what a powerful little poem! Did you write it? Clever. Thank you.
i agree getzapped, powerful and at the same time so tender...
I read ... somewhere in your trail of comments on the blogs of others we both read ... that you're having a bit of difficulty finding your muse and goodly bits of poetry coming from your pen.But here I come and read no evidence of said difficulty. None. Absolutely none."... that it is the moonwhich is lonesome ..."Fine work there luv
like a parenthesis without its mate.wow. this is very beautiful. you write beautifully.
Thine poems require more fatuousness, more frivolity, else - I add parenthetically - how am I to follow them?
beautiful image in the poem, and the pic goes nicely with the poembtw, last night I watched Water--I'll have a review up in a few days
I meant to say Earth, I watched and reviewed Water a month or so ago
oh, this is beautiful! it was fun to read it out loud. :)
This is so beautiful! I will never look at the moon the same way--what an amazing image!
love the way you've done thisespecially that apostrophe imagecheers
I love it!! Good write!!
Gautami. my friend read this to me over the phone yesterday while I was working and when she mentioned your name as the author, I felt an exclamation mark. Of course, Gautami is a wonderful poet and I hastened to add a mathematician too! This is terrific.
getzapped: Thanks. What do you think?kindness(disarms the difficult): Thanks.lady wordsmith: I was having a problem writing poetey. I still have it. I kind of forced myself yesterday to just sit and write. At times one has to do it. Thanks. My relationship with the moon is "love and hate" kind.
kj: Thanks. Sometimes words just flow, at others I have to make them flow.percival: I will remember that for the next quaint verse I write, in parenthesis!!sage: Thanks.I look forward to your review of EARTH.
andrew: I hadn't read it out loud. Thanks for telling me.firebird: It does look like alone, doesn't it?:Dfloots: Only you could point the apostrophe image. I am glad you did.
pat: thanks. You write so well.ces: Gee, thanks. I don't know what else to say here....
the moon somehow holds me in awe.and you have written an awesome piece about it. :)
oh, gautami, i simply love this one. perhaps because i'm partial to the moon... :)
Lovely imagery. I hope you really are not all that forlorn yourself though!
Now I have to give it to you, the last two lines nailed it.
loved the way you put it Gautami
magic eye:Thanks!dsnake1:moon affects us in numerous ways.polona:Amen!tlc:Arn't we all at one time or the other?javitz: *smile*amalendu: thanks!
Yes, what about the moon, without its mate!?
Being a Cancerian moon maiden, I really loved this poem, but even if I wasn't, I would still love it for your clever use of words, Gautami.
