Carol Rhodes's last comments on poems and poets

  • POEM: Farewell by Sulaiman Mohd Yusof (9/19/2009 10:19:00 AM)

    So, Mister, unless another site is paying you to post your brilliant insightful trips into the human spirit and world, how could you forsake and break the loving hearts and hungry minds of all your devoted and faithful fans? Has to be that the new site will guarantee that only readers with intelligent quotients of at least 200 will be eligible, yes? Your popularity here isn't sufficient to maintain your creative impulses and genius? Just joking. We all know life isn't fair, but there are enough of us who'll be moaning and groaning, sending subliminal messages your way to keep you awake at night...if you find your Muse has abandoned you, you'll know it's us interrupting the flow, yes? With love and best wishes, I want only the best for you. Carol

  • POEM: I Am What I Am by Aparna Sinha (9/11/2009 6:43:00 PM)

    Aparna, this is a power-packed modern day struggle of enormous debasing proportions and you captured it and put the pain and shame and fight right out there for us to feel and rebel against with you and all the other marvelous 'caged' women within societies around the globe. Some oppressive circumstances are more obvious but even here in the United States, what with all our so-called equal rights, women are still expected to be what is expected of them. We, everyone, should just be able to be who we are. Why should shame be placed on a woman who is respected and revered for bearing children, for instance. That's 'holy', but her body is the essence of sin and loathing. We're, human beings, primitive beasts, I believe. We find quick and cruel ways to allay our fears and ignorance. Beautiful, pleading write, Aparna. The world must combine and be one, loving to all.

  • POEM: I Am What I Am by Aparna Sinha (9/11/2009 6:33:00 PM)

    Katia, you are only twenty-two. This poem has many fine qualities. You reach deep inside yourself, isolate your feelings and put them to paper, creating emotions that are quickly felt and absorbed by the reader. Very touching and beautiful. I mentioned your age because you are ageless...your skills and knowledge are bound to astound more and more with the passage of time. Thank you for sharing. Carol
