Rejoice!
Magical--
Serendipitous--
Sacred, patient slumbering. 

The Real Toads are writing from a fun ink-stained word list this week!

  8. By merely creatively and adroitly editing the word list, you got a poem. Amazing--and quite a distinctive one, too. Looked up the Fibonacci stanza--I see one in my future--though one syllable lines are pretty challenging.

  9. Interesting...reading backward made me understand more of the meaning, I think. Bold brevity, Marian!

  10. That last line got me ~ Good one Marian ~

  11. You have shown so well how just a few words can convey so much. It makes me think of a Madonna statue in a Roman Cathedral.

  12. This is beautifully pithy, and gorgeously spilled. Excellent.
