Thanks for commenting on my space poem. If I added another line it would have to begin with the letter S or D. Otherwise my capital letters at the beginning of each wouldn't spell 'space' :-)
Get it? xx

Thanks for your support of mi brackets in Post Past! Glad you enjoyed it. x
Wed 17th Nov 2010 18:01
Yeah - para - bet it's all that wacky backy - if you've got too much, just mail me some :)

Hi - Dave's poem - sorry, I don't know what you're banging on about there - but you're more than welcome to the Cpt Kirk joke - it's not mine anyway :)
Mon 15th Nov 2010 17:56
Continuing to enjoy your poems, Laura. No, I've not written about my "nod of recognition" yet but I am sure it will come along one day - ah, sweet catharsis! x
Sat 13th Nov 2010 13:04
Thabks v. much for taking the time to comment and it's good to be welcomed with a D (for dickhead I suppose).
Fri 12th Nov 2010 14:24
HaHa - like a red rag to a bull, this subject :)
I've had a fair old spectrum girlfriend-wise; one thought I was an unspeakable pervert, some went along but were non-committal & two (in particular) were literally "game for anything". ahh - happy days !

what about rebranding that marge that's made with Omega 3 fish oils...
"I can't believe it's not fanny!!"

"Fanny... because you're worth it"
Thu 11th Nov 2010 15:54
Yep - I'm just being dim - like I thought .. durrr
Thu 11th Nov 2010 13:56
Hi - I'd already posted one a while ago called "when vampires menstruate". Sorry if I'm being dim, but I dont understand the bit about "Road" - can you maybe enlighten me ?
The Origin of the World - great picture - but I think a more honest title might have been
"don't you just love fannies?" (or similar)

Thank you very much for going to the trouble of finding out more about my poem 'Life.'
You know my thoughts on it :-)
Tue 9th Nov 2010 17:15
Thanks for comment on Mannequin.
Sat 6th Nov 2010 16:44
Hiya Laura, like your biog, yeah you didnt bottle it you did a top performance, glad you loved doing it and enjoyed the night, you're more than welcome anytime Jeff X
Tue 2nd Nov 2010 22:06
Hi Laura, i'm good at suggestions and not so good at putting them into practise :-)
It's not up to me to show how i would have set it out.
I just noticed that a few lines were very long without punctuation as i would have voiced it out loud. If you say the first line out loud yourself you'll see what i mean i think. It's in the pauses where i just thought that maybe if you look at the structure, it would emphasise some of the power.
Feel free to ignore. I'm certainly no expert.How are you by the way?
You've been quiet on here last couple of days.x

Hey - you're right about HMHB - but I managed to find a few things that I haven't heard them take the piss out-of-the-proles for;
swimming with F***ing dolphins
(now shagging a dolphin's diffrunt)
going to Sharm el Sheik
going to any F***ing Disneyworld
going to Florida
buying a chiminea/patio heater
adopting a panda/elefunt/nig-nog
getting solar panels or crocs
getting a F***ing i-Pad
stroking a Tiger in Thailand
...no, sorry, I did that one :)

