Litany

Great singing and writing :)


Goodness

2017-03-14
Great poem. There is the ability to do evil or good in all of us and it is a matter of choice. Though even the people that we hold up as heroes have flaws.


Slap and Tickle

2017-03-14
Great stuff :)


East of Damascus

2017-03-14
Deeply moving. War from a different angle.


Zoned In

2017-03-14
This is very good. I think we all would like to be exorcised from our past. Many people do it by moving from place to place. I agree that the short lines make this so effective. Bravo.


serpentines swirl with the coming

2017-03-12
Great stuff. The analogy with dragon and greed is a good one.


A Reasonable Woman

2017-03-12
This is very good. It has such a great depth of meaning. I hate keys. They signify being locked out. The key dying in your pocket is so interesting to think of. One of your best :)


Counting Gratitudes

2017-03-10
This is wonderful. Evoking the spirit of a child to count blessings.


mortal

2017-03-10
Powerful. There are some people in life we know we are the better for having met.


Do We Do I

2017-03-10
I like this. especially the lines Do I hide behind the walls
Or do I project on them what everybody knows.


from both hands

2017-03-10
yeah it balances. Swings and roundabouts.


Don Juan in hell

2017-03-10
Interesting. Sounds like excessive partying.


Beauty

2017-03-09
Very logical. The best way to understand the true meaning of beauty is to watch Charles Laughton in The Hunchback of Notre Dame. This is a fine thought provoking piece.


Let Me Go

2017-03-09
This is sad but beautiful. It is so wonderful that you can express these things so well.


manifest destiny

2017-03-02
It is amazing how often those two personality types end up together. Opposites attract I suppose.


Sonnet 6

2017-02-27
There are a lot of shoulds here. I suppose that is more positive than should not. Common crushes are quite healthy things. They make you feel young.


Sonnet 8

2017-02-27
It is great that you can work out what constellation it was. here you have to go to the country to do that now. Do lovers have stars? We wish upon fallen ones. I always thought that strange. I enjoyed this.


Jump From a Plane

2017-02-27
You make it sound exciting. Though it must be terrifying.


civilization

2017-02-27
So true. You come up with some good lines.


civilization

2017-02-27
So true. You come up with some good lines.


Attraction

2017-02-27
Very good indeed. reminds me of a Bogey movie where he grabs a woman when she is flustered and kisses her :)


Karl Lagerfeld

2017-02-27
He is obviously a rich shadow though.


Can't I Just Skip Ahead to the Conclusion?

2017-02-27
It's a hard one. I suppose we would like to choose how we go. I do know that the older you get the more you get used to things going wrong. Maybe there is a tipping point. This was very sad.


Sonnet 7

2017-02-21
I agree, there are some great lines in here. My favourite was "precincts of your smile". You know you are reading a good poet when every line is a zinger :)


When I Win Me the Lottery

2017-02-21
Very good. I like the ending.


Never Came Home

2017-02-21
yes, we should always remember.


All I am

2017-02-21
This is sad in a way. But maybe most people are like that.


Lunch?

2017-02-21
The candle still burns. Hope still trying to connect.


A flower garden

2017-02-21
Beautiful and worth thinking about.


FIRST THEY WERE AFTER THE MIGRANTS!

2017-02-21
Yes Ken. it is a very slippery slope.


www

2017-02-21
I think it is not mean't to. That is the beauty of it.


Spiritual partners

2017-02-21
Nicely done :)


what to do

2017-02-21
I love the term "techno stupor". Not many people stand up for what is right anymore. Or when they do stand up they usually do not know the full story of their cause. The word "idealistic" is now an insult. There is no more honor, generosity or courtesy. Don Quixote has died in our hearts. I know that this fine piece is probably about american politics. Forgive me my little rant.


Blessed Space

2017-02-21
This is so beautiful. Almost devotional. It exudes the joyous nature of a true relationship.


February Fourteenth

2017-02-20
Lots of good imagery Bibek. It makes the reader wonder what could be so depressing after all that natural brilliance.


The Answer

2017-02-19
Very nice. Richness is in with people we love.


A Barbed Life

2017-02-13
You explain the journey so well. The format works so well that I think they should put this on a plaque mounted on the next space probe destined for deep space. It would make more sense than anything else we would try to explain. Great stuff :)


Purple Iris Fields of Time

2017-02-13
This is simply beautiful Kathy. But I am sure your heart is not that ancient. I love the mention of Saturn's rings and the imagery is so wonderful.


fordism

2017-02-10
Interesting stuff. The politicalness of movement. By Ford do you refer to Henry Ford?


Urgent Matter

2017-02-10
This is good. Incredibly profound. Probably too much so for my meager brain. But the idea that we become stardust is such a pleasant idea.


Far From Home

2017-02-10
This is very nice. It must have been a good song. The rhymes are great and the ending hits home.


New beginning

2017-02-10
Time speeds up when we are happy. At least it seems to. I enjoyed this.


Thinking

2017-02-10
This is really beautiful. The sentiment flows through so sincerely :)


Look Up

2017-02-10
I like this one. We would all like to fly and do the things you mention. I hope you make good use of that jacket for a long time :)


Je ne regrette rien - je regrette beaucoup!

2017-02-08
Can there be shame without regret? That song is one of the most powerful statements of human frailty I have ever heard.


robots

2017-02-08
Interesting work. I suppose the robots would have to become sentient before it becomes a problem.


When I look around, I still see cavemen

2017-02-06
You paint a bleak but true picture. We have sold the future for the monetary comfort of today. Stripped our morality for the selfishness of our small worlds. Nicely written.


Beware

2017-02-06
Well done :)


Thinkers

2017-02-06
Wonderful :)


AS A WRITER!

2017-02-06
Unfortunately yes ken. But you need to keep writing.
