Shine On (Poetry) - 11/12/2014 10:14:45 AM|
I have been kind of exalted with these words, They ring true in my case - very much so. I'm going to shine on, that's for sure, Stan.
Shine On (Poetry) - 11/12/2014 8:18:25 AM
Stan, what a wonderful write ... I love this.
Shine On (Poetry) - 11/11/2014 4:02:54 PM
...powerful poem...achingly wonderful reflection on human life...a cycle
echoing the rhythm of the nature's four seasons...poem of discovery
...an opportunity to know little more about the life's metaphor of Autumn.
Autumn....season of harvest...time when green coloured leaves flame
to the golden hues of creation...expressing different moods...thoughts
and the meaning of the process...so evident in your poem Stan.
The arrival of Autumn announced by a sudden experience of falling
life energy...due to accumulated stress...the ache...loneliness...health
Problems barely noticeable...short time ago...becoming profound now
...thoughts wandering from the past to the next stage...emotions of past
sadness raising to the top of mind....flashing red...yelling "there is more
grieving to be done...But how?...when the courage is gone!
How to have what it takes...not only to survive in the new reality but
to thrive...in a new season of life...If you listen carefully...there is an
answer...clear....loud...saying " it is the ability to let go of the past
...embrace the present...use imagination to paint the future...using
own soul palette of creative juices...that are still flowing...like fountain
of youth...let the age-ego-tendency to die...use the process to liberate
the richness of the "new" awaiting to come into "being"...engage
in life...cherish new attitudes...Shine on!
Thank you for sharing your thoughts provoking poem.

Stan I can feel the loneliness, the sadness and yet the hope of a day at a time. Beautiful and deep work, My Friend.
Shine On (Poetry) - 11/11/2014 10:21:31 AM
This poem deserves "tragic" status. Its loneliness is only superseded by its penchant for timeliness--dawn till dusk.

I heard it.....nice timing, huh? Beautiful sentiments. Happy Easter. A

A warrior out planting trees. I like that.

Stan, what an excellent poem...just great.
Morning Death of Another Young Tree (Poetry) - 4/6/2014 7:05:56 AM
Very sad to witness such indifference to living things...
You say it so well....
Morning Death of Another Young Tree (Poetry) - 3/29/2014 10:05:32 AM
I chose the cells when it was new because there was 100 foot right-of-way for power lines behind it, and nothing else. Shortly after, an apartment house went up on the other side, driving all the critters from that area into our neighborhood. In the time since, the owners let the right-of-way grow up with all kinds of undergrowth making for excellent wildlife habitat. Unfortunately, a couple of years ago, they began cycles of cutting down the whole thing every year or two. Last year, they use defoliants. I've noticed a marked decrease in wildlife, particularly birds and insects. I used to let my lawn go in the spring so that wildflowers could bloom until the homeowner's association got after me for not having an Astroturf on like everybody else. Now the guy we hired to cut our lawn, needs the money so we let him cut it.
I mourn that walnut tree, too. You should post the poem on his door if you know where he lives, or at least at some neighborhood location where he might read it.
Morning Death of Another Young Tree (Poetry) - 3/28/2014 11:11:14 AM
...and you have every right to mourn the death of the young walnut tree. Captivating poem!!
Recovery Song (Poetry) - 3/28/2014 9:07:58 AM
Wow, this is perfectly written regarding pain/recovery. Hit home with me.
Morning Death of Another Young Tree (Poetry) - 3/28/2014 7:54:26 AM
Stan, what a great write...strong, visual story line.
February the Longest Month (Poetry) - 2/25/2014 6:42:33 PM
I have to agree with Dan totally. I do have to add though that I know we do not have the same kind of winter as most of the country I had to wonder if somehow Louisiana had been moved. Lol never have we had a February like this one! I thoroughly enjoyed this piece, Stan!
February the Longest Month (Poetry) - 2/19/2014 10:57:35 AM
Yes, in spite of the typos and other little inconsistencies, you have described the wrath of winter beyond even my remembrance of its prolonged torture waiting for the sun to come out and stay. That's why I'm here in Houston, avoiding most of it.
February the Longest Month (Poetry) - 2/19/2014 9:51:28 AM
I could just see you standing up during a poetry slam and taunting us with your poetry. I've always regarded you as a good poet, but this offering has raised you to another level...well done.
Just a Tree (Poetry) - 2/14/2014 2:52:37 PM
Stan, this is an awesome piece of writing...simply wonderful.
Just a Tree (Poetry) - 2/14/2014 7:59:46 AM
Very spiritually connected to the earth we live on. Uplifting.
Just a Tree (Poetry) - 2/12/2014 10:21:44 AM
What an analogy! What a poem! You never dissapoint with your writing.. but this one touched me in many ways. Stellar writing, my friend... simply stellar! Myrna

