Greetings Joy: I'm writing to tell you that your dark Gnostic views pull me into your poems like philosophical bate. Sweet is the fragrance of a poet who smells of duende.

Hi there Joy - welcome to the wonderful world of WOL! Your sample piece is as Kenneth said, a refreshing item and should guarantee more interest. :)

My thanks to you for the comments you posted on my profile page, glad you like 'The Unknown Child' - I do tend to throw in the odd few anti-war pieces, along with less serious items!

Best wishes, Dave

Hi Joy

Thanks for those kind words

I find your writing refreshing with lots of potential for one so young. most people will identify with the feelings you express, at sometime or another

"I like" That what will almost survive of us, is love

the length of time one is held in others affection
being measured by how big a pain in the arse, you were, or are.

Have gone into your names origins?

Did you know To become a Claypool. you need to be puddled.

Hi Joy,

And welcome to WOL! Hope you enjoy it here. The folks are (mostly!) friendly and helpful. If you feel like diving in at the deep end why not post a few comments on work that you like? It's usually a good way to get feedback/responses to your own stuff. Have fun - whatever!
