You're fine, Sylvia. I think Larry had copied a word to prepare a response offline and just didn't notice we'd gone off without him for a few posts. LOL He had been busy doing things with his wife at home, I believe.

Hi Larry, great to post here again. I miss MM so much, it's the best.
As I'm no expert on sonnets, I just love yours. Up to date, Greta Thurnberg would use it, somehow or other.

Enjoyed, wish I'd seen it before.

Hi Daniel,
Sounds as if you discovered quite a lot about your childhood that nobody ever talked about. So many issues were taboo. I hope those beatings didn't really happen, maybe you've taken poetic license. But it all sounds real.

Took me a while to absorb the whole poem. Also surprised that you posted in FV. Don't you usually write sonnets or other forms?
Enjoyed, if that's the right word.

Great to find you here as well, Bev. Great that you've taken up painting. Some of the challenges here go with a painting to inspire you. Have you seen them?

I hope you've no health troubles? I've had a pretty rough year, first a kidney stone that got stuck half way down its way out. The pain was horrid and fortunately daughter Diana was here, so she took me to E.R. I had an endoscope down below and the doc found two tiny stones blocking the passageway. My kidney was full of nasty fluids and I could have lost it... I'm going for my umpteenth check up in a couple of hours.

Meanwhile, my Fibromyalgia is almost intolerable, despite medication. I'll be seeing a Pain Specialist, in the hopes of getting a prescription for medical marihuana, which is finally legal in Argentina. It's always been easily available, but I'd rather get a proper prescription and buy it from a lisenced provider. Tried the stuff before, with no luck.

Have you been getting around at all? Do you ever see Wally and his wife? You must have grandchildren now? Maybe you can share pictures on FB, everybody seems to be there, despite the scandals. I suspect there's some kind of witch hunt going on, Mark Z. supplied our profiles for a study in Cambridge University, to a supposedly honest professor in Psychology. But they ended up elsewhere...

All the same, I didn't sign any of those petitions against him. He should be fined, perhaps, as Google was in the E.U. These guys have always had all our info, I just search for something to buy Online, and the advs follow me for ages! Even to poetry websites...LOL..

Bye for now, another greeting to Daniel and best of luck to you, Bev. I'll return here if Lori ever retakes her admin work. Everything went downhill when she left, we miss her as she was so active, long ago.

Love to all, Sylvia

Oh my goodness, Daniel, I just happened to drop by and saw this news. You've certainly been thru' a rough time, so sorry.
I see that all this happened during Christmas and beyond. Your report sounds good, so I hope now in May you're totally recovered. And that you managed to lose some weight! That's important.
I seldom come to MM anymore. It makes me downright sad, almost depressed, as there are so few of you around any more. I did see that Larry posted a rondeau in Herme's. And that you all continue with the word challenges.

I've moved on to some other websites, but frankly I haven't found any poets like I've found here at MM.
They send in poems for IBPC every month. MM used to do that. I've only won some H.M.'s, whereas Eira got a 1st. prize for a lovely poem, fairly recently.

I wish you and Eileen all the best! Maybe you can take a holiday?

Take care, keep well, best,

Hi Anthony,
I hadn't seen this poem before. Been away for some time.
Enjoyed it very much. I think poets are allowed to invent neologisms such as rare-field or rarefield. Or turn nouns into verbs, etc.

I see you've had good suggestions, so I have no nits at all. Except perhaps Daniel's questions as to "what rare-field means". But I read your explanation about the 4 a.m. events, so I better get to bed, as it's now 4.30 a.m. LOL.

Best wishes and congrats on your poem.

Hi Ali,
I've come over for a visit after a long time.
And I've been fortunate in finding this lovely painting, as well as what appears to be a true love poem.
Beautifully achieved, both of them.
The ending sounds sad, I don't know whether "asleep" may mean that this beautiful lady has passed away... After all, she would awaken and could be painted then.

Never mind, I've probably opened my mouth and put my foot in it. Please forgive.

So glad you shared these two sentimental works of art with us.

Best wishes,

Hey James,
I dropped into MM after many months and I just listened to your signing of your own lyrics!
What a treat...
I hadn't heard this one anywhere else, but perhaps I missed it, as I'm trying to do too much stuff and get fatigued.
So lucky me, best,
