Porches (Short Story) - 12/30/2008 9:16:16 PM|
I enjoyed reading "Porches". It was an easy read that takes me back through the years. Back to a time, when as children, my family would gather on the front porch to watch for my father's car to pull up. We counted the cars as they sped past our busy one way street in north Denver. Thanks for the memories. Kent Richards.

While Super Hero Men Sleep (Short Story) - 5/23/2008 6:11:29 PM
Nothing is sweeter than watching your children sleep...
I love how you added the asides...they add much to your story. I also truly appreciate how you try to see things through their eyes. It is so much easier sometimes to take the adult approach...Kudos to you for not...

Sounds like a "blues" song from the South, with guitar and harmonica background. Partly true, but changes come from each of us and we live our lives by the choices we make, regardless of who's in the government or in the church. Very crafty poem here.
The Sword That Seeks (Poetry) - 12/14/2008 7:37:48 AM
A poem so strongly vivid of the battles between Darkness (evil) and Light (good)...the Sword (judgement) comes seeking. The final line "And God, is...isn't He?" declares the Omnipotent existence of
Him Who reigns over all. Very creative and encompassing.
Willis's Song (Poetry) - 12/14/2008 7:31:00 AM
The transition of emotions through the lines are deeply moving.
Beautiful and very nicely written.

You didn't did you, it wasn't you was it? Bless you for sharing, it's beautiful and sentimental. Jasmin Horst

An ontologic artistic compůsition... "A Child's Tears" reveals the the social and soul's searching in its poemization. A poetic feast in philosophic table.

No he is not, when he comes to bring justice, it will not be steeped in patriots blood, the sword he yields, nor in human rightessnous but his own, for only he knows who is wicked and who is not. A beautiful stirring, and metaphorical poem, enjoyed it much!
Blessings! Jasmin Horst
The Red, Red Rose and Death (Poetry) - 7/15/2008 6:50:51 PM
He has left a life long mark on your life and he is smiling on you from heaven. A great tribute to a man amongst men. And yes I can remember my first sons birthday and I bought him an erector set and of course it really was for me.

I really do think I have kept that little child inside me so far and always will. Am 63 but not really that all grown up. Act so childishly sometimes and find the inner me. To be young and free again is not to be for me but I can look at photos and find the natural younger me. Weightless too even then. All in all I am still me.

What will be will be, Nothin changes fast and we have to endure for a while what is meant to be.
The Graves We Dig (Poetry) - 6/4/2008 8:41:22 AM
Buried, now laid at rest, hard to let them go, but it must be so.
Visit hubby's grave mostly each day, wish to be with him in that grave. I know how lonely I get each day, but have to live on til the grave accepts me as dead. When will that day come?
The Graves We Dig (Poetry) - 5/30/2008 7:06:06 PM
How painful this poem is, but how much truth is in these words. So many soldiers, their lives snuffed out way to soon. Amazing imagery here.
A Child's Tears (Poetry) - 5/30/2008 7:02:24 PM
Excellent poetry, A magical tale of what used to be, I feel most of us are still searching for that 'little' child still inside all of us. Some are fortunate enough to find it.:)
A Child's Tears (Poetry) - 5/27/2008 5:40:54 PM
Such a beautiful and imaginative way to bring the past through to the present and then, for a little while, back to life...
Be always safe,

Charming very charming words you pen this day. I had a similar experience just last night escaping into dreams to meet up with the little girl long since gone who lived such a carefree life. Well Done. Deborah

Wow! Really nice. The words took me to another place as if it was me searching for something! Really Nice!
