                                           Figure 1: Ceramic creature, species leafkin copaceticus 

"Copacetic." I've never heard anyone but my father use this word, but I'd like to hear it spoken more often considering its fine, no, its completely satisfactory, very good, even excellent definition
For several years during my childhood, each week my mother would compile 25 words in the dictionary for me to look up. I had to write each word down 3 times, look up its definition, and then use it in a sentence. 

Copacetic. Copacetic. Also Copasetic. 

As in, "Life is copacetic as long as I have my pint of Death by Chocolate."

American slang for something that is "in excellent order."

Celebratory Fireworks!

Hurrah! I just finished novel #2 this year! I think fireworks are in order, don't you? All right, so I am pretending the dreaded revision beast won't come after me (insert shudder). Its running scarlet ink makes a Jabberwocky seem like a cuddly kitten!

Wing Fall

Silk and flutter dropping colors.
Twin dreaming panes on hot summer asphalt 
I (almost) crushed underfoot. 
Now sorrow for grace undone,
Marvel for what remains.
