among women

Just getting on with things I guess, day after day, doing what needs to be done, unsung, except for your words of acknowledgement x


JELLY BEAN

2022-06-15
Ah, the Jelly Bean Blues. Maybe a Sherbet Dip Dap Dance or a Hubba Bubba hustle will lift the mood.


Prairie Grass

And that's exactly how I felt when I saw Wyeth's Christina's World for the first time. Wowsers, fabulous how you can stir memories with your writing.


This Awkward Dance of Ghosts

2022-05-15
I'm not familiar with Stockhausen, but I like your description of the abrasive effect , sand between teeth, dreadful feeling.


ME AND BOOKS

2022-05-01
There is something comforting about books. I am not a great reader, but I love the comfort of the library, I feel safe, knowing my brain could, if it desired read anything.

i am lynn

So, Lynn enjoys the music and the poetry. Lucky Lynne. Mornings in my house are the best time, before the cocophany when everyone wakes up . I have learned to flow, absorb, detatch....write it out...


COMING HOME

2022-04-30
Good to know that though the place is gone, there are good memories here, places to escape to, adventures to be found, imaginary kingdoms to lord over, good people to hold dear. The place you were formed, where you learned silent skills of choice, decision making, risk, negotiation, how to fight, and apologise, so many more.


SHE NEEDS FEWER ECHOES

2022-04-29
She speaks his name with such care
gently wrapping her lips around
the letters like baby kisses
so as not to break each dream....

How pretty is that , so delicate, so full of love.


plain language

O , very
More laaaaaaaah, I would think. 😁

A good tour of recommended reading, Seamus Heaney broke my heart with his grit. and Dylan, he's another story


Sometimes 1 - 3

2022-04-29
See myself enjoying your journey and the style it is written


Father

2022-04-26
Nicely done, waves of the ocean like the fluidity of dementia - being present, coming and going, remembering, recalling the solid memories. Love does endure, this much I know x


THE POLITICIANS

2022-04-24
Aw Ken, wouldn't it be ideal if that happened, no more lies, no more corruption, no spin, sadly, politics is beyond , disconnected from the average Joe or Joline. My faith in them is non existent.


En ce moment (with translation)

2022-04-24
Yes, I've felt this over the years, with my children, with friends, with absolute strangers, of late, particularly the Ukrainian devastation.


Sitting under the redbud tree

2022-04-24
It goes like this when I read ...

Read read read,
Smile,
Breathe in,
Breathe out
And relax


Spring

2022-04-24
My my, you have been observing very closely and the use of French adds a delightful delicacy, so reflective of Spring's lightness after Winter gloom.


No title

2022-04-24
Fantastic piece of work, the title doesn't matter, the words are everything


Family

2022-02-27
And there you show us how most of us are a mix of nature/nurture. I see your parents, I see you , so cleverly interwoven to a sonnet loving Dylan seeker. Fabulous.

I wish I could speak bird and find out all their stories from their travels


Duality

2022-02-19
It is cool and crisp and effective. More words are not needed here.


UNWORTHY

2022-02-19
Hmm. I'm wondering who truly is the unworthy one? They that cry the tears, or the subject of their fascination. For the writer still grieves so for them, despite being treated unfairly, I deem the taunter unworthy of such tears.


Sunny hello

2022-02-13
Hi Lacy I'm glad you read it and enjoyed your own interpretation. Believe it or not it was intended as a Spring poem. It was a warm sunny morning here when I wrote it. The stallion is Winter.


La Bise

2022-02-11
Yes I agree , it's like wearing a comfy jumper. Thank you. I feel restored.


Clear and Generous

2022-02-11
Now then,

This line alone "under clear and generous starlight" is the one that brings it all together, ever so skilfully and truthfully.. I may steal that line at some future point. I am also brutally honest with my intent.

Well done.

My mouth just had a workout. Awesome


centering

2022-01-15
There's an art to being understated, true things do not need trumpets to announce their existence, and here is a truthful description.


Deadly

2022-01-15
Oooowf, so many references. There was at first a quick read through, praising myself thinking yes, yes I know that, or that, thinking to myself, this is charming, sing-a-long...but, as the vernacular goes " missy just got educated!" Rather, in Dublin's case, illuminated. So, on further inspection I'm happy to say it's not so much a biddy,biddy,bum poem, more Sonny, I've been bad a binged to death

Now, after that comment, I think I need a lie down.

IN OUR TWOSOME KITCHEN

2022-01-13
Missing anything is a hardship, more so people, pets, but I could see you in your kitchen. Well reflected .


MAYBE AD INFINITUM?

2022-01-13
Hopefully not, imagination is the truest escape. I'm thinking of Mandela in his cell,


What my Nan said to me

2022-01-11
I'm laughing, but not at you, with you, more smiling at a familiar memory of loved ones. My paternal Grandma had a thick Black Country accent ( please, readers, this has no disrespectful meaning, the name comes from an area so named during the Industrial revolution and the heavy smoked air from the foundaries,and coal seams therei

DAD SANG ME A LULLABY

2021-10-16
Ah Ken, this brought back memories of my Dad singing to me. He had a big booming voice that he could quiten down to soothe anything away. Thank you Ken.


First Flurry

2021-10-06
I am intrigued. Can we have more please. I'd love to know the back story.
I'm just conjuring thought of suffragettes in front of horses.

2021-09-19
Offering yourself, is really the only thing another truly values, it is honest, to show the real self, is, in my opinion, the greatest gift x


WHEN MY TIME IS DONE

2021-09-18
Yes Ken! Settle for troublesome at the very least....maybe aspire to problematic if you fancy.


Money makes the world go round

Thought at first I was reading a teenager's diary entries, then number 10.


arid

2021-08-18
I'm reading and reading in blissful continuous loop...

Just one verse is enough right now, this.

dark and ominous

drift and dissipate with the heat of day)

Mozzafiato!

BOOK STEPS

2021-08-04
I don't care what they say, kindles are all fine and that, but, no child should ever not know the mystique and enjoyment of opening a book, the delight of re- reading an old favourite, the tactile experience...etc etc

A very talented music teacher told me once, playing the triangle is one of the hardest jobs in the whole orchestra..so stand tall man. Even a triangle is call an Equal(ateral) sometimes, no?
