Young Woman in Summer

2020-10-24
Sounds like she's making this guy's heaven and earth rock :) Love the graceful descriptions, they conjure and create the scene and the actors in it very well and clearly. So beautifully written, merci.


SAVE THE DATE

2020-10-24
Ha, got me wanting to save that date! :) I like the energy in these lines. The pace has a catchy beat that adds to the positive vibe. Very nicely done, thanks.


Killer Poem

2020-10-24
How do you come up with these? This is brilliant :) It's so neat how you place all of these references like that. And in this form, too. Seriously good... one very happy reader here, only smiles. Merci.


In the Park

2020-10-24
Well, I think the speaker is being harsh on themselves. Aside the heat, I think the impatience grew because there was no patience offered for their position from the start. These women came to them in the very insistant belief that they know better for them. They don't actually listen, and there's nothing better to make impatience surface than that, in my opinion. I personally think it's very rude to approach people like that. But yeah, I understand this... sometimes the emotional side of things doesn't help us handle situations as best as we can. You described the scene and the emotions really well, thanks.


darkness

2020-10-24
Opposites again, I think :) I actually love the prolonged periods of darkness. So the feeling of having to reach into my own resources isn't really present for me, not for that reason, anyway. If personal, hope you feel better soon.


I'm Done with the Calm. Can We Go on to the Storm?

2020-10-24
What a wish! I can't imagine people actually wanting that, but hey, whatever floats their boat, right? ;) As I went from line to line, I found myself first going, "Alright, I get that" to "Oh?" and then "Hm'kaaay". Must admit it made me chuckle a little 'cause this went a very unexpected route, and I always find that neat. Thanks.


Luckily, I'm Nobody

2020-10-21
Oh, absolutely not for me either, that's for sure. What a dreadful (!) thought to contemplate, actually. It's no wonder that a lot of people in such positions end up cracking up sometimes. Got me thinking, thanks.


NOW

2020-10-19
I like the "I'm in control and I decide" voice coming through here. A confidence in life so hard to achieve through all of the obstacles and dealings with people we need to deal with, I find. That's aside our inner self's dealings. Your lines make me think that the speaker has finally come to the conclusion that their worth matters and they won't let anything stand in the way anymore. It's a really strong feeling for me. Very good, thanks.


Spider Man

2020-10-19
Rob! What a pleasant surprise this morning; so happy to see you :) As for the spider here, I'd advise it to not stick around too long if it cares to not get squished! ;)


The Holy Ghost

2020-10-19
She sounds like an interesting character :) She comes right off the page, as though standing before me with your descriptions. A reliable, dependable caring friend is how she comes across and it makes me smile. This is a lovely composition, thanks.


I'm In

2020-10-19
Always impresses me how you can write all of these forms, and how you make it appear all so effortless. For my part, in response to this, I'm also in! (ie your fan) Yes, completely :) Thanks for this pleasant delight to start the day.


day by day

2020-10-19
This gives me the impression of someone finding their center through everything else that surrounds. A personal refuge of sorts? As always, I enjoy the contemplative moments you write about, thanks.


Autumn Dresses For All Hallows’ Eve

2020-10-19
Autumn is my favorite season for its delightful colors and comfortable cool temps. Your portrait captures its beauty with so much texture. Very enjoyable read, thanks.


The Frustration Funnel

2020-10-19
Oh, that's inspired for a lack of inspiration! I think writer's block has got to be part as one of the worse states to be in. By all appearances, I'd say you're putting it in its place :) Wonderful poem, thanks.


Homecoming

2020-10-19
"the materfamilias, / As always, becoming impatient and crabby /
With all of these people who she had / Invited." - yep, that sounds about right (as many other lines of this!). I think I've been to one or two of these occasions, and it unfurled pretty much in the same manner as described here. Family people and dutiful get-togethers, it gives what it gives, eh ;) Really well-depicted, thanks.


Shittiness as an Aesthetic Problem

2020-10-18
I would hazard a guess that the decision to not sit in those places with those people is in great part not only about the fact that they are nasty individuals, it's also because they are sooo ridiculous and boring as a start. Five minutes are enough to make my brain cells want to jump off a cliff ;) The line "It's
Not a punishment that's earned." says a lot. Those who believe that people's financial poverty is caused by a charater flaw really baffle me. It's reassuring to see that not all of us think this way! Comme toujours, your lines make me think - thanks.


winter scares me

2020-10-18
Perhaps it's because I live in winterland ;), but I actually look forward to colder temps. In saying that though, I do identify with the "Help!" section for its length! I like the warmth of sun, but summer heat, no thank you. Funny how opposite our preferences can be. Really enjoyed this, you write so well. Thanks.


