Memories of my Childhood - God is in the Details (Short Story) - 5/10/2009 5:40:54 AM
This story was very hard for me to read. It took several days for me to actually sit down and go through it. I knew your father well (my uncle Joe). I wondered how his child turned out so well. This story answers my questions.My emotions ran high as I read your story. I am very sad yet overjoyed at your good fortune. I know first hand how things turned out for other members of your family. God was certainly in the details in your life. I am very proud and happy to be related to such a gifted person.God be with you always.

What a collective effort! You guys should have PUBLISHED this under ONE banner! Though I read as many parts remaining online as I could, this was an exceptiona and entertaining write! You could have developed into more and filled in the blanks, making the tapestry richer! As it was, it was FANTASTIC!

Memories of my Childhood - God is in the Details (Short Story) - 11/8/2003 5:14:28 PM
Inspirational, profound and gripping! You have a very decorative flair to your writing. I like the total piece as a whole but truly enjoyed the desciptive lay out of the thoughts in association to their subject. I loved the 'rain hat'! :o) Seriously...wore one of those a time or two myself. My sis Becca made them and colored them so they were more..."fashionable"...LOL!! How psycho is that! ;oD
You have a fantastic talent Jeff. Much enjoyed and yes...God is ALWAYS in the details...!

On Mortality and The Butterfly Effect (Article) - 10/1/2008 3:28:44 PM
Time travel is pure fantasy, but we have great history and human selective memory to make it seem better in the past. Whatever the effects of small events, we all begin and end our life in the present.
Interesting write. Reminds of What Dreams May Come (Robin Williams).
On Mortality and The Butterfly Effect (Article) - 9/28/2008 6:05:20 AM
Awww ... poor little butterfly. I stepped on a honey bee once when I was a child, and I never forget it because it stange me in it's final words. Interesting article, Jeff.
Purgatory (Poetry) - 2/25/2015 1:10:52 PM
This held me like a vice, Jeff. It's stark and reasoned clarity resonates as down those infernal interminable halls and the sensible tone is chilling. There seems to be no hyperbole here; the experiences are meant and felt. You've certainly given me cause to consider how infinitely to be feared this place you describe is - and we scarcely give a thought to it, caught, as we are, between our twin fixations of the polarities of Heaven and Hell. In a deeply spiritual experience I had once, I felt as if cast out into the deepest, darkest, blackest space in the whole universe. The pain I felt was loneliness above everything else - and this from a person who loves physical aloneness and can happily spend much time on my own. What strikes me above all is how it's the self-flagellation that is the terror and the torture here. To be not able to get away from the perpetual persecutor must be torment. It's the self that needs to be both forgiving and forgiven and that can be the hardest thing on earth. I pray God that you are no longer trapped in this heart-rending in-between and that you have been able to move to a place of restoration and resolution. Very powerfully written, Jeff. xx
Birth of a Song (Poetry) - 2/16/2015 3:41:01 PM
Inspiration usually comes out of thin air for some or others have a favorite desk and/or spot where they create. Have to say my muse likes to remain a mystery. ;).
Running from the Rain (Poetry) - 2/16/2015 3:35:36 PM
This flows so nicely, a beautiful piece. It seems you wrote this with others in mind . however , I do get the sense this would not be far from your experiences either.
Running from the Rain (Poetry) - 2/12/2015 7:56:31 PM
The pain felt here would go well with some heavy guitar. I can hear a singer belting out these lyrics. I love it!
Reparations (Poetry) - 2/12/2015 12:41:26 PM
"for thou hast pierced
all layers this heart long hath built"
These lines blew my mind. Write on!
Purgatory (Poetry) - 2/12/2015 12:39:00 PM
I have a friend who insists that this existence is hell. I can see now that I will be reading more of your material.
Reparations (Poetry) - 2/11/2015 1:59:56 PM
I could take this poem and steal your words and it would fit how I used to be to a T. Oh yes, we can be such fools in the name of love. Love, I have come to believe that more heartache and misery come from the "other" four-letter word . . . Love than anything thing else in the world..
Purgatory (Poetry) - 2/11/2015 1:51:30 PM
Ahhh . . . Purgatory indeed, Jeff Mason. For the last few days I have been reading the modern translation of "The Divine Comedy." Just have barely open the first book, "Inferno." You write very deep and very dark. there was a time when I was into the dark, poetical and otherwise. Yep, I still write dark, but not with as much passion as I used to.
Reparations (Poetry) - 2/11/2015 12:04:05 PM
It's beautiful to see such a much-needed and timeless message couched within breath-taking and classic lines. This oozes with personal sentiment and yet touches the heart, I'm sure, of all who read of its vulnerability, humility and grace. Love the honesty and openness of this contrite heart. Well done, Jeff. And welcome back! :) xx
Purgatory (Poetry) - 2/11/2015 11:51:16 AM
I've read this three times, each time I feel the pain more deeply. Sounds more like pure hell than purgatory Jeff. Wonderfully penned from the soul.
Reparations (Poetry) - 2/11/2015 11:50:26 AM
What a stunning and heartfelt poem Jeff.
Before You Let Me Go (song?) (Poetry) - 2/8/2015 4:49:42 PM
I wonder if you have put these to song yet? They are certainly inspired and catchy and oh what potential for growth these painful experiences contain! Blessings, Christine
Reparations (Poetry) - 2/8/2015 4:40:18 PM
Thank you, everyone, for your reviews, thoughts and comments. It means a lot to me.
Reparations (Poetry) - 2/8/2015 4:22:37 PM
In my experience, forgiveness has always been the better course of action... ...and yes, it has mattered a great deal. Love and peace to you, Jeff.
Reparations (Poetry) - 2/8/2015 2:43:44 PM
A deeply heartfelt request that surely would be both accepted and appreciated. Composed with sincerity.
Reparations (Poetry) - 2/6/2015 2:04:46 PM
Written with truest measure of kindness, compassion and love.
The inspiration of a loving spirit is manifest in these lines!
Reparations (Poetry) - 2/6/2015 9:31:10 AM
Very honest lines and emotions. I hope the person you are seeking forgiveness will forgive you. Forgiveness is a beautiful thing where one can set oneself free of any rusty emotions.

