As always, beautifully expressed, sad, and true.
At least your heart still holds words of love...
'Goodbye and welcome the new'...

Thanks for commenting on 'Madness.'
I'm particularly glad you think it raises questions. I'm attempting to allow readers their own thoughts and reach some kind of conclusions for themselves and with an open mind :-)

Oh! It's altered its appearance somewhat :-)
I loved this the first time i read it. To be completely honest i preferred the first version of lay out though.
I enjoyed the flitting words like a robin flitting from tree to shrub and back to tree. Lovely.x

Thanks for reading and commenting on 'Miles of Space Between Us' - I loved your interpretation of it. I hadn't thought of it as being about separation from my children, but when I re-read it myself in that light it made perfect sense, and could actually apply equally to many people in my life - both now and in the past. Particularly as I get older, I feel I want to hang on to the people I love a bit more - you lose people for all sorts of reasons and in all sorts of ways - and some of them leave huge holes in your life that are just not adequately filled by the cat.
Anyway - having said all that - I've actually removed the poem, but your input has been much appreciated.
Ps - the cat hates being hugged too

I appreciate your comments on my recent poetry Isobel. Thank you. Contrary to popular urban myths - I do enjoy them!

Thanks very much for reading and commenting on 'Miles of Space Between Us' - I know what you mean about the helplessness of bridging the gap ... very much the reason behind the poem. Your comments are always much appreciated, though I have now removed that poem.

Very evocative Janet. I liked the 'pushing at the scalp, thrashing at the walls' lines - it brings to mind the actions of madness.
I like the questions your poem raises - whether hidden within the madness, there aren't other forces at work. I've often wondered about the imaginary friends young children have and some of the things they appear to see.

Thanks for comments. I wasn't actually reading this one! I decided to do a stream of conciousness poem, so having stared out of the window for a while (it was a lovely night) I just said what came into my head, imagining how it would feel to dwell in that beautiful wilderness. So no written words! It was an experiment. :)

A really beautiful photo and a tender poem.
I followed in my mother's footsteps - smacked my kids till they knew who was boss, in the early days - there was never any need thereafter - and they don't resent me for it. I once went to a parenting class run by a rather religious lady (can't remember whether she was baptist or methodist). She used to wack her kids with a wooden spoon - it came as a shock to some of the other mothers! The gist of what she was saying was that children NEED boundaries - are lost without them. I guess we all have different way of putting those in place. A good bit of discipline wouldn't do the current society any harm though. ( she says jumping down from he soap box)

I think this is really lovely, Carole. I have a slight preference for the second version except that I would include the word "blissful" from the first.

Cancerian actually. If you must know I have highlights - but definitely mousy underneath, not yet grey:)- the grey ones get pulled out - very painful!
You are not ever going to get the piccie you are after Banksy - but I'd be fascinated to see yours!
Sat 20th Nov 2010 17:31
This is lovely Carole - it's hard to choose between the two - I do like the blissful moment of the first though - that moment of drifting off to sleep IS blissful. I'm a bit of an insomniac too so can appreciate this. A lovely conclusion - it does make you wonder why we all fear death so - nothing harder than life sometimes.

Hi - thanks for the comments on my sorry efforts (Happy eater).
all the best. B
Sat 20th Nov 2010 16:34
That's all it takes sometimes isn't it? A fleeting glance of something other, something beautiful co-existing in all this vastness. Moments like that inspire you with hope or at least make you appreciate the wonder of it all.
Lovely take on the theme Cynthia. x
Sat 20th Nov 2010 16:27
Haven't got a clue how to set up my own blog Carole. You aren't the first person to suggest I should write short stories though. I'm not sure if I could give much attention to a personal blog though - what I love about WOL is the community feel - the camaraderie, the banter, the feedback. Would that be diluted if I started posting elsewhere - I'm not sure. I'll have to do some research on where people blog and what they get out of it. Maybe that's something I'll think about in the New Year. Hope to see you around before then.

Well Gus - what can I say?
Oh how I adore your way of looking at the space theme - only you could do it! This is fun - and life affirming! We are all here for a reason - it's just a question of tapping into the reason that works for us. I think I over-think things sometimes. My next poem will be on rockets that boldly go...
Thanks for putting a smile on my face. x

Thank you for the comment Lynn. Its got some weak spots but it reminds me of the dreams that make us keep on searching.
