Those boxes may be in our lives but only the bad times in my life are hidden in them so that the light of my life is always with me.

Well said, L.B.
At least here on MPS we don\'t have to feel boxed in and can feel accepted all around.

We are born with a genuine fondness for one another we just let ourselves get talked out of it.
Good read L.B.

How true. No form or certificate can contain us. We are free will individuals. A mix of saints and sinners, black or white, qualified or not \"legitimate\" or not. Shamed by authorities who would consign us to \"type\".

Some people like to put us all in pigeon-holes or boxes, but we are all human beings worthy of equal billing on life\'s stage. A good poem, L.B.

Now that\'s a rendering of a gloomy day, still turning out to be a good day.

A good Sunday portrayed with the love of life Mek.
As you say \"A good day!\" - in my life every day is a good day.

I really enjoyed this portrayal of your Sunday morning and your thoughts of its importance. With the confinement we are all enduring it is a relief to see Sunshine and maybe some snow and find a peaceful joy in it all.
Some very fine words and it comes as being very real. - Phil A.

I very much enjoyed this one, L.B., so well written, much to think about you covered so much territory. It is a strange world we live in right now.

Good words
I sat and just watched the snow for an hour too. The breath is what its all about, but its hard to remain focused on it sometimes.

We must address our collective H2O crisis

Thank you for these wise words on the impending crisis that matters world-wide --- a moving read that highlights measures we all need to take.

Such important words Mek, but why is it that those who could help to prevent this happening put money for themselves before saving the world.

A global strategy would help. It\'s really serious. Good wake up call L.B.

Neville said:


I am so glad you penned these important words my friend ..

I like to think I would have got round to it eventually .. but as you correctly point out .. we dont have an unlimited amount of time or that precious H20 so many of us take for granted and otherwise waste by the lakefull .......... I am seriously in your corner my friend ...

We must address our collective H2O crisis
dusk arising said:

Well said sir, we must all address climate change.
Watching a very recent David Attenborough program about climate I\'m sure he pointed out that whereas drought was rife in some areas, rainfall was now rife in other areas. Trouble is that migrations of our wildlife cannot adapt to these changes.

Robert Haigh said:

Climate change and population growth are indeed causing problems throughout the world with water shortages. Only 3% of the world\'s water is fresh water, and 2/3 of that is locked up in frozen glaciers, so the problem is becoming acute for some nations. Here in Britain, where rainfall is plentiful, we don\'t often think about a potential shortage of water, but industry wastes water in startling amounts. More, clearly, needs to be done. A thought-provoking piece of poetic social commentary you have penned here, L.B.

Very well written Mek, those early nerves when staring to play at a concert are eventually overcome as the music takes over your body as it obviously does to the young lady in the clip.
It used to be that way with me but I played in groups not as an individual.

L.B. I do like how you build up to the beginning of play, the pressure, the fear, the excitement. Well done!

What a beautiful rendering of Schumann and so enjoyed your awesome wording as you describe it all ......... many thanks for sharing both with us L.B.

this is a splendid bit of seemingly self disclosive poetry .. original and one I can truly empathise with .... I really need to go tune my mandolin ....

dusk arising said:

Those early stage nerves before we start playing. The playing is of course the easy part, we have practiced and rehearsed so often to get here. And of course the music is good so now everyone relaxes, self included.

Yes, I remember similar nerves from early performances which for me began at eighteen and i was solo singing which is even more \'personal\' than solo instrument which i later went on to.

Well depicted piece from you.

Beyond anxiety: as Our Only way of Life
Doggerel Dave said:

The trouble is..(oh no it’s not that D Dave putting his oar in again? Sorry but Yes!)
The trouble is history and culture are very powerful. Solutions, of course not easy. Beyond the ‘inevitability of gradualness’ and the bearing of witness, as you are doing L.B., I (and this is very personal) would like to ban the pronoun ‘we’ (used here, there, and everywhere) from most discourse. Name names and know that Power, where it lies and how it is used is a much more useful concept.

Regards, Dave

Unfortunately the history we are told about is written by the winners, what if the losers were correct, we could be living in a wonderful world.
