The Witnesses

When they die
you call them gods
made and placed in shrines.

Hoping to convince the uninterrupted generations,
defiance was the response;
The terrible choice between denying
and the claim that these could catch fire
Among the disaffected and the restless
who had inspired with the idea
who had dared a stubborn dissident
who had refused to obey
And took for granted the sacrifice and submission.

Two Wishes


I had a bunch of crafty stuff, including some plastic pony beads, charms, and assorted jewelry making supplies, that I brought back from the Owen County clean-up project. I didn’t really want the supplies so much as the nice storage boxes they were in. Today, there was a Freecycle request for plastic beads, so I was able to pass on everything I didn’t want.

In sorting through the boxes, I came across a cheap, plastic magnifying glass. Hmmm, I thought. I took a few photos with it, but it’s dark out, so there’s really not enough available light. Tomorrow, I intend to play around some more with it.
