The horns of a dilemma at home.

I put down the camera,
And pick up the pen.
Then put down the pen,
And pick up the camera again.

Canít you just see what,
A predicament Iím in?
Iím stuck between mediums,
This dilemma must end.

Go out for a walk with my camera,
Yes, thatís what Iíll do.
But it's no answer to my dilemma,
Thereís a rock in my shoe.

So back I go,
To my little den.
I put down the camera,
And look at my pen.

Way to go Walt
I enjoy my poetry reading, writing it
and reviewing others who feel the same
I too like my camera, a photo kind of Ham I am
Peace Walt

Walt, follow your artistic heart to the one that is pulling with the strongest emotions -- It is possible to share between the two and impart equal passion to both -- in the end it is all about the joy of living -- I bid you joy love and peace my dear friend -- Jon Michael

BigGrin! I have this dilemma all the time, Walt. I'm a quarter mile from Rocky Mountain National Park and have a 7x7 bull elk peaking in my window right now. Should I write about it, or go for my camera and risk scaring it off? Terry

Either way, you'll have treasures to share with us Walt!!!
