On coveting thy neighbor's mind

This one's for Monda--my way of saying I really liked this post, but I think I hate you for writing it. ;-)

On coveting thy neighbor's mind

And yes, I do know how to spell shadow. *sigh*

Bah. You've written some pretty poignant poetry too, miss. I saw it. Right here. On this web site. The web site that we're currently on.

This is wonderful, I agree with the above comment! I, like you, also tend to frequently covet my neighbors minds! Perhaps it's time to get to confession and then keep on writing the best I can!

I was in a band, sort of, with a guy who wrote a song about coveting others' songwriting abilities:
"wish I could meet all the folks who wrote them
And what a sight it would be to see
I'd take a rock and split their heads open"
-the idea being, in order to see what they have in their heads that lets them write such good stuff.

But I really liked his songs.

I'm new to your blog, but I went back to last month and read the 3 poems you had in one blog, Loss, winter pslam, and lifted. I also read the poem you wrote on the typewriter with crayon, I think. Anyways, I think your poems are really good. my favorite is yesterday (yesterday's?) the one about the butterflies. Very creative, in my opinion.
Oh, by the way I did the exercise that inspired that poem, and came out with with a poem of my own. I really liked the exercise, but it was overwhelming at first, because so many things caught my attention.

We have some poets here!! Nice LFP. And oh how our Monda is growing up *sighs*

Monda said...

Oh, no. You are a lovely poet, Little Flower, and a Ribbonista Extraordinaire.

Besides, you have that big honkin' typewriter I want so we're even.

That big honkin typewriter that we all want!!!

Anne--you write some beautiful prayer poems! Oops, there I go...coveting again. ;-)

I have too many big honkin' typewriters at the moment. There are worse problems one could have, admittedly....

Thanks for stopping by, book addict! And I'm glad my little prompt was able to bring about some new poetry!
