  1. Acrostic triolets

    My attention was claimed a few hours ago by someone wanting an acrostic poem. All the first letters of the lines making coherent English. The breakdown was 8,4,8 lines. I wondered about the 8-line verses. Perhaps they could be triolets. I went and looked. There are only three words in...

  2. The nation's favourite hymns

    I Vow To Thee My Country, for those who live off-planet, starts as follows: It is scandalous "my country right or wrong" jingoism at its coarsest, it is Boris Johnsonian from its roots to its eyeballs. It's what remains wrong with England. I'm horrified that it has just been voted sixth...

  4. Easy and Rain.

    these little writings are just minutes out of a day, thoughts that I try to pretty up, and maybe give others ideas.. Easy Times you beg for relief, at any price, times one minute more.

  6. A Plea Frm The Heart

    Time is lost for life is long, An ending ne'er in view. Lead me to that shining throng Far from these earth bound few. Free me from these bounden chains, A hell on earth entombed Endless mis'ry, torment reigns, Harmonious chords detuned. No foundation, chaos churning, Limts reason. Fires...

  7. Agong's Fairy Tales

    Tale 1: The Taming of the Shrew Note: This tale, entitled "The Taming of the Shrew", looks like a story for children but it is actually a fictitious story for adults, mirroring an actual political event that is happening somewhere in the world today. I am going to post the whole stories in...

  8. Checking in on old friends and some shameless self-promotion

    Long time no post! I hope everyone is doing well. Last year I had a story published in the first edition of Jitter Press and I started this year off by putting the same shirt story up for sale via Amazon Kindle Publishing. I've sold a few copies so far but what I'm asking for here is for some folks...

  9. Record of a recent exchange

    Me: I so wish I could write like this: Delores breezed along the surface of her life like a flat stone forever skipping along smooth water, rippling reality sporadically but oblivious to it consistently, until she finally lost momentum, sank, and due to an overdose of fluoride as a child which...

  12. A Request To All English Members of Forum Garden.

    Citizeness Oscar informed me in an earlier thread she duplicated that: "sorry JJ but many don't look at your threads." Even so I'm holding thumbs that maybe one or two or three English members will read this and maybe offer me some assistance. The novel I am currently working on is set in a...

  15. There Are Those Who Love To Get Dirty.

    There are those who love to get dirty and fix things. They drink coffee at dawn, beer after work, And those who stay clean, just appreciate things, At breakfast they have milk and juice at night.

  16. You Never Found Us ....

    Margaret Atwood is a brilliant Canadian novelist & poet. I just love this poem because it puts us all firmly in our place! The moment when, after many years of hard work and a long voyage you stand in the centre of your room, house, half-acre, square mile, island, country, knowing at last...

  18. Probable cause but wrong becomes illegal search, which becomes just plain stupid.

    Not that long ago in Cape Coral, Florida, around 9:30 p.m. at night a lady friend of ours was driving over to my friend's house. She was coming over to pick up her Persian cat that had spent the day in the air conditioned comfort at our place that wasn't available at her home. As said long haired...

  20. Stream of Consciousness Movement.

    I have never in my life ever encountered anyone who has read "The Waves" by Virginia Woolf. Yet she is such fascinating person ... so I am going to begin reading the novel asap just to figure out whether or not I have been missing out on something extraordinary or not.
