have you ever
stopped

to think about
why

we all think that
white

snow is much more
gorgeous

than dirt covered
brown


------
to that cool mountain air on an appalachian trail, oooooh life is better there - yonder mountain string band

Your comment should be deleted, man. There's no call for that crap.

Viper9 is right
Saw this and meant to come back. Thanks for reminding me. This comment is deplorable.

re: member
Robert, everyone wanted comment validation off so naturally some BS will have to be deleted. We get this on the forums on a regular basis. It's the price of having an open forum. It's been deleted, as it should be. We can't have it both ways. We'll get some bad comments now and then, luckily it takes but the flick of the wrist for me to delete them. If anyone spots one out of line my email address is editor@lit.org - use it! I'll take care of bidness ;)

Understood. I actually prefer this to comment validation. We must all be vigilant! haha. Hopefully it won't be necessary 95% of the time.

dirty,dirty,dirty
I guess I must have missed out on something,dang it all. I prefer brown dirt bein' a farmer and all. Snow messes with my roomatiz.

Bobby, the voices will be back, give it some time. I'm serious. Give it some time.

I really like the overtones of this poem. I like this poem.

good clean dirt
Sorry, in all the upheaval, failed to comment on YOUR poem. I like it!

Charlie, Hope you are right.

thank you
thank you williamhill, for finally having something to say about my poem.

( Posted by: dmbrrphish7 [Member] On: February 19, 2005 )

lol
Good point!

Your poem is an interesting reflection on something we tend to take for granted. Not everyone thinks that dirt is ugly, of course, but most seem to, for whatever reason. Surely there are psychological reasons, but it's clearly a cultural or sociological answer you're after.

What you've managed to do in very few words, is point in a direction, unmask an assumption, and provide ample food for thought. And that's worth far more than the missing hyphen in line nine.

Looking forward to more.
