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


Stonily I brace


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.
