Oh how we wish
to be back in the womb,
for times are bad
hearts full of gloom,
still the bell tolls
we ask for whom,
for all of us
we may assume.

HI Keith,

In 2017 you commented on one of my poems. It's been a long time since I've wrote, and I have grown since then. I want to thank you for your kind words. It truly means a lot to me that you took more than a moment to consider my words during that time. I am now in a place of continued growth and becoming a better version of myself.

Thanks again Keith

Respectfully,
Jason

Keith,
Thank you for appreciating my words.

I'm glad that you agree with my thoughts. Its upsetting to see someone in deep trouble and it hurts like hell when you aren't able to help them. Words of condolence and encouragement can't do what kind actions can.
We do care and love irrespective of colour, creed, caste, religion, races and nation. I'm glad this is a sweet alternative to all the plight.

Love n Peace
MG

stabbing away at the keyboard

Hello Keith, fantastic autumn poem on Poetry Plus. Really enjoyed the beautiful language. I started WOL in 2017, and most of us have come on a great deal since then, I think. Found a poem new to me today. Titles, by John Richardson, whom I didn't know.It's not in the least pedantic. even though he was a Victorian poet, andvery amusing. Keep up the good work.


All the best, Jennifer

Not quite sure what you mean by
"hope you have not had a bad fall"
you mean the season or...
my balance?
Was that your way of saying you think I'm not right?
Then again, maybe you ARE right.
Most of my poetry is unbalanced, slightly askew.

Hello Keith!
Haven't been much on WOL lately, as been v busy with a much needed holiday, (no internet), and family health matters. Just wanted to say how much I liked your latest on Poetry Plus. By Which We are Known, A Silver-framed Photo, and especially Drenched in Duplicity. Fantastic title too. Was also v impressed with your review of Poems of the East. I have always liked and admired your writing, from the start, that is October 2017, when I joined WOL, and couldn't understand why at that time there was so little response! There was one about the sea some time ago, which I thought was fantastic. I'll try and find it again. Delighted that you are now being appreciated as deserved. All the best, Jennifer

Thank you Keith for your comments on "Yard Work".
Nowadays, people shun physical work as if it's bad.
All they want to do is zoom calls. ha.
Physical work is equal to mental work.
It is a partner in our overall well-being.

In response to your comment, this quote has been one that really resonated with me:

β€œWe are not minorities, we have been minoritized. We are not underrepresented, we have been historically excluded. β€œ - Janel Cubbage

I would never consider you a minority! I believe that many have been marginalised due to prejudices but that word doesn’t sit right with me at all, it makes me think something is less than... keep fighting against the inequalities and spreading awareness through your poetry ☺️

Hi Keith,

I just spotted your comment on my profile, thanks for that. I think it was t'other Tom who commented on your recent poem, but I did read and enjoy it.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts and process. I genuinely find it really interesting and would love to grill more contributors about this stuff πŸ˜ƒ

Whilst I'm not able to write exclusively with a pen, I know that the sheer pleasure of writing with a fountain pen on paper is what got me to write many of my poems. It's such a nice experience it encourages you to write something, anything, and often in this process I'll discover a poem buried that I didn't know was in me. In an almost divine intervention, I found a fountain pen in the street aged about 20 and not long after found an empty notebook on a bus journey. It sounds daft really but it was like the universe handed me these tools. I've never since found either of these objects just lying in the street.

I think I take inspiration from many of the same sources as you and the initial ideas are usually dictated into my phone as I'm walking down the street. I'm polishing up a poem at the moment written entirely on a walk home from work where I was inspired by a smell (which is a new one on me, I think). I love your work and always keep en eye out for it - though must admit I've not had much free time to visit WoL of late but I hope that will change soon. All the best, Tom.

they may lack sense
but do have charm.

Dear Keith
I don't many pieces by Rachmaninoff but understand that they are quite difficult to play. A lot of Beethovens music is difficult too, but if you wanted Beethoven then I would suggest the Fur Elise, which short and pleasant to play.
However, I would generally recommend Mozart as most of his works are easier to play, such his Sonata in C , also known as his easy sonata. There are many other pieces by Mozart which are very nice and yet not too demanding.

If you need any more help or advice then let me know and I shall try to get back to you.
I hope this helps.
Kind regards from Stuart
