The Frozen Time

  She walks in line with the devil each booted step heavier than the next.   Snippets of truth come to me and spread over my existence like the sun warms the Earth on frozen days. I am supposed to be doing something and yet the something is not defined. The complexity of knowing too … Continue reading

Spoken Word for Dummies

In the age of video, we do video. Encouraged after a lakeside writing retreat at Gun Lake, I made a thing and you can watch it on You Tube.  Wander over here and jack up the noise: https://youtu.be/-fluyEQ6fkY

My Mind, At Half Mast

  I often don’t try to guess the contents of other people’s minds but observing a neighbor’s gigantic farm house addition recently stuck stubbornly to my grey matter. In front of their sprawling modern home on top of naked corn field was a tall flag pole with a Trump 2020 election flag flying high above … Continue reading

The Recluse

I sat outside in anger counting fire flies while the wind wept mosquitoes kindly from my consideration.  My mind was louder than sky and I could feel my merry go round of thoughts pull darkly until it seemed I was sitting outside myself.  The sun, long set, left traces of its goodbye in backlit whispy … Continue reading

The Rising Chorus

  This is not an age of quiet.  Even when the cell phone is silenced from incessant bugging beeps of digital desperation, a television program plays out our distraction on top of the convenience of appliances doing their diligence.  The ever faster train of traffic going nowhere drips the day in their procession down cracked … Continue reading

Can You Hear Me Now?

The Sunburn of Spring

  The anticipation of that first season of the year is strong in the north.  Sick of snow and the death of trees murdered by wind storm, we start by peeling off layers of thick clothes, heavy boots, and book our summer campsites.  There is no retirement party for winter although our ice carving festivals, … Continue reading

Wild Horses, Wild Life

  Wild Horses   Movies portrayed Black Beauty running through meadows without crushing flower, and it seemed everyone wanted one. I had a few original My Little Pony toys, ridiculous multi-colored manes, girl color bodies, and cartoon faces. Our fingers galloped them on carpet mimicking screeching neighs before dumping them for Barbie, a Care Bear, … Continue reading

The Grand Finale of Winter

Photo by: cmesker   The Grand Finale of Winter The trees drip with Spring, flash pale yellow wing of busy goldfinch pining for sun to glow them bright against dead hue of snow hill where sharp beaks peck little seed in bill bursting song dreams. Missy R. Rogers February 20, 2019

The Grand Gendering of Life’s Activites

The satisfaction I felt this morning installing a printer driver on my Linux run laptop flowed through me like a champagne waterfall at a Kardashian wedding.  I had purchased a brand new laser printer just the day before with my own money and had carried the awkward beast to my car by myself, and then … Continue reading
