Hi Tommy, how you doing pal?
Thanks for your amusing note on my profile. It did make me laugh, as obviously you have realised that most of the time I have no clue. I do appreciate that humour, cheers.
I hope you are in rude health,

Hello Tommy, thank you for your support of my poem MISSING YOU. I don't post here too often. But have been inspired by friends to write.

Tommy, Thank you for your comment on my poem MY DREAMS. Sometimes my dreams are filled away. But I always keep hope alive. 💗

thnaks for the recent comments Tommy - hope you're keeping well

aye up Tommy - thanks for commenting on 'the collector and the collected'. George Orwell was a right boring bastard wasn't he? 😃

'oooh's' and 'aaahhhs', grunts and groans, whistles and chirps are language in common to us all. No need of complex voice patterns or organised grammar whatsoever for basic communication.
'conference a ready man' is a very apt expression, meaning, I take it, one who is 'working with other people to discuss and carry out a particular plan' of any kind.
Happy Easter, Tommy, to you and yours. I always enjoy your input.

I apologise for copying your hair style but I have saved a fortune by not going to the Barbers. However, what I have relinquished on my head I have cultivated on my face.

Tommy, please check your last poem and switch all the 'whom's to 'who' as in 'he who'. I know they're the very devil, but lots of people may surf WOL this week. And check 'thrall';it's an old word.
I so hope you're not pissed. I always enjoy your work.

Being another Libra, Tommy. Or did I get it wrong?
Mon 13th Nov 2017 14:30
It had to be. I swear it 'had to be!'
It's the scope: often particular, but always with an eye to the general 'game'. Librans move like pieces on a chess board, with 360 degree vision, seeing innumerable ways to get from A to Z. And there's no such direction as 'backwards'.
I'm not sure whether that makes actual sense, but I've got a general idea what I mean. To be honest, it kind of sounds like the pith of a poem. I might pursue it.
BTW, I really like that 'Bacon' quote in your Bio.

I totally agree with the idea of art being free. Especially poetry. I feel that if you force someone to pay for something that art no longer becomes the artist's but rather the buyer's. And I don't write poetry for anyone else but me (not to say I don't want others to enjoy it, but you know what I mean)

You voted Corbyn and you quoted Bill Hicks. What's not to love?
Tue 1st Nov 2016 08:12
Thank You Tommy for your comment on poem "Reflection". The more I revisit it...I realize that there is a lot going here with poem and photo meaning...conflation....not sure what to make of the shadow looking back at me...more to ponder! All was created pretty quickly and just thinking about the whole thing still...but Thank You!
Mon 6th Jun 2016 13:22
Hi Tommy, I enjoyed a read of your poems today. Hope to read more soon. Please do visit The Chocolate Poetry Club one day! Paul
Sat 7th May 2016 00:23
Thanks, once again, for the kind comments on 'Head In Hands' Tommy - I admit to be poorly read and hadn't heard of 'The Mezzanine' but having looked it up I can see where you're coming from with regards to the tone of this piece. I'm pleased it resonated with you - cheers mate
Mon 2nd May 2016 22:21
Well what can I say... From near relegation to winning a premier league title within 12 months. Fairytale ending. :)
Sun 1st May 2016 19:40
thanks for the comments on the 'Sun' *spits* piece Tommy - it's a worthless rag and should be shut down - and their petulant decision not to cover the hearing outcome should be the final nail in their sorry coffin
Fri 29th Apr 2016 14:15
Thanks for taking the time to read and comment on 'Sleep Peacefully at Last'. Much appreciated.
Thu 28th Apr 2016 23:03
Thanks for taking the time to comment on my page. I'm new! But...do you actually like us foxes or are you just being polite lol
Wed 6th Apr 2016 08:29
Hi Tommy, cheers for your comments on Scroungers. I like your profile piccie, and have to say that yes, I voted for Corbyn too.
Incidentally, I saw him in person yesterday giving a terrific speech at Harlow, pressing for all the important things for the majority, instead of the elite few. Power to the people!
Mon 14th Mar 2016 20:09
Hi Tommy, thanks for the compliment :-)
The photo was taken in my daughter's garden last summer, so no, haven't been anywhere that interesting lately! Lol.

