Do Not Sleep Forever, Beauty (Short Story) - 5/14/2006 10:27:52 AM
Wow! This seems so real, Anne. Thank you for sharing this gift. Love and peace to you, Regis

The Raspberry Man and His Tomato Lady (Short Story) - 7/13/2005 8:16:43 AM
A poignant write, Anne, nicely paced, with an ending that unfolds naturally and at just the right moment. I especially like the title. Well done. Regards, J. Conrad Guest

Napping, Knapping, Napping (Short Story) - 7/6/2005 9:52:51 AM
A feast for the senses, Anne, and for the pleasure of good writing.

The Raspberry Man and His Tomato Lady (Short Story) - 2/14/2005 7:48:26 AM
I really enjoyed the story.Your perception of "true love" is expressed throughout the piece,in a tender and melancholic manner. A rare piece ,slice of life...and love how you analyse the relationship that holds these two together. Anne Pawlak

Filling In the Blanks In Blank's Apartment (Short Story) - 10/1/2004 2:36:48 AM
I comment not on this piece, but on many. I read this, and then another. I started at 7.37 intending to write. At 10.30 it started to rain and I didn't notice. I began reading in sunshine. The rain came only as the rhythm of the things I read changed. As if I was reading the day there on my notebook.

Napping, Knapping, Napping (Short Story) - 6/27/2004 1:14:12 AM
An interesting slice-of-life. Strongly nostalgic and evocative.

The Raspberry Man and His Tomato Lady (Short Story) - 6/13/2004 8:32:41 PM
Dear Anne: Read two of your stories. Your writing is precise, elegant, misses none of the required elements. However, as you say, they are slice of life. I would suggest you move to something entirely fictional, and completely stop writing in the first person for the next ten stories and see what you have. You're ready to make the move, and your writing will carry you, but you must tell me a story, not dazzle me with a tour de force of your facility of language. Wonderful writing, time to move on to something bigger. Best, Gerald

Filling In the Blanks In Blank's Apartment (Short Story) - 4/4/2004 5:18:57 PM
well done

Filling In the Blanks In Blank's Apartment (Short Story) - 1/15/2004 4:49:14 PM
Anne: I love your writing style! Your colorful descriptions and uniquely brilliant perspective put a torqued spin on your words. Your grammar could use a little work, but I'll tell you what--I learned a lot from your writing style. Thank you. Scott

The Raspberry Man and His Tomato Lady (Short Story) - 1/5/2004 7:30:13 AM
Anne....this has the similiar feel to my story Dances....the mourning of a marriage, of what it is and could have been. This story has some excellant images, glimmers and sparks. You use your poetic talents here in a very strong way--narration, narration, narration!

The Raspberry Man and His Tomato Lady (Short Story) - 11/26/2003 11:37:11 AM
That was awesome. It's not often that we get to reflect on how truly successful people enjoy their lives. The Rasberry Man and his Lady Tomato are simple yet far more profound than anything one might get on "Entertainment Tonight". My point is, I wish people would seek out more stories like this than the petty, glamour stories that seem to overshadow the value of dedication. This is art.

The Raspberry Man and His Tomato Lady (Short Story) - 11/18/2003 6:26:59 AM
Great example of a decision made in a moment that took a lifetime to make. Wonderful deep, loving write!

My Mum worked in Casualty for many years…some of the things she seen would make her pale for days…..and I swear she smoked more. There is one case that she can’t forget…a lady who’s husband had taken their little girl off to the side of the road for a toilet stop… a big truck came past and swept them both away. (he was on tablets to stay awake…and fell asleep..trying to beat time) When they brought the Mother in she was so much in shock……she requested a huge cooked breakfast as she said she was starving..Mum said..the woman was still lucky then…..she hadn’t realised what had happened… was so terrible her mind refused to believe it. Nurses deserve our utter respect and admiration. A very well written piece……ty, Dani

Grace Period (Poetry) - 6/13/2008 7:14:04 AM
Nothing like swinging wherever you are, at the park, in your own backyard, everywhere there is a swing. We had a swing in our backyard, a wooden 4 seater and we always sat til about 2 a.m. in the morning with the neighbor lady Faye gossipping about the ones in the neighborhood. No air conditioning those days and too hot in house to sleep. We had many a good night out on that swing. Brings back good memories.

