“GRANADA CAMP FOR WAYWARD POETS”
SUMMER P.A.D. GAUNTLET
We’re Heading to Camp
…Summer camp-related inspiration. Long, short, rhymed, it doesn’t matter. Just write. Every day. That’s the gauntlet…
(NOTE: I don’t remember much camping, so… Hmmm… let me try to imagine everything… 🙂 !!)
On A Roll
He made me laugh through our darkest of days,
So many, many hours ended that way.
Let loose! Let loose! With laughter then,
Who knows when we shall laugh again?
Sit here real close, let me tell you once more:
Let loose your laughter! We fell to the floor!
“Loud! A raucous!” They started to say,
But we didn’t care, just laughed anyway!
“Hush up! Hush up!” Not spoken out,
It would not quiet laughter’s shout.
So, stopping well short of that which they brought,
“Hush up” was something they left there in thought.

I wonder, do they frighten bugs?
Umbrellas for the ants, perhaps?
Their slide into the mud, maybe?
A fan for them to hold, I think.
A w a k e n s
Can live another day right here
A place where wonders reappear,
Each day dawns bright and winds its way
Through meaning deep, where moments stay.
Imperfectly perfect notes,
After the Storm, Peace
Are you ready for
And when it comes
Can you run for
Because, one thing is for
You will never be the same after.

Into Our Eyes
“For you, from me:
We smiled, laughed
If I were those puppies
Tumbling thru space
In playful, sweet grace
What more could I ask
Than a kind human face?
Each move they make leaves us entranced
As whirl and twirl in grace they dance
In harmony with their sweet song
In dolphin time, they breeze along.
