Re: Spectacle of Death

Deb - I had a very long and in depth comment written, but I left the laptop for a while to do a few other things.  When I came to complete it and submit it I found that i had been logged off - Tracy and I will have words and not necessarily poetic ones.   http://www.tangledbranch.com/boards/images/s...

Re: Dark Matter

Wonderful, painful, bleak writing.  If N in this and in "Waiting" is you, I send solace and peace - and I wish your father safe journey.

I have no words....

Re: Ink

Very nice, Colm.  Evocatively written, pulling at stored items and thoughts.  You strike so many interwoven chords here.  Especially "keys without locks", "in a cardboard box", "for no reason", except there was a powerful reason - inability to let go... which you explore wonderfully. I personally li...

Re: Holiday Woe

Thanks Tracy, Deb and Poet-e............ I recorded it before Christmas at my "kitchen table" and am now awaiting the magic clean-up work that my friend Shawn does in his basement hide-out/studio.  He's currently "offline", so it might be a while.

Re: Bodies

I like this write a lot, Dave - like Tracy says some wonderful lines, and a really difficult topic. I read with interest your back and forth with Colm... It took your discussion with Colm for me to realize that there were wasps that N was happily feeding jam in jars, plus those "three" other wasps w...

Re: Holiday Woe

Thanks Colm and Tracy. Yes, Tracy, a good vocalist takes an interpretive approach to bumps and it can play out well, sometimes enhances the song. The last stanza has evolved into 3 new stanzas:      What happened to Christmas      That star's soothing glow      Simpler times of old      Veiled in Yu...
