Thanks Moxy, just getting the cart hell out of the garage now and I'm off. The screaming and suppurating wretches will probably have fallen off it by whitsun so I shouldn't disgrace the proceedings too much.
That last stanza Sophie. There are different degrees of left or right preference. I am one of those who is overwhelmingly so. I am not a particularly well coordinated person and I couldn't write anything right handedly to save my life. The truth is that I can't write very well with my left hand which is part of why I am so much more at home with a keyboard. (There is very little bird seed in my keyboard).
Anyway, back to the point. With the brain displacing so much motor activity to a different location relative to a right handed person I believe, and there is growing research evidence to support it, that other brain functions such as speech, language, imagination and hand-eye coordination are developed in different brain areas than they are in right handed people.
Left handed people do not live quite as long as right handers. This could be due to a higher accident rate through living in a world in which implements are predominantly designed for dexters, but there is some evidence that there is more to it than that. We are probably inherently more clumsy as a consequence of inferior hand-eye coordination. So far as the use of speech and language is concerned, things are much more complicated. Overall, women tend to have greater articulacy than men, but left handedness seems to improve speech and language use, so for a male left hander there are some advantages to be had in the use of words.
Sorry to go on so much, but what the stanza means is that I consider the different arrangement of brain function for us sinisters results in some enrichment of society because by products of the different motor arrangements include creative and linguistic outcomes that would not otherwise be there.
Your grandad probably hoped that he would help you to fit in with the norm and make your life easier. It was a misguided view that has now mostly gone away I am pleased to say. The fact that about 10% of the population are left handed indicates that there is an evolutionary reason why it is not eradicated.
All of my wives are left handed, but we have only produced right handed children.

my grandad was obsessed with me writing with my right hand even though i am left handed.. i just waited till he wasn't looking and switched.. what a pointless exercise!
Not sure about the last stanza though... am i reading your meaning there right? (ha no pun intended...)

Long Live The Southpaws, the Sinisters! We Dexters are too plentiful. Wired straight into the fecund imagination is what you are. A rallying call of bsolute distinction, Mr Malpoet.

Clarissa~ I adore trees. All kind of trees. The bigger the most magnificent to look at! I love the Baobab... African trees that really provide a shelter for local people. I was amazing when looked at the pictures from Africa and the use of those particular trees. The picture attached to my write shows that particular tree.
Thank you for your sweet comment!

Your computer eats too much. I bet your bird is the skinniest around this Christmas.
The tee shirt is on its way to the utility room where it can hope to serve a decade or two cleaning windows, floors and things before exiting to the garage to become an oily rag. It will probably be doing service in this capacity after I have expired and gone to fertilise a rather beautiful prunus.
Fairly good value. I got it free as a piece of advertising. Mind you, all this disgusting overconsumption is contributing to a catastrophic end to the wrold. The sweat of its makers probably contributed horribly to global warming.

Doh! A fitting (one size fits all?) epilogue for the Gozo life of a Hunteresque Tee shirt. 'Hope I fade before I grow old.' Fairtrade to you, sir. Has it gone for recycling by way of shoddy or household utility rag? The seven ages of man hypered and condensed and analogied -- Tee-rrific!

Thanks, Ricardo: and, if it's okay, I'll respond with another (introductory) peom from my collection walkaboutsverse.741.com -
Poem 3 of 230: PICTURES
Photographs and, more so, painted-
Pictures of people and places,
For ends, involve in some cases
Adjustment of what was gathered.
With restrained artistic licence,
To make metre and rhyme with sense,
All matters related here -
Save the love-songs, to be clear -
Did happen to me, no fear,
And time-ordered they appear.

