Summer

Summer wasn’t what we were expecting, like many other people all our traveling trips were canceled. We stayed home and played in the yard, took one camping trip on top of a mountain away from people. It might snow tomorrow, so I guess we’re coming to the end of summer here in Montana. I’m not […]

Tea and Death – A poem

I have lived in the shadows Danced in the dark Music only I can hear Shadows in the corner of my eye Whispering songs yet to be sung Running through the fog Lost in the smoke from my breath A rootless soul, a mad angel’s gait Unlock the door and invite death in for tea […]

It’s ok

It’s been hard to focus on anything lately. I haven’t been writing, or reading. I can’t meditate. Haven’t been able to even focus on watching tv. I finished a weaving and started two new ones but haven’t touched them in a few days. I started doing yoga again, before all this lockdown stuff started, but […]

born in the woods

This is purely my imagination, I think.¬† My sister is scheduled for an induction tomorrow. So assuming that baby doesn’t come tonight, she will be heading the hospital in the morning to give birth.

A part

There is a small part missing from the house. It’s just a little piece, it doesn’t really matter that it isn’t there. The house won’t fall down without it. But I notice that it is missing. I notice that it is not there, every time I walk by where it should be. The shadows play […]

Free writing

I took a nap and had strange dreams about people I don’t know and things that don’t exist. I was thinking of a poem the other day. Something about birds and the moon and then I forgot it. He keeps asking me how stars are made. I’m not sure though. I’ve only watched them, I’ve […]

Pumpkins

A little while ago I saw a thing on Pinterest, where they took some of those orange plastic trick-or-treating pumpkins and stacked them together to make like a statue. I thought that was pretty cool, and it gave me kind of an idea to try out. I got some of those orange pumpkins. First I […]

My Box

I could tell you story about the boy who bit me in a dance class. Not really, we were dancing to Thriller and it was a pretend zombie bite. But that, small moment was the start of the changes to my life. There isn’t much story to tell though. We were always in the right […]
