Peter...your hopeful, faithful soul pours out in this piece. No goodness or kindness given is ever "...in vain".
The Dragonfly and The Scallop (Short Story) - 10/7/2006 12:40:43 PM
Great inspiration and healing for all those who would read. This message could, and should, never be condensed to poetry, for there is much too much to be absorbed!
I'd suggest this be manditory reading for the leaders of the world...

loved it. Your very good at painting imagery to the mind and heck, I didn't want to be the character in the story but I think we all are those characters in everyday life.
The Dragonfly and The Scallop (Short Story) - 7/9/2006 4:38:48 PM
A wonderful piece of work and very inspirarional to all I love your choice of words . And I enjoyed reading your story ..Thank you
The Dragonfly and The Scallop (Short Story) - 7/6/2006 9:45:35 PM
If only more individuals dared to believe they might become "the supreme alchemist of their own fate." A challenging concept to embrace in a world where so many are conditoned to believe in everything but themselves, yet an essential truth to recognize if one is to live a life of any meaningful quality or joy.
The Return of the Crusader (Short Story) - 6/30/2006 7:03:51 PM
Peter, this is wonderful, I'm glad I found the time to stop by and read this one. I love the first paragraph, but what caught my attention even more was the poetic prose from the fourth paragraph down, like an epic poem. I loved it. Elizabeth
The Dragonfly and The Scallop (Short Story) - 6/22/2006 2:27:04 PM
A wonderful write, Peter, so glad we came to see what we have missed!
The Dragonfly and The Scallop (Short Story) - 6/21/2006 8:51:25 PM
one of the most indepth pieces I have seen since, well, a long while. Being a christian myself, I agree with and am amazed by your words and of how you used them in this story.

Okay I have a poem for this written last year and it's called what else? Chamaeleon. I hope you will read it. Cheers and thanks for another very interesting write.
The Dragonfly and The Scallop (Short Story) - 6/4/2006 11:17:54 PM
Lately I am re-considering, and re-evaluating. It's not the first time. But something forces me to see the benefits of being simply your self and caring about your own happiness - something I have absolutely no idea how to do it. I tend to think the rest is only God's business and we shouldn't interfere. That God wants us happy as individuals - self sacrifices is for special occasions and love is stronger when we have learned how to love ourselves without becoming egoists. Thanks for the thought-provoking write.

Adapt Or Die (Short Story) - 5/3/2006 3:14:44 PM
I couldn't agree with you more. If we could all but live by these simple rules, how much happier our lives would be. And by the way, my favorite tree, the Willow. :)

Captivating dynamic write, Peter!
Adapt Or Die (Short Story) - 4/26/2006 7:06:36 AM
A lovely message with interesting points, Peter! Will be quite a challenge to put some of them in practice though. Lol.
The Dragonfly and The Scallop (Short Story) - 4/22/2006 9:21:52 AM
Powerful inspiring write, Peter! I'm so glad I came across it. Interesting title.
The Dragonfly and The Scallop (Short Story) - 4/16/2006 9:24:44 AM
I was expecting a Tortoise and Hare type fable (a story). Instead, this article of faith is a timeless rendition of what religious belief does for some people.

Utterly beautiful wisdom. Not that it is easy to be so attuned, but then we learn as we go.
Abortion Battle Lines Drawn In Mississippi (Article) - 7/14/2008 4:27:00 PM
Thank you so much for this article, I am glad that some states are begining to open their eyes, the fact that the woman who first fought for Roe VS Wade, is now against abortion should give some the clue, thank you for this

This is so interesting, Peter. Thank you for sharing it with us.
Calls To Pardon 'UK's Last Witch' (Article) - 12/6/2006 10:16:15 AM
Seems unbelievable that a law like that was on the books so long. But as Jackie has stated some of our States have antiquated laws still on th books, and her pardon should have happened as soon as the law was repealed, as Jackie has stated.

