Plum Colored Barn

in the plum-colored barn

the wind was a-drift, they did stop for a rest
(an expected loss in time, on this forced recess)
as they sat amongst shovels, in the plum-colored barn
the friends made strange stitches into some kind of  yarn
in no time the wool became wind-breaker type sweaters
woven with magical runes, symbols and strange letters
thus this secret cabal could progress on their trek
’til they’d needed soft scarves to warm up each neck

Purple Paw Flags

waving the purple flag

each earthly state will happen to fly
a purple flag of an arbitrary citizen
‘tis a game of troubling dreams
whence one un-lucky year lags
behind its forerunner

The purple flag is purple because one of the words on the wordle list was purple. I was looking online for a purple flag and found the Clemson University Flag. I loved it because it had a paw on it, which means animal lover, in the ANIPAL world. I am learning how to use illustrator, and I wanted more than one flag, so I made this little artwork myself. Nothing spectacular, but it’s the first step in learning how to use the tool.
