lol loved this and it is scary because it is ppl who believe and raise their children to believe this way another thing the fall of America i believe is coming if so really simple truths aren't addressed so many similarities to Rome.........
My Response to Dan Johnson (Article) - 10/15/2010 5:38:07 AM
I knew many who are that way but we don't move in the same social/spiritual circles anymore. I think preachers have ruined more lives of the honestly faithful than the devil himself ever will.

I am that homosexual woman Proud! I am that woman that has command of her own body...and MIND! I am not a Christian, nor do I want to be. I honor the pagan goddess and carry the Wiccan practitioner pendant. I write about all religions! This is a business and I am good at it. I am LESBIAN! Love to you, Dayvid...have a great time tomorrow in La Junta at your poetry reading.
Love and Free-thinking pastors,

I'm thinking it's mostly the inbred preachers that have run amok. Yeah, I know, define inbred. Patrick
My Response to Dan Johnson (Article) - 10/7/2010 8:31:28 AM
Gee Dave. Thank you for that last line because you had me scared. We must both be on the same wave today because a group who call themselves Christian just had a thing here. These people burn the flag and hate homosexuals. I am not one but I will not hate.
Sensuality Meets Sexuality (Article) - 9/3/2010 2:28:15 PM
Dayvid, An excellent topic and one I've never thought of...sensual to me is the way a woman carries herself; her walk, way she talks etc. Sexuality is how a woman looks with or without clothing, alluring, takes good care of herself and knows the road ahead of her.
No model since Marilyn Monroe has ever been able to capture the camera the way she did...She made love to the camera everytime.

Goodness, Dayvid. You need to be more careful about your eyes/contact lenses. You have made a wonderful poem out of a disaster.
A Pair of 13s and Acid in Your Contact Case (Poetry) - 1/15/2013 12:58:21 AM
OH Dayvid, u got to be MORE careful, even though the eyeball may heal easily, it is still one thing you do not want to ever lose...
A Pair of 13s and Acid in Your Contact Case (Poetry) - 1/14/2013 9:24:34 AM
Praises for that! The eyeball has superior healing qualities.
Once, many years ago working in the finishing department of a mobile home factory, I got a piece of steel in my eye that was irritated immensely by my hard contacts. With a scalpel, an eye doctor deftly removed the sliver of steel. After that I didn't wear the contacts during the day in all that dust, only at night.
After returning to college in the fall, I began wearing the contacts all day for the first few days until my eyes became so irritated I went to the doctor that sold me the contacts. He told me that I had worn the surface off my cornea and that I needed to start all over after letting my eyes heal for a few days with training my eyes, a few hours at a time, to wear the hard contacts all day again.
Later, I was stopped by a County Mountie. He came up to my car, and said, “What is the matter, didn't see that speed sign back there?”
I said, “I have contacts and…”
The cop cut me off and replied, “I don't care who you know, I'm giving you a ticket for speeding.” ;-)

Well I have known eye pain and will continue to do so. I am glad that you have were given relief and that all is well. Myrna
A Pair of 13s and Acid in Your Contact Case (Poetry) - 1/14/2013 12:16:24 AM
Yuck, I had a similar thing with a chemical on the contacts that caused my eyes to burn. AGONY! Yet antibios and cream did help until I was next seen. It is a dreadful thing.
A Pair of 13s and Acid in Your Contact Case (Poetry) - 1/13/2013 4:20:35 PM
Good news...you're seeing again. I can't imagine how painful that must have been.

Lunatic Fringe! "Religion is the opium of the people" is one of the most frequently paraphrased statements of Karl Marx. Masses are led to believe by the neo-cheaters that every book will sell and websites can sell them for you! Well hell, it's taken me twenty years to get 5 books sold and 15 films now in Pre-production. Ask yourself where false propheting is? Bankrupt! Flooded markets and disgraced deceivers licking the empty till. Reality bites! Hea preacher, I voted for you to star in some of my films. You wanna play a preacher? Amish have some nice horse-drawn hay equipment out in the field!

with the help of Sage review (there were things i wasn't quit sure of) history will and do repeat, without hope and blindly following the media the world is certainly a dark place, very interesting piece still research to do!!!!
Bi and Philo (Poetry) - 12/9/2012 7:29:42 PM
A magnified poetic essay drop in the eye of water the philosophy here is to not go dry but keep the daily grind of religion flowing as in your Denver band Denck of which I do follow with a big grin, and to not be a monotonous drip by fucked-up, uneducated generic religion nothings. Many Mennonites survived the Stalinist-Hitler terror and Holocaust and now modern-day conservative Mennos where the rub is that conservative Mennonites as a whole have not yet put into practice a world view that is attractive to both seekers and their own children and grandchildren. It's the rebel Menno preacher that will always entertain new Menno followers enticing them with that which stretches his reach out into the people's music, poetry, art, photography and charitable missions within their own cities and counties so close that need faith healers such as yourself, Day. The Menno adventure seekers is why there's heavenly head on beer at the church brothers and sisters houses and the local pub to hear Graybill's drums of Denck! Bi and Philo abbreviated but long-written history and meditation of religion into mainstream society.