Calls To Pardon 'UK's Last Witch' (Article) - 12/6/2006 8:10:08 AM
Witchcraft Act of 1735 still in force in 1943?? Why wasn't automatic pardon for those arrested under that act made a part of the Repeal of the law?
Crazy laws...some still on the books right here in the U.S.
Very interesting article, Peter. THANKS

Woman is eaten by soldier lover (Article) - 11/5/2006 1:36:55 PM
How grizzly, and hard to fathom! Can't help but think...is this a case of two more victims of the War on Terror? When we put our service men/women in a position to see bodies blown apart, dismembered body parts landing on them...only a tormented mind could understand.

Demonic forces at work here, human beings don't do stuff like this unless they are outa their minds, whilst something else is in control.
He must of seen some gross stuff in the army, or watched Hannibal too many times!!

Well...there is an evil that permeates New Orleans and good people feel it and the evil ones become a catalyst. I'm not surprised Peter.

Wow, gross but things like this really do happen when the mind loses it's way completely.
Woman is eaten by soldier lover (Article) - 10/20/2006 4:39:21 PM
Yes indeed--the mind can become so confused that we become like wild animals ready for the kill . The war does nothing to help people who are alrady crazed. After World War 2 soliders were not rehibilated even if they had served in heavy combat for four years. They were not ready for society. Many did such crimes but to eat people is truly cannibal. But it happens. Think----Devil--let my people go. Marguerite Little Flower
The Silent Flute (Poetry) - 3/26/2013 5:56:26 PM
A holiness I felt reading these words put in such a beautiful art form! Vivid pictures I am seeing in my mind and hearing the sounds from your words written. Omniscient...God eternal Spirit!
The Silent Flute (Poetry) - 11/18/2012 9:41:14 AM
Unpardon me but I relent it boldly;
For it is far ahead, if I can be sure of it,
And far it is, that my hallucination be valid,
And hallucination it is, as it should be,
And however, unlike itself, mysterious, unknown, and untested,
So it be foreseen in my tireless search.
Alone in the Mojave (Poetry) - 11/16/2012 3:29:57 PM

Compassion (Poetry) - 4/6/2012 6:46:13 PM
A fine Acrostic and the subject couldn't be more worthy. Compassion is sorely lacking in our world. Kindness seems so foreign to so many, sadly. Meaningful poem, Peter! ~Best, Elizabeth
The Silent Flute (Poetry) - 3/31/2012 5:10:12 PM

What a way to laze away the day and your poem says it all. I like your poetry but it will take me a while to read all of them. I chose the ones appealing to me by title today and you filled up some of my lost and lonely time.
The Silent Flute (Poetry) - 10/8/2007 2:29:05 AM

All Just An Illusion (Poetry) - 8/1/2007 10:38:02 AM
Yes, innocence is something that is never valued by ourselves until it is gone. Interesting write and showing what it must be like to wake up and realize the wealth lining your pockets. Though I have never been afforded the opportunity to view life through these eyes, I have been able to view it through the eyes of a simple carnival worker. Whether you be high or low on the totem of Man, others always seem to eye you suspiciously or with ridicule. Great write, got me to thinking! :o) Take care
At My Side (Poetry) - 7/27/2007 2:59:40 PM

... Silent Flute indeed, Peter, and, like others below me, we ALL wonder how we missed this, if, indeed, we did, and have asked ourselves where your presence is gracing these days! :)) Thank you for lighting my page with your comments today and I hope you are well and continuing to receive, perceive and reflect truth and understanding wherever you're concentrated. As for this far-reaching and soul-stirring poem, I love the range, breadth and height of it and its sense of physical and spiritual liberation, all caught up in the wings of the fire of love. An eternal flame burns on this page. Bless you and Be well and fruitful. Love, Kate xx