Running from the Rain (Poetry) - 2/6/2015 8:28:34 AM
O l,It is just beautiful, the rhythm and the words just as it is in the beating of the rain ... running from the pain.
Reparations (Poetry) - 2/5/2015 2:30:43 PM
...being human's...inevitable...to hurt others..even unintentionally...appreciate
your honest-humble and impressively genuine words...seeking forgiveness
and asking the person you've wronged for compassionate looking at the shadowy
corners of your human interaction...of being only human....
I'm egually struck by your poetic vulnerability in sharing words;..."any harm I've done
to thee, is but a fatal wound...to me"....trying to forgive oneself for being fallible seems
the hardest act...to follow....it's only human.....
Reparations (Poetry) - 2/5/2015 11:58:11 AM
Written in a older style, almost Elizabethan, you have shown the torment of needing forgiveness for acts unkind.
Reparations (Poetry) - 2/4/2015 12:07:23 PM
Wonderfully penned. Reflective grace and spirit of the heart.
Lady Mary Ann
Reparations (Poetry) - 2/4/2015 11:37:08 AM
Amen! Deeply felt emotion diffuses from this. Great imaging, Jeff, and you hit some classic rhyme-schemes throughout as well. It's cool how you spirited classic parlance with a universal message. Very creative. Enjoyed this. Peace...
Purgatory (Poetry) - 2/4/2015 7:34:23 AM
Great poetry excellently composed though grim
and profound in its texture.... May you find peace within
Frames (Poetry) - 2/3/2015 4:01:12 PM
Sorry I was too late getting here to read your poem. Sounds like it was good. :)
Purgatory (Poetry) - 2/3/2015 8:51:25 AM
Truly a dark persecution of the soul but with such eloquence in its signature.
Purgatory (Poetry) - 2/3/2015 7:21:18 AM
Very thrilling poetry. Raw and honest, and a far-reaching ending ~
Darling, every day's a new day with no mistakes in it, and anyone who doesn't get that has a problem.

