Nice poem Jim!
We have much in common, we both retired for the USAF and we both earned our doctorates. The best of all is we are both Christians. Having all three in common is rare. I invite you to visit my site on Authors Den and check out the poems.
GOD BLESS YOU!

"One has promised expert support........" a wonderful thought.
By the content of your writings and your ministry site, it's plain to see that you live what you have written here, a day at a time.
We're Country!! (Poetry) - 2/25/2011 5:49:51 PM
Some may scoff, but the simple values you write about are priceless.
This is the first time I've read any of your poems. I really like this one with its wise words and theme of pure gold.

'58, eh? I favored the '57. But I shan't quibble over one year, that is if I am right about the make. Kookie, Kookie, lend me . . . The Fonz, perfection on parade, all the cool cats during this era and the best damn automobile to head out to lover's lane that could possibly be. You brought back memories dear. Dolores Leveritt! Where are you today?
Do Right!! (Poetry) - 12/24/2010 8:15:26 PM
Do right may be outdated in the eyes of this world which is passing away...but always timely in the eyes of the eternal God!
Excellent poem in enjoyable form,James!

Peace In The Storm (Poetry) - 5/12/2010 1:27:47 PM
I love storms. Watching them come and watching them go. And the peace that is found in the calm afterward. Of course, metaphorically life's storms aren't particularly welcome, but the peace experienced once they are past is ...well...um...peaceful.
Peace In The Storm (Poetry) - 5/12/2010 11:07:08 AM
Saying it like it is are you? Wonderful description of the storms ahead for us and to be dissapated in peaceful times too.

Finish The Job (Poetry) - 5/5/2010 1:32:36 AM
Tremendously encouraging poem! I especially like the way you point out that the going may be rough. Once, I went rock climbing with a friend. He got to the top first. As I was slipping back down- he encouraged me and then grasped my hand and yanked me up. Your poem is like that! a firm, encouraging hand up.
Dreaming of Sailing (Poetry) - 5/5/2010 1:27:14 AM

Keep on sharing the thoughts of your heart,brother.
AMERICA (Poetry) - 5/5/2010 1:20:49 AM
Amen! I served in the Navy and I mourn the loss America has adjusted to. I am hopeful though, when I read poems like these...because it means there are still people who care, and pray, and shine for Christ in these darker days. Thanks for the encouragement!
Blessings in Christ.
A Walk In The Park (Poetry) - 5/5/2010 1:16:18 AM
Excellent! I enjoyed this poem a lot. My mind wanders from time to time to the days of my childhood and this poem captures very well those carefree days. I like last couple of lines, as they show the benefit of reflection.
A SUMMER WALK (Poetry) - 5/5/2010 1:12:09 AM
A very relaxing read! The cadence of your writing takes me on the walk...and the thoughtful sharing of sights leaves me feeling peaceful at the end. Great write! Enjoyed.

Great tribute, James. I still remember many of my drill sergeants from 40 years ago; God bless them all and God bless you for sharing this. Well done.
Tribute to a Drill Sergeant (Poetry) - 4/28/2010 4:46:50 PM
They are a special breed of men who do their job well and many lives are saved by their efforts. From war to war they never change and I thank the sarge who made me a soldier.
The Way It Was (Poetry) - 4/28/2010 3:26:31 PM
You express much wisdom within your poetry. Your wise poetry reminds me of Emile Tubiana's poetry. You can read him here on AD.
What If.....? (Poetry) - 4/28/2010 3:24:24 PM

A SUMMER WALK (Poetry) - 4/28/2010 3:20:08 PM
Your poetry has a lightness to it that mimics the breeze on a summer morn. I enjoy the light sense of humor in it as well. :~)

The Redneck & His Truck (Poetry) - 4/28/2010 10:07:00 AM
I don't know if I can relate, it's not the same culture around cars in Sweden as in the states. But it's a funny poem and well written.

Tribute To A Fallen Soldier (Poetry) - 4/27/2010 10:53:49 PM
Dear James,my respects to the Fallen Soldier----with my head bowed in gratitude.A soldier no matter from which ever nation has to be saluted---for his bravery,courage and his ultimate sacrifice.May his country remember him with the deepest gratitude due to a Martyr.
I am a mother of one such young soldier -- Capt Sameer Roy Choudhury of the Indian Army----i know the pain and trauma of the loved ones left behind.
Words are poor expression of this agony.Still for lack of any other channel one must use words---and be grateful for the person who has strung out the garland of words to lay upon his grave.
Thank you James and may God Bless you and your poetry.

