BLIZZARD OF '78 by Kelly Wantuch

Crawling out the lace-frosted
Apartment window on that fifth
Snow-day, venturing cautiously
Atop Pintos and station wagons
Frozen in place in the parking lot,
To visit my best buddy Scott’s
Home to see if he could come out
To play. All week we built snow forts
And created tunnels of mazes.
With our rolled red plastic sleds
We followed our foot-plowed trail to
The hill behind Peddler’s Village.
He liked to run ahead of me
So he could catch my face with a
Snowball. I laughed because I would
Always get him back- so much worse.

The hill shined with long stripes of packed
Snow christened from the day before.
For added speed we laid on top
Of each other blasting ... faster
Down... over and over again.
Layers infused sled,clothes,bodies, heat, arousement
That permeated life right through me.

The snow pile melted well into
The month of June while my Barbie
Never quite looked at Ken, the same.

Lady Be Good to Me -Clark Terry (my favorite trumpet player)

I was so fortunate enough to enjoy lunch with him a few months before he passed away.

Close Up Tight- Bill Chase

Put this in a poem and smoke it!

Facebook Friend's Color Choice Painting by Kelly Wantuch

I was feeling bored so I asked my Facebook friends on what colors I should use in my next painting. I took the first 4 suggestions and gave it a try. I would never think to put these colors together, but I was up for the challenge. The colors were British racing green, Blood red, Ochre, and Fuschia. The scan turned out a little dark though.