No You-Go (Poetry) - 12/27/2013 8:04:23 AM
I'm with Dan here.. conjured a few for me as well.. always a pleasure to read you..)
No You-Go (Poetry) - 12/25/2013 8:19:48 AM
great write Stan...conjured up a few memories of my own...
No You-Go (Poetry) - 12/24/2013 1:23:39 PM
Quite a memory. Mine was a fenced in yard across the street that was all overgrown like a jungle where an old man we never saw lived with ramps leading to the front and the back barely seen through the undergrowth. All I remember was that we could see an old car through the murky window of the shed in the back of the house. When he died, they cleaned out the place and brought the old car out for us to see. The car was very old with side curtains and gas lanterns for lights. Someone bought it for their collection. We never found any of the balls that we lost in that yard.
Homeless People (Poetry) - 12/1/2013 11:29:56 AM
You are quite a good story teller. Lots of mystery, intrigue. I would only suggest that you think about the ending. It calls for something dramatic, something that leaves your readers gasping for more.
Homeless People (Poetry) - 11/24/2013 4:01:27 PM
UNTIL You ARE Become VICTIM One Of
80 Millions + USA Homeless Live Sleep

All you Can Do Is To Write
Is There To Analyze!?
Homeless People (Poetry) - 11/24/2013 9:32:13 AM
A travelogue from our old Kentucky home. It was hard for me to tell whether you were just a voyeur or one of the homeless people yourself. The imagery is quite vivid. And I'm not sure why the woman in the boat was so eager to wave at you, given the status she represented.
In any event, thoroughly enjoyed. Makes me want to read more.
Homeless People (Poetry) - 11/24/2013 8:07:28 AM
You've done justice to this one, Stan...it seems we live in a world of contrasts... This is not a problem that will go away, or behind a concrete wall...nice work!
Homeless People (Poetry) - 11/24/2013 7:17:56 AM
So well expressed Stan.. as only you can. Emotionally charged from beginning to end.. Myrna
Homeless People (Poetry) - 11/23/2013 10:21:06 PM
Wow! This poetic journey took me from homeless to hopeful and back to homeless. Truth be known we are all a few paychecks away from being in the shoes of the homeless. Amen
Christmas Word Weaver (Poetry) - 8/19/2013 8:41:44 PM
The pallette becomes a diamond jewel of coldness sometimes, there is always light to be found, it glows within you awaiting the sounding of the bell to release and blossom. It is there Stan, in sharing your words it eases the coldness in me, it is there in you, look and you will see.
Recovery Song (Poetry) - 8/19/2013 8:37:58 PM
Recovery Song (Poetry) - 8/6/2013 11:19:03 AM
Moving poignant message that is told with clear,imaginative language.
Thank you for sharing this beautiful work with us here in The Den.
A Sunny day,in October (Poetry) - 7/6/2013 12:05:04 PM
Great poem Stan-you have described a typical day in October in a very beautiful,creative way.
I especially like these lines: A car alarm is sounding
all, the trees shudder
All life has a bounce today.

