(Sorta to the tune of little caterpillar crawling on me hand, and five little pumpkins:)

Shiny little fuzzy bunny (so cuddly)!
Squishy candy bar in tummy (how yummy)!
Car rides 'round the town (fun abound!)
With lots of bubble gum (hey, gimme some!)

Splashing water in the pool (oh cool!)
Cute colored art on sidewalk (in chalk!)
Walks through wooded park (in the dark)
With coffees and cakes (our friendship's great)!


*bows* Thank you... thank you...

Memories (my title: Fleeting beasts)

It is darkness,
It is sunshine,
An arrangement of images
Playing repeat in your mind.
Not all stay,
Not all leave,
Some fade away too soon
While others linger and tease.
All of the sweet,
All of the sour,
Pain you end up reliving
And happiness you devour.
Leftover shadows,
Leftover dreams,
Living in a fleeting realm
Full of taunts and schemes.

...A hastened childhood,
First lovers scorn,
A life fading away,
While a new babe is born.
An old goal achieved,
Wedding ring that gleaned
Puppy's muddy footprints,
On the floor just cleaned...

(These are the)
Memories tightly kept
Memories shared and told
Memories weathered steadfast
And memories yet to behold

"Wiggling"

Struggling the right way out
Twists and turns throughout
Completely seized with doubt
Throughout

Loving sweetly, bitter lives
Memories of awful size
Pierce peaceful day like knives
Sighs

Hoping, praying, ever near
Thoughts you see, never hear
Slowly grow your fear
All here

Sighs throughout here


Next assignment: Memories

Twilight

As the sun fades and life turns to dust,
We weep the most for all those lost.
As the laughter subdues and eyes turn,
A somber tale emerges for others to learn.
As the songbird silences and returns to nest,
One can hear a heavy heart falling to rest.
As the wild stream calms and the trees still,
One remembers warmth as it turns to chill.
As the winds settle in the valley below,
Remembering life becomes aged and slow
As the twilight turns and its colors fade,
I hear voices of old loves as if they stayed.


Next assignment, should you choose to accept: "wiggling"

Crystal clear
Fountain dear
Soft tinkling you can hear

Other side
Shadows hide
Angry rumblings of fear

Oversight
Heaven's light
Wavy lines in brilliant white

Introduction
Pink destruction
Wipe out good in righteous blight

Other side
Let it slide
Rip that gash far open wide

Masses toll
On the whole
Unto the darkest path you slide

Archive Entry: Paperclip Ad

"Paperclips" VERSION 1
Title: Paperclip Ad/ I really dunno!

Oh, the glory of a paperclip!
They’re full of so much potential and usefulness!
It’s just the right office supply to hold all your things together,
And its simplistic design makes them easy to use!
Just clip to multiple sheets of paper and presto!
They hold all of your loose papers together with ease.
That’s right! -no need to worry about your papers scattering anymore!
Yet their design also makes them easy to detach when necessary
Moreover, they’re extremely durable for you to use again and again!
But wait- you can also bend them, stretch them, mold them…
Why, you can shape them into whatever your liking!
This revolutionary product dates all the way back to the late 1800’s,
Making thousands of office workers happy for over a century!
And their affordability continues to make them a beloved favorite.
Plus they come in a variety of sizes to satisfy all your needs.
Made from steel or plastic, they are extremely sturdy,
And now they come in a pack of assorted colors!
They’re also light and very resilient, oh but don’t worry;
With up to 500 per pack, they are also easily replaceable!
You heard it! So in case something should happen,
Paperclips are exceptionally disposable!


NOTE: I think that helps to kinda gather prospective. I even did a little shout out for you/us- just for old times sake! Anyway! Here's the final (think kinda... umm, oh! Like the opening title sequence in Monty Python almost):

"Paperclips" VERSION 2: Final
Paperclip Ad

Oh, the glory of a paperclip!
(That’s what I am, so I say)

They’re full of so much potential and usefulness!
(It’s really a great life- And you get wonderful benefits)

It’s just the right office supply to hold all your things together,
(If you’re interested I can send you a brochure!)

And its simplistic design makes them easy to use!
(Sorry, but if you’re gold or aluminum, you need not apply)

Just clip to multiple sheets of paper and presto!
(Yummy, paper! I could just hold onto this all year!)

They hold all of your loose papers together with ease.
(“With ease”? My how they flatter me sometimes)

That’s right! -no need to worry about your papers scattering anymore!
(That must be because of how awesome I am. A-w-e-s-o-m-e!!)

Yet their design also makes them easy to detach when necessary
(Ha ha! Did you hear that? Beat THAT Stapler!)

Moreover, they’re extremely durable for you to use again and again!
(I once went out with a stapler. Ugh! So high maintenance though.)

But wait- you can also bend them, stretch them, mold them…
(That’s right! Why, I once unlocked handcuffs!)