Too New For You (Poetry) - 6/13/2008 7:11:39 AM
Rjection can lead to depression. HOpe you conquered it and are going on with your life, keeping busy and being brave too. This is full of emotions and you have written them down and can now let them go and find true happiness again when you are ready.

Such sadness in your lines, Anne, yet a glimmer of hope: well done. Might want to check the fourth line from the top. "...use to...." Is it my persnicketiness (is that a word? LOL, but shouldn't it be "...used to...."? Just wondering... (((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

Anne, If there was anything written with more precision, I want to see it. Each word, each phase, every line is...wonderful in the mind. It is written such that I must believe it true, the deepest thoughts can be conveyed in some form. Not sure if this is off the cuff or had been a diamond in the rough, but it is just that. A diamond. I'm humbled. Gary

It has been said that sometimes, on cannot see the forest for the trees. You have expressed this superbly via your verses here, Anne. Thank you for sharing this gift. Love and peace, Regis

The Wise of it and How (Poetry) - 6/1/2006 3:31:30 PM
The first stanza pulls me right in with a chilling grip. Makes one feel stupid almost, as if not to see the things happening right in front of our eyes. Hmmm...been there I guess looking in hind sight... like most. Which now brings us into the fourth stanza, as I mentioned a bit above creates the black/white image of without. The emptiness of caring no more. A "return to evil those who done evil to us" feeling, though without the hint of "I'm sorry". The descriptive words "powerful" and "strong" used below only glimps the surface of the wound...I suspect. Great write. Gary

The Wise of it and How (Poetry) - 6/1/2006 1:10:50 PM
Strong poem with all the right answers to questions we should be always asking each other when we are in a relationship. Time slips away too easily and with it love if not tended to. Fee

I do not find it cold, but I do find it being direct and honest which if more people were so then when relationships end the pain may not be so protracted with false hopes. Well done Fee

It's Not That (Poetry) - 5/31/2006 6:39:50 PM
This piece sounds "so as a matter a fact" that it seems colder in here. Even though it is presented as a neccesary decision with some regret it has some finality to it. Or does it? I love the second stanza. Gary

Courage is always speaking and acting with truth and honesty as your template for living... Excellent poem Anne And I love that quote.. Peter

It's Not That (Poetry) - 5/31/2006 3:23:36 PM
I think it is best in these situations to hold off speaking until all of the emotions are in order and the final decisions have been made. To speak of such important matters with only a portion of the information on the table and emotions still raw is both wrong and futile and will never bring the necessary closure to the situation. Very well written poem! Take care, Sherry

Never Too Much to Ask (Poetry) - 5/29/2006 6:07:28 PM
The task of looking at oneself with the objective in mind to fix, find, or whatever the intent has a cost associated with it. Looking back to find the future is a human trait we all live to forget and then stare at the b/w polaroids on a Sunday afternoon to again recall what we purposed to fade away. Gary

Never Too Much to Ask (Poetry) - 5/29/2006 5:54:39 PM

This poem really touched me with the i wish and well this poem let me reflect on what I once thought, still think sometimes. Very well done Anne!

Excellent imaginative and creative prose "...two steps forward, one step back to me..." so true from the heart. Thanks for sharing, Gloria

Sigh...! If only indeed, Anne. Thank you for sharing this gift. Love and peace, Regis

untitled (Poetry) - 4/27/2006 10:05:42 AM
Anne-- I've missed reading your work (through no fault but my own). I love the use of the wording in this one particularly the reference made to the want of purity in soul/life. Untouched by any other. You conclude with the reality of the present knowing the things wished are usually a pipe dream. Great work. Gary

very good. I, too, wrestle with those "if onlys". Thankfully, the now is pretty great in itself. I hope that yours is as well. Susan

Refusing to Swallow (Poetry) - 4/11/2006 1:49:31 PM
Anne, I think I am going to commission you to write any and all break-up letters for me from now on. The essence you've captured here is just gut naked reality. That which you do not swallow, works out very well in print nevertheless.

Good write!

