Recent Reviews for Huda Orfali

Fisher Prince (Book) - 5/12/2006 2:16:17 PM
Huda Your champion of all champions has entered the arena...:) This is a dazzling creation from your imaginative mind and heart of gold... Love and Peace Peter

Fisher Prince (Book) - 5/7/2006 1:19:50 PM
"Fisher Prince", a mythological tale with real analogy from our time, state corruption and reign of terror. Your call for peace and new order is revolutionary Congratulations on your book and well done, prophet Mick

Fisher Prince (Book) - 4/30/2006 2:33:46 PM
Congratulations on your book. I wish you much success, Huda. Love and peace to you, Regis

Blue Fire (Book) - 8/7/2005 7:01:48 PM
Huda Orfali empowers us with a purer vision of our humanity at a time when violence, apathy, and corruption threaten to devour it leaves behind the gray ashes of a world is an impressive achievement.

Flower in The Cold (Book) - 8/7/2005 7:00:48 PM
Huda Orfali leaves the door half-open for more heros to sneak through, to give us a wake-up call, and to incite the invincible human power which should be placed at the service of humanity.

Blue Fire (Book) - 7/15/2005 9:34:57 AM
Very interesting book. The character Marc is certainly much needed in our day to day life. He brings hope to the most helpless situation and lie where death reigns. Well done

Flower in The Cold (Book) - 7/15/2005 9:30:10 AM
Very evocative themes are disscussed in this book uch as euthanasia and child abuse. The writer has a strong command on the written word and brings up those subjects for us to ponder. My favorite is Swan Lake when a doctor has to make a choice between his ethics and his own life. Well done, Huda

Flower in The Cold (Book) - 2/10/2005 7:32:52 PM
This is a very powerful and emotional book as well as your first one, Blue Fire. You're extremely talented and courageous, well done

Flower in The Cold (Book) - 2/2/2005 12:30:32 AM
I so know you are good, Huda. Love and peace to you. Regis

Heart of Ghost - Script  (Short Story) - 7/7/2011 2:38:29 AM
it's an interesting story but somewhere in the end it missed the amusement

Heart of Ghost - Script  (Short Story) - 11/28/2008 6:20:43 AM
Very interesting. The prominent roles of dialogue in your stories, of course, suggests and is conducive to dramatisation. This is a very successful example. Compliments also are due to Teo Graca. The dramatic elements work very well.

The Vampire and The Stableboy (Short Story) - 6/18/2007 11:39:55 AM
You had me hooked all the way!! Well written!! Love Tinka

Euthanasia! (Short Story) - 6/18/2007 9:17:35 AM
Thank you for sharing this story, Huda. It makes the reader think about life and it's "curves." My very best wishes to you, Regis

Euthanasia! (Short Story) - 6/16/2007 8:20:43 AM
Harrowing story, Huda; very well penned! (((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :(

The Vampire and The Stableboy (Short Story) - 6/15/2007 3:31:39 PM
bravo a masterpeice of vampire fiction if i do say so myself. i am one who loves to read anything about vampires and i havent visited this sight in i dont know how long but when i saw the title of your story i had to read it. loved it as good as the many writers who have got hole novels and stuff of vampire fiction iv read. i loved loved loved it. keep it up your a pro at this. brovo

The Vampire and The Stableboy (Short Story) - 6/1/2007 12:11:28 PM
The Stableboy teems with cruelty, poverty, sexual abuse and parental neglect, which are all detached from the elements of time and place. The reader is encouraged to make a journey into the past that collaborates with the present and the future in producing a calamitous picture of humanity that sometimes stoops to the rank of animals. Vampires are by no means imaginary; they live among us, tarnish our souls and smear with black ink our white jasmines. This particular story leaves the reader feeling that anybody who assassinates an innocent bud in an innocent heart is a vampire. Thanks for sharing this eye-opener God bless - Mich

The Vampire and The Stableboy (Short Story) - 5/31/2007 11:11:17 AM
I'm not a big fan of horror but you have done a fine job of this story, Huda. I was "hooked" from start to finish. Thank you for sharing it. Love and peace to you, Regis

Cabbie (Short Story) - 10/26/2006 3:06:48 PM
You have tackled the subject of the right to die in three masterpieces so far (Deliverance, As I Lay Dying and Cabbie) This is a very emotional subject for me as I was the once who had to fulfil my beloved wife final wish. Huda, I'm wondering will you be ready to enter that pact with me “If one of us ever lingered on life support; the other one would pull the plug.” God bless - Mich

Dancing With The Angels (Short Story) - 7/26/2006 9:32:34 AM
An exceptionally touching piece. Again phenomenal writing.

Cabbie (Short Story) - 7/26/2006 9:31:17 AM
Wonderfully written, your story, or rather the way you wrote it, immediately transports the reader into the middle of the scenes.

