er.....scuse me girly! where did you get 'extolling' from? if you are dead posh..our friendship could be called into question! hee...hee..ah! yes coincidence re prom walking...forgot to tell you-it was in a very posh seaside location..might be a little too posh-even for you-it was in a very classy place called B******OL-dont want to give too much away-otherwise all the riff-raff will be here in flat capped droves-ferrets and all.The 'peace and tranquility' garden had a bronze statue in it-supposedly of Les Dawson-ha! looked more like Tessie'o'Shea! he worked a lot in Blackpool eh Lynn.....DOH!-Stef-xx(B-xx)

Good evening Lynn.You tell em chuck! everyone to their own tastes of course.It really would be nice to be able to defer from eating meat(as I do...ouch! my legs-lol!)but breaking old habits can be so hard.I think the best meat eaters can do-is do so,but as with-anything-in moderation? Different angle to ponder on here Lynn-wonder if Pauls secretary is a veggie-or meat eater? oh you are awful Mr Wilde! cheers greengage girl-Stefano-xx(B...sausages!-xx)

Tee hee - I like this one a lot. Underlining it is the knowledge that for a big chunk of the time you are probably not 'that kind of mother'... Doing something good like baking a cake or making jam massages the guilt away n'est-ce pas? One I can identify with...and beautifully expressed as ever. x

Aw Steffie, I'm not mumsy enough, but endeavour to be, that's why my kids are confused, one minute I'm making jam with them (not literally) and the next ignoring them and hissing at them to leave me alone while I'm writing :)
Glad you liked it

Thanks Greg, I have, on your suggestion tried doing what you said and liked the result lots...though I think I'll stick with negates (although I love the idea of sweetness tying in with the jammy theme)just because I like the shape of it in my mouth when I read it for some reason, the definite articles are definitely better gone!
Fri 20th Aug 2010 15:58
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.

Thanks for the comment on Jelly Babies :)
Bramble jelly is dead easy, the recipe is pimps, just berries (I used about 3 lbs)normal sugar and the juice of 2 lemons, it did involve some yakky straining through a sieve though to get rid of pips and the odd caterpillar :)
Fri 20th Aug 2010 15:50
Love this poem, Rachel. Just been making greengage jam from my garden, but have to admit eyeing up the berries in local fields while dog walking! Good one x
Fri 20th Aug 2010 15:13
Hi again Stef, that was a coincidence re prom walking doggies etc. Ta for encouragement, but think my newest poem on boating is a tad too long - it has ended up being autobiographical, rather than than extolling the life. Perhaps I'll put it on anyway! Thanks again, Stef, Love Lynn xxx

'Boats' on the 'sea of life' never becomes a stale metaphor. You have given it a fresh breath with your own philosophical searching.

I really like this, Jubalani. Drumming can be powerfully hypnotic, narcotic, pulling out of one's self ecstasies, which can be interpreted as good or evil. Why do you call the African drum 'demonised'? It raises all kinds of questions in my mind. This is a good poem.

Your note makes the poem even better. I missed the metaphor, even with all your excellent 'guidepost words'; can only think it was my experience with morning tides in Bermuda, after the 'social boating' of the prior evening/night, and personally collecting nasty flotsam to 'clean up' the lovely beaches. Your meaning in the poem is very clear - my error.

Your mind is a mine-field of disparate ideas that amazingly work when thrown together. Of course, they do. Life's like that. Is that a coke?
Fri 20th Aug 2010 14:37
Superb poem. I preferred 'crisp' linked to 'little bonnets' but isolating it does make the word spread over many ideas. Your images are insightful and delightful, your language warm and glowing.
Very funny title 'take-off'.
Fri 20th Aug 2010 14:28
Vivid images - to vivid thoughts - to a moment caught vividly. Outstanding are 'smoke string ribbon cooling on a brim of stars' and 'ceasefire of the senses' etc. I really liked the formatting also: a small effort for such big effect. The single line turn at the end is very emphatic, and exciting.

I agree with Rachel. This is charming and uplifting and really brings a smile to the face, Stefan
Fri 20th Aug 2010 13:22
Glad you enjoyed this, Cynthia. You mentioning a body brings me to the second strand in the poem, how for me it is also about dreams and that feeling when you wake that you've been taken on a journey over which you had no control, and then washed up somewhere, you don't know where. It's a feeling I get more and more as I grow older!
Fri 20th Aug 2010 13:18
This is lovely and juicy and seasonal, Rachel. My favourite lines are "the sun slant through the ruby", "storing bounty up for winter," and "spooning scented jelly." The words ruby and bounty are terrific. Suggested tiny tweaks ... I just wonder if you might consider another word or phrase for "negates"? Sweetens? You could also do away with the definite articles around "carping" and "thorns in fingers," if you wanted to, I reckon. PS The blackberries at the end of our garden are the biggest I've ever seen this year!
