Wendy Thanks for your poem - have you read Lewis Carroll, or Robert Browning, per chance? Every concept can be envisaged to have its dark side, be it the Will O' The Wisp, or Gnomes or Goblins - or one's own imagination....the biggest frightener of all, for many. My father went for a walk one night, deep into the wild and mysterious Scottish Highlands, and it grew into dusk on his way home. As

Hi Erica I really lked that - your world of shades of silvery grey - and as for all of our fears, well; I wrote, once: Let us hold our Living with open hands Borne of Truth, To grip our fears And still their growth....... regards Guy

Hi Jaq That's very endearing: I'm minded of some lines from a poem I wrote once, 30 years ago - Caught, like last night's moth, You fluttered round and round, Desperate in your addiction ... And something I penned only 10 years ago or so: - Later, the cars ran away from my window, Sadness whispered from their tyres..... And also:- .....While the night sea flirts With the wind And the walls

Thanks Deep 3 verses: 1st verse - The lightning briefly, vividly lighting up the night in a brilliant instant, with the "Treason" being the unleashed power of uncontrollable lightning strike electricity dancing around overhead pylons in wild abandonment as it shorts them out! 2nd verse - My windows actually rattled during a thunder clap right overhead, and the sound made me wonder if

99. Thunder
I wrote this from an English Gothic perspective, one dark night in 1978 - and actually in the middle of a fierce thunderstorm! --------------THUNDER----------------- In a flash, The night's curtains flickered open, Slaughtering tension in mid-air, and Treason danc├Ęd naked on the pylons. Shivering through the window panes With a whip's crack across A Team of Four, it hurtled up the urban canyo

Anyone here ever written a poem on a Nature theme? Here's one of my efforts:- ------- Shore ------ The sea shouts And gulls spill laughter in a wide sky. Ships stood guard on a ragged horizon, And the waves brought brisk tidings to you, There on the dizzy shingle. The sea drew breath from a clean shore, And the future shone at your feet - Sometimes there's magic there, where the we

Head bent, you poised there, breath bated before the Oven Vault hissing, Its jets laid bare - Lady of The Gas Rings, But you were only making rhubarb crumble! Sunlight played outside on broken glass and gravel, Sifting dust through tanned legs and sandals scuffling by an empty kerbside, Those taut young tummies trying not to rumble - For the gas ran out, and you sighed for sugar, and a coin for

Hi Owen yes I have come to grips with NZ history; I have read the Penguin History Of New Zealand. NZ is a fantastic place - about 15 years culturally speaking behind the Northern Hemisphere (Western culture, I mean) - more laid back, most people more honest and polite and sincere, and the fresh air and clean sea much nicer than the UK's.

Aside from all the scaremongering from the mainstream media etc., it's good practice to frequently wash hands and try to avoid very crowded malls etc. Also have lots of regular excercise if possible, plenty of sleep, regular fluid intake and a balanced diet, including fresh fruit and vegetables, and possibly some vitamin top-ups - as so many of these fundamentals are neglected in Western lifesty

Thanks - that is very beautiful - and it's so good to see such a great Master at play. Interestingly, the piece was originally written for piano, but is more popular on the guitar. And here I have linked to a rendering, shorter albeit, on yet a third instrument; the Violin. Enjoy.

"Allen was always more of a beatnik Jazz buff than either a hippie or so-called prog-rocker. Thelonious Monk is his hero." That's a good point, Brff - thanks. regards Guy

"Allen still sounds vital on these live recordings from 2007, not bad considering he'd have been 69 at the time." Yes, and it's interesting how some atists from yesteryear seem to perform better in the present day, despite advancing years, than do others from the same/similar period. Example - The Who - Townsend said recently they were really just a "tribute band" these days

"In November 2006 a Gong Family Unconvention was held in Amsterdam, which included a reunion of many former Gong members from the "classic" early 70s lineup. Further Gong concerts were held in London in June 2008, featuring many of the same lineup, including Allen himself, Gilli Smyth, Steve Hillage, Miquette Giraudy, and Mike Howlett." He seems to be happily settled into h

G'day! - As for we Pomms, we're not worried about those Ozzies with convict ancestry - it's those descandants of the prison warders which made us plump for NZ instead! (Only kidding you, btw!) This thing between the Ozies and the Kiwis reminds me of the jokes told mutually about each other by the Irish and the English, lol.
