Hello Tracey. It's good to hear from you. I hope you are well in these difficult times. Thank you for the marvelous surprise review and the outstanding rating for The Wanderer. The last stanza requires a little tinkering to find the right words, but other than that, the poem simply flowed.
I appreciate your encouraging words and the six stars very much. Thank you.
Best wishes to you.
Robert

Hello there, Mystery writer.

You have certainly written a poem that exudes both love and a deep friendship with your only son.

You are one very lucky man :)

I wish you luck in the contest.

much love

Dear trimple sorry it took so long for me to get back to you in my poem I am referring to thinking about colors. For example how to explain color to a blind person. I could say brown is the smell of smoke and wet wood chips.

Good evening to you, Ellie

I'm so sorry, but I have no idea what your poem is referring too.

Perhaps it's because I live in the U.K and it's an American thing? Or maybe I'm just thick as two short planks :)

I look forward to hearing from you!

much love

What Few Hearts Find by MissMerri

Hello there, Missmerri

You have written a wonderful love story. It reads quite fairytale like :)

I have made a couple or so suggestions that you may on indeed, may not wish to consider.

and listened [as hot][still, as]? teardrops stung my eyes.

I kissed her as she [plucked her harp's thin strings] [as she played her soulful strings?]

and hope[d that I'd return for many years?]for my return, long, lonely years.

that rare and special love [few hearts will find?]so few hearts find.


kindest regards

tracey

Pillars of Gold by Gloria ....

Exceptional

Good morning, Gloria

Your splendid poem speaks of a sad world to come, and yet we seem powerless to stop it.

Although mankind = art and creativity, we seem driven to destroy the most beautiful creation of all-- our natural world.

My favorite line is --

harmonious notes through the sandalwood fen.

The following verse is so tragic but beautifully told.

For you who can hear all the animals crying
will know when the trees have become violins,
will know when the stones have awakened as trumpets,
will know when the dying of music begins.

I hope this poem is selected for the 'poem of the month'

Wonderful!

Kind regards

I have a proclivity towards crassness, so I would hardly be critical of that. I just thought your work was fun, and I enjoyed reading it. You are most welcome, Tracey.

Not a shaggy dog story. by trimple

Crass, most likely... but you have very good rhyme, very good rhythm and a flow of words that make your poem easy to read. I wish you good luck in the contest .

I believe whole heartedly in what you say, Tracey. I believe we have all kinds of people with different needs. The one's that bother me involve children, rape and violence. Digressing, I think there are some people out there that have little interest in sex, so they really wouldn't be giving up much. Then, there are philosophies out there I just don't quite comprehend. For me specifically, I seldom have doubts about my decisions. Just turning 72, I don't see that changing. I enjoyed your in depth review, and I wish you well.

Change Of Heart by victor 66

Good evening, Victor,

Congratulations on winning the '100-word flash fiction' contest.

Your story takes but a moment or two to read, and yet it led me to consider many questions thereafter.

Being a non-believer of any Gods, (past or present,) It's only natural for me to sit here and say, 'Best choice you could have made.' But I can't because I'm not seeing or feeling the way you do.

I can imagine celibacy and I can imagine what it might be like to live within the confines of strict order. But I cannot imagine it being in any way normal, according to the 'natural' world we all live in.

To live with and be a part of the 'natural world, is for me, about as Godly as you can possibly be. Nature is God.

I hope that you made the right decision, my friend and that your wife is fulfilled with all the joy a man can bring to another human being.

Much love

tracey

Hello Tracey.
Why do people think my poems are autobiographical? I'm always a nice guy! Well maybe not, but I think I'm becoming more patient with age.... or perhaps it's just I don't care anymore. Haha!
Not my dog in the picture I'm afraid. I have for company a mongrel who was born on the streets but has lived with me since she was a puppy. Children: I have a few, grandkids too and they all know how to twist me round their little fingers, but, on balance, they do treat me well. As for the monkey, what he's saying in my ear and what I'm saying out loud often diverge!

Thanks for an insightful and amusing review Tracey.

Love to you too, Peter

This Other Guy by PeterRHW

Good evening, Peter

I was just browsing the writers I'd fanned and thought I'd pop over to see what I'd missed.

I love the picture of your ole Bulldog. He looks (they all look) as grumpy as hell, and yet, most of them are especially lovely and wonderful with kids.

I don't know what ya like with kids, but the Bulldog is a perfect choice, given the topic of your poem.

We all have an inner self, I think. When we are quiet and yet those cogs are churning away, that's the other 'us' :)

I suppose though, that some people have the ability to switch off that monkey on a chain when in the company of others, whilst others still, have that little bugger unchained at times and let him get up to all sorts of unsavory antics. lol

I enjoyed this poem, Peter.

You're not alone, mate :)

much love

tracey

Lol. I don't know what's going on with the site. I've tried to look up your profile page numerous times and each time I do it's like there's too much going on and sometimes the site's thinking and sometimes it doesn't even let the circle thing in the middle even move for the site to think. Every time, whether it thinks or not, it will always freeze my computer up. I just tried it again and the same thing happened. Just filling you in.
I don't know, it's sort of like Dean's profile page. But on his page there's just simply too much stuff going on, so I'm not sure why it happens when I go to yours.

Hey, Tracey, hello. You could tell it was me? I was trying to disguise myself because I rarely take the angle of kids reading books for a contest entry, lol. Thank you so much for the great review and support, Tracey. I'm glad you liked my little offering. Have a great day.
