Is there a defined meaning to dreaming about dreaming? And is it more significant when placed awake in couplets? Most enjoyable, ta muchly, Nick.

Could maybe do with a bit more rhyme and zap

My head is spinning, my feet suspended so high off the floor

I cant take this no more!

I just wana run to a dark silent place, a place not visited before

a haven where i can exhale and my heart can roam free

from the voices inside whispering to me, jump,

jump of the edge of mount Kilimanjaro

Thanks for your note on Tickling Fish, Cynthia. I'm turning over some ideas for a few more as I had so much fun writing it.

I was thinking about your nonsense poem the other day, and mine, and about different ways of writing, and it made me think of when I was a kid keeping those diaries...did you ever used to write in code? As well as the mirror writing, I used to make up endless series of codes to write in too. It was SOOO satisfying to do that I might do it again :D Really quite time-consuming though!

Incandescent are asking for submissions for their second edition chuck - think you should send something off to them. It's a book too, rather than a journal, on or offline.

This sounds really familiar to me, but obviously it isn't. That's harsh - less than my worst case scenario. Did you choose it though, or did it choose you?

Hi Innocentia, thanks for your comment on my poem 'The Poet' much appreciated and welcome to WOL! Feel free to read any more I've done, the last three are in a similar style.

Enjoyed reading your poem here, lots of pressure in all aspects of life these days! Just one thing, a couple of typo errors - should be 'there' not 'their', 'off' (the edge of Kilimanjaro - like that line).

Sorry to be picky but it takes the edge off the poem when they stand out, so hope thats okay! But these voices are figments of my imaginination, great stuff best wishes Jeff

Hi Larisa,
I was in error, Poetry should be read slowly so it is digested properly. I failed the first commandment. Naughty Nick. Bit too busy writing plays at the moment so I let things slip a bit, sorry! Keep going with your good writing, Regards, Nick,

Dear God RM You do writers groups? shiiiiiiit...

Do you like it? (I laughed for I know him honest I do!) I think original is a good thing Sometimes I like rhyme but soon become bored of the rhyming, sometimes I like half-ryhme..sometimes none..sometimes prose...sometimes I just dont give a damn...

Neither should you...this was funny and a great observation of a moment or three (especially if he was well stoned) He may have a point, he may not, ahhh what the hell eh?..lol

I think Harry has nicely summed up what I have always thought about your poetry, and more recently for Patricia's too, that you never make free verse look like chopped up prose - mine usually does, lol. xxx

Now then, MP.
I have to say I prefer my poems to have rhythm. ("It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing"!). But that's just my preference. I was always Stones rather than Beatles and Ovett rather than Coe.
At an Open Mic a couple of weeks ago someone said that RAP stands for rhythm and poetry. Like they'd been strangers up till then.

My small Collins English Gem dictionary seems to be on your side insofar it defines a poem as an "imaginative composition in verse". Your work is surely that much - whereas it defines poetry as "art or work of a poet". There seems to be a subtle difference here - and maybe it's that word "art" that ups the ante and gave your critic the fuel for his reasoning.
Poem - or poetry??!! Take your choice and remain a tad
confused in the process.

A wry, immediately recognisable "take" on the
difficulties met learning a musical instrument.
You could have fun with the ukelele! It was
the one musical instrument that could be strummed to provide an acceptable accompaniment
to many of the songs of yesteryear - and the old (and not so old) songbooks provide the
finger placings above the stave. I became quite good at "Camptown Races" (doo-dah, doo-dah!) and a few others that shall be nameless.

Dear John,

Mebbie if you directed your supple cock problems to page 3, you may find yourself rejuvenated and capable of applying two extremities to the job in hand...

I chuckled at your letter - particularly verse 2 where you seem to lose your rhyming scheme along with your marbles and your stick of rock.

Methinks rhyming schemes are the least of your problems though, John - so take what's left of your life in both hands - and enjoy it! x

Thx for reading and commenting upon my Chelsea Haiku Win- appreciated. Sorry for the delay getting back...I didn't think anyone would have commented on the poem after the first week...only just noticed :)

Hope all is well.

Not sure what is happening your end of the world, though someone said that Hebdon had no event at the moment? I even heard a rumour you were moving or sailing to another spot? Is sailing the correct term for a barge, is barge even the right word for a houseboat?

Hope to catch you read somewhere soon over the summer.

I confess to something of a vested interest as my late eldest sister married a U.S. forces survivor of the post-D-Day operations and returned to his country and bore him ten children. His generation is rightly venerated for their deeds in defeating the vile barbarism of the Hitler regime (albeit that no one knew its equivalent lurked in Mother Russia!). It is the thought of men like him and what a U.S. government can publicly "spin" in our own age that brought about these lines.
