Still going with the lazy summer flow...

We continue to interrupt regular possiblegospel programming while lots of bloggers remain on vacation with stuff like:


Timepiece

Slow-gathering and known
By gravity alone,
A replete drop plops once.
One terse slap, then boundlessly unsounded,
Precisely bookmarked by the universe.

Came by t'see if there was anything new, and there was...
but, dang! I've felt that slap before, too. And they weren't no velvet gloves.

Where oh where is that wonderful slide
that lets us just get by and glide
through life, and maybe some girl's panties t'see?
Oh, shoot! I know. It's just fantasy.

Happy Summer Darius! it's been a lazy one for us too!

English poetry baffles me. No matter how hard I try I just can't understand it, there is something fundamentally different between it and Russian poetry for example. I hope one day I will "get it." :-)

Please revisit the comments section of my latest post when you get a minute.

If a drop falls in the forest and no one hears it ... :-)

Was just following links and stumbled upon your blog. I'm trying really hard not to be in the silent majority anymore, so I just wanted to tell you that I enjoyed my visit and will be back for more!

good one.

Lovely. I like the idea of ripples being precisely bookmarked (again and again and again, or would it be all one?)

I'm about ready to be done with summer. This hasn't been one of my favorite seasons this year. The news of the world plus people melting in the heat, just none of it seems to have a good side.

BONEMAN: OK now, just because that last post somehow ended up involving sex with trees, I have no plans to involve it with raindrops or other natural phenomena...

KATHY: You too - For some reason it seems like this summer more people I know than usual are hitting the road in spite of gas prices.

MATTHEW: Thanks Matt, and no problem -

SH: Hmm... You're making me realize I've never even read any Russian poetry. When I was in my late teens I went through a major Tolstoy/Dostoevsky stage though and was blown away - the incredible psychological nuance and realism. You read something like Anna Karenina or War and Peace and feel like you've known real human beings, and way better than you know most people in real life!

WITHIN WITHOUT: OK, just did...

CRYSTAL: Yeah, and that almost happened with this particular drop. Lucky for it that I was there to hear I guess...

Unless the reverse was true and I only became real when I heard the sound it made...

GHOST PARTICLE: Hadn't thought of it like that, but that's true. Only thing I ever wrote with gravity in it! So now I'm reading yours and thinking maybe there ought to be "scientific Haiku" or something...

ROB: Rob, thanks for stopping by. And I didn't exactly give you a lot to comment on here! But for now I'm slowing the pace in keeping with what seems to me to be the general slower summer blogging pace.

KNOWN STRANGER, thank you.

LILLIE: Maybe the whole universe is a calibrated "timepiece" or a bookmarked book - guess that's what I had in mind. Hadn't thought about the ripples (there was an actual drop involved but it landed on land!) so it's interesting what can be inferred even in something so brief.

PO PATRICIA: Same here...

Nice poem, it made me smile for some reason!

Y'know I actually put a comment here yesterday...wonder what happened to it. Twas the first one, too!

Oh and the one I deleted above...sorry, wrong place!

 
At 8:01 AM, Blogger Darius said...

LEILA, thanks. I guess we're in synch, I just now posted to your blog (but mine was a goofy comment.)

Blogger's been behaving lately, so don't know how your comment got eaten. After that month or so of Blogger acting up, now I always copy comments before I post them just in case...

guess the summer is gr8 over there, rite here in Nigeria, it is damned cold.

Happy summer to u.I hope ur getting some rain in ur area.

 
At 11:25 AM, Blogger gautami tripathy said...

What lazy? My school reopened, I fell and dislocated my elbow.I still wrote short verses. Do you call that Lazy?

 
At 12:05 PM, Blogger Darius said...

CHRISTABELLE: Really?? I guess it's all relative... How cold does it get in Nigeria? But I guess I wouldn't know if you told me because you'd say centigrade or... celsius?? I only know farenheit, which I don't even know how to spell...

Changing the subject then...

GAUTAMI: Yes but I fell and broke both elbows and my teeth, and wrote today's post after allowing someone to stick a pencil in my right ear.

"bookmarked by the universe"

That's great!

I double-dare you to say

'A replete drop plops once'

20 times, as fast as you can.

Actually the whole thing clung to the roof of my brain while I was waiting for that drop to plop. Like Tom Petty said, the waiting is the hardest part. Excellent economy of scale.

I cant wait for SUMMA in Aus!

Keshi.

Somehow it makes sense, must be 'intelligent design' built in and unavoidable, like an Absolute Truth or something.

But it looks like you snatched a word from a blog here and a blog there and built a collage of blogwords, it is a fine piece of art, First Prize to you Darius.

 
At 2:55 AM, Blogger Leila said...

Maybe an error of my own?

Maybe we are in synch! I'm just a whole lot nicer...

 
At 6:38 AM, Blogger Darius said...

KEVIN B, thanks. At least I'd like to think stuff gets bookmarked. Some stuff. Other stuff, I'd frankly like to see the pages get torn out...

HOMO ESCAPEONS: Better not, might splatter somebody...

KESHI: They have summa wrestling over there too?

JIM, thanks, but truth be told, there was just this actual literal drop on my balcony railing. A few years ago. And it fell and plopped and that's when I wrote the thing. It just took a few years for me to post it. Guess it wasn't replete enough to plop into the blogosphere yet...

LEILA: But I still did kind of like my generalization though. I have to look back at your blog now to see if you complimented me on it.

That would REALLY prove how nice you are...

no such luck...hehehe

LEILA: Well then!

RAMA, thanks, I'll be checking in at some point. My blogging "rounds" are slower for now, about once a week for maybe another few weeks.

I'm pleased that I am getting a small sense of who you are. Thank you.

Ah Darius the ever luverly mind-reading brilliant one! How ever did you know that I would finally have time, energy, and connection to make it out here again ... But not the capacity for usual mind-blowing brilliant possiblegossible programming!

This piece is spendid.

I gotta admit luv, your poetry is home to me. Thanks for this bit of rest.

"A replete drop plops once."

Enjoy this moment. It is already gone.

Not really a vacation for me. More like an unexpected hiatus. Did you even know I was gone? :)

 
At 8:11 AM, Blogger Darius said...

HI GUYS - Just noticed these three comments on this past post, I guess not much to say at this point except, Renee, yes, noticed you were gone. And now, per my last post, I've about to leave for a while but will hang onto your url -
