thanks for the kind comment on 'kraken' Laura - sorry I've taken a while to get back to you - thought I'd responded, but obviously that was on facebook - so here's the WOL response :-) cheers

Hi Laura. I'm really happy you enjoyed my poem. The truth is that I make these things up. Depending on what issue I'm writing on I try to get into someone else's mind and shoes. Words just come out and really try to feel what could be felt. Thank you for your comments.

thanks for the comments about 'snipers' Laura - and you're right about the punctuation - there wasn't meant to be any - but sometimes they slip in due to habit - I'll edit before it goes in any collection ;-) cheers

I'm doing O.K. how about you. Thanks for your comments on Tall tales.

Thanks for your comment Evenings when in love with a painter.
You're right it was a smoky evening! I'm happy you could feel that. :D xx

Cheers Laura for your wonderful review of 'Scots wha hea!' ;)
re your further comment- I find the 'debate'(on Scottish independence) both interestingly provocative and outrageously deceptive. It really does just pip Oscar (Precious) Pistorius' trial for mendacity, incompetence and contempt from the leading 'players'. If it were not for the seriousness of the issues involved it would be hilarious.

Laura, re: The Blessed Man, sometimes front line capitals just feels right. Perhaps it is the subject here, so universal and simple, which maybe requires those 'standard rules' to which readers will immediately relate.
And nothing is more universal than fairy tales. Or mythology - sort of the same point... sort of.

Thanks for your comment on my poem Laura - forget who I've thanked and who I haven't! x
Wed 27th Aug 2014 17:30
Thanks for your note, Laura. I knew the poem 'Wishes' might irritate some persons greatly; and also, that somebody would know exactly what I meant.
It was written after much thought, years of thought, until one day, it just slipped through my pen, complete, exactly what I wanted to say.
Thanks for sharing.

...and you Laura are the mistress to fortune, or something, anyway ta la! ;) for ''Hockey anyone?''
Fri 22nd Aug 2014 20:12
haha - a Milton/tenacious D mash-up eh? could be worse ;-) thanks for the comment on 'crooked road' mate
Wed 20th Aug 2014 14:37
Thank you for your comments on "Nature". I have added another verse and it does seem more complete now :)
Thank you for reading.

Laura i will invite you to a BBQ only if you have smoldering embers in your hair. As for your comment on 'Astronomer...' of course you are so correct x
Wed 16th Jul 2014 20:00
thanks again Laura - just seen your nice comments on 'white feather' - I think more CO's in the world would mean less or no wars ;-) really enjoying getting into these war story characters - it's been enlightening and a great challenge. Just posted a balade royal - Chaucer - watch out! lol
Wed 16th Jul 2014 19:52
thanks for the comments on Craiglockhart Laura - now recorded it as a very up tempo punky song - really suits those fast rhythm repeats - posted it to my FB page - cheers
Fri 27th Jun 2014 15:51
Laura - The kind comments that you left on my profile page about 'Glasto in my Garden', (relating to kudos and sunshine), motivated and inspired me to pen 'Habitat Hippy'. Rock on!
Thank you Laura.
Thu 26th Jun 2014 14:13
thanks, once again, for your kind comments on Passchendaelle Laura - I really enjoyed writing that one and the stark haiku format, usually so beautiful in it's wordology, really suits the sharp and brutal images I wanted to get across. Already recorded it for the album - with a haunting celtic pipe feel resonating. Thanks again
Fri 6th Jun 2014 10:53
Pleased you liked "Glasto in my Garden" and the "sisters lippy" line. I think Glastonbury should be on everybodys bucket list just for the diversity and 101 different experiences with mud ;)
Mind you nowadays it's all "Wet wipes, Wellies and Great big tellys"
Wed 21st May 2014 14:09
thanks for the comments on 'the vegetable man' Laura - yes - love the paintings - they are clever, colourful and yet, quite sinister - hope the poem works in the same way - it's a pretty old one that I revisited
UPDATE: got it - 'writing in fire' just the way the lines are structured and that rolling momentum thingy - well I think so anyway :-)

Thanks for commenting Laura. Your last one prompted me to dig out my own on dust and read it at the last Tudor. Catch you there one day hopefully.
Tue 1st Apr 2014 12:33
Thanks for making me reflect.
My Mum was really good with a needle, but she was very talented (artistic) at colouring black and white photographs
I actually enjoyed writing this (which isn't always the case)
I've seen you're doing a slam in Warrington. I won't be going, but what are the rules? I'm always intrigued at the various kind of slams
Thu 27th Mar 2014 14:33
Thanks for taking the time etc, and yes this time I really mean 'the time'
Hey'up Dave was done a while ago, and then I decided that I should show some balance, and the next two (making up the Trilogy) came along quite close together. The Church was obviously the next target, but Michael Grove? Is Michael Gove a real person?? Surely not! He can't be can he?
Wed 5th Mar 2014 12:37
thanks for the comment, laura over my take this bill poem. glad you like it. let's just say some of my friends have expensive drinks tastes but not thankfully when it is my round - lol.
Wed 26th Feb 2014 18:27
thanks for the comment on 'Anytown' Laura and apologies for the tardiness of my reply - I've not been spending enough time on WOL recently and I've got behind with both my thank-you's and my readings of other folks work - something I intend to remedy as we head in to March :-) will be back in touch I'm sure once I catch up on my reading
Sat 22nd Feb 2014 17:38
Glad you enjoyed my latest spewing! Souxsie...a woman who has done far too many drugs ha ha I didn't know the song you mentioned so I looked it up. The live vid was 'something'!!!
Hope you're still well :-p
Wed 19th Feb 2014 18:17
Thanks for encouragement on Freckleton poem.
Hope the gig on 14th went well

