embers




it would be nice


not to be bent


like this tree


carrying the curve of the hill




the wind does it


or someone in childhood


who plants fear in our roots




it would be nice


to disappear


into a woman's heart




dancing can do it


until we call for more wine


to fuel our crowded feet




no sense wanting


what wasn't made or graced


it's just i can't help noticing


this old world growing older

It would be nice . There may be no sense to the wanting yet desire fuels us does it not? And sometimes if we are lucky the outcome may be some beautiful poetry like this. Nice to see you!

hearing a poets voice is like hearing the alumnus speak from a soul whos school is steeped with amulet's. I use to ride by the UofM campus and imagine my hands running thru the ivy of the towers,
tracing the inscription that were never meant to be read by me. Too bad and too late, I would shout to myself, even today. Words, if you can display them, if you can imagine their conditions, are meant for everybody..I mean, not their appeal but their essence /
thank you my friend for the many inspirations...dana

Edward.

How lovely to hear you articulate your beautiful poems; I was enthralled as I listened.

Always you make me feel what you write, but listening to you added immensely to my enjoyment.

Of them all, 'Fisherman,' was my favourite.

Beccy.

' it would be nice - to disappear - into a woman's heart '... such beautiful words.

Methinks you've disappeared into a great many hearts, Sir Hart..

And the world lives on and on while we tarry along with it and get by the best we can; rather nice to dance and enjoy the wine as one braces for the gales of life.

Those bent trees that influence out moments, a womans heart and a mans can come together in this way as well.
