You are a good storyteller.
ED's Cowboy Way (Short Story) - 7/9/2006 5:00:50 PM
Very well written and, although sad...is a part of Americana that we all need to feel in our own way. I did! uI felt all the emotions as though I was there. I want to know more about the cowboy way. I've been an admirer of cowboy poetry for many years and , believe me, Baxter Black would be just as proud of your pen as he would if he's written it.
Well done Ron...now give us a little Dylan.
I'm happy that you finally got this piblished.

Sounds like Bushit. Common sense is not the strongest suit of this nation.
Thanks for info.
Love Walking Hand inHand (Poetry) - 7/13/2010 7:18:25 PM
I hope the marriages of today with our young people still feel this way. This is the way God intended for man and wife to live. Your poem made me recall how difficult it was to watch older couples walk hand in hand or arms linking when my ex left after 38 years. I thought about all the blessings and the trials we had shared together, but alas no more. The vivid memories become clouded with a different set of emotions when recalled only by one and not by both...one wonders why can't the one that left, the one that took a different path, what does he recall now, how does he feel if he/she allows the mind to recall the years spent in marriage with the first one, or the second one, etc. Thank you for reminding me of what a true couple should look like.

Destiny (Poetry) - 7/13/2010 7:07:42 PM
Short and poignant, Ron. Isn't it interesing that the three major religions (Judaism, Islam, and Christian) have existed for so long, but a co-existence does not seem possible anymore? All three have God at the core of their beliefs. Yes, I am taking some liberties here because of the name "Allah" used among Muslims.
The Doors of Life (Poetry) - 7/13/2010 6:59:22 PM
I had a detail response almost written, and my computer jumped out of this site (well not literally). I am going to simply state, your poem left me with mixed feelings. Your writing may be too deep for me to totally understand. It did make me ponder and I will simply state my feelings without as much explanations. Parts of me felt sad, and without hope, I thought of extinction of some life forms and others continue to produce offspring to live and then die. The last four lines gave me more hope for a happy life. "Doors with windows" made me think of someone looking out but never venturing outside their safe domaine, only to watch others interact and truly experience life, and if one is willing to take a chance it may lead to a better life, a real life, and not one based on fantasies and dreams. I hope this time my comments will post. Thank you for making me think. Paulette

The Gathering (Poetry) - 8/21/2006 12:09:34 PM
Wonderful thoughts of your reunion Ron! I felt like I was there. Ienjoyed your sharing it, thank you.
The Gathering (Poetry) - 8/21/2006 7:46:34 AM
Oh, how moving, and with touch of melancholy, Ron...
I love horses...my [deceased]father-in-law owned a thoroughbred years ago..
Recently, I went to my own first family reunion - since a massive stroke almost five years ago..
It was wonderful and my ability to laugh out loud was restored, which was so miraculous, it brought tears to my eyes ...and all those looking at me.
We, too, are missing quite a few, and it sure makes one aware, that WE ARE the first line of defense now......no more buffer zones.
Sharing the threads of love that run through our family-lines is important..but knowing where our thread is headed, and to which spool we belong to, is everything!
Glad you are in my Family, Ron!
Bless you, Rhonda
We All Know a Joe (Poetry) - 8/20/2006 8:20:46 PM
My Joe... is my husband.....and he's a good and godly man, too.
I agree with Eileen...lots of them are angels who have been assigned to make the way easier for us.
Good write, Ron.......I think you ARE a Joe

Me too Ron. Ir's good for the soul to revisit one's past. It's your credibility abd it's where your emotions and passion started growing. It's always good to revisit the past. It's why we are who we are!

Not Worth Loosing What I Want Most (Poetry) - 8/13/2006 9:45:34 AM
Ron this is a powerful poem! We all need to visit the desert of self reflection to get a clear picture and keep ourselves in balance, before we can come out into the beautiful asis! Excellent work!...
We All Know a Joe (Poetry) - 8/13/2006 5:33:07 AM
Joe was less of a hick than Abraham Lincoln, much nobler than Dick Cheney, a better person than JFK, not worthy of impeachment like Nixon and certainly not like Clinton. Joe was my Daddy. He was six foot three or so and strong with broad shoulders, and had a face that held integrity more solidly and through more hardships than any man in all of history. He died a hero, saving another man's life. Your average Joe? You don't know him at all.
Life is Like a Yo-YO (Poetry) - 8/12/2006 9:27:15 PM
Yep! Life is always a roller coaster and we're forever with out radar sticking out to keep us on our toes. We make choices and always hope we make the right ones. Later is when the answer comes.
We All Know a Joe (Poetry) - 8/12/2006 9:15:21 PM
I've been fortunate to meet many a Joe or Mary just like this Ron.
Thanks for this deserving pen.
We All Know a Joe (Poetry) - 8/12/2006 9:13:41 PM
Amen! It's so true Ron! I once wrote a poem about the people in our lives that make a difference, who are unselfish and always there. I think many of them are angels;-) Excellent poem!...Eileen
Life is Like a Yo-YO (Poetry) - 8/12/2006 8:46:29 PM

