Wonderful write Kay...I love it. Presented with a childlike quality but just a tease of adult humour there as well with the use of her bra as the objection of the rooms attention. So good to see one of your writes up again.

I think you will dive in again, and again, you will do what you believe to be right and best for everyone, if you could save all six ships you would do so, I have no doubt of that, it's the way you are, built into your genes, you will always do the right thing, you wouldn't know how to do anything else, it's part of what makes you the very special person that you are.

Are we doomed? (Article) - 3/23/2011 4:44:04 AM
The entire world seems to be such a sad place these days with Mother Nature on such a terrible rampage, and with our ever increasing human population now destroying so much of what Mother Nature had so gladly given us. I fear the world we're leaving to future generations will look nothing like the wondrous natural world that I knew as a child.

Are we doomed? (Article) - 3/22/2011 4:13:42 PM
I share your heartbreak because of what Mother Nature has given the world. Except for Chernobyl hardly any people have died because of nuclear meltdown. It is far more dangerous to get in your car and drive to the store than a nuclear accident killing you.

Skeletons in a closet. (Poetry) - 10/23/2014 4:16:49 AM
Your heart has penned to page an all too true reality of how life really is. The world and those around us would have us believe that only an unfortunate few, this one here or that one there, has done or experienced things in their past that they would much rather never think about or remember again. Fact is, if you dig deep enough, all people have a skeleton or two buried or hidden in a closet somewhere. It is a sad characteristic of humanity to desire to reveal and uncover the skeletons of others, rather than our own.
To me this poem speaks of acceptance; others accepting us just as we are today. We cannot live our lives in the past, and there can be no relationship, romance, love, etc., without acceptance of who we are today and leaving skeletons where they lie. Better yet, to forget skeletons ever were ... Excellent and touching message that truly spoke to my heart ...

I don't remember this one, but I should. Perhaps that's why I remember your poetry touched me in the past. This poem is a tour de force about the hypocrisy of the wealthy in this world who look down upon the very world they created by raping and pillaging and calling it making use of natural resources. Humans are humans and they are not resources to be consumed. As soon as we learn that, the world would be a much better place. Thanks for sharing this with us once again.

Can anyone tell me which one is 'wrong'? (Poetry) - 3/14/2013 6:35:17 AM
Our gun laws in the U.S. are antiquated and there needs to be tighter control and accessibility to weapons and the kind of weapons that are available to the public...but I am afraid that genie is out of the bottle and there are so many guns out there that can be had, stolen or bought on the black market to satisfy the criminal element. The gun lobby and the NRA are way too strong and this lobby as well as most lobbies should be banned from having access to our legislators or from putting their own interests ahead of the rights of victims of gun violence. It is too easy to kill when a gun is available and it is too easy to fall into the hands of the insane, mentally unstable or criminal bent on inflicting harm on others. There is never a valid reason to own weapons designed to kill more people within a short span of time. The statistics indicate that more deaths are due to attack with guns rather than saved in defense, so that argument is unsupported.
I am afraid it may be too late to save ourselves by making new laws on gun control as the criminal element will always be with us to obey any laws in regards to the use of guns or possession of them. There is no easy answer.

Human Monsters! (Poetry) - 3/9/2013 4:41:41 AM
All those folks mean well. You can tell them all to go to *.#$%$!
But that will not cure the hurt and the pain deep inside that remains.
I lost a wife to cancer one day.
Her folks abandoned her the last years of her life.
They just did not want to face it, so they all went away.
Then when she was lying on her death bed,
they changed the last minute and decided to show up instead!
I was not amused by all of this,
so I let them have ALL of my mind,
man was I pissed.
In the end I was cut off from a family full of fakes
But I was wounded so badly and wondered If I made a mistake!
You see if you focus on what hurts it will only hurt more.
Then the hurt will grow and fester and mop you all over the floor.
So it's to focus on your future and pick things cup...
is really the BEST revenge so go and fill THAT cup!
It's NOT easy to pick up the pieces and them walk away
But it's the better alternative;
it's the way to a new and better day!

