    ...And Lights...
    Poor walker, tell of the ways you go.
    The world's your oyster.
    The pearl's in front of you.
    The strawberry scents you smell are not a dream
    Nor is the water you see and long for.
    Tantalus walking, Tantalus walking.
    Poor rich boy, tell of the life you waste.
    The world's your shitter.
    The paper isn't there.
    The crippling fear is real.
    The feelings of defeat are true.
    Tantalus winning, Tantalus winning.
    Poor lady, tell of your thoughts.
    The obfuscation is frustrating.
    The enigma must be cleared.
    This mental leng t'che cannot continue
    Nor can the threats of mystery.
    Atlas dropping, Atlas dropping.
    My favorite bands can kick your favorite bands' asses.

    The horizon is right and motionless like the EKG of a dying woman.

    I just can't take this!!! He's leaving!!



    The Hand on the Hilt


    We cut him out this way

    Like a precious cloth.

    All of my love into every stitch

    All of my life

    for that love

    But this our aim

    Now,

    I DESPISE OUR GOAL!!!!!!

    We worked so hard

    She, He and I

    And made him a great young man

    Now,

    He leaves to live his life

    He tears my heart as he goes

    But he has no malice

    He is doing just as we prepared him to do.

    He will do it well

    This

    I know!




    They say only women have ‘empty nest syndrome.”

    I feel I have “empty soul disease.”

    It feels terminal.

    For so long

    I was “Locke’s father.”

    Now I am just me, and with she…we

    As we were, 18 years ago.

    It’s tough to pull a knife

    From your own heart

    and find

    Only YOUR fingerprints on the hilt

    The day I knew of has come

    College: danger and discovery

    The distance vast

    The pain copious

    1000 miles seems half a world away

    But I knew when I started

    If I did it right

    My world would crumble away

    The doctor told us “no real chance to have a child”

    “One in a million”

    Our odds came in on July 4th 1990

    Our “One in a million” was 8 pounds, 10 ounces

    Now, at 6’0” 240 pounds

    Our “one in a million”

    Becomes

    “One OF millions”





    “Give me the sense to wonder, to wonder if I'm free."

    Thank you. I reckon I should not have posted it here but I wasn't thinking straight at that time.

    Thank you for noticing.

    Locke is a lucky man! And you are a lucky Dad! He's a great kid!!

    Indigo, Icicle, Castle

    The slow and steady drip, drip, drip
    Of the icicle, so cold
    Into the river flowing below.

    The castle, so regal
    So sturdy and strong, reflecting
    Into the river flowing below

    The indigo sky
    So alluring and pure, setting
    Into the river flowing below.
    Promise me you'll always remember: You're braver than you believe, stronger than you seem and smarter than you think.

    SOUL


    With blue eyes, cold as ice

    The belly dancer removes her veil

    The veil becomes a swirling indigo storm

    There is none so fair in the Sultan castle

    There are no eyes so lifeless in his abode




    “Give me the sense to wonder, to wonder if I'm free."

    Jon, as a father with twin daughter's in their first year of college, I feel your pain. This poem spoke to me.

    Congratulations, Browning's_Childe! Kids are great in general but twins truly rock! Yup, mine are coming up on 19 years old (May 30th.) Both in college.

    I know you've probably heard this before, Browning's_Childe, but TAKE A LOT OF PICTURES. The time goes by so fast. It may not seem like it now but you will look up one day in (what feel's like a week) and they will be going off to college. People told me and I was like "Yeah, right." But it is the truth.
    Grrr...

    Thanks, we do take alot of pics. In fact we were getting ready to get some more studio pics, but one of the twins bit the other,(in the face) so now we have to wait a few days.
    They love each other so much it hurts.

    Ha! Yes, "Love bites." They all go through that. I suggest you get the pictures with the bite showing. It'll be a great talking point later on.

    Indigo, Icicle, Castle

    Behind castle walls
    Of stony silence
    And marble recalcitrance
    Flows a winter sky
    Twisted and torqued
    Pouring through the prism
    Of the melting icicle’s heart
    Where a farrago of colors
    Hinting of durum wheat
    And sultry lilacs
    Swirl around a nebulous heart
    Of indigo blue
    Promising a cascade
    Of cool spring waters
    Grrr...

    Let;s review Letti and Ms. O's instructions..

    ""Someone who wasn't in the same gave us 3 words. Always 3. And we could write a poem about everything but those 3 words had to be in it.
    For example:
    - wing
    - tear
    - petal
    It was amazing to see what people could create around the same words. Sometimes they were very similar to each other but sometimes they were very different... one of us wrote about life and the other wrote about death..
    See?"


    So, what we'll do is I'll post 3 words, let people create a poem with those 3 words... when it seems to have been exhausted, we'll pick 3 more words...
    READY???

    So lets try:

    Moon
    remove
    infinite
    “Give me the sense to wonder, to wonder if I'm free."

    Here goes nothing

    Moon, Remove, Infinite

    Through the Thinny:
    No sun to carve out dusk and dawn
    The moon removed and landmarks gone
    I trudge to find the end of it
    And pray it is not infinite
