Yes i do have my reflective moments. I quite enjoy the creativity it brings out.
Must be the beautiful full moon we just had. It had a definite affect on my emotions.

HI John - many thanks for your kind comments on 'Excess memories' - much appreciated
Fri 7th Aug 2009 11:29
Hi Janet, you seem very reflective lately. I like the mood of this.
Titles are quite important I think but it is difficult to suggest for something written by someone else. For what it's worth I would stick with the current title.

Hi Cynthia - no particular hidden depths in this one - to be frank it's one I put aside for a few days intending to develop it further but no inspiration came so I left it 'as is'.

I had two titles for this and couldn't decide which one to use.
The other option is ''Addiction''.

Cheers Jeff. I really appreciate your comments as this is the type of poem I shy away from sharing or reading at open mic nights.
Managed to get a slot on freed up so I'd better get writing!

I'm now in the groove. Do some more. What's the connection with Iceland?
Thu 6th Aug 2009 20:29
Had to get into it by reciting with my eyes ... very good. Similar to Canadian poems written in a French-Canadian patois which I studied years ago.
What was 'wet'? Sweat? or Wet dreams?
Thu 6th Aug 2009 20:22
I enjoyed this too, Sophie; loved its freedom of imagination. Who knows, it may truly be a parallel universe of a different reality.
Thu 6th Aug 2009 20:12
Hiya Cat, great to see you last night. Really like this and yes I got lost in the depressive loneliness of it all, love it - really good stuff!!
Really like - Crocodile tears for an audience of one doesn’t draw a loud applause - brilliant!
Through some turbulent times I've analysed myself in the mirror, not a pretty sight by the way - sure you had a better view! - but if I'm reading it right theres no point dwelling on it (easier said than done at times I know).
And you're not, the new Cat P is upon us, so to speak! I certainly don't think you've had your final encore - Jeff X

This is very interesting, and well written - but I'm a little lost as to meaning. Would you help me out a bit? I have ideas, but I'm not at all sure of their validity.
Thu 6th Aug 2009 19:55
You are a very clever man with a wicked sense of humour, and classical skill in 'poeting'. Really good.

Mr. Wood, I'm sorry it has taken me so long to 'get into' your poems. I think they are excellent, so much so that I have no favourite/s. I may not comment much but I will read them all. I believe that you have a high standard for your work.

Hi Nefertiti :) Thanks for your comments upon 'School Rules' - I probably was seen as a little devilish in Grammar school since I questioned pretty much everything, especially in R.E. lessons, ;)

I liked it too. It's not often someone uses the word effort in connection with love but it's so right and you manage to pull it off

Nice Janet. Love the last two lines.

Had to log in to say how much I liked this, Sophie. The thrice repeated 'fly', 'mispelt' consistence and so much else in this poem work really well to give a strong feeling of the need to let our imaginations take us where they will. Great

like it Sophie, laughed out loud at this verse
Catch the last train to Unconscious
Pop the last gray matter bubble
Take my hand and let it launch us
Into Edwin Hubble’s stubble.
Nice one :-)

nice one, 'The Wood'... The last line is a killer!

Just to say thanks for your well-considered comments on my poem. I'm delighted that it appealed to you. My memories of 'I Got You Babe' are slightly hazy. I was only three months old when it came out. I must remind myself of its finer details.
With best regards from New Malden
