There's a lot to be said for claiming he power of the present moment and harnessing it to move forward as this "Epilogue" so briliantly inspires one to do. Thank you for sharing it and have a great National Poetry/Jazz Appreciation Month.

"Look back, forget, and laugh"
Wise words spoken, for we all can be so humerous sometimes, and yet, we can't realize it until time passes, and we look back at how silly we were...

To Leave The Working Stiffs, Part 8 (Short Story) - 11/21/2006 6:05:38 AM
Hmmnnn seems like this character needs to look in a mirror himself and see what it is that he has that is so special. Sounds like he thinks He is all that, not the other way around. Good link though to past and present chapters.
To Leave The Working Stiffs, Part 8 (Short Story) - 11/20/2006 7:50:36 PM
"...And he didn’t like what he saw—
And a slight but noticeable
It reminded him of his Aunt Lossie--
The one who had had 8 children—
By 3 different husbands..."
For a minute there...I thought you were talking about me...ROFL!
but...he's such a swine...
Keep um' coming Wendi!
Love and Peace~

To Leave The Working Stiffs, Part 4 (Short Story) - 11/18/2006 2:58:29 AM
In a way I can soo associate with this character for after my forced early retirement on health reasons, it leaves me few options, I can only work so many hours because of health, and can only make so much money because of pensions...still I want to do somthing and it is amazing how inventive you get and how all offers no matter how bizarre become possibilities. Anyway I digress but a good new edition to this continuing saga.

Why Buy Poetry?? (Article) - 12/11/2006 11:48:06 AM
Great article...I have a suggestion for your poetry presents to friends, lol... How about my book of poetry, Thread Count, by Terri Kirby Erickson? Feel free to look up the reviews at www.amazon.com, and you can buy it there, also. Anyway, I do write and buy poetry... My favorite poetry lately is by Ted Kooser, who was Poet Laureate for several years. He is very real and accessible! Thanks for your thoughts and Merry Christmas!!
Cleaning Up the Mess... (Article) - 11/21/2006 4:03:38 PM
This view is from Canada and one might say 'easy for him to say' but what happens in Iraq also affects us. I'm afraid the US is going to have to step aside and see what happens in the coming years. They still have the ability to strike ( from carriers etc. ) and it may be smarter to employ their ability to move around rather than pose as stationary targets. I am also afraid that the battle for hearts and minds in Iraq is lost. Even a democracy there will be a hostile democracy
Cleaning Up the Mess... (Article) - 11/21/2006 10:37:41 AM
Good article Wendi! Although I believe Saddam did in fact have chemical weapons and posed a serious threat to the United States through his general support of terrorism and suicide bombers and through the efforts of our troops we have put an end to untold suffering in Iraq, the problem of social and religious turmoil remains and we must now take the correct steps to stop it. The first thing that must be done is to secure the borders of Iraq. Obviously, this will require many more troops than we currently have in theater. It's the same problem we have with our own borders here in this country. No one seems to be willing to take the necessary steps to solve the problem for fear of hurting someones feelings. Pollitical correctness is going to kill this country if we don't wake up and elect leaders instead of complacent politicians.

My Father Was A Soldier... (Article) - 11/13/2006 1:32:48 AM
Beautiful Story,Wendi. I wouldn’t want to do over again, that would be pushing my luck. But there are few goods things about the Army. When I first arrived at Fort Dix in 1963, I was quickly ushered about by shouting sergeants ordering me to join the mass of assembled young foreigners. Kids from far off lands like Queens, The Bronx, Long Island and even New Jersey. They all had foreign names, too. Names like, Kelly, Goldberg, Jackson, Russo, Hernandez and Kassavinsky. But there were also fellow countrymen from Brooklyn huddle among the
mass. Of course, they had more normal sounding names like, Weissman, Sanchez, O'Mally, Robinson and Chung. But regardless of our origins, we quickly realized we were all in the same boat. Strangely, within in a week, we all looked the same. It seemed everybody had decided on short haircuts and green suits for our daily attire. More important, we had stowed away our differences and became plain old G I's. We were still Catholics, Jews, Protestants, Moslem, Buddhists and atheists, of course. Then again, we still had our surnames,too. But we were a family now, suffering our hardships together. Our differences, be it religious or ethnic, quickly became personal property, and we all learned to respect each others property. Yes, we were all brothers sharing the same first name rather then last name. That first name of course was Private. It’s a shame that lesson couldn’t be learned under different circumstances. In any event, God bless your father and all those who kept and keep us from harm.

