The Ultimate Quivel

Today's Link
Like Kate Moss But Not

Today's Saying
I've written some poetry I don't understand myself.
~Carl Sandburg


Today's Picture
Some of Mom's "babies"
Here is a quivel using next week's Quilly words. It is full of deep thoughts . It brings quivel to the very height of its possibilities. The best part is thanks to Jientge anyone can produce quivel of this quality. Directions at end of the quivel.

Drop Dead Gorgeous

The loudest bacchante who was
After all it is those
the parrots begin to jabber.
Everyone is as God has
by ideas that people live
Jibber jabber of little mice
I daresay one profits more
powers along lines of excellence.
The brain is
less nurturing than a desert.
walk alone on queachy sand
There's always one who
not its place
irritating details of outer life.
When the eagles are silent



And now the directions
Go to "wikipedia." Hit “random”
or click http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random
The first random wikipedia article you get is the title of your poem.

Next take and write three sentences of three or five words each using one of Quilly’s words for the day. These are your first, sixth, and eleventh lines

Go to "Random quotations"
or click http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3
1) Select the first three or five words of the very first quote of the page for the second line of your poem.

2) Then the last three or five words of the next quote of the page is the third line of your poem.

3) Select the first three or five words of the third quote of the page for the fourth line, and then alternate as above until you’ve made it to the last quote…inserting the Quilly lines in the proper places.

Go to flickr and click on “explore the last seven days”
or click http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days
Fifth picture, no matter what it is, will be your poem image. This part is optional.

News from Pigeon Falls
The little town in my basement where the trains still run, dragons fly, and life is back to normal
The mystery deepens as last night the White Rabbit was returned to its proper place. The door again was locked. In fact a new lock had been put on and only the person coming on duty this morning and the director had a key. Again the alarm didn’t go off. But here is the white Rabbit. It looks a bit cleaner than before it vanished. It seems to work more smoothly and wink more realistically but it certainly hasn’t been hurt. So where has it been for a day? How did it get taken out and put back with all the doors locked? It is all so strange.
In addition to the constable ,who got his training by watching CSI , Tommy UK and the Tommy Club are also investigating the incident. The White Rabbit has been wiped clean of fingerprints and nothing seems to have been left by the perpetrator either night. But Tommy UK is sure there has to be some clue and all they have to do is find it.

Wrap UP
Great day. The last of the snow is going. Betty took Maggie for a walk. I visited all of yesterday's blogs that left comments and a few others. Breathing was good. No bids on my trains at this point. Now I need a breathing treatment.

How about, the white rabbit just left -- all by its own self -- to have a bath?

What a great poem.
Here in allegory and metaphor you have captured what it means to be human.
From the inability of the brain to find God to man's attempt to live in the alcohol haze of silence and constant talk.
Years from now philosophers will point to this poem as pivotal.

It must be odd having so many brothers and sisters for such a short period of time.

I'm glad you had a good day and I love the baby pictures. Good post.

By the way, that was a sad story about what happened to you when looking for the flag. I have memories that are brought up by triggers like that. Oh well.

What cute babies! But I think that I'll leave poetry to the professionals. AND, Is the leprechaun may be having a wee bit of fun with the folks from Pigeon Falls?
