There is power here not so designed. .
I don't know what to make of this as yet.

POOF



But Oracle, you... (HS)
Posted by: VretilRaduriel - May 09, 2002, 8:00 PM 3 of 42

Do have a name -- Oracle
And it signifies.

Names hold meanings, sparks,
of our souls and who we are.
We move by our names



Our angel , our muse (HS to all)
Posted by: prunehilda - May 09, 2002, 8:00 PM 4 of 42

speaks the truth and reveals
beauty and goodness.



Humanity has, (HS)
Posted by: VretilRaduriel - May 09, 2002, 7:58 PM 5 of 42

No corner on soul markets,
divinity sparks.

Verschip's not human
So what? Damaged Archangel
Perhaps. Or other...



The Oracle says . . .(HS)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - May 09, 2002, 7:58 PM 6 of 42

Why should a name matter much?

I don't have a name.



HR to prunehilda
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - May 09, 2002, 7:57 PM 7 of 42

Don't worry prunehilda.
We'll see what O decides or
whoever pulls strings. <smile>



All right dammit...
Posted by: VretilRaduriel - May 09, 2002, 7:55 PM 8 of 42

To Democracy:
Beauty is Truth, truth beauty.
That's all you need know.

And Souls are not things
Given and taken by whim
They exist despite.



Mister Verschip says . . . (BV to the ladies regarding their verse . . . but very distraught)
Posted by: - May 09, 2002, 7:55 PM 9 of 42

Dear ladies, I don't know what verse will win.

I do not know a thing as of right now.


(RC)
I can say that I know my own heart well.
And I think that this Oracle's from hell.



The Oracle says . . . (HS)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - May 09, 2002, 7:51 PM 10 of 42

It fears the loss of its name.

Sounds human. Almost.



My bad SL but (HS)
Posted by: prunehilda - May 09, 2002, 7:50 PM 11 of 42

for a minute I thought that
all would be lost so

I didn't see that post
Oh well, now there will be two.
What can we do? Oops.



HR to O
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - May 09, 2002, 7:49 PM 12 of 42

I saw Spiderman.
It does talk of "curse" and "gift."
Powerful end-scene.



Mister Verschip says . . . (BV to ALL and yanking out his EARPIECE)
Posted by: - May 09, 2002, 7:49 PM 13 of 42

I HAVE a soul. I have a name. And this
is evil to strip me of either one.

I'm sorry, dearest ladies, but I must
denounce the Oracle as playing games
with my identity, I HAVE NO WEB!



HR to prunehilda (oops!)
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - May 09, 2002, 7:47 PM 14 of 42

Saw you posted yours.
That's fine. The more the better.
It's all for the cause!



...
Posted by: yelnif - May 09, 2002, 7:46 PM 15 of 42

SL (Late response!)
These days I'm always confused.
Got hooked sniffing sand.



HR to O (about movie challenge of the week... or how low can we go for tea leaves <g>)
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - May 09, 2002, 7:45 PM 16 of 42

In this “bloody” flick
Schwarzenegger plays Gordy,
A lone fireman.

When his fam’ly’s killed
He goes mad, vows revenge and
Heads to Columbia.

Much happens there.
Terrorists and CIA.
Explosions, tortures.

Moral dilemmas
Are also part of the plot:
“Big Bad” has a wife.

Formulaic? Dull?
Entertaining? I don’’t know.
I did not see it.

For the Nine Tea Leaves
That is the best we can say
About Schwartzy’s film.



The Oracle says . . . (HS)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - May 09, 2002, 7:45 PM 17 of 42

Without a soul, there's no name.
A spider perhaps?



HR to all - Sorry SL but we can't waste those leaves.
Posted by: prunehilda - May 09, 2002, 7:44 PM 18 of 42

From a dream FP
remembers wiggly tongs
and then the snake. He

Then sees a movie
that is a nightmare come true.
How scary is that?

Now I never have
nightmares anymore but I
do dream. That's for sure.

A dream can be like
a party in your head. You
laugh and giggle while

you still sleep. Once I
dreamed a dream that was so
wonderful I did

try to capture it
but as I awoke it went
POOF and vanished.

I think dreams can be
prophetic but you have to
remember them too.



HR to V
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - May 09, 2002, 7:43 PM 19 of 42

Sweet V, even void
You're still much to my liking.
If you care at all. <g>



HR to prunehilda
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - May 09, 2002, 7:41 PM 20 of 42

Thank you then prunehilda
I will give it a go but
Only for the cause.



Mister Verschip says . . . (BV . . . in total amazement at how his posts are appearing)
Posted by: - May 09, 2002, 7:40 PM 21 of 42

It seems I'm logged in as the sodding void?

Can anybody see my name at all?