Walls and Walls of Glass (Poetry) - 11/25/2012 8:43:21 AM
Dayvid...your poem reminded me of a friend's house in So. California in the a 1960's. Almost all glass, each room provided a fantastic view of the San Gabriel Valley. The bathroom was bigger than some apts. I've lived in. A huge deck in the bedrooms and living room provided such a panoramic view. The hardest job they said was keeping the windows clean.
Walls and Walls of Glass (Poetry) - 11/22/2012 10:40:25 AM
There are a few glasshouses out there and I love them. I love light and bringing the outside in. Unfortunately, sunlight fades bright colors on paintings, furniture, and so on… So you have to protect your valuable, colorful things from the sun. Otherwise, that's my idea of beautiful living. I plan to do that soon with a new home that will also be very energy efficient, making use of the sun to heat the house and provide electricity as well as light.

Aren't myths fun! This is probably one that King James, the gay one, mistranslated from the ancient scripts like many more because many of the ancient words had many meetings like modern English today, and the translators just plain got it wrong, making some passages peer nonsense.

I'm Calling You Out! (Poetry) - 11/5/2012 8:38:47 AM
Mighty words, indeed. Nonviolence is the way to go, but there's a certain violence in the force of your words. If you mean that you have a higher force behind you, you may be mistaken and blindsided because there is no higher force there. As Gandhi and Martin Luther King proved, nonviolence only works when you have huge throngs of people participating and some get hurt very badly.

Sometimes, it's better to stop and clear our heads of all the activities going on and just listen to the “sweet sound of nothing.”

I really like the honestly expressed and the metaphor of being “washed away” by the current.
My first thought was about some automobile in a story by Stephen King.
Christine (Poetry) - 11/2/2012 6:18:38 AM
Dayvid, it's a good thing for me, I don't respond to text's from anyone. Nice writing, no... very good writing.
Christine (Poetry) - 11/2/2012 1:52:19 AM
some ex's can be friends & some can be harmful
I gather this is somewhere in between letting go & hanging on?
that hurts....someone has been pushing me for many years
I finally said enough is enough
the joys in our heart need to be guarded
against negative people & their contaminant junk
they try to push & dump on us
so let's go swimming & make sand angels

Yes, the preacher's wife rocks! Say hi to Gwen. Now about Christine, that's a different story...Day thanks for sharing...get this worked out and you and me will do another collab...texts can be inspiration, and so can ex's.

I must admit you are quite above my head, but I enjoyed this nevertheless :)
Succinct Ethnographies (Poetry) - 4/28/2012 7:45:04 PM
Human culture compressed in a few words of what tiny man knows of a vast ethereal presence is narrow-minded and ignorant of the mass of creation...Dayvid this poetry is inclusive in your repertoire of theological study of the Mennonites who have long given us a history of devotion that ties us to the rich soil, the land, the crops and binds our souls to a faithful community of helping hands...Blessed Be.

Can't top Sage. Never could. Never will. Enjoyed your poem anyway.
The Honorable Doctor (Poetry) - 11/19/2011 4:53:36 PM
Sounds like ego's synonym of diarrea of the mouth. You know, Dayvid, nothing ever comes from self-centered personalities. They all have boring lives just like they speak in monotone, the same pitch, the same bunch of crap. Now give us a saddlebag doctor who talks about turpentine remedies and the religion of 1800s apothecaries and we'll sit all day and listen. Good poetry and to the point.

Magnified Reflection of You (Poetry) - 10/10/2011 4:13:58 AM
Both captivating and thought provoking, Dayvid.

Yeah, this is a keeper.
East Colfax Avenue (Poetry) - 10/9/2011 8:54:12 AM
Wonderfully atmospheric, even haunting!
Good to see you posting, Dayvid :)
East Colfax Avenue (Poetry) - 10/9/2011 7:17:53 AM
It may be the longest "Main" steet, but sadly, every city has one just like it. Nicely done Dayvid, great to have you back. Dick

Been there. Participated in the daily and nightly trashgrab.

