Traveling BookRegis L ChapmanWhile I found the stanza: What Where When Why words in stone at ease smiling sycophantic night stars moving cars mountain high desert dry water wet sun set Thank You and Please To actually be the weakest part of the poem and so wondered at its repeat , I really injoyed the rest of it especially the third stanaza, Thanks for letting me read it. 2008-08-03 14:25:16
Whispersmarilyn terwillegerAlways wonderful to read one of your poems, and feel the voices in the forrest speaking softly in my ear, Thanks for the good read, I only wish Icould suggest something to improve your work but my talents are not up to that challange2006-11-06 15:51:35
Silencemarilyn terwillegerI like taking the common act of listening to a seashell and getting a roaring silence, Your always a good read.2006-04-28 07:14:55
Eternal VoidApril Rose Ochinang ClaessensInteresting read, thanks for the note as it saved me looking it up, In particularly liked the last line2006-04-28 07:07:48
Old FriendLatorial D. FaisonThe middle stanza here hits me most in that we rush so quickly to angered yet drag our feet to forgive, I need to find those hills, Thanks for letting me read and comment. 2005-01-06 16:04:36
A Birthday Psalmstephen g skipperthis poem reads a long so prettily that it makes one think its too sweet to be substantial, which would be a mistake I think, lines such as; Fingertips on my skin, tracing a pattern intricate and infinite. gives the reader reason to pause and think about such patterns that passion would inspire, differant ones for every reader I'm sure; Thanks for giving me reason to pause and ponder.2005-01-06 15:42:55
A Web WithinLennard J. McIntoshTracing out those intricate thought patterns that lead us to a level of understanding of our inner life perhaps if we're lucky even to epiphany but to get to the higher levels of self awareness calls for an honesty unshaken enough to not flinch in the face of self horror and also enough natural awareness that we're in a special place that may not come again, well thats kind of what I get from this poem, Thanks for letting me read and comment.2005-01-06 14:07:22
Where's a frog when you need one!Lynda G SmithHypotheses are always in need of experimentation to test and science demands the ablilty to prove wrong and be repeatable, yet fairy tales demand happy endings for chamomile princesses but all is for not without that elusive amphibian. Yet I would hope faith remains hopeful, Thanks for letting me read and ramble on in comment.2005-01-06 12:01:23
When We DiePaul R LindenmeyerI can see the grim ripper coming along sickle in skeletal hand to cut the thread of life of course he could just use a feather and tickle the soul free from its earthly bounds that way we go with a smile, Thanks for letting me read and comment.2005-01-06 11:23:59
Cut and PasteMell W. MorrisI find myself rereading the line he left her with their obsolete relationship wrapped round her neck like a boa because I find in my mind rotating the image of a piece of clothing and the image of a snake because old relationships even when gone can be used to cofort by waying of using it for a reason not to go farther in interactions with others but it can all so be used to choke off our life depending on how a person uses it I would guess its hard to throw off, needing much time and therapeutic help, either by our selves or with others help and I have always found poetry very therapeutic, Thanks for letting me read and comment.2005-01-06 10:52:46
Abiding WinterJoanne M UppendahlThis reminds me of when I was young and use to go camping by a near by lake and deep into the fall when it was cool but before the first frost has fallen sitting by the fire listing to a frog singing out his from deep in his throat, I can see the mist on that lake and feel the low heat of the nearby fire as I read your poem, Why is it so many of your poems flicker my youthful memmories all I can say is thanks.2005-01-04 14:51:31
A lovers dreamstephen g skipperI like then dreamy images that this one gives me and also the expression of longing to be united, Thanks for letting me read and comment.2005-01-04 14:42:44
I Remember JulenisseRick BarnesI keep wondering if belief and faith can really be separated or if one doesn't imply the other , I know you make the distinction between one being of the heart and one being of the mind and while I find this to be true analytically i'm not so certain if they can exist apart actually, Thanks for letting me read and comment.2005-01-04 14:34:37
HIMmarilyn terwillegerI'm glad you re-posted as I wasn't here for the original posting, because I find this to be a very powerful piece. Thanks for letting me read and comment.2005-01-04 13:45:15
Because I'm a WomanLatorial D. Faisonwhen a poem captures an emotion and passes it on to the reader in all its fullness, the poem has really fullfilled its mission, such as yours does here. thanks for letting me read and comment.2005-01-04 13:10:38

Come Be With Me Like The RainMell W. MorrisI find myself pondering the culture vs nature finding it as rhyming the eccentricities vs drawing from the dualism in world and spirit lines in this poem, perhaps meaning that society is built on the worst extremes of our natural being, I'm probably just misreading, but thanks for a good read and letting me comment.2005-01-04 11:54:43
Christmas TracesMell W. Morrisinteresting read with a note that does enhance the understanding of the poem, I love the final scene of the coronation with tinsel as contrasted with the rest of the poem.2005-01-04 11:44:09
Love Tidemarilyn terwillegerA sonnet on the ebb and flow of love, nature and emotion intertwine nicely and the last two lines are a dandy summing up I think.2005-01-04 11:11:31
untitledRachel F. SpinozaYou know I can't use the word hurled in poems any more because my wife says it reminds her of vomiting, your poem of course does not suggest that at all but reminds me bof the asteroid that may have end the dinosaurs time on earth of course I remmeber two of the theory of the death star that may cause periodic mass extinctions on earth I haven't read anything on that in a few years I'll have to check how that stands up to scienitific scrutiny nowadays, well thanks for making me think about that I always like to haiku back a haiku lets see: hellaciously rocked earthy bell rung out the time ends are shaken mean Oh well thats my feeble attempt2005-01-03 15:27:10

UnknownLatorial D. FaisonVell my dear Latorial zee doctor must attempt to penetrate all of zees individuals to delve into zee inner complex .............. oh wait a minute that was just one of my personalities the doctor, I locked him back up, this poem did make me think about the inner workings of my mind and also the interractions of the mind and spirit and emotions................

