happy birthday lady wordsmith

/bark bark bark

a poem for the Lady Wordsmith

there's a psychedelic vision
of an old crone divisioned
a muerta? not quite
a sunfish in flight
hooked and twisting and pulling in fight
not going gently into the night

#5 means i offer this photochoppy
a gift to da lady from the K9 rotty

the lady's listing of forty wishes
mostly i read that it's freedom she misses
marinated in thoughts of her corazon
i dogpaddled a sea of digital foam
and rode on the bubbles to her home
but when i arrived she were not alone

black and white flickering of film noir
darius and BoHemia at the bar
horsehead nebulas wearing belts of orion
somewhere behind me a bridge was sighing
for the lady say a crone is halfway to dying
well forget that grrrrl, sip up! we be flying


hear that long and lonesome whistle?
let's us write the bums epistle!
go lady go lady go lady go
i wish ya happy birthday happy birthday dontcha know?

/(soft) grrrrr

K9, you continue to amaze me with your skillful words, Sancho would be so proud but Mr Dela Mancha would also appreciate the tribute on such honest fervor.

K9, I'm sure Lady Wordsmith will love the birthday thoughts. Very gracious of you, as always.

So now I say, Happy Birthday Lady Wordsmith. Many happy returns.

OK... who's Lady Wordsmith? There is no link for those of us that have only recently become fond of the Rotty's brilliance as with the Mayden.

K9, gotta put a link in the tribute, so as we know in which whom you honor :)

melinda777: the first sentance "a poem for lady wordsmith" has a link click on "lady wordsmith." i dont know why it wont show as another color...but i use safari and there are no options in the composing mode for changing the font color. she's also listed on my blog roll. but you are right!!

mayden: a prince? (soft) grrrrrrr sunlight achieved! we'll see how the joy part plays out...

lady jane: thank you. soon i will have to do a foodie image for a certain literary lady..the colors you use to head your posts at eyre affairs? i cant do that with safari. a "known" problem with interfacing blogger and macOSX grrrr!!

Q: you think im tilting at the windmills with all this workload for the ladies??? fervor is right!

aunty: freya got her own page finally. check her out on the blogroll.

enemy, xdell and boyedie: thanks for her birthday wishes...but she's MIA. probably jumped a boxcar and went into the great wide open....

sorry about that -- a minor correction...

i like the graphic look & feel of this one, k9 -- drawing, illustration, collage, photocopy -- meaningful, symbolic imagery, & all nicely assembled -- reminds me a bit of Doré (illustrating Dante) a work i am especially fond of -- nicely done, dog

my condolences on the braves' loss to the giants this evening.

of course, i can't say i'm too sorry about it.

frankly, i'm relieved and stunned that benitez didn't lose the game for the giants in the 9th inning.

Ohhh mi Corazon,, you have found and sealed. And sealed for me beside mi Ășnico y verdadero amor!

Dearest K9, know this as truth, you have read me as though you wrote me and for that I can never thank you enough.

And know that though I only surface now - nearly a creator's week since my half crone day. And though your most tender hearted gift lay here in quiet waiting for my eyes to feast . 'Tis my soul that heard you calling from some near muerta.

And to this blessings of blessings for my rebirth. Your gift...it nearly makes me your child...or lover...

Yes. 'tis you know that the path to my threshold is made with the foam of mermaids departed and the pearls their sisters cried for their death.

And yes. 'tis you who know how my own salty jewels painted my face with the yearning for freedom. Day tripping with a desert taste on our tongues and an ocean's roil in our breast. And the scent of newly ancient Asian blooms. All teasing with the clicking call to follow the shadows of the fireworks chaser and the night wing's flight.

A thousand blessings would never make a start for you have managed to start my heart. With pride, and honour, I wear your death mask to suckle at the teats you bear. You have nourished me and fed me energy renewed.

I cannot wait for my return. And to share with you our mutually savage spirited ways.

to you, mi corazon

Did you get my last email? I'm missing at least onefrom you. Let me know what's up. Also, passing a message to Uri if you dont mind...

Towers hit by planes, no doubt./
But look what Dr. Jones found out,/
Seems with a sample, spec'd with ease/
he found Potassium and Manganese/
No other reason they'd be there/
'cept thermate, look it up anywhere/
Molten steel, cut like butter/
and not a word will the media utter/
God damn, it's a disgrace/
No one brave enough to show their face/
Bow down as he wants/
or suffer kiddy piggy taunts/
cowards die a thousand times/
No one stepped up to stop my rhymes/
Your logic's strong. Are you the one?/
To silence me, end the run?/
Gimme a chance. come take a ride./
Soon enough your skills will be on my side...
