The Dragonflies'Lair~Thread XXXVIII~June 2007-July 2007
Soaring Feather/Poets of the Lair | June 1, 2007 | Soaring Feather

Posted on 06/01/2007 6:53:35 PM 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...

Howdy howdy hi! I thought the label for threads was "May and June", but are you going to make threads for May to June? In other words one thread per month?

They will get awfully long on a two month basis, I was curious to see how long a two month Lair thread would get. ;-)

Yes, too long, and I nearly missed NYAttitude’s lovely poem.

I put June ~July thread for some reason which escapes me now. LOL

I shall stick to my 1000 posts or try hard anyway. We had Memorial Day and I did not want to post so near the end of the month with such an important holiday.

I have run some long threads but they get so tiresome to me anyway.
So how goes it for you? Keeping busy?

Yep, keeping busy. This morning was gloriously sunny, now it's meditatively overcast. I'm enjoying hanging out at the Internet cafe, and will probably be here all day. (I was going to run out while it was sunny, but now that it's overcast, might as well listen to music and surf!)

For no particular reason, here's a tiger diving under water!:

WOW, that is a fine picture. ;) Is that his supper he is after?? Looks like raw meat.

Oh it’s morning for you!! Well Good Day to you.

We had a very nice day, no rain, but a tad on the humid side.

I think rain will come in the night.

Yes, that's his supper. I saw it in a story somewhere on the Internet, he learned to dive into water by chasing chunks of meat his handlers threw in (guess they had too much time on their hands!)

In posting that picture to my photobucket account (so I could host it here) I saw I still have some pictures from the second to last trip to Thailand.

Some series take more imagination to make a storyline than others. I was going to put together a walk through the rain down by the river, then back around to a street market. But the rain walk is hard to cobble together into a storyline.

I think I'll just skip ahead to the street market pictures and post them here on the new thread. I think I'll throw that together right now!

Okay, great! I will post the Index of you photo links a little deeper in the thread.

Oh, I saw on the tube tonight, that your city Taipei, had given some sharks to the state of Georgia. Big hummers they were. They showed footage of the loading of the shark for transport.

Well, here's another Bangkok installment.

After walking down by the river in the rain (which isn't quite picturesque enough to turn into a series), we head back to town and visit the street market for some snacks.

1.)So let's leave a pensive and brooding rainy afternoon by the river, and head on over to the colorful market.


2.)As we walk, we pass a Chinese art shop. It's hard to see, but the very center of this huge varnished root system is carved into the head of a phoenix. Can you see the phoenix? There are also coconuts for sale, if anyone wants a quick snack. But don't eat too much, the market will be full of food!


4.) Yowley! What a big head!



5.) Traditional Chinese figures. I really should know who all these guys are, but I don't! I'll try to ask my Chinese colleagues the next chance I get. Holding those little baby midgets, I think it's a safe bet these are New Years figures of some sort.



6.) Ah, finally, we're at the market! Now the next several shots will show all the kinds of things they sell on the sidewalk on a typical street in Bangkok. There are some stewed fish down front, but really, as I walked by all these tables, I had no idea what most of these foods are. Not speaking Thai, and with most street vendors not speaking English, it was difficult to find out what some of these foods are made from.



7.) There are coconuts on the right, trimmed and ready to whack open with a clever, insert straw, and enjoy fresh coconut milk walking down the street. It's quite tasty, you can see some opened coconuts behind the plastic containers. On the far left are what I believe are steamed mussels in spicy sauce, placed in bags for "take out". I'm not sure what the brown "bun" looking things are in the middle!



8.) Except for the hot Thai babe working the table, I don't recognize any of the things in this picture! I'm sure it's all delicious though!



9.)Fried fish and vegetables, a classic combination!



10.) Lots of little impromptu "cafeterias" like this one are all over in Thailand. As you can see, a wide selection of delicious dishes served up as "fast food" on the cheap. (Taiwan has similar dining establishments). In Thailand, these types of places are usually cut off from foreign visitors, due to the lack of pricing, English menus, or dishes recognized by foreigners. That's OK, the Thais would rather charge tourists top dollar at sit down places, these much cheaper Thai cafes are more for the local population.



11.)And finally we end with lots of sweets. Through different combinations of processing, coloring, and sweetening, rice based sweets can be made to have a vast range of flavors, appearances and consistencies. These all might be quite interesting to sample!

I remember that a helicopter while placing the flame on top of the bridge span lost altitude and the rotor blades struck the flame and went to pieces. The helicopter fell to the bridge roadbed with a loss of everyone on board.

Would you sample anything they sell?

Sure, I've eaten several things from the vendors. The real barrier is asking for something. You're not sure how it will be handed to you, or how much they'll give you, or what the price should be, so you hesitate to buy anything.

But I've eaten at one of the little dinner cafes once, by pointing at things in the pots, and I've bought some packages of the little sweet things they sell. But the sweet treats often have a weird taste to us. Like they use lots of coconut butter, or some strange spice, plus the consistency is unfamiliar to Westerners. Sometimes mushy, some times "fleshy", and very often extremely gummy, but made from dough, or pounded rice gluten.

I bought one bag of "things" (medium sized, white doughy balls with a yellow spot on each one) from a handicapped lady in Bangkok. When I ate them later, well they tasted alright, but it was a mushy sugary sweetness, combined with a bizarre mesquite-like bbq flavor, with something that tasted vaguely of egg inside (they cook a lot of tiny eggs, I guess they're pigeon eggs, or quail or something). So the over all experience of their preferred foods is not what Thailand is known for.

The beaches, sunshine, temples and beer are much safer ground for outsiders!

