haikuhaikuRegis L ChapmanRegis, I laughed as I read this for I too have found myself doing the exact same thing, in others haiku's (except for Erzahl's :)) and any attempt of my own. I suspect the majority is with us on that and I, fingers and toes minus three, find yours to follow the rules and bring the bonus of a smile. Thank you. Deb:)2004-02-05 21:20:56
japanese verse 39 (Amnesia)Erzahl Leo M. EspinoErzahl, Yes..yes..yes..How wonderful it is to lose track of time because two are so focused and completed together. Always the romantic, I love this haiku of love.:) Deb:) 2004-02-05 21:15:41
Toilet Soliloquies (Fart One)Mick FraserHi Mick, I laughed as I read this, imagining how many might hold and wait and cringe rather to make the mad dash to the bathroom in fear something will be missed. Unfortunately, this year in my opinion, we could have all taken bathroom breaks during most of the commercials, (Bud did not keep up with the great ones in the past) and I couldn't get too excited with the half time entertainment. Thanks for the laugh. Deb:)2004-02-03 20:43:10
japanese verse 38 (Seahorse)Erzahl Leo M. EspinoErzahl, I don't know how you come up with all these subjects but I do know I am always happy to see another poem of yours on my list. Ocean stallion...wonderful description of the seahorse. And yes, I can see him galloping the reefs:) Another winner. Thank you. Deb:)2004-02-03 20:37:38
untitledRachel F. SpinozaHi Rachel, I don't believe I've read a haiku from you before but this is wonderfully vivid. So easy to see the fog hugging the orchard as unripe oranges are wrapped in mist. No suggestion foe improvement as you follow the 5-7-5 of haiku and you paint the scene well. Deb:)2004-02-03 20:30:23
Blue TideMell W. MorrisMell, You simply enchant me with your words. You heave yourself out of the doldrums and revise your reality. (love that wording) Sun lit air gives me a warm feeling and I would be hard pressed not to delight in such a day. Music lifts my down..like the way you phrased that. And we can be thankful for sunshine and music and everything we have for it is truly given with love from above. I feel a bounce in my step after this one..thank you:) Deb:)2004-02-03 20:26:39
A Life SentenceMell W. MorrisMell, How sad that some experience the lack of love by a parent as you so vividly describe here. Her lack of affection, dismissive gestures, things that will never be forgotten as those things do leave marks on souls. One of my fav lines was, Youth was time served,a mandatory sentence with no early release. To me, that spoke volumes of the pain and unhappiness experienced by the child not cared for. Then the day comes where one finds themselves tending to the mothers needs as they await her final destination. As always, your wording is wonderful and you continue to amaze me with your talents. Anyone dealing with these issues will certainly relate to this poem. Deb:)2004-02-02 19:31:22
MichelleClaire H. CurrierHi Claire, I can certainly relate to this as I have 2 grown daughters, both of whom got married last summer. You bring back the memories of those tiny faces, baby breath, eyes full of wonder and the complete love you have for your children. Thanks for sharing this heartwarming poem..it brought a smile to my face:) Deb:)2004-02-02 19:19:05
DaydreamStormy D MorrisHi Stormy, Welcome to TPL. Being the incurable romantic, I truly enjoyed this poem as you vividly describe two, enwrapped in one another, completely absorbed in love, sharing the wonder of two people connected forever in love. I like this as is and would not change anything. Deb:)2004-02-02 19:16:21
japanese verse 36 (Ku Klux Klan)Erzahl Leo M. EspinoErzahl, This is wonderful! As one who detests racism, this poem goes right to my heart. You've again accomplished much in stating the ugliness of the Ku Klux Klan in 3 short lines. Bravo to you!!! Deb:)2004-02-02 19:09:57
Her Looking Glassmarilyn terwillegerHi Marilyn, This was incredibly sad to read and I felt the pain and lack of desire in this woman after I'm assuming) she experiences the death of her husband.You allow us in this tortured soul, dull and doleful eyes and the unshed tears that has stolen her spirit. Well done, filled with descriptive emotion that I felt to the end. There is only the typo in frozen which did not detract from the poem. Thank you for sharing. Deb:)2004-02-02 19:01:11
Love Me This WayDeniMari Z.Deni, This seems like the perfect love/friendship. The opening is wonderful, two souls sharing without taking control.The 2nd verse is also great but I think you could tighten in a bit just by eliminating"But". #rd verse..Again I think it could be tightened a bit. Respect this love everyday Don't let other things get in the way Love is never the same - For anyone on Earth, Each heart feels different starting (Beginning in place of starting may keep the flow going) at birth Again I enjoyed the thoughts shared and you have created the perfect scenario between two..simply offering a few thoughts.:) Deb:)2004-02-02 18:50:58
