In Vino Veritas

Leaving Avignon, a sad “adieu,” Province would, all too soon, become a dream, Settling in ‘en train’, content; we knew we’d long recall these fleeting scenes. Through filmy windows, suddenly all green, My photo lens embraced the verdant pastures, Lime and Kelly shades, like jellybeans…

Flowering

Mari-golden girls, Plummy pods top violet vines, Technicolor turf.

Liberty Pole

Passion carved in wood, Rising rage, our nation’s birth, Masses’ voices heard. yeahwrite.me/moonshine/

Weekly Photo Challenge: Perspective

The gallery showcased above, includes two ‘takes’ on the “Weekly Photo Challenge” prompt. A beautifully symmetrical knitted stitch pattern, while satisfying and calming in a way that only complex patterns, colors and textures can be, the un-cropped photo reveals an entirely different kind of…

Inscrutable Visage (Photo Friday: Calm)

Peaceful, placid place, Stoic, stolid face, Bespeaks of ages past and days to come. This overwintering rest, Puts fibers on my breast That serve me well, then serve a greater purpose. Soft and fluffy fleece, Knowing brings me peace, My swaddling gift for babes…

An Engineer’s Journal (January 2012): Retirement Reflections Reconsidered

Seagull Perspective It was January, 2012.  When I look at this photograph I am transported back to that beautiful Santa Barbara beachfront resort, where we spent our pre-retirement weekend, replaying the events and conversations from the previous few days. I had given notice of…

It was nearly eight degrees, that sunny afternoon in upstate New York. Though we were well-mittened, wrapped in wraps and protected from head to toe, there was no denying that it was COLD! We carefully traversed the picturesque bridge and were taking in the…

Thoughts From The Bench

This poem was inspired by a walk in the woods at Buttermilk Falls Inn, when I came upon this long-forgotten bench. I began to think about what stories this ‘object’ might tell, could it speak. How many lovers, hand in hand, approached and stayed…

Happy Hippie-hugging Halloween!

Today is October 31, 2013. Today, I: …met a Ninja! …talked football with the Manning brothers! …kissed a witch and hugged a butterfly!. …bumped into several Minecraft characters and a few zombies! …gawked at a bloody-faced ghoul, who followed a line of brides, princesses…

Only a Game

I was home on that fateful night in April, 1989. My teenage daughter had given up on trying to stay awake to watch the championship game, broadcast “Live” from Seattle; so armed with my Pirate gear, a huge bowl of popcorn and a bottle…

Extra-Terrestrials

She came in with a flurry, arms wrapped around a large, open box. It’s seems that she’d been the recipient of a weekly box of farm produce, heaped graciously on her by a friend who was out of town for the week. Our, otherwise…
