Complexities of The Heart, The Diversity of Love and Passion (Book) - 3/20/2009 12:20:35 AM
Congratulations on your new book, Ed!

Souls Adjoining (Poetry) - 9/16/2013 3:02:14 PM
People come into your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime. When you figure out which one it is, you will know what to do for each person. When someone is in your life for a REASON . . . It is usually to meet a need you have expressed. They have come to assist you through a difficulty, to provide you with guidance and support, to aid you physically, emotionally, or spiritually. They may seem like a godsend, and they are! They are there for the reason you need them to be. Then, without any wrong doing on your part, or at an inconvenient time, this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end. Sometimes they die. Sometimes they walk away. Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand. What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled, their work is done. The prayer you sent up has been answered. And now it is time to move on. When people come into your life for a SEASON . . .Because your turn has come to share, grow, or learn. They bring you an experience of peace, or make you laugh. They may teach you something you have never done and that is to learn love. They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy. Believe it! It is real! But, only for a season... It was for a season... love never dies... it remains for an eternity... Love and Light Lily

I can certainly relate to the meaning and sentiments that you have expressed through you verses, Ed. Thank you for sharing. Love and peace, Regis

Souls Adjoining (Poetry) - 9/13/2013 6:26:03 AM
Yes, very beautifully expressed. I feel transported back to nineteen century poetry with your language and the intent. It is really unfortunate that your relationship didn't last, especially when you wrote such beautiful poetry for her to enjoy. That reminds me of the time my girlfriend and I drove 60 miles to Minneapolis to watch the hokey movie, Love Story. At some point, when she realized the tragedy was coming, my girlfriend started crying. She didn't stop when we left the theater or all the way home on that long drive on the interstate. When I asked her why she was crying so much she just said, “That's us!” She was having difficulty knowing that my spinal cord injury was growing worse and there was nothing that could be done about it––that was over forty years ago––the tragedy never happened like she thought it would. I only saw The Last of the Mohicans once, too, and was mesmerized by the wilderness and the native people. I want to see it again. Why women fall asleep while watching such fascinating stories, I'll never know. Ron

So beautiful Ed Even though relationships end for whatever reason it is difficult to get the person's soul connection to end. >I feel that we are destined to find perhaps a few of those soul connections ,if we are lucky. Just have to embrace each and every moment in life and live! Lots of peace love and light Amber

In Stardust (Poetry) - 9/12/2013 6:10:33 PM
An odd thing occured to me just now... write what I am feeling and what I have experienced. Thank you, Eddy. Love and peace, Regis

Lay With Me Forever (Poetry) - 9/12/2013 6:09:10 PM
True love (intimate and all that comes with love) is the best. Nicely done, Eddy. Love and best wishes, Regis

Dreams and Memories (Poetry) - 9/12/2013 6:07:55 PM
True love is everlasting, Even when a heart's betrayed. Seek the light of happiness, It's all for which we've prayed. Love this, Eddy. I want to think I've been "betrayed" so it gives me an excuse for hurting. She did not "betray" me. I love her more than ever. Your words spoke to me. Thank you. Love and peace, Regis

A Birthday Gift (Poetry) - 9/12/2013 4:40:45 PM
A fine tribute and gift well-shared. Nicely done, Ed. Love and peace, Regis

A Birthday Gift (Poetry) - 8/23/2013 8:14:31 AM
A very personal and loving gift. Ron

I Am (Poetry) - 7/30/2013 6:59:35 PM
I love the rhyme of your poetry. It adds so much more beauty to the love expressed in youir writing.

Cry Not (Poetry) - 7/30/2013 6:56:14 PM
You are great at expressing your feelings, now always an easy thing to do. You say the things so many of us wish that we could do.

Lay With Me Forever (Poetry) - 7/30/2013 6:54:19 PM
Very nice. My wife and I have been together 47 years now and your words still ring true.

Dreams and Memories (Poetry) - 7/30/2013 6:51:52 PM
Very interesting, Ed. J. True love is everlasting, Even when a heart's betrayed. Great lines!

Dreams and Memories (Poetry) - 3/9/2013 10:45:43 AM
“[As] life's footsteps slip away.” It's such a wonderful line, like most of the poem that is filled with so much wisdom and insight for such a brief discourse. You have real talent and others here are noticing it as well as I. Ron

Dreams and Memories (Poetry) - 3/9/2013 8:16:27 AM
This is interesting you make mention of the other author. A conclusion can be made from this wonderful expressive poem you are filled with frustration. A conclusion of dreams lost with this author or someone else in your life. Heartfelt wonderful poem excellent expression. Di

Dreams and Memories (Poetry) - 3/9/2013 5:13:56 AM
We adjust our dreams with the time that passes by but may they always be beautiful. Sweet dreams and beautiful memories are the fruit of a loving soul. A beautiful poem Ed

Dreams and Memories (Poetry) - 3/8/2013 6:31:54 PM
I believe dreams change if you can't fulfill the dreams you want. Disappointments can do that. Seeking the light of happiness is the best thing to do. Prayer is the best thing you can do as well. Gail

Dreams and Memories (Poetry) - 3/8/2013 9:52:08 AM
The wise heart always keeps sweet memories... and aye dreams can change daily.... conclusions at best are one-sided and only to the person who forms them... Life is a mystery upon all of us... Excellent poetry... Love and Light Lily (thank you for the recognition that I inspired this - but you spelled my last name wrong)

Dreams and Memories (Poetry) - 3/8/2013 9:17:36 AM

You must be eternally blessed that such Angel lays her head every night on your chest.

