Yes..no harm trying, trying always does good..be in when recovering from illness or taking up some new assignment
New Journey (Poetry) - 12/6/2013 12:29:54 PM
Unforgettable, that's what you are... Don't tell me you don't remember THAT one!! :) Nothing to do with age, George, as life moves so fast we're all in danger of losing so much of what we have hitherto thought as precious. Each day is a new journey and strangers just friends we've not yet met. You will never be 'has been' as you are perpetual 'are'. Your legacy in words will remain a constant. Will await your next volume in the post with great pleasure... Love you! xx
New Journey (Poetry) - 12/6/2013 11:52:33 AM
There are always new friends to make, old acquaintances to be renewed and new adventures, however big or small, to bring happiness to ones life. Your heart is young, George and that is one of the most important ingredients for a fulfilling life. Joy Hale

Gossip (Poetry) - 12/3/2013 7:16:58 AM
Gossipers of always been word bullies when you get right down to it. A little misinformation gossiped about can cause great harm. Yet it seems to be the spice of life that never gets really stamped out. I wonder how much all of this cell phone talking I see people doing is gossip?

Air (Poetry) - 11/29/2013 6:42:25 AM
Yes, we know we have only so much air… So we should never abuse or waste it.
Air (Poetry) - 11/28/2013 3:09:42 PM
We tend not to think of that thin envelope of atmosphere that envelops our world and protects us from so much. We use it, we breathe it and don't think of it. But if deprived of it we would be gone from the face of the world. It's dangerous actions scare us and its gentleness sometimes lulls us. In some science fiction scenarios it is even taxed. Ask us again some other time and we may not even think of any of this. Bob

Crowded Thoughts (Poetry) - 11/26/2013 10:24:46 AM
Crowded thoughts. All seeking attention at the speed of light. We can attend them or not, but if we don't, they haunt us.
Crowded Thoughts (Poetry) - 11/26/2013 9:30:26 AM
Many do not realize that some pains stay with us for the rest of our lives. Lonliness also contributes to our pain. Where there is a void that cannot be filled, our thoughts turn to sadness... it is only natural. Thank you for sharing your loving heart with us here on the den. Your writing always gives me pause to think and ponder your words, the sign of an excellent writer.

I was in the 3rd grade on that horrible day, the teacher got
a phone call in the classroom... she broke down in tears and we all we dismissed from school... Young and old alike mourned that day...
Wonderful tribute to a fine man who is now gone but not gone in our hearts...

Love (Poetry) - 11/23/2013 10:54:38 AM
Love is forever beautiful George and forever an eternity

a fine tribute
Fateful Day (Poetry) - 11/22/2013 9:05:35 AM
Yes, it was a great waste of a great leader with all too human, faults, but a good heart and a great mind. A mind blown apart by a sad ideologue with no life except to cause pain and hardship on those he touched.
I'm certainly grateful that Johnson was able to push through Congress some of the Kennedy reforms that this country so desperately needed at that time. I'm sad that the space race, now that the Russians are sharing launches with us, no longer commands the kind of financial commitment that we need to pull ourselves out of the depression we are in as a people.

Nice bottom line George:
"And in the heavens You've sown many stars;
My God, the mysteries You've left ajar."
Magnificent World (Poetry) - 11/20/2013 8:54:15 PM
A lovely poem and it is an awakening for the reader, it helps one to
realize how Great God Is, all this magnificent Beauty in the world
that he alone has created for us all to enjoy. I enjoyed reading it.

Grief (Poetry) - 11/18/2013 9:42:52 AM
Yes, many seem to hold on to grief way too long. The sooner we face our sorrow, the quicker we can get back to life. As usual, very clear and cogent.

