A Southern Funeral (Short Story) - 6/22/2008 7:26:38 AM
Sounds like some of our Down East funerals, either here in Nova Scotia or even in Newfoundland...the funeral turns into a party and good time for all.
A Southern Funeral (Short Story) - 6/21/2008 6:45:22 PM
Foods after our funerals are great too. We have banana bread, pumpkin breads, date and nut breads and other delicious foods. Everyone gathers but do they talk of the dead, No, they just chat about others. It is a time to get together when someone dies.
A Southern Funeral (Short Story) - 6/21/2008 4:54:45 PM
I love this, it made me hungry, I hope no-one dies.
The White Shirt (Short Story) - 2/23/2008 6:58:59 PM
beautiful, beautiful write
The White Shirt (Short Story) - 2/23/2008 6:04:12 PM
This is so utterly beautiful! This made me cry, I feel your every stroke and movement, I can catch your every glance, I can hold your
your true desire, I can touch your very soul.
The White Shirt (Short Story) - 2/23/2008 7:36:12 AM
...walking through a museum of loves colors...where a green shirt...becomes white...and brushed with oils of the soul...one finds passions eternity of two.
beautifully penned Susan...
The White Shirt (Short Story) - 2/23/2008 1:38:58 AM
Painting emotions with words, heart fluttering like on a first time love crush, and then...the silent predator cat waiting on boudoirs for passion to come and made a flesh offer among emotinal flashes of Michelangelo and Rodin in bronze lovers....

A very beautiful write that aptly describes the life on the Islands and marshes. Very well written and the composition on the photograph to the dock is splendid. Well done all the way round.

Deep Thoughts on Religion and God (Article) - 1/27/2010 11:36:52 AM
We just really need to practice - AGAPE LOVE - The first commandment in the NEW testament from J.C. It is that simple. If we truly loved eachother we would not hurt, steal, take advantage of, or kill one another physically or mentally. Period dot!
Love in Christ,
Being In Love With Love (Article) - 1/21/2008 7:09:17 PM
I haven't been here long, so I have a lot of catching up to do. Very emotional writing, sad and happy, but realistic. I'm sure many can relate to this as I do from both sides. I believe love never dies and it may be the love of love. Excellent work!
Stay well and keep writing.
SHERIFF JOE IS AT IT AGAIN! (Article) - 1/21/2008 2:53:33 PM
YES .. He's got the right idea. We saw him in a documentary here in the UK, when several Brit prisoners spent some time there, most of them wanted to go home to mum after the first day!
We saw the prisoners with the dogs too, they all seemed to be very fond of the dogs they were given to look after, and I'm sure the unconditional love that those animals offer had a major effect on most of those men.
Our prisons here are overcrowded. Recently one prisoner refused to attend a court appearance, because he was afraid someone else would get his 'luxury' cell while he was absent. We need a Sheriff Joe here, NOW!

Maybe if we had a lot more sherrifs and politicians like this man our countries might start being safe for the innocent again.
SHERIFF JOE IS AT IT AGAIN! (Article) - 1/20/2008 8:10:43 AM
I saw this sheriff on TV. He is a one of a kind man who knows how to run a Jail. He has brilliant ideas that should be copied in most of our jail. If only more of our wardens would be like Sheriff Joe Arpaio there would be less crime in these United States.

We should convince the Sheriff to run for President!!!
He's got my vote!

Deep Thoughts on Religion, Spirituality and God (Article) - 12/9/2007 5:07:31 PM
Most of these points are very good, Susan. However, there are a few...you must keep in mind free will. I agree about the Mormon part, though it remains a mystery to me. For example, I've never been comfortable with why a good person in China or Japan or other places should not share heaven's many benefits. About confession and start again the next day (Catholic practices), it is certainly bible based and valid. That's why Jesus Himself said to forgive 70 X 7 (as a minimum). The point, basically, was always to forgive. So, yes, the person can confess and go about her/his business the next day, I think. Anyway, there are many points open and good for discussion here. Cheers
Deep Thoughts on Religion, Spirituality and God (Article) - 12/9/2007 3:45:46 PM
You ask a question that has been asked many times. Each of us finds a belief that feels right for us. They all preach the same thing they just don't see that from where they are. Good little write. Lady J
Deep Thoughts on Religion, Spirituality and God (Article) - 12/9/2007 5:21:13 AM
Very deep thoughts indeed here Susan. I think that one of the greatest sins we can commit, if not against God, but against ourselves is to not keep an open mind. When we close our minds to the values and feelings of others and their belief systems, then we are surely dead. But in the end we must all remain true seekers and our own peace we must find.
Deep Thoughts on Religion, Spirituality and God (Article) - 12/8/2007 11:21:54 PM
Well if you believe Jesus Christ is God then you have a God who is forgiving over and over again. The disciples asked Him how many times should I forgive my brother, 7 times? And Christ said no not 7 times but 70 timers 7 or in other words as many times as your brother repents to you and asks for forgiveness.

