Sleepers in Translation (Book) - 6/20/2010 3:10:01 PM|
One of the finest poems I have read in many years. Sincere and touching without being sentimental. Clearly one of our best poets currently writing. Looking for to reading his new novel...
William Samuels, PHD.
Last Pictures (Short Story) - 10/22/2003 4:29:26 PM
Tears! One part hit me the hardest in this write and that was the feeling of betrayal when you pray for death for a loved one. You just don't want them to suffer anymore. My ex's Aunt had Alzheimers. The last time we saw her, we told her all the new news of the family and so forth and on our way out she blushed and said I have something to ask you, Who are you? The hit of that question I will never forget.
Who Does The Creating Here? (Article) - 10/4/2003 11:49:15 AM
Thanks, Kevin, for voicing some of my own thinking along these lines. Perhaps your friend meant that by concentrating on a specific area, his "muse" would rise to the occasion. It may be dependent on the poet's style. Anyway, for good or bad, I sometimes find that works. But you are right, the germ of a particular idea typically pops into my head without warning. As far as formal education in the specific field of poetry is concerned (MFA, etc.), any gain is probably due to the exposure to new ideas and the exercises that broaden one's perspectives. My one-sided opinion is that I don't need to specifically pay for that if I keep my eyes and brain open to the world about me.
Anyway, good article. I enjoyed it.
Who Does The Creating Here? (Article) - 10/3/2003 5:51:17 AM
I agree with you. though I would go as far to say that poetry can't be taught, there are those who can help you polish your craft, or try to anyway. I have always believed that the poet creates itself, and the poet is a vessel. Charles Simic has a great quote on the subject matter: "It took me years to admit that the poem is smarter than I am." So when the poet stated "I try to make a poem," it is the ego getting in the way of the truth.
The writing exercise mentioned is not an exercise of throwing lines together, it is not a "found poem" in a somewhat traditional sence, but an exercise to delve deeper into the subconscious. To pull out the poems that are hidden, the poems that you fear to let loose, and we all have them.

A wise sharing of thoughts. I often wonder where the thought or inspiration comes from.

An Entity's Lament (Poetry) - 12/24/2012 9:53:18 AM
It begins it. I have been here before, as I could tell.
For finding: that myself I have reborn
But not seen, is forever to persist
To gather around the seasons of space with the everlastingness of event
With the layered energy as it is made of things.
Into the logical fiber of the tribute: a thought arises
And stays on course, slowly progressing, not done.
By fear: the fear thatís been since forever,
In the same space the inseparable normal good
Being passed through mankind
Came accessible to me: I fade into remoteness
An Old Man's Enlightenment (Poetry) - 7/9/2012 10:25:24 AM
BUT TO HIM THERE IS DEATH IN LIVING AND DEATH IN DYING...OH WRETCHED MAN, WHO SHALL DELIVER HIM??!!! THERE IS ONLY 'ONE' WHO CAN DELIVER THIS OLD MAN AND SUSTAIN HIM WITH THE VICTORY OF DEFEAT. NEED I SAY MORE...? A POWERFUL MESSAGE OF A MAN WHO IS TRULY 'LOOKING IN THE MIRROR' AND FINDING IT SO PAINFUL TO COME TO TERMS WITH WHAT HE SEES. I WILL KEEP THIS. THANKS FOR SHARING. LOVE, BLESSINGS AND FAITH...JOYCE * HIS INSPIRATIONS

"A heart awake is a terrible thing,
like distance squeezed into a glove", this is very deep, indeed. Blessings to you, Kevin!

An Evening In September (Poetry) - 10/11/2011 11:01:25 PM
Beautiful writing indeed. It must have been a beautiful day and a beautiful scene. I heard that the concept of Love originated from writers and poets, and reading this I understand how that could have happened. Words can conjure powerful feelings and words can also give names to those feelings.

The Wishing Tree (Poetry) - 9/16/2011 6:48:33 PM
"Is there a center to the emptiness,
a place where all the nonsense
A question, Kevin, right at the heart
of things...we may well have to die
to know the meaning of living..and your
final line leads to that, i feel.
This made me sit up and pay full attention,
good writing does that.

