Shadows

2018-01-23
Daughters grow to women and break a fathers heart. But if you’ve done your job well enough (and I’m sure you have) they return as women seeking what they left behind.


The Snowmobile

2018-01-23
Yep! Fun is fun until something solid gets in the way! Made me smile, Helen. Thanks.

Guiltless Layabout

There’s a lot to be said for simply existing without acting in any way. It leads to meditation and skillful writing. Hope your on the mend Larry.


THE CESSPIT OF RATS! (work inprogres - this up to read reponces)

2018-01-15
The great circle returns to the horrors of the 1930s guess we’re doomed to repeat this utter craziness because folks just can’t seem to learn from history and grow up! Ken, as usual you’ve hit it snap on!


Health Care

2018-01-13
Constant pain is a horrible debilitation. I wish you well, Larry.
You write about the healthcare system. Any system that earns its profits from third parties breads the staff nd ttitudes you so well describe. What is amazing to me is that there are those others who give a damn about patients and go the extra mile for them. Hope you find a champion among them.


Today Has Its Own Smell

Not Quite a Poem

2017-12-27
Certainly I echo Pony’s comments about your amazingly astute term “ nettled soul” however as brilliantly evocative as those two words are, the whole is in itself a caring and touching prayer and reflection on so many who “suffer” Christmas. Bravo


Exultant

2017-12-27
I was in need of laughter this morning and reading your poem provided it. I’m still chuckling! What wonderful brevity.

A lovely fond memory of both a memorable girl and a treasured garment.


Where I've Been

2017-12-23
My dear friend, I can feel your pain palpably as it mirrors itself, albeit much less intensely, in my own body. I pray for your strength to endure what will be. You have much of significant value to share with us. Your command of words and emotion Has never failed you and never will. Witness this piece I have just read. It impacted me viscerally. I wait anxiously for your future works describing your victory over this huge and heavy challenge.

LAYS WITH IN US ALL!

IT IS NOT A PROFESSINAL OTHERS NEED!

2017-12-21
Ken as usual you’ve gotten to the germ of the reality! Well written!


Psalm 1

2017-12-21
Having reread this more than a few times, because of its poignancy and beauty; I can hear Copeland’s “Fanfare For The Common Man” being played between the verses.


Psalm 1

2017-12-21
Beautifully said, Thomas.David couldn’t have written it better!
With my humble translation of a joyful hymn “lauda Deum, a quo omnia profluunt”

SNOW IS LOVELY TILL IT's NOT! (Addishans)

2017-12-16
Made me chuckle, Ken! I remember so fondly all those scenes you so aptly describe. And, yes, slush is a mess. When I was a kid, Snow stayed all winter and slush was a sign of spring!

To Glenn Gould

2017-12-11
Unique perception brilliantly carried through., Sameen. Gould was a unique pianist.


THINKING!

2017-12-10
Yep! This thinking business becomes addictive and takes on a mind of its own! Zen masters sometimes call it monkey brain.


Actions Speak

2017-12-10
Great sentiment and a great toast to the bride and groom!


Arthritis

2017-12-10
Damn! I’m with you in spirit and corporeally. Seems that most of my days are spend being amazed at what I can no longer do without some discomfort of another. Obviously written directly from some “best be forgotten” joint somewhere! 😜

Trade Show Blues

2017-11-15
I would hate to count the name mber of trade shows I've attended both as a visitor and mostly as an exhibitor. Hated every ne. Too much alcohol too mush artificial Bon Amie too much junk food. Any above all way too much cost. Larry, I fully sympathize! Go have a double and mention my name to the bartender!


November

2017-11-13
A unique perspective,Jim. And a good choice! I love November with its winds, snow cold and expectancy of year end and Yuletide.


October Again
