Painting Rocks…and Baby Helmets


More helmets

Sometimes faces are

painted on rocks or helmets

for baby safety

Stunning Camouflage



Each hair sprouts in sun;

sneaks out by night; pokes its prickly

head so soft and straight



Pulitzer pressure

braver tumbler-prancer runner


Christmas Eve


In Act I Scene I of Hamlet, Shakespeare wrote:

“Some say that ever ’gainst that season comes /

Wherein our Saviour’s birth is celebrated, /

This bird of dawning singeth all night long; /

And then, they say, no spirit dare stir abroad, /

The nights are wholesome, then no planets strike, /

No fairy takes, nor witch hath power to charm, /

So hallow’d and so gracious is the time.”

A laughable smile

on scrubbed bristly beard

open to compromise

frames bated breath

for, after all,

love is blind

and all that glitters is not gold…

The Merchant of Venice by William Shakespeare,  gives us the words laughable, scrubbed, and compromise, and the phrases bated breath, love is blind, and all that glitters is not gold.
