The Monster: By My son, Drewan Carter (Short Story) - 1/19/2009 5:17:15 AM|
Tabitha, you have every right to be proud. For a ten year old to string that many words together while containing and following through with a basic plot is a great accomplishment. Sounds like Drewan might follow in his mother's footsteps. Thanks for sharing.

The Monster: By My son, Drewan Carter (Short Story) - 1/17/2009 11:09:59 AM
This was a delightful story. You are better speller than some of us were at your age. I compliment you on such an imaginative story. You should be proud.
The fact that your character felt responsible for the teacher's well-being, shows a mature mind, and the ability to think in terms of a larger world. In applying a theme of danger to the story with your monster, which was very imaginative and well done, you showed how you can help another by not ignoring a problem, and that there can be good consequences to your actions.
Thank you for sharing, "The Monster," with us.
You are a good storyteller. Keep writing, and the future will be yours.

I love the revelation of what we writers always feel but never take the time to share.
Provocative and innovative.
Good job, Tabitha!
Just For Me (Poetry) - 7/24/2009 3:21:05 PM

When your words flow so effortlessly rich in feelings than how could you be nought else but a poet. I sense a self reflection of your poetential as a writer Tab in the last few works you have done but this one ends on a positive note and I am glad. You are young and have a lifetime of words within you to share with the world...keep the ink on the paper.

A Time in My Life (Poetry) - 4/21/2009 3:24:09 PM
"Plug in the amp, for I'm about to speak,I have a history to shout,
and a conscience to leak." Go for it, girl! Thank God for our liberty of free speech. I remember a time when I had lost my voice--but once I got it back I began to sing. I sing in verse and melodic rhyme the truths I dared not speak "back then," in the dark days of my life.

SOoo TRUE!!! - I learned this well! - well, child....
I am here....and you are learning "strength".
I give to you the "fight", the ability to "seek reason", to take your childhood and use it to guide. ---> This is what I learned and prayed to do with his guidance and my faith and bad experience!
I can so relate to your expressions and verses HERE Tab, very well written and the flowwww is PERFECT, to me!
God has been BLESSING YOU Tab! Thank you for Blessing us with this "TRUTH" poem I know all too well, including the hiding behind their bedroom door!etc.

Strength he gives then and Faith and Words he gives us NOW!

Hmnnn good thing you added picture or everyone would have figured you were talking about, just kidding. Great tribute to the one you love.
Stars Shattered You Blind (Poetry) - 3/21/2009 4:44:58 PM
This is an amazing writing here, of which many points I related to totally. That is the mark of good writer, when many think it is about them that is written. I believe it. Great, mighty in scope and power. Many mysteries you speak of here. Answers deserving of your questions are in this very room. We shadows come and go, but sometimes leave footprints in time that can't be erased. This writing speaks of Time, Space and Feelings. Sometimes when animals, wizards, and white rabbits are wounded they prepare to die and forget to say the goodbyes. Then when they unexpectedly recover life is never the same again.
Stars Shattered You Blind (Poetry) - 3/21/2009 11:28:20 AM
YIkes, haven't been here in awhile, Tabitha, such intensity in this poem!
love the imagery you have chosen my friend!
This stuns the soul once again!
As I always say Sweetie, FOLLOW YOUR HEART, that is the right way, and only way...
Love the bluntness in all, I follow that same strength of level...As your writing ranting, continues!

You elicit much thought and reflection with you verses, Tabitha. Thank you for sharing. Love and best wishes,
Stars Shattered You Blind (Poetry) - 3/20/2009 5:25:20 AM
do it your way Tabitha -- life is too short to constantly walk the long way around and appease - in the final analysis, it never accomplishes what you wanted --go and, "do it your way" -- peace and love-- JMW
Stars Shattered You Blind (Poetry) - 3/19/2009 3:30:06 PM
Sometimes it is better to live your life the way YOU want, especially when it makes you smile and feel good, very deeply descriptive piece always with the thread of love running through...

