The Tale of Re'Mark (Short Story) - 6/24/2006 3:33:28 PM|
Pan the teacher, Re'Mark the seeker...on an eternal quest of truth and reason. And it all comes down to the truth that is within each of us, but very few have the courage to follow. Nicely done!

Wow, I enjoyed this, and it reminded me a bit of Paul Coehelo (misspelled). That was a great ending.

"...the meaning of life,is the pursuit of your dreams."
The Tale of Re'Mark (Short Story) - 4/15/2003 10:45:46 AM
I loved this story. It is so universal, yet so personal. Well done. The progression, the detail, the personalities are outstanding. The concept is original and well thought out. The touch of mythology in the use of Pan as the guide is brillient.
The Tale of Re'Mark (Short Story) - 3/18/2003 8:54:53 PM
I go along with that.
Good story, Richard.

Good story. So mind altering, even the most close-minded person would have to crack the door just a little.
The Tale of Re'Mark (Short Story) - 9/24/2002 1:33:28 PM
An excellent story....thanks for the lesson...
The Tale of Re'Mark (Short Story) - 9/18/2002 5:48:51 PM
This one is tight, thank you for the comment on Stygian Skies -- hope some of my short stories have that same kind of impact on you. I write within the horror and true crime genres.
The Tale of Re'Mark (Short Story) - 9/11/2002 6:14:47 PM
excellent story, reminds me of when I read Carlos Castaneda so long ago...a very important message that we all tend to forget about...thank you for the eloquent reminder
The Tale of Re'Mark (Short Story) - 9/10/2002 6:05:09 AM
you are a very clever writer....you have put into this story a clear version of what life is all about or should be all about if we weren't so fearful....very mythical and very very good....you did an excellent job!!!!
anew (Poetry) - 1/5/2012 11:37:46 AM
if it was true to be
would i ever really be free
this is a dream i may never see
and so i leave it all to thee
painful and honest i am only me
watching the aging of the tree
where i felt the sting of the honey bee
bent down upon my knee
and i prayed
i am tired now. this life is to end-another to begin? i don't want to know anymore what is evidently not mine for the taking
he will do as he does the choices are not mine
and hence that word..."fine."
ravaged (Poetry) - 1/5/2012 11:33:11 AM
I have been away for some time as you know. I am pleased to be back and able to read your words dearest you have been in so many ways others seemingly can not relate. your works speak to me in night and in the day where i wish i could find the same as so many long for.

ether (Poetry) - 3/5/2011 3:50:03 PM
Oh, longing so deeply...
and those dreams reaching out to take hold...
beautiful imagery, the 'pearlized ether', so brilliantly shines, yet so fragile, so untouchable, yet beckoning and shining through the pain and mmemory, hope maybe will come alive...
monsters waiting to swallow me (Poetry) - 3/4/2011 2:36:36 PM
Such Imagery! & the pain of those demons so frightening...
they pull and so much pain they bring, yet that soul/spirit cries out for that salvation...
snowflakes (Poetry) - 3/4/2011 2:33:48 PM
so much here, passion--the good, the painful and that wonderful ending, beautiful...that 'dawn
snowflake dreams, love it, so fragile, so beautiful, so human!
anew (Poetry) - 2/20/2011 12:08:52 PM
to be reborn...
so many 'moments' that 'eternity upon' the soul...
you are so beautifully contemplative here, oh, we are getting older, perhaps and longing..
painful, touching...the angel may have fallen, but seems here to be seeking new life, anew, indeed...
ravaged (Poetry) - 2/20/2011 12:02:22 PM
so relate in my own way...
salvation so longed for and cannot see either
you have touched the heart's pain and the soul's yeearning, my friend...
this world can be so difficult, sigh, life such a struggle and here is one within this piece who longs and dreams still...
may you find the comfort you seek and may all of us who are moved by this find the same...wmh,
anew (Poetry) - 5/16/2009 10:53:47 PM
engagingly pensive self-reflection, richard.
the mood echoes in one's mind; alas, to be reborn, to rise to a new
level of consciousness, to attain that elusive sacred unity and its
attendant eternal peace... hmmm...
a truly wonderful read.
snowflakes (Poetry) - 1/4/2009 5:56:27 PM
Much said in few words, Richard...I love the snowflake dreams your dawn brings...so light and peaceful.