Chanti, Carol, Sandie, richard, Ronald, Duke, Regis, thank you so much for your reviews. And, Chanti, I have missed your work as well!
Purgatory (Poetry) - 2/1/2015 7:36:07 PM
I have missed your work Jeff. Your brilliance shines through the darkness of this write. I sincerely hoping you weren't talking from your own personal perspective.
Best line: "Thus I remain...for now, unforgiven; a lifeless, anguished shadow...trapped...in this infernal forlorn in-between."
It perfectly summed up the rest of the poem.
Purgatory (Poetry) - 2/1/2015 2:40:48 PM
This is a profound description of deep despair, and loss. There are a few golden rules in life and one is that the past is past, the future is unknown, and the present moment is all that matters. And another golden rule is that to believe in dreams is to give wings to the imagination thereby creating a materialization! But of course Poet, you know this.
With respect and admiration,
Carol Phelan Aebby
Purgatory (Poetry) - 2/1/2015 6:27:32 AM
I'm a believer in spirits. I feel that some souls are lost because they know not where they should belong, as it is written in this unique poem. Sometimes the souls need direction in order to go towards the light.
Purgatory (Poetry) - 1/31/2015 5:02:50 PM
I haven't seen your name in the global community for years, Jeff. Your work always was, and is, a welcome stimulation. You've created a fine atmosphere in this piece. "no breath can thrive in darkness so profound and so complete." Amen! Peace... rlc
Purgatory (Poetry) - 1/31/2015 3:14:51 PM
sometimes the spirit must be persuaded to advance and assimilate, not to linger or relinquish ... it's all about perspective ...
you should post more Jeff ...
Purgatory (Poetry) - 1/31/2015 11:56:07 AM
In your bio, you state that you often write "very dark poetry." That is an understatement. From what I read here, this person is under great torment from self-inflicted wounds. Very heavy, to say the least.
Purgatory (Poetry) - 1/31/2015 11:51:44 AM
Wow! "The flames of Hades would be recompense...." Rather like doing a cannonball into the Fiery Lake...and "...your own flagellation" brings to mind my piece "Twisted Trail"; "I keep beatin' myself up for things way back in the past; I will flog myself forever to my core; I will beat and beat and beat 'till I can beat no more...." -- this is some very fine writing. ~ duke
Purgatory (Poetry) - 1/31/2015 10:48:12 AM
Truly a thought-provoking and engaging piece of writing, Jeff. I wish you love and peace.
Running from the Rain (Poetry) - 9/27/2009 5:23:19 PM

Running from the Rain (Poetry) - 12/3/2008 9:46:13 PM
Well Jeff, I reckon that is as good as any other Crooners love song you'll hear on the airwaves. I enjoyed that, even though it is essentially sad.
Thanks for stopping by my den too
Running from the Rain (Poetry) - 12/3/2008 2:41:44 PM
very heartfelt, I enjoyed your voice as well as the words you sang. I remember my love of music and singing when I was younger. I have not sang publically in many years, now. I used to sing in choirs and solos at my churches. Now, I just sing in the shower. hahaha. But I admire your courage to sing acappella, especially. I thoroughly enjoyed it, Cuz.
Just Wondering (Poetry) - 12/3/2008 2:37:22 PM

It played in Quicktime, but I got no sound. That's a shame, because it looks good as written.
Running from the Rain (Poetry) - 12/2/2008 12:33:18 PM
It's wonderful. I do hope someone records it. I wish you great success Jeff. You deserve it. And, your singing isn't bad, quite good in fact.
Running from the Rain (Poetry) - 12/2/2008 10:27:45 AM
Polish this up a little and you have a sure fire Country Western hit which Glen Campbell sure could use and do it justice. Hope you find someone who will love it and make it a great success for you.
Running from the Rain (Poetry) - 12/2/2008 9:15:09 AM

Concentric Convergence (Poetry) - 10/13/2008 12:38:51 PM
Shakespearian Rapture! This would be a masterpiece of a script for any playwrite to adapt into a modern-day Romeo & Juliet on stage...these lines are fit for Montague's and Capulet's! I would love to hear these lines reverberating in a theatre full of Renaissance-dressed-coiffed fans who paid a week's wages and entered a night in the Concentric Convergence, the first play of Mason's Millenium! Great write fit for theatrical dialogue, Jeff...

