A great story David . I used to have a radio programme called New Horizons and each week I reciebed stories from all over Australia for broadcast . I feel this would be a great story for radio . Maybe you should submit this to some radio stations ?

I've brought a picnic (Poetry) - 4/21/2003 11:06:19 AM
Well ....I am thinking here!!!
I've brought a picnic (Poetry) - 4/21/2003 6:14:09 AM
This has the makings of a really good story, but it needs another draft, I think. Some of the tenses are a bit dodgy, and the end is just a little bit too obscure for a single reading. I'm assuming Jenny was kidnapped and killed, and the protag. died too - so they were reunited as ghosts. But who was the man in uniform? If the protag. recognised him it would help.

I've brought a picnic (Poetry) - 4/21/2003 5:07:51 AM
Well, I'm not sure what to think of this. I like stories with more dialogues.
I think this was too long, and that when he got to the station and didn't file a missing person's report serves no purpose to put that part in.
Too much emphasis on the pencil in the beginning. I knew the pencil was valuable to the main character, but cannot establish this closeness by just reading a few words about the pencil. Perhaps a little more on telling the audience how you came to have this pencil and how you had always treasured this would serve a better purpose that the readers can feel this closeness with you.
In the end you've found Jenny, but I'm sorry, perhaps it's just me, I could not understand what was going on at the end. She way lying there, but was she dead or alive?
Were you both dead or alive at the end?
I'm sorry I couldn't figure this out.
I like the last one you wrote, but I'm sorry I feel lost with this one.
.....Just MHO, you can just take it or leave it.

A very well written short story. Bill
Kuiyum (Poetry) - 4/19/2003 8:19:26 AM
This is soooo good a write! I like how you've written this, as Kate said - "You have brought the characters to life."
There is also this great message that if we have decided to do something nice for others, do it at the moment we decided to do it, don't wait until it's too late.
A very good and enjoyable piece. Thank you for sharing!
Sandie Angel :o)
Kuiyum (Poetry) - 4/19/2003 7:57:04 AM
Death comes so quickly and unexpectly. This piece shows that quite well. I liked your descriptions and how you brought your character to life. Wonderful write.
The Right Of Spring (Green) (Poetry) - 4/18/2003 8:54:51 AM
Gotta love jacaranda skies....;)
The Right Of Spring (Green) (Poetry) - 4/18/2003 8:39:00 AM
"... jacaranda sky... This image could spoil the verse once "jacaranda/Yacaranda" is a word of the "Tupi-Guarani Languages" and the following verse doesn´t explain or follow the prior image linking the thoughts. (It is the poet´s privilege anyway...)
The Right Of Spring (Green) is an enjoyable poem, profound and meaningful. I read and digested every line of it.
I Salute the Author of " The right Of Spring (Green).

I will call you after I find it.
The Right Of Spring (Green) (Poetry) - 4/18/2003 7:19:10 AM
With winter’s nip about to call
We feel the ripened chill of fall
With golden leaf and emerald too
Glistening bright with diamond dew.
What right has nature to take away
Such colours and replace with grey
What right? The rite of mother earth
To write or Wright her yearly birth.
The Right Of Spring (Green) (Poetry) - 4/18/2003 7:03:38 AM
your embracing imagery so soft and flowing in
beauty in your verses you creat a solace of paradise.
"Burnt by an endless jacaranda sky
Devoid of life giving rain, they will die
And so this precious creation of birth
The offspring of a mother back to earth.
Could it be there’s a perfect compromise?
Tell me where I can find this paradise. "
The Right Of Spring (Green) (Poetry) - 4/18/2003 6:48:23 AM
Six months away, I would suppose;
It's autumn here, for poem or prose
The apples ripen, grass goes green
But when are the rites of autumn seen?

Affect is a verb,
And so, my friend,
you affect your liver
When your elbow bends.
Effect is a noun,
And you should think
About the effect
On your liver when you drink.

Questions (Poetry) - 3/2/2003 6:45:14 AM
"affect" is a verb; "effect" is a noun.
New words are created everyday,
this affects some people's thinking,
but the effect is great.