Cabbie (Short Story) - 6/23/2006 7:56:42 AM
An interesting technique of narration, transforming "As I lay dying" into short prose. Intense and precise, the intervals are well placed too. Very solid beautiful work.

Dancing With The Angels (Short Story) - 5/23/2006 5:41:04 AM
Huda I would say it was a surreal dream...:) Love and Peace Peter

Heart of Ghost - Script  (Short Story) - 5/20/2006 11:14:46 AM
A great script, Huda! I would make a great movie. Love and peace to you, Regis

Burn (Short Story) - 5/15/2006 4:28:12 PM
Huda Marc is an incredible character, multi faceted and dimensional.... And it is true..." It is He that cures all ills "... There is no such thing as a just war....only the eternal battle between Light and Darkness....Good and Bad.....Right and Wrong... God works in mysterious ways his wonders to perform....and The Supreme Being is the Creator of All... Love, Peace and Harmony Peter

Cabbie (Short Story) - 5/12/2006 3:30:37 PM
I visualized an animated screen play edition of this absorbing and thrilling story in my mind as I read your dramatic narrative...... Your writing skills are exceptional, and your attention to detail is meticulous, the hallmark of a professional writer,Huda.. The character of Marc reminded me of myself...lols.. " “Marc loves everybody,” she said. “I’ve never seen anyone with such capacity for love. " Love and Light Peter

A Rose From Me (Short Story) - 5/12/2006 7:34:03 AM
Huda For my money, Marc is the perfect Anti-Hero, and I wouldn't change or alter a bit of his psyche.. He( you) is perfect in every way.... It's what I call controlled agression and emotional content Love, Peace and Harmony Peter

Silver Eagle (Short Story) - 5/11/2006 7:40:35 AM
Huda You have the incredible ability to gel your stories with consummate ease and skill, and allow your emotional content to permeate throughout your works and labors .. I love your style ! Love, Peace and Harmony Peter

Lynching (Short Story) - 5/7/2006 1:11:03 PM
Wonderful technique of using the image of the feral hog Great sacrifice and a superhuman hero Very well witten You could work that easily into a script as you did with Heart of Ghost God bless Mick

Silver Eagle (Short Story) - 5/7/2006 1:07:02 PM
I remember this special story from your book Blue Fire Wonderful expression of human suffering through the medium of story and poetry. I love the poem I'm glad the hero found his voice God Bless Mick

Silver Eagle (Short Story) - 5/5/2006 10:12:21 AM
A compelling story, Huda. It captures the reader's attention at the start and holds it until the end. Thank you for sharing your gift. Love and peace to you, Regis

Silver Eagle (Short Story) - 5/4/2006 3:02:56 PM

An excellent letter. The soul of the Earth is listening.

Letter to America (Article) - 4/30/2007 12:49:23 PM
It was a pleasure reading this article at the Washngton Post Well done, Huda Wish Bush would listen to your argument God bless - Mich

This release contains a very nice evaluation. Mabruk! Muhammad

Morality is not on our side (Article) - 11/30/2006 7:12:13 AM
It is important to realise this.

Leaving Iraq, Honorably (Article) - 11/30/2006 7:10:10 AM
There is not doubt that withdrawal is an urgent necessity and a disengagement regarding the Middle East as a whole is the dictate of the moment. (It is, of course, more than just that, for there is a general lesson [if I am permitted to use this somewhat informal phrase] in things as they are.) It remains doubtful how much of lost respect the US government may be able to restore at this point in time but it is true that the United States can still extricate itself without causing a major inferno.

Letter to America (Article) - 11/26/2006 8:18:57 PM
Life is precious to all. I don't like it when others expect me to participate in any form of killing. Therefore, I do not vote.

Leaving Iraq, Honorably (Article) - 11/26/2006 8:09:29 PM
Well, I have found the Iraqi people to be an interesting new point of interest in the world. Of course, they are only interested in permanent leadership, being family oriented, whereas the U.S. becomes more and more liberal because of a changing national scene. I simply vote my husband king and leave it at that.

Leaving Iraq, Honorably (Article) - 11/26/2006 10:29:34 AM
This article presents lucid arguments, Huda. Thank you for sharing it. Love and peace to you, Regis

Felix comment sums it up very well, Huda This Professor lays out the problem with no bias and focusses on facts, facts, fact. Hope to hear him speak on CNN or FOX news God bless - Mich

Morality is not on our side (Article) - 7/26/2006 4:04:10 PM
I also have a tenedency to side with this wise professor as he lays out the actual facts of the current situation and the history that has brought it to this state. Fee

Letter to America (Article) - 12/15/2005 5:38:18 AM
A nice analysis which raises a number of key points. I will say that I do not share all your premises as far as the Middle East is concerned but I do absolutely support the basic idea and the tenor of this essay. It has a high analytical value.

