    A strong hunch.

    Yea, Plath had a tendency to throw out an image that is visually and mentally disturbing. It's great!

    All right, friends:

    Here's something different for you to listen to...a little Christmas cheer in almost-July! This is me accompanying (playing the piano) for my young choir in Colorado Springs. The song is called "Christmas Stars."

    (Inspired by Blindart, who is actually displaying the same pic in her avatar that appears in our concert programs.)

    Wonderful Mantenna. You two (this includes you ix) really should try out for AI3.

    Speaking of songs. The following is my one, and so far only, attempt at writing a song. I wrote it for my girlfriend, whom I don't get to see nearly as much as I'd like to (one of them long distance things), the last time we were together. This is really, really high on the sappiness meter.

    "Empty Bed"

    When I sleep at night,
    I wonder what you're doing,
    Are your eyes closed,
    dreaming of me,
    or are you wide awake,
    like I am...
    thinking of me...
    thinking of me.

    [CHORUS]

    And the pillows,
    they don't feel so soft anymore,
    the blankets,
    don't keep me all that warm,
    In this empty, empty bed of mine.

    [END CHORUS]

    Why do you have to be
    so far away...
    so far away...
    Why do you have to be
    not next to me...
    not next to me.

    [CHORUS]

    I don't understand
    why
    I don't comprehend
    why
    I don't wanna pretend
    why
    you're not here.

    [CHORUS]

    So open your eyes,
    open your arms...
    and wake up next to me.
    And this heart won't be so lonely...
    and this bed won't be so empty...
    anymore...
    and this bed won't be so empty...
    anymore.
    I know someday you'll have a beautiful life, I know you'll be a star in somebody else's eyes... but why... why... why can't it be me?

    Hazy -- I have a strong urge to make my own melody to your lyrics... but I can't, because it's nearly 1 am. Shhh... I'll hafta wait until tomorrow It's very beautiful!!

    Firegirl - I liked all those poems Especially the chains one. I'm the type that appreciates rhyming poems Maybe it's that pop-music-lovin' girl inside me -Ahem- not that I'm comparing your poems to pop music. I know some people wouldn't take that as a compliment

    Mantenna - the kids are adorable, and the piano sounds great! wow... I didn't know children could make harmony that well and memorize all that!! Maybe the choir I was in while I was younger wasn't talented... hmm hehe.

    Everyone is talented in their own ways. Besides, it is the thought of sharing the talent that makes it special. Just trying makes it worth it all.

    Here is my attempt at poetry.
    DISCLAIMER:
    I have not done this before and don't know the rules.

    These were done before 3a.m., which might not have been a good thing, but the mood hit me.

    If I go back to keep correcting it, it will never be posted, so I'll just take a chance.

    Lastly, please do not compare to Bloonman, Firegirl or Hazy, otherwise the difference will be glaring.


    SAFETY

    The world is harsh
    Outside it is cold
    I have the protection
    Of my cage

    In the morning the cover
    Is lifted off the top
    To let the sun
    And sweet air in

    Fresh food awaits me
    My water always there
    This perch is very strong
    With the bells I play

    My cage is always neat
    There is never any want
    They whistle and coo to me
    For my amusement

    My wings grow weary
    But never from much use
    My nails are too long
    From lack of walking

    My eyes are focused
    On the same daily
    What was once comforting
    Now fades before me

    The bells are now trite
    Fresh food tastes stale
    The perch is shaky
    The water chokes me

    The cage is now smaller
    The world has grown larger
    My muscles are now weak
    From lack of use

    Iíve not learn to walk
    Iím too afraid to fly
    This cage is closing in
    My existence is threatened

    Inside the cage itís harsh
    Outside it is warm
    I have the prison
    Of my cage

    That's the thing... there are none.

    For a first attempt I am very impressed. And you didn't rhyme !!(that's hazy's rule)
