Because I was registering for this site

and also painting the shoreline

as a lady's dress

I forgot that just in the other room--oops!

oh, now the biscuits are burnt.

 

I felt like sharing this because it so neatly sums up my life. Luckily, they aren't *too* burnt--still tasty and edible.

 

Also, I'd like to say that I'm really excited to find this site! I had the thought as I was reading some old poems that I wanted to read some other people's poetry and get inspired, maybe even share my own voice. But some of the other forums I looked at were very intense, all about criticism and literary perfection. I'm delighted to have found a more laid back group of people, and it seems to me that creativity and positive comments are cherished here.

Yes, I'm getting something out of this all-encompassing trip.

Salutations Suoaie. Welcome aboard. You are right on several counts. This forum is laid back & there are many gifted writers here. The intensity & literary perfection you speak about in other venues stems from those individuals that take themselves too seriously. Criticism is only a useful tool when properly used by the right minds. Many writers criticize from their own inept character & lack of brevity to pursue that which they critique.  And literary perfection. Is there such a thing in our times? Would there be another Poe? Another Frost? I doubt it with the written word having transcended the times such as it has. Write to please your heart & we will all enjoy.................

Ok, I'll ask it. Painting the shoreline as a woman's dress? Certain OCD writers on here might have a problem with that statement without an expaination.

Welcome to Thoughts.

If that statement had unintended innuendos, I am embarrassed to say I don't see them. But, to answer your question, I was quite literally painting a picture (on canvas, with paints), and the picture was of the shoreline-- seen from far above, with the sea against the sand, followed by cliffs and a wide forest. But the edge between sea and sand was the  bottom hem  of a dress, and the sand, cliff and forest were horizontal colors of her dress. I'm actually proud of this painting, I've never done anything quite like it before.

Also, the biscuits really did burn--and of course I was foolish enough to bake all the dough at the same time, in an unfamiliar oven (didn't realize it ran hot). Thankfully, the flavor is wonderful and it's all ok -- a couple more minutes and the whole thing would have been compost (or bird food!)

Thank you all for the welcome; as I said I'm excited about this forum. I've already read some beautiful work here, and I love the contests page with so many creative challenges to get words flowing!

I thought the opening poem was beautiful and quite humerous. Welcome Supaei.
