{creative clutter} A Morning on the Job

Jul 31, 2013 by     No Comments    Posted under: Creative Clutter

Morning on the Job

Rays of sunlight
gently awaken the sleeping vixen
from her den of sensuous slumber.

Slowly opening azure eyes,
she gazes upon the being
that so utterly transported her-

holding her hostage in that
primal realm of desire and lust.

Capturing the moment,
stealthly fragments of sunshine
skitter across the sheets

highlighting the golden hues
of her love’s silken locks.

A whisper of sound
travels harshly
across the room.

A crimson
splash of color
splatters across the wall,

sharp gleaming contrast
against stark white paint.

Tendrils of light illuminate
cold, handsome features
of her torpid bedfellow,

revealing the passionate mouth,
all too eager to tease her
into sweet submission
the night before.

An irritated sigh escapes rosebud lips.
What a waste, she thinks,
silently wiping his blood
from her face and fingers.

– Summer of 2005

Day 3: Thinking of You

Jul 3, 2013 by     No Comments    Posted under: 31 Letters in 31 Days


Day 3 is honor of one of my besties, Paige, who I’ve known since my senior year at Florida State University. She and I worked together at the Office of Undergraduate Studies at FSU, and have been through a lot together since our first chance encounter as student workers.

Despite incidents like the theft of her pants (at the office, no less), social experiments at Olive Garden, my pups tendency to tackle her upon entry, the introduction of bondage pants and corsets into her wardrobe and other shenanigans – she’s been true blue, and I’m not sure what I’d do without her. Today, I wanted to remind her that even though we’re cities apart, she’s often in my thoughts (insert “Awwwww” here – you know you want to).

As an aside, as I was going through photos looking for the ones I wanted to include in this post, I realized that apparently Paige and I use the SAME pose in nearly EVERY photo we have together. Paige – next time I see you (which I hope is soon), we are going to have to mix things up a bit. Deal? ;)


Fun With Poetry Magnets

We have a large assortment of word magnets gracing our refrigerator in the Dalton Underground. Occasionally, I like to take a quick break in the day and discover where the words take me. Sometimes they lead to interesting places. This was my journey today.




Script Frenzy: Day 1 (And so it begins…)

Apr 1, 2010 by     No Comments    Posted under: Courting the Muse

Today is the first day of Script Frenzy, a month-long writing adventures that challenges creatives from all over the country to spit out 100 pages of script in 30 days (or less). However, prep for Script Frenzy (at least for me) has been underway since last week, when I first began the process of trying to figure out just what the heck I would write about.

Typical me got sidetracked a couple of nights this week prepping for our ski trip, putting together a box for my Sean to send over to Afghanistan and working on some artwork for my Script Frenzy journal.
