Contradictions in every line of your stream of consciousness. How can we answer any of those questions any other way?
I enjoyed it.

Wounds

2018-02-24
So many wounds to bear. This is sad and beautiful.
Ashe


An Agnostic Approach

2018-02-24
How unusual and beautiful. Welcome!
Ashe


True Need

2018-02-24
Never believe what a politician says. Instead, see what he has done, and that is what he will continue to do.
I like the way you did this.
Ashe


Extraordinary Opposing Vocabulary

2018-02-23
Your opposing vocabulary is very descriptive. I enjoyed reading this, and I think there is a metaphor in there as well.
Ashe


I Would Kiss You

2018-02-23
I had never read this one before and had no idea you had such a romantic side, although I should have guessed reading your poems of the ocean and the boat. This is a Joseph I didn't know. :) Beautiful poem!
Ashe


Communities

2018-02-23
I get stitched together whenever I fall apart by good friends. I wouldn't trade them for anything. Good poem.
Ashe


You

2018-02-23
A poem for someone you admire very much. I would think the feeling is mutual as you share the same qualities.
Ashe


THE KIDS OF FLORIDA!

2018-02-22
I love this one! Both content and composition.
Ashe


GUNS - PLASTICS - POLITICANS!

2018-02-22
Lobbyists run the government with their money. Plastics is a huge problem all over the world as the ocean carries its huge load from one end of the globe to another. Awareness to save the oceans is getting much good attention lately, so I see some possible hope there.
The two killers: Guns and Plastics. Thanks for the awareness.
Ashe


This So-called President

2018-02-22
It's clear to me too. He has broken every rule of decency to mankind and will be proven a traitor.
Ashe


For you???

2018-02-22
In the words of the great master, Kahil Gibran:

" But let there be spaces in your togetherness and let the winds of the heavens dance between you. Love one another but make not a bond of love: let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls."
Ashe


A Hymn to Poetbay:

2018-02-22
A sad poem of loneliness, but it's well thought out and written.
Yes, we come to poetbay when in sorrow and when in joy. We are lucky to have this place and the good friends here.
Ashe


Dear Diurna

2018-02-18
This is beautiful, and I love your art. We have lots of bats who sleep in our carport, and in spite of the mess they leave behind, they are marvelous creatures. A fitting and lovely poem.
Ashe


TRUMP AND HIS LIKE! (addishans & changes - Including The Titale)

2018-02-18
He's not going to stop anything that brings him money. The man couldn't care less for his country or its people. It's all about how much money he can get out of the office. I wish I understood the people who voted for him, even if he lied to them as well, many still defend him. I am beyond any understanding any of this. It's all plain evil.
Ashe


A Suggestion

2018-02-18
A very enticing suggestion, I am sure.
Ashe


Thaw

2018-02-18
A spark of warmth in the dead of winter. Who wouldn't want that? Very nice poem.
Ashe

Each image so beautiful.and inspiring.

JUST ONE MORE TO ADD!

2018-02-17
I feel a tremendous sorrow for those people who have lost their children and loved ones by these unnecessary shootings.
All other countries seem to have gun laws that could prevent this but the U.S. There, the NRA rules with their money that seems to be more important than the lives of innocent children.
I am still distraught beyond grief for what is happening to the country in general, which happens to be where I come from even if I don't live there anymore.
Ashe


Blues in The Morning

2018-02-17
I like it as a song, and I could hear you singing it. I think you are going to do all right as a songwriter. Yesterday was such a sad day that I found these lines very appropriate:
"Looked out my window and surveyed my neighbourhood
Well the sky was tinged with sorrow come and take my blues away"
Ashe


Taking Time

2018-02-16
There is no fuzziness in this theory since particles occupy well-defined positions in any given world. However, these positions vary from world to world, explaining why they appear to be in several places at once. Likewise, quantum communication of faraway particles something Albert Einstein called "spooky action at a distance" is actually due to interaction of nearby worlds, so this could indeed take a very long time, and what shall we do meantime? I like your poem.
Ashe.


Mrs Chicken

2018-02-16
Lol ... You always make me smile, and I agree that you better not slam that door if you don't like someone in the airplane.
:)) Swimming with the fishies I love, but I know it's not for everyone. Solid Earth is best.
Ashe


Forget About the Future

2018-02-16
Your poems can be so poetic and so tender. This is wistful and so very right. I love it.
Ashe


Milky Way

2018-02-16
There is nothing as humbling as a sky loaded with stars on a clear night when there are no lights around. The most beautiful sight I have ever seen. So well described!
Ashe


ANOTHER SCHOOL SHOOTING IN THE U S A!

