Short poems and a good thought to share

Good thought:

"If there are one or more people on your friends list who make your world a better place just because they exist, and who you would not have met (in real life or not) without the Internet, then post this same sentence in your journal."


Lots of  good folk here and other places online I would not have met otherwise, and I appreciate you all!

Now for some poems:

In honor of the time of year:

Fire Season

Come mountain summer,
green, then brown amid the rock --
blue sky yields to smoke
beneath the dry thundercloud
flashing heat bursts into flame.

For ZachtheHurricane, a friend of mine on DA, who's finally posting some of his writing:

To Z

The poet pauses,
eyes growing distant with thought,
chasing the right word.

How sound becomes shape,
words, images of power,
melodic motion.

Pause long - it is gone
on gossamer wings of flight
unless you write it


And of course, I had to write something based on the InuYasha cosmos:

Shikon no Tama

Wishes are not free -
You may ask what you desire,
But will it be right?
All is filtered through its soul -
Ask wrongly and pay the price.

You Are a Realist



You don't see the glass as half empty or half full. You see what's exactly in the glass.

You never try to make a bad situation seem better than it is...

But you also never sabotage any good things you have going on.

You are brutally honest in your assessments of situations - and this always seems to help you cope.



Somehow, I suspect life experience and maturity play a role here....

You Are A Fir Tree



You love anything beautiful, and you have extraordinary taste.

And while it's hard for you to trust, you care deeply for those close to you.

You are a social butterfly, and you have many friends.

You handle stress well - and you are a master at relaxing after a hard day.

Overall, you are modest, talented, unselfish, and very reliable.





You Are: 70% Dog, 30% Cat



You and dogs definitely have a lot in common.

You're both goofy, happy, and content with the small things in life.

However, you're definitely not as needy as the average dog. You need your down time occasionally.





Your Mind is 32% Cluttered



Your mind is very free. You've liberated yourself from most worries and problems.

And even if something does start to clutter your mind, you're easily able to let it go.