I look at your words and relate on a subconscious level to the feeling of being imprisoned, not in the sense of walls of concrete and steel but in the self imposed bonds of my own sense of worth. Felix

Pilot Light (Poetry) - 1/17/2006 10:33:11 PM
You are a truly gifted writer. I am struck by your vulnerability and sensitivity and how well you express it. I love to read about your internal thoughts and emotions and how they play out in written form. I like the "Pilot Light" metaphor. I am once again impressed by your confessional type of poetry. There is a slight hint of Sylvia Plath influence. I love it Cheers Alain

Teasing At Leaving (Poetry) - 1/17/2006 10:28:21 PM
I agree with Candy. You have a way with words and you know how to use them. Your craft is wonderfully woven and written. As always is a delight to read your work. Cheers Alain

Teasing At Leaving (Poetry) - 1/14/2006 1:43:18 PM
Fabulous to read a quality piece like this. I agree with Z's comment - and to quote Spandau Ballet (giving my age away!), 'it's only when you leave I need to love you...'

Teasing At Leaving (Poetry) - 12/15/2005 7:02:47 AM
There is often no back door, and still we stumble around our closed in little rooms, searching. When it is all here, already, found in the staying.

Teasing At Leaving (Poetry) - 12/8/2005 10:21:11 PM
I like the imagery here: blustery day... inside your head, the teakettle bit, eagle delivering news, and "no back door out of this place" rings so true to life....

Teasing At Leaving (Poetry) - 12/8/2005 12:59:12 PM
Lots of depth here in few words, excellent and somewhat haunting images.

This is intriguing and sure dose open the readers eyes to the possibilities you are offering tht topic of this write. Well done Anne. Felix

Refusing to Swallow (Poetry) - 12/3/2005 5:56:16 PM
Bitter to the end with a dash of "brutal honesty". Only some can capture the emotion while some explain it to death. You have captured it wonderfully. Gary

Pilot Light (Poetry) - 12/2/2005 7:35:46 AM
very truthful, some wounds close slow yet open with only a sigh. Did you create the pilot light? It adds a nice touch to a truly excellent poem elliott/bill

Pilot Light (Poetry) - 12/2/2005 5:08:47 AM
Excellent write... seems some wounds never heal.

Pilot Light (Poetry) - 12/1/2005 8:01:15 AM
i guess some things never really heal. maybe the pain becomes familiar after a while. i love the lines 'other homes where my heart guessed there was rest'. it's been too long ms cunningham :)

Anne, Most here probably share that same rope. I've climbed it many times before only to reach the top and have someone tell me to do it over again. Keep praying that one day our goals will not be in vain. Very emotional write.

Anne, So good to feel your pain again, to see your inside. I thirst for the inspiration that drives me through the fog of the present life. Your writing is like a fix, which I sorely needed. I’m happy to be back amongst such talent as you. We will need to catch up at some point. Gary

A heart gripping story. I loved it. Bonnie

February Snow (Poetry) - 8/22/2005 4:24:24 PM
February Snow is a gripping, harrowing, tour de force etude in prosaic confessional poetry. I admire the poets technic and supurb writing. The scent and smell of snow is powerfull. The imagery and the elements combined with the poets experience is exceptional. Enjoyed the read and the aftertaste it left on my mind. Cheers Alain

Dear Ann, the raw pain and emotion in this outstanding poem is so excellently written and expressed, I am moved so very deeply by your poem, outstanding. Reindeer

Dizzy, The Dance (Poetry) - 8/20/2005 10:05:08 AM
I am impressed at how you used words and form to make one feel as though they are rushing headlong to the bottom of the poem- that is a talent. I especially love the moon stanza.

