I think you must be the title-master. This one grabbed me. Good all through, except I'm not sure about 'staid'. It's so like 'stodgy'.


there you are

making me emote again. this is really beautiful. the kind of poem that after someone writes it about you, you are in someways changed forever.

excellence, intense, ... remember your westcoast bosom

This is really well written, and the title is great since...well, it pulled me in but actually fit the piece.

one nit: in the fifth stanza it should be YOUR hip, not you hip. Or you're hip. :)

I love your stuff Jon!

I am completely overcome by this...filled to over flowing. Thank you for sharing this with us.

*note to Jen*...*hug*...you have the best eyes ;-)

I quite like your constant use of seascape references throughout, it ties the thoughts together nicely. The sonstant change of rhythm by varying the stanza length gives a sea-motion feeling as well, all making it so above-average.
This reads so easily, and belies the thought that has gone into each strophe.

Excellent poem.


a beautiful poem 

Written by protestpoet  (7/13/2006 1:26:05 AM)

you brought in the punchline perfectly at the end.

A beauty~

I have to say, the poem is absolute. The words derived were far from plain and yet you managed to arrange them without looking like a poet trying too hard. I feel the title may be misleading at first but I'm sure its an analogy to waiting meaning patience? Excellente!

Well deserved 5 STAR!