japanese verse 37 (Top)Erzahl Leo M. EspinoHi Erzahl, Ballerina girl spins magic for her master just as you spin magic for us readers. You are the master of haiku. As always, I enjoyed very much your work. Keep them coming:) Deb:)2004-01-29 21:02:13
For Mikey and NaneenThomas Edward WrightThomas, This broke my heart as I read each painful line. Mikey, so full of life and yet so not. Never is it fun to watch people go from this life to the next, but it is extremely difficult to deal with the death of a young child, innocent and what should be a full life ahead of him. Each depiction of the trials Mikey endured was felt as if I were there. Thank God for Naneen and all the people who loved Mikey and all the memories he leaves to those here.You've done a wonderful job, portraying Mikey in his short life. No suggestions for improvement. Simply wonderful. Deb:)2004-01-29 20:59:55
DENIALMick FraserMick, Great use of denial. Drowning in my own world...how often we get absorbed in just ourselves refusing to deal with issues we need to address. We are only ignorant in the fact that most of us pick and choose what to deal with. I certainly am guilty of that. Then the day comes where we must all face things we haven't..whether in this life or not. Thanks for sharing. Deb:)2004-01-27 21:08:19
OrbituarySergio M chavezHi Sergio, I find this quite depressing and have to wonder if these are truly your personal thoughts. Whether you or not, the person here is filled with complete despair and is desperately calling out for help. We all make mistakes, we all do wrong, but then we have to pick ourselves up and get on with life. Life is far to precious to waste on regrets and past errors. The poem is well done as it hits me hard with the sadness. If this is your release(writing) keep plugging away:) Deb:)2004-01-27 21:04:04
A Poem to ParentsErica L. BadgerErica, This piece truly tugged at my heart as I recently experienced the marriages of my two daughters. These words expressed here are words that went through my mind..I taught them what I knew..I told them to dance, to never let go of their dreams and I will be with them wherever they go. What a beautiful tribute to your parents. I know they are proud. Your poem is simply stated with a wonderful message. Keep it up. Deb:)2004-01-27 17:37:42
beep-beepThomas Edward WrightThomas, It makes one wonder how we survived without all the gadgets that are at our disposal today. Cell phones, computers,etc are nice conveniences for sure but I often wonder if it wouldn't be a slower paced and friendly place if we returned to days much simpler..a time where we had time for family, friends and were not constantly on the run with our cell phones bbbeeping away. You remind me by this poem that conveniences can also be nuisances. Deb:) 2004-01-27 17:28:31
Beautiful NatureRobin Ann CrandellWow Robin, If you were going for visuals and erotic, you certainly accomplished it with this one. You takes us each step of the way as lovers breathe magic together every inch of the way. I think you may have people breathing heavier after reading this:) You've done a great job as tou very descriptively join two together. Deb:)2004-01-26 21:00:20
FearSergio M chavezSergio, This poem shows so many intense emotions and I feel your fears, uncertainties and doubts about yourself. I am not sure if this is a poem written about yourself but I do know it is one that speaks of one who has felt much pain and wants desperately to be accepted for who and what he is. It speaks of little self esteem, self hatred and a plea to be understood, forgiven for past wrongs and hopefully the will and desire to go on and put the past behind. It is a disturbing piece because there is so much sadness here. If this is you, I hope you are finding healing and peace. Thanks for sharing this very honest and deeply emotional work. Best to you. Deb:)2004-01-26 20:55:20
Farther FatherRegis L ChapmanRegis, I was anxious to read your confessional and it not not disappoint. You've done a wonderful job releasing the pain felt. I'm guessing you never felt you measured up to your father or he perhaps never saw you as an equal. It continues to amaze me how our childhood affects us far into the throes of adulthood. You found the strength to believe in yourself and moved on. The last line is by far the most poignant to me. You knew I could fly but never told me. Ahh..I can feel the hurt and pain and I choked back tears because I know there are many who continue to struggle with issues such as these. Thank you for sharing and I hope you continue to be able to express yourself in this way. Deb:)2004-01-26 20:38:57
Beautifulmadge B zaikoHi Madge, I really like the theme of this poem. A woman, trying and trying to find the one who sees her as beautiful only to find again and again, plenty of embraces but never truly what she wanted. Your ending linee...And it is I only that must understand that? That is the very essence of this poem to me. Once one believes they are beautiful, without and within, they have succeeded and others will perceive you as the same. I'm curious, has this play been done? I can almost see this as a musical with the lady singing this very song:) Great job. Deb:) 2004-01-26 20:32:40
