AH...BUT UPON OUR DEATH WE SHALL BE REWARDED WITH SOMETHING THAT IS SO MUCH GREATER...THE MARVELOUS BEAUTY OF ETERNAL LIGHT! WHICH FAR EXCEEDS THE MARVELOUS VIRTUES OF AN EVENING SKY. THANKS FOR SHARING, MY FRIEND. LOVE, BLESSINGS AND FAITH...JOYCE * HIS INSPIRATIONS
EVENING SKY (Poetry) - 1/28/2014 8:12:00 PM
Great images and thought-provoking meanings are awakened through your verses, George. Thank you. Love and peace to you,
EVENING SKY (Poetry) - 1/25/2014 11:36:05 AM
A very striking poem. I often felt that you were writing about the continent rather than a person. And thoughts went back to Iman when she returned to Africa after 10 years in 1985, the pictorial repeated again in Playboy recently.
I FOUND A FRIEND (Poetry) - 3/24/2013 6:02:27 PM
WOW! So profound, George. Excellent indeed.
No word is wasted (Poetry) - 3/24/2013 6:00:03 PM
Love this, George.
Beware of menís praise (Poetry) - 3/24/2013 5:58:49 PM
George, this is such a well written piece. I'm glad God sent me to your page, my friend. I'll be reading all of your your writes, past and future. Stay well, take good care of our furry friends and God bless you and yours.
Pride (Poetry) - 2/7/2013 10:25:39 AM
Beautifully penned. I agree with Joyce Bell that "Pride goes before the fall." Amen.

No word is wasted (Poetry) - 6/12/2011 8:08:37 AM
Time takes us all. It's creeping is undiscerned until we reach a certain time in life when either illness or age tells us that our time is now near and the creeping begins.
Inherited Bane (Poetry) - 6/11/2011 7:53:34 AM
A monumental look at death unspoken. Great poetry.
Inherited Bane (Poetry) - 6/10/2011 1:36:45 AM
EXCELLENT!!!!!!!!!!! Liana Margiva
Inherited Bane (Poetry) - 6/9/2011 5:36:14 PM
Death is in the natural order of things,
George, and we must accept, but it isn't easy;
i've come to the best terms i can with it, it
will come and take me one day - until then...
Inherited Bane (Poetry) - 6/9/2011 9:19:42 AM
Death is something we cannot prevent. The irony is not dying as such but it is the lack of knowledge of when to die, how to die and where to die. But on the other hand if we knew all these things life would not have had any meaning for us as we would be in a state of panic always, so it is better not to get answers for the points I have raised here.
This is One of the most interesting poetry on death I have ever read! Thanks my friend for this beautiful work.
Inherited Bane (Poetry) - 6/9/2011 7:57:23 AM
Wonderful, introspective writing. Joy L. Hale
Inherited Bane (Poetry) - 6/9/2011 4:56:45 AM
Our Inherited Bane - quite a powerful bane, especially these very sad days.

I agrre except for the boring job - how many people today would LOVE any job? Be thankful in all things my friend.
AIDS in Africa (Poetry) - 6/6/2011 6:50:34 AM
Yes, something needs to be done my friend to reverse this trend.
Blessing to you for bringing this to light.
Write a book about it make the world WAKE UP!
Yours in Christ,
AIDS in Africa (Poetry) - 6/6/2011 12:06:18 AM
Excellent expression George. You have described this tragic agony with perfection.
AIDS in Africa (Poetry) - 6/5/2011 8:16:28 AM
A sad commentary on human existence. Many organizations with inexpensive medicines are trying to solve the problem. Unfortunately, until the population is educated enough, the problem will persist. Thank you for bringing it to our attention.
AIDS in Africa (Poetry) - 6/5/2011 2:00:41 AM
So powerfully sad and tragic.

Dawn (Poetry) - 6/3/2011 6:36:30 AM
A triumph of words expressing how the dawn overpowers the night and banishes the fears the night brings. Intoxicating.

