Both of the excerpts are great. My old bugaboo, "..these waters for [it is] own." needs to be edited out.

A Cydonian Mission (Short Story) - 6/16/2005 6:41:38 AM
A truly interesting story, Lonnie; and very well done. Liked the ending very much, and your Audio Presentation, too.

A Cydonian Mission (Short Story) - 6/15/2005 3:50:57 PM
Then I read the first sentence I almost did not read this story. I would have missed out on a very well-written, GOOD tale of revenge had I not. You tend to your craft well, very well, Mr. Carpenter, I could find nothing I would change. Of course, I am also the worlds worst editor. What I found so endearing about this story, besides the fact that you are a hell of a short story writer, is that you did not fall into the trap that so many writers would have with this story. That trap being that these are aliens but they are good and mean us no harm. In this story, they indeed, did mean harm. Congratulations on a good story!

Showdown At Shamrock (Short Story) - 12/25/2004 7:20:01 PM
Love a good western vignette and this one was very good! I can relate to that boy somewhat, having been raised on a big ranch with a long history of western lore. I will be reading more of your work, keep it up. -Lonesome Phil

The Language Of The Trees (Poetry) - 6/26/2007 3:31:18 PM
You know what Lon? I actually think the trees do have a language all of their own. If we could only pick up the vibrations, we could hear what they say to each other. This is a sweet poem of imagination, and remeberance of what was done beneath 'the ole oak tree'. Thank you, Lon, for sharing this part of your life and mind. 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 sister, Barbie

Very easy to imagine Aesop reading this delightful poem parable and smiling at how very good and true and wise it is:-) Thank you.

Mike The Minnow (Poetry) - 1/7/2006 8:35:05 AM
I picture this as a great 'learn from your experience' allegory for a children's book. Do you know a good illustrator?

Mike The Minnow (Poetry) - 1/7/2006 5:36:41 AM

Country Angel Band  (Poetry) - 9/20/2005 3:48:06 AM
I don't usually comment on songs because I find that they are difficult foor me to read and understand. Not so this one. Excellent.

A Boy And A Train (Poetry) - 7/31/2005 6:53:58 PM
Katy told me this was exceptional and she was right. The internal rhyme balances the end rhymes. The poem has the quality of speed without ever feeling rushed. Splendid!

Along Came You (Poetry) - 7/18/2005 7:32:16 AM

Why I Write (Poetry) - 7/16/2005 7:59:35 AM
"The walls of earth are littered With the ruins of fallen stars..." My god, Lonny... it feels slightly ridiculous to post a quote from this entirely quotable work! Those lines are poetic magic, 'tis true... this whole piece is. I cannot, in solemn truth, remember being pleasantly punched in the gut by a poem... I'm keeping it... it will remind me that great works of art are worth striving for. Not one word here is enough... you'd have to slip into my head to know how magnificent I think this is. Sigh... Damn great, I'd say! katy xox

Along Came You (Poetry) - 7/16/2005 7:53:49 AM
ooooooo... that is one marvelous, romantic "hook" you've got, Lonny. As always, but sweeter each time, your rhythm and rhyme are infectious and toe-tapping, something I admire in a good read like this. Charlene inspires, you write... a dynamic duo if ever there was one! I can hear your heart when you write these lovely dedications. Great one! katy xox

Along Came You (Poetry) - 7/16/2005 5:28:53 AM
A marvelous ode to love, Lonnie.

Along Came You (Poetry) - 7/16/2005 3:27:04 AM

Fort Peck Mystery (Poetry) - 6/17/2005 5:36:46 AM
Londis, this is marvelous, both the poem and your recitation. Indeed you do have a great audio voice. And I like the music in the background too. Compelling narrative poem you have here, sir. I'm saving it. ~~Nordette PS: I have audio of a recent recitation of my own at this link: I warn you, the language is purple. :-D

Why I Write (Poetry) - 6/12/2005 5:03:12 PM
Londis, you have me weeping, not only from your disturbing, disributing piece, but, because, you've nailed it, all of It. I once asked a wise man if he thought fiction was real, he replied all that is thought is reality... What you write of is memories, previous realities, previous we's... Do you think Mankind will be happy with his 'rocket ride'? Once he/she starts its journey? Adam Duritz comforts me with his voice as I contemplate 'coming closer' to God.

Londis I have been in heartbreak city for many years, because of a mother's lost love for me. But I have forgiven her, and have found love and accepteance in my family and friends. This is a very good work Londis, thnx for sharing. Also thnx for your review of my piece Mother's Tortured Mind. May the Lord Jesus bless you, and those whom you love, and be with you always, and at your side constantly.

Why I Write (Poetry) - 6/10/2005 9:28:44 PM
Nordette, thanks so much for your comment and most of all for all the help. I would not have gotten this far without your help. I never know if the computer problems I have are from the machine itself or the nut on the keyboard, but it usually proves out to be the latter. LOL. If I can keep things running smoothly, I will definitely do more recitation...I have poems justmaching to be read aloud. hugs. Thanks to all my other supporters also I love and appreciate all of you.

