Your voice, with clear location of June days,
Called me outside the window. You were there,
Light yet composed, as in the just soft stare
Of uncontested summer all things raise
Plainly their seeming into seamless air.
Then your love looked as simple and entire
As that picked pear you tossed me, and your face
As legible as pearskin's fleck and trace,
Which promise always wine, by mottled fire
More fatal fleshed than ever human grace.
And your gay gift—Oh when I saw it fall
Into my hands, through all that naïve light,
It seemed as blessed with truth and new delight
As must have been the first great gift of all.
wednesday100: Lost and Found, for the lost challenge, because I'm schmoopy that way.
Had long work day yesterday intercut with meeting my mother for what was supposed to be lunch and chores, which ended up being just chores as I had several stops that had to be made at the mall (packages to mail, presents to buy). I didn't eat lunch till after I picked my kids up at 3. Wrote three quick articles, reviewed Enterprise half-asleep...Extinction, at Trek Nation, and I must not have done a half-bad job of it because I have already gotten hate mail about the review, unlike last week when I received no hate mail at all.
And I woke up this morning and realized: I have got to do something about my Friends list. I don't stand a chance of catching up, and that's after less than 24 hours. Okay, so I did spend a bit of time yesterday writing porn and editing fic. That's necessary for my sanity. So are the fic communities I frequent. But even having sworn off RPS, I don't have time to read or comment on things, let alone keep up with everyone's lives.
Am not wasting my time on that "about my LJ" meme everyone is doing, but for some sick reason I wasted my time on this, which is quite true:
Casual: Yeah, you think he's good looking, you
appreciate his skill at killing things but
other than that you don't get that excited.
Perhaps you're a fan of the canon Legolas and
were pleased with his movie incarnation but
you're very laid back about it.
What type of Legolas fangirl are you?

Finally, a rec stolen from eponis, a series of fake (slashy) Harry Potter advertisements by femmequixotic based on those new HP ads for adults, here.
