I will have a portal pass.

I must now go think.

[POOF]



Buffy and Angel
Posted by: glow - Apr 11, 2002, 7:59 PM 4 of 43

Angel was no human man
Though he played the part

Until Buffy kissed
His lips and his fangs came out
Angel hissed she screamed

(That's all I have for now)

it seems glow's head is glowing

with insightful sparks.



The Oracle says . . . [Blank Verse]
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 11, 2002, 7:57 PM 6 of 43

I know that there's a chip in Spike's sweet head.

I smell a whiff of techno-flavored verse.

Who is this Mister Verschip who appeared?

Is he a who or something else instead?



This is a new clue
Posted by: glow - Apr 11, 2002, 7:55 PM 7 of 43

We must transcend the haiku's
limits, form and verse.

(2) Our host(s) want(s) verses
in Shakespearean sonnets,
or couplets times 2.

(3) Leaving haikus for
sonnets form will take us through
past the portal wall

(4) Maybe I am wrong.
It has happened before now.
What path am I on?



The Oracle says . . .
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 11, 2002, 7:53 PM 8 of 43

I see no comments posted

about ep "Angel."



Mr. Verschip says . . . [couplet]
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - Apr 11, 2002, 7:51 PM 9 of 43

I see there is no portal, just high wind. <smile>

Why should I deal with this? Is it I've sinned?



The Oracle says . . .
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 11, 2002, 7:48 PM 10 of 43

There's a new sonnet lesson

on TODAY's CORKBOARD.



I haven't retired, I'm just on a mini-vacation
Posted by: prunehilda - Apr 11, 2002, 7:46 PM 11 of 43

Sonnets take time
To get the right rhyme



The Oracle says . . . (Blank Verse)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 11, 2002, 7:46 PM 12 of 43

No trickery at all is here implied.
What drama without conflict can there be.

[couplet]
A "BIG BAD" was suggested (in a way).
Our TEA TIME shifts as thoughts appear each day.



Ha Ha
Posted by: prunehilda - Apr 11, 2002, 7:43 PM 13 of 43

FP did you think
You could fool us? We know your
style by now. Good try.



Mister Verschip says . . . [couplet]
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - Apr 11, 2002, 7:42 PM 14 of 43

I came here for the Portal, not bad verse.

If you must waste my time, then I must curse!



The Oracle says . . . [couplet]
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 11, 2002, 7:39 PM 15 of 43

The grapevine says that prunehilda aspired

to write one sonnet. Then the girl retired.
<g>



Glow gives a big groan.
Posted by: glow - Apr 11, 2002, 7:39 PM 16 of 43

FP is either mad or...
too clever. You choose!



The Oracle says . . .
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 11, 2002, 7:38 PM 17 of 43

A new addition takes time

to work the kinks out. <smile>



My head is spinning.
Posted by: glow - Apr 11, 2002, 7:36 PM 18 of 43

Is prunehilda's assumption right?
A new persona?



The Oracle says . . . [in a nicer couplet]
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 11, 2002, 7:36 PM 19 of 43

It's sad that holywater left so soon.

I'd like to thank her for a "Big Bad" goon. <g>



Mister Verschip says . . . [in a bloody couplet]
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - Apr 11, 2002, 7:33 PM 20 of 43

Excuse me friend, my manners have some rust.

But not as bad as those who turn to dust.



The Oracle says . . . [quatrain]
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 11, 2002, 7:30 PM 21 of 43

I hear a Mister Verschip speak in verse.

But he is not a human. I can tell.

Could he be vampire? Maybe something worse.

Perhaps a thing that's come right out of hell.



um
Posted by: prunehilda - Apr 11, 2002, 7:30 PM 22 of 43

FP, is that you
Hiding under that fake nose
and glasses,too. Eh?



An unruly verser!
Posted by: holywater - Apr 11, 2002, 7:30 PM 23 of 43

And I thought I was bad,
Sleep calls me now, though it makes me sad...
Will check back when sun shines in fair blighty
Play nice now..

Yelnif has to go
I apologize prefusely
Take care everyone



Dear Mr. Verschip
Posted by: glow - Apr 11, 2002, 7:28 PM 25 of 43

Civility will further
Your stay and access

An inspiration?



Mr. Verschip says [in blank verse]
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - Apr 11, 2002, 7:25 PM 27 of 43

I said I want a bloody tickent, man.

Just cut the crap and sell a portal pass!



Haiku
Posted by: prunehilda - Apr 11, 2002, 7:24 PM 28 of 43

prunehilda says Hi
But I need inspiration
to put words around.



Oh I've discovered the problem
Posted by: glow - Apr 11, 2002, 7:24 PM 29 of 43

Sorry to interrupt the versifying environment, the tid=65921 is incorrect, it should be tid=65912


The Oracle says . . .
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 11, 2002, 7:23 PM 30 of 43

I hear a nonhuman voice.

Vampire . . .or techno.



<technical upgrade>
Posted by: holywater - Apr 11, 2002, 7:23 PM 31 of 43

Just to indulge
In rhyming shinnanigans
With a phantom bloke...
