Mutha’s Only Half A Word (Poetry) - 7/13/2010 2:46:59 AM
Very good work, Roger.
Mutha’s Only Half A Word (Poetry) - 6/29/2010 6:57:33 AM
Yes you are at home LOL! Love the beat sound of this poem and the humor Roger.
Mutha’s Only Half A Word (Poetry) - 6/29/2010 3:08:49 AM
Now, there's a poet that gives literary graffiti the sound of street bards chanting "bad boy, bad boy, whannagonnado, when they come for you" and as another Mutha out here, I bow to you in admiration. (not bending over!!!)
Mutha’s Only Half A Word (Poetry) - 6/28/2010 3:01:05 PM
Aging is right...LOL & now that I have put away my Funk & Wagnalls, I can get back to reading the rest of your poetry you old funky fart....ed ;-)
Monster (Poetry) - 6/25/2010 3:33:16 AM
Very well written, Roger
Monster (Poetry) - 6/24/2010 9:58:01 PM
Yes, I have had lots of these days, lol. Good write.
Monster (Poetry) - 6/23/2010 10:17:18 AM
Dark with a tiny silver lining of hope!!
Monster (Poetry) - 6/23/2010 3:43:00 AM
Oh yes!...but that one ain't a scary one, just a pathetic furry grimacing wannabe that ain't worth to walk in my darkest dungeons...
Monster (Poetry) - 6/22/2010 7:04:04 PM
I have one of those days everyday...LOL ed
Monster (Poetry) - 6/22/2010 4:59:33 PM
Wow, this is powerful Roger! The last line ties it all together perfectly ~
In My Dreams (Poetry) - 6/15/2010 7:24:00 AM
I love everything about your poem Roger, the tenderness and even the unusual form.
In My Dreams (Poetry) - 6/15/2010 2:15:47 AM
Now, written as a poetic spearhead in paper and yet carrying a message for her that we were given a peek of, hope and reassurance wrapped with a veil of tenderness...
In My Dreams (Poetry) - 6/14/2010 5:35:29 PM
Roger, I could feel your endearing love in this poem..To say make your dreams a reality would be stepping over the boundaries, but I love to step lightly into no man's land..lol
You really need to go get her, this is such a lover's profession, I adore your poem...
I love the format a lot!
Much peace, love and light,
In My Dreams (Poetry) - 6/14/2010 5:35:22 PM
The sweetness of dreams, leaving inhibitions behind to share and love at will til early morning light. Then to repeat it over and over with love growing just a bit more every time. There is such delicate magic in your pen...
Be always safe,
In My Dreams (Poetry) - 6/14/2010 4:47:53 PM
This is such a gorgeous tribute and poem ~ I'm insane about it!
In My Dreams (Poetry) - 6/14/2010 4:26:48 PM
Considering you are the consummate insane person, I would think you didn't have any dreams and your reality IS your dreams...ed
In My Dreams (Poetry) - 6/14/2010 4:01:05 PM
Absolutely perfect! I love everything about it.
Brain Drain Pain (Poetry) - 6/13/2010 12:56:26 PM
Thank you for sharing your wit and humor, Roger. Love and peace to you,
Brain Drain Pain (Poetry) - 6/9/2010 7:47:30 PM
At Least your brain is still working that's a plus!!! Humorous but true..
Much peace, love and light,
Brain Drain Pain (Poetry) - 6/9/2010 6:10:04 PM
It seems it would provide me with the same long hours of amusement, wish I could think that way...;-) Ed

Brain Drain Pain (Poetry) - 6/9/2010 12:05:42 PM
My, my! I applaud the depths to which your confusion takes you, even when you begin at the surface. As long as poetry emerges, you're okay in my book. (smile)
Brain Drain Pain (Poetry) - 6/9/2010 11:38:32 AM
Hahahaha.....sorry this got me laffin!!
My brain get confused too!!
Dark Lady (Poetry) - 6/5/2010 1:56:23 PM
Roger, a deeply dark but moving poem...She deserves a chance to be a "good" mother. I feel that she is doing a good job with the baby, and nothing else said children are blessings and deserve the maternal influence with them no matter what...I love the way you wrote this, it tells all..