Why I Write (Poetry) - 6/10/2005 9:06:09 PM
Londis, your recitation is excellent. So moving. You must do more of these. You have a wonderful voice and compelling reading style. The poem is beautiful too. I see you've taken down "Pretty Past-Time." I'm glad you've got everything working now! ~~~Nordette

You make me miss my "ramblin" days, Londis, and new horizons. Maybe it's time I got out of my rut. Great write, and I know this is a song 'cause I can hear it in my head...

Why I Write (Poetry) - 6/10/2005 6:54:36 PM
"...God and I are one..." This is the jist of it, Londis. We share the Creator's DNA, therefore creation itself. Fantastic write!!

Lovely song Londis!! Love Tinka

Heartbreak City (Poetry) - 6/3/2005 3:14:19 AM
I love this metamorphosis, Londis, and totally agree that it has an upbeat, swinging country feel and tempo to it. Nothing like using the obstacles of the past to turn into stepping stones to a brighter and more well-meant future. This is of great encouragement to those who perhaps are not able to see beyond the pain at the moment. I like the transition and the positivity - also the concept is good. And very good it is to meet you, too! Thank you for visiting my page. Kate x

Maybe you can find where Elvis is hiding and he can do a "Heartbreak city in the Heartbreak Hotel." It'd work for me. Good song, man.

Thanks so much for all the information. You have done a wonderful job with this piece! There are so much information packed into this piece of history of the music, and it is so well-researched and well-presented. I'm saving this one to my library. Good job indeed!!!!! I've often thought that it is about time that there should be another rock singer, that is why I'm rooting for Bo Bice in the American Idol. I hope everyone will see his true talent. He's going to be great. We need another rock singer to rock this world awake. It's about time. Please watch the American Idol on Tuesday at 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time, 9 Central, and vote for Bo Bice. He's my rock n roll idol. Sandie May Angel a.k.a. Sandie Angel :o) Sandie May Angel a.k.a. Sandie Angel :o)

The Sweetest Past-Time (Poetry) - 5/16/2005 5:35:23 PM
Ahhhhhhh... what a heart-breaker you are, Lonny, my friend. There's nothing "out-of-style" about love songs and if you seranade Charlene, shes' a lucky woman, indeed. Now you have me imagining the two of you "spooning" on the porch, iced cold lemonade nearby, making googly eyes at each other. (giggle)... Sigh... how sweeeeeeeeet! Promise me you will be serious about doing some recording... your songs and ONLY you to sing them is very charming. YEp... katy xox

On The Road Of Life (Poetry) - 5/11/2005 12:56:14 PM
Lonny, me sweet, the only thing missing from this very winning song is your voice singing it! Think I'm kidding? When I heard you sing it left an indelible imprint and this one should join the others on a CD, so I can share it and you can get rich being a talented creator of poetry and song.

You brought back memories, I was weened on Hank Williams and Jimmy Rodgers...

Sleeping In The Bathtub (Poetry) - 5/6/2005 3:53:13 PM
I don't know why, but the melody to "Rolling In My Sweet Baby's Arms" came to me while reading this, Londis. Certainly the opposite in meaning to your song, LOL!! If Tinka doesn't take up the challenge(and that's a rarety), I'll give it a go...

Sleeping In The Bathtub (Poetry) - 5/3/2005 5:42:15 AM

Interesting and the doctor Tom Dooley that went into Viet Nam and Cambodia died of cancer at a young age. It has been a long time since I have heard this name metioned.

M=JT (Poetry) - 1/21/2005 5:30:59 PM
HaHa Londis...I would go crazy if I only did one thing at a time. I marvel at those who can hold their interest and focus on just one thing. Great write, though you certainly point out the (now obvious) error of my ways. (laffin) Take care, Sherry

M=JT (Poetry) - 1/21/2005 4:45:59 PM
Ha! This is not just hilarious, Lonny, me sweet, it's a had-to-be-written "ditty" indeed! You have such a marvelous pen for rhyme and meter... always tap my toes, bob my head and there's that ever-present grin (GRIN) hehe... katy xox.

It takes a great being to see the good and the spirit of humankind; and takes courage to show one's heart. You have them all, and your kindness is that - that inspires - and becomes a paragon. Happy productive 2005. Eva Black, BFA

The Calf -Path (Poetry) - 11/15/2004 1:17:12 PM
Salutations and Benisons to Poet Sam Walter Foss. "The Calf -Path" leads the way to profound thoughts on Justice. I have learned through the lines of this poetic-philosophic-teleological masterpiece. My gratitude and respect to the author of "The Calf -Path", and my Most Reverent gratefulness to Poet Londis Carpenter for posting this scented Flower from the Garden of Poet Sam Walter Foss. Healthy Life to All. Andre Emmanuel Bendavi ben-YEHU

Andre (Poetry) - 11/15/2004 3:55:36 AM
Lonny, you have honored a most honorable and fine human being most honorably! He is, by any measure, one of the kindest and most sincerely fine people on the whole of this Den. His words are always welcome and his heart and thoughts, so pure and magical. I tip my hat to your piece and to his being. Wonderful writing! katy xox. p.s. and I have some "catching up" to do with you, I see. (smile) katy xox.

