A Star Song (Short Story) - 12/10/2007 7:15:44 PM
May we all be as lame and misunderstood as Nuna! Sometimes our best moments come after years of heartache and exhaustion. At least I hope that's how it is, ha ha. The writer's life is one of hope and railyard. You have to keep knocking those long nails into the ground. Someday that darn train will follow your tracks, pick you up when you least expect it. A fun memory, Penni!
Why A Pen Name? (Short Story) - 4/25/2007 9:19:54 AM
I much prefer the spelling of your name, "Penni." It is original and "special." My full name is Regis Armand Joseph Auffray. They spelled "Armand" as "Armond" on my birth certificate. So there. I guess I've got an original name too. Thanks for this, Penni. Love and peace,

Happy St. Paddy's Day to ye, too, Penni Lynn. Great little write!
(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :)
St. Paddy's, aye, she's a bit of a sad day for me: it's the anniversary of my mother's passing; it's been seventeen years (she died in 1990). I still miss her now as I did back then.

Why A Pen Name? (Short Story) - 11/7/2004 2:47:04 AM
Well I was born Miller H Caldwell and it sticks out like a sore thumb. I could have called myself Joe Brown but on reflection, I think I was lucky. Having a pen name does create an double personality and that can be so cool.
At the end of the day as you know, its not the author's nbame which sells books but the contents.
Enjoy your days between the covers.
Titles Are Hard! (Short Story) - 9/18/2004 1:09:09 PM

enjoyed the read
When I Taught PreSchool (Short Story) - 8/11/2004 4:48:59 AM
See, you can be a doof around children, they don't care or even notice. And if they do notice, this only makes you way cooler than the other teachers, because you're just like them.
Why A Pen Name? (Short Story) - 7/31/2004 3:43:09 AM
Cool idea. I may have to consider that.
Why A Pen Name? (Short Story) - 7/26/2004 6:38:10 PM
..... you have opened a can of worms now, Penni !~!
If you are really interested in what the implications
may be in using a pen name, a good place to start is
probably Chapter 8 in Linda Goodman's Star Signs ... it's
about the hidden meanings in our names or lexigrams.
From there, you may also like to investigate why many
famous master craftsmen changed their names to write
and paint under many exotic handles .....
..... and then, it's only a short jump to the bible
codes (in English) ..... have you ever wondered why
those old texts used so many strange names for people,
places and events?
..... it was no coincidence.
Be warned this stuff is addictive and some serious
study will bring you astounding results and
satisfaction too, albeit that it is also a
have a great day all
Why A Pen Name? (Short Story) - 7/26/2004 4:07:36 PM
Thanks for this story on pen names. Worked for Mark Twain and countless others. Penni with an i is cool and whatever name you use it does not take away the essence of who you are inside.
I Am A Leaf (Short Story) - 7/19/2004 4:54:43 AM
I loved this! It was so imaginative! Personification was my FIRST REAL attempt at writing...our assignment in fifth grade was to personify a pumpkin during Halloween time...and I loved it! My teacher loved it too and told me I would be a great writer some day. :-) Keep up the good work!!! April

I Am A Leaf (Short Story) - 7/17/2004 6:42:19 AM
What a marvelous piece, your use of imagery is wonderful. I liked "Nomadic Clouds" it made me want to go see if the gypsy caravens were passing accross the sky.
I Am A Leaf (Short Story) - 7/16/2004 2:07:40 PM
Interesting and very entertaining write! I have thought about doing something like this, but haven't done so! Will have to put on my thinkin' cap to see what I can come up with! Well done!

Ode To A Halloween Pumpkin (Poetry) - 11/11/2007 8:40:11 PM
I thoroughly enjoyed it--I'm a Halloween enthusiast because of the potential for fun and creativity, anyway! I loved the reference to a "wax tear."
I Am But A Leaf (Poetry) - 11/4/2007 9:32:18 PM
I liked your thoughts about leafs in your poem. However, dont you think that the leaf is happiest in summer when they are bright and green? Your pumpkin poem was fun to read too.
Ode To A Halloween Pumpkin (Poetry) - 10/30/2007 1:28:55 PM
Great poem. The emotions and the wax tear are terrific.

