Lovers’ Fields to How to Find Food in the Wild 

Some wander the fields to find love 

Some wander the fields to find food (or laughs) 


Lovers’ Fields (villanelle) 

What blossoms flowers put upon display
To add a touch of beauty to the air
In fields where lovers come to spend their day
-
If I were now to reach what would you say
Will I still see the sun or bleak despair
What blossoms flowers put upon display
-
A chance perhaps a moment just to stray
Who knows what special memories may flare
In fields where lovers come to spend their day
-
My heart is offered up to pave the way
To splendors which your beauty will make rare
What blossoms flowers put upon display
-
And if your answer causes some dismay
A dream of sadness will be waiting there
In fields where lovers come to spend their day
-
So take my hand and lay all else away
That for this while the two of us may share
What blossoms flowers put upon display
In fields where lovers come to spend their day


(It has been a while since we had a villanelle, Let me share two little insights. Flowers can mean flowers or lovers. Fields can also mean imagination or places where hearts stroll. With these two insights, what else is hidden in this villanelle? - I mentioned these two things because Arlene and I were the flowers and our life together was one of the fields. We were never financially rich, but we had more than our share of luck. Somehow we ram into people and situations that would open up opportunities. One of these opportunities was a trip to Savannah, Georgia for a Halloween weekend. We stumbled into a deal we couldn't pass up. Savannah was beautiful. We signed up for the ghost tours, but a young hotel desk clerk suggested we might enjoy the fraternity parties, that were going on more. We took his suggestion and for two nights Arlene and I were uninvited, but welcome guests (thanks to the dancing), at countless parties. How we got around or back to the hotel is still unclear. But it was all free, it was fun and the clerk couldn't have been more right. On the airplane trip back home, I apologized to Arlene, we didn't see any ghosts. She kissed me and said, "Are you sure we didn't see any?")

Is anyone hungry 


As of 2014, it was estimated that 40% of McDonald’s profits come from the sales of Happy Meals. Now, one won't find McDonald's Happy Meals outdoors, growing in the wild. We're hungry. We're outside, What are we gonna do? Maybe Gregg. at You Suck At Cooking, can help us out. Wait a minute. We're already outside. We're hungry. Can Gregg show us how to find some food or at least how to recharge our cell phone (so we can enjoy more of Martin's poetry)? 
We better watch the video or find the nearest McDonald's, before we go more crazy. "How to Find Food in the Wild - You Suck at Cooking (episode 16)"