Tornadomarilyn terwillegerMarilyn, I have experienced the wrath that you describe and the power a tornado emits is power beyond description. Absolute destruction, devasting ruin well describes this storm of nature. You have done well with your first acrostic..keep them coming:) Deb:)2004-01-26 20:24:56
Shadow of StillDeniMari Z.Hi Demi, I really like the simplicity and ease in reading this poem and yet your message is one we should hear.It is human nature I think to sometimes get lost in your troubles and pain but as stated here, we have so much to be thankful for and the future looks brightly ahead. I firmly believe in holding onto your dream so that was my favorite line in your poem. Strength, belief in yourself and determination will always keep us moving forward. I really enjoyed this and can offer no suggestions..it stands on its own. Deb:)2004-01-26 20:22:09
WMD (acrostic)Mick FraserMick, You have succeeded not only in an acrostic poem well done but raised issues for sure as to the decisions Bush has made and the effect it has not only on the US but on all people. Some may find the need to defend him and some may believe he did what needed to be done. However, I know I am not the only one who will understand and have questioned the very candid and honest words of your poem. Well done. I have no suggestions as this is superb. Deb:)2004-01-26 20:09:50
ACROSTICRegis L ChapmanHi Regis, Wonderful first acrostic. Not only do you make use of each letter well, you do indeed strike a chord of laughter as I think of how and what we subject ourselves to in the name of writing. Acrostic are not easy to write where the words and meaning flows but you've done just that. Humor never hurts and you bring a smile to my face. Thanks for sharing. Deb:)2004-01-26 20:03:51
Falling in Love with Food (revised)Mick FraserHi Mick, Your original was funny..adding the take my ham only adds to the laughter. Hope to see more from you. Deb:)2004-01-26 20:00:09
Falling in Love with FoodMick FraserHi Mick, As I hummed the great Elvis tune, I laughed my way through your poem. Sometimes it is nice to see the humor in life and here you show us just that. Well done and it brings laughter on this cold and icy day. Deb:)2004-01-25 14:33:10
Belongingsiddharth GopalakrishnaSiddarth, This poem reveals what so many people have experienced. How often we percieve rejection, sure that we are not part of the whole and waste so much time concerned about what we are not (or what we think we are not) until tumbling and turning, we awake with maturity and time and realize it was not as we thought. I like the simplicity of this and yet you tell a great story. Deb:)2004-01-25 14:09:25
New YearMick FraserHi Mick, This was a creative description of the Chinese New Year which is as you may or may not know, one of the Chinese favorite year as they believe the year of the monkey is a fertile year proding more children. The poem follows through well from start to finish. The only thing that needs correcting is the typo of twilight in the first line. Deb:)2004-01-25 14:03:37
Under my MukluksMick FraserHi Mick.. This poem is very descriptive. I especially liked white-ice walls,furnace like warmth and wind whipped clouds. The chill of the present combined with the warmth of a bright future flows nicely and the ending speaks of hope and desire of a brighter, warmer future. Well done. I truly enjoy these poems that relate to life. Deb:)2004-01-17 23:06:07
Day At The Beachmarilyn terwillegerMarilyn, I was intrigued from the start as I love the ocean and always enjoy a poem that includes the sights and sounds and here you describe them well. I could almost imagine salt covered lips from the ocean spray and see the terns begging for food. It seems so idylic until you put life into perspective and see the suffering going on beyond the waves and calming effect of the ocean. It makes me think too of all we take for granted and the sad state of the world currently. Excellent job portraying these thoughts. I saw only one slight flaw..the spelling of horizon. Excellent work..thank you for sharing. Deb:)2003-11-26 21:21:32
japanese verse 30 (Vulture)Erzahl Leo M. EspinoHi Erzahl, As always, I am amazed by your talent with haiku's. You've managed to portray the vulture perfectly in 3 lines. Keep them coming. Deb:)2003-11-26 21:15:49
Root of EvilDonna Carter SolesHi Donna, I'm guessing this could be one of many emotions..hatred, jealousy, etc. Your poem speaks volumes of regret and inability to change the feelings felt. I believe we all struggle with similiar feelings and it is so hard to try to overcome them. Sadly, it can take control and take your soul along. You say a lot with each thought conveyed, meaningful.