Quite a thought provoking journey here. Write on. Liz
Stars Shattered You Blind (Poetry) - 3/19/2009 8:46:58 AM
Maybe this is a little bit harsh. I had no idea that there are attackers going around right now. Sounds like Im one of them with this poem. No, really....I am confused and I hope it shows through with these words. I love everyone here on AD and maybe I tend to overwelcome myself to be so blunt and forget sensitivity exists and pours blood.
Stars Shattered You Blind (Poetry) - 3/19/2009 8:08:11 AM
This is a stunning Lewis Carrolian type reference to someone you must love very much that hurt you. Your pain is evident in your verses. Who is this wizard of which you speak. A dear friend to be sure. Excellent imagery throughout. You write with the tongue of Byron himself.
My Ever More (Poetry) - 2/15/2009 10:38:34 PM

this,is love -- so passionately painted -- "he's my silk when I'm ragged and worn" -- a line so expressive of love and joy -- much peace and love to you Tabitha -- JMW
My Ever More (Poetry) - 2/8/2009 5:51:42 PM
Loving it. You got me believing it. I am jealous of who ever you had in mind when you wrote that. All you women takes notes, this how you appreciate a man, in verse at least!
My Ever More (Poetry) - 2/2/2009 10:12:11 AM
You have such a gentle way with words... soft and wispy. I really love reading your creations. I've read quite a few - it's always nice to visit you here.
Rain (Poetry) - 2/1/2009 9:18:51 PM
My Ever More (Poetry) - 2/1/2009 3:12:50 AM
Tab as always your big heart and the love you have for your man glow with each word, line and verse. This tells of how love is meant to be and how few people have a love like this. Very nicely done
PS On another note as to the bad book review, when I published my first book I had one bad review as well but the way I looked at it was that for him to take the time to read it all the way through and to make the effort to review it must have at least kept him interested. lol

You really do shine out as a true friend in this meaningful and moving write, Tabitha. Love and best wishes to you,
Whisper For Time (Poetry) - 1/9/2009 1:57:05 AM
Your compassion and caring flows through this one and Tab your friend is lucky to have one such as you close by to comfort her. When I lost both parents in the space of a year I was alone even though I had family I was not close at the time to anyone. Time does heal or at least dulls the pain and leaves the good memories AND yes as you suggest they are always within our hearts.
Whisper For Time (Poetry) - 1/8/2009 7:52:31 PM
How deeply moving and profound is this poem. I can relate to "lost time" and I'm about to lose a brother to cancer, it is like trying to hold sand firmly in the palm of my hand, the tighter I hold it - the faster it slips away from my fingers.
Whisper For Time (Poetry) - 1/8/2009 6:59:58 PM
"So much more to give"...Well, you said it. That is the right attitude to succeed in life and overcome any setback, including death. Thanks, Tabitha. Loved the pic. You are a good friend to write and post this for your hurting friend. Very good!

Oh, dear Tabitha, this is creative! I like to write like this as well. So, I'll try to post those and see what you think. You have opened a huge door for me to walk through and I thank you. It would have taken so much longer to do this on my own. What an angel you are.
In Spirit and Westerns (Poetry) - 12/30/2008 9:29:05 PM
This is a real snapshot you have written, handing us a photo of your grandfather that stays even longer, and this is well-written to boot. Happy New Year :) Michelle

money is not the root of all evil -- the greed within mankind is the villain -- money is merely symbolic of that greed -- may peace and love be always with you -- JMW

This passage of time and memory of it is a mystery.
I have often reflected upon this theme as a scientist. Thanks for bringing all of this back again. Well done.

the rain fell down like stars
the vastland was a playground
and no one drove a car."

"Cardy to Basia". Are these your literary characters? I am at a loss. Tell me what I need to know to get up on the learning curve here, to understand your meaning. Your sentences are lovely, but the sentiment is lost on me. Perhaps, because I am meant to be only a voyeur to your love letter in verse. Rockie Coppolella
Letters Full of Broken Words (Poetry) - 10/16/2008 1:16:56 PM
It is sad when love turns to just so many words to the one we want so badly to understand. I know what this feels like, I have been there myself a time or two.
A Moment's Glitter (Poetry) - 10/16/2008 1:13:26 PM
Another lovely gem, reflection back on our youth and innoncense gets so much easier the older we get.

Journey from Hell (Poetry) - 10/14/2008 2:46:00 PM
to ponder the losses to society of potential scientists, physicians, engineers, great parents, et al, from these addictions is to sense great sadness -- to sense the loss of anyone, regardless of whether they would have only aspired to the most menial of tasks, is a loss we cannot afford to suffer -- this is a societal problem in that we let the desire of some to make money from any source to prey upon our citizens -- a great awakening and recommitment write -- thanks -- JMW
Spoonfuls of Peanut Butter (Poetry) - 10/13/2008 12:20:34 PM
When the last child leaves the nest, how empty one feels inside. All you are left with are the memories that still dwell within the rooms, heartfully stated. One of the reasons why we all end up adopting pets, right?