Recovery Song (Poetry) - 4/21/2013 4:47:11 PM
I'm sure this is a solace and comfort to others in pain. There's so much pain in the world, Stan. I enjoy reading your poetry and your compassion shows.
Bible Study (Poetry) - 4/21/2013 4:43:32 PM
Good for you, Stan. I wish I had helped more in my life. Enjoyed your verses!
Life (Poetry) - 4/21/2013 4:41:02 PM
The flow of life...always moving...24 hrs. in a day...its up to us how we fill it.
Recovery Song (Poetry) - 3/30/2013 3:43:29 AM
The life, stresses,......affect us badly, making
every day a struggle, and then we try to maintain
our public persona hiding private pain from
public view, from....ourselves,
And there are scars and wounds deeper than the bleeding
ones ..and nothing to show....
Experience of pain suppose to make us stronger!?!
Hard to forget pain,....but you turn wounds into wisdom.
Thank you for sharing your pain with us, so we too, can
stand up and say....it's OK to feel our pain,.... and start
the process of healing.
Warm regards. Isabella.
Life (Poetry) - 3/30/2013 2:20:20 AM
Complex philosophy on life packed into
contemplative poem of simple truth; live
meaningful life with positive attitude,
participate in...and cherish every day, good
and not so......
Have a wonderful day, Stan.
Life (Poetry) - 3/20/2013 6:13:57 AM
Thoughtful verses so well penned Stan.
Life (Poetry) - 3/19/2013 5:37:52 AM
This so reminds me of a very short poem I just wrote... loved it!
It's always a joy reading you... hugs, Myrna
Life (Poetry) - 3/18/2013 9:06:21 AM
Like a plant that feels no wind, without the continual changing of the environment, life would not be near as robust as it is.
Life (Poetry) - 3/18/2013 5:52:35 AM
There is a quick pulse in your words that adds the vitality you speak of; in all of life. Well done my friend.
March: Along the Licking River (Poetry) - 3/13/2013 5:38:44 AM
Ron, i fully realize how blessed I truly am,and your comment gave me pause to see the world for a moment from a different point of view,than you
March: Along the Licking River (Poetry) - 3/11/2013 8:36:00 AM
I can understand the cabin fever of a long winter and the fickle weather of March that brings one to wonder if winter will ever stop. But to have all that wild imagery before you is a blessing that I did not have here where there is no winter to be revived by spring.
March: Along the Licking River (Poetry) - 3/11/2013 4:21:10 AM
Stan, this is what I've missed from you.. the ability to paint for me a picture... vision is not needed.. only your words..)
March: Along the Licking River (Poetry) - 3/10/2013 6:38:37 AM
Stan, thanks for taking us on this journey...so visual, images deep and real...right along with you I could breathe in the campfire smoke.
Recovery Song (Poetry) - 3/10/2013 6:10:22 AM
With all that has happened to you, it's good to see you not a bitter and cranky old man like me:-]
March: Along the Licking River (Poetry) - 3/10/2013 6:07:08 AM
Winter is finally loosening it's grip on the Ga. mountains as well..
About time, however it also hails the almost unbearable steaming heat and humidity of summer here.
March: Along the Licking River (Poetry) - 3/10/2013 4:01:49 AM
A day truly worth remembering - Hail Spring!
March: Along the Licking River (Poetry) - 3/10/2013 2:28:23 AM
Good one, stan. There's something really special about spring.
March: Along the Licking River (Poetry) - 3/9/2013 10:31:06 PM
memories as these keep us in peace
Recovery Song (Poetry) - 3/7/2013 6:41:28 PM
This is a sacred, almost mystical writing, that sounds like a prayer. I wish more people would pay attention to what goes on inside, to all the hidden pain that we seem to find unbearable and choose to ignore. One cannot love without accepting the scars. Our own as well as those of the ones we love. Thank you Stan, this is beautiful!
Recovery Song (Poetry) - 3/5/2013 11:34:09 AM
Beautifully written and expressed. I really like this one.

