Thanks for the read girl, I'm walking away still smiling and amused...go girl!

This was so beautifully sad, so very lovely, these words:
humans leaving cold footsteps
by the lies they told
whether they were sober or not
beware of strangers in dark
even well known strangers
can become a warning with
the sound of a lark
Just touched me so,

Coni, this poem is a treasure, and I am filled with food from it. You have written
well, and it is so hard to know when to offer nourishment for the body, or for the soul. One is so scared of making a mistake and putting themselves in danger. Loved the poem. You are so sweet. Bill

Just passing through. Thinking of you often and hoping you're well. This poem touches me in an eerie, melancholy way. There's a pull from it and to it. I like it. Your writing continues to be magnificant, Coni Lea. Take care.

torn sails from lies (Poetry) - 1/31/2003 8:47:28 AM
How you must have felt inside Coni; knowing and not knowing cause no one wanted to bring it out or discuss it. They must have felt they were hiding it out of love for you; afraid if the told you it would make you feel less a part of the family. Or afraid you would think you counted less. I am sure in my heart that this is the last thing they wanted. Should you have been told. I have to say yes, that you should know your biological father; if even on medical grounds. But were you my adopted child, it would be so hard to tell you. I would want you to think of me and me alone as Dad. And no one else. Bill Murray

Coni........I just posted my first poem under the new system and it all bunched together. I had it the way I wanted it and don't know what they have done. But it is terrible right now. And your prose could be a poem. It takes a lot of cutting though. I probably could do it. BUT CAN'T

this is a very good, thoughtful write -- you are right most of us in North America have no worries about where our next several meals are coming from -- yet every city from Brownsville to Winninpeg, Ancorage to Miami, St John's to San Diego, has their food banks...
again, a good write

Coni, this is an excellent piece of work.
If walls could talk, I think we'd all run for the hills. I paint mine in comforting hues, diligently caring for them, bribing their silence.

If Texas Were the Sea (Poetry) - 1/4/2003 4:27:36 AM
I know where your coming from Erin, thiis is hard to say, but Texas Cowboys,(ftball) feel the same way about the Green Bay packers, now it would be something if the Cowboys should they have a little more of the Texas Pride, that would be a sight to see--I lost count of wins, to many loses to count-lol, I am glad you find it worthy to read, although my father is now a angel in heaven, (still watching everything I do) some of the things he has said, still echeo in my mind.
If Texas Were the Sea (Poetry) - 1/3/2003 9:28:01 PM
You're title intrigued me, coni, and your piece was uniquely enjoyable, only, at first I thought you were talking about the Dallas Cowboys! I'm a Packer Backer, grew up in Wisconsin, and the Cowboys are our deadly rivals!! Hahah, must be this Super Bowl fever going around this time of year! :D

Old beer bottle way used to be a case a day for me. Of course it is only a nickle a bottle in Calif. But even at this ... you would have found me in forgetfullness. Soused in beer and who knows what in my arms. Glad you have sense about you. At least you seem to be coming out ahead in all this. Bill Murray

A nice new perspective on beer. Well done.
SeaLoverís Plea (Poetry) - 12/31/2002 4:02:15 AM
The sea is a marvellous thing to love. But some of us land lubbers, also fear the sea, cause to us it is unknown and a potential danger. Bill Murray
SeaLoverís Plea (Poetry) - 12/31/2002 12:47:36 AM
It's good to feel passion for something you love and it's even better to be able to experience and enjoy it. I don't really know the sea but I feel a bit of your spirit through this poem and that feels good.
SeaLoverís Plea (Poetry) - 12/30/2002 10:38:23 PM
love to sea!
SeaLoverís Plea (Poetry) - 12/30/2002 9:36:47 PM
I like the sea but my heart is in the mountains. Great write!
SeaLoverís Plea (Poetry) - 12/30/2002 7:19:26 PM
I know what you mean. The love for the sea has to be born within you. I know a lot of people enjoy the beach, and fewer love to be in the sea, but I, for one, hate it. LoL. Maybe it's the overwhelming vast complexity of it all, but I don't like it. We recently moved to the east side of the United States (not the East Coast, I wish) and my parents adore the beach, well, guess who doesn't? Me, the teenager, lol. It's very odd. But I know what you mean. You see lots of seamen here and sailours (mighty handsome in their uniforms) and you must be a lover of the sea. I appreciated this because I am so opposite of it. I'll stop rambling and just tell you as I read this I saw the old-fashioned red, white, and navy colours in the background along with the very pure white beach. It was actually pretty. :) Thanks for making me a lover of the sea for a few seconds!
Warm Love and Happy New Year,

