“ The Last Word ” ~ before the silence ~


There comes a point

You’ve said it all,

And find it’s time

To turn the page,

On ill received

Words rather sage

Held less than pall,

Like bygone days

Had lost all matter

Of import salvage,

Before the silence

Settles in

A melancholy  

That sparks chagrin,

Past the last word

Where muteness fixes

To but forever gnaw,

At might have been!

    • I should point out that like most who respond to what I write refer to my work/posts as information or articles. I wish to make clear that they are neither. What I write are poems that are intended to speak to or about issues of varied subjects. If in the process they give something to the reader they can relate to, I have accomplished my goal and hopefully something of worth. But information is not my intention. In other words, and humbly I write poetry, which is a form of painting a canvas with words instead of paint, and what I hope you get is not information per se, but a sort of mental message that you can adjust to your needs. So forget information or article and think Poetry like the title of my blog website. Thank you. JJF

    • No I did not hire anyone to develop the theme. I happen to have a creative life partner, my wife, and among other interests I spent a lifetime in the design world. So between us it was a second nature thing to put the theme design together, as it is for me to write the poetry I publish, which you read, and most people keep referring to as articles instead of what they are, poems. Thanks for your intelligent comments, which is the kind that encourages me to reply. JJF

    • I started with WordPress and I stay with them. I will say what I believe most would say, until you have had your first experience why risk paying to something unknown when the highly reputable WordPress offers its services for free. Good luck. JJF

  61. I like the helpful information you provide in your writing. I will bookmark your weblog and check again here regularly. I am quite sure I will learn plenty right here! Best of luck for the next!

  62. There are some interesting points in time in this writing but I don’t know if I see all of them center to the heart. There is validity but I will hold my opinion until I look further. Good post , thanks and we want more! Added to Feed Burner as well.

  63. I think this website has got some rattling superb information for everyone :D. “Anybody who watches three games of football in a row should be declared brain dead.” by Erma Bombeck.

  65. Very nice post. I just stumbled upon your weblog and wanted to say that I have truly enjoyed browsing your blog posts. In any case I’ll be subscribing to your rss feed and I hope you write again very soon!

  66. This was extremely tough to find there was a great deal of entries on this, but I am excited I finally found an entry worthy of searching out. Good stuff, bookmarked cause I’ve a feeling several posts on here will benefit other questions I have, faster then looking up on yahoo.

  67. A lot of of what you mention happens to be supprisingly appropriate and it makes me wonder the reason why I hadn’t looked at this in this light before. Your piece really did turn the light on for me personally as far as this specific subject goes. But at this time there is just one issue I am not necessarily too comfortable with and while I try to reconcile that with the actual core idea of your position, permit me observe exactly what all the rest of your visitors have to say.Nicely done.

    • How very enjoyable it is to read an intelligent comment, and well worded to boot. Hopefully you will succeed in reconciling the issue that gives discomfort. Alas poetry should in the end leave one thinking long enough to reach ones personal fit to the picture I paint with the words I use. If the poem is to have any worth that is. At least that is my take and purpose to write the things I do. Thank you for taking the time to write. JJF

  68. Merely want to remark, that the website design and style is perfect, and the content material is rattling great. “Good judgment comes from experience, and experience comes from bad judgment.” by Barry LePatner.

  69. I like the helpful info you provide in your articles. I’ll bookmark your weblog and check again here frequently. I am quite certain I will learn lots of new stuff right here! Good luck for the next!

  70. Pretty great post. I just stumbled upon your weblog and wanted to mention that I’ve really enjoyed browsing your blog posts. In any case I will be subscribing on your feed and I’m hoping you write again soon!

    • I appreciate you’re comment and your interest. As to my continued writing, no problem as you ought notice that since “The Last Word”, and counting today’s I have written and posted 34 new poems. Enjoy and thank you for your comment. JJF

  71. Hello there, just became alert to your blog through Google, and found that it’s truly informative. I’ll appreciate if you continue this in future. A lot of people will benefit from your writing. Cheers!

  72. I genuinely liked reading through your post! You have a lot of quality material. I might advise you to come up with blog posts even more often. By doing this, having this kind of a worthy website I think you will probably rank higher in the search engines.

    • Thank you for your support and compliment, but I’m running as fast as I can… A reminder that this is creating poetic subject matter, ergo poetry and not production line lolly-pops or flooding the internet web sites with cheap publicity. No reflection on your suggestion, just setting the record straight. Thanks again for sharing. JJF

    • If you happen to be referring to a publicity/advertising comment that was pushing the likes of Zune benefits, my spam filter is definitely not broken. Nor is my tolerance for cheap publicity, as I hit Mark as Spam and or Trash all these kind of comments. Otherwise I reply and or approve all comments I receive that strictly relate to the subjects of my blog, which is poetry as the title of my blog ‘Poetry on a canapé’ clearly indicates.

      This message for example I would not approve or post nor would I normally reply to as it does not comment on a poetry post of my blog. Thank you. Jean-Jacques Fournier

  73. A blog can never be questioned because you are free to write about anything you want but I highly and positively question the blogger for posting this kind of blog. I am really impressed and amazed what a kind of knowledge the blogger has. The passion of blogging in this website shows a lot what kind of personality has the blogger. Congrats for a job well done. I salute your article content!

    • For the record, my passion is for writing poetry that can deliver a message on all subjects. One that talks of life directly or abstractly, seriously or humorously, cuttingly or emotionally and so on. The blogging, or as I prefer, posting on the net, is not for passion but rather because it just happens to be the best way presently to share the fruits of my labours, the poetry, with many and expediently. There you have it. I thank you for your high praise.It is very much appreciated. JJF

  74. I would suggest that somebody essentially made a serious articles of this. This is the very first time I frequented your web page and thus far, am surprised with this particularly incredible publication. Fantastic job!

      • Not too often I can’t find the words, otherwise the writing that keeps me alive would be no more. However to respond to such accolades requires words of acceptance for achievements far more worthy than my humble poem of “The Face” for the claim you make and the praise you offer. In any event I thank you kindly for your thoughts, appreciation and support. I wish you well, and a happy life. JJF

  75. I’m very pleased to discover this great site. I wanted to thank you for a wonderful read!!
    I definitely appreciated every part of it and have you bookmarked your website.

  76. Your mode of explaining all in this post is genuinely pleasant, every one will
    be able to understand it without difficulty. Thanks a lot.
