Pitching Woo


Where there is love, there is life.

Mahatma Ghandi

You can find love
But not capture love
If you define love
You confine love

The only way
is to live love


Etheree: Love Sequel

I
Welcome
All those who
Like to pitch woo
This week is for you
If you are not inclined
Then pay this website no mind
Spend your time wherever you find
What you consider as love’s equal

I’m guessing some kind of a love sequel

(though sequels have nothing on the original)


lovingly, the pregnant night
gives birth each dawn
to a glorious new day


Weekly Theme:
Love

      1. I like that, reminds me of Eric Morecombe saying that he was playing the right notes, but not necessarily in the right order!

      1. Ach, I dunno Mr Mouse…

        I know you were conflicted a little with the concept of ‘hate’ but your poetry last week was a triumph for me – and many others besides!! πŸ†

        I’m only relieved to have got my crown of thorns back in the post yesterday! πŸ˜‰

        Sure your true self will shine through your loving words even more this week!! πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ–€

      2. Thank you. Nice of you to say. I had to force it a little last week.

        I’ve noticed your darkness has returned, mostly with the reappearance of archive posts.
        Looking at the old and new side by side, I can see a distinct change for the better. By which I mean happier/lighter.

        I write a few things I was happy with for this week, but its hard to be confident when you write on love.

        Thank you for the belief πŸ˜‰πŸ˜ŠπŸ’š

      3. Ah, my belief in you will never waver my friend. I’m glad you stuck with WP as you (and your blog) continue to go from strength to strength! πŸ‘

        Yes, it’s been an interesting delve into my early ramblings so far.
        I can definitely see some changes too – mostly for the good.

        It’s quite odd – but also quite a comfort – to read things and, although I still recognise that feeling, know that it’s a hell of a lot less intense nowadays.

        Perhaps there could be hope for this dark heart yet πŸ–€πŸ–€

      4. And I in yours, little charmer.
        I’ve had a few solid months now. Honestly im expecting a downward trend any day now.
        Seems the pessimist doesn’t go away with the other noise.

        It is clearly noticeable. I guess all those people who say writing is a great form of therapy may have been right πŸ€”

        Let’s see if you start signing off with a lighter coloured heart πŸ˜‰πŸ’š

      5. You sell yourself short my friend – your readers are here to stay…

        … As I fear is the black heart. It’s my trademark now – even if it’s not truly accurate nowadays πŸ˜‰πŸ‘πŸ–€πŸ–€

      6. I think that is the change, more are sticking around instead of disappearing after a month or so.

        Still, not a bad trademark to have. Imagine having to sign with any number of ridiculous emojis

    1. Thank you, Frank. Glad you enjoyed it. I just woke up and I’ll be at work in half an hour. Won’t be back on wp until later today. I’ll definately do it then πŸ‘

  1. I learn something every day – hadn’t heard the phrase “pitching woo” until today. I even had to look it up – google is wonderful but not as wonderful as the etheree!

    1. I think I picked up pitching woo as a child from Mr Burns on the Simpsons πŸ˜‚ who says you can’t learn from cartoons.
      I would be lost without Google.
      This was my first etheree! I’m so happy to hear you enjoyed it πŸ˜ŠπŸ’š

      1. I’ve only read Tourmaline by him, which is where that quote comes from – it had a J. G. Ballard sort of feel to it, which I like. “Day of Creation” Ballard, not “Empire of The Sun”.

  2. Sigh…. πŸ’šπŸ’™πŸ’—πŸ’™πŸ’š wow
    So beautiful. Love is in the air. You can feel it but not catch it. First one is just too delicious. Couldn’t think of other adjective!

  3. Thank you for linking your beautiful poetry to Frank’s #Writer’s Quotes Wednesday Writing Challenge. I particularly loved the first poem for the truths in it – find but not capture, define – confine. Very elegant. Thanks. I hope you will join me each Wednesday with different topics for the quotes and responses.

    1. Thank you. Very kind of you to say.
      I didn’t realise it was a writing challenge 🀣
      Frank asked me to add a link to his page, I happily replied.
      Let’s see what future Wednesdays will hold.
