"There's someone out there for everyone-even if you need a pickaxe, a compass,
and night goggles to find them." --Harris K. Telemacher, "L.A. Story"

  odd cliché

Front Page Picks
Devour By Jennifer Lyons.
Midnight Sun By Kyle Parrish.
Both submitted by Kirk, Bleeder-Keeper. I was going over poems I had saved from a poetry class I took in college. I couldn't get permission to post the first, but I've kept up a friendship with the author of the second (who also wrote as it happens on the Blender "Poems and Sonnets" page)
11.38am By deevaa.
A study in time.
Erotic Imagining/Waterfall Poetry by Galadrial, painting by deevaa.
A collaboration. Besides the fact that these are both excellent works on their own, I like the way they play off of each other
Sweet Dreams By Tat2dAngel (tat2dangel@chickmail.com).
Tat2dAngel is a new contributor to the Blender Board
reunion d'amour By Madison.
The weather almost becomes a person in this one.
stamped By the guppy.
Guppy is always a surprise.
adoration By kevin urenda.
My favorite work from Kevin this month was sent in on the first day-- I think he's at his best when he's at his most compact.
seduced by no emotion By anonymous.
The zenlike nature of the title belies the story that lurks in this piece.
through the streets of anywhere By Charles Bukowski.
Submitted by Misti Velvet Rainwater. from Play the Piano Drunk Like a Percussion Instrument Until the Fingers Begin to Bleed a Bit
Translucent Gold By Misti Velvet Rainwater.
Misit's often very earthy in her writing; this work strives to transcend.
Tales of Brave Ulysses By Eric Clapton.
Submitted by Megs.
Veronica By nick.
I think the ending of this work may have been cut off, but it still works pretty well. Plus, I'm a sucker for the name "Veronica". (With or without a K)
The Moon can not be Stolen By Niya (lovebee@vnet.net).
As much as anything else I adore the title.
From His Eyes
Affair in my Mind
Two by Megs. The first is a work of longing, the second goes to show that along with the name "veronica" and titles involving the cosmos, I'm a sucker for literary namedropping.
Meeting Emily By Ken Gause--gausek@cna.org.
A longer prose piece. I think it could use some pruning, but it still say some interesting things.
Nancy By GT. Submitted by roykolbrod@aol.com.
A true-to-life work.
Letter to a Lover By Toklas.
Toklas writes as... poetically (I think is the only correct word) as always. These poems make writing look effortless (which is quite different from poetry that looks like little effort went into it).
Heart on Sleeve Corner
All the remaining heartsongs sent to the Blender last month.
