one word cinched robe: texture

legroom, leggings
ill fit the tide

you're on, ill fit

the robo room, where

fit glides

the globalest warming

imaginable, frisky

recompense, simplicity

in nine colors

roy's biv and then some,

carousel's regaling

pipers piping

fantastic twirler tans


the last stand

at home and in the circling

wagons. variegated

whimsy asks little

to nothing, but

that urchin still

seems a lot, more than

the Christchild offers

on layaway, that nod

to commerce that waylays

the crimson tide

of nadja's fancy,

the one she

promenaded down

to the river front,

the one she begged

beyond simple mercy,

the one

she gave amply

at offices

far and wide. this speech

was noble,

but the ring

finger tells all:

run into your frozen

fields my children,

the elves are back

in their woods,

the last homely

whistled by your

ears, the nomads

fed you with no

hands, no demands, no

blue gods deeming

the rest

as you flower.

This is no lump of coal, Paschal. Christchild, Crimson Tide, elves in the woods--this stocking runneth over, even as it runs. But those "blue goods deeming the rest as you flower," the "no" that precedes them--that's the diamond in the toe. Or on the ring finger.

I love when you play the flute and we all follow you on a journey through scenery of jewels and fantastic visions. We just dance along with the music and then fall down at the end to sigh from the dizzy, head spinning, whirling beauty.
The jewels for me were these:
variegated whimsy
more than
the Christchild offers
on layaway
that nod
to commerce that waylays
the crimson tide
sitting in the shade now resting but it was fun and like a child I want to say - do it again! do it again!

Sister San: Or on the ring toe. Thought you might like that Crimson Tide, as you have plenty reason to these days, courtesy of Lord Saban. Ah, yes, our home states will be in pitched battle, come January 7th. If you go to the official BCS championship site, there is a ticker, counting down (to the second) the time remaining before the clash of the Titans.

All neither here nor there, vis-a-vis the stocking stuffers. Thanks for shaking out all the contents and having a look-see. Be well, up there, you and the other lovelies.

Ms Dee: Zilker Park in Austin has a huge Christmas "tree" of lights, under which countless generations have twirled the seasonal merry, blissfully fallen down, and then again, again! See you there.

I have seen pictures of said festivities - enjoy. Will you be able to watch the movie The Road in your neck of the woods? They do not believe in this "art" films in this town....

Well, I enjoyed roy g. biv in the robo room under a blanket of white in the field. You certainly are getting into the holiday spirit. No latent grinchiness in Muravia!! Sorry it's taken so long to comment. I'm still not done with my project. I know what I need to do, but have to force myself to do it, and it has been cold and rainy. Perfect sleeping weather...

Teresa: Sorry the labor continues, happy it will soon end for the holidaze. (Yes?) Those frozen fields, kids, elves, and woods were my morning urchins. We ran around the football field out back of the school, screaming our celebratory delirium over finally finishing The Hobbit. A fitting ending to our own journey with Bilbo and Gandalf and the dwarves.

Oh. I love The Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings Trilogy. You certainly are a creative teacher!! When I was in high school, we had a dog named Gandalf. He started my mother's habit of naming her dog's for famous wizards and sorceresses. She's been through Merlin and Morgana. Now she's been promoted to feeding the goddess Danu

T: Most (most) dogs I've lived with or known have been wizards, worthy of any such name.
