White Picket Fence

Featuring: SCRAP METAL
Fresh sand garments 
The Mental Colosseum floor
Self infliction's--waging wars 


A mask, tiny holes
Breathing heavily
Dancing around my toes
Broad carbon steel
Safe behind my will
Equipment of revenge
Fencing the world with my eyes

I bow, with the morning dew,
 My mind a dual in its own world.
When the curtains lift,
I prepare myself with a weapon--   
Epee Crest to protect my chest
A sword sharper than  fangs
I circle my blade around the door knob 
Ready to face the world 
Practicing --in hopes today I won't retreat

“Fencers ready!"
A magical knightress
Painted in white
"Let's dance!"


Queen Amri  "VS" The Damsel 
Wishing it was over
Stainless steel echoes
“Every poke counts”
 Hoping & Taking
No room to disengage   ---I retreat
Peacefully I secure my stance 
On Guard!
I lean in, I disengage  ---I flee
Back again, I lunge 
The Queen is to smart to retreat
I -Amri, parry away from the argument of the lunge.
Recoil & Double tapped
In and out….. I'm struck
Back to the drawing board
On guard, I stand like a statue
Out of breath; feels like i’m dying
Yet I am still fighting.
The Queen knows what to do.   
I Yield, She Wins!

Raising our foils 
---At the on guard of another day

I move in swiftly, cutting like razor blades
Using refreshed energy
24 / 7 
I attack, She provokes!
Sand runs its course
Victorious against the queen
Touch – tied – triumph -- Touché
Standing on my own 2 feet

I am the 
-Grand Finale Show-
Conquering The Battles Inside
-I WIN!-

    I throw rose buds at your unflinching feet my Sphinx. A most amazing collaboration with the intensity and pace of survival in proud strife. Who needs psychiatry when this psychological Art is avaliable!!!! Battle on babe, battle on! Another FAV. J.A.B.

    You are the metaphor queen. Loved it, I've even looked up Epee Crest. So nice, so effortless, so smooth, another of your greats.

    Well done, Queen Amri (Irma, I presume?). Fencing is such a graceful sport and you need good strategy to outwit your adversary. I enjoyed reading this gem, Linda. Licia :-)

    Needless to say, I was relieved that you continued to correspond with this foolish old man. Deciding how to live is not ever a simple matter. You have a lot of passion and skill. Be well. Oh, you also have nothing to fear for you have many who are fond of you! Be strong!

    Linda, the idea of a mental colosseum floor as the stage for this battle is a remarkable piece of ingenuity. You are really just so creative. There definitely is a conflict going on inside. Lately, I have been thinking that if even a soft voice starts telling me that something I am about to do is wrong, then I probably should not move forward. I made a comment to you a couple of weeks ago that was meant to be a pun, but I also was afraid you might have taken it otherwise.

    Linda this avatar good in many aspects also it doesn't give the nearer feel. Many eccentrics have happy life. life, a great battlefield fight till the last moment with fun.Great Linda.(:v Jenish
