Dark Esque Night

Must be vodou, blown in from Haiti.


Lonely, Tired, Happy and Worried

2017-03-24
I like the tiny feet.


Breathless

2017-03-23
Nice.


charity & birdsong

2017-03-23
It's almost like a nursery rhyme. I especially liked the third stanza.


The Viking in Me

2017-03-22
I enjoyed this. If things get too boring, you always can go to Syria, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, or Ukraine.


From Me To Everyone

2017-03-21
I will. Nicely done, Dave.


Vowels (after Rimbaud)

2017-03-21
I like it. Vivid imagery.


hay for the children

2017-03-20
Well done, Bibek! Great metaphor.


Evening

2017-03-20
This is very nice.


You're Quite a Gal

2017-03-20
I'm standing. I'm applauding. I'm yelling "Bravo!"


WHY I WRITE!

2017-03-20
You are, indeed, and you are loved and appreciated in your community.


prelude to a nocturne

2017-03-20
This is great. Alas, that fear of making the false move leads one to become stiff and artificial, almost guaranteeing that something will go wrong. You have to get past that. Who's standing in your way, Marketa or you?


Beached

2017-03-20
Very nice. You submerged us with you.


The Book Rack

2017-03-16
A pantuom. I had to look it up. It's well done and I enjoyed it.


Monasticism

2017-03-16
Nice.


Beauty Disgraced

2017-03-16
This is a very powerful poem. It is a poem. Since that is so, you have the small consolation of having made art out of something horrible.


Silence, I know you

2017-03-15
Nicely done.


Verily

2017-03-14
Most amusing.


HEAR THE SUN SHINES!

2017-03-14
Grrr. It snowed here this morning.


GULLS AND CROWS AT GONE MIDNIGHT! (INSPIRED BY JAMSBO ROCKDA WORK-HOW CAN A BIRD))

2017-03-13
Justice.


How Can a Bird

2017-03-13
This is great!


spring collection

2017-03-13
That's what a change in the weather can do. Nicely written.


Pornographic poetry

2017-03-13
Doing research for the next poem, I suppose.


Nature's Litmus Paper

2017-03-12
Well said.


This is nice

2017-03-10
Oh, this is quite good. I really liked the last three lines of the first stanza, also the resigned good cheer at the conclusion of the second.

"Here is good." Yeah, it is. It's important to notice that from time to time.


Room For Memories

2017-03-10
Very nice, Dave, very poignant.


Gently Sways

2017-03-09
A wonderful thought. I suggest Airlie Beach.


Litany

2017-03-09
If Walt Whitman had lived in Boston... One line,

progenitrix of my most peaceful thoughts.

alone is worth the price of admission.


Slap and Tickle

2017-03-09
I'm with Thomas.


The Memoirs of the Invisible Man

2017-03-08
Brilliant!


enlightenment

2017-03-08
You can overcome all of this. Turn off the phone and the TV. Go outside and apprehend reality directly. Eat the chapatti, and then tell us exactly how it tastes


Mobile Leakage

2017-03-07
"This is going to be like shooting fish in a barrel."


Morning Exercise

2017-03-07
Do as you'd like. There are many reasons for writing poems, but be aware that, if you write a parody of Sir Philip Sydney, I shall come to Boston and strike you.


media

2017-03-07
The media exist to reap profits from exposing us to advertisements. That's all. No nobility, no instructional value, matters.


Breadwinner

2017-03-02
I love it!


The Last Sonnet, for Now

2017-03-02
You know their influence. You don't really need their help.


Laugh After Closing Time

2017-02-28
I like this Dave. It reminded me of a Pink Floyd song.


THERE ARE SOME WRITERS!

2017-02-28
I've seen your YouTube. I don't believe you.


Sonnet 5

2017-02-28
Though the bush in Sonnet C never was named, it does seem that you've been beating around it. Very amusing.


Hokey Old Moon

2017-02-27
That's funny.


The act

2017-02-27
I like this. Defiance, even in defeat, is ennobling.


REMEMBERING WHEN! (a work in progrtes)

2017-02-27
We've always been lied to. It's just that we've wised up.


Villanelle

2017-02-27
Excellent.


Sonnet C

2017-02-27
This one's a lot of fun. How about a nettle? They do have lovely little blossoms toward the end of summer.


Musings

2017-02-24
Very melancholy, but beautiful.


A Cursory Rhyme

2017-02-24
One needs to do both, I suppose.


1989

2017-02-24
Excellent!


How It Happens

2017-02-22
A fine poem. I believe that you're right.


Iowa Eternal

2017-02-22
Well done. I used to have to drive from Nebraska to Saint Paul to visit my daughter. During winter, I saw the silence and haunted sunsets. That time of year, Iowa has a stark, melancholy beauty.


M U M M E N S C H A N Z

2017-02-22
Yes. A sly observation.
