Lighting and Shadows in Cleveland

The first feature that fascinated me is the golden-hued appearance of the buildings in the background. Although born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio, and having worked in the city and knew my way around in the 1950s, new construction and infrastructure has changed the city appearance so much that I am not able to discuss many details. (The city’s iconic Terminal Tower is seen from … Continue reading Lighting and Shadows in Cleveland

New Title…update on post about assonance poems…examples from poets like Edgar Allen Poe (re-blogged from )   Yesterday’s post reminded me of how much I enjoyed the poetry classes I and about a thousand other bloggers participated in last year.   The classes were so popular they had to shut enrollment down…I think.    The moderators presented us with some really obscure, to me anyway, terms and forms of poetry.    I dimly remember poetry classes in school back in … Continue reading New Title…update on post about assonance poems…examples from poets like Edgar Allen Poe (re-blogged from )

Why are we here? Why do we Blog?

If someone is reading that Blog –even if the blog is about nothing– then all the components are there: the Blogger blogs, and the Reader reads. And IF he is reading, and she is blogging, then there is a connection… a … Continue reading Why are we here? Why do we Blog?

Found Beauty in Ice Formations

a dream of dreams

This is a poem I wrote nearly a year ago, inspired by a charming and fascinating site called Osseous Design: The Blog .      I happened upon the site one day when surfing, and wrote the date 1-24-17, and name of the Blog at the top of my notebook page.   Tracing back, I was able to find the unique  site, with its creative … Continue reading a dream of dreams

marching band music…sing loudly, don’t worry too much about lyrics

marching music please…. just try ignoring the band blaring out the Sousa beat, adoring crowds lining the streets… drummers drumming, flutes tweeting, symbols clashing… but I digress.       Back in the day I was a Girl Scout leader, and part of my duty as such was to lead the girls down the main street during the Memorial Day Parade (or other parade.)   … Continue reading marching band music…sing loudly, don’t worry too much about lyrics
