I like your style, Sheri. I think it's very unique the way you personify Bugsy in your story. It has a touching quality that draws the reader in and have a close up peek of how a bunny thinks and feels. Wonderful story.

I was unable to be there when my mom unexpectedly passed away 15 months ago. I am glad that you were able to spend those last seven days with your mom...even if she wasn't coherent I am sure she knew you were there.

A touching and uplifting piece. Nice one.
A Day In A Pond (Short Story) - 1/2/2008 7:14:51 PM
A touching story written so simply yet with a kind of emotion that can only be described as tempered, disciplined and wise. Painful experiences are there to let us know the depth and substance of the human nature, the way that it reacts to trials and how it struggles to get itself out from a painful situation. This is a good one, Sheri. Continue to shine, 'little girl'.

A heartwarming and inspiring story. Innocent children are sometimes bearers of extraordinary messages to help us cope with extraordinary challenges in life. Enjoyed this piece, Sheri.
A Day In A Pond (Short Story) - 1/1/2008 6:09:08 PM
As usual, your story didn't fail to touch my heart. In life, pain and heartbreak make us strong and wiser. The different experiences we encounter each day have more to do with maturity than how many birthdays we've celebrated. In the end, we are responsible of who we become and what significance such an experience may leave in our character. Thank you for being a good friend, Sheri.
A Day In A Pond (Short Story) - 1/1/2008 3:59:54 PM

Heart warming life lesson story with such warmth that it has to make you feel good to read.
A Day In A Pond (Short Story) - 1/1/2008 4:09:26 AM
I do believe that angels exist and the little girl was an angel or was guided by a Higher Entity. The story is an excellent account of how a seemingly small and insignificant event can bring up courage and change the course of one's life. It is also a testimony that there are circumstances in one's worldly existence that defy rationalization and can only be ultimately be attributed to Divine Help. Thank you, my dear, for sharing this piece.
Black Butterfly (A Recollection) (Short Story) - 12/30/2007 7:38:05 PM
You have been given the gift of possessing a loving and filial heart, Sheri. I have an ailing mother who was diagnosed with a terminal disease. When I stumbled upon your honest and emotional story/recollection of your mother's final days, it gave me a a new introspection on my own mother's plight and you have profoundly inspired me to be a better daughter than a better person to others. From the depths of my heart, I thank you Sheri, for this beautiful and touching story, and for somehow touching my soul. Blessings to you, my new friend. May the new year bring you more love, prosperity and peace in your home.
Black Butterfly (A Recollection) (Short Story) - 12/23/2007 6:13:34 PM

Our moods are established by a frown or smile Sheri. More often than not they precede our emotional set rather than reflect was has been. Mirror of clarity or not, wear the smile that is always present within the human spirit my dear friend. A smile is the countenance that adorns human triumph. A great deal of introspection and worldly wisdom here Sheri. Aloha my dear friend. Jon Michael

Sheri, it is so good to note you are back and recovered my dear friend. Ah, a message from your child. Husbands and wives are husbands and wives until they no longer are. Friends, they may come and go. But you child, is your child for your entire life. A message rich in paternal love. May peace and love be always with you. Jon Michael

Don't we all experience this form of exercise once or twice in our lifetime? If it gives relief to the aching heart, well, it can't be so futile. Well penned, Sheri.
My Tulips (Poetry) - 6/21/2010 4:10:27 PM
You are like your tulips, dear Sheri. Graceful, unique and beautiful!
Destiny (Poetry) - 6/21/2010 4:08:29 PM
Oh, Sheri this is so heartfelt. I can feel the anguish in every line. Maybe it's OK to befriend destiny and ask to please take you back somewhere in time where you wanna be...
Destiny (Poetry) - 6/21/2010 11:13:55 AM
Oh Sheri, This pulls at the heartstrings, it is an unexplainable feeling what it is like to not be able to be in a little ones life..I am not sure of the cirucumstance, but feel the ache.
love and big hug,

There's sadness in the beautiful verses. Sadness is probably the last freedom in this difficult world. It heals the soul.

A lovely poem. I must admit I am not a flower person. When I did purchase them they were always roses. But what do I know?
GOD BLESS YOU

My Tulips (Poetry) - 6/7/2010 5:12:50 PM
Sheri, flowers are my favorite form of flora -- I have never seen an ugly flower -- whenever flowers are about, the atmosphere is relaxed calm and warm -- in a poem I once wrote, flowers, my messengers of choice -- your rendering reflects many of my personal impressions of these wonderful creations of God -- very engaging my friend -- may peace and love be always with you -- Jon Michael
My Tulips (Poetry) - 6/7/2010 4:43:44 PM
Dear Sheri, I like your poem about the tulips. I too like flowers in general. You can visit my poem and my garden. Here is an excerpt:
I love flowers, not in bouquets
Alive, not cut in any ways
I care for them, give them room
In return they show me their bloom
My Tulips (Poetry) - 6/7/2010 3:58:49 PM
They are definately a beautiful sign of summer...

Exercise Of Futility (Poetry) - 5/18/2010 1:41:33 AM
This is very heartfelt and full of pain with the ending being the punch line. There are many of us that have had more than our share of exercises in futility, only to go back and exercise again. This poem shows the thoughts of a person who is wondering why she/he keeps going through that exercise of futility. All I can Sheri is, we have all been there a time or two, maybe more. Thank you for sharing.
May the Lord Bless you, and those whom you love, and be with you always, and walk by your side. With love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your den sister Barbie

I keep wondering
Like a fool who blindly seeks
A never ending reality
I need to stop this exercise of futility.

To me your water lily is very symbolic and meaningful, Sheri. Thank you for sharing this apt and timely write. Love and blessings to you,
A Morning Praise (Poetry) - 5/4/2010 5:36:45 PM
In my novel "The Paradise of Revenge," my devout young heroine Josefina Camarillo greets each morning sunrise outdoors and on her knees communing with God.
If I had read your "A Morning Praise" before I wrote my novel, I think I would have done a better job.
Very uplifting and spiritual. I love it!
Exercise Of Futility (Poetry) - 5/4/2010 5:31:06 PM
The book for you, my dear Sheri, is "He's Just Not That Into You" by Greg Behrendt and Liz Tuccillo.
It's been highly successful in sales, most likely since an enormous number of women endure the same feelings you express in "Exercise Of Futility."
But while the book takes a somewhat clinical approach, your posted work shares deep feelings with us. I like your version better!

A Resolution (Poetry) - 4/24/2010 2:25:11 PM
a magnificent poetic expression of introspection Sheri -- you assembled each word with great care and purpose -- it worked out beautifully my friend -- peace and love be always with you -- Jon Michael
A Promise (Poetry) - 4/24/2010 2:20:55 PM
Sheri, this is the kind of unconditional love everyone seeks -- too many make promises in the heat of passion that they are either unable or unwilling to keep when diversity rages -- peace and love to you my dear friend -- Jon Michael
Exercise Of Futility (Poetry) - 4/23/2010 4:56:36 PM
Sheri, lovely, lonely, longing to be reunited -- the questions the breaking heart seeks answers to -- "Go Blame It On Midnight" --"Shame on the Moon" -- a Bob Segar rendition of a Rodney Crowell song -- silence is the mortal morass of perpetual grieving -- move away from those places into the light of hope and promise -- energy is oozing with the passion of your write my friend -- you said this thing with style and understanding -- may peace and love be always with you -- Jon Michael
Exercise Of Futility (Poetry) - 4/20/2010 6:07:56 PM
Against tremendous odds, some stay in the sanctuary of silence, heart longing, never forgetting.
