I got one too.. Looks like it was everybody... If they emailed everybody even by cut and paste - it must have took ages, but yeah, it looks like they have been removed now... x

You're welcome :) I don't think you were around when we had the poet who posted shoe adverts in broken english. It was a hoot!

thanks Isobel :-)

I think we all got one. I think she must have slipped through the net, pretending she was a poet. As far as I can see, she has now been removed.
ooh, thank you! Glad it's not just me, i seem to attract oddities and ball aches!! x

and not a bucket in sight-haha+1
if your writing gets much sexier
I might have to invest in another pacemaker
your saucy poems already broke the first one!

i like your opinion on Explorer, it helps to know how a poem comes across because sometimes we put parts of ourselves in them that we're not fully aware of, so thankyou.

Some lovely images here Kealan and the aforementioned mystery has me re-reading - nice one.

it took me about 15 yrs to write the 400, so if you're doing 50 a year then you are doing a lot better than me !
sometimes I couldn't write anything for months then half a dozen all at once :)

If only it were so! Life doesn't seem to get very heroic these days. I like this, interesting and sad too somehow. I don't know if it's good or bad when imagination takes you away from the real mundane world - good I guess. I remember having to do the washing up when I was 7 cos mum and dad had chicken pox (which they got from me.) I pretended all the knives and forks were people and they'd drown if I didn't rescue them from the washing up bowl! It made an adventure of it.
Thu 25th Aug 2011 08:54
Hey, well done Graham - I loved your ghost poem. Re the radio redruth thing, I haven't heard it myself as they seem to have stopped putting their previous progs on their version of iplayer. It was fun to do though!

Ah -- apologies, Larisa -- hope my reference to Russian caused no offence -- I had a friend , a long time ago, Sveta, who came from Kiev. and I recall she was very proud of being Ukrainian, as opposed to Russian, even before Glaznost and Perestroikha -- she taught me a (very) little Russian -- I believe she married a Russian prof. at Durham University ... sadly, we lost touch over 30 years ago. I also had a Polish girlfriend, in my very early youth, called Danka (Danuta) -- many happy memories! -- I loved her mum's cooking!

I got a bit carried away
with me little self
and I didnt want to offend you
despite knowing you can take a joke.
but I will give you a clue-
its to do with the 'bucket' we mentioned.
I thought of the song-
'theres a hole in my bucket...etc
and how useful that hole could be-lol!
best regards Lynn.

Aw, Stef, I shall be forever wondering what you deleted now! Thanks a lot xx

Hmmm ... nice. It kinda reminds me a little bit of the start of Anna Karenina, but from Mr.Oblonsky's viewpoint! Is that your Russian blood showing through, Larisa?

Hi David, thanks for your comment on Nectarine. Certainly heat-weariness, if not world weariness! I suppose it's about age, too. I'm always a little suspicious of poems I write on holiday about where I'm staying ... postcard poems, I call them. But I enjoyed doing it. Also enjoyed giving your poems from In The Distance a proper read while I was out there, too.

IMO this is really good social commentary.
For my money it is poetic, yet stated and correctly tough and edgy.
If it was much more poetic it would feel less stated,less real and fail.

Subject aside- the language is good to my ear and seems oddly a little reminiscent of sprung rhythm and Hopkins- subject aside :)
The subject...erm, it seems honest as opposed to depressing or racy. It could have been either and less. But to my mind the context made it- honest.

Ann- it's not autobiographical, thank goodness.Yes, I'm not wholly convinced by those lines. They maybe belong in another poem.
Philipos - I like Betjeman, though it's not at all fashionable to say that, is it?
John - I have, John, and I know what you mean.
Francine. What the last line tries to convey are those mostly futile efforts to recapture something long dead by returning to "where it all began". The more I think about it the less it works! Ha!
Dave - "closes with a snap" - is that a pun?

Glad you liked New Yorkers, John. I get a lot of my knowledge of history from the works of Bernard Cornwell. I'd just finished reading The Fort, about the defence of Majabigwaduce, which prompted me to do the poem.
