the models walk the improvised red carpet,

do they have the right stuff or the potential?

the pros strut, pose, pause, turn,

the newbies move too fast, as if in a race,

their faces read nerves, fear,

slow down, take your time,

breathe, smile, that's better,

now go home and practice....

Cinderella at the Ball....

Have you found an evening dress to bring on
Friday, February 27 at Ibiza Lounge?

You say, what?  At the Cinderella Event, you have an opportunity to provide a young lady with a new or gently worn dress so she can attend her prom...  Accessories help as well...

Without this dress she can not go, which would be quite sad...  So peek into your closet and see what you have to make Cinderella into a princess for one night!

More details coming soon...

Ladies, I want you to go to your closet, dig in the back, find the evening dresses. 
Is there one you will not wear again, one you will not  miss? 
If there is, this event is for you...
It's your chance to turn Cinderella into a princess
by donating this dress
at the Ibiza Lounge at 1409 E. Cary St., RVA
on February 27!
The dresses are given to young ladies who want
to attend their prom, but don't have a dress to wear.  
Put a smile on each face, including yours!
More information will be coming...

so fragile, a vase

soon to be in shards, tears well,

refuse to release.

haiku cubed

stumbling out of prose,

unsure, tumbling into space,

i found poetry.

wears a low cut blouse,

her red hair short and spiky,

reads books to the blind.

haiku for you....

I fold my words neat
origami, paper crane
pierces wintry sky

icy cold...

photo by author


As a thought circles round and round,

an insidious whisper that life is limited,

more time behind than before,

departure random.

hitting the gut with a tightly clenched fist,

the anxiety zooms, fight or flight,
yet neither stops time.

mundane tasks distract,

contemplation on hold,

not today, maybe tomorrow, 

a trick to buy a slice of day.
