I am known for my love of chickens - now I'm not so sure. Pure spook fest!! I did not know you had so many writes like this. But I will have to read a little at time as I must work my fingers to the bone to afford to display my stuff. You are a genius!

    This was an oldie from 2016, Dr. Ricky.
    If I'm not mistaken the poem came in first or second in FanStory's Poem of the Month contest.
    Thanks for resurrecting it and giving it a go.
    Much appreciated.

Dean,
How are you dear friend. Well dear one, leave it to you. Not only has philosophical waxing evident in your brilliant work, but I feel the influence of Poe no doubt. You are truly a master artist. I apologize for being so late in reviewing.

your fan always

Jimi

I thoroughly enjoyed this I like the way it rhymes twice in one line ( I must ask) dewdrops dipped beneath the awning ( I can picture them dripping from ) have I missed something here. A great poem and I am beginning to understand and learn Thank you, Friend****kahpot

    Just a poem, inspired by a dream, undoubtedly brought about by my family and I watching a sci-fi/horror movie marathon one evening, kahpot.
    That's all this is meant to be, nothing more.
    Thanks for reading.

This is like dreaming you're drowning, and waking up with relief, to find yourself above water - but then you realise you're tied to a railway line, and there's a train coming.
"It was all just a dream... BLAM!!!"
Love it.
i enjoyed the notes beneath it, too. I must check out some of those wonderful old horror movies. I like to watch humans battling with unconvincing giant creatures.
Eeeeek!

All the best,
Jane

    If you love that kind of thing then you'll get a kick out of those movies I mentioned, Jane.
    Thanks for reading. I appreciate you taking the time to do do.
    Take care.

    Thank you very much for reading this "Nature Gone Haywire" poem, Padu, and for the very generous six stars as well.
    I really do appreciate it.
    I sincerely apologize for my delayed response.
    I am very pleased to know that you enjoyed my attempt at trochaic octameter.
    Take care, my friend, and enjoy the remainder of your weekend.
    Thanks so much again!

Ah well, I remember, it was the Saturday double-feature
at the Fox and Oratani
and each movie's horrid creature
Evil there, quite uncanny
The Spider, The Ant, The Bee, The Blob, The Thing
each title and plot does escape me
for this was the time of the Radiation fear
with air raid drills under desks, against walls
and we laughed and poked each other
But at night the dreams would come
nightmares all, we'd wake up screaming
Thanks for reminding me of those pleasant days and dreams
and nightmares.
You've channeled Edgar very well
He must be smiling, if that's a thing he can do
wherever he may be
for somehow through time and shadows
he found Harold Dean Cook
and touched your pen or keyboard
Great picture in your author notes
Well done
RS

An excellent poem derived from existing works of others and hatched in a dream, very classical. Perhaps the threats could have been related to the real threats to the environment that we face. The last verse could be rewritten to do so. Very appropriate graphics throughout and sound effects. Notes also appreciated.

Wow. This is great. What is the rhyme scheme?
It reminds me of something but i cant quite put my finger on it. Watching 3 of those back to back could be overkill. No pun intended


 Comment Written 25-Apr-2017



reply by the author on 25-Apr-2017
    The rhyme scheme is trochaic octameter, DALLAS, and it's the same meter Edgar Allan Poe used to write his Gothic classic poem, The Raven.
    I enjoyed your punny review, and I'm very grateful for the six and positive feedback.
    Thanks so much again for reading. I really appreciate it!

Dean--
Ah, you mention a dream here. "Foolish dream." I had one. Foolish dream. You sent me a letter in which you apologized for being the Clown in the Spawn flicks.

In the context here that might be "God's dream," or God's message to you, the dreamer, in this poem.

I took the message of the dream to be not to "play" the various characters in the "Divine" drama of, say, Them, world's end.

This is well done, but, again, not my thing and for me, at least, the adherence to the lingo of Gothic horror means you adhere to the precepts of Gothic Horror. Those precepts are bars from which is is terribly hard to escape.

For me, at least, that's a shame.

Best
Wabigoon/Jeff

    Too bad, Jeff.
    I adore Gothic literature and I always will.
    I'm not alone there, either.
    Thanks.

    Keep your adoration of the lamb away from real dreaming, please.

    Thanks

    Ovinaphobia is a bitch.

reply by the author on 25-Apr-2017
    Oh, you don't know what Ovinaphobia is?
    Google it...

reply by Wabigoon on 25-Apr-2017
    Nope--
    But if you mean how in the hell do eggs that hatch such awful things get inside of us, oh, yes, I certainly do. But I see it as our responsibility to keep such out, not lay there with the "legs" of our dreams wide open, so to speak, thank you. Not to clowns, not to "God" and certainly not to Mary Shelley and her novel.

    Jeff

reply by the author on 25-Apr-2017
    I'm not one for the type of maniacal rambling nonsense you write either, Jeff.
    That's why I do not review you.
    Feel free to do the same with my work in the future.
    I won't mind...

reply by Wabigoon on 26-Apr-2017
    Dean--
    I sort of apologize. I did have a dream in which I received a letter from you containing an apology. There is a whole back stage to this and I tried to shortcut it when it can't be and shouldn't be. The information contained in the letter may be enough, it explained certain things to me.

    I can comprehend how you think I might be rambling...I'm not. I may decide to go a bit further with this but only in PM if I do and if then with detailed explanations. I respect your efforts enough to think you deserve that.

    My point is, and you know it, I think -- this stuff is real. It's real for your poem, it's real in the night and it's real in a way that...mocks literature.

    Thanks for your patience.
    Wabigoon/Jeff