Hi Penni....your personification of a leaf is dear to my heart as I too appreciate how special they are. Not only do they come from the great tree, but they are a symbol of change. Nicely done! :)

I have not forgotten and I have tac pins of both shuttles on my hat. I love the space program it is for those who dream beyond the realms of earth.
Tribute To The Space Shuttles Lost (Poetry) - 1/22/2005 2:40:25 PM
I remember both the Challenger and the Columbia disasters...I've seen a lot of history in the making, you know that? My first memory is of the Kennedy assassination, I was four years old. I remember Camille. Man walking on the moon. Martin Luther King getting shot. Robert Kennedy. The 60s, man! The terrible tornado outbreak of 1974. Earthquakes and other natural disasters through the years. (I went through the Blizzard of '78 and Ohio's worst flooding in 1969.) Oklahoma City bombing. The WTC bombing in 93. (Was it '93?) 9-11. And the latest disaster, the tsunami. GAD. Suddenly, I feel very old, indeed...and I'm only 45. I remember watching the Challenger on TV and when it exploded...I knew something wasn't right by the way the smoke patterns traced the sky. And I saw the Columbia disintegrate right overhead, in clear blue Texas skies. There was this straight line, the contrail--suddenly, it had like a "pouf" in it...and then it deviated into many hectic lines...I never heard anything, but my twin, who was asleep in bed three blocks north, heard a "boom."
Anyway, your poem is a touching, beautiful tribute to their memories--excellently penned and rhymed. They are missed. :(
(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

What a lovely poem for this Christmas season. Written with passion and obvious love.
Blessings to you
His Star* (Poetry) - 12/3/2004 9:35:47 PM
Written with conviction. You know, regarding the star called "Bethlehem", it occured in the days when the calendar only had 10 months in the year. It wasn't until thousands of years later that January (Janus) and February, which was at the END of December, were added. Info easy to find online by looking up the terms Georgian Calendar, Julian Calendar and Roman Calendar.
All we have is "this day" for each day we live is what matters most.
blessin's Penni, this "shines"

A splendid write.
Autumns's Bounty (Poetry) - 11/7/2004 2:43:10 AM
So timely to read Autumn's Bounty. In a garden with pears, plums and apples galore still to be harvested, you must be surprised I am in south west Scotland. What made this a remarkable Autumn poem was that there was no reference to the Fall.
Roll on next Autumn....
The Pumpkin Tale (Poetry) - 11/4/2004 4:46:36 PM
Very nice. Both style and theme make this a joy to read.

I am so glad fall is here! FINALLY! (Although the summer here in Texas this year wasn't actually half bad: it was mainly cooler and wetter than average! Hope we have a winter; that'd be great! We need some serious cold and snow to kill all these confounded BUGS! GRRR! I HATE bugs!)

A Perfect Place To Be (Poetry) - 9/22/2004 1:51:25 PM
For me, too. Where has this poem been all my life? I've got mountains around me every day. Grew up around them. Everything you've described here I've seen or heard all my life. If you're ever in West Virginia, try to visit Cooper's Rock State Forest. Go to the overlook by the Cheat River Canyon. The view there is everything you talked about and more. I'm gonna go there and watch the leaves change. The hillsides will turn into red, yellow, and orange checkerboards.
The Autumn Blend (Poetry) - 9/22/2004 1:45:44 PM
And because I love Autumn, I had to check out this one as well. I remember choosing pumpkins on field trips when I was in school. I think walking through the pumpkin patch was my favorite thing to do.
Country Sampler For Autumn (Poetry) - 9/22/2004 1:43:22 PM
Pack me up some of that! I'm gonna take one home for every day of the season. Really enjoyed this!

Blackbirds At A Bus Stop (Poetry) - 9/21/2004 1:48:03 AM
This is a gem. I love the whimsical atmosphere created as well as the rhyme. Crows are a favorite of mine

Take A Look (Poetry) - 8/23/2004 5:29:02 AM
Penni,As long as people believe the propaganda they are told, there will be wars. Pity we are not told the all facts, so that we may decide for ouyselves. Great way you have asked the question, lets hope someone eventually has the answer.
Take A Look (Poetry) - 8/23/2004 1:44:57 AM
Problem is no one really wants to look and see war for what it is. . . an insane excuse for greed.
poignant writing. blessin's
Take A Look (Poetry) - 8/22/2004 8:50:31 PM
war is more than just a dirty little thing, it is an enormous profanity ...
Take A Look (Poetry) - 8/22/2004 4:48:36 PM
It would be nice if we could just simply put wars away to a place where we lock it and throw away the keys...but then again, I know I'm only dreaming...

what a beautiful tribute to a place that i was in awe of just passing through...wonderful piece
Aspen Song (Poetry) - 8/9/2004 6:36:38 AM
Yes, I was happy in Aspen also. I walked all around humming and smiling.
Aspen Song (Poetry) - 8/8/2004 6:31:27 PM
I think part of you stayed behind since 1976. Certainly this was a special place for you. I know how places can affect you like this. I haven't been to Canada since 1980 and I'm still writing poems about it.
Aspen Song (Poetry) - 8/8/2004 5:01:06 PM
Those mountains are contagious. They gave John Denver a 'Rocky Mountain High.' Kept expecting 'Boulder.'

