Airs

Airs

She wore them like a cloak in winter,
Her nose upturned to the frosty air –
With heavy sigh, her crystallizing breath
Would frost the spellbound room in diamonds.

And he pontificated, warming
To his tale; this ode to his heroics
Fabricated, wholly, on the spot
While she feigned rapture, hearing not at all

When warmer voices burst into the hall
Warm winds to blow upon that very spot –
The news they brought was catastrophic.
Outside, the world was new – transforming.

Change, for some, is hard as diamonds,
And as she breathed her dying breath
She knew that soon, the frosted airs
Would wear her, like a cloak in winter.

    1. You’d love it less if you had to wade through spam to have a real conversation on my blog, so don’t complain too loudly and hurt my Bouncer’s feelings. He’s only operating under orders from Madame Cerise, who apparently has already made exception for your lack of a Gravatar.

  1. Sadly, I have no idea what a gravatar is, or how or where, to get one. I do admit to having MUCH Gravitas. (If you desire to provide a gravatar, merely use my standard pic from F/B.)

    RE: You’d love it less if you had to wade through spam to have a real conversation on my blog, so don’t complain too loudly and hurt my Bouncer’s feelings.

    I merely had to type something to get in enough words. I did not think you’d want too much of my nutty verbiage, or links to some 50 infamous Music Videos… So I used the KISS principle.

    Madame has too many Minions! How IS the “Cherry Mobile” doing? We have heard nothing since the replacement of your last faithful steed~!

    And…. how come there have been no more Madame Cerise Stories? The FEW were good, funny, and uplifting.

    “This Summer! The Return of Cerise! Take that Dark Side! She will Skywalker you! Even Bond fears this Equal! In August! Cherries will fill Martinis, and the odd Martoonie**. There may even be a lone Martinus! Da dum dum dum! Cherry Part Deux! The Sequelle! Will hit blogs everywhere!”

    Inform your Bouncer some of your fans are QUITE insane.

    (** For explan: See Wayne and Shuster. Consider yourself INSPIRED!)

    I hope he does not complain over my verbiage!

    1. I swear, Pete, you used to have a Gravatar. That, or my memory is playing tricks on me. Go to Gravatar.com and learn all about it. It’s free, very easy, and will do much to distinguish you from a spambot, since spambots will never take the time to get one. I can’t provide one for you, unfortunately, but YOU can use your standard FB profile pic, and you can associate it with any/all of your email accounts. You can just set it and forget it, once you register.

      I can whitelist around some of the wards I’ve set to keep the spammers out. (Whitelisting apparently does not work if you try to add words to your name, or too many links to your comment – but it may let me overlook your lack of Gravatar. Still, I’d like to see your face when you comment, so do check it out!) Yes, number of words, number of key-ups, and certain other rules that will not be spelled out here – all enforced by my Bouncer to ensure that we don’t get too many weird little MadLibs-style comments or off-topic bits about pricey boots and bags. (That even I can’t name, here, without getting myself bounced!)

      The Cherry Mobile is doing wonderfully! She looks out for me. She does need a bath. She deserves a pricey detailing.

      Pete, you silly man – how come there have been no more Madame Cerise stories? YOU WROTE THEM ALL. Ask that one of yourself!

      My Bouncer knows you’re insane. Don’t worry, he’s had six months’ diversity training. But you have to be nice to the tattooed bartender, too.

  2. GRAVATAR: I ha never heard of it before, so…..

    Yes, these people who think they can sell stuff, online. Get thee to a real store! Honestly, Don’t they know the it is MY Uncle Zephyr who stole the Boogaa Booga Treasury. All $5.00

    As for car baths: That’s what husbands are for.

    I wrote the Cherry Stories? I wrote them? That whack on the head must been harder than we thought. I thot I only commented.

    Well hang in there….
