message to the universe of pathetic

by Kristina Woodhill

your comments
I read and relish
every one

I reply and error
flips its lid

I still reply
maybe one will slip through

to one of you

my thanks
my thanks
my thanks

Nicely put Kristina. I feel your pain. Have you read V. Blake's message on the main page or my sharing of it in the General Discussion forum? Looks like we're stuck with the way things are unless Gavin has a change of heart in fixing the bugs.

yes, i feel the same way. i still reply to every comment i receive (unless i accidentally miss one), and hope the replies get through. in particular, your comment on "Venn Cross" a few weeks ago was really lovely (pretty sure it made my day), so i really wanted my appreciative reply to get to you. :) the comment made me think about places i've been, and places i haven't been, and the fact that (in recent years at least) i've seldom written about places; since reading it, i've found myself writing about places more. :) so, thank you for that. :)

Courage Kristina, know that enough of you gets through to well-feed our souls. Thank you dear lady.

Kristina, this is genius, and sharp as a surgeon's scalpel, this poem of yours cuts to the quick, tells it all, so splendidly, and is humorously on the ball.

Thank you for this. I am embarrassed to contemplate how often I have read comments here. As one who is still having a hard time taking responsibility for this compulsion, I wish I could care less, but that would be self-delusion greater than that anything I have written has any significance. If one symptom of problematic inner dialog is ... poetry, then this is the pathologic history of our community.

Nicely elegant simplicity in stating y/our frustrations and a solution of sorts. And yes, thank you, all of you for comments received but only spotted tardily
