No Snow Angels

muddy_footprints_zps66e3cb50

Deep in the empty pine forest
of the valley of the Chattahoochee
well below the Mason Dixon

no
snow flurries
snow flakes
fall.

Rather,
the crystal droplets
beginning high in the clouds
warm upon descent
and end in puddles.

No
snow angels –
only muddy treads
mark my
journey on this planet.

TMI

A world overburdened with information
Embellished, fake – even false
To empower self with our own reality
Is the challenge

Early Onset

walking

Walking along
She remembers
A report
She read
Sometime

In the past

Walking slowly
As reported
Can mean the
Onset of the absence of mind

Looking ahead
She speeds up her transportation
Almost skipping
Wanting no one to consider
She only sees the past in her mind

It’s Showtime!

curtain

Worry
Steals the bright light
that resides within

Dim the gray veil,
Open the brocade curtain,
Deliver your spontaneous lines of life

Bo

IMG_7865

Recently released from incarceration,
men, some still boys, gather
at the Safe House
to keep warm,
sip hot coffee,
talk and listen freely, or just
rest peacefully.

Neil provides opportunities to
improve.

12-steps

Most cannot break the cycle
of their lives.

Reading
Writing
Arithmetic

Many are too far removed from
the classroom.

Bo comes once a week
bringing canvases, acrylics, and brushes.

None are too far removed
in this house, now a home,
where the art is.

So Much in Love

lava-lamp-facts-photo-8

A single lava lamp
sends thousands of
sparkles dancing around the
tired off-white walls
splashing colorful primary-color dots
on cast aside
velvet bell-bottoms
threadbare tie-dye
polyester un-mentionables
while the lovers’ passions
erupt with
lava-like rhythm
pulsing with the sounds
of Carter-Lewis and the Southerners