Very nicely done tab, I have often when in pain either physical or emotional picked up my old guitar and beat one song out after another that reflected my feelings...it does help most times.
The Chord of Rain (Poetry) - 10/12/2008 4:01:21 PM
Great longings and pain is written into this song.

The Chord of Rain (Poetry) - 10/12/2008 3:43:34 PM
Highly emotional and passionate--the kind of stuff that makes a hit song or a classic poem.
Journey from Hell (Poetry) - 10/9/2008 4:43:07 PM
This theme that you "deal" with is sadly a scourge of our society. Thank you, Tabitha. Love and best wishes,
Journey from Hell (Poetry) - 10/9/2008 2:35:24 PM
Some can weather the storm of breaking free from drugs but you have to have something that makes you want to change. Great poem and how drugs take over your thinking process.
Journey from Hell (Poetry) - 10/9/2008 1:04:46 PM
Well written, well delivered piece, reaching out to all those lost souls who believe there is no other road to travel, yet there is. Sometimes with a little help they can see....
Be always safe,
Journey from Hell (Poetry) - 10/9/2008 12:53:05 PM
You certainly took us for a mind trip through the soul of one suffering from life's bitter dissappointments. It is a sad fact that most people until they arrive there do not know how thin the line is between having a life and losing everything. I teetered on that line once so I do know and will always emphazize with this growing problem.
Journey from Hell (Poetry) - 10/9/2008 11:40:06 AM
Painful...torturous...journey...captured in the skill
of your powerful writing, Tabitha. What sadness, what horror,
to think that for too many there's no way out. -gene.
Journey from Hell (Poetry) - 10/9/2008 11:22:50 AM

Truity in Life (Poetry) - 10/9/2008 6:21:00 AM
There are those that love to party for partying sake and there are those who party for a need to be met. Then there are others who like to party once in a while, that is alright but excessive of anything is no good. Each of us had our own fun at parties in the past but we have to screen our lives and live according to our ability to see the good in everyone. You see the good in your sister and were very helpful to her with this write. Two beautiful girls who are family.
Temple of Peace (Poetry) - 10/9/2008 6:18:07 AM

Sunshine (Poetry) - 10/9/2008 6:17:01 AM
You did have that nice and neat vacation. I'd give anything to vacation in Florida for a while. Maybe someday I don't know. Meanwhile you did soak up the rays of sunshine and passed some of them onto us through this magnificent writie about the vacation in Florida you had.
Proper Pride (Poetry) - 10/9/2008 6:15:06 AM

I feel those angels guiding me along life's pathways too. Super write.
May I Dream? (Poetry) - 10/9/2008 6:07:42 AM
We do have such dreams. I know I dream of the ocean constantly, as it is my thing. Whatever you dream try to analyze them and see what them mean. Catching up with the waves means you are going to go far in life.
Blinded By Your Light (Poetry) - 10/9/2008 3:45:38 AM
Your heart said it all...from beginning to end...especially like this.I do not read lines that age on a face, the wisdom, the stories, the wrinkles that fall into place. I cannot see stone, or rock, or heavy waterfall lips, for it is a smile that make them erase.
No matter the feeble, the weak, the poor makeshift rags, the cover, the book, the streetsmart lad....Great write. Love, Bonnie
May I Dream? (Poetry) - 10/8/2008 4:23:12 PM
It would be wonderful if our dreams could come true.
Little Hands (Poetry) - 10/7/2008 2:56:45 PM

Daddy and Daughter (Poetry) - 10/6/2008 5:50:46 PM
Wouldn't it be grand if every lovely daughter could feel the love this "mean" giant has for his child.... sweet write... lindalaw
Daddy and Daughter (Poetry) - 10/6/2008 5:27:14 PM
You are so right on with this one, when as a young man I would stand up to the biggest man in the bar take more punches than a body should but never flinch or cry out but if my daughter was upset tears would fell my eyes like rain.
Little Hands (Poetry) - 10/5/2008 3:58:49 PM
children, give them the way to explore -- a journey of the mind, at finger's tips -- now there, is a day -- I thoroughly enjoyed this one Tabitha -- JMW
Sleep Aid (Poetry) - 10/5/2008 3:23:07 PM
as one who has suffered from insomnia to one degree or another for my entire life -- I have never taken sleeping pills -- the thought of reliance upon them was never appealing to me -- rest and slumber come when and if they will -- peace dear lady -- JMW
Little Hands (Poetry) - 10/4/2008 6:49:47 AM
Very sweet writing sweet lady...Hugss
Little Hands (Poetry) - 10/2/2008 3:09:35 PM
So sweet is this loveable tale and the joy of children to bless each home....

