The Birth of Cuneiform (Short Story) - 4/14/2007 5:21:54 PM
Hey Nicole, this story brings to mind a lesson that i learned when I went to school to become a medical assistant. Apart of our curriculum is to learn Medical Terminology. We had a very wise instructor that gave us book to learn through pictures. This help me to keep straight A's in Medical Terminology. When i have the chance i will send you the name of that book. Althought it is old, he will help so much when you start class. "All the best in your endeavors." Elaine Freeman-Anderson

You are a star, a little golden star, you suffered every penalty on this earth, but yet you shine so brightly, may your love and soul inspire others, tho wear their yellow star with pride, for we all have one somehow, sorry that my folks had to be the ones so abysmally cruel, but it's still going on in the world, it might not be a star, just a skin colour, ethnicity, or whatever!!!!!! Shine on, and Blessings! Jasmin Horst

A Mother's Lament (Poetry) - 4/16/2007 11:02:47 PM
we must listen to our little stars before their light burns out ... excellent poetry, Nicole ...

A Mother's Lament (Poetry) - 4/16/2007 9:38:47 PM
This has to be one of the most heart-wrenching writes I have read in a long while... "A Mother's Lament" truly is disturbing to another mother...especially having my own teenagers! At times I can feel their struggles with the new pressures of high school and friends who come and go...the images they conjure up out of misunderstandings...etc...It worries a parent everyday! We must never let a day go by without sharing our wisdom and concerns...staying on top of the problem before they even exists! Thank you for sharing...I know this had to be very difficult for you to write! My heart goes out to you and yours...Be Blessed~ Love and Peace~ Kimmy~

The Ruse of Perfection (Poetry) - 4/16/2007 3:53:06 AM
Sometimes just the stream of our heart, untampered with, is closest to perfection! Wonderful poem Nikki, sage thoughts.

The Ruse of Perfection (Poetry) - 4/15/2007 10:18:02 PM
perfection is indeed a ruse ... as so as we attain its desired state, it becomes stagnant ... on the other hand imperfection can be beneficial since its still in motion, striving to become complete ...

The Ruse of Perfection (Poetry) - 4/15/2007 7:51:52 PM
"...perfection the snake." L o v e it. Also love the jab at perfectionism. Often guilty of the arrogant thought that I can "perfect" a piece, I end up ruining it by over-editing. Thanks for reinforcing my determination to cut that s___tuff out.;0 'Pea' <3

Fantastic work and a hello from a new fan! My gosh, I feel as though I've just read my own biography. xo Taylor

The Ruse of Perfection (Poetry) - 4/15/2007 5:14:34 PM
What is on this earth can only strive for perfection, and be disappointed when it is not achieved.

The Ruse of Perfection (Poetry) - 4/15/2007 2:45:29 PM
This is taut and finely-tuned writing, Nikki. Not one word wasted and the build of your arguments is strong. Very interesting concepts expressed here and great final POV. TY Kate xx

The Ruse of Perfection (Poetry) - 4/14/2007 2:11:21 PM
What a beautiful piece you have penned here, Nicole. Perfection is in the eyes of the beholder. Never expect perfection, because you will always be let down. Strive for the best and perfection will shine through. ~hugs~ Karen

The Ruse of Perfection (Poetry) - 4/14/2007 12:57:56 PM
Hmmm I look in the shaving mirror and think.....PERFECTION.. then I point it at my face, lol

The Ruse of Perfection (Poetry) - 4/14/2007 11:30:18 AM
the key perhaps lies in the perception? for what can truely measure perfection?

The Ruse of Perfection (Poetry) - 4/14/2007 10:56:04 AM
Dear Nicole, Expectations of perfection usually end in disappointment. Let us all just say "we strive in every moment to do the best we can" and make that our goal. If we act with sincerity, we always reach our goal. A warm welcome back! Love and Light always and in all ways, Joseph*

The Ruse of Perfection (Poetry) - 4/14/2007 10:45:46 AM
"Perfection becomes obsolete"... long before it is ever found. And why? Because, as you so wisely say, dearest Nikki... "even gods behold not perfection", and, as we say here in Portugal, "the optimum is an enemy of the good". I absolutely love this, and what a glorious return, my friend! Love & lots of {{{{{{{{{hugs}}}}}}}}} Alexandra*

