The Dragon Flies'Lair~XXXXIII
Poets of The Lair | October 07, 2007 | Soaring Feather

Posted on 10/07/2007 6:40:02 PM PDT by Soaring Feather



My Dragon Fly 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...

The real problem with adversity is that you still some time off to get your head straight!

Some times, our character is shaped by the adversity. What say you??

Oh, Yes, I agree. I think sometimes God gives us the tools or words of incouragement in places we sometimes don't expect. Instead of looking at adversity as just something bad, it gives us the ability to look at adversity as an opportunity to grow.

I'm also reminded of what I heard about the Chinese word for Crisis...supposedly it's the same word for opportunity.

Sometimes, though, words just seem weak, when your tired. I'm going to try to get some rest.

Beautiful butterfly, Meg. We were around 61 today and it felt good. Tomorrow might be a chilly rain.

I’m up..back to my night owl habits..My little once lame raccoon came tonight for the first time in days..He walks toward me and backs up but has gotten so used to me..I thought now that his leg is well that he had taken off..I stood about 2 feet from him as he ate.

Sounds cool. And as you allow him room to escape if he feels threatened, he will be more accepting of your presence. I once had a ‘pet’ skunk as a kid, it would even come in the barn while I was milking, and I’d put a bit of milk in an old hubcap and it would drink from it as long as I was several feet away from it. It never spooked the cows, and it would leave after it had its fresh milk. It came and went as it liked, and never was a problem. I always kept in mind that it was a wild animal and gave the respect due it. It was a sort of two worlds meeting as it were, and special for that.

Coffee, coffee, that awesome brew
it wakes me up, revs me, up oh it do
the smell sure to make me rise from my bed
if only to get the first cup for a deadhead
perhaps with a bagel and a spot of cream cheese
a wake up that’s too good at which to sneeze
pour me a cup and another to go
let the caffeine freely to flow
Jive me up baby at least eight to the bar
and another full cup on the way to the car
the day needs a boost to get it to go
and coffee is the only thing good I know

WAKE UP you sleepy heads! I’ve been up since 5 AM!

breakfast is on the table;

Sour dough pancakes as light as a cloud, they’ll do
real rich warmed maple syrup, and preserves to delight
bright sunny butter whipped fresh and sweet new cream
the coffee’s hot and the fresh milk chilled just right
with bacon hot and smoky, and sizzling sausage links too
Toasted English muffins and toast for the choosy few
eggs as you like them, over easy for me what about you
get up this is not a lazy man’s hunger driven dream
its time for you pull up a chair, there’s eating to do
I’m a happy old cook and I’ll make some for you too!

Whoa, that’s a grand menu you offer here
the morning is brisk, I slept like a babe
I’ll have some home fried taters, and sauage
and cakes, with tons of coffee,
for Pete’s Sake!

What you doing up so early, writing all night??

Scubie, sometimes we have to hold the center
sometimes, we are the safest there
as the eye of a hurricane is the calmest
then calm we remain!

One would think those hounds could smell the fox.
Bless the foxes
they are so coy
sharp and slippery
very keen of eye.
Go little fox!

Yes, I'll admit it for I cannot tell a lie. That too is the Sailor in me. Somehow the words "Trust Me" should come into play. LOL

Yep 5 AM, I was up all night working on a new book manuscript. Its about a robot designed for battle, that due to a damaged processor unit, (and some strange rewiring by itself) begins to learn about such things as thought, the humanities, and morals by reading human books. It begins to see the world through different reference points, and the effect it has on its own purpose for being. It’s been fun seeing how a logical and linear reasoning process, becoming more human-like in its process creates some rather strange paths. While the robot can never be human, it gives one the chance to see how it might affect such a mind. What is really fun is seeing how the humans hunting the robot take to the idea that the robot is becoming more like them then they might like to accept. With any luck, it’ll be done a few months.

“I should know, I have seen looks like that in my lifetime.”

Oh man, I know right where your coming from! OUCH!

We poor misunderstood sailors often get looks like that! Hell I can still remember the old ‘Sailors and Dogs stay off the lawn’ sign in San Diego as a young man. Now there was a place to get ‘those’ looks!!!
