Poetry Honorable Mention:

“Where Sagebrush Grows” – Darin Brookman, Author

Said Scorpion To The T’rantula

“Oh woe is me.” the Scarab cried,
“My life could not be worse.
To toil each day in dung and dirt
Seems my eternal curse.

“The Bob White and the Chaparral
Both taunt me ever’ day.
They think themselves so righteous
That I know what they must say.”

“Each day I do the same foul deed
In wind or heat or rain.
What have I done so terrible
To bring myself such pain?”

“Oh happy day!” his brother cried,
“I have been truly blessed.
To have a talent so unique
No other bugs possess.”

“The Bob White and the Chaparral
Both sing for me each day.
Unselfishly they serenade
As I roll on my way.”

“If rain or sun or wind or calm
Each day holds something new.
What have I done to gain such grace
Have purpose known to few?”

Asked Scorpion (who’d heard them both),
“Friend T’rantula do tell,
How one could see his life as grand
The other as pure hell?”

Said T’rantula, “The way it looks
From this rock where I sit,
It counts not what life makes of you
But what you make of it.”
