This is for Maureen, who slept in the closet during the poet meet...  She probably had the best spot in the house...

~Naked Thoughts In The Closet~





All across the villa
poets asleep everywhere
as the veil of night descends
creativity hangs thick in the sultry air

a house full of muses
their bodies at rest
but minds ever spinning unheard
writers of rhyme and verse, reflective but often absurd

imagery wanders through the night
weaving poems from dreams
words and visions and fragments of thought
wrapped in shafts of moonbeams

but cloistered deep in the closet
ensconced in quiescent repose
in this tiny cocoon inside the bedroom
Naked Thoughts rests beneath the clothes
~

Lyra...hugss and  thanks for  spending the last few hours with me before coming home.
It was a pleasure meeting both you and David..and I will never forget the enjoyable meal we shared. I have been a bit busy trying to sort my life out at the moment and  have just now begun to look through my photos and try to write  a poem that encompasses all we went through. I don't think I will be able to do the  gathering any justice, as  many of you have,  but thought I would try and do it in Ballad form...in one poem.  This was  cute, and despite what most think..I did have the best spot to sleep...even if it was a closet
Thanks again and give my best to David.

many hugsssss
Maureen

Thanks so much, Anne...  I wish you could've been there to enjoy all the fun also...
but Maureen got first dibs on the closet, which really was the best place in that house to sleep...  definitely the quietest with 14 poeple...
~ lots of chipmunk hugs

Thanks so much for the hugs, Marge...
This was so much fun... but of course, you and Bill and David and I, were lucky enough to get real bedrooms...

I'm so glad that you enjoyed this, Maureen...
Its taken me a while to get back here because I've been so busy...
We got back here late last Sunday night and on Monday morning I had to start radiation treatments in Ann Arbor... and now I'm doing physical therapy along with it...  so I don't have as much time as usual, but I'm hoping to put those crutches down in the basement permanently soon...
~ hugs from a chipmunk who iws working on getting her scamper back

Thanks so much, Michael...  It was so much fun getting to meet you in person and hearing you fall through the sofabed that night...
Maureen did have the best spot in the house, didn't she?
