“Sympathy”

<img src=”http://yeahwrite.me/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/26/gargle163.png”&gt;   I am held in the comfort of your hands, softly, as the small,  broken wings of a bird.

“The Love Affair”

<img src=”http://yeahwrite.me/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/moonshine.png”&gt;   “The Love Affair” This man has had his way, deluded me.

“The Doves”

  (Photo by Jacqueline Casey) This week’s gargleblaster ultimate question: “Why do birds suddenly appear?”   “The Doves” My messengers, two doves, of silent wing did settle just outside my windowsill.

“Hope is a Con Man”

“Hope is a Con Man” Another time; another place might be but only age gives open eyes to see. For,  if we were again but seventeen, we’d stumble, still, as blind to destiny. Oh, fervent Hope, he is the con man’s ruse. He holds our breath and makes our heart beat fast. Yet, all the…
