    From pommer on The Terrorist

    Hi Mike,
    sorry to be a bit late with my comment, but I have so much to do at the moment.Yes. how very true..Why can’t they live and let live, instead of refusing to integrate and to want to destroy everything that is dear to us who love and cherish this country?All they want to do is take and destroy without giving.I like the way they make religion their excuse the bastards.I mustn’t get going on the subject,my dear late wife would have said here he goes again,Ha,Ha. I hope that both of you are allright, be lucky,
    Peter.

    From Whale on Schubert's terrible love

    I love Schubert too and this poem lauding his work and regretting his senseless death is fitting tribute to a great composer. Well done.

    From Whale on About A Motorway

    You have a wonderful gift – there is good rhythm to this verse and you express your thoughts very well. However, I wish you would use your talents for some other thought-provoking subject. I am surprised that at 204 years of age, you still have not come to the conclusion that some types of progress are necessary. The car let’s us travel far and wide to see new places; lorries and trucks deliver goods faster door-to-door; and we need to stop along the way to eat (buttercup teas) and rest and relieve ourselves and, of course, refill the petrol tank. So we need highways and roads and all that goes with it. There is a lot of land and time left over for people to enjoy gentle sunshine streams and watch clouds and dream dreams and ponder the bluebell dell. I shall look for more of your work as you have style and flair in your verse.

      I could not agree less ha ha (re progress) – but thanks for your comments – if you do read any of my stuff you’ll see that I have superficial fickle interests across the board 🙂 Rick.
      If you can get the pm function here to work and send me a postal address I’ll mail a copy of my book – it has gone almost viral and costing me a fortune in postage 🙂

    From Whale on Beyond forgiveness

    I am not a lover of this modern poetry form, no metre, no consistent rhythm. I can take no rhyming, but I am unable to judge this kind of poetry. So let me just say, I sense your bitterness and fierce anger. The latter has driven you slightly to over-indulge in words, some of which do not really belong – e.g. dirty, wasted rag. (aesthetically out of place); and fatally endures forever. If it’s fatal, it cannot endure, for it dies. However, the pain is palpable and we feel it in our gut. That is your success with this piece.

      From aurelio on Beyond forgiveness

      Actually, there is metre, consistently iambic all the way, though not demonstratively poetic but rather masked. Thanks for your comment.

    Jolen.
    what a wonderful complete story and what a great use of the world of crystal.full of passion .yes I understand.I particularly like lines 6 and,7 I have given both breath and blood:
    To hollow out a home fit for love.
    A pleasure to read Jolen, well done..Peter.

    From stormwolf on Seduction

    Hi Jolen,
    I am most familiar with this seduction.
    The temptation that can almost be enchanting in its appeal. I may well have succumbed on more than one occasion had I not been so filled with dread on where I may find myself.
    Best to just keep forging ahead and wear our battle scars with pride.
    Another superior piece.

    From stormwolf on Your last days.

    You SHALL be together once again. Some may disagree but that is my own personal conviction.
    Love conquers ALL… Even death,

    take care

      From pommer on Your last days.

      Thank you for reading my little piece,Yes, both Edna I firmly believed that one day we will be together again. Where and when, no one knows,but the thought of it gives us hope,and where would we all be without this little four letter word? Be lucky,

    From stormwolf on The Red Rose.

    Hi Peter,
    What a beautifully moving poem and the sentiments behind it too. Nature can always speak to us in times of sorrow reminding us of the higher power that made all things. I think a rose is so beautiful it is almost other-worldly,
    Congrats on the nib

      Thank you for reading my poem. Yes I agree, I have always believed that there is so much beauty in nature which unfortunately is so often lacking in humanity..I receive a lot of consolation ,especially now walking through the fields of our beautiful Devon. Thank you Alison,best wishes Peter.xxx

    From pommer on Spent

    Alison,
    what a wonderful way to describe the effects of this dreadful disease.It brought tears to my eyes, reading your words,reminding me of the Sunday, exactly eight weeks ago today ,when I sat at my wife’s bedside until her last breath holding hands..It was by no means easy, but in some ways a happy release for my darling. Stay strong Alison,
    Peter

      Hi Peter,
      Your comment brought tears to my eyes 🙁
      Although we love them very much, it is better to see them released from the prison of the body to be free.
      Do take care of yourself.

    Too bloody true! So sick of them and our limp wristed government, who put them before our safety. Have to lie down now 😉
