Please visit my web site and drop me a line...even just to say...Hey! Glad we had this moment to connect....Good luck to you, fellow wanderer.

A Woman CombingThomas Edward WrightDear TEW; A beautiful work..Lovingly describing the interaction of mother and daughter combing hair. Very fluid descriptions remarkable in its subtle touch and depth...as it alludes to the natural flow of water and life itself.... A Very moving and touching poem... Love it... Wonderful, as is;I do not have the skill to add to this work. Always your friend, Gerard 2006-02-04 15:19:43
Drummer boyMark Andrew HislopDear Mark: Loved this piece about your son learning to play the drums...torturing his audience... The DNA part is an allusion to his hereditary lack of musical ability....inherited from his "old man"//??? Lovely that he should torture the neighbors first, afterall what are neighbors for? Very enjoyable piece....especially for the musically challenged....confession.....I'm so musically challenged I can't even play the radio. Thanks for sharing, Your friend, Gerard2006-01-28 21:54:59
I Know YouJames C. HorakDear James: You are preaching to the choir with this one. Sure, we all feel this way if we care to be honest.... and dishonest poetry could be a poetry of technical devices....but lacking in passion... something the pedants love to deride with their penchant for meters and rhyme schemes and allusions to other poetical works....when all that's really necessary is the blatant human soul crying its message loud and clear....baring its honest soul to the voyeurs who masquerade as literature critics. especially liked..."courage of the moment could have other worlds, other things to look behind. Thanks for this inner look at the psyche of all who dare to express themselves through the public forum and whipping post of sharing poetry.2006-01-28 21:30:53
The Poorly DressedJames C. HorakDear James; This is a very engaging work. The poet is seen as not dressed well, not meeting someone's perception of appropriate dress in poetics. Rhyming the first two lines in the third stanza and apologizing not here to poem that way. Going on with the explanation that the delivery of good poetry doesn't have to conform to any rhyming scheme and rhyming the second and third lines of the fourth stanza (oops!) This is a very entertaining device....bringing a slapstick burlesque-like quality in the delivery of this poem. Imaginative,unique, new to me... I enjoyed it tremendously. Thanks for sharing your artistry... I cannot add anything to improve your work. Thanks for the opportunity to read this poem. Your friend, Gerard2006-01-28 20:28:42
AllureJames C. HorakDear James; Congratulations! You are alive and vulnerable! This Goddess, this silent Siren has engaged and whetted your animal essence with not just a look, but the look. Will you run? Will you do emotional battle without armor? What good is innocence....when you could have an equal, or heaven forbid, a better. Loved this piece...the game is old as daisies, but you have written it fresh as a seventeen year old. Thanks for the treat, Gerard2006-01-26 13:21:33
Soon, a YearThomas Edward WrightDear TEW; A wonderful,thoughtful, poignant work on the passing of the years....reminisced as you ponder the aged oak around which you raised your family... I like this work....it has all the feeling and understanding of a life well spent, and well thought. without going into all the petty details. I come away refreshed with the rightness of this wholesome work... Thanks for sharing, Gerard2006-01-26 09:28:22
The Nobility of CatsKenneth R. PattonDear Kenneth; I'm sorry I missed your first two poems in your trilogy of cats. I like this ode on the nobility of Cats. I like that you refer to the missing warmth of the cat's presence. After all isn't that why we allowed them to domesticate us in the first place! thanks for this piece. Gerard2006-01-26 09:15:45
