Deep Down It's Them That's Strange (Poetry) - 10/16/2012 2:27:47 AM|
I remember when my son came home with his first black eye ... I was horrified at the fact someone wanted to hurt my child. The same emotion comes through with this poem. One can only hope that one day this stuff will not be a part of our world :-)

Being a great fan of colour this poem made me feel like I should go and get my pencils and DO something with them. Beautiful!

You've been on my mind Panda, and I just had to come back here for a second or too to see if you had left a part of you for us to read. Our lives must both be filled with something that poetry will capture some day...soon I hope. I do enjoy your poetry...so soothing and absorbed so easily into my mind's eye.
My best to you sweet friend,

"You complete my world, sharing my entirety whole."
I have this same feeling for my husband - my other half, the half that makes me whole.
May this love all light your fire, be by your side and fill your lives with memories.
Panoramic Heart (Poetry) - 9/22/2007 6:41:42 PM
Absolutely wonderful to feel so free and in love. This is such an endearing write and perhaps a tribute to one who has lifted your spirits and helped them to sour to reach new heights....

"my cup filled full of the joy of you."
Oh my, this is so poetic and tactile, and in context to your sentiment in this write ... it's so ... well ... like I want to stand up and applaud dear Panda for this wondrous blessing you've both been bestowed. Seems you have come full circle since we met back in the middle of 2006. This whole affair brings me great joy.
Blessings to you talented friend, your boys, SHR, and that delightful pooch.

SHR and Mojo (aka "Chic magnet") have softened and seasoned your magnificent pen my friend. My blessings to this man who has loved you back to life and it's passions...who lets you see yourself through his eyes...who gives you that special kind of peace. True love is a blessing beyond words. It wraps you in it's cocoon and cuddles you safely. It nurtures your existence. It ignites your spirit.
Your happiness is contagious, dear Paanda...revel in it and I'll borrow a little and share a lot. Perfect way to begin a day.
You are very perceptive! ;-)

Two States Of Mind For One (Poetry) - 8/18/2007 3:42:26 PM
Missed you and this poem is just one example of why. Simple words built into complexity that stimulates my mind of what was, what could be and what is. Excellent. Liz
Two States Of Mind For One (Poetry) - 8/14/2007 3:08:51 PM
The imagery in the first strophe is so real to me I felt as if I could have been the protagonist at one point in my own life. Yes ... for awhile in my twenties I used to be a manipulative self-deluded jerk!
The reality (#2) is a picture of someone who has gleaned strength and wisdom from the struggles and has not given up. Bloody excellent dear Panda. Welcome back!
Two States Of Mind For One (Poetry) - 8/14/2007 3:01:26 AM
So glad to see you back at the den, you are missed while you are away. This is a powerful and profound write, yes I think we are all guilty of this...much as Felix stated we often say one thing when deep down we mean another, sometimes out of fear, sometimes out of respect, and sometimes just because....I'm not really sure, unless it just seems easier or maybe it causes less pain...nevertheless this is a well constructed offering my friend, one that does linger on the mind of the reader...welcome home...
Two States Of Mind For One (Poetry) - 8/13/2007 9:56:42 PM
Our souls allow us to write compelling poetry when we rise above and beyond the wounds. My gosh Panda, I feel so aligned with your thoughts and revel in your strength and revelation.
It is so strange that you were on my mind today...so much so that I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me when, almost simultaneously, I received word of your post snd and a message from an old friend. I suppose that adage may be true, sweet friend...out of sight perhaps, but never far from mind. I owe you a long letter...I haven't forgotten.
It is a joy to find you back here...now I must do somethig about making my presence known more often when the dust settles a bit. I haven't forgotten that bottle of Barolo either!
Much love and your work is as stunning as always Panda,
Two States Of Mind For One (Poetry) - 8/13/2007 9:25:36 PM
Oh I hope so sweet friend! Welcome back it's been far too long and you've been missed! Thanks for sharing yourself with such candor and excellent poems to provoke our interest...I look forward to more;-)
Two States Of Mind For One (Poetry) - 8/13/2007 8:17:54 PM
So very lovingly written. Many paths have crossed, but in time the truth reveals itself in true love and compassion....
Two States Of Mind For One (Poetry) - 8/13/2007 5:37:27 PM
It is amazing the things we say as compared to the things we truly feel, whether it be an answer to a question like "Honey am I fat?" which of course instead of saying will yes dear you have put on a few pounds we say...fat, are you kidding, where do you come up with these silly thoughts...