Why, you can shape them into whatever your liking!
(…I don’t think I was supposed to do that come to think of it)

And now they come in a pack of assorted colors!

You heard it! So in case something should happen,

Ok, I think I have it. I may want to tweak it and some Paperclip lines I thought it would have been great to get your input or change, but oh well. I meant to call you this weekend to see about starting up our community. I was trying to think of a cool name for it like.... Poem Productiveness Inc or Project Poems or something nifty and creative but slightly professional even.
But ok! Topic being Paperclips! I don't really have a good title for it so I just slapped down anything. BUT. The reason why this one took SOOOOO long to compile, was because I had to work it in sections. Plus, I even did research. So when I went to type it out, I had to make sure I had one part solid enough before I could make up the rest of the dialogue. I'll show you, this is first part:

(Inserted both versions of the Project Poem topics)

So there you have it!

Your next assignment shall be about or include.....

A fountain! (Poki's previous owner made her a home-made submersed water pump in a huge tuberware of water to help circulate water flow since she's a picky cat and I can hear it tinkle right next to me) I think that has great potential for some thing sweet or poetic or sad or maybe very myyyystical! ;-)

Anyway, if you're busy then maybe I can get online tomorrow and we can discuss what to do about our online poem thing! Yay!
Froggie Bloggie Frog Blog

Froggie, Froggie, Froggie
Why dont' you start a bloggie?
What would you write for, anyway?
How many flies you caught that day?

Or lily pads you hopped across
Or your favorite green things: moss,
Money, grass, or algae-stream
Or Froggie Mom's green tea ice cream?

How blue the sky was in the morn?
How cold the water to tadpole's born?
Or sounds so sweet in the forest air?
A flapping birds wings...What's that there?!

Whoosh! *Squish*

...

Well, maybe birds can blog
About recipes...for frog...

I feel kind of bad that I made us slow down. <;;> It's easy for these emails to get lost in my hotmail, though, so I can forget about them. I was busy all weekend at the Tucson Festival of Books, and actually still have NOT worked on EOE, so I think I was waiting until I got some of that done, so I wouldn't have to feel so guilty. <~~> Doh.

I don't feel like putting this off any longer, though, so here we go:

(inserted poem)

Wow, that actually made me giggle at the end! Sweet!

Okay, your next challenge is....*looks around*

Paperclips!

I loooooove office supplies. (I think all writers have an office supply fetish of some sort.) Paperclips are definitely some of the most interesting. Let's see of how you can "bend and shape" this one. <^~>

-Allie
What was left behind


He walked down the street alone clutching his jacket closer
The clicking of his shoes heard sporadically against the bricks
His ragged breath drew in the thick and heavy night air
Aware of everything around him but ignoring all from within
Outlining the Constable up ahead he eased his pace
He tried to make his walk straighter and tipped his hat in passing
As the other footsteps subsided the misty silence was soon once more
The chill enveloped him and made him pause his uneven legs
How low it was that the moon hung through the haze
And how many of them he's seen so far without her
The shrill of a motor-car blared at him from behind
His balance nearly lost when shuffling up to the sidewalk
Churning low as it past then distant from around the corner
Steadied against a rubbish bin yet his mind still swirling
The scuffle caused the old bowler to become askew and low
Dusting off what he deeply wished were the old memories
Placing it back to which it had come made his mind ease
Never to admit that her once gift was unpardonable or precious
He convinced himself that its usefulness outweighed sentimentality
Yet the difference of opinion between mind and heart hung heavy
Reaching inside his jacket, he took another swig from his flask
Peering below he eyed a discarded brown bag from the bin
Old banana, paper, shaving cream, and items believed past its peak
The container of shaving cream was found low but not entirely gone
Rubbing his long, white stubble he distantly thought of younger times
Tucking away the bag with only the shaving cream he sighed
His tale still made him find usefulness in what was left behind
He knew he was also left behind and waiting in his old world
Becoming accustomed but never attached he staggered slowly on
And he walked down the sidewalk alone clutching the brown bag
The clicking of his heels heard sporadically against the concrete

Ok, well the first one I finished actually like right when you signed off of aim the second time. Silly and short.... but then I thought of your poem, the man in the picture, and the slightly drunk man in Hello Dolly. Anyway, I somehow ended up with one a bit more sober so to speak.

So there you go! One silly and sweet, another a dilly but neat (I hope)!

MUAH!

Archive Entry: Shaving Cream

Shaving Cream


Whippy, whippy, lighter than air
Squishy, squishy, into your palm it goes
Lather, lather, over the stubble of hair
Foamy, foamy, shaving it off in rows

Lackluster Attempts

Now a days I seem to dream,
I wittle away and toil,
Until nothing big surmises,
And my motivation recoils.

-Dedicated to you, Chapter 5! You suck!
