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. 😦

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.

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

Thank you for a warm welcome Cynthia.?

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?

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!

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

"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,
Thu 6th Sep 2018 08:36
Ciao from Italy!
This is Loly Monreal from Mexico married with an italian. We have two girls.
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
Sat 18th Aug 2018 18:51
Cynthia thank you for your over-generous comments on "Sources". I view any recognition from yourself as gold dust, so thank you again.

Hi Cynthia, that sounds interesting. Best send it to WoL's editor Mike Took:
I look forward to reading and thanks for thinking of me. All the very best, Colin.

Thanks Cynthia, glad you like the poem, and again it's nice to hear your thoughts on it ?

Thank you for your comments on You Held Me With Your Tears..

Thank you for your comments..appreciate you stopping by. ?

Thankyou for your welcome on my profile. I am pleased to have found 'you lot'. Been feeling intellectually deprived down here. You'll have to forgive any 'putting-my-foot-in-it' comments I might make. 'I'm just a lowly poet trying to learn the ropes' ... and sometimes have trouble controlling my mind.
Thankyou for interacting
Mon 28th May 2018 16:26
'taking the piss' Cynthia? I would never knowingly 'take the piss' ? this was an exercise in trying to create an archaic looking language to fit the archaic looking poem of a crows perspective on life. It was easily achieved using a phonetic translater - which uses emphasis on the words stresses - so reading it aloud is exactly the exercise needed to make it work - the 'translation' was more for those who simply tried to read it - rather than use the phonetics.
Glad you liked it

yes - a sonnet - I like to write in traditional poetry forms now and again - it sooths the political beast in me ? glad you liked 'the beast beneath the beck' I appear to be in a fantasy/myths vein at the moment. Hope you're keeping well
Mon 14th May 2018 22:34
I would love to be able to come to Sale on Tuesday but alas I have a prior commitment for that night which I can't wriggle out of. Sorry about that. Hopefully I will see you at the next word central if you are there.
Wed 4th Apr 2018 16:01
Thanks Cynthia for sparing your time to stop by my profile.
Your kind suggestion is very much appreciated!
Sun 1st Apr 2018 11:42
Cheers Cynthia. Thanks for your comments re "Plans on hold".
I use the capitalisation of the third person singular as not to weigh down the line with a period.
Sat 31st Mar 2018 15:05
many thanks for commenting on the rhinoceros piece Cynthia - I appreciate it
Tue 20th Mar 2018 12:28
Cynthia poetry is what you say it is, it does not have to rhyme nor make sense- North American natives' chant wordlessly to summon up thier gods. Tommy xx
ps keep up your excellent work. TC

Mon 5th Mar 2018 10:37
This is so clever- deserved three readings before I was happy with my giving it proper attention.
Haven't seen you in ages. I hope all is well. Or am I wrong? I could have sworn I recognised the name from years ago. But your profile does not seem to bear this out."
Indeed it has been years!
First, the loss of the email with which my original blog (which is still floating around here at WOL!) was linked; hence the loss of access to said blog. Life then gets in the way of all sanity; and now an attempt at reconstruction and navigating the poetic waters again.
My gratitude for your kind words. Trusting all is well with you as well.
Feeling a little older and a bit more battered.
Such is life. :_)
See you round the site,
