Do me a favor, won't you? Use the title of this challenge somewhere within a poem of your own design, weight, texture, hair color and eye shade -- in other words, just use the damn thing somewhere, nixing all the superfluous stuff I said following.

Um ... is this Dark? Or Open? Eh, whichever you feel.

I'll see you with mine, soon.

Yer on my cloud again, Mike...

This is getting bizarre...I've been working on a pencil drawing of something similar..now? I have SOMETHING ELSE to think about...will ponder this as I clean house this afternoon and see what comes of it!

OK...I think I've beaten this one to death and not added any new perspective to the phrase nor been very clever inusing it to say more than the obvious..so I'll quit now... but thanks for the challenge! It was a nice diversion.....

and YOU lady.... demanding???? (chuckling) I'm terribly stubborn when people get demanding......

Okay, now you're just showing off.

Loved these, Ron.

(I'll work on mine soon)

And yes, Sen, we do think alike sometimes, don't we?

Nah...at least not intending to be a show off.... just obsessive when I see multiple ways to use a phrase or an idea... generally why I don't do challenges... because I can't choose one version to write, I have to write several and usually end up beating the idea to death in my head. I am sure you and Ser will come up some unique play of word and image that do the potential held in the phrase justice.... made me want to speak some African dialect when I read it...and do a piece filled with sounds... maybe one of you two can.

Later all... must get my head back into the program requirements and a database for now...

I'm glad you found something in it for you, Sunshine. I loved the poem that resulted. In fact, I loved *all* the poems that resulted from this.
