    RE: A Practical Kind of Loving

    This poem is a kiss on the cheek and a punch in the gut!
    Practical Love...is the kind that hurts the most.
    For in its subtex there could be thousands of
    reasons for this 'hold you distance love'.

    Many times it happens during sickness. The partner
    who is the caretaker, uses this as a defense.
    Fear...sadness all the things the take ones
    confidence enter ones fragile mind.

    Practical Love...I hope no one in my life feels
    that the type of love I need.

    Alison...I have read much of your work
    and have nothing but praise for you.

    You seem to write with your heart whos
    pen was dipped inot your soul.

    Your a credit to this site and any
    other.

    I have read some of your poems which all go to show that you are a keen observer of happenings around you, and have the ability to convert your observations into poems with extraordinary ease, in an attractive manner!

    Crikey, and I thought I had recorded my admiration for Alison's work on her 'Front Page' - I note now that I must have been too busy sending her congratulatory messages to 'get around to it'. I admire Allie's poetry; it is written effortlessly, with patent honesty and palpable sincerity. She makes you feel good. There is always cause to say something nice about it. Damn, she's a great poet & a great Aussie. On ya Gal! Rgds, Ivan

    I add further to my previous comment on Allie. It takes the most special person in the world to write such a comment on another (her beloved partner, Jerry, currently going through hell.... but perhaps not as much hell as Allie is) :

    'Jerry Hughes is the bravest man I've met. I know, because I've been sitting by his bedside for what seems like forever watching him. I've witnessed his terror on the morning of surgery, his slowly dawning realization that half of him was missing, his agonizing, perplexing and always frustrating journey through the glitches of post ICU and his abiding determination that he's going to 'come back' from it all. I am privileged to be able to keep his bed warm while he's in rehab and I look forward for however long it takes to having him home with his family at Craig Avenue. ' And then expressing simple, pure love.

    Allie, my admiration and love for you as person and poet know no bounds. t x

    A verbal portrait artist of the highest order. She writes of those close to her with affection, compassion and a keen sense of observation. Her devotion to animals, particularly her beloved peacocks, are must reading for all who celebrate our fellow earthly inhabitants.

Best Poem of Alison Cassidy

A Son Is Born

I place the peonies on the windowsill -
a perfect present for the new mum,
flushed and furry-eyed on the unmade bed.

A bonneted bundle lies in the crook of her arm.
He is small and neatly wrapped
as if he had been sent by post.

The new dad gazes at his little boy.
He looks younger than his twenty nine years
and still slightly drunk from the exhaustion of support.

Young Dylan Brendan sleeps contentedly,
his tiny hands curl and uncurl his dreams,
his mouth makes high pitched kitten sounds.

I find myself humming ‘The Water is Wide’
and ...

Your Hands

Your hands are always warm,
smooth and good to hold.
Still amazing beautiful too,
despite the scars and spots of age.

Your hands are broad and strong,
with Mount of Venus high
and nails (always manicured)
shaped like fine almonds.
