Red Heart Blue

Skidded down skeleton-truths Down down down, until I crashed myself Upside-down On a pile of farewell smiles… That eggshell youth… I won’t go higher Or faster without my red balloons I know, not here on this floating feeling… The rocket fuel for flying, that childhood lightening struck my blue-red heart struck my red heart blue… Again, again and at the same time… The future handles push my ankles through, every lost feeling too… The energy, that energy can never disappear, […]

A Stream of Consciousness from a Little Mouse, Long Ago…

I was a dressed up mouse In our dad-made treehouse As if all I could do was pout… Hands on my hips, tongue sticking out of my lips… They forgot to tell me to come down for dinner. So I listened to the beetles call and became a singer I gave my favorite doll leaf-water tea and leftover mudcakes we were so happy. Up here my rabbits could not escape through broken down fences… no habits to run to or […]

Winter’s Back

Cannonballing Winter’s back with my eyes and my pen; fighting myself back.. In the desert sand I stand with my return of wind and lifting chin… Holing prescriptions empty-fisted and forever unfilled and I’ll let go… turning torpedoes into wishes.

Her Movable Bridge: A Tall Tale of Truth

Her Movable Bridge, a Tall Tale of Truth. Reflecting on personal growth as spring arrives. The following is a tall tale of truth to help with this task. She bounced into the car—the passenger’s side- to downtown destination to meet up with friends.  Some were long term friends and few that she would be meeting for the first time.  She felt the brand new night’s invigorating energy.  Yes!  She had banked enough “recharged” hours in her introvert energy account, so […]

Anyway

For all I’ve ever wanted… For all I’ve ever given… For everything I’ve received… For everthing I’ve thought… and failed to believe… And for every word I’ve said… And for every song I’ve heard… And to all that I have made… and all that fell my way… It all would have happened… would have happened anyway.

Absence of Indifference

    During the past few months, I have been heavily considering the tendency I have to numb myself.  It is a coping mechanism and there are many ways to numb.  For me, it’s like there is an internal off switch. It’s  been available to me since since childhood, and I still sometimes flip the switch when things get rough.  I turn off all my lights and just shut down.  My eyes are open, and I am moving, and I […]

The Dark Became Home

Of facts and fairytales… in chapters of suns and moons, memories of un-borrowable beauty ride the low and falling highs. A being more vivid and more blue than before The Rain arrived. The Dark became home… cooling the day-ending rays that bleed for Night in colors all Her own… The Dark became home.   About the Artist: Natalie resides in Peoria, Arizona, with her husband, two children, and two dogs. Her artistic journey has taken many twists and turns but […]

unnumb

Grown outside the mind Love will do just fine My heart will skid and forgive My eyes open under their lids For I’m not sinking or sleeping But I am laughing and weeping In blue-yellow shades of time Love will do just fine