Is This Real (Poetry) - 11/16/2013 10:10:51 PM
Yes, George! Well done for it is real. Peace and love be with you...
Is This Real (Poetry) - 11/16/2013 12:11:44 PM
Before writing, everything was passed on verbally, including oral histories that went on for generations and were memorized. By using rhyme schemes and perfecting the wording, these long histories could be memorized in each generation, added to, and modified according to the speaker.
The drunk speaks from his unbridled mind. While the poet speaks from experience and understanding. But there is never anything better than a drunken poet. Like when the drunk broke into song, "Waltzing Matilda," in the movie, On the Beach. The song said so much.
Is This Real (Poetry) - 11/16/2013 11:26:42 AM
George, what a wonderful poem written and expressed well. Each verse
give the reader some sort of imagination to be reckoned with, is it
real or what? We often wonders but only time will tell. Thanks for
a good write today.
Is This Real (Poetry) - 11/16/2013 10:27:47 AM
From profound to amusing to confusing
to clarifying to astounding! And one of your best.
Sincerity (Poetry) - 11/16/2013 9:15:17 AM
Love the first stanza. I think the second stanza simply restates the first but not as well. In the third stanza, "is honed" seems understated. Maybe polishes or buffs or shines, something that makes the liar the doer instead of it just happening to him. Then in the last stanza, "sublime" is an understatement. I understand that sociopaths think everybody other than themselves are stupid. "For a liar knows how to be (blank)" instead of must know how to be, which makes it less passive. And "accepted" seems understated as well. I like the thought and the first stanza very much.
Is This Real (Poetry) - 11/16/2013 9:14:15 AM
I think I get it, George. Love and blessings to you,
Sincerity (Poetry) - 11/15/2013 11:10:37 AM
I enjoyed reading your well-written poem today. It is portraying
both deception and the liar really well, they goes hand in hand.
Sincerity (Poetry) - 11/15/2013 8:19:47 AM
A perfect description of the sociopaths among us. I wonder why, so often they take positions of power and control with their lies.

"Nothing clever or a put down-
Every person may see it differently.
That is why it is so important
To let your feelings be expressed freely."
Nicely said in poetic context. Every one of us was made different so we all have something different to say. As a friend once told me, "Domino, you have a flair for the obvious."
Comments (Poetry) - 11/14/2013 10:29:38 AM
Being kind of picky, I hope I have picked well.
Great insight into the poetic process where meaning can be right there in words saying something else.
Comments (Poetry) - 11/14/2013 7:34:25 AM
Your absolutely right, Geo
Every person DOES see it his\her own way
I hate it when someone ask me to explain it to them

I come into agreement with your wise and true statements, George. I don't believe in voting a party line, but vote for the candidate who I feel is most qualified for the position. I wish more people did the same. A very good and well thought out post.

Pondering (Poetry) - 11/12/2013 8:47:02 AM
I never vote party line. I always vote for individuals. Unfortunately, so many candidates have to follow the party line in order to get enough money to get elected (the biggest problem we have with elections today is what they cost).
As for survival, throughout the history of this country there are those who thought the country was coming apart almost continuously. So far that hasn't happened and there isn't any indication that it will except for those who insist that the world is coming to an end.

And left pneumatically.
A Spade (Poetry) - 11/11/2013 10:02:56 AM
Slay a lie where it lies. But don't believe everything you read, or even everything you believe. Some of it isn't true even if you've been indoctrinated since a child that it is.
Oh, and don't get angry… Get even.
A Spade (Poetry) - 11/11/2013 7:42:03 AM

The Sands Of Life (Poetry) - 10/19/2013 11:25:03 AM
Ed of small mind... so confined. We all have a unique story to tell. The question is, will it be interesting or just the boring same old, same old.
I just decided to write a book I've had on my mind for a long time about the nasty stuff we did as kids. Far wilder than Our Gang and we never got caught.
The Sands Of Life (Poetry) - 10/19/2013 9:11:18 AM

Precious Moments (Poetry) - 10/8/2013 12:13:15 AM
Good poetic memories George. However, I just came from a banquet in which Mike Huckabee was the keynote speaker. This was the message I learned from his speech, "Life today is much like driving a fast train. If you concentrate too much on what is behind you, you may miss the blessings that are in front of you. Even worse than that, you may even steer a bright future right off the tracks." Amen!

Natures Call (Poetry) - 10/4/2013 8:24:46 AM
Let her fly… Words enrich the language and were meant to enlighten rather than to horrify. My grandfather had a favorite expression, “Judas Priest,” he would utter whenever he hit his finger with a hammer. Always fearful that he would anger the Lord. Later, he just said he was, “waiting for the Lord to take him away.”
Whenever I have to pee, I have to call for help. Once done, I'm a loss for words, and fall back to sleep. ;-)
Natures Call (Poetry) - 10/4/2013 2:23:00 AM

Wow...loved it..and so true!
Creating A Poem (Poetry) - 9/23/2013 2:16:14 AM
i so agree George