Much peace, love and light,
Dark Lady (Poetry) - 6/5/2010 11:35:54 AM
This is chilling! Wonderful poem
Dark Lady (Poetry) - 6/5/2010 10:02:20 AM
I'm sad . . . and a little frightened by the mixture of tender beauty and unearthly aversion. The question is whether this vision was a passing one that has haunted you for years (the kid is walking by now) or someone near and dear to you (and you know for sure the kid is walking by now) and I will have put my foot in my mouth. (smile) The point is, though, that you evoked a serious response, Mr. Poet.
Dark Lady (Poetry) - 6/5/2010 6:10:56 AM
This kids GOT to be yours...poor kid...;-) Ed
Opera/Opus (Poetry) - 6/3/2010 12:56:44 PM
I love this! Tragic villain. lovable thief. Much ambiguosity in this. I have to ask myself if those defense mechanisms aren't just about to be replaced with cleansing self evaluation instead.
Opera/Opus (Poetry) - 6/3/2010 5:41:10 AM
The bass is the best voice in the whole opera! More commanding, more sensual than all the others.
Opera/Opus (Poetry) - 6/3/2010 3:47:32 AM
Excellent layout, Roger
Opera/Opus (Poetry) - 6/2/2010 3:07:13 PM
Ah the Dark Prince does riseth unto the fold...now what the hell does that mean...? And how many shows can you do in a day... only one? So what good are ya anyway...;-) Ed
Opera/Opus (Poetry) - 6/2/2010 2:38:01 PM
Bravo Rogerto (lol)!
This is as Christine says, deserving of a standing ovation, however, I would have to add, filled with an actor/singer's perspective of course to me with a pagan artsy flair!
Much peace, love, and light,
Good to read you again, you need to write more!!!!
Opera/Opus (Poetry) - 6/2/2010 12:57:27 PM
Look, any guy singing opera resonates in my key. Yes, tenors, but also bassi profundo!
Your poem is deserving of a standing Ovation,
and many repeat reads.
Opera/Opus (Poetry) - 6/2/2010 12:51:01 PM
Ah, but when the Basso Profundo is on stage, he dominates the attention of the feminine heart. Does it matter that she is required by custom to hide her feverish interest in favor of the insipid notes of the Tenor. (smile)
My State of Mind Has Seceded (Poetry) - 5/31/2010 3:56:52 PM
Roger if your mind runs into mine please send it home!!
My State of Mind Has Seceded (Poetry) - 5/29/2010 10:19:30 AM
You made me smile.
My State of Mind Has Seceded (Poetry) - 5/28/2010 10:56:42 AM
Gosh, if you are this amusing out-of-your-mind, maybe you
should consider staying as you are. Especially as one of
your most cherished goals is to set a bad example. [Must have
known my Mother. Stole the idea from her?]
I got a big kick out to this. Another reason to stay nuts is that
your writing might suffer if you go the other route. Personally, I
like it here at the Bin. 'Fact, I think we should organize a Den Bin. Only wackos allowed!! (Remind me to find the certificate that
shrink gave me.)
My State of Mind Has Seceded (Poetry) - 5/28/2010 4:51:08 AM
Now, this the first time that I have acquainted my self with a pure literary ghost author...like one of those roaming my dungeon and reciting verses for the shadows amusement. But I appreciate your "presence of mind" (LOL) (that last one I couldn't help!)
My State of Mind Has Seceded (Poetry) - 5/27/2010 7:50:47 PM
Seceded Um, well I believe there needs to be a reunion! I certainly hope that your state of mind returns with much to be grateful for. I know you can be quite charming when you want to...Your state of mind deems qualified to be missing your mind so you will not have to miss it after all...
Nice one Roger!
Peace, love and light,
My State of Mind Has Seceded (Poetry) - 5/27/2010 6:14:17 PM
Very amusing! I don't miss mine too much...gone years ago.
My State of Mind Has Seceded (Poetry) - 5/27/2010 5:23:58 PM
Such a sad tome to explain your missing state of mind. My sympathy.
My State of Mind Has Seceded (Poetry) - 5/27/2010 4:12:48 PM
This is well beyond clever, Roger, this makes a genuine impact.
