiled brat

And can justify the use of covfefe as a legal word

In response to the following prompts;




Day, After, Spirit





Word of the day challenge;

Touching thankfulness

Didi's Art Design

Thankfulness in my heart
We walk together
Here and beyond
Oh, Lord in my heart

Thankfulness in every pore
Of my spirit and body
Living in the ink
Of your pen, writing my life
Oh Lord in my heart

Thankfulness in my breath
Heartbeat follows your will
Colours my thought
Along sandy streets
Oh Lord in my heart

Thankfulness in my soul
Sunshine in each step
Because you are everywhere
And I – a borrowed lifetime
Oh Lord, Life of my life