Phoenix Reborn (Poetry) - 9/22/2008 4:26:33 PM
The flame she brought to you opened your soul, for life is short lived, but yet eternity awaits us, we are here to touch others and I know Deanna did this for you, she has given you a lasting gift, though brief, she will always remain, use it wisely and with god-given wisdom, I loved this write as I love all of your poems and songs, Take care Blessings' Valerie
Phoenix Reborn (Poetry) - 9/22/2008 1:27:20 PM
"for I am flight of flame; wings unfolded... to immeasurable breadth... because of you;
I am risen in your memory..."
Surely little more perfect has been or can be written than the agonising throes of soul and spirit that you pen here, Jeff. This is tribute, elegy and catharsis, all so seamlessly interwoven and with such balance and control amidst the pain. This precious lady has given you life in your inner being and to the depth of your core and its full impact has yet to be seen, experienced and lived. You have been blessed beyond measure and nothing will be able to take from you what will ultimately be gained. I am broken by your tragic loss and yet in awe of the preciousness of the gift which few will ever be able to hope for, let alone attain. I'm awed. Thank you for the privilege of being able to share this with you. May you continue this unsought journey knowing that eventually there will be beauty from the ashes. With love, Kate xx
A Grain of Sand Among Ten Billion (Deanna [Batson] Love Tribute) (Poetry) - 9/22/2008 4:59:42 AM
Just magnificent! Such a friendship is a treasure; its value increases as ripples on a pond, reaching ever farther and touching hearts through the impact she made. Her touch on your life will continue to energize your love for others.
Phoenix Reborn (Poetry) - 9/20/2008 4:06:08 AM
That is soooo beautifully written - as it should be - for such beautiful thoughts and feelings need such a pen - great poetry, Nicky xx

It All Fades in Time Anyway - redux (Poetry) - 9/16/2008 11:00:18 AM
Dear Jeff, How nice to read you again. This poem could be used as lyrics as it is very meaningful. It seems to contain nostalgia from the past. Nothing in life is lost as everything stays in us, sometimes in the open and sometimes hidden deep within.

A Grain of Sand Among Ten Billion (Deanna [Batson] Love Tribute) (Poetry) - 9/15/2008 1:53:11 PM
Jeff, I'm in awe. The reverence, the beauty, the soulfire. The pain. I am saddened beyond words for such a loss, both to you and to Deanna's little daughters and close family. I can only pray that your depth of love - tangible and supernatural - may remain with you to heal you of your sorrow and minister into your pain, so that in some way it might be metamorphosed into an enduring strength and glory in your heart and soul. Your loss is so great... and yet, what you have been blessed with is even more bountiful, even more majestic than our minds can comprehend. Rare indeed is the gift and legacy of such a deep and intimately-connected friendship. Forgive the "shallow" comparison, but my most iconic, well-loved film is City of Angels with Nick Cage and Meg Ryan: a ministering angel assumes human form to be with the woman he has fallen in love with; shortly after, she is tragically killed. He cannot understand the hand of the God he has so faithfully served and yet says: "I would rather have lived just one moment with one breath of her hair, one touch of her skin, than to have lived a whole eternity without it". I believe this is the precious soul-territory you speak of here, the most wholly divine and profound relationship we can experience while still walking this earth... And you have held it in your hands and will carry it forever in the fabric of your soul. Forgive my emotional ramblings, but I am touched. The beauty of this song and tribute transcends mere words: this write is immortal. In this most profound gift of love you have touched the face of God and felt His heart. My prayers are with you. Go placidly and pursue peace. Love Kate xx

OMG, so dark and sad Jeff!
But your images I could see!
I've been here and still miss a great friend, I see daily at work (another Sch. Bus driver) but I wish her the best as I wave! and my heart stays kind!
The way you expressed your emotions is mind boggling in the heart, any way it's looked at.
We must go on - Forward!

