Recent Reviews for Kathy Kubik

Universal (Book) - 2/18/2007 10:28:42 AM
From Eva Schultz, writer and novelist: Just wanted to give you some specific feedback... Favorite lines: "Ghosts can hide in the light" "It's pointless to expect news in Sao Paulo" "placing index on white light" "I sigh; the trees concur" "My thoughts are shards of static" Favorite poems: "Your Sky" - the contrast of astonomy terms and poetic language is unique and surprising "Android Blue" - a longtime favorite because it tells a story; I always wonder what happened before and what would happen next "Through the Fishbowl" - it is just right: captures teh subject, tells its whole story, and lets it go Great job!

We are sure that there must be, a lovely story. B&R

There are Trains in Heaven (Short Story) - 6/22/2006 11:33:53 AM
Sad but sweet in the fact that someone still thinks enough to take enough time to spend with their aging parents in this day and age. It is amazing how many parents and grandparents are plunked in a nursing home and left their to stew in the lonelines of age. Fee

I AM THE NIGHT, COLOR ME BLACK (Short Story) - 6/20/2006 10:18:01 AM
Wow, Kathy this is awesome. you have managed to combine the sensuality of the whole twin experience with the pain of betrayal and desire. I hope there is a sequel to this for I found it a great read. Fee

The Tagsale (Short Story) - 2/4/2006 9:18:03 AM

Hi Kathy,so nice to hear from you again and I think this sounds like a great group. I always tell people I talk with who think because I have a few books published I am going to be rich, that if they are in it for the money they will starve quickly. LOL Ain't it the truth. Fee

Kathy, This is an awesome and powerful poem! These lines especially grabbed me: "The earth curls, roots twist through tunnels. Unborn streets spilt into two cities both inaccessible." I see I am behind in your books, will be catching up very soon! I always enjoy your is exceptional in its depth and understanding of the human psyche, especially the female psyche. P.S. I've been a way for a while, but I am finding my way back!:)

Kathy, This is powerful the images, pain, emotion you express very well in this poem. "With the aid of several pills, I'll be beyond its kiss soon. Mannequin arm clutches a life-size pillow. But no sterile stuffing can compensate for the weight that is gone. " Light & Peace, Joselyn

Horse lover here, and I liked this write. Sad when only memories of better days are left.

highly visual - the sounds and rhythm the train opening to the memory, closing line conjures her, the horse and the journey. Nice!

Pink Horses (Poetry) - 6/30/2006 6:31:19 PM
Fantastic short story! Imagery superb! Oh, how I love horses and anything to do with them... Now, train rides will equate to horse rides!! Kathy, please read my short story "Meeting Wild Horses" for another imaginary ride! I'd be honoured! Love of Horses Suzie :-D (I had a horse when growing up called: "Alpine".)

Pink Horses (Poetry) - 6/30/2006 4:22:08 PM
This is a short-short that I can see on film, so strong is the imagery. I want to shout to her as she walks off, "its not too late"!

Moving, and very well written.

Blue" "sings the blues" of an unmatched union without seeds of love. An enjoyable composition in poetic grand. I salute You, Poet! Long healthy creative life through a blissful living. Andre Emmanuel Bendavi ben-YEHU

Blue (Poetry) - 6/16/2006 9:57:53 AM
Adoring the pulsebeat of the 4th stanza and the smooth way this transitions. It holds my attention from beginning to end, sort of like a marathon of connective thoughts. It's like more of the same love experienced by this woman, but somehow, the love changed. . . but the carpet of aspirations and hope has worn thin, like an old carpet that had to be replaced, but has no memories. Saving this to ponder and admire (and to share) this poem. Planning to visit your website soon when time allows. blessin's, Sis Kathy, nice to meet you here, cynth'ya lewis reed

Blue (Poetry) - 5/25/2006 1:34:54 PM

A very realistic and deeply touching write, Birgit and Roger

Blue (Poetry) - 5/8/2006 10:31:44 AM
This is quite an emotional trip...the flow and rhythm are excellent, good use of metaphor and imagery. All in all, this is damned good poetry.

Blue (Poetry) - 5/8/2006 9:50:06 AM
Perhaps what the poet in this work tries to say so touchingly sad an poignant is too often real, but, it can also be the time for re-evaluating life and a new beginning to a world that has changed since the carpet was torn up. Perhaps when the blue paint is stripped away another treasure of life will emerge with love and children and all the abc's of true happiness...perhaps Felix

Blue (Poetry) - 5/8/2006 9:36:00 AM
wow, today is a day for poems that touch me...this was heartbreaking

This is beautiful poem with a deep heart felt meaning from the heart. Words mean so much and are felt so deeply from the title and the words.

Songs in Red (Poetry) - 4/9/2006 7:04:07 PM
this was an excellent example of color study. i try them once in a while (but never well). i'd like to think since you started with red, you'll move on to the rest of the rainbow. that would exciting.

