You've got them too
I've got issues
Now you've got them too
Because you want me
I've got insecurities
Now you've got them too
Because  you profess to be mine
I've got demons
Now you've got them to
Because you say you love me
I've got traumas
Now you've got them too
Because you want to be in my life
I've got happiness
Now you've got it to
Because I want you to be mine

Slinkyfest 2018!
By now, you all who watch me will be aware of the new poetry form created by edzull this year, called 'the slinky'.  Some of you have even written one!
:bulletblue: :bulletorange: :bulletgreen: Well here's some incentive to do it (or do it again!)
Slinkyfest 2018 is the first annual Slinky competition, brought to you by CommunityLit, the fantastic new group ... for Lit groups (and writers in general, of course). 
:bulletblue: :bulletorange: :bulletgreen: So -- what's a slinky, Sal?
For those unaware, a slinky is a poem of 16 lines, any line length, any meter, rhymed or un-rhymed-- with a single word (must be a noun, verb or adjective) repeated on every single line.
So the word bounces down the lines like a slinky toy. :iconslinkyplz:
For a list of good examples, see the slinky database in the journal linked below:

:bulletblue: :bulletorange: :bulletgreen: Awesome! So how do I enter this

I have never made one of them do anything. Never.
They live their own tiny lives. I do not live their lives for them.
And then they die, and they come here
(having transgressed against what they believed to be right),
and expect us to fulfill their desire for pain and retribution. 
I don't

So, I have not featured any one in a while, and I almost never feature a professional artist; because I feeel like all of us non pros need all the signal boost we can get.
THis artist, however really had some pieces of work that just made me feel good.…
look around, enjoy. I think she has some terrific work.
This is an illuminated silk sculpture from the 2017 Chinese Lantern festival in Albuquerque, NM.
This impressive display was about 100 ft long.
 We went on the Friday of the final weekend and after the initial crowd cleared, we pretty much had the place to ourselves.
Took my mum out to go wildflower looking last weekend. yes, in February. beautiful poppies, a few desert chickory [thank you to my lovely wife for doing the species research after we got back]
hopefully I get some of the pictures uploaded. oh yeah, I also had mom take a pic that I may use for my new profile pic. spoiler alert; I'm ageing, fat and white.

Done a lot of things in my life, a pen, pencil or tool in my hand has gotten me through a few tough times.
Some of my work is ok, most of it needs work. I am open to constructive criticism, but I may promptly do it my way anyway.
I do a lot of pencil sketching, I'm a decent photographer, learning ink and learning GIMP at the same time. wish I had time to take a sculpture class.
I have an idiosyncrasy where I usually capitalize the I in Idea.
Cant wait to meet you all.
