Bully

The subject does seem familiar. More importantly, the portrait is first-class, spare, but well-drawn.


After Blake

2017-05-29
Nice. A faithful reflection.


Nicotine

2017-05-28
Noir. Very nice.


juggling lighted chants

2017-05-28
Interesting night. I think that I might have stepped back a little.


Bud

2017-05-27
Let's hope.


Carry On Absently

2017-05-27
Excellent advice!


Notebook: March 10

2017-05-27
Tough night, wonderful meditation.


Monastic Wisdom

2017-05-27
Sounds about right. One easily can overthink such things.


Sleep and Poetry

2017-05-27
That's a neat trick. It sure beats nightmares.


Waiting

2017-05-27
Well done.


And We Call It, "Love"

2017-05-27
A con perpetrated by our genes for their own sakes.


Appeal

2017-05-27
Nicely put.


mathematician

2017-05-27
Nobody else had seen the cave.


solipsist or empirist

2017-05-27
A solipsist simply can't be sure.


And Then There Comes

2017-05-25
Grace. Yes, exactly.


Upstream

2017-05-25
I'm not much of a mariner, but you've described how I felt when I was on a sailbat last summer.


Forgotten Holes

2017-05-25
Very true and well said.


April: Ghazal

2017-05-25
Very nice!


WHEN LIFE!

2017-05-19
That's how things were here, too. It could have been worse. I understand that it snowed in Denver.


Scollay Square Song

2017-05-19
Romance reaches the Eastie. Dylan Thomas would have liked this.


Homeless

2017-05-19
This is very nice, the good and the bad both well described.


People Cannot Change

2017-05-19
Excellent in all respects, Dave.


Here

2017-05-19
Spring never has been so delightfully described.


meeting imaginary friends

2017-05-18
Nicely done.


Sadness

2017-05-18
Well said.


Bend In The River

2017-05-17
It sounds magical, and you've written about it well.


Counterclockwise

2017-05-13
I'm with Helen.


Life

2017-05-12
Good one, Joe. I love when the list approaches zero.


In our tenth year

2017-05-12
Good poem, sad subject.


Pinball Sense

2017-05-12
You could be describing people and their smartphones. Ding! Ding! Ding! Constant stimulation.


Gulls

2017-05-12
There's something very timely about this poem. Nicely done.


THE U.K GOING BACK TOWARDS ALL OF THIS?

2017-05-10
We are being taught that it's wrong to be decent to each other.


the i , the you

2017-05-09
This is an intriguing idea. A subject, like applied mathematics, will engross the one who studies it, but, perhaps, assuming a role, like Romeo, allows the actor to preserve himself.


Dirty Plates

2017-05-09
Procrastinate!


c l o s e r than - C L O S E

2017-05-09
I doubt that I have that power. Nice picture. It reminds of the week I spent on a sailboat last September as we sailed among Australia's Whitsunday Islands.


Ch 12: Reunion

2017-05-09
I like this. I'm not sure what's going on. Is it just a reunion, or is it a meeting with another purpose? In the end, it's an evening of drunken carousing. Such evenings create, and sustain, strong bonds.


Come Home Little Man

2017-05-09
Like everyone else, I took the last line like a punch to the gut.


I Still Love You

2017-05-09
I know the feeling (it's nicely expressed). It doesn't make sense at all.


A WRITERS MELTDOWN!

2017-05-06
It happens to everybody. We'll just wait.


Oranges for My Mother

2017-05-06
This is far and away your best poem, Bibek. I won't say that I entirely understand it, but I feel it. That's crucial.


Do You Know it?

2017-05-06
I'm submerged in the ambiguity of that last line. As for Moliere, I haven't read him in a long time, but I remember that Tartuffe was very funny, possible funny enough to rescue someone who is heartbroken.


Shopping with mom by Ann Wood

2017-05-05
Good!


In Praise of Coloured Bottles

2017-05-05
The glass half empty. The glass half full. Yes, I'll take the pretty colored shards of glass bottles over the plastic ones, but only after their razor edges have been rubbed away.


GRANDMA ´s (secret) MISTAKE

2017-05-04
I shudder to think which borders have been crossed.


Tolstoy’s Final Lesson

2017-05-04
I don't actually get the message, but the atmosphere is very nice.


Fountain Pens

2017-05-02
Joe's right. The imagery is excellent.


A POET AND THE POETS WORK

2017-04-30
It happens all of the time, doesn't it?


Summers Coming

2017-04-30
I agree with Pony.


My Cursor

2017-04-28
That's unacceptable! Silence is a must under such circumstances.


Cast Off

2017-04-28
This is very nice, Joe.
