Favorite Quote:
"...I wish none of this had happened." "So do all who live to see such times, but that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us."

Morning star
blue clouds
driving bucketfuls of orchids
mauve, ivory, cinnamon-red
Molten stone
The oceans are all dead
salt stings
festering wounds
burned skins of plants
sickly sugar-sweet
like orchid pollen
like cinnamon.

The author's comments:
A lot of spew here, however, there is repitition concerning the orchid pollen and cinnamon, which interests me. I have a color theme here, I feel... interesting.
