Inspiring Art

She appeared in the doorway as if the wind had blown her onto my blank canvas all at once in full color. Soaked from rain’s song. Shaking her head and laughing wildly. She was unaware of her crackling impact on the still inside air. Surprisingly refreshing like a summer storm. Embracing Nature. Inspiring art.

Not Bitter At All

I am delighted to find
Exactly where my lips
Tasted salty
And you were sweet
To me
Where we laughed
As the sea whipped our hair
And these many months
Have not changed your kindness
Or how much I care

I am thrilled to discover
We are co-creators
Of our fate
On my tongue
The taste of your skin
Is exactly
As I recall
Dark fruit and roots
Chocolate goodness
Not bitter at all

Not bitter at all

Your brilliance snags me

Your brilliance snags me but for only a moment. A passing star on a journey which I cannot abide. Here I stand in awe as you fade from my sight only to ponder the journey that lies ahead for those who catch a glimpse of your path…

Tinker Sailor…

He cruised in on a forty foot sailboat
Sun kissed, salty and sweet
Yet his excitement was hard to hide
For behind his serene smile and sparkly eyes
His heart raced like a Geiger counter inside
A wandering romantic, he never skipped a beat

Author’s Note: Roaming across the map, he landed next to me in a bar in Capitola. Sitting on the stool to his right I could take his pulse without ever touching him. Before now I had never been close enough to experience a mechanical aortic valve ticking… I bet he loses at poker every time!

“You’ll find we offer you much more than just a place to study…”

The brochure read.
“Never woke up in a dorm bed,”
Thought bubble over her head.
“I’ve got to meet for a run,” he said.
It was 22 years since she graduated;
So, she skipped the walk of shame.
Blame it on Rio.

Verbally Fluent

His resumé indicated he was verbally fluent.

Turns out it had nothing to do with his ability to speak multiple languages correctly and well.

But, the rate at which he could seduce me to generate as many words as possible in a given time.

Or better yet, render me speechless.
