Life is an infinite continuum, feeding on its own death. Our mortality, real and imagined, lives within. We can always see these truths with a discerning eye. The mirrored images that seem like two, are but one, a parallel universe whose paths cross like a wisp of wind, we are all of one time, like prose and poems written in separate centuries, but of the same struggle. There, always there, truth never hides, except for those who don’t seek it  for fear of what they might find. From light to dark we fly in different directions though toward the same destination. What matters is what we do on our flight. Do we see the paths of leaves as they float on the pond, the reflection of the sky beyond, and the trees, who have now shed their leaves but will reflect full in the spring; beneath the leaves, the roots of the lily pads  and the stare of a wary carp who looks from his world as we do from ours? We must find time on our journey to read, play a game, or simply sit and wonder at the marvels around us, for death will come in its own time…

Anyone getting more aggravated by continued format changes with ad placements. Now they've reconfigured so there is an in your face ad next to our name on top! Next there will be ads in the middle of our poems. Premium members should not have to endure this. What say you!!

    Since reading this, I've really started to notice them and agree with all the vitriol.

    The ads are necessary for revenue; this I understand. Though I am not in agreement with where they are being placed.

    The moving and blinking ads are the worst. They drive me up the wall! It's hard to read with them blinking in your face. I understand the need for advertisements... but the blinking and moving ones are horrible! They certainly don't help my epilepsy.

    It will continue as long as we allow it to.

    what about this new look of our poetry pages? All of a sudden it is different and I liked the old way better.

    I use Ad Blocker Plus, an extension to Chrome. It will block most of the ads by itself, but you can also manually tweak it for specific pages to get rid of ads (or anything else you don't want to see) in a selected area of the page. Basically it tells the browser to not render that part of the page.

    Gosh, Roy, I may have to tell my Geeksquad people to set that up for me!! I pay 100 a year to give them free reign to go in on my computer and fix anything I can't figure out!

    I'd love that....Don't know how to do it! :( Thanks for the tip, Roy.

    Ps. I wish there were a button on my computer that said "Never show me an ad again." I'll bet the ad companies would sell it too.

    Considering what it costs for a membership, I think we deserve a whole lot better than that. It would be nice if premium members were altogether exempt from the over-saturation of ads.

    Advertisements INSIDE the poem title field LOL! I checked....when opened, my poems now have 3X3inch ads inside of them, including rapidly flashing ads -- Ha!

    Agreed Linda, I can see why they would have to do it with free members but paying members is different.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one seeing this... How sad!!!! We all have to go through this. I did not like seeing the ads, on the inside next to the poet's name. Linda
