    You avoid people but research carrion birds! Hannibal Lecter should take lesson. Actually, poem with such a subject could be very introspective or allusional.

    Carrion birds get a bad rap because they are one of nature's recyclers. Hyenas, same story, but it doesn't make them any less amazing as animals in their own right. The Lammargeyer or bearded vulture is one idea I had been kicking around for a while. That and a saying in African lore, the some vultures can fly so high, they fly beyond the present and look into the future. There have been cases of the Ruppell's Vulture of reaching soaring heights of more than 37,000 feet. The Lammergeyer is only slightly further down the list at 24,000 feet. To save the blues of the world, the raff and scaff of the realms must unite. Plundering pelicans, scoffed at rabbits, exiled hyenas, thieving macaques, and dodos. How can such a ramshackle collection of creatures save themselves, muchless, their world?

    Just finished a piece using a rhyme, refrain pattern I've never tried before. Not sure if I love it or hate it. Primary A rhyme like the villanelle, but instead of the refrain word being on the closing line of each tercet, the refrain holds true in the second line of each tercet, with the closing tercet repeating the first line, but rhyming the refrain of the second line. Whacked out, just like our weather at the moment. Two remain...

    Coming Soon: Kettle at the Bone Garden and the Councils of Flight.

    The total now stands at 50.

    I want to thank every single one of you for participating and making it a success. It was a marathon, but a good one. And I must say, one of my hats was reading all of your poetry, and I've seen so many great poems, it was a pleasure

    You all have until tomorrow to finish unfinished work!
