Another great one here Marriane. Started with a great title. 'Proteus' is such a great word. After reading the first 4 lines my mental imagery was already dancing on hot coals not being alowed to settle. Forging on, my journey became ever richer until the closing passages when the piece seemed to resolve itself, the waves calmed and my boat sank gently to a calmer if sadder place at the sea's bed. Sorry if this assessment is a bit unusual your work defies to be described in simple terms. Win x

brilliantly composed piece. Every line is a poem in itself.

Hello Iso :-) No it wasn't me, it was Orhan Veli Kanık, a far better poet than me, and nearly everyone else. Of course, I am better looking, naturally.

Thank you for the warm welcome Michel.
I do hope to furnish you with poetry that is 'divine' in the coming winter months.
I read Oblivion and the words explore the title well. A bit too gratuitous for my sensibilities but extraordinary and powerful idiom you have. 'blithe oblivion' 'lamenting crimson' 'demonic expiry'. I wondered if the variation on elipses length of five dots and four dots expressed any more than had you used large gaps to signify time passing? but that's a mystery I shall have to take to bed with me this evening as I'm sure it is too late for you to respond tonight.
I look forward to reading more from the Francois canon in due course.

Good evening Winston,
Thank you for the welcome to Write Out Loud website.
I read a few of your poems and enjoyed them: For some reason I was reminded of Cathy Grindrod with some of your rhyme schemes. She is really good as I'm sure you'll agree. So I do hope you take that as a compliment.
I look forward to reading more of the Winston canon in the coming winter months.
Gregory S Nussbaum.

Hi Nicky, just catching up, really like this,mainly because I don't think I would ever dream of writing it, brave writing and left me with an uncomfortable feeling in a way, suppose you meant that - the feeling of restriction, anyway good stuff, hope to see you soon Jeff X

Selon mon dictionnaire français (Larousse)
Bêtise nf 1. Manque d'intelligence. 2. Action ou parole bête. 3. Chose sans importance, futile.
So... yes, it does mean stupidity, as in lack of intelligence, as well as in things done or said, and things of an unimportant or futile nature.
Je l'ai trouvé vachement intéressant ; )
Hey, it made me stop and comment.

this is great stuff, and i admire it's dark and resigned nature especially the last line. Also the isolation was worked well and did justice to the overall layout. Good stuff, looking forward to hearing more.

Hi Cynthia. Thanks for your comments on The Silver Surfer poem. It was fun to write and came together rather quickly, didn't realise this style was en vogue however. Win
