Reservatrol, my friend,
on you I'll depend.
If radiation reaches me,
What a sad happy day it'll be.

My NaPoWriMo Poem #4


  1. You want a transfusion?
    Prick me
    and see the illusion.


  2. Thanks, but I've already been injected. If not, your offer wouldn't be rejected. :)

  3. I guess if radiation is headed your way then drinking red wine is a good way to spend the day.

  4. ah! I do take the pills lol. I hope they do work indeed, a funny bit, I like. Enjoy the rally!

  5. Sounds like a good way to go! Neat and meaningful, Rachel.

  6. i thought this was a cute poem, but it has a meaning behind it....very mysterious..

    here is my link:

  7. @Doug - they really are giving regular updates here in CA to let us know if we need to be worried about the radiation from Japan. I drink wine to counteract their preemptive worry mostly. I hope I have some left when/if the radiation actually gets here. :)

    @lynniama - You take the pills? Are you near the radiation? :(

    @jessica - I definitely think at some point I'd have to just stop worrying and drink wine! :)

    @chim - Thank you! I definitely try to hint at additional (serious) meaning in every silly thing I write. :)

  8. I'm not sure I would be living in CA right now. That kind of stuff is really scary to me. Your meaning behind your poem is actually quite powerful to me.

  9. interesting to me,
    but your words are done super lovely...

    Thanks for sharing.

    Bless your day.

  10. @Mary - It probably helps that I'm not watching the news TOO much because I'm certain they are discussing radiation all the time. I hate that they make it sound so scary currently. Sure, it might reach us here and we may need to take precautions, but there is very little practical, non-panic-inducing advice being given. Good thing I found this news story on red wine protecting from radiation though. I'm all stocked up! :)

    @Jingle - Thanks for the sweet rhyming comment! Always a pleasure to have you stop by. :)

  11. such wonderful truth rachel.. my potluck..

  12. Interesting take on the events of the day. An evening drinking wine with a good friend is a good way to handle any difficulty :)

  13. Thank you fiveloaf & PhotoDiction. Yes, relaxing and enjoying times with friends is never a bad thing. :)


Rhyming or not, I would like a lot to hear the thoughts my words brought...
