Birth of a Dragonfly (Poetry) - 8/14/2007 8:48:22 AM
I like the poem. Why: it is not a "romantic" description of the dragon fly but it shows realistically the struggle to survive that every living creature faces.

So delicately her beauty unfolds for all to gaze upon. Well written and very descriptive piece, enjoyed.....

isn't it sad all in the name of progress

And not just the animals, the citizens of Florida are being overrun by Snowbirds from the Northern climes.........and from the south, the illegals.........it's rare to find a native Floridian anymore. I have an Aunt in Bradington (formerly a Buckeye--see?). Sad, Texas is being overrun, too.........I moved here 24 years ago, but consider myself (mostly) a Texan. A powerfully poignant piece, well written.
(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

This is happening all over the country and not just Florida. A sad and hurried pace. I see forest animals foraging in the suburbs having been force from their natural habits by man's progress. Super Highways built over quaint country roads making long enjoyable Sunday drives a nightmare. Gigantic Supermarket and Retail Chains replacing our nostagic Mom and Pop Variety Stores. When will it all end ? Progression will eventually kill us. Love the write and your sentiments are right on.

I am not fifty (YET), but I am aheadin' in that general direction (in ONLY five years...GASP, where does ALL the time go??)! And am already sufferin' from arthritis pains....GRRR!! Stupid arthritis...Can't get around as well as I used to; therefore I write! (And work, so I can pay my bills! GRRR! LOL At least I HAVE a job; many people don't, especially IF they're older OR disabled~)
I love this; this is precious! Thanks for growing old gracefully (wish I were; my mind is like a kid, but my body is telling me otherwise..you're gettin' OLD, lady...)! May I do the same when I reach 50 in five years...
(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :D

The visuals playing throughout this piece upon the water are tantalizing to the senses.
You have captured both the light and sound upon the water in a mesmerizing mix. Great read.

Along the Bank of the Hudson at Low Tide (Poetry) - 7/3/2002 6:11:55 PM
My first time here, I ran across this moving saga of this time-worn river. This one flows well, fitting the theme of this aged waterway, and is rich with wonderful metaphors. Thanks for the read.