Sleep Aid (Poetry) - 10/2/2008 11:44:43 AM
I've never taken sleeping pills but I have been on medication at one time or another and I believe that all "foreing substances" including alcohol impede the ability to remember one's dreams. Thank you, Tabitha. Love and best wishes,
Little Hands (Poetry) - 10/2/2008 11:43:21 AM
There is nothing quite mischievous as a curious child on the prowl.
Nothing except maybe a young kitten !
Little Hands (Poetry) - 10/2/2008 11:39:58 AM
Yes, Tabitha. Children are full of wonder and little boys tend to be a bit more "reckless" in their explorations than little girls. Thank you. Love and best wishes,
Little Hands (Poetry) - 10/2/2008 7:38:06 AM
Yep as the grandfather of a little guy just going into the terrible twos and all boy I know exactly what this write is about. lol
Little Hands (Poetry) - 10/2/2008 7:13:44 AM
A beautiful tribute to babies and Moms everywhere! Their souls are so pure, even when they are a little mischeivous. Been there, done that. Glad it's over with!
Sleep Aid (Poetry) - 10/2/2008 5:56:49 AM
Tab...this reminded me of how two years ago I lost SEVEN WEEKS of memory when my doc gave me AMBIEN after surgery...I was a mess for weeks...almost bedridden and thought I was dying... thankfully...we found out that the sleeping aid Ambien and the nausea pill combined had robbed me of seven weeks of my life! Needless to say...I don't take ANYTHING anymore...even when I should.... lindalaw
Sleep Aid (Poetry) - 10/2/2008 4:47:52 AM
I enjoyed this one and it got me to pondering, I have never used sleeping pills either although I ofen suffer from insominia and even in hospital I preferred to toss and turn or read than taking the little white pill the nurses held out in those little plastic cups. I think for me after reading this poem...the fear I have is that with so many other things that can go wrong with me...I am afraid if I take a sleeping pill I may not wake up at all. lol
Sleep Aid (Poetry) - 10/2/2008 4:13:48 AM
Good thought-provoking piece!!!
Sleeping pills can be very addictive. I've never liked them. People shouldn't have to depend upon them to go to sleep.

St. Louis (Poetry) - 9/30/2008 8:36:35 AM
Love it. I'm a born and bred Missourian. Don't know why I stay but I guess there just isn't any where else to go. Your poem is truly excellent in catching the flavor of St. Louis. But I think your schools are b etter than the KC ones. It's a toss up. Excellent write. Liz
St. Louis (Poetry) - 9/30/2008 2:19:44 AM
Ahhhh but they have you there Tab so it can't be all bad.
St. Louis (Poetry) - 9/30/2008 12:25:15 AM

Truity in Life (Poetry) - 9/28/2008 10:48:34 AM
Would that all "partiers" would listen to your advice, Tabitha. I did some foolish things when I partied. It would be great if others would avoid the same mistakes. Thank you. Love and blessings to you,

Rabbit Hole (Poetry) - 9/24/2008 2:25:47 PM
Rabbits know no holes only homes...
A hole is an opening in the firmament, perhaps that us what you seek...
My Chest is on Fire (Poetry) - 9/24/2008 12:06:14 PM
Although I have never smoked, I know a lot of people who did and many who still do. I think you express the "ugliness" and pain of withdrawal very effectively, Tabitha. Love and best wishes,
Rabbit Hole (Poetry) - 9/24/2008 12:04:38 PM
Sometimes my "rabbit hole" is sleep... ...until dreams "awaken" me. I can relate to the sentiments that you express within your verses, Tabitha. Love and best wishes,

Eruption (Poetry) - 9/24/2008 11:41:36 AM
Saucy and hot this write creates great images of angry outbursts...but don't we all feel like that at times.
Rabbit Hole (Poetry) - 9/24/2008 11:40:22 AM
Although I hear an echo of sadness coming from that rabbit hole, I also feel that there is a sense that like the soft cuddly bunny the subject of your write needs someone to just stroke your heart to make you smile again.
She Hung the Moon, Too Soon (Poetry) - 9/24/2008 6:05:37 AM
What a beautiful poem about youth and its vulnerability.

This is the stuff that makes writing transcendent...the translation of pathos and longing into a symphony of literature.
Well done, even if you don't think so
