Shattered Mind

I look into the mirror
only to see
an empty frame of broken pieces,
images of me.
A blank reflection of white emptiness
and big hollow letters
of a soundless scream- that
ricochet through the
endless depths of my mind-
till I can't see
and myself, I cannot find...

Ageless Wonder

Old fart, old fart- what could this be-
Another birthday making you 60?
Well, hell- Let’s celebrate!

Roll up your boobs and tuck them away
Slide into that trashy dress
We’ll dance the night away!

On Wednesday afternoons you can
Find her with her crew- A few games
of Sequence and a few of Wahoo!

Stoned on coffee, she’ll drink you
Under the table. Piss her off
She’ll cuss you if she’s able!

Aged to perfection, well over the hill
She can’t run like she used to, BUT-
By gosh- she’s still good for a thrill

For Connie Snowden on her 60th Birthday


The haunting shadows of unwanted thoughts
creep from corner to corner,
playing tricks on the unsuspecting eye-
Making you crazy, Is it real? You wonder...
Taunting, haunting shadows prodding
your reality, so close, it's ghostly fingers
nearly touch your mind...
Large shadows start to tower over you,
making you cower like a frightened child,
then they suddenly disappear.
Was it just your imagination?
Or was it the fear of all unwanted thoughts
shadowing your mind?

This book is absolutely fabulous! It made me laugh and cry it was wonderful reading, I highly recommend Tangerine Sky!
The author touches on every emotion possible. With the turn of every page I ask myself, "how did she know?" From past hurts to the birth of a new child, you remember the feelings and experience a moment of peace that comes from knowing someone else has been there too. An excellent collection of poetry and short works that everyone should read.
I have read Tangerine Sky and I find it inserational, an insite into one thought of sadness, hope, joy, happiness and love. it a good read.
