Conversational Atoms

What a unique personification! Well done!


The Blind Leading the Blind

2018-09-21
Powerfully perception darkly written but regrettably true. Where and when will it end, no one knows.


A Fleeting Thought

2018-09-21
Iíve never been fired simply because Iíve always worked for myself. I have lost some significant business clients though, one of which represented over half my income. That was shocking but also energizing. Iíve also walked the dull and mind numbing halls of life and was very glad for its riddance.

Bibek, thanks for writing this poem. It refocused me, in and odd way, much appreciated.


One Wednesday Morning

A wonderful encounter beautifully described.


News of the Day

Absolutely love the last one!


If All Else Fails

2018-09-15
Silence... from which all thoughts flow.


A Theory

2018-09-14
Perfectly, imperfectly driven to the last two lines that are a real zinger!


YOU SHOULD HAVE BEEN THERE!

2018-09-10
Tall tales and telling whoppers. Like the fisherman describing the one he almost caught! I believe some of the greatest novelists weíre guilty of just this!


Corners of porches

2018-09-08
Some corners hold a special peace. I recall one with lilacs and lilles of the valley. Thanks for helping me remember, Thomas.


Nothing On Sale

Brilliant perception, Dave.

Well written, Larry. My heroes may not but I definitely have feet of clay.


THOSE WHO SPEAK OUT!

2018-09-05
YES! As usual, straight to the bulls eye, Ken. Bang on!


Time Shall Pass, And So We Must

All too true, my friend and beautifully crafted!

Nicely done Thomas!


How Will You Remember Me?

2018-08-26
I had to com back. There is a vulnerability expressed here in a beautiful guileness fashion that draws the reader in itís innocence. Very well written.


How Will You Remember Me?

2018-08-26
I will remember you my lady for your words phrases and loving laughing pen. Such a wonderful if Melancholy poem.

2018-08-25
What a marvellous encounter, Ken! She sounds charming. I hope you see her again for your sake and hers.

Well written as well!

That was supposed to be certainty


Poor, Fussy Man

Thereís always tomorrow. Sleep well, my friend in the certain that tomorrow will be today in the morning!


WHAT EVER FLOATS YOUR BOAT!

A Beautiful, Useless Thing

Enjoyed reading this, Sameen.


Sixth Elegy

2018-08-16
My most sincere condolences Thomas. Your grief is palpable.


Gun Show Girl

2018-08-16
I went to gun show once. I found it almost surreal. Iíve been a shooter most of my life but always thought of guns as very serious business. The Easy offhanded environment I found at the show honestly scared me.


Susan Hanging Hearts

2018-08-14
Dave, thereís a lyrical magical quality to this. Almost feels like a fable from long ago.


From the Preface to Culture and Anarchy

2018-08-14
A wonderfully erudite description of culture. I find it curious that you could strike the word ďcultureĒ and insert ďspirituality ď seamlessly.


The Holy Ghost

2018-08-14
What an Amazing earthy down and dirty take on the Holy Ghost.
Since the HG is all things to all people, Iíve got to believe in the reality of your description.


CHEEKING ME MUM!

2018-08-10
Wow! Great story. But you still had to come home sometime and Mum was waiting....😜


TWO OLD HEAVY METAL FANS!

2018-08-08
Itís a sad state of affaires when you have to ESCAPE Your care Home! Love the headbangers!


Bootlicking 101

2018-08-08
This is very vivid! I can see these two and their animated discussion as if Iím leaning on a lamppost outside a small store and they are two employees there. Makes me smile.


Wheel of Fortune

2018-08-07
Iíve often felt that the wheel of fortune is really a spiral it returns to the same spot but in a different plane. Going back will trigger the old memory but the occasion will permit the making or others new and unrelated.


Tripping to Tresco

2018-08-07
One could sing this entire poem! What wonderful rhymes and rhythms youíve developed with a lovely chorus to boot. I here an echo of Gilbert and Sullivan in this. Simply lovely.


Stop All The Clocks

2018-08-07
My condolences, Thomas. Your painful grief trumps any comments I may have about style and structure.


Unconscious ramblings

2018-08-07
Oh my goodness... there is an unnamed devil in this. Or maybe stillness is the devil. It isnít really. Stillness is where calm comes from. This is a powerful perpetual motion piece packed with all skill you have at describing the animate. Well written.


her love

2018-08-06
There is halting and haunting quality to this poem that draws me in and holds me. Well done!


Letter to a Friend

2018-08-05
One of the serious challenges with being a late poster is that those before you have so appropriately already spoken your thoughts. With that caveat, I can only echo Bibek. The loss of an intimate friendship either through disagreement, death or distance is a traumatic occasion. You have expressed that in clear uncluttered and convincing style. Bravo!


For the Leftovers

2018-08-05
This is brilliantly dark; almost gothic. But itís melancholic as well. A dirge to the mislead. Your style phrasing and structure, impeccable,as always.


Today

2018-08-05
Love and today. What a magnificent sentiment! Thank you for the reminder,Fleming.


The Divide

2018-08-04
The greatest sin one can commit it to act and feel like they are God. Alas that sin is committed with alarming frequency of late... and maybe it has been so forever.


Scattered Images

2018-08-04
Your ďimagesĒ are of sights, smells, sounds and taste, interesting. All are soft edged gentle and insightful.

Pax Tecum, frater.


Biting Flies and Bill Collectors

2018-08-04
WHOA! This is a vivid and visceral portrait of a DayMare. Great stuff Larry. You had me riding along side you trying to tame my terrified mount!


Not You, Kathmandu

2018-08-04
Change is painful. This storied city steeped in philosophy and history has indeed become a ďmalformed childĒ spiritualism given way to the chaos or urban sprawl and iphones.


Those Who Care

2018-08-04
Thank God for the innocence and the yet to be contaminated next generation. How do we teach them before others taint them?
