The Black Cat Brigade
United States
Current Residence: born NV, now CO
Personal Quote: It IS one word, and I haven't finished it yet.
Had some pieces published by Brass Bell

Candi Cooper-Towler

working late crescent moon balancing Mars on her head

windswept beach  voices escape  the smell of seaweed

old photos that horse is gone but I still have the saddle

silver rain a moment's sun on this stormy day


O brightest! Our brave quarterback-
We hope that you will never take a sack
While you cry Omaha and throw.
Your records they will surely grow.

I know some say you should be long-retired.
But we, your hopeful Broncos fans,
For another Super Bowl make plans,
And watch, and cheer, by our own eyes inspired.
Ode to Peyton Manning
TOTAL ripoff of Ode to Psyche by Keats, lines 36–43. Especially for the family football pool.

The Original lines:

O brightest! though too late for antique vows, 
Too, too late for the fond believing lyre, 
When holy were the haunted forest boughs, 
Holy the air, the water, and the fire; 
Yet even in these days so far retired 
From happy pieties, thy lucent fans,
Fluttering among the faint Olympians, 
I see, and sing, by my own eyes inspired. 
Sock Monster- Gio by RedDragonfly
Sock Monster- Gio
Gio is a cheerful monster who loves sporting events and dressy occasions.

For G in DC!
SEED 1 deinktvis:
other realms beckon;
echos through an open door.
should i stay or go?

my answer:
irritating dream
try to fall asleep again
or get up early?

SEED 2 silvernium:
when there is no moon:
I am beside myself as -
my center has gone

my answer:
a fish under
the reflections
of clouds

SEED 3 winterofthesoul:
Sharp silver bristles...
An owl, on her down-swoop,
Glares at the the close pines...

my answer:
blue jay on blue spruce
on this rainy day

SEED 4 saiun:
wild roses
bowed by cold rain
still fragrant

my answer:
cold rain
sweet grass
horses are bending the fence

SEED 5 :

and my seed:

in the window
reflection of a cat
startles the cat
BMB collabapalooza 3.0
Collab for :iconbluemoonbird: poetry collaboration- 5 seeds and answers.
Stanzas may vary...

Candi Cooper-Towler

working late crescent moon balancing Mars on her head

windswept beach  voices escape  the smell of seaweed

old photos that horse is gone but I still have the saddle

silver rain a moment's sun on this stormy day
gentle cascade
an impromptu shower
horsey approval
8-2-14 SM2

dried-mud mane
all the clumps clinking
earth rattles
8-4-14 RD

evening slips to stars
barn light...moths and flicker
one more ride so tempting
8-5-14  SM2

freight train passes
the night is quiet
now that horses have dinner
8-14-14 RD

evening together
outside, quiet conversations
...meteor shower
8-15-14  SM2

evening stable-
tonight when I leave
it is already dark
8-16-14 RD

a canvas of stars
a moments pause...then finding
Pegasus....right there
8-17-14  SM2

after the ride
Big Dipper rising
as the horses drink
8-18-14 RD

meteor shower
slipping over head...wishes lovely
8-18-14 SM2

another falling star
that only I see-
Honey, you need new glasses.
8-19-14 RD

close enough maybe....
your brilliance is obvious
no need for wishes
8-19-14 SM2

reflecting sun
like the spotlight
that you deserve
8-20-14 RD

translucent crystal
interpersonal alchemy
single light...many colors
8-20-14  SM2

the sparkle on her finger
not the only light
of love between them

-for Matt&Julia
8-21-14  RD

separate sparks...yes
when combined such a light
...stars are envious
8-21-14 SM2

an open gate
all the horses
want to be on the other side
8-24-14 RD

many minds and hooves
heed their hearts desires
...but oats bring them back
8-26-14 SM2

cloudy morning
startling red
of the neighbor's roses
8-28-14 RD

lattice of diamonds
stretched between intricate blooms
guarded by spider
8-29-14 SM2

covered in spiderweb
ambitious attempt
8-30-14 RD

tiny nook...secrets
hidden but many eyes see
...dinner guests are here
8-31-14 SM2
