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.

Regards,

Cynthia

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)

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!

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

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

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!

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.

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! ;)

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!

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.

Hi Tommy. Thanks for your comments on 'Repellent Words'. I am a huge fan of George Carlin so I know the passages you refer to. Honestly, I wasn't referencing him here although there may well be a subliminal inspiration. I loved his performance, always edgy and uncomprimising. Such a shame he's gone. Again, thanks for your comments, much appreciated.

aye up Tommy - sorry - been absent (without leave) last couple of weeks - so only just seen your comment on 'song of the wandering' - aye - as you say, similarities with migrant voyages for centuries - and they will end up, if they survive, being taken advantage off in western towns and cities - as sure as night follows ay. thanks for your comments

Tommy,

Thank's for your comment's on 'Bank Holiday' much appreciated.

Being the son of a Preacher I just can't resist those biblical references. I should try harder to find alternatives I suppose, they just don't carry the same weight though.

Thanks again.

In reply to your comment on 'My God' Mr TC, no need to think too hard. The soul destroying experience of internet dating, the isolation of technology and being subjected, as a child, to a host of spaghetti westerns where 'hey blondie' was god.

Too crap to blog but you did ask!

Just for you Mr TC
(Top Cat tune keeps springing into my head)

Winky Face

Emotion without words
How does that work?
Display happiness with
A smiley face
Slighty abuse
Or amuse with
A winky face

Show sadness with
A downturned U
When you are so
Downturned
U don’t even know U
Are U

;)

On second thoughts I might blog. One glass of wine and it's starting to look ok ;)
