I don't know whether to giggle (heh) or stand in awe of the way you've played the computer against the poetry, or vice versa. I like the juxtaposition, and I LOVE the fun I'm having making new poems by even random clicks. This is brilliant, Jill! Just brilliant!

Posted by Kyle Anne Kish on 06/25/06 at 08:21 PM

Ha! You have used your skills to make wonderful wordplay here ... just for all of us. How delightful. As Mara said, "I love the juxtaposition." I will be back to ponder and wander and play often with this. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Ha! Poem that's a toy! Thanks, Jill. Fun, fun, fun!

Just "peeking" at this again to read the comments! It's just sooooooooo fun!

Posted by Chris Sorrenti on 07/06/06 at 03:14 AM

HAHA. Talk about fun with words. Every change in a pull down menu results in a new found poem. ;o)

Posted by Leslie Ann Eisenberg on 07/07/06 at 10:41 PM

dang, this is brilliant. how will it be displayed on the front page when it's POTD, i wonder? PK

Meaning finds meaning in the meaning that you give them, either end. Normally, the matter determines its own form, but here, The form seems more decisive. Nice experiment with the form.

Posted by Rula Shin on 07/22/06 at 04:16 PM

Very intruiging and creative. An illusion that has us feeling the excitement of choice, while creation has already taken its natural form. Wonderfully surprising.

Somehow the ancients survived the whole universe, after all tomorrow you might be an inkblot. This is very ingenious and you get a 10 for creativity while resting on your laurels.

Posted by Leslie Ann Eisenberg on 11/02/06 at 03:01 AM

Posted by Rachelle Howe on 11/14/06 at 04:18 AM

the Ancients
split infinity
a secret
an imaginary enemy

OMG- this the most creative piece I've ever seen! It's alsso fun to play with, like a puzzle one can put together in all different ways. How I missed this, I'll never know. Just great!

Posted by Philip F De Pinto on 04/27/09 at 12:22 PM

your words possess, aJillity, tranQuillity itself, the very essences of what the doctor prescribed, for to fix practically everything, and so I will do as he ordered, and take in copious amounts of Elizabeth's poesie and call him in the morning.

Posted by Lori Johnson on 05/08/09 at 02:05 PM

Just want you to know this is SO cool still a cool word? Anyway, very much worthy of POTD, but can't due to codes, html, etc. Very deserving though, nonetheless.

Posted by Melissa Arel on 01/05/10 at 10:14 PM

i can't believe i just found this. freakin awesome.

Posted by Glenn Currier on 09/08/10 at 08:55 PM

Posted by Philip F De Pinto on 03/28/11 at 11:46 AM

let me be the first to congratulate you on POTD which has the beauty mark of its author writ all o'er it.

Posted by Laurie Blum on 03/28/11 at 12:35 PM

So creative, an excellent choice for POTD! You've made poetry fun! Plus, you have #1 rated poem today too! Congrats to a great writer.

Posted by Ken Harnisch on 03/28/11 at 12:44 PM

I came late to the woodshed, Jill, so please forgive me! But I did like the voyeuristic plunge into sheer genius as poetry!!

Posted by George Hoerner on 03/28/11 at 01:00 PM

Congratulations on a GREAT POTD.

Posted by Kristina Woodhill on 03/28/11 at 03:04 PM

I must have commented on this personally years ago. Great to see this as POTD!

Posted by Maria Massarella on 03/29/11 at 12:20 AM

"somehow someone became the whole universe simply dazzling eternally a secret found peeking in the woodshed" ... and Jill, i love the way this beams brilliance in potd skies ...

Posted by Chris Sorrenti on 03/29/11 at 11:54 PM

Great to see this again, and especially up on the Top 10!

Posted by Angela Stevens on 05/13/13 at 09:17 PM

Creative and delicious words, methinks! *distracted by playing around* Marked this as a favourite and rightly so in my book.
