Camping out on a lonely trail,
listening to the cold wind wail,
far away from civilized wiles,
not another soul for miles.
Close at hand I heard a sound,
before I could even look around,
an old man sat down by my fire,
ancient he was and thin as wire.
We sat awhile without a word,
the quiet broke and this I heard,
"I saw them in a dream, you know!
Brother Wolf and Brother Crow."
Then, not another word he said,
he closed his eyes, I thought him dead,
but as the dawn grew close and neared,
the strange old man just disappeared.
I've been rendering stuff and not bothering to upload it here, partly because dA keeps giving me errors during uploading. This took eight tries.
But I liked it and sharing is good. I didn't want anyone to think I was dead
Okay, I didn't, but I could have.
No, probably not
Okay, okay! I made the whole thing about chicken humping up! I am pond-scum!
I don't know how I'll live through the shame of falling hook, line & sinker for your "drunken southern boy" deceit. Great, now I have to move. I'll lose all my friends. When my dog finds out how gullible I am, he'll probably bite me. The barmaid slapped me. And to top it off, the good Sisters of Mercy send me hate mail!
Maybe I went to far with that "hate mail" thingy. You think?
And some of the brothers, they act rather sisterly.
Hang out for days with their friends from the rectory
See them washing their sheets? See them making the bed?
If God's in the house, he'd strike them all dead!
Sorry - best I could think of on short notice
I HAVE been wondering where you were. Glad you're okay.
I;m glad too. But I actually did finally realize that when someone with the annoying number of terminals I have just stops rendering, people might wonder.
The all concept is like open our eyes into a inner dream. Congratulations!
What the name of the book? I just finished Vampire Academy series, lent to me by my kindhearted daughter, have two series left on my reader and one Dean Koontz book and then I'm out of reads.
What Dean Koontz book do you have? I think I read some of his a long time ago.
A new one called INNOCENCE. I've read most of his and Stephan King's books over the years. The only real difference is that Goodness wins almost all the time with Koontz.
Yeah, the free books on Amazon range from the 90% that suck through the 10% that don't. ALL the good reads that I've gotten free there are the first in a series, often with six or seven total at $2.99 - $6 a book.
So I check for them at the public library when I can get there. If they have them, I finish the series, otherwise I don't.
But, they had series on sale over Christmas for $1.99 so I bought four. I was great, one really sucked and one (I'm reading it now) only sucks a little. The fourth looks great, but is not to be read by the fearful or squeamish. I'm saving it for a night I'm depressed to give me a break in the blues.
I am up; just getting to .
