and all in a moment
the balance began
to tip
in favor of the world

its belly writhed
with fiery worms
and the hellish clangor
defied the heavens
to undo what was done

silver coins clattered
across the marble floor
and despair hurled itself
from dry branches

to swing fruitless
in the wind

the fabric of time itself
was torn
and earth staggered,
momentarily at the mercy
of things to come

What came was Mercy

Kathleen WOW. That is beautiful, Juliette.

It's really quite amazing what you can do with a silly little word like "tip"!

Colleen (colleenmomtofive) Dear Juliette,

How do you expect us to write a poem after you? Beautiful.


message 8: by [deleted user] (new)

Spank you very much, Colleen, but you guys seem to do quite well, and not nearly half has morbidly..

message 9: by Kathleen (new)

Kathleen I am printing and framing this one. I'm not kidding.

I am blushing...(blush, blush)

message 11: by [deleted user] (new)

Thanks new england and seek

i mentioned in a previous post that the problem i see occuring a lot is the protests get press after the protest

let's see if we can get the word out before the protests

the third one you've posted seek is for this week

this is a huge event and should be getting news coverage but is not

let's email everyone we know about this one?

also, can we agree to keep our protests restricted to the war in iraq?

or put other issues in a misc. section?

see my manifesto post

i think we need to decide what our focus will be

message 21: by Steven (new)

Steven My downcast face looks too grumpy. It was supposed to be reflective. And am I supposed to hate you? Did I miss another memo?

I don't know...

message 23: by Clare D' Lune (new)

Clare D' Lune Yupp... there is this one werid song that goes, "Racecar spelled backwards is RACECAR." I don't know why, but I can't get the annoying tune out of my brain...
