    I laughed out loud at the vision of a poet walking and writing at the same time! My family has a strict rule that I’m not allowed to write while walking (or use a camera while walking either) There have been a few mishaps! Thanks for the smiles!

    • I’m glad you had a good laugh, and I can see how you could imagine the old poet walking and scribbling, but that’s not the picture I had in my mind at all. I imagined him pausing here and there, perhaps sitting on a stone or a log, to take out his writing implement and paper. Just goes to show you the limitations of a handful of words sometimes!

        So …….that is the danger of letting someone read your poem. A reader can superimpose her own messy history on your lovely poem! I did understand your poem, Mark, and saw your poet carefully stopping and taking out pen and pad. But I also read my own clumsy life into it! Therein lies the humor!

        • Oh, I think readers should ALWAYS superimpose their own messy histories onto poems and any other literature that they get their hands and eyes on. Otherwise, what sense does a poem or novel or play make? Good readers are actively involved in what’s happening on the page, even if their involvement is not quite what the writer envisioned or intended. Besides, good writers write for others, not for themselves!
