Thank you everyone

Just a quickie here. I have to say I’m somewhat bowled over by some of the comments that people have been kind enough to leave on my poetry. I try to make every post a little worthwhile, but I confess I take special pride in the poetry.

The funny thing is that while I was rather prolific in college, I hadn’t written a poem in over twenty years. I thought this part of me was dead. Now I realize that it was only sleeping. I’m glad it’s still there.

It’s nice to know that there’s still a little zip in the ol’ fastball. For this I have to thank the man who bears an astonishing resemblance to the Muppets’ Swedish Chef.

Thanks, Murph.

    ‘still a little zip’ !?!?
    Guess that’s one way of putting it. Unlike sports though, writing and poetry come mostly from within you, and therefore being who you are is sufficient. No matter how old you get, no matter how much has been written. On the contrary, I’d even guess that age and experience works in our favour as we ripen as people. Keep writing and we’ll keep reading. Take care…..

    OK, maybe not the best analogy in the world, but I’m a bit of a baseball freak, so sometimes I just can’t help myself. But you’re right: you can be too old to play baseball, but you’re never too old to write.

    I love poetry and i used to consider myself something of a writer too. i even wrote for the school newspaper. sadly i feel like it’s slipping away although i do get inspired once in a while. i have a poetry page on my blog, if you ever get time, check it out. it’s only 3 poems and they are mushy love poems but i think they are pretty good.

    have a great day!

    Don’t give up on yourself! I hadn’t written a poem in over twenty years, and now I’ve written four in about as many months. Your poetry is quite good; you just have to believe in yourself!

    I never saw the resemblence to the Swedish Chef. Thanks for the heads up.

    You really notice it when he starts running around the shop singing, “Bork! Bork! Bork!”

    For you, anything, Lasagna Boy. 8)
