this warm breeze is so fine settles
within me like a glass of red wine
arousing my pallet lifting my spirit
soaring across the wide open grandeur

I want more as my nose except this
vintage aroma tickling me sending chills
down my spine to the nape of my back
awakening my senses to young grapes

asian pears a hint of cedar a fine plum
lingers about my tongue adding a rather
calming smooth texture tampering with
my taste buds a playful tad of citrus holding

nothing back making me blush chocolate
gives this one a bold finish a fruity rush
my blonde hairs stand erect along my shoulders
reflecting the sun softly dancing between this
tangible subtle untimely crisp noon time breeze

the fascinating hills of rome
my great grandfather building

statues roads stone buildings
with his bare hands named after

Mason Italy through the valley down
the canals of Vicenza my great

grandmother named me Nona
which means grandmother

in Italian dazzling the floral gardens
that covered the stonery my heritage

the name Mason means stone builder
in Italian it also means stone worker

our heritage culture before arriving
America mi Nona She Knows

Aroused by chemistry

Hints of us dazzling

about the mystical

beacons rays the sun

has left behind cradled

to the blunt offerings

of brilliant moon dusk

borrowed from tomorrow

crystalizing sandy shores

lifting the sea sinking

the tides revealing

Heaven on earth daily

a quiet calmness explored

why do we then crave

a future unseen unfelt

at risk of missing totally

out on the beauty of today

this dramatic verse explains the Christmas eve curse
it was that Christmas eve I lay broken in chronic pain
todays missal St John Paul 11 final Christmas eve mass
my husband burst in the door after creeping with you

no sugar plums or turkey just a fist full of pain slamming
his daughters head right through a wooden door
punching my son in the back of the head down to the floor
he had a previous head injury already he was trying to stop his dad

from breaking my arm you see although your terror against me
was decades ago my husband confessed his sin only too late
you see I'd already taken Jesus Christ as my new and only mate
I wonder your rage envy anger slander vicious attacks toward me

why he has since moved on you loaded him with lust slander
and violence to attack his own family I forgave him long ago
after wondering what could make him turn so violent on his knees
he explained we were new in town I had no friends a disabled family

I couldn't take care of myself he vowed to honor sickness and health
I suffered severe traumatic brain injury blindness my husband shattered
into tears saying you were just released again from prison he'd been
meeting you late night he apologized after he was released from jail

he did moved right in with you I stayed within my faith never to return
to such a violent man living with his convicted violent mistress
I thank god for my catholic church domestic violence outreach
the brain injury foundation for helping me remain safe

stop threatening me honey I gave you my husband Christmas eve

that Christmas eve I lay broken and blungeoned his rage exploded

after he returned home from creeping with you he smelled of pico degio booze

spit and slob it was Christmas eve i'm so glad this day has passed as I lay ill reading the

todays missal st john paul 11 final Christmas eve mass my husband

storms in a fist full of painful gifts for his family pushing his daughter head first in door

breaking my arm punching my brain damaged son head first to the floor

throwing large items busting the walls controlled answering the devils calls

a bewitching lustful spell to kill his own family something worse than amittyville

horror or hell I was new in town I had no friends the police arrived hauled him away

oh and honey you can have him back to your bed is where he'd stay

your anger with me slander stalking home invasions after all this abuse after all this madness

you loaded him to attack his own family he still left your sticking bed for a man in a dress

move on dear that was nearly two decades ago I can't believe your rage envy hatred still thrives for my ex husband is transgendered now I forgave him long ago I was brain injured blind I'm at peace you are truly dangerous very vicious and very violent offender
