Cast Off #poetry #photography

Today I cast off my dreams

leaving them on yesterday’s wake

did I have the perfect form

or was I making a mistake


today I waded deep into sorrow

jigsaw puzzle pieces mismatched

wishing I could ignite the driftwood

you were reality’s dreadful catch


today I danced to a new beat

loosened my hair into the breeze

laughed away yesterday’s tight rope

casting-off from you an ease

Pampas Grass- susuki #haiku #california #photography

pampas grass

 pennant in sea breeze

free to wave away the tide

unaffected by change


 a hat or a blade

we built a fort in your  glade

through cut, we unafraid

Pampas grass grows wild along the California coastline. Plume -like beauty from a distance masks the blade-like sharpness of its leaves.

Pampas Grass is today’s Carpe Diem’s prompt


Hold me …Tight #poetry #photography

you looked down

into celestial colored eyes

like yours

sparks flew

long into the night



you -bigger than life

I so unsure

your hand took mine

each day

a new delight


“Hang on”

you said

“never let go”

I couldn’t

you held me so tight


“Come  fly

with me baby”

you took me

to the stars

what a sight


I look at my hand


by you

sparks still remain

embers of  light


where did you go

without me?

you took

a piece of me

on your lonely flight


one look in my eyes

you and me


for the stars

holding on ~ tight

There is a story behind the location in the pictures (where I learned to swim in the surf, build sand castles and love.) Thanks to Raed Shomali for Pescadero the top pic. Please have a look at his work- he is fantastic photographer. You can also find him on Twitter @shomali11

The sunset was taken, with my iphone,  Half Moon Bay area while I was driving  ( umm yes multitasking).  Location wise they are the same piece of coast line.

Faith & Entropy

Gud skaper noko nytt ved sitt Ord og sin Ande, vi kan ta imot det i tru og få oppleve at han gjer sitt verk med oss. Hans skaparkraft verkar konstuktivt i våre liv og skaper noko som er verdifullt for oss. Naturkreftene verkar nedebrytande, i fylgje entropilova, men Gud er Ånd og det som er født av hans Ande består. Jesu frelsesverk er fullbrakt og fullkome. Han er den siste Adam, som er ifrå himmelen og som for oss har vorte ei livgjevande ånd. Han gjev oss den Heilage Ande frå himmelen av berre nåde. Han gjev oss det evige livet.


Looking ahead, without looking back (too often)


Thanks for following a cowgirl on her crazy life journey.

Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before. - Edgar Allan Poe
