Hi Graham

Thanks for saying hello! Yes i do need to get writing again. Or even finishing off half written poems might be a start. Will do my best to make time for that because I do love the interaction on here. X

Hi Graham,

Thanks for the welcome. It looks a lively place in here.

I don't need a lot of encouragement, so once I work out what to do, I'll start posting properly etc.

Just came back to comment on your recent poem - but it's vanished... It was touching, anyway.

Our cops have become targets
shot and killed every day
it's become routine-
the breakdown of our country
our civilization.

IF you wish to post a comment
you must first dig a hole
then plant the Post and fill in with cement.
After it dries, the Post will be there for a good 30 years.

(My habit is writing. The only good habit I have.)

I live not far from Warmington, which is the setting for this poem. I live in a larger town only a few miles away. A delightful county second only to one of its neighbours.

Thank you Graham for your Thanksgiving Greeting.
It's not everyday you get a word of encouragement, much less from so far away.
It's a shame you don't have real turkey. It is delicious.
You should get one to raise. They are easy to keep
but quite dumb. I think you could keep one in your spare
bedroom or in the hallway of your "Flat", if that's what you
have. Don't all Englishmen have Flats?
I will think of you as I eat my Turkey today along with dressing
and cranberry sauce. But, I won't think of you too long,
I'm going for seconds and have to be fast! hahaha

A new ink blot test?

No apologies necessary.
I have successfully duped you
into thinking I write
Something is further from the truth.
We just don't know what it is.

Hi Graham,

I admit I am late in responding, but life is always made of so many things, its often hard to come back to everything all at once.
I hope to connect and communicate with your group.
I am from India and unlike all of you maybe from a developing nation, trying to do what I love doing.

Looking forward to today's session.?

Thank you

Thank you Graham for your kind words,
and by the way,
how's your forest?

how do you change the sillohuette
on my poem home page?
That outline looks stupid in my estimation.
I don't know where it came from
or how to change it.


Fri 10th Apr 2020 03:14

Well, if a poem is not "understandable"
what's the point?
Should we just write Riddles?

Greetings Graham.
Thank you for your comment for the piece, "Hands of Ankh".
There is no translation, as the poem was inspired through a dream, in a language I do not know. Sorry.
Since that time, there is someone I know who believes it it Swahili!?
Wow, and translated a few lines, but didn't have time to translate it entirely.
Thank you for your support.
Love & Light.

I love your page and poems ? I new here trying to reach out to others. ?

read "Fifteen"
very poignant
how often men remember
the first girl that caught their eye
so young so innocent
so lasting in the heart.

I see one person said it was good to have you back
even if you did not post anything.
Maybe that's the secret for us all.
The less we post the more we are admired.
