(glimpse of author’s hall)

I must be

Eclectic type

From meals I cook

“Distressed” decor

To whom I favor

Inside my door

This 3-room haven

Is part museum

A chapel, library



I enjoy various genres

Books, movies

And write all moods…

Sound like

I’m eclectic type?

Bird, Holes In Wings

Written for dVerse poets and Grace’s challenge to use the “loop” poetry form.  Of the multiple variations of the form, I chose the simplest—click the link above to learn more about “loop”, and join in.♄

Bird has holes in wings

Wings which never fly

Fly beyond her perch

Perch where she stays safe

Safe from things unseen

Unseen enemies

Enemies within

Within tender heart

Heart that yet flies free

Wrap Me In Dream (Quadrille)

My quadrille for the d’Verse challenge, in which the prompt word is WRAP.

Wrap me in sultry palms swaying

I’ll wear hibiscus lei…nothing more

You’ll be salt-tang breeze

Coming off waves, scent

Echoing sun on sand, heat

Of Somewhere-Fire’s embers


Wrap me in dream that doesn’t end

With your refusal to open door

To me—
