Daniel Brick's last comments on poems and poets

  • POEM: Capricious Creatures by anais vionet (9/25/2020 2:41:00 AM)

    You have a perfect name ANAIS. It's almost a short poem, even shorter than a senryu, but it has a musical flow. It is like a dance movement, an infectious song that lingers in memory, a message of good will. I only know one other person with the name Anais - the cosmopolitan writer Anais Nin, who wrote a lifelong diary from which she made a series of novels in the 1940s-50s. I believe your personality has riches and woders, and poems
    give you an outlet.

  • POEM: The Miracle Of Love by Sandra Feldman (9/25/2020 2:30:00 AM)

    This LOVE you celebrate is a recognition by two sincere people their fates are already
    connected to each other and so love flowers. But it's not a literal miracle, which involves
    a suspension of natural law. This love comes deep inside each of their hearts and they make a choice to be faithful to that impulse. They are responsible for their happiness.
    I find this poem to be so fresh, so innocent, so sweet. Amen to that.

  • POEM: A Scrap Of Time by Susan Williams (7/16/2020 9:38:00 AM)

    Susan the theme of this poem is contained in the need to transcend the ordinary: the speaker needs to know that her life is more than its routines. There is something hypnotic about her observations> I'm reminded of Hamlet's soliloquy of discontent: " What is a man
    If his chief good and market of his time
    Be but to sleep and feed? "
    There has to be some larger purpose than just staying alive.
