Very well done. Very sombre subject. We're blessed that no one died up here durring the fires last month. Many, many lost homes, but no deaths. Not that I know of anyway.

Thanks for your good wishes, folks. My family and I are not affected directly, thankfully, but several friends have lost property, and more are still evacuees. There are friends from the Lake Arrowhead district I haven't heard from yet... unsure.gif


--------------------
Where now the horse and the rider? Where is the horn that was blowing?
Where is the helm and the hauberk, and the bright hair flowing?
Where is the hand on the harpstring, and the red fire glowing?
Where is the spring and the harvest and the tall corn growing?
They have passed like rain on the mountain, like a wind in the meadow
The days have gone down in the West behind the hills into shadow
Who shall gather the smoke of the dead wood burning
Or behold the flowing years from the Sea returning?

silverdragon,

Your poem was very fitting. The devastation must be horrible which I can't imagine. My best wishes that everyone will come out of it alive. But sad to report that I heard on the news today that a fireman who was battling the blaze lost his life. God help them all! sad.gif

Here is a poem that is a sort of a riddle. Tell me if you can guess the answer of:

Who Am I?

My species comes in various shapes,
Colors, and styles:
Horizontal, sometimes vertical,
Of wood or metal.

My life may seem mundane,
Because I stand all day
In the rain, in the snow,
In the wind and blazing sun.

But I stand proudly,
Eagerly awaiting my parcel.
I must be special, because people come daily
Checking my mouth for their parchments.

Roisin-Teagan,

The first thing that came to my mind is a Mail Box.

How close am I?

Richard,

You are on the money. I know it is so obvious, but believe me, many people I've shown this to don't have a clue. I guess submitting it was a little lame, but maybe fun too. rolleyes.gif

Roisin-Teagan,

Don't feel so bad about it. I posted a Riddle in the Irish Forum, (plug here) that was so, what I thought, easy. I figured it out before I had finished typing it. There were other two people had an answer for it and they both were right.

So it happens. But don't stop trying. I can't always be right.

Oh, but Richard of course you are always right. And I'm sure your wife completely agrees with your selfassessment. rolleyes.gif

Good != difficult

I think the mailbox one is pretty good. Maybe it's just the difference in the crowd here. It must not be *That* obvious, or else everyone you'd been showing it to surely would have gotten it. Ya see, when they get that easy is when you make them so funny that people are ROTFLMAO.

Aaediwen,

Thanks for the compliment. This particular piece was written in my Creative Writing class as an exercise. We had to write about an inaniment object without mentioning its name. For what it's worth it was fun writing. wink.gif

On the Hunt

Cunning,
Black and sleek,
Green-eyed;
Appetite not yet sated---driven

Lurking,
exhaling vapors
In a cold winter night,
Heart untamed

Moon splashes across the veiled forest
When clouds give way
A rustle in the brush,
Announces unknowing prey

Eyes lock on,
Claws draw out,
Body Extends,
Every muscle tautens

Hot blood pulses,
Rushing to the deepest parts
Senses keen, strength restrained,
Ready to pounce and devour
