A marvelous reflection George. Spring at last! Jon Michael
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.
The Beauty Of Spring (Poetry) - 3/26/2015 11:13:16 AM
Nothing says Spring like perky boobs...
or Summer Winter or Fall. :)

Time for the flowers to bloom.
Time for the grass to turn green.
Time to shed those winter clothes,
and let some skin be seen.

So much is lost through translation.

I'm with you on that, George. Love and peace,
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.

I happen to know a lot of good people who love me unconditionally as I love them unconditionally as well. I wish you well, my friend.

I'm both good and bad, and when I'm bad I'm better.

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

That's not quite the way Geo. Patton put it, but he
wasn't much of a poet. :)

Letting go is never easy but always worth the effort. This poem spells it out beautifully

Letting it pass is so difficult at times. I'm a purebred Finnish person........I get so emotional!!! I love the advice!!

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.

Plant the seeds,
with poems and prose.
and a garden grows.
Plant The Seeds (Poetry) - 3/18/2015 5:12:50 AM
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
You certainly have planted your seeds here and your words inspire us all

Very fine tribute to St. Patrick and the celebration of St. Patrick's Day!!!
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.
Not Many Toys (Poetry) - 3/16/2015 5:43:16 PM
There is a great joy in having a train.
Your heart would sing.
Lady Mary Ann
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.

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.

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

The Mind Of Man (Poetry) - 3/15/2015 6:44:50 AM
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 . . .

I don't always get it right, but I look for the light. Now that's a sleep that everyone should enjoy.
Words Unspoken (Poetry) - 3/13/2015 4:16:41 PM
Of course, by nine thirty, the best part of the day is gone, by then we move into after thought of what might have been.
Because, however we frame our words we can never recover time. Opinions are like ice cream they melt in the midday sun.
Words Unspoken (Poetry) - 3/13/2015 2:50:27 PM
I don't know if I'm wise or not but I sure enjoy your poetry!!!
Words Unspoken (Poetry) - 3/13/2015 9:48:44 AM
Hah! Yeah you're right, George. Sometimes the obvious becomes lost rattling around inside the readers brain.
Sandman (Poetry) - 3/13/2015 6:46:05 AM
You have to be a sharpshooter to survive the war. And you survived very well, indeed.

Casting A Shadow (Poetry) - 3/13/2015 6:27:07 AM
This is why I would rather read a book than see a movie about it. The imagination can do so much more!! Good one, George!
Sandman (Poetry) - 3/13/2015 6:24:21 AM
I admire and thank you for your service to this country. I hope you got some more rest as well.
Sandman (Poetry) - 3/13/2015 5:25:11 AM
Never actually faced combat of the severity kind, George. I am in awe of those who did and lived to talk about it To those who didn't survive I don't have words to describe how I feel.
Sandman (Poetry) - 3/12/2015 11:27:29 PM
Have you seen the movie, American Sniper...? As a sharpshooter from a past war, you might find it of interest, as interesting as I did with regards this write/read...-e-
Casting A Shadow (Poetry) - 3/12/2015 5:19:39 PM
I like this bit of poetic history!
Casting A Shadow (Poetry) - 3/12/2015 5:11:15 PM
During the war, I had a crystal set that I made it myself.
It was amazing what one could pick up on a tiny bit of radio active crystal provided one had a fairly high antennae slung on the nearest tree.
Expressing A Thought (Poetry) - 3/12/2015 2:33:43 PM
Eh . . . Thoughts are thoughts George . . .

