Stormku Or Polar Vortex Poetry

nom de bomb
snow hurricane


a bodacious blizzard
in Dixie


polar front at Stop And Shop —
chips and dips sold out


sushi meets snow
in Brooklyn


a polar vortex name
grows in Brooklyn


weather front matchup:
Bombogenesis vs Blizzard


bombshell meets blizzard


a tad bit staid
for a storm name

Loop Sluice Stir

With a slight toss of her head, she loops the moon into a scarf and sluices into the bitter night…”

I wrote this awhile back in my film noir heroine fantasy period.

Today, with a shiver down my to my backbone, I looped a woolen scarf inside my down parka, covered my head with the hood and rumbled into the bitter wind at the farmers’ market.

So much for sensual drama.


Mercury goes direct
I stir the soup
in clockwise circles


June and the Strawberry Moon (revisited)

Lightning bugs are out and about! This is a reblog in honor of the  solstice, full moon and lightning bugs/fireflies that keep the sun’s light pulsing throughout the short but dark nights.



thunder drums
the earth
returns the call
red roses issue
bullfrogs echo
rivers storm
however brief
that passion
eddies back
a plea from
the full strawberry moon
and her wild
goddess energy
pay attention
to these gifts
