    Himalayas cry
    Snow recreates the white face
    tread softly children

    children do not heed warning
    Avalanches are invoked.

    stir up my essence
    recreate it as soft as
    the Himalayas

    not a pale snow– a deep green
    summer so that I won’t end

    The Himalayas
    Sound of mind and body can
    recreate the soul.
    I softly call the dickens
    to my snowy safe-haven.

    Did I hear that right?
    Recreate Charles Dickens?
    The teacher is nuts.
    The man is cooler than the
    Himalayas. There’s no way.

    the himalayas
    beautiful like Dickens’ words
    born to recreate

    they perform the work of god
    like a dreaming little bird

    Himalayas? Odd.
    Well, ain’t that just the dickens.
    How the hell do I…?

    recreate the sand.
    sheep bleat at curses.

    and Dickens galloped
    across the Himalayas
    recreating sound

    racing against the sunset
    God’s hands close over the clouds

  8. jasmine w. August 29, 2011 / 7:20 pm

    the sun moves like hands
    rise like the Himalayas
    recreate the earth

    Dickens watches, face upturned
    the melody of rebirth

    The Himalayas
    Re-create the horizon.
    On a blue canvas.

    What the dickens, you may say—
    White on blue can be painted.

  10. Dakotah August 29, 2011 / 7:21 pm

    the himalayas
    you recreate when we met
    it was less cold then

    charles dickins would be ashamed
    of our bawdy appearance

  11. Carmen August 29, 2011 / 7:24 pm

    Not himalayas —
    pink flurries recreate salt
    what the dickens — soup?

    snowing sensical snowflakes
    the flurries whirl forever

  12. Liam August 29, 2011 / 7:26 pm

    Recreate the snow
    upon the Himalayas,
    wind like the dickens.

    And the eye of the sky is
    the breath of the sun undone

  13. Laura August 29, 2011 / 7:26 pm

    recreate the taste
    of the himalayas
    in dickens’s dust
    forget all the lost stories
    as you climb above the clouds

  14. Antoinette August 29, 2011 / 7:39 pm

    You scared the dickens
    out of me, so much so I
    could not recreate

    When we talk no it’s colder than
    I felt on Himalayas
