last tee shirt (Poetry) - 11/16/2009 7:48:16 AM
There is a deeper story in your writing that leaves the reader wanting to know more. The sign of a story weaver. Cheers and peace, Dan

Lonesome Room (Poetry) - 11/16/2009 7:44:43 AM
Well done, I love the short but direct approach you have taken. Cheers, Dan

Lonesome Room (Poetry) - 11/16/2009 5:41:12 AM
A lonesome room?...the one with tears on its floor. Georg

last tee shirt (Poetry) - 11/16/2009 5:40:09 AM
What you had never will go away, not eve the memory of a T-shirt gone. Georg

Lonesome Room (Poetry) - 11/15/2009 11:27:19 PM
Seems I have seen a few rooms like this one, seems to be void of a personality and a soul, nice writing... Be always safe, Karen

I love the way you write, Kathryn. -gene.

Lonesome Room (Poetry) - 11/15/2009 4:47:55 PM
Powerful stuff in a few simple, well crafted words, Kathryn. And what's worse, a houseful of empty rooms. -gene.

last tee shirt (Poetry) - 11/15/2009 4:37:45 PM
Sadly poignant and when we lose someone the desire to hold onto something that was close to them is strong. Fee

Lonesome Room (Poetry) - 11/15/2009 4:35:36 PM
It is funny how a room can have such personality...when buying a house we may walk into a room and have a rush of hope and desire for what is to come and may take place in that room but on the same token when we are moving out...we can find such a sad feeling almost of desertion permeating the air. fee

Lonesome Room (Poetry) - 11/15/2009 12:51:36 PM
Succinctly powerful in emotive meaning implied and shared. Well done, Kathryn. Love and best wishes, Regis

To Be a Tree (Poetry) - 6/1/2009 6:59:39 AM
I like the tree metaphor, Kathryn: They are thick as trees, talking leaf talk. -gene.

To Be a Tree (Poetry) - 5/30/2009 9:09:54 PM
Most of those social gatherings aren't all that they're cracked up to be. Not beinging at the heart of so many of them isn't really such a bad thing.

To Be a Tree (Poetry) - 5/27/2009 3:46:33 PM
Sometimes we feel alienated in social situations and we become what they expect us to be... FEe

To Be a Tree (Poetry) - 5/27/2009 3:05:15 PM

To Be a Tree (Poetry) - 5/27/2009 7:24:18 AM

To Be a Tree (Poetry) - 5/27/2009 12:35:49 AM
Long ago, in eons of past lives I was a tree, a oak not less. Kind of big without brutality, very high but without arrogance, and of course with a head full of small chirping birds... See what you done? inspired me to remember! Great tree panegyric. Georg

To Be a Tree (Poetry) - 5/26/2009 6:38:41 PM

I have found many a time lying on my sofa things that I should had done yesterday because I was looking those things that I should do tomorrow, that is,, I got and slumbered that responsability on another couch. Georg

You Give Me Fever (Poetry) - 6/25/2008 6:57:49 AM
This is great, Kathryn. And true, wherever you live. But you just can't beat October at the shore. Although there's usually a breeze coming off the ocean all summer, as long as you can still see the ocean. -gene.

Kathryn, as I'm sure you know, understanding good poetry comes with exposure. We hope. - Gene.

Poetry is Odd (Poetry) - 6/1/2008 7:38:15 AM
Poetry is not here to be undesrtood, poetry is here to be feel... Georg

Crades of Sound (Poetry) - 6/1/2008 7:37:07 AM
Like rumaging in an old drawer and finding images of ourselves in generations past and thinking that, perhaps in the future, someone will open it again and wonder... Georg

Little Heart Lost (Poetry) - 5/30/2008 8:52:52 AM
Indeed the heart is very vulnerable but we need it to go on. Nicely expressed, Kathryn. Love and peace to you, Regis

very old shoes at the museum (Poetry) - 5/30/2008 8:51:17 AM

very old shoes at the museum (Poetry) - 5/22/2008 1:02:15 PM
Kathyrn, this is profound & a powerful write, it caused this reader to gasp in sorrow. Those old shoes held many happy, sad, tragic, heart rendering memories that if they could have spoken, we would have never believed their stories. This is an absolute outstanding writing & it touched me so much.

very old shoes at the museum (Poetry) - 5/22/2008 12:32:21 PM
*tears* This one is powerfully penned sadness - well done, Kathryn - (((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

very old shoes at the museum (Poetry) - 5/22/2008 10:20:41 AM
The sadness of loss is great in your poem. I recently saw a picture where soldiers stood over the empty boots with a flag in the background. I also saw a picture of Holocaust victims laid out in rows for as far as the eye could see. Your poem brought back those pictures.

