|... and from the crazy, topsy-turvy windswept beaches of my Dorset shores, you will hear my eager yodelling refrain, dear Gene! How I long for those ululating days when the winds are so fierce the sound is pretty much stopped in your mouth and yet you feel the adrenalin rush of the wild scream of ecstasy or relief. Bits of DH have this effect on me as well... gotta love his odd red wicks!! :)) xx|

|The poet confronting the elements (life) with the bravado of youth, and the wisdom of experience, though challenged with an aging body. Your lament was heard by the trusty gulls. We all face a similar frustrations to one degree or another. Only the wiley and crafty poet knows the secret to victory. And at poet's end, he'll write again. Gene, this is a colorful expression filled with metaphors and superb writing my dear friend. I am entertained by your masterful rendering. I hope you are preparing another for sharing with us. I bid you love and pace.Jon Michael|

Freshly quirky and pleasurable imagery!

|I like your lines . . .
"confront the wind, wrapped in my purple mantilla,
and in a state of abulia, foregoing the will
to seek shelter in the scrabbled dunes,
ululate with the gulls."
better than D.H.'s.

|I'd pay good money to see you wrapped in your purple mantilla while you ululate with the gulls...bet you are a sight on AC beach...you'd better keep that cane till you are more sure on your legs...Ed|
