(The tree bark gleamed)

The tree bark gleamed
with fresh raindrops as
the squirrel scurried home.

Happy National Coffee Day!

A haiku for the occasion:

the smell of a coffeehouse:
one of the things I fell
in love with in college

(First day of autumn)

First day of autumn:
Reading on the porch with a
roast in the Crock-Pot.

Summer Simplicity

As summer begins to
close her eyes in
exchange for fall's
awakening, I want
to remember these
days; what it feels
like to slip into
sandals, and hop into
the car without a
jacket and drive to
meet some friends
with Tennessee's green
hills in front of me and
the sun on my back.

(Tonight, I saw an old, white Corolla)

Tonight, I saw an old, white Corolla
like the one you had when we were
in love and in the closet.

East Side Storytellin' 62 recap, podcast now online

The East Side Storytellin' 62 recap and podcast are now available online!  Although I highly recommend that you take the time to listen to gifted singer/songwriter Lauren Farrah's set, you can hear my poetry set at the very beginning of the podcast, as well as a brief Q&A with Lauren, host Chuck Beard, and myself at the very end of it.  Artists unite!