Lay With Me Forever (Poetry) - 1/19/2013 2:39:52 PM
This is beautiful, I hope you can have your angel it's filled with a lot of beauty brought by your penned emotions. Gail

Lay With Me Forever (Poetry) - 1/19/2013 7:41:27 AM
Right off a little history :) A legend says that Cupid and/or Eros brought pink quartz stones to earth, hoping that it would spread love, warmth and passion... Another myth mentions that when Adonis was attacked by Ares, God of War, his lover Aphrodite tried to help him. On her way she caught herself on a thorny bush and when she finally arrived it was already too late, Adonis had died. Their blood mingled and the white quartz in the area was stained to a pink color. Zeus felt pity for them both, and every year he would restore Adonis to life for half a year. Otherwise a lovely poem, very romantic and tender Love and Light Lily

Lay With Me Forever (Poetry) - 1/19/2013 5:18:02 AM
Simply lovely romantic poetry! What a blessed lady to have such a tribute! Peace love and light Amber

Lay With Me Forever (Poetry) - 1/19/2013 5:15:56 AM
Nice ode to an angel and I believe in them also. They come in many guises but you know them when they come.

In Stardust (Poetry) - 12/18/2012 12:06:56 PM
This is a beautiful vision... and a beautiful description... It touches everything completely... down to lovely memories that can be held... for the one you love... Gifts are meant as treasures, to be held closely always... Love and Light Lily

A beautiful love poem to a woman you love Gail

Surrendered Souls (Poetry) - 8/20/2012 8:32:23 AM
A beautiful poem but not with the deep passionate love I saw in the ones you wrote for the other woman. But, still emotionally written Ed Gail

Internet Reflections (Poetry) - 8/19/2012 8:22:02 PM
This is a beautiful poem given to a woman you must have met online. In fact I have an idea she is married but unhappily and you wish her the best in finding what she needs. Gail

Anniversary (Poetry) - 8/5/2012 1:00:06 PM
Of course at the time of this writing, it was inspired by an earlier time. She would never come home with you as she was all about falseness which is so sad. I can fully review this since I have your book... But the sentiments were beautiful and also sad a the end. A wonderful romantic write Love and Light Lily

Loves First Tears (Poetry) - 8/5/2012 12:55:39 PM
It is unfortunate that the one you thought you loved, and of course later discovered you didn't should have had this written about her. However! The good thing is that it brought out more of your talent that you kept hidden. All things good and not good have a purpose, and you have discovered what inspires you to write on some levels. Loved this of course Love and Light Lily

Despair of Dreams (Poetry) - 8/5/2012 12:52:30 PM
Aye, I am aware of the whole story behind this. But as you said dear Eddy, you truly felt no loss for you never really loved her. However, you do write very well about tainted words, lies, a false love, and never the intention to commit to your soul. As you know, good thing. She is not a well soul. Love and Light Lily

Dragons Words (Poetry) - 8/5/2012 12:46:09 PM
Smiling only because I know what helped create this masterful piece Eddy. Please write more, you have the talent! Love and Light Lily

My Woman (Poetry) - 8/5/2012 12:40:58 PM
Of course I think this is beautiful, a beautiful testimony to a woman you would love. Love and Light Lily

Believe (Poetry) - 8/5/2012 12:26:20 PM
Since this was written in 2007 it must have been with someone else, I would like to see the rest of the poem. The beginning has captured my attention. Gail

Despair of Dreams (Poetry) - 7/20/2012 7:18:00 PM
Sadly, the theme that you share through your verses is an all too common and universal one in this life/world, Ed. Love, peace, and best wishes, Regis

My Only (Poetry) - 6/9/2012 9:19:05 AM

My Only (Poetry) - 4/29/2012 7:27:19 AM
Ed, This poem has the feel of an old romantic love sonnet. Shakespeare would be proud! Lovely work, and it is so good to see you posting once again!! Much peace, love and light, Amber

My Only (Poetry) - 4/29/2012 7:22:40 AM
Your word choices lend to the romance of this piece, Ed, and these are beautiful verses. I've been watching Showtime's Tudor series on DVD (story of King Henry VIII), and I am in the right frame of mind to enjoy the feel of this poem. Nicely penned! Sheila

