How I Saved Humankind (Book) - 9/5/2014 6:44:29 AM|
This was a delightful read, Debra. It parallels my encounter with frogs in my bedroom--hundreds of them--just a few nights ago. But those little cowards disappeared the moment I turned on the lights. I don't think I saved humankind, but were are still here, therefore...

cool i really liked that series
In the Shadowof the Demon (Short Story) - 3/20/2011 9:43:45 AM

Silent Night (Poetry) - 1/31/2015 8:25:58 PM
[ok... thank you for this, it inspired me] :)
It tarries long in windsept caves
drifting on as blameless snow
atop the knolls where shadow follows
imprinting firm on every trail
refusing to be captive
Hold firm... love long!
Reality Shows (Poetry) - 1/23/2015 2:46:44 AM
It is pathetic isn't it?! This obsession with reality shows. A humorous, well written write!
Wishing you creativity and bliss!
With respect and smiles,

Silent Night (Poetry) - 12/29/2014 9:12:09 AM
Why would anyone want to hold on to the silent darkness? Unless it was a holy night, maybe?
Silent Night (Poetry) - 12/29/2014 6:29:27 AM
I'm hanging on, Debra. Best wishes for a much better 2015.
Grasping at Wisdom (Poetry) - 9/20/2014 6:03:12 PM
Miracles are mundane and fantastic. Which is more important? Are the secrets of universe more important than the taste of the fruit? Maybe all miracles are the same? I know I can't put a value on what's more important. The fruit I can touch. Thoughtful poem here Debra. Bob

May 2014 bring many more from your magical pen.

Very well done.
I love a mystical trip.
Divine Knowledge (Poetry) - 10/2/2013 7:30:53 AM
I often find myself wishing to wake up to escape those riddles that don't seem to have a solution and haunt me for one.
Divine Knowledge (Poetry) - 10/2/2013 6:36:44 AM
thoughtful, probing, intelligent, and so pleasant to read.
Another gem, Debra.

What Do I Think of Smoking? (Poetry) - 9/14/2013 6:15:54 PM
Reading your poetry is like curling up with your lover
with a glass of wine and some popcorn
to watch a movie but not really watching it
as you feel the warmth her body and crunching sounds
that tell you there may be better places and happier moments
but not right now, I'll take these.
A little more wine, please...
Heaven (Poetry) - 5/10/2013 11:59:48 AM
There is other romantic music…and there is Claire de Lune
There are other sonnets…and there is How do I Love Thee?
There are other poems…and there is Heaven by Debra Kraft.

I really like this refreshing piece of creative poetry.
Inspiration (Poetry) - 4/4/2013 2:36:05 PM
Oh, great insight! And with such intrigue. The mind of a philosopher, the agility of a magician, the silky smoothness of compelling poetry.
Inspiration (Poetry) - 4/3/2013 2:50:28 PM
yes it is the all that drives us when it hits
Heaven (Poetry) - 3/30/2013 9:16:33 PM

An Eternal Debt (Poetry) - 3/29/2013 10:51:58 AM
Trying not to echo Ed, this is simply magnificent! Knowing history well, I'm not much for fanciful stories of a Camelot that never was, but occasionally I do see the fable or allegory in the stories that makes them work. Your poem simply works. And should be read by many both here and abroad.
An Eternal Debt (Poetry) - 3/29/2013 9:44:07 AM
I dare anyone to read this without savoring every line and rhyme. What a jewel of a poem! Now I must go back and read it again to better understand the story. Impressive!
An Eternal Debt (Poetry) - 3/29/2013 8:47:14 AM
very cool story i loved it

Life in the Carnival of Men (Poetry) - 2/7/2013 8:43:17 AM
That is quite a ride! I hope it is more of the exhilarating and less of the terrifying and frozen.
Heaven (Poetry) - 1/23/2013 8:43:04 AM
It will be great sight to see all the dry bones restoted to life and Christ our Saviour all shall see!
Heaven (Poetry) - 1/19/2013 1:06:15 PM
And you are building that fantasy from the firm ground of mother Earth.
Heaven (Poetry) - 1/18/2013 4:18:19 PM
this is a wonderful vision hold onto it, thank you for sharing it
Your Eyes (Poetry) - 1/4/2013 5:47:44 PM
I guess what you express here is the reason I don't mind when so many tell me that I "never grew up." Thank you, Debra. Love and best wishes,
Your Eyes (Poetry) - 1/1/2013 9:42:01 AM
it's ok to seek fantasies in and out of day dreams
Love & Peace
Your Eyes (Poetry) - 12/22/2012 10:37:00 AM
YES! When we lose our fairy-tale fantasies, we tend to get lost along the way. Good poetry!

