Kinda like "time heals all wounds," huh...? -e-
Firearms (Poetry) - 5/3/2015 8:05:34 AM
Methinks it's the shooter and not the pistol. From my limited experience hunting for only five years, there's a big difference between shooting a rifle and a pistol. One has to be very steady to shoot a pistol well. The older I get the unsteady I get.
I agree that ammunition may get old. However, I've heard that gunpowder just gets more volatile and easily set off. As far as the pistol being old, it may be dirty, but if it hasn't been fired so much that it is worn, metal never gets old. Just people and their ideas.

This reminds me of my brothers sitting around and talking while they cleaned their rifles. Great memories!

Did ya ever think it might not be the weapon that misses the mark but the user...? <smile> -e-
Firearms (Poetry) - 5/2/2015 4:19:56 PM
Seems you are well protected. You don't have to have a weapon that is a sure shot, when you are probably going to be firing point blank.
The Meek (Poetry) - 5/2/2015 7:52:24 AM
A contradiction, that's for sure. Throughout history the meek have been ground up to the grist of war. Yet they still persevere and outnumber the strong by many times over.
The Meek (Poetry) - 5/2/2015 7:06:48 AM
Right on, George. About the meek and inheritances: Translates to "you'll get pie in the sky when you die (it's a lie!).

Morning Walk (Poetry) - 5/1/2015 10:36:31 PM
I could feel the eager anticipation and flavour of this fresh new day...I hope Toby enjoyed his walk as much as you did looking forward to it...
The Meek (Poetry) - 5/1/2015 10:03:44 PM
Very thought provoking poem. A preacher once explained that meek does not mean weak. He said a calm, wise and gentle man will usually win over a bigger muscle headed moron. He will simply out smart him. Amen!
The Meek (Poetry) - 5/1/2015 12:10:12 PM
My father was a boxer and he said it's the valiant who offers the loser a hand to get back up in the ring.

Good write, George...-e-
Controlled Manner (Poetry) - 4/30/2015 11:49:49 AM
Not all expression is silenced. In fact, I find that the best expression, formed in quotable quotes, far outlasts the voice of the silencers.
Controlled Manner (Poetry) - 4/30/2015 11:39:24 AM
Amen! Spot on!
I love this.

I love morning walks. My one dog is too old. The other dog takes me too far - there is no "in-between." -- Jeff
Morning Walk (Poetry) - 4/23/2015 7:35:55 AM
Probably one of the most satisfying things in the world… A morning walk.
Morning Walk (Poetry) - 4/23/2015 7:00:06 AM
It was sunny but cold,
for my morning walk.
I had to wear my winter coat,
just to walk the dog around the block.
It was below freezing last night,
and we had flurries of snow.
I wonder if we'll have any spring.
The grass is growing, but it's to cold to mow.

Believe (Poetry) - 4/22/2015 6:36:58 AM
The first line is a bit confusing although I know what you tried to mean.
If Jesus lived, he lived a life that everyone should emulate. I am not a "doubting" Thomas, but any person who sees Jesus's life as unattainable (we are all sinners bull ship) and his death (and so called resurrection) as a way out of this miserable life (self-created by our own (sinful?) behavior), is having a great deal of self-delusion.
Probably 90% of our problems in this world would be over if we just said to ourselves, What would Jesus do? Before doing some of the destructive things we do to get ahead in this world, not that other world Jesus is supposed to be reserving for us.
Believe (Poetry) - 4/22/2015 4:31:12 AM
Eh . . . I'll take my chances, George.

Shadows Of Thought (Poetry) - 4/21/2015 7:42:05 AM
Thoughts certainly are as fleeting as shadows. We can't capture them all, but you seem to capture a great deal in your daily poetry.
Shadows Of Thought (Poetry) - 4/21/2015 6:37:19 AM
Traveling in circles,
from beginning to end,
and then back again.
It's the maze of my mind,
and the shape it's in.
Shadows Of Thought (Poetry) - 4/21/2015 6:08:47 AM
Maybe you can turn this into a song, George.
"The shadows of my thoughts when I am gone
Will brighten up your day but not for long..." :)
Shadows Of Thought (Poetry) - 4/21/2015 12:28:08 AM
Things happen and then something else happens...............crazy, huh?
Shadows Of Thought (Poetry) - 4/20/2015 4:01:09 PM
Trying to think back to analyze things sometimes is just not worth it. I know. Been there. Done that.

very wise words indeed..Hugss
Casting A Shadow (Poetry) - 4/19/2015 8:03:19 AM
I've been MRIed and it's like being x-rayed on steroids, not to mention CT scanned, so I won't. A brave new world, to be sure. But penetrating a shadow, that's another story.
I call this penetrating poetry.
Casting A Shadow (Poetry) - 4/18/2015 12:50:23 PM

You need to set a better trap, George. But I think you're fibbin' again. :)

Oh you know how and what to do, it just gets harder every year. Still cranking out good poetry, though.
Silent Mind (Poetry) - 4/18/2015 4:30:50 AM