great imagery in your words as always Susan
While Searching for a Memory (Poetry) - 9/27/2010 6:31:03 PM
A great nature poem Susan! Yes, I recall the memory of fresh air and blue skies in upstate N.Y. when I was a teenager. Going back was like visiting a Hillbilly slum. We rarely drive backward - we only do it because we have to. I guess we need to keep on driving forward and keep out headlights on for safety first on that road of life ahead.
Love and abundant blessings,
While Searching for a Memory (Poetry) - 9/27/2010 2:06:00 PM
Enchanting journey. Your renewal and return was much anticipated.
While Searching for a Memory (Poetry) - 9/27/2010 8:17:11 AM
This was absolutely beautiful, Susan, and I felt every word...nothing feels better to me than breathing the air one finds out in the thick of nature! Some wonderful phrasing here....
While Searching for a Memory (Poetry) - 9/27/2010 8:08:33 AM
finding a memory and regaining sense and sensibility : win-win-win!!! Fabulous, coherent (and humorous!) philosophising in tightly woven verse. You never lose your style or your generous touch, Susan. So good to see you here again. Love it when you seamlessly weave your urbane and free-spirit sides to bring us such presence, such balance, such wisdom. Bless you, xx
While Searching for a Memory (Poetry) - 9/27/2010 7:48:31 AM
Susan this is exceptionally well done, you drew us in to your country like a moth is drawn to light except in this case you allowed us not only to live but to enjoy,

While Searching for a Memory (Poetry) - 9/27/2010 3:53:59 AM
Susan, this is stunning poetry! I am so glad to see you back here, I have missed you so much.
It certainly seems you have taken a mental health break..I need to do this soon, but my choice of sanctuary is the ocean. Perhaps Tahiti or some remote quaint island retreat...
Come back again very soon, don't stay away....
Peace, love and light,
While Searching for a Memory (Poetry) - 9/27/2010 3:35:55 AM
Simply beautiful, Susan.
While Searching for a Memory (Poetry) - 9/27/2010 12:40:38 AM
"The material comes to own you..."
and once we've made that realisation, Susan,
we're in a position to move beyond and find ourselves again.
A gracious ode to what's best and natural and, in hope,
what will last a while longer if we're wise enough
to temper greed.
While Searching for a Memory (Poetry) - 9/26/2010 7:40:08 PM
Invoking a search for happiness is something worth finding.
To secure them to memory get harder the older one gets.
But it's worth it.
I think poets live in a fantasy world anyway!!

Susan, it is good to see your words again. The verse is ecellent as always, yet there seems and feels a finality in these words...might just be me...good to see you again.
Are you back home yet?

Susan, I have no idea how I missed this supremely written poem, I could feel your words jumping out at me off the screen of my computer..I love "Passion's Metamorphosis" it is definitely one that I will read again..
Very well thought out and written..
Much peace, love and light,
Passion's Metamorphosis (Poetry) - 4/26/2010 4:43:49 PM
It's wonderful to be able to come here and read your poetry Susan even though I don't find the time to do so as often as I'd like.
This is a lovely poem and I love the line, "Its in the heart and mind and eyes...it is a silent duty" that shows the genius of your talent.
I sure do miss you,
Passion's Metamorphosis (Poetry) - 4/26/2010 1:41:34 PM
Love the verve and energy in this just BURSTING its buttons... or out of the cocoon. Somehow reminds me of the Anais Nin (??) quote about the risk of staying in the tightly-furled bud being greater than the fear it takes to bloom (VERY paraphrased!!) Love is the best and greatest reason to let go and metamorphose! Your movement through these well-conceived lines demonstrates how and why. xx
Passion's Metamorphosis (Poetry) - 4/26/2010 5:57:31 AM
Yes, love is a great thing, though I got to admit sometimes I kinda wish I never found it, for it hurts when one cannot express it enough or in a way that they want too...Ed

