intentional fallacy

instead of
playing soccer versus palm trees,
romping like baby turtles over white-washed sand,
get wet  in “love me ocean” arms

instead of
drinking your azure blue treasures
and drowning splish-splash in your boyish smile

life hit me
like an avalanche
one-fifty miles per hour
oxygenated suffocation
before we crash


haven’t linked up with Galen’s friday flash 55 for a while – but today i managed to say it in 55 words… 

>black socks

of a working week,
piled on
the bedroom floor
like artwork,
a tower of sweat,

profit or loss
& raw mornings,
scratching dark sky
growing moonwards

& somedays i dream
i’d buy the world
black wool
off-thread &

i unbalance my soul

& walk barefoot
for the rest of my days

give it a try and say it in 55 words.. i’m linking up with galen for 
g-man’s friday flash 55



your neck
got ya

(& how does love sound)

high pitched
hard riffed

with you
& us

filled up

(& what makes us move stressed)


(getting real – getting on)

all ways
with you
and us
drag me


a music prompt in 55 words..
i’m linking up with Galen for  g-man’s friday flash 55  and with
the One Stop Poetry music prompt – join us, write a poem inspired by the breath-taking guitar piece “Always with me, Always with you” by Joe Satriani

>a grass green moment


i need a rest,

a grass green moment
in a purple dress

a heart to beat against mine
da – dumm – da – dumm

a veil of pollen spread on my eyes
and lightblue tunes
singing soft songs

breathing against my breast 
netting my lips with moist
morning dew,  e r u p t i n g

when our tongues start to dance

yeah – try and say it in 55 words.. i’m linking up with galen for g-man’s friday flash 55

>tonight we dance,
dance the year

like firework
like moonwalker
like emulsion

neglect where we come from,
forget where we go

hang on to the stars with
odd smiles; silent orbits
washing down,

rubbing eternity with
skinned elbows, emptying

all our pockets
to be filled, filled again
once we land or choose, drifting

                      in space..

Wishing you all a fantastic start into 2011!

>island blues

>what I’d take to this lonely island..? guess
my alto sax 4 bluesy moments, the Book of

him, who keeps my feet from stumbling (the
roots, you know…), 2 or 3 of the old poets who

survived more than just their life & maybe some
duct tape 4 fixing my shattered heart before

- buried beneath sandcastles -

                                    i may find wings

>dragon-flight into my heart, pinpoint landing on a

platform, built of black coffee & wet rain. what
you leave when you leave is much more than

charcoal-dusted smells of blazing fires, consuming

treasures, i didn’t know about, getting lost beneath
piled sugar cubes of hopes & dreams.

today i shout crystal-frost into silence & breathe

>ice dancing with my muse

>spinning, dancing, gliding,
heading north to touch the pole,
aurora borealis luring, stepping
on the edge.
and how i wanted her, so fallen
into fragments, diffused
in northern lights, encircled in
my snow storm; crystalline and
deeply longing, kissing me with
blood red lips

& what was left of me,

fell to the ground

in syllables

>out of balance

>(out of balance)

i saw you lurching down
the road, unsteadily steady
your weight back – up – aargh!
and forth – oh no – and.. yes
i envied you balance the
imbalance, bereft of poise, and yet
withstanding gravity‘s forces, lurking
for your downfall – a matter
of (what) time. left? wishing
i had some of your equilibrium.

>you reach my shore

>your waves reach
my shore and
the endless
murmuring tides
of open waters
outpour into
a starlit nightsky. flooding
the edge of eternity, breathing
and bridging my disconnection
into unity. what
is lost,
my lostness
(and who could count the stars?)
in the space before
smiles; our wheels spin right
beside the moon
