I enjoyed reading this, Sandy.

Quite a delicate and sensual poem with a well developed metaphor, I like the way it unfolds, coming full circle with the last stanza and its touching ending.

Lovely imagery, each adding to the metaphor; loved the lines

'At thirty-six, I know my anatomy,
bare my stigma towards the sun.
My dress may fall when I blink.
Deep violet will show as time

on the curl of my petals.'

wonderful reading as always, hunni

You'll Have To Think For Both Of Us, Now. Can You Do That, Richard?

2006-07-27
This is a brilliant piece of story telling, the fact that it's true makes it even more of an already compelling read.

You are a genius and a fine storyteller. I loved every line of this

'but he zigs when i zag and unties my logic'

images like that are fab

(as are you)

Death Of A Warrior

2006-07-17
good metaphor and description, your style alludes to poets like Rimbaud and Baudelaire; good to see that re-invented and reworked.


Vulture

2006-07-17
This is a fine poem. I like your imagination, your imagery is strong and the last stanza is brill.


Hope a good thing is not ruined.

2006-07-16
sorry for the additional 'has'


Hope a good thing is not ruined.

2006-07-16
This is a good poem, Liz but the title has sounds a little awkward, surely you meant to say

'Hope a good thing isn't ruined' ?


Little World

I think we all feel like that sometimes. Life can be so stressful sometimes, we just need to escape.

Lovely write


Light at the End of the Tunnel!

2006-07-14
You have some good ideas here but the subject matter (like the title) is a little cliched.

The metaphors of light and darkness have become so overused that there isn't anything original left in them.


PROUD TURD!!

When the Spinster Mocks the Bachelor

2006-06-20
I enjoyed reading this, but don't get one thing: the simile you used in the line

'twinkling like the brining vouch of the air'

doesn't make much sense. I'm a little confused by this

Fantabalousa!

Your alliteration and sparkling imagery makes this leap off the page. The children will love this. Makes me want to be a kid again


Osiers of the Moon

2006-06-15
I enjoyed reading this but don't get a couple of things:

1) The title: I don't understand how the title relates to the poem. I looked up the word 'osiers' and the dictionary said it was willow branches, as well as meaning trees that belonged to the willow family.

In your opening stanza are you refering to the willows?

2) I'm confused by this:

'To feel the grills of the moon'

What do you mean by this?

I love the alliteration in this, Kathy. Your bright and colourful imagery leapt out in every line. Neato.

Must you be such an ignorant kid?

Swearing, racism, homophobia does not exactly make you respectable

If you want to join the KKK, go ahead. I'll be here with wisdom if you need some.
