Daniel Brick's last comments on poems and poets

  • POEM: Waiting Room by Anna Banasiak (6/15/2020 12:35:00 PM)

    " I'm confused by the turn of things." That's the theme of this poem. But you've paused to give some thought to your situation. Time is a mean trickster: sometimes to goes too fast, sometimes too slow. You fear the steady approach of death, but the waiting room is a tedious place to be. A poem like those can liberate you: you realize your mind is active, it still grasps the nature of life. Your mind conquers reality. At least, there is that possibility.

  • POEM: Insomnia by Anna Banasiak (5/14/2020 3:52:00 PM)

    Jazz on a rainy afternoon. Sitting with your dog in calm comfort. All seems well. This isn't a desperate case of insomnia. It almost seems like an excuse to slow activity to a stand still so you can check your inner self and find your identities as " lonely jazzmen" who have achieved or are about to achieve the " bliss of freedom, " which will transcend the loneliness and bring you into the mellow mood of the jazz performance.

  • POEM: Pause by Anna Banasiak (5/14/2020 3:15:00 PM)

    You and your dog - a lazy summer afternoon - you are drifting in and out of sleep - the dog is already deep in his type of sleep and everything else is paused. But the word " pause" suggests more than just a moment of time in which you drowse. It reveals your mind, poised between sleep and awake, is drawing energy from both states, and is perfectly at peace. That is how you grasp the " moment of summer" before it disappears.
