Forgive -- by Member: Charles Fisher, UK -- added: 8/19/2019 12:48:56 PM

Marcia Schechinger said:



Charles a heartfelt poem of forgiveness and pain released, "He went in the kitchen Sat in his mother's chair And; stared at the yesterdays". "Broken words spoken That can never be returned", one must remember this always and think wisely of our mortality and memories. Bless you and thank you for this poem that I might start the day fresh so as my memories are kind - this day forward.

Shaunda such a lovely poem and beautiful dream, "Cause when I wake up...You're so gone...Until then love soul...Bounce: and love rain...". I love reading your work and this one set in a dream with hope and waiting for that day when this beautiful love will come. As always, a true pleasure to read your work.

All credit to you and your offering Betty. Telling it like it is and in an unusual format is not for the poet who drowns in self pity. A biography which allows you to expose the trials and tribulations, a ‘stroke’ victim undergoes. All the more poignant for me, as we have recently lost a good friend to said affliction! Talking with him one day recently, and the very next? No more! Monsieur Poirot would be proud to see you using his “Little grey cells” citation/reference, as a caption in such a manner. Indeed, as all of those who have grown fond of you over the short period of time we have come to know you - do! Thanks for your offering. First Class that gives readers, much food for thought! Well worth the time I take away from my ‘home construction/ project - slowly beginning to come together as envisaged. Fondest regards, and that goes for Alice as well. Pauline and Denis.

101st Musketeers Challenge- A Hairy Tale -- by Member: Betty Janko, USA -- added: 8/19/2019 12:38:13 AM

Denis Barter said:



Hi Bertty and very nicely done. Not sure I would make a "pet" out of spider - we have far too many in our various workshops and sheds, and they get me entangled in their overnight constructions, I was more of a lad who enjoyed making friends with toads, frogs and slow-worms as pets. However, my best pal, outside of my dog Bruce, was a Ferret. He used to ride inside my shirt - much to my mother's d9sgust! Never allowed to take him in the house though! L0l. Thanks for your super effort and especially as it did trigger memories of my own. Hope you're now in the 'frame" for more? Fairy Tales - with wand and sparklers that is, can make a good subjec6. How goes your daily battle for recovery? Trust you are still making progress?Fondest regards. Pauline and Denis.

101st Challenge - Limericks -- by Member: Kenneth Clark, UK -- added: 8/17/2019 1:18:31 PM

William Willis said:



Madcap,but just what Denis prescribed Kenneth. Limericks are maybe not some writers cups of tea and they would rather go climb a tree. But as they climb, their feet they don't rhyme and end up with a skint knee. I am fair looking forward to trying to climb that tree. You have done brilliantly here. Crazy mixed up lyrics get the senses going and are fun as you have shown here. My fave from your list is Angus McKie. Brilliant! Wm. /|\

This is excellent Rita. Bruno has beaten the odds and what a heartwarming Limerick. A lovely tan coat and wee soul has a handicap, limp. He is hyperactive and must be to do the Spanish Fandango. Lots of snappy teeth to keep would be intruders away too Story now grows so does Bruno Limping dog can grab rears so, Between his Fandango And hoots of Soprano Those puppy teeth bite.Ouch! A fulfilling and a poem to be proud of. Wm../|\

Denis Barter said:



Yep! I knew someone would do me proud by writing some entertaining and not so 'rude' limericks. Thanks a bunch Ken, you've made another stellar effort and strengthened my belief that poetry - in any shape or form, is not "all" about love, passion nature, serious topics nor our senses. A good Limerick always brings a smile - even to a vicar's face - and this effort of yours helps to brighten my day. Even as it will all who read same. With a tremendous thunderstorm doing its best to drown us right now - rain much needed. - This posting of yours couldn't have come at a better time! Great stuff and don't stop now! You're on a roll and goodness only knows what5 your effort might spark? Fondest regards and hope all goes well with you? Pauline and Denis. A good 'chuckle' is as good as a tot of Nelson's Blood! Ciao Rhymer.