I think you and i know this scene all too well dave--well done
East Colfax Avenue (Poetry) - 10/8/2011 4:59:26 PM
Dayvid, You are back...Interesting poem--26 miles long!
God Hangs Out the Wash (Poetry) - 10/7/2011 3:56:20 PM
Laundry day, baby! Good to see you back posting, Dayvid. The religion of clothespin clamps this one on tight, swaying in the heavenly breeze with the one-of-kind poetry style of Menno Graybill. I appreciate the alternative slant...this is LGBT marketable! Hugs Pastor.
Love and a shot of hard cider,
God Hangs Out the Wash (Poetry) - 10/7/2011 3:43:17 PM
and what a laundry she has....love this one David...Sue

But of course. Didn't you vote for change? Patrick
Heaven (Poetry) - 4/21/2011 11:19:42 AM
Sounds like a blast. I'm told it's actually a long days drive from LA. May have to give it a shot sometime. Patrick

of charlatans and false-prophets, yes, washington's full of them these days: teleprompter-reading, war-mongering, wall street oligarch mascot empty suits! if i were a rat, i'd head for the sewers too, much nicer beneath the beltway!! good poem man, best wishes always!
Resurrection Day #2 (Poetry) - 4/14/2011 5:03:45 AM
Incredible and powerful imagery Dayvid!
Resurrection Day #2 (Poetry) - 4/14/2011 2:28:47 AM
Sons of prophets wonder

Quite powerful, my friend.

Resurrection Day #2 (Poetry) - 4/13/2011 9:29:11 AM
Very well said, Dayvid.
Resurrection Day #2 (Poetry) - 4/13/2011 9:05:02 AM
You certainly have a unique view of the way things could happen, Dayvid. There is a typo in the second verse of the second stanza (nashing/gnashing). Thank you for sharing this. I love the ending in particular. Love and peace to you,
Resurrection Day #2 (Poetry) - 4/13/2011 8:07:17 AM

The Crow and the Parson (Poetry) - 4/13/2011 5:16:54 AM

The Crow and the Parson (Poetry) - 4/11/2011 12:53:35 PM
We find God in the most unusual places Dayvid!
The Crow and the Parson (Poetry) - 4/10/2011 9:13:38 AM
Truly compelling and darkly meaningful, Dayvid. Thank you. Love and peace to you,
The Crow and the Parson (Poetry) - 4/10/2011 8:37:53 AM

Welcome back-loved it.
The Crow and the Parson (Poetry) - 4/9/2011 4:21:46 PM
God is always there, next door or across the street, he keeps his eye's on us no matter where & when...e
The Crow and the Parson (Poetry) - 4/9/2011 1:17:31 PM
Sparkles with your signature style, Dayvid!
I was going to take some AD time off but had to stop by your den when I saw you came to my last poem. You have not been around for so long that...I wanted to say hi!
The Crow and the Parson (Poetry) - 4/9/2011 10:15:48 AM
You sacrilegious . . . Oops! Sorry about that. I like it. Wished I'd wrote it. May someday. Say it was mine. Naw. Don't play those games. If it ain't cold, hard cash I don't steal. Haha!!
Tomfoolery aside, this was an in-your-face good'n.
Heaven (Poetry) - 4/5/2011 5:43:29 PM
'Heaven' is not a place nor a destination. It is a stare of Being. I can feel the heaven that your are in this place of your poem. Thank you for sharing that with us.
Heaven (Poetry) - 4/2/2011 6:05:45 AM
LOvely writing sweet man..Hugsss
Heaven (Poetry) - 3/31/2011 6:51:25 AM
Never been to Moab (probably flown over it, a time or two) but Google says it's a paradise for outdoor activities, or as you call it, "HEAVEN"
You should open a travel agency.
Heaven (Poetry) - 3/30/2011 5:29:29 AM
Never been that far west, sounds neat though...e
Heaven (Poetry) - 3/30/2011 5:03:00 AM
I like it.
Heaven (Poetry) - 3/29/2011 6:59:35 PM
You have shared the ambiance of the place and the experience very effectively with your words, Dayvid. Thank you. Love and peace to you,
Heaven (Poetry) - 3/29/2011 3:26:20 PM
Loved the Rockies when I lived in Cheyenne and Denver. Still think about them.
Heaven (Poetry) - 3/29/2011 3:15:30 PM
Arches Nat Park? Oooohh,I love that place! The beauty of a distant thunderstorm rolling across the desert as seen through the arches has a wondrous end!
Heaven (Poetry) - 3/29/2011 3:02:27 PM
This is full of the richness of the west...a place where I know heaven reigns. Nicely done, Dayvid.
Heaven (Poetry) - 3/29/2011 2:56:10 PM
Arches make us feel heaven's natural hard creation sheltered within Gaia's womb and when we drink beer we go with the flow. Cultures is a category of diversity, Dayvid. Cheers!
Love and the Big Jesus Beer Tankard,

