MERLIN

2024-05-26
The sad thing is that we often outlive our pets, but that's the deal. Nice one Allen.


DEAD LINES

2024-05-25
Sweet lines Alan, and it is love the survives us.


BUBBLE AND SQUEAK

2024-05-21
A blast from the past - and it had to be cooked in Lard.


My 1970s

2024-05-21
Nostalgia's not what it use to be; good poem Thomas, a lot to remind me; though, not sure about the Swiss reference why would it be such a red rag to the Germans - do they hate the Swiss that much?


Going with the Odds

2024-05-21
Amen to that Lawrence - one sinner to another!


LITTLE SPIDERS

2024-05-21
This reminds me of my father in law - who had the heeby jeebies from drink; he liked talking to his imaginary phantoms - not that the same is the same for you Alan.


Truth of the Matter

2024-05-21
Any despair itself forms the compost of creativity - just like this f.i.n.e poem.


A Half-Century Later

2024-05-21
Ah! The foolishness of youth - which we should celebrate.


Procrastination

2024-05-21
In a nutshell: there is no end to procrastination, nice poem.


Irritable

2024-05-21
The pearl is made from the irritation of sand; a good poem Sona.


A Good Day Indeed

2024-05-21
Well, I think I've got Bauhaus, Redgrave sisters, maybe Dame Helen (BC?) but I haven't yet cracked Tas-bloody- manian.

Anyway, nice one Thomas


midnight

2024-05-11
A perfect piece - words that can't be remembered or read?


ONE DAY TIME WILL END

2024-05-11
You've expressed perfectly the contradiction of human existence; that we can imagine not being alive, and all that follows from that. Bravo Allen


ONE APRIL MORNING

2024-05-11
I liked the rhyme sequence, and how you've rounded the poem off with the last lines reminder of life's continuance; nice one Allen.


UNBELIEVABLE LOSS

2024-05-11
Thanks Allen, for reminding us of what the Holocaust was all about - the extinction of innocence and decency. And have we learnt any better?


REPEATS LIKE THE BEATS OF MY HEART

2024-05-11
I liked this piece; it has an archaic feel to it, and it conjures a rustic setting on a balmy summers day, with the erotic intertwined with the bucolic. A good one Allen!

The point was not to threaten visiting lecturers with pokers, at least not with its point, so he lost his point!


aside to marketa

2024-04-04
I like your short poems - the skill is in the less


on hwy 1

2024-04-04
A condensed story, elegantly told, and I liked how you used the highway as a motif.


summit

2024-04-04
Yes, the variation is intriguing - a novel and refreshing form I quite like.


UNIVERSAL RIGHT!

2024-04-04
We've been exchanging 'blessings and love' for quite a few years Allen, and I believe it makes me a better person.


THANKS TO READING

2024-03-27
Don't pay the ferryman Alan; good poem though.


Airplanes, Wind

2024-03-27
I see scudding clouds causing the rag tag stars.


Mirror of Patience

2024-03-27
A poem as much to oneself - nice one Thomas.


YOUR CHOICE

2024-03-27
Good one Allen; to make anyone consider what is true - to oneself or to any system that takes away choice.


what happened in lincoln park

2024-03-27
A fine elegiac poem, evoking a time and place gone away; I enjoyed it.


Let go

2024-03-13
The art of letting go
is not so hard to do
we should try it
and grow to like it.

A good poem Sona, you show the way!


Rehearse

2024-03-13
A nice evocation of a still cold month.


Jen

2024-03-13
The skill is in the brevity - damn good!


ten of three

2024-03-12
I'm with Allen on this one; a masterclass in poetic brevity with elegance that lingers in the mind.


DEAR DIARY

2024-03-12
They said, cheer up, things could be worse, so I cheered up, and sure enough - things got worse - nice one Alan.


OUT OF A CLEAR BLUE SKY

2024-03-11
Brilliant ending, I didn't see it coming, then re-reading it makes it so understandable. And I liked that 'she' is not someone we need to avoid, quite the contrary - she could be taking us on to the next place.


Hills

2024-03-10
A poem to conjure attention; thereby lies its inner meaning. or so it strikes me. Just damn good poetry.


Deposition

2024-03-10
A painting brought to life, so perfectly.


When Songs of Joy Are Sung, Deep and Full-Throated

2024-03-10
I've missed your poems. So a joy to read this one.


THE GUNSLINGING PREACHER

2024-03-08
A good old narrative poem, hard to beat.


for you

2024-03-08
The beauty is in its brevity - Bravo one trick!


Aaaargh

2024-03-05
Thanks for this Alan. I salute your courage, just even in sharing this.


ONCE MORE

2024-03-05
I applaud this poem; as it tells its story, unfolding slowly but with great lyricism, and at some point it dawns on the reader that this is about love carrying on into anew life; Bravo Allen!


FORGIVE ME (a personal view)

2024-03-02
This poem hit me hard, and it must be written from your heart Alan. With Alzheimer's my wife and I watching close friends going through the same. Stay Strong!


The shamelessness of truth

2024-03-02
Without truth we are nothing, it is what people are prepared to suffer and die for - as with Navalny. A great poem Christian.


Un

2024-03-01
A good Haiku


HOSPITAL DAYS - 10

2024-03-01
Well, how did I miss this one!! A classic Griffoner poem, subtly subversive, of our secular temples of health. After all, that's all we have left, until the last dying breath! Bravo Allen!


Ill-Fitting Jacket

2024-02-23
Sure is - spare and terse - my king of poem.


Side effect

2024-02-23
Looking in, as I do nowadays, I'm only commenting on what inspires me, and this one of your does it big! Bravo R.W.S.


Who, dear heart

2024-02-18
A lovely lyrical poem; and it had echo's of Walt Whitman in the best possible way


SHE'S ALZHEIMER'S NOW

2024-02-18
This really struck a chord inside me Allen, and you'll know why; and such a moving poem, which brings to the reader the sadness of her condition.

B & L....Dougie


Literary History

2024-02-17
Shades of William Carlos Williams, and done so wittily! Nice one Thomas.


suspensive clauses

2024-02-11
Wow, I've just read Lawrence's comment. Ahem......? Haven't you not noticed that we have a murderous bastard in the Kremlin obsessed with recreating the Russian empire?? I'm just glad we still have NATO - sans Trumps America.


Today

2024-02-11
Well, my dear R.W.S. you have encapsulated the frustration and humour of advancing age, and so spot on!