Why Buy Poetry?? (Article) - 11/11/2006 6:33:53 AM
Excellent article, Wendi! I agree with Rusty. I love snuggling up with a book of poetry that suits my mood at the time. I have many -- most are given to poets who've entered contests with a poem of their own, as part of the contest entering process. I love to read poetry, if only to get lost in another world for just a little while ...
Why Buy Poetry?? (Article) - 11/11/2006 4:53:10 AM
It is true that there is tons of poetry on the internet but I can't snuggle up in my favorite chair with my computer and read only the type of poetry that suits my mood at the time. No, I don't have a laptop. People should by 'books' of poetry. At least those who wish to sit, read and reflect on the words they've read. It is an interesting point you bring up.
Negative—But Is It Time To Move On? (Article) - 11/5/2006 1:32:52 AM
Nice article, Wendi. Democrats and Republicans, alas what a choice. ‘Tis the season to get elected, and perhaps nothing else really matters to politicians. All things considered, your astrologer idea has some merit. It would sound better than some of the excuses we’ve received for politicians in the past.

Uh Oh…More Trouble! (Article) - 10/28/2006 3:20:00 AM
Well written and thoughtout. Alas, throw the rascals out by all means. But do not hold out too much hope for the rascals you replace them with. Twenty years ago, a friend of mine was elected mayor of a town. He told me that when he made his first tough decision, half of the people in town hated him. When he made his second tough decision the other half joined them. The strange part is, he was reelected.
Uh Oh…More Trouble! (Article) - 10/27/2006 11:38:31 AM
I'm really enjoying reading your political articles. You are so full of passion!
My husband and I talk about this stuff all the time. We're both worried that we're on the brink of a cataclysmic economic crisis that would make the Great Depression pale in comparison. I pray that it won'thappen, but politicians and businessmen alike are making bad decisions. A country can't handle a negative trade deficit indefinitely. We need customers for our products and at the moment, Americans are less able to be those customers than they ever have been before. I know I watch every penny. How can I afford to buy things I want when the cost of groceries has risen 10%-20%?
I don't know...I'm voting democrat this time around but I don't really think they're the answer, either. (For reasons I have no time to get into now.) I have been keeping my eyes peeled for a worthy third party for the past 5 years or so. I haven't seen one yet, but I'll let everyone know when I do. :=)

Again (Just Don't Talk About It) Mail It To: El Presidente Bush
info(at)rnc.org----Is Correct E Mail Address
Ok...Not Again (Article) - 10/26/2006 12:56:59 PM
When I first heard about Bush's tactic change, I thought, "Oh no! What if it works?" I guess I don't have a lot of faith in the memory and intellect of the American people. :=)
But it seems that this time, we're not taking it and I'm relieved. I honestly don't even trust that the Bush administration is making a real change in their Iraqi policy. For all I know, the rhetoric has changed but the game remains the same. I still see no talk of definable goals and objectives. Timetables aren't the way to go -- I did agree with the Bush administration on that tiny little thing -- and amazingly that is the one thing they are claiming to change.
I found myself noding my head with you until you got to the part about the six-month terms. It's an interesting idea, although I shudder that the hateful political commercials would *never* go away then! The trouble is, I don't think congress needs to do MORE. I think they need to do LESS. It occurs to me that every time they do something we lose rights and things get more messed up than they were before.
I guess I'm a back to basics kind of girl.
Nice article. I'll watch for more from you.
Now That You’ve Convinced Me…What Do I Do? (Article) - 10/22/2006 9:54:14 AM
If people would simply take care of their own families, and give the gifts of knowledge to their own children regarding the way to make one's way in this world, rather than putting so much of their energy into bullying the families and the children of others, including ANIMALS, then there would be much less to complain about in our world.

A Deep Poem (Poetry) - 10/6/2007 7:15:12 AM
I like your message and I am one who respects variety. How dull it would be if everyone wrote the same way. There are so many variations of art, reflecting the individualities of the artists. Of course there will be differences in tastes.
I loved these lines especially:
"I believe that instead
One should speak out one’s truth
And poetry is means
To do that with couth."
"You are there—as lovely as the wildflowers
That inhabit the field in which we stand.
Together, we tumble
Like the tall grass"
Both excerpts show the beauty within. That matters to me, so much more than "form." Pen on!