Sounds like up here in Canada, Dayvid. Thanks for sharing. Love and peace,
Again? (Poetry) - 3/29/2011 7:27:58 AM
yes, we are a bit of a mess--well expressed!
Again? (Poetry) - 3/29/2011 6:48:24 AM
Sadly it is happening again, and it will happen again, and again until someone says "I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it any more." Your thoughts are well expressed.
Cheers with hopes for peace,
Again? (Poetry) - 3/29/2011 5:14:23 AM
Oh yes and where is that change for the better?
God bless....(we need it)
Again? (Poetry) - 3/29/2011 4:31:25 AM
A perpetual process of change...and you are so apt and eloquent here!

David, Forever changing...
Again? (Poetry) - 3/28/2011 8:21:03 PM
yes, again unfortunately. the military-industrial complex has essentially become the state. as such, the body follows the head. no money to repair the country, unlimited funds for another CIA post-modern coup in the Middle East. thanks for covering this. hyper-inflation on the way... we're enslaved to the off-shore bankster cartel which seeks to debauch the currency, collapse the economy and buy the remaining assets of the US at firesale prices. Thank the Rothschild-Rockefeller criminal robber-barons to start with.
Again? (Poetry) - 3/28/2011 7:58:09 PM
And it will continue, Dave, I don't see any way around it...e
Life is Love (Poetry) - 3/28/2011 6:50:29 PM
Beautifully written, Dayvid.
Life is Love (Poetry) - 3/28/2011 9:55:38 AM
Okay. You managed to turn the world and life and love, never mind lust between the well-written lines of this poem. I can relate to so much.
Life is Love (Poetry) - 3/28/2011 8:12:28 AM

You and Elk (Poetry) - 3/26/2011 1:36:49 PM
What a magical picture you have painted Dayvid! Of a day in the mountains, and a night to remember. Ooooh yeah! xx
You and Elk (Poetry) - 3/26/2011 1:23:15 PM
Ah, so inviting, Dayvid. It's how I feel when I turn at Twin Lakes and start up over Independence Pass to Aspen where I've seen elk many times coming down from Leadville. Be well. Blessed Be.
Love and Menno prayer
You and Elk (Poetry) - 3/26/2011 1:17:42 PM
I love the mood that your verses have created, Dayvid. Most inviting. Love and peace to you,

Clashing Ideals (Poetry) - 2/3/2011 9:17:36 AM
Dayvid, This is how changes occur and
how God uses us as 'pawns'. Great write!

Eve and God (Poetry) - 1/30/2011 2:09:59 PM
They didn't teach like this in Sunday school. If they had I might have stuck around. Patrick
Clashing Ideals (Poetry) - 1/29/2011 10:58:26 PM
It is bad enough when good ideals clash, but when stupid ideals clash we are in for a shitstorm. Patrick
Clashing Ideals (Poetry) - 1/29/2011 11:41:31 AM
Indeed, Dayvid. And your words express a universal and timeless theme of the human condition in this world/life. Thank you. Love and peace,
Clashing Ideals (Poetry) - 1/29/2011 10:14:09 AM
Ah what fools us soldiers were, for the causes we fought were lost from within.

i agree with Victoria-the truth is always best! i love the truth in your write!
Clashing Ideals (Poetry) - 1/29/2011 7:47:38 AM
poignant write-well done!
Clashing Ideals (Poetry) - 1/29/2011 3:59:14 AM
I really like what Peter said!
I am taken by this visual piece
into the relationship of man and woman
involved inside their personal power struggles
we all do it (have our own perceptions)
Finding The Middles
the happy mediums
Ray of Love (Poetry) - 1/29/2011 3:55:09 AM
one of the best places to be!!
It’s Over (Poetry) - 1/29/2011 3:53:27 AM
If I were her, I would want to be hurt
with the truth
rather than destroyed with a lie
and this piece of heart speaking poetry
really speaks of a loving heart which
does not need to be torn...
Early Morning (Poetry) - 1/29/2011 3:47:49 AM
I love it too
wish I could join you & talk shop
poetic shop that is!!
