The Three-Legged Race

Artistic Wanderings

The summer has been cool,
no droughts,
no heat waves to shake things up…

shake things up by making a scene
your own -
create your soul into expression…

expression opens up the windows
to let our dreams…
fly free.

At Your Service

Stir Your Soul

Pick a pot,
(any size will do)
add your gifts,
(time, money, food, help, etc.)
add a secret ingredient
(wishes born of stars)
and stir.

When your soul overflows,
(think rainbows pouring)
your soup is done.

Camp Dance; Summer Romance


A cascade of stars
was all I could see,
as she was walking
forward to me.

She grabbed my hand
and pulled me out,
to dance with her
I wanted to shout.

The tempo slowed down
and she snuggled in close,
I held her in my arms…
wow, girls aren’t gross.

My friends were snickering
but I gave them no mind,
I had heaven in my arms
they were just blind.

I led her away
from those snickering fools,
gave her a kiss
we broke a few rules.

I’ve never forgotten
my first dance and kiss,
it was the first time
I discovered true bliss.

Scavenger Hunt - Wordle


We went on a vacation
and traveled by canoe
we sang camp songs
under a magnificent view.

No one threw stones
at windows that didn’t exist,
our home was a tent,
our couch a log bench.

Our hotel had trees
and a family of bears,
we’d bang our canteens
to let them know we were there.

At night,
we would shut the lanterns off
and the stars filled the sky
like ten trillion fireflies.

We howled like wolves
and drank water from the lake,
we hunted for signs of life,
it wasn’t hard to mistake.

Nature opened her arms
and embraced us all,
we headed for home
with stories to enthrall.

I don’t need much…

Running water,
hot and cold,
a toilet with a door.

A comfy bed
surrounded by windows
and books on every floor.

Someone to cook and clean
so we could play
and play some more.

Swimming and hiking -
the best of both worlds
right outside my door.

Oh I could continue on
but the fact remains -

less is always more.