Thank you for sharing this uplifting offering, Stan. Love and peace to you,
Damn You ,Allan Jackson (Poetry) - 6/1/2011 4:25:49 AM
I don't know who Alan Jackson is but if he inspired this you need to listen to him some more - put the remembrance of pain aside and write with the music. Another stunning write!
On That Day [Woman Speaks] (Poetry) - 6/1/2011 4:22:04 AM
wow - short and powerful yet again. Amazing is always a good thing right? loved this also!
Again (Poetry) - 6/1/2011 4:21:01 AM
Stan - you have really turned a corner since the last time I was here. Your writing has jumped 10 levels and are so heart wrenching yet always finish in a positive. What a great guy you must be to have a heart like that. I loved this, such warmth in the end and a renewed belief. Great work!
Climbing the Stairs (Poetry) - 5/25/2011 10:37:31 AM
This hits hard Stan. Keep writing these because we can never forget and unfortunately people do. I don't think any of us will ever forget where we were when it happened and thinking about what went through the minds of all that died that day and all who tried to find someone left alive can never be fully understood. Thank you for this tribute and for all the times you did the same. Wonderful write.
A Fool Still and Always (Poetry) - 5/21/2011 3:07:18 PM
Stan - you have a real talent for saying what you feel as if in a conversation with a best friend. You make me feel you are talking to me not at me. Great writers have that ability. Another heart retching piece but oh so sadly beautiful.
Today I Stand (Poetry) - 5/21/2011 3:03:42 PM
BRAVO!!! How ya been Stan? I have missed you. I see you have absolutely blossomed in your writing my friend. I almost started to cry. I hope you are well and if you are helping those that now start the same road trip you survived you are a truly doing what God put you here for. I loved this, it touched my heart and eyes. Keep them coming my friend, keep them coming!
Christmas Word Weaver (Poetry) - 2/4/2011 8:09:34 PM
It seems to me that you have woven some wonderful verses here, Stan. Thank you for sharing them. Love, peace, and best wishes to you,
Morning Sounds of a Misty Morning (Poetry) - 1/19/2011 6:39:25 PM
This is so heart touching. That last verse! Really sweet.

Gift of Sharing (Poetry) - 1/16/2011 9:14:06 AM
I love this poem of daring to open up and share. . .and the Love that can be found in those depths of heart. Actually, this is beautiful!
Fire (Poetry) - 1/10/2011 7:03:11 AM
A good poem about the need for passion in life -
In everything we do and everything we write.

Christmas Word Weaver (Poetry) - 12/28/2010 11:40:55 AM
A truly stunning and emotive poem Stan. Happy new year.
Christmas Word Weaver (Poetry) - 12/25/2010 7:34:13 AM
Something lost, something found. Dreaming of a lost connection to oneself and to the rest of humanity. This is what I feel when I read this piece, Stan. "Weaving" seams to be the right verb for this.
Again (Poetry) - 12/24/2010 7:44:06 PM
A Nice healing
Deep Into Winter (Poetry) - 12/24/2010 7:42:52 PM
A sad march.
Bible Study (Poetry) - 12/24/2010 7:40:20 PM
I love the irony of being too busy studying the bible - studying how to Love, to show love to you. Ouch! I hope someone else was there for you in your moments of need. And I can't help but wonder what the court case was about. . .
A Fool Still and Always (Poetry) - 12/24/2010 4:00:08 PM
I love how real and straight from the heart your writing is.
Climbing the Stairs (Poetry) - 12/24/2010 3:56:51 PM
So wonderfully written and felt that it brought on a flash of goose bumps.
Christmas Word Weaver (Poetry) - 12/24/2010 10:53:34 AM
Weave on, Stan. You do it so well.
Christmas becomes you. Enjoy.
Christmas Word Weaver (Poetry) - 12/24/2010 7:59:11 AM
I like to think that the weaving begins with one word, one scribble, one fleeting thought that you capture...then the dance begins and you have done a wonderful job with this poem,
Christmas Word Weaver (Poetry) - 12/24/2010 5:34:58 AM
Stan, you have touched upon feelings that all word weavers go through. I myself, right at this very moment feel this same way. I am so burnt out from my job obligations, and personally lack that significant other, so I find myself unable to write at the moment.
Thank you for expressing exactly what my heart feels.
I wish for you a very Merry Christmas and a very blessed New Year!
Perhaps you have just sparked the inspiration for a poem for me. Thank you!
Christmas Word Weaver (Poetry) - 12/23/2010 12:27:54 PM
You are a wonderfully talented "word Weaver". This touched my heart.
A Pre-Thanksgiving Meal at the Boys' Home (Poetry) - 12/17/2010 9:30:05 PM
Truly a moving and meaningful offering, Stan; such a "communion" throughout this world would usher in peace at last. Thank you. Love and best wishes,
A Fool Still and Always (Poetry) - 12/15/2010 4:08:42 AM
I loved this deeply once
a very long long time ago
and your words take me back there
the emotional pain was crippling & horrible
but the lesson of it all is beautiful
I hope you survive the cancer Stan, and let
your heart love another
...someone who doesn't play games

this is a wonderful inspiring poem

preciousness hidden in our losses
you revive the appreciations of these teachings and growth when we are at our lowest...