Being a veteran of both the Vietnam and Dessert Storm wars, I can appreciate this tribute. Great write, my friend. God bless.
Finish The Job (Poetry) - 4/17/2010 6:15:11 AM
Great reflective poetic words for young and old alike. We all know when we are writing books the journey seems to last foever. But we need to finish the book. Sometimes we need to say, "It is going to be now or never." Say James, you just helped me to write the beginnings of a new poem. Thank you!
Love and blessings,
Finish The Job (Poetry) - 3/29/2010 3:41:43 AM
Oh James this poem is exactly what I needed to read at this very moment, your poem gives to me encouragement to continue on! God bless you with His presence and His peace! Thanks for sharing and for caring!

You have given the readers some self improvement 101 in this one. I ran away from life and its opportunities for many years. Nice work . . .

Nicely said, James. God bless.
Life's Bumpy Road (Poetry) - 3/24/2010 8:19:12 AM
Life's potholes often shift and grow to re-test our faith. The deeper our faith the deeper the potholes become. Our fear of one pothole can be over come. . .then return when we hit a deeper one. And we don't understand until it happens to us.
Fishin' With Grandpa (Poetry) - 3/24/2010 2:02:52 AM
Delightful memories, James
AMERICA (Poetry) - 3/23/2010 10:13:04 AM
Very well said, James. Being former military myself, I am disgusted by the demise of our once great nation. Even our Congress we can no longer trust. It's become all about money and power. May God have mercy on us all. God bless you, my friend and stay well.
Fishin' With Grandpa (Poetry) - 3/23/2010 10:04:06 AM
Oh so sweet.
Fishin' With Grandpa (Poetry) - 3/23/2010 10:01:37 AM
What sweet memories. And I love the line "a closeness that can never be bought" This warmed by heart.
WELCOME TO THE USSA (Poetry) - 3/23/2010 8:06:06 AM
God help us all is all I can say; pray the bill is repealed and that those who voted it in (including the President, if he can be called that) is voted OUT!! Or impeached!
(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :(
Thank you for YOUR service; God bless you!! (Daughter of/sister of/cousin of, niece of Veterans, ALL branches!)
WELCOME TO THE USSA (Poetry) - 3/23/2010 7:02:25 AM
Mr. Martin, first and foremost I want to thank you for the service you gave to OUR country. Secondly, it appears as if you have a writers viewpoint with which you can exprress yourself. And from a Constitutional Point of View, you have every right to say what 'free speech' will afford you to say, but to suggest that passing much needed healthcare to 30 million Americans is nothing more than Socialism, then so be it. I would much prefer having a way for people to stay healthy, than to not be proud, productive Americans.
With much respect,
PS please keep writing, you have the knack.
THE WILD BLUE YONDER (Poetry) - 3/22/2010 4:56:23 PM
A nicely written dream fading into a duty. Perhaps its not to late to fly?

There are a few in my family who were Air Force, now our nephew recently enlisted. It is an amazing journey...

ON GROWING OLD (Poetry) - 3/18/2010 5:42:45 AM
How true, each beginning decade is a new adventure and a reminder of getting older. Beautiful poem with so much truth. Welcome to the den.
BEEN THERE, DONE THAT (Poetry) - 3/18/2010 5:35:31 AM
WELL WRITTEN...AND TO SOME OF THESE THINGS...I CAN RELATE. THANKS FOR SHARING AND BLESSINGS. LOVE, JOYCE * HIS INSPIRATIONS
AMERICA (Poetry) - 3/16/2010 4:47:04 PM
Indeed. America is not seen as a nation to trust anymore.
The president killed off ties with the UK so the rest of the world is going its own way. The American dream is a nightmare. In one year one man has made America a powerless joke. Denmark was his last chance to leave a mark. Now America is seen as a threat to Europe.
AMERICA (Poetry) - 3/15/2010 5:08:32 PM
The children and many adults have been brainwashed, some from kindergarten through the universities for decades as we sat on our rumps and allowed it. This is the payoff. We are no longer America. We may be waking up though. Can you say Tea Party? Welcome to AD.
