Hiya Cy,

I must admit to being slightly perplexed. I have never referred to "my map of Tazzy."
But I enjoy playing Cy-Lego, so I'll tell you the Apple isle looks somewhat like a uterus.

The next move is yours.

champagne shoes, an aussie woman in some quarters will refer to her erogenous zone as her "map of tazzy".

Cy,

I'm not ready to answer that question. I tend to hallucinate when I read your poems. I was starting to kick into celebratory mode, Dear Monsieur La Rue because I read a veiled announcement of unborn baby.

I must, therefore, quash my giddy enthusiasm.

I will return.

Greetings, cy street.
Champagne suggested I read this poem and I'm glad she did. I really, really enjoyed it. Special emphasis on the really, really. This is exactly the way I wish that I could write poetry.
Being an Aussie myself, I got the Tasman metaphor. To me, it is almost like a cliche, except that the rest of the world seems oblivious to the reference.
One stanza in particular I thought was excellent -

beyond the pissarro
in the muddy bottom
ducks argue
something about sunfish
and snapping turtles

That line - something about sunfish, reads almost like a slur, and I couldn't help reading it over and over.

No criticism. I wouldn't dare presume.

Regards,

Sampo.

The photography was spectacular Cy. Was that your voice we are hearing?
Stop looking at the light. Instead, look at what is being illuminated by the light.

Yes, that is my voice and my photos. I will eventually upload a video for this one, but just wanted to get the recording out and opted for photos. What you see in most of the photos are shots from my daily 10K beach walk...Thanks for stopping by...FYI, I am in the process of moving all of my work to this place > https://medium.com/@stevenericfowler?list=followers

I hope when you move all your work here it will encourage more to come back and participate.

I will always be here. The new platform is in my real name and a silo where all the work will eventually be housed.

Best to you,