ROTTEN ROYALS

2020-10-18
"Rotten royals are my mind and heart" - I really like the effect of "Rotten royals"... conjures a view of petulence, greed, and ruthless coldness for me. Again, very effective language to create the moment you present. It makes the reader picture and feel... and I always do with your writing :) thanks


HEAVY RAIN

2020-10-18
Loneliness, sadness, lassitude come through for me in these lines. Squeezes the heart with empathy for the one feeling this way, and although it doesn't exactly fix things, it makes me want to extend my arms for a hug! As always, you leave strong impressions with your words. Well done, thanks.


melania

2020-10-18
Oh cette famille-là, j'suis tellement pas capable! C'est époustouflant à quel point ils sont complètement déconnectés.


Lost and Found

2020-10-16
It happens :D Made me laugh here, merci.


The Mournful Season

2020-10-16
Feels like a case of heavy seasonal depression... The weight and the dread are so sharply felt with how this moment is described. Your writing is really good at giving this experience to the reader which is something I appreciate a lot about it. Thanks.


Maple Aerobatics

2020-10-16
Love these rich and vivid descriptions! Autumn and nature in all its splendors... beautiful. Thanks.


titled

2020-10-16
Ah oui? Pourquoi? J'ai l'impression que le contexte manquant de la déclaration m'empêche de bien saisir. Mais ma réaction initiale c'est de penser que les non-croyants ont aussi un peu le même problème. Quand ça vient aux croyances, il n'y a pas moyen de vivre et laisser vivre, apparemment.


my new year's day

2020-10-16
I so enjoy your style - I also can't help myself from being taken along and feeling glad to have been taken along! Makes me wish I could write like this. I could see myself reading a book from you from start to finish in one sitting. Oh wait... ;)


It's Been an Age

2020-10-16
Yes, I'm starting to see, feel, live it too. I'm not at pensionable age yet, but the changes are inevitably more noticeable. Physical appearance (mirror doesn't sugar-coat it), physical health (declining), people (retiring or moving or dying), pets also gone... all of it, I so identify with. Not convinced I'll get around to liking this getting older business lol ;) I kid a bit, but your lines made me nod all the way to the last. Couldn't have described it better! Thanks.


Rising and Setting

2020-10-16
So much going on in these lines that ring a bell, so to speak, in my memory. I particularly liked the effect of L3-L6, strikes an impression I can't quite describe (sorry), but it's one that makes me feel, and creates a strong sense of a moment that is in the reins of something other than the speaker's hands. Feels a bit off-mark to say I enjoyed 'cause the feelings in this are so sore, but I enjoy how well you write. Thanks.


COME THE NIGHT

2020-10-16
I can certainly relate to that! Would be nice if it'd take a break once in a while, eh? lol :)


o muse!

2020-10-16
Hm, I suppose it is. You can't exactly force it to happen if it's not around. Well, you could force it, but the results of that are never really great, I don't think :)


a passing thought

2020-10-16
Well, I don't feel the best placed to say what is and what isn't poetry, but when it comes to your writing, it's very clear to see that it's poetry :) You're evidently an artist! So many beautiful lines in these musings. I get around to thinking about what we write about... also the unease of change should it come as described in your lines. I guess we would adapt to the new way, and once settled in, we'd be writing about that? Interesting ponderings, and as always, marvellous writing, merci.


THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WALL

2020-10-16
There's a sad feeling coming through when I read these lines. A feeling of loss, and a blocking, like there's an unattainable, unreachable good to life that can't be recovered. It leaves a strong impression. I'll be pondering on it for a while, thanks.


