Faeries, Dragons & Unicorns (Book) - 5/26/2007 10:32:05 AM
Hi! Joyce, I read the excerpt to "Faeries,Dragons&Unicorns". I am currently working on a "Fantasy" novel and find writing about such creatures a lot of fun. Please Feel free to visit my site here in the "Den" or

I bought this book and I love it, while reading it alone. I felt lost in a Wonderland of Faries,Unicorns etc... The colors are exquisite and while with my granddaughter, we both love reading and looking at each page.Thank you! WArmly, *She*oxo

That book sounds awesome, Joyce!

Moonbeams and Myst (Book) - 7/27/2004 10:06:12 PM
Today, as I was feeling like the world was caving in on me, I sat beneath my big maple tree in the backyard with this book and a glass of Chablis. Just as I had expected, since I have been a Joyce Hale fan for years, I was not disappointed regarding how the authorís prose speaks to my heart. The poem, "Make The World Go Away" just took my breath away, as it was so perfect for my mood! Then my pity party dissolved when I came upon "If I Had Known", and I reminded myself to embrace what is GOOD about life instead of dwelling on what is not. "Over The Hill" made me laugh and cheer, as I remembered that true beauty is ageless, timeless, and wise. Ms. Hale has a talent for taking the painful, the beautiful, and the questionable in life, sifting through the ashes, and making sense of it all. Oh, what a pleasure it was to browse through this book! The authorís own photographs are tremendous and capture the essence of each poem perfectly and often time, hauntingly. I recommend this book to anyone who is looking for validation or a quick pick-me-up when lifeís problems seem insurmountable.

My Guardian Gemstone (Short Story) - 2/18/2007 12:42:50 PM
Wow! Fascinating, Joyce. This is like your special "talisman." Thank you for sharing this wonderful true tale. Love and peace to you, Regis

My Guardian Gemstone (Short Story) - 10/23/2006 9:59:49 AM
A true adventure for both you and your stone. Keep at this story writing, you probably have many more tales to share with us! Oh, and once in a while, place your stone in a grassy, safe spot; it just may need some re-energizing!(but tie it down) Micke

My Guardian Gemstone (Short Story) - 7/13/2006 1:10:40 PM
Joyce You and that " Lucky " turquoise gemstone do not want to be parted.. I will say a little prayer that it stays that way :) Love your free and relaxed style of writing and your magnificent word usage ! Peace Peter

My Guardian Gemstone (Short Story) - 7/7/2006 5:58:22 PM
This is a lovely piece of turquoise... my first comment. Second comment is that it would appear your stone had a great sense of adventure, choosing to explore the world, yet always waiting for you. Third comment is about your writing.... totally natural feel to it, as other readers have commented, easy to follow and continue reading. I ask you to continue to write in this form... it is wonderful. judith

Book Review - Bones of the Badlands by Jane Kerr Colhoff (Article) - 5/9/2007 3:31:08 PM
The book review is good and accurately summarizes the story line of the book except for one item - the story actually takes place in the South Dakota Badlands, not North.

"He who hung the stars and set the ocean, moon and sun;" He has given you a gift indeed Joyce......Thanks for sharing it with us all.... Peace, Bill

Exposition (Poetry) - 3/17/2007 10:13:43 AM
A wonderful write and reminder for us all...for when we tell God how troubled and how big the storm or how deep the valley is, we are planting a seed of doubt! Amen sister we should rebuke and tell the storm what a mighty God we serve, with the mention of His name and the blood that we are covered by....the enenmy must flee...wonderful write, enjoyed this much! Blessings, Joyce Bowling

Exposition (Poetry) - 3/17/2007 8:59:08 AM

Exposition (Poetry) - 3/17/2007 6:58:40 AM
Yup that's the right way.... And say it with attitude...

Exposition (Poetry) - 3/17/2007 6:46:15 AM
However faith and hope are strong, and so I know whate'er should come is planned by He who hung the stars and set the ocean, moon and sun; That says it all, doesn't it. Sometimes the power of God does seem to leave our life in disarray until we realize that in truth it has simply moved in a way unfamiliar to us. Maybe that is how he stirs our souls to pioneer the way to Heavens shore. Beautiful write; God Bless, Lew

Exposition (Poetry) - 3/17/2007 6:21:52 AM
You pen your faith and hope extremely well, Joyce.

Love Lost (Poetry) - 12/15/2006 3:59:54 PM
Your ability to transfer emotion to the reader has been perfected, Ms. Hale. I keep coming back to search among your works for that perfection.

Wings of Hope (Poetry) - 12/8/2006 2:47:36 PM
I feared that traditional verse, rhymed and metered and perfect, had been lost to the ages, only alive in the works of those now gone; but I see 'tis not true at all.