Peter, "The Silent Flute" is stunning.
As a reader, and admirer of your work I felt myself soaring.
I was there stanza after stanza filled with the lush imageries you shared.
Although not mentioned my mind also felt emotional textiles too, however as an artist you painted vivid colors against my memory.
Thank you, I consider this a bold, and powerful work of art,

Romantic drscription of love.
The Silent Flute (Poetry) - 12/1/2006 3:49:13 AM
Once again Peter, you take the reader there, and not only to that place of"torrid heat and gentle zephyrs", but into the the depths of the mind and the very heart of romance. It doesn't get any better than this Poet.
"the touch of love
is without any equal
gilded lips of eternal bliss
soft the leaves rustle
within the canyon
lost so deep
in your mirrors of attraction".
Your work is always a gentle inspiration.
The Silent Flute (Poetry) - 12/1/2006 3:41:09 AM
You share so beautifully such passion of the eternal love that is unrestricted, unconditional and sometimes this kind emotion is the one that can so easily be unrecognised. Superbly crafted as ever dear Peter. Love and hugs, Panda :)

Awesome write, Peter. I'm glad to see someone else write poetry without puctuations. I do it too, thou have sometimes people have been critical about it, I still do it. EXCELLENT write.
The Silent Flute (Poetry) - 11/30/2006 5:43:22 PM
The lute's music is heard by few. One needs to carry the respect of nature to hear it for Kokopeli stills plays in the in-between. I've missed your wisdom and messages Peter....a whole bunch!

Those two lines send me far into the land of imagination and reason. Thank you, Peter. You are a POET yes, in capital letters.
The Silent Flute (Poetry) - 11/30/2006 2:03:04 PM
Sir Peter the Empyreal ...
A beautiful confession of love for your precious one. The title arouses in me the passions of what was, and what could be, if we but keep our eyes fixed upon love and its author.
Like drops of dew on silken leaves.
Never rest your quill dear companion ...
Light and Wisdom ...

Your spirit comes through this work. Those we love, and those we don't, but particularly the ones who left a positive mark in our hearts, are forever with us. Thank you, Peter.
On Our Distant Horizons (Poetry) - 11/27/2006 1:14:10 PM
To have loved and then be parted for whatever reasons is emotional as this one for me to read. Powerful and beautiful penning here Peter.....
I was so blessed to read the expressed emotions in moving poetry.
On Our Distant Horizons (Poetry) - 11/27/2006 1:09:49 PM
Ah Peter, how true. Everyone we love throughout our lives leaves their footprints on our souls.
I love the line, *the dna of love, forever entombed within our souls
Excellent write. Peace. Joyce

Sir Peter the Magnificent ...
Just a delightful write my friend. Filled with insight, wisdom, and love. The essence of your heart for your soul mate illumines the pages of the fine letters for eternity.
"so I my beloved, move endlessly around your orbit
configurations of blinding emotions, known only to us"
reveals the deep and abiding emotional and spiritual connection you have with your love. You are a blessed man dear friend.
In deep admiration ...

I need to find this DVD, as my browser would not "hold" (keeps flipping off) the web page you've given us.Sounds very interesting...
The Law of Attraction (Poetry) - 11/20/2006 3:29:32 PM
I've seen several of the people in the tape on a tv program and know about this law of attraction. they also gave seven thoughts to think of upon awakening each morning. Actually this idea is in the bible for anyone who knows about exegesis and has faith enough to believe.Thanks for sharing it, the video is well worth watching.
The Law of Attraction (Poetry) - 11/20/2006 2:02:14 PM
I watched it in its entirety, and deem that what they have actually "discovered" is the mind of God,!
We writers/poets/authors "create" stories, etc. with our thoughts. As a grandma, I "create" memories for my grandchildren - by thinking them first!
Those who believe on The Christ, have been given the new mind of Christ! "All old things have passed away..."
We both know that Jesus is all about Creation...... and energy, amen? After all, He is LIGHT!
A film worth watching...thank you, Brother.

