Day 24: Body of work

Today I woke up, read the prompt, fell back into dreams, and awoke with the first part of the poem. It is also the birthday of my elephant-loving friend without a single elephant in my post and the election day in Slovenia. Prompt 24: “Hard-boiled detective novels are known for their use of vivid similes,Continue reading “Day 24: Body of work”

Day 17 & Pic and a Word #309: Dogs

I could write a poem with a line for every dog I’ve ever met… Prompt 17: “This is a fun one – it’s a prompt developed by the comic artist Lynda Barry, and it asks you to think about dogs you have known, seen, or heard about, and then use them as a springboard into whereverContinue reading “Day 17 & Pic and a Word #309: Dogs”

I could do many galleries like this one, and I have, and I will.Continue reading “Lens-Artists PC: Interesting finds”