Life is Like a Yo-YO (Poetry) - 8/12/2006 3:04:23 PM
Ron you have describd the yin yang and all of its mystery. The dualities of life are always intriguing. Excellent poem!
Love Walking Hand inHand (Poetry) - 8/12/2006 6:46:36 AM
this is very special...a testament to enduring love! I'm always impressed when a poet uses an 'almost rhyme' that actually works, as you did in the final couplet!
Will We Ever Learn (Poetry) - 8/11/2006 9:57:18 PM
Ron, I have to agree with the others. humanity does not know how to live in peace and never will. Sad as the may sound.
Will We Ever Learn (Poetry) - 8/11/2006 3:27:41 PM
This world, as Susan has postulated, will never find real peace until the Prince of Peace returns and takes back His creation.
Richard Lloyd cederberg
Will We Ever Learn (Poetry) - 8/11/2006 2:51:32 PM
The world will never be peaceful.Man is the creature worse than animal defending their grounds. It's inborn to defend...it'sa male thing to be the leader of the clan and defend their property.
Once There Were Scars (Poetry) - 8/10/2006 10:47:22 PM
I'm so glad you said no regrets Ron! They do nothing but stifle creativity and make us miserable. I had to give up regrets too, and Ilearned to enjoy my life without worrying over the past! Excellent poem!...Eileen
Once There Were Scars (Poetry) - 8/10/2006 10:40:37 AM

Once There Were Scars (Poetry) - 8/9/2006 11:03:12 PM
Excellent, as you so well put it, sometimes it is best to let go and simply move on, loved this,
Once There Were Scars (Poetry) - 8/9/2006 5:46:33 PM
Close the door and be conditioned. I know the drill and it works fine once you make up your mind to hit the floor running. You're going to be just fine. Put a name on misery and then slame that door Ron. Moving write.
The Traveling Man (Poetry) - 8/9/2006 4:01:27 PM
I'd say you are very fortunate. To see all you do and appreciate it is a wonderful thing Ron! also being alone is not the same as being lonely. I treasure my solitude. Excellnet poem! Eileen

The Traveling Man (Poetry) - 8/8/2006 7:18:43 PM
a well written account of self-realiztion in a landscape of experience ...
The Traveling Man (Poetry) - 8/8/2006 6:59:43 PM
I know that gypsy spirit well. I know the spirit, the curiosity that compels some to travel but...I always look forward to home. It's the little things I miss when I travel...my art...my old chair and my bed...not to mention my family back in Savannah, a whole bunch.
Your poetry is like my grandfathers'. He never stayed too long in one place...always looking for something.
Great poem about the gypsy spirit, Ron.
The Doors of Life (Poetry) - 8/8/2006 12:06:31 PM
This is true in every way.
The Doors of Life (Poetry) - 8/8/2006 10:50:43 AM
As lomg as one door is open and you have a choice...why bnot take it. Your pen says it all. Everyday we open some doors and close others always hoping we let the right people in.

Tender and sweet and still dedicated love. This can never be replaced, You will always have her as a Guardian Angel looking out for you.
A Fathers Grief (Poetry) - 8/5/2006 8:45:32 PM
Just today I was speaking to another member here at Author's Den who lost his son in Iraq. So many die...so many aren't even given the defenses that is due them in the first place. Some purchase their own bullet proof vests and even pay for armour for their vehicles. War certainly has changed and America sure hasn't provided the defense it once did for our forces. This is a great disappointment to me and I'm not on the frontlines.
Your poem here is a sad tribute to a loss of priceless proportions.
The fate of our sons, daughters, fathers, mothers etc...should be the number one priority of our leaders...our president. Since Viet Nam...nothing has changed when itcomes to the void a loss leaves when war claims another American. It's time to think about why the word "priceless" means more to the families who've grieved (grieve) than it does to our own Congress and President.
A Fathers Grief (Poetry) - 8/5/2006 7:01:18 PM
That's a long time ago Ron, yet the memory lingers on! Nam was a terrible war for those who had to fight it.It left scars on all of us for various reasons. It looks like we never learn doesn't it?

A Friend of Long Ago (Poetry) - 8/4/2006 9:17:06 PM
This would be Bobby Zimmerman and one of my favorite poets to this day. You were fortunate to have him as a friend growing up in Hibbing, MN.
Looks like you're feeling much better and I'm happy that you're back here at Author's Den. keep getting better...take care!
A Day Without Sunshine (Poetry) - 7/28/2006 11:23:35 AM

