Thanks Cynthia, I really appreciated the comment, I did mess around with spacing more than usual this time, I had put it on facebook and looking at it, there were loads of line spacings that just didn't make sense...so I changed them before putting them on here, I need to watch that I think.

Hi Cynthia. Re: comment on 'Savage Goddess' I never remove comments. Please try posting it again. I don't know why it's not there ... (:

Cynthia, thank you for your comment on 'And Where is Your God?'. It is the first time the phrase 'consummate poetical skill' has been applied to my work and it is praise indeed which I truly appreciate. Thank you for that. I don't read as much as I should on WOL but I will make every effort and reciprocate. Wytchewoode

Thank you Cynthia for your very kind comment on "No Matter" - I was afraid it might be too maudlin! Maybe I need a maudlinometer! Or maybe I don't!! xx

Thank you Cynthia for your very flattering comments on my wonderful poem.

Hi - Ol Blue Eyes - I must admit that before I wrote it, I had to look up the spelling. Apparently, Sindy was the UK's answer to the US Barbie doll, so even though Cindy is a "real" US name, over here the new doll was called Sindy. all the best B.

My Irish great uncle Seamus Guinessberg ran a shop in Cork which like many Irish shops combined two businesses; plumbing and a bookshop. It was called Only Connect

Hi Cyn - glad you liked it & thanks for the comments
(smoke & mirrors) all the best X

Hi Cynthia , thanks for you picasso comments. I saw the doc and liked the matisse one even more, very interesting. a spray of words. Yes... that just about describes it I think :-)

thanks for your comment on putting dad to bed...So glad you understood x

Cynthia, just read your comment on my profile, thanks. You ask about this superficial situation, the Cynthia superficial sitaution sites sympathy from me, yes it happens to me too.

The poem was more concerned with how I feel about poetry. Good writing turns me on. I like poetry that has mystery and surprise, when not everything is spelled out. I do think of the brain as an erogenous zone. The person taking their clothes off could be male or female. I had no one in mind. I am interested in your use of the term physical arena suggesting romance as a wrestling match-the grapple of love.
Thanks for your interest

Many thanks for your kind comments on my Fishes poem! xx

I thought it might be, the metaphysical is such a wonderful area to explore. And I'm so with you on the paper copies. I started my paper anthology before I ever put a poem to type and I've lost enough computer files along the way to continue with it.

Hi Cyn - (seed pearl) - many thanks for the kind comments - it's only an oblique reference to the notion that precious moments/thoughts have been called "pearls", that pearls are hidden within the folds & also why oysters are the "food of love" - because of what they are said to look like & taste like. sorry to have to be rather explicit !

yes I came with my friend James to poetica once I want to stay in touch with the group and know whats happening although i live in hampshire!
Mon 26th Jul 2010 11:36
Thank you for your kind comments I have added another poem
Sun 25th Jul 2010 22:20
Thanks Cynthia for kind comments on Sunday Afternoon poem. I nearly didn't put it on as it seemed so slight. I NEVER understand this poetry lark! xx
Sun 25th Jul 2010 21:34
Cynthia, thank you for reading and commenting on "Melancholium".
I am always intrigued to read your feedback and understand your angle on this piece.
Strangely, I see it a a much slower, thoughtful poem, hence the title and the almost daydream-like rambling of the words. The inspiration for this coming from those idle thoughts that pop into one's mind sometimes. Whatever happened to so and so etc etc.
Sun 25th Jul 2010 18:14
Thank you for your high appraisal of 'High Tide' and 'Stars'. I haven't really posted in a while. I'm hoping to post more from here-on-in.
Sat 24th Jul 2010 10:52
Hi Cynthia, thanks for being so kind about Walking the Shore - and for not objecting to the fourth verse! The trouble you take to read, appreciate and criticise people's work is always morale-boosting. Greg

Thank you so much for your very kind comments on my German Boy. xx
Wed 21st Jul 2010 20:11
HI CYnthia! Thank you for commenting my "Playtime". I am happy that it appeals to you. It was partly childhood memory, partly grown-up reflection..
Like your new poems. Keep them coming! X

are - by rest assured-
fraught with fatigue.

Thanks for favourable comment, Cynthia, on "Seal Pups". The Humane Society International have details:

