A Valentine, Perhaps

2022-03-07
What a fine and witty verse! Like a courtly Elizabethan sonnet, the poem is less to glorify the lady than to display the poet's wit!

Happy Halloween everyone by Ann Wood

Halloween as an element of world culture?! An interesting and slightly spooky thought...


THATS THE RUB

2020-10-30
It would be consoling to believe there is a Grand Scheme in which the world's current fascist mood has its place.


A Near Fatal Disaster

2020-10-19
Gets to the essence of "catness"!


THE NEW ORDER IS DISORDER

An order devoted to disorder: this nicely captures our plight...


leaves

2020-10-19
Let us all remain children--in some ways at least, certainly including autumnal joy in leaves!

Fine write, Peter!

This brings the geography to life! I especially like the chocolate similes. Well done!


to be determined

2019-06-21
And now, day by day, we shall have less of day...

Clever conclusion!

Fine write, breathing new life into an old story!

Whitney #2

2018-11-27
Sun/moon, heart/soul: well played, and oh so romantic.


Singing stillness

2018-11-27
"Boundless is the core": a brilliant close!

A pleasant surprise ending: I should have guessed it!


DEPRESSION - AND THE POET!

2018-11-27
All emotions are grist for the mill of poetry: good one!

Hauntingly romantic. If only others would feel as we want them too! Or maybe not...

2018-11-23
Always a good laugh! Thanks!


THE KIDS OF FLORIDA!

2018-02-22
I like the "beat" of this march--and of this poem!


THEM! (A Responce Work) - ((Now With Adishannal Lines))

2018-01-29
A timely, much-needed scream! (I can't help but think of the 1950's sci-fi classic "Them!" about giant spiders.)


Walking the Dog

2018-01-04
For me at least, the astronomical details bring this to life.


The Kiss of Torment

2017-12-28
A sad but timely warning!


POETS AND POETRY!

2017-12-28
So the only way to go wrong writing a poem is not to write it, for fear of what others will think?! Intriguing!


Done, and Cannot be Undone

2017-12-10
"Recommends"?! Intriguing little poem.

Nice to see a formal verse; well done!

2017-12-06
Indeed!


HOW FAR BACK ARE WE GOING TOO?!

2017-11-15
Our so-called president assures us that smart people pay no taxes. We pay only because we are stupid. What a sterling example! What a true patriot!


our nature

2017-11-11
By night, the splendors of love; by day, nothing clouds and crickets: I hate when that happens! And both happening to linger on the same chilly beach seemed so promising!


Where am I?

2017-11-06
I like the brevity and careful word choice, especially the spare, off-balanced rhymes. Actually, the subtle, back-stepping rhyme scheme is blowing my mind the more I study it. BRAVO!

Being lost is much more pleasant in poetry than in reality.


Borderline

2017-10-18
"A watched pot never boils," and the hands of a watched clock scarcely move. What an effective evocation of serious boredom!


Brain Putters

2017-10-18
Which goes to show that "silliness" can be both evocative and provocative!!


I still feel you

2017-10-08
What a wonderful, moving poem this is! Our own happiness as the last, best gift we can give is an insight as striking as profound.


I am your Wave you are My Shore

2017-09-08
This is so pathetically true to the romantic heart of a man!
