The quiet of Christmas morning,
everyone is still asleep as the sun
comes through the front windows

where the traveling bonsai trees,
Fica and Camellia, cast their shadows
on the table under the windows.

The smell of fresh coffee brewing
made special this morning, having
mixed in mocha with the Pike Place.

Later, the dogs enter the kitchen
having concluded their mistress
isn’t getting up to let them out.

Checking the Weather Channel App
having added towns where
family and friends live

from coast to coast,
Kate in the Northeast
and Lisa in the Northwest

are experiencing
the white Christmas
others can only dream.

A Little Bit Of the Gulf Coast In The Desert   Leave a comment

The azaleas in spring,
Are a beautiful thing.
Shades of purple, red and white,
Oh, what a glorious sight.

— from “Azaleas In the Spring,” by J.B. LeBuert

Having lived over 25 years in the Houston, Texas area one of the things we miss are azaleas blooming in the spring time. Here in the desert, our little plant began to bloom a month ago.

Water Over The Dam   Leave a comment

he stands by the shore

watching water

flow over the dam

from the little creek

now a lake

soon to be

a creek again —

a journey to ponder

. . . is it just water over the dam?

But the most dangerous thing in the world  
is to run the risk of waking up one morning
and realizing suddenly that all this time
you’ve been living without really and truly living
and by then it’s too late. When you wake up
to that kind of realization,
it’s too late for wishes and regrets.
It’s even too late to dream.

Southern Magnolia Blossoms and My Whitman Muse   Leave a comment

Southern Magnolia Blossoms 2015 05 02_0441_edited-2 blogSouthern Magnolia Blossom, Kingwood, Texas — Image by kenne

The hot hazy sun
A southern magnolia
And bourbon whisky

I surrender now
As luring blossoms open
Breast cleavage softness

Afternoon delight
Gives rise to my Whitman muse

Literary trysts