At times it is good to be reminded that what we have done in our pursuits has been in accordance with the Fathers will for our lives. How easy it is to get waylaid!

Ain't time a mess! Several people I know have lost loved ones over short periods of time, as much as week to week! My good friend just lost her youngest son yesterday. Seems like things are going in cycles again, as if to prepare me for my own series of losses with my elders in the family. But Life is about change, and our ability to change with it as God directs.

yes indeed Peter, there are those who are the catalysis of spiritual developement, initiating an enlightened reaction from the source of the great alchemist ... on the other hand, organized religion is an autogenuous stimulus, independent of and often the antithesis of the truth it proclaims to administer ... it is a means of controlling the masses through fear and deception ... i do not profess a belief in the devil, except for being the negative influence in the collective psyche of mankind but if it existed, organized religion would be it main course of control ....

On the otherside of the coin, God has used the univesal church to bring the message for over 2000 years, without the catholic church where would we be. We owe much to St Benedict, St John of the cross, the first pope St Peter, a church that has stayed faithful to the bible, His word. Have you ever read CS LEWIS Srewtape letters...
Catalyst (Poetry) - 11/5/2006 2:13:37 PM
Yep. It is the great diverder, I must agree. Even in the best of times Organized Religion is a scar across the face of good men and women, who only want to live their lives as they think He would want them to. Organized Religion? Not all that much difference to me than organized crime . . .

A case well-stated with much admirable spiritual conviction and human compassion. Thank you for lifting the lamp of your faith and sharing its light with the multitudes:-)

Your words excel as a Catalyst! We forget that God's intent was (my opinion) for all to benefit from one another; from our Earth; from the beast and fowl; from all God has freely given us. Yet, there are the greedy politicians, CEOs and "church" leaders (who seem to glorify themselves rather than God) that would do otherwise...all in the name of God! And too many followers easily persuaded because of lack of true faith.
I find even the Bible being corrupted with interpretations, as well as those who would preach from it...and this saddens me.
Certainly, we reap what we sow. Or allow it to be.

Peter you brought Coelho to mind for me with this superb work...'Sometimes in the middle of an apprently endless battle, the warrior has an idea and he manages to triumph in a matter of seconds'...your words and spirit positively shout off the page my dear friend in a concise literary victory and once again the soul feels revitalised. Much respect to you Warrior of Light! Love Panda :)

Satan has performed his greatest trick and sleight of hand,... by seperating man from man, brother from brother, sister from sister,.... in the beguiling and duplicitous guise of Organised Religion.
And I think he's been doing it since mankind first walked the earth. I much prefer Private Religion - one on one with the Creator of All Things.

Case rested, waiting for the jury to return the verdict. Lest the only true Judge renders his on. Deep thoughts within these lines.

You nail this with "who is both Absolute and Omnipotent" For nothing is beyond the maind of almighty God...good write Peter

Very good. Sometimes 'organized religion' can blind us to the reality simply because the 'messenger' is confused... Great 'prose' ponder.

To argue, feel a separation from or superiority over another because of religion, is one of the greatest wrongs that plagues mankind. Each of us is a child of God and as such, is perfect in His eyes. We would all do well to try to live up to His image of us and to learn that He is always there for us if we reach out to Him. Very nice prose, Peter.

Peter.............OH This is tops thank you....... I believe God has the Devil on a small chain too and he is alive and awake and knows all moves in this earth..... You rested your case very well. I also sought the wisdom and insight of this one. He is no respector man or woman God allows both to follow and to flow he is a great God. jesus always deferred to the Father excellent Peter.... I would love to visit and Bible study with you.... Some good points and the ending is so true and excellent... Judgement will come one day.
I do agree a side with Dai on the organised I think man tries to make God fit the plan.... So much has been done in the Name Of God that God has not authorized and he takes the slings from all sides.... Thank God he is a Awesome Giant God over all and he can handle them :)
Light & Love,
