Hello Again Marianne


Notice of absence from Neville

Good Mane to one and all .. I just thought between clearing the drive of snow and trying to set off for the airport I better let those that might be interested know of my proposed leave of absence .. Off to the Algarve for a couple of weeks .. Say safe n well and catch ya upon my eventual return .. AGT's Neville :)

Hello Again Marianne


Every once, in every while ..

He just knew

his gaze would eventually

falter, fall upon

and linger, over an image

that would haunt him ..

Like some kind of

universal law, he thought ..

He had no idea though

it would be in

good old black and white ..

Or of Marianne ..

Looking, like she looks on

the rear dust cover

of Leonard Norman Cohen’s

Songs from a Room

    Oh wow, that is a whole album. Too bad there wasn't a song called 'Songs from a Room.'

    • Neville

      • crypticbard

        Got to listen to the whole album to complete the poem.

        Got to find the CD and hope it replicates the album ..too late at night...may get back, but what more can I say about Leonard that I haven't....

        • Neville

            What an album to echo within your worthy words Nev. Cohen knew how to appeal with his deep and unforgettable voice laughing and crying with missed Marianne. Thanks for the back-when reminder mon ami....x

              Nice. I guess I'm not familiar with the artist. But you always sway to the beat. Lol

              • Neville

                'I have lost a telephone
                with your smell in it'
                (just a privilege
                to read your memorable words
                dear Poet supreme!)
                love the unfolding reveal
                a soundless beat
                distilling subtlety's nuances
                a line at a time..

                • Neville

                  You are way too kind Mek and no kidding my friend .. thank you so much .. Neville
