Christmas Haircut

Christmas Haircut Time for your Christmas haircut sir? A lowering of ears get scalped without a cowboy hat or Tonto’s distant jeers. A cut like Frank Sinatra then your word is our command we’re not like other barber poles we’ll style you or be darned. You settle down, I’ll get the strop make sure yo...

Re: Small Hope

The core of the poem I like, but, I can make no sense of: still fresh stars break silence from their moorings to light our steps. Particularly as it goes on to say: Heads lift briefly, but no sound . Why not just have the stars just break from their moorings, no sound involved, then the later no so...

Re: Small Hope

"sand-ices with froth" I don't quite see, don't get the ice part.I think the stars would best just break free from their moorings, rather than silence. From "Then Biblical fanfares " is lost on me, I'm afraid. You seem to spend a lot of time at the seaside. I've said it before, and I'll say it agai...

Should it be "tide's" in the wash/ carpet rolls? I think so...

Re: Small Hope

Some great images, but I feel you need to put the first line into present tense for consistency... Sorry, I don't agree. It's perfectly legitimate, in my view, to establish that an event was in the past, then go on to describe it as if you are re-living it (present tense). Anyhow, this struck me as...

Small Hope

We walked Small Hope step by paddled step skirmishing with seaweed ribbons. A necktie of laced shoes lovingly kiss at my nape. Feet scuff sea as it sand-ices with froth. We say nothing, still fresh stars break silence from their moorings to light our steps. Heads lift briefly, but no sound. I steal ...

I hang motives on coat pegs
that surround an empty room,
dubious raincoats that curve their sleeves

Re: Returning To

Hi peter, yes she's a great poet, but even she lets the meter slip in the last verse there, twice. But if the tale is strong enough, hopefully the rhyme becomes translucent.

Re: Heeling

a beautiful winding tale suzanna,,,and my top line, with ethereal essences was;
when blackbirds hold their breath
and the wind's soft white whispers
won't even rustle a leaf.

real nice

Re: Returning To

Hi again ray, think it actually looks longer in stanzas too.

Return to me, my back yard cage of green I fill the pool and drag a wicker chair sit shoeless with my robin’s chirping preen while concentration scribbles what is there. Around the world and back, within my head a broom full-swept those corners clear of dark then down the stairs where judgment makes...
