Sometimes that is so Jerry, but in Georgia, where we live, there are no school unions. It is not always a unions fault.

Why are the schools in America in such sad, sad shape? Politicized unions.

Kathy...excellent expressive descriptive writing. I can almost feel your pain through your words.
The actuality (not sure if this is the right word) is over, but the memory will never leave. I still see my second husband, the same as you see Laura, only 32 years later since he "got lost", in the sheets of the ICU. Only he remained forever lost in the white sheets except in the memories of those who loved him. But more powerful then that are the beautiful happy memories of him such as walking through the woods, a happy time for us. There are many other quiet times that I wish to remember. In wishing so he remains in my heart forever. Think only of your last happy stanza of LOST in the Sheets. I call it a stanza because it is happy music to your heart if you let it play.

This takes me back to when my parents would go to check on their stocks and bonds. Thank God they were never "taken"!

Oh how I know this feeling Kathy! I have eight children and 12 grandchildren and it seems like yesterday they were babies...Sometimes I even get a panic feeling from it! Old age...hahaha
Thank you for this beautiful poem!

How wonderful! "Dear Lord, when you called home the brother that I'd learned to love it took a while but now I see he's just a little further up that road to you than me."........I was missing my brother who passed away three years ago really badly today.....hmmmm...then I read this. Coincidence? I think not.

Thank you so much everyone. As an update, Ben was released from the hospital today. They have not found the cause of his amnesia. This last time he lost 12 hours of his life, but it has happened before and will happen again. They have not been able to say why this is happening and may never know. They do promise me he is safe. It is not that he is not with it at the time, only that he cannot make new memories of it. Thank sso much for your warm, loving support! Be well, Kathy
A Mother's Selfish Plea (Poetry) - 9/29/2012 10:48:59 AM
It is ironic that I just wrote a poem about the remarkable attributes of the hummingbird. One of those is its ability to return thousands of miles to the same nesting sites every year. A remarkable memory for a very small brain.
I don't think the poem is self-serving any more than many others here. It states a concern that many have when their loved ones are dying around them. They seek outside help and declare their loss in poetry. Let's hope that Hummingbird will return and you will suffer no more loss for a long time.

Love this one, as a grandparent of four (who takes turns one at a time having sleepovers every weekend) I can so relate to it. I walk around and often pick up little socks, tops, toys etc that they forgot to take home with them and yes, it always brings a smile.

Maggie Mae (Poetry) - 9/23/2012 10:55:01 AM
I'm so glad you've written about your lost child. I've never had one to lose. But based on the loss I have had, I can see how devastating it must have been. Now it is time to write your heart out about it.
Maggie Mae (Poetry) - 9/23/2012 6:08:30 AM
Yes, indeed this was/is a blood-letting. I understand the need to do this, I do my own share of blood-letting. The novelist in me needs to know the whole story, but what you have given me is enough to set my Muse to considering different possibilities. I liked the hell out of this Maggie Mae condensed saga.
Maggie Mae (Poetry) - 9/23/2012 5:57:32 AM
Such power in your words here to evoke both love and loss at their most overwhelming. And how they travel together through all of our days hand-in-hand. I pray for those loose ends to be tied and the yawning gap that now exists to be someday filled so as to bring you restored and complete with your Maggie Mae again. May you each be held in the circle of God's love and beneficent provision until that time. The aching is palpable, but equally the reliance on trust. Thank you for sharing and baring so that we may seek to bear with you. Bless you xx

Precious dedication in the arms of appreciation for your mate, Darrel, Kathy. A spiritual slant is an age-old theme coupled with love is one that will always draw readers. It's very visual. I see a heart carved in an aspen tree with the initials K + D. It's good to read uplifting poetry like this. Blessed Be.

Kathy this is just a wonderful expression of
that which you fight within. All have thoughts

prevails and the most loved who sits right next
to you is there to uplift all you go through.

Hummingbird (Poetry) - 9/8/2012 4:39:45 PM
Kathy, this poem tells it all. I look so forward to my hummingbirds every year, I put out my feeders and wait for their return. I enjoy them all summer and now its nearly time for them to leave. How I will miss them. Its the same way with family, they are only young once and the teenage years , O how busy they are. My sweet Granddaughter who is 14 now all of a sudden has a zillion friends and not as much time for her Nana. I miss her. But grow up she must, its the cycle of life. I will take what little time she gives me and be grateful.
Blessings and love,

Hummingbird (Poetry) - 9/4/2012 1:31:09 PM
This poem deftly creates the momentum and chagrin of catching the wind, all these forms of fleeting treasure. The emotion comes through in these lines as honest and strong. My favorite lines are: "Sweet boy, eldest, my son/Have some coffee, don't run. Genuine. ~~ Diana

