Larry,

I find this a very rhythmic poem. It's a challenge enough to begin the next line alphabetically sequencially, but to keep them to quartets, FAB!! dance.gif MusicBand.gif sings.gif

I really enjoyed this! claps.gif

Hi Liz, Larry et al, wave.gif

I wish you all a very happy holiday season ahead and warm wishes always.

It's been a struggle for me this year. I do read posts and really must reply! Time to get more active.

Words
provoke
emotions
that can bring one
places seldom seen
and can be heart-warming
or detrimentally down
to places we wish not to go
It is all about perspective, right?

Why hello wave.gif Syl!

I am still very sorry to hear all you've been through!! I think our trauma happened around the same time? My accident occurred on Feb. 7th. I'm very glad to hear you are up and moving around as we chatted a little bit on FB about. And I'm moving maybe a little complicated however you got to do what's best for you in the long run. Glad to hear you've made some new friends! hsdance.gif

I check in and read often but using my phone has been difficult as a means to reply. I do intend to get in here using my laptop, now that I'm sort of finally back to normal. Started PT this week to get my foot flexible enough to walk soon. Six months of immobility makes it complicated. Can't post from work, so I'll need to plan time at home.

Hugs and best wishes always! GroupHug.gif

Very, very lovely Larry! lovie.gif

Reading this "pretty" poem has me yearning for Spring even more! I gave two Azalea plants, next to my garage. They've been there at least a decade and bloom for a few months -- a pretty deep pinkish tone.

Enjoyed the read, rhythms, colors!

I absolutely love this response, Maureen. I felt a personal connection and that heightened my senses. I love the rhythmic quality of heptameter, even when split.

Take off the mask!

Oh boy! I LOVE this - the image is wonderful (it was my high school mascot)! lovie.gif

I wouldn't change a thing! Perhaps I should try this challenge? I'm so rusty, and dealing with my newly broken leg is taking up most of my thought process at present.

But I did want to comment that I was here - and enjoyed and again - no nits! hsdance.gif

OOOh Larry! claps.gif

I love this! I get very sad when I think of how our young men and women enlist (my man did so many years ago) right out of high school - and then I feel their deeds to protect us (and others in the call of duty) are not acknowledged as they should be! They risk their lives and how do we repay them? Well, I do not want to get into my own thoughts, but let's just say this poem is spot on to reflect my own feelings.

My only nit is in the opening line - the meter (at least how I pronounce) "A man, empty inside" doesn't seem to flow quite as smoothly as the rest.

Enjoyed the read very much! Read.gif

Hi Larry,

Interesting response! I get a sense of a doom boss, lol.
I'm working on getting back into some routine, the new job at Dell is still confusing and fun as I learn new things.
Daniel, sorry that you are having issues. Best to message me or email Peter (Imhotep) at pclark@pclark.com. we would need to know what browser and what buttons or other actions you were doing, and what the error was. As this forum software is out of date, the more details, the better.

Cheers,
Lori

What an interesting response!

I take it this is a young 'rebel' with a cause as MC?

Nice use of the ten words!
