Poem: (untitled)

There we stand
On the threshold
Eye to eye
Death stands between us
And I reach for you
Not knowing
Is it night or day?
Is it black or white?
Only you matter now
I reach for you
The night is ending
Or, is it beginning?
My mind knows no logic now
I reach for you
Between the soft, quivering pillars of might
The red and the white
And you, becoming
The air is full of you
A soft, swaying motion
Electricity and light
I dance the sacred dance
In search of you
The pushing and the pulling
The new day's sun in sight
I reach for you
The air is filling you
The room is filled with light
A beginning and an ending
When two were one
A single cord connecting
Two heavenly bodies of light
The dancer and the dance
The song and the sight
The light, now dividing
When one was two
A single love connecting
Two earthly bodies of might

I have decided to post some of my poetry on this blog. Some of the poems have been previously published in various places. I have always wanted to be able to share my poetry with as many people as possible, so this is a great way to do that. I hope you enjoy it.

Watchmen et al

I haven't had much to say lately. I have not been feeling well and haven't had the time to write anything interesting.

Bob and I went to see Watchmen, twice. First we saw it at midnight Thursday night. It was over at 5 minutes to 3 in the morning. Then we had to get up with the kids at 6:30 am. Two of the kids ended up staying home sick (which seems to happen every time we take off from work). We met up with two friends to see Watchmen at 10 am. I saw new things the second time we saw it. I don't think I am going to see a movie at midnight again, because it is a pain to get up early afterward.

Watchmen movie is awesome! But it is long. I don't know how well it will do at the box office long term, because mostly comic book fans and adventure fans are going to watch it.

There are only a few slight differences from the book, but nothing too major (for example: Laurie does not smoke in the movie). I am supposed to take my sons this weekend, but I don't know if I will take the thirteen-year-old. It is extremely violent, which is more shocking in the video format than in the comic. I can't wait to watch the Black Freighter. I missed having it in the movie.
