Masquerade of Love

2017-01-17
Very well analyzed. It is the constructs that give us all the problems. But then again they give us all the romanticized pleasure too. Do I believe in love? Yes. Do I know what it is exactly? No, lol


Universe

2017-01-16
Reminds me of a telephone exchange. You describe our place in the universe very well.


it's not a stupid idea

2017-01-16
It would be the evolution of cultures. Interesting to think of.


I am Nightshade

2017-01-16
This exudes confidence and sexuality. Great stuff.


My Aotearoa

2017-01-16
Wonderful imagery.


World Today

2017-01-16
Wonderful understanding here. You think that it would be easy to get along. Sometimes I think remembrance of history is what is to blame. Well expressed my dear friend :)


tempestuous child January blown

2017-01-16
January is violent i suppose. Your work is always enjoyable.


THE EARTH's SEASONS CHANGEING!

2017-01-16
I'd like to think that world can survive us. Maybe something will wipe us out like the dinosaurs.


Inside the Mind's Doorway

2017-01-16
A quite bleak view of aging. I suppose it is true. You lose things you never get back. Very well crafted with metaphor and reality.


Shivering in Omaha

2017-01-16
The sad thing is that you never really find out.


The Monster in your Bed

2017-01-16
A new take on "the sky is falling". Strange how people always fall for that. Nicely done.


SS TRUMP

2017-01-16
You describe the feeling well. There are always rats and they are never loyal.


Eye Strain

2017-01-16
That's the best way to be. there is nothing more deflating than being ignored by someone you want.


Aries

2017-01-16
I am sure that is true. Nice work.


With Loneliness

2017-01-16
Sad but delightful.


Yes

2017-01-16
Short but very good.


vices & virtues

2017-01-16
Strange how events effect moralities. I would like to think that love and common sense will prevail. Though I am not sure.


A Broken Heart

2017-01-16
I was trying to see a parallel here with Homer's Hector. Perhaps when he knew all was lost and raged at Achilles. A broken heart does strange things to the mind. This was a great story.


By another name

2017-01-11
Interesting. What is in a name? This has the structure of a perceptive thought experiment.


Anecdote of a lantern

2017-01-11
This is really interesting. The cave metaphor is a good one. It always remains true even if there are no visitors. Well done.


The real reality

2017-01-11
Such wise words. Spiritual grounding cannot be tricked or manipulated. It is a beacon that draws in only one direction.


Freefall

2017-01-11
It floats down like a gentle leaf. Well done. The banyan tree reflection shows us the truth of our world.


act of war: the know how.

2017-01-11
It is all confusing. The first casualty of war is truth.


addiction

2017-01-09
Love is the drug and we are all addicts. Nice work.


Consider The Zebra

2017-01-09
Very clever indeed. That is why they hide on pedestrian crossings :)


The Magician And His Assistant

2017-01-08
That is so cool. You managed to combine tender love, magic and philosophy all into a great story. I suppose you would never be bored with a magician :) Love it.


Ghost Stories

2017-01-07
There is still pain and awkward moments. Do we ever get over things? Some people never, some people constantly. But is all there in our head waiting to be reconciled. Powerful and angst driven.


HAPPY HAPPY NEW YEAR!

2017-01-07
Same to you Ken. Keep em coming :)


lad's first date

2017-01-07
Great metaphor. First dates often feel like that.


A Fracture Tale of Eden

2017-01-07
Powerful Kathy. When these things happen we tend to look back to nature for some rhyme or reason. Patterns occur in nature, science and history. Don't apologize because I understand this and feel with you. You express it wonderfully.


northern light

2017-01-04
beautifully expressive of such feelings :)


Six Short Takes (2010)

2017-01-04
These are all great. I love the poet sleeping one. Is there a gin that is 100 proof? That would warm even the coldest soul. I enjoyed these very much :)


12:00 am, January First

2017-01-04
Yes, that line stands out for me too. I never understood the importance of new year. Just another day really. Suggesting things we know we will never do. You portrayed well the plight of those of us who don't care much.


I'M GIVER OF BOOKS - TERRY PRATTCHET's OF COURSE!

2017-01-04
That is such a great thing to do Ken :)


Gods

2017-01-04
Interesting. We are linked.


love's in the fridge

2016-12-29
Interesting. I too like the last line :)


A Christmas Carol

2016-12-29
Nice :) I hope your Christmas was a good one. Have a happy new year :)


Feeders

2016-12-29
Very powerful. Full bellies and empty hearts rings true at this time of year.


A Christmas Prayer

2016-12-29
Wonderful images Sameen. We need to cast aside our woes, even if for one night.
Lights from windows all coalesce
Into a crystal ball so arabesque

That is simply brilliant stuff man.


Goodbye

2016-12-29
So sad. But heartfelt.


November

2016-12-29
Two fine pieces. One of winter desolation and the other of modern desolation. The line "its prayers are phrased to distant vacancy" is so great.


multiculturalism

2016-12-29
That's what they would like to achieve. Like many different dialects melding into one.


Off piste

2016-12-29
Yeah, as long as the thought is there then that is good enough. I have not had a good pub session for years. Thanks for bringing the feel back :)


MAY ALL HAVE A GRAND AND HAPPY WINTERS HOLLADAY! HAPPY SUMMERS HOLDAY TO THE AUSSIS!

2016-12-29
Yeah it's a tough life for us convicts. Cheers :)


Raccoon

2016-12-29
I want to be a raccoon again too :( They are the gypsies of the modern world. Nice one.


A Morning in Concepcion

2016-12-29
I agree, this is powerful. I never understand what makes killing right in certain situations. I just finished watching a documentary about Lee Marvin. A man who's life was forever changed by his war experience. This is an excellent piece.


The "Wild" Women of Torio

2016-12-29
This is so good and so true of many I suppose. Hard heart is the worst condition of all. When a hand is given only to be ignored or slapped away it is hard to present again. Are they happy? Do they know if they are happy? Do they care? As usual your observational story has made me think.


judy nails

2016-12-29
I understand. We are attracted to things we cannot be I suppose. I wanted to be a punk at one stage. Sometimes the memories the images initiate are enough. I like this :)

Homeward Bound

2016-12-23
This is a masterly snapshot of rural america. Does it still exist like this? The idea of the train runs through and holds it all together so well. I agree that is could be a Whitman work :)
