Mornings; Four O’clocks.

(In bed)

They say it’s a lonely place.

You know, the time when Dark meets Dawn, when the cold has got no chill.

(Get it?)

When the writer writes for writing, and sense makes no sense…

(When you say a lot of things about things to avoid saying things about a person).

Too many thoughts; knowledge knocking, bustling, bristling; racing for the surface. It’s too early…

Thoughts of things, of life but mostly, of a person.

A human.

Maybe the ones we really care about are not the ones we sleep with

Maybe they are the thoughts that wake us up; the ones we wake up with.

-Caleb Nmeribe #Carlflame

Hidden statistics revealed, I stroke her head while she’s sleeping

Cuddle then turn away, skin contact arousing, precum sneaking sticky notes

She says things like this, don’t even cross her mind

Spontaneousness for her, thoughtful planned actions and words from me.

*

Interested parties increasing, but none of them are her

Green witnesses jealous and confused, unsure how we love

Placed hope, heart and mind on the line, only I know, how much I’ll do to make sure she’s alright

Maybe sexual moments, charge my soul along with toe deep conversations, they help make it all feel whole.

*

No matter how we split, death, decisions, or forfeit

It should be told, the high hopes and moments even plans unrevealed, when I said I loved her I meant it

Cry baby feelings, on my Twitter feed, poem after poem, displaying wants, needs.

On Location Series #11–Fort Washington Park

This was a delightful day.  My little one and I explore Fort Washington Park which was the namesake of its location in Fort Washington, MD.    Fort Washington, established near the community of Fort Washington, Maryland, was for many decades the only defensive fort protecting Washington D.C. The original fort, overlooking the Potomac River, was built in 1809.  It was originally called  Fort Warburton but was renamed in 1808.  During the War of 1812, the fort was demolished by its own garrison during a British advance.

As of today, this historic fort is maintained by the National Park Service.  It was initially constructed in 1824. It is a stone structure with a reliable cannon directed down the Potomac River. The fort was largely remodeled in the 1840s and 1890s. The Fort was turned over to the U.S. Department of the Interior in 1946 after its last military personnel left.

Now with that bit of history out of the way, here are some videos and pictures of our time in the park.  Our visit took place on November 3, 2018.  I hope you will enjoy this brief On Location Series—

oh again, HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
