The best comment


This is so far one of the best comments I have ever recieved from a native speaker as ways of my poetry. I am grateful. A reader Daniel Brick  04:45, comments the poem “The Dread Of Dead Birds”, The Darkness Will Understand “My head is spinning. This poem eludes my mind when I try to tie it down to an articulated statement. It resists paraphrase. But I do believe the meaning jumped into my consciousness where images are happy to exist as images I kept thinking of the ancient custom of reading the will of the gods and/or the course of future events in the entrails of birds. Is that relevant? What the entrails reveal or the message the birds carry could be summarized unb Matthew Arnold’s lines: We are CAUGHT BETWEEN TWO WORLDS, ONE DEAD, THE OTHER DYING TO BE BORN.”
