Camping Outside of Tucson

desert sun dry cactus garden

among Tucson Mountains

saguaro pierce horizon

patronly beckon you

another hundred years

we will stand stoic

leave our skeleton on desert floor

beneath the Sleeping Man

Camping Outside of Tucson


Geocaching I haven’t tried. It uses geo positioning to find hidden treasure. Once you have found a hidden treasure, you leave a record of your find, take a souvenir and leave something in exchange. Sounds simple enough and must be fun and another outdoor activity.

Enter the concept of wordcaching. It sounds like fun and another April poetry writing adventure. Here is how it will work:

Write a poem (less than 100 words). Tag the poem with wordcaching. Starting April 1 search on WordPress for wordcaching. Take one word from someone’s poem and leave them a word to replace it. Leave a comment such as I am taking _______ and leaving _______. The word taken must be removed by the author and the new word put in its place.

With the word you take from other peoples’ poem make a new poem and tag with wordcaching.

This continues until April 30 and at that point all poems are considered finished. With all poems tagged wordcaching this should create a list of all the cached poems.

Sound like fun. Let’s see if it works.