Letter to America (Article) - 11/23/2005 12:28:19 PM
I have someone on my list (I published in one of her books) you need to submit this to. Email me at my personal address. The website is and the book is called "Letters to America." Thank you for remembering Ghandi. I love the exhibit of him in the MLK Center for Social Change in Atlanta GA. The longer I live, the more I appreciate life and freedom, but can't understand why others are so bent on shedding blood for selfish ambitions. Much goodness to you, looking forward to your email Sis. Hulda, blessin's, cynth'ya

Conflict Resolution and The War on Terror (Article) - 10/8/2005 9:34:17 AM
This is not only extremely informative, but there is a voice of sanity running through it; you tackle a very troubling issue and make a stand without getting subsumed by emotion. The central tenet is one that I think no intelligent human being could contest: violence will not bring us peace.

Conflict Resolution and The War on Terror (Article) - 9/19/2005 9:00:06 PM
You are being rational in the face of Staussian fascism's iron fist. I wish you success. I fear failure. The Neocons whole agenda rests on the idea of an elite willing to use the power they hold in order to increase their hold on power until they rule the world. We are now hearing in the USA in the aftermath of Katrina the drumbeat call for the military and the private sector to join forces to rebuild. This is a page out of Benito Mussolini's DOCTRINE OF FASCISM (written by Giovanni Gentile). The Neocons are willing to go to the wall, to bring on the Battle of Armageddon to resolve the issue of us versus them ... they are True Believers in the rights of power. For them, an appeal to reason leaves the elite at the mercy of the fickle masses who--in their view--have yet to get it right. Remember what Kipling said about the British versus India, "We have got the Gatling gun, and they have not." Well, the USA has the bomb, and has already demonstrated the will to use it. I would like to be wrong.

Conflict Resolution and The War on Terror (Article) - 9/12/2005 8:56:22 PM
Thank you, Huda. Excellent article. I think how different things might be if the intelligent people were running this country instead of running away from what needs to be done to stop this nonsense.

Vision (Poetry) - 10/24/2007 10:30:18 AM
Well spoken Huda, yet it seems that we all have become watchers and have failed in our role as doer's...blessings

Vision (Poetry) - 10/21/2007 8:18:46 PM
The world is dying; when will this apathetic attitude change? Soon, I pen quite a thought provoker, Huda; well done. (((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

Vision (Poetry) - 10/21/2007 2:07:09 PM
Hi Huda, Your friend from Canada, here (Regis, Reg). As usual for you, you have posted a compelling offering. There is much meaning to your verses and they are worthy of much more than a single reading. I have missed you. Love, peace, and blessings of all that is good, Regis (Reg)

Vision (Poetry) - 10/21/2007 1:45:09 PM
An inspiring piece that stimulates the heart to pump justice, and the mind to think on humanity... "Vision" rings the bells of fairness. In admiration, Andre Emmanuel Bendavi ben-YEHU

Vision (Poetry) - 10/21/2007 1:29:53 PM
sincere heartfelt hunger for justice, in a world where it is barely alive anymore...Good to read you again Huda! You are missed! Love, ET

Vision (Poetry) - 10/21/2007 1:16:00 PM
Freedom indeed. It is rarely won by the gun. Ghandi had it spot on. But get this. I've dropped a bunch of Brit Evangelicals "friends" after hearing them say buddists, etc are doomed to hell...PAH only God has that right, we are all God's creation, and the time is coming where many faiths understand Gods love for his creation and creatures. A rose will share its scent and beauty with every one. Mankind has to learn to drop its culture programming, and see reality. BTW, one complaint... Put you pretty pic back The universe is Gods creation, and no religon has a monopoly on God... Missed yer xxx

Vision (Poetry) - 10/21/2007 1:03:31 PM
You are the shining star, dear Huda Beautiful and expressive write happy Halloween God bless - Mich

The Peacemakers  (Poetry) - 1/25/2007 2:55:36 AM
A rabbi, an Imam and a priest, that's inspirational indeed May the efforts of the peacemakers be blessed, including you. Lance

The Peacemakers  (Poetry) - 11/30/2006 7:18:40 AM
I greatly support putting efforts like these in the spotlight. It is an important message that you express. And may true and profound dialogue be stronger than its obstacles. Muhammad

The Peacemakers  (Poetry) - 10/26/2006 2:40:44 PM
So encouraging, hopeful and inspiring... Amen and Let It Be!! Instead of using faith as a mask, how wonderful when the mask slips and the heart of the man whose sincerity is in the firm foundations of the articles of his faith shine through. What we need is the mind and the matter of the Peacekeeper to teach us the way of true religion based on lived-out faith. I think some would say "Scrap Religion"... but the inner workings of Man is to adhere to that which is Greater than himself and to work a bigger goal... Lasting world peace must be the greatest goal our world has to strive towards. For such Peace will breed security and provision for all. Lovely work, you two. Bless you both. K xx

