Comments about Terry Collett

    Terry Collett is one of the most astonishing, accomplished poets on this site. His work is always like a micro stage play where in a few lines the characters pop out at you and grab you by the throat. They are real and raw; reflective of their times, But don't expect any recognition for your praise; he won't talk to you. He won't discuss motivation, or make any personal comments. But it doesn't matter, I'll just keep enjoying being jolted by a new poem from Terry most mornings.....Marianne Larsen Reninger

    I have read your poem 'Together Forever'. It's touching.

Best Poem of Terry Collett

Her Beautifulness.

There's an empty cottage
at the end of this lane
Jane said

and there's a large apple tree
in the garden
and no one goes there

so maybe we can look
through the windows
and see what's there

sounds good
you said
and she smiled at you

in her shy manner
and brushed her fingers
through her long black hair

and breathed in
the summer air
and there were birds

flying overhead
and a small brook
running along side

the lane
and you felt happy
being there with her

looking at her ...

Read the full of Her Beautifulness.

Skin A Rabbit

Uncle showed you
the way to skin a rabbit.
The dead furred creature
swung from his hand.

You remember the knife
slitting open
the soft belly
and the innards