Grabs the soul and makes it wish...

Another fine work, Richard.
You really get to the heart of things.
"i am just so caught in living
you know how i am dared..."
Everyone should be so lucky. Live each day to the fullest. You never know when your last day will come.

Sounds like a pretty typical youth.
Careful with that flying on your Harley. The older you get the more you break.

Well done, as usual.

Truly beautiful Richard. Such warm thoughts penned so perfectly.
to miss lestrange (Poetry) - 5/17/2007 3:24:04 PM
The economy of your work is masterful. This is a poem that reads like a gentle watercolor -- art, yes, but at its softest, a mere kiss of paint on the canvas.

Most passionate offering!!
to miss lestrange (Poetry) - 4/9/2007 2:28:15 PM
Perfect love is rare indeed - for to be a lover will require that you continually have the subtlety of the very wise, the flexibility of the child, the sensitivity of the artist, the understanding of the philosopher the acceptance of the saint, the tolerance of the scholar and the fortitude of the certain. --Leo Buscaglia
You love, Richard.

The touch of a wit-wise thought abounds through the words of "to my ex's".
I salute You, Poet.

This composition, "oh,the horrors" is a poetic accomplishment in grand style.
Good work, Poet!

to my ex's (Poetry) - 8/10/2006 6:20:29 PM
and you could and still can, I have to believe, have to...
here, you show that, so much here in so few words...
yes, the demons plague but dammit I Believe you have a capacity for the other, for love...just need to find your way somehow and let it shine
your love, yes, let it roar gently
'as if a god'....
this moved me as your work has much moved me lately, so, I mean it...
all the best, you, sir, and more.....
oh,the horrors (Poetry) - 8/10/2006 6:15:35 PM
damn, keep yearning.... your poetry is full of that yearning and more...
it hurts, this, to be so held/haunted, etc., and yes, those lines Elizabeth pointed out say so, so much...but the 'flesh' is not the whole, thankfully and you, dear Poet, write about it's hold on one so well, yet you know, there is again, that yearning and your heart may just someday lead you...who knows?
It takes hard work as we are at times so much slaves to our natures and backgrounds yet... there is something in your works that shows such heart, heartfelt need for the better, for good and love and peace within and yes, always, it seems that dream of heaven---oh, I could cry as it can be so hard to battle our duality/the dual nature within...you know...'the flesh is weak', but also richard the spirit, well, your spirit and heart both, perhaps, yearn, burn unbearably, yet still you write and something soars, thus, for me, it must live within you...how I hope you find that soaring nature that your heart holds ---at least from what you give us here...and
it does give and give and that my friend is Good, Goodness does live within you in spite of all the horrors, at least your words soar somehow w/that message to us...well, for me, it does and others, I think...please hold fast your heavenly, moonlit, star-filled dreams, make them real someday, oh, I so hope you find them grow stronger, somehow, inside of you (as we see it, you know)
oh,the horrors (Poetry) - 8/10/2006 12:35:30 PM
Bad nightmare but a well written piece!
oh,the horrors (Poetry) - 8/10/2006 10:35:17 AM

