Spring Song

Burnt umber ground

and cinnabar brush

crackling icy muddy mush

too-wee the Red Winged Blackbird sings

for her return

an Ode to Spring

Gypsy’s Singin Again

It might have been the weed that night

she was higher than a kite

when Janie said “get on the stage”

she jumped up and obeyed

the house was only half full

she began singing with no fear

and smiling at the man in the back of the house

though he wasn’t very clear

 he sure looks like he’s smilin back from here.

“Sing out Louise!” her mom would cry

that’s the voice she heard inside

that’s the voice with so much pride

it kept her goin all that night

Gypsy’s singin again…

 

 

 

 

 

My Sweet Guitar

Image

I long to play

my sweet guitar

though screaming tendons

won’t allow

or skin that’s split around my nails

I slather cream to no avail

and wonder if that part of me

is only just a memory..

 

Early Morning Dream

 

Image

The woman sitting by my side,

(where we were I do not know)

the dream is slipping fast away.

My coughing would not quit

she reached for me and held me close

her chest released a pulsing warmth

I felt her energy

transfer to me

this angel stranger

healing free

Then in the distance of my mind

I heard the castanets

stirred at once from dreamland

from the sound of whipping eggs

I smiled and went to share

my early morning dream..

 

Save A Life

child_abuse

In the little rural library I work in there is a back room. In this tiny room we have DVD’s and Video Tapes that the patrons can check out. It sparked a memory yesterday,a sick feeling in my gut. I was reminded of the basement of the Woolworth’s store I worked in, when I was a girl of 16 in 1966.
My boss was a swarthy looking man of 28. A married father with two young children and a beautiful wife. He would just appear when I had gone down into the basement to get stock for the makeup counter. It was kept on metal shelves in little brown labeled boxes. It was so hard to find what I needed quickly, although i tried. He would appear around a corner with that smug smile.
The same question that comes to mind, even all these years later, why didn’t I say something, scream something,do something besides let him touch me, kiss me,hold me tightly.
This memory came back in that little room yesterday and I felt as if I was in the basement again. The store’s, my family home’s any basement will do. For someone to put their hands on you.
I am so angry right now because those men affected all the love I ever had to give. For I am so good at shutting off
and burying everything that should or shouldn’t matter,and I know how to kill the pain.
My heart bleeds for all those who have been abused and I pray for all those who will be because abusers are another cancer in our society that has no cure.
If I could I would tell every girl or boy or man or woman that is being abused to speak out, scream out, NO!!
Parents be aware, it could be family, teachers, clergy,Bosses. More often than not it is people you know not strangers. Protect your children.

Camille

I saw you in my dreams last night

your arms held open wide

for hugs you gave so easily

to anyone in need

No average soul would dare replace

that hole that lies within my heart

a sweet Madonna’s face

imbedded in my brain

always the best part

of me

When I’m 64

“will you still need me,will you still feed me,when I’m 64″ The Beatles

tomorrow that song will have a new meaning,lucky for me after all these years I have someone who needs me and feeds me.  Feeds me with comfort, care and love,which is what I need now and probably always have needed. Back when Sgt.Pepper came out, I was relating to “she’s leaving home” because I was 18 and preparing to. Mom and Dad didn’t know about it though, a self centered and depressed child only left a letter, quoting Kahlil Gibran’s poem on Children.I am sorry for that, as a parent now I realize how devastating that must have been for them. A crazy time for many of my generation.That eventful summer of ’68 became the first time I nearly died.  The next time was 10 years later when I was a passenger in a VW that hit another car head- on going at least 60 mph. I don’t remember all those details since I was sleeping and my best friend was driving,(good thing)  I lived to tell the story and have scars to prove it.  

I probably should have died many more times, if it was “my time” since I am a firm believer in fate . Living and working  where alcohol and drugs were very tempting and always available.  Looking back now I realize those chances i took were so foolish.  Was it the death wish i had had since childhood taunting me,or was I tempting fate.

Dear Fate chose that I lived,skirting past my own tragedy.  Surviving,embracing and enjoying life. Tomorrow I will be 64, unless I die in my sleep and fate has the last laugh.  Either way I will be grateful to have lived and in retrospect  can appreciate what at 18 I feared.

Living with Shadows

I'm a woman in my 40's and finally feeling that I know who I am and why I am, I would like to share the shadows from my life. Having got here fairly intact and along the way found the ability to take a step back and see things more clearly it is my hope that perhaps by blogging I may help others through their own dark places.