Superb poem, Ronald!
When the Good Guys Won (Poetry) - 7/21/2006 7:27:07 PM
Ronald, this nostalgic look back really touched me deeply. I so miss those days too. I watched Broken Trail twice and look for those old westerns whenever I can. I so hate the violence.sex bad language of today. There seems to be no winners either, just as your poem asks. I almost get the feeling that we are all losers in this present culture!
When the Good Guys Won (Poetry) - 7/21/2006 4:01:29 AM
Hi-ho...giddy up!!! There was Roy Rogers and Dean Evans...Cisco Kidd and Gene...Sky King even was considered a siper gero by me. I recall Saturdays as though they were here yesterday. Saturdays were good fun instead of cartoon characters who slime everyone and pick their noses. Those were the days. I sat in front of the TV with aluminum foil on the antennaes and snow all over the screen...and with a towel safety-pinned around my neck I woudn't move...awesome great memories brought to life again because of the memory nudge your poem gave me this morning.
Moving On and On (Poetry) - 7/20/2006 7:13:41 PM
One door closes and another opens. Eventually we find the right door but just because one closes doesn't mean we need to stop looking. It's always gonna be that little man in the back of your head whispering, "Psst!!! Let's make a deal".
Great poem for looking withon one's self.
Moving On and On (Poetry) - 7/20/2006 2:57:33 PM
Sometimes life comes at you that way. Your poem makes the points very well. Excellent work!

Happy Jack (Poetry) - 7/19/2006 4:39:24 PM

Saterday's Are Meant to Sleep Late (Poetry) - 7/16/2006 4:13:23 PM
Isn't life wonderful when we have more pep in our step? When life opens a door, the first energy of light that peeks in is like a shot at the beginning amd then you're off.....rounding the first curve...taking the back stretch like a shot in the dark...rounding third and ...
Just remember...ya can't make it home till you take your foot off of third.
I love this verse.
LIfe is a Gamble (Poetry) - 7/16/2006 4:07:54 PM

LIfe is a Gamble (Poetry) - 7/16/2006 2:35:54 PM
Life is a gamble, but that's depending what you're gambling. Many people say, "No risk, no gain"; but that''s just referring to "life" itself.

We have all had love and lost it at sometimes in our lives. But you said it so beautifully, how it really feels. It touched my heart. Something tells me that one day you will find that true love.

Nothing like a new day, coffeee and hand-tied flies. I'd be fishing for rainbows in a NY minute.

Aw, I feel for you. My little wonder
dog had to go in January.
This is a sweet poem. God gave us
dogs to bless us in so many ways!
Stand Up and Cheer (Poetry) - 7/10/2006 1:44:01 PM
Right on! I'm cheering with you!

Ron, I am so very sorry for your loss. We place so much love into our pets and they return it mny times over. Killer came into your life for a reason and you two put 18 years into dedicated living with each other.
My blessings and prayers are with you.

It is hard losing a faithful pet.
Worse to have to put them to sleep.
A sweet tribute to a dear friend...

I like this poem. It;s a little melancholy but all the same it speaks wisely of life.
I returned home last night and back to work today. I enjoyed my family and some really fine cooks on my daughter-in-laws side.
Where are you these days? Still in the Smokies?

a fine, heartfelt tribute! Makes me want to give Poncho an apple and a kiss!

You're absolutely tight Ron,
This could be the Unknown Soldier or a son or brother..sister or mother...friend..it doesn't matter for the one's who fight for peace in any capacity deserves the respect and honor from every free citizen in this world and those oppressed who deserve frerdom. Very much deserving verse.
Have Some Fun (Poetry) - 6/19/2006 6:03:58 PM
This poem has me written all over it. I love days like this when my feet hit the floor running. I never know what I'll end up doing. I only know I'm going to have fun doing it.
I see that having energy like this makes for a fun and energized poem for you too.

Good I like this one especially the ending line.
Fishing With Dad (Poetry) - 6/19/2006 4:52:06 AM
On the river bank I received much better than a hug
I think you did, Ron; and having fished the Mississippi myself up in Minnesota, I think you and your father have picked a wonderful spot.
Fishing With Dad (Poetry) - 6/19/2006 3:54:48 AM
This is a sweet and memorial tribute to you and your father and the way silent dedication can grow between a father and his son. Well done Ron!
My Dad (Poetry) - 6/16/2006 4:00:00 PM
This is an incredile poem of tribute to your father. As I read your words of praise I think of my own father and just how you and I seemed to have father's who gave us the best gift there is...passion for our surroundings and dedicarion to preserve what is here. I admire you and now I know where your honesty and love for nature comes.
I'm honored to have you here at the Den with me.

Look at Eileen...my true sis...picking up on your poetry and the photo you allowed me to use. Awesome Ron and here's hoping you will add more of your creative side to The Den. I welcome you and seems two of my favorite ladies have before me. That's what I get for having appointments but you were in good hands then and you'll be in super hands here with the rest of us. This place is a bit of heaven most times. Your poem could've been under the pictute you so graciously allowed me to use. I love the way you took that same picture and gave it character that was a little different. Just goes to show that poets have different points of view and we all are connected spiritly.
Welcome to the word world of poetry.
Love and peace!

Excellent sharing. I also loved the photo Susan used that you took. Beautiful work!

A drive in the country truly can be wonderful therapy, Ronald; and you've penned the thought well.
