    The light Flicks across the canvas like a firefly at night,
    As it pauses to heave, it shines more bright,
    A whisper of death I fear this may bring to light,
    Caution is spread along the river's might,
    As I attempt to squash a spider mite,
    I realize that not every line must rhyme,
    But still, squashing spider mites takes time,

    Another version of this thread would be to write a story. Someone starts a line then the next person follows, etc, etc... much like this poem, except every line doesn't have to rhyme...maybe in another thread, in another time....

    But still, squashing spider mites takes time,
    for here in the delta it is not a crime,

    No, as true as the regrettable time to say goodbye.

    It took 15 years, but @rockHEAD finally got his “other thread, in another time.”

    I really like this idea. I was trying to do one word at a time but that wasn't working out.

    Start a new thread. Let's write a story!

    You do know you're talking to a ghost from 15 years ago?

    I like the way you're going with this though, better than the 1-word attempt.
