From Fly Me to the Moonon
Can I have pepperoni on mine?
A loving testimony to everlasting friendship; and isn’t it friends that we find ourselves?
From A Ghazalon
I hadn’t previously heard of the ghazal form; and if Bhi commends yours it must be worthy. That apart I liked the sentiments; thanks Luigi
Yes, a poem with a message: reconciliation of the dead for the living.
From Mother’s Dayon
I think of Thetis, with Achilles shield; and what a woman! Turning an act of sadistic cruelty into a proud stand; and yes, also of love; a most apt work CW.
What a great work, by any standard; I read it engrossed, and read it again and again; a pic please?
On purely technical appreciation, I found the last stanza built a convincing rhyme, from the first to the fourth lines, and of course the last two lines; and for me this closed the poem beautifully; but that is just how I found it, and it is a strong – thought provoking work – thank you.
I can only echo Allen’s sentiments. The same also applies to climate change, we are all living in the same house, aren’t we?
This magnifying glass of a poem exposed human nature and feelings. Paring open layers of a family coping with their grief. Asking the eons old question, why him/her/them/me.
I’d be interested to see how this goes down on ABC. I think it would do well.
(I might take a peek)
This is an amazing poem. Your Mother’s day poem had a message, yes, but this message really cuts. The depth of forgiveness of the Vietnamese people is truly astounding.
It’s a lesson unlearned by many cultures including my own and yours. Forgive and forget seems so hard for them. The Vietnamese make it look easy.
