House Built of Kisses

We live in a house built of kisses, each one bestowed by the Beloved’s lips.   Whether health or sickness, ultra-conservative or flaming liberal, lilting flute or barking dog, toxic swamp or crystalline lake, all are essential to the whole abode that coaxes and pushes us to the inner-most home.   Here we realize we are […]

Dance to the Song Within

A tap on my shoulder signals me to step into the center of a circle of partygoers. This is a dance-off on an autumn Sunday night. A thin, bearded man has also been tagged and now stands in front of me. I start moving in an odd way, what feels like Elaine’s notorious dance on Seinfeld. I’ve never been […]

The True Guide

I thought I knew the way having traveled this path long ago but no…I got lost in cryptic directions­: turn right at the T intersection left at the V.   All became muddled in duality.   Stopping in the middle I scream, “I don’t know where I’m going and I don’t know how to get […]

Monsoon Lovemaking

You smell it on the breeze sweet scent of wet piñon and red dust blowing off an advancing thunderhead.   When the towering anvil arrives it casts bruised shadows, pelts all with frozen rain and thunders into your core.   You call on the Beloved hold steady through the storm. Parched desert softens, convictions evaporate.   […]
