CLOCKS ON STRIKE -- by Member: Edwin Jepson, UK -- added: 9/13/2011 10:04:21 AM

Frank Davis said:



Well, of course, Eddie, clocks are always striking, chiming and buzzing. Our modern society is certainly time dominated--often, to the minute or, even, the second. A perceptive poem that took me about a minute to read; time, by the way, very well spent!

BURIAL DAY -- by Member: Marcia Schechinger, USA -- added: 4/4/2007 11:03:26 PM

Frank Davis said:



The death of a loved one is an incredibly heavy burden to bear. Great pain inevitably accompanies grievous loss. Somehow, we eventually recuperate enough to move on; but not without forever nursing a huge hole in our being once occupied by the dearly departed. A profoundly perceptive and poetically powerful piece, Marcia, that says all this--and more!

A far better poetess--and woman--than I think even you know, Nishu. I can honestly say, of all the characters you so colorfully describe, you're the one I'd most like to meet. Although, admittedly, that "doe-eyed playboy bunny" did spark a bit of interest.
