Give me a head with hair

The semester is finally coming to the end, only a few more weeks left to go. A couple of projects, papers and then finals. Makes sense then, that this is when the Dragon and I decide to do crazy wacky stuff. My Tattoo’‘’’s are not really that out of the ordinary for me, but the [...]

The Cruelest Month.

Come, Persephone:
The world has rested too long
Under Winter’’s snowy cloak.
Come bring your brushes and bright colors
And dress us in the shades of Spring again.
We invoke you, gracious maiden of freedom and beauty:
Join us now.

Elizabeth Barrette

It seems this invocation bears repeating. Listening to the radio on the way home this morning, I heard that Monday [...]

Just Be, ink

First off, for some reason the permalinks are no longer work for post titles, this is very annoying. It makes me growl and threaten Word Press with the shaking of fist and muttering of imprecations. I am not sure why nor have I spent any serious time trying to figure it out. I’ve been busy. [...]

Fallen off the edge of the world

Or at least that is how it feels. I have been so damn busy, I sometimes forget that I even have a blog to update. So for that intertubes, I am very sorry. Can you ever forgive me?

School is still taking up most of my time, adding the weight of being a tutor in [...]

Cold Poem

By Mary Oliver

Cold now.
Close to the edge. Almost
unbearable. Clouds
bunch up and boil down
from the north of the white bear.
This tree-splitting morning
I dream of his fat tracks,
the lifesaving suet.

I think of summer with its luminous fruit,
blossoms rounding to berries, leaves,
handfuls of grain.

Maybe what cold is, is the time
we measure the love we have always had, secretly,
for [...]

What time is it?

Feels like I have once again fallen off the face of the planet. I’m just overwhelmed currently with all the madness going on. School, work and tutoring take up all my time.

I feel like sometimes the Dragon is being ignored and I hate that. I have been trying to set up times for he and [...]

Whispered Into Afternoon

  
     
      Sun of autumn, thin and shy
And fruit drops off the trees,
Blue silence fills the peace
Of a tardy afternoon’s sky.

Death knells forged of metal,
And a white beast hits the mire.
Brown lasses uncouth choir
Dies in leaves’ drifting prattle.

Brow of God dreams of hues,
Senses madness’ gentle wings.
Round the hill wield in rings
Black decay [...]

Wildlife in the City

Driving home from work yesterday, all the sleepy people heading into their day as mine was ending, I encountered wildlife. I saw a pack of Gazelles, in male form, outfitted in thin sheer running shorts, hooves shod in tight bright colors, promising speed and performance. They darted through the traffic at the stop light, cars [...]

Case of the Stolen Obama Sign

Somebody took the Obama sign out of my yard sometime either last night while I was at work or this morning. I am pissed!

**::Grumbles::**

Heading back to the campaign headquarters to get another sign on Monday!
