Long Fingers

Long fingers reaching into the dirt
sifting through the rocks
seeing amazing colors given by nature

Wonder and confusion takes her by the hand
and walks her further into the woods.
a beautiful, painful spirit

Madness divine like fire
questions her one basic need
lacking nothing but reality

The leaves fall off the trees
catch on the air and drift
on a journey until they find

Fingers reach out gripping cracked life
what is to be is not known
whose figure stands by her

Whose hand does she grasp
She looks up and suddenly- gasps!

Daily Coffee Cup

I chose a different coffee mug today-
like walking on the crooked path
or even going astray.
I hope Daily Coffee Cup will forgive me
for now my day is like a new realm
or even another century.
For time never stops although breathing does
but what that has to do with java
I know not.
It’s true! I chose a different cup today
and now I am  blind and cannot see-for the coffee leaked right through me.

Innocent Child ll

Sometimes, when the far, sliver moon is high
I look down from heaven and give a soft sigh

What could have been beautiful…never was
What should have been precious…was stolen.

With little hands clasped and eyes squeezed tight
I crawl up and sit in the lap of  Jesus Christ.

My name is Innocent Child II and my Maker is God
I know this because Jesus and I have talks

I was sent down to earth but not for too long
I heard His voice call me back with concern.

My tiny body was wracked and there was such pain
He called me home again and my spirit was in vain.

It was her choice, though, and the timing was wrong
Now, nightmares are all she dreams, nightmares of me.


Innocent Child 1

Sometimes, when the far, sliver moon is high
I kneel down by my bed and give a soft sigh

With little hands clasped and eyes squeezed tight
I begin to draw close to my savior, Jesus Christ.

My name is innocent child and my maker is God
I thank Him I’ve come this far~

Before I was sent I was in a great place…
peace, love and joy I saw as I looked in His face.

He loves me so much before I’m on earth
He cradles me in His arms and tells me I’m adored.

He says I’m one of the blessed ones cuz my mommy wants me
even though daddy will take off one day.

Times would be hard and money would be tight
But Jesus sends angels to help in the night.


The cursor is blinking on a blank page
Pressuring me to perform like actors on a stage
Once you get in front of me what will you create?
Everyone watching and you must entertain!

Screw that. I don’t write to please you.
I write! It comes naturally like grass on the dew.
Poetry muse? What the hell is that? 
This poem  is short but at least I’m  not fat.

An award, you say..?

I was also nominated!

Yours truly...


So, I really hadn’t a clue that this sort of thing even existed, but I think it is pretty awesome.
I was nominated for the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award by Prayers and Promises (thank you very much, by the way). I guess this means that people not only read my posts, but that they actually kind of don’t hate them.


There are also rules to accepting this award (naturally), and they are as follows:

  • I must provide a link and give thanks to the blogger who nominated me (done!)
  • I must answer 10 questions
  • I must nominate 10 other blogs that I enjoy reading
  • I must provide links to said blogs and inform the authors that I am nominating them
  • I must include the award logo in my post (BOOM!)

Lady Lemonade

Lady Lemonade gives what she has
She sits in the parking lot passing out Life
Lady Lemonade appropriates all she can
Life and a smile, Life and a smile on wheels
But people walk by as if she wasn’t there.

No logic involved no mathematical clues
To lead and guide her way through
Just knowledge of what is real-what matters?
“What you say and what you do”
A tape recording in her head doesn’t stop
Though she’s invisible she knows the truth.

Tap, tap, tapping the motion in her head
Continuous drum, drum, drumming on fiery led
She gives what she has to other people who pass
A moment in time slipping away into dread
Will they listen? Will they hear what she said?
Ha! No more acting fucking nice all the time.

She screams out loud as people walk by
Her mouth is open wide but nothing emerges
Holding onto the silver wheels spinning, fly!
What is this life I’m so stuck in this chair
She pulls out her hair and pulls some more
The clumps in her hand come out grey.

Lady Lemonade gives what she can
Life and a smile, Life and a smile on wheels.
