Do NOT stick your broccoli all up in my cheese sauce. If you are going to push my buttons, have the decency to hold off until you’ve gathered your ducks all into one row, swept your leaves all into one pile, de-toxify your habitual tendencies toward addictive obsessions by attending a twelve-step meeting, and tried […] The post JUST WAIT BY TANSY JULIE SOARING EAGLE PASCHOLD appeared first on The RavensPerch ..read more

ASHES BY TANSY JULIE SOARING EAGLE PASCHOLD

The evening sky is a royal blue grey, an eerie striation from steel to cornflower blue lined with a furrowed brow of clouds blowing treetops flat and swirling anything not heavy enough to be held down. At home the ashes from my fire pit threaten to leave their circular brick home, a reminder that what […] The post ASHES BY TANSY JULIE SOARING EAGLE PASCHOLD appeared first on The RavensPerch ..read more

Link your hyphae to my fingertips oh fungal spore, and join me to the foot of every rooted giant; let us make senses, create the very fiber of nerves that convey the essence of what it is to feel the ochre and mahogany, tawny scented soil pored between your root hairs, the molecules of water […] The post MAKE SENSES BY TANSY JULIE SOARING EAGLE PASCHOLD appeared first on The RavensPerch ..read more

PAYING THE MOON ITS DUE BY CYNTHIA PRATT

It might have begun this way: each night wolves hunted, the moon their guide. Sometimes large, sometimes a sliver: enough light to teach them night is night, a good time to roam. Moonlight is a time for food and family, and learning patterns of seasons. That might be how it was, at least I’d like […] The post PAYING THE MOON ITS DUE BY CYNTHIA PRATT appeared first on The RavensPerch ..read more

You won’t speak up and I can only guess why. Such is the case of a doppelganger who only shows up at the bus depot’s west side, the one nearest the blue, oh so blue hanger that holds the transport vehicles like a tight cage. But there you are, briefly, too light in the bright […] The post OBLIVIOUS TWIN BY CYNTHIA PRATT appeared first on The RavensPerch ..read more

Secretly, I know my name is Moon Whisperer. Tonight, I lie awake, a slip of light cracking through branches, blue glow hitting windows. I whisper, “Turn off,” and clouds cover the lunar face. Before I learned my skill, I named myself sleep drifter, the night sliding into my mouth where fox then roamed, an owl […] The post TAMING THE LONGING BY CYNTHIA PRATT appeared first on The RavensPerch ..read more

HOW WE TRY TO AVERT OUR EYES BY CYNTHIA PRATT

Finally, spring but also war again, this noxious weed we keep trying to pull up, get rid of. This time not us but always someone, who knows someone, who knows someone else dead, a trampled flower. Shoots sprout daffodil petals. They wave yellow heads in the wind, fighting the sway and toss. The sky now […] The post HOW WE TRY TO AVERT OUR EYES BY CYNTHIA PRATT appeared first on The RavensPerch ..read more

LOST BY BETH KEPHART

The bird soft with life in the strawberry patch, barely feathered, size of my cupped hands, the hymn in it dying. Margaret Finley D’Imperio, cake burner, stoop sitter, Easter basket builder, grandmother, when I was nine. The bird died, then she did, and all my magnitude was sky, the way I watched it for wingworks. […] The post LOST BY BETH KEPHART appeared first on The RavensPerch ..read more

I am a bright blue feather and a water lily’s dream, I am a fern unfurling, veiled in waterfall mist, your smile when I come home carries me like a wave swooshing ashore, you love a red horse in snow and willows that fall through moonlight, you are an old oak’s mother voice among young […] The post A BRIGHT BLUE FEATHER BY NAN LUNDEEN appeared first on The RavensPerch ..read more

DARYL’S LAUNDRY BY TIM LOUIS MACALUSO

Following a trail of cougar movement his everyday likeness lost save for his shirtless torso perfectly proportioned sculptured by the morning light casting its lines through the bedroom window as he tucks clean underwear into the dresser drawer; leaves a watermark the bouquet of aged memory stills from the past, impressions suspended in time by […] The post DARYL’S LAUNDRY BY TIM LOUIS MACALUSO appeared first on The RavensPerch ..read more
