Re: Kaliyuga

How can I compete with Yeats? Bob.
I did my best. I did work hard.
The imagery part goes missing.
Another exercise!

Re: Road I Never Cross

It is an attempt, Bob. Learning to do something different.
Is it strained and artificial?

Re: Kaliyuga

Thanks, Michael.

Your workshopping lends an impetus to the poem.
I will revise accordingly.

I am familiar with Yeats but have not read the poem.
I will read and try to improve mine.

Vey good choices, Michael.
Thanks for excluding my poem which Bob has nominated,
I know it is a poem but not one to represent the board.

Baffling Silence

Trees with huge branches stay dumb like big stone walls, leaves do not flutter nor rustle with a whiz, tweets of birds cannot be heard. Could this be a premonition? I wonder. Anything hazardous is on the anvil, I deliberate. Nothing at all it is hallucination haunting, I reconcile. Lost in thoughts ...

Long Hair Named Desire

I am fascinated by long hair one of my friends had, I do not know if she still has a very long hair, thick gleaming reached up to the knees, My short, soft, wavy hair looked so poorly beside hers. My mom plaited them when I was a kid. I tie my hair little above the neck held by a small black hair ba...
