Re: Dream upon the Mourning light

Cate
A parting note - if I offended you apologies.

Just count yourself lucky that Michael doesn't pick on your grammar & spelling.
;-) Ciao

Re: Dream upon the Mourning light

Well done Michael - true to form, you've driven another person off the site and you used your pseudo-carefree attitude to avoid any kind of discussion. Do Manna and the "other women" (apparently only those who offer cyber-blowjobs qualify) need your misogynistic protection? I very much doubt it. But...

Re: Dream upon the Mourning light

" I'm pleased you are less defensive than others are on your behalf." Michael, you obviously believe implicitly that people care about and are impressed by what pleases and displeases YOU. We have a word for that in my home country - "guzica." You thrive on dividing people. You attack someone, then ...

Re: Dream upon the Mourning light

Michael, I don't know what your definition of a troll is but I doubt I fit it. I use my own name, as I assume do you - that doesn't make me a troll. I know nothing about you beyond the opinions you express here, nor do you know anything of me, beyond mine. " if you applaud writers who can't be bothe...

Re: Dream upon the Mourning light

Mickey one are you also Sideways or do such great minds simply think alike? Seriously, it's wonderful that you put such energy into keeping the poetry forum going, we owe you a debt. "I normally have to coax the goodies out by devoting my time and energy to setting up poetry comps." And you accuse a...

Re: passing on a challenge left in my inbox

Cate, we joined the Mile-High Club when "I took you up in my aeroplane, which I flew without any licence", we joined the Mile-Below Club " when I took you down in my submarine which I flew without any wings", but I am never going to invite you to my car until you stop calling me Hump. Down on your k...

The Name of the Game

Taking Manna's advice, I decided to go back, for inspiration, to a time before the period in which the other pieces are set. I hope I've found a happier voice - it's certainly a different one, younger and adolescent. Summer night city. I am a girl, I have a dream. Kisses of fire, Lovelight. That’s m...

Re: To see you

Manna, if I've written the same poem, I've written it eight times, not fourteen. You could say the subject is consuming - he left his mark and I hoped the pieces I've written would be elucidatory. I'm sorry if they annoy you. Here's one - inspired with tongue in cheek by your post! :) (See sometimes...

To see you

To see you
was to see the most handsome man on our street
and so well dressed
and such a smile.
You were the
warmth coming back off the summer footpath,
you were my happiness,
you were my love.
And over there
is the field where we made surreptitious love
and behind it
the deep black river.

Re: Patrick Kavanagh 21/10/1904-30/11/1968

I like this very much.
What a wonderful understatement of love.
And what a marvellous opening line.
Thank you.
