Epic Fail

My glass is sweating
And so am I
It’s hot as, well
You know,
This 4th of July
Southern summers,
It’s hard to beat the heat
So I’ll sit my bare bottom on this
Frozen seat

Mistakes were made-
Ice is nice in my tea
But a block of ice
To cool down my tail
Is not risk-free
Take it from me
And my cold ass cheeks
Now adhered to this chilly chair,
Not all ideas are created equal
Or good for one’s derriere

The prompt is “cold ass cheeks” from Maria Giesbrecht @theguelphpoet on Instagram. April 14, National Poetry Month 2022.

Worcester City Hall Fire & Ice Art Show

I am a bit late getting this posted because of the holidays and such but I wanted to blog about it before the show ends.

I had two photos selected to hang in the Worcester City Hall Gallery for the theme of Fire & Ice.

Art Gallery/Basement Hallway (to garage)
Worcester City Hall
455 Main Street
Worcester, MA

The show runs from November 30, 2017, through February 2018.

The Spring show is coming up. The theme is “Rebirth.” I am considering entering again. It’s always fun to have art hanging in a gallery. The shows are sponsored by Worcester Cultural Coalition. If you are interested in entering, you can find more information here.

Winter’s Morn

rhythmic dripping of
icicles in winter sun –
a slow morning burn