Unforgotten (Poetry) - 4/16/2012 11:49:56 AM

Unforgotten (Poetry) - 4/15/2012 7:54:15 AM
So poignant. My uncle disappeared (with his girlfriend–unsubstantiated at the time) in 1962. When one of her five children found them in 2006, he had died in 1995, and she died in 2005. Too late for poems. Fortunately, they left their home to neighbors still filled with pictures and mementos of their fugitive life. My uncle kept track of his five children through the local small-town paper, But, through all those years, he never contacted them with any remorse. Ron

Unforgotten (Poetry) - 4/15/2012 4:01:01 AM
Oh how bittersweet our lives can be. At least he has some closure in this unforgotten part of his life. Sweet words for him to convey to his loved one. You have been missed very much. Good to see you here again!! Peace, love and light, Amber

It sounds like you and Ed (my man) would get on well. You hold the same political views. I'm not an American so would hesitate to voice my opinion at this point as it would not be an informed one. I do agree though that the law is the law and even the President is not above it. Good write. :) Chanti

CAp & Trade (Global Warming Bill) (Poetry) - 7/1/2009 8:45:21 AM
The Climate Change Bill is a scam using the phony threat of man-made global warming to tax the carbon life cycle and regulate every facet of our lives. Al Gore, of course, owns the company you'll be buying your carbon credits from. This is the same racket the Catholic Church used to use when they sold indulgences. This will force all industry out of the United States and transfer any remaining wealth we have to off-shore bankers. We are going third-world fast. Couple this with the coming dollar crisis and fake flu pandemic where they will try to mass vaccinate everybody and you have real hard-core tyranny headed our way. Thank you for this. People better wake up..........

CAp & Trade (Global Warming Bill) (Poetry) - 7/1/2009 7:53:24 AM

CAp & Trade (Global Warming Bill) (Poetry) - 7/1/2009 6:17:46 AM
A strong poem. It's great that you're addressing this topic. Thanks for sharing this:) Sheila

Allegiance (Poetry) - 7/1/2009 5:57:48 AM
Roosevelt's original ideas hit the nail on the head. Our ancestors came from other places. However, they came here knowing they would become American, with PRIDE. That's the biggest difference between then and now. I do know many immigrants who are going about things the right way legally and working hard. I know just as many who are not. The latter ones are the problem. They take cheap housing, jobs, and freebees. Sad that we're letting it happen. It's an invasion that we're allowing. Great job expressing your opinion here! Hugs, Sheila

CAp & Trade (Global Warming Bill) (Poetry) - 7/1/2009 3:17:48 AM

Oh the pain of cutting words from a loved one - I know it too well! You wrote this really from a heart that loved, "You'll always be remembered" is what we all can say for goodbyes can be said, but the heart never says goodbye. Cynthia

Complexities of The Heart (Poetry) - 2/26/2009 12:58:34 AM
Hello Ed J., A very honest poem about the heart. It IS complex and beyond logic. Cynthia

This Rose (Poetry) - 1/30/2009 6:17:54 AM
I think you are right about flowers having meanings which are different for a woman than for a man. For one thing, there is a "language of flowers," and most men do not speak nor understand that tongue, while many women do. Leads to a lot of misunderstanding of intent. Never give a woman a dozen red roses unless you really mean what they are saying. Very risky. On your bio, you mentioned having one of your poems copied by someone and placed on some Website, marked "author unknown." Me too. This has happened to most of us from time to time. A couple of my friends have even had their work stolen and published under someone else's byline (that is far worse). Copyright law has loopholes. One of the loopholes is the required for-profit motive of the thief. Then there is the "education or research" loophole, where your works can be pilferred to be used in a book which is educational or for research (your permission is not necessary in this case). In either case, about the only thing you can do is complain to the Website/Publisher and demand that your poem either be removed or your byline placed on it. In most cases, your poem will be snagged and used with your byline intact, and that gives you one more publication credit. Ted

Hello Ed J. Very loving and tender, like Elvis' "Love Me Tender" song. Ah yes...the font...for people like me with age clouding the eyesight, I found it hard to read as the letters seemed to "cluster" together. But the poem is very good. Cynthia

Beyond touching. Heartrending too weak!! All that keeps one from dissolving in tears is awe over the way you have expressed the inexpressible. Age has robbed one of our beloved dogs of mobility and continence, but she is not in pain and still has a good appetite, and I love to baby her, bless her heart. Thank you for showing me the way to this. . .I have run out of words {me!!}, I fear. May good memories ease your pain. . in time. Love, Phyllis

Cry Not (Poetry) - 7/18/2008 9:26:25 AM
I think that everyone can relate to this poem, and we have all been hurt in the past. I love your choice of words in this poems, especially when you wrote, "Cry not for selfish feelings,when a loving one you find. Cry not your heart is healing, leaving hurt of love behind." Yet, your poem has brought me a light of hope. Your words are very comforting in this poem. Stop into my den when you have a chance, and let me know what you think of my work.
