Le meilleur sentiment au monde

The beauty of the French language. Yes.

Some powerful and vivid imagery in this poem. I like several of the similes: the freaks in a carnival, the guilty mime.


Two to God.

2017-08-10
This is quite good. Brava!

Supremely accomplished poem, sure-handed, fluent, vigorous. Thank you for posting it.


Unknown Talent

Very good poem.


Consumption

This poem is a beautiful solemnity.


Headin' Out

Every line of this poem contributes something new. Well done!


furry philosophers (tanka)

2017-07-25
oh, that's wonderful!


arcturus

Ooh ... reminds me of W. C. Williams' "El Hombre," and I intend that as a deep, deep compliment. Thank you for posting this!


First cup of tea.

2017-07-23
Good thoughts! Thanks! I especially like the phrase "flares of life."

(Now for my second cup of pre-dawn coffee....)


George Strait To My Heart (A love letter)

Bravissima! And thanks for the smiles.

Poignant and potent. And true.


New text, old message

2017-07-19
Oh, that's quite good.


Never Rely

2017-07-19
I like this one very much. (Aside: One of the things I like about the Mayor of Boston is his apparent inability or disinclination to smile.)


Singer Songwriters

2017-07-17
Oh, I like this immensely. Especially since all these wonderful singer/songwriters were being played on the radio as I was coming into consciousness, as a wee tot of three or four. The work of these fine balladeers were among the first "poems" that I ever heard!


derelict still with night

2017-07-08
Your poems take the reader to so many wonderful places, places whose slightly surreal soundscapes linger in the memory for several infinities afterwards. I love "ale in a goblet of dreams." Yes, bravo!


Strange Weather Logic

2017-07-08
The weather forecasters in this part of the world have begun referring to "scattered showers" as "a few spritzes of precip." Count me as a vote in favour of the plainer, more homely terms!


Misunderstandings

2017-06-30
Ashe, you may have inspired me! I may have to write something on the same theme. Wasn't it Saint-Exupery's Little Prince who said "language is the source of misunderstandings"?


night

2017-06-30
I like the diminuendo of the lines.


Iíve seen generation after generation

2017-06-29
I love the viper-heron-taxman stanza especially.


Holiday

2017-06-25
A shining dewdrop of happiness!


The Loves We Bury

2017-06-25
Very secure and finely-made poem, and the repetitions are highly effective. Brava!


The art of flying

2017-06-23
Many lovely images in this poem -- although a phrase like "the essence of existence" may be a mite too abstract.


TO ALL MY FREINDS ON POETBAY

Thank you, Ken, for always rallying us, rousing us, stirring us, and encouraging us! Peace and light.

Marvellously specific, beautifully detailed.

This made me smile. Thank you, Dave!

The images startle pleasantly! Very good poem.


From a Chair on the Deck

2017-06-19
Beautiful. Well done!


Infinity

2017-06-17
I cherish especially the second half & the last image of a blind bird. Brava!

2017-06-15
Welcome!


Dinner Stop

2017-06-15
I concur: a beautiful reminiscence, nicely detailed and chronicled. This reader is grateful!


To Live

2017-06-14
Yes, beautiful in its nuance and skilful in its articulation, as always. Thank you for this poem.


there are meters running

2017-06-12
I find these lines ineffably beautiful:

wise men pick darkness
from boughs
heavy with the coming of night

Beautiful and strange and new. Thank you.


Light on Light Off

2017-06-12
Keenly observed and beautifully articulated. And the repetitions work well. Nice job!

I like this poem very much.


Alone

2017-05-31
Ingenious and wry!


My Haunting Past

2017-05-28
This poem has a strong beginning. The words in the first three lines especially. Definite, short, sharp, immediate.


Carry On Absently

2017-05-26
Ha!


The Snore

2017-05-25
I like it too: the rocking tonsils, the hives of wasps, the face like sour cream. Bravo!


Our holiday at the sea side day five by Ann Wood

2017-05-25
I cherish the beautiful details of this memory: honey cake from the Polish shop; paella; watermelon and the cup of tea. Thank you for sharing it with us!


A MAN A WOMAN BOTH WEEPING - MANCHESTER (ADDISHANS)

2017-05-25

I'd like to echo those wishes for good health. And also, the praise for your poems, which I am always glad to have read.


Green girls

The title intrigued me! I like the poem's effort to incorporate scientific language -- sometimes we don't think of the vocabularies of science as especially poetic, but they can spark the imagination every bit as much as the moon in June!

Thank you for sharing this poem.
