... He'd better!! :)) xx





We have ached for his migratory call

as for a creaking hinge of geese

oiling windowless skies;


with all the resurrected prowess

of Titanic he returns,


glory of Mourne’s peaked mists

the miasma of sails on his

South China sloop,


scent of frangipani feathering

his breast-stroke wake.


With dragon-fire heart and

mind the maths of pyramids,


Jove’s laughter gongs his words

while wit of sharp Ulysses

helium-fills his heels:


Jack Flash jumps back…

Kate, that is quite a warm welcome for the master quill. I know John is very pleased with the reintroduction. "the miasma of sails on his South China sloop" and "wit of sharp Ulysses" masterful clues to this aficionada. Let us hope the ink remains wet on his quill and continues to please for a long time to come. I wish you love and peace my dear friend, Jon Michael

something grand happening here, Kate! You go from strength to strength, from peak to peak. And how you went from here to there, I'll never know! getting help from above in your poetic journey, I think. :-)

I haven't a clue, but your imagery is true blue. Loved every line with my imagination running wild.

Poseidon smiles, his waves smoothed by this mariner's lyrical enchantments. Elegant verses woven with affection -- my heart literally jumped!

Jumpin Jack Flash; he's a gas. I've got a little dog now who can't sit still, and he can hop six-foot fences, so I call him Jumpin Jack Flash, too.

quite sophisticated imagery you've rendered in this characterization ... as long as Jack Flash has the wit of Ulysses, i'm sure he jump to lands the Titanic only dreamed about sailing to ...

a panoply of poesy here... tauntalizingly resonant with an iconographical iteration of imagery... taut with resonant characterization... you leave your readers reeling in the aftermath of the Jack Flash drive... and just when you think the memory's full... it holds another megabyte... wonderful imagery, Kate... I especially like your opening salvo... salut!

Peace is a plosive followed by a liquid followed by a sibilant... thankfully it is also, so much more... make it so much more...

Another rich tapestry of color swaths that illuminate well traveled terrain with vibrancy and power. I jumped back along with Jack Flash.