The Thunderstorm (Poetry) - 3/25/2007 6:48:34 PM
You can smell it in the air before it comes; you hear the announcement of impending arrival; you smell it during the storm (mainly fear LOL); you smell the refreshment of air, cleansed afterwards: a wonderful capture of the birth and death cycle of a storm in beautiful lines (rhyming, yet): my ultimate compliment: wish I'd written this.

Employee Turnover... (Poetry) - 3/25/2007 6:45:35 PM
I can identify with this, BOY, can I...no wonder employers can't keep help with attitudes like this! Going through this now: manager hires new personnel and they don't show; they work one day and quit (no call, no show); leaving the few good ones to pick up the slack (and the pieces). Strongly penned condemnation to bosses, everywhere: WISE UP! Another excellent write, Wendi.

I think Cynth'ya said it best: how we judge others and can't see our own sins. I think the whole thing is tragic: and you capture it spot on with these lines:
"...Why we do
What we do
Is still the greatest mystery of all...."
Excellent thought provoker you have penned, Wendi; well done!

For Better or For Worse (Poetry) - 3/25/2007 2:20:27 PM
This matter was only skimmed over by the media here the UK, so I am not fully conversant with the case. But it is not altogether unique.
A sympathetic strain threads its way through this write. It has as its object an acknowledgement of the occasional lapse of accord between emotion and reason. In this instance it appears that passion became distorted and pursuit became a life threatening obssession. In the arena of relationship conflicts accepting that it can happen to any of us is fair comment. However we do have to be careful how far we extend our sympathy for lack of judgements lest we make the same allowance for those who commit henious crimes. I say this as a former student of social science where I was subjected to the absurd post - modernist drivel that all crime - including murder and rape - was relative - yuk!

I Thought About Christmas Last Night... (Poetry) - 12/12/2006 5:01:38 PM
Wendi, you have written this with such gentle grace. You spark the reader's memories through your own recollections of a most blessed event -the birth of your child. I think it works to bring into focus the fact that although the conditions were primative, a Savior was born into this world in much the same manner as our own children -naked and helpless. What an awesome responsibility for Joseph and Mary to have undertaken! Reading this certainly made me stop and remember:
"So, to those who balk at the season
The commercialism it has become
I invite you to stop and remember
The change in humanity that sprung
From this most precious of birthdays" Quite a gift I would say!
Well done! Merry Christmas!

No way you can argue with this logic. lol

Oh this is so deliciously cynical.
It does seem like a bloody vicious cycle that leads us back to where it started.

As far as I am concerned, Wendi (and as my father used to say) money is a necessary evil in this world. Love your thoughts here. Thank you. Love and peace,
Inspiration (Poetry) - 12/12/2006 11:27:21 AM
I can completely relate, Wendi. I don't write much. I wait for the thoughts and the words to come. I don't know where they come from but invariably, they do. And then, like you, I am excited and grateful. Thank you for this. Love and peace to you,
Inspiration (Poetry) - 12/10/2006 6:09:37 AM
Lena is correct, writers block is an experience itself...and it served as a great muse for you in this write, it is great. I usually can find inspiration within memories or the pages of my diary. I love it when I can read a page that was written twenty or thirty years ago and get inspired to transform the writing into poetry. Loved this!

Another excellent poem, Wendy. Forgiveness is key. Still many don't seem to understand the concept and claim they can't forgive, then they wonder why sickness abounds! Oh, you're very good!
Fearless (Poetry) - 12/6/2006 6:21:28 AM
Yes, yes, yes, Wendy, this is so true. Beautiful poem from a beautiful soul. Loved it. And yes, oh yes, we do have guardian angels that watch over us! Excellent!
Inspiration (Poetry) - 12/6/2006 6:18:07 AM
Wendy, Indeed, writer's block is quite an exerience for a writer! When you think about it, writer's block in itself is an inspiration. Your prose in this poem proves it. I enjoyed the read and thought, my word, I wonder what this poet produces when she is truly inspired? Now, I'm going to have to read more of you to find out. Great job!
(Thanks for dropping by my site. Much appreciated...now I have another friend.)
Inspiration (Poetry) - 12/5/2006 4:42:18 PM
Yes if we were not writers then we would not need to be inspired or have our muses waking us up in the middle of the night with their ideas. This write in itself is an inspiration so thank you for sharing it.

