    So............ looks like first link ( to Part 1 ) was flagged as persona non grata by the "banned" flag... it was a link to a pix of a Firebird flying over a pond near the woods for the ekphrastic poem I wrote... with these edits in mind I'll try to repost in the Nonsensical poem thread and see how it goes.

    who am I but a stitch in time
    what if I were to bare my soul
    would you see me origami

    No joy there nor here with the 3-poems grouped together... most puzzling... and I love puzzles

    As they are posted here (as in somewhere) in some form, I'll leave these poems as is and move on

    BTB - here's the message I receive:
    There seems to be a slight confusion on the part of the AS between adding content and stealing content. As for the adblock I also have one but the add appear all the same.

    legend of the firebird

    no one knows from whence it

    scouring the swampland and
    forests with flame - a relentless
    incandescence slaughtering
    and scattering what remained
    of tribes and families that day

    from the perspective of the
    firebird it was of necessity -
    a need to make a nest with
    which to brood her eggs in peace
    - soon hatchlings kept her busy
    in flight over great distances
    to feed her innocent little ones

    retribution, an invention of man,
    soon followed when a lone warrior
    returned to his ancestral grounds,
    steeling his courage he butchered
    the nestlings - using their remains
    to conceal himself as he sought to
    destroy their mother upon its return

    tears, amber-red, like an angry
    sun filtered through the eyes of the
    firebird in flight when the deceit was
    laid bare below her - and with the
    realization of the futility of striving
    with man she abandoned her nest
    and became lost once more to legend

    red are the waters that remain
    of the watershed whence these
    tidings came to pass - a testament
    to the tenacity of dour men, or per-
    haps the blood of innocents -+-*+

    Enjoyed the poem about this sad legend!

    Youth: a series of experimental offenses


    Guess I was in another experimental phase of my teenage years,

    thus having absconded with some of the neighbor lady’s eggs

    after accessing her coop by hopping a backyard fence

    I found myself grasping an imagined Fabergé egg - when in truth

    just a bespeckled egg mostly bereft of its dregs

    hence I flung it into into the air and shouldered my dad's 30-06 with uncovered ears

    ... then BOOM! ha! bet you could of heard it all the way in Duluth!

    it littered the yard and my hair with eggshell confetti - and praise be - it wasn't my last youthful offense

    salty mouthed “too”

    an existence within a cage
    for a salty mouthed cockatoo is droll
    for one whose wings are clipped

    thus flight is impossible which is perhaps best
    for a window pane is a bird’s bane -
    no reason to be vague about it

    best to be quiet while the “too” is asleep
    for when the dog hears the mailman’s rattle
    the fan is hit without a countdown

    Poor cockatoo!
