  1. That is an interesting poem. If ‘the national gemstone produced most bounteously in Australia’, I wonder where the hammer that I use for slapping the thunder was produced in.

    • Dear Subhan Zeus,

      Yes, SoundEagle wonders about that too. Thank you very much for honouring SoundEagle with your very first thunderous comment at SoundEagle’s blog. SoundEagle awaits further thunder bolts and lightning strikes from your heavenly highness!

      • ah, that’s too much, please. My comment was just a self-mockery, you know that.

      • Perhaps we shall grant your sudden self-deprecation with just a little demotion: you are now Subhan Thor instead. ๐Ÿ™‚ SoundEagle likes that title.

      • Ah, please, nothing like that, not at all. What I have in my tagline of my blog is just a metaphor. The light is happy days, and the thunder is sad days, so it’s all about metaphor. The truth is in the last sentence: I’m just a man who’s learning to write fiction and poetry. Now that’s the truth, because I am an apprentice.

        Now that you bring it up, I need to clarify that half of what I say are meaningless, but the only reason for me to do that is so the other half would reach you.

      • Subhan, since you like this poetic post about October Opal, SoundEagle thought that you might be interested in SoundEagle‘s other poetic post about September Sapphire.

  2. I read a wonderful story, about how the opal came to have such wonderful colours, when I was a child. It was in a book of children’s stories called “On a Pincushion”. A variety of pins & brooches reside together on a pincushion, in a jewelry box. They take it in turns to relate stories from their ‘lives’. The opal is last & tells a wonderful, but sad, tale of true love between a sunbeam & moonbeam.

    You have created a wonderful site here. Congratulations & thank you for visiting my fledgling blog๐Ÿ™‚

    • That is indeed an imaginative and heuristic story for children, which must have been so well written that it still registers in your memory. Thank you for sharing here.

      We both have fairly new blogs to the extent that SoundEagle only really started blogging meaningfully and consistently since August 2012. Time and energy are always in short supply, given my caretaking duties and other responsibilities.