In Lieu of Flowers - Send Ground Round (Poetry) - 5/22/2008 10:17:17 AM
another great one, killjoy.

very old shoes at the museum (Poetry) - 5/22/2008 10:14:13 AM

Little Heart Lost (Poetry) - 5/22/2008 7:39:12 AM
Sometimes we lost our heart, and no matter how or where we look for's gone. Georg

very old shoes at the museum (Poetry) - 5/22/2008 7:36:43 AM
In 1945 many GI where witnesses to a few pile of shoes in the concentration camps. Those in the museum aren't art, they are an insensitive way to "art" that offend a few and hurt too many. Georg

In Lieu of Flowers - Send Ground Round (Poetry) - 5/22/2008 7:32:24 AM
With my allergies to flower's pollen, that butcher shop seems more appropiate, maybe I can smell one of those humongous texas T-bone steaks and send that cholesterol level to shut up to Mars. Georg

Ancestor Energy (Poetry) - 5/22/2008 7:14:14 AM

War and Peace (Poetry) - 5/21/2008 8:15:17 AM

Strong image here Kathy but I am afraid letting go and going with the current isn't always the answer for when you hit the next bend and are flung against the rocks and left alive but battered and it worth it then? Fee

Elsive Gratitude Illusive (Poetry) - 4/3/2008 10:15:52 AM
Grief, loss, despondency all rob the spirit of the will to go on but as we write and as we rise again there is the hope in the morning sun that time though fleeting is still our friend. Lovely write Fee

Adeste Fidelis (Poetry) - 12/30/2007 2:59:10 PM
As an Agnostic I tend to believe in a higher power but not in any one organized religion. Born, Christened and raised as a Roman Catholic, when I became a man I decided that too much of the church and for that matter all churhes were based on hypocristy and so I broke free. This poem states your values and believes and I respect your right to say them. Fee

Even though I stopped smoking years ago, I still find the smell of cigarette smoke somewhat intoxicating. Dan

Little Tree Lost (Poetry) - 11/27/2007 12:51:47 PM
I love trees. I have planted a great many throughout my life so far. "Progress" has already killed many of them but many survive and thrive. I have written quite a lot of my poems on the theme of "trees." For example: "The Tree" and "Death of a Birch" which are posted here at AD. Thank you for sharing your gift, Kathryn. Love and peace, Regis

Little Tree Lost (Poetry) - 11/26/2007 7:25:24 AM
We could put our names on that old red-wood one, it will take a few hundred of years to get our names forgotten. Georg

Sculpture (Poetry) - 11/26/2007 7:23:34 AM
And Michelangelo said to David in marble "parla, cane!!!" so full of life was that sculpture. Georg PS "parla cane" in italian means "talk, dog"...go figure.

A stalker and a Tchaikovsky's swan, what a simple yet complicated image! The freedom, suddenly, jumped out like a frighten butterfly. Georg

Dreamland (Poetry) - 11/25/2007 3:30:37 AM
Then...the only thing left is to give a welcome kiss to tomorrow. Georg

Thought provoker, Kathryn: Don't worry about yesterday; it's gone; don't worry about tomorrow; today has enough trouble of its own, demanding all your attention. Excellent. (((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

Home (Poetry) - 10/24/2007 6:14:04 PM
To me, that is a sad way to exit. Your words hit home, Kathryn. Love and peace, Regis

I'd Glady Have Gone (Poetry) - 10/24/2007 2:42:02 PM
My deeppest words of consolation, Dear Kathryn. As when my wife died over two years ago, all the suffering and agony for each ended. Blessing to you, and please know that it does get easier, and at a pace you can tolerate. Know, too, that your friends on AD are here, and you will find that they are a strong link in life's chain. With love, - Bill

Don't Look Away (Poetry) - 10/24/2007 1:52:22 PM
Kathryn - Your words remind of years gone by before losing my father in a home BEFORE they were "nursing" homes. That is all now, a hole in the the hell of memory for me. Thank you for vivied reminders. This is an exceptional way that you've said it, "Soft brown eyes cannot die as long as they are looking at me." With understanding and sympathy, - Bill

Home (Poetry) - 10/24/2007 1:42:45 AM
Skeletons, like a bony rack where we hang our flesh. Image of an old person? Georg

Don't Look Away (Poetry) - 10/24/2007 1:40:08 AM
Sitting there, knowing, expecting without expectancy, dreading, the arrival of solitude with the life going out of those eyes, like falling into the abyss after the straw we grabbed got broken. A few words describing an universe of feelings. Good, well done. Georg

I'd Glady Have Gone (Poetry) - 10/24/2007 1:14:42 AM
Yes, when in love, the consolation is that of not have left the other behind with the hands full of emptiness if gone first. Then again, if life was one filled with happiness one can't feel too sad among those legions of good and tender memories. Georg

Home (Poetry) - 10/23/2007 8:07:11 PM
What we call nursing homes, very painfully descriptive.... Be safe, Karen

Home (Poetry) - 10/23/2007 11:55:55 AM

Don't Look Away (Poetry) - 10/23/2007 10:45:55 AM
Heartwarming feelings of love and compassion that more of us should feel in this world of computer feelings. Fee

Home (Poetry) - 10/23/2007 10:44:32 AM
So very well expressed and sadly all too real as children and grand children forget the sacrifices the elderly made for them in life. Fee

I'd Glady Have Gone (Poetry) - 10/23/2007 9:12:51 AM
What else can one say, other than this is one emotionally charged write, penned so well. Peace, Dan

Having my mom in a nursing home just like your description hits the nail on the head. Dan

Home (Poetry) - 10/23/2007 7:46:59 AM
Captured in painful detail, spot on! Used to work in a military hospital, we'd get some patients that were literally frozen in place...they hadn't been turned so their muscles atrophied from disuse. Bedsores all the way to the bone. Covered in urine and feces....I thought things were supposed to be getting better. Apparently not...well done, Kathryn. (((HUGS))) and love, Karla. *tears*

Seasonal Exit (Poetry) - 10/9/2007 1:36:46 PM
