Thank you Dryden for your poetry. Gave me reason to write today.

Poesy

(For Dryden)

True Poets dodge the fakeness of fame.
They allow praise to fall from their thoughts.
Old Poets understand the beauty of the sun rising from the east.
Allowing opportunity for new dreams and new places to come alive.

They enjoy watching the sun falling into the western sea.
Allowing the night to overcome the excitement of the day.

A wise Poet behold the beauty of the  woman.
Tried to describe the softness of her skin and the feel
of her warm sweet kisses.

The Poet must feel the burden of war.
A writer must taste and know death, poverty and suffering.

A empty journey leave nothing for the pen and the paper.

Writers are…

flocking sheep
seek out Apple stores
upgrade time


Well. It’s that time of year again. I find myself wrapped up in thought about the inevitable consequences of the new round of “Device Wars”. I’m taking a serious look at everything I believe, and I’m asking myself the hard questions. I have the opportunity to upgrade my phone in a month and a half, and now there’s this new iPhone that’s about to hit the stores. I told myself that I really wanted to see a bigger iPhone. The new iPhone 6 comes in two sizes, both bigger than the iPhone 5. I wanted a faster processor and better specs that I know could have been delivered with my current phone. Sure, the next iPhone 6 has them.

In fact, the iPhone 6 has stuff that will wrap people around the corners of Apple stores for…

Absorbing The Strip

I must return to The Strip again
To absorb the sights and sounds
Neon luminescence floods the eyes
As crowds amble all around

Day and night the neon shines
As do all the gawkers
Flashes blind the eyes
As the hoard stops short
To capture another memory

For The Strip is a place
Of pipe dreams and fleeting fancies
If The Gambling Fever grabs you

“Live:” From Las Vegas

There’s so much to see and do in the Las Vegas area, and I don’t mean just gambling, because everyone knows about that. Buildings have been refurbished and some even destroyed to make room for other more lavish casino/hotels.

Treasure Island Hotel has its own amusement park. The Venetian has shops and restaurants and connects to Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum.

A real person statue. I sure wouldn’t want that job.

Part of Fremont Street has been enclosed and now has a carnival atmosphere. Where you could once drive down the street and see the huge cowboy waving, now you stroll by him on the way to other gambling/entertaining adventures. I wanted a photo of the cowboy lit up, but he wasn’t turned on until after dark and by then we were blocks away watching brave men and women zip line along Fremont Street’s ceiling. I wanted to take a photo of them, but my I-phone camera decided it was too full of other shots like me and the KISS impersonators and those Marvelous Marvel heroes.

There was an “Elvis” too and I would’ve loved to get his photo and a man who looked like Sonny Bono, but my I-phone camera didn’t start working again until we got home. I know this because it tried to take a photo of the guest room bed. Silly camera!

24/7 you wine and dine
Or gamble if you wish
Neon lights the sky at night
And brightens daylight too
Limos grace the streets
As you wonder who’s inside

Billboards announce who’s performing
If The Gambling Mistress lets you leave
So come enjoy the splendor
As you traverse the streets

I hear Las Vegas calling
Do you?

Until Next Time

IMG_0201.JPG
Comic Con oh Comic Con
The great weekend now is done

We walked great halls
To see the stars
And bask in all their splendor

The planning was not well at all
For too many people came
To view the stars and stroll
Amongst the glitz and glamour

And so until next year
When once again
Salt Lake City overflows

We’ll have our stories
And memories to share
Until next year, you all
