"Unless a man shall endure to the end, in following the example of the Son of the living God, he cannot be saved…. Wherefore, ye must press forward with a steadfastness in Christ, having a perfect brightness of hope, and a love of God and of all men. Wherefore, if ye shall press forward, feasting upon the word of Christ, and endure to the end,…ye shall have eternal life".

--The Book of Mormon
   (2 Nephi 31:16, 20)

Weather: Friday/Saturday... o'cast & cool. Sabbath Sunday... crisp temperatures and sunny blue skies. Monday partly o'cast to completely o'cast... Tuesday's rain dampened the spirit a bit.

Looking forward to the solstice (December 21?)... I'm longing for days to gain more daylight time. Tired, runny nose... comimg dow'in wid a code?

My entries... " Poetry in Motion "... & Haiku Contest daily contests:

Starlight Dreams

Romantic souls shared
starlight dreams

Our fervour
shone luminous
a perfect fire

Concupiscence answered
we were lovers

:Bobby Nichols



Barren the shade's path
Ancient megaliths cast down
Runes in ruin strewn

:Bobby Nichols

Take blindly
with sting

Venal ennui
mendacious being

:Bobby Nichols


Starlight Dreams "... a love poem.

"Desolation " a Haiku: ... Megaliths came to mind in viewing the black and white photo for inspiration... a clouded sky above a worn path surrounded by sparse weedy grass with large stony outcroppings heaped about. 'Runes' are what might have been on such ancient ruins of druidic bent.

"Thief " a Haiku: ... The 'tiles' were few (about 100 words and partial words/alphabet) and skewed toward thanksgiving of a sort. I sought more obscure verbiage perusing the dictionary (my dog chewed "Funk & Wagnalls") looking to combine 'tiles' or superimpose same: venal..... ennui..... mendacious. 'Mendacious' was formed by superimposing the tile-letter 'm' and the tile-word 'end' and the tile-letter 'a' (in that order) over the tile-word 'delicious'. Not entirely happy with the result, except in the fact that the poem sorta'/kinda' rhymes... and I stayed away from turkey day references. My poetic interpretation: Steal at thine own hazard... thy corruptible,bored, false one.

"... having a perfect brightness of hope..." ...

Hona sainara !!!