I deal with blocks
by writing about them
and before you know it
I've written a poem about dry ink.
Peace be with you

Who doesn't have a block now and again. I only wrote two poems last week and had to rely on some old poems to post. Then you might have a glut of them until the next block. So I have three folders on my computer, pending, posted and old poems. Victor

If I could write this creativly about not being able to write, I would...well, write, I guess. Very well done.
That causes idea and silky verse
To flow like honey
Secured in creamy,
Now that is writing
Inspiration (Poetry) - 12/5/2006 8:31:57 AM
You're amazing, Wendi! For someone with writer's block, you've written a wonderfully creative poem about it! Well done -- I wish my writer's block were as creative LOL! Always a pleasure to read your work, with or without your muse.
Love and respect,
To Mr. (Or Shall I Say Ms.?) (Poetry) - 11/30/2006 12:56:51 PM
Yes I also have encountered a fair share of people of this variety and the sad part of it is most of them cannot recognize their fate.
To Mr. (Or Shall I Say Ms.?) (Poetry) - 11/30/2006 12:16:41 PM
This is very good, Wendi -- you've captured the true essence here and as Rusty said, I enjoyed the consistent good writing you always exhibit.
To Mr. (Or Shall I Say Ms.?) (Poetry) - 11/30/2006 11:21:37 AM
Some people are more comfortable with someone under their thumb, keeping them down, than giving a thumbs up, to lift them up. Sad, but true. Enjoyed the consistent good writing here.

Indeed there are many like this, the Iago type, whose god is cruelty. But we know better. And knowing a little of you, I know you're not like that. Victor
Fearless (Poetry) - 11/30/2006 6:41:46 AM
Wendi, this is beautiful and every word is true. I believe in angels. Great job!
Fearless (Poetry) - 11/29/2006 8:47:58 PM
Really love this writting. Faith is faith. No need to despair, it says to me. Thank you...
Fearless (Poetry) - 11/29/2006 3:05:55 PM
Wendi, this is beautiful! Your thoughts ring true and are so comforting. Thank you for writing this.

Very nicely written Wendi
Support (Poetry) - 11/29/2006 2:11:07 AM
That was good of you, especially to support your child. The problem is most people expect us to conform. Presently in my old age, I prefer to write than watch soccer, and guess what, I find nothing to talk about with my relatives. So they tend to ignore me. I'm not going to please them, since I am not doing anything wrong but write. Victor
Support (Poetry) - 11/28/2006 5:48:52 PM
excellent poem probing into some conditions of being a child ... if you get the chance, check this poem out:
Support (Poetry) - 11/28/2006 4:52:45 PM
Amen sister...every child has the right to be what they want to be. We are each unique that's what makes our world so great that we may learn from each other. Children should have the freedom to express themselves in the way that they are comfortable. Your son may be a great performer, or he may choose to play piano as a form of relaxation or in church while works as an engineer...I agree with you and admire your spunk...afterall kids are kids...I agree let them have fun there only children once...I also agree that children should realize that they do not have to fit certain criteria to be excepted...this starts far to young and the sad thing it does come from the parents influence. Great and powerful write anxious to read the article. You sound like a great mom...you actually sound like my mom!
Support (Poetry) - 11/28/2006 12:08:09 PM
"Support" has one and only one message..."Support"!!!...our children deserve to be a part of the whole of diversity! Free to be me!
And as their parent, they need our "Support"! Amen!