Love's Bounty & Purpose
17 Miles From Anywhere (Poetry) - 11/28/2010 3:56:16 PM
I find this a very decent piece of work. I think you could drop S3 and make it stronger. For example, you could end with something like:
and I donít care
way out here
Nice and gentle local dialect and retrospective tone, even though it is recent past. Anyway, just some thoughts.
Bible Study (Poetry) - 11/21/2010 2:46:06 PM
Interesting reflections Stan. I like the realism of the situation and your personal point of view that stresses the irony without forgetting to be humane.
Beyond the Eclipse pt.1 (Poetry) - 11/20/2010 1:01:06 PM

this is a wonderful remembrance
Our Living Scars...
Bible Study (Poetry) - 11/12/2010 4:22:52 AM
the Bible chapters are so awesome to read
and absorb with personal perception
your friend could try not answering the phone
but it is good to not hold on to the feeling of
being blown off...or whatever you felt
in times when we expect nothing
A Fool Still and Always (Poetry) - 11/4/2010 7:37:33 PM
A poetic reflection and maybe a letter. Whatever one's past experiences and hurt, it always presents itself in different ways. And we make choices because we are living and daring creatures.
Today I Stand (Poetry) - 10/29/2010 6:47:38 PM
Poignant piece, Stan. I was especially moved when reading the following lines:
I will hear the rattle of their brittle bones
As they break these earthly bonds
feeling their hearts beat
Trying to calm their fears
Connected by this shared experience
destiny and fate".
Bible Study (Poetry) - 10/29/2010 5:07:51 AM
So many emotions expressed in this, Stan....it runs the scope from pain to humor. And I think, you've made your point well!
Bible Study (Poetry) - 10/26/2010 3:05:50 PM
I'm sorry, but I see humor, sadness, desperation and a whole mess of emotions in this short write...and I see them playing out on the screen.
Bible Study (Poetry) - 10/26/2010 2:05:16 PM
I think of the Bible as more of a guidline. I mean Moses wrote the old testement, and he left out the dinosaurs.

Insanity is repeating the same behavior hoping for a different result.
Hang in there buddy.

This is like Gene said, "powerful." I've missed you too Stan.
Good to see you again.

The images add substance to the feelings and meaning expressed in your verses, Stan. Thank you. Love and peace,
A Fool Still and Always (Poetry) - 8/16/2010 6:44:27 AM
How can you let love be the catalyst? You have survived so much, and now you let your heart overtake you? Think with your heart, not your mind, in this matter..If you feel love then go with it..
Don't live with regrets that will eat you up and spit you out.
This is a very open and honest flow of thoughts and feelings..Don't let fear stop you from living.
Good to read you again, I certainly hope you won't be gone as long as you have been..Missed you.
Peace, love and light,
A Fool Still and Always (Poetry) - 8/15/2010 7:46:19 PM
Your poem reminds me of the song: "Why Do Fools Fall In Love?" That being the case, I am the biggest of fools. I can relate to your meaningful verses, Stan. Love and peace,
A Fool Still and Always (Poetry) - 8/15/2010 10:08:50 AM
Stan, anyone who can rise above the pain to write like this
is no fool. So good to read you again. -gene.
A Fool Still and Always (Poetry) - 8/15/2010 6:18:03 AM
A heartfelt write...one could feel the pain, sadness and overwhelmming sense of loss...through all that you will still survive.
A Fool Still and Always (Poetry) - 8/14/2010 2:04:08 PM
Stan: Get out of your head and listen to your heart....God's speaking to you.

Fire (Poetry) - 9/20/2009 3:09:16 AM
Great to see your name come up on apost again Stan and with such a deep reflective write that touches on a mystery of life...does passsion breed poetry or does poetry breed passion. Perhaps a combination of both.
Autumn Requiem (Poetry) - 7/29/2009 8:35:16 AM

