I am a part of you
that even when apart
stays complete being
irrevocably tied as
you are my world
and world is in


“Love is the extremely difficult realization that something other than oneself is real.”
– Iris Murdoch
when you love
with whole heart
there is never a holding back
you simply plunge headlong
not worrying about consequences
and the emotion, the act and outcome
become a wonderful memory chain
pleasuring endlessly
the kiss by Klimt – viewing this gorgeous painting was an awesome experience- at the Upper Belvedere, Vienna, Austria


With another storm in the wings
Waiting to tumble out, mind hastily
fumbles for nature’s more benign
profile from recently done journeys
to calm qualms pluming inside out

“Happiness quite unshared can scarcely be called happiness; it has no taste”
— Charlotte Brontë
if by being at peace with myself is happiness
then I am happy with several strung moments
of discordance with significant other just to stir
things up and enjoy the storms in teacup froth
and settle down eventually

These days January 29, 2015

“There are painters who transform the sun to a yellow spot, but there are others who, with the help of their art and their intelligence, transform a yellow spot into sun.” ~Pablo Picasso
in these brrr chilly times
everything brings summer’s
cheery suns to mind

fried eggs sunny sides
up on skillet bring egg
yolk suns to mind

stir frying veggies
is when globs of turmeric
wink at startled eyes

oranges, yellows
colors vermilion
shades of ochre

all crane necks
eyeballing frostbitten
sorry me and scorn

snuggling inside
a down jacket indoors
is not an option

Trussed, fully layered
like a robust onion
I exist to don, peel, don

its well on nigh time
to grab a mile long pole
and tickle sky’s gloom

extract amiable weather
suns and moons and stars
from invisible galaxies
reaper by Van Gogh
