Thx for the comments on Intercontinental drift, was writen in a hotel in London where they had the most stunning and imaginative displays of flowers I have ever seen, orchids in the lift up the walls and overhead. Amazing. Win x

Thx for reading/commenting on my last poem Elaine.
Great performance at Poets Corner- congrats!
Oh and perfect judging imho, I loved Steve Smith's poem and the humour of Hara's poem- great balance.

thank you for your kind comments and I have re-read 'Old World ' and now find myself totally drawn into it. I used to live in Berlin , near the Wall, and once when the seasons were turning in the park ,Tiergarten, where there were ruined embassies untouched since 1945, experienced a moment such as your poem captures .Your craft recalls me to that moment ,painfully unconfessed imaginings.Oh regrets, I have a few!
Would like a re-read of your closing piece , if poss. firstname.lastname@example.org

Liked 'Breakfast Pots'. Humorous topped with a light sprinkling of pathos. But really.. it struck me as sad and doesn't it sum us all up!

Thanks for the comment on the haikku - absolutely loved the last verse of your poem 'The Old World' (and that's not something I get to say very often...)oh dear that sounds so .. (word beginning with 'p')...parsimonious but it's a beautiful stanza

Education. I work part time as a TA so hopefully they won't bug me too much! I'm not going to lose sleep over it.
Tue 1st Nov 2011 21:03
Thanks for your comment Elaine. The idea was all Stellas and her poem on the theme was a lot better. It's not a subject I like to dwell on but I find other people's poetry stirs it up... and when you have to write something, it comes out whether you like it or not. :)
I'm on the way to feeling better thanks - which is just as well since we have OFSTED in tomorrow... Hope you are feeling better too. xx

Elaine, Great to see your comments on Autism and fit. I am on a bit of a roll at the moment and really enjoying writing. and yes I now have a mini collection of these football report found poems. Win x

Thank you very much for your comments on various pomes - always appreciated :) And yes - god, didn't think you'd notice the date with Clear Blue Air, if you read it! I just checked and there was about 90 minutes between the email and the poem being posted!! Another one that just had to be vomited out!
See you tomorrow night m'dear :) xxx

Glad you liked "Widening the Circle of Friends". The best definition of a "fizzog" is my photo!

Sorry I missed your call. Do try again, or a regular email. This message is via this route as I annihilated my computer the last time I used the 'personal' route with someone else. So now I'm scared to death to try again. Can't afford to jinx my laptop.
Mon 19th Sep 2011 18:58
Thanks for your comment Elaine. Yes - it was a different one for me - just a reflection of a mood I was in. I've had a good read of your latest and enjoyed. I'm never good on commenting on nature poems though - they don't quite reach me in the same way.
Mon 19th Sep 2011 16:14
Thanks E for your comment on Gordon, always much appreciated and yep you're spot on. Bullies are made, not born - we both know that. It was a story that had to be told.
Aye, dunno wtf happened to your other comment!
Sun 18th Sep 2011 22:22
Hi There thanks for your constructive comments on the 2nd of these McCarra experiments - harm resistance. It is a running debate as to whether an origin statement should be included. I currently think it should but both ways (With or without) have advantages, Win x

Hi Elaine; - thanks for the comment on ticket to ride it was wrote on a summers day which i guess sums up the british summertime - lol but thanks for the comment again - hope you are good - speak soon xx
Thu 1st Sep 2011 13:30
Thanks for the comment over My Hometown.
Oddly enough the last line which seems to be going down so well was the line which was the one I was most worried about, but pleased you liked it.
See you soon (I am almost fighting fit now)
Andy N xx
P.S. - The piece is about my love affair with my hometown (Stretford).

