trained weariness

Cleverly put.


Prairie Grass

2022-09-29
So beautiful. Like the opening of a meaningful movie.


Unsettled

2022-09-29
Simply beautiful and deeply elegant. :)


Coffee in Milwaukee

2022-09-27
Great fun. A good coffee party as opposed to a tea party. That is what is needed. :)


hands off that snooze button!

2022-09-27
An evangelical march through the industrial decay. Reminds me of Slim Pickings riding on the bomb at the end of Dr Strangelove. Embrace the inevitable. Masterfully captured.


THE SAFETY OF THE PINE FOREST

2022-07-26
This is really brilliant. The juxtaposition of the falling cones and broken heart works so well. I know quite a few ladies under that tree.


Dark night of the Soul

2022-07-26
This is really good and very deep indeed. Only a lifetime of experience could produce it.


3rd

Bronze is good Mick. If you scrub it enough it kinda looks like gold.


Ballad of Billy McGee

2022-05-17
Sad but reflective of many of the "stolen generation". We can only imagine the mental scars that we have given them. I did a quick search on google to find out more about him, but all I found out more about was you. :)


THE FEW FROM OH SO MANY

2022-05-17
All poets ask that question of their work. I think Lawrence Beck said it best in his comment "All you can do is write to please yourself." But your eloquence surely puts you in contention.


Taking Control

2022-05-04
I missed this one. It is always hard to meditate in modern life. You describe how to do it well. I wish I still could.


What's That About?

2022-05-03
I am incredibly unoffended by this piece. :)


WHEN WRITEING

2022-05-03
Exactly how I feel Ken. One of the reasons I delete a lot of my work.


The River

2022-05-03
A very deep analogy. As rivers often are.


I STILL FEEL THE RAIN

2022-05-02
All poets feel the rain. But writing does help a smidgen.


Here Endeth the Lesson

2022-05-02
What wonderful fun! I love the word play. Zero Mostel was such a great comedic actor, thanks for making me smile Uncle.


ON THE ROAD

2022-04-20
Wise words from sage Ken. :)


Special

2022-04-20
The old silent treatment. I know it well.


Workshop at the Library

2022-04-20
Sounds like fun. And also inspiring.


in domum

2022-03-14
Brief but so accurate. I think you are right. Because of all that is happening around us existentialism is all we have now. I will mention you the next time I play poker with Satre and Nietzsche.


WAR IS NOT IN BLACK & WHITE (Additans)

2022-03-10
Yes, it is very sad Ken. Well said.


A Wish Growing Stronger by the Day

2022-03-10
You convey the tired urgency of your situation with this so well.
It must be so hard for you. Gentle hugs my friend.


UKRAINE IN DISTAIN

2022-03-07
You have described well how so many people seem to think about the situation.


BROTHEL CREEPERS

2022-03-04
Good one! :)


Ramblings 584

2022-03-01
I know the feeling. It makes you question your worth. Being ignored personally and professionally does your head in. Makes you wonder why you bother. Hugs my friend.


Homeless Innovation

2022-02-26
Great rhymes and narrative Joe. My experience is the same as FM's, homeless people are very intelligent and often professionals who are disillusioned with society. It is so good that you are helping them.


true tales

2021-11-21
Life is a movie. The credits run towards the end when you realize some people had bigger parts than you thought. I love the analogy. Don't let it go before the end.


The Only Eagerness Left

2021-10-27
I feel quite similar my dear friend. Hugs.


too real to fake it

2021-10-18
I am so glad I did not miss this gem. And I love seeing the fourth wall smashed. :)


Summer's Fading

2021-10-01
Even though it is sparing in life you describe it beautifully. Grandpas whiskers made me smile. :)


warmth

2021-09-29
A wonderful string of poems. I too am "alone when not alone".


NOBODY

2021-08-20
I like the change of rhyme. We are all nobody until somebody loves us (as the song says).


A Dark Day

2021-08-10
I love minimalist poetry and this is so interesting. I hope opaque does not triumph for too long.


Dad

2021-08-10
Heartfelt and so well expressed. We all have regrets unfortunately.


Sunday Morning Apathy

2021-08-10
I can feel it in each word. Cold coffee sucks, I always forget I have made it and have to warm it up in the microwave. You captured the feeling well Joe.


In the Heat of Summer

2021-08-07
So beautiful. It is like a bright painting. And the ending was superb. Can I come and live where you are? lol


The Listener

2021-08-05
Don't be too hard on yourself. That is modern life. We turn off to others expressing their feeling. it was nice that you wrote this in his honour.


The pathless path

2021-08-01
Yes, and it is freeing in a way.


Stygma

2021-08-01
Exactly how I feel at the moment.


scale

2021-07-28
It sounds wonderful. How could life there not be grand? You convey so much in a small piece. Bright blue doors always look great on very old houses.


Shadow Kingdom

2021-07-28
Nicely done. It flows so well.


Eyes

2021-07-28
The eyes have it. The last one is so sad. Interesting form. I particularly liked "Your impassioned eyes hold my breathless self in loving thrall".


Finding peace in silent ease

2021-07-28
Calming words indeed.


There's calmness in that waking hour

2021-07-28
Not sure if I like the form but this was a nice. I like that time when you first wake up and are feeling reasonably okay. It doesn't last long though.


Freedom Should You Dare

2021-07-26
The harsh freedom of the sea. They asked John Lennon if he would "take it all back" and he said "“if I could be a (beeping) fisherman I would". Nicely explained Joe.


IF ONLY SABINA HAD BEEN PASSING BY

2021-07-26
Sounds like they needed that singer. Nice story Ken.


Contretemps

2021-07-25
This is unfortunately often true. Nicely described.


The Zen Public Servant

2021-07-24
I think you have definitely spotted a member of the servante publicaus family. Although these days their plumage is a bit different. The cracked shoes made me smile.


Ramblings 568

2021-07-24
Hugs my friend. Yes, it is often those we hold dear that cause the most stress.


Beware the Lord Skye

2021-07-24
I enjoyed this. The rhymes are great. Right up to the last one which finishes it off nicely.
