Critics (Poetry) - 10/11/2011 10:52:58 PM
Ha ha. I always ignore critics. That's because I don't write for them, I write for me. I think perhaps critics are to attached to the theory of writing instead of the art of writing. But not all critics are though. You must have come across some bad ones.

Witty and on the money, George;

When She Sings (Poetry) - 9/5/2011 9:03:31 PM
Lovely ode to Cyndi! I've written the same for the country singers Trace Adkins and Jamey Johnson. It is such a blessing and gift to be able to touch people not only with your words, but your voice, too. Nice poem!

Monuments (Poetry) - 8/21/2011 7:43:30 PM
As I read down the lines, First word that comes to mind is erosion... What is man made never stands the test of time... only knows how to endure and rise again, by the man power which made the structure... Thanks for sharing...
Sunny Afternoons (Poetry) - 8/21/2011 5:40:33 PM
Beautiful! I wonder, would I find behind that fence, the house that Jack built.....I like the way each line morphs into the next...clever and effective.
Besides which, the poem makes so much sense!
City Dreams (Poetry) - 8/21/2011 5:37:55 PM
I would love to see that day. As the green fields and trees disappear, will more people begin to long for them?
I live in the country, surrounded by trees. I wish I could share it with everyone.
Monuments (Poetry) - 8/21/2011 5:33:54 PM
The monument to you or me will not last for eternity,
but "grain by grain" will fade away and disappear like yesterday.
Hey, that's not bad, is it?
Seriously, I admire your poetry in "Monuments." Makes me think of a Bible verse (out of context, though)--"This too shall pass away."
Man himself is only here for a short season until he disappears from earthly life and fleeting fame. Your echoing of the ending words in each verse gives the illusion of passing time. Good writing!

i have the same dream, George.
for this thoughtful, sensitive write.
