Candice, Dorothy, Julia and Graham,

Thank you for your kind comments on this poem. They are much appreciated. Graham, I also find great beauty in the colours of autumn but Spring is my month. I find autumn a little foreboding.

Thank you all
Keith

Brave poem - takes on what exists in the shadows🎊

Go tell the Riverman.


summer rains' quiet incantation, the animals come and go,

in the far-distant, the snow melts as the river flows;

time is a demon

the animals know.



It’s looking for you, y'know:

...in the abdomen – demon go

...in the albumin – demon go

... in the acumen – demon go

Very nice Ruth....

This ditty is brought to you by the letter F (if the writer can think of enough nice F words)

I'm a little F word
Not that F-ing word
I'm sweet and pure an innocent
I Flit in sky like Flird

(How'my doing?...not heard of a flird?...neither have I)

I Flitter round the Fir tree
Where can I rest my Feet?
I've Found a little Foothold
I'm F word, what a Feat

(Worthy of POTW?)....😎

A tree was enjoying a day with his forest friends,
But a strong wind builds up and his good day ends
All his leaves are blown off and he's left sad.
Naked with no leaves he feels leafless and bad.
He runs away from the forest and grieves.
His friends were distraught ,"He was absent without leaves."

Thanks Graham for that considered view. Of course, the relishing of quiet waters and the benefits that canalside greenery offer is a wonderful lesson in pace, and an antedote to the motorway rush. There is still life as you say, but it's not the grind of industry. To find a facsimile of that, a visit to Blist Hill and suchlike is a learning curve. I miss Fred Dibnah who seemed to embody much of the past.

Special Thanks to Rose, Cynthia, Adam and Do.Ro.Thy for reading and for your kind comments.

Yes Cynthia I definitely agree with you and understand that this isn't relatable to all, but we all do have an 'inner knowing' which is worthy of listening to.

I'm glad you 'got' this Adam, that was just the emotion I was hoping to evoke in a reader. Thanks for that.

Glad to see Little Typewriter take it's rightful place on centre stage at last! I loved the thinking behind how much certain letter keys have been used. I never knew that type writers needed oil. There was a craze a few years ago for a short time to attach an old typewriter keyboard to a modern monitor which quite a work of art!

Serious issue, I see it happen every day. And you can't just go tell a parent what to do with their child lest you seem paying or meddlesome and offend them...Unless they're really close friends but what about the rest?
Good point Don🎈

Truly excellent. To read this poem I have no need to look out of the window as your description saves me the energy. I do like the lines," and birds on a wire like black clothes pegs ".
Thank you for this

Look after your muse Vautaw. They are very special.

Before Thalia came along I had a rather flighty one. Admittedly I could have given her more attention (typical male says Thalia).

She deserted me in my hour of need one day. Took my bike and tripped off. Truly! See why you gotta look after them? The poem link shows my frustration at the time of need

Thank you for reading and commenting. I made another batch of juice today (I was not stung by a wasp this time thankfully). It is so sweet and satisfying that I wonder how we ever got to wine, the juice being so good before fermentation.

Trying to think of how to juxtapose this one with yesterday's poem on darkness. It might work to put them on facing pages or even try to put them left justified and right justified so some lines of one are read then some lines of the other. Or maybe just have them stand alone the two poles of my ever revolving outlook on existence. Hope you enjoy the read or I have provided audio for an easier journey.
