than I did!

Thank you my beauty 😘. I will follow your words of wisdom. Hopefully I will learn to appreciate art one day and leave meaningful and insightful comments on your work!

Thank you for your words of welcome Cynthia. I'm eager to prove my mettle among a group of people who write such beautiful thoughts. I like what you think. I like how you think. There's a positivism and lack of cynicism that I see which is very refreshing. Otherwise poets are all doom and woe.

Hi Cynthia, Thanks for your message.
Yes, I'm still working with children at the school, although Lockdown has made it very difficult. Only the most vulnerable can attend.
I enjoy reading your poems very much and thank you for your comments on mine.

Thank you Cynthia for the comment on 'Doing it gingerly', glad you enjoyed it.

What a lovely comment to see from you Cynthia. Thank you so much. And right back at you. I hope you're safe and sound somewhere! 😃

Hi Cynthia - long time no speak and thanks for the generous comments (Foreword etc) so much appreciated. I am actually ploughing through some past career experiences and of life itself, towards a different kind of anthology. Perhaps one day I will produce another printed offering having already done so at various other times…. 👍

You brought memories back with your poem of when my granddad who as a lover of oil paints painted a magpie in all it's glory.
Thanks for your like on Pushing Boundaries.

Thank you Cynthia "Bell"
I know that's not right
but it has a nice
ring to it!
Thu 16th Apr 2020 23:23
Thanks glad I made you laugh
what was so good about our session is when main picture of the poet speaking changed to another - - - sometimes it showed an empty chair maybe they could not wait for the break!

Hi Cynthia, thanks for commenting on Strangeness and Experience. It was actually inspired by your poem The Waiting Room (and my throw-away comment reply to you). It got me thinking and then came out as this poem. 😃 So - doubly thank you! Tom.

I'm not exactly sure what you mean by 'challenging' but I'm taking it as a compliment! Thanks for your post on my page.
I hope you have a wonderful day.

Hi Cynthia - Promises - thanks for commenting on this in a positive way - I did wonder how it might go down with the readership. P. 👍

Hi Cynthia - Wraiths - just my nowadays style of presenting I guess - reads better than it looks on screen. Thanks for noticing. Blessings. P. 👍

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.
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.
Tue 24th Dec 2019 10:28
Wishing you a very Happy Christmas Cynthia! Stay Blessed.
Mon 9th Dec 2019 21:46

i look forward to reading more of your work.

Happy New Year, Tommy. I almost detect the glimmer of optimism lately.

Apologies that I haven't referred to your comment sent, Wed 7th Aug 2013 12:15! Oh dear. It was for the :Hands of Ankh". I wrote this piece after a dream in a language unknown to me. Thank you for your sensitive comment.
Love & Light.

Thought fairies - so unpredictable - here one minute and scarpered the next. What's so irritating is when they don't come back at all having allowed something to chase them off. P. 😦
Sun 13th Oct 2019 10:27
Having your poems
I had to blush.
they seem to deal
with lots of lust
I take my leave
sign off i must
for fear from pant
my lance will bust.
Sat 12th Oct 2019 17:04
Cynthia, I thank you for the welcome.
Mon 30th Sep 2019 13:57
Aww thank you Cynthia. That made me feel all fuzzy. I drifted away for a while but I'm back with a vengeance now 😃 So good to see you're still here too. I joined in 2009 - a whole decade of WOLing. Here's to many more, for both of us! Tx
Mon 23rd Sep 2019 22:35
thanx for commenting on True Nature Cynthia - glad you liked it 😃
Sat 21st Sep 2019 13:24
Thanks Cynthia, glad you liked 'Landing' 😃
Mon 2nd Sep 2019 06:33
Thank you for the warm welcome, Cynthia.
I already feel at home among WoLers.
Sat 31st Aug 2019 07:18
Your writing is remarkable...
Thank you for sharing.
And yes...balance....and self-challenging....and playful....
You intuit quite a bit.
Thanks for being here.