Betrayed (Poetry) - 12/8/2006 2:39:44 PM
I look through the works of writers on AuthorsDen almost daily, but never have I found such talent. Not just this poem, but all of yours that I've read. I look forward to reading them all. I envy the way you can transfer emotion to words.

Supernatural (Poetry) - 11/27/2006 1:46:05 PM

Poets (Poetry) - 10/12/2006 2:01:16 PM
Great poem, Joyce! Sadly, not many hear the poet.

Poets (Poetry) - 10/7/2006 4:30:32 PM
Ah Joyce, I do admire poets and the deep things they write about. Sometimes the meaning is obscure, yet there is always something so beautiful and mysterious in what a poet writes. You have done a great job in how you captured the essence of a poet. God Bless Lena God Bless Lena

Wonderfully expressed tribute and insight into the mind and heart of the poet. Fee

Poets (Poetry) - 10/3/2006 9:55:05 AM
Poets live part reality, part fantasy land. So I suppose they tend to make the ugly uglier, and the lovely lovelier. Beautiful poem. Victor

Poets (Poetry) - 10/3/2006 9:11:17 AM
"Poets" The message in this poem rings loud and clear Meanwhile it has a serenity and subtleness about it. A wonderful penning! Thank you, Gwendolyn

Poets (Poetry) - 10/3/2006 8:03:58 AM
You pen a most beautiful awareness of what the poet does for humanity. It is all you say and more. Thank you for this insightful compostion, from which I gain much. I chuckle at the, "- - before our God returns and intones, Nevermore.....part, since I don't worry about God any more. I do the best I can from day to day, but methinks he worries a lot about me. confession over! - Bill

Poets (Poetry) - 10/3/2006 7:57:04 AM
Joyce, Indeed impressive; I think poets write of beauty in the midst of ugliness to make the world a little brighter for those of us who still have hope...well done! (((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

Poets (Poetry) - 10/3/2006 7:24:46 AM
You give us so many impressive thoughts to ponder in this piece, Joyce. I'd like to think that many, nay...most poets retain in their hearts the innocense of a child, joy of being alive, love, and constant hope for a better world - condenced it's called optimism. Great poem. Micke

Red Rose (Poetry) - 10/3/2006 5:34:43 AM
A beautiful tribute to a beautiful flower. A rose my wither and die, but the memory of it remains......M

One of the best ever in a tribute to the gratest of flowers. And, your photo is extremely elegant. This is lovely compositon... flowing right into our hearts and out and around the reddest of roses. Warm and wonderful. - Bill

Red Rose (Poetry) - 10/2/2006 5:02:50 PM
It is true that the rose is the symbol of love to all, from it's beauty and scent to the sharp prick of it's thorns it even mimics loves reality. Fee

Red Rose (Poetry) - 10/2/2006 4:39:46 PM

Red Rose (Poetry) - 10/2/2006 2:25:02 PM
Joyce I have to agree with Victor below This has to be the finest depiction of the rose and entwined love, that I have ever had the pleasure to read.. Your word usage is sublime, and your aliteration is beautiful Blessings Peter

Red Rose (Poetry) - 10/2/2006 2:04:44 PM
The beauty of this poem is surpassed only by the beauty of the rose...or maybe vice versa! A wonderful tribute... Micke

Red Rose (Poetry) - 10/2/2006 1:53:47 PM
Joyce, BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! "But oh, lost love will never forget the brilliant color and heavenly scent, the blush of blooming promise true and silkeny petals opulent that will other loves forever obscure."

Red Rose (Poetry) - 10/2/2006 1:26:59 PM
That's the finest ode I have ever read about a rose. Very well written. Victor

Poets' Underground (Poetry) - 9/23/2006 9:59:15 AM
"I have arrived at the conclusion that Poets are the Underground. The voice in the utter-darkness void where wisdom may be found." How true! How true! All governments fear the writer, the poet. There is enlightenment in all the words penned! And that is as it should be! Great poem; great message!! Micke

Poets' Underground (Poetry) - 6/8/2006 10:01:17 PM
I'm with Nordette Joyce. This is such a beautifully written from the heart, poem. And everything you say here is true too. This reminds me of my poem The Song Of The Soul. That is what poetry is to me, the song of the soul, and it doesn't matter if the song is dark, serious, light, funny; it doesn't matter. Poetry is what our souls sing, when they have something to say. May the Lord Jesus bless you, and those whom you love, and be with you always, and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your little sister, Barbie "If I have to be this girl in me, Then I have the right to be."