Deep Down It's Them That's Strange (Poetry) - 4/19/2007 4:05:45 PM
How did I miss this one, Panda...I'm embarrasingly behind, as usual, but I'll catch up for sure one of these days.Yours is a git always , Panda and this hits home so hard. I remember coning home in tears when girls were cruel...and I think they are far more so than boys (says one mother of sons to another). The same goes for the times my own came home a little battered and bruised in body or pride. Growing leeons are tough to teach and ewven tougher to stand by and watch powerless.
Completion (Poetry) - 4/19/2007 3:45:17 PM
This resounds of happiness to me, Panda...and this is the perfect form in which to espress profound sensitivity and that exquisite closeness of love. When you find this, it is worth the wait.

Delightful and joyous, this medley of 5-7-5's dear Panda.
The magic associated with human touch is one of Gods greatest gifts to His creation. There is something undeniable when people connect. Like an invisible river that flows, and ebbs, back and forth, oblivious to all except the meaningfulness of the moment. Well done!
Blessings to you dear friend ...

Saturation! (Poetry) - 4/2/2007 11:12:33 PM
Upliftingly positive, dear Panda, as the trance of romance is in re-entry and the pains of the past are dust under foot. Love is stupendous when it treats the heart, soul, and body to the magnificent overflow. Passion presented with intelligence, spirit, art, and style, my friend...as always. Those last two lines are deliciously real... :)
Saturation! (Poetry) - 4/2/2007 11:17:19 AM

Intense, real feelings of total and utter love seem to be the heart of this write that you so wonderfully penned. To be in such a relationship may be difficult at times but must also be soooo rewarding to the heart.

Deep Down It's Them That's Strange (Poetry) - 3/25/2007 4:37:21 AM
Boy do I KNOW this feeling! That was the toughest part in being a Mom..having to allow them to evolve via the terrors of the school ground..being there yet being nowhere..
superb write should be pasted on all school notice-boards.

Amazing write to come back to the den with, as you let the reader dwell on the questions you seem to ponder with them. Their is a fine line between the too as any parent can attest too. As well life runs through this poem or perhaps the poem runs through life but either way it is smashing for sure.

Glad to see you posting, missed you around the den...an excellent write my friend, a serious one at that! Thought provoking, and well written, sounds like a valley of decisions to me...enjoyed this much!
Sustenance or Succour? (Poetry) - 3/12/2007 2:50:00 PM
A profoundly important question that only the individual can effectively answer. Sometimes decision making requires an inordinate amount of faith, and not just intellect. Your write is an excellent introspective look at the seriousness of making the correct decision.
Welcome back dear Panda!

In can be good sometimes Panda.
Life is certainly a mysterious beast that pulls and tugs at our hearts and minds and bodies and often takes us on the roller coaster ride of our lives. Your image is indicative of one of life's sweet simplicities that too often gets skewed.
This was a satisfying write that brought thankfulness into my spirit like rays of light. Hope all is well.

Nice to read your work again...isn't it amazing how we can find pleasure and delight in such simple things...my husband and I helped birth a baby goat today...wow! It was a feeling like no other!

An excellent piece Panda, one hopes that this is a fiction based on reality rather than experience. Your imagery is outstanding and achieves the transition of state superbly.

Hmmmm, Miss P.......If we remain constant, it is truly amazing what the horizon may hold, especially when we are not looking. I am convinced that every step is but a stone in the right direction, we just have to get past the bolders and pot holes and look for the sensitivity and calm in the correct shade of blue...or green as the case may be. Do our lives run in parallels sweet friend...I suspect that when two become friends, their lives can mimic one another's under one moon...a bright and refreshing and lasting new one!
My love and friendship for the coming year and in respect and thanksgiving for the closure of one that is past,

"And Jesus saith unto him, The foxes have holes, the birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head." MT8:20
That was the only thought, my dearest Panda, which kept piercing my mind, as I read your incredibly powerful and heart-wrenching poetry!The graphic you chose reminds one instantly of the nativity scene...
You are simply amazing...
Love you& The Lads,

Past and Presents (Poetry) - 12/28/2006 11:43:59 PM
I can't help but feel the haunting chill as cardboard provides a pitiful, temporary home...that warmth from the flick of a match or the spirit of Christmas lights to see but not touch...pain fresh in the mind although past and the struggle one must endure to seek a new beginning. Oh Panda, such a fabulously crafted piece...it tears my heart apart, though I see it all to often.
Mon Papa (Poetry) - 12/28/2006 11:35:49 PM

"Past and Presents"
Unique, quite a powerful write.
So powerful makes one stop in their tracks with the reality it encompasses.
I loved every stanza Miss Pandora
"So when you see her dark sullen eyes
as she looks for some charity from your heart,
don't judge her for how she wails and cries
...this Christmas maybe she just wanted a new start."
This rings such a great message to society, and I say you never know where a person has been unless you have walked in their shoes.
Thank you best wishes now and upcoming New Year 2007,
From the Heart of an Artist Quiet Storm

