A poem filled with life and sentiments. To some, life itself is poetry. Cooking with love is beautifully-delicious!!!

Poetry Month 2005 (Poetry) - 1/28/2006 11:01:37 PM
We must respect the voices of poetry for all Americans and the world, we need to have independent voices for America to shout liberally and conservatively upon the fresh air of Democracy and Freedom, using the free speech of a divine dictionary uncensored from bigotry and conformity. The beauty of diversity is that it sings in learning from others words, while teaching other to breath inside their hearts.
I pray you and all your poetic friends will recite your words upon a White House that the artmosphere would fill the air full of our culture, singing in our great diversity of poetic voices reciting upon the art of communication without labels. Yes, I shall pray my words may one day reach that White House probably from my grave turning in my pride for a country that I love and that I must use the words that lie within the miracle given me from a divine gift of verse. The path is full of thorns of poverty, but the wealth must be in the heart of every syllable coming to rest on another mind to treasure.
What is left, when the right is always right but lies in the oblivion of truth, for moderation is the pendulum of American Democracy and Freedom. A Constitution devoid of its citizens right to be wrong, balanced with their need to be left guaranteed to be heard in the tears of our founding fathers. Why must America fight for its independent voice? Being labeled into conformed silence, when the diversity is about the art of blood flowing throughout humanity in the respect of human and civil right of equality. To swing upon fresh air of thoughts, feeling yourself explode in those words that bleed red not green, in compassion that America is not about politicians, but about a people. People who respect of truth will always seek out lies and expose them to damnation, for they need no lobbying funds to be Americans of honor, not deceit. (If there are mistakes in this, so be it, for America is not about being perfect, but growing from your imperfection to teach others the beauty of the mind swinging left and right on their own quest for answers in concrete accountability.)
Please fight for our Constitution of left and right moderating into a United States of truth, respect, and honor.

"Having a dead American poet words read,
Why not not let a live American Conservative Poet like me or Dr. Elliot Mcgucken read at the White House?
THE CIA PREDATOR DRONE
Whether we bring our enemies to justice or bring justice to our enemies, justice will be done. --President George W. Bush, Address to the joint session of Congress on September 20, 2001
You can no longer kill Americans
Around the whole world with impunity.
When you began your heinous murder runs
On New York you lost your immunity.
There is no place you can run to and no
Place you can hide. The drone is flying just
Above. The target designator glow
Is following you, who rate our disgust.
The eyes of all America are watching
You day and night, in rain or shine or snow.
Our spies are gathering vast data, matching
The faces, names and financing. We know.
The laser designator is on you.
The Hellfire missile drops out of the blue!

Republican Democracy (Poetry) - 4/6/2005 12:25:49 PM
David, I'm happy to see this subject in print. I believe that today is an exciting time to be a poet. To my mind, both sides of the issues need poets because each side will want to show they support artists, it helps their sense of humanity. Each side will seek poetic voices for poems, and poems set to music-songwriters are poets also. Guess what, the pay, for poets, which now approaches zero, might work it way up to the exhalted levels of the minimum wage. I'd like to see a whole slew of political poems. Henry
Republican Democracy (Poetry) - 4/6/2005 11:26:08 AM
I weep for our future. We are in some perilous times. Your poetry is something almost Orwellian, but savagely and miraculously true. I can even feel it in the arts.

politically astute poetry ..
Presidential Town Hall Meetings (Poetry) - 3/30/2005 6:28:17 PM
Yes he makes good points and well when political correctness came into being everything else went out the window.
Presidential Town Hall Meetings (Poetry) - 3/30/2005 5:38:14 PM
Ah yeah.. the "town hall meeting" that only plants can attend. Getting to be quite the trend, huh? Bush was in my town recently for one such farce. The audience was planned, the questions were written ahead of time (how else could he know the answers), and our mayor wasn't invited because he's a Democrat.

The Loud Poet (Poetry) - 3/29/2005 11:44:01 AM
Thank you for this exemplary commentary on the relationship between poets, their craft, and readers. It often helps to be reminded that poetry is something larger than individuals, yet all who respect it are made that much bigger and more beautiful for doing so.

To express a thought such as this shows me why you might of been terminated and why it is your writing that I will read. Never did have a connection with the "popular" thought :-) A co-worker recently said to me, "You could be a rebeller,'" I smiled, and she knew the real truth and laughed with me.

