    In this modern age, the Ku encompasses many styles and meanings in it's form, no longer 'required' to address only the ocean or the moon. There are far too many rules of the form to allow them to restrict the beauty of it's simplicity. Having said that, I find yours to be a lovely compilation that reads flawlessly. Well done. The Ku really is charming with it's simplistic lines.

    'when reality must be re-learned
    a page is turned, a page is turned
    one hand stops, another finds
    time ticks on as life reminds...'

    lovely, sorrowfull, well-written

    I will quote my friend here

    'my mum, her mum and her dad were recently discussing old memories. this poem popped up that my great grandma used to sing to my mum. it was an early 1900's poem and it went something along the lines of....'

    'a pennorth of rice if you please mr. grit, the jar in my cupboard needs filling. Some harricot beans and a tin of sardines, the size that you sell for a shilling...'

    They recall nothing else...the mums mother used to sing it to her THANK YOU!

    it's Plath. (yay! I am a huge Plath fan)
    She uses poetic devices to illustrate the lost...
    ideals...of childhood and to show the limitations
    put on an adult woman that has been raised with the constraints those childhood nursury rhymes impose on female children, also - though-
    showing how those same rhymes have inspired many female children to
    get in to writing. Plath fractured everything she looked at...
    and in so doing, was able to give her readers a fractured, , , new view
    of the object she was looking at.
