OSI #128 – Connoisseur

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.

  1. well said Leo…:)we do need connoisseur to help us with our aspirations to become famed authors…:)this is a unique way of doing the prompt! you really know how to make your posts interesting without sacrificing the essence of it!i am contemplating of using Discus too but i dunno how to go about it, i tried this morning and my blog comments were lost so i reverted to the old…:P we're u able to load comments from old posts since u used discus???

  2. thanks Amity, glad u liked my way of doing the prompt.sure.. if it meant I'd lose old comments, I'd not even put it here in the first place! 🙂 I liked the Disqus, coz it means I can reply to each of my readers separately. Thanks to Rumz, who put me on to it 😉 check in Tools @ Disqus Amity. there is facility for importing your blogs comments.. and also keeping Disqus in sync with blogger too, so u wont lose what u get in Disqus.I haven't lost any old comment, not even for the posts of 2008 even.

  3. Authors do have to be vary of the 'connoisseur critic' as they could tear you to shreds but their valuable comments are always worth considering. Nice poem!! 🙂

  4. If constructive, the words of a connoisseur can make us better. Even if we don't always agree! I like your take on the prompt. Its a dilema we all face. 🙂

  5. Unique and deep. Experts comments are to be respected so that we learn and improve. However theirs is also just an opinion, a point of view, and should not be allowed to break your heart.

  6. Yes Rob, a dilemma we all face! 🙂 😀 Connoisseur's words must be taken in a right sense, then we can become better.

  7. Yes, true what u say Harshad sir, we should take it in a right sense..! After all, they are pointing our mistake and not trying to bring us down..! 🙂

  8. Now, if that connoisseur critic would just learn 'constructive criticism' there would be less heartbread and ill feelings. 🙂 I liked this, Leo. It reminds me of a lady who claimed her gift from God was criticism…

  9. haha 😀 true true.. all connoisseur critics don't learn that constructive criticism do they? :)glad u liked it Jim 🙂 was wondering where u were all day.. welcome! 😉

  10. Excellent interpretation and works on lots of levels. It’s amazing that a “connisseur” wields so much power to raise up and destroy all usually based on their own opinions.
