The flower of life

2019-10-17
I enjoyed this, it made me reflect on the unconscious beauty of the world around us.


Therefore, an elderly woman should not be called as a witness by Ann Wood

2019-10-06
Oh! How true! An elderly woman says the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth! More than they want! The judge must have a lot to hide...
A very funny story.


Path by Ann Wood

2019-10-06
Wow, this is moving, it is a heartfelt comment on our lives here on this earth, the struggles, and finally, there is only the hope that it is not the end.

I admire you so much, to write in a foreign language, and still reveal the poet within you. I loved this very much, well done.


I'm shutting down for a while. Lost my creativity...gone looking for it.

2019-10-03
I have been missing all September, because I was overwhelmed with memories of loss which all seem to have occurred in September.

My thoughts are with you, and I sincerely hope to see you up and running again soon.

I have just published my first poem in over a month, about what life has felt like during that month or more.

Kindest wishes,
Marie Cadavieco


My Sister

2019-08-23
It must be hard to see a younger sibling getting all the babylove, I was the younger so I cannot imagine. I was glad to see she was accepted and loved, became 'part of you'. Very beautifully done!


the pink room

2019-08-21
There was so much gentleness, so much that was good, it was like a blow in the face, that last line.
Oh, the mistakes, the mistakes. If we can see them, not as a source of self reproach, but as opportunities to learn, then regret can be put away. Your poem really wormed its way into my heart. Well done.


Turning down the Queen...

2019-08-21
Love it! Yes! Nuuk er Nuuk - I MUST remember that... is Denmark in mourning for missing the opportunity to see THAT VERY SELF OPINIONATED PERSON in the flesh? I don't think so!


Making Greenland......

2019-08-20
Love it! And now, Denmark has offered to buy North America!
i enjoyed this.


#Truth

2019-08-20
Sometimes we have to face reality.
Nice poem.


Happy Birthday to my best friend and sister in heart KysaSweet by Ann Wood

2019-08-20
I am sure she will be overjoyed with this heartfelt greeting. Very nicely done.


I will go to Distance

2019-08-20
Lovely sentiments!


In the library

2019-08-20
Devastating feelings, being left alone by someone we care about. Nice write.


Life

2019-08-20
Ah! That is the secret! Keep tasting! I enjoyed reading this, brings home the fact that in reality, life does not slow down and stop, it just carries on, bringing new surprises, and we can travel along or get off, as we choose, until choice is taken away from us.

As Browning said (putting words into the mouth of Fra Lippo Lippi) "Oh, Oh! It makes me mad to see what men shall do, and we in our graves!"

When my mother had recovered from her third cancer (all primaries) at age 72, she said to me, I'm not dying yet, I'm too nosey, I don't want to miss anything! And went on another 8 years, when that last enemy took her by stealth.

Very enjoyable poem.


''Rage''

2019-08-20
Y s, love can be a fire, an earthquake... and when things go bad, it can blight the lives of not just those directly involved, but spreads like rings in the water.
I enjoyed reading this, though it evokes mixed feelings!


Backwards

2019-08-20
Oh, those dreams! If only we could decide what to dream about!
Well expressed, a good read.


SOMETIMES ALL WE HAVE

2019-08-18
How true. We do not have to be rich to enrich the lives of others. Nicely written.


Thoughts On Random Patterned Chaos

2019-08-17
It does sound all so pointless, spinning, spinning. Very well written.

It made me think of a little verse I read many years ago:

The Moon goes round and round the Earth:
Around the Sun we go.
We do not die of death, oh no.
We die of vertigo.


Patience

2019-08-17
Intriguing. There are so many qualities we should cultivate. Very well done,


Rainfall

2019-08-17
Sums up perfectly the ambivalent feelings we have towards rain!


Untitled

2019-08-17
I like to trawl through to find work I have somehow missed. I am so glad I did! The topic of greed which destroys not only the earth but other human beings less fortunate, spoke to me immediately, but then the transition from disgust and despair was sudden, enlightening, and encouraging. Strangely this is the second poem I have read today which speaks of Divine Light.


I don't want you to go

2019-08-17
Emotionally compelling, because we can all identify with your feelings.


THE TIMES ARE A CHANGEING - BY RETURNING!

2019-08-15
Ken, you are so right! It seems as if the world is turning back the clock to the bad old days, as you say, of fascism, the modern face thereof, which the impressionable young people swallow whole without question.

Well expressed!


T A U N T 'r

2019-08-15
Excellent. Straight to the point, hard hitting.

I think I know him.


DAMNED - poetry

2019-08-15
Looks as if you are stuck with being a writer and poet. I was up until 2 am writing stuff! A blessing and a curse!


Upstream

2019-08-12
I enjoyed the feel of this, it certainly does evoke the rhythmic movement of a boat as it encounters the resistance of the wind on the water, like the challenges of life.


Consider The Zebra

2019-08-10
Oh, this s funny, clever, and oh, so true. Edible complex - brilliant. Love it.


An Arduous Art

2019-08-09
And don't we just! I liked this. Summed up in so few words, the poet's struggle.


A mirror has two faces

2019-08-08
This hit the nail right on the head! You have illustrated beautifully the human condition. I enjoyed this.


My best shot

2019-08-07
I hope it's not goodbye. It can be disappointing when you write something and don't get feedback, often it is hard to express what a poem makes you feel, particularly when it really hits you between the eyes.

