Nice cosy poetic piece. Sipping tea and reading a favorite book in a cool cottage. What can be more enticing?
Brianna's Cottage (Poetry) - 2/26/2011 3:27:59 PM
Nice! I've seen cottages that invite just the kind of person and the kind of thinking you mention in your poem. My wife and I hve been to Nova Scotia and along the coastline, have seen many such cottages which welcome you with a cup of tea.

Dear Shelley, I came across this gate and wondered who is behind it. I finally peaked through the key hole and guess what I saw? A litle doll playing with a small bird. I wondered what language they were talking, as I myself talk every day with my lovely and free flying birds. Have you noticed? Why did you stop writing, you have a great talent, use it. My friends will admire you. You know already a few of them. Love Emile

What a message of committment and labor of love for Jesus Christ and us as His companions.
The Bird (Poetry) - 7/15/2008 9:52:21 AM

You have a great sense of humor!
The Bird (Poetry) - 6/16/2008 9:25:55 AM
Hi Shelley, I read your poem, "The Bird" I found it a fun read. It is quite lyrical. It could be turned into a song. Best of luck with your writing. Please feel free to visit my site here in the "Den"

Brianna's Cottage (Poetry) - 1/26/2008 3:42:25 PM
I have an aunt with a cottage like that in the mountains-comforting to read.
The Unknown gate (Poetry) - 8/26/2007 7:17:36 AM
The Unknown Gate stands as evidence that humankind is as curious as the cat but more cerebral. The cat would swipe a paw and end the mystery. We tend to consider the mystery from 47 angles first, and then share our curiosity with others. We may never open the door for what we gain in revelation we lose in mystery.
Aren't we a crazy bunch?
Loved your poem.
The Unknown gate (Poetry) - 7/10/2007 10:20:16 AM
Gates are like the Dark-its better to always stay mysterious
Brianna's Cottage (Poetry) - 6/26/2007 10:10:39 AM
Thanks for taking me to Brianna's Cottage, the joy thief is obviously not allowed to enter.
Keep the Faith and God Bless You and Your Loved Ones
Brianna's Cottage (Poetry) - 4/25/2007 9:03:49 AM
As ivy doth climb upon its walls
lending life waiting to enter in,
gives the feeling of the simple life
like sipping tea with the next of kinn.
Warmth and laughter linger behind its door
pale linen curtains white and shear,
Brianna's cottage invites those
who visit from far and near.
Dear Shelley...I want to visit Brianna's Cottage...what a write...warm, cherubic, and realistic....Hoping to read more of your works in future....simple but wonderful write....keep it up....cheers...love n luck...BHUWAN!!!!

This is a fine testimonial of faith, Shelley. I thank you for sharing it. Love and peace to you,
The Bird (Poetry) - 4/14/2007 10:30:49 PM
Cleverly done, Shelley. I've often loved to play with rhyme but to bring meaning as well is not so easy. You've done a fine job here and I appreciate your photography as well. Thank you for sharing your gifts. Love and peace to you,
The Unknown gate (Poetry) - 4/14/2007 10:28:19 PM
"And wander what lurks behind"
I think you meant to write "wonder" in this line but I could be wrong.
I always appreciate it when others point out my "typos."
Notwithstanding, I love your poem. It "speaks" to me because I believe it is of a universal and timeless theme of humans on this planet.
Thank you for sharing this. Welcome to AD. Love and peace to you,
The Unknown gate (Poetry) - 4/14/2007 9:22:04 PM
A suspensful mystery that makes the imagination grow wild! Hmmmmmmm you are making even me wonder!
The Unknown gate (Poetry) - 4/14/2007 9:13:32 PM
Stirs my thoughts wondering now myself! Hmmmm? Leave a copy of the poem on the gate and see what happens!

The Pathway I Travel (Poetry) - 4/9/2007 9:00:00 PM
Lovely photograph! Interesting write on theory. Are our paths preordained?
The Pathway I Travel (Poetry) - 4/9/2007 6:23:22 PM
Shelley, If we believe, God guides our footsteps in every pathway that we choose to take. He doesn't cause our wrongs but, if we are under His wing, He will guide us to our destiny. Enjoyed this much! Welcome to our great community of writers!
The Pathway I Travel (Poetry) - 4/9/2007 1:16:36 PM
Preach on Sister. The path has been paved for us. All we have to do is follow our hearts.
The Pathway I Travel (Poetry) - 4/9/2007 12:22:31 PM
Oh boy Shelley, this is powerful. I guess we all have pathways we don't understand. I can reflect on my difficult paths and revel in how they have become my greatest highways. Sent with love, Amy S
The Pathway I Travel (Poetry) - 4/9/2007 12:21:07 PM
A fine poetic testimony to ones faith in the One True Living God. Welcome to Authors Den. Blessings ...
Light and Wisdom ...
The Bird (Poetry) - 4/9/2007 3:11:20 AM
I like the rhyme, flow and of course, the bird. I'll often try to mimic a bird when they whistle and you'd be surprised at how many will keep answering back, or would you? You know what they say about birds of a feather. (lol) Seriously, Enjoyed much.
The Bird (Poetry) - 4/9/2007 12:37:29 AM
The rhyme is good and it has a good whimiscal feel...
The Bird (Poetry) - 4/8/2007 8:46:46 PM
Cute bird! Like the photograph, goes well with your interesting write.
The Bird (Poetry) - 4/8/2007 8:25:52 PM
Looks like the odd bird out. Interesting picture, and entertaining poem. -- Jeff