My State of Mind Has Seceded (Poetry) - 5/27/2010 2:11:20 PM
Still using your mind the least, especially here within...;-) Ed
The Imprudent Gardener (Poetry) - 5/20/2010 6:27:18 PM
Love the humor in this poem and the pic! So good to read you again!
Hope you stay awhile;-) ET
The Imprudent Gardener (Poetry) - 5/20/2010 5:24:49 AM
Timing is everything, in life, in gardens. Well penned Roger.
The Imprudent Gardener (Poetry) - 5/20/2010 1:05:54 AM
Very good, Roger !
The Imprudent Gardener (Poetry) - 5/19/2010 1:31:26 AM
Now...if you could keep your green fingers out my cactus pot...(LOL)
The Imprudent Gardener (Poetry) - 5/18/2010 6:54:15 PM
Its been a cool May so far...glad I don't try to grow anything as I found I can only grow grass, the green stuff in the yard, not that "other" stuff, as it grows on its own & doesn't need a green thumb as my thumb is only black...ed
At Children's Lake (Poetry) - 5/18/2010 5:32:39 PM
I'm so impressed with this comparison, and of course, it's true. Who would believe the struggle involved in a simple poem? Cross-outs, add-ins, count the rhythm, change the words to come up to par...
There is a website for writers called The Odd Duck Society. How interesting that you should choose ducks, too.
Quacking and churning,
The Imprudent Gardener (Poetry) - 5/18/2010 5:27:15 PM
A nice poem...I can't blame you for being anxious.
The Imprudent Gardener (Poetry) - 5/18/2010 5:05:17 PM
You can water my garden anytime Roger! lol
I love this, you haven't posted in so long, I have missed reading your golden words.
Good to see you back. Let me know when you are back in Middletown, we can go for coffee at Klekolo's!
Peace, love, and light,
The Imprudent Gardener (Poetry) - 5/18/2010 4:51:45 PM
I really like this one, I am a gardener in training. I have a little garden on my sun porch, my neighbor's all seem to have success, and I have lived here the longest.
I Need A Star (Poetry) - 5/18/2010 2:12:27 PM
Being of advanced years myself, your poems filled with longing resonate with me. Reading this one I had a strong image of crocheting -- of reaching to pick up a thread and pulling it through to make a stitch, reaching for the next and pulling to make another, and on and on until a pattern is created. You do have a way with words and a knack for creating a beautiful structure.
The Imprudent Gardener (Poetry) - 5/18/2010 2:00:28 PM
Too obvious? Who would ever accuse you of subtlety? (smile)
I like this, not least because of its pacing. And, of course, I kept my mind on the geraniums . . . most of the time. Now I'm going to go and read more of your poems.
At Children's Lake (Poetry) - 3/5/2010 4:06:33 AM
A man sitting on a bench is not a shadow being quiet if the eyes looking around are of the searching kind, if not, the perception of the man will be another blurred and forgettable detail of an uninteresting whole.
Your poem provoke the intellect to answer the challenge!
At Children's Lake (Poetry) - 2/2/2010 10:34:05 AM
IT NEVER CEASES TO AMAZE ME HOW NATURE INSPIRES US SO BEAUTIFULLY. EACH AND EVERY DAY...WE ALL DO WHAT WE CAN TO KEEP FROM SINKING. BUT I HAVE FOUND THAT NO MATTER HOW HARD I TRY...I ALWAYS NEED A LITTLE HELP FROM MY 'FRIEND'...'HE' ALWAYS KEEPS ME AFLOAT. THIS IS A GREAT WRITE, THANKS FOR SHARING AND GOD BLESS.
LOVE, JOYCE * HIS INSPIRATIONS
At Children's Lake (Poetry) - 1/26/2010 6:09:17 PM
But you do it with style! I enjoyed your bio page remarks and 'placid' did not come to mind...flamboyant perhaps...
You made me smile.
4 Woodland Haiku's (Poetry) - 11/24/2009 11:27:25 AM
I love haiku particularly when they are associated with nature. Thanks for sharing, Roger. Love and peace,
At Children's Lake (Poetry) - 11/6/2009 9:44:27 PM
Love the descriptions in this one.
