I have everything by Ann Wood

2019-02-04
Contentment is peaceful and peacefulness, contentment. Both of these are worth seeking. Your poem brought this to mind. Thanks for sharing.


My First Few Words

2019-02-04
Thanks for the trip. I enjoyed every word and all the scenery. It was all so lovely.


To Myself 20 Years Ago

2019-02-04
Even in the harsh darkness you saw hope, by the 8th stanza,
"There must have been...," is where I see the light of hope shining through. And after that, all the beautiful gratitude comes pouring through.

As I read this again, it reminds me of the Psalms where David so often starts out lamenting about his circumstances or asking God where or why or when God was going to help him. As the psalm goes on, David comes to realize that God is ever-present and always benevolent, so he praises Him, worships Him, thanks Him.

Your last stanza says everything:

"Thank the Light
which overthrows the darkness
and brings a new day
to a sweet and painful birth."


Listless

2019-02-04
This poem is full of what seems to be unconvoluted words from a convoluted mind. It twists my thoughts with its intricate wrapping of wordplay. I follow it, gladly. :)

Youíre a very clever poet, but youíre not old. I especially like the third stanza. It asks and answers the ďWhyĒ regarding power.
I really enjoyed this. Itís fun and itís thought provoking.


The Cormorant

2019-01-23
This is a beautiful word painting. The images are so vivid as is the emotion...The art of poetry.


MIND IDLE? - NOT LIKELY!

2019-01-22
Iíve never thought you idle! My mind imagines your mind like a beehive full of busy bees.
And of course, the bees are prejudice for their own honey, as they produce it.
:)


A Necklace Full of Skulls

I enjoyed the reading and appreciate the clarifications.


Fading

2019-01-22
Thereís so much life and living in words. Thank goodness for that! Your talent for creating life with the written word or the ability to verbally tell a yarn breathes freshness into the air.
The images evoke sadness in dying away. However, your ability to capture and relay is delightful.
I hope I make sense.
I love this poem.

Thereís so much truth in this sweet charmer, you had me laughing at myself. I think I must be half baked, a bit undone. Your poem, however, is delicious.


The Twilight Roller-coaster

2019-01-09
I can't stop reading this. I think I'm on the Twilight Roller-coaster and it's taking me on a thrill trip around, over, and through all the aspects of this awesome poem. I read it silently. I read it out loud. I get all these ideas and pictures and boom! I'm on it again! I love the word "cassareep" now, a word I never knew existed before. Now I'm all involved in what it is and how it sounds. Well you have my head spinning. I'll get back in line so I can take another ride. :)
thanks!

poetry comes from the heart and home is where the heart is

2019-01-05
I really enjoyed this Aidan. You had me thinking and reflecting on so many different parts of my life. Your poetry caused me to delve into myself and took me out of this world for awhile.
Well done. Thank you for sharing.

Loneliness

2018-12-30
Iím caught up in this scene and eager to know more. I want to know who or what is at that door. Thereís a world youíve created behind that door. Please, open the door, and let her (and us)see the possibilities of answering the call. Itís yours to create. :)


Whatever

Very clever! Just ran across this. Itís just all pouring out and pooling at the bottom of the page. Ha! Cool!