Thanks for your lovely comment on my 'Genuflecting' poem.
Not sure if you can buy lemon scented star drops. My gran always used to add a few drops of lemon juice to hers for added sparkle :-)
I used to be a regular at the Tudor. Not been for ages because i have very mixed feelings about the venue and have to be in the right frame of mind to deal with it.
I've travelled around to quite a few venues in the past but have no transport now when not working and I hate travelling alone.x
Wed 27th Oct 2010 15:05
Yep - I knows about the formal 5-7-5, but it hardly trips off the tongue(for me anyway) - whereas a limerick (say) is the polar opposite - it still has a formalised structure, but has a singy-songy rhythm to it. anyway - I liked yours (and Dave's recent one too).
Wed 27th Oct 2010 11:24
I'm in Wigan, not a million miles away. How cliche is that? ha ha
Haiku is really meant to be made up of images and includes at least a season, scent or other of the five senses and be deep and meaningful (at least that's how i allude to them)
I just enjoy them for what they are.. a neat little poem :-)
Tue 26th Oct 2010 20:18
Hi Laura, thanks for your comment on 'Poem.' and yes it does feel a bit strange writing very short poems. I used to practise with Haiku. Might re-blog a couple just for fun :-)
Where do you come from?
Tue 26th Oct 2010 18:19
yeah - it was the shirt - course it was - what else ?? ;)
Tue 26th Oct 2010 16:51
Thanks for the comments on The Bidding.
There's a lot goes on my head, Laura!
Tue 26th Oct 2010 10:32
Hi again. Yes for me using found words is great because you are using someone elses palette of words. The decision for me is how much you intervene. Do you leave it completely ramdom and rely on its quirkyness like some of Stevens recent postings or do you try and introduce rhyme for example like your last one and create something new. For me the tailing off is due to falling between these 2 approaches. A punchy strong rhyming end may have worked better. but hey... that is just me. Also remember the Neutral milk hotel album, Well i have down loaded it and will listen in the car soon. My deductions were merely google aided :-) Win x
Tue 26th Oct 2010 00:04
hello laura :) found ya .. now i am going to read your poetry and not comment !! (evil little witch aren't i eh ?) x
Sat 23rd Oct 2010 09:58
Thanks for you comments on 'Freedom' - they are very much appreciated.
Fri 22nd Oct 2010 17:54
Thanks for the comments on Tom Pudding.
Quite spooky that you detect an "Irishness" about it. When I wrote the final lines I kept singing the song "Farewell to the tent and the old caravan, To the gypsy, ti-tum-tim, the travelling man, And farewell to the life of the rover".
Liked the shopping list. It reminds me of the times I've have fish and chips twice with a can of diet coke.
Fri 22nd Oct 2010 15:08
Yes - I think if I was in the same room as "Her Fordness" I'd probberly be on the receiving end of a glass of Lambrusco :)
Fri 22nd Oct 2010 14:37
Thanks for the comment on my attempt on the freedom theme.
I won't say where it alludes to. I prefer to leave it to the imagination in the hopes it will perhaps allow readers to be reminded of a similar place they might have been themselves.
It's a trial and error with poetry i have going on here which i haven't tried before so hope it works in that sense for you :-)
Fri 22nd Oct 2010 09:29
Hi Laura, thanks for the comment, it's hugely appreciated. x
Thu 21st Oct 2010 11:13
Hi - I know this sounds mad, but I've actually built our business around the "wild & wacky" ideas I'd had after a few spliffs.
I wrote em down & the next day they still seemed sensible - just broadens your horizons. Maybe they should hand out spliffs at No 10 cabinet meetings - we might get some sensible governance then :)
Mon 18th Oct 2010 17:55
Hi Laura - I think that's a lovely story, & yet again, synchronicity must be at work here, cos - like I said - I heard the Exact same phrase used on TV - and whenever I see/hear/read something unusual like that I always squirrel it away to think about later - and it was such an odd phrase - yet something that you could imagine any of us doing at one time or another. all the best.

Thanks for your comment on my Freedom poem. Yes, I thought it was funny that he didn't scald his mouth, perhaps he did. And though you suggest that I punched him in the mouth, I couldn't possibly comment.
Wed 13th Oct 2010 22:38
Hello Laura, and thank you for your comment on my Tree of Life poems. I think the second part is stronger than the first. I don't know this poet you mention, but I will look her up.I like the irony in your Freedom poem.
Wed 13th Oct 2010 18:51
Hi Laura, thanks for your pylon comments! another fan! Win x
Tue 12th Oct 2010 18:11
Thanks for your comments on the recent train one. Glad it works for you. I agree that to get the reader to fill in the blanks is a good thing generally but the writting still has to have quality and sometimes its easy to loose that when you know the context yourself. Win
Tue 12th Oct 2010 15:41
Hello Laura. It's the Wigan event at the Tudor this Thursday. Hope to see you there.
Sat 2nd Oct 2010 10:45
Hi Laura, thanx so much for your comment on 'Night Drive', v much appreciated. Glad you like the second bit, but yes the first bit was to set the scene and give that chilled solitary feeling that was the moment of inspiration for the poem really.
I do like to ask questions in my poetry and a lot have (prob still a few on here), like 'Don't tell me the answers I did a couple of months ago - http://www.writeoutloud.net/public/blogentry.php?blogentryid=15953
Anyway, hope you like that if you havent read already and hope to see you soon, will be at the tudor on sat 9th october and thurs 14 october, so might see you then, if not 4 November with Mr Kettle! cheers Jeff x
Thu 30th Sep 2010 18:51
Thanks for coming back and explaining your take on the knotty question of allusions. There's no right answer is there. One thing that is troubling though is that some people fill their work with allusions because they are well read and love what they read - which I think is true of you. Others do it to show off. How to tell the difference?
Thu 30th Sep 2010 17:33
Thanks Laura - hey, that sounds like fun. Glug glug glug toilet glug glug toilet glug toilet glug toilet toilet glug toilet stagger home. We should do it!
Fri 24th Sep 2010 16:22
Aww ta. lurve the lovely bones
YEP it was a typo. ta for the check - I hate typos meself too. hoping you are well, fellow poet. Now my turn to have a nosey at some of your poesy. : )
Thu 16th Sep 2010 19:53

Fri 10th Sep 2010 16:21
Thanks Angela ;p
Glad you loved the visit. Was it fun for you? ;)
Fri 10th Sep 2010 14:58
Hey Lara - welcome to WOL. I loved visiting your museum. The walls and the floors having quite given way beneath me - but it led to a suspenseful visit!x
Fri 10th Sep 2010 12:51
Cheers Winstons :)
Okay - I'll stick them up on the blog thing, ta for tip
Fri 10th Sep 2010 11:18
Liked you samples . I think that you should enter one or two as blog entries, that way they will get more exposure and are more likely to attract comments, Liked the museum piece especially. I think that many of us have written about a museum but not one like this. Win