At Children's Lake (Poetry) - 11/1/2009 11:02:39 AM
So relaxing to sit by a pond watching ducks circle and bob. Even more satisfying to read a poem that looks -- and works -- beneath the surface. Takes a great poet to pull it off. You are so right, Roger. Only looks like floating! Easier it looks, the more vigorous the paddlin'. Good ON ya !! xOx 'Pea' xOx -- PS: Thought of working in "ducky.":)
At Children's Lake (Poetry) - 10/14/2009 3:16:12 PM
I know the "tune" that goes with that poem, Roger. (smile)
At Children's Lake (Poetry) - 9/12/2009 4:03:29 AM
I can relate, alot of us are just one breath away from sinking. I've always felt that poets bare their soul in there writes, thats what "I" see as a poet writes. Exellent poetry, my friend.
Road To Nowhere (Poetry) - 8/24/2009 4:55:43 PM
Thanks for sharing your roads to nowhere. It is always fun to discover a new path to travel now and again.
At Children's Lake (Poetry) - 8/24/2009 3:42:44 PM
For like the water fowl
I labor mightily beneath
Just to keep from sinking
Meaningful verses, Roger; I can relate. Love and peace,
Road To Nowhere (Poetry) - 8/16/2009 6:11:35 AM
Very creative! Like the sense of searching.
Road To Nowhere (Poetry) - 7/1/2009 5:51:16 PM
This is great, Roger! Such a creative format. Potholes and all!
As for your travels and your eventual destination, seems we are
soul mates. Howdy, Neighbor! :) Pea (:

I like your brand of humor!
Road To Nowhere (Poetry) - 2/6/2009 2:29:43 PM
Wonderful creativity here. It's good to see someone having fun with words. Great work!
Road To Nowhere (Poetry) - 1/30/2009 11:16:17 AM
Very creative; a most interesting poem, Roger. Thanks for sharing. Love and peace to you,
Psychoactive (Poetry) - 11/22/2008 3:07:51 PM
Poetry is my drug of choice. When I was on meds for anxiety (2-3 years), I wrote nothing. My muse was flushed away. Enough of that nonsense for me. I am anxious but very creative. It works for me!
Road To Nowhere (Poetry) - 11/22/2008 3:02:46 PM
Love the eye poem parts and the overall impact of this poem. You truly have a gift. Keep sharing...
The Godzilla Coleus (Poetry) - 10/30/2008 3:21:33 PM
hahaha! Whimsical and witty,with a green thumb, too!;-)
A delight to read!
Road To Nowhere (Poetry) - 10/30/2008 3:07:17 PM
Roger, I never saw this on the boards! Glad to have a chane to read you! I enjoyed this very creative poem. I believe most of us trod that road to nowhere,much of the time,unawhere of it;-)
Road To Nowhere (Poetry) - 10/21/2008 4:58:46 PM
Me too, heading nowhere fast...ed
Road To Nowhere (Poetry) - 10/21/2008 3:21:26 PM
You have a road to heaven too. You just have to take it. Maybe now you think you have nowhere, but God will take care of you if you only believe on his son. Hoping you do that.
The Godzilla Coleus (Poetry) - 9/26/2008 11:54:58 AM
Thank you for sharing your wit and humor (and your green thumb philosophy), Roger. Love and peace,
The Godzilla Coleus (Poetry) - 9/22/2008 7:39:47 PM
Well you dd better than I would, as I have a black thumb, I can't grow grass in my yard...(regular grass, not the smokeable kind)...ed
The Godzilla Coleus (Poetry) - 9/22/2008 3:19:32 PM
Here, when someone is amazing you hear things like, "That boy is a sight!" Roger I'd say, "You are a sight!" Your poetry is too.
AJourney Ending (Poetry) - 9/18/2008 12:02:33 PM
Sounds like a shady haven, an asylum from from the insane world! A poet's paradise!
Please write more of these Roger!
Hibiscus (Poetry) - 8/28/2008 11:46:27 AM
Free flowing flowery poem. Can smell that hibiscus right now. Love flowers of all kinds. The photo is great too.
