We want to disconnect from people and the world because we are overwhelmed with society's ills and when we do, somehow we disconnect for ourselves. I guess we are made to commune with one another. Perhaps we should regulate how, who, when, where, and why we do this.

Your poetry is very good. I enjoyed it. It is very thought provoking.


It's All the Rage

Powerful, intense imagery and emotions. Captivating poetry.


I think I’m...

2019-04-02
Yep! It's all true. Gravity sure does a number on the body. I'm still trying to figure out how I am my mother's age. When did that happen?


Amazing Ant

You were thoughtful. A woman must weigh her choices and make a thoughtful decision based on a thorough investigation into her options and the repercussions of her choices. You did that. Too bad the ant didn't have your options. If he had, you might have been crushed. So, you defended your home.
Well done in battle and in poetry. :)


Fatal Trip

Yes, I understand. Your every word is honest and valuable. The truth of abuse in all its forms is that it destroys. However, sometimes there can be rebirth and freedom. Artistic expression is a creative way to help heal.

I hope she sends you some more bones. Maybe she'll bring them herself and increase your allotment. :)


1st of April is day of humor , people make jokes between each other by Ann Wood

2019-04-02
Thank you for sharing some information about the culture and tradition of Gabrovo, Bulgaria regarding its April 1 festival. It sounds like a beautiful, fun place to visit. I didn't know that April Fools day was such a big tradition in other parts of the world. Perhaps I should do some research on it and find out where the tradition started. I just never gave it much thought. You have inspired me to do so. I enjoyed your story.


Late March

Your poetry is beautiful and honest.

Our Father's love and grace, His creativity and His mercy, all have worked together in making you in His own image. Every aspect of this poem is because of your thinking about God and His thinking about you.

Sincerely,
kathy

I have everything by Ann Wood

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. :)

MIND IDLE? - NOT LIKELY!

2019-01-22
I’ve 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.
