Okay my Friends and family I give you this phrase and I wonder how many of you can put it in a poem

Until the stars grow dark and there is no more day
When the air catches fire and the seas dry to dust


you can use the lines in any order, but you cannot change the order of the words.

So for example you could have:

Until the stars grow dark and there is no more day
.............................................

When the air catches fire and the seas dry to dust
..............................................
Fill in the blanks
I'm sure yours will all be utterly fabulous

Okay enjoy...........
Love and warm stuff
As always
Mushy

Well, I just posted my response to your poem in Open #18, I hope you enjoy it. Dark, with a lighter ending. Balance is the key, LOL. Loved the challenge!
