Interesting subtle structure here. It’s very engaging. The theme moves from dark to light in unexpected ways. Nicely done.

This made me smile. I especially enjoyed “Yak and Yeti”!


Quilts and Guilt

2019-01-21
There’s a fluidity and pleasant singability to this that is a counterpoint to the dark theme. Well done, Kathy!


Mair's Tale

2019-01-20
What a joy to read! Brings images in dark strokes of brilliant colours. To echo Jim, it’s fine indeed!


Just A Thought

Country Fairs, country boys, memories...good memories. Thanks for the ride, Jim. Thoroughly enjoyed it.A little sad though. You can’t go home again.


Know

2019-01-05
There’s a wonderful sense of hope in this. Lovely.


Armed and Dangerous

2019-01-02
Yep! Bang on Larry. My guess though is that by this time the wives are part and parcel of the dark comedy having by now also drunk the koolaid.


Haiku for a new year

2019-01-02
Bravo and thank you!


80th Letter

2019-01-02
This is entirely too close to home! The daily challenge to overcome internal and age agrivated inertia is never ending and progressive! Happy New Year, my friend!


Welcome 2019

2019-01-01
Our constant is in dire need of change. Let’s hope that at the beginning of this curious 365 day cycle, we see,during it, the change needed. “May you live in interesting times, Larry”

Happy New Year!


Loneliness

2018-12-31
A wonderfully constructed piece. Your sense of pathos is superb. Then the sunlit blast of the last phrase. Well done.


Summer’s Light in Winter’s Night

2018-12-31
So beautifully written Kathy. The theme so well defined and evolved. This resonates so well. I share the same hopes and wishes.
Happy New Year!


The Tyranny of Distance

Elle, this is simply achingly lovely.


Bridge Over My Eyes

So well written and so tenderly painful. Great work, Dave.

Captive

2018-12-29
Wow! Shivering from this and not necessarily from the Cold!


WRITERS WRITE! (Completed)

2018-12-28
Writers are pilot/navigators of the past,present and future both in real history and in fiction. From Gibbons and Josephus to Tolkien and Lewis to Asimov and Rottenbury , they have all taken us where no reader has ever trod.


The Country is Not Yours

2018-12-22
Powerful and well written. There seems to be a global sense of decline and anxiety these days. You’ve marked it well.

Lovely, Jim. Simply lovely!

As I Kneel

One simple comment, Larry.
BRAVO!


Wishful Slumber

2018-12-10
This speak very eloquently to me of the spiritual journey of North American First Nations. I feel the sudden awareness of loss never to be recovered and of pain never to be comforted. Very well written and extremely thought provoking.


Inwardly Far Away

2018-11-08
This one makes me smile and then.... think. Well done Dave.


CrossFire

2018-11-08
You’ve stopped me cold with this. I never realized that to honestly be authentic is to seek no solas and to have no defence.


See the Pyramids

2018-11-08
Patti Page would love this!
What a great take on an old standard.
The rythm and rhyme are perfect.
Bravo.


The Tactile Feel of the Living

2018-11-04
Dave you’re so correct. Nothing holds a candle to the touch of a hand on mine! Love and care are most intensely shared through the intimacy of touch.


At the Town Garden

2018-11-04
Philip and Daniel Berrigan would approve and salute your choice , as do I.


Encomium

2018-10-24
Thomas... my words fail me. I can only use yours to comment.

“I quail before your wakeful eloquence.
My mind goes numb. My cogitation's lame.
Your poem breathes and pulses. Deaf nerves dance.”


BECOMING HOMELESS!

2018-10-24
Ken you’ve expressed very surgically what I’ve felt for a long time. We can be smug and superior and look down on the homeless as “lazy” or “stupid” but we do so at our peril! The safety net we think is iron clad is really just a thread that can snap in a minute putting each of us in a position of being “homeless”


I Think No-one Understands Me

2018-10-19
I have no problem understanding you, Dave. Great poem!


Contributor's Note

2018-10-07
Pleasure to meet you, sir. Time for a pint or two?


America

Very vivid, Ashe but also dead on.


72nd Letter to a Poet

2018-10-05
Three am peanut butter sandwiches is very familiar territory. Apparently for you also. Well written.


Five Cinquains

2018-10-01
Simply lovely. Each one a gentle riff, a melody with five movements.


Xvii (I Do Not Love You...)

2018-10-01
His work always takes my breath away!


Dreams for Waking and Thoughts for Taking

2018-09-30
Mind wandering day dreaming. Having read this, I now find myself doing as you have done, Dave. Just free associating with the sounds and visions of the world within my view and hearing. Thanks for giving me the impetus to do that!


Prospector

2018-09-30
You got me thinking with this one, Asha.
A curious poem of seek and find.
We are all prospectors in some way I suppose. Every relationship another search for treasure within the other.


The water of the waves

2018-09-29
A very worthy meditative poem.
