Weekly Photo Challenge: Symmetry II


I think this is down Lexington Ave in Manhattan. I continue to promise myself to ‘title’ my photos at the time of photography or shortly thereafter, but I never do.



In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Symmetry.”




Of all her siblings, she was the one who

Looked most like her father; the spitting

image as a matter of fact. Which was odd

because she felt the least favored.

Her earliest memory was fearing him.

She must wade further into this before

the end of time.




Homeless Kids


Normal on the surface

And that’s where it stops

At school days end back to the shelter

Friends can’t come over

And there’s no sleep over

Cause we’re living far from normal

That’s what mom said

No place to stay no place to play

Since grandpa went to heaven

It has been this way

Without a room of our own

We moved to a shelter

‘Cause this was the only way

Missed curfew no bed for the night

Riding the train is now our plight

Danny ’cause he’s little cried all night

Mom planned it so we would get to school

On time for breakfast ’cause

There was not much dinner last night



Mother’s Day


Thought I would take this opportunity to share the above with you, as I am still in an acrostic state of mind from the A to Z Challenge.

No. This one is not mine it was posted in the office of the placed where I had my mammogram done yesterday. With Mother’s Day in the wings it might not be a bad idea to honor matriarchs as well as those blessed with wisdom, sisters, daughters and aunts to take the time to have a mammogram. In the spirit of keeping on top of things. This is what she does for everyone else, now its her turn.



A to Z Challenge Acrostic Poem: SALSA

A to Z Challenge



S is for SALSA

Definition:  a fast Latin American Dance with influence from several  Latin Cultures


S. Saturated in the rhythms of the night

A. Annabella  was lost in its sensuality her body moved of its own accord

L. Last time she was here they had shared a connection

S.  She danced  all inhibitions thrown

A.  As he watched her across the floor he was drawn to her he moved toward her their eyes met she felt it too he was distracted by his buddy Jake when he regained focus she was gone
