Grab life by the balls. -Slobberknocker
We cannot change the cards we're dealt just how we play the hand
Experience is what you get when you didn't get what you wanted
It's pretty easy to be smart when you're parroting smart people
-Randy Pausch


A lady’s cloak drawn tight to her chest
Pale tatters of a weary ghost
Stalks of grass, waving silver needles

A pointed dagger, stabbing the truth
Swish! Elegant garments flowing in the dance
An eerie, eternal, wavering sound
Feeling of silk fine as water
A delicate, rare sweet in your throat
Gliding and spinning, running and prancing
An enormous orb, battling the night
A slithering serpent, poised for the strike
Bright eyes of the wary wolves
The patient plodding of a unicorn’s hooves
Fireworks crackling their best
A tender mother, singing the world to rest

I love how you express the color silver with such poignant imagery! I especially like the line 'bright eyes of the wary wolves' I could see their eyes in the darkness

This is beautiful!  It's really inspiring that you could turn a simple color into such an imagery-thick poem.  Great job :)  Hey, if you get the chance could you check out some of my work? Thanks!
