Confessions by a Soldier's Sister
"There’s just something about a man in a uniform."
Is there now? What is it about a man in a uniform? How does a simple uniform change a person? Why not say there’s something about a man in a fedora? But that’s just me. The truth is, as cliché and ambiguous as the phrase is, it’s also so darn true. There is something about a man in a uniform. On Friday night, for me, it was a slap in the face.
I don’t dislike men in uniform. I think a uniform makes a man look respectable and well put together. I come from a family of men in uniform. They are proud, strong, and dependable. I love men in uniform. So of all people, I was the last person expecting my reaction.
Friday was the night of the awards dinner to honor our veteran soldiers. I knew from the previous year that there would be wounded veterans present. I knew exactly what to expect. I knew until I stepped off the bus and caught my first flash of blue.
I think it was shock that kept the tears from falling.

I Saw You Alive
For a few minutes today,
I saw someone wear your face.
They spoke with your voice,
took my hand in yours,
and walked in that way only you know how.  
I asked questions I didn't care to hear answers to,
just to keep you there a little longer,
so my eyes could devour your being.
For a few minutes today,
you stood in my office.
And when the door shut on your retreating figure,
I remembered that we'd put you in the ground,
That there was only a cold, marble slab to hold,
And it was as if you'd died all over again.
But for a few minutes today,
I saw you alive.

Tea With Mr Wolf
What's the time Mr Wolf?
Why, blow me down!
Tea time already is it?
Come, sit with me sir
And tell me the news.
Last night our old friend Moon
(Flaunting her monthly curves)
Sat up in the sky and listened,
As you sang of
All you've seen and heard,
Recited word for word.
What a blessing it must be
To command such magnificent
Eyes and ears; so big!
(They dwarf the saucers)
I do declare that you, sir,
Could tell the hour a mile away.
Far as Lambkin's house perhaps?
Or even farther!
Oh Mr Wolf, see how neatly
You serve yourself and me
With tea, despite those hairy paws
Of yours; you'd think them clumsy.
Not so, not so!
This delicate silver table set
(An heirloom of my grandmama)
You handle quite dexterously...
Such poise! Not a drop spilt.
And by the way,
I must say, I have never seen
Manners impeccable as yours.
What a gentleman! If only
The Messes Pig next door
Could learn to fold a napkin
So precisely. And with such big paws!
But then again,
(Pass the sugar please)
Many times have I spi

Well Folks, 

I know I've been gone for ages! But it doesn't mean I've stopped art! Nope, I've been painting and drawing and writing away whilst living life. 

Anyway, the biggest news is that I am publishing my book! This has been a huge part of what I have been doing over the last few years. Super exciting to see it come together. Check out the project here: www.facebook.com/MKClarkbooks/

www.instagram.com/mkclarkbooks…

I've also been doing a web comic since last year. I married my awesome hubby, and the hilarity soon ensued. We decided we just couldn't let all that funny go to waste. You can read Black, White, and Gray here: tapastic.com/series/Black-Whit…

I will do my best to be more active :)
