doing fine, now that I'm home
the hospital was a death trap.

Thank you Tom, I take pleasure in your enjoyment...
I am glad I made an impression with my first post...I admit that was my desire.
I must say...and this is no lip service
Your samples are exquisite
The pot of my emotions are stirred
And you are the culprit...
Renee By a Thread is incredibly poignant.

marriage isn't perfect
but the data shows married people live longer
and are overall happier
so that poem "Making Allowances" was my ode to marriage

thanks Tom Alexander
(or is it Alexander Tom?)
anyway, I will take your words to heart
and deal with this in a positive way,
after all we must support our doctors
who are unhappy if they cannot do multiple"tests"
to find out if you are worth doing surgery on.

The beard poem was just all in fun
I see from your photo
you really don't have much of a beard
so you have nothing to worry about.
No birds in beard for you!

Thank you for the like!

Hi Tom - thanks for the reasoned response to my message about
statues, plus The Guardian's slavery connection..
I see your point about the statues - but maybe that should apply to all
personal memorials when taking offence is such a fashionable indulgence these days.
Historically, there are many countries with empires in their
centuries of existence but no one (except the barbarians of Daish)
would sanction the destruction of the edifices that survive. Indeed, what would we be able to make of the past had that been the case.
No Rome/Italy as we know it; ditto no Athens/Greece and so much
else across the lands once held by the various empires of recorded history.
Once started, where to stop?

Hello Tom - when there seems to be "understanding" and even
sympathy for the assaults on statues with a perceived connection
with slavery here in the UK, it is salutary to be told that that bastion
of the liberal position in this life - The Guardian (formerly The
Manchester Guardian) was, according to a reliable source of knowledge, founded by cotton trader John Taylor and gave unqualified support to the Confederacy in America's Civil War,
reprinting its propaganda and attacking slave liberator Abe Lincoln.. Here's an example:
"It was an evil day both for America and the world when he (Lincoln)
was chosen President of the United States" - 10 October 1862.
Would there be understanding and sympathy if the BLM made an
assault on the offices of that newspaper citing its links to slavery?
Would it be seen as a "good day"?
History always has something to teach us - and not always "of the

Hi Tom your samples are some of the best poetry I've read in an age.
I have much catching up to do... Glad I found you.
Sat 13th Jun 2020 19:02
thank you for dropping your kind words on my profile. your poems are amazing , will definitely read more. kd

Tom, thank you for your comment. I am encouraged by your words. Reminiscing provides an enormity of space from one’ personal experience of life of life itself. Are you still using your fountain pen? Thanks again. Keith

He has a new photo
out of the blue
appears he has
a new hairdo,
Like a rooster cock
looks like a sudden wind

What happened to Tom?
He left the beach
and is now in Lockdown
in his studio apartment.
Life was a Beach!

Thanks for your comment on "Windows".
It's too bad we had to shut down the world to deal with this Virus.
thank the Chinese for that!
Fri 20th Mar 2020 23:06
The Sandman - thanks Tom. Will eventually get around to reading your file of promising material. Blessings. P. 👍

I could if I wanted to
write a poem about that photo
the beached boat
the blue water cove
and that lone figure leaning
on the boat as if he stopped to
watch the time go by
or wait for the sunset
i could write a poem about it
but i'll leave that up to you
paint a poem!
Thu 19th Mar 2020 22:50
you are too flattering.
I hardly know what to say.
thanks for the kind words and
for that beautiful photo.
or is it a painting?
Blue Sea, White shore.
Wed 18th Mar 2020 10:46
am proud you responded to "Some"
not all, but some.
also glad you got out of those wet sneakers
and now are up on dry land.-
get in that boat and sail away!
Sun 15th Mar 2020 04:58
Hi Tom Thankyou for your comments my mind is like a whirlwind if I don’t write things down I forget as soon has I start writing memories come floating back . Good or bad I just hope I can keep on writing love Wendy .
Mon 17th Feb 2020 11:25
In the photo, are you checking your watch?
you still have time to turn your life around.
I am back. Now that wasn't so bad, was it?
Sun 16th Feb 2020 15:56
Tom - I appreciate your kind response to my comment on DB's recent poem. In an age that appears to indulge in negativity of various
sorts, I like to recall an old song from way back that has the line
"If i can help somebody...". Not a bad thing to bring to mind at times
Good luck to you !

I'll be gone for two days.

News about shoes Tom - thanks for such a quick response. Encouraging. P. 👍

Thanks for the comment on my first poem! I'm very new here. Used to write a lot of poetry as an emotional teenager but I sort of lost my way with it.
I like 'Why Poems', it's very relatable!
Mon 3rd Feb 2020 11:36
Thank you for your comments on "Nut & Bolt".
what a wonderful thing to say.
Mon 3rd Feb 2020 11:34
Glad you liked "Retirement Village"
which was not really a poem
but more a rant with satire in mind.
Somehow I got away with it,
it was not deleted,
and I am still logged into this site,
a site for sore eyes!
Thu 23rd Jan 2020 17:16
2025 - thanks Tom - glad you liked some turns of phrase. P.

These poems are only scavenged
it's all that I can manage,
some of them make you grimace
most hope that they 'are finished!
Tue 7th Jan 2020 12:34
Thanks for reading my Honking poem!
We need more Honking poems.T
there are just not enough Honking poets!
Sat 4th Jan 2020 22:18
In the attic of your mind
in dark corners find
a hidden spot,
but be careful with
what is recalled
there's things up there
just as soon forgot!
Sat 28th Dec 2019 11:35
Hello Tom. wink.
Tue 24th Dec 2019 12:20
Thanks Tom of the Sea,
I am flattered.

Wishing you a very Happy Christmas Tom, Enjoy yourself!
Fri 20th Dec 2019 05:12
thank you Tom with wet shoes
for reading "Men In Homes".
It might be depressing
but we will all be there
sooner or later.
Wed 11th Dec 2019 22:58
very good Tom.
You saved a book!
now leave another
for someone else...
Sun 8th Dec 2019 03:03
enjoyed "Why Poems"
Sat 7th Dec 2019 12:33
'Why Poems?' - Lovely work.
Thu 21st Nov 2019 04:37
Thanks Tom for reading
"You left before I could say Goodbye"
i think it could apply to many situations
and many people.
Haven't we all expressed that sentiment
at some point in our lives?
Thu 14th Nov 2019 10:22
Liked your poem
thought it was neat,
don't step on your
Blue- toed feet!
Mon 11th Nov 2019 15:11
must be soaked
do you have another pair
and dry socks?
