Concrete can not stop

The smallest sprout, given time

Barefoot in the grass


Light Beguiles

haiku: Light beguiles

Light is beguiling

A candle on darkest night

Life and hope defined

Movie Haiku – WDBWP Monday poetry prompt

Haiku: Matrix


Another genius prompt from the folks at We Drink Because We’re Poets: One of your favorite books or movies in haiku form (anyone else remember four word movie reviews? It is still going at!)


Dream within a dream
Electric reality
Matrix of belief



Haiku: cup


Today’s weather reminds me of this from over a year ago. The cool, rainy day feels soooo nice after the unexpectedly hot hot-ness yesterday. . . it’s a long time until autumn, but today is just fine anyway



Autumn rain arrives

Inspiration always comes

A cup slowly fills


Spring and Summer

May and June are shaping up to be pretty crazy. I have GOT to strike a better balance between family, writing, and blogging. Here is my best solution for the moment…

 Spring and Summer 2014

  • Blog posts will be weekends and Wednesdays, with Modern Oracle and getting priority, but I hope to have time to do a few haiku, and try some of “We Drink Because We’re Poets” excellent weekly prompts (luv those !)
  • E-mail Tarot readings are still 24/7, no appointment needed and get priority over in-person appointments.
  • “Gift Exchange” special for email readings has been extended to the end of June…a reading is my gift to you, but if it helps you, I hope you’ll consider sending a gift to via

Muse Named Capricious

A Muse Named Capricious


Inspired by poetry prompt #12 on


Life and the living
Image and experience
The peach tree blossoms

Emotion in ink
Seeing expressed through a pen
Heart drawn on paper
