A girl from a beach town very far from Timbuktu. I love my jumpy English-cream dog-ish creature and the words flowing from my fingertips when inspired. A romantic by heart I love to read a good book or fly to a country across the seas.

Home

FREE WRITING

Home is where your heart is
That is what they say
In picture books
And novels
But your heart is in your chest
At least mine is
So where is home?
Your family 
Or your dog
School
Or that abandoned house down the road?

How do you know?
How can you tell what home is?
Or at least what yours is
Is it the smell of chocolate chip cookies
Wafting through rooms upon rooms
Is it the smell of pine...

From 0 to 9, to Death

PROMPT: 0-9

0 seconds to my ultimate doom 0 seconds until the world falls out of orbit and into the sea that is this galaxy

1 last person standing here over the carnage the 1 last living, breathing thing that is me

2 eyes looking around 2 eyes emptying seas of tears over the bodies of her dead loved ones

3 fingers left on my left hand 3 fingers that keep my from falling down the ravine around me holding my life...

Everything in a Second

FREE WRITING

Powdered sugar on cinnamon sticks 
Or frozen water on dying branches

All a matter of perspective
That is what people tell me 
That the way you look at it changes it
Even though I have never believed that
I will still stand and listen to it if it helps you 
If it helps you forgive yourself for standing beside me instead of beside me
But saying that millions of people have died
Doesn't make losing him easier

Nothing makes never...

The Beginning of An End

FREE WRITING


We need it to breathe
To survive and thrive
Without it we would not hear the sounds of the world
A newborn’s cry of life
An old woman’s voice of wisdom
Or the whizzing bullet just before it embeds itself in a deer’s side
It lets dogs’ barks and howls travel through it
Joined by the twittering of finches and swallows
It carries the sound of a dolphin’s call
And the splash of them diving back into the vast ocean’s...

Why did You say Goodbye?

FREE WRITING

My heart used to skip a beat
Like the rocks that jumped from your hand in over the waves
But now we are done
Forever stuck in the cycle that is my memories of you
Your smile 
The way it brought my world joy 
Your eyes
The twinkle in them when you saw me
Your arms 
Around me keeping me safe from the world that was trying to hunt me down
Your heart and mine 
Entwined for what I thought...

Just for Now

FREE WRITING

Take my hand
Right here 
Right now 
I can't wait any longer 
I need you but I won't beg you
I wish so many things
But I won't let you break me 
Your smile makes me glow
Your voice makes me want to laugh out loud 
So let me live in my bubble
Hoping that you care for me as I do for you
At least just for now
I'm not asking for forever 
I am not that niave 
But...

Everywhere and Nowhere

FREE WRITING

We all leave tracks somewhere at some point in history
Wet paws in the black sand of Hawaii
Stiletto imprints in the lawn
From a wedding years ago
Or tennis shoes in the damp mud
Sprinkled with the rain falling from the cedars above the winding trail
Your tracks join hundreds of others all around the world
From people from everywhere and your friends' from across the street

The World in Lilac

PROMPT: Poetry and Spoken Word Competition 2019

Purples
From grapes
To rotting cherries
A color that is everywhere
From the sky above the setting sun
To the bruise on the peach you bit into this morning
the smell of lilacs and lavender blossoms fill the air
They take you on a journey
Around the world in 80 seconds
Until you meet up with sun falling into ocean
Gone until it swings around again when it's time to wake us all
But by the time it does you...

Forever Above

FREE WRITING

Above me is the universe 
Below me are the clouds 
And the tops of the himalayas
Below is the earth and the sea
And everything 
Every living creature that swims in this planet's oceans and lakes
And everything that grows and walks on its surface
Around me there are century-old sequoias
Reaching through the clouds and into the stars
I can hear the pitter patter of rain 
Through the canopy of trees
And I can see a volcano erupt in...
