Re: complete the poem.....(Haiku)

Probably your mind was entangled in Pope's "Essay on Criticism" For fools rush in where angels fear to tread Distrustful sense with modest caution speaks, It still looks home, and short excursions makes; But rattling nonsense in full volleys breaks, And, never shocked, and never turned aside.

Angels fear to tread
out of pearly Bill Gates then
iCloud windows crash
iCloud windows crash
when pearly bill's gates are closed
and angels dare fear.

Just an aside: My angels feared to rush...

Re: complete the poem.....(Haiku)

Recline on the bench
decline park keeper’s offer
and keep off the grass

and keep off the grass.
the fool in spring dares tread where
angels fear to rush.

Yes, there were times when the bees were busy and the biz was buzzy around here.

Re: R.I.P. Andrew McGeever

All this happened while I was away, so I was pretty much stunned when Margaret told me somewhere else about Andrew's passing. There was a time when Andrew and I phoned almost daily, talking about poetry and music. Somehow life went on, and we just exchanged a couple of emails now and then. And now i...

Re: Montreal tribute: media coverage, photos & YouTube links

Maybe it's legal, maybe it's not. But thank you for it.

Unfortunately you already hit the daily DL limits on your dropbox, Linda. :(

You in the daylight
Dreamed of summer nights long gone.
Winter surprised you.

Re: I don't cry

I can't find enough peace for tears...

But there's pain.

Sth. drove me back here to share the pain,

Dunno if I can find the time *and patience* to stay around.

Lost

I wrote something, and it got lost.

A word starting with an 'F'.

Re: Leonard Has Passed Away

Say a prayer for the cowboy
His mare's run away
And he'll walk til he finds her
His darling, his stray
but the river's in flood
and the roads are awash
and the bridges break up
in the panic of loss.
Bye, Leonard!

Re: To A Photographer

More than five years after her death I can feel free to reveal that the photographer of this poem was our late great friend Sue Stark, the beautiful Spirit of the chat room.

Some still feel the loss.
