This is a truly beautiful work in cluding poetry that speaks to one's soul-very nice work.
Angels Talk (Book) - 3/24/2008 6:54:57 AM
Angels Talk is a beautiful, moving, inspirational piece of art. I loved reading every word, particularly after practicing yoga or taking a long nature walk - your poetry dovetails wonderfully with spiritual/meditative experiences. I particularly loved "know" and "sacred insane", but I find that each time I read through the book (which has been about three times already) a new poem speaks to me and ascends to the top of my favorite list. You are an evolved spirit and this shines forth through your words, their arrangement and even the spaces between your words. Congratulations on a beautiful book; I have and will continue to thoroughly enjoy it.

Eloise is such a pretty name.

on the Colorado river (Short Story) - 4/2/2009 6:53:35 AM
Debby...this is not "like awesome" when traveled down the Colorado but it's that "feeling" of actually seeing something so raw and steeped in age and wondering....Well written of course my friend! About 4 yrs ago, Joe and I and my granddaughter Meghan who was about 12 at the time took a 5 hour boat trip along the Colorado beginning around Blythe CA, and on up ... the water is shallow in several spots, and we had to manuever around the sand so we wouldn't get stuck... It was hot as you know, and we stopped overnite in some little town and there were no rooms, so Joe spent the nite with some guys camping, and Meghan and I slept on the boat which was very nice...We had such fun, but...that trip was plenty...no "want" to do it again! hehe... hugs, lindalaw
Providence (Short Story) - 1/20/2009 11:28:11 AM
Destiny is there and all around, when you take the time to be aware of every sensation within your being and surrounding you…free from the distractions of mind filled thoughts it is the angelic voice, the inner guide ready to lead you to your destiny.
This makes a lot of sense, Debby. Thank you. Love and blessings to you,

A great write Debby.. Taking care of those that are really ill is a job for special people such as your self . I can relate to your story as I am a nurse, wife, mother, daughter and grandmother. Sick people asorb the strength, kindness, love and understanding given to them . It helps them to flourish even if its for a little while.. This is a touching heart rendering story !.........M

1956 (Short Story) - 12/24/2006 7:30:07 PM
I'm not turning fifty...but almost half way there. I do remember the days of Mayberry, Lassie, and playing the 45's loud on the record player. My mom worked in a local drug store, my sister and I often got new 45's before our friends from the salesmen or sometimes the display records, we got many of the old magazines that didn't sell during the month, the cover would be cut off, but still those wonderful posters of Elvis and other great singers were still inside. I too experienced the change of styles...ooh those bell bottoms were something else...do you remember the elephant leg pants...yuck. My mom was also a seamstress and often tried the new styles out on my sister and I...we were human ginnie pigs. Loved this write...took me back, oh yeah do you remember the diet sodas...Fresca and Tab..nasty stuff. Man I was glad when Diet Dr. Pepper came along. Great write enjoyed the trip down memory lane.
Blessings and Merry Christmas,

courage (Poetry) - 6/2/2015 7:34:55 AM
This is something that is only truly conceivable to those who experience this sort of life first hand. I join others who have commented, in saying that I relate to this in so many ways ...and I agree - You must have been placed thus, so that you could share your unique views with the rest of us.
courage (Poetry) - 5/30/2015 6:15:30 AM
Our uniqueness can be a joy in itself...We learn to adapt to our individual circumstances..
Our souls journey gathers what it needs along our spiritual path...
And our thoughts prepave for joy or otherwise...
courage (Poetry) - 5/29/2015 9:58:38 AM
As you say, 'the soul grows ... unbridled' - that gives one an advantage, especially one with courage. Well done.
courage (Poetry) - 5/27/2015 8:03:01 AM
I must say I do not know what being an orphan means because I had my grandparents… All four of them and my parents for a very long time.
But I don't ever remember my grandparents spoiling or coddling me. In fact, they were tougher taskmasters than my parents.

spring times 3 (Poetry) - 4/11/2015 9:51:43 AM
Great little vignettes of awakening spring. I have an orange and stripy in my yard often from the neighbors' multiple cats. The other evening I was observing a little gecko feeding on the screen of my window when "Bam!" the squashed face of the orange and stripy hit the screen hard in the poor little lizard was an evening snack.
I have an apricot tree that has only bloomed once or twice and has never had fruit. It is the absolute last to have leaves in the spring, but the birds love it, so it stays.
spring times 3 (Poetry) - 4/9/2015 9:59:00 AM

gentle came the rain (Poetry) - 4/6/2015 4:51:37 AM
Gentle rain is nice to have once in a while. Especially because it replenishes the earth. But I find that if it is prolonged, rain leads to melancholy. Let's hope the morning is clear and bright with dew dripping everywhere.
gentle came the rain (Poetry) - 4/6/2015 3:55:19 AM

playing with pauses (Poetry) - 4/3/2015 6:16:36 AM
That is profound. But people still try to create dynasties and to think they have timeless answers to everything. But the universe isn't constructed that way and we must accept change to be inevitable.

