Storm Chaser

The Manic Minstrel

Singing in the Rain

I’m in love with a Black Cloud
She’s always looming over me;
I’ve got her Stormy Weather on my mind,
Got no Electric Worry,
I keep a Sunny Disposition
so her Silver Linings are never hard to find;
I Ride the Lightning
Happy to wait for her Thunder,
Dancing and singing in the Rain
– Let the audience just stare and wonder
Highly jealous I suspect
When I get to call her my Tempest
and she calls me
…. her little Zipper Neck!!!

So, here is the song that started this little brainstorm; I kind of went in a different direction – thinking,”Who would actually enjoy or like having a black cloud following them?” and the relational poem just evolved from there. = >

My oldest girl wanted a picture of a Great Dane with wings. Somehow I got the idea of combining Scooby with the Led Zeppelin flying angel and this is what we came up with. =>

Tulips

Delicate petals,
Soft to touch.

Pretty and pink,
Sweet to taste;
Perfect symmetry,
Beautiful face.

For this flower
I’ll do flips,
Just to kiss
your two lips.

MR. ED sketch

Just a quick and fun tribute to an old friend. MR. ED was my favorite show back in the late eighties. While other kids were watching the “modern” fare, I was cutting my teeth on the classics on Nick at Night. =>

Here is a super cool post from our friend Rebell Red. She has cute stylish sketches complimented with fantastic bits of verse. = >

In striving to create a collection of Christmas Blessing Cards I created this mousy character. Like me he’s far from perfect! But his smile is one of PURE CONTENTMENT. Honestly, I spent many mousy hours trying to assemble & arrange this simple string of words to LIGHT THE DAY. I have 2-3 other variations I’m […]

My apologies for some of the text not being very dark – my frugalness bit me a bit as I was trying to use an older pen that was starting to wane in the boldness of its ink. We’ll try to ensure better clarity in the future. Additionally our scanner likes not to cooperate; so each time I try to share a project, it inexplicably decides to be a pain in the… tuchus!!! Thanks for stopping by as always. Peace and blessings to one and all! =>
