Yes, a looker. Poets always are.

Rigor, but not exactly mortis (yet), hahahah.
I gotta get to a pile of corrections, and a couple of hours of writing. At least the weather is miserable, will be ok with a big pot of tea and music on. (with Elmo singing faintly in the distance, heheh..It's still Elmo, Nil, but not Dora no more, fortunately).

Yes they are.
They capture you with their thoughts and you wish to understand their very essence through their words. For a moment, measured in a heart-beat, they hope you will.
Does the reader touch the poet ?

Re: Word of Today

Does the reader touch the poet.. I think readers gotta be as much of poets as those who wrote the piece. They recreate. We all do. And well. Without receptive interpretation there's no meaning. Echo needs ears to be heard and resonate.

Today's Special is common good. And our inability to define it.

Yep. Although maybe it should have been my word yesterday since today was mostly counting and results.

Vote is a good word. Shows people's interest. Hope they recognize long term consequences of their choice.

Informed. And opinionated.

From your post of yesterday, maybe "Tonsorial" might be apt. (Though that'd be the word of yesterday, so perhaps I should just shut up...)
