Orbs Have Taken To The Skies

A truncated, self replicating poem that I created, based on a cocktail napkin that inspired a little bit of art.  You yourself should try a little bit of art.

My Life * A Series *

Engage, then disengage
This is my repeated policy,
enacted of it's own accord.

I want all of time to be mine.

This was written last summer during a period of 'office work'
outdoors. The fine weather of summer in Fairview PA often 
lures me out of the office, so I at least attempt to be 
productive, while actually wanting to roll in the grass and
look at the clouds. Don't worry, I'm still manly; I often do
pushups as well. Here is another missive written that same

My Tawny Cat

My tawny cat lies, alert and bathing in the summer grass.
Listens, stretches and rolls.

I wrote this on August 7, 2014. It was a beautiful summer day, so I moved my office outside so I could be quickly inspired by the beauty all around.  You can learn more about my tawny cat (Dexter) here.   ~TH~
