Thank you so much for taking the time to read and comment on
'Berry Bridge'... It is a very special poem that was written for and influenced by someone very dear to me...
(I had deleted all of my other poems from 2010 in a fit of anger and sadness).
The Berry Bridge is a real place... but can also be any other place you so desire ; )
Hmmm... My secrets...?
I am extremely optimistic.
I am confident.
I am driven. : )

Hi A. thanks for the observations re 100 ways to fold a serviette. A jigsaw with pieces missing. I like that. It is an inherant feature of the ghazal style but in this case without the song. Win x

Thanks for your thoughts on Mi Firstest Poems, A.
I well remember the pain of lovers' balls - as I peddled home from a girlfriend's house having copped a feel but nothing more!

Hi Anthony - re: SOUTH EAST LONDON TRIO - much obliged for the supportive comments
Thu 10th Mar 2011 17:20
loved neil's story xx
Thu 3rd Mar 2011 21:08
Anthony, just spent the last 1/2 hr reading all about the Neil Moss tragedy (inc your links). What an amazing and of course tragic story and fitting poem. Thx Win

Your comment about my comment reminds me of an old joke my dad used to tell. It all hung round the interpretation of these words.
'What do you think - I'll shave you for nothing and buy you a drink?'
Depending on the intonation and whether you left a pause after What, it could reflect astonishment that anyone could be so stupid, or a genuine offer of something for nothing.
Humour used to be a lot more simple back in his day... or maybe it's got more so.
Yep - all the scraps on here can be amusing or upsetting depending on what mood you are in. How deeply you get involved depends on where you are yourself also. In my early days I got right in there and very fired up. Not so much nowadays - I tend to find I've said and done it all before - it is just a little bit of history repeating - just to echo some Shirley Bassey lyrics I know...
Sorry I've no great revelations to show you... you'd probably be disappointed anyway! x
Thu 3rd Mar 2011 18:43
Yes - nothing much has changed on here - except recently it has...
See what happens when you come back LOL - Apocalypse Now! x
Wed 2nd Mar 2011 21:21
Thank you - first time I've won anything with a poem, really rather chuffed.
Wed 2nd Mar 2011 02:33
loved 'lifelines' going to give a copy to my mum, shell like it. she sits and knits all sorts of wonderful things xx
Wed 2nd Mar 2011 02:30
thanks for comments on em..nice to connect with another fan, there is some snobbery surrounding eminem's poetic genius...but with lyrics like "shove a gerbil up your ass..through a tube" Ive no idea why ;)
Truly yours, his biggest fan, 'i killed stan',
Mon 28th Feb 2011 22:47
Thanks for your comments on Edward 11, A. I don't often get accused of intellect!
Tue 8th Feb 2011 00:05
Good to hear from you. Anthony, and good to know that something may be germinating.
Sun 30th Jan 2011 23:36
What's happened to you? You're missed. We could do with a bit of class round here
Tue 2nd Nov 2010 07:33
Hi Anthony,a belated big thank you for nominating my 'Dad' poem.I am proper chuffed :) x
Wed 13th Oct 2010 10:25
Just read your poem of the month and very much appreciated it. Very fine work.
Wed 6th Oct 2010 17:28
I love your poem of the month, it is beautiful: and so good to hear those names of places and lighthouses from our wonderful westcountry!
Fri 1st Oct 2010 00:15
Félicitations Anthony !
'lifelines' est un très beau poème... Isobel a bien choisi : )
Sat 10th Jul 2010 16:37
Thanks for your comment Anthony - it means a lot that you liked it. I was hoping for a slightly softer voice but put a microphone in front of me and I seem to get edgy. On reflection I think it might have been better in a lower key. Not sure myself how it works as a french poem - there is probably one cliche in it - life being compared to lightning - but it rhymed and I was working under additional constraints!
When are you posting another one?
Sun 20th Jun 2010 22:10
Thanks for your comment on my meagre offerings...
Haven't managed to watch any footie yet - can't muster up any enthusiasm - it's a great time to get your shopping done though - the roads and aisles are empty...
Sun 20th Jun 2010 15:46
Hi Anthony, thank you for your very kind comments on 'Hamishagos'..where did i find the word?..hmm i think the brashki gave it to me during their brigaki djili one evening in early summer : ) thank you again, Debz xx
Sun 20th Jun 2010 11:13
Anthony, first let me thank you for your heartfelt and ebullient comment on 'Stark cold truth'
I have just read your poem 'lifelines' and it is a fantastic poem with a rich tapestry of well woven and unforgettable images. On the strength of that one poem I can't believe you are not published as I have read with some poets of fine repute and it reminded me a so many poets, from the accessibility and execution of Auden, to the warmth of Khalil Gibran. It also reminded me of my friends poem 'Allihies', go to Mike McKimm's website to see if Allihies poem is on there - I think you'd like the inspired response from a poets stay in somewhere as beautiful as Allihies.
Fine poem sir, we should keep in touch occasionally as I am sometimes in Cornwall and if you are ever in Coventry I co run an open mic at the tin angel on mideieval spon street, would love to collab a performance with you !
Thu 17th Jun 2010 11:56
Anthony, thanks for your kinds words about Waveney; it was the product of a railway trip to Beccles on a very sunny day. Cheers, Greg
Fri 11th Jun 2010 22:30
I keep going back to Visting Neil -I cant quite believe how good it is. Given that we are all on here working with words, it seems that adequate words escape us when we are smitten by words put together like these. This is one of my all-time favourites, up there with Robert Frost, John Burnside, etc. I'm not saying this just to be kind, but it is very rarely that one comes across a work so moving or so "right" in every sense. I think you can be very proud of yourself. all the best. B