Very well written and received!!!
Peace love and light
Blood Of An Idea (Poetry) - 3/12/2015 2:32:13 AM
Tis an idea of blood,
Founded I think in the mud,
Of a storied oldish stud,
Certainly in no way a dud,
Written by, of poetry, a blue blood...
And on a separate note, yes, that last line does tie it all together and explains it quite well, at least to me...-e-
Blood Of An Idea (Poetry) - 3/11/2015 3:28:24 PM
Agree with jerry
Blood Of An Idea (Poetry) - 3/11/2015 2:00:49 PM
interesting to end it with "prosperity it stains" ... in a spiritual sense it sure does ...
Blood Of An Idea (Poetry) - 3/11/2015 12:14:20 PM
This is a very deeply penned poem. I read much more into it. I'm proud of you, George!
Blood Of An Idea (Poetry) - 3/11/2015 11:19:29 AM
That's the write stuff. I have tried to write while falling asleep. Those ideas come, but they're hard to keep.
Blood Of An Idea (Poetry) - 3/11/2015 7:23:18 AM
A really cool write about the struggle with ideas that a writer has in his/her arsenal of thoughts. The last line really wraps it up tightly. Let's hope that those cool stains never fade from the page.
Blood Of An Idea (Poetry) - 3/11/2015 5:03:23 AM
Eh . . . Seems to me like you have it all together for this poem, George. Great symmetry and perfect rhyming. You're there man.
A Poems Soul (Poetry) - 3/10/2015 4:33:36 PM
If your in a certain mood and read the poem that matches, it will sink into your soul
A Poems Soul (Poetry) - 3/10/2015 9:52:34 AM
One of your finest, George. As deft as your subject matter, as light and as intense. You continue to go from strength to strength. xx
A Poems Soul (Poetry) - 3/10/2015 9:31:49 AM
Possibly, I am being totally thick here and missing the irony of your post.
However, your reasoning seems to have escaped me.
Your first line appears to contradict itself, in that you only have supplied two stanzas, whereas a symphony normally consists of at least parts. The equivalent of a sonata.
I note you have employed rhyming endings but have no discernible metric metre to support it.
Here is you first stanza rewritten in tri and iambic tetrameter without radically changing your meaning.
Composed like a true symphony,
with each third playing a new part.
Where words must have some meaning
their fraught intent seeks to impart.
A Poems Soul (Poetry) - 3/10/2015 7:32:20 AM
Yes, a poem is a beautiful symphony! I always listen for the oboe as I played oboe for many years. Other people might listen for another instrument but the symphony as a whole is the most wonderful thing!
A Poems Soul (Poetry) - 3/10/2015 7:10:23 AM
Poets write the poems,
their poems have a soul.
What a readers interpretation is,
A poet has no control.
A poet writes words,
Like a farmer sowing seeds.
The words come alive in the minds,
Of each person who reads.
A Poems Soul (Poetry) - 3/10/2015 6:25:32 AM
All souls interpret a poem's soul differently, and that's okay. For if the reader had the exact same mindset as the writer, there would be no point in writers of poetry or readers of poetry, at all.
That's why find poets who find fault with my interpretation of their poems disturbing. They are too self-centered to understand that we are all different and we all interpret differently. The spice of life.
A Poems Soul (Poetry) - 3/10/2015 4:18:18 AM
And your poets' soul, George, keeps giving and giving and . . .

Too many complain and do nothing about what they are complaining about. Shame on them.

I have seen better folks, as well. Really no sense in being bitter, at all.

I used to work for one of them.
Shield Of Thought (Poetry) - 3/6/2015 7:25:20 AM
Sound advice, George! I don't know the chapter and verse but in the Bible it says, "If God be for us who can be against us?". Often times I need to remind myself of this. Thank you for your lovely poem.
Bitter Folks (Poetry) - 3/6/2015 3:43:12 AM
Bitter is not better.
Shield Of Thought (Poetry) - 3/5/2015 7:58:15 PM
So true, George! I often turn to God whenever I feel bad or whenever someone is mean to me, and I prayed, and very often my prayers are answered and I would become more at peace.
When Sparks Fly (Poetry) - 3/5/2015 12:40:42 PM
You are so right, George! Nicely penned.

Very humbling, George. Thank you.

We all have those moments, or at least most of us, and to me, it was very real.
Though Surreal (Poetry) - 3/3/2015 12:57:36 PM
Honey, I do believe you appreciate the beauty each and every woman possesses. That's a good thing.

My father used to sing that song from "South Pacific", "There Ain't Nothin' Like a Dame" every time he saw a pretty woman...........my mother would jab him in the ribs with her elbow!!! LOL!!!
Though Surreal (Poetry) - 3/3/2015 10:12:29 AM
Ahhh . . . You'll have more dreams and more lovelies will populate it . . .
Gorgeous Women (Poetry) - 3/3/2015 7:54:22 AM
Wonderful poem, George ... Reminds me of that song "Girl Watcher" back in the 60's (I think) Women are no different ... we enjoy watching men too ;) Enjoyed your poem this morning, George ...
Gorgeous Women (Poetry) - 3/3/2015 6:46:55 AM
All of those gorgeous women don't bother me....I wish they would.
Gorgeous Women (Poetry) - 3/3/2015 5:17:00 AM
Absolutely George. And I have lived long enough to believe that old saying, "You never get too old to look."

it is almost impossible to avoid the reactions of our words whether written down or said. But it does help us try to be more careful and that is and should be priority one.
Watch What You Say (Poetry) - 3/1/2015 9:48:57 AM
Yes, I've experienced that often. More often a misunderstanding or the wrong expectation is more to blame than the words.
Watch What You Say (Poetry) - 3/1/2015 9:14:41 AM
Good advice, George!
Watch What You Say (Poetry) - 3/1/2015 8:45:20 AM
Right what your write, and you won't write wrong. Am I right? :)
Watch What You Say (Poetry) - 3/1/2015 7:55:52 AM
Watch what you say,
every day and every way.
Because once it's been said,
it will be a part of your HEAD!
Watch What You Say (Poetry) - 3/1/2015 7:40:35 AM
Watch what you say,
every night and every day.
Because once it's been said,
it never goes away.