4 Woodland Haiku's (Poetry) - 8/27/2008 2:02:50 AM
Squirrels I love to see put peanuts in ground for winter, fireflies I love to watch on hot july summer nights, impatience I love the many colors and they do spread out just fine, and the trees of fall with their many splendid colors cannot be beat. These 4 nature Haiku's are great**********
Hibiscus (Poetry) - 8/26/2008 4:15:31 PM
I am enjoying your masterful poetry! We have red and black hibiscus in the yard. So showy!
I Need A Star (Poetry) - 8/23/2008 9:23:28 AM
I like your minimalism here and in the other poems! Keep this coming!
4 Woodland Haiku's (Poetry) - 8/23/2008 9:20:55 AM
Very fresh poetry! I loved it!
4 Woodland Haiku's (Poetry) - 8/22/2008 2:24:28 PM
Splendid Haiku Roger! I love nature ku best, especially when done by one with your expertise!Thanks for sharing!
4 Woodland Haiku's (Poetry) - 8/18/2008 11:25:01 PM
Not a big fan of Haiku in general but for some reason I loved #3...an immersive pastiche of sight and sound.
Would love to hear more about your 'cottage' adventures. Running out of coffee, or stepping in moose shit...do tell more ;)
I Need A Star (Poetry) - 8/15/2008 1:57:10 PM
It sounds like something I could use as well, Roger. Thank you for sharing this offering. Love and peace,
In My Youth (Poetry) - 8/15/2008 1:56:01 PM
Don't we all at some point or other? You've stirred memories, Roger. Well done. Love and peace to you,
In My Youth (Poetry) - 6/21/2008 7:00:19 AM
You don't just write with soul and guts, you choreograph. I usually find that 3 reads is minimum in the first sitting... printing for further absorption generally follows. This theme may be universal; the written 'utterances' are entirely yours.
(It's a long way from Catholic school, isn't it?)
In My Youth (Poetry) - 8/10/2007 6:24:50 AM
Youth, where did it go? I love this one, feelings of the familiarities. You say it well.
In My Youth (Poetry) - 8/8/2007 11:58:19 AM
Yip.....those where the days....good to remember!!

Surprised you can still remember your youth...;) e
In My Youth (Poetry) - 8/7/2007 6:25:32 PM
You bring back memories. As a child one cannot wait to grow up. Grown up we spend the rest of our lives trying to find that child. Well written piece.......

May your star wishes come true Roger. Lovely poem, heart touching.

"A bit of the tawsry is taste-full". What more needs to be said?
Hibiscus (Poetry) - 8/24/2005 6:13:33 PM
Roger, HIBISCUS is fantastic. It does the can-can like a stunning Vegas show girl!
Tawdry can be quite fun!
Ashes (Poetry) - 8/20/2005 9:03:32 AM
The styling of this is an absolute masterpiece! Duke
Liar (Poetry) - 8/20/2005 8:59:29 AM

Hibiscus (Poetry) - 8/15/2005 10:40:31 AM
Ah, loved this! Excellent!
Hibiscus (Poetry) - 8/13/2005 7:21:11 PM
Very nice - spare verbage can say a lot...loved the comments on your bio page!
Hibiscus (Poetry) - 8/12/2005 10:03:46 AM
This is fabulous I just planted peppers this morning in the Arizona morning light. Now I want to go out and stare at the dirt and dream of what will be.
Hibiscus (Poetry) - 8/10/2005 9:33:22 PM
Awesome capture of sensuality...the picture and your poem!
Name It (Poetry) - 8/10/2005 6:27:43 AM
Indeed. Some experiences refuse to give themselves to words.
Hibiscus (Poetry) - 8/8/2005 1:17:37 PM
So your the one that planted me! :-) Wonderful write.
Hibiscus (Poetry) - 8/8/2005 10:35:47 AM
"Action/Thriller" is it? Mmmm Hmmm... of course, the poet is, indeed, everywhere! in this completely original, creative (dare I say) ditty.
Compact quartets that burst and bloom... even the flowers were giggling. To say I love this one would be a gross understatement... so, rather than go for other expressions I'll just say it louder: I LOVE THIS ONE, ROGER!!! (grin) You are, beyond most, a master metaphor-er. katy xoxox

Down here in Baptist land tawdry is normal. Nice tribute to a beautiful, though short lived, flower.