a life of crime (Poetry) - 8/9/2006 8:53:47 AM
I remember this one...
a life of crime (Poetry) - 8/8/2006 9:16:51 PM
Yes this is unique. The title drew me because I recently wrote something entitled 'The Prisoner'. I was completely fooled but delighted that I'd taken the time to read. Delightful!
a life of crime (Poetry) - 8/8/2006 1:03:30 PM
special and unique, the way you did this...one doesn't see that last line coming and also, ah, yes, please, if nothing else, do share it...
you, in this, it intrigues me w/it's drama that at first can seem more dark, personal, real and then it's as if you Are a phantom, out there, up there 'stealing' stars and ohhh, that 'moonlight'...
love it, did the first time, ages ago and you, well, a moon loving poet and sigh...don't we all wanna stael a star and especially that mmon so often, at the least, want it/them for our selves-- then again, I suppose it is so nice to share, also that night and its light...so dear thief, yes do give it back and we will still let you share..
a life of crime (Poetry) - 8/8/2006 2:24:19 AM
Never give that kinda stealing up...those are the bad times that makes the eyes shine bright like stars!!
I am a thief of stealing wonderful stars myself!!

starry night (Poetry) - 8/5/2006 7:56:39 PM
and a beautiful piece for that oh so intensly special'starry night'...it is perhaps my favorite painting of his, I also wrote a piece on it once and you swirl with the glory, within that night...it's a beautiful piece, richard, beautiful...

Fine offering Richard!!
on a roll (Poetry) - 8/5/2006 4:31:47 AM
I always said I made plans when "with" my father in battle fighting WW-2 hanging head upside down...knowing what hell is going to be one day dodging bullets...lol!!
on a roll (Poetry) - 8/3/2006 3:28:48 PM
Ah, richard, I like what Elizabeth says and you, well...through the pain and through the life you've lived, you've for so many years been a Poet, see...perhaps that is your destiny, at least a large part-- that place where you can bare the softest and the rawest wounds /the pain and the beauty and I don't know...but indeed on a roll you are in this new work --so much of it, and i imagine in that heart and your life as well...and sometimes it is a rolling hill we climb, but always the poet/wordsmith/giver of what lives within you!
sawyer (Poetry) - 8/3/2006 3:23:53 PM
yes, you are good at this, richard, i know and it is back breaking work, but you are also so very, very good as a sawyer of sorts w/words...this, well, you inspired me to write my first piece in a long, long time...
it has the sweat and raw strength and pull and push of stone cutting and of, also life screaming and more...a fine piece, yes, tho' remember you are 'good at' many more things than even you may Imagine...
and this piece is so excellent, it, well...again, raw, honest and much, much meaning is your words, as usual, sir!
(((r.))) remember you are good at giving, sigh...
what a piece, of work and yet of life and of body/mind/Spirit!!!
sunset (Poetry) - 8/3/2006 3:17:48 PM
strange, yes, to lose so often our battles, yet go on and somehow strong in the struggle and how much beauty you see, give, here, in this 'sunset', beautifully painted...ah, richard, I guess it might also be a metaphor for aging, also...
this is special and yes, you hold some dreams so close to that heart, though your life may have taken a different direction, oh we are complex, we humans and you've given us here another so honest glimpse into the pain and beauty and the search and more in this poem...
on a roll (Poetry) - 8/3/2006 4:01:23 AM
So true...we plan 'there' for this life 'here' to work out the kinks of our soul's growth, and satisfy the Divine Plan.
sawyer (Poetry) - 8/3/2006 4:00:07 AM
Destiny can be fickle.
sunset (Poetry) - 8/3/2006 3:58:28 AM
You'd be surprised at how many do NOT live each day as given, nor try to make it the best it can be. You are already way ahead of the pack.
Everytime something is "lost" there is always something better to replace it. Not everyone has the 'eye wisdom' or the 'heart wisdom' to see.
An excellent philisophical poem.
sunset (Poetry) - 8/2/2006 6:28:52 PM
I really like the first lines..
Hope all is well......
writing 101 (Poetry) - 7/24/2006 3:55:15 PM
"...take your pen in hand
then a long deep look inside
tell of what you see and more
that which the soul does hide..."
Wonderful lines...and that is the secret.
72106 (Poetry) - 7/24/2006 3:13:45 PM
richard, wow, Elizabeth is right, you are one a roll...and as for B'days, sorry I missed Cinqo de Mayo, and I wish I had missed my own, tho'...lol...but now...
read it aloud, it beats
softly and still
i feel some pain, yet
also, i feel, well, yes, sometimes Life is scary and some things seem so unable to be changed and oh i relate, but wish I could do as Elizabeth said, Look Forward...yes, hard, ain't it, but now always...
love the style, rhythm and the heart soul beating of this one,
hmmm...it is honest and written from within and again, mi amico...bravo...
writing 101 (Poetry) - 7/24/2006 3:07:20 PM
well, thankful I AM also to Mr. Lido...and for YOU and your work, richard!
yes, I believe one must take that 'long deep look inside'...and you do, sharing your heart/soul, all with us ...ah, richard, you dig deep and give and this, well...sigh, how love does go, how much past love can hurt and how much it takes to love, at times, when we have troubled souls/hearts, you know?

