Mama's Place

Guidance
and good reads.
A bible
with a female lead.
Coffee
and smoke - clove sweet
and clinging

to ghosts hived
in jasmine pages.
Paper riddles
soft and sacred.
Words loved
loose, naked,
singing

here.

For The Tuesday Platform at Real Toads

I get a feeling of being in a garden of words.. the paper soil and with coffee as the fertilizer..

Rose Ketring said...

Loved this line especially "Bible with a female lead" :D

Nothing liked a cup of hot coffee.. to stir up the muse and let us thus create a garden of our blooming verse! Beautifully done :D

The mothering here -- the maternal bosom -- is so named and particular and yet its a universal place, a tradition, a full womb. I get the sense that this is making more of what the speaker was given.

I love this:
"clove sweet
and clinging
to ghosts hived
in jasmine pages.
Paper riddles
soft and sacred.
Words loved
loose, naked"

Loved the sensual imagery!

Such a cliche to just say I loved this, but that is my reaction--a gem of a mood piece, every word weighted and embellishing without distracting from the beauty of the whole. Hope you are okay in this insane weather, and keeping your words dry.