Thanks for commenting again, Laura. I suppose the follow-up to in and out should be 'shake it all about', but I think I'll pass on that.
Tue 28th Jan 2014 17:57
Thanks for the comment Laura. The encouragement was all that was needed for a follow-up.
Tue 28th Jan 2014 10:06
cheers Laura - re 'Fracking' - must say, like most people, I don't know enough about the technical stuff to know how much harm and upset fracking is going to cause - but I don't know how syphilis works either - I just know I don't want it :-). I'm having a go at a few 'form' poems over next week or so - but a cinquain was new to me - so thought I'd give it a go
Mon 27th Jan 2014 22:40
thanks for commenting on my last 2 efforts Laura - Gram Parsons never put a musical foot wrong in my opinion :-)I do keep coming back for more - but sometimes I could just walk away - very frustrating on 'certain nights' ;-)
Tue 14th Jan 2014 14:24
Good to hear it! And thank you twice over. Ink isn't finished yet ha ha lot more to go yet.
Fri 10th Jan 2014 16:33
Happy new year, Laura, chuck, and glad you liked Surbiton Lagoon. To tell the truth, I didn't go there much, because at that time I couldn't really swim. But I could always hear them all enjoying themselves, in the distance.
Sun 22nd Dec 2013 22:00
It was the McGarrigle poem…I liked the calmer style of it, and also the neater stanzas. I couldn`t hear you reading it in your usual `go get `em` style. It was much more - powerfully - controlled.
Wed 18th Dec 2013 22:48
thanks for the kind and observant comments on 'Christmas Eve' m'dear - corrections made :-)
are you coming to the gig on Saturday @ the Tudor? I'm doing 30 minutes with back tracks (due on @ 8.15 I think) and I've got a good rant one about the conservatives set to a punk toon - you'd love it I think :-)
Mon 2nd Dec 2013 15:33
Yep will try and make it if I can navigate around works parties, pantomimes, hangovers, football matches etc.
Fri 29th Nov 2013 01:44
Thanks for the comments on the Flutter poem.
Also hanks for pulling me up on spelling and grammar, its a big help and I am terrible for making such mistakes.
Thankyou and if you spot anymore, please scold me brutally for it. I will still love you.
Sun 24th Nov 2013 20:01
Thanks for the comment (and correction) on 'Glam' Laura - amended and glad you liked it
D'Ya wanna be in my gang? ;-)
Fri 15th Nov 2013 18:59
Hi Laura, 'Beano' many thanks for the kind words. I never actually met Ian Drury but if he is the one I think you mean well rather a sad ending. BTW, I haven't been to Thanet either. That was just a name that came to me. Just been checking out some of your poetry links, gosh impressive. Glad you are still posting. x
Wed 30th Oct 2013 01:12
Thanks for your words of wisdom. If you've gone from written nothing and performed nothing three years ago to the current list of publishing and performance highlights on your profile page - I can only say I am well impressed. Your story is really a life changing one!
Best wishes, Steve
Mon 28th Oct 2013 11:26
Thanks for reading 'if you don't like the record' I have to admit that this site has inspired me to have a go (some day) at actually performing my stuff. Clearly, reading your profile you're a bit of an expert. Pity I can't take my own advice but one day . .
Thu 17th Oct 2013 23:29
Hi Laura- I think middle-eastern- and get carried away myself (re Blackened Berries)I appreciate the emotional effort you have invested here. :)
Wed 16th Oct 2013 18:31
thanks for your kind comments regarding the winterfylleth poem Laura - sorry i'm a bit late in responding - I'm getting a bit behind due to other commitments at the moment - so in catch up mode with the thank you's - anyway, very kind of you - cheers
Mon 14th Oct 2013 16:48
Thanks for the comment laura and i applaud your 'Assembly' as I said. I'd love to see a print out of your 'Lexicon' or am I just too stupid to know where to find it?
Wed 2nd Oct 2013 19:22
thanks, once again, for your kind and supportive comments on the JCC thing Laura - totally agree with you about the 'chips' thing, he deserves it - we'd all give our right arms to make that sort of money out of poetry - it's only the snobs who think you should forever suffer for your 'art' lol :-)
Mon 30th Sep 2013 22:40
Glad you enjoyed "Cottage Sleaze". As I said in one of my comments, cottages hold a special place in my memory. I was fondled in one when I was a youngster while the bloke wanked off into the next cubicle. As I said, it was rather thrilling and he gave me a 10/- note for it. Happy days.
Thu 19th Sep 2013 23:10
hey Laura - many thanks (once again) for your kind and thoughtful comments on 'cycle of the scarecrow'. I'm really pleased with this one because I originally blogged just one of the 4 'quartets' as a finished piece and then realised there was more to be done :-)
Interesting points about the metre - cos it does work for me (8 syllable count per line) but, because of the technical difficulty in getting all the monorhymes to fit - it makes it bloody hard to keep the meaning, metre, syllable count and rhyme all in sync - like juggling 4 hot pokers with 8 plates of jelly
:-) I'll have a look at it - but, as I say, when I read it I can make the metre work - so it may just be an 'on the paper' glich