Ha! Penni, I defy anyone to keep a straight face while reading limericks! These are just dandy, one of my own favorite genres, truth to tell. (grin) They should be read aloud, to my mind, so I have just finished standing up straight and reading yours to my empty livingroom hehe. I am grinning still! LOL. (my favorite is Heather), though they are all entirely cool! katy xox.

Penni these were all excellent but I liked the last one the best. Got a great chuckle out of all of them though, Poet. Well-done. Good luck on your submission.
Looney Limericks (Poetry) - 7/29/2004 4:48:21 PM

Looney Limericks (Poetry) - 7/29/2004 2:32:05 PM

Outstanding timeless meanings throughout the page, Poet!!!
Little Versus That Ain't Haiku (Poetry) - 7/18/2004 4:14:51 PM
You're talking about traditional haiku. I think what you have here is more like spiritual haiku. It doesn't adhere to the syllabic restrictions, but contains all the heart and wisdom of true haiku.
Little Versus That Ain't Haiku (Poetry) - 7/18/2004 1:16:03 PM
These are really nice.
Little Versus That Ain't Haiku (Poetry) - 7/18/2004 11:19:16 AM
I hate haiku, too! These are sweet drops of wisdom, Penni. I could eat them all! Two suggestions: One single [A] Most surely [Must surely]

Wonderful Tale of a Lonesome Cowboy poem, Penni.
As you know, I'm a big fan of the Western genre, as you are, and we both wrote a Western!
The Cowboy's Last Ride (Poetry) - 7/2/2004 5:45:38 AM
I love westerns...old movies and I love cowboy poetry. I'm a child of a born Texan ( San Antonio_ so I come by my fondness honestly. I worked for Gene Autry a few years....out in Anahiem, California . Texan blood is in me and the legends of the cowboy still enetertain. Your poem reminded me of this fancy I have for the west. Thank you.
The Cowboy's Last Ride (Poetry) - 7/1/2004 9:32:36 PM
well done, Penni...this reminded me of that old song done by Loren Green from the TV show, Bonanza, called Ringo, if I remember correctly.

My lemon is the one I'm still lucky (if luck is what you want to call it) enough to be driving. My 1995 Chevy Blazer. Got stuck real good on this one. Now, I've put so much into her, I could never afford to part with her. Oh well, life's lessons, so to speak!

A captivating write, Penni. Being a fan of Native American legend and lore, I really enjoyed this.
Hero (Poetry) - 5/11/2004 8:45:48 AM
Penni, it is great to have your own hero, isn't it? Men also seek their heroines, but the ones I have found sooner or later have feet of clay and tumble off their pedastal; where they shouldn't have been put in the first place. But you can dream, and it will always be only a dream that can't match the reality of the love you encounter.
Hero (Poetry) - 5/9/2004 8:46:35 AM
Very nice. I'm always impressed with achievments of unlikely heroes. Those are the kind I notice most.
Hero (Poetry) - 5/8/2004 3:37:54 PM
I'm thinking, hero is as hero does. Hope he continues to light the fire.
Hero (Poetry) - 5/8/2004 3:27:59 PM
I really like this! We do need many more heroes today.

Hi Penni...I wrote one similar about the drums

could come home...I see today that one of our
men was captured...I love the pleading feel
of this sorrowful poem..well done..floria

Indeed. Nowhere are we closer to God than in nature. You've captured exactly how I feel every time I go to Cooper's Rock.

A Chest Of Memories (Poetry) - 4/1/2004 4:07:09 PM
Oh yes, I know exactly how you feel. I just helped my parents go through their attic. I rummaged through all the old memories. Found a picture of my 14th birthday. Had to count the candles on the cake to make sure. Found a poem I wrote to my Dad when I was 10. Hard work, but I wouldn't trade reliving those old memories for anything.
