Hi Po
Rhyme? is something of an auto-biographical account of my beginnings in writing some 12 years ago (very late starter), after the death of my first wife. It also highlights some of the snobbery that still survives in the literary world.
I truly appreciate your thoughts.
Pretty much the best I can offer anyone (after I've read a poem) is to press the 'Like' button. I never think that I have a platform from which to critique

Hi Jane

I love to go back over other poets stuff.

I find I spend more time reading others poems here than I do writing.
It is a great way to learn the way others put stuff together, and learn new ways to write rhyme and prose.

You may find that you like an individuals style or their topics.

Keep writing AND reading.

MC Thank you so much for this old friend.

The late great Michael Bentine had a very interesting life

He was in RAF and had so many experiences of a similar ilk.

At breakfast he would see the guys who would not return that day... their faces turned in to skulls.

That is truly the stuff of nightmares. Sad but true.

Also.. Air vice marshal Sir Hugh (Lord) Dowding had some very interesting sessions with Sir Winston Churchill
and a medium called Victoria Helen McCrae Duncan.

She was the last person to be imprisoned under the British Witchcraft Act of 1735.

She was a very interesting person, Her life story is an amazing read.

Hi Po (not meant to mean hypo! 😉) - it's good to know
there is a nucleus of folk on WOL who can use welcome
levity to lift the spirits when it's needed. You are one.
By the way, in view of your interests in such things, have you looked up the online references to the late Air Vice Marshal Sir Victor Goddard, a man of action and believer
in spiritual things. He had a number of experiences that
supported his belief in matters beyond our comprehension
and wrote books which included his accounts. A famous
example is the death of a close friend when he was the
only witness and was later astounded to have a medium
tell him things only HE (Goddard) could have known of his friend's passing. He was also witness to a "slip in time" incident when flying over Scotland before WW2 and
seeing, through a break in a storm cloud, an air field
with 'planes that hadn't been invented and ground-crew
wearing apparel that hadn't been adopted at that time.
An extraordinary man who lived an extraordinary life.
Good luck!
MC

Costa Lot has a background noise of a coffee shop.

I have converted my caravan in to a recording studio.

I have set up my keyboard and video camera with a separate mic to get cleaner sound recordings.

I have started to experiment with some new software which is quite a steep learning curve.

Both video and sound software and another version of PhotoShop.

Plus 'Crazy Talk' all of which I have great plans for this year Do.

Po I am eagerly looking forward to your poem out of reach - the audio version.

the new audio of yours is also good. if you could choose a silent background while recording, it will be good.

anyways a great effort.
btw where is your studio and what it is all about?

Do I am so excited about the idea to get a women to narrate the poem 'Out of his reach'

I will post a request for some help in that endeavour.

It is going to lose the impact if I read it myself.

The list of poets I follow is growing longer as I find 'new poets' that are just starting out and some long time members of the great and good here at WOL.

Reading other poets musings (and recordings) is a great way to pass away a cold rainy day... or evening when their is nothing to watch on old brain sapping box.

There is some great talent here, I enjoy reading the comments sometimes more than the actually poem they refer to.

I spend more time reading than writing and posting here that's for certain.

Thank you to each and every poster here on my profile,
especially the new members.

I am finding solace in your words Big Guy.

We need to understand the power we have as poets Right Here... Right Now!

If my car needed repair I would go to the garage
If I have toothache I go to the dentist

If I need help with my up and coming poetic musings and 'getting out there' I seek advice from poets and artists that have already done it, who can speak from experience.


We must never be afraid to ask for help.

Colluding with other poets can only be a good thing.

Sadly I feel some fear that their stuff will be drowned, or diluted sinking into obscurity whilst the other partner gains all the glory.

In any relationship it must be give and take. 'Just giving or just taking' will not ultimately help either party.

Let's hope it's not just a vanity press.

And beware of the slimy, scummy offers to publish for a 'nominal fee' which usually adds up to at least $2,000 minimum, plus a professional copyedit which is $1,200 at the cheapest I could find.

Small-time authors need to help each other more if they are to be successful. It's this holding the cards against chests that keeps lids shut tight and doors slammed.

The more we help each other, the bigger this community will become, and we may actually carve out a market all our own instead of piggybacking off just straight literature or books in general.

Here's to your first book.🎊

Continue with the graphic poetry, Po. You put out a book with it, I'll be one of the first to scoop it up. You know me well enough by now that you know I never shy from profanity or controversy if it helps open a few eyes and shut a few voices of dissenting idiocy.

Keep your voice strong and I look forward to seeing where this goes.💪

Hi Taylor

Your wonderful poem "The Matriarch" has actually inspired me to write a poem about a forest.

I find it interesting how other poets and artists work inspires us.

My latest poem 'FREEZEING TIME' was inspired by the
Salvador Dali Painting "The Persistence of Memory"

Who am I?

What care I
for fortune or fame.
Desiring anonymity
what’s in a name?
My personal persona
what’s in a guise?
Is there a reason
for assuming a disguise?
Pray I please ask you
don’t patronize.
Who I am, unimportant
what I am, I’ll apprise.
Discretion essential
my professions not obscure.
I wish to reassure,
I’m not a provocateur
People don’t like secrets,
however mine must endure
So I’m sorry Ghazala
no photo for sure!

[I originally posted this on your poem, 'Cocooned', but that same error affected me too, so here is the original comment.]

I don't know what's more surreal: your imagery, or this long ass message I had to read to get to the comment section.😅
(JK)

No, but the third line is superb. Ties the piece together with a single word I believe, but hey, that's just me.

Nice one, Po. (Unfortunately, here in the US we don't "grab our coats", but rather "drop our hats") So, break a leg sir, and keep writing.👍

Nick There is no secret to understanding others pain if they are brave enough to expound as you do so well in your poetry.

With over three score years I have seen and done a lot of things... some I am really not proud of, but when I glance at the fulcrum I can see the scales tip in the favor of the things I am proud of.

Anubus holds our fate in his hands. However we can drop just one feather from our wings and tip the scales in our favour, regardless of the weight in our heart and soul.

You have great strength in your writing.
You have the power to help those who need to see the path you have trod and follow in your footsteps.

There is a reason for all things.