Not up there in the subject line dear friends,
but down below.What's happened to my name?



HR to V (while slightly flirting)
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - May 09, 2002, 7:39 PM 22 of 42

How can there be vote:
I'm the only candidate
We are not in France! <g>



No, No NO SL (HS)
Posted by: prunehilda - May 09, 2002, 7:37 PM 23 of 42

Grab those leaves while you
can. Go! I insist.



Hello all , SL (HS)
Posted by: prunehilda - May 09, 2002, 7:35 PM 24 of 42

I'm not prepared for today
Kids and supper

Need attention too.
Those last minute things can get
so complicated



Mister Verschip says . . . (BV to SL regarding Tea Leaf challenges issued earlier in the week)
Posted by: - May 09, 2002, 7:35 PM 25 of 42

Yes, all the Tea Leaves mentioned are "in play."

(he listens to his earpiece silently)

(RC)
You found the right spot in the "WHY POST" verse . . .
but voting rules I've heard we must rehearse.



HR to prunehilda (about the "agreement". Side note: where is glow?)
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - May 09, 2002, 7:35 PM 26 of 42

Hello there prunehilda.
Shouldn't we just give this one up?
Don't know what to do.



HR to O (hoping I did not "screw up" my IP...)
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - May 09, 2002, 7:31 PM 27 of 42

Is yesterday’s quiz
(‘bout an old verse to be fixed)
Still applicable?

If not, I don’t care <g>
Just for the heck of it and
Some IP practice

Here is my response.
A simple suggestion to
Change that “part II” line.

(IP)
“Ironic'ly the freedom that you lose
is amplified, returned. So it's not fools . . .

. . . who out of sonnets make some clever sense
(So make slams of folks' "poetry" past tense.)"



Mister Verschip says . . . (BV to ALL)
Posted by: - May 09, 2002, 7:30 PM 28 of 42

At least the Oracle is making noise.
I don't know yet if he is making sense.



The Oracle says . . . (HS)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - May 09, 2002, 7:29 PM 29 of 42

Beauty & Democracy.

Is there a wedding?



Mister Verschp says . . . (RC to ALL while listening to his EARPIECE which no one can see)
Posted by: - May 09, 2002, 7:27 PM 30 of 42

I think we should say Buffy now and then.
The Bronze is a fat egg from that gold hen. <smile>



SL if you are (HS )
Posted by: prunehilda - May 09, 2002, 7:27 PM 31 of 42

here post your haiku and get
it over with. Si!



HR to O (Confused. Again.)
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - May 09, 2002, 7:26 PM 32 of 42

If I get it right
Democracy should not rule
The C's decisions?

Only beauty, then?
What do you know 'bout beauty?
It's so subjective.



HR to yelnif
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - May 09, 2002, 7:23 PM 33 of 42

Hello dear yelnif
How are you on this nice day.
Hope not confused yet <smile>



Mister Verschip says . . . (RC to himself and ALL)
Posted by: - May 09, 2002, 7:22 PM 34 of 42

Well what is this? The Oracle quotes me
from yesterday . . . about my prophecy.



The Oracle says . . . (HS)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - May 09, 2002, 7:20 PM 35 of 42

Democracy is ugly.
Beauty is pretty.



Mister Verschip says . . . (RC to SL regarding appropriate language as he listens to his EARPIECE)
Posted by: - May 09, 2002, 7:16 PM 36 of 42

I've heard the rule is Finnish for your kind. <smile>

But French translated if you wouldn't mind.



HR to V (trying to make it up for last time's failed date)
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - May 09, 2002, 7:14 PM 37 of 42

"Bonjour," my dear V.
I use French to try to..., well,
You know what I mean.

Like Italian had
Such a strange effect on this
Woman called "Wanda." <g>



Mister Verschip says . . .(BV to yelnif as she enters)
Posted by: - May 09, 2002, 7:13 PM 38 of 42

Ah yelnif . . . you may be the only one
who shows her face at Tea Time . . . due to THIS:

Confusion on the CORKBOARD 'bout today.



Mister Verschip says . . . (BV to himself . . .)
Posted by: - May 09, 2002, 7:12 PM 39 of 42

Ah . . . I smell "the void" has passed this way.

But stranger smelling "Tea." What is this blend?



....
Posted by: yelnif - May 09, 2002, 7:10 PM 40 of 42

Greetings ev'ryone.
How are we all? (Desp'rately
tries to fill poem)

Oh, one more thing... I
may be infrequent in my posts...
Too many threads tonight.




Mister Verschip says (BV wandering in off the TERRACE with a strange look on his face)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - May 09, 2002, 7:07 PM 41 of 42

The TERRACE becomes stranger ev'ry day.
