miltary metaphysics

war in the shadows
"military metaphysics"
we do what we want

warped motivations
excuse reprehensible
behaviors and lies

does this have to be?
what elusive innocence
flutters beyond grasp?

Everybody hurts

Inspired by Carry On Tuesday  
"Everybody hurts sometimes"

tear off the bandaid
the pain of truth is less than
endless pain of lies

mystery pinwheel
sparkles at the driveway end
how did you get there?

Splashing in the surf

One last shoreline stroll
our vacation denouement
hate to say goodbye

Splashing in the surf

caressed by salty bubbles
racing up and down

Lacy tourquoise waves

Reaching out to touch my skirt
Hemline baptism

near the waterfront

still silver statue
poised and waiting for my cash
immobile for now

guardian of the river
surveys the rushing water
waits for his buddies

recently tweeted...

let's strengthen the field 
maybe just one more monkey
is all it will take

straight lines become curves
shortcuts disappear for now 
construction begins 

softening ice cream
my warm hands on the carton 
soon it's edible 

muscles awakening 
who would think 2.5 miles
could cause such a fuss 

the fast continues 
30,000+ have joined 
anyone listening?  

hyacinths beckon
bring your face down here and sniff
fall into frangrance  

kitty looks nervous 
attention is pleasant but
please don't fence him in

a small ray of hope 
Bolivia breaks some ground 
by giving earth rights
