    Well Phil, I could watch this video, but how about some pics of your artwork right here in this topic? Or in the Gallery? Let me know if you need a Gallery album. 😀

    Daily Poem Challenge

    Your assignment: Think about some emotion you experienced recently. Write about that emotion from the perspective of some inanimate object. AnticipationThe well-worn teapot,spiffed up for the occasion,began to hum then shimmy with gleeas the time drew near.The vibration came from deep inside,it bubbled upuntil she thought she might explode, rocking out at full boil,whistling her top off.Her guest had arrived. ~~Judi Van Gorder

    Daily Poem Challenge

    Write a Tanka Change On the Horizon She's labeled "lazy", her habits mimic the sloth, gorging on goodwill, sapping the snap from others. Today new conventions dawn. ~~Judi Van Gorder

    Daily Poem Challenge

    Write a Trilonette Dancing with Roses I have red rosebuds on the brain. I sit and write while roses dance around in my imagination. Looking through the window pane of joy, they sway as in a trance, drawing me to meditation There's many flowers I could feign in colors, that engage, enhance allure and elevate their station. But everybody knows the reign- ing bloom for bliss and true romance, the scarlet rose, is love's creation. A symbol for all hope and passion, the red-red rose performs in fashion. ~~Judi Van Gorder

    27 Years After the Breakup

    That is because you need cold and wet Yorkshire weather...alternatively read a Bronte novel 😀

    The Motions

    Hi Juris, This is a compelling piece and it has pulled me back to read over and over. The repetition of words was very effective in cementing the movement of the poem in my mind. i really enjoyed reading this. ~~Judi

    A Haunting

    A Haunting

    Thank Tony, I know it was just a movie but it dramatized a real life horror that has played out in so many parts of the world. The power of art that heightens our awareness not just of the beauty that surrounds us but also injustice and evil. ~~Judi.

    I am always glad when my Estonian role model likes something. :) Thanks, as always, for reading.

    27 Years After the Breakup

    NO need to worry about me, but my inspiration was this: https://genius.com/Langston-hughes-suicides-note-annotated The title says more than the poem. (I think.) Thanks.

    An Abundance of Courgette

    Thanks Tony. I have restored the original ending. cheers Phil

    A Haunting

    So, my response has little to do with this well constructed poem, rather the 'Coincidence' it caused -- I was working on a piece about writing someone else, that old trope, and stopped to write a poem --- Uncompleted, whose title 'A Haunting' was reflected back at me at 3am when I couldn't sleep... Ahh yes the loops and loops we participate in;-) TY Tinker for making me take notice! Enjoyed the piece, exactly what I was going for, except more personal, more ex-wifey;-)

    My Buddha Drinks Whiskey

    TY all got chewed out (sort of) by my Zen Teacher when I shared but as a work of pure non-dharmic fiction I stand by it and it still makes me smile. Thanks all for your kind and insightful words. J

    Cheaper? Maybe, but just as sweet. Nice 'Therapy.' Enjoyed!

    The Motions

    When I read other Poets Sometimes - I feel - I am Being pelted by stones My Heart is suspended somewhere in everywhere emptycaverns soon to be gone gone gone othertimes more a nod and wink behind the scenes traitors to surface - we pretend to have secrets in depth - a set and setting of Objects with their suspect susceptibility to hallucination and other distortions a divine construct of paint and faux faux meant to be seen at a comfortable distance or be subject to ever-ever-ever moving swarm ‘All those vibes’ resonate resound repeat renew ‘from which we create physiks cosmos and You’ or so we tell each other part of the greeting a handshake which says ‘no matter how complicated or complicit our weaving we just don’t know’ There! right here! It gets into your bones this hollow The Motions an echo of the Un the Not the Silence before and after - ‘ See? I told you.’

    For My Granddaughter, Trinity

    I think you are right Tony. Will fix it. Glad you like it. ~~Judi

    For My Granddaughter, Trinity

    I love dedicated works, Judi. This is a lovely one with impeccable meter. I would change one small thing; I would use a semicolon or a full stop at the end of L5 after "within." Tony

    A Haunting

    Once you've seen it, you can't unsee it, Judi. I think that it "permeates this page" makes it real. Tony