The Peacemakers  (Poetry) - 10/4/2006 12:37:11 AM

Pope John Paul reached out to his brothers; lessons the current Pope (and all of us) should take. A powerfully penned write, Huda and Peter. (((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

The Peacemakers  (Poetry) - 9/16/2006 6:06:38 AM
A timely piece indeed considering the 'inconsiderate' remarks by the current Pope Pope John Paul II had set a wonderful example for tolerance and religious dialogue God bless him and bless the mufti of Syria Great work prophet of peace

Gates of Hell (Poetry) - 8/17/2006 12:52:17 PM
when weapons for mass mechanised impersonal destruction were invented, the nations, groups and peoples who embraced them as instruments of domination, advantage and conflict resolution had lost the moral and ethical criteria to being 'civilised' and human. The un-noted phenomena is that it is the nations that claim to be most advanced more civilised and protectors of liberty and freedom and humanity are the very ones that have indulged in this highly immoral and and un-ethical use of mechanised impersonal killing as a means of submitting everybody else to achieve a dubious, restless and violent pseudo-peace that can never be secure. The formula of an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth is unethical and immoral. Even more unethical and immoral is the formula practiced by the 'advanced' nations, 1000 eyes for an eye and 1000 Teeth for a tooth. Blithely blind to how barbaric and uncivilised the advanced nations have become in practice towards 'other',they continued to deceive themselves and their own people that they are protecting democracy and freedom and the civilised world! how about a simple formula that the ingenuity and expense consumed by these computerised electronified instruments of mass mechanised impersonal killing should be challenged towards implementing justice in our troubled and suffering world and in strengtheninga truly representative United Nations that concerns itself with the cause of justice in the world and not become an instrument of the most powerful i.e. those who have the most devastating weapons of mass impersonal destruction and are ready to use them! Dear Huda, the photo that summarises all, together with your heartrending poem is something that will shake anybody with any humanity left in them into a new awareness I hope. Thank you for telling all of us about the horrors of mechanised impersonal modernised computerised weapons of unimaginable viciousness. It is a wakeup call for everybody especially in the'civilised'nations that claim to be the protectors of democracy, freedom and justice. Tarek Ali Hassan

Shalom (Poetry) - 8/14/2006 2:56:54 PM
Another very powerful read of the worlds wars and deaths as they build and pile up mans genecide.

King of Terror (Poetry) - 8/14/2006 2:55:59 PM
Rumors and more rumors of wars in the land and changes it all is revelation and I agree with The quote stated!!!!! Ending is harder than the beginning. Well expressed poetry of power.

King of Terror (Poetry) - 8/10/2006 10:38:57 PM
Oh Huda, such a compellingly perceptive write. There are tears aplenty, poetess, if only our world "leaders" would act, and act with vigor to stop the madness... Peace and Blessings, Carolyn

King of Terror (Poetry) - 8/3/2006 8:07:46 PM
the world is mad ...

King of Terror (Poetry) - 8/3/2006 4:35:32 PM
Dear Huda, Your poem and image are a masterpiece of perception transmitting that trigger-happy violence is a very misguided path to peace and security. You tell us how the nations that have invented weapons of mass impersonal killing terror have failed the prerequisite moral and ethical standards of 'civilisation' and have lost the credibility necessary to defend the values they purport to defend and to create the peace with justice that we all dream of because they seem to persist in the belief that 'King Terror' is the way to peace. It makes me very sad to witness how the mass media in the West is flooding innocent citizens of good will with massive misinformation tarek

King of Terror (Poetry) - 8/1/2006 12:54:35 PM
How sad that we have learned nothing from the past. This world is doomed unless we change and soon. But when? There is conflict everywhere. Love and peace to you, Huda my friend. Regis

King of Terror (Poetry) - 8/1/2006 12:02:31 PM
Dear Huda, This subject is so contraversial and the truth seems to be hidden from all sides. But this remains ... All are God's Children. May the gift of Peace fall upon the entire region. Love & Light, Joseph

