Art Hike

Some people walk the 500-mile Camino de Santiago trail in Spain, but in the heat and humidity, a few hours walking the dirt rock-strewn paths of the yearly Monte Sano Art Show in Huntsville, Alabama were penance enough for me.  For some reason, I took very few photos, but we saw some wonderful and whimsical sights, including the pieces and people shown below.

Pigs to hang upon the wall
that are not really pigs at all.

bottle caps and other metals,

As families start to walk away,
we also plan to end our day.

Eyes grow sleepy,

hairdos frizz.
This is the kind of day it is.

But as we leave the heat and fuss,
tender moments go home with us.

The End

Home for a nice swim and then out to Thai.  Perfect day that began with a hike.

Today’s WordPress prompt was Hike.

    I love your poems. This illustrated one made me smile. It reminded me a little of “Goodnight, Moon.” You could write and illustrate a children’s book.
