Alone today, I stand at the sink after coffee and toast. Through residual pushable pain and fringes of greyness, I'm drawn to the bubbling warmth, to the sheeting minor waterfalls, to the movements of my own hands and arms. I don't know it right away, but I am smiling. For I have seen death, and... Continue Reading →
The questions beg an answer….why not ask the Moon? At least she is constant. A bit of reverie from Carol Hopkins
Peeking through the cloud cover
Witnessing life on earth
Earth’s faithful companion
Orbiting through space
Were you there, Sister Moon
When life first formed?
Did you watch as the first creature
Crawled slowly from the sea?
In your ever-lasting cycle,
in your orbit around our world
Did you witness the dinosaurs
As they prowled the hills and plains?
Did your winking face gaze down upon
The planet and can you tell us why
All life on earth was wiped out
As cold air masses froze the land?
Oh, ancient wonder in the sky
What drama have you witnessed
What stories could you tell
Of all the changes
On this, our blue-green planet
That you follow faithfully
Sister Moon, do tell us
Advise us if you can
On how to save the planet
This jewel of blue and green
That humans have made obscene
Garbage in our oceans
Choking off all…

I'm a blue man he says to me, speaking to the ceiling. I pull my chair closer to his bed, cupping his cold hand. His swollen face lolls in my direction, eyes like a slot machine. I'm locked in the freezer. Get the keys! I hang my head, squeezing his hand harder. Why don't you... Continue Reading →
Light, bright white, Radiates into the mirror of the eye. Sound, in myriad, pummels the drum of the ear. (Tautly, as a balloon skin stretched) Whorls in the fingerskin Brush blue velvet, blade of grass, jagged glass, ember's ash. The airs molecular, drawn in so vitally, Invade memory, codifying the now and the forever. Messengers... Continue Reading →
as a freshening teenage boy just shy of sixteen years foisted from a battle-scarred home into this supposed school of highness he is already in retreat from vitriolic violence from love that has gone from hormonal eruptions from the Bullies Three the ostracization of the ostrich he builds his defences hands upon hands upon hands...

Minus twenty two last morning. No wind, praise be. In my puffed up coat, with Red Baron hat and goggles, looking, perhaps, like the Michelin Man, I get smiles and double takes. Walking rapidly to get it over, it is still thirty minutes in the sub zero. But, there are things to see and hear... Continue Reading →