OH GEORGE! YES, YES, YES! A WORK THAT HAS TOUCHED ME INSIDE AND OUT...WASHING ME ANEW IN THAT MARVELOUS BATH OF MERCY AND GRACE THAT ONCE RESCUED ME TOO! HALLELUJAH! NEEDLESS TO SAY, I WILL PRINT THIS OUT AND PUT IT ON THE WALL BEHIND MY COMPUTER WHERE ALL MY OTHER 'VALUABLES' THAT I NEVER WANT TO FORGET ARE HANGING. CERTAINLY, I HAVE BEEN FED ROYALLY AND I THANK GOD FOR THIS SHARING. GOD BLESS. LOVE & FAITH...JOYCE * HIS INSPIRATIONS
I FOUND A FRIEND (Poetry) - 6/1/2011 1:47:25 PM
George, I agree with it all & believe in Him and your belief in Him as well, but maybe I am just wrong in someway, as I still have to ask so many questions regards God & what happens after we die...ah well suffice to say, YOU feel strongly herein and have written about it quite well...Ed
I FOUND A FRIEND (Poetry) - 6/1/2011 1:14:56 PM
Oh, George! Such a poem as you have written... should be seen by millions... and I hope it is. A wonderful salvation poem if I ever read one. Keep your ink dry and keep writing these soulful, awe inspiring poems. Just beautiful!!!!!!!!!!! Joy L. Hale
Dawn (Poetry) - 5/31/2011 4:11:29 PM
NOW I UNDERSTAND EVEN BETTER THE SCRIPTURE WHICH SAYS, '...AND A LITTLE CHILD SHALL LEAD THEM...'. THANK GOD THAT THE HAPPY LOOK ON YOUR BABY SON'S FACE MADE YOU REALIZE HOW 'YOUR' FEARS ARE NOT HIS FEARS. THUS, YOU CHANGED YOUR MIND ABOUT THOSE 'MAYBES' AND BEGAN TO EMBRACE THE FACT THAT YOU WERE 'BLIND' TO THE ARRAY OF BEAUTIFUL NATURAL THINGS WHICH SURROUND YOU. AND, AS FOR AS FEAR AND DOUBT ARE CONCERNED...THEY LURK IN ALL OUR MINDS FROM TIME TO TIME... BUT...THE PRESENCE OF GOD WILL DISPEL THEM, IF WE ASK HIM TO. THANKS FOR SHARING. LOVE, BLESSINGS AND FAITH...

Angry earth (Poetry) - 5/31/2011 1:00:17 PM
Awesome thoughts so well out. I think time does sneak up on us stealing our youth, not much we can do about it, but make the best of it, only if we could turn back, we ask, what would we change? My oldest son will soon be 32, my youngest son, 22, I always joke, where did these years go, but sadly they are gone. Many trials, jouneys, people we meet and joys are what we have to rely on. Thank you for the share.
Dawn (Poetry) - 5/28/2011 5:14:00 AM
A well written and insightful poem on how life is viewed from two perspectives.
Angry earth (Poetry) - 5/27/2011 11:24:36 AM
I notice that few are commenting on this. Through repetition and insistence you are pounding on the many nails we have erected to seal our coffin. I am an optimist, but I believe every word you say, it is about time that we wake up and smell the roses.
Pride (Poetry) - 5/26/2011 6:43:19 AM
I feel sometimes, when we admit when we are wrong, it adds pride, we show we have the other person, we are the "big" person in saying we were wrong. THose who can't admit wrong, sometimes, hide what they think are pide and it will come back to bite you. Ashes will smolder, and eventally will be blown away when we admit, our pride got the best of us. Put together so beatuifully.
Angry earth (Poetry) - 5/25/2011 2:35:45 AM
So very sad; so very true; and so many are still so sadly blind, today.
Angry earth (Poetry) - 5/24/2011 6:24:59 PM
Bravo!! Encore!! What a powerful poem about an often neglected subject. You did a masterful job of expressing the very thing that all mankind need to hear. Yes, we will all appear before our Creator, on bended knee, to atone for our part in destoying mother earth. A well thought out and well penned poem!!! Joy L. Hale
Senescence (Poetry) - 5/23/2011 3:39:06 PM
Great, George. A poem that reads like a poem.
Love the title. Love the poem. -gebe,

Yes, the inexorable flow of age - I'm getting to know it well!

You are a proper poet. Profound and true, penned with economy of words and great rhythm. Terrific - thank you.
Senescence (Poetry) - 5/21/2011 4:42:34 PM
This is powerful, essential work, George.
Loneliness (Poetry) - 5/21/2011 3:22:07 PM
Beautiful George. A great writer can make something we can't hold or touch seem human. This is exactly what you have done. Like anyone who tried to be noticed, to be counted as there, will slowly escalate their actions until eventually they explode from sorrow and loneliness. I so loved this, you are very talented.
Senescence (Poetry) - 5/21/2011 2:52:59 PM
Like a flowing river that grows, and empties into
a vast ocean with waves of coral along the way to
color the aging process with wisdom...only to pray
that the youth of today will live long enough to know.
Senescence (Poetry) - 5/21/2011 8:34:06 AM
A powerful and meaningful read; poetry at it's finest. Joy L. Hale
Beware of menís praise (Poetry) - 5/21/2011 8:27:33 AM

A tempestuous metaphor,George,a superb poem,exciting to read!
Loneliness (Poetry) - 5/7/2011 1:51:43 AM
The wind can be quite powerful, as are your words.
Loneliness (Poetry) - 5/6/2011 7:27:43 PM
This poem appears to have been written from a deep place in the soul. Your expressions of lonliness made me weep. Very strong poem that will leave no one unaffected. Joy Hale
Loneliness (Poetry) - 5/6/2011 7:12:37 PM
You offer much to ponder upon with these expressive verses, George. I appreciate the personification as well. Thank you. Love and peace to you,

