Blind-Born Fish

Blind-Born Fish

If I were a blind-born fish Pale and listless on deep sea cliff, Never to know the heat of sun Nor the thin white feel of day, I could never dream of that called warm Nor vision a heat-scorched sand. I see in this colored day While sitting in filtered noontime sun, A world all […]

Talking to Ourselves

Talking to Ourselves

My dog Wilma and I take a turn off the main drag onto one of the tree-lined blocks of our Pasadena neighborhood. Across the street a man walks in the opposite direction, talking to himself.

Buffalo Sprouts

Buffalo Sprouts

Buffalo wings have been a long-time favorite in my household.

From Oenology to Criminology

From Oenology to Criminology

Northern California may be renowned for its vintages, but the state’s wine industry “actually was born near El Pueblo de Los Angeles.” Whatever one’s feelings may be about the Spanish missionaries, we must thank them for planting, nurturing, and then in 1782 harvesting their first vintage at Mission San Juan Capistrano. Vineyards were cultivated at […]

Woman in Metaphor

Woman in Metaphor

Woman in Metaphor by editor Maria Elena B. Mahler is described as “an anthology of poems inspired by the paintings of Stephen Linsteadt.” Below is culled from official text: Mahler invited twenty-seven poets from around the world to share their vision of the feminine spirit inspired by the paintings of Stephen Linsteadt from his series, […]
