(((Terri))) LOL Thanks! I've never been to Florida, but I've seen the Gulf from Louisiana and Mexico, and recently I saw what I always wanted to see in Florida--alligators!

Maybe we whould all come in here and compose a little poem to our very own states. Here's mine . . .

<b>Introducing Thomas to California</b>

Rows of eucalyptus
break the wind over
strawberry fields. Come

here, little boy,
sit down and watch
while I up-end this rock.

See? Rolly-pollies,
centipedes, an earthworm
for your bucket.

Great idea Lou (but you are full of them) I will be thinking about a poem to my home state of Maryland.

I can't resist a Lou challange<g>

<b>Virginia, Sweet Virginia</b>


Waves breaking o'er the sandy
beaches while the sun sets
yellow and orange behind the
mountains of green and brown

Fields of tobacco and soy wave
their arms in the gentle breeze
while the city bustles with activities
of corporate business

Banks of brilliant green battle to
contain the brown murky waters
of a raging river that keeps it's
secrets of the past.

Hello. I am new to the site and I just have to say that you all blew me away with your talent for words. I can feel the kindness and love being typed out from hearts thru fingers. Thank you. Even tho it wasn't sent to me, it affected me and it was needed. So here I am and I hope to meet some of you women of the world very soon.

Autum Colors
In the fall is when I long for someone
Asthe trees turn from green yo red, gold and brown.
The nights grow longer and colder.
To have someone at my side,
Walking arm in arm,leaves crunching under my feet.
The wind gently playing with my hair.
I look into your eyes and you smile.
Oh yea, that's when the longing comes.
You show me these colors.
My someone,my heart let's me know what I want. The someone I long for.
That someone who turns my heart golden, my cheeks red, and my mind to Autum colors.

Please let me know if you like it. I enjoy writing poems.

TIME

Tick tock, tick tock, the world moves round.
Tick tock, tick tock, the time is never found.
To rewind the motions of our day,
Go back and set things straight.

Tick tock, tick tock, the world moves round,
Tick tock, tick tock, the time in never found.
To say more I love you's and less I don't know's.
To explore, to get lost, to drive away and go.

Tick tock, tick tock, the world moves round,
Tick tock, tick tock, the time is never found.
To send less time worring and more having fun.
To stop compeating to not care who won.

Tick tock, tick tock, the world moves round,
Tick tock, tick tock, the time is never found.
To give it your very best in all that you do.
Tick tock, tick stop, the time is up to you.

I need help with this one. The metaphor/image came first, and I can't get the words right...

<u>Orbiting Desire</u>

No public fanfare,
no roar of rockets.
But somehow I boost
a payload of passion
out of your attractive field.

At a safe distance,
balanced between the urge to flee
and the need to come closer,
I circle.

Waiting for the small impulse -
the word, glance, touch -
that will start my dizzying
slide back into the well.

Hi, Cod! How's you?

I'm still jobless, except for the occasional temp gig. I hate temping.. it always feels like being fired when your time is up.

Tamara is settling back in better than I expected.

How about a simple one word change? Instead of "out of your attractive field" see what you think about "from your magnetic field"? It sounds to me like it maintains the same rhythm. However, advise is worth what it costs, and this time it's free! So, at least you got your money's worth from me! LOL!

brede, "magnetic" does fit with the rhythm, but I'd prefer to keep the specific metaphor of love (umm... ok, lust) as gravity.

The subject of the poem liked it, so I guess that's as good as I can expect. It's not as if I'm writing enough these days to be worth trying to publish!
