I can’t think of any poetry more perfectly drenched in metaphor & as sensually delightful than Holly’s.
I can’t think of something more perfect to follow my previous post, Frank’s “Beach Walk Reflections”. I’m closing comments, so if you want to say something about the poem, do it on Holly’s blog!
Here’s reflecting on you, kid!
When it is strikes close to home, lightening can be dangerous, terrifying.
Powerful enough for your heart to skip beats
Incongruous with the morning’s sunshine
… and we all know what comes after lightening

For Dale, my pal Thunder
I was out looking for a different mural, that I’d heard about.
The rose caught the corner of my eye.
It was on a side street, and “le gasp” when I saw the entire piece.
Needless to say I was sidetracked, and forgot about the other mural.
Interesting… one of the artists, I would say the face artist, is the same artist who painted Scheheraholly.
Strength to all!

I became very confused when I found this illustration of Frida Kahlo in the street.
You see, she’s wearing a daft punk t-shirt, and has tattoos. Did she have tattoos? I don’t think so!
What’s a daft punk? There was no shop or restaurant nearby, that was named daft punk. Good thing, because how dare they use her image to promote themselves!
Turns out daft punk is a band. Also, turns out that the piece is by an artist named Fabian Ciraolo. He does illustrations that mash up old and new pop culture. I’m not sure what I think, but I am provoked.

House of Heart has a really lovely post up right now. If you like Frida, check it out!! Frida Kahlo and Nicholas Muray
Also, you will find at the end of a most informative post, a stunning poem by; Holly Rene Hunter.
This doorway mural was painted during the onset of the lockdown.
Hi! Here I am first time out socially, in 12 weeks. It was great to see 2 family members.
I’ve decided to grow out my grey hair. That thing in the centre of my chest is a bottle of hand sanitizer on a lanyard. I wear OS men’s shirts as a form of PPE. I hand painted my mask.
I’ve been reading more than usual. Check out my Art Gowns review of 5 of Shehanne Moore’s Historical Romance novels, by clicking on the book cover below!
I can’t get enough of gowns, especially in a romantic historic setting . I can’t get enough of street art.
There must be a correlation?
I also enjoyed reading Mike Steeden’s The Blue-Eyed Cat
Let me know what you’ve enjoyed reading during your time on hold!

Here’s a promo for Mike Steeden’s new book; The Snow White Tigress. It was made by George, over at Zoolon Hub If you are a writer, and would like a promo made with original music, check him out! Very reasonable prices.
I’m staying home, mostly. I’ve got a myriad of creative projects on the go & 2 cats to boss me around.
Pasted on the inside, you can see the glue around the edges.
I adore all of the rich details.
Lo and behold, there was the beauty, again, in Graffiti Alley. I had just finished shooting what I posted yesterday.
Again, pasted-up, this time on what seems a mud cloth pattern.
There’s more art along this wall, but I’m skipping to the end of the alley. I make a right turn, into a scaffold tunnel. It’s mostly filled with writing, and there’s not enough space to back up and photo each piece.
In this narrow tunnel, I find the beauty, again. However, this time it’s a totally new version of the paste-up.
I squished in some angled shots, as there was no room to back up for a dead on.
The details are fantastic.