THE ENEMY

2020-10-16
I tend to agree with that... we are usually good at not being good to ourselves! Figuring it out can sometimes take quite some time, too. Ah, we are a complicated bunch, aren't we? ;) Reading this made me see the portrait of us clearly, one that I can recognize. It's well-depicted, thanks.


the neck in heaven

2020-10-16
Hm, je ne comprends pas trop le titre... le cou au paradis? Ça veut dire quoi? En ce qui concerne ce qui était mieux avant, et le mieux qui viendra plus tard, c'est une contradiction qui frappe. On est plutôt doués à faire ça, eh? lol Comme toujours, tu me fais penser, et c'est très intéressant où tes pensées mènent les miennes. Merci.


Sugar Rushing

2020-10-13
The irresistible sweet temptation so well captured! And I can see the little face "sugarfaced and guilty", too. This is a lovely poem, thanks. Welcome to PoetBay!


thanks

2020-10-13
J'ne peux pas m'obstiner avec toi là-dessus :)


Navigating Nevermore

2020-10-09
This is interesting to me because up until yesterday when a friend mentioned this poet, I'd never heard the name. My friend was actually happy about this poet having won an award recently 'cause they appreciate her a lot. And here, it appears that joy isn't felt at all. The two of you have me curious now :)


built-in poetry

2020-10-09
Quand t'as le goût d'écrire, mais que toutes tes tentatives mènent nulle part... j'aime beaucoup la façon poétique que tu présentes ici pour le décrire, merci.


Something Shakespeare Never Said

2020-10-09
hehehe... now there's a scene to picture! And of course, my mind does :) Très comique, merci.


Track & Field

2020-09-19
Oh dear, from the sounds of it "Four men beat him" seems quite literal going by the "ff" of his missing teeth? ;p This made me smile, merci.


right to the south

2020-09-19
hm ouais, un peu dans le même genre de lorsque l'agressé devient l'agresseur. C'est difficile à comprendre comment certains de ceux qui savent c'est quoi le vivre ne semblent pas capables de s'arrêter pour ne pas le faire vivre à autrui. L'humain est tellement bizarre desfois !


Deux's Company

2020-09-19
hehehe... oh, but they're so good, right? This is funny, it made me smile. Thanks.


CLEMENT WEATHER IN RAMSGATE

2020-09-19
Oh, we're lately getting brilliantly comfortable weather over here (between 4C and 13C) after this horribly intolerable heat we got all summer. The hot and humid heatwaves came way ahead of time at the beginning of the summer, and throughout (instead of the usual few weeks in July), but now it's inching its way back to its usual, and it's markedly cooling down finally. I'm a happy bunny when it gets cool - I guess I'm a true Nordic girl after all :D Hope yours starts to behave ;) soon.


Charms to Soothe

2020-09-19
Ok, was my turn to go translate a few words from this :) I like the character being depicted in this, the blending of her language, the response to her swearing and fussing, and how you described it as if all of nature reacts to it, I thought was well done. I enjoyed this, brought delight to an otherwise uneventful evening on my side - merci.


self portrait: 2020

2020-09-19
*sigh* if only I could write like this :) Full of admiration for your writing. It's putting it very simplistically to say that this is beautiful and lasting poetry, but voilà, it is, and I'm always left with a delighted impression every time. Merci beaucoup !


meanwhile in kathmandu

2020-09-19
What a picture! The scenes kind of rolled in mind like a film for me when I was reading. I've heard of the Sestina, never attempted it though. These forms are mind bending, aren't they? lol Yours was without surprise (bien sûr) very well-written, and vibrantly descriptive. Wonderful poetry, merci.


elemental

2020-09-19
Ha, I don't see « bric-à-brac » often employed, so that was unexpected :) Enjoyed these lines, thanks.


THE TIDE (Addians)

2020-09-19
This speaks to me of the unexpected, how although we're always aware that things will come our way, we never know what they'll be until they come. That's where your words took my thoughts, merci.


JUST BREATHING

2020-09-19
Got a sense of wanting to break free, change the things viewed as less than stellar about ourselves. Felt like a revolt and a rejection of everything that's been bothering - an enough-is-enough outcry. A lot of emotion that catch my heart and mind's attention. You express the turmoil very well, thanks.


Dry

2020-09-19
Oh, so many funny lines in this. I thoroughly enjoyed the fun, and the fact you placed it in this form really impresses! Very well done, thanks.


Days of Difference

2020-09-19
I like the sharp contrast of the two stanzas. It describes those states so very well. Last lines also caught me, and they definitely speak to me personally. Hoping first part is more often than the second part. Excellent writing, thanks.