Forge Master’s Unspoken Question

Meditate upon the steel,
is it right for the work ahead.
Will it gleam on glowing ashes bed,
and whisper soft enough to feel?

Five pound hammer sets a gentle pace,
to turn the edge in endless folds.
In rhythms timeless and oh so old,
as steel flows as delicate as folded lace.

From red to orange and soft bright white,
the coals glow to bellows breath.
And as they swiftly die a fiery death,
they give life to steel in fire’s light.

Smaller hammers and gentle taps,
set the edge along the line.
and form becomes the thing so fine,
set in place by careful loving raps.

Spark dancers whirl on anvil’s top,
and crashing slips to ringing tones.
As softer now we near the stage to hone,
and let the loosened steel filings drop.

Long strokes set the edge so thin
a gleaming point along the line
and patience now must be so fine,
for the hardest part is yet to come again.

Once more into the well watched fire,
for temper is a fleeting thing at best
and only loving patience rewards the test
before we can know the thing we’ve sired.

Fitting the hilt and binding it well,
making the scabbard house with loving care.
Polishing the bright blade with lime dust fair,
and remembering the purpose fell.

It dances on the morning sun,
gleaming with a life all its own.
And it makes a chilling moan,
kissing the wind in hissing run.

A warrior’s soul, the maker’s too,
dedication in this highest art.
And only you know the hidden part,
taking part of you as it needs must do.

Where has it finally gone,
far from the birthing forge and coals.
Serving with honor for him and you, its toll,
will it return one day, some distant dawn?

Good morning everyone!

It fills my heart with to joy to see the
company that has visited me
while I have been drawn away to rest
a weary head, to a cool and comfy bed.

Entering the Lair, on a lovely June morn
I hear the laughter left in the room
and hear the echoes of Johnn's anvil ring
forging out a masterpiece.

Starbase has left another grand tour
of exotic lands with steamy streets
with tons of food stands filled to the top
for hungry wanders to stop and shop!

Lady Jag with her talented hands,
bring humour to our cyber land,
her graphics most well planned keep us laughing
just as she has planned.

NY Attitude, tries his hand at writing poetry
from the sandy lands,
he tells us tales of ancient lands
with huge sand dunes and wild camels.

So different we are in our lives
we come together here and write
of our adventures and our dreams
and leave them here for posterity!

starbase, this “Off The Beaten Path” is so filled with color!

The artwork is mysterious and intriguing. I love the old tree root piece, fantastic imagination that artist had.

The food stalls are both temping and mystifying! A wonderful show indeed, so well put together with your voice leading us around the winding exciting streets. The bridge picture is really grand.

Thanks so much.

Thanks for your enthusiastic assessment Soaring. I had thought this tour was a little on the bland side! But you and Lady Jag both seemed to like it rather well.

I had to jump back and forth as I took the pictures of the foods, as people were constantly walking up and down the walk way. As a result, the food pictures are not of the clarity I had hoped for, it's so easy to blur the digital camera shots! Just move a hair and it will blur.

Very nice rousing summary poem in post #24. I can almost hear them chanting that one around the tables in Val Halla! (don't ask me why I said that, it's just what came to mind!) ;-)

I am so pleased you see that, and here's why, 'tis in me blood, 'tis in me blood!
See the bonfire in the back? Each and every year the Finnish people celebrate Summer Solstice (Juhannus) with several days of festivities.
On the Solstice the only time the sun does not set in Finland, a large bonfire is prepared on a raft in the middle of a lake. It is set on fire at dusk!
Yes, Val halla!
This is your hostess reading her work at Juhannus.

Bravery
 
  It gives us the power,
To break through the barrier,
The barrier that holds us back,
To do what we lack.

This barrier that holds us,
Is the one best known as,
The curse of our land,
The “fear” most of us defined.

Those who conquer this great foe,
We call him a Hero.
We call him brave,
For he seems unafraid.

We say fear has been ejected,
From the brave ones mind,
But it’s actually extended,
But was overacted by courage.

It’s true bravery I say,
That we fight for the day,
Not without fear,
But with the purpose to appear.

Just Pondering


Savagery on a subtle wing
tiger eyes, jaws of steel
cloak of velvet, colored sublimely
nestled on a bed of flowers
the scent of sweet in his nostrils
and the butterfly, how does he/she feel,
melded with a killer tiger on it's velvet, soft back?
Stifled by an inability to fly, to soar heavenward
to caress a flower as it dips and weaves over head
how can this be done with a tiger on it's back?

Courage Under Fire
 
  they'll
fall away
one by one
as strands of you
milk the moments
you had
for what they were worth,
still smouldering
in the hand
even though
you knew
in your hearts mind
that
it was pretence
as they smiled
behind soft
contemptuous lips
that offer you
quiet resentment
instead of love
just because
you breathe
and are
uniquely you,
and that
makes them
uncomfortable
against their
square jawed
perfect,
materialistic plan
that can't afford
you
but can
their every whim
which makes them
sorely aware
of their
superlative selves
so they
push you away
thinking
you are less
than them
because
you don't fit
but you keep
steering steadfast
in the sanctity
of truth
inside of trust
as the most valuable
integer
and they fear
''your being''
because
through you
they see
themselves
impoverished,
and their superior
ways collapse
in blind belief
as they continue
to make spaces
''for time''
more than sharing
or listening
or caring
for anyone else
because
what they want
is never enough-
so let them fall away
to be left
as dust
when matter
does not matter
and when you are
feeling raw and
naked and
real
then you can
afford
the comfort
of being
with another
and that is
what is true
and right
and real
and what you
are all about.