The heart takes us to many places, but when it pertains to a broken heart things go haywire.
Human Monsters! (Poetry) - 3/8/2013 1:33:41 PM
Just a metaphor Ed...for me,milk and cows ...even udders... have always represented good things,even to spill milk would be joy for the seeds under the ground.I don't like it when people use that old saying 'no use crying over spilt milk' especially when one's heart is broken,the old saying undermines one's suffering and paints it as trivial...so,in my poem I wanted to show a different outlook.In this poem my metophor of the milk spilling is really meant to represent one's hopes,dreams and whole future spilling out caused by someone elses broken vow or by another's wrong doings.The female farmer in this poem is metophor for all people who have cared for and tried to protect and treasure relationships,hopes and ideals of themselves and others.Mushroom cloud?= is metaphor for all that's left of one's spirit after a breakup or betrayal.My metophor I hope achieved my aim which was to dismiss the spilling of milk as an innocent event and to paint it as entirely sinister and in the end making the spilt milk (lost hopes,love,good relationships) more worthy of a darn good cry.

Can anyone tell me which one is 'wrong'? (Poetry) - 1/12/2013 11:58:05 AM
Guns are ingrained in the American psyche. Unfortunately, many fear that they will need guns to protect their property, their lives, and to overthrow the government if it becomes abusive. Like religion, the primary purpose for people having guns is fear.
When you look at the other side of the coin. The number of people that commit suicide, murder, and other crimes, simply because a gun is available, and most tragic of all, when young people get a hold of the family gun and accidentally shoot or maim themselves or others. It seems insane that we would allow this to happen. The daily count of death like this is staggering, similar to death on the highways.
The only reason for handgun is to kill a human being. It has no use for hunting because it is too inaccurate. You only reason for automatic, multi-round, guns is to kill more efficiently––humans. These guns were developed for war and to penetrate armor. When I see men at target sites shooting these weapons it makes me wonder what they are thinking.
The tragic multiple killings that we are seeing are almost always a deranged person. We often ignore them, for bully them, in till they reach a breaking point. We need to do much more by way of mental health, especially since we have so many militarily trained young men and women coming back from war with disorders caused by the horror they've seen.
Let us hope that in the future, we can overcome our fear, become more peaceful, and the guns behind is an artifact of earlier centuries when they were needed for protection and to hunt for food.

Can anyone tell me which one is 'wrong'? (Poetry) - 1/12/2013 9:04:52 AM
I think that clearly the laws regarding the purchase of guns and who has them, indeed, must be more stringent. I know that the horrific results following the actions of that young man, who had mental problems, stands out like a sore thumb with regards to a gun getting into the wrong hands. However, I am considering two other episodes which also happened here in the US just recently that maybe you are not familiar with. In both cases these occurrences involved a mother and children. In one case an intruder came into the home of a young widow and her infant son and not content with robbing her house...found and advanced towards her and her son that were hiding and cowering in a corner. She shot him. In the second instance that happened right here in Georgia, where I live, an intruder broke into a house with intent to hurt a mother and her children...she shot him. So then we come down to the bottom line. Do we make all gun ownership unlawful, or just some of them? Kay...we are living in the end times and this is a very dangerous and un-nerving time for all of us. But before I go on, let me make something clear; I do not own a gun, never have owned a gun and never will own one. However, the only reason I don't is because of my faith in God. He is my protection, He is my 'gun'. Anything that happens in my life that He doesn't prevent...is suppose to happen, for my life is in His hands. But as I was saying, these are frightful times that we are living in and many feel that the only protection for them and their families is a gun...for them its something that is 'tangible'. This is because they are not walking by faith, but by sight. So what do we do? Condemn those that are not where we are? Do we refuse to let law abiding, level headed individuals have a well concealed, registered gun in their homes for protection? And what about those sportsmen who hunt during hunting season? Whether we approve of the sport or not...some people tote registered rifles and enjoy this sport. And I don't even want to begin to touch on the amount of firearms that are in our country which got here illegally and cannot be registered. So, Personally I don't feel there is a right or wrong side. I feel both sides have good arguements and I certainly do not feel that we need to begin 'messing around' with our Constitution. Because it would be like opening up a can of worms! Change upon change wouls be made on other parts of this Document, on which the very roots of our Democracy Stands, until we are left with absolutely...nothing! We must not tamper with our Roots! Thus, this is my answer; Until people get more faith in Almight God and see Him as their one and only protection... 'GUN LAWS' IN THE US NEED TO BE IMPROVED AND NEED TO BE STRICKLY ADHERED TO...WITH THE LACK OF ADHERANCE BEING FOLLOWED UP WITH SEVERE AND PUNISHABLE CONSEQUENCES.
By the way; I wrote a poem entitled, Twenty Little Angels, which takes a look at the tragedy that you referred to in an entirely different light...a broader light. For in the end...who is really in charge of life and death? Only God. Thanks for sharing, Kay. Love, Blessings and Faith...Joyce * His Inspirations

Kay, you are right...sometimes these things make no sense, but you did write something that is a possible answer to this horrible mess, and that is to amend the constitution, and I would be in favor of doing something like that to keep guns out of the hands of those that want to wreak havoc on our children. It would be a mammoth undertaking, but I feel it's necessary.

