One End & Two Beginnings

End #1… Creative Writing class is over for the semester people! That means this group experiment is over! Done! We are so grateful for all of our followers and 1,100+ hits since August! Wow! Final numbers will be analyzed tonight, but we think our blog is going to be ranked the highest among our classmates blogs!

Beginning #1 … What will happen with this blog?!

Stay tuned! Both ck and SavannahSmiles will decide this week. One (or both) of us will be be keeper of PhotoandaPhrase. And chapter two will be launched.

Beginning #2 … What is HouseKelley and when can I view it?!

My husband and I have been creatively energized by writing this past few months. We have decided to continue this, hobby, if you will. After the new year, we are going to launch HouseKelley!

There you will find weekly and monthly writing challenges that we will publish online. We will challenge each other, co-write stories and post a photo or two. And dare I say it?! There might be poetry.


It’s been a pleasure getting to know all of our followers via wordpress!

cheers, ck


A Simmerman Poem

I would like to share a poem with you that I created for a creative writing class.

I won’t share the rules, as much as I like rules.

Please enjoy, can’t see how you couldn’t! 🙂

The Seduction of John Johnson

1. She is a picture of beauty,

2. a home wrecker sent from the heavens.

3. Red, plump, honey lips drip down his neck.

Leans amble bosom to quivering chest

whispering sweet promises in his ear,

as freshly spritzed perfume assaults him.

4. Candied giggles glazing better judgment.

5. Focus. Thomas Jefferson. Des Moines, Iowa:

6. Forget better judgment.

7. Bills, kids, wife: use better judgment.

8. DDG, she’s as perfect as can be.

9. Because he thought about it, he must have already done it?

10. Que sera, sera to seal away the guilt.

11. The crimson blood of desire beats in his chest.

12. His thoughts pour as clean and pure as wastewater.

13. He ripped the sun from the sky to hide their sins in darkness.

14. Johnny Johnson was thinking naughty thoughts,

15. and tomorrow they will wake in each other’s guilty arms;

16. tainted bodies and painted thoughts on memory’s wall:

17. artwork for the world to see once they see no more.

18. Amata da uno, amata da nessuno.

19. The bed sheets cry out for forgiveness.

20. And the mistress leaves no trail.

ps.  If your kids are in the room and you are searching for a picture to enhance your blog…don’t google the word mistress.  Just an FYI…
