Word for the Week
a mixture of different elements
Poetry and Alchemy have more in common than one might expect. Both require the use of appropriate measures. The correct application of the necessary elements, words, punctuation, narrative, meaning, stress and rest vs. stone, mineral, fire, water, earth and air, determine the quality and quantity of the end product of both processes. If the guiding principals of either art/science are misapplied, you can end up with a real stinker.
