An October Morning, Learning the ‘Old Ways’ of Sorghum Making at Spring Valley Sorghum Mill in Scottsville, KY

(c) October 2020 By Tommie Flannery Baskis It was one of those crisp October mornings that one remembers as a child; a day that held a promise to be special.

I have been writing and … Read More An October Morning, Learning the ‘Old Ways’ of Sorghum Making at Spring Valley Sorghum Mill in Scottsville, KY

Silent Town

It seemed like time had grown weary of counting the moments for us. The out-of-sync tics, sound lost within a vacuum of time, upon our deafening silent town; that forgot how to listen. Milkweed and Cottonwood seed are suspended upon the aether; a floating drift, glowing like snow in the late afternoon sun. My bare feet touch the cool, dirt path through the old … Read More Silent Town

~We are receivers of this presence, we are like secrets finding, unfolding unto the light~

  She always collected flowers in the forest for her potions, in late afternoon~ Wild plants, with burning hues that glow in the dusty hollow, where the wingless live and have been silent for so long. I see the wild things fly around her like moths attracted to flame. I watched her from a hidden place on high as the wind played about her … Read More ~We are receivers of this presence, we are like secrets finding, unfolding unto the light~

Dreams from the Wood Porch

  A stirring of rust colored leaves rise ethereal with clay dust, as the girl child dances under the hazy sun of the afternoon heat. Not yet an Angel gold dipped in sin and prayer; her tinkling laughter is matched by the cicada drone that beats with hypnotic fervor. He rocks back and forth, ceremoniously on the old porch, with solemn and careful watching. … Read More Dreams from the Wood Porch

~ Broken Winged Child ~

~ Broken Winged Child~ Daddy smiled and called me his ‘Broken Winged Child’… I hear his smile from a distance as I let go of his strong hand.

He tells me I live in a place that people left a long time ago, with … Read More ~ Broken Winged Child ~

Autumn People and Halloween in the Country

~ She walks upon ground, ancient loam with secret life buried, returning unto her. Her thought lullaby moves and dances to form; What she cannot speak. The forest will hold this sacred alliance until flame fire untie. An eve as sweet as clove, bathed in moon and silent wind- She will go before me, through the dark forest, with the guardians of night… ~ … Read More Autumn People and Halloween in the Country

Do we keep some of the sweetest things hidden in a dark place, for fear of losing the rich memory of intimacy; or are we just afraid…

The moments I speak of now are carved deep within the child I once was. The breath of my soul, fearless in the path of the great mystery, I stood proud, in the place of my time; in the place of my knowing. I am Lucinda Mae. I was born and raised in Dusty Spirit Springs; an old mining town encroached upon the forest … Read More Do we keep some of the sweetest things hidden in a dark place, for fear of losing the rich memory of intimacy; or are we just afraid…
