a dream of dreams

This is a poem I wrote nearly a year ago, inspired by a charming and fascinating site called Osseous Design: The Blog .      I happened upon the site one day when surfing, and wrote the date 1-24-17, and name of the Blog at the top of my notebook page.   Tracing back, I was able to find the unique  site, with its creative … Continue reading a dream of dreams

Beginnings, a poem re-blogged from Paul F. Lenzi’s poseypluspolemics

Originally posted on Poesy plus Polemics:
“Pillars of Creation” – Photo by Hubble Telescope Secrets of creation hide deep in conflation Of science with faith, of corpus with wraith, Discrete bits of essence, immune from senescence, That mark each warm creature, or cold lifeless feature, Of all the known world, plus those unknown, thus hurled Through vastness of space, push-pulled in their chase By grave… Continue reading Beginnings, a poem re-blogged from Paul F.

Dreaming imaginary Prague, reposted

Dreaming imaginary Prague  I have never been to Prague, except in daydreams… but my impressionable mind is easily led into the magical world of zithers and Gypsies, of violins singing and wailing in ageless melodies… music of joy and abandon…or sadness and melancholy. Put on your hat, my girl, and come along with me… We will trip the light fantastic (or is it a Fandango?) … Continue reading Dreaming imaginary Prague, reposted

Tile Art

Here are some pictures that just tugged at me to create while walking through my entry.  They are twelve-inch natural stone tiles.   I never noticed the (featured photo) before, but once the face popped out at me…at least three faces in fact…I knew they were perfect for Cee’s Odd Ball Photo challenge.     The eye just seems to adjust for the scene. These shots remind me … Continue reading Tile Art

Dreaming imaginary Prague

(original title: Dreaming imagination) I have never been to Prague, except in daydreams… but my impressionable mind is easily led into the magical world of zithers and Gypsys, of violins singing and wailing in ageless melodies… music of joy and abandon…or sadness and melancholy.

Caves of Memories

Back in my Cave…cave…cave…cave… Safe and sound and daring to breathe.. Here the sounds reverberate from walls, deep inside the endless complex of caverns…. meandering through tunnels  far from reality. Here is where My Life lives, a collection of times, past loves, beautiful memories, painful losses. All of the things I have learned…and forgotten… the songs of my life, the cast of characters once known— both real … Continue reading Caves of Memories

Echo of Chardonnay WORDLE Special Edition “SOUND”

Sounds remain in memory banks to fill a silent void. As the blind hear what they cannot see, the Deafened have memories of sounds in silence echo sonorous nocturnal interludes… a rustle of taffeta nearby… the gurgle of the newly uncorked vessel, with its cheery “pop!” of releasing Chardonnay. Somewhere a whistle escapes a kettle’s steam with a strident “woosh!” a steam engine slows. The … Continue reading Echo of Chardonnay WORDLE Special Edition “SOUND”

Science in Fiction …and vice-versa

Being a real fan of Science Fiction requires a flexible imagination, and have an open mind that is capable of accepting for consideration any concept at all.  Its OK to have compartments, or niches, or organizational charts in which these concepts reside—such as:  Possible, Improbable, Unlikely, Impossible But Intriguing, Far-Fetched, Ridiculous, and Boring. In the first place, anything can apply to classification of Science Fiction.  … Continue reading Science in Fiction …and vice-versa
