SCARING UP FISH... TAW's MASCULINE CHALLENGE...


Gone fishin, ' By a shady, wady pool 
 I'm wishin' I could be that kind of fool 
 I'd say "no more work for mine" 
 On my door, I'd hang a sign, 
"gone fishin'" 
Instead of just wishin'

Louis Daniel Armstrong

WE CAN CHANGE THE WORLD... SPA's IDOL CHALLENGE...


Love them or hate them (and really who on earth hates them) 
These four unlikely blokes from Liverpool 
with their intoxicating tunes, unforgettable lyrics, long hair, 
and radical ideas changed the world forever. 
Music, fashion, political thought, and social attitudes. 
They were and are the soundtrack of my life, my children's 
and now my grandchildren. 
I loved them then, and I love 'em now.

JOY IN ROSES... DM's TEXT CHALLENGE...


Tell me If I'm wrong, and this is crazy 
But I got you this rose 
And I need to know 
Will you let it die or let it grow? 
Die or let it go?

DRAGONFLY DELIGHT... SPA's DRAGONFLY CHALLENGE...


And when the roses are half-bud soft flowers 
And lovely as the king of flies has come 
It was a fleeting visit, all too brief 
In three short minutes, he had been and gone 
He rested there upon an apple leaf 
A gorgeous opal crown sat on his head 
Although the garden is a lovely place 
Was it worthy of so fine a guest 
Oh
Oh 
Dragonfly

CRUEL SPURS... DIGITAL WHISPER's COWBOY CHALLENGE...


My heroes have always been cowboys. 
And they still are, it seems. 
Sadly, in search of, but one step in back of, 
Themselves and their slow-movin' dreams.

WAITIN ON THE MAIL... DIGITAL WHISPER's MAILBOX CHALLENGE...


Standing alone at the side of a road
 rusty edifice of hopes, happiness,
loneliness and apathy.
In gentler times 
destination of all good news
and sorrow,
now an empty haven for spiders
or the occasional bird.

THE PATH YOU TAKE... TAW's FRAME IT CHALLENGE...


I shall be telling this with a sigh 
Somewhere ages and ages hence: 
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I- 
I took the one less traveled by, 
And that has made all the difference.

EGGSASPERATION... DM's EGG CHALLENGE...


They say time will 
Make all this go away 
But it's time that has taken my tomorrows 
And turned them into yesterdays 
And once again that rising sun is droppin' on down 
And once again you my friend are nowhere to be found 
And it's so hard to do 
And so easy to say 
But sometimes, sometimes 
you just have to walk away 
Walk away
