Ten Minute Spill

Write a ten-line poem. Find a proverb, adage, familiar phrase, or brainy quote that you have changed in some way as well as five of the following words: cliff, blackberry, needle, cloud, voice, mother, whir, lick.

You have ten minutes.

No rhyming.

P.S.
We will be practising poetry posting permanently. Please create categories in your sidebars to begin sorting it all into manageable hierarchies. (Dashboard=>Manage=> Links=>Link Categories).
