Grieving... Again
Goldfinch60 said:

I lost my wife six months ago so I know that grief but I came across some words recently that certainly helped me:
\"When we lose someone we love, we must learn not to live without them, but to live with the love they left behind.\"

Grieving... Again
dusk arising said:

I have never lost someone i am really close to. I can empathise with the feeling in your writing today though. In writing about your feelings and those you\'ve lost there will be a healing. Each word, respectfully penned, a heartfelt tribute to the love shared.
Do keep writing, don\'t post it all on mps, but keep writing, let your feelings flow.

ANGELA & BRIAN said:

Thank you EDWARD for an excellent Rhyming Acrostic (difficult form) but it also has lots of Rhythm and is also - in essence - a 3 - 6 - 5 Sonnet.
Love the content - do we ever learn from our MISTAKES? WE could have been better prepared in the UK (especially with regard to PPE) but the LOCKDOWN has been effective (even though we hate it) in slowing the spread of COVID 19. Because of this we may be able to make some small concessions in JUNE. Reopening - Garden Centres - Small Shops - Primary Schools etc etc ! We may be required (like extras in a Cowboy Film) to all wear Face Masks ! It will take Months to develope a suitable Vaccine and a full return to Normality will not be in 2020 ! Angela & I are both Young 32 & 36 so we trust that we will be better prepared NEXT TIME ! Thanks for sharing - Please check our Poem today *BLUEBELLS* Thanks A & B.

Blessings & Peace to You & Yours
Love ANGELA & BRIAN 💛💛💛

The Window of My Life
Suresh said:

We are ruled by our emotions, and there is no logic to 99% of contentions we face.
So, like you, we need to find a personal space to reflect and hopefully deflect that which is negative energy.
Your poetic expression best reflects that.

The words are so appealing in this expression of coping with stress - and those final lines give a positive way of looking at outcomes. Thanks for sharing this written reliever with us Edward.

Hearing Aid
FredPeyer said:

Great poem, Edward! We always concentrate on the ones hard of hearing, never on the ones who have to live with it.
In my case, I just have selective hearing! :-)

Hearing Aid
Fay Slimm. said:

Such an honest admittance of frustrations Edward - - hearing clearly is of great value and problems when sound gets muzzy are a challenge to all concerned. An engaging read - welcome back to this friendly poetry site and am hoping to read more of your poetic work soon.

Hearing Aid
orchidee said:

Good write. I shouldn\'t jump from normal speech to yelling in one go. But if they don\'t hear after, oh about 4,357 times, you\'ll be frustrated to yell!

As Goldie says - yep, space within my mind is infinite - a vast expanse of nothing there at all, a total blank?! heehee.

Thank You everyone! I\'m sorry it took so long to reply and I hope this gets to all of you. I had pneumonia and a heart attack. I\'m going to try one today and see where it goes!

Beautifully said, Edward! It can be infinitely small or infinitely large. This is right down my alley, got me thinking, had to make it a favorite!

An Apology
Goldfinch60 said:

It is good that you write on this site, I do try to comment on poems, I think it is only fair to see the words of other poets. I admire your confession and look forward to your renewed enthusiasm.

An Apology
Christina8 said:

No, that\'s how we all learned on this site. How our replies started to dwindle and then it hit us, oh yeah, we gotta leave feedback on other poems too! Really great write!

An Apology
FredPeyer said:

Edward, I completely agree with Michael. He said everything I had in mind to say, but much more eloquently than I could have done!
The one thing I would like to say about comments is that everybody on this site is soooo friendly, and soooo kind. Sometimes toooo friendly, and toooo kind. I for one wouldn\'t mind some constructive criticism since it would help me improve my writing. But, having said that, I am only human and take a compliment with pleasure anytime! ;-)
