Re-balloon. Oh no! You'll have to do much better than that! I want a rose with it too. :-)

My niece sends balloons up into the sky for each grandparent on anniversaries of their deaths. She did it at the funerals too. Much nicer than throwing soil in the ground. :-)

I defy anyone to like the woman who left me with a very bad back after half an hour of her 'exercise' dvd. It was actually a torture DVD and as such - I decided to go all 'poetic' on her in a sort of evil vengeful way. I think I made my point clear.
She is pure evil, John YOU HAVE BEEN TRICKED.

Janet, this is really, really good. I didn't equate colour-dyes with actual 'false colour' but I could be wrong. For me, it seemed as though the idea was far more encompassing.

Peter would like to point out that he has never played with a Tiny Tears doll. I say this as some take my poems as actual experience, they are not. They are emotional ideas, played out with poetry.

Hi Damian,it would be picky to challenge the imagery in the first four lines, when you you leave us with a wonderful metaphor in line 6. As a tribute it's very resonant. Are the dates accurate (98-07)?

Thankyou for your comments on H1N1influenza, perhaps I should have added a bit about the eye( the great eye of Sauron that is)!! I enjoyed your prose above but am particularly drawn to Lifelines. The picture of the woman knitting and the poem are exact, did the pic spur the poem I wonder.

Hi Tommy,
An interesting thought - but I'm not sure that the statistics bear out your assertion! Being the somewhat curious and pedantic git that I am I did a quick count up and calculation on the ratio of males/females registered on this site. According to Paul's latest post:

http://www.writeoutloud.net/public/newsgroupview.php?NewsThreadsID=178&NewsGroupsID=29

it seems that there are 567 poets registered. By my reckoning (and it's quite difficult - allowing for non-gender-specific profiles and possible aliases) it would appear that the ratio is approximately 360/200 men/women, or alternatively 1:0.55. Of course this could mean lots of things - even that there are more women poets out there, but that men have bigger egos! Surely not? :-)
Regards,
A.E.

Tommy I think this is powerful It captures so many facets, time, place, relationships, in a simply stated short format. As other observers have noted of similar poems, it's a short story in itself. I hope Lizzie liked it.

I like this poem Janet,I easily identify with your words. I hope you don`t mind but maybe if you replace friend in two lines with she /he your poem would be more emotive.

" She/he departed in a different way."
"Before she/he departed---
Punctuation Janet, helps the flow.
Good work

Hi Sian,
I haven't seen you around for a while. Came late to this one. The last line is a very telling observation, I guess there are as many kinds of love as there are people. We don't always get the kind we expect - or want. Thanks for your comments on my scribbles, the are always very welcome and appreciated.

An uplifting poem Janet - a new day often does that for us - though I think it may take a few for me LOL . It feels good to read an upbeat poem and I like the analogy of dyed hair returning to its natural state.