A Sad piece Panda
I've seen this, at first hand
all over A large city.
yet they rather survive in the cold
then be place in a so call shelter
where their life's might not be worth a cent
from thugs and gangs that prey upon the hopeless
Love & Peace

Indeed the plight of the homeless is getting worse. Funding for facilities that take care of the homeless is inadequate due to increased costs, need, and severity of the illnesses and disabilities that are part of the homeless condition.
The United States has a major problem with this issue..it seems the land of plenty has lost its status as such. Apparently there are over 3million homeless people in the united States and the number is rising..
What is the cause of this?...There are many theories..I'd say the almighty dollar needs to be removed from its pedestial and the human being needs to become primary..
Croatia is fortunate in not having many homeless..people here have a big heart and the few homeless people there are do not remain as such for long.
This write should be printed in many magazines..
I've saved it..
Thankyou dear friend..
Past and Presents (Poetry) - 12/26/2006 7:49:12 PM
Warm passionate words flowing as real as the hurt the capture and project to the reader. Pandy you did this one so well I almost expected to look over my shoulder and see this pained and wronged lady waiting in the shadows.
Past and Presents (Poetry) - 12/26/2006 6:48:31 PM
it's difficult ro make a new start when one is homeless but it's never to late to try ... many have succeeded ... just as many have failed ... it all depends on how hungry you are to try to succeed ... the are many oganizations to help but many homeless are far too gone ... this poem effectively focuses on the sadness of falling to seek a new avenue of hope and the importance of not judging others who have fallen on hard times ...
Past and Presents (Poetry) - 12/26/2006 5:17:14 PM
Wow! This is a great write my friend, one that stirs the very soul of the reader, very thought provoking indeed. You've given the reader a look at the harshness of reality, for there are those who while we are inside in a warm home with caring and loving family, they are shiivering from the cruelty of the weather and others shivering from the cruelty of humans, as this lady seems to be trying to forget her cold and cruel past with the warmth of gin while also trying to shut out the weather as well. My goodness you've penned a deep and most touching write my friend. I love the way the story unfolded, and the last line is a bit haunting...this Christmas maybe she wanted a new start...there are many around the world who are in search or longing for a new start. Amazing write my friend.

There are certain routes into downtown San Diego now that are literally lined with the homeless for blocks and blocks and blocks. It is a problem bigger than anyone can fix it seems.
I believe that there are a few who are truly repentant and truly desire a new beginning - but finding these persons would consume ones entire life.
You touch a nerve here dear Panda. For some, it is only unfortunate circumstance, not bad choices, or drugs, or alcohol, or mental illness, that has put them in so horrid a place. Powerful write!

Dear Miss Pandora, your poem captures what everyman must do: charity towards those less fortunate than us. Alas we indulge in everything, but not in charity. Pity. We would have had a better world. Peace and happiness, Victor

Old memories, sweet and sour. You give a glimpse of this dear woman's soul and of how she ended up in this sad state. "Every
person is worth understanding." (Clyde Narramore)
I like the way her story unfolded, illuminated by the tiny flames until finally the last match burned out. You know how to stir the readers' compassion.

Justify It ! (Poetry) - 12/1/2006 9:21:36 AM
Wow, Jerry has the blinders on here as does Rhonda... these are mere justifications, for all their understanding they fail to answer the simple "why" and continue blaming... on and on goes the story... not that they would dare to admit much of the reason lies in an egotistical president that 3 quarters of Americans do not trust and at least 90 percent of the world see him for what he really is. Some of them still really believe it is about 9-11, how sad that they can't see the truth, even now and continue to place the blame everywhere except where it truly belongs... on the evil one they elected! The following quote is one of my favorites... "When facism comes to America it will be wrapped in a flag and carrying a cross." Wait... when it comes? More like it is here, and it officially arrived in the year 2000, and it used the events of 9-11 to quietly enter, when we were most vulnerable. It is a shame that many do not understand THIS terrible fact. Yet another wonderful write from Pandora's (poetry) Box.
Drifting In Symmetry (Poetry) - 12/1/2006 9:10:29 AM
I was drifting within this beautifully written poem, remembering the joy of a gentle subtle touch and how "love stirs the senses
while souls satisfy their endless destiny
unaware of time or place
two become one again, in passion, a sensual loving eternity." It's an outstanding piece and I'm glad I was here to experience it!

Oh my Panda, I just kept reading and reading and drifting and floating into this incredibly sensual, ethereal dream....do I have to wake up! Maybe I can just check it into my fantasy bank so I can draw on it at whim...or, better still, send it to someone special...
Drifting In Symmetry (Poetry) - 11/29/2006 9:28:28 PM
So achingly and sensually pleasing I find it hard to find the right description for this one Pandy. It is truly beautiful and so hot but yet so soft and endearing. You have captured just the right amount of erotica and love to make it spell binding. Bravo.