King of Terror (Poetry) - 7/31/2006 1:57:11 AM
Confusion and powerlessness abound in situations where the global community of individuals feel themselves to be in the hands of the few big and small terrorist governments, seemingly on the face of it democratic or not, who play the games of world power, attack, counter-attack and politics on our behalf. Ask each person, probably, on the face of this earth, whether they want the earth to survive peacefully or no and each would say "Of course; I am the world and I want my children also to live in peace". But, when it comes down to what is ACTUALLY happening in the world of which we all claim to be a part, our earth seems to be in the hands of extremists who will go to any lengths to fight their cause and their corner irrespective of the human cost... whether they appear in boots and bandanas or smart Versace suits and suave eau de cologne. Pursuit of dominance and material greed rather than peace-keeping issues seem to be the swansong we are all dancing to. Perhaps we learnt it from the Romans... I am pathetic at politics and current affairs, but I know how to grieve for the soul of humanity. Pressure calling perhaps not for our warped perceptions of "justice" but for a prevailing common sense needs to be applied to those who have a duty and the ability to influence this massacre. And The God Of All People's is the only One who can ultimately make us humble and desperate enough to crave a peaceful resolution that will selflessly ensure that life can go on. With things the way they are, if all these wars are ultimately "faith"-initiated, then where is the global call to prayer to the God/s we are claiming to belong to/defend? Do we think He may not want a say/hand in the matter? As it has always been, perhaps we would just rather do things our own way, even though we rather like to think He will ALWAYS be on our side. All I can do is address myself to Him,grieve and cry out for peace, for surely He is the only one who can bring it. And blessed are the Peacemakers for they shall be called the Sons and Daughters of God. I add my deep lament to yours. Bless you, Huda, Amen. LOL Kate xx

King of Terror (Poetry) - 7/30/2006 8:38:41 PM
oh very nice tribute and work, enjoyed and keep up the great work...

King of Terror (Poetry) - 7/30/2006 5:08:02 PM
In Lebanon 750 people - mainly civilians - have been killed by Israeli action, some by phosphorous incendiary bombs. Only today 60 civilians died including 37 children in Qana in an Israeli airstrike. Israel also has killed 4 UN peace keepers and injured several others. I'm the voice of those dead, burnt children screaming at the silent world. Take action and save us from death. Love and peace

King of Terror (Poetry) - 7/30/2006 4:06:29 PM
I don't know what to say. Sorry isn't a word that means anything anymore. We've all let our ethics go to Hell with apathy. We all are victims of leaders who , like centures before us...could care less. People's lives are thought of as percentages now. God is our Savioe. He will deal with all of this...His way. Susan

King of Terror (Poetry) - 7/30/2006 2:22:24 PM
Modern war is conducted at a distance with impunity on structures and vehicles. Like a movie, the game players keep their hands clean. Thank you for rubbng their noses in the stink of their arrogance. Ron

King of Terror (Poetry) - 7/30/2006 1:30:45 PM
The word that will need answering to the Lord. Is IMPUNITY! Many in the west just see people dying on CNN with as much thought as a Hollywood movie. They just will not relate that these are real decent folk. BUT what is to come I feel may finish off a sleeping, lazy greedy giant... Even today and a few days ago a vote was taken.. 83% OF Brits want to finish our "special relationship" with the American empire...

Rights and wrongs, aggressors and victims, war-mongers and doves, the simple truth is that war stamps the lives of thousands with its bombblast shells and rifle butts and leaves horror, disgust and a sense of powerlessness in it's wake of death and pain. Totally agree with the consensus that war is a human evil but, perhaps equally to blame are the rest of us who wring our hands and do nothing to call for those "in charge" and those in positions of influence to work purposefully in whatever ways it takes to bring about a semblance of peace - however fragile. Life IS fragile and it and the world needs to be handled with care. We are all accountable. Racial and religious conflicts may be the start of wars, but you can bet your bottom dollar that they are tactically sustained... and economically managed by those whose real job it is to intervene. The whole of life is political and the future of the world hangs in the balances of power. Bless you and your family and people, Huda: here is where the rubber hits the road. I weep with you.

Join the world in calling for an immediate cessation of hostilities between Israel and Hezbollah. Lebanon “has been torn to shreds", said Lebanese Prime Minster Fouad Siniora. “I call upon you all to respond immediately... and provide urgent international humanitarian assistance to our war-stricken country. Can the international community stand by while such callous retribution by the state of Israel is inflicted on us?" 300 people had been killed and 500,000 others displaced in a week of Israeli attacks. Many thousands continue to flee Lebanon. A humanitarian crisis is in the making. The country has been under a total blockade for the last week preventing medications and necessary supplies to enter the country. Wounded people are not able to have the necessary treatment, and children and adults are suffering from a shortage of food and water. Relief agencies say there is a growing need for water, sanitation and medical facilities for those displaced within Lebanon French President Jacques Chirac called for humanitarian corridors in Lebanon to protect civilians from Israeli air raids as they flee the fighting. I only join the Lebanese Prime Minister and the French President in their plea. Help stop the Violence. Love and Peace Huda

Huda I hate that Lebanon is being destroyed along with many innocent people. But does Hezbollah and many of the other Islamic people care that Israel and the Jews are being killed and destroyed? Who is innocent anyway. Can innocent people avoid being killed in war. did hezbollah, Hamas, Saddam Hussein, Irans Ayatollah not kill thousands of innocent people in their own countries? Please, don't let emotions blind you to truth.

