My newest adventure is underway. It has lead me to take up residency in a new blog,
Like the Feathers of an Arrow (affectionately known as LFA).

6 Reference Call

What three words
would you use to describe him?

like a nascar racer
engine full-throttle
one single goal in mind
edging close to inside of the track
constantly looking for the opening
and the checkered flag

like a Doberman Pinscher
honed, intelligent, and aggressive
one single focus in mind
keeping a close eye on its territory
constantly on the alert
and ready to protect and serve

like a bounty hunter
trained and armed
one single aim in mind
itching to get close to its prey
constantly vigilant
and looking for his pay day

His greatest strength?

He knows what he wants
and he's not afraid 
to go after it

His greatest weakness?

He has two 
and a full moon.

Your recommendation?

If you're looking to move up in the world,
interested in material goods and wealth,
willing to contend with late nights and lonely dinners,
he's your man.

If you're looking to be given the moon, stars and skies,
interested in being pampered and doted on,
hoping to wined and dined late into the night,
marry someone else.

i have no idea from whence this loosely fits the theme that inspired it from Jingle Poetry's Poetry Potluck [Aims, Goals, and Ambitions].  but it was fun to write.  i can't quite explain the weaknesses part except, during my brief research i came across the top ten worst interview questions and they gave the witty answer i admittingly stole.  and if i ever go on an interview again and get asked that question i will probably forget to steal it again...  maybe i'll sift through some of my older posts to see if i can find a more suited piece or maybe i'll be inspired yet again...who knows...


  1. This is a great idea. I can tell you had fun with it, as I had fun reading it. Good metaphors.

  2. love the way you wrote this.. thank you for sharing.. here's my potluck..

  3. The best stuff comes from that place, where we don't know where it came from, that muse speaking through us.

  4. deep words,
    very lovely flow.

    Thanks for sharing.

  5. I like this a lot...the last two stanzas are priceless. Well done.

  6. Chuckles. This is probably the most ingenious of all I've read this evening. Thanks for the smiles ...

    And doesn't the whole job-search thing get old after awhile??!!
