Teacher by Week

In my attempt to step outside my comfort zone, I decided to explore what it means to be a teacher. In my post, I merely scratch the surface of what’s involved and required of teachers. But it would be impossible to cover everything in a single post. This post also represents my first go at including quotable tweets into my […]

My New Blog

  Hey everyone! I’m excited to let you know that I’ve created a new blog! It required a huge learning curve with a few frustrations along the way, but it’s finally ready to share. I still have a few things to work out of course. As you know, anything worth doing takes time.  My first post is a poem celebrating […]

Towing the Line

He was but a poor islander with little to impress the world – owning little more than his words. A lonely man alone with the stars – Looking over his shoulder in vain as there was nothing to see, save for lost hope and faded dreams towing in their usual two by two. All but a few court jesters left […]

Fine Lines

You define me between your lines that divide my form into its parts. Now pieces to be sorted, stamped, and appraised. The lesser ones summarily dismissed. My soul erased from the page – of no merit before your jaded eyes. Shapeless and without consequence, its worth not so easily summoned. You define me between your lines  to remind my sisters […]

My Interview

I posted this Saturday past about my interview on Trinity Topics. A brand new podcast hosted by my sister, Emily and her friend, Jeff. If you read the post, you may remember that I mentioned my fear of having totally bombed the interview. And while no one will be offering me a job in radio anytime soon, it did turn […]

Cookie Jar

She’s a lady for hire in high end silk – If you can afford her, that is. She’ll laugh at all your jokes, and make you forget you’re payin’. And you’re not gonna care no more cause she’s yours for the night. Josephine’s gonna make it all right. Her latest creation on the floor. But she’s makin’ a living, so […]

A Quick Update

  Hi everyone, and happy weekend! 🙂 I just wanted to share a few thoughts outside of my usual posts.  This morning, I participated in my very first podcast interview about my writing. Sounds great, right. 🙂 Not! I totally bombed it, so now I’m nursing my injured pride back to health. It should be back in full swing by […]

Carla’s Song

Her long slender back turned to the crowd while a single guitar starts to the left. A slow beating reminder of that afternoon as Jimmy’s fingers slide across its silver strings. They been playin’ for nearly five years and sang the same song a thousand times. A favorite among the local patron looking to drink away their troubles. Carla’s voice […]

Restless Waters

The smile upon her lips but a freshly painted mask. Old scars covered in pink ice for the yearly masquerade ball. Her long blue dress dancing in the moonlight as she stands by a lonely window. Looking down at the brightly light city, she orders back the tears. Her date due to arrive, leaving no time for regret’s dark passage. […]

White Horses

Where do people get off thinking they’re better – better than  who is what I wanna know.  I never learned to play the game. So I’ll stand this one out, and move on. My demons playing their own game. They found her sleeping in secret with me chasing my tail – running for the sun. They want her to join […]

My Ada

A raven haired beauty with eyes dark as the clear night sky. And when she laughed, those eyes shone more bright than all the night’s stars. But a young maiden when she came to Fortune – And I already a man, spending my days at sea with hands worn by a fisherman’s toil. Hopeful suitors a-callin’ her beauty. A French […]
