Upon a pedestal that word belongs
If not felt strong, then my heart speaks wrong

Love’s fine letters
O slants off
This museum frame
Rare honor embossed

Deepest blush of lacquer red
See through to the sky
What shall last
Past our death

Care for a reading?

The above poem was my entry for the Thursday Poetry Rally. Many thanks to the esteemed Jingle for all the tireless coordinating she does.

About the awards:
These last couple of months I have been thinking to myself, “Self, I wish I could buy a new car.” Well, not only did I get one. Count ’em. 1…2…3… shiny new automobiles! Awesome. I always knew blogging would pay off… Seriously though, these peer awards are bestowed based upon votes in the categories of Short Stories, Art/Painting, and Humor—which is perfect because I tend to think of myself as a writer, artist, and occasionally funny.

Thank you for reading my work. I love blogging. Appreciate all who visit, comment, and encourage. That being said, my nominee for this rally is a tie between Moondustwriter and slpmartin. I decided this based on the fact that they have both been taking successful artistic risks in their respective writings. Check out their work. Congrats to them both!

Mistaking Beauty (for week 12 Poets’ Rally)

Human beings make horrendous mistakes
Though maybe one in time becomes
Something beautifully suggestive
Impossible to be redone

As a result of last week’s rally, I wish to acknowledge The Happy Poet award and pass this one to Megz! Besides inspiring me to use the salutation “cheerios” when commenting on each others work, her use of language is amazing!  While I can’t help but be influenced by everyone I read and comment on;  when I read Megz work I think wow! this individual’s creativity with words is off the chart! In addition to the above award, I am also passing my Cross Cultures Poetry Award to her, which I feel is the award best exemplifying the spirit of the poetic blogging community.

Thank you, Jingle
Thanks Megz!
Update to the above post:
My Perfect Poet award nomination is slpmartin!
I think he’s a great poet and an insightful individual.

A Cerebral Heart to Share

Cerebral Heart Inspiration Award:
I had to do this. Here it is…  Ta-da!
My attempt to create a blog award.
In my opinion, the nature of blogging and the community it inspires is inclusive, and thus encouraging.  My intention for this award is that it begin with ten individuals, to then be passed to others.


Accept this and please share it. However you do / is up to you

I would like to present the first cerebral hearts to kseverny, beth, shakira, doraz, Jingle, Martin, Megz, Leslie Moon, Leslie Paints, and William.
