Re: Moment

Only the photo preserves her epiphany of belief. Hi Phil, I think I know what kind of moment this expresses, how all elements come together in nature to point to something beyond--the moment of some kind of enlightment. I really like the poem except for the epiphany of belief. I think maybe due to ...

Re: Working Title

Thank you both, Phil and Dan. I have been visiting the NaPo group effort off and on since 4/30 and have been glad to see some of you continue to check in, add on, finish up or whatever brings you here. I even sign in thinking I want to make some grand final statement but then I get overwhelmed and s...

Re: Working Title

The soul never forgets... at least that's my wishful take. I wrote my thesis on death and made a case for our ability to make true our own reality.  Thank you AJ Loved the memories in 27 though entirely incapable of winking along as I don't get the references. Needs some research.  Let me help you ...

Re: Celebrating the daze

Sorry Linda, I steal from you. A bussard sails the canyon, at one with itself and time, its wings generous to the wind, given to the moment that glides on and on beyond any notion of an end.   If my feeble description inspired this then I am glad .  "wings generous to the wind"  perfect. You are am...

Re: 30 drafts for NaPoMo

Despite the fact that it’s millennia of dead people we’re talking about I am fascinated by the vision of the migrations of entire peoples across land bridges that no longer exist, boarding ships or rafts or dugout canoes whose destinations are only a rumor, crossing huge continents on foot. Amazing....

Re: The Magic of Thirty

dedication

when breath
of life wavers
friendship is forged in stone
to safeguard mankind’s destiny
from doom

I sense we are coming to the coda Mr. Singer. And the heart of the matter. I continue to be intrigued.

Re: Ampersand Again _ April 2021

First let me echo what Dave has said. In art school a saying was often invoked "culture ultimately wins the war". I'm not so certain that's as true as I once believed it to be but time will tell. Here we are adding to what I hope will become a critical mass of truth and beauty that will once again t...

Re: Gyppo's Corner

Gyppo I have skimmed your answer to how you write and will read more in depth later, thank you. You have always been generous with your comments and above all your ability to relate some aspect or story of your life to the stories (confessions) of others. Its always good to know something I have wri...

Re: Von's Poems

Oh Von, I read this as an intergenerational line of care, mother to daughter, daughter to mother repeat and repeat and so it goes. Each generation says goodbye to the last and gives birth to the next. A simple truth we all know but you've captured the emotional depth to the realities of these lives ...

Re: Cwtch

I have totally fallen behind as well Phil. But I know I can keep interacting with you, a regular contributor to TTB, in the coming days. I think we need to discuss how to continue delving into the many missed poems written here in the NaPo challenge.  I put the pad and pencil in the bottom draw, mak...
