The Straw That Broke The Camels Back 7/9/2020

Pain shared is pain halved, it's cool to listen, but at times, we have to limit the amount of what we hear and bare to take care of our precious self. This was inspired after listening to a friend say, "I can't take one more thing, not one!" As I…

Things I know ~ by Katrina Curtiss 7/8/202
Katrina At The Grand Canyon

In a time where many feel apart from, perhaps we are a part of each other. Feel free to add "Things you know" I know the sound of one hand clapping and the sound of applause I know job loss and job success. I know financial stress and financial abundance.…

An Old Forgotten Photo ~ by Katrina Curtiss 7/8/2020

During the COVID-19 Virus, I’ve been struck with a cleaning virus, not to make light of the situation, but it’s a bit much even for me.   Going through drawers, I found a picture of Howard, my biological father. He left for “greener” pastures when I was 5, new love,…

A 4th of July Memory ~ by Katrina Curtiss 7/4/2020

It was a dreary day in my neighborhood, forecast of rain daunted many a celebration. We were invited up the street to a neighbor’s backyard picnic. I was young, adults seemed old, the food was eaten, drinks were drunk. As it started to rain, my family of 5 scurried home,…

As Another Day Ends ~ a short poem for you by me 6/25/2020
Good Night My Friends, May You Float With The Angels

Not every apple you find is round, as it grows upon the tree Not every moment is one that will forever live in memory Not every rainfall is followed by the grass that grows Not everyone reaps in life, exactly what he or she sows. In this very moment in…

To Gig or Not to Gig ~ Feeling Untethered In A World Of Uncertainty I played a gig last night, the first one since COVID-19 came to town. I hesitated taking it, but the venue is an open air space, outside, lots of fresh, circulating air. Minding that I’m a…

My Cat Protests for Pâté ~ a short poem by Katrina Curtiss 6/4/2020

Basura Cat doesn’t like shredded, she likes Pâté This morning she had this to say “You fed me flakes; I like the shape of cakes You already know this for goodness sakes!” “Basura,” I said, “some cats don’t have food You’ve got no right to this crazy cat mood.” She…

My New Walking Friend ~ Sabrina

I’m exhausted after watching the protest, weary of the conflict, confused by the acts of violence. I watch what’s happening and search the skies for understanding. It’s as if we were just emerging from one storm, only to find ourselves in yet, another. It would be nice to have blue skies…

Basra's conversation with God

My cat came to me with something important to say My goodness, our second talk in one day She told she just had a conversation with God I thought to myself, this is certainly odd “What did God say to you?” I whispered in her ear She continued to purr,…
