A bubblegum World


Time shattered that day, when I saw through a crack,
another teaming, seething, crystal world,
(I was stuck on my usual side)

It was a  bubblegum world, with grassy places,
trees awake with new leaves,
old limbs fading with the death of winter,

Look,
There’s a beauty!  Boughs swinging in the windy sun,
searching for a new spring nest.

A Popsickle Day

Once upon a time, long before now,
When the grass was as green as a lollypop~
Off we went down the sidewalk edge,
looking for a piece of eternity.

It was a popsicle day,
With trees saturated in summer~
Sidewalks so hot you needed shoes,
You could fry an egg if you wanted, they said.

We were warned of course, about crossing the street,
We were threatened, coerced and cautioned~
Of course we crossed it anyway,
As we scattered away that diamond day.

The Poetry Of Life



Let the plant wither if it must, the seed fell days ago;
Stuck in a pod, half blind, trapped in a cold puddle,
Like some muddied, pock-marked, leftover snowball.
Too dismal to throw.
I have nothing to do but hibernate.
What am I some kind of iced-over, frost bitten hedgehog?

I’m shrinking! 
How can this be with all these trickles?
I’m down to a husk of a thing, rattling around like some blind-sided snail.
I’m dying out here!
Or  maybe drying; at least things are improving,
I mean how can I do anything about it?

OUCH!
I’ve been crunched by a rabid runner and stuffed into a furrow!
I think I’ll cry...yes...
Wait a minute, what is that streaming stuff?
Is it dirt?  Is it Sun?  Is it Rain?
I’m growing! 
Help! I’m being resurrected!

One Year Ago ~ Brownstone Demolition Underway!

Well, perhaps it isn't EXACTly a Classic Brownstone.  So maybe it's a BrickStone Brownstone, but regardless, it has the Very Soul of a Brownstone!  And what is a Brownstone anyway?  It is a spirit matter, is it not?

LARA LEE CALLOWAY
 Funeral rites for Lara Lee Calloway will be at 3 p.m. Sunday in the village church at Canada de Los Alamos in the valley below her childhood home on the Old Santa Fe Trail. She died in her sleep on May 3 at home in Chicago. She lived in an artful world filled with colors and fabrics and images and fine trinkets and sacred illuminations and people with stories to tell. Growing up, she worked in Santa Fe galleries, ushered at the Opera and traveled often in Georgia O'Keeffe country. She graduated from St. Michael's High School in 1991 and received a BA in art history from UNM in 1995. She left Santa Fe in her early twenties, drawn to the advanced School of a great museum, the Art Institute of Chicago, where she received a BA in fine arts in 2000. She remained in Chicago, doing photography and fashion, making jewelry, acting in her beloved improv theaters and enjoying urban life while supporting herself with office work, predominantly in the financial district. Last fall she entered a new graduate program at the SAIC about public engagement in events and museums. In a SAIC memorial service, friends and classmates lauded her work and joyful personality. Everyone will miss her humorous portraits of Chicago posted in social media and written with her thumbs while riding on trains and buses. Lara was only 42. She was preceded in death 14 months ago by her mother, Tova Calloway. She is survived by her father, Larry Calloway of Crestone, CO, her sister Maia Calloway and her aunt Linda Jo Calloway.
