Re: Limmericks?

There once was a poet named Boat
Who questioned a thing that (s)he wrote
(S)He posted it here
Ant made it quite clear
A limerick's a fine way to emote....

OK, well... I was passing through.

Re: Poets' Graves meet-up 2016

Thanks for the offer, Stuart, lol. Very hospitable of you. Looks like I am coming I'm thinking I should write a poem or two before I book my ticket, just to make sure I still can. Life has certainly gotten in the way this year. My great grandfather, Charles Kemp, was from Manchester. Maybe I'll find...

Thank you, Tristian.
I appreciate your thoughts. You brought up parts i had concerns about.

I have slightly edited with them in mind and will continue to ponder a further tightening.

On Locating China

On Locating China Minneapolis is on the Mississippi, we cross it on the Lake Street bridge. From the backseat, I note the treelined drive, the turn left, a statue, the governor's mansion. My boundaries were expanding into St. Paul. I drew a map in my mind. I already knew Minnesota was in the middle ...

Ponti di Rialto

Ponti di Rialto I have imagined standing in this place since the day we parted, the scarf you bought rests like your ghost around my shoulders. A gondola passes under me, a woman lightly laughs, snuggles into her lover's shoulder. Singular blue and white moorings seem to stand more erect, ready for ...

Re: Finding Maria (Revision 2)

It is always interesting to hear what people think concerning prose poetry.
The definitions are, of course, not as important as the piece itself but i find that discussing these things can help clarify a poet's own thinking.

And with that said.... Where is Maria?

Re: Outside

Thank mac and ray. I like the image of the gravel vs the grass under the trees in those first lines. And the big rubber boots. It is so typical here. Glad you liked the fb lines,ray. Yep. It knew it could go either way , mac. It dates the poem. But I have removed the flu. Yes, thanks. Warmly, Suzanne

Outside Gravel rolls under big rubber boots that cross the playground into the grassy shade of the oaks. Kids explode in a chorus of "not-it" there's always one last to sing out.

Re: Conception

Nice!

I agree with these crits.
Just a little polishing needed here.

I understood the opera idea. The drama from looking back at all the lives that created our histories.
Intermingling and rising seem just to much intense action, i think.

Attach that last line.

Well done, Stever

Hi JJ, I envy the ease in which you seem to think in meter. It inspires me to try again. I do not like the title, it doesnt match the poem, though clever. f it observes forgotten waste, regardless of your sense of taste, the stomping fly will gladly spew, to liquefy its toxic stew.