Now-you-see-'em, Now-you-don't (Poetry) - 5/5/2006 9:15:21 PM
Let's go together. I love the way you express this, Joyce. Thank you. Love and peace to you, Regis

Now-you-see-'em, Now-you-don't (Poetry) - 5/5/2006 8:43:38 PM
When I finally am laid to rest, I don't want people crying and saying why. I want them to be happy for me, because I'm going to be with our Lord forever. I want them to be happy for me, because now I can finally be happy. I'd like to have someone there playing the bagpipes, but not a funeral dirge tho, but a very happy Irish dance tune. Our physical death is only another phase in our journey to the Lord. Thanx Joyce for sharing. Light yet serious. May the Lord Jesus bless you, and those whom you love, and be with you always, and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your little sister, Barbie "If I have to be this girl in me, Then I have the right to be."

Y E S !! Don't suppose it will work out, but I'd love to have a New Orleans funeral. "Oh when the saints go marching. . ." Louder & roudier the better, right? L i f e is what matters. Who we are n o w. "Oh when the saints. . ." Ain' no saint {that's for sure}, but I love the joyful sound. Girl, we are goin' out s i n g i n'. Raising a Toast, 'Pea' <3

Now-you-see-'em, Now-you-don't (Poetry) - 4/24/2006 3:39:36 AM
That's how they'd do it in New Orleans, I've been told...a party and dancing to bid adieu to the dearly departed. Nicely done!

Good one, Joyce. After all, what can be better than going home to Heaven to be with the live forever in a Kingdom where there are no more tears, hatred, pain and suffering? 'Tis a time for rejoicing, all right. Lena

Now-you-see-'em, Now-you-don't (Poetry) - 4/15/2006 7:47:48 AM
Joyce I agree with your premise, give me a good old fashioned Irish Wake everytime...hallelujah ! Death is a time of rejoicing....the transition from flesh and pain to spirit and bliss ...:) Peter

Now-you-see-'em, Now-you-don't (Poetry) - 4/14/2006 10:42:28 AM

Sound like Janis Joplin, Joyce, and in fact, that is what she did. She left money where her friends could throw here a sixties' style orgy of fleshy desires.

I am saving this poem, Joyce. Excellent! ~~Nordette

Poets' Underground (Poetry) - 4/6/2006 10:52:53 AM
A good modus vivendi and operandi if ever there was one, Joyce! The feel-good factor is here and the inspiration to keep on keepin on! Bless you and thank you. Kate xx

An uplifting ode of faith, Joyce. Thank you for sharing your gift. Love and peace to you, Regis

And oh what a joy it is be treated to J. P. Hale's poetic insights. She helps us different-drum faster out of pure delight Realize that being the Underground is both duty and honor. A n d we are part of something bigger and stronger. Besides, we get to meet h e r, if only in cyber space. Write her bad rhymes that make her wince, "What a disgrace!" [??!} 'Pea' <3 ~~~ {PS: Thanks for your warm and thoughtful words of encouragement. Sis'ah 'Pote' }

Poets' Underground (Poetry) - 3/16/2006 9:07:38 PM
A truly profound and inspired observation. You state with illuminated eloquence and accuracy a truth that many, rather oddly, prefer not to acknowledge. The image of the photo complements the sense of the poem perfectly. Much gratitude.

A poet's heart revealed in verse Words written true, sharp and terse In an Imaginary world we immerse Alive,fearing not an earthly hearse. God Bless, Luke

Poets' Underground (Poetry) - 3/12/2006 6:18:37 AM
Dear Joyce, You very effectively blend two different rhyme schemes into a single poem. And I love it when poets write about the art of poetry. Love & Light, Joseph

Poets' Underground (Poetry) - 3/10/2006 5:09:50 PM
You have captured and shared the "soul" of the poet, Joyce. Thank you for this gift. Love and peace, Regis

"Poets' Underground" says it with the soft voice of wisdom, and the visionary colors of the rainbow of love. I salute You, Poet! Andre Emmanuel Bendavi ben-YEHU

Poets' Underground (Poetry) - 3/10/2006 4:32:28 AM
Oh you've hit it on the money and who else to read but a poet for the truth most of the time anyway. A true poet never lies I believe

Poets' Underground (Poetry) - 3/9/2006 6:02:26 PM
Yes, I liked the idea of Poets as an underground force. You have said it all so well. You make me feel as though I belong to a secret society of poets. Janet

Poets' Underground (Poetry) - 3/9/2006 12:10:29 PM
Joyce, this is one of the best poems on poets that I've read. You captured the essence of what poets are all about! Beautifully written in glorious rhyme and meter! Splendid work! Kudo's! eT

Poets' Underground (Poetry) - 3/9/2006 9:55:29 AM

Joyce, As Jerry says, Gotta love it. And I do. I'm glad to be part of the underground! :) (((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

Poets' Underground (Poetry) - 3/9/2006 7:43:05 AM
Their hand and pen writes freely As you have done here, Joyce, and may poets' hands and pens write freely - evermore.

