His words caressed my sins
Until they shined like diamonds.

Phantom – Haiku


Thoughts of desire
Disappear without a trace
Lusts scent still lingers


The personal life deeply lived always expands into truths beyond itself – Anais Nin

Everybody knows that the dice are loaded,
Everybody rolls with their fingers crossed,
Everybody knows that the war is over,
Everybody knows that the good guys lost.

Leonard Cohen

A treasured poet, a true music mastermind and genius.
As our country sheds many tears today,
We must now shed one more…Rest in Peace

Pleasure – Haiku


This special Sunday
An extra hour to relax
Smile and savor it

We are here to laugh at the odds and live our lives so well that Death will tremble to take us. – Charles Bukowski

* I start most of my days before the sun comes up, so this extra hour of sleep I get once a year is a treasured experience .  It’s the little things in life that sometimes bring the greatest pleasures. – Lola 🌺
