Laoha - thank you very much. I see you've dug up a few of my older works, for which I'm really flattered....cheers...
Kari - the thing about this is that he's absolute comfort...so I'm glad that comfort came across. (Mind you, I did use the word twice grumble). Thank you, you always respond to my work whenever I choose to stumble on in here....
Hey another K - I don't know if it's 'upbeat' lol...me and upbeat? Nah...but yes, it's not about loss, that's for sure.
~what a sly reference to the talented poetess!'
Snort, yeah whatever. Lol...
Weight/wait - there's two of them in the poem. I switched them to be cleva heh...and to play on the way they both apply in this particular piece. Less emphasis on human ties? This whole piece is about human ties...and how geography plays a small part in it...or on the other hand - with our technology we are more able to find a connection in a wider space aren't we? So, therefore, geography becomes the key.
(Er, what's a BGR?)
dreamed-comfort. Hadn't thought of it that way, and how does that make you ignorant. I like it.....
I've wound up writing profound things in simple language...somehow over the years lol. I prefer it in what I read; it comes out in what I write I guess. I like to express emotion through image.
You can't convey image clearly in a clutter of meaningless adjectives.
Yuki. 'Yuki Song' is a song by Deep Forest from their recent album Music Detected. It's a haunting, haunting song. The poem isn't as such inspired by it, but rather the song expresses the inspiration of the man. Make any sense? Prolly not lol..
To understand, key lyrics (bit convoluted, but you need to ~hear~ the passion):
'I didn't see it coming but it came upon me and took a hold on me and I, I could not help but believe I have faith in this thing, I have one chance in my life and I must take it, I gotta give it to you and I cannot let it go...I will not let it go...
I can't believe it, oh I can't believe it.'
The singer has a....devastating voice.
Anyway, hugs you....nice to talk as always....thanks for your input.
Sadelite - smile...yes, and I know means the world sometimes. Thank you for your reply, I've always said I'm glad when I write something that causes someone to think (maybe there's hope for me after all)..
Hey Ms Enchantress - smiling. I got a 'wow'. Thank you!
Maureen - thank you..
MLP - I know you know this one....maybe there's a bit of you in there eh? Likely a bit of all of us. Thank you. Hugs dear one..
Ethel - yes indeed. A thing to be thankful for, understanding. Real understanding.
gadfly - firstly, welcome to the forums. Secondly, thank you...I appreciate it.
R - thanks for bringing my muse back. I thought it had gone for good. Quietly speaking nordic.
