Re: The Profane

Hooray Another post--NaPo poets are coming back to life slowly but surely. This write needs no music but I did hear some in my head as I read it. Mother Nature in your poem speaks as well for the very vermin she intends to rid herself of, me for instance, I drive a car with an internal combustion e...

Re: The Profane

Hi Colm - glad to be back.  Hope to put in an appearance once in a while and go a few rounds now that the NaPo gloves are off  ;) I agree that a free form poem might paint the gravity of the message a bit more strongly, but this is a song, written to composed music... these are lyrics induced by the...

The Profane

I came up with some music a few days ago and as often happens the music tickled my Muse and some lyrics started to take shape. So, outside from the shelter of NaPo 2020, let the arrows fly !!!

Re: Songs - the other poetry

Hi Deb - glad you got an opportunity to listen to the song and wrap yourself up in it.  Glad you liked it.   Guitar is a very lovely instrument.  So much fun to learn to play.  You should pick it up again and teach yourself what you taught those elementary school kids.  I love your description "like...

Re: Crabgrass Receives a Reply

I struggle for words, Marcel.  I didn't know, didn't even conceive, that such a writing could exist. I've read and reread it several times.  Like Linda says, the style on the page forces the reader so slow down.  I feel this is taking from all the books of wonderful poetry you have written about lif...

Re: The Boys Were Having a Little Fun

Interesting commentary and thoughts, Colm and Dave.

Linda, this one grabbed me, timely, it shoots straight.  Like it a lot - pretty much leave it alone, it needs no help.

Interesting article, Colm.  Unpleasant food for thought.
