The Dragonflies' Lair~Thread XLVII
The Poets of The Lair | January 31, 2008 | Soaring Feather

Posted on 01/31/2008 7:59:38 PM PST 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...

Hi Seven, time for a new thread, I was going to wait until midnight so it would be Feb 1, but I woke up at 4:30 this morning. No nap today.

Oh, the stock market, I don’t try to keep up with it. Hope Godzilla can restrain himself. LOL

This is where they give stage shows each night, awesome place.



Yep, Nancy gave it a try, and while she didn't win a car, we at least got to keep ours so I count that a win!



The room stewards do this bit with making animals from towels. In fact one of them wrote a book on it for the cruise line
(no I didn't buy one.)



Nassau, a neat place but we stayed aboard and relaxed. Those who went ashore nearly drown in a driving rain!
(talk about your timing!)



St. Tomas Harbor, the shopping port of the Caribbean



Roast beef, sliced thin as a dream and tastes almost sinfully good!!!

Brooding Land

Howl oh bitter wind do scream
Across the black water moor
Slip thy silvered mist in silence
Over the fallen heroes and fools
And hammer thy swords into tools
Take down the torn tattered tents
Still standing under Culan’s Tor
Let fate take her toll I do deem

Leave the swords to rust away
Into the quickly distancing past fair
Sing of those gone as warriors true
That is all they will be remembered for
One small gift for crossing fate’s door
They did, as warriors are ever fate to do
Now they journey on as shades dare
Free of that sad and mortal day

GM Meg, nice window scene, stay warm, how’s the paper work coming along.

We got some snow in the early morning hours, the warning is up for a dozy of a storm, we shall see, often times we don’t get hit like some areas of the state.

Thank you, SF I liked your ping to the new thread, too.The important stuff is done..The filing is yet to be done..I will have to find another project to delay doing that..LOL

We have yet to have a freeze coupled with rain..I can do without ice storms easily..I have never experienced a real snow storm.

The sun is shining (Yea!)and I would never know it is so cold out there...until I go out to feed my flock. I went to the grocery store last night to pick up a few items, not realizing how the temps had dropped..My cotton knit jacket was definitely lacking when I walked from my car to the store ...I’ll learn !

We have probably 2 inches of snow, looks like some sleet on it, now it’s raining. I have not checked local stations for school closing, etc.

I think the nasty part is yet to arrive.

The guys who are scraping and sanding on the house are out there working, I can hear the sander.

I am so out of touch with Superman, I tell ya Seven it’s a shame.

Hello Soaring Feather. Sorry for the absence. Been with the customer almost all week in a design review for new equipment for our troops. Then, I had to re-qualify at the range for my part-time gig. A quick review of the past post show many great poems and pictures of travel and some of snow. It is 68 degrees here and “Old Sol” is beaming brightly. Have to run off and go to the store and get people and cat food and pick up dry cleaning. Later.

Heavens to Betsy, NYA, glad you came up for a breath! You have been busy.

All is well, we did have ice.

I have been hibernating, tv showed many cancellations around out area, many more to the North and East, and West of my local.

Happy to hear that you are well. Hope that you haven’t had to do any ice skating while out and about. A friend of mine did an unintentional pirouette and broke her hip. I occasionally ask her what she did with the money for ice skating lessons. To her it wasn’t funny at the time. Now she laughs while throwing things at me. Some women just cannot take a joke. Hope that you are warm and safe.

Safe and warm thanks. I did not go out today so no danger of me falling unless my toe inside the house.

Falling is a big worry. I are not so flexible anymore.

NYA, somethings you joke about- somethings you don’t! LOL

I asked her if she minded trying it again while I filmed it. I was only thinking of her best interest so that she could analyze her mistakes in case she falls again.
