Cup Final and Apples (Short Story) - 3/29/2010 5:34:44 AM|
Thanks for bringing back those "golden" memories of a great bunch of lads and team! We had built up a bit of "needle" against West Boldon after the two replays as we had not been expected to progress. I agree that the third game at West Boldon be behind "closed doors" during school hours to try and prevent any more bad feeling! I was on the touch-line with my little white hanky when the entire West Boldon school marched out of the school and took up position on the opossite side of the pitch. I had the West Boldon parents on my side of the pitch! They all thought we were going to be lambs to the slaughter! How I remember John´s hat-trick! West Boldon was silenced! As soon as the final whistle blew it was home lads for our own safety! Hope you are all still well and thanks for those days.

It's amazing how long love can last. After 44 years, I still consider my wife as my lovely bride. Problem is, as we move on together, one of us must pass before the other!
When The Weather (Poetry) - 2/2/2011 1:10:05 PM
Very clever Steve. I happen to be one of those people that the weather DOES seem to affect. Right now in Pittsburgh, it is blowing hard and snowing. that to me is uplifting. But on the days of overhead gloom and gray skies, I try NOT to become affected. Maybe its a real physical condition due to air pressure.

:) This is one any poet can relate to as the muse inspires us to burst forth with words inspired by gorgeous beauty of all kinds.

:) This is wonderful :) One of my good friends is from up the northern way, near Durham, so I enjoyed this. Damn, you write really, really well. It is so wonderful to also read about such a great love that you seem to share.
Room On Top- If Only (Poetry) - 1/1/2010 10:13:09 PM
This is well-written, really tight (no pun intended), I like it alot. Plus, it reminds me of my first of 4 trips to London and a poor man who was stuck in the middle of the tube, holding on the the thingy hanging down from the top of the car, and being all crammed in like sardines, and at the next stop, MORE people actually tried to squeeze in where not even a mouse could have squeezed and the man in the middle yelled, "EXCUSE ME, CAN'T YOU SEE THAT NO ONE ELSE CAN FIT IN HERE??" LOL, thanks for the memory and the laugh.

This is so true.
I know folks in their 90's still active and moving all over the place and folks in theie 70's who are in park.
Nursing home is a curse. Don't want to go that route.

What a brilliantly sensitive, yet achingly honest expression of this son's thoughts about his mam's new life. I lead worship services in a couple nursing homes and have also worked in a few, so this rings so true. You have chosen just the right words and built a mood that can communicate in a moment a whole spectrum of feelings.
An amazing acomplishment Steve! -your friend, Zach

I can see the waves and the seagulls in my mind all the time. Two of my favorite things. Don't know what the gist of this poem is but I do see seagulls in the lake near my home even though 3 1/2 hr away from the ocean.

Profoundy sad and yet many a port city has lost its mainstay, leaving the towns peopel to wonder where they will go...

River That Aches (Poetry) - 6/27/2008 9:32:03 AM
Such a sad tale about how things are being destroyed by man or nature. It's hard to get back what is lost.
River That Aches (Poetry) - 6/27/2008 6:56:08 AM
I think you could write an entire novel called "The River that Aches"--this is a vivid picture. I was born in New Orleans, visiting just once after I left at 3 months of age. Luckily, I visited the spring before Katrina. Good write, Steve. Eileen

You have to keep visiting them in the nursing home, or they don't get good care. If they know family members are dropping in, they take better care of the aged. Sounds as if she had lots of good times when she was out of it. i know it is hard to put your loved ones in a home, but sometimes it has to be.
Nursing Home (Poetry) - 5/24/2008 2:05:00 PM
It this what we all do
Wait for our kids in an aging queue
Once a week recall past days
This surely is the saddest phase
..poignant words..alas so true..
I have six, three of each gender, at times I wonder how it will fare when old-age hits the fan..LOL!
Nursing Home (Poetry) - 3/21/2008 6:29:48 PM
I did my clinicals at a nursing home & it is not the best place for many people as a career choice & also not for family members. You write grieves my heart for those forgotten at homes like that. I hurts what I have seen & also reported.
