    R.I.P. Ted Sheridan... you were a wonderful poet (and mentor / encourager) to me... and when you told me after Hxx passed that *you were not much longer for this world yourself*... your brain was a goody... and sorely missed you will be by me... within within is wit... and fondly I remember it now... till the *next meeting* within the aroha... remembrances...

    your poems nerrate the natural truth.

  • Amanda Lukas (4/9/2008 9:24:00 AM)

    A master of the art of sarcasm and wit, with pieces that both stir and charm the senses.

  • Ivan Donn Carswell (10/25/2007 12:54:00 PM)

    Ted Sheridan's redeeming virtues like his writing talent are real, not virtual. He stepped free of poetic mediocrity through a singular style and unique turn of phrase - all without pretention or ostentation. What you see is what you get - real observations, wit, wisdom and an inimitable verve. Rock on Ted! Regards, Ivan

    Fantastic! Deep thoughts and meaningful messages. Society needs such poets. Go strong, dear Ted!

  • Anna Russell (8/30/2007 5:08:00 PM)

    Ahh...like a pint of ice cold Guiness in the middle of a heatwave. Or new shoes. Well, I might be exaggerating about that last one, but still, he a damned good poet - and a damned fine man to boot.

    It is said that first impressions can be decieving. I came late to Ted's writing because I was off-line for a while.

    Tara's comment says it all really.

    For me personally, I find a warmth to Ted's poems. They have a modern approach and yet are overflowing with emotion. His talent seems to be natural, but this is not meant to blind one to the fact that Ted is disciplined in his approach.

    Rarely have I seen sloppiness in Ted's works: his structures are fitting and no words seem to be wasted or put there for reasons of pretention.

    Ted -

    Keep rocking the boat baby! ....And if that dog with his head on his paws ever starts his revolution, tell him I'm in!

    I love to read this mans work. Straight from the hip. Blunt. Poetic. Engaging. Erudite. Miss him, miss out. Perfect poet. And I wasn't even going for alliteration, just admiration. t x

The religious man
may have a questionable retirement plan
his devout faith in God
will always pay him the highest dividends….

Smoking Gun

She kisses me with electronically
emailed but all too deadly kisses
She hugs me with caressing adjectives
and misplaced prepositions
She ties me up with my own
grammatical errors and misspellings
She finds me all to easy and willing......
Just like a bloodhound
she has followed my scent
