You are quite right, Cynthia! Accident is another name for a pure chance. But! In this poem I prefer to use "accident". It is really a good synonym, but....chance is a chance and accident is an accident. Anything can happen by chance, but...an accident can turn the whole life upside down. I've met with them so many times.It is considered that an accident hides the inevitability.

I would agree with you Ann but direct speech rarely makes for good poetry. I paraphrased what the copper said which is why I didn't use full speech marks. It works better for me but I hear what you are saying. Glad you liked the poem - it was a bit of a different one for me. x

Glad you liked Walking the Shore. It was about a former colleaque who I was drinking with last night, as it happens. Glad to report he's in the best of health! Commiserations about the rejection, by the way. I had a sheaf of returned poems waiting on the mat for me when I got back from my hols the other day. Ain't it always the way?!

Wed 25th Aug 2010 17:32
Hi,dear Ann! I think if anyone works hard it's a big problem. I don't like to work hard. I am very lazy. My mother used to say that my laziness was born before me.lol I can't say that I've never worked hard. There were moments in my life when I had to do that as... there was not the way out. And... we all have a choice: to lose or to win. I always prefer to win. I always wanted to win. So, it means that I had to work hard, even if I didn't like it. T think if you are clever enough you will escape the hard work you don't like to do. I like the work that gives me pleasure. And...if it gives me pleasure then it is not hard at all.
I don't understand those people who say: I am a hard working man. And...it is really surprising for me if they are proud of it.
As for me I prefer to think. I think everywhere: in the bathroom, in bed, when I fume and I am sad.And I never regret. I think when I eat or drink, when I walk or talk. When I write poems I just collect my thoughts together and rhyme the words. lol , try to give them sense and move to logic.
To my opinion, hard work is something you are forced to do. If any work is not a pleasure then I just hate it.

PRICE OF FISH?? What do you mean, the price of fish, is that all you think we women think about, Mr. Wilde? Get prepared for some shocks then, in that case!! (when my version appears) And why are southerners excluded? Even Cliff Richard was only struck dumb!!!
Wed 25th Aug 2010 17:16
Love the profile pic. Windswept power. Keep up the poetry variations.
Wed 25th Aug 2010 17:10
ah! now then Lynn-you have just reminded me-I forgot to mention the exclusion of southerners! DOH! as King Homer would say-female version? deffo! but dont do too many comparisons on the price of fish,for heavens sake(intended pun)grubs up here in relentless rainy Rhondda-I,m safely tucked up inside-stripping.....wallpaper off-umph! my full belly and I will catch thee later,Mater-ta dead big lots-Stefan-De-Flatcap(and ferret)xx-(B-xx)

I'm finding writing haiku quite liberating! I've started to experiment with starting every stanza of my poems as a haiku and seeing how the structure works for me. Building and adding words etc where I think they're needed! Watch this space for the results; good or bad! :-)

Hi Lynn, thanks for your kind comments on my Pearlfishers poem. And I definately think you should write the "female idea of heaven" poem!! Somewhere where chocolate is very slimming, wine is free and men are always nice and polite!! (No, that would NEVER happen - not even in heaven!) xx

Hi Cynthia - thanks for kind comments on Pearlfishers. I agree with you re the un-needed words and have made a couple of cuts. And, did you remember where you read that article on Emily Dickinson? ;-)
Wed 25th Aug 2010 16:38
Are onions the only vegetable that makes people cry? Maybe it's a defence mechanism to stop people eating them!! (Doesn't work - we are having shepherd's pie for dinner - including onions!) And I like this little haiku! xx
Wed 25th Aug 2010 16:35
Nice to hear from you. Maybe one day I'll make it to a slam somewhere up there! I'd love to meet some of you northerners! I'd like to read some of my stuff too. Thanks for nice comments on my photo! 'Bout time you changed yours! Miss seeing the lovely poems too. xxxx

The 'crab' imagery is novel and very effective.
IMO, maybe a bit of further editting would make a pearl of this poem. eg. 'ancient bottles' doesn't really need 'glass' which blocks the poetical music of 'eight ancient' - or maybe a different word to highlight another aspect of 'ancient'. In the same vein, you might do either 'sparkly sand' or 'island sand'; both adjectives tend to drag down the line. Reposition the 'extra' desired word somewhere else. I do think 'stoppered' would be a given, unless you want to exploit more ideas from the word itself, in which case it might take a line of its own. Always just suggestions with great respect for your wonderful talent.
Wed 25th Aug 2010 15:43
'Edit, edit, edit' is your own best advice. Very few works lose their 'sense of spontaneity' by reviewing them repeatedly with a jaundiced eye. IMO, most poems give you their 'soul' when you tend/cuddle/prod them into maturity.