No one can understand a friendship like what was expressed in this beautiful Love Offering you created for your friend, unless they have experienced the love of a true friend! I looked my whole life to find the missing piece of me and then oneday GOD placed Susan in my life and her friendship and love made me whole. I mourn the loss of your best friend and can understand the pain you feel. SC

Alex, you need to learn to read more properly - "morning tends my eye" is referring to the 'widower' - the person who is still alive. And thieves often torment those from whom they steel, if not directly, then by the stinging torment that is felt by the thing(s) being taken away. Please go back to Homer, do not pass Plato or Socrates. -- Jeff
A Grain of Sand Among Ten Billion (Deanna [Batson] Love Tribute) (Poetry) - 8/31/2008 11:40:36 AM
most lovely and heartfelt tribute I was very moved. It is such a blessing that such people exist at all, more so when we are lucky enough to meet them. It leaves me with a pang of pain in the heart to remember from my own experience and from yours how some of the loveliest people and experiences on earth seem to be too lovely to stay with us long enough. I do not know why some of the loveliest people are taken away from us so early but such is the drama and the exquisite rhythm pain/joy of life and the transientness of all things as the Buddhists well know. You have made such a lovely contribution full of emotion and love. This wonderful poem calls for enactment with movement and music of sufficient beauty and serenity and intensity. Thinking of you and of your loss which moves me to live again in a poignant but positive way a parallel loss that I have experienced recently. The first days and weeks and months are very difficult one needs to live out and express all the grief and through the expressed grief find the joy of having been blessed with such wonderful people even for a short time. You are already doing that in your lovely poem.

Lovely lady Jeff, you did a great tribute to her, sympathies
A Grain of Sand Among Ten Billion (Deanna [Batson] Love Tribute) (Poetry) - 8/28/2008 11:32:48 AM
Clearly, reviewer/author Alexander Dijas (forgive if the spelling is wrong) was reviewing this as a 'poem,' but in actuality this is a 'song' (already have the melody) - and songs follow different criteria, formats and methodologies from poems.
Additionally, he had implied that I 'borrowed from Byron' in my AD Bio quote when, in fact, I've never read anything by Byron. I certainly have heard of Byron and may one day read some of his works.
At any rate, I do appreciate criticism and critiques, but "tributes" also should be respected with sensitivity. They are tributes for a reason - sometimes they are 'rushed onto the page,' and are less than perfect - like Deanna - she was the first to admit she was far from perfect and she was happy to point out her own flaws.
I thank everyone for your reviews. -- Jeff

waiting for redemption (Poetry) - 5/25/2008 10:26:33 AM
we will have angels to carry us on when the time comes. Redemption is for all. Meanwhile we live as best we can and do get depressed some and joyful at times too. It is a circle of life and we have to hang in there for better times to come. Loved this writing and the photo too. Mighty inspirational.
waiting for redemption (Poetry) - 5/25/2008 8:42:13 AM
Well, my name is not Ed, but that is how I intended it to be seen - as both a "love poem" and as "Godly / spiritual." True love is, after all, a 'God-like' experience.
Angels, as well, are Godly creatures - "messengers" in most Biblical references - and therefore we often make analogies to those ever-mysterious God-created creatures, in order to see the parallels in life and love.
And what more devastating sight (or thought) could there be, than that of an 'angel,' despondent and hopeless. Angels, after all, are assumed to have no worries, and are so often seen as cheerful creatures.
-- Jeff (not "Ed") ;-)

Excellent, emotional, and cohesive write from start to finish. This would make a great 'live-read'.
"until your chains that bind
shall yield and burst
unto my passionís fires that blind...
and ache for you with deepest thirst"
Has the feel of a classic.
Good to read you again.

Just a pick up I needed to get me out of grieving. Have to look forward to being with my loved one. So religious poetry and fortunate to be able to read it from you.
