A Race is Ending by Marillion

Softly beautiful and greatly inspiring, bro. I think among your father's greatest achievements is raising sons who feel like this. People do not inspire respect, devotion and tenderness accidentally.

You know you can call me anytime, right?

Bear,

This was an absolutely wonderful read. Lovely, lovely, lovely. Thank you! I'd give you five stars just for your Author Notes alone. I hope you had a very blessed Easter, something tells me every day is Easter in *your* heart. Amen to that.

The Only Star by Marillion

Hi Bro,

You're applying your verbal acuity to song lyrics--cool. This is kind of a Mach piece, isn't it? Part of your musical trilogy in D minor? It made me weep instantly when I read it.

Seriously, this is lovely. Of course, I interpret it as a Christian worship song, but that's just me. :)

An Old Man's Hand by K.P.

Hi Ken,

You always manage to capture an element of the profound in your poetry regardless of its length.

I like this short poem.

Whose hand is it? Why, it belongs to someone who's cradled children and grandchildren; petted generations of dogs and puppies; painstakingly painted platoons of miniature soldiers; embraced a beautiful woman for over 40 years; and recently built a truly awesome shed in the backyard.

That's whose hand it it.

Attention, Shoppers by Marillion

Excellent

Well, now. The shelves may indeed be empty, but I still believe there's a treasure in the back room that hasn't yet made it onto the floor. Call it shopper's intuition. :)

Love the imagery in here. I could picture the scene very clearly, and it was fun to read. Why if the message weren't so bleak, I might even have enjoyed it more (smile).

Bro, bro, bro. How's that battle-weary heart bandaged? With paper or plastic?

Howdy Bro ~

How are you? This is interesting because it has an air of acceptance juxtaposed against a type of fatalistic cycling. It's hopeful and wearying at the same time. It brought to mind the mindset of one facing an addiction or compulsion--aware of the reality of problem but feeling powerless to change it.

You're still the bomb, bro.

Ken,

This is so lovely! It has such a dreamy and swaying rhythm and reads almost like a metered poem, but it's free verse. I especially love your repetition of "whip-poor-will." As soft and enchanting as the rest of the poem.

Nice one!

Lo

PS - As a singer, I give you bonus points for using "contrapuntal" correctly. :)

Ken,

I have a feeliing this poem is *way* too profound and beautiful to be fully appreciated in this venue. I simply love this transcendent and reaching work. *sigh*

*sniff, sniff*

Aww, now you've gone and got me all sentimental and sniffly. What a great poem, R! A wonderful way to start the Christmas season. This has humor, nostalgia, and killer metrics. Good luck in the contest. You've got my vote and a sixer to boot. I hope your nephew loves Golly as much as you do. We all know that beloved stuffed toys have feelings, too.

Hi Chas,

Simply and poignantly written. Very very nice.

Keep fighting the good fight. Love is the best reason I know to show up and stay in the game. Some days (weeks, months, years) are easier than others.