Hummingbird (Poetry) - 9/2/2012 6:19:18 AM
Just like the song, "And the Cats in the cradle with a silver spoon, little boy blue and the man in the moon" by Harry Chapin... But it is a faster moving world now and our children (most not all of them) most just as fast as that Hummingbird. Does not mean they love us any less, just the times. And when they are parents just like we are and their little one takes flight, only then will they understand :)
Love and Light

Friends bring blessings to Life,
as You have so loving said *Kathy*
Always to cherish in one's heart
Turn the Tide (Poetry) - 8/31/2012 11:13:46 AM
You said a lot with this poem that I like. We do have a great country, but we are not isolated the way that George Washington wanted us to be, but an active part in a much larger world that we can't control no matter how hard we try. We also made up of fifty states that we call upon whenever we think our federal government is misbehaving. I think everyone has to start thinking globally and acting locally in that direction. Your poem comes along way towards saying that.
God may be willing, but it is we that have to do it.
Turn the Tide (Poetry) - 8/30/2012 2:06:55 PM
It is forever changing
And I for one do not like mudslinging
All I want to know is, what can you do
for our country.
Love and Light
Sister Friend (Poetry) - 8/30/2012 10:14:02 AM
A wonderful poem of friendship. Let's hope that the message gets through.
Sister Friend (Poetry) - 8/30/2012 4:18:32 AM
How wonderful, in this busy world
we often get taken away and although
we do not forget friends, we don't
tell them often enough what they mean
Marvelous tribute to Geri :)
Love and Light
Sister Friend (Poetry) - 8/30/2012 3:38:12 AM
You did good. Reaching out before it was too late.
I Passed Without It (Poetry) - 8/24/2012 1:55:03 PM
It's a wonderful thing when we can accept our own imperfection. Lovely poem.
The Little Things (Poetry) - 8/24/2012 3:26:49 AM
I love this poem! My husband is constanly snoring...but then again...so do I! When we were younger, I would get so annoyed by it; however, as time has gone by, I have found ways to plug out and be thankful that he is here and I can here him snore! "Security" like you said is "peace" in your life. I like to think of it as a nice, warm, blanket! :-)
I Passed Without It (Poetry) - 8/21/2012 5:22:35 PM
Now I lie me down to sleep.
I have done the best I can
with today, but dear Lord
if I wake another day, I
promise to try harder....
For You *Kathy* in light
of your poem..Lady Vivian
I Passed Without It (Poetry) - 8/21/2012 1:18:22 AM
Just to say that you "passed without it," is perfection enough. A skirmish won in the war of life ain't nothing to be ashaed of.
I Passed Without It (Poetry) - 8/20/2012 5:44:57 PM
Perfection has never been mine either, but as you do I strive for it. As Human Beings none of us is perfect, but once we get to Heaven all will change. I like the song, One Day At A Time. I do the best I can and leave the rest to God.
Many blessings and love,
Grandchild (Poetry) - 8/20/2012 3:23:50 PM
My kind of poem,Kathy. Cute and clever.
Grandchild (Poetry) - 8/20/2012 1:05:02 PM
Brilliant summation, Kathy! You have included such telling images here that I got the whole picture in these short lines - and felt every minute. You are surely blessed... I can't wait to find my little pots of gold one day at the end of my as-yet-single rainbows! Thank you for your visit to my pages recently. Kate xx
Grandchild (Poetry) - 8/20/2012 12:51:13 PM
Cute and Cudly when young..but
ever so true as in your poem..
Equally adorable when grown,
respectful of love thru aging
Grandchild (Poetry) - 8/20/2012 8:51:25 AM
Adorable, Kathy--the kids and the poem!
Grandchild (Poetry) - 8/19/2012 4:43:19 PM
Beautifully rendered. I have one grandson who I have never seen. We have communicated sparingly via the Internet. It must be a wonderful feeling, everyone says so. I missed out.
Food Chain (Poetry) - 8/19/2012 4:25:16 PM
Sounds great...be there soon.:)
Many blessings and love,
Grandchild (Poetry) - 8/19/2012 4:20:24 PM
I know the feeling! I have 4 that I see regularly, sometimes they spend the night. I have 3 I don't see. Grandchildren are the light that shines for me. I have a poem, Brooke, that I wrote about my lovely 14 yr. old granddaughter. She's growing up and looking at 'boys' now. She just started high school this year! Nana's going to worry about her!
Many blessings and love,
Friend (Poetry) - 8/19/2012 5:40:49 AM
May you be blessed for your compassion and love.
Mom and Dad (Poetry) - 8/19/2012 5:39:20 AM
