Pensive about Hearts


I’ve just completed this Valentine Rooster to send good luck, prosperity, and happiness to ya’ll… For extra measure and extra love it’s resting on an Armenian oriental carpet  woven with signs of luck, good fortune,  Tree of Life, and eternity. May all beings have love.


In The Garden

Play it safe Eve,
Follow the rules.
Eve,where are you going?

Eve he was always like that,
likes to be in charge,
forgets how much you do,
forgets you have needs, too.

Life is more than this garden Eve.
Have you ever looked outside the gate,
have you ever wondered what is out there?
Eve, have you noticed the serpent?


Just here— I’ll rest her in this tree branch
notice how she moves
her body hugs the tree.
Watch her move along the trunk
have you ever been touched like that Eve?

Eve… are you hungry?
