ah YES you totally got it Hazel ­čśë this was an exercise in trying to create an archaic looking language to fit the archaic looking poem of a crows perspective on life. It was easily achieved using a phonetic translater - which uses emphasis on the words stresses - so reading it aloud is exactly the exercise needed to make it work - the 'translation' was more for those who simply tried to read it - rather than use the phonetics.
Glad you liked it

Hazel - thanks for the comment. You may be interested to know that I received a note from a WOL "moderator" to tell
me my poem had been removed because it did not comply
with WOL Codes of Conduct and furthermore that WOL was
not a platform m= for my political views. I think back on what I've seen on the site and the foul, often vituperative
language used in political attacks and criticisms - and I can
only wonder at the reasoning behind this decision/action.

Hi Hazel, thanks for your comments re "Plans on hold".
l use "thoughts" to act as a pivotal and personal expression of what would otherwise be a too factual, impersonal account of events.
I appreciate and welcome any and all such advice.

Just rechecked your 'bio'. I've been enjoying your recent participation in 'Comments' on many poems. I'm not sure what you 'might call home'. Your own inimitable self?

(Have I spelled that right - too rushed to check my dic. Definitely slipping!)

Hello again Hazel - I'm more than happy with a bit of insplagiarationism! - one of the wonderful things about WoL is the way we trigger dialogue and response through poetry and commentary. So bring it on is what I say. I'm also flattered that you found favour with my Fun in a Fiat 500 - phew! It did strike me that your Earsplitting was on a similar theme when I read it. All good stuff and nothing to forgive whatsoever. All the bestest, Col.

All feedback gratefully received. I type straight onto the blog so don't usually do stanzas. But agree this one (Child) needed them.

I love the little poem under your bio. If your 'flying words land precisely', lucky lucky you. And they do. I am green with envy.

Hello Hazel, it was your comment on Kevin┬┤s poem ┬┤Sylvie┬┤which drew my attention to your profile and some of your poetry. Your style is enticing and also enigmatic. I have enjoyed most, if not all, but particularly liked ├Ź lived my life that way┬┤and ┬┤The End is Nigh┬┤. Please write more. An aspiring fan. Thanks. Keith

Hi Hazel. Many thanks for your comment on my latest blog entry. All I ask from myself is to evoke some feeling through my work, even if it only be in one individual. Then I know I've done my job (erm...such that it is!)

Hi Hazel, my mother has that picture up in her kitchen and it reminded me of myself in old photos, although that kid would be a few years older than me. I was born in in 1953. Anyway, I posted it as a taster from my next book After Hours out in April from Cultured Llama.

Hazel, I happened to stumble upon your profile. Call it serendipity. The universe moves in mysterious way I guess, all we have to do is be receptive.

I'd like to know more about your Mindfulness practice.
Then I would like to share my beliefs on it.
