what does Jim see?

Poem for the Day

(I love this poem, and yet it's a challenge for me: to see what he sees, always.)

34. As kingfishers catch fire, dragonflies draw flame

by Gerard Manley Hopkins

AS kingfishers catch fire, dragonflies dráw fláme;
As tumbled over rim in roundy wells
Stones ring; like each tucked string tells, each hung bell’s
Bow swung finds tongue to fling out broad its name;
Each mortal thing does one thing and the same: 5
Deals out that being indoors each one dwells;
Selves—goes itself; myself it speaks and spells,
Crying Whát I do is me: for that I came.

Í say móre: the just man justices;
Kéeps gráce: thát keeps all his goings graces; 10
Acts in God’s eye what in God’s eye he is—
Chríst—for Christ plays in ten thousand places,
Lovely in limbs, and lovely in eyes not his
To the Father through the features of men’s faces.
I'm here now

Remix the drabble stories are up!

Can't reveal what I wrote for this round, but here's the round 6 tag--looking for the 10 index posts, and you'll be able to find remixes by fandom.

My fic Day Has Gone Down was remixed as Ten Words. :)

There are some great House, Bones, and X-Files fics. Keep an eye on the rating and pairings, though, we have a few really weird ones in this mix.
