    Hmmmm a Hitchcock feel to it. Movie freaked me out as a kid, always watched as the flew in and landed on the monkey bars like in the movie. Oh yes Chris one special dash in the Soup. Hint-Let others taste first..

    ran out of room. Let me see your poem here now. ok, it sounds brilliant as ever. I love the "sound" of it, but as usual, I am probably not getting the full intent of your poetry. I think I am just too simplistic in nature and in what I enjoy seeing. But I have to say, this one is not boring at all. It really is COOL to read. soupmail.

    Chris, I appreciate you seeing my tanka. I wonder what you will think of my most recent one. I felt it came fairly close to the definition the tanka think tanks are promoting lately. I see three kinds of tankas here. One type is not tanka at all, just sentences matching syllable counts. The other type, which I usually do, not really tanka by the latest definitions, but employing clever thought or imagery. I like those kind and see many like that over here. And then the ones I am now trying to do

    Hi Chris, I don't presume to understand all you write and I think my scientific mind does not do well in more abstract writings, but I love the last two stanzas of this poem, I think it is so beautiful. If you could explain the whole poem, I would appreciate it. I would like to understand where your mind was in writing this. I am trying to understand your depth. thanks Lee

    I remember the first time I read this poem...how deeply it touched me then and now I find it even more so...where could I find words enough to tell you how beautiful this poem is?

    Now I've seen everything. I didn't know you had an alter ego. Well the Lord said what is in the dark will come to the light. I bet she looks just like you. The lady in red kissy pooh.

    @John 'The Situation' Loving III(should be: Hating III lol) -- I see that you blocked me after I critiqued your poems and character....and that was after only ONE afternoon. You've been doing it for how many years straight? Ha! You don't enjoy your own medicine?

    You are slower than I thought. How many times do I have to explain 'the situation'(lol). Someone has to tell you to stop infringing upon the human rights of another? It has to come to that before you realize? Pathetic. Please, don't claim to have meant no ill intentions. That just insults both of us all over again. Poetic critique and personal attacks/character assassination are two completely different circumstances. If you are going to consistently cut apart the poetry and character of other people, at least back-up your cruel critiques with some masterpieces of your own. From the very beginning I have openly claimed to be an amateur and a sinner. Maybe it is time for you to stop being in denial of yourself and your own abilities.

    Wonderful parrellels between Christ and the Crow God of the NA..for me one is no more believable than the other and the eternal joke is on us ;). [It's OK next time to leave me how you think it should be corrected in the comment Chris HUGS!] Light & Love

    This reads like an allegory and a morality poem. Several layers here. Reminds me of some books I read years ago about a man becoming a crow and gaining the wisomd of the Yanqui.