Toxic! (Poetry) - 11/28/2006 12:02:11 PM

Excellent how this all came out, Wendi. Sounds like you handled it just right. Each child should be free of bullying.
What's On Sale (Poetry) - 11/27/2006 1:12:43 PM
I'm ready, too, Wendi -- what time should I be ready? We'll have lunch out, too, in between our shopping! Excellent poem full of fun!
Hurricane (Haiku) (Poetry) - 11/27/2006 10:52:15 AM

A perfect haiku. Not many like this. Victor
Hurricane (Haiku) (Poetry) - 11/27/2006 9:51:38 AM
This is a great Haiku, Wendi! I love it.
What's On Sale (Poetry) - 11/24/2006 6:21:20 AM
Wendi, this is great! I always see the news reports and hoards of people standing in lines in anticipation of getting in the store first to begin the annual Christmas shopping spree. The whole idea of people doing that is kind of sweet, that they are buying gifts for their loved ones, but it also means elevated credit card balances that many of them will spend most of next year trying to pay off. Like you, I'm doing my shoppig online this year and avoid the ubiquitous crowds who stampede to the stores in order to participate in the great shopping quest of the season. Well done!

Without You There's No Me (Poetry) - 11/20/2006 7:51:00 AM
May I stash this in my vault, please? Amazing write and so perfect for Thanksgiving. Funny, because I desired to write a poem such as yours because I've been quite in a fuddy-duddy lately, but now that I've read this there is no reason to write one because I cannot out-do this!
Perfect pen, Wendi.
Without You There's No Me (Poetry) - 11/20/2006 2:54:05 AM
A beautiful poem, Wendi -- this could so easily be a song. Again, beautiful!

Metamorph (Poetry) - 11/19/2006 6:56:31 PM
I remember that episode, Wendi and it always bugged me that this gorgeous "metamorph" was required to marry that ugly old alien instead of someone more suitable. I like the feel of this poem and it well expresses the tugging at the heart over a love that would never be. I really enjoyed reading this!
Metamorph (Poetry) - 11/19/2006 10:26:05 AM
Fantastic poem. Enjoyed very much
Metamorph (Poetry) - 11/18/2006 7:25:55 PM
Oh...how sad this can feel,"Metamorph", even if it were only a thought, effects no differently...
I missed this one episode...Smiles!
Interesting is write!(right)
Love and Peace~
Metamorph (Poetry) - 11/18/2006 1:37:48 PM
Ah isn't this like a case of art imitating life or vice versa, we often end up at the alter with the one we are really attracrted to but who is untouchable for one reason or another sitting in the wings watching. We may pick the closest clone we can find and just go with the flow but usually it never works. INteresting write here Wendi.
Metamorph (Poetry) - 11/18/2006 9:47:58 AM
Very interesting poem and perspective, Wendi. Well done. Too bad men don't morph to us ...

Can't You See? (An Acrostic) (Poetry) - 11/17/2006 4:30:46 PM
Exceptional poem, Wendi -- you did a wonderful job with this acrostic! It's so sad, the homeless. "...but for the grace of God, go I"
Can't You See? (An Acrostic) (Poetry) - 11/17/2006 2:38:24 PM
This is a write that I am very passionate about, our nation has too many homeless people...it is a sad situation, but people such as the lady that you wrote about as Victor put it...is a disgrace to society. People are so wrapped up in themselves and material things that they have forgotten about human beings, there brothers and sisters who are in need, after all in the eyes of God we are all his children and charity is a great thing to have, as a pure heart. The bible says that only the pure at heart will see God! Great write. I recently wrote a poem and posted it..about homeless, entertaining angels unaware...you've got a good heart!
Can't You See? (An Acrostic) (Poetry) - 11/17/2006 2:17:22 PM
The woman is a disgrace to society. To see a man reduced to sleep in his car and not ask someone to help him, once she could not do that herself, is pure egoism. Victor
Can't You See? (An Acrostic) (Poetry) - 11/17/2006 1:24:21 PM
Oh Wendi! This is a fabulous expose of how many "Christians" actually turn the other way! I've witnessed it.. [I think you might enjoy one of my postings called "Bringin' It Home']
Your friend is blessed to have you...and your Acrostic is outstanding!
I trust he is back on his feet again...and housed properly? My daughter and grandsons had a Homeless Ministry when they were still in PA., called "Steps of Faith" They go out under the leadership of Pastor Parsley now, in Columbus OHIO, and help to deliver thousands of pounds of food and clothing, while taking the message that Only Jesus Saves! They put action to their words...
God bless, Rhonda
Can't You See? (An Acrostic) (Poetry) - 11/17/2006 9:42:51 AM
This is an excellant write and an even better message...what would we do if it was one of our own kids?
Can't You See? (An Acrostic) (Poetry) - 11/17/2006 9:07:35 AM
When a social problem is paired with art and the result is a wonderfully written and clever poem we all benefit.
Can't You See? (An Acrostic) (Poetry) - 11/17/2006 8:27:22 AM
A fine write Wendi with a great spiritual and moral message.
Yes too many in this world measure their life and worth by what they own. It is a sad state of affairs. Wisdom must be exercised with many of these homeless people though. Some are demon possessed and quite violent.
Light and Wisdom ...

