BRONZE LINKS to TODAY'S Buffy Verse SONNETS #21-24: ref: BtVS #2 "The Harvest"
PART 1
http://www.buffy.com/bronze_posts.jsp?tid=53901
PART 2:
http://www.buffy.com/bronze_posts.jsp?tid=53900


TODAY'S META QUESTION: IS IT A DUMB IDEA . . .

   for the topic of each daily TEA TIME thread to be
   an episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer?


  SUN 3/31 #1 "Welcome To the Hellmouth"
  MON 4/1  #2 "The Harvest"
  TUE 4/2  #3 "The Witch"
  <WED 4/3  #4 "Teacher's Pet"
  THU 4/4  #5 "Never Kill A Boy On The First Date"
  FRI 4/5  #6 "The Pack"
  SAT 4/6  #7 "Angel"


OUR CHALLENGE (while sharpening our slayer tongues) is
to use the discipline of rhetorical verse to squeeze all "the juice"
there is to be squeezed from the artistic and cultural power source
that is Buffy the Vampire Slayer. . . . OR IS IT? <g>

TEA TIME hour is . . .
  4-5 PM in Los Angeles
  7-8 PM in New York City and in the Bronze
  11-12 AM in London (Midnight-1:00 AM after 4/7)
  10-11 AM in Sydney (9-10AM after 4/7 due to U.S. Daylight Savings Time)

I'll be here until 8:PM Bronze time . . .


you speak

CORRECTION:

How much can you enjoy the past episodes?


Sorry to jump off the stage so fast

and leave dear Marcie who came in . . . at last. <smile>

IAMBIC PENTAMETER COUPLET

POOF . . . until tomorrow.



Hey Marcie, here's a question AS WE CLOSE <smile>
Posted by: forensicpopouri - Apr 01, 2002, 8:02 PM 2 of 18

How much can you enjoy the past episodes?

I have them all on tape. Seen ev'ry one.

But seem to only want to view the new.

And I mean . . . what comes next.

Whenever they cough up another show. <smile>



Hi Marcie who's late. <g>
Posted by: forensicpopouri - Apr 01, 2002, 7:58 PM 3 of 18

I enjoy your rhyming mind.

Must now add meter.
<smile>

HAIKU

"We KNOW TOO MUCH. And more knowing eyes.

PROBLEM: Word left out CORRECTING:

WE KNOW TOO MUCH. And have more knowing eyes.



I'm late!

I've read your sonnet's quest for Katy grace,
'Twould have been most interesting to see
Miss Holmes in our tiny Sarah's big place
'Twas not to pass, making Sarah: Buffy

Like a slayer, an actress has a path
I doubt that Sarah longs for normal life
Called the chosen one, no need for high math
All her fortune is paid with d'frent strife


I'll agree the first season's kinda rough
But now at six the diamond is smoother
For that thank Joss, Fury, Martis and Buff!
Forget not other scribes, the rhyme was tough

A poet lamented the road not taken
ANother road, would have been mistaken!



I said this in the haiku down below
Posted by: forensicpopouri - Apr 01, 2002, 7:52 PM 6 of 18


but it's encoded way too much, some say.

So I'll translate to blank verse to expand

the great big problem we have looking back

to early B. t. V. S. episodes.

WE KNOW TOO MUCH. And more knowing eyes.

How can we put our minds back were we were

to talk about things when the show was young.

BLANK VERSE



If you wade through the sonnets for today
Posted by: forensicpopouri - Apr 01, 2002, 7:47 PM 7 of 18

-- all four of them -- you'd think that Katie Holmes

somehow became the topic of the day.


And in a sense, that is completely right.


But there's a larger question I address.

BLANK VERSE



I'll look at the FAQ I guess

This is a weird thing for this board.

Bye for now.

"I said in sonnets what I wanted to say."

CORRECTION
I said in sonnets what I want to say.

Sloppy slayer tongue. <g>



Despite the fact that Tea Time's half-way through
Posted by: goodtvguy - Apr 01, 2002, 7:38 PM 10 of 18

we haven't raised the topic of the day.

I said in sonnets what I wanted to

. . which basic'lly is there's not much to say.

IAMBIC PENTAMETER QUATRAIN

It's hard to look back
with fresh enough eyes --
forget season six.

HAIKU



Hmmm?
Posted by: goodtvguy - Apr 01, 2002, 7:32 PM 11 of 18

Odd, but interesting.


Don't be surprised that this thread seems quite strange.
Posted by: forensicpopouri - Apr 01, 2002, 7:22 PM 12 of 18

This daily thread has not long been around.

And it's evolving ev'ry day it posts.

And there's a reason why few folks are here.

And maybe reasons that you don't expect. <smile>

BLANK VERSE



I guess I must expand to make things clear
Posted by: forensicpopouri - Apr 01, 2002, 7:18 PM 13 of 18

and that will take more syllables. (Like this.) <g>

Hi there, lil_dawn

Which is the confusing part? <smile>

Or confusing parts? <g>

HAIKU



I'm being lazy
Posted by: forensicpopouri - Apr 01, 2002, 7:09 PM 15 of 18

and too pooped out from sonnets.

So I'll just haiku.

HAIKU



i'm a little confused
Posted by: lil_dawn - Apr 01, 2002, 7:08 PM 16 of 18

your intro was v. elloquent but not exactly clear. plz expand


[HAIKU SUMMATION of today's sonnet fiasco <g>]

A useful mistake.
  An easy choice of topic.
    Each day, one Buffy.

But to lay fresh eyes
  on each Buffy tale again
     is impossible.

We therefore return
  to the arbitrary choice
    of each day's "chaos" . . .

. . . or "complexity" --
  depending on your spirit.
    Or the mood you're in.

Bottom bottom line:
 It's not time to have a plan.
   We'll steer day by day.