Poets' Underground (Poetry) - 3/9/2006 7:27:05 AM
Yep, we be a weird lot us'un's poet folks. LOL Of course all that you say is true, poets have changed the course of history, have recorded history for prosparity. Weeped with those who needed weeping over and laughed their asses off when there was that call. So, yes, I maintain that poets AND prose writers are the lifeforce of the ages. Well done, Joyce P. Hale.

The City's A Woman... (Poetry) - 3/7/2006 3:25:13 AM
Just beautiful, Joyce. This is such a descriptive painting in words, of what a city actually is. And yes, I agree, with all the fluidity of the city, the city is a woman true. Thnx for sharing this Joyce. Now that I am in my apartment, I will have more time to devote to writing and reading. May the Lord Jesus bless you, and those whom you love, and be with you always, and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your little sister, Barbie "If I have to be this girl in me, Then I have the right to be."

By Design (Poetry) - 3/7/2006 3:18:03 AM
Aberjhani said it wise and true Joyce. And I i agree with what you have written here too. In my poems lately I share what I believe to be beautiful, outstanding love of each other and of Nature. These things exist in harmony, and that is part of a very grand design, by our Father who made all things, and through His Son Jesus, made all things possible. Thnx for sharing this with us, Joyce. Very nice write from your heart and soul. May the Lord Jesus bless you, and those whom you love, and be with you always, and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your little sister Barbie, "If I have to be this girl in me, Then I have the right to be."

Your "try" at this form turned into one spectacular accomplishment. In the words of an old friend, "We don't get very far in this life without being able to laugh at ourselves." Thank you so much for sharing the laughter through these brilliant lines. Aberjhani

A grand design to be sure, Joyce. Now the human element of this design needs some tinkering with.

By Design (Poetry) - 2/23/2006 4:36:45 AM
Joyce, Yes, yes, yes! A beautiful, beautiful write--thank you for the inspiration this morning. (((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

It's a Grand Design, indeed, Joyce - and it's also grand when poets write so eloquently about it.

You have me laughing this morning, Joyce - especially about the cat barf, and the dogs eating shoes - something I live with every day around these parts. I hope you're staying warm. And you're right, it could always be worse.

Septcouplet for today (Poetry) - 2/16/2006 5:15:08 AM
Joyce, And I thought I had trouble!!!!! LOL Hopefully, most of this is fiction...but have a feeling it's not. You're ahead of the game if you can laugh. BRILLIANT write! (((HUGS))) and love, and prayers, Karla. :)

absolutely love it. You are definitely not lost with words like that.

Lost (Poetry) - 12/7/2005 6:26:38 PM
A muse is like a genie in a bottle. They only appear when you truly need them. This poem does not struggle one bit without her. I am inspired through your words. She'll most likely be back when you truly need her. She's off with the genie granting wishes to those writers less talented. You're found, Joyce, not lost! Love the picture! Sage

Lost (Poetry) - 12/7/2005 12:51:20 PM
Just as I was about to comment I saw the name Petrosky. Sounds very eastern european,like polish or russian? But great poem saying what we all think at times, but can't express with such poetic skill!

The Stage (Poetry) - 12/7/2005 12:20:48 PM
Wonderful expression of the "dance of time." Compelling verses, Joyce. Love and peace to you. Regis

Ah, shoot! I always marvel at you folks out there in cyberspace that write about your Muses being on strike, but the words you use to explain all that to us are simply "Muse-inspired."

Lost (Poetry) - 12/7/2005 10:01:21 AM
Wow! Everyont should lose their muse if they can write like this!;-) Superb poem Joyce!

The Stage (Poetry) - 12/3/2005 8:10:58 AM
This bittersweet dance of remembrance shines with the warmth of love and wisdom that fill every line. If the meaning of life truly is in the journey, then certainly loving "away the days and nights" is not a bad way to make such a trip:-)

The Stage (Poetry) - 12/3/2005 7:45:15 AM
A very good question, Joyce - I often wonder the same.

The Stage (Poetry) - 12/3/2005 7:24:17 AM
I don't recall either. Do you suppose the children of today will grow to our age and look back wishfully on THEIR good old days? If they will that can only meant that the world has sunk to untold of lows. Nice poem.

Wings of Hope (Poetry) - 11/4/2005 9:51:52 AM
Enjoyed this poem. It also made me think of my mother, who's still alive, 78 yrs old and recovering from stomach cancer, but used to often say the quote, "Be still and know that I am God." Thank you, Joyce. ~~Nordette

The grace and exultation of these inspired lines places the hand of the reader inside that of the poet and allows him to share an extraordinary moment of healing transcendent vision. Thank you for this special flight through skies of wonder and faith divine.

Wings of Hope (Poetry) - 10/25/2005 1:41:08 PM
Echoing from eternity the sounds of "Wings of Hope" awake humanity to think and chart new flying plans to enjoy the reality of a soaring life.