Manhood (Poetry) - 4/27/2011 7:14:55 AM
ONE IS A BOY, BEFORE HE IS A MAN...THANK GOD! HOWEVER, SINCE WE ARE ALL PRODUCTS OF OUR EXPERIENCES, THE 'CHISELING' WHICH ULTIMATELY CARVES A BOY INTO A MAN ALWAYS LEAVES A 'RESIDUE' THAT, HOPEFULLY, STRENGTHENS THE MAN. WELL DONE AND THANKS FOR SHARING. LOVE, BLESSINGS & FAITH...JOYCE * HIS INSPIRATIONS
Manhood (Poetry) - 4/23/2011 4:36:52 PM
Interesting question of how things are interconnected. Such questions are fascinating, although difficult to answer. I especially like the "chamber" imagery in this poem.
Manhood (Poetry) - 4/18/2011 11:00:42 PM
an excellent write George
thanks for sharing
Peace be with you
Manhood (Poetry) - 4/15/2011 2:25:23 AM
A very good question, indeed.
Manhood (Poetry) - 4/14/2011 4:30:39 PM
I like to think part of me will never "grow up." And yet I find myself being a "grown up" at times. Good write!
Manhood (Poetry) - 4/14/2011 3:50:56 PM
I like how this makes me think, George,
the idea of combination or what we evolve into
as we go on living and growing.
Manhood (Poetry) - 4/14/2011 8:22:26 AM
Such an interesting and unique way of presenting this thought-provoking concept, George. Thank you. Love and peace,
Manhood (Poetry) - 4/14/2011 5:57:58 AM
I'd imagine it is the combination of the two that makes the man. I liked this poem.
Pride (Poetry) - 4/10/2011 4:43:59 PM

Pride (Poetry) - 4/9/2011 6:12:55 PM
Pride has a history of going down in flames. You had me going and I held fast until I made it to the finish line and cheered. Good ending.

There is comfort in the fact and there is sadness..a powerful truth excellently offered, George.
Double dealer (Poetry) - 3/29/2011 12:11:32 PM
George, such a reminder of our frailties...we do totter along life's path. Your stark phrasing brings that to mind. Justice...it is meted out in the most surprising ways.

great write,,sharp pen. loved it.
Shadow (Poetry) - 3/19/2011 2:03:11 PM
A trusting person is so rare these days, exceptional poetry that points out the dangers of being taken in.
Shadow (Poetry) - 3/19/2011 1:20:42 PM
Darn, man, you knew my first wife also, eh?
Ah, this whole poem is a metaphor and a darn good one at that. When time are good friends flock around. Let problems arise and, for the most part, you stand alone and friendless.
There are some exceptions to this premis, but not all that many I've found. Good work.
Broken Vow (Poetry) - 3/15/2011 10:13:54 PM

This is good! Sharing it with a friend of mine who does an Atlanta internet radio program, "Men Let's Talk" every Monday evening (6:30 pm) at www.love860.com . It's a Christian network designed to help uplift spiritual leadership among men as the anchors of families and community leadership. This poem rings very true of what all of us should avoid, for we are nothing but servants of the Most High God and servants and encouragers of one another in need.
Take care, glad to get back to your site again,

I like this composition... "Beware of menís praise". The subject dealt strikes ontological thoughts, and awareness on human's relation. A very inspiring poem... A treasure to add value to Poetry.

Beware of menís praise (Poetry) - 1/16/2008 2:18:11 AM
So true. I liked the composition of this piece. You write in a very open narrative style easily accessible to the reader. The topic is an important one with which we can all relate. Good effort, George.
Beware of menís praise (Poetry) - 1/15/2008 6:44:24 PM
perhaps mankind still has to realize, he is a co-creator in god's image and will begin to respect his own origin ...
Beware of menís praise (Poetry) - 1/15/2008 11:35:38 AM
You hit the 'nail on the head.' Conformity is a word that I abhore, especially when the intent is to diminish my integrity. It always bugs me when others try to brow-beat and only then are they truly happy.

I love the easy flow of thought in this piece and the relentless press of imagery on the mind of the reader. Wonderful writing and an uplifting message that really touched my heart and spoke my life.
Nothing Lasts Forever (Poetry) - 1/21/2007 6:07:39 AM
Very inspirational write my dear friend, you are so right, nothing lasts forever, that is in this world anyway. So many today seek for pleasures and treasures in the wrong place, when if only they could see that Heaven and an eternal life is what we should search for. Great write!
Nothing Lasts Forever (Poetry) - 1/20/2007 11:41:54 PM
