A very good and touching write. I so enjoyed it. Mary
Escape From the Shadows (Short Story) - 4/5/2014 2:09:38 PM
Glad to know you enjoyed my short stories. I'll send to you my comments about yours, which I'll read for sure even when I'm really busy with my own translations. To tell you the truth, I let my eyes look at the last paragraphs after reading the two at the beginning. I will not forget. Leopoldo.
Maid of Maidstone (Short Story) - 3/21/2014 3:24:33 AM
I love this beautiful love story between Margery and Beirheart. The way they've met was like a fairytale come true.
Ancient One (Short Story) - 3/19/2014 9:33:06 AM
What a touching story this is. You really are a great author. I so enjoy your writings. Keep it up! Mary
Maid of Maidstone (Short Story) - 3/18/2014 6:36:04 AM
I really like June Marshall's comment. And I agree with her about 'even for a single encounter.' Budd, you fleshed this encounter out beautifully. The scene where Beirheart first sees Margery, clumsily bumping into a pedestrian...that smitten awkward elation -- you paint it alive. Your storytelling here contains much gentleness and the observant nature of Beirheart may well be his 'creator's.' Samples of that sensitivity are: “I doubt there is much your eyes miss, sir." AND "Not meaning any offence, of course, but you are quite an intense observer as I can see." The flow of relationship beaty is also painted in lovely colors: "She felt a pang of slight embarrassment mixed with her own interest after so short a meeting." AND "They found they laughed much together and easily at even small insignificant things." AND "That coming home feeling they called it," AND
"..feel the extreme warmth of the other rising." Harlequin novels would need to take a seat behind your romance fiction, I think, Budd. ~~ Diana
Dutch's Duck (Short Story) - 3/18/2014 5:52:27 AM
Very well-told story, Budd. It should teach me a lesson not to read the comments before the article, because Ron's mention of 'twins' tipped me to Paul's identity in this story. Fun to read this account. ~~ Diana
Maid of Maidstone (Short Story) - 3/17/2014 3:27:50 PM
Well done Budd. It's a beautiful love story.
Escape From the Shadows (Short Story) - 3/16/2014 7:06:57 AM
Great story, Budd!! I love the happy ending!!
Escape From the Shadows (Short Story) - 3/13/2014 6:31:23 AM
Budd, this was a terrific story. You moved through stages of this character's life so well, using specifics, a writing tool that always delivers: "He and his sister slept in beds in the same room with the dining table and refrigerator." The manner in which the boy threw the knife in the opposite direction...I could just picture the frustration of a youth not being understood at all. There is poetry in the romance (even the unrequited romance) "there was a spark but it did not burn true , in no time at all she was seeing someone else when he wasn’t around and the hurt felt like a raging fire." Hurt like a raging fire. Excellent. "set their mothers so much knowing they both were returning to “The Nam”, that on their second extension they spent their leave in Australia." That sentence surely can be felt by me, being a mother and imagining my son doing that very thing. This part...."he had too many interests that they did not care for especially;" trumpets 'not being understood,' for who would fault someone for being too interested, amazing example to place in this story. As is: “Who do you think is ever going to read something you write”. The very quote itself paints the pain of this storyline. And what a luscious wrap up (the end the way you wrote it) of a laundry list of tragedy for this character...and I'm happy the story ends this way..for my own sake in that by the end of this reading, I truly 'care' about this man. Lovely end: "the beauty in her eyes, that symphony he heard as she spoke those first words," and "the feel of her as he put his arms around her waist" A worthwhile piece of literature and an extraordinarily-full story (perhaps six lifetimes in one), based in truth or tale. ~~ Diana

Splendid write. Thank you for sharing.

Escape From the Shadows (Short Story) - 3/3/2014 9:26:53 AM
At first, describing childhood, there were many little things, even though I lived very far from Oklahoma and Texas, that were very similar to my experience. Especially the rural relatives and experiences. Except my father was not mean to me and I always had friends besides my twin brother.
As I read further, all I could think of was that you were writing your autobiography in the third person. Having just completed my autobiography in the first person, I thought it quite strange, until I realized how shy you are, and that's why you do not want to reveal that it is your life in this story. If I'm wrong, please forgive me and right here make a comment stating that I'm wrong or write and ask me to remove this part of my comment.
As usual, I have found a few typos that need to be corrected before further publishing:
He had "done" nothing that day. The local boys had to assert themselves "on to" both new guys [this sentence is a bit awkward and can be easily rewritten]. He was "sitting" by her bed. His "mother's" stepdad).… They were parked on the road [as they were--delete] for hours. (His "father's" father). " mumbley peg". "MPs" (the plural of MP is not possessive, requiring an apostrophe). The company office (?) asked him. I stopped here because I was running into too many small errors. You need to get this further edited if you are going to submit it for publishing.
I recommend that you use dialogue and quotes anytime anyone is speaking during the narrative. It will make the story much more realistic then unquoted, indirect he said, she said.
Escape From the Shadows (Short Story) - 3/2/2014 4:07:24 PM
I'm glad that after all of the sorrow he had experienced that he found someone who made him happy. Love makes everything O.K..

