I hope that you are feeling better. I know you have not been well. You have been missed by us all. Your poem is full of love and hope, and thats what you are to me! I go for my 3 mo check up to the surgens in the A.M. Im thinking all will be fine. I still have one spot that hurts once in a while, I dont know what it means or why.I found a poetry group that just started kinda near home, that I hope to get to go to once a month. take care my dear friend.

You touched my doorsteps, as I have had many deaths lately around and could not even focus on writing...Life is so precious. Thank you for the true feelings of loss of those who came along or cross our paths in life, and they have been taken away too soon. Your poem is beautifully written, sad though but that is how life shapes and it is part do of our existence. Missed reading your words, glad to be back!

There are many thoughts in your poem that wake my feelings of the terrible past! Auschwitz...Hmmm ?
I use to live there and worked in the place as well. It is a Museum now but the feeling of those souls that suffered there are present in those blocks made out of brick. The row fashion how they were build. A death factory for many Nations and in what name that was done? Till today I have no answer to this. A scary World we live, as one to try to dominate and lead often to destruction.
You have given a lot of thinking to your write. And I see your points clear, your Love for Freedom and equality for all people.

Hi Richard, Finity/Infinity - fair enough, doesn't take a lot to throw me, understand now! Yeah love the concept, life after death of some sort, or something after the 'end' of the universe - does my head in!
Yes, you will have to get to a gig, I'm doing loads now! I will be at Howcroft in Bolton this sunday and the boars head in Middleton next sunday. I'm also doing a gig supporting my mates punk band this saturday!
Doing a similar set to last week when I did a punk/acoustic night in Bolton. Did 13 poems incl some john Cooper Clarke, went really well! Hope to meet you soon, cheers Jeff

Oh 'eck, i'd best stay away from long flowing scarves then. I'm 50 soon.
I definitely can't be accused of affectation though. I'm 100 per cent genuine.

Hey, no. I didn't immediately see that.Very well thought out Richard. Have you entered it into the scribble writing competition?
If you try changing all the first letters to capitals, it might be seen more easily.
Good sense of injustice to justice poem.
ps. hope it's not autobiographical.

Your not by any chance related to Banjo Paterson are you Stue. As your tale is very reminiscent of his style of poetry its good . I love it, more more more.---.

Your poem is good,I like the flow and its energetic too.. The beginning and ending verse just brilliant. Good work

Did anyone notice that the start of each line spells taste in the stanza? I was going to make the letters bigger to stand out but thought this rather a fake thing to do
Wed 13th Aug 2008 10:37
Great poem, Mel. Speaks honestly about how frustrating and exhausting the creative process can be.
I loved the phrase 'umbilical discord'. As with a lot of your work there's a very focused use of language that means the poem demands a re-read.

Hi Jeff, I chose timeless finity for its juxtaposition, because we really don't know if the world is infinite or if it will be bound my time just as in the case ourselves, no one really knows if our death will start another timeline going, maybe in a parallel universe, thanks for the comments Jeff! I still need to make it to one of the gigs!

I just remembered the dancer was Isadora Duncan
'Duncan's fondness for flowing scarves which trailed behind her was the cause of her death in a freak automobile accident in Nice, France, on the night of September 14, 1927, at the age of 50. The scarf was hand painted silk from the Russian-born artist Roman Chatov. The accident gave rise to Gertrude Stein's mordant remark that "affectations can be dangerous."

Thanks guys. Comments much appreciated. Like you say Darren, Wigan seems to be breeding limmos at the moment. Poem was based on observation at a trafffic jam. By the way, Janet, wasn't there a famous dancer who was strangled by her own scarf when it got caught in a car door? Can't remember her name.

Love your poetry. Especially "puppy."

Hi Melissa, how poignant and so true, there have been so many. I listen a lot of Joy Division, no surprise when you read some of my stuff! I thought this (spooky) when I put a pic of singer Ian Curtis on my 'When will it pass' poem.
our heart cries at the loss
of their early departure,
at the light over the stage
disappearing so fast,
- beautiful Melissa and thanks for your comments as always, Jeff x

It's said that there are thirteen crystals resembling diamonds in the world.

Hi Richard, this is excellent, I've ofte thought about the end of the universe, but there can't be one and that does my head in.
Love the concept and the spaceship dimension of the stanzas, great stuff. Just one thing, the second stanza looks like a line short at the bottom, should there be one word to balance up to 15 lines like the others? Something like 'away' or 'fast' ?
Anyway, love it cheers Jeff ps you would love Carla's groovy socks, I've amended it slightly too, cheers

Once again you have created a beauty in a maudlin like scene. ( funereal)
I like the idea of a candle burning in memory of them. However, i believe we are all legends in our own way. At least in our loved ones eyes.

A very slinky poem.
I love the bit of garboesque. who wish to ride alone. It made me feel cold, like i really wanted to wear a scarf, long as poss then i could wrap it around at least a couple of times.
ps. hope they don't cart me away from a football match in a black limmo though. ha ha.
see you soon. love Janet.xx

Hello again Melissa,
Thankyou very much for your lovely comments.
They're always welcome.
Love and light, Janet.xx
Tue 12th Aug 2008 20:47
Thanks for the comment to " I am me."
That word is "me " but i ended the poem like i did because it actually begins with " I. "
Do you see?
I've never attended writing classes but i stumbled on a link on wol which had a section about how to write a poem.
Played around with the words and ideas and that's what came of it.
Blogged it just for a bit of fun really.
By the way, did you see how the discussion link continued, which you started before you biked it?
The one about "what is poetry?"
Take a peek, i think it's still there.
Thanks again, love Janet.xx

First off, I love the formation of your poem. Secondly, I love its essence, the spirit of time.
No matter how advanced we become, the endless skies of the galaxy will still remain far out of our reach, bending every belief and theory of what it contains, and allowing our dreams to touch its stars.
Love the poem. :)
Tue 12th Aug 2008 20:13
Thank you for your comment on my poem, Fine Line. You hit the nail on its head with the existentialism and nihilism.
As for the soldier's life, it is something that I could never do myself, but I feel that these men and women should be recognized as heroes for putting their lives on the line.
Take care. :)

I like your sense of humour, cocaine and crosswords? Do they complement each other? I feel the last stanza is missing a line or something... Keep them coming

An excellent poem questioning life, you've touched on existentialism and nilism here I think. I feel a sense of absurdity in whatever we choose to do when you ask if a soldier is ever really rewarded

hahahahhaha "She lifted up her skirt to show me her tits" I got an image young men should not get. I think lots of old people would appreiate this! p.s I hear buses are a good way to pick up old ladies, look out for the flash of a bus pass or someone saying the number of their route rather than where they are going!

I've seen this perormed at 'Under the Stairs' have I not Louise? You had a small bald doll with you. Either that or I was experiencing some remarkable outer-body experience?
You know I enjoy your stuff Louise. You were one of the few I had to seek out the dizzy heights of '8' from my well thumbed score cards.
Now, off with you. Dip your quill in the inks of life's joy.

Hi Alex - I've not had chance to say anything until now but I'm enjoying reading and listening to your material.
Don't become too down-hearted if not many comment. In my experience many read the postings but don't want to comment in case they cause little things, like wars and things.
The break up in two breaths themed poem was original and articulated with a clarity that some of us can only dream about. 'Hoorah' for that one too.

Concrete poetry? Very, very good. The shape of the words reminded me of the playing card the three of diamonds, as well as the UFO's from Close Encounters...

Yes - from the heart indeed. This passion could propel you way beyond the gravitational pull of 'catharsis' poetry and into another dimesion.
