Thanks Hugh. I got this in mind after the pithy short comment from an audience member on "Question Time" about the absence of the
dredging of rivers and it brought back the memory of inaction
in this regard in the past. I seem to recall there was some dispute
over the placing of the mucky results on land adjacent to the rivers. Something about "chickens coming home to roost" comes to mind.

This is a very pleasurable example of how a poet's own hook and
bait can reel us in - and leave us with a smile of recognition.

A good theme, well expressed. I confess to wondering who decided
what plant is a "weed" and discarding it as being of little/no worth.
One might see that as happening in humanity.

I'm unsure whether I totally agree with Brian and Don. "Spreading
the gospel" by bringing to our attention creative writing from someone
else is surely part of the business of discovering other work. But
then it might also be argued that this could be done by inserting
a reference (as is done via links on numerous occasions on WOL -
no names, no packdrill) which leads us to find out another way.
Take your pick - but i for one took pleasure in this blog and its content.

It's a matter of opinion and as long as it is sparing then I see no problem with sharing another author's works. Yet I also see your view point as well.

Brian Mayon I actually laughed at your post. Perhaps your right. But I haven't felt inspired for a worryingly long time. And I was so struck by these aphorisms after reading some very old emails to a friend. I had completely forgotten this author even existed until today so I decided to share him with everyone here. Still I find your comments on my poetry or blog a little weird.
Thanks, Don. Like magnets we gravitate towards those that create tension and pull us closer.

Yet an attitude can come from a hard realistic view of reality. So who are we to criticise one man's negative view on life even if it contradicts the majority of other people's hope or wisdom.

Surely this site is for original personal pieces, not copy and pasting. What next...the Old Testament?
Mon 24th Feb 2020 22:16
To M.C Newberry I felt the same way there is a questionble pessimistic attitude that occasionally, perhaps (italics) over plays the hard truth of these aphorisms. But it is so occasional as to be forgivable.
I like it Candace..... 'I land' was clever....

Truth has very few friends
and those few are suicides.
I like this one the most even though the one about bread and paradise struck me as brilliant. This has a terrible depth to it that I relate to.

What's self-discipline? Is that why thing's ain't working?
Mon 24th Feb 2020 22:06
I find a quantity of these to be stimulating - but others are questionable in their intent and meaning. An example of the latter:
"As long as we think we are worth something, we wrong ourselves."
Profundity is one thing but I do not see this by seeming to suggest that thinking and self-worth are wrong (misplaced ?) in themselves.
As for -
"Flowers are without hope
Because hope is tomorrow and flowers have no tomorrow".
I'll rebut this with -
"When life has little left to show,
Remember, still the flowers grow".
But, all in all an entertaining list of thoughts to make us think - no bad thing. 👍👍

Wonderfully wise words, here, MC, beautifully encapsulated in six inspirational lines.
Thanks for sharing them.
However, in this modern world that encourages 'spend, spend, spend', my parents' post-war legacy indoctrination of 'save for a rainy day' regularly presents me with a certain guilt in over-subscribing to your good advice, here. 🙂

Johnny this was packed with fun almost overflowing
I started reading not knowing, where on earth it's going
In my mind I watched the Misses talking from the fly
I almost wet myself, tears ran from my eyes.
But when I pictured poor old Jack with her panties around his knees
The sight was so hilarious my heart began to seize
This poem was truly heart-stopping written with such care
You brighten up my whole day when I see you’ve posted here.