Letting the Me OutLatorial D. FaisonFrom reading your poetry I never thought You- so often I keep me bottled up inside But I guess thats just my impression, it seems to me nothing would interfer with you letting yourself out, but maybe your poems more about not letting yourself being smothered by someone else. Thanks for letting me read and comment.2005-01-03 14:42:18
verse 67 (Jellyfish)Erzahl Leo M. EspinoYou know I usually like to answer your haikus with one of my own but this is one I want to just sit back and appreciate, Thanks for an excellent read.2005-01-03 14:17:34
Out The Window I GoPaul R Lindenmeyerif other peoples mistakes made the same impression on us as our own(mentally and physically) then we'd find it much easier to grow wiser. And having an eleven year old step daughter I can see the words of warning as they go around hear ears and never in them but thats the nway things always tend but I have hope that I impress somewhat. Thanks for letting me read and comment.2005-01-03 13:50:50
In the Sea of Sri LankaJane A DayWhy does your poem bring to my mind a combination of chaos theory and the ending of its a wonderful life - " Everytime butterfly flaps its wings an angel urinates" Oh well that may just be my strange sense of science meets pop culture Thanks for making me wonder.2004-12-30 17:58:03

Norsemen of AntiquityThomas H. SmihulaI keep coming back top this one wanting to comment but unsure if I can do it adequate, I enjoy it quite abit and of course it brings the name leaf erikson to mind and the hardships the Norsemen faced so long ago, Thanks for the good read.2004-12-22 09:58:55
THE KING HAS SPOKENMonica ONeillVery whimsical piece of poetry, that seems to capture every kitty I've ever known, PURRRRRRRRRfect!!!2004-12-21 07:19:17
IndividualityLatorial D. FaisonYou mention prayer and it sounds like a prayer and as always your individuality comes through, short and sweet, Thanks for letting me read and comment.2004-12-16 11:08:38
Nightmare At My StreetErzahl Leo M. EspinoNo light on your subject just found it an an interesting read and thanks for all the notes as they give necesassary perspective, and even though I'm of European descent I'll eat lighter.2004-12-16 10:50:11
The Stones I CarryMedard Louis Lefevre Jr.Are the stones a metaphor, which I think they must be if they can break temptations which makes me wonder at what breaks scornful stares, walls(i'll assume all walls we build between our selves and others), light( knowledge of ourselves perhaps ), and temptations. I'm not certain if their just general faults or perhaps something more specific, Thanks for letting me read and comment on this interesting poem. 2004-12-16 10:44:46
Lunar LongingJoanne M UppendahlDoes this mean the planet's Saturn Moon Titan is now a star, at least the Earths natural satellite can look hopeful to playing at least a cameo on up coming films, Thanks for the good read enjoyed it much.2004-12-06 08:35:11
November Elegy (connected haiku)Joanne M UppendahlIn the first I see the leaves twirling in the wind, giving asignal in the second for the animals to depart, the third one makes me think do the leaves seek burial at all I find myself answering yes only in the sence that to join with the soil it will once more become part of a living being once more only of course after it hang glides through the scenic space between the limb it leaves behind and the embrcae of the ground, and lastly the geese making what sounds like their getaway glad to hit the vacation sites they've been dreaming of. Thanks as always for letting me read and comment. 2004-12-06 07:46:34
The Cabinmarilyn terwillegerThis poem pretty well captivated me ( I think I read it about Ten times) I wouldn't change a thing. 2004-12-02 14:52:06
Autumn TambourinesDeniMari Z.Enjoyed reading this one very much, lots of images to stroll through my mind, all my tambourines have fallen and need to be collected although the wind is sharing them with the neighbors, now its time for me to return to that mysterious pool.2004-12-01 11:39:48
The Things I Leave Undonemarilyn terwillegerAlways good to hike through your lines of emerald and crimson, makes the mind climb and I think I know well the line: Known absurd folly of eagerness I relly like the line: Now the sharp edge of midnight creeps Although after a couple of reads I still wonder about the wizard sun, Thanks for letting me read and comment.2004-11-30 09:35:31
Earth, Moon and Sun (connected haiku)Joanne M UppendahlThe dance of our solar system (well a small part of it but I thought mars might try to cut in) they interact and without speaking express emotion, especially the earths blazing heart( although I hope it doesn't light up that could be a nuclear expression) Thanks for letting me read and comment.2004-11-30 09:23:15
verse 66 (Stars)Erzahl Leo M. EspinoLine wine makes me think of champaigne, I see the bubbles leaving an open bottle and floating into the air especially when followed by line two - what better way to steal a vow. But it makes me wonder how they feel about the moons nuptials . sounds like their jealous. Thanks for letting me read and comment.2004-11-30 09:16:20
Winter WaltzPatricia Gibson-WilliamsThis one charms me, it just flows so well and up here in Pa. we get snow every year. I'll build a snowman/snowwoman for you. Thanks for letting me read and comment. 2004-11-29 15:05:48