What 50 years have taught me (Poetry) - 7/26/2011 4:28:32 PM
Wise and impressively articulate, Debra,
i like these musings very much...limiting
expectations is a lesson still to be learned
by most sold on 'the dream'... not dreams...
there is a difference; the final one is
so well said.
What 50 years have taught me (Poetry) - 7/26/2011 4:01:12 PM
That's what makes life interesting even to an old guy like me, always looking forward to tomorrow before I burn out today and extinguish what God gave me. You gotta have heart and old song used to say.
What 50 years have taught me (Poetry) - 7/26/2011 1:27:30 PM
A gift life is ... yes ... and there has to be balance, in all things, and clear perspective to bring fruition to each persons gift. Strangely, 'behind the curtain' (though we view it as being something disparate at times) another reality exists pondering what's behind the curtain from another perspective. I haven't seen your name for years Debra. Hope all is well. peace to you ... richard

line, the beauty comes through. -gene.

ah, the voice of experience rings true...
well done, debra.
The Dance (Poetry) - 5/7/2011 4:42:17 AM
The Dance (Poetry) - 5/5/2011 4:02:58 PM
"...and then a trace of perfection
presses for a new direction"
how well that's said!
and indeed the entire poem is delivered with
wisdom and genuine insight.
Some dance indeed!
The Dance (Poetry) - 5/5/2011 10:48:13 AM
Love the way you dance, Debra. Invigorating to me as well.
I'm so glad you resurrected this rhythmic beauty. -gene.

ancient roads are imbued with dreams ready to be rekindled ...
well written as well as stimulating content ...
Ancient Roads (Poetry) - 4/16/2011 6:21:04 AM
All is one...
Remarkable write, Debra; truly draws the reader inward and beyond.
Ancient Roads (Poetry) - 4/15/2011 5:00:54 PM
Superb poetry, Debra. I like the way you structured this,
the way you echo your lines; i.e....
left to crumble in the dust....
Left to crumble in my hands
I like it too for the archeological inspiration. I've always wanted to go to ancient lands and dig.
Again, Debra, so beautifully crafted.
Ancient Roads (Poetry) - 4/15/2011 3:49:23 PM
Throughout this fine metaphorical write
Debra, the sense of connection and the search
for truth are very strong indeed.
Love the use of 'crumble' at various stages.

Exile (Poetry) - 6/27/2010 6:58:14 AM
i have so been here-felt so lost and the only way back was to find my own self, little by little
Exile (Poetry) - 6/25/2010 5:35:50 PM
Truly a soul-reaching, expressive write that awakens the emotions, Debra... ...and believe or don't, I can relate to what you have expressed here. Love, peace, and best wishes to you,

