Tomas O Carthaigh now has a poetry site live on the web at www.toc.pro.ie, check it out! A sample of his work is on the site, and replication requests will be handled through this email address. Websites wishing to swap links are invited to email with details. One of the poems is included below, and another six or so are on site. ============================== THE PAST EMPIRES The Past for many holds a kind of facination But I feel little of that at all They wonder at the rise of a nation… And marvel at a great nations fall… How empires from small nations grow… And how together they managed to hold… Only to fall as another rose long ago… As the story to them is told… The truth to them and you I now relate… The truth in it you will realise No nation should have more than the atom state… The land in proportion to their size… The reason why great empires always fall: God topples them – for theyre not real at all! ================================= A collection will be published in paperback format around next March or so. Advance orders can be requested through the above email address.

Thanks. I was looking for a poem that reminded me of my brother. He passed away five months ago. But sometimes it is still very hard. We were very close. I too work with Cisco, but Cisco Contact Centre stuff. Best of luck on the job front. Slan A Chara. Is mise, Kevin

Sadly it looks like your guestbook has now been targeted by symbiosgroup.co.uk - the company behind all these spammed messages linking to ringtone sites etc. I have had to go to great lengths to block them from my site. I wish there was a way to get back at them.

This is a message for Valerie.
Thanks for your moving entry in the portable poetry guestbook. I only read the guestbook every few weeks and I can see that you wrote it quite some time ag. I've no idea of your email (though you can include it, it's actually stripped off at processing time) so can't write to thank you personally. I'm sorry that you had to read the drivel in my journal when some uplifiting poetry was probably what you needed.
Anyway, I'm glad that you left your thoughts on the guestbook - they're hard to read but I'm happy that just writing them down helped you.
My thoughts are with you, as I'm sure, are those of anyone who reads your entry. Take care.

Hi,l was touched by your journal,people can be rude some time.l would like to share with you why l came to your site,if you don't mind.l do not wish for anything FREE just want to tell you a story that happened to me last night,ready.l'm a nurse and l worked a 3 to 11 shift last night,l guess l should tell you l'm a very good nurse with a real heart and soul,lots of people tell me l am their favorite nurse,because l care from the heart.My story is as follows,l worked on a unit4,first shift there in maybe 2 months,having a great shift laughing with patients and co-workers,at about 9:30, call came in from emerg,we had a admission,possible G.l bleed.As l watched the R.N pushing the stretcher up the hall towards me l saw our new pt,and a sadness filled my heart.A lady l had care for months before was back,she looked at me and said,"oh,my favorite nurse,l'm so glad you are taking care of me."l smiled at her and said,"l thought l told you l never wanted to see you again",l tell all my pt,not in the hospital anyway.She smiled and reached out for me,l took her hand and went with her to her new room,maybe her last home here on earth,you see she is dying of cancer.We had to put a G.I tube down her throat,not a nice thing to have happen to you,she asked to hold my hand,l gave her my hand and my heart.The tears are coming to my eyes again,forgive me if my spelling gets messy.So,with a kind word and a smile on my face,l hold her hand and her grip is so tight my fingers are turning red,butl continue to smile,at this point she started to throw up blood,lots of blood,on me,on the bed ,on my co-worker,l never let her hand go,if anything my heart was breaking at that point and for her l could not loosen my grip.............so,my friend,that is my story and l came here looking for a poem to help my heart feel better.l guess l needed to feel l'v done all l can for her,instand,l read your journal and found you,someone to tell my story to and in doing so has made my heart feel so much better,and l THANK YOU,for that.l don't know if anyone will ever read what l'v wrote,but it is ok,if you do and would like to drop me a line ,please do.Well,l must go,please take care of yourself and don't give up on people,a lot of us still have great hearts and souls,and l must say before l go,l did not get to enjoy your poems because l do not read French,sadden me........Bye for now....Val

Like two golden birds perched on the selfsame tree,
intimate friends, the ego and the Self dwell in the same body.

The former eats the sweet and sour fruits of the tree of life,
while the latter looks on in detachment.

The Portable Poetry books look delightfully beautiful! I got so engrossed in reading about how they were made that I forgot why I came here in the first place. I think it was to look for Blake's 'Chimney-Sweeper. Anyway, excellent website! :)

This is Jamaal again. I'm very sorry about the entry below. I understand that some people may find what I wrote offensive but I'm basically very immature and lacking in self confidence. I'm so, so, sorry.

I think you'd like my uniquely designed March Tenth Poetry Archive. Using a wide variety of styles from strict meter and rhyme schemes to freestyle slam, most of the works are focused on human interaction. They're organized by a series of composition notebooks - the kind you use in school. The direct URL is http://www.themarionette.com/marchtenth. Peace
