    Next: sanguine, mystic, oblivion, déjà vu, spin, dispel

    A sanguine disposition...

    A sanguine disposition
    spins the coin in its fingers
    and dispels the dark thoughts.

    Bad experience is condemned
    to oblivion without deja vu.
    It's quietly optimistic,
    maybe mystic.

    Next: generation, enabling, amber, baby, friends, genealogy.

    Obs.Comments were erased during the editing process. Poem#721 interesting but rather dangerous.

    Challenge: generation, enabling, amber, baby, friends, genealogy

    another voice; the same plea

    'tis hoped for generationally, my
    friends and otherwise, in matters
    of all genealogies - that just because
    laws exist enabling the usage,
    hence the acquiring, of precious
    ambergris et al, politically, ethically,
    any which way, we take up the
    cause of universal conservation -
    that we continue the conversation
    so as to not throw the proverbial
    baby out with the bathwater and
    become the righteous stewards,
    eschewing ownership of all we
    survey, that we were destined to be

    Enjoyed the brevity and alliteration... personally, I like a little reclusion once in a while

    Challenge: letter, vivid, aroma, nutshell, strategic, AI

    in a nutshell

    in a nutshell our AI is strategic
    to the extreme... not always
    to the letter of the law - in fact
    vivid colors and even aromatic
    nuances accompany its death rays
    when our overlords counterattack

    Next: swirl, waterfall, sword fern, otter, owl, færies

    Note: I will be travelling soon, perhaps haphazardly, and may be incommunicado. Even when I return I may be offline due to possible severe snow accumulation and power outages... Time and circumstance will tell

    Next: swirl, waterfall, sword fern, otter, owl, færies

    Like a waterfall

    No wild metaphors
    No explosions of form
    Somewhere, sometimes lies fairyland.

    Crystalline waters
    carrying with themselves
    the games of Alice´s and Oz´s countries
    and the pranks of rag doll Emilia...
    Otters, owls, onças, pink dolphins
    faeries, gnomes, saçis, playfull spirits all
    Somewhere a cat dissolves in his own smile
    Somewhere children travel in the sky or visit the magic reign
    at the botton of the sea.
    Somewhere Puck casts his magic spell
    on those that slumber with eyes wide open.
    Not to forget the cranky Sci-fi worlds

    Swirling down the waterfall
    They all beckon to you.

    Sword fern or starry skies
    A magic landscape
    awaits them and you!

    Next: travel, sun, luggage, prairie, landscapes, spring.

    Ah, the trip: "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, (I) had everything before (me), (I) had nothing before (me), (I was) going direct to Heaven, (I was) going direct the other way – in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only." In short: I survived through the grace of God and shall never be the same again.

    The weather on returning home was gratefully mild... our forecast was for 0 - 2+ meters of snow and we were just above 0.00 m - though my home was 43° F (6° C) inside when I arrived due to my kitties'-sitter not being able to keep a fire going in the wood stove (kitties survived)

    Love, love, love your poem! (I bow)

    Welcome back, tailor!This must have been a very special trip for you. Glad you survived and that the kitties survived your absence and a cold stove. As you saw you were missed on Litnet too.

    Thanks for you albeit exaggerated prize . Curious about your next poem,

    Challenge: travel, sun, luggage, prairie, landscapes, spring

    the staycation

    planning a simple staycation this spring
    departing nowhere and everywhere with
    no luggage nor mental baggage to bring
    to prairies, mountains, and landscapes of myth
    to bask in a sun of my own making

    Next: time, fall, fawn, rusalka, woodland, guide

    Anti Tourist Guide

    The time is the fall
    the place- the sea
    on the more secluded side
    of imaginaria.

    Emerged from the nearby wood
    A golden fawn
    wonders
    at her own image
    trembling in the water
    agitated by the sombre humor
    of the rusalka.

    Next: whirlwind, shadow, dance, entertainment, rickshaw, elegiac.

    daimon in the rough

    writing with an elegiac grace
    perforce a whirlwind of
    brickshawl patterned
    shadow dancing with a vibrancy
    lacking in any entertainment value
    I seek something more organic
    in nature - more a resonance to
    reign in daimonic demands

    An Elysian Fortnigh
    I love hollidays on the countryside
    where blackberries grow
    and vases are unnecessary
    because the flowers grow
    freely in the fields.
    And shadows of sigilous trees
    lean over the dusty paths,

    Next:limp, natural, harrowing, stars, venture,endeavor.