...the flight of love has endless boundries,,,this is breathtaking Susan~
Passion's Metamorphosis (Poetry) - 4/24/2010 7:47:15 PM
Love is wonder, to extreme, in passion's metamorphosis.
I find the meaning expressed via your verses to be so true and real, Susan. This is why when something cause that love to "go wrong," no length of time will "make it all better." I have not found it to be true that "time heals all wounds" when it comes to love. Thank you for sharing this meaningful perspective. Love and best wishes,
Passion's Metamorphosis (Poetry) - 4/24/2010 6:21:13 PM
This is really good Susan. Love...always and intriguing subject.
Passion's Metamorphosis (Poetry) - 4/24/2010 5:38:56 PM
You caught it- the love wonder.
I've seldom found it captured like this...
Beautiful work- beautiful experience.
Passion's Metamorphosis (Poetry) - 4/24/2010 5:36:37 PM
Yes I like this...some say love and lust are not the same, and perhaps they are right but...when passion and the first stirrings of desire awaken in two people...it all too often can develop into love...you captured your subject very well here Sussan.
Passion's Metamorphosis (Poetry) - 4/24/2010 3:35:33 PM

beautiful write with a reminder to take care of our lovely planet
Southern Shades (Poetry) - 4/7/2010 3:46:20 PM
Enjoyed as I remember evenings at Brazos Bend with birds twittering to sleeping places and alligators booming in the rising mist.
Southern Shades (Poetry) - 4/7/2010 4:12:14 AM
I love it when there is such a special feeling you want to share.
All too often it just can't get across the bridge, and my loneliest moments are those when I have to carry the feeling home by myself.
But you have given Southern Shades the perfect wings.
Thanks for sharing that magic.
Southern Shades (Poetry) - 4/7/2010 3:48:29 AM
Sounds heavenly, Susan.....love to experience it one day!
Southern Shades (Poetry) - 4/7/2010 12:59:14 AM
As always your writes make me long to see and feel the life of the south. I am hoping to go to Texas this fall and I am also so excited about that. Great write that paints a soft picture of warmth and love for your home...
Southern Shades (Poetry) - 4/7/2010 12:09:18 AM
Nicely done, Susan. Been all over Dixie myself and I love it.
Southern Shades (Poetry) - 4/6/2010 11:56:55 PM
Highly atmospheric, Susan, and with the absolutely right word choices.
Southern Shades (Poetry) - 4/6/2010 5:57:49 PM
You have very effectively shared the "flavor" of Dixie, Susan; most enticing. Love and best wishes to you,
Southern Shades (Poetry) - 4/6/2010 5:52:06 PM
beautiful tidbits of southern charm!

Nice N'Easy (Poetry) - 3/30/2010 6:50:00 AM
" I feel you in me always" wow-that was quite the sentence-steamned up my glasses-well done--if this poem is for somebody in your life you should tell them as this is a very romantic poem
Nice N'Easy (Poetry) - 3/29/2010 9:00:42 AM
Lilting is the word to describe this - characterized by a bouyant rhythm. Goodness Belle ... it takes talent to rhyme amd flow this effortlessly. I am going to celebrate reading this with 6 Hershey kisses. Yummy!
Blessings and love ...
Nice N'Easy (Poetry) - 3/29/2010 6:07:23 AM
This is, as you say, SOOOOOOOOOO Nice N'Easy that you convince us that yes, indeed, such a love CAN exist... and even more, that you've actually found it and are experiencing it!! This speaks from that special place of "knowing", Susan, and is a joy to read, to hear about and to behold. Bless you! xx
Nice N'Easy (Poetry) - 3/28/2010 8:32:25 AM
Sounds like hair coloring. I get the message. Am rolling it on my tongue, like a French phrase, as I write. Like nice 'n easy cookies, a real treat.
Nice N'Easy (Poetry) - 3/27/2010 8:28:39 PM
Great writing. I enjoyed reading it.
Nice N'Easy (Poetry) - 3/27/2010 2:31:06 PM
So soft and wonderful...this write is one of your best.
Nice N'Easy (Poetry) - 3/27/2010 12:32:42 PM
As a ship slowly comes into harbor. I can visualize soaking up the Lord's light of love. There is nothing quite like it. I can feel the energy of your passionate poetry nice & easy.

