Show me your sky, without any adjectives. Notify me if you do one with the web address included.

Whether on the shoal or on the shore,
I'll seek the lighthouse evermore.

I really like this idea. Wait til I get back to school, then I'll attempt a response.

Well, I didn't make it to school.  Snowy roads and two hour drives don't get along with me.

But, I went ahead and wrote a try anyways.

I paint and rearrange
The stars with a brush.
I set music from a corner,
And it enchoes to another edge
Of lovers' minds,
And bestows solace upon prilgrims-
Whose hearts are serving the Lord,
The creator of this scene.


hey did i did it right?

Most assuredly, aries, I can tell it's night and there are no adjectives. It's a beautiful poem, too, with a peaceful feel to it.

Whether on the shoal or on the shore,
I'll seek the lighthouse evermore.

I think that this is an interesting challenge. I just posted "I Rise At Night" in Open 25.

sky and no adjectives?  I'm usually too lazy to try to work on a challenge, but tonight I will give it a shot... hang on while I start typing....

Home to angel's choir
haven for nature's horde
bird, bat, bug, and air
the net which snags wishes
entwines our prayers
and frees our dreams.
Ether, whisper, scent,
container of life, love, and joy.
Now too, the resting place,
of fourteen new angles.
ash and soul joined two decades apart.
Earth's sky, our supplier of life,
now our astronaut's burial plot.

Sorry if this became morbid, but as with all I write, it created a life of it's own.

Yesterday is ash, tomorrow is smoke; only today does the fire burn.
Nil Desperandum, Fata viem invenient

Auuuggghhhh!  Posessive nouns!  That's the demon I was looking for!

I live within myself

Iím flying
    FLYING
As everything meets and surrounds me
Rising up.. to capture me
And I kick my shoes off

My eyes.. my arms
   Smiling..
Iím flying
No hesitation..
    Just Explosions
No words
    Just Adoration

Just this knowing inside me
From this space outside
Where Iím flying

   And wondering

Where the fear went?
