Capture the Moment Challenge [Jul. 21st, 2006|09:58 am]
At the request of Her Majesty futma, Eternal Sovereign of Futmaville, I now proclaim the Capture the Moment challenge.

Dates: July 21, 2006 - August 4, 2006
Entry type: Any (metered, free verse, haiku, limerick, lyric, prose, whatever)
Multiple Entries: Allowed
Subject matter: The goal of the challenge is to capture and convey the sense of a single moment. It can be something that happened to you today, a memory, or something from your imagination. But the point is to allow the reader to experience that moment with you, to get the sense of what that particular moment was really like.

So use your powers of description! Join in!

This is a poem by Emily Dickinson which was talked about in my latest American Poetry class.

I thought it perfect 3_muses material, so here is first of all the poem and then my thoughts on it.

I think I may have posted this somewhere else before (namely Systerhood), and I think I've said I would post it here, but never did.   Well, it  came up again for me recently and so I thought I would post it here.

These are the lyrics for the song Tiger, by Paula Cole.  While she's not one of my favorite songwriters, I really relate to this song and identify with it.

In case you wanted to listen to it, here it is.

I have an obsession with Anne Sexton at the moment. Her poems, like Margaret Atwood's, have this ability to reach right through my skin...I like poems that make the ground shift under me :) Anyway, I thought you might like it as well...

Some background information that frames her poem:

"Young girls in old Arabia were often buried alive next
to their fathers, apparently as sacrifice to the goddesses
of the tribes..."

Thanks to three 12-year-old wannabe rapper (full story in my journal as soon as I'm alive again) I was reminded of a poem I learned in school as a kid.
I thought I'd share before I vanish into oblivion once more...fear of it falling through my swiss cheese memory, you know.

Name of Piece: Der Erlkönig, The Erlking
Author: Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Year Written: 1782

Anyway, this just came out today, and I'm not really sure why. I'm not in that of a sad, melancholy mood or anything, so I don't know how this happened. But here it is, unbeta'd and untitled.

Title:  Untitled

Date:  December 6, 2005

All rights reserved, or something like that.
