About Me: [edited November 1,2014]

PH seems to leave the apostrophes out of my bio, so i have replaced them; maybe they will stick now? I think one of my high school English teachers gave me the only D I ever got on a postcard [gee, over a year after writing this bio i went to edit it and found that i wrote postcard instead of the correct word(s) : 'report card'; i guess that is what happens to a retired U.S.postal worker! ] Proofreading does make a difference! That was my LOW mark! Just so ya know, ya know? But who's counting?
I was a conscientious objector during the Vietnam conflict/war after i quit college my senior year. Ive been a delivery truck driver, a ... more »

    Bri Edward's comments on other's poems attracted my attention and I always wished to have his comments on my poems.He minutely analyses a poem and any slightest error in grammar, spelling or punctuation does not escape his eyes..Though he loves to write humorous poems, he is a social thinker and expresses his views on many social issues.He is a great asset for the world of poetry.

    Someone

    Someone who might not be residing at the skies,
    as there are no skies,
    and one who lives somewhere inside us,
    may be our super ego,
    or our thinking with a mighty will power,
    I am sure is present in my friend and teacher,
    Bri Edwards,
    He will play his role,
    and He will protect and cure
    all the senses of my friend,
    a thinker,
    a guiding critic,
    and a poet as well,
    and overall a normal man,
    may not be an Angel,
    but not a Devil, too,
    he is just a wonderful man.
    I am sure he will survive with all his five senses,
    besides his amazing and fore sighting sixth sense.
    All the best for my dear teacher,
    Bri Edwards!
    Let us pray!
    Yes, I believe in prayers.
    we all are separated units,
    like electrons, protons and neutrons of an atom,
    still we are joined,
    and affect thinking of each other.
    I believe our prayers will affect the thinking of Bri Edwards,
    and his will power will give a new shine to the blue stars!
    Amen!

    What has happened to Bri Edwards. There is no news of him.......! He said he had some problems with his eyes. But is it so serious as to keep him from poem hunter for so long, I wonder! He is sorely missed........!

  • Valsa George Valsa George (6/30/2015 11:04:00 PM)

    Bri is perhaps the most vibrant presence now on poem hunter. His humorous writings stand apart. I don't think any other poet here would venture to handle themes the way he does. Also I wonder if any one else is capable of writing in the same style. Sometimes his poems tend to be a little bawdy. Still there is a lot of wisdom in his humour. His comments on others' poems are lessons in Semantics, grammar and spelling. No mistake escapes his x-ray eyes! However his corrective lessons make us a little more cautious. I wish this 'young man' lots of luck and a fruitful poetic career!

    I apologize for taking two years to get around to reading your comment on When Nature Resounds. But your comment caught my interest and made me try out your suggestions- but not the one about the Shapely Damsel in the Floral Pattern Dress, she stays! Thanks.

    Wisdom through humour....thanks so much for the epic, the great, the awesome poetry.

  • Elena Plotkin (12/30/2014 1:36:00 PM)

    Dear Bri,

    Hope you have a happy and healthy New Year! Hope Christmas brought you cheer!
    Don't forget to kiss and feed the reindeer.

    All the best,
    Your PH friend Elena Plotkin

My English Sucks ….. [english ('poor') : Almost Medium Length; Education And Life; Ph- Inspired]

When I were schooled english wernt my thing.