So beautiful. I have also lost my parents. My Mama died at 39 yrs.old by a hit run driver. She left behind 8 kids. Since then my Dad died and a brother. It hurts even now. It always will. Kathy, you have amazing talent. I am tracking you.
The Little Things (Poetry) - 8/19/2012 5:35:37 AM
Yes, I agree. Its the 'Little things' that touches our hearts.
Squash Lunch (Poetry) - 8/19/2012 5:32:58 AM
You could have saved me some! I love squash! Sounds better the way you fixed it!
Afterglow (Poetry) - 8/19/2012 5:30:54 AM
I absolutely love a thunderstorm! God's glory at work!
Friend (Poetry) - 8/19/2012 5:29:23 AM
Darnell and Kathy,
I am so sorry about your friend. I pray God will give her the strength she needs. Kathy, I lost my best friend to cancer years ago. I still miss her so much. My comfort is knowing she was saved and she's with Jesus. No more pain, only joy.
Many blessings to you,
Friend (Poetry) - 8/18/2012 9:45:07 PM
To bereave ahead of time is such a painful mirage, one that not only takes a physical and mental toll but takes away from the time we have left with those we care for, yet as humans, how can we not mourn a life of borrowed time, lovely piece indeed.
Friend (Poetry) - 8/18/2012 8:12:03 PM
Much sadness on a primrose path
*Kathy* when one loses a friend
feeling Your Love
Afterglow (Poetry) - 8/18/2012 7:23:38 PM
Ah! *Kathy* the rush from the
storm, and the quiet aftermath
is certainly worth your writing
Squash Lunch (Poetry) - 8/18/2012 7:18:13 PM
*Kathy* You had me at "No one else*
making it even more delicious to eat
the whole dish...
Friend (Poetry) - 8/18/2012 7:07:46 PM
What a heart-rending poem...these must be your true feelings, because they feel so sincere. I feel the ache of your heart as your friend draws near to departure of this earthly life.
God will stay near to you, even as He is now guiding you and giving you strength.
with love and prayers,
Friend (Poetry) - 8/18/2012 6:41:36 PM
It is not just friends we fear to lose but all those whom we love and that also includes ourselves when we reach the end of the spectrum where another day is not promised us. It is truly a loss for us either way. Great write.
Afterglow (Poetry) - 8/18/2012 2:34:42 PM
Even after the killer storm we had back in late June that killed my awning and poer for 8 days, I still LOVE t-storms...good write...e
Squash Lunch (Poetry) - 8/18/2012 12:11:47 PM
With such a lovely smell, it must have tasted well even with out any meat therein!
Squash Lunch (Poetry) - 8/18/2012 12:06:24 PM
Kathy, this is beyond witty, it is delightful and delicious. In my eyes, this is no prose composition, but poetry, poetry -- not just the rhyming line ends, but the joyous choice of vocabulary: "gourmet troll" and "...root and gourdish mixture" and "fall like offering" and "gyp".. these are marvelous. I identify with the nuance of 'private pleasure' here, too.....no one to criticize (when I am alone) and the way you build your celebration and appreciation of your 'yellow squash and onions', even adding an extra 'o' on 'ooh' gives the reader the extent of your glee. I love that. I love this piece of writing. It twinkles!! ~~ Diana
Squash Lunch (Poetry) - 8/18/2012 11:49:22 AM
Don't need meat if the rest is bountiful, and it sounded like it might just have been.
Food Chain (Poetry) - 8/17/2012 6:19:00 PM
Perhaps a vegetable plate
*Kathy*..will do just fine
Grist for the Mill of Government (Poetry) - 8/17/2012 6:00:09 PM
Sad state of affairs *Kathy*
alas..I share your devotion
Food Chain (Poetry) - 8/17/2012 9:23:33 AM
A nice contrast between the primal struggle of the primitive hunter to obtain food and the abstract and esoteric idea of fine dining today––far removed from its bloody source.
The Little Things (Poetry) - 8/16/2012 5:18:52 PM
Wow! *Kathy* Such love and
adoration touches my heart
for All the small things..
but especially of slumber
Food Chain (Poetry) - 8/16/2012 2:20:40 PM
all sounds wonderful...bring it on...hold the meat
Food Chain (Poetry) - 8/16/2012 10:14:16 AM
. . . and THAT is the rest of the story . . .
Grist for the Mill of Government (Poetry) - 8/16/2012 5:50:49 AM
The sounds of unrest in this poem percolate with the flavor of discourse given by individuals interviewed on Bill Moyers' journal. The sounds are echoed by countless other voices, but this one poem serves to overlay those dialogues in your skillfully- written diagnoses, prognoses and treatment. "....sadly dedicated lies" packs conviction and compassion in one bite. Excising the truth --- what a clinical spin this is, delivering the slice by using the word 'cleanly', which offers connotation associated with planned surgery: removing the truth tumor. That is a titanium illumination. Besides all of that....the music in the sound of this read aloud is utterly magnificent. ~~ Diana
