There are some things people don't think about until they are brought up in books, conversation, or in this case, a very real poem. You are on fire, unlike a witch though, but on fire like a poetry god. Congratulations on such a wonderful write. Amazing, Dah, it really is.



thank you...

Too bad I didn't read this earlier or I would have put witches into my latest poem called "just a measly poet. I love it when a poet takes on the darkness to illuminate the space around all of us. Let the wild dogs howl at the moon. Creatures Inside The Blood Ahhhh — the dogs of chaos are howling at the moon again. They are so at home in the wild wide-darkness where the cold winds blow. They move so silently and slyly on their— tiptoes. They chose their high-hills so carefully to form picturesque silhouettes in the moonlight. Their sight is so keen they can see through stones, and their hunger is so willing to gnaw on reality’s bare bones. They feel so free in the cities or out in the wilderness. They're always thirsty for the transparent truth. Let the dogs sing tonight; let their voices rise like the moon. A poet friend// © RH Peat 12/5/2010



such a dazzling comment...thank you!

I like this piece for it's acknowledgement that there are powers that be with ill-intent and ignorance. Not to be uncomfortably laughed at out of fear, nor scoffed at out of ignorance.



thank you...

lol...I just recently taken the what kind of witch I am in facebook...and the result is always love the witch theme piece whether it be computer games, movies, or literature as I also love this poem...What i like about witch is their love of nature and an open eye and I kind of research about staffs about witches like pentagrams and the like,,,,love this dah...I also read the bible but I don't perceive it literally, but metaphorically,,,I admire your boldness and with the status of yours you can dare to be blasphemous, well not in a bad way...^_^ v



thank you...

A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. It finds the thought and the thought finds the words.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
