inheritance: don’t cast the stone

oh, don’t cast the stone

my dear reader

before you understand

what kind of love is hidden

into the ripping of the shirt

at midnight

when ancient rituals

are blessing

the meeting of the minds.


don’t cast the stone

my dear reader

until you know thyself

and step

into the wisdom of all ages

coming to know

mermaids from prophets

and courtesans from

Dante’s Beatrice.


and even then

don’t cast the stone

for you are not

without sin.

    1. Oh, your kind words are much appreciated!!!! I am glad that you enjoy my poems! Also thank you for bringing to my attention that my follow button disappeared. I had no idea. I reported it to WordPress.

      1. Yay! Because I thought I was following you and your stuff isn’t showing up in my feed so I guess I’m NOT following you. Most distressing. 😅 and you are very welcome!

      2. Let’s hope WP can get my follow button back. Waiting to read “maybe because I was born in September” 🙂 Did I tell you that I enjoy your posts tremendously?

      3. *crosses fingers* 😁 maybe I’ll write sometime soon! …only problem is I’m eight weeks ahead on the blog 😳 sooo it may seem like a while before you see it! And I think you have, but it’s always lovely to hear! ❤️

  1. This Love

    This love
    wants nothing.
    It just happens
    like a ray of the tree-tops
    or of a temporal bone a palm.
    This love
    is not a centenary tree keeping
    secrets –
    open and clear is shining
    the grass on the hill.
    It stays quiet under the stormy wind
    it bears under the fire of the sun,
    in hollows of the nights long
    tells fairytales.
    The world changes. – It does not faint.
    It grows up higher than it
    and shorter than the stone.
    In the church a thunder falls,
    but She is praying…
    She is Her temple
    and the temple is Her.

    And Everything!