Songs in Red (Poetry) - 4/8/2006 7:03:47 PM
Kathy, Brilliant!!!!!!!! You paint a beautiful poem. (((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

Quiet Time (Poetry) - 3/9/2006 7:53:20 AM
Ah, Kathy Kubik, a powerful write!! You painted a true picture, sadness and all, pierced by the love of those who are left. We have this scourge in our family, too, and it is heartbreaking. Stay with her, even though she does not know. Hugs,

Picking Pomegranates (Poetry) - 3/8/2006 6:16:48 PM
Absolutely love this poetry of a magic moment.

Near Miss at the El Station (Poetry) - 3/8/2006 6:14:56 PM
I quite agree with Regis. And that last image just pulls me into that world.

Visit to an Unmarked Grave (Poetry) - 3/8/2006 6:10:58 PM
Can't believe no one has read this poem. I used to visit old graveyards myself when I was younger. It was an experience both peaceful and solemn.

A Sunday on the Hill (Poetry) - 3/8/2006 6:06:52 PM
"cheeks flushed doll red" Sometimes the smallest turn of phrase can make a whole poem.

Goodnight, Moon (Poetry) - 3/8/2006 6:01:50 PM
Reading this makes me think this may be how my grandmother felt (and may still feel) after my grandpa died.

Yellow Walls at 1 a.m. (Poetry) - 3/8/2006 5:59:41 PM
Why do I need to watch a movie with special effects when I can see and feel everything right here? I think you and I have something in common in that we both see a lot of poetry in the mundane. I can tell it's not just the wall that makes this poem, it's how you feel about it. Enjoyed this very much.

Quiet Time (Poetry) - 3/8/2006 5:56:13 PM
Wonderfully strong poem.

Quiet Time (Poetry) - 3/8/2006 4:34:40 PM
Kathy this has the dramatic impact of a freight train hitting a car, It brings back so much pain to me of nights I do sat with loved ones in hospitals who were mere shadows of who they had been. You have captured the essence of hospitals and sickrooms and the depressing gloom of being helpless to do nothing but sit and hold ahand. FElix

Quiet Time (Poetry) - 3/8/2006 1:58:55 PM
This is something. I fellowed your words and I saw the beds, smelled the smells and thought the thoughts. Wonderful. Sad. Sadly wonderful.

Yellow Walls at 1 a.m. (Poetry) - 3/3/2006 5:56:48 PM
Kathy, Richly imaged, the reader gets lost in the everyday scene...very well written! (((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

Yellow Walls at 1 a.m. (Poetry) - 3/2/2006 4:39:22 PM

Cold Comfort (Poetry) - 3/1/2006 12:40:38 AM
a fine piece. the more things change, the more they stay the same (sadly)

Cold Comfort (Poetry) - 2/25/2006 12:01:41 PM
Thank you for the lesson, Kathy. Love and peace to you, Regis

Letter to My Unborn Child (Poetry) - 2/23/2006 1:41:32 PM
what an unexpectedly fabulously magic poem! i'm short of words, but let's just say 'you are the real thing'. thank you.

Cold Comfort (Poetry) - 2/23/2006 12:32:08 PM
God, what a thing to go through. You make it all too real, Kathy. . .as is only right. Beautiful, beautiful job; shameful, shameful situation. I salute your courage!! I will never forget the way the two pre-adolescent girls who had been grudgingly admitted into a formerly all-white school in Pittsboro, NC., trembled as I stumbled through an explanation of the hearing tests I was there to administer. Having been subjected to boos, hisses, glares -- God knows what else -- they sat looking everywhere but at me. I wanted to cry. As the school system's speech therapist, it was my privilege {if a great challenge physically} to work in every school in the county. Otherwise, there was NO integration of teaching staff. I don't know how long it went on, but the situation was the same when I left three years later. Thank you for using your talent -- which is awesome+++ -- to educate and tug at the public conscience. Not that you do it for thanks. Just don't know how else to express my admiration. You are nothing less than a phenomenon!! 'Pea' <3 ~~~PS: Having submitted poetry to littles and literaries for nearly two decades, I know how difficult it can be to break into publications such as the Mississippi Review {hope I am remembering right}, and others that have featured your work. Takes more than talent. Takes dedication!! Hard work and perseverance!!! B R A V A !!!!!!!!!

Cold Comfort (Poetry) - 2/23/2006 8:23:24 AM
It takes courage to make change. I'm reminded of something Jim Brown the football star said and I paraphrase..."It takes revolutionaries to make change, every generation needs them." A really thoughtful tribute.

Cold Comfort (Poetry) - 2/23/2006 3:34:00 AM
Yes . . . things . . . have . . . changed, and for those who don't want to believe that things have change are walking around with blinders on, or are seeing what they want to see no matter the reality. Is everything perfect? No. It will never be. But . . . things . . . have . . . changed.

