The Dragonflies'Lair ~ Thread LV ~ Anniversary Thread
Poets of the Lair | August 1, 2008 | Soaring Feather

Posted on 08/01/2008 6:23:53 AM PDT by Soaring Feather





My Dragonfly And Me


If I could be a Dragon Fly
and wing my way through the sky
I would never be shy
just me and my Dragon Fly!


By moonlight we ride the wind
chase the comets tail for fun
by day we would hide from the sun
our fragile wings would come undone


On darkest nights we would use
fireflies as our guide
we would dip and we would glide
through the heavens open wide
and scatter diamonds in the night sky
my Dragon Fly and me...


And we would wing past our lovers
silent in the night...
to kiss their face in our flight
much to their surprise and delight
my Dragon Fly and me in sight...


Such a view do we share
away up here in the air
of breezes soft through our hair
my Dragon Fly and me a pair...

WOO HOO, NYA!!

Treat your Calli well
she’s the one who can tell
if the sojourn has been
choppy seas, or smooth as silk
and a balmy breeze. ;0)

Who's an Aries? I need to know.

 

 

Lady Jag's Personal Horrorscope
for 
Thursday, August 28, 2008

It is useless to hold a person to anything he says while he's in love, drunk, or running for office.

Shirley MacLaine


 

Aries (March 21 - April 19)

You will inherit millions, along with a rather elderly butler named Hodgson. You'll have a nice time.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

Good time to be happy-go-lucky! You'll find that works out a lot better than the sad-go-accident-prone you've been trying.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

Today you will conclusively prove that despite what most people regard as common knowledge, monkeys only rarely chase weasels around the mulberry bush. They normally engage in that sort of thing over by the petunias.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

Today, by practicing for hours in the mirror, you will finally be able to keep a "stiff upper lip." Much to everyone's surprise, it will prove to be an excellent boost to your career.

Leo (July 23 - August 22)

Good day to let sleeping dogs lie. After all, the poor things seem to be completely exhausted, most of the time. My dog, Maggie, is asleep right now (after a good night's sleep, and a nice morning nap, followed by a good snooze). It's a tough life, but someone's got to do it.

Virgo (August 23 - September 22)

You will have an intellectual discussion with a potato, soon. You'll be so caught up in whether it was Descartes or Voltaire who first advocated empiricism, that it will fail to strike you as a bit odd that the potato knows much of anything about 17th-century French philosophers. In fact, it knows more about them than you do. Later, that will irritate you.

Libra (September 22 - October 22)

You will have a rather unfortunate episode involving turnips, today. Later, however, you'll be able to write a killer song about it.

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)

Today you will read a bit of Shakespeare, and just before you fall asleep, you will think: "A duck, by any other name, would smell as foul." Never mix Shakespeare and chocolate ice cream. The results can be a trifle unpredictable.

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)

You are always running out of things to say, at dinner. Try memorizing a whole lot of facts about commercial fish farming -- that's always a good topic for discussion.

Capricorn (December 22 - January 20)

Good day to make a call from a pay-phone in a busy place, and say (in loud voices) "You dumped the body WHERE?."

Aquarius (January 21 - February 18)

Today you will be invited to go on a 3 hour boat tour, which you think will be lots of fun. It may last longer than you expect...

Pisces (February 19 - March 20)

Today you will ignore the warning label on the mouthwash bottle, and will attempt to yodel while gargling. That will be a mistake.

Me of course. If it were only true. It isn’t nice to tease. But if I did win, you would get a new Jag. So how is that?

I think my career went bust some time ago, so I will forget the mirror practice.

That's not possible! You should flip through your dictionary for some inspiration.

There's always a new career but I have to confess. No matter how much I practiced I couldn't master the stiff upper lip. Couldn't even come close! Botox would do it, but I don't have the dough like these women did.

Kisses!

You need to hold a committee meeting with your voices to see who is holding out.

I don’t know which one of you is General Director.

You got to take that hat home, too! See, I remember things sometimes.

Yes, but it is extremely painful to do so. I made a deliberate decision not to watch the former president. He is so repulsive, so full of bullshit, that I cannot bear it.

A firm believer in keeping friends close and enemies closer, I've seen most of it. Though I must admit it was hard to watch Bubba and I averted my eyes many times.

Looking forward to watching tonight when Obama speaks from the temple he had built for him.

The whole convention has been a failure if you ask me. I've wondered if it has inspired any Dems who watched it.

Oh, the temple thing, I saw it this morning on FOXNEWS, good grief. Maybe he did not order it, I don’t know, but it sure takes us back in time when the Greeks ruled the world. (He ain’t no Greek.)
