Thanks for your comment Anthony. I see 'What's It All About' more as social comment than political poetry. If it is political then it is very soft political. The message is the need for equality, mutual respect, inclusion, compassion and dare I say it, the L word....I'm not sure if there is a political party out there capable of giving it us - that comes from within - if only you could extract it and dish it out like a vaccine - then we'd be living in paradise.

Thanks for your lovely comment Anthony. I read it to my mum, who thought that your words sounded like poetry in themselves. I guess I felt a bit guilty about posting that poem cos it took no time to write and wasn't particularly sophisticated. Those feelings just had to come out of me there and then and I didn't have hours and hours to hone it. You and all who commented made me feel a lot better about the poem. Thank you.

thanks to you all for your comments on this poem folks - i still need to end the last line and am thinking about it - the poem took about 15 mins to write the first draft and as such, you can tell this from the reading

many regards as always for taking the time to read and consider my poem(s) it means a lot thanks

Anthony - apologies. I have only just registered your very full approval of my stuff. So I have taken a look at yours - 'like you do' (:o). I see we share the 'human condition' as a spur. I find 'Phoenix' particularly arresting, and overall, feel you use language evocatively (Oh help - is that a word?) and have a nice turn of phrase. I think your style is more acceptable to the modern judges taste than mine, so you should be winning prizes soon - if not already. All the best. Barrie

Your 'lifelines' ... a marvellous evocation of love lost, the cruel sea and the beautiful land of Cornwall.

Loved these lines, among many, Anthony ...

'her days, her nights are one, the same -

a gift of darkness borne by grief

to wounds already salted well.'

And the mention of Lamorna...oh,that walk from Mousehole to Lamorna along the cliffs never fails to blow me away with its beauty! I must get down to Cornwall again soon.

Hi Anthony,
thanks for your comment on 'the one which nearly got away.'
and thanks for the inspiration to write another poem. All i have to do now is imagine what it's like in the life of a shredder. :-)

I love the George Best tribute by the way.
Football isn't really my thing but he was so popular and well known and his life so colourful, i enjoyed reading about him here.
Stay well :-)

Hello Anthony, thank you for reading Springtide and your kind comments on Springtide. Thanks also for introducing me to another new word, sibilants, it sounds like some of those minions with exoskeltons but I'm sure it isn't, so I'd better look it up. They could be green with ten claws and live under shipwrecks.. or maybe I just had too much wine at Hebden last night.. thanks again, Deb : ))

Anthony, I enjoyed Your IDOL homage to George Best - written with passion - and the footnotes. You write in a variety of styles. Not everybody does that but I think it's good.

Football is amazing. At root, it is an immense waste of cerative energy - 22 men chasing a bloated baldder around a field and trying to slot it between two posts. But beneath the apparent banality there is ... beauty, poetry, magic, athletic grace, tribalism, and, yes, passion. Keep writing. Be the best.

Hi Anthony,

Thanks for your kind feedback. I have always found self-deprecation to be a pretty useful way to get an audience on side before I start to mock figures of authority.
I enjoyed reading your poetry. The Watercress Girl has some wonderful imagery and The Doomsday Man is perceptive, mocking, and has a very powerful ending.
George

i dont solely write dark for any particular reason apart from that i write what i feel as do most but as and when i wish to evangelise about a summers day etc i will, as im not totally into nihilism.

im keen to ultimately get my work published in answer to your question and am keen to make inroads into doing that (ability permitting)

On the whole I'm very glad I inadvertently stumbled on WOL. Pity I can't remember what I was actually searching for... but I don't care anymore!

thanks Anthony,
trouble is anyone employed by the nhs who attempts to whistle blow or protest in any useful way against such abuses, now runs the risk of being victimised. According to bbc 4 'Today' this morning, if Jackie Smith gets her way, anyone who dissents in any way against what this government is doing runs a serious risk of being branded an enemy of the state !

Hi Anthony,
George Clooney. He's ok i guess. Brad Pitt does nothing for me at all. Johnny Depp however is another matter altogether. Phew!

Thanks for your lovely observations on my Mandolin poem. I had the same thought about the Rod Stewart connotations but i do love that song anyway. I wrote the poem while listening to a meditation cd and the mandolin was part of the instrumentals.

You have so many poems that you will probably break my mouse scrolling wheel - however I think the ones Ive read so far are exceptional and make me want to bleed new words out of my eyes to somehow defeat you in literature-war.

For now though - I will simply nod and say bravo, you wordy creature. : D x

Thank you for your lovely comment Anthony...
I just read 'Weather Report' And I especially liked this part:

But oceans could not
scour away
the footprints
in the sand of me.
Each stinging kiss
has left its hollow mark
on skin that feels
forever scarred
and stained.

Even though this is very sad and I can feel the depth of emotional pain - it's beautifully written...

Hi Anthony,
thanks for your comment on 'cause and effect.'
Yes it is about being stopped by the police.
I didn't actually mind being stopped, although i'd done nothing wrong. It was his whole attitude in his belief that i had. Not allowing me to speak and his unprovoked verbal attack which i was shocked and upset about. I was simply trying to do my job as he was supposed to be doing his.
The problem is, if i'd got his number and reported it, how much more of the same could i look forward to in the future. It's so frustrating and downright unlawful to use the power of a uniform to vent feelings and cause untold upset to an innocent person, then not even have the decency to admit that this time they got it wrong. I don't get that kind of treatment from some of the most drunk customers let alone the police.
Now i feel much better because i can vent my frustrations in writing. :-)
Thanks again.
Janet.x

Hi Anthony,
thanks for commenting on my haiku.

As to your poem, silent critic. I can relate to cyber bullying, not from personal experience but because of someone on another site i'm involved with completely unconnected to poetry.
She constantly tells everyone at every opportunity about her cyber enemies, writing reams of text. I'm aware this kind of thing happens and not only in cyberspace.

Hi Anthony, what can i say? your new profile pic..instead I will say thank you for reading my posts and taking the time to write such nice comments, sorry it's taken so long to write back. Some of Traveller Sickness autobiographical, some not, small embellishments. Early form of road rage before the phrase,and anger management, became fashionable.Could have been worse.
hope you enjoy the view from there... .D.J.

Hi Anthony,
thanks for your comment on 'why'.
No worries as to the reason you didn't understand it. The dog isn't a metaphor. It's kinda just an observation in relation to the essence of the poem.
I suppose i could have put the word 'like' a sarcophagus but didn't feel the need for it.
To be honest, i was a little unsure of what reaction there would be to it but blogged it to find out. I'm happy with the comments, including yours.
Thanks again for taking the time to read.

Being a fan of clever rhyme and lyricism, I have to say that I loved reading '...not the only fruit'. I bet it's especially good in performance - I could see you winning slams with that one - that's if you haven't done so already.

I am trying to get audio on myself - I've been told you need a mic and a sound card (which apparently my computer already had) and a free downloadable programme called 'Audacity'. So far I've managed to record well enough but I'm having difficulty converting them to mp3 - do you know anyone who is good with computers (most 5 year olds it seems)?
Good luck!
