This speaks of exactly how I felt when I moved here...I am happy you too found such a place...Me and my 15 or so cats enjoy the same thoughts!

It feels good to find your style and unique voice again. A bridge is such a strong symbol, especially when we can link the symbol to a place that holds memories from our past.

I really love your vision of nature - realistic and spiritual - (never disneylike). Then comes the city, dysfunctional, broken worlds around us.
A strong voice indeed.

seventies memories (Article) - 6/15/2008 5:38:09 PM
Manny, I can a lot of this seventies memories. Here in the East we had a few other things, but mostly all the same. Those were the days my friend, we thought they'd never end, those were the days, oh yes those were the days! Great memorable poem!
To peace and love,

At first, it reminded me of Billy Joel's "We didn't Start the Fire", but WOW, in the middle I stopped, and started over again. On the second read, I could appreciate the build up towards the middle-- rockets shooting, and then the exPloSion oF fIrewORks. Then there was a quieting down, a gradual dimenishing to nastalgia.
I like how you name names in this piece. It makes it more personal. --Charlie

I'm not sure what happened to the first paragraph of this... ? Anyways, I love that you don't say the shack was "old", but that it had wrinkles-- that gives it so much character-- friendly-- homey-- simple-- loving-- like an elderly great-grandparent to tend and be fond of. You always have great ideas. --Charlie

Ahhhh, I sit here among the 13 acres of trees surrounding my small log cabin and I am thankful I left the city where I worked that is also changing as you describe...And it will never stop...that is what is sad!

I feel as if I now am part of your life! Your words tumble toward us, seeking a response...and we are unworthy to have come to know them! I am in awe...with no words to respond...
Sleepless Night In Stockton (Poetry) - 2/20/2008 12:23:01 AM
WOW! This poem rather very long, kept me spellbound!
You write of truth and stark reality!
With an amazing soft flowww...
Close the blinds

as your night spirits lift you
from where you been!
I will be reading/following you often, you touch my heart deeply! Your style cannot be denied, it's a simple but intense of expressing!

Manny, this is the most beautiful poem I've read in my entire life--and that's saying something, as I'm an avid reader of verse! What you say just melts into me like butter on hot, homemade bread. I've struggled so hard to express the same things--but could not write it. What you say completes me, and I'm crying, because it's finally been said. Thank you. --Charlie

Holy Cow! You said exactly what I'm experiencing. I grew up on a 1000 acre farm in S. Idaho. 26 first cousins in a square mile, and running bare-footed through the fields, the pasture, the zig-zagging ditches laced with siphon tubes. I was so FREEEEEE!!! Now life is mapped out on a grid--on the grid. At least 3000 people now live where once lived maybe 20 families. The pastures are all subdivided and fenced in--organized insanity. What a waste of humanity. How can the spirit soar, when life is plotted out for you in such way? Our children cannot run free as we did. Even my dogs cannot roam free--collars, tags and chains around their necks so they can walk "legally" around the miniscual block. Boy have you nailed it--and with such fluidity of words. A musical rant. I love it. --Charlie

Your writing is exceptional.
I read a lot, say what I like in poems, but rarely find that a whole work is outstanding.
Your writing proves how free form poetry can find its own rhythm and pulse and flow freely, full of life. You obviously enjoy working with sounds and alliterations.
But what I find here above all, is poetry with no cliché, made of integrity and experience. Words that have the strength of an engagement and that is something I need to see. Don't we all?

Stunned by the power of your words, so true, so accurately descriptive.
"I dread these pimps of poorly planned
progress for pathetic self-profit "
Clear and uncompromising with meaningful alliterations.
You are looking from a different perspective and described what most people have become unable to see. Which is also the meaning of poetry.
"areas once always open and free
of eyes of steel and robotic gates
and fortresses of concrete
high as prison walls "
Great imagery till the very last words.

The Tree (Poetry) - 10/21/2007 8:09:11 PM
another gem for our readers here at AD.
Do you mind if I introduce you to my trackers?
I Dread (Poetry) - 10/21/2007 7:52:46 PM
A very elogantly poignant tale as to the fate of what is already here and what is yet to come. So sad when quiet, serene places are eaten up by what we all call progress.....
Sleepless Night In Stockton (Poetry) - 10/21/2007 4:39:45 PM
I enjoyed this very much...write on, Poet.
I Dread (Poetry) - 10/21/2007 4:37:27 PM
