Intense Observation * (tanka)

keen eyes watching me~

with every bite that’s taken~

focus never shifts~

persistent hunger prevails~

no denying them a taste

*Note: These are my boy boys, Charlie the beagle and Wesley the beagle/lab. Their love is unconditional, they make my worst day a good day. Save a dog and adopt. Yes, I have a doggie song too. 😁

*Note: but I will add to the above, it is definitely an adventure. Enjoy the song, I chose the original recording by Tom Cochrane (I enjoy his vocals and style) from his album Mad Mad World, although many only know the Rascal Flatts cover from the soundtrack of the Pixar’s movie Cars.

Belle Star *

oh she liked him fine,

they had some good times.

the relationship was chancy,

but he tickled her fancy.

he’d tell her she had great legs,

then demand steak n eggs.

belle wasn’t the domestic type,

it was a mistake for him to grip.

he seemed to not remember,

she had quite an evil temper.

Belle liked being in total control,

warned him about it awhile ago.

he realized he ruffled her feathers,

when she uncoiled the leather

Belle whipped her man into shape,

he fell to the floor struggling to escape

he knew he’d beg her forgiveness,

because his love for her was a sickness.

Belle told him she’d never wed,

she just liked toying with him in bed.

So goes the tale of Belle

and her man.

Some information on the artist Ernest Chiriraka 1913 – 2010 – Known for:  Indian-frontier genre painting, pulp novel illustration. His history of becoming an artist is an interesting read. I’m adding a link to his bio below.

Clock Works (Acrostic)*

The illusion manifests

In places where gray matter divides

Melding logic creatively in art

Embrace where you are now

Less you blink the moments gone

You will never gain a second chance

*Note: Many know the Kinks for either YouReallyGotMe or Lola. I’ve chosen this song for its lyrics and creative video design.

Among numerous honours, they received the Ivor Novello Award for “Outstanding Service to British Music”. In 1990, the original four members of The Kinks were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, as well as the UK Music Hall of Fame in November 2005. The Kinks are regarded as one of the most influential rock acts of the 1960s and early 1970s.[3][4] Stephen Thomas Erlewine called them “one of the most influential bands of the British Invasion”.[3] They were ranked 65th on Rolling Stone magazine’s “100 Greatest Artists of All Time” list.[189]

Artists influenced by the Kinks include punk rock groups such as the Ramones,[190] The Clash,[191] Blondie,[192] and The Jam,[193] heavy metal acts including Van Halen and Britpop groups such as Oasis, Blur and Pulp.[3] Craig Nicholls, singer and guitarist of The Vines, described the Kinks as “great songwriters, so underrated”.[194] Pete Townshend, guitarist with the Kinks’ contemporaries The Who, credited Ray Davies with inventing “a new kind of poetry and a new kind of language for pop writing that influenced me from the very, very, very beginning.”[195] Jon Savage wrote that The Kinks were an influence on late 1960s American psychedelic rock groups “like The Doors, Love and Jefferson Airplane”.[68] Music writers and other musicians have acknowledged the influence of the Kinks on the development of hard rock and heavy metal. If you wish to know more I have posted a link to Wikipedia.
