The Lost Art of Archery

The lost art of archery
can be practiced at seaside
in rented cottages.

First, open all windows.
Then, enlist a confederate.
(Fashion wig optional.)

One of you must be an artist;
the other, a patient on day pass.
The difference is slight.

Break boredom.
Impress crushes!
Secure random objects to pastel walls 

at will, at all hours of afternoon. 
______

for MZ's words count

Oh the art of free spirits! Yes, I'll take that fashion wig thank you. And create until the afternoon sun sets into night, by the light of the dancing moon...Thanks for sharing.

The ever so slight difference between a patient on a dayshift and the artist... love that. Archery sounds like something to practice.

That third stanza is just priceless!

"The difference is slight..' I love that. This flies like an arrow and hums like a bee, but the sting is in the target practice.

I agree with MZ--that 3rd stanza is a gem. Also "Impress crushes!"

I guess retirement agrees with you? Or has it not happened yet?