You have crafted some excellent images on a worthy subject. I especially like...
"passing like a ghost through the years"
This was enjoyed. Great job!
I Am You (Poetry) - 5/1/2004 11:14:50 PM
We all know this woman. I especially like this line, as it speaks volumes:
"her sore feet walking
down long streets of indifference"
This is a sit-up-and-take-notice poem. If only we would. Thank you, Kevin.
I Am You (Poetry) - 5/1/2004 8:28:40 PM

Very lovely and wonderful imagery,
Sierra Dusk (Poetry) - 4/25/2004 2:19:21 PM
Creation mumurs ceaselessly, if only we'd listen. And if there's one thing I've learned, it's that time is relative. (Only some days, I tend to forget. Guess I need a few more lessons.)
A most thought provoking piece, Kevin. Thanks.
Sierra Dusk (Poetry) - 4/25/2004 2:07:01 PM
this one too. your images are vivid, which is not something your poems lack, but i can see it more focused here.
Bodhisatva (Poetry) - 4/25/2004 2:04:21 PM
Lack of talent? Oh, contrare.
How sad it is that Bodhisatva will never be able to go home. N'est ce pas? Meanwhile, I'll be grateful for his sacrifice and continue to dream of ultimate enlightenment.
Bodhisatva (Poetry) - 4/25/2004 2:04:18 PM

The Spear (Poetry) - 4/17/2004 6:17:37 PM
Another special piece of work by You!!!
The Spear (Poetry) - 4/17/2004 2:35:55 PM
Beat the rhythm of dark blue love,
years drifting from continent to sea,
slavery to freedom, salvation
in the work of becoming a man.
Listen in the flesh, and see within
that sweet dark face a mirror
to your own secret wish:
to find your rhythm, your country,
and the patriotism of brotherly love.
All songs belong to you, to everyone --
proving that even Time can be taught
to sing by the dignity of a man.
slavery to freedom, salvation
in the work of becoming a man.
These lines hit hard.. Superb write
The Spear (Poetry) - 4/17/2004 10:31:32 AM

Oooooooh, I like this!
Ascending Blue Mountains (Poetry) - 3/13/2004 12:44:54 PM
I could feel you reminiscing, searching for personal perspective of the blending of your own life with that of your father's. This is rich in symbolism.
I especially like this:
"The truck downshifted and I zoomed past.
One a.m. A billion stars.
The silent beauty of the mountains.
And I, ashamed to be a man."
Your pain is palpable in the last lines.
You are one deep puppy, Kevin. I suppose that's why I like your work so much. ;)

Between Worlds (Poetry) - 3/8/2004 12:21:32 PM
This just grabbed me ... it has a serious, yet whimsical feel to it. I got goosebumps reading it.
Between Worlds (Poetry) - 3/8/2004 11:26:59 AM
i was struck by this. there was whimsy to the image of teddy bears, and yet there was nothing whimsical about this whatsoever. that's the only way i can describe this.

I like the symbolism of the faceless dolls.
This is deep and thought provoking. Wonderful work!

and when life begins to break you down,
then and only then take up your pen,
and share the knowledge of your equally
foolish heart, my friends,
my dear friends.
This may teach you
the accidental wisdom you need
to begin, and provide you
with the uncommon tools to
listen to the living,
and thus be heard
by those coming to taste upon the winds
a portion of your part.
This is wonderful... words woven into wisom..
To My Fellow Poets (Poetry) - 10/7/2003 12:47:49 AM
This is excellently penned. A wonderful write indeed.

Temple of Laughter (Poetry) - 9/23/2003 10:40:22 PM
Very nice indeed. Extremely well written!
Temple of Laughter (Poetry) - 9/23/2003 3:28:28 PM
the ending is quite good as is the poem's entire. earlier i stated i noticed some change in your style, but this poem seems to be more like your older stuff, so i am still unwrapping the gift.
Temple of Laughter (Poetry) - 9/23/2003 2:31:11 PM
I really like how you bring this to it's end, Kevin. And with such truth... excellent...
Temple of Laughter (Poetry) - 9/23/2003 2:16:09 PM
This is very good. I like this: "We possess a powerful emptiness." That is very true and ends the poem well.

The Machine (Poetry) - 9/16/2003 2:46:09 PM
Kevin, i think this is my new favorite. (no seriously) i've noticed that your last two poems that you posted is going in a slightly different direction then your earlier poems. i can't pin-point it right now, but i know there is a change, a good change. Bravo!
The Machine (Poetry) - 9/16/2003 2:25:01 PM

Unbelievable liberties have been taken here -- if i existed i'd object to such utter brilliance! Dark Cloud
My Quiet Garden (Poetry) - 9/1/2003 3:44:35 PM
Hey, where did Mr. Hull's fans go: this poem is almost tolerable. In any case, it deserves silence with a signature --- Dark Cloud

Looking through things and looking past them are an art in themselves. You appear
to have perfected it.

nice poem which is about the moment, the now, and yet is left somewhere in the past. which is wonderful considering most moments are spent trying to relive old ones.