Great words of wisdom from someone who is wise. Thank you George!

Say what ur sayin' or write the way you feel and do so with gusto...-e-

I have written many poems, and I have always been honest. I have been haunted throughout my life, but never by any of my poems, or any poems others write.
Catch A Thought (Poetry) - 2/27/2015 8:19:06 AM
That formula also works for me! Great write.
Catch A Thought (Poetry) - 2/27/2015 7:48:41 AM
That's catchy! As I was editing my poem for Saturday posting, I suddenly thought of another. I stopped and wrote the first stanza down. It will be my next week's poem, thanks to catching a thought. Have lost too many that way. Short-term memory isn't what it's cracked up to be. ;-)
Catch A Thought (Poetry) - 2/27/2015 7:24:10 AM
i'm glad you gave birth today ;)
Catch A Thought (Poetry) - 2/26/2015 8:39:34 PM
Catch a thought.
use a net.
It just might be,
Your best thought yet.
Ho Hum Thoughts (Poetry) - 2/26/2015 8:25:49 PM
Good thoughts...Lately I have been on a poetic sabbatical. Why? It's probably that Ho Hum Season if you will. Sing it George!
Catch A Thought (Poetry) - 2/26/2015 5:33:32 PM
I love it!
Catch A Thought (Poetry) - 2/26/2015 4:38:16 PM
I just find a picture in my photo albums and wala a poem is born from that...-e-
Ho Hum Thoughts (Poetry) - 2/26/2015 11:59:55 AM
Your last verse is very good advice, George!
Ho Hum Thoughts (Poetry) - 2/26/2015 10:24:59 AM
Personally I can do without the ho hum poem, a sequel won't work for me. Heh.Heh
A Woman (Poetry) - 2/25/2015 10:02:35 AM
Very wise words that your darling Florence would endorse, I'm sure. Really like the sense of self-knowledge and security in the fundaments of real love as well as the on-going desire for companionship this speaks of. We're never to old to engage in human warmth and comfort. Enjoy it always, George. xx
A Woman (Poetry) - 2/25/2015 5:57:34 AM
Never stop loving, always be young at heart! That's the way to be.
A Woman (Poetry) - 2/24/2015 4:43:22 PM
Funny how that works, George...it is when you are not looking that the special someone comes along. My problem was the opposite where it was the young ones that would flirt with me and I had to shake my head as they had not a lot in common with someone of my age. But of course, love has no age. Where I am at, I can honestly say I am very happy and it helps that I learned a lot along the way. I honestly wish I had paid more attention then but at least better late than never after so many years and she and I, find each other. Great write poet.
A Woman (Poetry) - 2/24/2015 2:57:23 PM
Never stop loving... Or seeking one to love!
A Woman (Poetry) - 2/24/2015 8:14:47 AM
Love has no limits on age, and there are plenty of fish in the sea.
A Woman (Poetry) - 2/24/2015 8:06:14 AM
Imagine, daydream, and she just might come along....
A Woman (Poetry) - 2/24/2015 6:59:21 AM
"If you can't be the one you love, love the one you're with." You're never too old to find companionship. And the Internet, where you are already, is a good place to start.
Last October I had the good pleasure of attending the wedding of a friend of mine who had had two long-lasting marriages and children with the first, but found herself alone and lonely. In her 80s but still very vibrant, she married a fellow octogenarian and I think they will live happily ever after.
A Woman (Poetry) - 2/24/2015 6:37:21 AM
You're never too old, George. Go get 'em, tiger!
A Woman (Poetry) - 2/24/2015 5:27:08 AM
I understand you perfectly, George. To be alone is a lonely thing.

As troubling times approach...they become water under the bridge and are soon somewhat forgotten.
Speachless (Poetry) - 2/22/2015 7:16:09 AM
smart to take the time to reevaluate ...

Well, Birthday Boy, I'm glad those times of being speechless don't last long!
Speachless (Poetry) - 2/19/2015 10:59:59 AM
You speechless...? I don't of it believe...(and a VERY Happy Birthday to you my young friend, George...) -e-
Speachless (Poetry) - 2/19/2015 10:47:19 AM
Think you are speechless concerning he state of the world and more importantly America.
