I want to see how it ends


??? (title? what title?)

do you ever
wonder if there
is anyone
just like us, in
an alternate
universe, where
we made diff’rent
choices? he asked.
yes, she replied,
but I want to
see how this one
ends.

Holy productive Sunday, Batman!
Or, if you prefer Sesame Street, one, two, three posts, ha-ha-hah! That’s one from the vault, the Count. I don’t think kids today know who he is, which is a shame.

I probably could have mashed all three into one post. But that would have made sense, and I’m dead set against that.

This poem was just me thinking about Doctor Who and how awesome time travel is, and by extension how awesome time in general is. Awesome in the classical sense, not in the modern sense: perhaps awe-inspiring would be better? Whatever, not the point. Boom-de-yada, boom-de-yada, the world is just awesome. If you learn nothing else from my blog, do remember that- this world we live in is an amazing place, and you just gotta get out there and explore it. (She says, from her computer inside her house…) 😛

Friends are Awesome


I’m in such a wonderful mood today! Buzzing with the energy of spring, I think. That, and sitting the patio of my favourite pub with a great friend, nachos and a pint of beer is the best way to dine- we don’t have to do the dishes! 😛

Onto the reason you came here: poetry! This is just something I scribbled down.

untitled or happiness or to be decided when it’s finished

Time is a fickle beast,
Making fools of us all.
At one instant, time leaps forward
And others, it slows to a dreary crawl.
But always the company of friends
Brings wonder and joy to the time we have.
An hour of laughter can mean more
Than a week alone. Home may be where
The heart lives, but love is best found
With a good book, or great companions.

I’m still fixing some other Fibonacci poems, but they’ll be up here before too long. And that bout-rime is still giving me headaches. Plus my novel, but I made a breakthrough with that earlier today, so it will hopefully be much easier from now on.
