no art in mourning

A very poignant and heart-felt poem. Even in sadness there is beauty in your words.

Learning love lessons along the way.


ON THE FASE OF IT!

2017-10-21
Caring is a great source of unity. I love this.


Without Limit

2017-10-21
You have a beautiful poetic voice.


The Lonely Pines weep

2017-10-21
This is a beautiful poem. I love the message and the sound of it.


split

2017-10-21
Here we are battling ourselves, the two in one of us. I suppose there's a purpose of the two sided coin, the ying and the yang, the good and the evil. There's the balance...the place we walk...on the edge of the coin I suppose. Not all good. Not all bad. We cannot kill one without killing the other. Learning to live with imperfection is a good thing. It helps us in all our relationships, even our relationship with self. Very thought provoking as is your style.


Broken Love

2017-10-21
So sad, but so true, in so many lives. I have found with mental abuse, physical is not far behind. There's a very thin and obscure line between them. Poetry like this helps heal wounds and opens doors for discussion of this kind of abuse. Thanks for posting, Helen.


Reading Devkota in a Cowshed

Bibek, I am loving this. I find myself seeking you out. I so enjoy reading you. Wonderful, amazing, delightful reading for sure!


THE SAD LONLY PINE TREE!

2017-10-21
I love trees. Trees have a wisdom about them, especially the old growth trees, tall and wide. They seem to see and know so much. There's a sadness about your poem. We all need to plant more and more trees. They do so much for us and our earth.


E V I L - and you ?

2017-10-21
We are not called to forgive the actions but the person.


A love lost

2017-10-19
There is so much sadness and heaviness of heart. I feel the weight of it in your words.


Can't Blame Them

2017-10-19
Helen, I really enjoyed all the vivid imagery you created. I felt the heaviness of that day, heard those geese, and then laughed with relief. Well done!


Faithful Puppy Dogs

2017-10-19
Your insight into who we are as people is true. We carry the possibility of both evil and good within us. Puppies, on the other hand, are innocent through and through, just like infants. I believe we can see the truest nature of people by how they treat children, dogs, and old folks. The last line of your poem is so very profound.


Now we are sixty-six (with apologies to Christopher Robin)

2017-10-19
This is delightful! Thank you for sharing your birthday with us. Happy 66 Birthday, Chris! :D xo


scar

This is so intimate, so softly irresistible, that is caused my heart to flutter. Amazing.


The Way Time Goes

2017-10-18
Each line is full of lessons. Every thought a puzzle into one's own mind. This could be taken as lighthearted but I see it as profound. Vivid imagery with contemplation woven throughout.


Silverware

2017-10-18
Funny, good, stuff! Love it!


Man Cold

2017-10-18
A very clever rendering. Art is worth the suffering. Thank your wife. She's allowed you to endure all what ails you for the love of poetry. Now, write her a sonnet. :D


Max

2017-10-18
To Max, worthy of praise, poetry, and love! Faith, Hope, and Love and the greatest of these is Love. Above all is Love! Good Boy, Max!


Tanka the fourteenth

2017-10-18
Oh, the possibilities!


A Sonnet about Compatibility

2017-10-18
A sonnet of compatibility should make the poet proud for it makes me want to dance and sway when I hear it read out loud. :)


Nostalgia

2017-10-18
"Dragging my childhood all the way." I love that phrase. You have such a gift for drawing mind pictures, Bibek. A beautiful artist of words. Keep painting such lovely portraits, for they are windows into a world of ideas.


The Tubless Hunter

2017-10-18
Those short four lines sure evoke lots of imagery! Well done! :)


Enters Minnie Grace

2017-10-18
Minnie Grace, light in the darkness, sometimes is too bright for swollen eyes and broken hearts.

In your poetry, you find your way. There's beauty there even in the madness, sadness.


Grief

2017-10-18
Such horror. Such pain. All so alone without comfort and certainty. When the world falls apart, who is left to pick up the pieces? Deeply moving and oh, so sad.


Haiku for Ophelia

2017-10-17
such turmoil. such sadness.


Tanka the ninth

2017-10-17
Such a sweet visual.


Tanka the tenth

2017-10-17
The silence is deafening.


Tanka the eleventh

2017-10-17
This is very sweet. Makes a girl giggle.


Tanka the Twelfth

2017-10-17
Extremely clever!


Spoiled Water

2017-10-17
four lines= creating such powerful images welling up a tide of heavy burdens and responsibility


Good Sport

It's great to have a good and handy flashlight. Durable, just like the battery. :)


Cycling Thoughts at Night

2017-10-17
Oh my gosh! Bless your heart. That lovely mind of yours. I can laugh only because I've done such a things as this. Not the math but the obsession. Well, maybe the figuring. Truly, I enjoyed this trip. :)


Tanka the Thirteenth

2017-10-16
This is very precious.


The Hanging of Mary

2017-10-16
Thanks for writing about this. I pray, hope, and have faith that nearly 100 years later mankind has learned to treat our animals better, to treat them with honor and respect. Sad are those who treat animals thus so for I fear they would treat humans the same if given the chance. Bullies will bully no matter what the species.


Port Angeles

2017-10-16
So much weight, the heaviness, all so vivid. The swirling depth of emotion pulls down and sinks in the sand. Powerful imagery. It is an experience-- tactical, emotional, poetic.


BETER LATE THAN NEVER!

2017-10-15
I've found that our experiences are best had when we least expect them. We appreciate and learn more from them, especially when we are older and wiser.


The Ticket Agent's Query

2017-10-15
This is so somber, quiet, still that I can barely write upon it. You've drawn up such images and emotions within me. This is a powerfully profound poem.


ocean and 18th

2017-10-15
I just didn't want it to stop. I was traveling along with you, meeting, observing these you brought us and their surrounding events and lives. I've been there and saw them but never knew them as well until now. Thank you.


Tuffies

2017-10-15
This is so much fun, Helen. I enjoyed getting the full picture as it all came together. :)

Honesty is always the perfect place to start. Writing honestly is not always easy. However, it is worth whatever may come because the truth will never change. Continue to write from the heart Sameen. Your truest self will rise to the top and you will find your freedom. After that, it's all you! :)


Tanka the first

2017-09-20
Hello, Sameen! It's nice to see you're back.
Very nicely done. I really enjoyed this. :)

These are always thought provoking. What comes to mind in response is, "FAITH." It is left to that until it is not. :)


The Meat God

2017-09-19
The Meat God is quite a read for sure! Vivid and vibrant images throughout along with a cross of Stephen King and Alfred Hitchcock mind games made this short story extremely intriguing. Well done, Bibek!


I Went Down to the Highway, Mother

2017-09-17
You captured the sadness in the loss so well. There is a loss of small community literally and figuratively. We are being swept up into something so big and loud that we may soon lose ourselves. This speaks to me. Thanks Dave.


Thamel

Bibek, truly I am loving your work. This is marvelous.


I know my hands

2017-09-17
This is wonderful. Every line is enthralling.
