A piece of eternity within.
The crystal glistens in a large hand.
With facets that call out to be touched.
Like two hearts that have become one.

i am the power of light and the work of night
my strength borne of millions of years
eons bring me to birth
of rock
my beauty beheld in shadow revealed to you alone
held in your hand
faceted and knowing, nothing random or unsure
one side and then the other you see all of me
then seeing her
the future crystal clear

I am cold metal
and dull rust in places.
I am very old
and wander like the roots of a tree.
But strike me and I will carry your message.
I will carry your message to the one who wishes to hear it most.
I will carry your message
and I will feel
very young
and
very fast.

Crystal
I glimmer in the light,
With Beauty, I delight.
People wrap me with silver,
and glimmer with delight.

Steam Pipes

Conduit of heated vapor
snaking through dark places


Michelle K.     2/11/2010 7:25:07 PM
I am but a shard
A shimmer of truth
Lattice born of earth and fire
Polished, protected
By loves light wings
Warmed by its flame and desire
And now by music
Most heavenly choir
Thundering rhythm of Thor
I am awakened,
A symbol, a light for young lovers
Whose bond shall forever endure.

I am that which tempers night.

I am that which strengthens spirit.

I am that which calms your mood.

I am that which carries hope.

I am that which binds your souls.

I am that which spreads the light.

I am candle flame.

Carole     2/11/2010 2:28:23 PM
I am light
broken from a celestial throne,
a storm of ice and fire ...
borne to earth,
cleaved from it,
more perfect now
in this home.

Marianne "Lioness" Nielsen     2/11/2010 1:15:43 PM
We stay close to the tunnel walls
We spread news through the tunnels and chambers
We call for council meetings
We spread the joyful message of Winterfest
We are HOT!

Marianne "Lioness" Nielsen     2/11/2010 1:10:49 PM
A golden chain holds me
I'm a symbol of eternity
I nestle close to her cleavage
I feel the warmth of her chest
I was given to her as a gift of love.

Julie     2/11/2010 11:14:18 AM
I may bang,
I may clang,
I may break,
I may carry,
I may heat,
I may go on forever,
Best fo all I communicate peace to all those who want to hear.

It is my body which reaches deep into the dark,
Touching the souls of the lonely.
My warm metallic arms which have fashioned,
A community out of the wandering populace.
And my body which pulses long into the night,
The rhythm of this noble nation.

Is it hot in here, or is it him?!

JoAnn     2/11/2010 10:13:24 AM
Crystal
Catherine's rose,
you (and I) share two awestruck lovers.

JoAnn     2/11/2010 10:07:11 AM
Crystal
Multi-faceted,
Gleaming,
Reflecting a love
For the ages.

Laura D.     2/11/2010 9:04:41 AM
I am a creation of of fire and ice.
Intended for one pure of heart.
A symbol of limitless devotion.

Linn     2/11/2010 1:40:17 AM
Crystal
Dancing with rainbow light
reflected in azure eyes
pleased to give her
such a beautiful gift

Ruby (JR)     2/11/2010 12:59:28 AM
I wait in rock,
deep beneath the earth.
I wait for hands to find me,
to dig me out, to cut me into pieces.
I wait for hands to polish me,
and admire me, and look into my center.
I wait for hands to give me to another,
so that my light may hold their love.
