The Dragonflie's Lair~Thread XLV
Poets of The Lair | November 30, 2007 | Soaring Feather

Posted on 11/30/2007 7:48:14 PM PST 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...

High Holy Days


Snow so softly falls silent out of the ebony sky
a blanket of forgetfulness over autumn's litter
and small lights strung challenges the stars above
lighting the season on porch, window, and trees
I smile as I walk tonight, for even sadness flees
for now we will celebrate the Season of His Dove
remembering what he would accept for us so bitter
and in doing so, set even my old sad soul to fly


WayzataJohnn

Oh no, I’m here by myself...again!

We’re going to have a winter storm here, promising something like 10 inches of snow and winds (whiteouts are NOT fun!) Nan and I are going to stay home and play house, I hope you all are better off weatherwise!

Tis the season for plotbunnies -
(fingers to the keys, and write some more)
serious or just for funnies
(I gotta get to sleep, fingers getting sore).
If I let them in I’ll perish —
laptop wants a break, and I’m just getting poor.
Once I had a life to cherish —
ideas run amok — someone shut that door!

Plot bunnies, for the uninitiated, are story ideas that pop up and demand attention even (and especially) when you are in the midst of writing something else. I had one attack that got finished this week, and have three others in the works, and two on the back burner as I speak....

Defeat those plotbunnies!

(I have to do the same thing, and it takes time I need to finish work in progress!)

I finally have gotten used to putting them down on a digital recorder and getting back to them another time.
Only way to keep what limited sanity I have!!!

Good morning Lairites! Happy December! Isn’t it amazing how quickly time passes? Pretty soon Christmas will be here and then New Year’s Eve. Time for celebration for what we have and for being above ground.

This morning we will try something a little different with breakfast:

- Assorted Fancy Pastries
- Assorted Fresh Fruit
- Hot Oatmeal
- Ham and Cheese filled Croissants
- Columbian Coffee
- Milk
- Tea

Bon Appetit

Chef Tude

Good morning everyone!
Old Man Winter has moved in, 19 F this morning, with a little blizzard of white stuff, high is going for 24F.
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.


Meg, thank you for the lovely Breakfast setting, NYA, for today's menu, WayzataJOhnn, for hanging around in the middle of the night!
Thanks to our Lairites for everything each one brings, it is your place, without you folks, there is no Lair.

Meg, my daily newspaper is weakening my strong defense of not having a cat. Yesterday, they published a pic from the ASPCA of a Tortoise Shell five year old cat. She is a beauty and holds the record for being at the shelter the longest of any cat. I had to fight myself to stay away from the phone.

It’s just to hard for me to have any pets now, not that I would not love to have one. ;0)

I think an older indoor cat would be lovely for you! They are really not demanding. I wish you could have one.
