Feeding Da Boirds {Gargleblaster: Yeah Write}


The scent of guileless fascination settles on the wind,

tantalizing them.

Chiseled beaks chirp and chatter, eager to peck away at the meaty pulp pulsing

inside my chest.

I’ve learned not to starve or shoo them,

they come home to nest anyway.

This week’s question (inspired by The Carpenters)

Why do birds suddenly appear?

(who loves this song as much as I do??)

Thanks for coming by, have a great week!

Without You {Gargleblaster: Yeah Write}

four years

three  months

two weeks

one day

and the clouds have ceased their chase of one another,

while the bullfrogs down on the bayou are struck dumb.

Seems the whole world’s gone silent,

save for the lonesome ticking of my heart.



The Yeah Write

Gargleblaster this week:

Suggested by Erica M, and comes from Alice Munro’s short story A Real Life.

Have all your clocks stopped?

Enter At Your Own Risk {Gargleblaster: Yeah Write}


You might be tempted to ask,

“of all the gin joints in all the world…”

but watch her stir her bourbon with her pointer finger instead.

Resistance is futile after all this time.

A word of warning;

She doesn’t own white hankies.




From Yeah Write’s Gargleblaster: 

This week we’re paying tribute to Gabriel García Márquez, who was (in our humble opinion) one of the greatest writers of the last century. This week’s ultimate question comes to us from One Hundred Years of Solitude:

“Tell me something, old friend: why are you fighting?”

Jog {Gargleblaster: Yeah Write}


(by choice)

It’s the mention here or her name whispered there that stills my breath, reminds me.

All those memories misshapen (by my own hand)

to eradicate her from my

(better now!) life

help until

I close my eyes…

She’s everywhere.

So divine for the hopeless romantics like me. 

(and did you hear? I got Editor’s Pick last week with “Soup’s On!” 

Soup’s On! (Garglebuster:Yeah Write)

I  bet you wonder how I knew

(Oh dearie don’t you fret).

I have all the evidence chopped and cubed…

So I’ll add a pinch here,

a dollop there,

then I’ll stir the pot,

turn up the heat

and watch you stew.
