All writers have days, weeks, sometimes longer, when they don't write, so don't force it and churn out any old drivel. See it as the mind resting and thinking in itself, absorbing detail, storing it for later, waiting for the trigger. (less)

THE SAMARITAN MACHINE – STRIDER MARCUS JONES
POSTED ON DECEMBER 10, 2016

thought drops

of summer rain

making fractal ripples

who scams and snoops and shoots

in contract conversations.

rustling in black bamboo

trusts its Samaritan Machine

“I want to stand as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all kinds of things you can't see from the center.”
Kurt Vonnegut, Player Piano

Raymond Chandler, Long Goodbye

“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.”
Martin Luther King Jr., A Testament of Hope: The Essential Writings and Speeches

“And on the subject of burning books: I want to congratulate librarians, not famous for their physical strength or their powerful political connections or their great wealth, who, all over this country, have staunchly resisted anti-democratic bullies who have tried to remove certain books from their shelves, and have refused to reveal to thought police the names of persons who have checked out those titles.

So the America I loved still exists, if not in the White House or the Supreme Court or the Senate or the House of Representatives or the media. The America I love still exists at the front desks of our public libraries.”
Kurt Vonnegut, A Man Without a Country

Hi Nereid. Welcome and well met. There are many fine poets and writers here. Have fun reading.


Nereid Hi, thanks for the friend request. I am also a huge poetry and romance fan. :)

Lo Jerry! Thankye for accepting my friend request on here. Coooool overlaps. Hardy is my favourite novelist..especially Tess and The Return Of The Native. Chandler..superb in that genre..love Bogart and Bacall..The Big Sleep..fantastic dialogue and so many memorable scenes. My favourite poets are Seamus Heaney and W B Yeats but so many others living and dead run them close in certain poems. Joyce's Dubliner's is a good book of short stories to dip into. A Portrait Of The Artist As A Young Man is short but brilliant..enjoy it for yourself! Ulysees http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ulysses_..., like Cervantes Don Quixote, is best savoured at one's leisure. I love stream of consciousness.

I have been a Manchester United fan since the age of three and grew up four hundred metres from Old Trafford.

Thankye and take care...Strider
