Top 14 of 2014

The most read posts of 2014.  Some of these make me wonder about my readers 😉  Just kidding.  Happy New Years and thank you for stopping to read!

1.  halloween  Two poems and a picture of Icarus (one of the two cutest black cats ever and part of the inspiration for the poem that started me back to writing regularly again; his name comes from his kitten habit of waking me up every ten minutes all night).

2.  i can’t breathe  In honor of all victims of brutality, violence, and discrimination.

3.  political poetry  Sometimes I just can’t keep my mouth shut.  I dream of a world with no war and providing equality and opportunity for all people.

4.  Introversion, Independence, Isolation, Illusions & Insanity  The first part in my on-going monologue on being toward the far end of introverted.

5.  dreams A semi-erotic love poem from 2003.  Probably should have a NSFW disclaimer in the title.

6.  inept  A short poem about being clumsy.

7.  Sunday Spoken Word Special  A friend of mine preforming some awesome anti-homophobia pieces.  Well worth the watch and the time to go check out his YouTube channel.

8.  please Guilt and shame and asking forgiveness.

9.  Into Deep Water  Some of my thoughts on surrender and struggle and working The Steps.  And disclosure of a secret.

10.  out of deep water  This poem turned around on me while writing it.  It started to be a companion piece for to pluto before the re-write but finished being another idea entirely – me and God.

11.  written the night i decided i needed to quit  Well, I’d actually tried to quit a few times before and sometimes even made it for years at a stretch.  But this was the beginning of the end.

12.  honey bee  A bee with no hive and no where to land, no flowers to drink from and no one to share honey with.  My name is from a Greek root for bee or bee-like.  (And, I’ve heard, Irish for Christ-follower.  How cool is that?)

13.  bathtub  It’s short, just read it for yourself.

14.  if you come get me  Like much of the work I post on lazy days this was long consigned to the slush pile of poetry from my teens.

Did your favorite poem not make the top hits list?  Tell me about it in the comments!  I’d love to hear more from my readers.  Have a safe and joyous New Years Eve!

About m

My ego wants to think I'm a writer but my heart knows I'm just another one of God's Kids who sometimes has words to say. 2 human kids and 3 feline kids call me Mom. Or Mooooooom. Or mewom, depending which you ask. I'm kinda-sorta busy being a student again; this time I signed myself up for a bizarre torture known as Graduate School. Theoretically in 4ish years I'll have earned some more nice letters to put with my name. Let's face it, I'm addicted to learning and probably need rehab to restore me to sanity and remove the obsession to read books. I don't remember what free time is but I think I like to spend it sleeping or playing in the mud on a river bank.
