Re: The Earth and its Rescilence

It’s interesting to read a poem of another culture, another belief system. But I also wanted more, an emotional connection with the narrator. A sense of comfort from faith or tradition, a sense of wonder...the awe of time passed and passing...but I am left with a history lesson. This poem might be b...

Cancer in my One Good Kidney

Cancer in my One Good Kidney My kidney cancer is like a boat riding the surface of a beanbag-shaped lake, a long tendril from it reaching into shadowy MRI depths. My doctor explains the details but I could be sitting at the bottom of a swimming pool, voices as insubstantial as daydreams. The doctor'...

Re: POTENTIAL DELETION OF WRITER'S BLOCK POETRY FORUMS

I don't know why people have withdrawn. The ones who have withdrawn from WB are not participating in another forum they used to frequent either. At Waters only 6 or 7 poets are active. This has been true for weeks. I can't recall WB ever having as many as a dozen active poets at one time. When Berni...

A Friend's Wedding Reception

v2: A Friend's Wedding Reception I remember looking up at a chandelier with all its glass and lights winking at the bride and groom as they danced in an open clearing on the floor, the guests ooh-ing and ahhh-ing on the perimeter like children seeing a meadow of fireflies ascending from the grass.

Biography of a Mummy

Biography of a Mummy X-rays reveal poles thrust up his spine, the poles dating from the Dark Ages. His lower jaw is missing, stolen and ground, perhaps, to a fine powder and sold to Chinese traders.
