A Mendocino Bulletin Board

July 29, 2014


a ocean-weathered fence
serves as a makeshift
bulletin board

stapled posters and fliers
of events happening now
or in the near future

dog-eared announcements
in differing colors and fonts
all designed to appeal

the ocean breeze animates
the corners of letter-size paper
they wave and beckon me closer

read me
read me
read me

Flynn Creek Circus
laughs and thrills
for all ages

Mendocino Street Fair
local artists displaying original
work in a variety of mediums

other posters blur together
into a big kaleidoscope
of words and messages

Summer Camp
Donation Sunset Yoga
Imagination and Creativity

Creative Kids
Chubby’s Kitchen
Not-so-simple Living Fair

Mendocino Art Center
Fund Raiser Breakfast
Mendocino Coast Writers Conference

my wife calls to me
as she leaves
the Gallery Bookshop

time to go

  1. How unexpected! A very vivid poem, all from a bulletin board. =)
