And here are the poems.




Clinging precariously
Dancing in the sunshine
One big wind could mean the end
Such tragedy
~Anne McKenna

 

Like peas in a pod
They followed Bob
They, too, loved the magic of grass

~slatts

 

Attachment

One fine thread,
that's all,
but it's enough,
my friend
across space, across time.

~Kathy Q.
wordsrmylife

 

Fringe on the curtain,
swaying in the breeze.
Wait, those are lacewings
traveling by trapeze.

~Cindyb

 

Eggs waiting
to be hatched
to live
to kill
to love
to lay
to die

~Christine

 

BLIND DATE

"Me...Me...Me..."

She gazes
at the pendant
lighting imagining
him hanging
by his nose.

~Diane Mayr

 

Green Invasion
We disguise our ship
as earth-grass,
extending traps. Soon
we will capture aphid-beings
to interrogate.

~Kate Coombs

 

Swinging in a warm breeze
Faster
Higher
Stretching toward the sunshine
Suspended paradise

~Celeste Ribbins

 

Tiny Jewels

tiny jewels
don't be fooled
hanging free
disguised as peas
waiting for their enemies.
~Sue Douglass Fliess

 

Safekeeping
Mother Nature
hangs lacewing eggs
like my mom
tied mitts on a string

~Violet Nesdoly

Deep into a fairy world of green
sliding
swinging
laughing
playing
loving
life.

~Linda Covella

 

Swamp plants upended,
cling to milkweed shores,
reaching with poised
buds to waiting water: home.

~Brenda Stokes

Fragile.
Delicate.
Wonderous.
Life hangs on
by a thread
in spite of us.

Tantinizingly Tenacious

~stu pidasso

 

How many greens
can be found-
values criss-cross
on the ground,
summer soup
of color.

~Diane M. Davis



 

There are so many stories only you can tell.Tell them, please.

Great work, poets. I missed Live Journal yesterday so I never saw the photo or had a chance to post a poem. I'm online right now and Susan just posted your entries. I am so impressed. From little peas, great words grow. {}

WHO AM I?



Who am I?I was born on the Cancer/Leo cusp and share a birthday with Ernest Hemingway and Robin Williams. The similarities don't stop there as I can go from depressed to ecstatic without ever passing go. I feel scared most of the time though my friends call me brave and I find it easier to believe in my friends than to believe in my own abilities to make what I want out of my life.

Who am I? A wife, a mother, a daughter, and even, gulp, a grandmother.

Who am I? A writer who never gets tired of playing with words, even when the words are hard to find. A writer of books for children and articles for grown-ups and many things in-between.

Who am I? A motivational speaker, writing instructor, workshop leader and full-time follower of dreams.

Who am I? Read and find out.

"Successful writers are not the ones who write the best sentences. They are the ones who keep writing. They are the ones who discover what is most important and strangest and most pleasurable in themselves, and keep believing in the value of their work, despite the difficulties."
--Bonnie Friedman

"As writers, we must be willing to feel our sadness, our anger, our terror, so we can reach in and find our sweet vulnerability that is just sitting there waiting for us to come back home."
--Nancy Slonim Aronie

"Writers write about what obsesses them. You draw those cards. I lost my mother when I was 14. My daughter died at the age of 6. I lost my faith as a Catholic. When I'm writing, the darkness is always there. I go where the pain is."
--Anne Rice