Dizzy, The Dance (Poetry) - 8/20/2005 7:49:39 AM
Woooooeeeee Anne, you were not kidding! I have vertigo! LOL Fantastically original write. I'm so impressed! Chanti

Dizzy, The Dance (Poetry) - 8/20/2005 12:26:58 AM
This poem felt gestaltic and subliminal. Almost surrealistic. Yes I felt like a record on a recordplayer dizzy and almost out of breath. The entirety of the poem is geometric and abstract. My brain almost had its oxygen cut off. Everything in life is about movement. This is true. Everything is spinning its only relativity you are succumbing to and gravity is waiting. Enjoyed the read of this superb writing, Cheers Alain

Dizzy, The Dance (Poetry) - 8/20/2005 12:00:42 AM

Excellent reflective poem, Anne! TP

Reflection Lake (Poetry) - 8/18/2005 6:41:10 PM
Thanks for the free eye test. Yup best get new specs'. I know the feeling of waking up. Cerebral tounge, bolt upright. Perfect discription. Totally unique. Either using the eager strides to the comp' or writing the words down that only I could decipher.Sometimes. Love the reflexion and reflection. The enigma you find oneself in too. A brilliant read. Penned from a razor sharp intelligent mind..

The Snowman In The Moon (Poetry) - 8/18/2005 11:24:48 AM
The snowman in the moon poem deserves a special place among the most loved poems. I loved every detail, every word, every pause, It evoked in my spirit a panorama only experienced in dreams, perhaps pictures, or some long ago memories. I do like the leave spots against the white snow background. The poem in its totality brought me an affection for winter and all things inter-releted to a new level. I appreciate you taking the time to write it and share it with the world. I will print it out and carry a copy of it in my wallet to read it at all times. I like the line "Autumn's sky with scissored hands" it portrays nature as the designer of landscapes and ambience. All aspects of this piece of art is precious and it should be elevated as is. Not too far from here I see a log cabin with a chimney spewing forth smoke from its hearth, Cheers Alain

Reflection Lake (Poetry) - 8/18/2005 10:09:51 AM
Looking at the precipace is the beggining of the Hero's journey. Sometimes what we find there is not pleasant it can be horrific, but we must face our fears and destroy our ego. Writing is much more than ourselves. We are only riding the crest of a wave, its a balancing act. Just getting started is a chore, sometimes, but its all worthwhile. Thoughts come and go don't worry, you have plenty of them and your quills will never run dry other than this have a wonderful day! Cheers Alain

Swallowing Hard (Poetry) - 8/17/2005 7:04:52 PM
Enthralling. I can remember feeling this way once eating an apple. They say you are only a virgin once, but having these kind of senses makes you think twice. I liked the body of your work and your keen attunement to detail. Great minds think alike? right? Cheers Alain

Swallowing Hard (Poetry) - 8/17/2005 6:32:51 PM
Allow me to be the first to congratulate you on this absolutely breathtaking piece of gold. I loved this discriptive work. As soon as I read the third and fourth line, I was captivated and hungry for "clam chowder". A genuine work of art. Bonnie

inside out back under and through (Poetry) - 8/16/2005 2:33:43 AM
Dear Anne, A great play on words to illustrate your inner turmoil and pain but in this I read hope. Perhaps it is because I want to see it. Pain may unravel but love binds together. Allow yourself some love dear lady. You are worth it. Sending you a warm hug across the distance. May you 'become' all that you were meant to be. Great poetry! Love Chanti

Remains To Be Seen And Heard (Poetry) - 8/16/2005 12:54:34 AM
Your version of toy story is compelling and gripping. Brings to mind what are we missing and how are we surviving in this world without the missing pieces of our lifes? Truly harrowing is your poem in its essence but riviting in its compact reality. Loved it Cheers Alain

Winter Mourning (Poetry) - 8/16/2005 12:48:47 AM
Even with its bleak landscapes, shapes, and colors, I love winter. I love fog and grey skies, call me gothic but this is something I can live for. Truly I must also confess that I grew up in this type of environment. I love the way your poem outlines the cruelty and opaquenes of winter, but its surreal ambience is overcome by your well crafted words. Cheers Alain

inside out back under and through (Poetry) - 8/16/2005 12:43:06 AM
Your angst is palpable. A diamand has many facets but the sum makes it beautiful. Defining hurt and sorrow is difficult, writing about it makes it less painfull but sharing it makes it all worthwhile. No matter how your self turns out it will be recognizable. Excellent write and read, Cheers Alain

For all the battle scars we wear, I believe in time we know how to love that much stronger. The wounds may not heal, but they instill a new understanding, an appreciation when at last things go right...

Thank God for simplicity and choice words. I loved the beginning of this the best, because that "dys-remember" stays with the reader throughout the poem.