Oh no! Really? I know I can be obscure but I thought this one was more accessible...hey ho! The whole or just parts Tommy?
Tue 2nd Feb 2016 21:17
F**k the government indeed - oops just swore x I like your poetry Tommy and you said it first in your Biography x
Tue 5th Jan 2016 18:04
Thanks again Tommy for reading & commenting in your wonderfully unique & insighful way Xx
Sun 3rd Jan 2016 21:21
Thanks Tommy - my mind is indeed like an attic - full of useless junk with the odd treasure hidden in the cobwebs! X
Wed 30th Dec 2015 11:05
Indeed! I'm sure we will
Wed 30th Dec 2015 10:49
Thanks for reading & commenting on my 'Guide' Tommy - I can tell you have good technique!! I have been known to send this poem to potential dates!
Tue 29th Dec 2015 20:43
Hi Tommy - your words strike home with me particularly your words about love - I shall enjoy reading more xx
Mon 28th Dec 2015 17:29
Hi Tommy, Yes, yes please :) Look forward to your suggestions !
Tue 22nd Dec 2015 21:00
.. " hello Tommy ... the joke beside the photo was that the girls names would be in Russian, but all attempts at copy/paste wouldn't print the letters .. just tried again - had to delete and re-do .. !! "

You are a man of many facets, sharply cut, like a fine diamond. Greetings of the Winter Solstice - the blessed promise of renewed warmth and light - to you and yours. Be safe. Be happy.
Sun 13th Dec 2015 14:25
Thanks for commenting on "my son,my love".
It's well appreciated:)
Sun 22nd Nov 2015 16:24
Thanks for your recent comment on my own page.
"Let us listen so that others might speak,

And long may it be so.

Your comeback is totally brilliant, utterly confusing, very cathartic. I shall treasure it.
The child in your photo is very beautiful, like the portraits of many mediaeval 'Mary's', all big, clear eyes and rosy lips in a pale face. It could be a boy, but same comment - no difference. And you don't look so bad yourself, of course.

Thanks for the (very heartening) comment on '...And Along Came Jeremy'. Cheers, Ledger

The lady will put a sock in it! :)
Fri 14th Aug 2015 14:04
You may Tommy. There is a similarity but you use your words so much better. I am not fishing for a counter compliment but credit where credit is due and it is a fact. My observation came from the two young lovers who sit, heads touching at my dining table pouring over their A level algebra. They had their first year results yesterday so I blogged in celebration! ;)
Wed 12th Aug 2015 23:16
Thanks for your comments on down the pub. I think I prefer witherspoons as opposed to the alternative.
Thu 2nd Jul 2015 20:26
Hi Tommy Thanks for comment on The Tea Time Bulletin.
Tue 30th Jun 2015 10:01
Tue 30th Jun 2015 09:40
Hi Tommy, I am starting to wonder why I bothered coming back. The site is riddled with 'poets' who do nothing but critisize the work of other poets!!!
There is nothing I hate more than people who think they are better than everyone!
If I disappear again, you'll know why!
Tue 23rd Jun 2015 14:11
Blimey Tommy Illegal Immigrants wasn't that bad was it?. Sorry, probably inappropriate levity there. I am just about to change the title of this piece as I think Illegal Immigrant is too clumsy and easy.
Thanks for your comment.
Fri 12th Jun 2015 12:30
thanks for the comments, tommy over my short little poem. this one is a short little poem this wrote for a friend to prove a point really but pleased you liked it.
Mon 8th Jun 2015 13:17
Hi Tommy. Thanks for the consideration but it was absolutely not necessary. I appreciate all comments, regardless. I only need to look at myself another 999 times to reach 2000 eh! xx
