Talking to Myself
L. B. Mek said:

situationally? - it depends, my friend
(everything temperate, even in your facility to be temperate)..
be yourself, because life is too draining,
to be traversed in the guise of someone else...
(such a wonderfully unique topic, thanks for sharing dear poet)

A fine write AP.
Since when was Frankie Boyle funny? Did he ever star being funny?! I\'m usually in bed by the time any stand-up comedians come on TV. Phew! There\'s loads of rubbish I miss on TV.

Talking to Myself
yellowrose said:

I don’t think it is . Maybe it’s soothing to talk to ourselves .. being friends with ourselves .

Good poem ) “ reassert my mental wealth “ ... maybe it’s good for our mental state to talk to ourselves ..

Before I was old enough to drive. I road the bus occasionally. I still remember many of them years later they were good people.

Bus Folk
Doggerel Dave said:

You know Ben, it really wasn\'t necessary to visit your home page to know you weren\'t located in London, nor Sydney for that matter.....
However away from metropolitan transportation, as I\'ve experienced on occasional holidays, the mobile club lounge can exist - although I\'ve only ever qualified for temporary membership and had to be on my best behavior...
Many thanks - for me a memory of a great little interlude.

Bus Folk
dusk arising said:

As a child and young man I used various bus services a lot and found them enjoyable mostly. The wet and cold or snowy days on crowded buses could be a trial though.

Your post today brought back some happy memories of my travels.

With age came my bus pass and I was keen to climb aboard the sleek looking Mercedes single decker bus. But oh such a disappointment was the ride quality. The whole bus shook with harsh vibration constantly and the hard seat beneath me was unforgiving. Such a change for the worse, but thank you for the memories.

Soli - (A Trio of Limericks)
dusk arising said:

I replied to dear old soli
digging his poetic quarry
upon my bended knees
dig no deeper please
he\'s clearly off his trolley

I couldn\'t resist joining in. Enjoyed your limerics.

Empty Chair
L. B. Mek said:

(Brilliant!
the best I\'ve read from your ever-so talented pen
so far,)
firstly, I love the painting you chose
its colourful features, overwhelm
such a depiction\'s capacity to convey
loneliness as all-thigs bleak, allowing us
the opportunity to envision
that chair not just
as an ostracised or neglected corner
but as a vacuum of expectancy
in our hopeful endeavour
to find that significant other;
Secondly, more importantly
your poetry just sings from start to finish
weaving a universal, yet deeply personal
and wonderfully nuanced narrative:
\'maybe I could see Grandpa again,
to both reminisce, and to talk of pain,
by playing an achy game; of unfair comparison,
for the dead are free, the living still build a prison,
or simply, I could think of her, him or them,
to dream up our relationship’s stem,\'..
what a sublime reading experience
thank you!
for choosing to share dear poet

Empty Chair
Goldfinch60 said:

Good write Ben, anybody can be in that empty chair but the one opposite me at home should be filled with my wife and often is in my heart and mind.

Love the artwork.

Empty Chair
Doggerel Dave said:

Neat piece, AS – enjoyed
Without Covid, lockdowns and on/off, the advice would be easy: “No use sitting alone in your room, come to the Cabaret”, plus: Do the ‘adventure’ and the partner may turn up…
Easy before, harder now, but nothing like involvement in a cause to find allies…
Take care of yourself.

Point well made AS - too many things to get riled up about in life; so chill (After I\'ve sorted them conservatories....)

Human Dinosaur
Accidental Poet said:

No shortage of these dinosaurs in the world today. I\'ve run into a few, and usually I ignore them knowing it is their goal just to piss off those who oppose their kind. Sometimes that can be a struggle to win at. Great write Auburn. ; )

The Relaxing Pitter-Patter on the Conservatory Roof
Neil Higgins said:

Calm calm.Who says I\'m not..eh?
If I tried to sit in my conservatory,I\'d be in the garden,as it\'s only a \" figment of my imagination\" but hey ho.
To \"chill\" I like to put my headphones on and listen to a classical concert.
A fine piece of work Ben.

The Relaxing Pitter-Patter on the Conservatory Roof
Accidental Poet said:

I think everyone goes through this from time to time Ben. I myself have a tough time staying calm when faced with ill confrontations. Usually I try to remember that it\'s a choice I make, to be angry or calm. And with calmness comes clarity. Clarity to see through things realistically and sort it out. Great write here Ben. ; )

The Relaxing Pitter-Patter on the Conservatory Roof
Goldfinch60 said:

I can understand where you come from Ben,I too have a conservatory roof and am often found in there but my choice of relaxation is music, I listen to it all the time, especially in the evenings before I go to bed.

It is so wonderful to get back together with friends that you have not seen for so many months, I met with one of mine yesterday and we shared our history of the passed months over cups of coffee, it was so good to see him face to face again.

Pity I didn\'t stop singing for 14 months, but it can\'t be helped! lol.
Oohh, a Midsummers Day meeting, the 24th June, that is. Shall I compare thee to a Summer\'s day....? or summat like that. That\'s the only line I know of it.

Neil Higgins said:

Like the words written here Ben.Like you,I have family in \"West Herefordshire\" and had not seen them for a long time,apart from \"Zoom\" calls,but did so \"live\", the other day.Stress,worry,two AZ jabs later,and surely a semblance of normally can soon return?
