    RESPECT... the written word..... first you get the flash of lightening... but always followed by the thunder that claps BOOM BOOM! ! .. and as for the girl herself...

    I repeat my previous comment and add that I am the luckiest man in the world. I will love her infinitely. She is the love of my life and it always will be so. Wow, what a woman!

    Tara is the most compassionate, intelligent, witty, warm and eloquent poet I've had the good fortune to meet on PH! Her words never fail to amaze and entertain me, anyone who has had the good chance to meet her will see (and know) why what she writes permeates... right through to the heart. Bless you Tara - you're brill! HG: -) xx

    I refer to Alison's comments below. Not because I am particularly lazy today but because she said it so well.
    For quite some time I have had many occasions when a word or two from Tara have lifted my spirits, warmed my heart so to speak. She is one of the loveliest people I have come across, even judging from this great distance. Lucky man who gets to share her time and space. And her poetry is superb precisely because of who she is. There is a soul in that lovely lady that offers to hug and be hugged and I would be standing in line at dawn with the intent of sneaking in a kiss to the sternocleidomastoid as well. Love,
    H

    Maybe her secret is by being herself, real and true! Regards.

    Who? Oh yeah! The woman I love! I'm afraid I cannot tell you the secret of Tara's poetry. I've been sworn to secrecy! She is, by far, the most wonderful woman in too many ways to list. Ez

Best Poem of Tara Sloblock

That Debilitating Disease *

I know who I am, I think, or I think I think so
as I am not sure, and not sure that I know.
I do not have the memories
to consolidate what I may think;
my memory is poor,
I am gently reassured.
Remind me. I am in that stage
where I know I will forget
the last page
of the last book
I read, or think I read….

Instead
people thrust photographs at me
but it means nothing to me;
It’s a gesture, though they are apparently
portrayals of my family.

I don’t know where I am.
I cannot walk. I depend on others
without knowing who those others...

Forgetting The Vows

… and he turns and looks me in the eyes,
Unblinking,
Unflinching,
Utterly gorgeous
(no surprise) :
and from memory
he says to me

‘I promise to love you;
