As you may guess from this picture I love cycling in the woods. Make yourself comfortable and enjoy the ride. I blog about books, art, literature and writing.
Welcome to my magic blog.
Congratulations on another published poem. You are a published poet many times over .The picture of the carousel fits the image perfectly. I feel there may be a lot more metaphors than I understood. I'll read it again later.
Thanks, Manzi. It is an honor to know that you are compelled to read it more than once.
Wonderful poem, Julia, and congratulations on getting it published! Everything spinning around its center is a very powerful image, and all the examples in your verses are so true. The carousel image here perfectly fits the poem. I left a comment on the site. Btw, I actually put my real name, Madilyn, not just my blog nickname. :)
Thanks, Madilyn!I love the comment you left. It is so true.
Hi Julia - the iron centre .. the plastic outerness .. the tacky stuff of life - then the important water of life that's toxic ... So pleased your poems are getting published and we can become more aware through your poetry .. cheers Hilary
Thanks, Hilary.We live in a world of irony...Thank you for taking the time to read and to enjoy my poem!
Congratulations Julia on getting another poem published.
Very good news, Julia! Congratulations on having some more of your poetry published!
Thank you, Nellie.Each poem and each story that gets published is a dream that becomes a reality.
Hi Julia,Ah there be irony in your poem. And those in the inner circle shall no longer dismiss us with their spin on their alleged morality.Thank you, Julia.In kindness and a carousel,Gary
Gary, I think you completed my idea with the post you wrote today. Thank you, Gary.Have a lovely weekend.
Congratulations, Julie. Your poen raises valid points, I think.
Thank you very much for reading it, Patsy!
I enjoyed this poem very much. Congratulations, and thanks for letting us read it.
Thank you, Elizabeth!
From the title I thought it would be whimsical, relating to childhood. Instead there is a stark, piercing reality to it. Sad but true, and the imagry is vivid. Well done.
Thank you for reading my poem, Shine Inspire. I love your name.
I love that line, 'the bottled up reality.' So true today, isn't it. Nice poem.
Yes, so true today and yesterday.My favorite lines are:"Everything spins around its center"and "The moral man is bragging about his perfection,poking us with furry toys made in China." My mother thinks my poem is aggressive. My father likes it...I can't please every reader, I guess.
I appreciate each and every comment. Thank you.