Makes me feel I am missing a part of life because all I know are small land locked lakes, yet I feel intrigued by reading this.
Hint, Hint, Iím Not A Ball (Poetry) - 12/30/2002 11:25:10 AM
It's always sad to hear of abuse within a family. I really think more young women should be taught what to do at the first signe of abuse, like how to end it. No one should except anything other than respect in any relationship.

Yes you have to get out ... or he will do it over and over and over. You made the right choice to abandown the ship he was on.
Be nice if you could have sunk it. Bill Murray

very good metaphor! abuse in any form, is abhorrent...

ah, to sail about the sea... if only eternally...

When we meet, it will be like the passing of ships on the sea.

Salute To Texas Rangers( law enforcers) (Poetry) - 12/29/2002 11:25:31 AM
I believe they stand for fairness and justice
in society. like our R.C.M.P. here in Canada. I am always extremely upset when one of these people turn out to be corrupt and it happens all to often. These bad ones really deteriorate our faith but we must look beyond that and see the real heroes who represent these great entities.
evening love affair (Poetry) - 12/29/2002 11:16:23 AM
Don't know the joy of being on the sea. I've been a land bound all my life but I know what your saying, it's good to get away at times and just relax.
Pretty She Is; Wearing Love (Poetry) - 12/29/2002 11:09:41 AM
Must be wonderful when one love lasts a lifetime. How I wish I could have had that kind of love in my life but not everybody is lucky.

Wish you luck in finding that special joy again in just sharing.
Time's Own Language (Poetry) - 12/29/2002 11:02:42 AM
Time never stops and how often we wish we could turn it back to a certain date yet as the years go by time seems to speed up.
I've Penciled Myself In (Poetry) - 12/29/2002 10:57:53 AM
Someday when reality comes home to roost this man will say, "But I done it for you." So many work-a-holic's believe their overbearing desire to make a better than average living is a demonstration of their love when all their loved one really needs is some of their time and attention. When they finally see the truth it's often too late. So sad.
Frozen In Time (Poetry) - 12/29/2002 9:32:40 AM
I often stop to look at pictures of people who are gone on and I can't help but think about their lives. How could they be so involved in everyday life and then it all stops? I am so happy and comeforted in my own life to believe that there will be life after this earthly death.
If I Were, A Beer Bottle (Poetry) - 12/29/2002 9:25:56 AM
This sure makes me stop and remember my years with beer. You sure describe it exactly. I can remember working on my car back then and I was proud to have a beer bottle setting on the fender all the time. It sure made me feel like a real man. Looking back now if I had to describe those days I would say immature dependant fool on an ego trip. Sometimes ,remembering my past, I'm glad I done all my heavy drinking when I was younger because I am not tempted to drink now. The truth would be I wish I had never got hooked on booze in the first place because it cost me more than I can tell in friends, health and financial.
If I Were, A Beer Bottle (Poetry) - 12/29/2002 3:43:10 AM
if you were a beer bottle i would start drinking beer ;) seriously, i get your message...

Strangers becoming well known again. Well known from each other. But last night two stars that passed in the heavens. Bill Murray
misty morning weekend (Poetry) - 12/27/2002 8:23:17 PM
A beautiful story told by a narrator who is almost smiling throughout the whole poem, and laughing at parts of rememberance. Reminds me of a "chick-flick" romance :)
Happy New Year!!
