In Praise of Other Things

I like all of the voices, the
Slight changes and tones and
Inflections that point towards
Some lone voice,
Howling in the woods. It

Just seems so pleasant to
Hear them even when I can’t
Even see who they are, these
Poets lost somewhere along
Wires and mist and signals sent
Flying across the globe. They

Say things about nature and love
And places and tastes tasted once
On long ago sands. The smell of
Warmth and midnight rain. The
Clap of thunder that wakens you
With a start. I

Hear them. I admire their voices and
Ways of saying. Those lingering
Posts that still wait to be clicked on
The silver screen…

    This is so marvelous. You have put into words what I haven’t yet, how it feels to know and interact with so many writers all over the globe. Really special, this piece

    I treasure m
    y time on dVerse — to interact with folks across the globe — all of whom are “word sensitive.” “Wires and mist and signals sent
    Flying across the globe.”
    Yes! Love moseying up to the bar and getting to know these folks.
    Nicely done!

    Yes, even after years of frequenting the dVerse Pub, I never tire of the international flair, & passionate fellowship; you are bang on as you salute the overall fellowship.

    What did we do without the Internet? Surely we must have been missing all it brings us. Lovely words.

    I love the way you have described dVerse Poets as ‘Poets lost somewhere along
    Wires and mist and signals sent
    Flying across the globe.’
