Beautiful poem, Stephen; I have had the pleasure of seeing them several times, mainly in Ohio, where I am from, but also here in Texas, where I now live (but don't call home!). I LOVE the northern lights! Well done! :)

MOM'S EARS POPPING (Poetry) - 7/20/2011 8:43:02 PM

UP IN THE ATTIC AGAIN (Poetry) - 3/31/2011 8:49:21 PM
The repetition of the phrase "in the attic" serves to emphasize the state of mind of your character; I find that quite effective. Love and peace to you,
TWINKLING TOWN LIGHTS (Poetry) - 3/8/2011 7:25:11 PM
This reminds me of when I was a child and we would go into Peace River, the nearest town which was down by the river. From up on the prairie at night, we could see twinkling lights such as you describe in this write, Stephen. Thanks for sharing. Love and peace,

AMY HAD A SECRET TO HIDE (Poetry) - 12/12/2009 9:34:27 PM
I am happy that you enjoyed this true tale of supposedly
love relationship gone bad. Yep, unfortunately it did happen,
even though I did catch on to what was going on, it sure didn't
make life happier for me at the time, but as time went on,
I discovered I was right and had her number.
I will have to get busy in the new year and write some pieces
of work that you'll enjoy reviewing.
Hope you have a joyous holiday.

Great poem for this season of sharing.
SPARKLING CHRISTMAS / BEAUTIFUL SIGHT (Poetry) - 11/16/2008 8:31:53 AM
Christmas is for all ages. It is to celebrat the birth of Christ also and that even a child can understand. The Christmas story must be told over and over again and when the holidays come it is easier to see what the children need to enjoy in their young life also. At 64 I sometimes act like a child and see through a child's eyes too. Yes, Christmas is for everyone to be happy and content throughout the coming year too.

You have managed to put into words the essense of my dear, sweet, always-the-same, a constant in my life, a loving woman who never wavers or changes -- she is called mom. Thanks for sharing what I didn't know how to. Cheers! Deborah
YOGI BERRA THE ENDURING LEGEND (Poetry) - 4/8/2008 9:23:43 PM
You gave alot of good history about him and baseball here and did it in a poetic way. I hadn't realized he turned 80. You are right, how can you not love the AFLAC commericals, they are always so funny. Thanks for this, I feel like I am going away educated, lol.
CHRISTIE'S AN APPLE OF A SWEETIE (Poetry) - 3/29/2008 3:51:37 AM
I dont know why..but as I read this, the song that came into my head was 'Don't Bring Lulu' (don't know if you'll know it..'You can bring Rose with the turned up nose, but don't bring Lulu...etc. etc.)..Christie reminds me of Lulu..the same type of woman...the last line goes 'she'll come by herself!'...I will have to 'look up' this song now. This song/poem has an 'old fashioned' charm about it that I like...Certainly has a niche all of its own... Love, Diana.
SEARCHING FOR THE RAINBOW LIGHTS IN THE NIGHT (Poetry) - 3/19/2008 3:03:22 PM

OLD MAN ROCKING ON THE PORCH (Poetry) - 2/13/2008 7:25:26 PM
I've heard music and songs from the Appalachians, and this would be a fun one--banjo, guitar, fiddle. Paints a moving picture of classic Americana.
MURAL OF APPLES (Poetry) - 2/12/2008 4:41:26 PM
I really like the pictures in my mind your writing inspires--a woman at her desk, daydreams of the beautiful days of youth brought on by a simple apple. Very well done, thanks for sharing.
MURAL OF APPLES (Poetry) - 2/10/2008 3:36:08 PM
