Endymion, I think that poem is fantastic. I guess I identify with it in many ways. Nothing else to say, my friend. You need to write more.

Thanks Letty

Feels as if I've been holding my breath for days.

It was good to be able to let it out. (The poem- thing I mean, not my breath).

I wrote it while I was on a long train journey and kind of hid it. So your post means a lot.

Peace,
E

Endymion, I do want you to know this. I don't patronize, my friend. If something is good, I say so. If not, I try to point out where it might be improved.

I especially felt this stanza:


Above the rocks he settles
To decide upon his plight
The search for his salvation - or a slow dive into white

WOW!

Please feel free to join us on WA2K radio, as we love original stuff there.

Of course I don't mind - I didn't write it for myself.
By the way, what is WA2K?

Well, I couldn't sleep so here I am. WA2K is a virtual radio station that I created in order to bring people from all over the world into the mix because I didn't want this site to be purely American.

colorbook is an excellent writer and poet as are many on the site. It's run like a real radio station with a little bit of everything that most stations have. We would love you to join us, endymion.

I'd be honoured, Letty. Many thanks.

Unfortunately, my knowledge of poetry is limited - but I'd like to contribute what I can and look forward to reading other people's poems.

Just a few days ago no one on earth but me had read this poem - and now it has been read by many. Thanks for that, too. I don't exaggerate when I admit that it took me a while to post it. In the end I had to laugh at myself. I understood why I was hesitating - I was afraid people would declare my writing crap - and it actually means a great deal to me, now that I've discovered it (however limited it might be).

At the same time I wanted to share it with someone. Poetry is something new to me. It came to me at a time when I wasn't feeling too good about myself. It suprised me. Even scared me a little. This poem was strange - how I got to write it I mean. Maybe I'll write about that sometime.

Rolling Eyes Blimey - I d'narf go on sometimes.

Peace,
E

Good afternoon, Endymion. I would say that you know more about poetry than you realize. Often it is when we are feeling in a "blue funk" that the inspiration comes to us, and just as painting or any artistic endeavor, there must be an inspiration.

Yes inspiration and also, perhapes, a strong motive.

Are you all right, Brit? I enjoyed your responses on Yitwail's philosophy thread.

You see, my friend. I lost all my inspiration when a person on this site referred to as cavfancier died. It happens to us--all of us.

Feel bad about my post on Gus' 'Hospital' thread. It's on the waggery forum, if you haven't already seen it. Sad

Made a joke about him being gone to market to sell his soap bombs.
Being thick, I took his whole story to be fiction, didn't realize about Cav.

I'm sorry for the forum's loss. You okay?

Hey, Brit. We're both okay. There's no way you could have known about Cavfancier, but I am looking forward to more of your writing, my friend.

I liked this poem ENDY.
It's clean. It conjures up images well.
It reminds me of some of the old english writers.
God job.
Keep writing!
