Happy Father’s Day: When Sports and Poetry Collide

Happy Father's Day: When Sports and Poetry Collide!

Okay, I admit it. I’m not very athletic but I love a challenge and I love my athletic family. Two years ago, I was invited to create a “Postcard Secret” for a special exhibition at a local historical site. The challenge was to reveal a secret and to marry it with an image. This was my first attempt at using Photoshop Elements 7.0. Of course, I didn’t exactly follow the challenge instructions by revealing a secret but I discovered that poetry is more than words on a page or sound shared during an open mic reading. It can also be art displayed on a wall, on a bus, on a sports arena banner, or on a Father’s Day card. To all the athletic husbands who are also wonderful dads, may you discover that a little poetry isn’t so bad after all!
