I haven\'t seen much in the way of poetry posted here.  I feel compelled to share.  This is a poem I wrote after my grandmother died.  She is the last part.  The first part is about wasted life.

Grim Reaper

There is darkness
Before falling
When the reaper mows what was sewn

A bed of death and rotted orchards
The face of the unknown
Black hood hung over bad omen
To hide evil that is creeping

The jagged sickle swung
And blood is spilled
The gleaming chill an icy blade
To beauty that was shunned


There is darkness
Before rising
When the reaper eats what was grown

A flower bed and ripened orchards
The face of compassion
Black hood hung over soft shadow
To hide eyes that are weeping

The jagged sickle swung
And life is poured
The glowing core a radiant light
To beauty that endured

I looked around...I thought I had posted this poem somewhere yet i didn\'t find it...so here goes my poem...one I am very fond of...

Oppossum Alone

Late dark night
No stars in sight
Speeding along...
Something in sight

Blindly starring
at the headlights
Stitting very still...
Oppossum alone
Near fresh road kill
A loved one ....guaranteed
Alone so lost...and hopeless

My heart ached
thank god I missed
so painful another did not
I could not help but cry then,
when I think of the oppossum
alone
i do...still



BIG HUGZ!  ;D

Joy follows a pure thought like a shadow that never leaves.

Thank you ZQ.

I\'m not much of a haikuer.

I felt your poem as well.  Actually, that exact scenario happened to me within the past month.  I swerved, endangering human life.  In my ideal world animals would have a road crossing instinct.

Alone by Edgar Allan Poe

From childhood\'s hour I have not been
As others were---I have not seen
As others saw---I could not bring
My passions from a common spring.
From the same source I have not taken
My sorrow; I could not awaken
My heart to joy at the same tone;
And all I lov\'d, I loved alone.
Then---in my childhood---in the dawn
Of a most stormy life---was drawn
From ev\'ry depth of good and ill
The mystery which binds me still:
From the torrent, or the fountain,
From the red cliff of the mountain,
From the sun that \'round me roll\'d
In its autumn tint of gold---
From the lightning in the sky
As it pass\'d me flying by---
From the thunder and the storm,
And the cloud that took the form
(When the rest of Heaven was blue)
Of a demon in my view.

In another thread there was a call for some DIY Buckethead swank.  I don\'t have any Buckethead swank, but this is something I just finished.  I have a few different decks of cards used for Divination.  I had them all wrapped in cloth.  Then I thought, hey, why not make them all a nice house.  This is for my I Ching deck.

Well, I\'m pretty excited about finishing up my first video.  I\'m still a little batty from staring at the screen for too long...but here it is.

Truth:  it's OK if they don't understand.  if you follow it, stay true to it, and respect it, you could be in store for the greatest journey you could ever imagine.

Thanks for the positive responses.

And thank you Zintar.  It was your videos that inspired me to have a little fun and venture outside the realm of family home video.  Although I do have some great video of my kid crying at her birthday party that might go on my channel.

No problem, your clip was cool. I am very happy to inspire you.  By the way, I have a candle that I saw in your
clip. Neat-o ! Keep experimenting. I am currently having a blast here learning how to edit and author stuff. Check my most current videos to see what I mean. Up until last week, my "editing" consisted of using a pause button on a video camera or stand alone burner. hehehe. Now I will be able to get pretty
far out  ;)

No.  It\'s some random idiot who wouldn\'t move away from the bell while I was trying to take a picture.

Yes it is me, at Marie Selby Botanical Gardens.

Here is a video I made to, what I feel, is one of the greatest songs ever recorded.

This is it for me for a while, as far as videos go.
