black camel at the gate
mandala, 2008/12/10 6:24 PM
Dear Dr.Mandala

enjoy your life before
a black camel kneels before your door

to be changed to:

whisper into the black camel
not to kneel before your door

or

whisper to the black camel
not to kneel before your door

(I like "into" but that'll also make the first line exceed 7 syllabels, then I must compromise with "to" instead.)
What is your opinion?
Pls help.

d.horse, 2008/12/10 10:29 AM
d.horse-san,

A black camel that kneels before your door sounds exotic but has 9 syllables. Could you trim it up?

So preceding three verses all have got "me" at the end of the first lines. I think this repetition is amusing.
I'm afraid there's no moon on this page, but I would rather pass it to other writers.

Die is a singular in Americanism and dice is both singular and plural in British English with an exception of ‘The die is cast.’ Caesar crossed the Rubicon in January and a few months later a butterfly sit on the thrown die.

Sorry, I mistook Anne-san's note as if he/she was angrily asking:

It's me, anne.
"Who wrote the anonymous note of tuke for #14 ?."

That's why I thought it was mysterious; somebody, unnamed one, might have posted the verses for #14 without the knowledge of Anne-san. Was that possible at all? Please forget it.
Very sorry for my confusing note.

I'm sure I heard
Ponyo singing a song

Also, I would like to tell you that
in my verse #10,
the SC (or S.C.) was ment
(Japanese) Supereme Court,
as D.horse san has already mentioned.

Please leave the word as the SC

It does not matter to me
either Japanese SC or US SC ,though.

Thank you.

mandala on behalf of tina, 2008/10/15 7:57 PM
Let me change:

come rain or come shine
stands one-legged scarecrow

to:

come rain or come shine
single-legged scarecrow.

Because of the redundancy of 'one'.

Whether he is one of the justices of Supreme Court or that of South Carolina,
it sounds funny that 11)to err is human and to (if you don’t’ mind, add ‘to’) forgive may not be his wife’s policy (d.horse).

I wrote my verse on the boad, but strangely enoufh it disappeared.

Net-system is always a mystery for me, so before making somethig false, I repeat it on this mail.

Best wishes,
Anne

sorry for the mistyping.

Dear Dr.Mandala,

I have a second idea. I am a little confused, please fix the second verse whichever you think will fit better....and let us go ahead!

A)
it was an interlude
of the prolonged sandstorms

B)
it was an intermezzo
of the prolonged sandstorms

C)
that'll blow of lull
before another sandstorm
(d.horse)

Dear d.horse,

Hmmm...you say the word is less weighty. What about putting 'intermezzo' instead of 'interlude'?

I agree to your suggestion...the incident was too loud and deadly to call it an interlude, though.
Thank you, d.horse

It was a prelude
to the prolonged sandstorms
(D.Horse)

We watched the operations, beginning from Desert Storm in 1990, then leading to Enduring Peace in 2001 and Iraqi Freedom in 2003……the prolonged sandstorms. So, I’d like to suggest it might be logically more persuasive if ‘a prelude’ is changed to ‘an interlude.’
