Mae, thanks for the kind words on my profile. And thank you for encouraging me to try my hand at a sonnet. It is precisely these exchanges that help all of us in our craft and expression. Now, how about that sestina.

Mae, you do make me smile. You're like an old fashioned tea kettle on the high boil.

When I was a young teacher, sharing a flat with a fellow teacher, I put our kettle on for teatime - and then forgot it - utterly. I think I was playing a favourite record, loudly, and probably dancing around with complete concentration. Spaced out!

It exploded! And the cloud that filled the apartment, plastered the ceiling and the windows, our books and our furniture, was just awful!

With such intense energy that you have, don't forget to turn down, or even off, sometimes. Don't explode.

Mae, I was really interested in your desire/need for 'ice cream' for a whole year!

Right now, I love raisins, salted peanuts and chocolate pieces, all in one mouthful! It's the salt that binds it all together. I could just purr! I have to be 'sensible' or I'll put on weight! I gain weight FAST! (But not too sensible, in honesty.)

Thanks for responding. Your photos are lovely. Is that your original 'quote' at the end of your bio?

I once sailed across the Adriatic from Greece to Turkey (or was it from Italy to Greece?)
at dawn - The sun inches above the Islands in the mist and a glass-like sea. It was the most transforming vision that I have...shh I do go on
ps I grind my own beans.

pps or was it the Aegean?

Hey D. Your messages always a colorful note on my profile! 🎈
You flatter me!

I always wear sunglasses
Forced by an urge to hide
I do not speak for the masses
Nor am I waiting for a car
I am in fact depicted at a cafe, eyes all wide
There it is, I can see it! Coming from afar
Oh, the anticipation and surely a bit of greed!
My poison, my fix, my much coveted trophy
My reward for always being such a good little kid
My precious, delicious hot morning cup of coffee!

Thanks for stopping by🎈
Mae

Who is the poet in dark glasses
surely a Hollywood star
or a poet of the masses
waiting for a car
Mystery surrounds her
with a look that is afar
she may be Mae or maybe
that's just the way things are.

Ok, just listened to the audio file of GR. Mae you have a beautiful voice, a slight husky sultry tone which, for me at least, had a lovely lilting quality. Got to say, I loved it. You could read any of mine anytime you liked, it was great.

Thank you Mae for being kind and writing on my profile. Yes we both have suffered life threatening illnesses (myself twice, cancer and sepsis) but we are both still here. Hurrah for us!! I like your poems. You have your own style - pushing at the margins of meaning and encouraging your reader to think about the connotations of words and to read between the lines. I will come back to your poems.

La vie est une fleur dont l'amour est le miel.” – Victor Hugo

Take care and keep writing - John

Hello, Mae. It seems like you have quite much to say.

I've enjoyed watching, in silence, your participation here on WoL--from what I've seen, I've no doubt that you have much more to offer.

Hello Mae - thank you for your messages on my page.
Remember some wise words: cynicism is the last resort of
idealism - and take comfort from them. Age (and I have that in abundance) should see us benefit in this life in
unexpected ways and these are always to be welcomed.
That said, youth has the advantage of an open mind and
the hoped-for years to profit accordingly. My working life
was spent in public service and allowed me many insights
into the human condition, its strengths and its frailties.
Now, in retirement, I can enjoy embracing the best of
both whilst not being too quick to be impressed by what
modern life and its values have to offer.
Be content in your own skin and above all, be kind (especially to yourself) when possible. I firmly believe
the latter to have the most value in our existence, whilst
being ready to recognise cant and cruelty - and reproach
them accordingly. Well-founded criticism always has its
place.
Good luck with your WOL poems!
MC

Hi, Mae, thanks for commenting my profile! In fact, English is my native tongue, but I live in France, so when I try to put my poetry "out there" it's harder to be fully understood. That's why I've appreciated this website as a place I can share with people who do understand English!

I do sometimes write poetry in French though, and I'm absolutely all for writing in languages other than mother tongue too. We use slam poetry in our English as Second Language programme and the students absolutely love it - some even say it's easier and more liberating to write in English than to write in their own language, as the "rules" seem less constraining!

I've read your sample poem and I think it's great, and even your biography is written very poetically. I look forward to exploring more of your work.