Your writing never fails to amaze me, George!
Sounds Never Heard (Poetry) - 4/17/2015 1:25:12 PM
A hot & contested subject matter here...think I wont go there...sorry, -e-
Sounds Never Heard (Poetry) - 4/17/2015 12:57:46 PM
In this day and age with the knowledge and education that's out there, there is no excuse for an unplanned pregnancy. There is ample protection for both man and woman to prevent getting pregnant. This might sound sexist, but if a woman can't be responsible enough to make sure she doesn't get pregnant, and then gets an abortion, she should have her tubes tied. I'm not trying to absolve the man of anything, but I feel it is ultimately the woman's responsibility to make sure she doesn't get pregnant. (unless of course it's rape).
Sounds Never Heard (Poetry) - 4/17/2015 11:01:35 AM
Decisions are personal, George. Personal.
The Price To Pay (Poetry) - 4/17/2015 7:57:20 AM
I think its human nature to "check out" others, woman do it so man should be able to as well...-e-
The Price To Pay (Poetry) - 4/17/2015 7:08:19 AM
A very keen observation. It is strange, but I have found beautiful women to be the most friendly, generous, and kind. Perhaps it is because they don't have to have any pretense to be attractive. They can focus on more important things.
My three brothers all married very attractive women. I don't recall them being annoyed at having other men give their wives so much attention. On the other hand, they are all divorced.
I take Bobby McFerrin's advice: "If you want to be happy for the rest of your life, get ugly woman to be your wife." "Don't worry… Be happy!"
The Price To Pay (Poetry) - 4/16/2015 12:48:56 PM
She's mine, so they can look all they want. I'm guilty of looking at others to, but I'm hers and all I can do is run to the end of my chain and bark. It's only human, and ok to look, as long as you're just looking and not shopping.
The Price To Pay (Poetry) - 4/16/2015 10:16:25 AM
Ehhh . . . Keep your fists clenched and your mouth shut.
The Price To Pay (Poetry) - 4/16/2015 10:11:22 AM

The Fire (Poetry) - 4/16/2015 8:01:59 AM
Great imagery. But the poor folks that I encountered that have suffered severe burns can't seem to stand being wrapped up. Their remaining skin has to be free and probably the only time it isn't giving them tremendous pain is in warm water.
The Fire (Poetry) - 4/16/2015 7:17:46 AM
The Fire (Poetry) - 4/16/2015 7:14:58 AM
No doubt about it--fire evokes fear. Not a pleasant duo.
Makes me shudder to think of it.
The Fire (Poetry) - 4/16/2015 6:04:12 AM
Good thing I noticed the "..not reality"! I read it and thought, 'Oh, no!'. Then I re-read the notice at the top. Thank goodness this didn't happen to you!
The Fire (Poetry) - 4/16/2015 4:48:26 AM
awful way to die indeed...like jerry said even living is a nightmare
The Fire (Poetry) - 4/16/2015 4:29:09 AM
Horrible was to die. Even more horrible way to survive.
Drawbacks (Poetry) - 4/15/2015 8:33:38 AM
Cool write, George.
Drawbacks (Poetry) - 4/15/2015 5:23:56 AM
More wise advice from the heart of the matter. Without fools who aren't afraid to push the envelope for point out that "the King has no clothes," the world wouldn't progress.
It sure pays to have a good sense of humor when you're offhand comment comes back as some kind of an insult and be able to roll with it. It's happened to me many times. If you're curious you're bound to get in trouble.

Trouble (Poetry) - 4/14/2015 6:23:54 AM
They used the blame it on the alcohol, but I always thought it was just a belligerent streak that some guys just seemed to have that alcohol gave them an excuse for. I don't know what the excuse is these days. I always avoided the big T.
Drawbacks (Poetry) - 4/14/2015 6:21:43 AM
Laughing at oneself is the best!
Drawbacks (Poetry) - 4/14/2015 6:19:54 AM
Laughter is the best medicine, especially when we can laugh at ourselves.
Trouble (Poetry) - 4/14/2015 6:14:10 AM
I agree, George. Sometimes there is another "T" word........testosterone!!!
Trouble (Poetry) - 4/14/2015 4:09:45 AM
Mix arrogance with spirits and trouble with a T usually comes to call.
Greeting Spring (Poetry) - 4/14/2015 1:33:46 AM

Jesus Christ is in my heart. The fact that it will soon be Easter is a reason to celebrate a brand new start! It's life eternal that's what I am after. I want to live with Jesus in the hereafter. Only He can make me so happy today. Only Jesus can make me feel this way. Death does not phase me. it does not scare me at all. I welcome it in my time, for death will eventually takes us all. Why would anyone roll the dice on an ETERNAL happy ever after? Happy Easter my friend I will see you in the hereafter!

The Beauty Of Spring (Poetry) - 3/27/2015 9:03:18 AM
I'd ditch the shirt too and show off those pecs and abs to those adoring boobs.
I thought about writing about spring, too, but then got carried away and went way too far. I'd better get on the garden with you.

