Biography

I have a good sense of humor, i like to chill out with a good book or watch movies, I am very easy to get a long with and a very good listener.

I did my best on this

Hope like music Un-perched on a summer night Floats thru an open window Accommodating as a breeze Lassoed by a kite If lifts your spirits It’s with you as you sleep Working its way to your heart Holding the dreams you keep Displacing knots of doubt And tangles of fear Unshackling the soul And drying your tears It cannot be stored You must gather it fresh It’s free to roam It has no address You seek its source You can feel it near It urges you onward It whispers "I’m here"

My first writting poem

I love the fact that the title is so misleading! Aquarium. Do you think of one in a home, or office, With rainbow-shards of tropical fish Swimming above pale gravel and a toy treasure chest In vaguely moss-green water? Or do you picture the sparkling tanks In the public aquariums in London, Palma, Brisbane, San Francisco, With their exotic sea-creatures; The rays, the sharks, the improbable seahorses (That I believed to be mythical, like unicorns, Until, as a young teenager, I found and bought a perfectly preserved, dried specimen In a shop in Lyme Regis)? The word 'aquarium' conjures up such pictures, such memories. It does not invite us to focus on a lowly snail! Yet Ammons takes us from the vastness and variety of marine-life containers, Both public and private, To a close-up of a single snail, Taking air into his shell, Taking too much air, Letting some go and, In a magical final couplet, "and down he goes, as if dreaming gravity's smoothest dream."

Hey Crystal,
Thank you for this stunning visual and emotive image...

"and down he goes, as if dreaming gravity's smoothest dream."

A wonderfully warmth reminder to us all that sometimes 'going down' is the right direction. It's call is irresistible, the journey, straight and true, our thoughts and minds may daudle but life's path is here for you.

We fancy that it's us in charge, and yet we find much blame. Why fight against the pull off the tide, instead, we could just PLAY!!! 🤪💃

Keep up the writing! There is a lot of fun to be had and the writing 'community' here are wonderfully supportive, interactive and generous of soul.

I only started putting my thoughts 'out there' since August last year and find that's it's the reading and contemplation, ideas, thoughts and inspiration that comes from this remarkable collective of hearts and minds that has given me a sense of oneness.

I hope you can find the same. I look forward to reading more of your prose!

No offence, Crystal, but I have to agree with the other comments. I'd be glad to talk poetry with you - yours or mine, I mean - but I'm not looking for a penfriend. Best of luck to you.

As far as I’m aware, this site is to post, read and chat about poetry. It’s not really a friendship site, of which there are many. Thank you