A beautiful tightly layered work of art. THE RUSE OF PERFECTION functions equally well as meditation on creativity and as an insightful commentary on the human spiritual condition. Greatly enjoyed the read. Aberjhani

The Ruse of Perfection (Poetry) - 4/13/2007 10:38:31 AM

The Other Side (Poetry) - 4/25/2006 4:31:42 PM
This is a sample of every side of the DARK days in the CITY and "The Other Side" of human social mind... A true diving into the sea of society and its ontological soul. Very impressive emotion was etched on the door of my heart while I read the poetical lines of "The Other Side". Keep posting, Poet! Andre Emmanuel Bendavi ben-YEHU

Oh chills as I read this. My son suffers from PPD/Autism and sometimes expresses self-abuse, a compulsion caused by brain disfunction...This is such a BEAUTIFULLY written and haunting write! Thank you for sharing this, Nikki! Lin PS Love Cameron's photographs. She saught to acheive the affect of classical painting in her work. Some might argue that if still living her photography would benefit by new technology but I disagree. It perfectly expresses the themes of the Renaissance that were popular in her day and is an F-stop in time...

A Real Blessing (Poetry) - 3/15/2006 2:33:44 PM
"What was once will again be...". Of that I have no doubt. The depths of who we are lay in the past. It pulses through our blood. And I beleive we carry memories in our dna from generations before. Love this write, Nikki! Superb! Lin

Nikki - I've read your work before. It's great, but I espeically like this one. A lot of meaning in so few words. The rhyme scheme is clever. I've printed this one to remind me how real poetry is written.

A Real Blessing (Poetry) - 12/25/2005 11:43:47 AM
heritage is so important...and so many of us share this heritage, despite our differences. great expression, poet, upholding what is eternally true, that we should always be seeking to 'know ourselves', in every facet.

A Real Blessing (Poetry) - 12/15/2005 4:30:19 PM
the Spirit guides us to the truth of who we are and as we hear it we know it is the only way it can be. Modern times is more accepting of the past, which is one of the miricles of the present.

Glad you're speaking out about this Sis. Nikki. Absolutely stunning connection between your interpretation of the portrait and a condition that has so many myths.

Society is quick to judge what it doesn't understand and in doing so send many people to a deeper hell of isolation, but everytime a mother, patient, or sympathetic writer shines light on an aspect of mental health a few more members of society are enlightened and perhaps a few people who struggle with mental health will be spared the stigma born of ignorance. Thank you for this write and much love to you and your child. ~~Nordette

I know of a few that have this and I hope they find answers, instead of the lack of knowledge that is out there so far. Thanks for bringing attention to this. Great write.

i understand the anguish you experience and i appreciate there is more to this condition than realized ... i would hope that science can one day understand the cause of this mental health condition and perhaps cure it or at least treat it more effectively ...

Wonderful transition from picture to prose!

You have described well the picture in words of how your daughter appears to you in her weakened condition. My prayers go out to you and your daughter and I do hope they find a cure for this mental condtion that leaves scars on a mothers heart as well.

Very emotional piece Nikki!! Hope everythink works out for both of you sis!! I have no clue how hard this must be on a mother!! You are in my prayers!! Love Tinka

I used to think like that until I read a biographical account of this young black woman on another site that was into "cutting." No, I don't believe it is a cry for help exactly, it mostly derives from a feeling of worthlessness, at least that is what I got out of reading this person's account of her ordeal. Mental? Most assurdly it is that . . . In spades.

Template To Insanity, Reality (Poetry) - 11/26/2005 9:55:52 AM

Nikki This is such a painful topic! I know someone who has fought this illness into adulthood. He is in his mid twenties and still has problems. You have written of it brilliantly!It must be so difficult to deal with in your own family. My thoughts and prayers are with you! Love, Eileen

The Other Side (Poetry) - 11/25/2005 12:29:03 PM
What you've done here is to put meaning and reason into every line if not every word. I took time to look and study, becasue you were kind enough to review my dribble. I'm glad I did, and I'll be back. Great work, Nikki. Probably too good to give away for free. Mike Gibbs

Emancipated Intoxication (Poetry) - 11/24/2005 4:35:35 PM
I liked this "Emancipated Intoxication". The depicting of the actions setting the net picture at the closing line with its brilliant imagery combination, made this a poetic grand. I salute You, Poet! Andre Emmanuel Bendavi ben-YEHU

Again, dearest Nikki, the breathtaking power of poetry splashing the vivid colours of unique imagery upon the canvas of the reader's mind. It's not easy to signal "the genius brushstroke" in what is, in its wholeness, a masterpiece, but I dare pointing out the first and the last stanzas as absolutely remarkable. They pack one powerful punch! What a pleasure it is to read your poetry - and if I've already said this, it's not redundancy... it's because it's true :0)! A most wonderful day to you and yours, overflowing with Love&Light* Alexandra*

Impressive. A fine and remarkable work committed to the truth of a world in which truth is precious and hidden like a pearl in a mussel kept entire seclusion.

