cleaning the kitchen

i shall disperse

my pack rat tendencies

into a primary exterior

into a primary circle

let wet paper cups

leap onto dry napkins

awaiting peril

protecting one’s characters

solves nothing

One Lovely Blog Award

Thank you to sunontiepost at:  http://sunontiepost.wordpress.com/ for nominating me for this award.

The Rules of Acceptance:

  1. Thank the person/people who nominated you and link back to them in your post:
  2. Share seven possibly unknown things about yourself.
  3. Nominate fifteen or so bloggers you admire.
  4. Contact the chosen bloggers to let them know and link back to them.

7 things about me:

1.  I only buy Unico tinned tuna.

2.  A little boy told me that kangaroos jump higher than grasshoppers and now that’s stuck in my head.  LOL.

3.  The book, Arthur Lismer’s Pen and Pencil by Marjorie Lismer Bridges, inspired me when I was in my early twenties.  It’s a wonderful book for developing aesthetic awareness.

5.  My father passed away when I was 21 years old.

6.  I have two muses in my living room — one, a print and the other an original miniature painting by an unknown artist.

The Versatile Blogger Award

Thank you to Pat Garcia at:  http://patgarciabookreviews.wordpress.com/ for nominating me for The Versatile Blogger award.  Gee–now I know how to spell versatile.  I don’t think I’ve ever written that word down before–funny that!  Pat’s blog is an exciting book review blog.  If you enjoy reading, please check it out.  What you will find there are Pat’s book reviews the way that she thinks book reviews should be.  🙂  Pat is a bright, enthusiastic, warm, supportive, talented and soulful person–a lovely human being . . .  and I am honored to be a friend.

In accordance with the rules here seven things about myself:

1.  My next poem is going to include many sounds.

2.  I have a Bettie Boop fridge magnet on my refrigerator door that a co-worker gave to me years ago and it’s still there. lol…

3.  I went deep sea fishing once and returned redder than a lobster.

4.  The first and last horse that I ever rode was named, Cheemo.  He was old and liked to eat grass.  Sometime, I will write a poem about him.

5.  I am the most creative when there is a full moon.

6.  I do my best writing very late at night and my worst writing in the middle of the day.

7.  I have childhood memories prior to the age of being able to speak.
