The Remington

Moments ago, I began writing a new blog post describing a late night scene from around midnight last night---moon high and air still---when I wondered why I go outside so late so often? Many of my posts have started off with something along the lines of, “It was hovering around midnight when…” I thought on …

The chickens were snug in their coop with care, In floofy, puffed feathers blocking raw, winter air. The donkeys were nestled all snug in their shed, While layers of clouds stretched out above head. And …

Choppy Waves

To your tiny face, I stoop down, My thumb pushing that line Of tears. They’re cool on Your warm, tired face, and Glaze the depth of your blue Eyes with heavy glint that hurts.   Come here, unto my chest, my Baby, and feel my beating heart. Every Thump thumps just for you, every Hair, …
