If you like art forms, or care about living things, this is the blog for you. Poetry, essays, watercolor, acrylics, films, novels, music...pick your pleasure. I'll post my own work, and anyone else's which catch my eye. I'll recommend books and films, some obscure, others not. So, as Walt, my fellow Living Poet on the poetic asides section of writersdigest.com, says, "come little goldfish in my pond, interact, don't be koi."

Anti (war) Lovers
No one hates war
more than the warrior. This is a given. This for sure.
So brave, so eager, the lovers of war, can’t wait to send kids to some worthless shore.
Safe in their office, the hawks, mostly men, ship children to battle, boldly, but then,
if they just once would yield, witness one battlefield, they’d think long and hard before they did it again.
Send your own sons to face enemy guns, send your own daughters to witness the slaughters.