Dave, it is me again reading your awesome poems!
I love the imagination-how you implemented the knowledge about punctuation marks and other grammatical errors'
Placed on a section and pressed between these four walls,
wrote off and unpunctuated and covered in black and blue.
From waged hands I’m carelessly portrayed
disrespected and stamped with dark brown coffee stains.
A trademark that left a bad taste
I manifest on the page as a question mark
hooked and hanging,
like the misplaced apostrophes;
I’ve lost my sense of belonging."
I found that those punctuation marks are very important, especially when someone does the recording for a specific write. This poem has a great educational values.
Happy New Year 2008!
I will be interested to read more of poems...Zuzanna

When I came to your Biography page, I have learned more about your motifs and the ideas why you love writing. I must admit that I have been employed in Rehabilitation Institution for over twenty years. I guess this will be the outlet for taking the mind off from the daily grind if someone has to deal with other people health issues. I found your writing very interesting. Your poetry is very easy to understand.
The poem -- "Lightness"
It was all black and bleakness until the Greek man boarded,
he must have been twenty five stone plus.
My friend and I helped him with his suitcase
as he wrestled with his breath."
This wonderful write has a depth of a traveler a someone who is not sure what he will encounter in a new place. Then the delicious description of a wonderful Greek food, cheeses...etc...
I love this type of poetry.
Great presentation and pleasant to read.
You have done an excellent job on that Poem!!

Thank you for your great comment on my poem. This one was actually based on a real Internet romance that ended in a wonderful relationship.
Today fast pace life leads people to seek easier way to meet another. Internet became a decent place for meeting but both genders need to take the option of dating through this media more seriously. All is possible...
I have not been writing Novels yet but you actually prompt the idea that I might start thinking of it.
Thank you again and please do not feel guilty as I am very understanding woman. I love poetry and read many a day.
I see that you are a romantic man and the poems or other romantic story would be something to please you when was well written.

Malcolm~ The picture in your poem again is very well described! The Moon shows the fazes slowly through your write.
"That lunar lady though!
I have seen her reclining.
as if she might disappear.
Next thing you know,
she is all bloated.
Same shadowed complexion,
Your comparison to a sickly lady that really makes me thing about your hidden thoughts and your way of writing. led slowly into deep thinking what you the writer wanted to conwey to a reader.
I must say you are VERY CREATIVE!

I love bulls too. They are proud animals. They seems not to be afraid of anything. In case of sensing danger they begin to charge. I have seen this in my life but few times. My favorite animals are German shepherd Dogs and Horses. Those are my favorite. Thought will share this with you since we are both animal lovers.
Thank you for the wishes. Hoping for a wonderful and Peaceful year around the World.

Happy New Year to you Zuzanna. I really do love bulls. They are magnificant and I was really pleased to see this one making his own decisions.
The jerks who kill bulls in the bull ring in an orgy of power, sex and violence are beneath contempt. I would like to see my bull's horn right up the arse of some cocky, preening matador. Might be a nother poem there.

Dear Lady Melissa~ You have great Imagination in writing and I like your style. Your descriptive words paint the picture from your write quite clear!
"Remains of dreams
cling to me
as my body begs to sleep more,
but my thoughts are entangled,
a spider-web across my eyes. "
Sat 29th Dec 2007 03:26
Phil- This entire poem is really great you have placed a lot of metamorphosis in this piece and I loved the comparison of a single naked letter
to a white virgin page.-- this is so creative and lovely.
"A single letter is as naked and vulnerable as the virgin white page
The thrust of sentiment comes from the streams that forge the channel
Could it be the start of lover’s dreams to slip letters between sheets?"
Thank you for another great read!
Happy New Year 2008!!

Hello Malpoet~ I love this write! My thought went immediately to Spain thinking of those Bulls they are being used for the Corrida'- I am sure it is almost the right name for this particular sport or Festival over there in Neigbouring country. But your IMAGINATION was even better when you mentioned that he was looking for cows...Smile
"The great ring in your nose
by which your mighty strength
had been controlled,
was now a bold piece of jewellery
setting off the beauty
of your face."
This stanza is fabulous!!
Today even people were this type of jewelry in their pierced nose. Kind opf interesting how your description here fits the decoration on this Bull face...Great metamorphosis !
Thank you for the great read.
HAPPY NEW YEAR 2008!!