Good People (Poetry) - 3/24/2015 7:14:55 AM
This appears to be a lament. You must've had some bad experience with people because I found just the opposite. I keep finding good, honest people everywhere. Perhaps it is because I smell the snakes pretty quickly and get them out of my mind.
Maybe tomorrow you will smell the roses.

More wisdom coming from the master of wise. Loose words are common, but harsh anger and rebuke never got anybody anywhere.

Prose and poetry; for some of us, they are great therapy... ...and a way by which we share of our "selves" with others. Love and peace to you, George.

Life should be more tranquil as time goes by and not become more stressful and tragic.

I've read that the brain is so dumb that if you wear a fake smile for three minutes it thinks you are happy!!!

Plant the seeds,

I hate it when those weeds grow in the living room! ;-)
Yes, the seeds of knowledge are passed on through written and spoken word. And what better place to experience the poet's gift than in our homes.
Plant The Seeds (Poetry) - 3/18/2015 5:10:08 AM

Not Many Toys (Poetry) - 3/17/2015 4:46:01 AM
With young struggling parents and a father who always spent too much on cars by twin brother and I envied other kid's toys. For example, while we learned to ride a bicycle by going to a friend's house one day, we didn't get on until we were nine and had to use our own money from our savings account to buy used ones. We finally got a train set. About that time our uncle that a train set up in a room with five different trains going at the same time. We often had to share one item. We were resourceful and often played with sticks and garbage and covers and other devices that we made ourselves from scraps. We sold Christmas cards to get a BB gun and we shared.

There is a great joy in having a train.
Your heart would sing.

Not Many Toys (Poetry) - 3/16/2015 4:06:44 PM
I have to say train sets are cool. You could probably find one for nothing on eBay what have you! It would be fun!
Not Many Toys (Poetry) - 3/16/2015 11:36:32 AM
It's never too late, George! Why not buy the toys you never had and make up for all the joys as yet to experience? Can think of worser ways in which to invest. Rich cousins... ain't that just the truth?! :) xx
Not Many Toys (Poetry) - 3/16/2015 9:49:34 AM
When I was a little girl, I didn't even crave for toys. All I had was a stuffed pink rabbit, but that's all I wanted. I didn't need anything else then. Then as I grew older I began to look at those barbie dolls and other dolls, and toys. Each year at Christmas I had been spending more than thousand of dollars for my children to buy them toys (I think it was to make up for things that I lacked in my childhood). After my parents death, I went on a shopping spree in ebay bought box-load of stuff animals and barbie's houses and everything. I think if I see any Barbies or any toys today I would still take a moment to think of buying them.
While growing up my uncle bought a train set with mountains, tunnels, and the whole set was as large as our dining table when on full display. He claimed he had bought the set for us (the children) to play, but the only one who played it most of the time was himself. He did all the controlling and all we did was to watch how the train run. LOL!!! I guess if I ever get one set like that now at my age, I would have the same fun as he did.
Not Many Toys (Poetry) - 3/16/2015 8:28:24 AM
Being a boy I always had one special toy...LOL -e-
Not Many Toys (Poetry) - 3/16/2015 6:53:42 AM
Boys and their toys I had a Lionel 027 gauge train set when I was a kid. Sure wish I had that set today.

As my dad always said, "Women don't bother me.....I wish they would".

I know what you mean.
Women Are Women (Poetry) - 3/16/2015 1:05:18 AM
I love this! I wrote a song with this as part of the "hook": "I don't care if you can't speak English. I didn't come to bed to talk."

The language of love is just the same everywhere, no matter what gender. I have a girlfriend who didn't speak any Japanese, yet she has met a Japanese guy - the nicest of all - and married him! There doesn't seem to be any obstacles when they communicate with each other. I think love is a universal language which everybody understands.

The backstabbers in my book are weasels....and they to can be female.
The Mind Of Man (Poetry) - 3/15/2015 8:10:24 AM
yes one must be cunning and always beware of "back stabbers" ... love always wins out ...
The Mind Of Man (Poetry) - 3/15/2015 7:36:14 AM
Wonderful insight concerning your life.
A Poems Soul (Poetry) - 3/15/2015 7:21:37 AM
Poems are the verbal essence of the human spirit George. You have defined that beautifully in this rendering.. May peace and love be always with you. Jon Michael

Wolves and foxes and Backstabbers are everywhere. They are in women too, not just men.
The Mind Of Man (Poetry) - 3/15/2015 6:41:23 AM
Your poem shows experience with many. Like you, I have always been able to detect the snake in the grass and avoid it. Much preferring to associate with open, kindhearted people rather than cunning deceivers.
The Mind Of Man (Poetry) - 3/15/2015 5:36:19 AM
Laying with foxes, running with wolves, breaking bread with the upper crust, WoW! George never knew you were such a diversified man. WoW! Eh . . .
