The beach hears my confession. Twice a day, my sins are washed away.



Just got in from work and saw your comment on the syll shortage. I think this comes down as an accent problem. I'm so used to saying 'hee-ahs,' I counted two beats to my 'hears.' You know, I still think it's right? Am I stoopid? ha ha

If that's the way you say it, that's the way you say it and therefore it works . . . apologies. Not something I'd have picked up on myself.

Breaking news, words on a screen with meaning, leaving more than news broken.
She sobs for sentiments left unsaid, too late to send a goodnight kiss.
Reptilian in appearance, tears streak, obsidian on pale cheeks.
Jaw clenched, stone-hard, mascara-stained trails track regret.
Yesterday, now a lifetime away, passed . . . into tender memory.

Two deaths on both sides of the world. One a Skipper. The other a child.

Pile of feathers, wing prints in snow tell the story of the hawk strike.

Famous as Jesus, after the published thesis, and rich as Croesus.

Yellow first, orange second, then comes green. Lose your feet and you are gone.

Ah, but it refers to ju-jitsu. I've got green. And lost the use of my feet.