Keep on writing, it is something which a poet has to do to be happy!


Along Came a Precious Rose, So Fragile and Young

2019-08-04
This is so beautiful, I think anyone would love your 'Rose without thorns or thistles'. I feel sad, though, that the poet feels he has harmed her, he puts her on a pedestal, but it seems she is stronger than he thinks. Lovely poem.
- Marie


WORDS (Additions)

2019-08-02
Excellent. Possibly fewer words were needed....


Master of Drivel

2019-08-02
Well put! To quote a great philosopher - namely, my Spanish Spouse - we all see the fair through our own eyes.


WHEN WE FIRST MET

2019-08-02
Very well put, Ken! Sometimes you meet someone, you just 'click', and it feels so comfortable and natural. I especially appreciated 'we talked as like in an ongoing conversation" which says it all really.


There When

2019-07-31
All so true. Man's deep seated need to acknowledge something greater than him self brings out the very worst kinds of parasites. If there IS an ultimate truth, it will not be bought with donations to bogus causes. So well expressed! I love the "rotting woodwork of disappointment". It was very much how I felt at times. Bravo! - Marie


NEVER EVER

2019-07-29
Beautiful. This makes me think of Leonard Cohen.

- Marie


OVERBOARD

2019-07-28
How true. The world is run by those least suited to do so, whose only interest is holding onto power and protecting their own interests.

I like the style, the repetition of those three lines makes this like a song.
- Marie


A Friend of Mine

2019-07-27
What a lovely tribute to a friend. I hope she has seen it! Everybody should know how much they are appreciated!


Open Notebook Resting on a Porch Rail

2019-07-24
Sometimes it's good to look back. I found this gem. I love Haiku, and this one has that lovely twist at the end, of Nature ruffling the pages of your book, reading them! A lovely example. Thank you!

- Marie


Still skating

2019-07-24
Awwww how touching. A metaphor for life, one can say. I like the two contrasting visions. First, the young, dashing, confident man alongside his equally confident, young, willing mitten! (Were you smitten by the mitten?) And now, you still hold hands... skating in the parking lot. Holding hands is so intimate. I keep on reading this because I love it!


NOW WE HAVE THE MORROCCAN PLUME (CHANGE OF TITLE)

2019-07-23
A reminder of the wonderfully varied weather of Britain. I wouldn't fancy a Full English cooked on a pavement! Moroccan plume. Love it! Thanks for your take on it, Ken.

Strange that I was just thinking of a very cold winter this morning. December 1962 it snowed at Christmas and was bitterly cold. 🥶


Outdoor Concert

2019-07-20
Brilliant. Who needs more? The sounds of nature. The most relaxing and comforting sounds in the world. There is a feeling of serenity, in the short lines, which say just enough, no more. As you say: it is enough, this.

- Marie


GULLS RIGHT CLEVER BLIGHTERS (Addishanal Stanza) (Inspired By A Work By Marie Cadavieco)

2019-07-19
😂 I had my fish and chips stolen by gulls on Ilfracombe pier. Big cheeky devils.

The next day we were on the putting green and one pinched my golf ball. I was generously awarded a hole in one, though I am sure it was on a path to miss by a mile! Thank you, gull!

I am pleased that my poem inspired this trip into Gull Nightmare Land. Thank You!

-Marie


IN COMMON

2019-07-19
How very true. I just wrote something to that effect this morning on my FB page.

If the world were populated exclusively by poets, musicians and artists, I feel it would be a more peaceful place.

A thumbs up, for this one!

- Marie


Meeting the death by Ann Wood

2019-07-19
This is beautiful! I like the idea of giving the bread and water.

'Bright way, my friend!' Such a wonderful goodbye. This is such a positive and gentle poem about death.

Thank you!
- Marie.


Someday You and Me

2019-07-19
This is so poignant,there is so much sadness in loving someone who has given their heart to someone else, and despite having lost them,cannot let go.

Very beautiful.

- Marie


Thoughts on Another Night of Dread

2019-07-19
This is really so emotionally raw.
Only those who have lived with this can possibly imagine how it feels to lose total control of this bodily function, and have the stark reality, of how obnoxious human waste really is, thrust before them every single day of their lives.

My best friend at college had to have a permanent ileostomy due to very severe Crohn's disease, and it was a devastating experience for her.

You gave expressed this with lines of random length and shape which reflect the feeling you must have had, of a life out of control.

Thank you for having the strength and courage to publish this.


Ethereal

2019-07-15
How lovely, how wonderful to share and live your moment. Such visions live in the memory and no camera, no matter how sophisticated, could ever capture that picture. I like the short lines, brief as the moment they recreate.


The Heart

2019-07-08
"Be the stillness among the waves... the singing silence in the music of life" - how beautiful such a person will be, to bring joy and peace to those whose lives are touched by that person. What a beautiful poem.


Blue Moon

2019-07-08
No, never let a night like that slip away without acknowledgement. I feel that I have been sitting nearby, back against a tree, maybe, listening to you expounding on life, ladies and so on. What a wonderful carefree memory to share.


Capturing the Hearts & Minds

2019-06-08
So true. Even the young can see it, but their consumerism-washed brains still keep making the talentless machines super-rich through churning out more and more of the same.
This really struck a chord!
