Your Apprenticeship


Most people

won’t realize that

writing is a craft.

You have to take

your apprenticeship in it

like anything else.”


~ Katherine Anne Porter


Elfje:         (Cinquain)



taste good

sweet and sour

food hits the spot





daylight starts to wane

cool mornings herald winter

migrations begin


Poem:   no rhyme today, just a prose rambling


a little bird sitting upon a line
don’t do it, don’t do it,  don’t
he did it
poor  Miguel

he opened his thermos
the soup was cold

he opened his bucket
the bread had mold

he was too close to the mud puddle
when the bus came along

he was one number off
when the lotto was drawn

it was just one of those days
when nothing went right

along came Sofia
for Miguel a perfect sight

isn’t it wonderful how love
makes everything alright


ME and the Boss
