Versatile Blogger Award

EER_0675

Chipmunks are very versatile creatures. They are smart enough to realize if they wait to eat their food they will have more in the end. So, they stuff their cheeks with as many seeds as they can and take them back to their home. This little guy lives under my deck I see him in my feeder a couple of times a day getting stocked up. He knows how to adapt to whatever environment he lives in. This is true of us poets  in the same way. We grab bits of inspiration when they are available and like the chipmunk stuff as many thoughts as we can in our brain to carry back to our computer.

I would like to thank https://emotionalnotions.wordpress.com/  for nominating me for the Versatile Blogger Award. It is wonderful to be connected to a group such as this one where art and poetry can become a daily stimulation.

If you choose to accept this nomination for the Versatile Blogger Award you will need to do the following:

  • Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly. ( I would add, pick blogs or bloggers that are excellent!)
