Hello Lou, quite an electric jolt to persons seeking truth about God and being unsure where to find it. You begin by kneeling in the midst of traditions that seem more contradictory than alike, the protestant and Catholic faith. You then footnote by noting the difference between religion and a personal relationship to God. As pastor I find myself wrestling with these truths. Religion can be a tool if it finds ways to bind people together in God honoring ways. Too often people get decided to worshipping someone others than God in the name of religion. Tx for sharing

Hello pesky Amanda, I enjoyed the attempt at conjuring up mischief in a town that seemed too boring for words. The antagonist is Jake who seems to be itching to have a good time at the expense of others. It may have helped to just note it was Jake's parents instead of a generalized boys' parents. It seemed confusing. I wonder why anyone would sell itching powder. Tx for sharing

I long for sleep too, Tannus. I think that is what makes poetry such an effective tool. There is connection that can lead to hope, because I know I am not alone and some on your sentiments echo my own frustration. Especially subtle reminders of wounds of war. I reminded of a need to manage my hurt or be faced with it leaking out to hurt me. Hopefully tomorrow night will be better.

Hello Rupali, a curious piece that starts with none and proceeds to nun. After that their is a dance of words that lead to a house gate. I am not sure about what it means to kiss me with your right. I also was not clear about the bun being eaten and the mock fight. Maybe it was rhyming? TX for sharing

Thanks Well, a whimsical romp into some sayings that greet all of us at some time or another. The only one I had not heard was about the frog hair split twenty seven ways. Thanks for your creative piece which takes us from the first rodeo to realize a person can be all broth and no beans. Tx

Hello Lou learning, a nice introduction to the therapeutic gift of listening. It begins with realizing people talk too much and then over time thru friendship discovering that listening makes a difference. The same dreamer becomes the best listening doctor. I think there is a lesson in your story for as all of us.

Thanks for sharing your poem Snow, I enjoy the idea of changing the name of God as an impetus to spiritual and personal growth. It hinges on your two truths; God came to save, deliver humanity and the idea of knowing this name leads to greater love for God and life. TX for sharing

Hello Carly, well written. I love the choice of topic; the blood curdling image of the Jack o Lantern, so familiar at Halloween. Your closing words capture the reader in a death grip
death calls you here
It traps you deep and sucks you dry
Struggle against it, or you die

That was an imaginative romp Fyn. It feels like you left nothing out to chance which lead to your ending of wishing to be an elf on an upper shelf where all the fun starts. There is no need for a cubicle for the likes of you. Yet there are ferns, dragon, griffons and much more you will find nowhere else. TX for sharing.

Hello Gupta, at first glance I thought your sonnet silly, and yet as I continued reading I had my own wake up call. The end stays with me: "Why give knowledge to someone who thinks it fake." There is quite a bit of wisdom to be gleaned. Thanks for sharing.wise.
"But learning itself seems to be bankrupt
When men of learning prefer to close eyes."

Hello Tim, a very curious choice of words to express a picture of God's love with words as your paint brush. A restful closing is the goal, prefaced by dreams, poise being offered in the form of prayer. I would like to know more about what this poise means and a clearer understanding of what advantageous craft means in relation to kingdom. Is it a vehicle or skill set. Thanks for sharing.

A nice bit for me to chew on isokarifrancis, I hear the voice that nags at my own soul: a weariness that makes me want to lie down and give up to save myself frustration and disappointment. I am glad you leave it up to weariness to give message. There is hope.

Hello Rhyssa, I enjoyed the many ways that you were able to let your hair spring out. The image of bird to flight, warriors helmet, scorpions sting, the caress of sunlight in aging process. Even in the end of your poem it becomes obvious you made friends with your hair however long it was. TX for sharing

Hello Jays, it does look like you were able to provide an environment in which your son could succeed. I wondered how the education of your husband and yourself may have facilitated his success. I liked that you applaud what he does well and offer times of recreation. Spirituality is important. I did note one tense structure that was inconsistent. The sentence that says sends and pressed. Tx

It is all about who has the phone as to how it is to be approached. At the end of a day the only thing that makes sense is to watch it fly out the window as if it has wings. The realization is there. No matter what I do it is not good enough. Thanks for sharing, clever.

Hello Tim, seems appropriate in the light of all the media about January 6th. The ending is prophetic. There is a sense in which promises being broken meaning trust is betrayed and how do we learn to trust again. It seems to be where we are at as a nation. Republicans and Democrats looking in the mirror unable to trust which is not good for our country going forward.

Hello Tim, I gravitate to the ending of your poem. There can be I would say "splendid" and grateful life ahead when one knows the power of a caring presence when losing someone you love. I could quibble with other wording. "Sheriff of absolutism" and yet I need to add the way you word things is what makes the poem uniquely yours. Thanks for sharing. I leave your poem knowing that because you know hope I can know it too!!

Hello GB Williams, a lot to think about. I am left wondering who wants the perfect life? And human nature says we do the best we can to shape our narrative in that direction, where I can play a hero or at least be in the same conversation of someone I love and admire. I guess we all do the best we can with what we have. My perfect life was getting lost and found in New Hampshire woods. I yelled for God, no one else would listen. So that story has always been there for me. So in a sense surviving one predicament after another. Define perfect.lol

Hello Alexz, very sobering account of what happens when one deals with the s***ty feelings that do not want to go away. Journalling has an ability to be therapeutic. How do I buy into a process. As the journal says in subtle unspoken way. Just because I am not happy does not mean one day I will not awaken to happiness at a deeper level. Thanks for sharing. It's kind of like learning how to deal with s*** in a way to make it manure.

I enjoy the dramatic realism of your poem that awakes me out of slumber. I was reminded of how drastically my own life changed when as a youth I was put in a State hospital never to go home again. It could never be the same and yet the memories you talk of keep me alive as I move into my seventies doing all I can to give those with special needs a second chance.

Hello Alexis, I am glad for the romantic sentiment. Too often we dwell on ptsd and forget healing moments like what you share are the foundation of what gives us hope. The vision of the lanterns, along with the dance of fireflies and stars in ethereal display to a music that can only be defined as divine. TX for sharing.

Hello Finch, TX for the good word in patriotic color of red white and blue. You poem well rhymed and flowing reads like prophecy. The villains pay dearly and those who died serve as a reminder that freedom comes at a cost and yes it is worth it. Thanks for sharing. I knew some fire fighters and chaplain involved in redeeming from the wreckage.

Hello Rapali, a curious tale, there is something that is ominous and familiar at the same time. The questions seem ambiguous. The first one "how does it do here?" And later after excitement becoming senseless, which is something I can't understand as it is written. Thanks for sharing

I like very much that you have enjoyed the pastoral care of your priest. I was a pastor and nothing was more important than trying to share the caring presence of God that was offered at critical times of my life. I am glad you can share this with others. May the memory of your priest endure forever.

Hello Hunter's moon, I love the rhyme and cadence, the professional nature of your poem. You go to extraordinary lengths to credit those who inspire and then find an eloquent way to do so. I feel lead to your conclusion to trust the journey acknowedging by sands lit to final night. Thank you for sharing. I feel richer having read your work.