Acceptance makes all the difference doesn't it. Great write. LadyJ
What's left? (Poetry) - 10/29/2009 6:36:35 AM
Been in that state many times in my youth. Now I don't ask that question I just have to wait till I get up the energy for the task. It's a good way you explain those moments when the body is in survival mode just before break down. LadyJ
Family Crisis (Poetry) - 10/28/2009 7:25:42 PM
powerful words-i am so sorry-i know of such pain
What's left? (Poetry) - 10/28/2009 6:47:41 PM
it is tough to feel this way--your opening lines say it all--we dance so fast we are exhausted
Family Crisis (Poetry) - 10/28/2009 12:49:13 PM
Debra, how difficult it must be to write so movingly
of such pain and rejection. -gene.
Family Crisis (Poetry) - 10/28/2009 9:06:14 AM
Well done, and well understood. LadyJ
I touched the hand of evil (Poetry) - 9/17/2009 8:34:14 PM
I went to high school with Kami and I was also a friend of both her and Cynthia. Thank you for this outstanding work of literature. It really does capture the terror of the moment and what each girl (the Urbin sisters included) must have gone through in the last moments of life and how it must have affected the investigating officers. It helps bring across the "darkness of the hour" and the pure evil that is Leslie Allen Williams. The 18th anniversary of Kami;s death just passed a few days ago and I am happy I came across this. Again, thank you for your work.
What can you do? (Poetry) - 7/4/2009 3:47:09 PM
I find this particularly apt and timely and meaningful Debra; I am sure I'm not the only one. Thank you. Love and best wishes,
What can you do? (Poetry) - 6/3/2009 6:04:32 PM
we are fortunate for when we loose all else, we still have the freedom to choose, even if that choice is only our thoughts and our reactions to life
What can you do? (Poetry) - 6/3/2009 11:49:18 AM
Life can be so disapointing when dreams never appear. So true. Lady J
The Autos' Lament (Poetry) - 5/8/2009 8:15:33 PM
Wouldn't be nice if we could keep the autos and
toss out the shortsighted, greedy bosses have caused
the downfall of perhaps our one great surviving industry?
Debra, your "Autos' Lament" is most moving. -gene.
The Autos' Lament (Poetry) - 5/4/2009 8:22:38 PM
such a sad reality for many--hang in there
Dreaming (Poetry) - 3/22/2009 6:20:33 AM
i like this--sometimes, the ability to get lost in the dream helps us to get through
Dreaming (Poetry) - 3/21/2009 3:17:07 PM
Thank you, Gene! That line was added for this revision. I'm glad to see it worked so much better than the original line, which was very weak and cliche.
Dreaming (Poetry) - 3/21/2009 8:06:58 AM
Wonderful, Debra. I can really identify with this--as dreamer and writer. This is a great line: "the place where legends climb with me to the top of every hill." -gene.
Bye-Bye Mr. Corporate Pride (Poetry) - 2/9/2009 4:58:53 PM

A perfect and powerful metaphor, Debra, and so well written.
Good luck you, and I'm sorry about the company friend you wrote
about in the other post. -gene.
We are not weeds (Poetry) - 2/2/2009 12:14:40 PM
A most apt and timely write, Debra. How can there be unemployment when there is so much to be done? Just think of the aging and decaying infrastructure. It's no different here in Canada. This is proof that the economic/financial system has never worked for the well-being of the great majority of this planet's inhabitants. Thank you for sharing your thoughts. Love and peace,
The Key (Poetry) - 1/18/2009 6:04:25 PM
fascinating write--and thought provoking as we cheer for this girl then are shocked by her final imprisonment

Truth and opinion, fact and point of view well explored, and I love this exploration.
Truth Skips a Generation (Poetry) - 8/19/2008 12:10:03 PM
well expressed food for thought and as well as for change
Truth Skips a Generation (Poetry) - 8/17/2008 2:32:57 PM
Debra, truth, I'm thinking, is, more often than not, a matter
of opinion. Good thinking though. -gene.
Truth Skips a Generation (Poetry) - 8/17/2008 8:44:01 AM
Profound thought...maybe it does skip a generation.

I would think that most of us are the people we love.
Screen Capture (Poetry) - 7/27/2008 8:59:25 AM
Debra, this is a brilliantly composed poem. Your wit and intelligence combine beautifully with your creative side. My favorite lines are:
"Tis a beast born of Bacchus, no doubt,
feasting on words with gluttonous frenzy
so it can vomit in code."
In respect ...
Screen Capture (Poetry) - 7/17/2008 12:18:44 PM

This is wonderful in rhyme, verse, and meaning. Not a word wasted.

Debra, the silenced one is usually the one in the middle...just like the middle child...never standing out or getting all the love, but they grow up to be wise old owls full of knowledge and common sense because they had to fight for what they got. Enjoyed this much!!!

...touching are the words you pen...and your hand now...remembers the moments...give us vision of something never to be taken for granted.
The Man in the Middle (Poetry) - 5/3/2008 3:06:07 PM
...with wonderful colors of wisdom...your poetic verse describes the likeness of a middle man...given all the right definition.
very well done Debra...

Seen but not heard. Silence is a skill my friend. Everything passes through him but nothing gets past him. Great rhyme and flow. Peace, Love and Blessings Always,Paul.

Such talent, Debra...an art of rhyming to live for. Gene.

How BEAUTIFUL!!! Ahhhh, if there were only any of these middle men left. They are far and between! Do you have the luck to know someone who is like this =)?

The will to go on and the hope of seeing those tiny useless hands brought many of us home. Peace, Love and God's Blessings Always, Paul.

Debra, this is touching & heartfelt, our American hero's serving in far off lands cause us to cringe inside and wish we could bring them home. A nice write.
