Thank you!


My Work

This reminds me of "chop wood, carry water" both before and after enlightenment. Who knows what our work is, is it writing, or is it helping others, or even raking leaves or doing the dishes? Neat poem, Thomas.


Brick Road

This is an amazing poem! I physically felt the stepping back and then the tentative building of a road to the future.

Since you are just sharing a link to the original text I think it is OK to have a share bar.

On a different note:
Are the numbers of readers of our poems accurate? I find it hard to believe that many people have read my poems! Or that each poem has been read that many times!

Goodbye, Anoop!

First, We Take Manhattan

2009-02-26
Part of one of my favorite songs by Leonard Cohen (I like the Bono version), Hallelujah:


Your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you
She tied you to a kitchen chair
She broke your throne, and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah


The Shake-Triolet Challenge

I really like this, especially since it is not an obvious poem. Not in the right meter either, another reason to like it.

So happy you found Poetbay. I hope you like it here. Boy, you summed up April Fool's Day with this poem, didn't you. I didn't pull any pranks this year, I didn't have the heart. Well, maybe one little one. LOL

The Road Not Taken ~Aaron Style~

I like this poem. It has a lot more texture than Frost's poem, if I dare to compare the two. Good job!

I liked the use of winter as a symbol for , a lost love type thing. This is very good, subtle, and moving.

You are my Friend

This is a good poem. I like it that the last line is an almost Indian saying, it made me rethink the rest of the poem.
