Mlou,

Your #2 piece is lovely. It took me a few tries to get the sense of the #1 piece, but that was my failing not yours.

Ebony Nights

A single breath can quell the flame
of a solitary candle,
but in the darkness there remains
a frantic echo of the sun.

Interesting fact: A group of starlings is called a murmuration.

and, I believe starlings are called starlings because they resemble a small five-pointed star when in flight.

Ralph Fiennes reading W.H. Auden (Song of the Devil) on the cd that came with the book "Catching Life by the Throat" by Josephine Hart.

I wish they had Ralph read Yeats instead of having Bob Geldorf read him ...

In answer to your questions: 1. I'm not sure, but it makes me think of "Romancing the Stone" which was a lovely comedic romance. 2. The only attractive male anatomy I have ever seen belonged to my first husband ... rather like a text book illustration only jaunty. Everyone else's reminds me more of ...

You're right I need to get in there and exercise. Maybe I can get the cobwebs out of my brain.

Interesting challenges and lovely responses. Wish I had the time and/or state of mine to contribute.

However, my writer's block has reached the point that I am stuck on starting a memo for my business communications class. urg.

#2 Late Winter Blues When lingering cold drains strength and will even winter wearies and longs to leave. We dream of a warm mid-summer’s idyll when lingering cold drains strength and will. Still trees are bare and snow clings upon the hill and warmth is a dream we dare not believe. When lingering c...

Gee, ms, I did look at the challenge and even gave it some thought. But that word list made my thoughts impure ... as soon as I can get them at least PG I'll try again.

Elle, as a piece that you admit was written "spur of the moment" it is adequate.

So, it's not that I don't like it.

I like the fact that you entered the challenge and now I am extending an invitation to "up the challenge" a bit and submit some work you have polished a bit.

Xanax Shuffle

There is an anxious beast
rooting through my chest.
With its callous knotted snout
it prods and pokes seeking
those tender shoots not yet
wounded by time's hard fall.
They waver in the beasts's foul
breath, a brief dance of death.

February Song

"With white frost gone, And all green dreams not worth much"-Sylvia Plath

Late Winter, you idle sloth, you barely rate
as a season at all; nothing but dun and chill
where green is yet a far off destination
and white glister has fled for colder climes.