Mimi (Poetry) - 1/20/2003 3:20:13 AM
My cat Freddy is now 13 and I understand what you are saying. He's also so spoiled by all of us. Won't eat anything else except the best. However, we took him to the vet recently for an operation, and now he's on special diet. He hates it and it breaks our hearts that he won't want to eat. Below is a poem I had written for him in 2001, he's was a big cat at the time I wrote this poem, but now he's slimming down because he won't eat what's good for him. Here's the poem:
By SandieAngel :o)
He walks quietly.
Jumps with precision.
Lands in front of my face.
Green eyes commanding.
My dark eyes hide.
Pretend I’m still in my dreams.
He jumps again,
landing 18 lbs. on my legs.
Four tiny paws piercing
Ouch! I'm awake now.

Freddy has his own website with many of his friends from yahoo.com, they had all sent him their pics to be in his site. Here's the link:
Hope to see you there. Have a great day!

Cats, how they do what they do is why they are the subject of bewitching tales.
Mimi (Poetry) - 1/19/2003 6:52:21 AM
:) Thank you so much, David!! She is gorgeous, and your piece is so loving, I smiled throughout the read, though I am also tearing up....Ah, Baybe, I miss him so...
Funny thing this morning, David, I was still abed 15 minutes ago and started hearing my kids's doors closing and opening. So I get up and there's one child in the chair, petting a cat. The younger one comes out of her room, she has strep throat and a rash over most ofher body, complaining about Sage, who is male and looks just like Mimi, saying "Sawayway woke her up, and she doesn't like that!" I just had to laugh to myself, at her serious mien, then had to slather her with Caladryl...so, when I get to the computer and see your message, I go to your site, and there is a beautiful female Sage in all her glory, and the piece was written with me in mind...and such a wonderful piece it is...Thank you so much, my friend, I feel a little more at peace with my loss, with your thoughtfulness and kind words. The offending cat here is peacefully sleeping on the back of the couch now, I'll give him a kiss for Mimi, they are probably cousins from way back in time's light. :)
Mimi (Poetry) - 1/19/2003 6:17:26 AM
David, I have one that looks just like her called, "Itty Bitty." She didn't grow much, and I know Erin will like this article. In fact David I have three cats and a dog plus
a stray cat that I feed. People keep dumping their cats off and I take them. I didn't choose any of them. They chose me. And it is weird. I never had a fondness for cats, but they all have a fondness for me. I guess they will love anybody. Good visceral write David. Bill Murray.

"Sad is the eye that looks upon the dying.
She who has the mental scars of a beast
still carries compassion."
This was exquisite and insightful~*

Beautiful piece David. The art is absolutely exquisite. I could see this pieces moving a non-believer to serious thought about their lack of faith. Wonderfully written!

Who is God? (Poetry) - 11/19/2002 6:39:46 AM
A Superb example of the melding of visual beauty with lyric strength. I feel like a bit of a voyeur to see this interaction.

The Keeper of the Stones (Poetry) - 11/10/2002 6:49:32 AM
I've always felt trees had souls, this piece reeks of the power of evil lived, and perhaps, transferred. Extraordinary write, David, this one, also, had chills wracking my neck...
Letter to Mom and dad (Poetry) - 11/10/2002 6:46:30 AM
The last stanza shot an electric chill right from my heart into my head, David, as the words ached in my mind...
Letter to Mom and dad (Poetry) - 11/9/2002 12:01:14 AM
Loved this piece .
Great imagry and admired the weel structured meter .
The Keeper of the Stones (Poetry) - 11/8/2002 5:28:19 PM
The keeper is a tree. The key to the poetry and the answer to who the villain was in the closing lines brought the poem together. We knew some mysterious personage was behind this horrible mayhem, but who could realize it was the evil spirit of the tree. A very good posting. The book must be interesting. Bill
Letter to Mom and dad (Poetry) - 11/8/2002 1:31:32 PM
