Grrr...eat picture! Stone Henge grandpa? I learn so much from your writing. How to compose, which words to use is important. Composition is extremely important. Not considering myself a learned writer such as yourself. You really put your thinking-cap on when you write. Your story/poem takes the reader on a journey of firstly, innocence then curiosity, greed. Finally that curiosity grabbed the seeker by the short and curly's! Well done, great atmosphere Dean.

That's like something out of the twilight zone. I felt sorry for the traveller and maybe identified with him also. Sometimes honesty can be uncomfortable. Gretchen rhythmic flow. I liked the rhyming. Great job. Gtetchen

Your story is excellent and a warning to those who seek adventure in strange places unaware of the dangers that may reside there. The seeker may find death waiting for him. Excellent poetics and the pictures appropriate.

Dean,

After reading this 3 times, I now understand the story. Your presentation is awesome--the artwork & sound effects set the tone for what follows. The color scheme is perfect--eerie & scary rolled into one.

You did an awesome job with the internal rhyme, ending rhyme, alliteration & smooth flow of the lines. I read it aloud & it sounded great with the sounds playing, too.

This reminds me of the Black Plague although I know it is about leprosy. This awesome work of art is like a page from a history book focusing on the Middle Ages.

You are right about your selection of the title. This one is 'it.' Readers know form the title that something not so good will happen.

What a sad event that the 'ranger' could not allow the pauper to help him. I guess he thought he was so much better & didn't want to be contaminated by the poor. Little did he know. People act that way still. How many homeless are looked down on because of their outward appearance?

You have created a fantastic piece of art on so many levels with this poem.

Excellent! Jan

I loved your poem and the spooky feeling it creates. It feels do much like Pie. The wording, the pattern, And the mood are so similar. Very skillfully done.

    No sixes are ever necessary, Jimi, just as long as you enjoyed what you read and were able to take something away from it after having done so.
    Take care,

Okie Dokie ! The search for oneself, if I'm not mistaken,
May be forlorn, or even forsaken.

This in my opinion, if not the best--certainly, up there with the best.
In my mostest, humblest analysis, I can say without fear of contradiction,
that this piece of work is....OK.

To be serious though...Par-excellence, a real cracking good read, brilliant.
Everything fits--superb rhyming, rhythm, and message---very enjoyable.
However, it is so good, that " lesion" stands out like a sore thumb. Winty.

reply by WintyBoy on 12-Oct-2016
    Well, thank you good sir, for thanking me. The reason, why I like this piece, is:
    because the character you portray might as well be me. It takes me to places that I recognise. For where-ever it is going, I'm coming back from there.
    All I can see right now, and I tell only you--"fellow poet," ahead, a narrowing,
    darkened, drooping- tree lined road--
    I never look back, as I know where I've been. In the distance, a little way to go,
    as yet--a Victorian- like archway. beyond which is what I presume to be a
    a person, but obscured in the darkness by a radiant, brilliant light.
    Now I'm not religious--you tell me ???
    But for sure, that's one place I've never been. Your work would be empty if it didn't reveal--"Intellect, humility, and a
    sense of humour, including the courage
    to write it your way. In short it is your character shining through the darkness!
    This for me makes it interesting. Verily.
    And now for a cup of tea, and my med.


reply by the author on 12-Oct-2016
    That's very kind of to say, Winty.
    I could also say much the same regarding your own work.
    Thanks again, my friend.
    And please, call me King Nothing.
    All of my good friends do (go figure?)

Men rarely ask for help anyway, Dean. You should
know that. It has been the death of many a man!
This excellent craftsmanship, both in the write and
in your presentation. -Bill

Your way with words and the story you tell whenever one reads it. You bring them into the story which is a gift you have and not only that educate us on word usage and origins. ???
