Tick Tock/ A Collaboration

The following poem is written as a collaborative effort with Fiona at fionasown.blogspot.com based on the steampunk image above. Image is from Tumblr; credit Fiodicinque.

I retreat inside the coffee mug, Hidden behind ear buds Buried in my own Kundera. How can I become so light in being When this moment feels so heavy? I […]

Moondogs and Diamond Dust

“Sometimes it is the smallest of suggestions that completes a poem,” Gecko said as he nodded to mouse. Not quite a collaboration, but better for Mouse’s reading and suggestions.
