Match Game


Google did the pictures


Match Game


click click


the stony cliff


his gait doth advise;


I wonder if


My friend


doth surmise...


my aim


Slash slash


he lurches


fearlessly;


Stonily I brace


myself


For a


cold blow


Wondering if


My cavorting dance


and forethought


will warm my aim


and shorten


my reach?


Or will he dance before


Freezing my blows?


and hasten


my retreat?

Hmm, did you watch a fencing match? I love stories that deal with swords, and sword fighting. In fact, the one I'm reading now is about a couple of sword dancers. They "dance" in circles drawn in the earth, often to the death, with challengers. I love the dance between sword masters. I love your imagery of the sword dance in stone. Very nice work, Nat. bea

speaking of swordfights (which you did so eloquently) I saw Orlando Bloom on the Tonight Show last night. What an adorable unpretentious young man.

I used to fence in college.  Unfortunately, my nickname was pretty much "pin-cushion."

I like how sunnyside46 can bring virtually any conversation around to Orlando Bloom. A true talent.


Also, I like the poem very much, Nat.