Words fail me... I am such a coward, I have passed by this three times already today... the picture just totally sickens me. You raise such gut-wrenching questions... and I think you, above all, are qualified to answer and to speak, if I am not mistaken. But, for me, it is just the awful reality of that picture. Yes, one of the prosperous nations at the forefront of world affairs... experiencing this most cannibalistic and animalistic behaviour... Is THIS the human race, I ask myself? If so, we are racing like lemmings over the edge and no mistake. Surely there are enough jaw-jaw-ers who can make sense enough to appease the war-war-ers?? Or, as is being constantly asked, is the will for peace so absent that lawless self-destruction will prevail? We talk about "The World" and "War" as if it is some abstract body "out there"... but, the truth is, it could just as easily, in another time and place, be ME OR YOU that is being held aloft here; that makes "War" and "The World" ultimately close and personal. We are all accountable, all responsible. And the days of reckoning seem to loom ever closer. Bless you for your bravery here, Huda. LOL Kate xx

Justice is not for the squimish...BUT It is THE BATTLE for all who believe that JUSTICE IS for ALL. The Voice of the writing is to battle and make war on the unjust. Corruption of the world is the collective thoughts of the corruption in the hearts of those who "lead" the world. Unfortunately in this day and age, the people of the world are being lead by their own ignorance of the truth into destruction by evil hearts in evil beings. LOVE is the weapon of the warriors in this battle. And to you braveheart, LOVE is the truth. Be well sweet poets. Your words are an ointment of JOY to those who are hurting and a trumpet call to those who are sleeping.

Beauty and corruption are seamlessly woven in this contrapuntal write. Your collaborations breathe easily as two sides of a coin coming together most naturally and your expression of duallism is always finely tuned and honed. I have no idea which of you wrote what lines. You are a perfect blend of style and voicing. And your chosen messages are always superb and delicately articulated with femininity, grace, and yet also with a hypertensile strength. You make the ideal poetic dance partnership! A potent and poignant poem, thank you. Kate xx

I thought the visual was a bronze eye when the page first popped up.... and no wonder!! A visionary write of insight and understanding that trains the heart in the ways of a hard-won peace: no pain, no gain. As long as there is anything other than selflessness in the mind of man, he will always turn his face towards domination or conquest. Sadly the horrors of war are the outcome. A most noble collaboration, nobly expressed. TY and may you both be blessed in your endeavours. This contains elements of both the hawk and the dove, the soldier and the ballerina. Very visceral and beautiful. LOL Kate xx

Fisher Prince  (Poetry) - 9/21/2005 10:12:10 PM
Nice job, Huda. This created a unique sensation. The rhytym lulled, while the message jolted.

Fisher Prince  (Poetry) - 9/21/2005 9:47:22 PM

Fisher Prince  (Poetry) - 9/21/2005 8:31:04 PM
I recognize the theme from the story "Fisher Prince" in your book Blue Fire. It was quite a mythological tale that I enjoyed very much. I love the poem too

Fisher Prince  (Poetry) - 9/21/2005 8:23:06 PM
Superb poem written in splendid couplets. Love the theme! Look forward to more Huda!;-) Eileen

Powerful, indeed. Dreadfully sorrowful, horribly painful, and reverberating with righteous anger, yet it is possible to take a certain measure of solace in the skill with which you get these things across. May the future be brighter for you and your loved ones...for all who have suffered devastating losses. Peace and Godspeed, Phyllis

Another Storm (Poetry) - 9/3/2005 6:44:10 AM
Poet, your powerful words flow across the page just as rapidly as Katrina helped to destroy over 90,000 square miles of land in the Gulf region of the United States. Hopefully our federal government will finally bring the urgent relief in sufficient quantities that need to be delivered throughout this affected region without all the excuses they’ve come up with since Katrina hit our sacred, southern shores. It’s not like they didn’t know it was coming! Excellent work. Thank you for sharing it. Take good care and be well.

Another Storm (Poetry) - 9/2/2005 7:49:07 AM
Wonderful write!

Another Storm (Poetry) - 9/2/2005 2:37:23 AM
"Anither Storm"... A composition rich in imagery and contents delivering a poetic excellence and a profound message. I salute You, Poet! Andre Emmanuel Bendavi ben-YEHU

Another Storm (Poetry) - 9/1/2005 3:07:17 PM
Packing a punch with its lucidity and beauty - and not shirking the delicate or difficult questions and anguish that lurks not far from any of us. Passionate and poignant, and cannot fail to touch with its imagery. TY and Bless you, Kate xx

Another Storm (Poetry) - 9/1/2005 2:21:22 PM
I haven't read any of the Katrina poems yet, but I am really gglad I read yours, it is excellent.

Another Storm (Poetry) - 9/1/2005 8:55:41 AM
so sad this happened; my heart goes out to Katrina'a victims...God be with them all.... (((HUGS))) and much love, your frien in Tx., Karen Lynn. :( >tears <

Another Storm (Poetry) - 8/31/2005 10:28:53 PM
excellent poem on a tragic event ...

