Noir is not a genre
noir is a tone

hard work and learning
Forgetting all my passwords
what does noir mean?

Magic MacGuffin

This TDC was a walk down memory lane. I found a photo of my camp avatar and this poem written as I finished the course. Duh, do you ever finish DS 106? Nope, #4Life.

On top of Mt. MacGuffin
All covered with corn
I found my creativity
with which I’d been born.

Cause creating a pleasure
though sometimes a chore
But when I am finished
I always want more.

A creative classroom

Undoubtedly meant for me.

No boundaries here.

Eloquently put

By my virtual classmate,

“Adventures await.”

“With every step

We value handrails.

Thinking is easy,
being creative is not.
Help with writers block.

Keen return after
Uncreative interval:
Bathetic haikus

Two Years in the Garden of DS 106

Two Years In the Garden of DS106

Orange-throated crocus
push through winter snow to bloom:
I believe in Spring!

Last year’s decayed leaves
become compost for spring beauty.
Look! The rose has bloomed!

The Gardener doesn’t see
underground where a river
of green is flowing.

Every day she comes
to work the soil. The canny
Crow watches and laughs.

August tomatoes
hang like little suns. Harvest
surprises me once more.
