They're Rioting? Good!

I second Coo & Co. The closure is well-written.


but he's pro-life!

2020-06-02
An apt portrait of the orange emperor. Nicely done, Tom. :)


How are your lockdown days?

2020-06-02
Boredom reigns over our lives this lockdown. Well-writ, Matthew. :)


Gratitude

2020-05-30
Blessed to be a part of such vibrant community of online poets. Been here for 4 years already and still feels like only yesterday! Meantime, I've learned so much from fellow poets and mentors. Always grateful for that. Peace & light to you too, Tom. :)


Evensong

2020-05-30
I like the motley crew of sound imagery: birds of all kinds cheeping and singing. Nicely done!


Come Off It Already

2020-05-30
The classic head vs. heart dichotomy! I love the cheery and playful nature of the poem.


Centennial Ode

2020-05-30
Funny, whimsical, and sweet. A playful tribute to your favorite poet. Enjoyed reading it, Tom. :)


streams

2020-05-30
I'm in awe with the smooth flow of the poem, the gentle and unhurried progression of the narrative. Loved every bit of it!


push

2020-05-30
The simple act of eating breakfast metamorphoses into a prayer, a benediction for difficult times. I read this one over and over, and felt better. :)


The One Thing This Wasteland Had Over the Emerald City is Gone

2020-05-30
This poem has more of a universal appeal. Although set in Kansas (prairies, I guess), it rings true for every other person living around the globe. As with the US, the glittering effect of the emerald city is fading elsewhere too. I can relate to the sentiment.


Fifteen Mays Later...

2020-05-30
Yay! That's such a great news. Happy 15th anniversary to Poetaby. I've been here for the last four years, and I've had the opportunity of learning so much. Thank you for all the support and inspiration.

Haiku for a parched gardener

2020-05-26
Beautiful. Haiku at its best.


1991

2020-05-26
I read it as a "poem of growth"--like a poetic bildungsroman--of the poet. And the form adds more to the poem.


Totems

2020-05-26
We sometimes grow too fond of the keepsakes, the old souvenirs, the junk. I can feel for the speaker's ambivalence in the poem. Nicely done, Larry.


Let's Go This Way

2020-05-26
Sweet, each better than the other.


You're Welcome

2020-05-26
I am not sure if "polygon" is a specific reference to the plague, but I like the visual elements of the poem--the cracking, crumbling, and collapsing of them.


fourth of five

2020-05-26
Getting busy in a meaningful way is key to well-being. Well-writ, Jim.


On the Midway

2020-05-24
Sweet and lovely. Nicely done, Larry.


Our Old Mistakes

2020-05-24
Rings true, just like an axiom.


There'll Be a Quiz Later

2020-05-17
This is beautiful. Black coffee/grey sunlight, cat and bees, the curvy barkeep, and ah---keats watching! The ending is a delight, almost a gentle reminder to all the poets out there! Nicely crafted, Tom.


friday evening at home

2020-05-17
Asking yes-no questions now might be a good idea. It does give one a sense of immediacy and purposefulness. It's a happy illusion, isn't it? But I can't picture how the world will look like (probably dark and dismal) at the end of this pandemic.


Superficial Reverence

2020-05-17
True words. Well-writ, Larry.


Perspective

2020-05-17
The other day I read that hunger kills more people than coronavirus every day. And, yes, that's a fact. Yet, this virus seems to be as dangerous as any world wars--with chances of relapse and lack of any medicine. Anyway, your "perspective" is also interesting!


What the Maid is Thinking

2020-05-17
A wry portrayal of the mistress. I like the small details you present to describe the mistress's habits and temperament.


green and blue

2020-05-17
*darkness surrounds us*

sorry for the typo.


green and blue

2020-05-17
Despite the fact that darkness surrounds you, I like the optimistic tone of the poem. The ending is hopeful: We do have the will to make the world a better place. :)


Vulnerable

2020-05-17
That's so true, Tom. Humans always build "barriers & barriers" while God finds a way to cut through them. Nicely done!


memories of a summer love

2020-05-10
Sensual. Sweet. Seductive. And so very beautiful too!


Sonnet

2020-05-10
This form also suits you well. I equally love your formal and free verse. You're a versatile poet indeed!


For the PoetBay Poets

2020-05-10
A sharp lampoon! I wonder about such "poets." But real poetry comes from the "work-soiled fingers" that weave loneliness, fear, and anxiety. You know that already. ;)


THE WAITING GAME

2020-05-07
Absolutely, Ken. We all have been waiting.


Love in the Time of Coronavirus

2020-05-07
Love in the time of coronavirus is a dangerous thing. There are serious risks involved. The last three imperative sentences are powerful invocation.


Nursery Rhyme

2020-05-07
Sweet and cheery.


Round Three

2020-05-07
Quite possible, Larry. I can see all of this happening.


heaven or otherwise

2020-05-07
Honest, I think. But would that heaven be worth all the pain and suffering one has to go through?


Puttering Around the Kitchen at 3.56 am

2020-05-07
3.56 am, the time for puttering? Ha, the entire poem looks back at the process of writing poetry in such a jovial way. Love that!


Jottings of a Novice

2020-05-07
These sections read like prayers. I like benediction-like quality in this one.


No Longer Children

2020-05-07
There's a beautiful story beneath these lines. For the past week or two, I tried concentrating on writing fiction, but in vain. This one with its sparse details leaves so much room for readers to ponder and fill.


Missouri Valley, Iowa

2020-05-07
A forlorn portrayal of a forlorn valley. Nicely done, Larry.


You Know the Type

2020-04-29
Haha, this is the funniest poem I've read in a while. Thanks for writing this, Larry. I'm still chuckling!


black & white

2020-04-29
Beautiful. I like the dichotomies of black/white, young/stupid, and intimacy/not intimacy. However, I feel like I've read this before. Did you happen to repost it after some tweaking?


Chanteuse

2020-04-29
You're at your best when writing villanelles. You've mastered this tricky and demanding form. Bravo!


Sunset Symphony

2020-04-29
Beautiful, like a Vermeer painting.


Lockdown

2020-04-29
Quite picturesque and dynamic with all the fluttering, floating, and dropping movements. It captures a moment in time, which is what a good haiku should do. Bravo!


Poem for the Front Door

2020-04-25
Beautiful, as always. I read your poem three times, each time with an increasing "literary jealousy," which is an unrefined way of saying that your work is quite inspiring! Keep up the good work, Tom, and yes, someday it'll be safe out; for now, we are all locked in.


Ramblings 505

2020-04-25
Ha, right! Reminds me of some snooty professors from my college. They never appreciated the younger generation of writers.


Fever

2020-04-25
I can relate to it. At times, I'm seized by such a fever too!


My Inner Canon Lawyer Looks Askance at the Season of Spring

2020-04-25
In love with "hyacinth's passport / and the daffodil's documentation." Like the compare and contrast kind of thing between nature and commerce. And, of course, the subtle humor! Bravo!


dream time

2020-04-25
Beautiful and dreamlike. I'm listening to Frank Zappa as I type this.


Peering Out

2020-04-21
Sweet.
