The River's Question

Sometimes people just need someone to listen to them. Sometimes the river needs talking down...

Coffee and Cake at the Writers Club

A tongue-in-cheek affair - based loosely on a writing circle I was in years ago. Mind you, one wonders if things ever change that much. I know I haven't and I'm as guilty probably as the next writer .

I should really stay away from philosophy. It only confuses me...

Wrecking the Room

Just another poem written to pass the time...

I do like this...though I guessed early on where it was going to lead me, it didn't detract from the poem. The technical language of the imagery is nicely at odds with the actual subject. This creates a tension that brings the poem alive.

Cherries must be on ration if this wasn't given any.

Every picture perfectly painted like a modern day Pathe newsreel.

And not first person to boot.