Beyond the Eclipse pt.1 (Poetry) - 6/23/2009 6:58:20 AM
the resonance of ever.after and before. . ..
the imperative BEing, endless, spiritual and full.
the truth of what always is inside us, longing to be heard and seen...really seen...felt.
absorbed and learned.
you transcend these thigns.
with your eyes and your heart and your pen.
so good tor ead you again.
Beyond the Eclipse [pt.2.] (Poetry) - 6/23/2009 6:56:04 AM
so mny lines....
exploring and imploring a deeper look --
self.discovery and illumination.....you inspire these things. . . .
Beyond the Eclipse [pt.2.] (Poetry) - 6/22/2009 12:25:08 PM
I really love that last stanza ALOT- it is the journey.
Beyond the Eclipse [pt.2.] (Poetry) - 6/22/2009 6:34:51 AM
Stan, it has been a pleasure watching you grow stonger and stronger in the writing craft, you keep raising your own bar, one poem at a time.
Beyond the Eclipse [pt.2.] (Poetry) - 6/20/2009 7:30:56 PM
Stan, you're right. I think wse've been on the same wavelength.
The thoughts may be similar, but you've outdone me with words like
of this withering, spirit
of soul, lying unfinished
like a book, half read
on the shelf
waiting ,to be reopened read to
Great stuff. -gene.
Beyond the Eclipse pt.1 (Poetry) - 6/20/2009 7:11:41 AM
Deep and reflective write... nice writing, very nice.
Beyond the Eclipse pt.1 (Poetry) - 6/19/2009 8:50:33 PM
Souls all over searching for a piece of peace. This reminds me of that scripture... it's eluding me a bit...something like...if you search for God in the fire, or in the thunder, you will not find Him, but in the quiet, inner voice you'll hear Him. I'll come back after I look that up, and give a better quote. All the same, I hope you find what you're seeking. --Charlie
Beyond the Eclipse pt.1 (Poetry) - 6/19/2009 7:07:08 PM
Someone once told me that mrmories and reality were separated by just one breath...
Your poem was riveting....
Beyond the Eclipse pt.1 (Poetry) - 6/19/2009 6:19:20 PM
Memories play tricks on us,and the more we remembr the more we see it differently than it was...Excellent poem, Stan...
gets us thinking...ET
Beyond the Eclipse pt.1 (Poetry) - 6/19/2009 3:46:19 PM
The difference of what we remember and what the reality is. Life can be so difficult at times...
Be always safe,
Beyond the Eclipse pt.1 (Poetry) - 6/19/2009 1:31:37 PM
Fortunately, Stan, the reality of what we're missing
exists...in memories. I look forward to pt. 2.

You have not been writing much have you? We can't have this going on! I wasn't here and i have about two hundred that I had when I left here. Get mad, write a poem, can't sleep, write a poem. Can't write a poem? WRITE A POEM! I am happy to see you too!
17 Miles From Anywhere (Poetry) - 5/28/2009 11:18:09 AM
Well, you have been doing some practicing! This was really good writing!
Morning Sounds of a Misty Morning (Poetry) - 5/24/2009 11:08:35 AM
Thanks for reviewing my Rainbow poem. I liked you take on it very much.
Yours of course is a million miles away and superb! I can easily relate to this, being an early morning 'angler myself.
Some of the sights and sounds in my fishing moments have inspired me also. Well written indeed ..Steve C. And, can I come climbing? lol
Again (Poetry) - 5/20/2009 2:05:07 AM
Stan from the intro of "....Again" to the poetic conclusion this poem was packed with emotions.
Thank you for sharing,

Again (Poetry) - 5/2/2009 4:47:13 PM
Unanswered prayer can be a blessing. Of course we can't know until after the storm. Powerful expression of faith, Stan. Thank you...
Again (Poetry) - 3/21/2009 8:19:08 AM
Stan, my respect (admiration) as a man and a writer.
Over the years I've come to think that the God we pray to
is us. -gene.

I've done that a few times, myself.
Again (Poetry) - 3/14/2009 5:49:39 PM
It's good to read this right now... funny synchronicity, this comes after a conversation I had with a friend. The words are simple and I think that the way you cut your sentences gives the right energy.
Again (Poetry) - 3/14/2009 9:49:30 AM
Great writing sweet man...keep smiling...Hugsss
Again (Poetry) - 3/14/2009 8:53:41 AM

Fine work, Stan....

Perfect. Thank God for again. Well penned, Stan.

