a conversation

“Take the gun.  Better to have it and not need it…”

She shook her head no, as she sharpened her knife and slipped it back into her pocket.  “You know I detest violence, but a girl does have to defend herself.”

“Well, until something drastic happens in this world to change things, it is never safe out there.  Especially alone.  Especially at night. Especially if you are a woman.”

“Exactly right.  I’ll call you when I get there so you can stop worrying.”

“I’ll never stop worrying cause you, my love, were born a girl.”

summer love~haiku

sunshine, salty breeze

siren song beseeching me-

paradise awaits

troubles melt away

scrunching sand under bare feet-

ocean waves hello

beauty surrounds me

swimming into the sunset-

please don’t follow me

everlasting love

 

when poet meets muse

their kisses are poetry;

everlasting love

Mooning

Image by Epic Images from Pixabay

The full moon peeped through partial clouds

desperately trying to get a look at the couple below

wanting to bask in their light as they bask in the moon’s light

for the moon is no fool and she knows true love when she sees it

Holding on to

One dream one

Promise to be

Exempt from despair

windowless room

Though the sky is clear and no storm formations have been reported,

there are potential threats to her well being and sanity. His presence

looms. His words at any time could become projectiles, hurling toward her.

hurricane force winds

rip and tear, emotions surge-

must seek safe shelter

close eyes, protect heart

can’t risk evacuation-

a windowless room

The Edge

always on the edge

of elsewhere

yet i’m ill equipped

for entry

into the ethereal

for it is not enough

to erase evil thoughts

even if they are exoteric

and emulation proves exhausting

which is exactly the point
