Who goes there? Wolf or a coyote?

Artist: Cash Akoza

I’m a coyote, but I’m practicing to be a wolf.

Not so fast little buddy! I’m going to ask my cousin Wilbear. He lives on a shipping container across town.

Artist: Cash Akoza

Howdy Beary! I’d say he’s a coyote.

Artist: Cash Akoza

Well, maybe you guys aren’t Grizzly Bears?

Artist: Cash Akoza

 As sure as you and Beary live in the same mural, Beary and I are grizzlies. I’d like to add if people click on the mural above, they can see how splendid it is.

Can you name of these toy characters? Better yet did you have any of them or purchase any of these for kids?

I’m confident you identified the Star Wars characters as C-3PO, R2D2, Yoda, and the X-Wing fighter flown by the Rebel Alliance. Did you get Strawberry Shortcake holding the Spirograph wheel and the bear she made from Play-Doh? Cheer Bear (one of the original Care Bears)? Stay Puft Marshmallow Man (from Ghostbusters) on Batman’s back?

Surely you got Mr. Potato Head! But, did you recognize The Purple Pieman feeding a pie from the Easy Bake Oven to the T-Rex from Jurassic Park? The fury animal from the Littlest Pet Shop in the Ghostbusters’ vehicle? The character and car from M.A.S.K. (Mobile Armored Strike Kommand)?

This ArtWorks mural – Cincinnati’s Toy Heritage – located at 23 West Court Street in downtown Cincinnati – is a tribute to Kenner Toys –…

A Wolf Inspires a Poem for Kids’ Month

Much love to you dear Christy, for sharing your talent here on Kids’ Month. This poem is truly inspired, and you are a hero to me. I also thank you (and Aquileana) for making me aware of “Let Girls Learn”. It is one of the charities I am supporting here,on KM!

Poetic Parfait

Hi all! This new poem called “Challenge” gets its inspiration from a particular piece of street art depicting a wolf. The amazing artwork was photographed by Resa of Graffiti Lux and Murals, as part of Kids’ Month. Resa has taken photos of wonderful youth-friendly street art and asked for submissions of poetry and short stories to accompany them throughout the month of March. I’m happy to be a part of the exciting project this year! You can participate too by following the link above.

This wolf art caught my eye with its bright colors and wonderful details. The artist is Cash Akoza.

And here is the poem that stirred in my mind as I looked at the wolf street art:

Challenge

You’re a lone wolf,
Away from the pack and
Savoring a fearless thought,
Blue eyes intent on the path…