Again (Poetry) - 3/14/2009 6:42:12 AM
All too often we give up but something keeps us going even when we don't think we have the strength, it is then I believe most in a greater power than ours.
Morning Sounds of a Misty Morning (Poetry) - 2/27/2009 8:10:07 PM
i hate to say it, but that ending hurt.
such a soft tragedy.
but i always enjoy the way you crush a heart gently.
Morning Sounds of a Misty Morning (Poetry) - 2/26/2009 8:13:24 AM
Well done, Stan, very well done!
Morning Sounds of a Misty Morning (Poetry) - 2/26/2009 5:25:18 AM
I, too, love misty mornings, especially in the wood, and I posted a poem recently called Foggy Wood Morn.
Morning Sounds of a Misty Morning (Poetry) - 2/25/2009 6:42:59 PM
Stan, your imagery is always so intimate,
just a joy to read and imagine!Superb poem!

in the steaming coffee and the morning mist. -gene.
Morning Sounds of a Misty Morning (Poetry) - 2/25/2009 10:36:52 AM
Very interesting write. The beginning is so relaxing, than becomes so sad. And I agree with Cindy, you can visualize this scene quite vividly.
Morning Sounds of a Misty Morning (Poetry) - 2/25/2009 8:35:38 AM
Stan, This is so well written!I can visualize this scene well because of your wonderful writing.Thank you!

My son In Iraq [my only son] (Poetry) - 2/6/2009 6:44:14 PM
I cannot imagine what it would be like to be separated for so long and for such a distance from your son. Blessings to you both,

on distant mountain tops
For, there is always hope

Deep Into Winter (Poetry) - 2/5/2009 12:29:37 PM
Wonderful imagery, artistry, and philosophical disposition. Particulary appreciated these lines:
"Greeting morning light
Like a hand rolled, twisted
waiting for that spark
"A lively crackle a wispy
thread of blue white
Much gratitude for the sharing,
My son In Iraq [my only son] (Poetry) - 12/27/2008 4:25:13 PM
:) You should be proud, God bless him and keep him safe, as well as you and yours. We are so blessed to have heroes like him protecting our country, he must be an amazing man.
My son In Iraq [my only son] (Poetry) - 12/27/2008 3:00:37 PM
I know you miss your son. I would if I had a son in the war. I don't even have anyone I know in it, so I cannot really grasp some of the feelings that you have. But prayers go with you and your son and the family for a Happy New Year and may he be sent home soon.
My son In Iraq [my only son] (Poetry) - 12/27/2008 8:32:24 AM
I hope he gets home soon. God bless your family!
My son In Iraq [my only son] (Poetry) - 12/26/2008 9:53:05 AM
Blessings to you and your son. He is so far away, and knowing he has a family is what keeps him alive and wanting to come home. Keep on lovingly telling him that.
Good speed to his return.
Blessings of the New Year to you Stan,
My son In Iraq [my only son] (Poetry) - 12/26/2008 3:37:02 AM
Peace to both of you, and I hope he gets home soon.
My son In Iraq [my only son] (Poetry) - 12/26/2008 1:34:14 AM
I can just see you standing there, chest all puffed out, as you talk about your Marine son! Good for him; good for you! Tell him he is in my prayers; may God keep him safe from harm! May God surround your son with warrior angels! (And there's nothin' finer than a Marine in uniform! TRUST me on that!! LOL Karla still teases me about that one!! LOL)
(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :D
I fell in front of a Marine once; two of them, in fact. I said I stepped in a hole, which I did, and Karla's like, "Yeah, yeah, right! You just wanted them to pick you up!" LOL Everytime I see a Marine, she always brings that up. She did yesterday; stepped into it reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeal good! LOL I was so mad at her!! LOL
My son In Iraq [my only son] (Poetry) - 12/25/2008 9:00:06 PM
You have a right to be proud and I hope he will return to you soon safe and sound.
My son In Iraq [my only son] (Poetry) - 12/25/2008 8:27:47 PM
A powerfully penned write of longing and love ... with gentle humor. Oorah! Marines look SO good in uniform, smelly or not, they still look sharp. =] Well done.
(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
Tell your son THANK YOU for his service and to stay safe!! He'll be in my prayers.

On That Day (Poetry) - 11/27/2008 7:24:12 PM
This has a melody that is really touching and soulful. The images you paint are quite simple, compared to some of your work, and they are effective in evoking beauty, nature and revelation of deep feelings.
