Re: You

Mickey-1, thank you for your response. I appreciate it. I take your point but in defence of the piece I didn't put the last line there as a filler. Let me attempt an explanation. After he (it was a he/ funny you should assume a she :( ) was dead and buried (the water and clay), it probably seemed to...

Re: Seashell

"Too bad if you thought it was all just fluffy and sandy and beachy -- it can be that way in part, but only if you've mastered the darn hard rocky business of writing. And how do you do that? You write and refine write and refine write and refine write and refine... I think you get the picture." Ver...

You

Dead and gone,
all the harm you've done
sprinkled with cold water
buried under clay,
all the harm you've done,
blessed and put away
for now. For now.

Re: Seashell

Thank you one and all.
Somethings I agree with/ some I disagree with but I feel happy that the subject has been engaged with and that means a lot.
Thank you

Re: Seashell

Ego is not a problem Mickey-1. My point was that a critique is useless to the writer if she or he cannot read it. So feel free to repost. Another thing that I find odd here, being a recent arrival, is the way almost every thread in this area gets hijacked into banter between half a dozen or so regul...

Re: Seashell

Thank you Manna for explaining so generously. One thing that irks me - having been away for a week on holiday - is that someone can post something here and then remove it but the damage is done. I gather from what you write Manna that the critique was "scathing" - fair enough, taste is subjective - ...

Re: Seashell

Thank you Manna, not a problem that you didn't like it. Each to his/her own taste. I'm confused though - your reply suggests you're Mickey-1, which you may be! I'm not sure of the pecking order here. I posted my comment on foot Mickey-1's (your?) comment when he/you wrote: "I told you I could draw s...

Re: Seashell

I missed your critique Michael but thank you (or not as the case may be).
Might not people have found the poem without it?
Perhaps/perhaps not.

Seashell

It keeps whispering, even when I'm not listening, whispering something to someone else, telling sad secrets, here on the shore between life and eternity. And some of its stories are lies and some are the honest truth and some I'm not even sure I really heard. But it never stops its whispering, here ...

Re: End of the road poem #1

Violet dahling,
You're in danger of morphing into Michael.
It's a linguistic thing, a certain turn of phrase....you'll know yourself.
Re-establish your independent credentials asap. ;-)
Best wishes as always,
Virginia.
