Very, very nicely done.

I have an inkling the red head and I would get on well!


Slice of Life

I do a lot of running and I am familiar with the feeling of showering and being pleasantly sore. I think Lawrence Beck's poem about iron filings touched on this feeling to earlier. I sense a theme running through poetbay here. I like the clipped way you used your words here to for maximum effect. Any way a rest day affords me to indulge in poetry. Thankyou.


The Regrettable Existence of an Iron Filing

2017-02-11
Hello. I suppose I would be telling myself this. Iron filings are a breakaway from a solid piece of iron. They are unique in that they chose to be apart from the standard, and yet seek some kind of strange comfort from the magnet. As such, to berate oneself for needing comfort isn't pityful, merely a different groove to run your rollers along. The fact that it is out of your control is, I would say, admirable actually, that you continue to seek succour and the hundreds of other filings sitting up to attention, comrades in arms as the magnet pulls and pushes are shouting out one very simple truth..."This is just a different type of norm!"
Personally I could play with iron filings endlessly....then what does that say about me, in a tongue in cheek self absorbed lets talk about me now kind of way!
In short ( thanks heavens says all of poetbay) I like it.

In liking the feeling of despondency strangely.

2017-01-21
Oh my. This is something a bit special. Personally I think this reflects the mood on Inauguration Day. Bookmarked.


A skylark

2017-01-21
Thoroughly enjoyed this. I like how you used the bird as a carrier of your inner thoughts which had the effect of amplifying your emotions.

This makes the reader dig deep into their own experiences of life, of situations and people they have known. Thankyou. I agree this is no fragment.


Dog and Rose

2016-12-17
Mr Beck. I can't begin to tell you how splendid I think this is. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this, I like the way you use the dog and rose, heavens we've all been there. Top work.


Changing of the Season

Did I give permission to have my rusty old heart chords to be played so effectively? This really is lovely.

Head Over Heels

2016-10-20
This reminds me of Nina Simone's Wild is the Wind. Think it must be the mandolins.


The Poetess

2016-10-18
Ok you had me at...Such velocities are difficult to match. And by
I will wrestle with these thoughts for now, I think I was starting to crumble and then darn it by repetition you hammeted home

at best, my worst won't do~

I mean...leave me with some dignity!

little poem

Or the road gearing up to absorb the weary falling traveller
Or the traveller spitting road grit at a powerful little pebble

Love The Rain

Nice how you have encompassed memory into a weathery scene.


Why read this?

2016-08-19
I suppose you need to make poverty tangible, not just something we view from the comfort of our million mile removed armchairs


Compression

Rio.


What If?

2016-08-19
And on the horizon lay optimism
It tugged away at the thorny constraints
Of regret,
Of misgivings.
It opened a yellow brick road to..
To that brilliance
They call hope.

Sorry, not meaning to hijack your post. Sometimes it's easier to express how poems make me feel in prose, instead.


Regretful Arguments

2016-08-19
Oh dont they just! Liking this very much.


How you change things

2016-08-12
I just bet, its the tiniest if things about your sweetheart that you remember, not an overall image. Say, the way they blink, or the curl if their lips as they smile, or the rhythm of their walk or the lightness of their touch. Just saying...


calligraphy

2016-08-06
I see the calligraphy written by the hopping sparrow, oh that we could read its thoughts. I think it would be signed Brave Little Sparrow.


The trick is to keep looking

2016-08-06
Ooh a sneeky bit of people watching from the security of a seat in a secret cafe seems to have purged this write. Nicely done.

Sounds bliss. Would love to be in violet shadows right now


Love at some safe distance

2016-07-21
Whether it was intentional or not, this reminded me of several sermons while sitting in contemplation, gleaning what I could from Biblical verse at times of great change.
There is a quiet acceptance, gentle advice and a gradual realisation of those things you secretly knew, but had to complete the journey to realise.
Thankyou.


the facade

2016-07-21
Hi Kathy. You're right here, that which doesn't break us makes us. I like the effect created by selected letter spacing, makes the reader feel the breeze.

The number is 42 of course. Its the number that represents the answer to.life, the universe and everything.

According to one very famous book.


You're not depressed you're just a dick

2016-06-09
Oh yes! It is rude, but justly so. And I'm smiling a wry smile as I salute the idea of honest communication. I LOVE this. Great, " yeah," stop being such a %únker and leave me alone!!! ". Brilliant!


In or out ?

2016-06-09
Out.

2016-05-21
I love reading children's poems. They are unbridled by preconceptions and delightfully fresh. Well done Dsisy aged 9, I'm sure Robert Frost is smiling, somewhere.

That's a display of how inept my comments are for these victims
I have no words that could comfort.
