His touch electrified her.
The ghostly current of
awakened souls ripped
stars right from her sky
with a force from beyond
the distant heavens.

Never Letting Go

August 25, 2014


~Gwen & Peter~

I just finished watching The Amazing Spider-Man 2. It was really good! I never got to see it in the theater and in my opinion, it is the best one. I was intrigued by the continuous connection and disconnection of Peter (Spider-Man) and Gwen and how they never let go of their need to connect. The best quote foreshadows Gwen’s death, but the very same words also give Peter (Spider-Man) the light of hope…her light.

“It’s easy to feel hopeful on a beautiful day like today, but there will be dark days ahead of us too. There will be days where you feel all alone, and that’s when hope is needed most. No matter how buried it gets, or how lost you feel, you must promise me that you will hold on to hope. Keep it alive. We have to be greater than what we suffer. My wish for you is to become hope; people need that. And even if we fail, what better way is there to live? As we look around here today, at all of the people who helped make us who we are, I know it feels like we’re saying goodbye, but we will carry a piece of each other into everything that we do next, to remind us of who we are, and of who we’re meant to be.”

Why must it be a *struggle*
to reach this solid mirage?
Chained by dreams of distant
things and roughly bound in
iron forged by sultry hands.

Love: Impossible Transmutation

August 18, 2014


This evening I read a lovely piece by the ever deep S.C. Hickman. Hickman posted A Short History of Love on his site Dark Ecologies. I commented on his poem and it got me thinking as Hickman and I exchanged comments on his post about describing and defining feelings with words. It seems impossible to do, but writers try. Love… What is it? Is it something? Is it nothing? How do we begin to understand those things which are not always concrete? I told Hickman that I don’t always understand what I feel. Sadly…

In A Room with a View, by E.M. Forster, Mr. Emerson tells Lucy “you can transmute love, ignore it, muddle it, but you can never pull it out of you.” Why can’t we just pull it out? Maybe some can? Those who can, likely never loved to begin with. It is easy for them. The 1908 romantic novel by the English writer explored allusion and symbolism in his critique of society in the 20th century. As a writer, I have to adore Forster’s theme of light versus dark and those who are blind versus those who see. But…how do we see? Is it with the eyes?

Is it what we see from inside of us and what we don’t see at all that defines love? Love is everything and nothing at all. If we could transmute, muddle, ignore, or pull out what’s inside, we could better define love. We could take what we pull out and look at it closely…with our eyes. We could grasp love and hold it tight. Maybe we could keep love? Oh…Mr. Emerson…you were so wrong. Transmutation is impossible. If I could alter things, translate and transcribe them, now that would be a rare metamorphosis.

Oh…Hickman…you are so right. Defining love is “the most difficult art of all” and not one of us will likely “plumb the depths…” as you have said. Thank you for inspiring me to think. Not everyone likes a thinker. I guess it is easier to *try* and “transmute love…” Like Mr. Emerson said…you can “ignore it, muddle it, but you can never pull it out of you.” That is the only truth I can honor through my poetic, artistic, and psychological exploration of the illusive, heart wrenching four-letter word.

The Dark Horse

August 13, 2014


Her mind raced
with the power
of a thousand
stallions through
sand and heat
to get to one.
Words were not
hers. Another
would face the
dark horse.

The composite was made to symbolize a Virgo woman