Andre (Poetry) - 11/14/2004 9:35:52 AM
And honor him you do, Londis. I asked Andre, once, what his name meant. He told me it meant "The Living One in The Presence of the Man Son of A Friend of the Son of Time/Eternity". Isn't that beautiful? And it suits him, as you so eloquently penned. With Andre's help and thoughts of unity, I, too, think Mankind can and will improve. I've been rereading Andre's work with a clearer eye. I've had his 'A Dream' up for the last twenty-four hours, contemplating, thinking, and dreaming that one day we will fly 'home', on the winds of Love. The best of life to you, Londis, my friend. Erin

Achieving Inner Peace (Poetry) - 11/14/2004 7:33:13 AM
Delightful wit, Londis! Bravo!

A most sensible response to those wise words of that Guru... though I am sure perfectionism is more stressful than "unfinished business"?! You sound like a man after my own heart - I loved your Biog. And you may not only be mellow for another few days, but terribly green as well!! Good job it is not Lent! TY Kate

Achieving Inner Peace (Poetry) - 11/13/2004 6:40:37 AM

Thanks everyone for your generous comments. Halloween has always been one of my very favorite holidays. Here is hoping that each or you on AD have a great one. And...Katy, don't be robbing those little trick-or-treaters of their treats. LOL

NancyThe Hitchhiking Nurse (Poetry) - 10/31/2004 7:15:10 AM
Lonny, you have an immense talent, a rare gift, for writing these narrative poems. Your subject matter here and in others' just brings me in, I quite leave the room, entirely. I kept cursing the screen because I had to scroll down and I just wanted to stay glued! (smile) You have no gaps, no leaps beyond the story... it's completely satisfying. You know you've please readers when the poem is really long and at the end they want it to keep going. Great stuff! katy xox.

NancyThe Hitchhiking Nurse (Poetry) - 10/30/2004 10:13:52 AM
Well written Londis!! Love Tinka

NancyThe Hitchhiking Nurse (Poetry) - 10/30/2004 5:58:31 AM
This is an outstanding write! Leaves the reader wondering if this is a true ghost story?

God Played Guitar (Poetry) - 10/24/2004 2:08:16 PM
(((londis))) WOW! an awesome write with a profound underlying message. BRAVO! (((HUGS))) and love, karla. :)

God Played Guitar (Poetry) - 10/24/2004 10:40:13 AM
Londis, you've put together in this poem in a subtle way a message that some people forget, God is sensitive to our human condition and did not design us to all be the same. Neither does he want us under a bushel, miserable, sharing nothing of ourselves. Your poem speaks to more than that, but that would require too much writing. Way to go!

God Played Guitar (Poetry) - 10/24/2004 9:55:38 AM
Yes! Lonny, to my mind, this is a marvelous cheer for never letting what may be the very best, silence or intimidate others from still making their own 'life music'... it isn't a competition, this life stuff, it's a moving along the path to where we are going. You make commentary so accessible and affirming. love it... katy xox.

God Played Guitar (Poetry) - 10/24/2004 9:50:44 AM
Hehehehehe thank you can only laugh....I love my music "country" most of all!! Love Tinka

God Played Guitar (Poetry) - 10/24/2004 7:22:10 AM
The impact of this one is fantastic and well said. I was thinking this morning it would be nice if people understood somedays your just sad........great write!

EASTER CHICK (Poetry) - 10/9/2004 9:50:05 AM
Jaysus, Lonny, I saw the title of this and wondered (just briefly) if you were gettin' 'cheeky'... (think 'naughty'.. hehe). I can't deny the others' here... eating the Easter chick could cause a young'n a bit of chaos... the poetry is A-One, hilarious... I'm wondering if it might not be a more 'visually' appealing giggle to a bit older bunch... say... 10 - 12 yr olds. I mean to help... not criticize. I'm bursting with excitement that you're on to yet another book! Fantastic! katy xox.

More Tiny Verses From My Tiny Tots Book (Poetry) - 10/9/2004 9:44:24 AM
"Showers" and "Travel" made me giggle just a teeny bit longer, but I wouldn't dream of being selective, for fear I'd diminish the whole of this page. Lonny... you and your marvelously creative mind are a contribution to the future... to write for children ensures for us all that humans of quality will always exist. Your "inner child" is really a DOOZY! hehe... thank god you keep track of it and listen! katy xox.

EASTER CHICK (Poetry) - 10/1/2004 5:44:35 PM
Jeez, Londis, trying to scare the poor babes? ;) Still, it's better than pockets full of posies and ashy disease. Post a few more, would you, all together so we can get a feel for the essence of the book. I do like the twist of egg, chick and eating, but that's me... :)

EASTER CHICK (Poetry) - 10/1/2004 11:31:00 AM
haha, i'm not sure kids will thrill to the idea of eating the easter chick but the message is a real one
