    Don't you know it? Definitely a poet who springs a thought to rhyme and gives rhythm to a rhyme. Always a pleasure to come and read, your clever words have filled my need. :)

    I know the hesitation in the first few lines first-hand. "What do you do? Well (long pause) I'm an artist, a painter to be exact." Most often, as you no doubt know, the reply is, "That's nice." I needn't say to keep writing; it's clear that you will. J

    As we say here in the States...You're poet and don't know it...Oh yes David...You're a poet, so know it, grow it and then show it!...Have a wonderful and inspired Sunday my friend and keep that pen handy but PLEASE, no paper on the face, okay? (or at least punch out those little eye-holes so you can see where you're going) - Tim

    this is really heartfelt, David. I know exactly how you feel. I find myself in the same quandary. The ending was sad yet funny. A paper mask on the face? haha. What an image. pen in hand!! Loved the read.

    David,very nice eye opening write...And I thought I was the only one who paused when I said "A Poet." Ha,ha...I really liked the pen and paper mask closing. Thoughts of a true poet... :o)

    I envy you the mad desire to communicate. I've been writing poetry for more than 40 years, so I know how you feel. At 83, though, I still wish to communicate, so I read others stuff. Love, daver

    Let me put this way: You are a poet from the head to the toe, Whether all deem this another silly show - Care the less for looks and sneers, You surpass many as it appears - Just hold your pen and walk, Transform to rhymes all the talk - Spin your eyes around and observe, For you are a messenger who writes in verse!! Verrrrrrrrrry lovely poem!! Jad

  1. Date: 2/22/2013 1:16:00 PM

    For my part David you are a very talented poet and writer and somebody any one would be proud to know and yes thanks, things okay, all the family battles should be over by tomorrow night or just starting lol xx

    This is a neat theme, David. I think you did great with your end-lines -- I can interpret several different meanings from the "paper mask"....yes, I think those two words make the poem.

    Ahhh so true David, I chewed a poor pianists ear off last night at dinner who asked me how to write a hauki LOL BOY he didn't know what he was in for did HE! LOL So nice to hear from you! Light & Love Always
