The prison -- by Member: Dilliram chhetri, Bhutan -- added: 7/24/2017 6:41:36 AM

Pauline Miller said:



A lovely poem Dilliram, Imagine being as free as bird and the wings to fly, high above the land, looking down on earth's beauty. Or settle on a mountain pine and smell its scent. Can you imagine the explosion of feelings felt through the heart of a bird and the joy of it all? No, don't cage me in a prison. Pauline.

And such a place to start off with Richard.A sea breeze, a blue sky, warm lingering days, a game of boules and maybe a fish supper and a glass of wine or two. Magic.I long to visit. Maybe some day, yes? A beautiful, relaxing sonnet that took me where I'd love to be right now. Pauline.

Mittens -- by Member: Westly Shaw, USA -- added: 7/21/2017 9:14:22 PM

Christine Shaw said:



You reminded me of my childhood Westly, when my mittens were threaded through my coat on elastic, so I didn't lose them. It worked and my Nan always knitted my mittens in lovely bright colours. You took me back in time and I thank you for that. Fond regards Chris

Beachfront Property? -- by Member: Betty Janko, USA -- added: 7/23/2017 2:17:34 PM

Christine Shaw said:



Dear Betty, I think we are all having to cope with climate change. Heat I can cope with, humidity I can not, and we certainly seem to get our fair share of that over here. Fair knocks the stuffing out of you. We need air conditioning over here in our homes! Something we haven't got used to yet. Hope you can get some relief soon. All good wishes dear poet, hoping you are keeping well. Fondest wishes Chris

Walking along the Seashore at Night -- by Member: Dwayne Rankin, USA -- added: 7/23/2017 4:40:24 PM

Christine Shaw said:



You took me there with this beautiful poem of the ocean by moonlight. You certainly brought me some peaceful thoughts Dwayne. A walk on the beach is a wonderful place to go when you are troubled. Somehow, the vastness of the ocean always brings a little perspective to me. Great work. All fond wishes Chris

It is difficult to let go of baggage Myrna, as you rightly say. But in truth, it is the only way to start the healing process and to find some peace. Nicely expressed poem that many will relate to as it has a universal appeal. Fond regards Chris