god, yes, just it sways and moves with the desire and the romance and the beauty of that feeling, oh, god, yes, just that first line, had me, it is so true, a touch of the hand and the heart can melt...
you've caught so much within these few beautifully chosen, swayin with that soul dancing and that heart...
it, the piece is entrancing...
and so, so true, you know?
beautiful song...what a special piece, poet/man!
and a thank you for this, sir, ah, yes!

glowing (Poetry) - 7/17/2006 9:54:35 PM
god, richard, thank you...
this is so much a beautiful, oh so very beautiful piece, exposing the pain, naked and all too much as human as one can be...
you've expressed both the naked raw hurt/pain/need as well as that extraodinary memory of hope-- that moon, oh yes, my friend...it was and Is yet still your soul glowing...
I could cry...you've opened up here and given so much and in the most beautifully poetic way, your Imagery is so in itself masterful and still the tiny specks we are who so long fo love and home and hope shines through, glows and gives and gives us all a most special glimpse into your gifts as a writer and into the person, unafraid to share the pain and the guts and the whole, whole of one-- you, yes, and yet what a gift as you make one feel, here so not alone...
I am humbled by the writing and moved by your words all too much, sigh...
loneliness is dark and still those 'silver stars
Thank YOU for this, god it is among your best...
and it hurts and glows at the same time...
oh, damn, how ...well, this just got to me as you can see...
bravo and grazie bene YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

i understand, in my way, this piece, all too much...
it hurts, it just...it, this somehow speaks to me of all too much the pain of yes, the toxic dreams/life oh...of the damned cursed loneliness and the all too hard to fight demons...
and yes, richard, how much truth here for you know/have seen all too much inside the nightmare and it is lonely ...
all so very much far too lonely
god, you, you also just
know, i don't know, this hurts badly, it is just so real, and no...
no bell tolls when this is the dream...
better and better 'dreams' wished to you and all ...yes, me too, who have ever been through anything like this...
just, you...oh, ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
you make others perhaos feel so not alone for a moment, baring your whole ....
thanks, you, yes....
falling for you (Poetry) - 7/5/2006 8:48:09 PM
i nearly cried, how long it has been to feel like this and god, richard, not only so felt, but so beautifully written...
you make one 'fall' with you into the arms and bed, yes, curled up like a child, feeling at long last home, if even for
god, this is so beautiful and more...much here, so few perfectly chosen words and it is just, again, painfully beautiful, so so...oh, i am at a loss...
i love this
written from/with the heart
yes? Oh yes...
you, heart man
so full of the search, the dream, the pain...
sighs here in such a peace...
and such a longing fulfilled in this dream of a piece!
i am again, well...oh to feel this way, it...just, this is a keeper, mia amico

VERY NICE WELL WRITTEN WORK.
broken heart (Poetry) - 6/28/2006 5:09:44 PM
To be the best we can be is the gift we give in a relationship. You have to love yourself before you can love anyone else. Gets to be a drag otherwise.
An excellent work of love lost.

The search for the meaning of life and the exploration of self is never done. Poetry is a good way to search. Pity poetry isn't more appreciated by publishers.
62806 (Poetry) - 6/28/2006 5:06:04 PM
Another good work from you, Richard.
Poetry is a good catharsis for the soul.