You missed one. Our cluster of galaxies is rapidly accelerating away from the Big Bang, soon to exceed the speed of light. That said, I love speed because it gives me an exhilaration I don't get anywhere else… Just as long as there are no sudden stops. ;-)
Kate says it well. You have blended several philosophical viewpoints into one poem very nicely.
spiraling (Poetry) - 9/21/2014 7:26:35 AM
Excellent exposition of holding the tensile force of the universe: the now which is ever-present in the light of the moment that rushes by. How you have managed to simplify such thoughts into a straightforward narrative of drive, colour and conviction is wonderful here, Debby. A fabulous piece of poetry, physics and philosophy. xx

Debby, you have given us a time capsule to use in working out how we might want to live our lives. I so loved this . . . "how could I possibly hold on to yesterday / it’s millions of miles gone past." How so indeed. This is one hell of a "teaching" poem. Thank you.

pursuit (Poetry) - 8/18/2014 2:26:13 PM
courage and strength are the core of a developed spiritual and social nature ...to successfully handle life one must also be able to learn from the constructive criticism of others who care to steer us along ... if we can't handle it, we are weak and alone and will see and only see the "aloneness of all in one" ... my twist on an interesting poem ...
pursuit (Poetry) - 8/18/2014 9:11:31 AM
To pursue is the will of survival. Everything makes haste while the sun shines. Interesting images appeared while I read. Especially with the last stanza.

I never heard birds so vividly as when I woke up one morning in Guatemala and went out on the deck of my hotel to the cacophony of the early-morning activity of birds I had never heard before and probably never will hear again. Still, I can hear the sparrows that constantly flock around the water and birdseed we put out, as well as the unmistakable sound of mourning doves and the delightful morning charades by the talented mockingbird.

...when the Sun reaches its Summer
turning point...a moment to greet

recognize the magic and majesty

Solstice Greetings! Debby.

The peak of summer is emerging upon us. It has ben so hot and dry but the wind keeps blowing, the sea breeze, bringing with it occasional showers briefly drenching before quickly passing on with the breeze that is the only thing keeping the hot nights sane.

very soothing quality to this one

Your poem speaks of natural wonder. Something that is so beautiful and magical that poetry is trying to describe since it was first written. With your words, have described pink on green very well.

Your poem can soothe many wounds
but it's hard to enjoy such beauty
when someone is always trying to kick you in the teeth.

enjoyed the read!!
aquarius moon (Poetry) - 5/28/2014 7:35:15 AM
While I read several times, I'm not sure who the "they" are you are writing about. The title suggests that the poem is about something Aquarian or "enlightening." But I'm sorry, I was not enlightened. I see that others were greatly so. They must have more insight than I.
aquarius moon (Poetry) - 5/28/2014 3:58:07 AM
wow. your poem speaks to me as introversion. i love it.
aquarius moon (Poetry) - 5/27/2014 11:08:01 AM
A thought-provoking poem! It is said that the human's behavior is somehow connected with the stars and the moon, and is governed by them in which how the humans would act and feel.
However, I don't think it's necessary for anyone to understand everyone though, for the human's behavior varies. In order to understand all human's behavior you'll need to be a psychiatrist; but even so, there have been many professionals who had failed to understand the human's behavior.
I think all one needs to do is to manage one's OWN life, and make good of himself/herself. There is no need to worry about others unless they are directly relating to us; or that perhaps they are truly in need of someone else's support and understanding.
aquarius moon (Poetry) - 5/27/2014 10:21:14 AM

sun beams (Poetry) - 3/4/2014 8:44:58 AM
That can be very dangerous. I prefer to let cameras take the beautiful pictures that I see of the sun and its magnificent ability to power our world. I take great comfort in knowing that it is only about halfway through its life and that we have 3 or 4 billion years yet before the fuel within it begins to burn out and endanger the Earth.

once caught up in the momentum of creation, the finish is just the surface of its depths ... creation has a tendency to loop, at least until it finishes being observed ...
looper (Poetry) - 2/3/2014 12:27:16 PM
You never have to wonder about the finish, because this seasons repeat themselves every year on cue, in a never-ending cycle as long as the earth rotates on its axis and around the sun.

orange (Poetry) - 1/21/2014 10:34:49 AM
I think that sunshine settled in the orange. Giving us vitamin C during the long winter and reminding us that we are so dependent upon the orange light of the sun, no matter how low in the sky this time of year.
orange (Poetry) - 1/21/2014 9:41:18 AM
Debby, it looks like you have split the energy of sunlight into its simplest components like a prism spewing a ray of orange to the rest of us. Perfect images.

freights (Poetry) - 1/12/2014 2:05:25 PM
So good to read you again, Debby, and I, too, am becoming more aware of sounds that hitherto have been my environmental 'white noise'. In fact, all my senses are far more awake then I think they have been before; perhaps it's an 'age-thing'?! :) I like how you conjure this awareness so effectively and yet simply. Has a haunting quality that is both calming and faintly disquieting. Nice! Do hope you're well. xx
freights (Poetry) - 1/12/2014 11:25:25 AM

the roaring thunder of life penetrates the many tunnels we burrow through, the closer we get to the station, the further we go ... it is our loco motive in our ears ...
freights (Poetry) - 1/10/2014 9:22:09 AM
Yes, if we live near the tracks, the sounds of freight's become part of our daily life.
I'm trying to find and can't remember a famous poet from the 60s whose poetry was often on the radio. I remember picking up one of his coffee table books and reading a very long poem that he wrote about, "I Remember Trains."
freights (Poetry) - 1/10/2014 2:41:46 AM

"one finds a search that will never end" Indeed! At some point in the journey (I've learned personally that) enlightenment will have compassion on its seekers and, in so doing, reveal to them that planting and tending a garden, partaking of its beauty, and eating of its bounty, is infinitely more rewarding. Thought-provokingly rendered.

Time was ... I'd have agreed... and Time has yet to prove me wrong... truth be told, I'd rather be out of Time just in time to plan a timely time-out timed to the tune of some 'old-time' rhyme... I guess it's true what they say about timing... it's everything... and nothing can compare to a well-timed remark... so I'll conclude where your poem left off: "Time is only as real as your last thought"... and that, dear Deb, is a timeworn truth.
