My Blue Looks Like This

And my results from this are:


Today you said I’ve come full circle,
Round and round I go.
Munching my own tail.
Please. Give me benefit of spiral instead, movement rather than ground zero.

“Lands gad,” he says to my lad.
“Up there ahead, do you see?”
Reeling left, my son lifts his great heft
Calling, “Harbor ho!” bitterly.
He hates coming home to see me.

Because I said I would.
Our love started on a night
When the moon was round, and the stars hung
Low. Now my belly is round, and my breasts hang low, and

Only you could love me so
Voraciously still.
Each memory is a chemical balance, fermenting with age until we are
Ripe with such fullness. I partake of this drink, with you, because I said I would.


For another rendition from the same palette check out Sleepy Joe's lovely story here. Much thanks to her for sharing part of her world.

And for your final piece of magic today I bring you some love from Xavier Rudd:



  1. Bowl-Over made me cry. Honestly, tears down my cheeks. You're so talented. And, I'm so blessed to call you my friend.

    1. Tears...such a high compliment, Jewels. Thank you for feeling so deeply and knowing a bit of where I'm coming from. I'm likewise blessed to call you friend.

  2. Caitlyn, I got your comment but I'm not sure why it's not showing up? Ironic in so many ways, eh? But you are sooo not lame. I could gush here, but for both our sakes I'm choosing not to. Thanks for the kudos on the poetry. Love your stuff too, huge chunks.

  3. I love that you got poetry and such wonderful hope and magic in bowled-over. And I got something wholly different, same palette different shades ;-) Plus Xavier goes so well with this post!

    Thanks for the linky link and what beautiful shade of blue you created.
