Aw, this is so sad and almost wistful.
Death by chocolate sounds divine.mmmmmm..

Although i once sent a card to my brother-in-law which had a picture of a waiter asking a man what sweet he'd like. When he asked for death by chocolate please, a huge bar of chocolate dropped from a great height, squashing him flat.
ha ha.
Sorry, couldn't resist that bit of sarcasm.
Love your poem.

Oh yes, i like this one too.
There always seems to be something missing.
I know what's missing in my life but i can't put a percentage on it.

Is anything ever 100 % ?

Love that line Pete.

I know quite a few people who live in the bottom of a bottle. Very sad sight.

Great poem and a bit political or a bit of a parody if those are the right words!

wow, well much of the world is a disaster, and many follow it. seems you enjoy watching people, so do I. They are fasinating.You know he may be perfectly happy with his life. consumer greed is a real problem, but they shop to try and get happy, and it does not work very long. I see it everyday.

ooohhh I do like this one! Never belive that others are just slap happy all the time. Even the rich get cancer and die. Happy is a state of mind. its accepting the day as it comes, and understanding not every day will be fun, and thus you are not happy everyday. I guess some cats are happy everyday. Mine are. loved the poem and the last lines!

Hi Pete

This really says soooo much. I've been having a bit of a crisis lately over the state of none relationships and thinking that B&Q would be good! Thankfully I have great friends to remind me who I really am and so realise the grass isn't greener. Liberty is pretty much everything for many of us .... thank you all for letting me remember this very lately, you all know who you are.

Great sentiments Pete puts it all in a nutshell x

Hi Tim. Thanks for the comment on " now, then and back again."
I'm trying to do more of these but it's difficult sometimes because i don't want them all to look the same. I'm working on it though.

Hope you are keeping well and it's always nice to see your poetry in the blogs too.
love Janet.xx

Hello Pandora,
Thanks for your comment.
Oh no!!! now i have to go and find a playwrite.
I haven't read The Chairs by Ionesco.
My poem was based on the fact that someone gave me a table without any chairs.
The actual search was a myth but it goes down well at open-mic gigs. It's just one of those poems that took about 10 minutes to write and rhymed all the way through.
A creative streak when i was sitting instead of working for a change.
Thanks again, love and light, Janet.x

Hello, Antonio

The poem is good. I found your imagination quite amazing and also amusing! The creative site of you shows well in this imaginary write.
It sounds at the last lines as you had some fan at night that put you at ease...Lol:)
Correct me if I am wrong...OK?

I like the style in your Sonnets!

Thank you,

Hello Dear Poetry Friends

Thank you Janet, Clarissa and Jeff for not being afraid of my imaginary Phantom;
Like I mentioned this was my trial poem. I am not any fun of this type of poetry. However there has been fiction written about all sorts of ghosts - This was maybe the first and last poem I wrote about this subject.
My personal choice is life, love, friendship as well as Nature.

Have a great weekend!

With my warm thoughts of you…Zuzanna

Hi Melissa,
lovely sentiment in your poem. Shows you care what people think.
Clarissa's right though. Once you've made your peace, it's time to move forward.
Regret is a very negative feeling. Forgive yourself and others find it easier to forgive you.

Love and light,
Janet.xx

HI June,
I hope you have been well. I have 3 kids, 2 boys and 1 girl. The 2 oldest have moved out, one to soon and with the wrong boy. But I, as Mom know nothing.I think everyday should be Mothers Day. But then,I understand your poem. Im not sure we get any thanks. I see my Mother everyday. I talk to my dad a few times a week. I may not agree with everything they say, but I try and understand them. There used to be a show on TV, called Waltons Mountain, they were poor in material things, but so wealthy in spirit and family. I always wished for such a life, in that the family was close, heck all live together in a big old house. There is so much to learn from eachother. I find older people of great value, when it comes to advice. Once in a while I have to remind them that they were young and stupid once, and we have to have patience, with the younger people. Ah Im rambling on, I like this poem. Go knock on their doors! Bring the tea and toast and just do it. Bet it would shock their socks off! take care xx clarissa
