There is someone across the street standing in the glowing snow. The snow glows in reflection of lights above. It glistens and shines from street and house lights...man made lights. The lights of the gods are covered over by a thick film of snow filled clouds. They shall remain until they empty themselves of this current snow fall. I would not see the figure across the street without the lights. Even with reflected Moonlight, unlikely. Only visible from the light of humans. Yet the figure stands there. Quietly, unassuming, not asking to be seen...seen, none the less. Waiting on some imaginary bus that never travels this road. In need of a driver to take him home. The figure wears a human made coat and human made shoes...he waits for a [Read more...]
Dead star light Dead star bright First dead star I see tonight I wish I may I wish I might Know who looked to you before your twilight All of those gorgeous dead stars in the sky. Considering the billions of years it took some of that light to get here, curious how many of them are still burning up there. This is one of those illusions that has proven to me that not all is as it seems. All is simply as it is perceived. Through these perceptions, we assume and claim to know facts that, in retrospect are simply made up fables. The world is flat. The galaxy and sun revolve around the Earth. There are stars in the night sky. On this last point...what is night? Who's sky? Ours, yes, but in some other part of the 'verse it is likely not [Read more...]
"Damn!" Cliff finished his ice cream cone just as he spotted the drips on his red sweater. Licking the tip of his thumb, he brushed at it trying to get it off his large belly. He walked along the path watching the people. Compared to most, he was over dressed. The arm pit sweat stains grew by the second. The splash of water hit the beach just south over his right shoulder. Children giggled as they had their first chance of the spring to play. A brunette in hot red shorts sped past him on roller skates. Her pale skin winked at him from under her white halter top. "Too skinny," Cliff whispered. "That can't be healthy." He saw a shock of red hair over his right shoulder before he felt her run into the back of him. The female scream made [Read more...]
Drifting home tonight as the wind a flurries push me on my way. Sign ahead says Newmarket is ahead, but I'm not convinced that is where I want to go. The Moon is in hiding tonight. Considering how bright it was for Solstice, it probably needs to recharge. Took the dog out a week ago, and it seemed as though she was mimicking the sun. Perhaps it was flirting. She was showing her bright feathers to reinitiate the chase across the sky. It was wonderful feeling her light across my face. Feeling her looking...and I cannot decide if she looks up at us, or down upon us. Either way, we should give her a show to make her smile and grow even brighter in the night sky.
Going to retread over something tonight. I have talked about this on previous blogs...before I *ahem* evolved and found WordPress. Evolution versus Creationism is the age old debate about the big bang or the forbidden fruit...God created Earth and Heaven or some freak cosmic accident. Were these the only two options, I would firmly see evolution as, easily, where we came from. However, I always have seen a third theory as one that could explain the possibility of both. We are not initially from here. I first heard this theory, probably fifteen years ago...and, for me, it potentially explains both the gap evolution cannot yet quite figure out as well as the story of Adam and Eve. Think about it. Caveman runs about, club in hand [Read more...]
I still see her face, beautiful as day... - Sting, The Hounds of Winter "Let's talk about the elephant, shall we?" He sipped from his beer. "Elephant?" Derek was not as large as the tank behind the bar, but he was big. African American with a near buzz cut afro hair. He wore a red tie over his black shirt and slacks, but even the loose shirt could not hide the impressive shoulders and chest underneath. "Cliff, come on. You buy two seats on an airplane. That makes you an expensive date for a woman." Cliff chuckled as he gulped and almost lost a mouthful of beer onto his red sweater. "You have such a way with words." Derek smiled at him as he picked up his beer with one hand and sipped. Glancing at his watch he returned his [Read more...]
"You have any wheat beers?" The question surprised him as she did not look like a beer drinker. He watched the bartender, a tank of a man in a black vest over his white shirt and red tie. The bartender mumbled an answer. "I'll have one." She held up one finger. Her green eyes smiled from under her pageboy red hair. Her pale skin was slightly rouged by her makeup. She wore the infamous "little black dress" over her ample bosom and long black nyloned crossed legs. Stiletto heels adorned her feet with one on the bar's foot rest. The diamond on her finger was almost too noticeable. He watched from his own bar stool, unobserved. He dusted a crumb off his red sweater and glanced down at the burger in front of him. His belly was sore as [Read more...]
"Pancakes!" He looked up at her from his chair. "Pancakes? Sounds good." He closed the newspaper and stood. "How can I help?" He towered over her as he followed her to the counter. He reached up and pulled down two juice glasses. "Um, well..." She looked up into his blue eyes under salt and pepper hair. "Okay, set the table, start with that." She licked her lips as she watched him take the cups back to the table. the hair on his pale bare chest was so light that it seemed non-existent. He scratched his leg through his pajama pants and then returned to find plates and cutlery. He smilled at her as he spoke, "Eggs? Bacon?" She turned away and giggled. "We're not dressed for bacon." He laughed as he looked down at her in her black [Read more...]
