Good try, tears. Mine's on my Fish Pond. Words didn't do much for me today.

Slightly creepy:

Deadly crowd of teeth
Drawing blood
from angels' lips.

Yeah, but I like it . . . sounds like an opening verse, and I want to hear the rest!

That does summon some frightening images, hyper! Good job :twisted:

I've been absent a while...a lot going on...but managed to get a PIM done tonight...and hoping to get caught up on the other threads tomorrow ;)

Please don't place
plastic flowers
on my grave
to show that you
loved me--
let the green grass
and wild roses
grow above me.

Thanks for the concern... I'm supposed to be in NV this weekend to see a few people and right now all I want to do is spend a weekend alone. It's ironic that this is the one weekend I really need to be up so it's not wasted.

Passion's Captive

Touching the moment,
Uncovering life within,
the noise of the streets
softens to a waltz.
This sparrow

who comes to sit at my window

is a poetic truth more

than a natural one. ~William Carlos Williams

Awake
on a rainy night,
I sigh...so blue.
No moon
out there--
in here,
no you.

PIM 10/30/05

Strife shocks the moon
Moon and stars crash
From the fire of hopes
Life floats like rain
In Heaven

Mine today is too random. :(
Hope, Love, Dream

The night whispers
of wonder,
breathing life
into my dreams-
weaving between memory
and desire.

Really nice, lumin! I think I'd like it better without "it seems".
