I enjoy the daily prompt. Some days it moves me to think on words that would not otherwise enter my mind. Here are some of the thoughts it invokes.
Lukewarm – I see a duckling being washed free of oil with Dawn dishwashing liquid.
Lukewarm – I envision a tepid bathtub of water that is not that appealing.
Lukewarm – My teenage years fumbling in the pursuit to please an expectant girlfriend.
Lukewarm – The Hot and Cold game played when searching for something. (This also applies to my previous interpretation.)
Lukewarm is a feeling for me more than diction or its definition of temperature. Not an intense feeling. More of an uncertain obscure word of searching for something just out of reach. Like this post I write, thinking my point may only be lukewarm in it’s delivery.
Silver the Silvermare ~ One of my first stainless steel sculptures
A big stash I have not
I have love to make art
Successful I am
To do what I want
Maybe money will find me
I’ll play my part
An artist I am
I’ll have or have not
~ Kevin A Moore
By loving your job, no matter what you do, you are an artist. When you pour positive energy into it, it shows and gives positive energy back. I find that admirable and I hope for people to see that in my work.

In this 2017 year all extra money and donations will go toward a steel and stainless steel Dragon 5 feet tall and 10 feet wide. ‘The Wallingford Dragon’ from which I hope to gain international acclaim.
My blog will contain and include my thoughts, my art, my poetry, my beliefs, my gripes, and as my domain states, the stream of consciousness thinking that I need to free from my brain! I will also try to convey where these writings come from to give you a look into my mind. I really do hope for your comments, but being MY blog I am reserving the right to remove those that offend my moral sensibility.
Although I believe most of my writing will be positive in nature, subjects may be offensive to some and may contain inappropriate language for the young.
I’m adding one of my poems from last week on facebook to see how it looks in blog, I think I will slowly add my full collection of poems here to have them together in one place.
Sincerely, Kevin A Moore
I am Dragon
I am Dragon
My passion it flows
Containing the fire
Turned to dust
I am Dragon is an example of my stream of consciousness poetry, I was introducing the creation of an upcoming sculpture so I found a photo. (the photo is of a small dragon that my sister gifted me for I believe a Christmas more than a decade ago, I still have it) Then I let my emotions of the day flow. My emotions are usually inspired by an event or a person I’m admiring, or if the emotions are negative, someone I’m admiring; not so much. In the case of I am Dragon the poem was written in seconds, although I did go back and edit for appearance. I find most times the depth, intensity, and meaning of the poem can be found in those impulsive first words. Dragon is named as the author so that you can put yourself in his head and understand his emotions.