A delight to read as is the art work with its warm tones.
Nice N'Easy (Poetry) - 3/27/2010 2:11:42 AM
A sincere and beautiful write, Susan. Well done.
Nice N'Easy (Poetry) - 3/26/2010 8:46:57 PM
...and I love the 'nice n' easy' almost throwaway style...gentle on the ear and on the spirit, Susan. Very fine.
Nice N'Easy (Poetry) - 3/26/2010 7:06:32 PM
Love is all, Susan. Your verses pay sweet homage to it. Thank you. Love and best wishes to you,
Nice N'Easy (Poetry) - 3/26/2010 7:02:43 PM
A wonderfully written fantasy.
Simple Things (Poetry) - 3/26/2010 5:14:40 AM
This answers a question from a previous comment. You must be inspired by Savannah again. She is a mystery and and a blessing captured in time and you caught her natural spiritin astounding imagery.
Why Do You Come for Me (Poetry) - 3/26/2010 5:10:38 AM
I haven't had the fortune of reading or writing much of anything barring a snippet here and there that I share with a special soneone. This is special Susan. It speaks only too well to life and what can happen to a relationship left untended, and not always by the gardener who only wished to reap the fruits. Instead, the tender must deal with the return of an untrustworthy seed risking the heart, if dared.
So wonderful to read you again. Have you yet made that journey back to your beloved Savannah on a more permanent basis?
A Sky of Opal Jewels (Poetry) - 3/25/2010 7:05:00 AM
I envy what you saw in the most respectful way.
You have eyes that are attune to the beauties of life.
Lovely Belle ...
A Sky of Opal Jewels (Poetry) - 3/24/2010 5:27:00 PM
This fuels the imagaination with the beauty that both picture and verses offer us as readers, well done Susan.
A Sky of Opal Jewels (Poetry) - 3/24/2010 3:51:11 PM
Lovely as a sunset with baby blues jumping the sun.
A Sky of Opal Jewels (Poetry) - 3/24/2010 7:03:13 AM
This is so beautiful Susan. You brought the picture to life with the beauty of your words. Well done! Peace and love in Christ.
A Sky of Opal Jewels (Poetry) - 3/24/2010 6:21:57 AM
This has such lovely visuals; soft images that are pleasing to the senses and you brought them to your reader in such a striking verse. Beautiful piece and the artwork is beautiful, as well. ~Elizabeth
A Sky of Opal Jewels (Poetry) - 3/24/2010 3:30:25 AM
This is stunning poetry, Susan....You have vividly captured the essence of that picture....awesome!
A Sky of Opal Jewels (Poetry) - 3/24/2010 2:28:07 AM
A perfect reminder- we only need to look outside- often.
So much beauty exists all around us.
You are quite the artist to write so well.
A Sky of Opal Jewels (Poetry) - 3/24/2010 1:58:46 AM
Really beautiful, Susan
A Sky of Opal Jewels (Poetry) - 3/24/2010 12:57:14 AM

Barrier of Speech (Poetry) - 3/23/2010 7:42:19 PM
This is a theme I can identify with particularly, almost peculiarly; again, beautifully written with depth and resonance. I'm glad I found you.

Must have been beautiful to watch
As it was to read.
Through your words, I can see the jewelery.
But. . . ."Enough of the Night"
A Sky of Opal Jewels (Poetry) - 3/23/2010 5:51:40 PM
Beautifully rendered, Susan...so many wonderfully rich phrases...'midnight gravy' is special indeed

Why Do You Come for Me (Poetry) - 3/21/2010 8:07:41 AM
You bloody well not worry... unless... you are older and richer. Put your soul in this one.
Why Do You Come for Me (Poetry) - 3/21/2010 7:04:56 AM
Watch me bleed
or cause me to bleed -
Anothers true intentions are
often hidden in this world. At
one time or another we can all become
victims of anothers guiles.
"Sweet mystery who speaks to me"
"sing me into heaven"
I love these lines ...
Excellent Belle ...
Ode to the Irish Gardner (Poetry) - 3/21/2010 6:59:18 AM
A wonderful insight Belle.
And you know I've asked you other
questions on another site.
Blessings to you ...
Why Do You Come for Me (Poetry) - 3/21/2010 6:44:26 AM
I like the way your heart beats in each poetic line and how in sadness at the end it's left to die.
Why Do You Come for Me (Poetry) - 3/21/2010 6:22:19 AM
Nicely done with lots of feeling and heart...

