Cornered, I let my arms drop…

Cornered, I let my bare arms drop to my sides. He leans in close with his pasty white, sweaty face. I smell the sickly sweet stench of his rancid breath as he hovers within an inch of my eyebrows. He reaches for my neck, but I crouch down and squeeze past him, my legs scraping […]

Little Streams of Consciousness

I cleared some cobwebs and found my pen. ~ ~ ~ Contrary to public opinion, the hare raises no tail.  She prefers to count on her floppy ears for balance as she sets across the fallen tree spanning the width of the trickling creek.  It’s rained every chance the clouds have had of emptying their […]

Van Gogh Refresher in Amsterdam

A Van Gogh Refresher in Amsterdam This trip to Amsterdam, I couldn’t wait to step inside the azure blue, cobalt blue and old gold within Van Gogh’s world of Irises and Sunflowers.