Hibiscus (Poetry) - 8/7/2005 1:13:31 PM
Excellent write about a beautiful plant...
Hibiscus (Poetry) - 8/7/2005 9:23:02 AM
Well! I dare say the petunias and the wild onion, never mind poor little daisy, are just agast at the tart you have introduced in their garden. Of course, the elephant ears and the cacti are already sharpening their best seducing lines.
Hibiscus (Poetry) - 8/7/2005 8:29:16 AM
I love hibiscus and the way you crafted this poem matches
its beauty! Wonderfully written, Roger!;-)
Hibiscus (Poetry) - 8/7/2005 8:05:07 AM
I think I know how this hibiscus must feel....like I did when I joined AD...the outcast from South Africa!!
Hibiscus (Poetry) - 8/7/2005 8:04:26 AM
"as in life,
a bit of the tawdry
This I will have to remember, you are a man just chock full of little tidbits of info aren't you...;) Ed
Hibiscus (Poetry) - 8/7/2005 6:32:46 AM
EXCELLENT write. A garden won't be a garden without something wild in it. Otherwsie the garden would be so boring. Great idea to plant the Hibiscus to bright up your garden.

An excellent ode to the Hibiscus, Roger, one of my favorite "flashy" flowers.
Liar (Poetry) - 8/3/2005 6:57:20 AM
an interesting, skillful write, Roger. for those tuned-in, the echo of a liar's song would be most distinctive...
Liar (Poetry) - 8/1/2005 7:39:59 AM
Being a liar, I understand. I imagine that's not good. If I sang to anyone it would be enough to drive them away.
Liar (Poetry) - 7/31/2005 8:40:06 AM
One was is only a liar....and will forever be a liar!!
Very thought provoking!!
Liar (Poetry) - 7/31/2005 7:01:59 AM
Liar (Poetry) - 7/31/2005 5:56:24 AM
so its best to refrain from the song that is sung with no melody for its refrain will only leave one sounding empty ...
i like the unique impact of this poem, Roger ...
Liar (Poetry) - 7/30/2005 8:52:49 PM
I read this slowly 3 times, Roger. Each read created a fully developed scenario, entirely different from the last, until I reached that last line, the chilling impact.
The simple language suggests that it is straightforward, literal. Why, then, did the word "enigma" pop into each of those scenarios? The language, I think, is a buffer for what is hidden behind the words... yet, it feels like that expression "hiding in plain sight."
It's inside... but I can't seem to say it. katy xox
Liar (Poetry) - 7/30/2005 8:14:13 PM
Nice poetry, Roger
Liar (Poetry) - 7/30/2005 7:24:37 PM
Awesome write, Roger. What we won't do to share a few moments of companionship with someone we have feelings for. We have a hidden agenda, to be sure, though we hope we are not overly transparent.
Liar (Poetry) - 7/30/2005 7:20:45 PM
The graphic matches the words to a T!;-)
Is it wrong to listen to the song of one
who is only a liar? Should I try;-)...
Cry #23 (Poetry) - 7/30/2005 6:04:58 PM
But then you keep writing. As you should, Roger. End of day, it's for you.
The Music Swings - I Don't (Poetry) - 7/25/2005 7:00:33 PM
Dancing to your own tune, Roger... brava.
Ashes (Poetry) - 7/24/2005 9:11:28 AM
Intense, poignant write. I enjoy reading your work and will read more. Thanks for sharing.

Laffin too hard to review--oh, this is rich--cant' pin down my favorite line, so I'll just love 'em all--wonderfully penned, bitter humor, perhaps?
(((HUGS))) and love, Karl.a :) heeheehee--you ROCK!!!!
Feral Song (Poetry) - 7/20/2005 1:13:18 PM
Somehow I missed this one--unrestrained joy in this; howl on, primal man!
(((HUGS))) and love, Karla. :)
Ashes (Poetry) - 7/19/2005 2:59:46 PM
Wow. That was really depressing. BUT- I like your writing style. Creative. I'm sorry about the loss of your daughter's pet. I'm seventeen years old, and that poem made me think that maybe MY daddy thinks that way.. I'm gonna call him and tell him I love him. Hah..