Thank you for a warm welcome Cynthia.?
Sun 14th Jul 2019 17:34
Thank you for commenting on Reaching Out Cynthia. Have added a brief lament about it on my recent page. Blessings. P. ?
Tue 25th Jun 2019 16:37
that poem was the first thing you thought of?
get some coffee first.
I appreciate your comments.
hope I can live up to your expectations.
Did you do the painting of the girl in the red dress?
Thu 20th Jun 2019 22:25
Hi Cynthia. Thanks for welcoming me to WOL. As far as old geezer goes, I'm bellysliding down the back side of the hill, green grass stains on the inside of my lower lip and loving every minute of it. I dig the diversity of style in your samples - you won;t be pinned down. Look forward to reading more and more and more.
Sat 18th May 2019 18:28
Necessity. Of course. And a sharp mind apparently. I shall cherish and vow to honor and abide by your wisdom, my lady!
Fri 17th May 2019 19:45
Hi Cynthia! That sounds yummy! Actualluy when i said I liked to eat ice cream all year long I ment all year long during all FOUR years of my little affair with Mr. C ! I'd say be careful with the weight but in all honesty Cynthia those ice-creams got me out of bed into my clothes and out of the house so screw it. Do what makes you happy! When you finally make it to the finish line that's when you'll start building your life all over. If you have an extra pound or two, the hell with it, you'll lose them in no time and if not then there will be just more of you to love! No big deal!
If you are referring to my the one that says: "Art is the imaginary solution to a problem that is unsolvable in real life." then yes it is originally mine. It is what I discovered when I first started writing. I have many a short story written that have a matching cross to be born! I remember the first one, I wrote it in the middle of a sleepless night. I fell asleep as soon as I finished the last word!
Thanks for stopping by on my profile! Be strong! Get well! ?
P.S. Your Bio is astounding! How is it possible for one person to do ALL that??? Really, tell me your secret!
Wed 1st May 2019 20:14
Liked your poem '1ast Chemio Session', and as I assume it is autobiographical, am so happy for you to be out of the wood. I had a similar experience 20 years ago, but got off with just radiotherapy, and have been in the clear ever since. Treatment seems to be so much more effective now. All the best!
Tue 12th Mar 2019 16:02
Hi Cynthia, thanks so much for the comment on Letter From The Lake. You're spot on, typo on wry/rye, doh! Have corrected. Glad you enjoyed it, I watched the film Withnail & I and then this poem just came straight out afterwards. Hope it doesn't ruin the mystery to reveal the process ? Thanks as always, Tom. x
Sun 17th Feb 2019 02:53
thanks for getting back to me
i did as you suggested and have a guest slot booked for june
i hope i get to see you there and i'm sending positive healing thoughts your way
Mon 11th Feb 2019 10:27

"I tire of this conscious senility'... and so do we, sometimes, Tommy, so do we. And 'humour by disguise' is no humour at all if no one recognises it. You write by code for an elitist reader; if that is your aim, so be it.
But that is a terrible thought - to be in 'conscious senility'. Who with intelligence would deliberately induce senility? The reality of senility is heartbreaking, especially for those who witness it and can do nothing. The victim is powerless to care."
Cynthia my references to "conscious senility" is in regards to my recent brain haemorrhage. Not deliberate but dysfunctional brain operations. Tommy

Thanks Cynthia for your remarks re "untitled". I forgot to leave one and once you commented upon the fact I let it lay. Give me a title and I will oblige.
Sun 23rd Sep 2018 15:56
Dear Cynthia, Thank you for the warm welcoming words! I love your suggestion of being a giver to become a receiver.
My mother named me, and her love and thought is bonded with my name. Thank you liking it.
Tapashree has Sanskrit roots, and may be interpreted in a few ways. I prefer to believe it means "the soft glow of endurance".
Tapa means endurance.
Shree means Diffusing radiance, beauty, prosperity...
It may also be interpreted as the "beauty of heat" with Tapas (heat) and Shree.

Thank you so much for putting into words in sucha a beautiful way what the soul has to say.
In addition to your poetry, I want to thank you for being Cyanne's mom, my dear castmate in Up With People.
I appreciate and thank your legacy.
Much love from Mexico,

Cyanne was my Castmate in "Viva la gente" we were together last year when all the beautiful family visit us here in Trentino,Italy . In this days we think very much about them because of the great memories harvesting on our wine-yard. All together were a strong hard working team!!!
I wish you all the best and think about you. reading your poems I will learn more English for sure ?
Kisses and hugs on you way from all of us with great love and admiration!
Thu 6th Sep 2018 02:29
Cynthia, your daughter Cyanne, my dear friend and castmate from Up With People, shared your poetry blog with me, and I love your work! I’m an old English teacher, and I love the lush imagery in your poems - such rich colors and beautiful sounds! I plan to read a few each day and maybe I’ll comment again! ❤️ Jennifer Rabold