Another Storm (Poetry) - 8/31/2005 9:15:37 PM
Many warnings were given yet so many did not heed them and now we grieve for them. These type of disasters bring out the best and worst in people. Before we forget it, we are still in the middle of the hurricane season and more may be in the offering for those left destitute by Katrina. I pray this never comes to pass.

Another Storm (Poetry) - 8/31/2005 7:36:56 PM
What a perfect poem this is Huda! You have captured the meaning and the depth of emotion that this terrible event evokes.Beautifully done! Eileen

Another Storm (Poetry) - 8/31/2005 7:08:47 PM
Your words remind us that nature is a force much greater than man and once her decision is made there is nothing we can say or do to stop her. The loss of life and property is so very sad and overwhelming, but to look objectively at the power that nature possesses and can exhibit, it is truly amazing and mind-boggling. This is an excellent poem and in building it's foundation from another strong, related poem, through symbolism, you show how life goes on, even through tragedy and adversity. Take care, Sherry

Another Storm (Poetry) - 8/31/2005 6:32:58 PM
I love the idea of building on your previous poem Waters It shows a continous concern for mankind Wonderful tribute, Huda

Another Storm (Poetry) - 8/31/2005 6:23:20 PM
Oh poet, what a sad poem and an outstanding tribute That once was my beloved “Katrina The twist of using the name was very intelligent and appropriate, I loved it. Very deep effect of the cries of pain emitted by the victims thank you for sharing

Another Storm (Poetry) - 8/31/2005 5:43:28 PM
The poem gives the terrible drowning effect. But America will march on. Good to seya back..

Another Storm (Poetry) - 8/31/2005 5:38:46 PM
Katrina is a powerful reminder of the awesome force that is nature and how small we are compared to her. This poem is a blend of the gentle and the terrible and thus very effective. Thank you for sharing your gift, Huda. May it rise as prayer for relief for all of the victims. Love and peace to you. Regis

Friendly Fire (Poetry) - 8/19/2005 9:47:15 AM
What I was going to write here Huda I just can't. The vivid pictures of 9/11 are still fresh in my mind, and they are the pictures of horror. War itself, is horror unleashed to a magnitude no one should have to bear witness to. Your piece is well constructed Huda, and well written. The subject of this piece brings tears to my eyes, when I think of all of the innocence throughout the world, that has been lost, because of the political struggle we call war. Why do we have to suffer too? Thanx for sharing Huda. May the Lord Jesus bless you, and those whom you love, and be with you always, and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, stubborn to a fault, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your little sad & terrified sister, Barbie "If I have to be this girl in me, Then I may as well be."

Waters (Poetry) - 7/15/2005 9:37:42 AM
Very powerful tribute to the tsunami victims God bless you for that one

Friendly Fire (Poetry) - 7/15/2005 9:36:23 AM
Very painful image of war and very powerful twist when the hero is actually killed by friendly fire Well done

As I Lay Dying (Poetry) - 7/14/2005 12:02:34 PM
I had to make that decision for my wife after the accident. It was the hardest thing I ever did and I still wonder what if? Thank you poet for sharing this poem

Flip-Flop (Poetry) - 6/11/2005 1:18:37 AM
I'm shaking in my chair, Huda! Sheer horror and despair! You have painted the picture only too well. God bless, Sandie.

Morituri Te Salutamus (Poetry) - 4/22/2005 1:38:14 PM
Huda, I cannot imagine living in a place of fear. I'm sorry you have endured this. Not all Americans are bad, not all Americans want war. It's those in leadership who direct the pawns--you don't see them on the front lines. Meanwhile, our troops are dying as well as millions of innocent civilians-- GAD. Excellent, powerful, screaming call of ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!! (((HUGS))) and love, Karla. :(

Friendly Fire (Poetry) - 4/22/2005 1:26:39 PM
Huda, Shattering imagery, an exceptionally painful call for piece--your words are not painful, the subject matter is--thank you, Poet! (((HUGS))) and love, Karla. *tears*

Friendly Fire (Poetry) - 4/7/2005 9:07:23 PM
And though I bleed My blood is as white As river Jordan Baptizing me in Peace. An outstanding poem by all means, Prophet of peace The message and poetic voice are sublime The imagery and flow are so strong that I think this one is one of the best I ever read God bless

As I Lay Dying (Poetry) - 4/4/2005 11:07:35 AM
Ohhh Huda, what sorrow. What pain. What agony. What a wasted life beautifully portrayed. Your words conjure tragedy, horror... if only because the screams in your poem AS I LAY DYING, were never heard. Your poetry always moves me, Huda. ~ Mari

