A Smudging Ceremony

A Smudging Ceremony   Must be entered with spirit dust, a good heart that sings, prays, and follows ancestral spirits to the realm   where Lunar glow brightens the sky with beams of moonlight guiding the way.   Far below they know. Their hums and their drums create a sacred sound, a required rhythm  …




Prescott Drum Circle

 



Toys Make Noise

Toys Make Noise   Electronic toys have buttons that even a young baby will push to hear music and see flashing lights.   No matter what program put inside his pink and white, plush, rabbit skin. Jack the rabbit wouldn’t begin.   Jack had a bad habit. He wouldn’t sing, play music or flash any…




Fisher Creatures

    We found the dogs in a feeding frenzy, “They probably caught a rabbit,” Jacques said when he saw the bloodstained snow. “I swear I saw a flying saucer land right there,” I pointed to a circle of melted snow, but nothing else was visible Jacques walked close to where the dogs ate and…




Slapped Smartly, I wrote this one back in 2001, but totally forgot about it until I saw it in an old email.

Her body swayed in time with the beat like melodic notes moving up and down…




Never Again

Never Again   That blob of yellow or white that used to float above and brought forth Oxytocin that influenced my ability to bond and even to love has gone through the change of life   It’s been awhile since that orb brightened my day with light. The sky has given up its chameleon like…




Pediatric Ward

                         Pediatric ward   While in orientation today, across the hall from the bedpan station, a whisper said, “Poor girl, she’ll never wed.”   In the room her guardian angel cried before she died. Looking for the voice, I saw a baby that lived…




Ho-Ho-Ho.

Ho-Ho-Ho.   Down and out over the Christmas holidays, the dark winter days and the hunger I felt were enough to cause suicide to take over my thoughts and then my brain.   I searched the house for a painless way to end my life. The medicine chest held drugs and razor blades, but I’ve…