The refugee on my train. (Poetry) - 6/11/2012 11:19:21 PM
Account of a soul in transportation away from perhaps political oppression, or religious persecution. For another human being, the author, to even wonder these things about this refugee shows such human compassion and tenderness for the cerebrally-shaken. This is a very mindful essay on the condition of society. This piece reminds me so much of the "blood diamond" wars in Angola where arms and legs are hacked off by militant leaders. Powerful and taps into the cultural pulse, Kay...be well.

"..for his eyes are distant
and they stare at space..."
i've seen those eyes, Kay, over and over
and no matter how often i see them my heart
is troubled..we just are not doing things right,
we're not..there are too many victims;
powerful and moving work and very real indeed

Outside life's green. (Poetry) - 6/10/2012 8:19:57 PM
Time came be a slow and painfully doctor, but is the healer of great wounds,
And with its greatest medicine named "acceptance" we are able to survive with only
but a scar left inside our hearts, and the wisdom of life inside our souls.
Great piece here PM. ;-)
love and peace forever
Freedom (Poetry) - 6/10/2012 8:07:42 PM
Ahhh, Hi PMD, I wrote my first poem only 6 years ago, and I am compelled to say;
"Freedom" conveys exactly the same message as what I had first written in "Who's in the mirror."
I gravitate to this type of thinking and look forward to reading more of your work.
Love and Peace forever
The refugee on my train. (Poetry) - 6/10/2012 1:10:33 PM
This is very beautiful and touching. Sometimes it takes a generation for the healing to happen. Your country is indeed generous to allow refugees. Unfortunately, many refugees can never go back and have them make their sheltering country their home.

First of all, excellent poem ... secondly, i wonder if the country that attmepts to save us all, will ease any of our minds?

I agree with Felix, prejudicial or not.
Your poem was masterful.
The refugee on my train. (Poetry) - 6/10/2012 2:53:15 AM
Wow! Great poetic expression! This is the cry for someone who is lost, hurt and blind to the beauty that is in this moment in time. If you watched the movie, "The Peaceful Warrior" it portrays the importance of being in the moment. It's not always easy to focus on when your mind is preoccupied with other stuff but it's worth a try.
The refugee on my train. (Poetry) - 6/10/2012 2:40:37 AM
You expressed yourself so well here Kay that yes I could see the mans emotions as if looking at him myself. It is also very real for when you think about it weren't our descendents all refuges at one point or another. The sad part is so many of the refuges and immigrants today refuse to embrace our society, morals, values and language and instead insist the majority transform or bend our own ways to accomadate theirs. Hope I don't sound prejudicial here but that is my observation. Great writing Kay.

I can't believe it USA! (Poetry) - 1/11/2012 4:28:12 PM
I've always has the greatest of respect for the US Postal Service. I still do. They are suffering greatly due to the lack of funds provided by first class postage which now is courriered by the internet. People moan about the USPS but when it is privatized look out! I think if they raised the rate on junk mail they'd solve two problem, get rid of a bunch of it, and gain some revenue. Patrick