Wed 9th Jun 2010 08:52
Hi A.E. Belated thanks for commenting on 'Descent Into The Maelstrom' The section you refer to is my favourite part too. In fact this was the starting point for the piece. I fear the rest never quite liveed up to it? Win
Tue 8th Jun 2010 13:44
'By dint of curiosity and accident' - I bet you did! Hope your trawlings are going well... x
Thu 3rd Jun 2010 19:41
Hola Anthony ;-) re TC it was an afterthought for me too the 'Top Cat' thing ha ha I used to love that show .......
TC........ Officer dibble..... ;-))
Tue 1st Jun 2010 22:14
Hi Anthony, yes, I'm enjoying WOL very much, thanks. I'm glad you liked "I thought of you". Racy? ha ha, well just a bit...!
Tue 1st Jun 2010 08:30
Hi again, Anthony. Just been reading the story of Neil Moss, and I found your poem beautiful. Moved me to tears. Thanks.
Mon 31st May 2010 17:12
Can't get poor Neil out of my head. I went pot holing once. The most horrible experience! I think I may have heard a radio 4 programme about this incident (Neil) a couple of years ago. So haunting! And tragic too. And the audio is splendid. My favourite poem for a long time.
Mon 31st May 2010 11:29
Hi A.E. LOL, Re Coming home without you. Actually this is about a different kind of love. It was the scenario that greeted me last time I dropped off my daughter and returned home to an empty house. I will go and do the washing up now... Win x
Sun 30th May 2010 21:58
Hi Anthony - many thanks for letting me include "Visiting Neil" on my website - it's a mightily impressive & moving poem. you can see it here if you wish
http://www.poemsetfree.com/index.php?page=favourite-poems-by-other-authors You might like Anne Foxglove's Coromandel above yours; another one of my very favourites. Thanks again. B
Sat 29th May 2010 23:57
Thanks Anthony for your advice on my "Angel on Horseback". I agreed with you and have made changes. Thanks again. All the Best, Lynn
Sat 29th May 2010 17:01
If you can be bovvered - my son has a version of cubase and can fiddle round with your poem - adding echo at the beginning and end - you would need to send me the audio file...also tell me whether you want single or double echo and where - the double echo is very heavy - you wouldn't want too much of it.
Sat 29th May 2010 15:30
I honestly hadn't picked up that i had used aspiration twice, well. i suppose i knew but didn't, kind of!
Inspiration definately fits better for the last stanza so changes have been made.
Fri 28th May 2010 17:57
Thanks for taking the time to read and comment. A sequel? Argh, don't think i'm up to that!!As for apologising, well, i think it's in my nature to say for sorry for most things i do! The stuff i write just seems to be there and i kinda feel like a fraud when people comment positively on them. I suppose i should just say ta and get on with it ha ha.
Thank you for a lovely comment x
Fri 28th May 2010 15:02
Tee hee - was never good at maths...
Re the audio - it is probably only worth fiddling round as an experiment if it is easy for you to do so. It is far better with the echo than without - a sound effect that really fits a purpose. You may find it works better all the way through - it was just an idea... x
Fri 28th May 2010 12:59
thanks for your comments on BIG DIAMONDS :)
Fri 28th May 2010 06:22
Thanks for comment on Pandora's Box. While you were commenting I was reading your poem about Neil and went on to read his story. Both pieces are so engaging and sensitively written. Something I shall read again I am sure.
I have a tragic story to tell from years gone by that affected my family. Will probably post it in August.
Best wishes. Dave
Fri 28th May 2010 03:21
Thanks for your comments on 'Play Me' - really made me laugh, so pleased you liked the poem.
Thu 27th May 2010 13:27
Hi - "Visiting Neil" - would you allow me to put this on my website under "favourite poems by other authors" ? all the best. B
Wed 26th May 2010 07:45
Hi there Anthony!Thank you so much for you comments on my Family poem. Didn't know I could do whatnot tentrameters or whatever it was you said! ;-)xx
Mon 24th May 2010 00:17
Thanks Anthony for your very generous comments on 'Pandora's Box', they are very much appreciated.
No, you didn't comment on it before, previously I posted it just for a short while, then took it down again because I didn't think it was good enough, but kind comments from Isobel persuaded me to put it back. Glad you liked it.
Sun 23rd May 2010 08:59
Ta for your comments, Anthony. The Mad History thing is part of a spoof series on mental illness. Sometimes it's hard to overtrump the facts and I've had at least one person take the Egyptian story at face value!
Sat 22nd May 2010 17:22
I love your comment on my poem 'Pandora's Affliction'...
It made my day - You have a wonderful sense of humour! I wrote the poem first, which in turn inspired my choice of photo.
Sat 22nd May 2010 09:39
Hi Anthony - thank you for your kind comments on my voice! Maybe I could do those voiceovers for the M&S food commercials they used to have - " mmmm broccoli" - with lots of practice I might be able to make it sound sexy! (Maybe not!!) ;-) (And hey!"a voluptuous vixen, both feisty and foxy" - are you talkin' about me? Just jokin'! It's a good line tho, might add it to my poet's profile! LOL!)
Sat 22nd May 2010 09:31
Hi Anthony, thanks for the input on my last scribbling, theres a word I invented in there and a spelling! but yes we need to keep the worship a secret dunwe? hoping you ok.
Sat 22nd May 2010 07:25
Thanks for commenting Anthony. And for the (?)compliment. Too young? I'm in my 50s but do remember Michael Miles and Hughie Green, the TV titans of their era. Strange, looking back, what we were gripped by.
Fri 21st May 2010 22:57
I guess he was after a donation of some kind. Mmmmmmmmmm nice job...
I so envy you that one.... LOL LOL LOL xx
