March Pi-Archimedes #12

fear ~ love ~ fear

there is enough
to keep us all
behind locked doors and walls
there is enough love too, but fear is stronger


The Pi-Archimedes verse is:
○ a hexastich, a poem in 6 lines.
○ measured by the number of words in each line 3-1-4-1-5-9 to match the numerical sequence of the first six digits of Pi.
○ unrhymed.

December Dodoitsu #31

with a kiss we bid adieu
to another year, now spent,
pour the bubbly, raise your flutes,
sing for auld lang syne


And it’s a wrap! 2018 is ticking to a close (thank goodness!) and this month’s exploration of the poetry form called a Dodoitsu. I’m also thanking goodness for that too. It’s an ok form as forms go, but I think I’ve written enough dodoitsus to last a lifetime! Well, 31 to be exact. Like I said! 🤪)

Wishing you and those you love a bright and happy new year filled with peace, happiness, good health and prosperity. 2019…ready or not, here we come! 😊

Sunday’s Week in ReVerse – 30 December 2018

2018 is creeping to an end. I don’t know about you, but I will be happy to watch the ball drop on what has been a challenging year (I’m being kind). In a few days we will have a clean slate. And, well, we have a lot of work to do. But it’s nothing a little love and kindness can’t handle. All we need to do is remember to be kind and to believe in who we know we can be, together.

I have personally witnessed what love can do. As some of you may know, we rescued an abandoned mama dog, barely a puppy herself who was tossed away like trash with her three puppies. Gabrielle, Gabby, we call her. She has come such a long way in a few short months.

This is Gabby when we adopted her on the left and a snapshot from a few days ago. Transformed by love!

Yes, I know what Love can do. And our world needs it so very badly right now. The best part is that each one of us can play a part in our collective recovery. Remember to be kind. Love will do the rest. Peace, love, and kindness to you in 2019!

Sunday’s Week in ReVerse – 30 December 2018

peace on earth, go tell
hope, glad tidings, joy abound
magic in the air
could it be?
identity’s not a what
what need have I for flowers
I wake up each day; I’m living, breathing
that bliss may be found
you don’t have to say a word
justice may come with the stroke of a pen
when they’re not looking, we live


A ReVerse poem is a summary poem with a single line lifted from each entry of a collection of work over a particular timeframe and re-penned in chronological order as a new poem. Unlike a collaborative poem, the ReVerse features the words of one writer, providing a glimpse into their thoughts over time. I use it as a review of the previous week.

December Dodoitsu #29

to feel butterfly flutters
breathless, while catching a glimpse
when they’re not looking, we live
for moments like this


December Dodoitsu #28

Counting the Ways

clearing my windshield at dawn
coffee for two, fixing things,
you don’t have to say a word
or three, I hear you
