allets commented on: Death caress by Dalton 5 days 10 hours ago
At 70: Considering all the possibilities. Too many smiles and the laughter segues to let melancholy stay around. So much death surrounds us, so much soon, like always. . Metaphorical death, real demise - I get those mixed up. Stay a writer. Be well!

Clouds: As a kid I used to look at clouds and see all kinds of creatures. Almost scared myself sometimes.

The whole poem is eerie, and: The whole poem is eerie, and its brevity works so well to that effect, especially the verbal contours of that final line!  Your poems remind me of one of my favorite poets, J. V. Cunningham, who made brevity an art form.

The cocoon : A rather good facsimile for the beauty of theological transcendance, if i may say so myself. Really, too, that is the pursuit : like becoming a divine butterfly after all. thanks for your attention always allets

Where You Been?: Existing inside your experiences, I wager. Your woundrous poem describes my worklife 1968-2008. 40 years of boulder pushing. All uphill, sweat was the predominant feature. Most of the stuff bought, taken or given away. If I had bought stock, I would not be writing to you. So, hang tough. Vaccine due 2022, or sooner. . Some exciting belt tightening ahead! Stay tuned. .

Thanks for the kind: Thanks for the kind compliment and the insights about language that you have shared.  I like the challenge of the Tanka---because it demands such verbal compression.  One of my favorite poets, J.V. Cunningham, made an art out of just compression.  Although he did not write Tanka, his epigrams contain huge backstories and profound emotion in just a few lines of a few words.  To me, the Tanka provides opportunity to strive for that same compression.

The kind of talent you have: The kind of talent you have to be able to write a poem like this will not simply fizzle out.  I think the fact that you can write a poem like this says a lot; and saying a lot is a sign of the surge of life.
