Silence is not always golden

Confab With Me

Atrocities are often fueled by the silence we chose over speaking our mind

Love demand payment…


 Love demand payment…

The gentle lover whispered. Remember me and I will remember you. We are creatures of delight. Need torrent nights and warm morning kisses.

She begin to shave my face. Her soft hands roaming with fingers and shaving cream upon my face. She leaned her body against me. I feel her body near and the soft movements of razor again bare skin of my face. She whispered love near is love dear. I want to be in control and you relaxing and at my will. I like to have your face clean and clear of facial hair. I want us to be hopeful lovers and you to recede completely into my hands. I allowed the silence to bind us and I fell into her gentle touch.

I knew never to love in haste. Love demand payment. The ambrosia of love is to create longing and allow the fruit…

What activity instantly calms you?

It Walking and meditating calms me the most. But if the time is not right for walking, playing a game on my phone does it too.

What’s the most spontaneous thing you’ve done lately?

Last Saturday I went and got my hair treated to a keratin treatment. It makes them super flat for a few weeks and then they look nice. The reason for this sudden decision was that I couldn’t take their supper curly plus frizzy condition anymore. So I took a plunge to splurged on them. Now I don’t have to do anything to them. It’s wash and go.

If people receive a purple heart for bravery, what would other color hearts represent? (Example yellow heart = cowardice)

Access – A Poem By Ali Grimshaw

flashlight batteries - Ali Grimshaw

a poem is a door
opening backward
or sliding sideways
for full human viewing

a poem invites Awe's cousin
Curiosity, to join you for a seat
on a soft metaphor
then reminds you to lean back

a poem offers scaffolding 
for fear, for wonder
for whatever arrives next
with structure and airflow 
so nothing gets too stagnant

including you 
and passing light
through a green passageway

The Joy Of The Mellow

I pass no judgement,
(and yet, of course, I do)
details are never important,
though to be curious is never
to be shamed, rather, celebrated,
as points of departure from the
sameness of repetitions,
as for grief, while aware, I'm
incuriously embracing the mellow.

Roth Poetry

Fruit of the vine of a different kind

Encased in green and white rind

Thick cartilage pulp protects the sweetness

Cut through the rind for a sea of sweet goodness

Red pulp encasing seeds of life

Black and white they live without strife

Spit the seeds and savor the pulp

Melts in your mouth with each big gulp

Juices running down both sides of your mouth

Savoring the goodness // it’s summer in the South

For our d’Verse prompt, Kim asked us to write a poem about a fruit, both before and after it is cut. I decided to call watermelon a fruit, full of sweet goodness.

*Botanically Speaking. Any botanist worth his salt will tell you that watermelons are fruit, and believe it or not, they actually are placed in the “berry” subset of fruit.
