    Nimble views from minds that flow
    Electric hues wash to and fro
    Artistic brushes hesitantly touch
    Symmetrical thoughts, mathematical rush
    An artist, a mother, a wife, a lover
    Paints what she wants most - to be another

    Spider(wo)man and spiderchild!
    You both are very talented. And I LOVE how articulate your youngest is. Don't you just love how they can say absolutely what they feel without filters. Priceless (and I usually think, why didn't I say that!) Carol, that line really should go in the scrapbook beside with the b'day pictures, along with Maggie's poem.

    What else have you written?

    Thanks, Chris. I don't write much at all, even though I enjoy it a lot. My husband got me Creative Writing for Dummies for my birthday this year... this is the most 'public' I've been by far.

    Here's a haiku to mark the occasion:

    Happy birthday, kid!
    Ripping open the presents
    Thanks for coming, 'nite!

    I'm pooped so I'm outta here for now. Gotta clean up and hide the leftover cake...

    Default I Read the News Today, Oh...

    A tip of my teacup
    Shreds my paper, the news a winter
    Boiling, tea cascading, dark brown
    Leaves blowing
    Red-coated girl.

    Cabaret convictions - pink thistles fuzzy against my cheek
    Peaches in cages to be teased, not squeezed
    But a message nonetheless, fingers weaving crushed grapes thru my hair.
    Melon.
    Smashed. Tea. Strained. Blood milk on my streets. My shin aches.

    Faster. I wish the train would speed up.
    Bring you home to me, my cuppa tea
    Come on.
    Why did a fast-food fabrication finish our frienship; are you dead too, my angel?
    There really are no heroes left - only the blood, redcoat. She is quiet.

    I hear no sweet, familiar whistle in the backround.
    White. Quiet.
    Finished.
    Iced tea, with watermelon, nice the ordinary, otherday
    Melon, squashed now. Tossed aside to ants; red.

    Whoa. How lovely the ordinary is. How horrid it is to be cast aside and forgotten. I hope you didn't lose anybody today, Bronte. Wishing you (and the world) peace.

    Amen to the child asleep.

    If I could hold peace, then

    Amen to the green swelling.

    Amen to fruit.

    Melon, for example.

    I have been on a long ride.

    Manhattan, for example.

    Queens.

    NJ tpk.

    No place I go is home.

    I’m very tired. My breath is more awake than my skin.

    Red. White. Black. Green means go.

    What do you see under your eyelids, lovely?

    Long islands.

    Amen.

    Sleep, children.

    I'll be home sometime.

    I'll be what kind of hero I can be.

    I'll sleep where I lie down.

    Amen.

    It's like a game of tag. I like it. I tried to do a poem on 'green' to further the connections but came up short. Let's just say you'll appreciate its absence on the forum. Not everything is worthy of our creative corner...

    Paul, keep writing! I enjoy it all, and check the site often to see what's new over here.

    Default Faith, hope, and love

    She built her fence without knowing it
    Each board a heartache, each nail a disappointment
    More rigid and higher it grew over time,
    A fortress to keep out more hurt

    He knew nothing of such strongholds
    And treaded sure-footedly on the grass
    Daring her to trust; convincing her to stay
    Without speaking at all

    No trespassing! she tried to sound
    But both she and her words fell silent, still
    All she could hear was His strength,
    His beliefs that she was worthy

    The footsteps grew closer
    And her mind fluttered with excuses, reasons, justifications
    For not loving again, for not believing
    But He did not see; He did not hear; He did not disappoint.

    And slowly, so slowly, the fence came down
    Heartaches and disappointments erased
    By a covenant unspoken,
    By the purest of loves.
