And now there is a 100

There was none,A sorrowful place,Then there was one,Slowly appearing the grace,Then came more,Slowly entering in,They joint in the core,They were all kin,Then slowly they became a lot,A happy little corner,There were then loads and loads,And soon came so many,A hundred and one. Thank you guys! 101 followers! I’m in shock! Happy shock😂So I thought about […]

And now there is a 100

Radium Glow

A few weeks ago, I decided to bring a vintage Ingersoll mechanical alarm clock out of storage and place it on display in my bedroom. It has a large, dark blue Bakelite case and a chrome plated bell that completely covers the back. The dial, with its old-fashioned numbers font and simple swords handset, are […]

Close

I hold you close,As the cold slowly fades away,Into motionless fallacies,That Me and you commit,Sometimes knowingly,Sometimes unwillingly,We stare into each other’s eyes,The Sun sets and The Moon rises,As seasons change and the earth gravels into sand,I come close to you,You even closer……

Maps and Booby-Traps

Note: I’m re-submitting this due to editing and added material. Forward I learned to heed life messages serving in the military and applying them to daily life. It could happen that sometimes it may take an old soldier of a long-ago war, now forgotten to get a point across. Sometimes. If we, Christ’s church is […]

Hoodwinked

I. For someone else’s yellows, I barter my usual blues, My head has no trouble falling For this subtle subterfuge. II. I sleep my way out Of my problems, But my poor problems Never get to sleep. III. If what you chase Starts to run Towards you For a change, Would you then Run into […]

A to Z of Windows – R is for Riga in Latvia

I know that with the lowest average wage it is officially the poorest country in the EU, and for that reason tens of thousands of Latvians have left for England where they can earn as much in a week as they earn in a month back home but this place was lively and vibrant, the […]

WRITTEN IN STONE

“An enchanting moon” #poem #poetry #writing

An enchanting moon of salmon pink Whose enigmatic countenance swathed in a gauze of wispy cloud Graced the skies with the anguished beauty of a sorrowful mien  As it shivered in the foothills of a mountainous winter sky forsaken by the departed sunset spectacular  And began to ascend the celestial wallwith majestic splendour  by a retinue of diamond white stars escorted‘Gainst a backdrop of nightendowed […]

Two Become

Fold myself into youLift me to your lipsPress me to your tongueSwallow me whole Two become one I gasp and I shiverSkin tinglingYour words brush my earSlip inside Absorb every atomMore than you or IImpart fragmentsRushed whispers We coalesceEnds and beginningsHeart tremblingSomehow togetherWe tara caribou | ©2022

All That Matters

Image found here on Pinterest I spent many months in confusion then through the fog I saw your face I’d never felt love like that before so you’re all I’m chasing now During my blind foolishness I sought solace in other things in the warmth that others provide and the strength they can offer me But this pure love is […]

The entanglements and many worlds of Schrödinger’s cat

I recently had a conversation with someone, spurred by the last post, that led to yet another description of the Everett many-worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics, which I think is worth putting in a post. It approaches the interpretation from a different angle than I’ve used before. As mentioned last time, the central mystery of […]

Day 3310: Funny feelings

I’ve got a funny feeling that my images today are about “funny,” “feelings,” or both. I’ve got a funny feeling that if you click on that screen shot to get free or discounted pies, it’s not going to work. Here’s the link to do that if you have feelings about pies: https://nationaldaycalendar.com/national-pie-day-january-23/ I have a […]

Poem: National Thesaurus Day

I wake up to the dulcet chanting of birds and quivering of tree branches. The Sun hidden under rip-roaring clouds. I go to the terrace singing ‘Here comes the Sun’ and leave rice for the birds to feed on. Then I go to my desk, a poem already stowed in my mind. I try to […]
