The Song (Poetry) - 11/20/2012 10:53:45 AM
I always thought that jungle sounds were primarily those of wild animals. And then one morning, I awoke early on the edge of the jungle in Guatemala. The cacophony of sound was deafening. 90% of that sound was bird calls, and less than 10% could be attributed to wild animals.
The Song (Poetry) - 11/19/2012 11:27:36 AM
yes all songs are somewhat different
Intentions (Poetry) - 11/15/2012 8:41:19 AM
There is a lot going on here with thoughts racing through my head. From fighting to the stars, our world is paved with good intentions.
Intentions (Poetry) - 11/14/2012 3:17:52 PM
wouldn't it be wonderful if good intentions were fruitful and grew...a nice write eleanor
Intentions (Poetry) - 11/14/2012 11:49:17 AM
Indeed a nice piece of work this is, Eleanor! "Divine intentions do grow" and will ever prosper too!
Intentions (Poetry) - 11/14/2012 9:41:47 AM
So many enemies,so little time. "Can't we all just get along?"
The Glow (Poetry) - 11/12/2012 7:54:48 AM
My glow comes from within and not from some mythical external source.
The Glow (Poetry) - 11/11/2012 1:37:57 PM
So true, no day is the same, yet everyday is a gift.
s you say.... Gods gift! Go with the flow... love it, for it makes me think of water, how it flows and overcomes every obstacle.

Together We Fly (Poetry) - 11/8/2012 7:02:49 AM
I think that mean discourse and suicidal thoughts over matters that we can control need to be redirected to what we can do with our lives. Friendships are okay as long as they are positive. The individual has to have enough strength to move forward in his or her own life without relying on friends to be their guardian angels.
Together We Fly (Poetry) - 11/7/2012 5:46:58 PM
so very true
Where (Poetry) - 10/29/2012 6:54:05 AM
A search for the meaning in life, with a powerful ending of where the source is. Your troubles impelled you to write beautiful poetry.
Where (Poetry) - 10/28/2012 3:17:28 PM
nice one eleanor...liked the flow
Where (Poetry) - 10/28/2012 2:54:04 PM
A stable and honest penn. The light so real, that gives us that ineffable power, is within.
Good rhyme; meter, almost in couplets.
NOW (Poetry) - 10/23/2012 7:54:25 AM
This poem has a lot of good advice built into the idea that we must live for today. Do I detect that, at the end, we must clean the house?
NOW (Poetry) - 10/22/2012 3:59:18 PM
wonderful wording and vision
My Promises (Poetry) - 10/16/2012 10:32:34 AM
Those wiser than me have said until we repair, rebuild, and fix ourselves we have nothing to give to others. You are well on you way, Eleanor. Good luck and God speed.
My Promises (Poetry) - 10/13/2012 12:33:50 PM
By writing the poem you be a good start. Studies show that women lie most often to try to prevent someone pain. Unfortunately, lies like this sometimes cause greater pain than the truth. I try not to promise more than I can deliver. I know it hurts people when I don't promise, but it only hurts for a little while.
My Promises (Poetry) - 10/13/2012 8:38:29 AM
keep promises to yourself
Dark Places (Poetry) - 10/8/2012 7:18:38 AM
Let us hope you can make a new life out of all this. New cures come out every day for diseases thought incurable. I'm waiting for stem cell spinal cord therapy.
Dark Places (Poetry) - 10/7/2012 5:14:41 PM
there is always new life beging even as old life ends
Dark Places (Poetry) - 10/7/2012 11:16:47 AM
The phoenix rising comes to mind. We all have our rock bottom and we have to make a choice...do embrace the dark place or rise above it, allowing the light of God to help us. Good for you to have chosen the light, and to give testimony of it here, in this wonderful write. Thank you. Be well, Kathy
Essence (Poetry) - 10/7/2012 10:42:17 AM
Very beautiful poem Eleanor which clearly defines a very association of love! Thanks for sharing.
Dark Places (Poetry) - 10/7/2012 10:27:42 AM
I feel so much melancholy for you Eleanor and there is always hope, prayer and God doesn't put, give or allow things you can't handle, HE's there to lift you and is the ultimate healer! So don't despair! Stay prayerful as HE strengthens you! Your poem has very descriptive wording yet sad but very well written. I was deeply touched. Thanks for sharing it and may God Bless you and keep you.

The Storm (Poetry) - 9/16/2012 12:41:22 PM
Growing up in Wisconsin, by winter's end I found the storm no balm but only a rigid, frigid white desert silently waiting for spring.
The Storm (Poetry) - 9/14/2012 4:15:49 PM
You painted a beautiful picture with your words, stunning~
Hey Hubby! (Poetry) - 9/13/2012 9:27:33 AM
My wife and I married on the cheap. It was probably a good thing, because it didn't last too long, only three years. We even divorced cheaply… $200.
Money certainly leads to arguments in a marriage, but I don't think it has much bearing on how long the marriage lasts. You poem and your marriage is proof of that.
Hey Hubby! (Poetry) - 9/10/2012 4:50:06 PM
That was sweet! If I remember correctly, our bands were $9. So we bought them, but didn't hire an organist because that would cost $15. Hey, it took! So, maybe you CAN live on love!
Congratulations on your 29th anniversary!
The Laborers (Poetry) - 9/4/2012 7:44:18 AM
Unfortunately, most people are not leaders but followers. They spend their lives following other people and laboring for the next generation, not their own.
Growth (Poetry) - 8/21/2012 2:37:43 PM
Wise and heartfelt.
Words (Poetry) - 8/13/2012 11:36:28 AM
Sometimes when we are not careful in choosing our words, we reveal the real we. I suggest we don't censor so much so that the real words come out.
Poet's Pen (Poetry) - 8/12/2012 10:26:26 AM

Your poem touched me deeply.

Thank you for sharing your message that we are never alone in our struggles.
My Beloved Children (Poetry) - 7/26/2012 5:04:46 AM
A very inspiring poem, it's really saying to us there is hope with God, we just have to trust Him daily.
My Beloved Children (Poetry) - 7/25/2012 5:10:29 PM
Amazing poetry. Hope you read my page about my Grandchild.
My Beloved Children (Poetry) - 7/25/2012 12:13:14 PM
The good in all of us shines through, letting us know that while evil exists and sometimes bad choices are made, on the whole we are headed in the right direction.
I share the same optimism.
My Beloved Children (Poetry) - 7/24/2012 12:12:24 PM
A fine and loving exhortation from the Most High to His creation. More than ever people need to press in, pray, and reach up. Your faith shines here. peace to you ...
Desert Waste (Poetry) - 7/11/2012 1:23:36 PM
More than just a nature poem, you have touched on a human condition. Very descriptive and compelling.
On another subject, I just saw today again a picture of the desert close to the border, littered with thousands of black plastic bags left by people entering the country that way. It is sad to see the desert treated like that.