Ah Richard, so deeply powerful and haunting, this just got to me today, the past can haunt us, torment us, but in the end, the sun will rise and give us another chance at life. Excellent and so very poignant poetry.
monster that i am (Poetry) - 6/25/2006 3:12:32 PM
When I know the "monster that i am" I can correct the course of my life and set the map of my angelical destiny... This "monster that i am" thought me a wise lesson... I enjoyed the reading of this poetic grand.
I salute You, Poet.

The past is just that. I only know you as you have worked hard to become, a very gentle, thoughtful, thinking, embracing soul.
You can't embrace the new paradigm unless you let go of the old.
broken heart (Poetry) - 6/21/2006 4:58:09 PM
amazing, god, what a piece, richard, every line just...yes, this is lost love and so beautifully written, it...oh, this was love-- and to lose it, well, this--this Is a broken heart...and it is so softly, eloquently painfully well written...and more...
so many lines, every one, god so felt, so much conveyed in few words that ring so true...damn, beautifully done, richard...
it is, again amazing, dear you!
monster that i am (Poetry) - 6/21/2006 3:16:57 PM
no monster, you...god, yes, it feels that way, i do know, and this, richard, painful, and dammit, you do know all too much that has been ingrained in you over years and years of the violence, yet your heart, spirit soar as you learn, and give, 'teach
mi amico, as f'ing dark, hard, painful and black-red raging pain, there, i know, i know...still, you keep on and on, seeking that solace that huge heart deserves...
piece hurts, it, it is painful and i know, in my way how it feels to be so 'lost', 'alone' and...well, you've opened your guts/heart up raw/beautifully here, still leaving us with the goodness you are!
it DOES live within you...the monster is the pain and memory and raging pain is so unbearable, yet, here you come through and give...
'all too human that you are'!!!!!!!!!!!!!
dammit, here ----> (((((r.)))))))

this hurts, richard, i too much relate and this is so brutally honest in its all too human raw open words of how much it takes just to be who one is, you know?
some amazing lines...
those miles/'corpse-like' and 'guessed at without clues' and just wow, painfully too good...yes, i, too search still and it becomes so hard sometimes to go on again and again, searching, but thank you...just, well, because...
piece this is!

ah, don't know, its love also...this makes me feel for you, my dear poet and i relate and also seek in my own way...and the 'dream' we chase, sigh...
oh for it to come to rest within, you know?
for it to come true, at least enough to salve the wounds we, many of us carry, in many ways...
yes, you give and may you get what will make your heart calm and more...

To Be "Nifty" Fifty AGAIN
The most Uplifting time of life
You turned fifty and confused
As you take another look
You realize to be uplifted
You might just have to re-cooperate
Changes need to be made
You will have to think about
A “Cross your Heart” bra
Or maybe a “Cross your Knees”
To lift the bust
Some “Step-in” panties
To lift that stomach
And Oh boy some
To lift your husband
To please your sex drive
But the visit to the doctor
Could be a pain in the ass
If he walks in with that glass
If you laugh to much
You pee in your pants
Cough in church
Your ass start to sing along
And with the slightest breeze
You start to sneeze
And you poop in D-Minor
Oh it is so “Uplifting” to be fifty
Just remember when you sneeze
Cross your knees and squeeze
For the Most Uplifting
Melodic sounds of fifty

beautiful, oh, and if only that distance could be traveled, sigh...
so that your 'soul' and that heart might really 'feel' all, all, body, spirit, heart...
loneliness, oh, how loving can heal the heart and more...
this is like a song of loving and longing and...it is a song from the heart, w/the simplicty of a Country-like song, yet with so much feeling, y'know?
so well written, dear you, richard...
it sighs with that soul of yours and sings out and well...beautiful, so beautifully, longingingly expressed, and as with you, ever so human...makes one want Omaha to be--for real, there, distance gone and more...
ah, r. poor, you poetman seeking...
will lay close
to its comfort for real
gone and closeness, beauty felt ....
