Larry, this is my wife's (Lynda's) painting of a "Yesterday's (sunflower) Round-Up," lol. I thought it would show a bit more of the sunflower, but she focused on the Western Boot, sorry to say. pinkpanther.gif Ali

Hey Ali,

Glad you tried my suggestion. It is a beautiful painting and I'm glad she didn't depict the boot stepping on the lovely flowers.

Thanks for sharing. The painting might be fodder for a poem, who knows?

Larry,
her painting placed second at an art show. But my Lighthouse in Stormy Sea placed first. Eat your heart out, Lynda Lu! (I'm crowing like a rooster, lol.)

Hey Ali, we can use your wife's original painting in Acropolis to inspire poems. We've done that in the past. What do you say?

Hey Ali,

You might post your 1st place painting like you did your wife's. Lets see how the MM "crowd" views the results of your crowing.

Absolutely, Psyche--or Sylvia, whichever name you prefer. Do you need me to post the original or can you take it off what I had posted. Thanks for asking,
Ali

Ali, here is a Sonnet "to boot"!


The Shrine

One boot was in the stirrups when he fell
while rounding up some strays that needed brands;
the other one was lost along the trail.
It followed near the bluffs above the sands

and sediment from raging river’s bed
that shaped the land; depositing its silt.
The mouth and delta formed a nice homestead
so that is where his house and ranch were built.

Sunflower seeds were planted in one field
for drying and to feed his little herds
of sheep and cows. He always had good yield
so there was extra seed to feed the birds.

His horse came back, that boot still lodged in place
so it is now a shrine; a meagre trace.

Larry, wow! What a marvelous monument to Lynda's boot you have built. Plenty of Sunflowers to rival the number of poppies in Flanders' fields She loves it; made her day! On a similarly tragic note, I posted a photo shot and poem about Wrangler Bill who died in the saddle. I think I had it published in The Australia Times under my real name. Thanks, Ali

Hi Ali,

I am so pleased that you and Lynda liked my answer to the picture challenge. It took me a few days to construct but the first phrase popped into my mind while looking at the picture for the first time.

I love a good challenge!

Good Morning/Day, Larry;
once again I thank thee, kind Sir, and I know that Larry is thy rightful name; never had any doubt, lol. As to my real name--well, I confess to having played the chameleon. I think about a year ago I found myself banished from this site--at least I think I was, for I could not log on by my name "JerryK., which stands for Jerry Kemp. Recently I decided to change my alias to Ali, and . . . Bingo! Here I am. Well, now, after this revelation, I can only wait for the other "Boot" to drop as I wonder whether or not I will be "booted" off this site for no real reason that I can think of. Meanwhile, thank you, Larry.
Jerry

Hello Ali,

Thanks for clarifying the name thing. I did check the member list and you are still on the list as JerryK. Don't know what the problem with signing on under that name. Why don't you try it again.

Thanks for checking, Larry,
but no matter what I try, the message remains the same. It's something about an error in the name or password. Actually, I'm quite content with "Ali" as in Ali Baba, lol. See you soon, Ali
