Beginning to Paint

Father stabs and slashes the storm onto canvas
as if he’s still conducting an orchestra.
The horizon bleeds into the sea.
He turns and smiles, mother would be proud.

    Wonderful on so many levels. The joy of Father painting, the "storm" of dementia, the echo of a beloved profession, approaching the end-of-life horizon, and the return to source. That is what I see. A pie'ce de resistance. Thank you.

    This one really made me pause and read and reread. It's dark and lovely. The one line haiku is outstanding in its suggestion of cremation. Or, well, that's my interpretation.

    Cheats were a big factor of gambling at the past but are not as readily available now. Instead many matches include"Easter eggs," or concealed items, which can be enjoyable to see or play . This levels the playing area so that everybody can play based on abilities rather than cheat codes.

    Avoid buying the costly edition of games, unless they are a favorite. Many times, video games will have a special edition, but it isn't necessary to have in order to play the game. By not purchasing the special edition you can save money on the video game and still enjoy it.
