Another fine month for works, as you can see from the selection below.

Plus this month we feature a quick hit review of a classic romantic film, The Way We Were. From Babs to Maynard Ferguson, it's in there!

As always, read and enjoy!
--Kirk, Blender-Keeper     

Once Me - Ali
"With every lyric / I could muster, I've loved some part of you"... nice.

I'm always a sucker for the odd astronaut metaphor.

his morning coffee - darwin
Kind of the flipside of the B.K.'s work.

"the little monster" - willtobe1
"Sex is the little monster under everybody's bed"...

Indian Summer - briana kassia
Some wonderful sense imagery.

forbidden fruit is always in season - chris
A lot of works have their best stuff at the end, but I love the middle stanza of this one.

hot, sunny days - musicalduck
I'm going to miss hot sunny days.

BREATHE! - rennielorca
Breathing is good.

dead end on dark alleys than crossroads in wide highways - lilla
Questions hunting for answers.

yearning - aparajita
How things creep on you.

Leave me alone - blakey
Relatively few submissions on the 'Blender make rhymes work, but this one has a lovely lilting ending.

Incredibly Broken - Irongirl
This piece has a lot to like but I think it was the Space Needle reference that grabbed me, having just returned from a Seattle business trip.

my dance with the devils daughter - i'm just him
Another nice close by i.j.h. Ever danced with the devil's daughter in the pale moon light?

Letter I wouldn't bother to send and he wouldn't bother to read - Abogada / Abogadalbny
Not the happiest note to end on this month, but a tough nugget of a prose piece.

Blender Feature Review
"The Way We Were"... the way movies were, before they all had to have easy endings.

Heart on Sleeve Corner
135 more heartsongs sent to the Blender last month.