Can't You See? (An Acrostic) (Poetry) - 11/17/2006 8:15:08 AM
This is very fine work Wendi. Read well even though it had the restriction of the acrostic form. You are to be congratulated for your poetry and heart.

Here We Go Again... (Poetry) - 11/16/2006 8:19:11 PM
Really fine write about a down to earth person to person issue. I like to help those I can, put out the fires. But when fires are fueled by a crazy heart or mind I run! There are many others that need a hand and will use it for their betterment.
Very lean and to the point. I would love to learn more about communicating so directly.

The Nosy Neighbor (Poetry) - 11/14/2006 8:54:02 AM
This reminds me of the sitcom 227 when the nosy old lady was always out her window looking to see whose coming in and out. She had no man or sex and that is probably why. Laugh!

Here We Go Again... (Poetry) - 11/14/2006 2:05:14 AM
So true and this hurts a bit, because a person I know left my best friend and is spreading lies about him. Such people must be pitied but I doubt if we can save them from themselves. They will eventually suffer and who know blame God for it. Victor
The Nosy Neighbor (Poetry) - 11/13/2006 4:55:37 PM
Reminded me of someone I once knew...he was my younger neighbor who loved to look in the window of his neighbors, including mine. Great write....

What a great piece! I smiled throughout because I knew someone just like this.
The Nosy Neighbor (Poetry) - 11/13/2006 11:16:10 AM
Interesting slant on those all too nosy gossips that almost every neighborhood seems to have.
The Nosy Neighbor (Poetry) - 11/13/2006 11:07:32 AM
A good poem about one of life's sad figures ... don't give her another thought, Wendi, people like that are not worth it -- besides, you're way out of her league and too classy! Big hug!
Lovely Little One (Poetry) - 11/12/2006 2:55:05 PM

Here We Go Again... (Poetry) - 11/12/2006 1:12:15 PM
Your last three lines say it all, Wendi -- too sad there are people like this. You said it well -- they are their own worst enemies!
Lovely Little One (Poetry) - 11/12/2006 12:45:58 PM
Wendi, this is adorable -- one wouldn't even know you didn't have a little girl! I raised three daughters and you've described them so perfectly. Adorable poem.

Oh my gosh!...I loved this! I owed a debt once that had interest and late fee's added to my mere debt of thirty five dollars, I too had not been billed correctly, when I asked for an amount owed it was quite a bit higher than the original debt, but it wasn't quite this amount! Great write, told with perfection. Loved the humor in this!
The Bill Collector (Poetry) - 11/11/2006 9:51:55 AM

First Sean and Steve...Then R.A.Y. (Poetry) - 11/10/2006 11:25:53 AM
I can't imagine and don't want to try to imagine the agony those mothers are living with. I do admire them for their effort and bravery to help others, this is very honorable and admirable. Our world needs more people to just care about the human race, after all we are in this world together. This is a caring and kind act and very selfless. Wonderful write and tribute for these mothers.
First Sean and Steve...Then R.A.Y. (Poetry) - 11/10/2006 8:11:10 AM
I applaud you, Wendi for making us aware of this organization and the brave and honorable mothers who are doing something to make the world better. Very nice job with this poem!

Gaining... (Poetry) - 11/9/2006 6:00:55 PM
I am also on the roller coaster of weight, it goes up and down five pounds frequently. I have tired to learn to eat healthy and manage my diet in an honest manner, and have done quite well during the past six years. I have found that journaling helps me manage my diet better than anything....loved your poem and the humor...that slim fast is some heavy duty stuff...as a teacher I have found I can't handle the stuff...not enough bathroom breaks! Again, this was a great write, great humor, afterall if we can't find humor in aging the aging process..we're in trouble.
Gaining... (Poetry) - 11/9/2006 10:38:18 AM
Excellent poem about the enemy, Wendi! I'm proud to say I've lost over 300 pounds ... but it's the same 5 pounds over and over and over! LOL
Excellent poem -- made me laugh!