The Old World - some great phrases used here - I like the world balm - the poems reminds me of a holiday in Majorca - love long gone and just a memory. I prefer to rmember the holiday and not her.....
Sat 20th Aug 2011 11:09
Breakfast Pots - very readable and I nice endnding - the pots or the wahing are always there to return to....
Fri 19th Aug 2011 12:55
Hi Elaine, many thanks for the recent comments and for reading my poems. Very much appreciated. T.
Wed 17th Aug 2011 17:34
Sorry, Elaine, should have made myself clearer. I think "played shadow puppets" reads better. I thought the first line was rather long in relation to the rest of the poem, though maybe that's no bad thing. Poems never are finished, that's the way to look at it, can always be made better.
Wed 17th Aug 2011 10:28
Hello m'dear - soooo many thanks for taking the time to read and comment on so many pieces!! You appear to have been up most of the night on WOL :D
Take care, and see ya soon

Hi Elaine, thanks for commenting on For My Parents.
I wrote both pieces in June a week apart.
Didn't kill any zombies in the end, the "bigness" of the day, emotionally, hit me and the leaps I'd made in understanding myself - there are light bulbs switching on all over the place at the moment! :) xXx

Thanks for the comments on Senlac Hill. An enormous historical "what-if" indeed. We probably wouldn't have the richness of language we do, poaching from the French our posher words. The strongest influences would on culture would have remained germanic and scandinavian. And we might have fragmented back to smaller kingdoms like Danish-led Northumbria in the North and Saxon-led Wessex in the South ie no England.
Fri 8th Jul 2011 12:48
Hi elaine, again your comments are very much appreciated. It is sad of course and not the path I hope anyone has to follow. Yes, its the medical term for liver spots. The bit you have highlighted seem to have a good rhythm when at a reading so I have given it a few outings recently. The stones in the trifle i will leave to the imagination. Win x
Fri 8th Jul 2011 12:40
Elaine, thanks for your glowing analysis of mish-mash. Am pleased with my poems of late. This one a particularly grim episode. Win x
Mon 4th Jul 2011 22:41
thanks for your comment on my poem Elaine. I wish i could write at will though ... not just when the words hit the page
Sat 25th Jun 2011 09:38
thanks for your comment over 'leaving belfast', i totally agree with your comment over it.. it's also made the set list for my band 'a means to an end' so you will likely hear it again at some point... speak soon - andy n x
Wed 15th Jun 2011 08:18
Glad you like 'Summer is here'.. I agree totally with your comments here and it sums up what I was attempting to do.. I wrote it the other week at lunch when I got really, really
wet on the way back to the office and it sort of summed up my feelings towards the british summertime..
Thanks again x

Love Breakfast pots! you set a great scene of domesticity. Such detail in the simplicity of the morning time :o) could smell it, and see it :o)
Tue 14th Jun 2011 19:49
Thank you Elaine for you comment on Old Glitter and Flip flops :o) glad you like it. Take care. :o)
Tue 14th Jun 2011 10:22
Good Morning. Thanks for your comments on 1971. Glad you liked the last 2 lines. I have edited it this morning and reposted if you care to look. I think it makes more sense now. Win x
Thu 9th Jun 2011 22:46
Tell you a bit more about Escape when I see you as it is a kind of true story, but originally was wrote in a workshop way before my current other half but when the comp came up - it made perfect sense to revise it.. A

Hi Elaine-belated thanks for comment on my poem'Embedded'.
Sun 5th Jun 2011 23:20
Ah! To be a teenager again (sigh). I bet we could do some damage if we could go back and know what we know now!
Thanks for commenting on Prestatyn.
Wed 25th May 2011 17:18
Thanks for comments Elaine.
I haven't read Femme Fatale.
Perhaps next time I'm in the French quarter of Wigan...

Thanks for your comment on my poem Elaine - it's about the departure of a friend, which saddened me. It probably comes over as more serious than it was actually intended - I was aiming for detached regret underpinned by an empathy with that person.
Tue 10th May 2011 13:41
Thankyouthankyouthankyou for all of your lovely and insightful and interesting comments - so many!! What a splurge :D
I will see you again very soon I hope, and in the meantime, enjoy that room of one's own ;)
Mahoosive hugs xxx

Hi Elaine, thanks for youre comments on 1971. and P.S. I could not agree with your biog statement more. Win x
Tue 12th Apr 2011 01:36
Hi Elaine, thank you for your kind words re untitled :-)
Mon 11th Apr 2011 10:01
Cheers m'dear for your comment on Melancholy - I wasn't aware of your version of Thomas so thanks for the extra info :) It is very similar to my own feelings when writing that piece actually. Realised that my plan-making doesn't always lead to clarity of mind, and in fact, I sometimes make situations so much more difficult for myself!
