Wild and Precious
L. B. Mek said:

ok I\'ll admit Wall-E is a film I have a soft spot for and I thank you for introducing me to these last two provocative lines from Mary Oliver\'s \'The Summer Day\':
\'Tell me, what is it you plan to do
with your one wild and precious life?\'
https://wordsfortheyear.com/2015/06/21/the-summer-day-by-mary-oliver/

I found this is an intriguing read and your commentary questions and insightful answers: apt, especially in these challenging times,
thanks for sharing

Well that\'s no idle ability, unless you are blessed and just wandering virtual fields! A nice poem to riff off M. E. M. Haha it makes me think back not forward but that\'s a matter of years not words. A good read thanks.

I think you have what it takes - the ability to see some of what exists and the fire to wish to do something about it. Please take that fire seriously, tend it for real, and not just in the poem.

Regards Dave

ANGELA HERE ~ Good Evening M E M thanks for sharing A very moving Poem in the Classical Vilanelle Style. The Subject *Aprehension about the Memory of One when we die* suits the genre and the pathos is reinforced by the repetition & rhyme ! Thanks for sharing ~ please check our site.

Love ~ Joy & Peace to You & Yours

Remember Me
Robert Haigh said:

A fine write, and one we can all relate to, I\'m sure. We would all like to think we will be remembered with affection by those closest to us, when we die.

Relentless Breakdown
Doggerel Dave said:

Hello Andy! Have you assumed a new role; are you Chief Bot or just Bot Representative? How should I address you? Are they/you planning a massive takeover, when all responses will be in the form ??? ?
But before the situation goes really down the gurgler then it should be incumbent upon someone somewhere to answer the following questions:
How? When? Why? Who?

Kind regards, Dave
PS Instructions re the location of a \'smiley\' you supplied earlier did not yield any result. So until such time as this little issue is resolved, you will have to make a guess as to whether I\'m kidding or not, won\'t you?

That is how copy/paste interprets your rubbish. Think they\'ve got it about right..

Fake
Robert Haigh said:

A thought-provoking write. So many people today are fake in many ways. But there are still some genuine people out there who are worthy to be called real friends.

I do like this, speaking as it does of fragility and defiance. Great examples of love in stages of growth. Thanks for sharing

Breakup Letter to Poetry
Audax said:

It can be interpreted as a break up letter for anything that you were passionate about or loved to do, but things eventually lose meaning. Or value over time to the point that we get tired and are looking for something to excite us. I truly liked what you did in this piece you wrote yourself!

I\'m only seeing images/letters in Greek - honestly! It happens sometimes. A blip on the site, I thhink, affecting some browsers or something.
I can translate it - will take me a while.

Mind Block
Audax said:

Trust me, it’s not easy to be in a writer’s block mindset! Many can relate to what you are speaking about in this poem of your’s. Never fear, the inspiration will come!

String

In recent times I have cut that string from that \'alleged\' power from above and am now so much freer in my own life.

String
dusk arising said:

Oh i read into this that thing which so many have injected into their fearful childhood minds and haunts them for the rest of their lives.... god, heaven and hell and all that stuff.

Me and many like me cut those strings and found freedom.

Religious types lost in their bible babble etc need to be reminded that love, goodness, charity, and a wholesome way of living and caring existed long before some bloke invented their way of thinking.

I related to your piece in this way and found it most enjoyable. So much so that i\'m adding it to my favourites.

Dear Mind,
Goldfinch60 said:

Conscience can often bring the past troubles to the fore but they were in the past and you will have learned from them to take you into a better life.

The Final Ending
MelissaJA said:

I can see the fear in this poem... But like many poems written in the past, it is only fear and not what is to come

The Final Ending
Goldfinch60 said:

As d a has said, it has been the end of the world for every year in our lives, I have lived through 71 of them so far and it still has not ended.

The Final Ending
dusk arising said:

ooh the world\'s going to end this year. Just like it was supposed to end last year and the year before that and the year before that and the year before that and the year before that and the year before that and the year before that and the year before that and the year before that and the year before that and the year before that and the year before that and the year before that and the year before that oh and coincidentally the year before that too.

Powerless
Goldfinch60 said:

There are so many people who cannot agree with the problem but but also in the UK it has shown the good in people that has been coming out even though there is no physical contact.

Powerless
jarcher54 said:

Did we imagine starting 2020 that we would enter such enigmatic times? How ironic that, midst natural challenges that should unite mankind, the petty politics of the resentful continues to assert itself. That is the most bizarre thing to me... it\'s as if they will politicize an asteroid about to collide with earth.