I can't believe it USA! (Poetry) - 1/9/2012 8:11:35 PM
Nice work Kay! If you ever went to Japan or some places in Europe the small shops are everywhere. It makes life fun and interesting. Somehow they manage to have big stores without destroying the small shops. Somehow it works because the goverment stays out of their business. If you don't tax the small guys out of business they can still be competitive. Amen!
I can't believe it USA! (Poetry) - 1/9/2012 3:54:50 PM
OUR GOVERNMENT RUNS OUR POST OFFICE. OUR GOVERNMENT CAN'T RUN ANYTHING RIGHT. OUR GOVERNMENT WASTE SO MUCH MONEY IT IS A CRIME.
IF IT WASN'T FOR OUR TAXES THE US GOVERNMENT COULD NOT BE THE CROOKS THAT THEY ARE.
SO, ANYTHING OUR GOVERNMENT HAS IT'S HANDS ON WINDS UP BANKRUPT.
SMoooooooooooooooooooooOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOCH! LOVE YA KAY.
I can't believe it USA! (Poetry) - 1/9/2012 10:56:02 AM
I recently saw the old movie, the postman, and it seemed rather strange. My brother's fiancé is a post mistress and recently changed her status to “carrier” so that she will not be cut.
Based on my sister and others in this country who want government out of our business, the post office is part of the creeping socialism taking over the country–isn't that strange?
Thanks for feeling bad about our country. We'll muddle through just fine, just like the old UK.
I can't believe it USA! (Poetry) - 1/9/2012 9:08:38 AM
unfortunately Kay, the small post offices are a thing of the past ... believe me, i know ... the landscape of our country is rapidly shifting and mot all for the better ...
soulfully penned ... nice work!
I can't believe it USA! (Poetry) - 1/9/2012 6:38:42 AM
I totally agree, Kay! I'm much more into the small shops than the malls....the personal touch is wonderful....as for the postal service...I LOVE getting mail! Especially hand written letters.
I can't believe it USA! (Poetry) - 1/9/2012 2:26:20 AM
Oh, this is but one chink in the downgrading of America, Kay. I have lived long enough to know that this America of today isn't a pimple on what she used to be. What is most tragic if the blase way the American public is handling the drastic change. I blame the indoctrination of the school system that we are, first and foremost a bad country. It all stems from there.

Too slow. (Poetry) - 11/9/2011 6:40:12 AM
I like the way you think! A down-to-earth poem about preferring the slow pace of life instead of the crazy fast lane most people live in. I agree wholeheartedly! The lyrical flow of your poem lulls one into accepting the slowness of the tortoise as opposed to the rapid beat of the hare.

Alexandra may now be 20 and fully-fledged, but, after reading this, she's also a worthy testament to the beauty and shaping nurture of her mother as well as to her own intrinsic light. From this we can see that you are both indeed paragons among women. A joy to share and behold, thank you, Kay! xx

How beautiful! The mother-daughter bond can be so deep and wonderful.
When I think about the love of my children and grandchildren, it amazes me. I find it hard to understand what makes THEM love ME so much. Some of your lines close to the end echo that feeling.
But God has "invented" this marvelous bond, and like you, I can only revel in it!
Happy 20TH Alexandra (photo at 4 years!) (Poetry) - 10/18/2011 5:14:54 AM

I join you in wishing for that, too, Kay,

in the systems we promote and hold onto
and haven't the will or courage to change.

Love the message here, Kay....freedom belongs to ALL of us! If I lived in a country where oppression reigned...I would be a refugee too....and if I was drowning on the shores of freedom and reached up for a helping hand...I'd pray for a kind soul to lift me up!

I think that the true meaning of Christianity (although I am not a Religious person) becomes lost when it comes to such things or perhaps peoples souls and hearts tend to look away. On the same token the policies of allowing other cultures freedoms dominate our own values and cultures may also play a factor.

Since you reviewed my poem I thought I would reciprocate. I was truly impressed by the content and the selection of words in this poem. It was so much more than truth, beauty and the American way that most poets gravitate to. It could really feel what you said. The words kept my attention all the way through to the surprise ending. The reawakening of a lost soul. A wonderfully crafted piece of work!

I can relate to this one for it is all too easy when we are striving to just keep our heads above water to tie in all the negativity of our past and lose sight of what once made us smile in our hearts...but still if we seek we shall find. Glad you found you Kay.

i'm happy, Kay, you posted this under
Mainstream because it certainly is a work
this reader, for one at least, can wholeheartedly
identify with, it speaks to me in the clearest,
most personal way..and it challenges and it hurts
a little...as it should.

So much thought and heart in this poem. I was entranced with it as it progressed. It is so real and down-to-earth, and the ending is spectacular!

They went, they fought, they didn't question,
they were brave and true...and some came home alive...some.
This is fine tribute, Kay, fine indeed.
ps: hacking is always horrible,
you have my support and sympathy

As a son of one of those brave soldiers who fought in WWII and also the author of a book of his life and my mother's during that war...this write hit home and with a deep regret that he died before I truly understood the sacrifice that he and so many like him made. Great job here Kay...

It really does feel like we have been violated this way or by a virus that comes to us under a friends name...and we know they had no way of knowing...