Ashes (Poetry) - 7/19/2005 11:07:13 AM
Oh, this was so very lovely, a wonderful tribute to a loving pet,
Ashes (Poetry) - 7/19/2005 7:18:05 AM
What a gold ribbon tribute you've given Ashes! Wonderfully expressed!
Ashes (Poetry) - 7/17/2005 8:11:26 AM
Ashes (Poetry) - 7/16/2005 11:05:20 AM
A heartfelt tribute well shared. Thank you, Roger. Love and peace to you. Regis
Ashes (Poetry) - 7/15/2005 7:40:56 PM
wonderful tribute to your daughters cat. Animals give of themselves freely. i am sure your daughter will love this one!
Beauty And The Beast (Poetry) - 7/15/2005 7:37:27 AM
If she's proper, she's unattainable for me.
Ashes (Poetry) - 7/15/2005 7:34:37 AM
Sorry to hear about her loss. Pets offer a lot more than many humans, self included.
Ashes (Poetry) - 7/12/2005 7:09:49 PM
Wiser than we know, of greater heart than we sometimes appreciate...
Ashes (Poetry) - 7/12/2005 4:37:31 AM
Truly sorry to hear about this family loss, Roger; Ashes sounds like quite a feline and may he live on in your hearts and souls forever.
Ashes (Poetry) - 7/12/2005 4:31:11 AM
beautifully expressed, roger, though the last line is a bit over the top!
Ashes (Poetry) - 7/11/2005 10:35:08 PM
family are those who comfort and assure that love is felt within ...
a most moving tribute ...
Ashes (Poetry) - 7/11/2005 9:32:38 PM
anyone with a pet (even dog people like me) will be touched by this. my pitbull, napolean, died some years ago, but i still feel the sting of it every so often. and that's when i hear a song playing for him, a triumphant funeral march, and i stand up, and salute him, my little brother.
Ashes (Poetry) - 7/11/2005 6:59:56 PM
ASHES is a very touching and eloquent tribute to a special family member.
Ashes (Poetry) - 7/11/2005 5:44:39 PM
"It's all about family." You told me that long ago. Ashes is family. Your poem is evidence of your great heart and your deep love for your daughter and for the unforgetable Ashes. katy xox
Ashes (Poetry) - 7/11/2005 3:29:54 PM
Awwwwwwwwwwwwww...this is heartbreaking! You did the best you could. Never forget that.
(((((HUGS))))) and love, Karla. :(
Ashes (Poetry) - 7/11/2005 2:40:22 PM
I love animals . . . very much, but that is one hell of a statement, that the feline pet gave your daughter more than you could, or did.
Ashes (Poetry) - 7/11/2005 2:13:12 PM
wonderful tribute but i doubt she beat what you had to offer
Ashes (Poetry) - 7/11/2005 1:11:32 PM
You have brought out the natural character of a pet that can make itself more endearing to us than our human counterparts. Excellent depth of feeling in this one Roger!
Ashes (Poetry) - 7/11/2005 12:51:34 PM
Awwwww this is such a touching read...a pet can be so much more than just a friend!!
Beauty And The Beast (Poetry) - 7/10/2005 12:13:46 PM
You don't just write, Roger, you create, you cascade, you paint... there is design in your phrasings.
'fool...feel' I felt the self-effacing melancholy, yet there is no plea for sympathy, instead, this reaches down to where these feelings lurk in all of us. You expose yourself on your own terms... and this reader "gets" that. I love this poem. katy xox
Psychoactive (Poetry) - 7/10/2005 11:01:31 AM

Beauty And The Beast (Poetry) - 7/9/2005 10:55:37 AM
Spot on! Sparse words, carefully selected, pack quite the emotional wallop; well done!

Beauty And The Beast (Poetry) - 7/9/2005 10:04:50 AM
yep ... unanswered emotion can be somewhat frustrating ...
Beauty And The Beast (Poetry) - 7/9/2005 10:00:34 AM
You say a great deal with an economy of words, Roger. Well done. Thank you. Love and peace. Regis