Grist for the Mill of Government (Poetry) - 8/16/2012 5:21:10 AM
Jerry I am so afraid you are right...we have to find a way to educate those who don't know and those who come behind us.
Grist for the Mill of Government (Poetry) - 8/16/2012 4:34:50 AM
In fifty years or less America will become a third world country.
Reach Out and Touch Someone (Poetry) - 8/15/2012 9:13:31 PM
And a fitting tribute *Kathy*
every time the torch is passed
The Little Things (Poetry) - 8/15/2012 7:49:55 PM
Hi Darrell and Kathy!
I really like the flow of this evening thought. It feels as peaceful as listening to the rhythmic breathing and the security that it known in that. Thank you for sharing this. Indeed, it's the little things that mean the most.
I Missed a Dream (Poetry) - 8/15/2012 2:40:53 AM
all of the twists and turns, delays and fears is what has made you the poet that you are today. in other words...poets are 'chisled' out of life. thanks for share...asa
The World is my Oyster???? (Poetry) - 8/13/2012 8:29:36 PM
The real world *Kathy* needs
wives so intune from the
oyster to the pearl
Mom and Dad (Poetry) - 8/13/2012 8:23:52 PM
Such Beautiful Love *Kathy*
you must have inherited...
Reach Out and Touch Someone (Poetry) - 8/13/2012 11:23:45 AM
A beautifully thought out and composed poem. We all stand on the shoulders of giants.
The World is my Oyster???? (Poetry) - 8/12/2012 8:32:03 AM
Your words inspired a limerick:
There once was a woman, a wife,
Who put up with a lot of strife.
But she kept her smile,
Knowing all the while,
What it means to enjoy one's life.
Love and best wishes,
Reach Out and Touch Someone (Poetry) - 8/12/2012 8:23:14 AM
Thoughtfully shared ideas and a fine tribute to those "creators" that have come before us and left us a legacy of art and literature etc. Thank you. Love and best wishes,
Reach Out and Touch Someone (Poetry) - 8/12/2012 8:13:20 AM
another flow of beautiful poetetic words. I would share with my poem loving sister but alas, her computer is not feeling well these days. When it is well again, I will forward this to her.
Reach Out and Touch Someone (Poetry) - 8/12/2012 7:53:59 AM
and what about this work...? it has certainly reached out and inspired me and i am sure it will do the same for others. not taking anything away from our poetical forefathers at all but just embracing the place that we as poets of this era and time sit in; we may not be well known but 'we'(you, I...others)are numbered with the 'trailblazers' of today and...for tomorrow. There were and are many extraordinary but unknown stars. thanks.....asa
Reach Out and Touch Someone (Poetry) - 8/12/2012 6:55:34 AM
Yes, we owe a lot to those trailblazers, if not for them, where would be go to co-opt lines for ourselves. Haha Kidding. (Kinda) Seriously, it must have been an exciting time when the poets, et al, understood what they were doing might just change how people's thought process centuries later. I wonder if any had this opinion as they labored (and labor it surely was) flat of his back daubing paint in the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel . . .
The World is my Oyster???? (Poetry) - 8/12/2012 4:38:22 AM
Well, I can't say I fully understand, never being a wife, but I will say that I don't envy you, I hear its a hard life being a wife...e
The World is my Oyster???? (Poetry) - 8/11/2012 2:23:42 PM
such a happy feeling this piece evokes
The World is my Oyster???? (Poetry) - 8/11/2012 2:09:06 PM
I love it Kathy...what more to say??? Perhaps just keep the words flowing
The World is my Oyster???? (Poetry) - 8/11/2012 2:04:30 PM
Hah! My first wife told me it was just too much darn work being a wife. This coming from a pampered young thing.
I liked your scream into the wilds of your world here . . .
Mom and Dad (Poetry) - 8/11/2012 1:43:29 PM
Kathy, such a beautiful tribute to your parents. I know are thankful that you have returned their love in such a loving manner. I am also sure that they would not want you to be sad at their passing. Be happy Kathy, they would want this for you.
Mom and Dad (Poetry) - 8/11/2012 12:16:53 PM
I'm sorry for your loss.
Spring Morn (Poetry) - 6/10/2012 2:50:39 PM
The glum is still here
It has been raining all day
Look for morn's sunshine
Sorry, but it has been raining off and on for about a week here. Only good thing about it is the temperature has been much cooler.
Spring Morn (Poetry) - 6/10/2012 12:21:12 PM
Beauty be your imagination *Kathy*
Spring Storm (Poetry) - 6/9/2012 1:29:44 PM
