    Everything in this world is an illusion and its good to know that even fear passes into truth. The truth that being created in God's image has nothing to do with the physical body. And there are happy endings for all when the vale is lifted from their eyes.-------Stopped by for a visit David;your friend Michael

    David; This is all so true. Thousands of lives have been lost like this and in other ways too. It is just becaus to some people all that matters is mone and not human lives. Thanks for sharing. Lucilla

    David, hon, I loved this challenge (even if I @#!% ^ like a trucker while I worked on it for 2 days!) and then, to my horror, I realized I did it wrong (errr? I think?) so I removed my entry. Now, I'm totally confused. This example shows what I ended up doing. Your first lines do what I did line 1) start with a con and end with a con. Line 2) start with a vow end with a vow... Can you clarify? I may give it another go ... and cry doing it (lol! JK!) but I thought I'd better check! (cont)

    If this examples first five lines are okay, then I will re-enter what I slaved over. If they are not, I'll try again. Now, if I must redo, I'd love you to at least read what I did (can't remember if you're a "I don't wanna know who wrote what" judge) I am happy with final piece ... don't know what to do!

    ok so this is an example. Maybe I can do this after all. For some reason I got it in my head you wanted alternating consonant vowel WITHIN every single word, and I was thinking WHAT???? hahaha

    The poem stands by itself, with amazing content and a story. When one thinks beyond all that, and applies the rules of your new contest's a wow!!! A difficult task that you made seem natural. Great work, David...and a great idea is your challenge!

    Wow David. This is strong and kinda eerie. I just love it!

  1. Date: 2/4/2013 11:01:00 AM

    You conquered a difficult task with this consonant-vowel task.Ow geee the story gave me chills in my spine..Scary to imagine myself being there..captured and thrown at sea to die.Powerful!

    creatively written poem my friend David... like it..Thanks for sharing and Have a blessed day always :) Hugs, maria

    WOWSER! You delivered! This has such flow that I would never have noticed the vowel/consonant thing... not one choppy/sloppy here. Well, you've got me thinking, but I don't think I can do this even HALF as well as you have. I hope you've created a new form... this is mindblowing! Hugs, Cyndi

    Wow...powerful poem following the consonant, vowels theme of your contest. Empressive !! I'll never top this, but will give it a go.