As I Lay Dying (Poetry) - 4/3/2005 10:17:53 PM
This write moved me well within your realm, and the vision thereof became clear. Wonderful piece on a much feared subject. Allen

Friendly Fire (Poetry) - 4/3/2005 6:42:23 PM
very interesting. i have never read your poetry until today but i intend to remedy that tonight

As I Lay Dying (Poetry) - 4/3/2005 6:40:33 PM
this is excellent. i have avoided this issue but this poem is so expressive and lovely, i wouldn't have missed it. i too am a fan of anima so i liked the picture

As I Lay Dying (Poetry) - 4/3/2005 5:18:43 PM
Very powerful and timely poem in light of Terry Schiavo's case. It also reminds me of the passing of my mother-in-law who just died at age 93 on 3/7 and my husband as her POA had to make a decision whether to take her off the life support machine. Moving poem. Elena

Waters (Poetry) - 4/3/2005 3:53:30 PM
Depicted with the imagery that only a masterpoet knows how to impart.

Friendly Fire (Poetry) - 4/3/2005 3:50:00 PM
Peace that elusive and slippery moment in time that vanishes so quickly leaving the stench of death to remind us once more of war.

As I Lay Dying (Poetry) - 4/3/2005 3:43:22 PM
You grasp the futility in the dying persons mind. Well done

As I Lay Dying (Poetry) - 4/3/2005 3:07:12 PM
A strong poem, captivating imagery, a terrible plight made relevant by recent headlines. Science leaps so far ahead of morality that technological kindness is no kindness at all, offering no support to the spirit. (Loved the anime art work).

As I Lay Dying (Poetry) - 4/3/2005 3:05:24 PM
Very chilling yet it has a very clear message.

As I Lay Dying (Poetry) - 4/3/2005 1:57:56 PM
Huda, Chilling to contemplate--living yet not living Timely, thought provoking, excellent write-- (((HUGS))) and love, Karla. :(

As I Lay Dying (Poetry) - 4/3/2005 1:35:55 PM
Great poem... on a subject that will never go away... at least in this lifetime...

As I Lay Dying (Poetry) - 4/3/2005 12:23:19 PM
This is well done dramatic write and I love the passion that you portray in it. Well done my friend. Felix

As I Lay Dying (Poetry) - 4/3/2005 11:17:56 AM
Powerful write, death can be a blessing.

As I Lay Dying (Poetry) - 4/3/2005 11:14:15 AM
Huda, "As I Lay Dying" is a chilling write that defines dying - versed with startling imagery that pulls the reader into reality. This is superbly penned!! Best to you, Robert

As I Lay Dying (Poetry) - 4/3/2005 5:16:29 AM
Well done poem of a difficult subject. Henry

As I Lay Dying (Poetry) - 4/3/2005 4:24:28 AM
Huda, you've succeeded in composing a powerful poem, not of death but of life ...

As I Lay Dying (Poetry) - 4/3/2005 1:54:32 AM
Oh I ditto Eileen and Regis on this one!! Thanks for sharing Huda!! Love Tinka

As I Lay Dying (Poetry) - 4/2/2005 11:03:32 PM
Huda, I couldn't find a relationship between this poem and the story that carries the same name. This poem reminds me of your story "Cabbie" It's beautifully sad poem. I guess if I were in that situation I also would be screaming "Let me die" God bless you Tristan

As I Lay Dying (Poetry) - 4/2/2005 10:48:00 PM
Regis, you got us intrigued here. Is there anything else she is refering to rather than: Waiting for deliverance Longing for death Very powerful poem, Huda. It is timely now with the case of terri schivo. I guess that sums up your view on the issue. Love, Chris

As I Lay Dying (Poetry) - 4/2/2005 10:36:00 PM
I just know what you are alluding to here, Huda. You have the gift. You grab your readers by the soul and compel them all to feel what you are sharing. I tell you. If they do not get it; it is their loss. And it's a huge one. Thank you, Huda. LOVE and peace to you. Regis.

As I Lay Dying (Poetry) - 4/2/2005 10:25:14 PM
A haunting reminder of how we struggle to hold onto that last breath of life as it is taken from us...I also grasp the fact that you seem to be speaking out about the mechanical life saving methods that are so controversial in these past weeks. I am against these life saving methods and have a living will! I believe in God's everlasting life and abide in His plan!Well done Huda! Good to see you;-)! Eileen

Friendly Fire (Poetry) - 3/2/2005 3:05:42 AM
I agree.....most outstanding... I admire your passion...ty for sharing this. Dani

Friendly Fire (Poetry) - 3/1/2005 11:17:29 PM
Magnificent write, deep, vivid details. I like these lines... (I went to the end of time “In search for peace” Reverberation echoed Across the barren fields) Thanks for sharing this with us.

Flip-Flop (Poetry) - 3/1/2005 4:22:46 PM
