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,

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!

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

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..

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

'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.

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

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,

Hi Cynthia, just popping by to wish you a Happy New Year x
Fri 29th Dec 2017 07:58
Thank you so so much for your generous comment on my profile Cynthia. It meant more to me than you can imagine 💕💫

Thanks Cynthia - - - hope you had a good Christmas.
Fri 22nd Dec 2017 21:24
Thank you for you comment on my poema , very kind word. I'm really grateful that you found enjoying it.
I read some of your poems they really beautiful.
Fri 22nd Dec 2017 01:21
I love "Thrall". Tommy

Ha ha - isn’t it?!
Thank you - wishing you the same. 😘

Thanks Cynthia, seasons greetings to you too!

Thanks so much for commenting on Renewed (Soon). ^_^
It's a message to one's inner strength, but at the same time, it's a message from me to a personal friend who has gone through hell and is slowly regaining himself. Of course, like you mentioned, it can be a reminder to everyone that they can get through whatever and be stronger for it.

Hi Cynthia. So kind of you to comment on my photos ! The coloured one is the old git and the other is the young suavo aged 20. Hard to spot the difference I know! I thought it was moody and in fact an early selfie taken with a self timer(the predecessor of the umbilical version). Bless yer.
Mon 27th Nov 2017 16:46
Cynthia, you were right. I got it wrong. I appreciate all comments and corrections. I am grateful that you take time to review my work. With gratitude. Keith (Najd)
Fri 24th Nov 2017 21:30
Many thanks Cynthia.
This one is an updated rehash previously blogged. Crudely exposing me to be an 100% none believer.

Oh and bye the bye- here's no 90,000 and 90,000 more ××
Sat 18th Nov 2017 17:27
No Cynthia you're not wrong. What I was enquiring in regards was as to what was 'sworn by It: That we are both Ĺïbřāņś.
Thu 16th Nov 2017 19:43
'It had to be. I swear it 'had to be!'
Cynthia what is your above post in regard?
Thu 9th Nov 2017 21:17
I'm flattered by your kind words for my poetry, and am so grateful you took the time to check out my measly writing/profile. It means a lot to me as someone just beginning to share!
Your writing is captivating and inspiring, as is your biographical story.
Don't be afraid to really dig into more of my poems, they need the critism!
Thank you again,
A fellow Libran and friend,
Fri 3rd Nov 2017 20:35
Thanks a ton Cynthia for your kind words on my poetry "I wish.. But". 😃
I read your poetry- The parting. It is so beautifully written where all the words are carved in perfect combination of emotions, rhythm.
Happy Writing and Reading,
Fri 3rd Nov 2017 12:58
Yes that's me in the photo. Happy with a G&T and a suntan. I miss the heat already and it's only November! I am off to Santorini in July and already counting the days :) x
Sat 28th Oct 2017 21:16
That's so nice that you took the trouble to check my profile, thank you Cynthia. I hope in a small way it fleshes out what i'm generally trying to say on WOL! After a couple of years at this lark I am still surprised by lovely comments and try to offer a spark to other writers. We need to make a daisy chain and dance around poetry after all.
Sun 15th Oct 2017 20:31
I want to thank you again for your positive response to my poems. Your comments on my recent one really made my day, especially the fact that you came back for a second read. I really do appreciate the time you take to offer encouragement on WOL. When I receive a comment from you, I am sure that I have got it right :)
Sun 15th Oct 2017 01:42
Hello Cynthia. I've read a lot of your poetry tonight. Decided to. I like 'Hurricane' and 'The parting' a lot, pithy, focused, precise - though I'm not a descriptivist myself - but i think 'Dream footer' would benefit from being must less first person. I think it could be a great poem - reworked.
Thu 5th Oct 2017 17:04
Wow your first sample "The parting" is so poignant. I can't count the number of nights I have laid alone, remembering sweet nothings that still mean everything. Thank you for sharing, and thank you for your comment on my work "One Moment". You're an inspiration!
Sat 30th Sep 2017 21:41
Hi Cynthia. Thank you for welcoming me back. Life has kind of got in the way of writing. I miss it though. When inspiration comes, I feel happy again. I hope you are well.
Sat 30th Sep 2017 17:56
I have enjoyed your poems, especially 'To fellow poets' and 'Hurricane'. You have great talent.
Thank you for your comment to me.
Yes, that's my photo.
Sat 2nd Sep 2017 12:15
Phew! Thankyou for expanding on your earlier comment, Cynthia. I feel hugely reassured!
I'm very grateful that you have taken the time to think deeply about something and then the trouble to put your thoughts out there to be read.
Very much appreciated.
Fri 1st Sep 2017 09:30
I’m grateful for your comment on my Profile page and appreciate the time and effort you spent in contacting me.
I have a sneaky feeling that I am having my wrist most deliciously slapped – although for the life of me I am unable to work out why!
A pleasurable experience all the same! Thankyou.
Thu 31st Aug 2017 17:12
Thanks for your comments Cynthia, I'm glad you liked the poem and my biog. I think the word you're looking for to describe the profile pic might be "drunk" :D
It looks like you're a regular at WoL Sale, so I hope I'll see you there in November when I'm one of the guests.
Fri 18th Aug 2017 18:05
Thankyou for you kind words - about my poem and my poetry group!
It is great fun having a monthly poetic get-together but I think I'm probably more highly valued as an organiser than as a poet - but hey, I'll take whatever appreciation I'm given in life!
Wed 16th Aug 2017 15:16
You left some nice comments on my poems, thank you for taking the time 😃. I really do appreciate it.