Some would have all of us cloned,
In one image to follow others at will.
Very sadly true, in today's plastic, corporately run, homogenous, junky fast food world - and to me, such a terrible shame. Diversity is truly a marvelous thing - if we only let it be.
Impossible (Poetry) - 3/22/2005 9:27:59 PM

You know, I wonder if he believes it or if he just knows his constituents will hand him votes because he's pushing their buttons. Some folks believe America replaced Israel and this should be a theocracy. Just gotta pray for them too. A strong write. ~~Nordette
Ghost Writing Alabama (Poetry) - 3/22/2005 2:36:37 PM
I can see you will be a very interesting poet to read :-) Even if you were gay what would it matter? Words are the beauty that they are, does it matter what the person is like sexually? Apparently they did not notice you were looking for your soulmate when they made their assumption. Keep writing :-) Freedom can not be take from the soul :-)

true democracy lies in the power to transcend the poverty of thought ...
politically and socially this poem has a lot to offer ...
Homeless (Poetry) - 3/17/2005 8:51:29 PM
Thanks for giving such a true picture and loud voice to a growing, very real problem. Wonderful job. Regarding your note above - I'm wondering when and how the words 'we the people' were forgotten. We The People ARE the government, so this talk about we have to do for ourselves and not expect "handouts" is purely self-serving rhetoric for those who think in terms of we and they instead of WE. Nothing patriotic about that.
Homeless (Poetry) - 3/17/2005 8:42:24 PM
Yes, physical poverty is a crisis here. It's a dis-ease that affects all areas of the quality of life.
HOMELESS forces the reader to look poverty right in the eyes.

<i>" Verse of free spirited enlightened introspection,
Capturing harmony in the melody of nature" </i>
Yes, too many times we are caught up in the tools we use to pen, and not in the true exhillaration of feeling those words, alive, all around us. Away from civilizations choas, Alone in the wilderness...nicely put.

Again Mari has snuck in and beat me to the punch so I just ditto what she wrote.
The Bare Truth (Poetry) - 3/17/2005 1:40:56 PM
Truth. One of the most subjective topics to write about. Every one's truth is relative. But then there are those truths which are universal: Love is one, for example. Justice another.
Truth stands near trust and poor trust is so abused it turns truth into cynicism. But tell me an ugly truth anyday over a pretty lie.
Another terrific read, Dave.
Two Sides Of A Coin (Poetry) - 3/17/2005 1:37:02 PM
This was brilliant thought, Dave, posing very insightful questions. I like the topics you choose to write about. I look forward to reading more of your work!
Fresh Air (Poetry) - 3/17/2005 1:34:33 PM
Ohhhh... I adore that last line:
The fresh air hugging, who you really are
FRESH AIR is terrific! Fantastic cadence and flow. Beautiful work!

Well you do make one think and now the bankruptcy laws due to be changed because they do not want the rich to get away with keeping their assets. The lobbists for this was the banking industry and the credit card companies. The poor and the people that had to file because of illness will suffer before the rich do.

Had to read this twice. Truly an exceptional narrative of mythological imagery illustrating cycles of eternal life and rebirth. Starts out powerful and ends the same.
Pyre (Poetry) - 3/10/2005 8:50:51 PM
I tell you that you really write well and do these like a master.
Two Sides Of A Coin (Poetry) - 3/10/2005 2:55:27 PM
I hope not, communication
the start, continuation of dialog,
a path to understanding and change
like JudeAce said we really should and need give the benefit of doubt
listen, read with an open mind and heart
Excellent points here!!!!
Two Sides Of A Coin (Poetry) - 3/9/2005 9:25:33 PM

I agree with Sandie, we all have blue days....this too shall pass. Love to read your work, just keep writing, it helps.
Headstone (Poetry) - 3/7/2005 4:35:41 AM
From time to time we always have this feelings of being a failure, or that we have let ourselves down; but these feelings won't last for as long as we live there's always hope that we can do better.
Hope all is well with you. Take care.

Waterfall Tears (Poetry) - 3/6/2005 7:06:55 PM
I somehow picture all kids that have killed their mothers and/or fathers or family members, the world calling them crazy, or murderers, but maybe they are just protecting themselves in the only way they have learned from life...An excellent portrayal, David, of a subject few have the courage to tackle...Find Peace in your Journey, Ed & Rufuz
Waterfall Tears (Poetry) - 3/6/2005 4:43:06 PM
And some just think that praying is all they should do while turning a blind eye to the violence. They speak the words but do not walk the walk.

Very inspirational, methodical, very touching into the emotions and stuggles of life. I especially liked the line.. Yet one lie can wilt a flower, staining others in the blight of shame creating dark lesions, ..
I really loved this poem of truth.
Thank You much.
