spicy passion: daily prompt


the first Dawn of Winter

begged to enter the kitchen window

confused by the seduction of miles’

stella by Starlight

the scent of coffee and the swaying of hips

we two-stepped on stray sunbeams striping the floor

cutting board full of chopped onions


mushrooms and other jewels from the Harvest

garden that later sizzled in the skillet for folded omelets

patatas fritas picantes

sharing soothing slices of naranjas

betwixt each other’s teeth

leading to lingering kisses

t’was the first Dawn of Winter

Cee Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Flowers

ImageI was particularly sad on this day until I saw these miniature calla lilies on sale.—It is so easy to make myself happy.

my prized “possession”-the daily prompt


encompassed not owned

free flowing as if rays of sunshine

kissed the horizon for Heaven and Earth to blush

dimmed rainbows sulk in sadness glowing energy

warming souls to revive their belief again

trust once more

Love always.

would not trade it for trinkets

give it away for gold

sell it for satisfaction

my Soul is mine but my Spirit

Spring stroll


sidewalks shaded with the shoeprints of lovers

seem to entwine like fingers within hands held

there a two-step under falling blossoms

spins and dips stir sweet scents and smiles

leadito secret paths down dandelion dotted hills

goose bumps less caused by evening chills

more from butterflies swarming around

heart chakras and the Stars in their eyes

don’t sit under the apple tree

with anyone else but me…anyone

Changing Cells-The Daily Post (Flash Fiction)

His grip was too tight, but she kept her head held high. Even though she knew the outcome, she would not shed tears. It was going to be more claustrophobic than the last time. Meals and showers monitored. If she got one hour of freedom, it was because she was exceptionally good. She heard the keys jingle as her door was locked. She had one shred of solace left, and he had no idea. The cell phone delivered by UPS overnight and she only needed it once. “Fuck him” she muttered as she finally dialed 911. It’s over.

Summer Spirit-It’s My Party


In case you didn’t know, I am speaking into existence a home on the beach.

My porch will wrap around the house providing a deck area off of the kitchen which has a gorgeous view of the beach. One would only have to walk down a few wooden steps that led to a wooden path. At the end of this path, would be a beautifully crafted bar. I haven’t decided what material it would be made of but it will have wind chimes attached to the roof. There will be a myriad of fruity alcoholic beverages along with the brown liquor for the more masculine guests.

Women will be wearing loose fitting summer attire in an array of colors to represent balance of the Universe. Men, if they should choose, will wear either cream or beige linen outfits since it will more than likely be balmy outside even with the Sea breeze. Shoes, eh, optional since we will be traveling back and forth from sand to porch. If you must wear shoes, flip flops will be just fine. There will be reggae and/or jazz heard from the surround sound speakers on the porch. We will be dancing, swaying, and giggling as our food is being prepared. Hopefully, I will be a full blown pescetarian by then, so there will be a myriad of grilled seafood, vegetable and fruit trays along with a varieties of fondue for dipping delicacies.

Did I mention beside the bar is a hot tub/jacuzzi?  Feel free to take your beverages and relax a while.

As the sun sets, a fire will be built not too far from the water’s edge where will can continue to eat, dance, drink, or dry off after a swim. For those who wish to stay the night, the large mediation room on the bottom floor of my home, is complete with pillows, blankets, and even a few futons. Feel free to freshen up in the large bathroom off of the meditation room for a good night’s sleep.

In the morning, breakfast will be served along with glasses of juice, cups of coffee or flavored teas.

This party is by invitation only and if it is a success will happen once a Summer.

But why wouldn’t it be a success?

Why Religion is better than Spirituality??-Not THIS AGAIN!!!


***enter usual disclaimers about not meaning to offend anyone here***

I was surfing the web, but I honestly don’t remember what wave I was riding. However, I am almost sure I was coasting somewhere close to meditation techniques. On the side bar of the webpage I saw a link that said (I am paraphrasing):

Why Religion is better than Spirituality

I raised an eyebrow. Okay I am lying, I am not genetically predisposed to raise one eyebrow at a time.

I smirked.

Then clicked on the link.

Again, I briefly skimmed the article until it got to the thesis which basically stated (paraphrasing):

Spiritualists lack the organization to come together to help the community like a local church can.

And I clicked the damn X on the page.

There are a myriad of reasons why I clicked the X, but for brevity sake, I will provide one or two examples:

1-A teenager was excommunicated from her church because it was discovered that she was pregnant. I did not know you could kick anyone out of a baptist church. I thought only catholics did that. But, by all means, feel free to correct me if I am wrong. That was a time in her life that she needed to be Loved and supported the most.

I just…can’t.

2-A co-worker and close friend of mine was living with her children’s father. She was being physically and mentally abused, and the father even threatened that if she left, he would take their children and disappear. She was terrified to call the police or go to a shelter for fear of retaliation before she had a chance to get away. During her free time at work, because she wasn’t able to do research at home, she found an apartment in another state. All she needed was money for a moving trailer and the security deposit. After offering her some money, I suggested that she ask our church for assistance with the rest. I thought for sure they would help out a new member with getting her life together.

I was sickened by the church’s response.

Apparently, my friend did not tithe regularly, and therefore, the church refused to help her.

Wow!!! How Loving!! How Christian!!

What would Jesus say? Better yet, to use a coined phrase (pun intended):

What Would Jesus Do??

After pondering that question, a group of us “unorganized Spiritual folk” took up a collection for her. It was enough for her to make the trip, and move into her apartment. We also were able to get a grocery store card for her and her children.

Furthermore, no matter WHO your higher power is, isn’t the WHOLE point of all his/her/it’s teachings to LOVE one another??

Oh my friend? We didn’t hear from her for a while because she was so afraid of being found., but about six months later, I got an email from her at work. She thanked us profusely and told us they were all safe, and she was even going to school to be a counselor for abused women.

So much for Spiritualists lack of organization.

not ONE thing-(the daily prompt-he’s so fine)


talk about everything

surprisingly agree about much

giggle about nothing


we are no where in particular

butterflies are everywhere

we peek at one another’s

smiles that are caught


cyclical giggle cycle

natural as water

the first kiss his bottom lip

trembled with nervousness

he exhaled deeply

thanked me

followed imaginary arrows

kisses left us in orbit

didn’t end until the night gave in

sun rose

we gazed at each other as if were magic

our bodies clung to each other for respiration



the Peace of our embrace is all the Universe needs to say

without words.
