    Any genre expression (boom boom) is merely expressionistic word-mangling to a poet. And it ain't poetry in my bigoted (and enigmatic) opinion. Cataracts or waterfalls be buggered - we bleed every time we write, like it or lump it. Nevertheless a fine piece with great use of imagery. Rgds, Ivan (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
