Beautiful picture above. I'm not sure I appreciate the symbolism. But I really do think it IS symbolism. The dark berries, being eaten or spat out? I'm really interested.

Your poem 'Celtic Memory' is a walk through the portal of time
Back to days of yore
The path is poetry... Yesterday, today tomorrow
and from henceforth for-evermore.
Great lines here and a passion for those Celtic Roots

who wants to hang around

they smell and
don't make any sense.
I know this from what people tell me.
I would never admit to it myself.

Hi Cynthia, it was very nice to read your comment about my profile. I have been off the site lately, but you teased me out again. EFIT is the method of getting likenesses for crime identification shown to witnesses etc. which replaced PHOTOFIT consisting of lots of pieces of a face overlaid based on their description. I think that was an older method pre digital age. In my case I used it as an illustration of conforming to expectations . I hope that is a help!
I hope you're well.

thanks for reading my poem.
yes, you can use it if you like.
maybe it will bring back a thought or two.
Words do that ya know.
That's why we fool around with them.
to get people to think and emote.
Sun 12th Jan 2020 11:13
thanks for reading my poem.
it ain't much.
but what do you expect
from an old codger
on his last good leg
my mind is about
the only thing
that still works without hurting.

Some good ideas in your sample piece you've shared. Perhaps you could shorten it as its maybe a bit long for my own personal tastes, but I did enjoy it. Welcome to Write Out Loud btw. I suspect this would go down well live if you ever chose to perform it. I co run one night in Manchester and I could see it going down well must admit, but anyway.. keep sharing

You are always a delight!
I'm 'not with it'. What does EFIT mean?
If I knew how to do it, I'd post a black and white photo of myself at twenty-five. I know you'd enjoy it, as I do yours: the older person shining through youth.

I'm so glad you're cruising some of the 'oldie-goldies'. I have enjoyed this site from Day 1.There weren't that many of us ten years ago, and many of us actually knew each other in person here in the north of England. It was a fine experience! Now, I'm ten years older, and not so social, and not sure if there still is an active poets' performing 'circle' in the Greater Manchester Arena. But I value the 'world venue' highly.

Thank you for your like.
I wish you well, and great things here at this site.
There are a few great poets here
and a few not so great.
The important thing is Roxy to write and read AND comment!
It is so uplifting to receive positive feedback. it will give a poet wings... inspiring them to write more.
You will find those that wish to help, and those that wish to dash.
Be an inspiration

In truth I have spent more time speaking to the dearly departed, or working for them, more than the living at times.
Some of my poetry has a direct connection to either private consultations, Spiritualists church services, Healing, or my day job.
All of which are undertaken under strict confidentiality.
Certain cold cases, long long past are a source of information that I have used to get some insight in to the criminal mind.
Anything current is never used in any fashion that would give any clues whatsoever as to that crime.
The poem I referred to you about this evening driving home from work is purely coincidental regarding your arrival to the site...
Actually I don't believe in coincidence... Synchronicity on the other hand, is another matter entirely.
I hope you enjoy "That fateful day" Jain.
Perhaps enjoy is not the Adjective to use.

As soon as I've done the tea I'm going to sit down and read everyone else's works, including yours. I never realised before how much I needed poetry in my life!

Hi Jain a huge welcome.
It is great to see you here at WOL.
I must say your pictures are masterfully created.
I wish I had the ability to paint or draw as well.
I named myself 'poemagraphic' and my intention was to have a photograph to accompany each poem... I have not done that on this site. It is in the pipeline for this year, along with some video and slide shows of both my poetry and photographs.
I am certain that I will gain some insight and inspiration from your work from what I seen so far.
I am looking forward to reading more of your poetry... and seeing more of the other artistic merits you have.
Mon 6th Jan 2020 17:00
Thank you for reading and commenting on 'Dying for your touch'
I somehow seem to have missed your musings all this time.
If we don't keep reading it is easy to miss some great poetry from people who never seem to post at the same time as us.
We have so many members however I only know a handful.
You will now be hunted down and watched every time I'm on here.
That will teach you to read my doggerel.
You may see that I can bark a bit if you look at some of blog posts
Just so you know... talking of dogging err. doggerel I mean,
My bite is far worse than my bark

Your natural warmth of personality is a WOL bonus to us all. Happy New Year!

In the attic of your mind
in dark corners find
a hidden spot,
but be careful with
what is recalled
there's things up there
just as soon forgot!

Don you might have read your version of it somewhere, but I specifically recall having seen the expression phrased as: A Picture Saves a thousand words. In other words, both of us could be right if there are 2 contexts. But thanx. Will check out the phrase elsewhere and if different to what I have just said will return to the arena. P.