Can you rock me into midnight
Hold me tightly while I sleep
Or sing me into heaven
I love these verses and the passion inspiring the whole poem, Susan. Love and best wishes,

Good one Susan, are you sure your last name is not O'Vegter lol

Pleasingly funny, honey. You'll attract many green bees.

So be it. But do you know why the Irish have potatoes and the yanks have oil? Well it's because the Irish had first choice.
Ode to the Irish Gardner (Poetry) - 3/17/2010 2:06:48 PM
Nicely done, Susan. I had a good laugh. Thanks and God bless.
Ode to the Irish Gardner (Poetry) - 3/17/2010 12:30:36 PM
I would need more than the luck of the Irish to keep plants healthy- or even alive.

This reads as if you were flying beside these birds.
The wonders they see
What nature will be
Nothing we lack

Thanks for feeding us this bounty.
Colors of the Wind (Poetry) - 3/14/2010 3:25:47 PM
Fantastic image and an equally fantastic write.
Rich with imagery and intelligence.
Eleven years old too - goodness where has it gone?
Blessings Belle ...
Colors of the Wind (Poetry) - 3/14/2010 11:06:41 AM
Wonderful. Without migrations, many birds would go unseen. The local rookery of cattle egrets enables me to see three buzzards from my suburban backyard yesterday.
Colors of the Wind (Poetry) - 3/14/2010 10:59:11 AM
Truly beautiful wite Susan and with such intensity it brings the outdoors alive with each line...
Colors of the Wind (Poetry) - 3/14/2010 6:22:51 AM
beautiful write, the coming of so mny species is so glorious!
Colors of the Wind (Poetry) - 3/14/2010 2:54:40 AM
Amazing natures call / A sight to behold / You made the migration even more special than it is, Susan, with you carefully flowing poetry / I hear their voices in the distance of my mind.
Colors of the Wind (Poetry) - 3/14/2010 12:33:52 AM
Gorgeous write, Susan. Very well done indeed.

Discontent (Poetry) - 3/11/2010 3:02:11 PM
Dear Susan, you have expressed yourself well in this meaningful piece. I'd like to believe that everything happens for a reason, be it something good or that hurts, it would still serve the purpose of strengthening our inner selves for lifes twists and turns. Well done! Peace and love in Christ.
Discontent (Poetry) - 3/9/2010 8:32:05 PM
Love's song for me has often been a sad and lonely lament, I really can relate to your choice of words here.
Honest writing at it's best
Discontent (Poetry) - 3/6/2010 6:45:36 AM
Its hue is darker, but so true. I've often wondered why women succumbed to the clever lies of predators, but ignored the purity of honest young guys. No danger, no desire?
The Fish (Poetry) - 3/5/2010 4:12:10 PM
Not into astro-ology but your web shot is mite-e-fine.
Discontent (Poetry) - 3/2/2010 3:10:59 PM
An aching ballad, Belle. For some reason, I can hear Bob Dylan speaking this... or singing... I am never quite sure with him which is which... but it has the same hard-hitting effect, the way it continues to unfold from line to line. This is a tale that never ceases to be told, but you have done so uniquely. xx
Discontent (Poetry) - 3/2/2010 3:10:01 PM
Ah, much to reflect upon here.
Discontent (Poetry) - 3/1/2010 1:54:33 PM
Just beautifully written Belle.
Flows like a river, and it sounds
wonderful spoken aloud. enjoyed this
a lot. Blessings to you ... r

Discontent (Poetry) - 2/28/2010 6:31:14 PM
true enough and well expressed!
Discontent (Poetry) - 2/28/2010 3:22:40 PM
Hmmm, we are kinda on the same wavelength.
Could love be natures trick. Without it we would not propagate. Then we see the trick that took us away from everything we really loved.
Discontent (Poetry) - 2/28/2010 3:20:53 PM
Love and utterance of such is a two-edged sword, agitated by the forked tongue of vile assault of the lovers camp.
The Fish (Poetry) - 2/26/2010 6:28:36 PM
Susan you are a wonderful writer been away but coming back to your voice warms my heart truly "Composed of complexities larger than most Compassion compounded." beautiful thank you

Quite the job eh sis?
Guarding the abstract mind.
The fish must work overtime with mine
I am a March 17 baby.
Peace and celestial fun ... I like that
I enjoyed this - quite a character study.
Blessings and luv Belle ...

such a beautiful write,