Cold Comfort (Poetry) - 2/23/2006 3:10:11 AM
I found this deeply disturbing which is not a bad thing as it's impact tells so much of what it is really like to be a target of racism. I was a racist, in some regards I may still be. However I am learning to overcome my racism and it is through education. Not the kind you learn in school but the kind you learn from living, talking, sharing and laughing with the very ones years of brainwashing had taught us as kids were inferior to us. There is hope. Each generation learns less and less from the racists before them and more and more from the real people beside them. I hope this make some kind of sense to you and that it doesn't sound like I am a complete idiot rambling on and on. I am saving this piece and hope to use to spread your message if you don't mind. Felix

Cold Comfort (Poetry) - 2/22/2006 7:27:46 PM
Kathy, Shattering write. I would hope we have grown past that, but some things haven't changed. Prejudice still rears its ugly head, especially in these uncertain times. Thank you for penning this powerful tribute to Ruby. (((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

Goodnight, Moon (Poetry) - 2/17/2006 4:54:24 PM
Kathy, I was moved by this poems power! You take the reader from the soft dream-like peace of gentle slumber and then jar us awake with harsh pain of loss. I loved it! Anthony

Your Sky (Poetry) - 2/17/2006 3:07:53 PM
This is truly amazing poetry--you go from distant constellations to "the moons of your fingernails."

If I were a Tree (Poetry) - 2/9/2006 6:08:07 AM
A poet's joy and strength is in being able to place themselves within anything, and see out as though we were it. Wonderful write, Kathy! Peace. Joyce

If I were a Tree (Poetry) - 2/8/2006 5:37:15 PM
Never imagined that being a tree could be so rewarding, well done, Birgit and Roger

If I were a Tree (Poetry) - 2/8/2006 2:23:59 PM

Drawing the Line (Poetry) - 2/8/2006 12:41:32 PM
EXCELLENT, Kathy! I LIKE this greatly and what a wonderful introduction to your work! Thank you so much for your visit to my page today, and think I will just revisit these stunning images and fine metaphors you have penned for us here just a couple more times before I reluctantly take my leave for now. Funnily enough, my mind has been working on a colour swatch to describe having a Yellow Fever innoculation... but I would never have conceived of anything quite as deep and mind-branding as this. Very well done! TY Kate xx

Drawing the Line (Poetry) - 2/7/2006 4:13:34 PM
Yes, you have captured the essence of the writer and poet really well in this one, almost erotic in it's sensitivity to the written word. Felix

Drawing the Line (Poetry) - 2/7/2006 3:36:10 PM
Wonderful! Gave me a new perspective on my work. We do bleed, do we not. You penned it well.

Drawing the Line (Poetry) - 2/7/2006 3:17:29 PM

Kathy, I see the author's own answer within within. Didn't you say: First it strokes my arm, reassures." and "His picture smiles still on the bedside table" and, most of all, "He built it brick by brick his laughter once raised this roof" You fit here/there because he is there/here. Cherish the ghosts of memories, but, laud, with actions, lives shared. Your piece is truly touching with its rawly purified wonderings, lilt and solemn sadness of intent, and honor.

Goodnight, Moon (Poetry) - 2/3/2006 2:47:10 PM
Beautiful and poignant poetry, with enough sadness instilled within its stanzas to touch the most callused old heart (that would be me).

Kathy, This has a claustrophobic feel to it...terror inducing imagery and powerful, chill inducing writing. Excellent! (((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

This (Poetry) - 12/9/2005 1:12:54 PM
Very intense look at something too often ignored, the full moon and the crescent moon steal all the fame and glory. Felix

This (Poetry) - 12/9/2005 9:10:58 AM
Kinda got a bit deep with this little piece, didn't ya? Just goes to show you how differently our minds work, I would never associated a half-moon to "letting go." Will from now on, though.

The Snowflake Process (Poetry) - 10/24/2005 4:36:00 PM
You make me s e e him. Wish I had known him! It's a pretty sure bet he would burst with pride over this "snapshot" of him lovingly polishing his canary jewel. The poet who polished the poem until it shone even more brightly! Who knows but what he was looking over your shoulder as you were writing? "That's my girl," I hear him saying. "Don't know about that magic business." L o v e the imagery in this deeply touching and memorable tribute. So glad I didn't miss it!! 'Pea' <3

Harold and his Purple Crayon - Hurricane Katrina (Poetry) - 10/24/2005 1:11:45 PM
Kathy, how precisely you have captured this wish we hold in our hearts... and I remember this favorite children's book and its simple lines, simply but precise, simple but efficient... all that was needed to encompass, hold, protect. How we have complicated matters... Wonderful.

The Snowflake Process (Poetry) - 10/11/2005 2:25:04 PM
