m_cobweb: (mucha--night rest)
([personal profile] m_cobweb Mar. 15th, 2004 05:13 pm)
I turn a page
And what I have learned
Settles forward into my soul.
What I have felt remains.

I have seen others read,
Turn quickly past,
Move into the present
And on, and away

I do not say your style is wrong,
That mine is best.
Au contraire,

Merely that the sorrow
Has lingered
Far longer than the joy.

Since two friends of mine wished you happy birthday, happy birthday.

You're a poet.

Thanks for the birthday wish!

I'm frequently a better poet than that, but that was a general statement of my way of being that I wanted to get out.

What makes a "better" poem I wonder? If it expresses what you wanted to get out, then I'd say you did well. But I'm contrary like that.

I like my imagery to be more vivid and specific , and my word use a little more unusual. But this needed to be said immediately, without taking the time for all that, so it was. ;-) However, it does get across what I wanted it to pretty clearly, I think, so you could be right on that front. :-)

Well, true also. I see you have an MSW... I'm working on getting one. Right on. :)

You say you have "better" poems, and I do not doubt it. But *this* one touched me.

Thank you for sharing it.

Thank you for both posts. :-)

And you know I have to ask--what are you doing with an active LJ account, hmm? ;-)

From: [identity profile] faerieburst.livejournal.com

Active again


what are you doing with an active LJ account, hmm? ;-)

::smiles:: Well, it's like this. I got the account for the very specific purpose of responding to some nasty defamatory statements that were being made about me. Once I had done that, I left it open for about 2 weeks, just in case there was more I needed to do and then, when it was clear it had been taken care of, I deleted the account. And many peoples howled.

Ivy even made a poll asking if I should undelete it. I voted no. I lost, by margin of 29 to 1. ::smiles:: So, I caved to peer pressure. So now, I have an active LJ that allows my friends to add me and I can keep up on their lives and comment at will. But I draw the line at making my own journal entries. THAT'S just going too far!

End of story. ::takes a bow::

While I just found your page browsing through friends of friends, etc...that poem touched me as well and I thought it was very beautiful. Just wanted to say I appreciate good poetry.

Hi, and certainly! And sorry it took me so long to discover this post. Go ye forth and add to Friends list, and I'll do the same.

Hi there. severus89 recommended your LJ to me as a source of inspiration, enlightenment, and amusement. I've enjoyed the entries I've seen and would like to friend you, if you don't mind. Feel free to peruse my offerings - I'm not sure they're all that profound, but I've been known to have witty moments here and there. :) Cheers...
