Lament of the leaning trees

2021-02-18
I adore everything about this poem.
I want to lean...No, I want to climb up in the pictured Leaning tree and lie on her trunk to stare into the shade of her bark as I get lost in the sounds and sheen of the lapping waters of the swelling lake.


I'll take the rap!

Tell Fernszy that this old female Yank appreciates poetry no matter the form, especially educational/cultural/historical rhythmic poetry. However, due to my lack of experience in Rap music, I will have to defer the oral reading of this to my 18 year old grandson. Heís much better at this than I. In the meantime, I will go on appreciating your fine selections of words, your clever rhymes, and of course the humor of it all. :)


SNOW & ICE - GONE

2021-02-18
In Central Florida, last Friday and Saturday my family was in the pool. Today, Wednesday, 17th of Feb., itís raining and much cooler. However, the scent of orange blossoms is in the air.
Your snow has been our rain and fog. I have noticed the greening up of the grass and palm trees. I suppose thatís a sign of Spring here.
Hereís to Spring!


The World Is Charged

Oh my, this poetry immediately created visions as beautiful as the tender emotions I experienced because of the world you designed with your words.

So very lovely.

What a powerful picture youíve created. The truth is both ugly and beautiful, strange and commonplace, dark and brilliant. The poetry is outstanding. Iím deeply touched by it all. Thank you for seeing what so many do not.

I can feel rhythm and visualize the pendulum swinging.
Waiting for relief.

I havenít visited for a very long while. Yours is the first I read.
Amazing how few words
Written just so
Create such emotion
Such a physical reaction

Thatís Poetry.

Thank you

Oh boy! This is truly a challenge!
The best part was reading your example poetry.
You had me laughing at nearly five thirty in the morning.
I really enjoyed this. Thanks, Thomas. :)

I love the fun of it. Your son set a great challenge and his mum met the challenge like a champ.

I love the hope in this poem. It opened up the windows and doors to let the fresh air in and the stale air out. My mind was alive with visions of life and love, friendship and kindness. It was a warm sunny. It was Springtime after a very dark, cold winter. Thank you.

I find most of the time, we get out of life what we put in to it.
Your poem tells of your ways, your kindness, your attitude.
I enjoy reading about your life encounters. Youíre a good storyteller. Thanks for sharing.


Surrender in love.

A beautiful uplifting poem. Thank you for sharing.


whose thoughts am i thinking

2020-04-21
this is captivating. It causes me to want to stay here and just ponder the possibilities of my own designs or is it desires.
When we create, there are exchanges made from creator to creation, including our thoughts. I suppose.

I can just see Holly with her Testco bag walking towards you. I imagine her with a smile on her face and you with a smile on yours. Kindness is best served with a smile. 😊

A beautiful poem. To me it speaks of faith, believing what we cannot prove.

Your ability to bring your poetry alive with imagery has me smelling the wonderful aroma of the woods. I love this poem. Plus, I just researched Wallace Stevens and read some of his poetry. Thanks for sharing.

And your poetry took me there for awhile. It is such magic.
Thank you for sharing. It's wonderful.

This is so delightful. When I find your poetry, I am eager to unwrap the gift. No matter the pattern, the style, or the subject, I am lifted by its elegance. It is beautiful. I am put at peace. I sigh and breath in new life. Thank you.

I like this very much. I see you in my mind's eye the events of the day as you described them. The poetry reveals the writers heart for humanity. ❤️ It is a caring heart. Well done.

Farewell

2020-01-15
So much sadness but so beautifully written. Sometimes when our hearts are broken they tell our brains how to express the pain we feel in our brokenness. That's how poetry like this one is created.

You know the facts can be cold but your poem is not. It's really good! I liked reading it out loud. It has a good sound with the internal rhymes as well. Especially like the, 'my dear,' at the end. It makes it so personal. It has a Poe quality to it. I really enjoyed it.

Broken hearts do mend with time. Writing beautiful poetry, expressing the deep pain, helps to begin the healing. Your words flow like tears on the page, cleansing the wound and the stain inflicted on your heart. My dear, Katniss, I pray your heart heals stronger than ever before, your loss begets 10 fold in happiness gained, and your life in wisdom grows. ♥️

Just keep on doing it, Ken. Writing, creating, expressing, is the poet. Art is amazing in that it reflects the inner most self. It takes courage to set it free and allow others to view it. At least that's my thought on it. :)

Ken, you can certainly tell a story with very few words. However, the words you choose are powerful in description and intense in their ability to create the atmosphere of the time. Thank you for sharing this history through poetry.

This is so beautiful and comforting. I want to wrap myself up in the warmth and welcoming of this cherished imagery and all of the precious ideals the poetry invokes.

There's so much yearning in these words. I don't know the circumstances but I recognize (or should I say feel it) the pain of loss and yearning.


THERE ARE TIMES

Thinking things through to the logic end is the better way of handling these situations. I'm imagine your wisdom has come through experience. Experience is a great teacher. Listening to the wisdom of others can be helpful as well. Thanks for sharing. 😊

We want to disconnect from people and the world because we are overwhelmed with society's ills and when we do, somehow we disconnect for ourselves. I guess we are made to commune with one another. Perhaps we should regulate how, who, when, where, and why we do this.

Your poetry is very good. I enjoyed it. It is very thought provoking.


fair warning, marketa

I'm glad 'they' got away from it all as they rose to the top much like cream and sap. Too bad all of 'them' had to stay below with all the bodily fluids and such. I'm wondering about the warning.

If I'm on the wrong path, I'm sorry.
I've been absent for awhile.
