A beautiful, wild, wacky, smart, energetic, outgoing and generous woman I know who calls herself A. Dragon, runs a business she calls The Poet’s Way (check it out) out of her place in Massachusetts where she hosts retreats of various kinds. She also travels with pockets full of poems tucked in her Bard’s Medicine Pouch. The place is called The Fish Ranch Think Tank. I’ve never been there but when I found this postcard in New Mexico last week, and then discovered her name was next on my list of people to send my daily poem to, this came, dashed off on the card with no editing or amendments.
Lunch at the Fish Ranch (edited)
Abundant Chablis and wild caught devilish eggs
A platter of fine sliced poems served up raw
with marinated onions stewed in laughter
There are stories and dreams poured over
homemade ice cream, dark chocolate
and fishing poles waiting
to catch the next glittering star.
The postcard image is entitled “Adventuresome Caesar Salad” thus the inspiration.
