Hey, L R,

I always read your 'Poet's Eye' essays and usually look forward to them. This one was no exception. Although the three stooges are quite funny, each in their own sort of way, I worry about them...or rather, not them, but their effect on us. They are like three chemicals that when kept separate remai...

Responses!!! lol. Now I see what it takes to get a response. Hey, LR, missed you too, brother. Just came back from California - L.A. and 'HUMBOLDT COUNTY' to visit my son along with my daughter.

Just a suggestion.

If you look at the ratio of reads to replies in Creative Writing it is easy to see why this forum does not seem to grow much. People post because they want others to comment on their work. Why else would they post. It doesn't matter if the comment is constructive in nature or simply a statement of n...

I got a few of the lines but the rest were lost on me. Clarify? Distill? Or not.

Thanks, Arcadia. This is also an old one from a good while back. My muse is on strike lately so I post an old one or two here and there. Thank you for reading.

And where does it ultimately lead? There are so many paths, u-turns, crossroads and dead ends.

Brahms, Merlot and I

Hues of burgundy emanate from half filled glass to soften life's black and white. Merlot and Brahms, flowing in harmony, plot alternate course through eve's looming tedium. Daylight drains in unison with dwindling glass, to release all impounded anxiety. Unplugged phone lines, defanged and venomless...

Us and Them (first poem I ever wrote, 33 years ago)

Time after time, always, trying to rhyme my life with theirs, who seem without cares; who don't dare to question what life's really about, never stopping to ask or express any doubt. In amidst the crowd, so false and so loud, but don't speak of truth, "Come down off your cloud!" A stick in the mud, ...
