Both Don and Kath wrote a short poem for each painting, and during our spontaneous reading, back and forth, we realized it was a fine unconcious collaboration.Our poet friend CaLokie, center, was amused and delighted. Read the resulting poem "Where is the Motherwell"

Rick was quick to point out damage to the infrastructure, which made poetry in this location dangerous (photo by Kath)

Kath took dictation from CaLokie, we'll link to a whole set of CaLokie garden poems soon (photo by Rick)

A tree with a poet (much better)