Nikki, I could picture this on the front page of the New York Times in bold letters. THE BIG APPLE, TAKE IT OR LEAVE IT. I'll take the rural life anyday. I love your writing.

1936 New York city, probably a nicer time than we know now, isn't that the Brooklyn bridge in the background...? Maybe you know of the above poetic feelings from being there in a previous lifetime...? Still enjoy to see you posting now and again...Happy Holidays, Ed & Rufuz

The Other Side (Poetry) - 11/20/2005 9:57:00 PM
Very Evaluative write. In some cases, widespread poverty is of one's own making, replacing the real world with false illusions that pour/poor copiously from the bottle. It has been our history, is our modern-day culture, and will be some's future. Opposite, Hellbent, is the other side ... fuller living and more availability for our daily tasks and circumstances. It is the ones who take this path that are hungry for more depth, not thirsty for more drink. A very sobering write, Nikki! Sage

The Other Side (Poetry) - 11/20/2005 9:13:14 PM
Nikki this is dynamic poetry with a powerful message! Last verse summed it beautifully!Kudo's! Eileen

Nikki, Very well written. There's a little madness in all of us.

This composition can lead one to travel the cosmological brain to revive the psychobiological history of her/his Time, and then bring the reader back to earthly cycles to feel the emotions of her/his day. “Template To Insanity, Reality” makes me rethink ontologic concepts, and contemplate a better future. I salute You, Poet! Thank You for posting “Template To Insanity, Reality”. Andre Emmanuel Bendavi ben-YEHU

Template To Insanity, Reality (Poetry) - 11/20/2005 9:30:11 AM
some call it insanity, others "saving madness" ... excellent poem ...

Template To Insanity, Reality (Poetry) - 11/20/2005 8:40:33 AM
What if Poets - or writers - are, in fact, the guardians of secret visions of sanity that the non-poets - non-writers - insanely walk by, constantly, and yet do not see? A Brazilian poet and psychologist I deeply admire, wrote: "We can only give an account of the Real through the Symbolic, and in Art that possiblity exists. Rarely are the non-writers aware that, apart from being actors in them, they are actually the authors of their daily dramas". So... are we insane when we reinvent reality... or is this the only possible sane approach? ;0) Clever, wise - as is your attribute, my dear friend - and extremely well constructed poetry! I simply loved this, Nikki, bless you! Lots, lots, lots of Love&Light* Alexandra*

In a sense we are all mad, are we not!?.. I believe that is true, Nikki, and a very good piece.

Template To Insanity, Reality (Poetry) - 11/19/2005 8:52:23 PM
There is a quote somewhere that all poets are I tend to agree with your opening statement. The poem is well done in both form and imagery, with a subtle power to it. All in all, this is good work.

Template To Insanity, Reality (Poetry) - 11/19/2005 5:33:04 PM
Nikki this reminds me of how well you always used poetic images to stretch sanity to the limits like an elastic band stopping it just before it snaps. You're a magician!;-) So glad your back! Love, Eileen

Template To Insanity, Reality (Poetry) - 11/19/2005 5:07:30 PM

Such an excellent display of imagery and heart felt emotions. A possibility good can come from change, the question that always plagues A masterpiece of an explanation that seems to plague all of us. Welcome to Authors Den. I look forward to reading more or your poetry. Karen

Dear friend, I can't tell you how happy I am to see you back! Yes... and after a metamorphosis, which may not have been devoid of difficult moments, as metamorphosis - thus growth - are, it is indeed an awesome pleasure to see you "soaring higher than before". Many blessings of Love&Light* Alexandra*

Jung's theory of alchemy, the philospher's stone, turning base metals into gold, equivalent to the human psyche, as is the metamorphosis of the cocoon to the elusive butterfly. Your metaphor is spot-on! I love the line "A possibility good can come from change." Welcome to the den, Nicole. Sage
