Thank you very much.  I: Thank you very much.  I appreciate your insights.  And I agree with you regarding the Japanese forms and their inherent difficulties---a good reason why, although I love reading Haiku, I avoid writing it, and prefer to dabble in Tanka/Kyoka instead.  Back in 2007, while recovering from an illness, I read quite a bit of (and about) Bukowski.

Poetry: Poetry is a very broad church indeed, and we all have our own preferences. I love the old classical styles, but I also love some of Bukowski's work, with it's deceptively simple, conversational style. Then, of course, there are the Japanese forms, which are far more difficult to do well than many people realise. But, as you say in your fine poem here, we all want to write with as much skill and inspiration as possible.

I applaud what you said about: I applaud what you said about Patricia.  To me, she is one of the essential Poets, those whom I cannot do without, and for me that place her with Vergil, Dante, Eliot and Stevens.  Watching her oeuvre expand upon postpoems has been one of the great reading experiences of my life, comparable to those times when I first found, for myself, The Waste Land or Stevens' Collected Poems.   And while writing this, I also got to start my morning out by reading your brilliant poem, yet again.  Like the finest of poems I have read, it is always somehow new, despite how many times I have read it.  That is a sure sign of real, classic talent, and again I thank you for posting this awesome masterpiece.

Your touching, faithful write: Your touching, faithful write brings these words to my mind: "The beauty of being on a tormented ship together, rather than alone, knowing two makes a lifeboat."   Yours are the kind of sentiments with which to close the night.

Thank you: I thank you for your compliments regarding this poem. I am indeed flattered. Interesting that you should mention Patriciajj. It is partly because of her that I became a member here. I have been reading her poetry for several years (mainly at another site with a similar name: PoetryPoem), so I was already well aware of her great talent before coming here. Yes, she is probably the most gifted poet here - with all due respect to the many other fine poets on this site.
