Re: Thales and Higgs Boson

Thanks all, Wow. I was inspired when I made a connection in my head; being rusty on the poetry front it came out too jumbled on the page. I'll rework it when work settles down and see if I can't fix some things. I just got too caught up in certain words. Oh and: Sorry to be rather negative No need f...

Re: The amorous musician

I agree with the others. Wouldn't change a thing.

What does "glissando" mean?

"worldly-wisest" is a great invention (is it yours?)

Thales and Higgs Boson

Thales and Higgs Boson The whole world was once considered water. It was said that God saw his reflection in its depth and molded a mirror in the skies. It was water that first propped up the land and fell on us when the living clouds cried. These days, it is considered far more profound to say the...

sorry to read this, but it is logical.

Not sure if my absence of presence is more to blame for the "staid."

Re: Next

Given the brevity, I'm not sure there is much to criticize. Seems like a playful transition in a collection. I like the rhyme, and the ant/magnifying glass reversal. If there is a deeper meaning, I'm missing it. In a western culture full of ADD and ADHD, though, I think the poem has a special signif...

SS - what do you think of this article? I think Harris makes a lot of sense and got it right. But I'm just a guy, not a criminologist. I lived in a bad part of St. Louis for many years. I know responsible gun owners - avid hunters, or ex-military types who know a thing or two about actually defendin...

Re: Too Choosy (and why I'll be single forever)

Exactly. Not only a commentary on the one choosing, but also on the prospects. We are all cliche's, and this is especially true of first impressions.

Actually I don't get annoyed, I don't know why I wrote that.

I feel like this wants to be iambic pentameter and with a few tweaks, could be without sounding forced. On the other hand, I know that many on here (myself included) sometimes stray from strict adherence. Here's a proposal: An Aynsley vase of plastic daffodils now gathers dust. Alone she writes with...

Re: Two poems on recent events

I like these as well, especially the first one but the second as well. Sometimes it is hard to write good poetry when emotions are running high, but these work well, even if they aren't subtle. I'm with kj, I don't think these need titles.
