Biography

I have been accused of writing poems. although my thoughts aren't large, still thought goes into my poems I plead Guilty as so charged.

Samples

CHAIN LETTER I love breaking chain letters especially the ones that say this has been sent to over 30,000 people and now you have a chance to read it and pass it on to all your friends and relatives who will in turn pass it on again it is up to you they say to keep it going Ad infinitum Ad nauseam because it the righteous thing to do and anyone who breaks this chain is despicable and morally bankrupt bereft of any mercy too bad DELETE the end of the chain sent into trash-file oblivion I hide in the closet awaiting the chain letter Gestapo I am certain they will come for me and take me in for questioning and after waterboarding force me to confess I am indeed the chain letter assassin the provocateur who deliberately with malice aforethought stopped the all important chain I will be publicly whipped then tarred and feathered ultimately I will be hung from the highest e-mail post my body thrown into the river in passing I would add this poem is also a chain-letter but poems are different... DO NOT BREAK THIS CHAIN. -d.knape

Speaking for myself, I said "pre-diabetes"...the prelude (with suitable
medical warning) that too much sugar is the problem. I have a sister
who has suffered the type 2 arrival late in life and it has affected her
in other intrusive and unwanted ways that have caused problems
ever since. I believe a sedentary/till job (now retired) in a major food outlet - with tempting discounts to staff on food not sold on any given
day - was the trigger to the weight gain that seemed to herald its
appearance. No wonder the alarm bells are ringing in a certain
large country in which it can now be said that no longer are people
living off the fat of the land,, but that the fat are dying off the land !

d.k.,

Thanks, but I am no longer in Spain but returned to England eighteen months ago. Having said that the socks still come in handy as it is mid winter here.

Hi d.k. - I certainly seem to recall a breakfast cereal of the name "Cheerios" here in England, although it's not my own choice.

Keep posting... posting keeps us young!

Ah thank you. 'Why Poems' was the fastest poem I've ever written and I was quite pleased with the results (although I guess I stole most of my ideas of Vautaw's original). 😃

my praise to you
a versatile poet
and a good chap too

Hi D, thanks for your comments on Naked. Glad you thought it authentic but I have been happily married for 20 years and it's all fiction! Was inspired by a friend's relationship breakdown, but poetic license was liberally applied.

Sport balls round the ground

Don't kick-toe others round

I indeed have typed on. You have sparked me into writing one about a lonely typewriter in a shop hoping for a buyer. Posting soon.

It seems you haven't yet caught up
My first attempt free verse
Writ on the 6th of August
Took long while, (was a curse)

Titled my 'First Efforts at
New-Age Poetry'
It gotta lotta comments
Which, yes, did pleaseth me

Here are the first few lines
What one might call a 'taster'
But then again dk you might
Think it's all a waster

Time.....

"Beauty is a constant.

To roam the path is to become one with it.

We vibrate, we heal, we are reborn

Have you found your circuit?"

Isn't that music to the ears dk? I can almost hear the heavenly strains of violins in the background.

Shit! Who wrote this script dk?.....

While you're asleep I'm busy awake

Absorbing the day you're awaiting

We're governed by nature, must go with the flow

(It's caused by the planet rotating)



Oh? No-one told me that.....

Why haven't you told me dk?

Hello Dk,

I get that same feeling when I see old punks still donning the trappings of their youth. My comment on your poem was not meant as a criticism on content - it was an attempt to start a discussion regarding revolutions and behavior.

I do know who Howdy Doody is, Buffalo Bob! This one is Charlie McCarthy.

Dude, "White Horses in a Darkened Field" is fantastic. At first I was thinking, cool, kinda like "The Horses" by Ted Hughes. But no sir, wholly original, ripping with symbolism and simplicity. Great work.

Re 'Broken Hearts' the fear of rejection is a powerful 'motivation' not to do things. Even posting poems. Won't do it because others might not like it. Rejection at work...

You need to give me a reference poem to go to to see what I wrote

'not sure what you mean here' ??.
