Pine hammocks on the horizon. Clouds streaming by. Brown winter grasses blowing in the ocean breeze. An intercom voice counts down. A rocket engine fires. Latches let go. Morpheus rises on a spike of blue flame into the air. It hovers, translates and creeps back down. Orange flame blows sand and smoke and dust and rocks into the […]

I’ll Share My Brush With You

Mon, 20 Jan 2014, 03:52 PM (-06:00)

The sun is out. The sky is blue. The dogs are blissfully tired from their long walk across the field and along the margin of the woods and thru the forest. You are there. I am here with too much time on my hands, I suppose you’ll think. So I send this to you. A […]

3M Half-Marathon

On the way to work in the morning. There was the moon sinking in the west as the sun rose in the east. On the way home that night. There was the moon rising in the east just after the sun went down. Long day.

The Moon’s Fault

Wed, 15 Jan 2014, 11:05 PM (-06:00)

The moon is so over Venus. Having grown from that crescent in the west, she has moved across the heavens, waxing gibbously (Between us, I can say that, can’t I?). She races against the nightly turn of the stars, and time flies as she charts her path. And so now she passes Jupiter, lighting up […]

Crescent Moon

Tue, 14 Jan 2014, 04:42 AM (-06:00)

I want to talk about the moon. It must be nearly full, for as the dogs and I walked around the track tonite, we cast dark moon shadows onto the ground. But that’s not the moon I want to talk about. I want to talk about a thin, crescent moon that sat in the west […]
