Hallo, Lane & Glenn!Coming back to "civilization" from ten days at a village on the Baltic Sea, I am confounded by this blog!! Who is the 'cellist and why is Glenn to blame????Elgar composed "Enigma Variations" and Lane has done the same verbally here!!Tschüß,Anonomann
Glenn writes a lot of poetry. This picture is a poetry "prompt" he encourages me to join in. I'm trying to show him why I shouldn't.There is no cellist, It's just something that might be going on in the house.
Hallo, Lane!!Thanks for unraveling the enigma!!!!Is Ursula also a poetic-license person???Tschüß,Anonomann
You seem to want me to quitprompting you to write poetry,which will never happen.Poetry resides in you, andyou need to release it, sir.You tell me that this poem"makes no sense.".So over on FFTR, I wrotea response to your feelings:Whatthehell makes sense?The Bush Wars inheritedby Obama? Old age?Attacks of CRS and achesand pains and blank spaces?Calling things Jumbo Shrimp?Filing things under GovernmentIntelligence? Endeavoring tobe engaged by rhetoricalquestions? Jean-Paul Satre?Jackson Pollack's drippings?Mozart's operas? My cat?My wife? Your wife? Whya GPS sends you only thestupid ways first, as if youhave forgotten how to read a map? Why doesMotel 6 rooms cost $65.00?Why we do not fear for ourlives living in the shadowsof several fire mountains?Why do we whistle in cemeteries?Why couldn't I find an SUV thatwas painted red instead ofgovernment mint silver?Why haven't I seen Bigfootyet? Why does no one givea shit I saw that UFO onthe high CA deserts in 1983?Why do I have a lot of hairon my fireplug of a body,and you have less on yourlanky frame? The technologythat emerges daily to helpus forget about the importantissues on this planet, and keepsour children occupied and zonedout during elections? Christ, Icould go on, but it makes nosense to do so.
Naw, I'm just apologizing for it's vacuity.
Lane, is this the post you want to link to Magpie Tales? I left instructions on your other blog. Let me know if you still have trouble, and I can link it for you.
no need to appologize...your magpie sends the mind a wandering..
i like this. more than anything i like the simplicity in first read but how it's so complicated in after thought
To me this a poetic expression we feel when we have 'a brush' with an old love. A little wistful memory, but there is no going back to a ghost. Neat, simple yet says so much.
Sad, but very well-done.
