(life as a christmas cactus)


i was thinking about a dream i once had & realized it really

happened: smooth green elevens everywhere dancing to a laughing song

memories masquerading as dreams: my life in crystal darkness but

the moon tells another story: a wonderful obliteration

once upon a time there was a little girl who liked to sit on the

bridge: moon on the water: constellations that create stories to tell

when the moon is full the flowers bloom at night & sing the nocturnal

sun: pink petals peeling away from the bright yellow perimeter

three times three plus two dream divided by dream squared equals a new dream

memory moon stars sun: clouds rain thunder & lightning rolling over

& over again … oh! here is mary queen of scots riding a white

horse through the mists of my mind: she has something important

to tell me: commands in french & scots & latin & then she is gone

but no matter: i am dreaming i am blooming shiny pink petals

Her philosophy about religion and magic is that it must be thoroughly based in science and logic. She is Dianic Wiccan and she is solitary.