I Need To Be Married (Poetry) - 11/8/2006 9:13:56 AM
A good poem -- all too true for some, though. I once overheard a woman in a doctor's office telling her friend she was marrying a man so she didn't have to be alone any more ... very stoooopid.

Wow, Wendi, it IS good you wrote it down instead of blasting her. Your anger shines through loud and clear. Very cleansing to do that on paper.

Very romantic, a lovely poem Wendi!
Who Would Be Jealous Of You? (Poetry) - 11/7/2006 12:54:17 PM
Wendi I have too experienced someone such as this, I worked with her many years ago. She too wanted to be my friend and when things did not go as she thought they should she spread vicious rumors about me. It took a while to overcome, for most of the doubt was in my own mind of what others would think. I'm not sure what her reasons were for, but she did others the same as me. I saw her not so long ago, I smiled and walked on...whew the things that I thought! I had to pray hard to hold my tongue. The sad thing about situations such as this, the person who is contributing all of the hurt, must really be hurting deep down inside...but we're only human and thank God we have a pen to express and release much of the hostility...Great write...I'm sure that we are not alone in this one.

Not all that funny, although I can see humor in it. This whole marriage thing needs to be revisited at some point in time. But, if a man marries for nefarious reasons, he should have to pay the piper, likewise the women who marry only for a handyman and a bank account. Good, reflective ooem is my take.

I too know a few women who have lived this very life. I work with one who has now divorced for her third time...and guess what she is on the prowl again...look out men everywhere, she not only shops in Kentucky but the net...A comical thought was for these women to ask some of the others that I know whom have been married for more years than thye remember...they might let them borrow there husband...great write...I loved the humor in this one.

My second pass
Was when the furnace broke
And the repairman had the pants
That showed the crack.
HO HO! Duct Tape Fixes Even That!

A well rounded personallity here..
Men of Good Character--Don't Pass Me By! (Poetry) - 11/4/2006 4:48:24 PM
I could see the last stanza on T-shirts Wendi.
This was a splendid avowal of where you stand, and how you want to be seen by others. The rhyming scene was delightful.
Light and Wisdom ...

Men of Good Character--Don't Pass Me By! (Poetry) - 11/4/2006 2:18:37 PM
Sounds like the comedian was doing a much needed balancing act. Men have been dumbed down by comedians and the media in general for the past few decades with barely an objection raised. Maybe it's a question of 'heh girls, join the club.'
Men of Good Character--Don't Pass Me By! (Poetry) - 11/4/2006 11:50:35 AM
This is right on and I'm glad you stipulated that it was a comedian that made such an outlandish statement for I would much rather have someone as you describe in this write than someone like the one he described.

Fee was right. This on its own stands as an outstanding poem, so romantic. Beautifl. Victor
No Bliss Without You (Poetry) - 11/2/2006 5:54:03 PM
No thank you. This poem as I stated earlier is a testament to your abilities to write what is in your heart and also shows how you can diversify and follow your own path of writing wherever you may chose. This is beautiful and to know someone loved me that much would be my reson to exist. Thank you again for sharing this with us.

Well written, the Lord is great!

Yup that is what our Lord does..Well said..
Wings (Poetry) - 11/2/2006 10:36:05 AM
Simple poem but with so much passion and thought into it, the wings theme and freedom play a large part in your life obviously and you captured the pain of non confirmity well.
A Deep Poem (Poetry) - 11/2/2006 10:31:41 AM
I think your foot soak poem was great and I agree that all writing and poetry should be serious. However that being said this poem within a poem that you have just offered up is definatley a stand alone of beautiful thoughts. Please do us the honour of removing it and adding it as a love ballad that is pure and sweet but if not I will also understand and respect your decision.

Employee Turnover... (Poetry) - 10/29/2006 1:33:32 PM
Been there and done that too, and the worst is when you cannot due to circumstance walk away and look for a new job. Hard to smile when dealing with power idiots who know nothing.
My New Foot Soak! (Poetry) - 10/29/2006 1:31:34 PM

STrong poem and written for a strong women indeed, I have been fortunate over the years to meet several of these women who stand tall knowing who and what they are and it is a blessing just to know them but to sample a taste of their love is heaven.