John I haven't used a pen in years. I do as you do.
Creating A Poem (Poetry) - 9/21/2013 12:02:02 PM
Wow! I never though of writing a poem about writing a poem. Very cleaver George!
One thing you made me think of. These days I seldom pick up a pen. I type it in my computer and spell-check it until the very end.
Wet Dream (Poetry) - 9/16/2013 10:41:31 AM
Just my imagination at work, not reality, but it could happen.
Wet Dream (Poetry) - 9/16/2013 7:39:31 AM
I think what dwells in those depths are your subconscious.
I once spent several afternoons floating around the lake half in and out of the water buoyed by an inner tube. I brushed up against weeds in the shallow water and sometimes up against stumps, but never against any of the snapping turtles, minnows, loons, panfish, or 4 foot long muskies that plied those waters looking for something tasty to eat. The only thing that bit me was the sun.
But I did think about it…

I have asked His help, just last night in fact, and He did help me get past some pain I was experiencing, not right away, it took a little while, but He is a busy God, that I can understand...e
A Poem Is Born (Poetry) - 9/15/2013 2:13:03 PM
and you ARE the consummate poet making many poems born...e
A Poem Is Born (Poetry) - 9/14/2013 1:10:10 PM
I sort of think of poems as my children. I have hundreds of them. A thought which has some significance for me, as I have no real chidren of my own. I like this George. Bob
A Poem Is Born (Poetry) - 9/14/2013 12:40:04 PM
And a short one at that.
A Poem Is Born (Poetry) - 9/14/2013 5:18:09 AM
Thanks John I took your suggestion.
A Poem Is Born (Poetry) - 9/14/2013 3:37:35 AM
I woke up to this wonderful poem of you conjured. All is well except for the last line...
There it lies exposed,
A life created.
A poem is born,
Sterile but alive.
I would end it with, "A poem is born!" Otherwise it's excellent!
9/11 (Poetry) - 9/14/2013 3:14:56 AM
Very well written. My cousin brother too was there attending some meeting but fortunately he escaped. Feel very sad for the lives lost.

Nice tribute George. God Bless America.

Yes, like Pearl Harbor, 9/11 is a day that will go down in infamy.

Few people find a soulmate like that. You're very lucky and very grateful for that. So am I.

Stupid is as stupid does.
If you or I get beat up by a bunch crooks we don't go home and go to our banks to give them all the cash we can to bribe them to leave us alone. After all they are crooks!!! How stupid can we be???
Please don't answer that George....

No they won't lack, but we will...e
Libya (Poetry) - 9/8/2013 8:24:31 AM
Like autocratic communism, theocratic state Muslim-ism, has taken over much of the Middle East, largely through extortion and force. The global village created by the Internet has caused the people of the region to realize that the world is much more than strong religious control, however old or venerated it may seem. The result are clashes very similar to the thrust for civil rights in this country, violent at first and still going on with gay-rights, disabled rights, and women's rights to this day, now a peaceful institution.
The Middle East is going through this process and the right (not the conservative right, but what is right) will win out in the end. We just have to let it play out like we did with communism in the Soviet Union and China. Libya will be fine. We just have to let the people play it out. They will not accept a dictator again.
We must confront them when they are wrong, but not necessarily meddle in their affairs. For the truth will rise to the top, and very soon all those countries will join the rest of the world in peace and prosperity without beating them up.

Read my news article on The chaos in Libya Mr. Phillips.
The Chip Of War (Poetry) - 9/7/2013 7:23:43 PM
Think Libya. Obama did exactly what he said he would do. No boots on the ground. No casualties. No costs. One dictator pushing up daisies. A country free to decide its future.
The Chip Of War (Poetry) - 9/7/2013 6:07:31 PM

Mindless Action (Poetry) - 9/6/2013 7:15:12 PM
We know that fanatics have a purpose. Unlike many politicians who only think far enough ahead to cover the next election. Unplanned action can lead to chaos. Chaos leads to uncertainty. Lack of leadership may lead to chaos also. Really well done and thought here George.

Naked thoughts being clothed with words. I kinda chuckle everytime I think of that. Quick! Catch them critters an put somethin on'em, fer they makes us real embarrassed! Great idea George. Bob

I love the flow in this metaphorical offering, George. I find your poem symbolically meaningful. Thank you. Love and peace to you,

You certainly are a clever weaver of words. Keep 'em coming, hon!
Weaving With Words (Poetry) - 9/3/2013 9:08:28 AM
That's what I've been doing as well,George. I've been stirring the thoughts that are idle in my mind. I call it writer's block in my case. It comes and goes.
