A mesmerising octet here, L. B. Mek, your words cascade like a thunderous; yet serene waterfall.

Bravo, and I hope all is well.

Poetic Dan said:

In a world that has abundance it is truly sad that our beautiful minds and talent still don\'t create balance before fashion or the next gadgets to be had.

Saddest human fact we struggle to learn until its gone!

Always a fantastic reminder to see how privileged most of us are, even with mental battle scars.

Water, Water everywhere, but for some not enough to drink
Your words should make us stop, reflect and think.

A fine reminder and well expressed in your verse ;here L.B. - - we are truly fortunate with gifts like fresh water to drink while across the ocean its lack causes suffering - to sponsor a well-dig for a small village is one way to help - - thank you for bringing World Water Day more to our attention my friend.

You touched on and reminded us of one of this world\'s most important problem in your well written poem. Water and food! We are indeed lucky!

So very true Mek, we are so fortunate in our lives but those without water can be helped if only those in power would climb down from their ivory towers and see the real world.

Each creation is greeted with likes, sometimes poorly presented and it amazes me how many likes it gets, then there’s those which I’ve spent hours working on, and they are ignored! I would say the labor is good for the soul, and the likes are just the aftermath one should not rely on to boost ones EGO,
Of course, I’m referring to another site! But comments are always a joy!

Lol , I hope I didn’t go off topic, Great Poem as always

If \"ambitious acts of selfless unity.\" drives us we become wordy heroes as this insightful verse.shows. That \"mind-set cultivation \" can raise us to \"trailblazers\" I wholeheartedly second my friend. An inspiring read.

‘I speak to paper’: to tame, my surrender
Gary Edward Geraci said:

I enjoyed the chase required of me so that I might, at least partially, come to understand your intellectual/philosophical poem. Yes, I had to look up both the philosopher and the French language used. This was enjoyable and so I thank you for the well thought out sentiments conveyed here. While I’m more inclined now (and experienced) to freely offer myself to others without any anticipation of payback - this was learned - and initially willed - against the forces of an objecting human nature. So self-love is partially responsible even in practicing the virtue of religion. But then the unmerited grace of God begins to assist and one really becomes cognizant of changes in oneself that go beyond that which could have been personally willed ... ah, it’s better experienced than described. And that’s my constant challenge as a poet, perhaps yours as well.

Within this i read that we all should recognise we are stardust. All made of the universal material .... our mother.
Maybe such a realisation would gain our planet the same respect as we willingly give our birth mother.
On re-reading your words for clarity i found them provoking the above sentiment.

Dove said:

Beautifully written, a wondrous metaphor from the depths of Mother Earth

A flower , a plume,
it’s toxic perfume
Sunshine or grace
a wonderful embrace
In the depth of her veins
Volcanica remains
Untouchable by flames

L.B. your use of imagery captivated me. Your last line, /we get to call you: mother/ reminded me of my poem where I use the word \"womb\" to refer to nature\'s nurturing embrace. Thank you for sharing. This is the kind of poem that has to be read over and over again because there\'s such a deep significance in it.

Inspiring read, L.B. Life is determined.
Scientists accidentally found life under 3,000 feet of ice in Antarctica. \'Never in a million years\' would they have expected it, the lead scientist said. Scientists stumbled upon life under 3,000 feet of ice in Antarctica. They found two types of unidentified animals, where they had thought nothing could live.

I originally thought todays offering was about mother earth .. and yes .. it might be .. but then , something clicked .. and I began to fancy having recently heard of a new species of plant that grows beneath the soil on volcanos .. having since tried to Google .. I think maybe I am deluding myself ..

At the end of the day though, I\'m with Fay ..
these words are so deserving to be read and read again .. it would be a crime not to ..

What I love about your poetry is whilst fully understanding your message, I’m learning a lesson in language and use of words. I’m not the brightest as you can tell through my words, simple but too the point. I enjoy the journey and the expansion and opening up of my mind upon reading yours. Thank you for the education x

Munro said:

Your words tinker amongst the greatness in the avenues of inquisitive eyes on volcanic streets
You walk steadily the eruption never
Bothering your wandering legs
Nor burning your soul as you stay in the coolness of holiness

Great diction LB - a life lived in isolation - of self preservation out side of a preserving community - the mood is set well here in this piece - maybe a misanthropic protagonist?

Munro said:

Thoust .shake thy words and rattle your pages , thoust spread your quill in motivation ,thoust deliverance
Measures the impedance,of paragraphing evidence supremely in the questionable eyes of experts ,amaze the critics and calm the glistening tongues that’s speak impoverished words against you ,,for hear lies the majestic human embryo of estastic youth
