Well you've hooked me. Who is the man in the cave? Who is the master? Where did Tara go and what happened to her? But more importantly what has and will happen to Ling? Please continue this project and let me know when you finished. Good luck!!

I like the first better, more concise but conveys the image well.

I agree with Fee, I like the flow and rhythm of the first stanza. Hope this helps.
Working Draft (Poetry) - 2/27/2007 12:04:52 PM
I like both versions but the first would be my preference, it has a nicer flow and rythem to it when read out loud.

Southern Comfort (Poetry) - 7/20/2006 10:15:46 AM
Interesting use of hope and dissappointment. Sometimes are hearts are so big the burden becomes too great and othetrs take advantage. All we can do is try.
Southern Comfort (Poetry) - 7/20/2006 8:35:17 AM
A lie is a lie wherever we stand...
And once a person lies, they have to lie again to cover the original lie, and so it goes on..
Great poem that underlines the importance of being earnest and sincere..
Southern Comfort (Poetry) - 7/20/2006 6:28:57 AM
Gotta love it! The poet described, in an exact manner, the plight of a would-be lover who knows not how to love. Hello over there in Lake Charles from Houma.
I Have a Dream (Poetry) - 7/18/2006 5:49:46 PM
Great to have a dream. But one must live the dream too...
I Have a Dream (Poetry) - 7/18/2006 3:21:57 PM
Yes sometimes,as in the case of Martin, John and Bobby, even the act of dying became in it's own way a decisive win for the causes they stood for and so for them. We all have to keep on trying with the hope that we too can someday win.
Well done Linda,

We should always be content with our lot, and strive to build on our
You have an endearing way of delivering a salient lesson wrapped up in candy !
The Ballad of Crazy Old Al (Poetry) - 7/18/2006 4:03:40 AM
See now that wasn't so hard to post. LOL Actually I love it and it did bring a big smile to my face first thing in the morning so thank you. Though humourous it is also a good life learning lesson on the old adage that the grass is not always greener on the other side. Well done Linda, well done.

le dragon (Poetry) - 7/14/2006 5:07:32 PM
I read this, this mornung but was not awake enough to understand.. LOL at 2 am it now makes sense.
We can do whatever we like. If it is in the Lords will, nothing can get in the way of his glory. He can also work with us when we get it wrong but with right motives.
Only when motives are greed and jelousy, then devils grins at our sins...

We can't do a single thing of our own accord, without the Grace of God..
And this is a most magnificent and poignant pen..
It reminded me of my own father's final days here on earth..
le dragon (Poetry) - 7/13/2006 5:39:11 PM
Linda this is a magnificent remembrance.Eloquent and most beautifully written!Thank you for sharing. This is a keeper!

le dragon (Poetry) - 7/13/2006 1:49:25 PM
My God this is an incredible write, it touched me deeply and brought back long forgotten memories of my own mother and father's fight with the dragon. This poem should be published and posted in family rooms at hospitals throughout the world for it would give hope when hope seems lost. Thank you for shareing such a beautiful work of art Linda.
For You (Poetry) - 7/13/2006 1:35:16 PM
Very impressive style and presentation here in this poem though I wonder what the heart would say if it wrote and not the mind...

Delightful write that touches the soul
The Sacrifice (Poetry) - 7/6/2006 8:34:14 AM
A good one. Usually I don't like preachy stuff...it usually comes off all wrong and self-righteous, but you have a winner here.
Each line is perfect.
The Sacrifice (Poetry) - 7/6/2006 8:20:17 AM
Sweet spiritually touching write that you have done really well.
The Sacrifice (Poetry) - 7/6/2006 6:46:30 AM
The greatest sacrifice is when someone lays down their life for us...
Our Lord and Saviour made that greatest of all sacrifices for us..
And in our everyday life, our loved ones are making sacrifices, for the greater good..
Very interesting poem

A Sign (Poetry) - 6/30/2006 2:24:47 PM
Where I live is an old Saxon site, with old yew and and oak, the oak looks tortued being a few hundred years old. Yet it has a feel of inner wisdom. I look at it thinking it was here when Henry Viii was alive...
A Sign (Poetry) - 6/30/2006 7:02:00 AM

The length and breadth and scope of your faith in God, and your veritable experience of life is awesome..
I loved that definitive line " But Patience with God "....key passage for me...
Having three sons by the Grace of God I can relate, each is different in his own way, but utterly unique before the eyes of God !
Great poem....you are better at these than you realise...:)
A Promise (Poetry) - 6/27/2006 9:26:26 AM
You describe the refractions and contours of the brilliant prisms
of color that flood the evening sky in sheer brilliance and radiant glow..
This has that feel good factor about it, that elevates the spirits...
Living STILL (Poetry) - 5/22/2006 10:28:29 AM
Good. This is what poetry was defined as- long ago. It is spontaneous outpouring of strongly felt emotions. Your heart is in the right place. I liked the sentiment.
Living STILL (Poetry) - 5/22/2006 9:40:42 AM
I felt this one and brought back chilling and painfully sad memories of my own fathers funeral who was also a vet, when they played the last post and folded the flag it was if a part of me had died as well. Great capture of raw emotions.
Living STILL (Poetry) - 5/22/2006 9:09:14 AM
