puppy love

New girl on the block, Daisy, is crazy for Blue.
ooo la la
woof
*nose touch*
Then me, dragging him away from her fence, after he tugs me to hurry up and get there.
They don’t feel the cold.
Must be LOVE.
That’s amore.
Puppy kind.
woof

chasing rainbows

IMG_5716.JPG

I have a prism hanging in my dining room window. The heat vent underneath the window is making the prism swing gently from side to side. It is an east facing window with morning light. Blue dog is chasing rainbows in the living room. Well, more like light swatches at the moment, that move across the floor to the furniture, walls and back to the floor again. I knew he liked chasing the cat’s laser light, flashlight beams and the sunlight glint from his collar tags. Now rainbows via prism light. Blue also stops to smell the flowers, takes me on startlit/moonlight walks and woofs to go out in time to catch the sunrise/sunset. May you have a blessed rainbow chasing day. Woof.

Tuesday Art Discovery: at the day’s end

My poem, “at day’s end,” is paired with one of Karen Glosser’s photographs for “Tuesday Art Discovery” on Nutmeg Chatter. I am honored to be part of this collaboration. Thank you, J. Timothy Quirk, for promoting the Arts. ~Janean

NUTMEG CHATTER

at days end 1

The Nutmeg Chatter Tuesday Art Discovery is a portion of Nutmeg Chatter curated by editor-in-chief J. Timothy Quirk. The Discovery highlights a specific work, whether a poem, photograph, visual art, short story, video or song and the creators of the work do not have to be located in Connecticut to be considered.

Today’s Art Discovery merges the work of two distinct creators who reside in different states. The poem was authored by Janean Baird in Illinois. The photograph was created by Karen Glosser in Western New York.

Janean Baird is an artist, poet and daydreamer residing in central Illinois; her work has been exhibited in murals in Uptown Normal, Illinois and Bloomington, Illinois. Her artwork is available through the Main Gallery 404, Inc. in Bloomington, IL and by contacting Janean directly with commissions accepted.  Baird’s poetry can be found on her site TURQUOISE TANGLES and her popular Tumblr site: Tuquoise Tangles tumblr blog.
