poetry challenge: Free verse poem.

by Harry

Good luck everyone with the free verse challenge.

Free Verse is an irregular form of poetry in which the content free of traditional rules of versification, (freedom from fixed meter or rhyme).

In moving from line to line, the poet’s main consideration is where to insert line breaks.

Some ways of doing this include breaking the line where there is a natural pause or at a point of suspense for the reader.

Go here to take part.

Do you miss a period.

by Harry

Do you miss a period, are you worried, do you even care about it, do you know you missed a period.

I think missing a period or several periods doe’s not matter at all, do you or other people really care or do they even know when you missed a period, its not the end of the world, life will carry on as normal.

To me a period is nothing to worry about, its either there are not, its not going to hurt anyone even the person who missed the period.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

by 'Ard Pete

Originally posted on Evolution Of Insanity:

happy-valentines-day Valentine’s Day; the one day of the year that has a double edged sword. On the one hand it’s a chance for couples to show how much they love each other, spoil the ones they love and spent the day together.

On the other hand it’s also a chance for single people to be reminded what losers they are for being alone.

When I was in a relationship some 21 months ago (that shit goes fast) I remember treating my girl at the time to a trip to Nottingham down south. Paid for a 4 star hotel, took her out for a meal they took her back to said hotel for a good smashing. When you’re in a relationship you don’t realize how many couples there really are.

Since we split up in May of 2012 I have been alone, I can’t even remember last Valentine’s; this year however there…

Magic Rises (Kate Daniels #6) by Ilona Andrews

by Devina a Lemon flavoured Jellybean

via Goodreads, click to see more info.

Rated it: 5 Stars

Recommends it to: Generally the Young Adult crowd into the urban fantasy realm. If you liked The Edge series (haven’t read it yet myself), chances are you might like this one as well.

GR blurb

Mercenary Kate Daniels and her mate, Curran, the Beast Lord, are struggling to solve a heartbreaking crisis. Unable to control their beasts, many of the Pack’s shapeshifting children fail to survive to adulthood. While there is a medicine that can help, the secret to its making is closely guarded by the European packs, and there’s little available in Atlanta.

Kate can’t bear to watch innocents suffer, but the solution she and Curran have found threatens to be even more painful. The European shapeshifters who once outmaneuvered the Beast Lord have asked him to arbitrate a dispute—and they’ll pay him in medicine. With the young people’s survival and the Pack’s future at stake, Kate and Curran know they must accept the offer—but they have little doubt that they’re heading straight into a trap…

Unity, a quote from Perks of Being a Wallflower

by Devina a Lemon flavoured Jellybean

A perfect group shot. (via http://www.alicemarvels.com)

“And all the books you’ve read have been read by other people. And all the songs you’ve loved have been heard by other people. And that girl that’s pretty to you is pretty to other people. And that if you looked at these facts when you were happy, you would feel great because you are describing ‘unity.”

The music this week

by Devina a Lemon flavoured Jellybean

Hey there. I can practically hear my echo. Haven’t been around lately but I’m here now sooo … This week is ending on high nerves and sweet depression. Music usually helps a lot, that’s why I can’t go a day without listening, it’s like a light in the darkness. I’m all for the older decades so some of these won’t surprise you. Here’s what’s been on my radio waves:

It’s Friday and fortunately for them they’re in love. Not me. I am a solitary soul and love is a dream.

I find that I liked the German version better. This translates to 99 Red balloons but I read somewhere that it’s actually ‘Air’ Balloons. I think the change was for political reasons, air balloons and the war, or I could be reading into it wrong. Nena’s voice has this breathy tone and I think it went well with the hard groovy beats. My family has gotten used to my dancing madly to this by now.

Need I say anything? This is sweet! I realize that the music change with the times and influences but I do wish there were more songs like this these days.

United Nations Condemn Vatican.

by Harry

Originally posted on dribblingpensioner:

type102The united nations report out to-day condemns the Vatican for not doing enough to protect children and to name and prosecute paedophile Priests who carried out these acts.

People thought the new Pope would turn things around and get this all sorted out to the benefit of the church, it’s people but most of all the children, but all he has done is to start an enquiry which will take about twenty years to report back with the findings that nothing took place and everything is fine.
