Remembering... with love

It is time... A year ago, my dad went into the hospital for heart surgeries. There were complications, and the day after Father's Day, the life support was shut down, and he was allowed to go. He was 85. For most of the 55 years I knew him, we did not play well together. The decision was my own, to... Sign in to see full entry.

Both epyllion and ... that other thing...

the one about taking a piece of art to the poetic place... The painting was a modern thing with broad swaths of dark reds and falling wings... A figure, losing the heavens... Maybe someone else recalls such a thing by artist and title? Icarus in the Sky Icarus, Icarus, foolish lad! It's the worst... Sign in to see full entry.

Poetry on a classical theme...

some time back I had occasion to research the Gorgon, Medusa--was amazed and inspired by what I found! MEDUSA O maid, you once were lovely, full of grace, and named for Wisdom in eternal female form-- Metis, Maat, Medha the names you bore... But the passing generations, reshaping and restructuring...

There was a cobalt blue octopus in this dream...

but it didn't find its way into the poem. The part that did, though, really did come from a dream so vivid I had to write it out as soon as I woke up. THE WRECK OF THE FAERY GALLEON A sailor stands on a quiet deck in the still of a peaceful night-- He suddenly sees, like a cobweb-dream, a galleon of... Sign in to see full entry.

Remember the Sidebar!

I haven't paid much attention to the sidebar in quite a long time, and realized a little time back that my People list didn't even begin to reflect the folk I read here. So I have been updating it. It is not complete yet by any means. There is no sense at all to the order in which names appear on... Sign in to see full entry.

Movies Day With Charlie!

When he is home from school for a couple of weeks, Charlie and I have started a new tradition: going to the movies we've been wanting to see. All of them. On the same day. Yesterday we started with KungFu Panda for breakfast. Cute and funny, not a disappointment at all. For lunch, we messed with the... Sign in to see full entry.

post extraction poetry

I've been reading Teddy's and Troosha's and a haiku that comes from Naut... Let's see... there have been some bits roaming about my brain for a while, maybe they are ready to go walkies... Running through the hills The moon rises sev'ral times In a single night. Air is full of green... Pink petals... Sign in to see full entry.

Well, that was almost fun...

almost sorry that was my last wisdom tooth... They piped in sodium pentathol--knew that was the plan, so I told my husband to prepare a list of questions if he wanted to... But he didn't bother: It isn't like I have ever held much back... Troosha, your comment in the previous post is on the money...... Sign in to see full entry.
