They tell me
I'm throwing myself
a white whirlpool,
frothing at the mouth with its savagery
and it will grab me and swallow me
before I can do any good
For them,
the fury of the whirlpool
looms large
in their eyes
it thrashes within the public school system,
carrying away student and teacher alike
But I hear a distant
strain of song
a sorrowful, painful melody
brimming from the minds of young people
who are not yet mature adults
and no longer sheltered children
These are my sirens, calling to me
from within the schools
"Teach us!"...
..."Help us!"
Caught up in the whirlpool's ire,
they cry out...
How can I resist?
I am needed, desperately,
and there are young souls
who will only
into this
swirling fatal water
if I do not try to reach out
They tell me
I'm throwing myself
and I ask them
to loosen
my ropes
from the mast

Saturday Afternoon
White light spilling gently in from the tall window,
Casting ribboned patterns across the floor
White light reflecting off the blinds,
Bouncing off the navy coverlet,
Tinging everything in the room lightly with blue
Window lifted above its sill,
Open to the slightest early spring breeze
Tiny airy fingers stirring the papers on the desk
Wafting in the scent of the blossoms just outside
Clearing and refreshing the room, shut up so long against the cold
At the touch of the light, everything regains life
The bedsheets warm to its passing flirtations,
The floor mirrors its movements,
And the sunbeams joyfully dance across the walls
At the breath of air, everything reawakens
What has been so long enclosed,
So long deadened by duty and time,
Now opens its eyes at the touch of invisible, inaudible hands
The clock even ceases to tick in these moments
Its job is done for the week, and now the only sounds
Are the soft winds brushing the blooms and branches of the trees

Hundred-Year Dance
Moon's fingers trail gracefully in the river,
Dipping only slightly into the moving waters
As I drive over the dim bridge
Soft dark enclosing forest
Drapes gentle leaves over the roof of the car
Leaves now nearly black with the coming of the night
Each branch has tiny silver fingernails of moon
Running lovingly up and down its bark
Each ripple in the river carries its little faery of light
Spritely giggles mingle with the water as the current takes its course to the sea
And I know the water molecules are still swaying,
Spotlighted by moonbeams, in a tango of polarity and non-polarity
I know the moonlight captures the trees in their hundred-year dance towards the sky,
Like a camera captures the agile feet of a dancer in mid-step

Schizophrenic NC Winter
It's late December.
The frost has been on the ground for weeks,
Nearly melting during the day,
Then refreezing at night.
Lightly touched by the lukewarm sun by day,
Wrapped in a cruelly cold black blanket at night.
No more flip-flops and sandals,
No more short sleeves flouting the calendar.
For the flowers there is no more hope,
Nothing more to do except to close
And look forward to the spring
When petals can breathe again.
Winter is here, and it won't go away
With the hot breath of a high-pressure wind from the south.
New Year's Eve,
And the dusting of ice-ridden snow makes tree branches look sad.
They stand drooping in the dimness of the winter afternoon.
No merriment and lights for these trees;
Like me, they see no reason for the celebration,
No reason to look into the windows and watch the humans laugh and love
While they are rooted to their places, shivering in the wind.
The moon rises and falls over this sad little scene,
Briefly wishing her light were as warm and comforting as t

So, uh, I'm alive and kickin'!  Yeah!

I couldn't post here for ages because of dialup and then Firefox decided to randomly hate on the journal writing software--wouldn't display it right, wouldn't let me submit anything I'd written.  Anyway, on Google Chrome and hoping for the best.

Going to post a couple of things I've done lately (mostly website designs :D) and then maybe some artwork or poetry later if time permits.  ^_^