Hi Cynthia, Thanks a lot for the comment on my recent poem(s). It means a lot. I loved your Clichés poem, by the way, unpredictable, amusing and very intelligently written. TB
Mon 19th Jul 2010 16:38
Hi Cynthia - Rachel is here in case you didn't realise, http://www.writeoutloud.net/public/blogentry.php?blogentryid=11547
Mon 19th Jul 2010 13:44
Thanks for comment on Crystal Clear Cynthia. I didn't actually use the word invisible at all though, so I don't see how there could be too much emphasis on that particular word. I was more thinking of something cold and clear and transparent as a block of ice. Not necessarily invisible. xx
Mon 19th Jul 2010 13:16
Thanks as ever for your thoughtful comment on 'Science Fiction'. I'm afraid Sale isn't a possibility. I play league table tennis and it's the club practice night. I beat everyone last week (competitive? moi?) which has never happened before. So, although Sale is tempting, it wouldn't be good form to fail to show this week.
Sun 18th Jul 2010 13:07
Hi Cynthia You know I'm far too shy and polite to tear you to pieces ... the very thought!!
Thank as always for reading...
Sun 18th Jul 2010 00:32
Thanks for reading and thanks for the comments, it is much appreciated.
Cynthia, with most of my writing I hope there are layers - that's the way my mind works - things relate to each other in both an obvious and obscure way. I like word play, and thought play, and lateral meanings - it can be as obvious, or as deep, as you want it to be. I think with a lot of poetry the interpretation belongs to the reader, not the writer; as here - both Francine and Carole have seen different things.
Sometimes, you are quite right, I am literal and obvious, and I use poetry to try to cope with, or make sense of, things that are getting on top of me - sometimes people relate to that, sometimes they don't. But whatever my frame of mind, or my intention, or my meaning when I write something, is irrelevant to how the reader will feel about it, so why does it matter whether my intention was to be deep or literal? I am a multi-faceted person, I endeavour to make my work reflect that, sometimes it works, sometimes not.

Hi Cynthia, thanks for the comment on 'stone I own' as usual I'm never sure about posting stuff, also it looks different when you post it, I would like to take guidance on punctuation etc. I dont normally punctuate, with this one I did and its no good, so ill go and edit. I have recently been joining different poems together just to try somethin new, it may head towards a cut up idea, just to keep fresh. I seem to have lost the desire to shout at moment its all Love n stuff. Bestest . Pete xxx
Sat 17th Jul 2010 18:20
HI Cynthia. Thank u for commenting on my stuff. i tried not to overload it with meanings and images but maybe i didn't succeed. Actually i'm just from Steve Waling's workshop and it gave me some new ideas. I posted new poem written at the workshop as well
Fri 16th Jul 2010 19:45
Thank you for reading my poem 'The Berry Bridge'...
So very interesting and perceptive your comments are Cynthia!
You just go on and say whatever you want... : )
Tue 13th Jul 2010 23:57
Hi Cybthia, Rachel is fine I think she is just taking a short break. Hope you are well.
Tue 13th Jul 2010 20:23
Cynthia. Thanks so much. Taking out Grandma is meant to have a double meaning. It's about my mother-in-law who suffered a series of strokes, vascular dementia and a slow death. Taken out in that sense.We hoped for a quicker end - Apocalypse - but got The Long March.
"disturbed by weight of water" refers to the handkerchiefs dislodged by rain but also implying, in my clumsy way,teardrops.
Tue 13th Jul 2010 11:53
Hi Cynthia, many thanks for the comment on Curing Poetry....I have honestly found writing very hard work recently, stuff's been drying up but I hope the drought will be over soonish. Your comment was as always much appreciated, and gave me a boost.
Mon 12th Jul 2010 14:05
Thank you for your very well thought out and written critique re 'Men Of A Certain Age,...
I often catch a glimpse of myself in that poem.... sad
Mon 12th Jul 2010 14:02
Thank you Cynthia re the typo She's... I had originally written a different line ... overlooked the She's....
Thank once again
Sun 11th Jul 2010 13:55
Thank you very much Cynthia for reading and commenting on my poem 'La femme qui pleure'...
I wanted to try something different.
Sat 10th Jul 2010 11:56
Cynthia. Thanks for your comments on Stroke.I can't decide between resuscitated and regurgitated. What do you think?
Sat 10th Jul 2010 07:58
Thankyou most kindly for commenting! I'm glad you enjoy my poetry, and your encouragement is much appreciated - as a pessimist I am prone to shelving opposed to sharing, and I feel far more ready to share after your insightful response.
Thu 8th Jul 2010 20:50
hi Cynthia... thanks for your comment on Whitehaven. your comment was on a par with my poem lol :-) Win
Thu 8th Jul 2010 17:37
Thank you for your very considered critique Cynthia...The tongues reference is an observation of how when she listens she rubs her tongue over her teeth in an unconcious effort to look both charming and interested...
Once again many thanks!!
Wed 7th Jul 2010 19:25
Hi Cynthia, thank you for your comments on "Enough's Enough", much appreciated. Most of it is legal actually, but shouldn't be. Thanks again, Lynn x
Thu 1st Jul 2010 16:08
Hi Cyn - "crimplene & tweed" - you are so kind to me & my poems - I don't know what I've done to deserve it, since many of them are just daft throwaway ideas. I remember commenting on yours about "what women want" type of theme a while ago which was really good, but sometimes it doesn't seem fair that one or two poets just seem to "ring our bell" & yet others ignore them. Ah well different strokes & all that !
all the best. B