2018-02-16
I think the U.S is heading very fast toward the dead bottom. This last shooting feels like there is no hope with the Republican Party in charge. It's all about the 1% and all the money they can make. I am despondent and so angry.
Ashe


The Nouveau Riche Versus the Impecunious Esthete

2018-02-15
There is a trend towards that type of ostentatious houses by the "nouveau riche." most of whom have made their money from working with the oil companies. At least, that seems to be the case here. They bring suitcases full of money and build million dollar houses that look like palaces, next to us "impecunious esthetes." :) Nice poem and amazing vocabulary!
Ashe :)


The Night Visitor

2018-02-15
It's the dream of the one you couldn't have, but I feel a real connection, a lasting love.
Ashe


REFUGEES! - NEITHER FISH NOR FOWL! (A work In Progres)

2018-02-15
Good words, Ken. Refugees are people who have left all behind to begin again. To talk with them brings tears to our eyes. Someday, it might be us, so let's welcome them and make them feel more at home as we would like it if it were us.
Ashe


The Kidder

2018-02-15
He spreads some smiles around, and that's a good thing. So much has been said about sexual harassment lately that men will start to be afraid to even talk to women and kid innocently with them. I like this.
Ashe


The Swing

2018-02-15
This is perfect and honest. I love it.

The Jungle?

2018-02-15
Not impossible, but getting harder to find. I love the sounds of the jungle and the sea. They are peaceful.
Ashe


Your Name

2018-02-15
Simply beautiful and uplifting, Tom.

The First Poem

2018-02-15
A poem filled with powerful emotions (sorry, I should have said that in my last post, but I re-read it and felt the strength of it.
Ashe


The First Poem

2018-02-15
I don't understand it all, but I get the feeling of it. A good poem.
Ashe


Opened Door

2018-02-15
Orion the Hunter is a good sign for tonight. I am too mad at my country to see straight, but your poem is a breath of fresh air.
Ashe


Valentine

2018-02-15
Happy Valentines Day, Larry. I am with you tonight, mad as hell after another school shooting and the hypocrisy of our politicians who are nothing but cowards hiding with their lobbyists and their money under the American flag, the toxic symbol of our country, as you so aptly say. We are all indeed a process, a part of this Earth we are trying so hard to destroy.
I hate the haters tonight, those who hate the poor and the immigrants and the people who are actually trying to make something of themselves because they have dreams instead of hate. Coward politicians who allow children to be shot to death and maimed in schools which should be safe places, just to cuddle up with the NRA and their millions in contributions. The country has lost its principles. I am with you. If violence is all they respond to, then let's give them what they understand and blow away their corporate rooms filled with the cowards hiding their money, offering thoughts and prayers to our dead children and their grieving parents. The politicians who are stuffing their pockets with money they are taking from the most vulnerable: the poor, the elderly and those who can't defend themselves. Shame! Shame on this entire administration of frauds. Take their big attack rifles into the boardrooms and fire at will which is what they approve of should happen to others. Get the NRA, the hypocrit Evangelicals. Bring on the rockets and the bombs they love and protect so much, but turn them against them. Yes, our processes will end, and others will take over. The rich and powerful always win, but let's shake them up. Let's take on all of Washington. I know I went on my own rant with the feelings this poem brought out in me and not all of it was what you meant to say, but I needed this tonight. Thank you.
Ashe

A Proximate Approximate

2018-02-13
Thank you for the dedication. Lawrence. A proximate approximate is sometimes the best we can do. A happy poem, I think. :)

Haley After Work

2018-02-11
hmm ... icy roads seem a bit dangerous for a ride, Tha park would be too cold. Is there a cafe nearby for some hot coffee, a snack, and conversation? Haley is such a pretty name.
Ashe


Both Sides Of Our Track

2018-02-11
This is very good! You have quite a way with words and rhymes. I am impressed. Dream on!
Ashe


Trying to

2018-02-11
Ok, it's a try. But you write such good poems on free verse. :)

I always thought a Haiku had to follow the formula:
5 syllables on the first line
7 syllables on the second
5 syllables on the last line.

I think that's probably not true of all haikus, but it might help when putting one together.

Ashe :)


Suspended Animation

2018-02-10
Your last stanza makes one think about a time when life is appreciated for just what it is. The poem is all peace and contentment. A real beauty.
Ashe


Chicken Little's Clan

2018-02-10
I love this and I will agree with chicken little any day. People who are always telling me to be happy and not worry about anything and to look at the happy side get on my nerves. I know, I am a pessimist and I like it that way. What is there to be happy about these days? While I am writing this under the most beautiful blue sky and sunshine with an ocean breeze blowing my hair ... hmmm ... It is beautiful today, but I always worry about the future and what is happening to those less fortunate than I am and about our government and the wars and all the people who are dying everywhere for preventable reasons, about medical care that is not available or affordable .....


Walking the Dog

2018-02-10
Anyone who believes and is concerned with the demise of our planet is someone I will pay attention to his poems. Enjoyed this!
Ashe


The Trouble With Time

2018-02-10
Excellent poem about what we all wonder about. Where does time disappear? What seems to have happened just a week ago, turn out it was really several months ago. :)
Ashe


Tomorrow

2018-02-09
Sleepless nights are full of woe. Please hurry up and let the sun rise. I like very much how you have expressed the feelings of a night that seemed to never end. It brings the reader into the mood.
Ashe


From Sun God to Sun Worshipper

2018-02-09
You have written the perfect progression of the mind during those years. I think we can all relate to these words. I can't wait for the changes that follow at 30, and 40 and ahead. Our perspective changes with time. A very clever and well-written poem.
Ashe
