Adaptability

Someone dropped a blanket

On the floor?

Don’t mind if I do

Look for the Polyfill Lining

When two sleeping bags love each other very much

It is important to cross-check

Their sub-zero compatibility

You Say Potato, I Say Portable Phone

Some calls are harder to make than others

Especially the ones you try

After serving your phone with a side of sour cream

Canoe Hear Me Now?

There are few more desperate cries for help

Then trying to paddle

Through a thicket of brambles

*Yes, I know it’s some bizarre canoe-kayak hybrid. Why don’t you try to find a good “canoe-kayak hybrid” pun?

To Still A Rocking Bird

The beautiful rhythm of a rocking chair

The gentle song of well-fed birds

Why not have both?

I Build Myself With Every Step

Today is a bittersweet anniversary for me and so I thought about a recent comment I saw about age and writing. I am not that much past thirty, but I think that the importance of experience is often sidestepped when we talk about age.

As a not at all comprehensive list, by the time I was thirty I had:

climbed a mountain, been pushed from a high place and survived, had a machine gun aimed at me, fallen in love, had my heart broken, broke a heart, learned to make triple chocolate delight, forgotten how to make triple chocolate delight, survived a near-fatal illness, gotten trapped with a kite in a place where no one spoke any of the languages that I knew, received a permanent scar from a turkey, lost the man I called “Father”, learned to dance, lost friends, gained friends, built a snow fort, saved someone else from assault, sang my grandmother into death, learned to laugh, learned not to laugh at the hurt of others, lost a dream, built a thousand others

Survived. Survived. Survived.

I’m still here and everyday I’m learning.

I could ask for nothing else.

For the less introspective side of my writing, I have also written a fantasy novel, The Guests of Honor. It is available here.