Pride (Short Story) - 2/28/2014 8:18:49 PM
HIS LIFE CHANGED WHEN HE WAS WISE ENOUGH TO SURRENDER HIS 'PRIDE' AND ACCEPT THE FACT THAT HIS 'TIME' HAD PASSED...HE WAS NO LONGER ABLE TO BE KING OF MANY BUT HE WAS STILL VERY VALUABLE AS THE KING OF AN INDULGING FEW. TO BE OR NOT TO BE...THAT IS THE QUESTION, INDEED. EXCELLENT, BUD. THIS IS GOING INTO MY LIBRARY. THANKS FOR SHARING. LOVE, BLESSINGS AND FAITH...JOYCE * HIS INSPIRATIONS
OUTLANDER Reprisal (Short Story) - 2/10/2014 11:27:39 AM
Hi there Bud, you are a wonderful writer/story teller. You make the adventure so entertaining and I feel as if I am a part of it. Keep up the great work. Looking forward to more of you stories.
OUTLANDER Reprisal (Short Story) - 2/6/2014 10:33:06 AM
The story continues to be interesting, especially about the desert. I like your title, but there is a problem. I remember seeing a movie called "Outlander." Outlander was the first book in writer Diana Gabaldon's series, written in 1991. You can't publish a story or book using the same name without confusion with her series. See if you can come up with some name that will be just as inviting, but not in conflict with any previous hero's name.
I'm still finding a few small errors. The way you describe people in the world's making changes in direction or changing position often is awkward. I didn't note any and probably should have. Here are a few more.
As the conversations "continued,…" "Lore" of the stone… "Too" wide a track. At the "sun's" zenith. the attackers "fled" back into the night. How could they start a fire in the desert with No fuel? Each "man's" more serious… The fire they had "set" just before leaving.
OUTLANDER Reprisal (Short Story) - 2/5/2014 4:17:54 PM
Still enjoying it. Nicely done.
OUTLANDER Pursuit (Short Story) - 2/5/2014 1:22:25 PM
You are very thoughtful, Budd, to have written this story! Well done!
OUTLANDER Pursuit (Short Story) - 2/2/2014 9:10:21 AM
I agree. This is a really great tale, and I love the dire wolves too.
OUTLANDER Pursuit (Short Story) - 1/24/2014 11:16:29 AM
This is a great write and a great story, love it. Way to go Budd
OUTLANDER Pursuit (Short Story) - 1/20/2014 9:00:31 AM
Love the interaction with wolves. Such magnificent animals deserve a high level of regard and respect.
This just reaches a whole new level with every episode.
OUTLANDER Pursuit (Short Story) - 1/20/2014 8:22:48 AM
This is so interesting to follow and always leaves me wanting to know more. I love Darma and the names of her pups so much.

YOU ARE RIGHT, OF COURSE. BUT ITS BETTER NOW THEN IT WAS IN 2008. STILL NOT PERFECT AND I ADMIT WE HAVE A LONG WAYS TO GO, BUT GOD KNOWS ITS NOT AS BAD FOR VETS AS IT USED TO BE. I'M THE MOTHER OF A VET, SO I DO TAKE THIS SITUATION PERSONALLY. THANKS FOR SHARING, BUDDY. LOVE, BLESSINGS AND FAITH...JOYCE * HIS INSPIRATIONS
Veterans Lament (Poetry) - 7/13/2015 5:18:52 AM
You are so right Budd, let us honor those who keep us safe, so we shall never forget the sacrifice they make for us. Some do not return, others without limbs and bruised souls. Praise to all of them...
Veterans Lament (Poetry) - 6/1/2015 3:21:33 PM
Nor will I dear Budd... Very nicely written! If everyone felt as we do this would be a better world.
Blessings and hugs!

Great write Budd,and thanks for sharing with us here in the Den.
As far as I know, every worthwhile writer has emulated other great writers before him/her,as with any other art form. We may borrow words from here or there,but we lay them on the page in our unique way.

Dreamy moments well-shared through your verses, Budd. Thank you! Love and peace to you,

A most apt and timely sharing, Budd. Love and peace to you,
Veterans Lament (Poetry) - 11/17/2014 10:20:46 AM
Great write Budd,and I too honor and salute veterans. Each Thanksgiving and Christmas(and throughout the year) I, along with a few friends, prepare meals and gifts for veterans who live in a nearby veteran's compound.
Thank you for sharing,and continued success.

indeed, i do ... especially my relatives who died in the Revolutionary War, in the Civil War and my father who served in WW 2 as a pilot as well as my son-in-law who served 2 years in special forces and received 2 purple hearts ...
good poem, mr,nelson
Veterans Lament (Poetry) - 11/13/2014 1:34:31 PM
Yes, honor our vets, and care for them also.

I don't see this as a lament. Otherwise, it's beautiful.
Veterans Lament (Poetry) - 11/12/2014 6:41:48 AM
This is a great poem...we do not honor those who served our country enough.
Veterans Lament (Poetry) - 11/12/2014 6:39:52 AM
All the men in my family were veterans. I have nothing but the utmost respect for those who are serving and for those who have served as my children and grandchildren were taught to have as well. You have stated it all so well here in your write.
Veterans Lament (Poetry) - 11/12/2014 4:05:59 AM
What a phenomenal write Budd. Remember and honor them we should and for always.
Veterans Lament (Poetry) - 11/11/2014 5:14:06 PM
an excellent Write Budd
you hit it on the head
we must teach our youth the reaspect
needed for for our Vets, the ones that return
and those that left their souls in a battle field
Peace be with you
Veterans Lament (Poetry) - 11/11/2014 3:27:44 PM
An interesting confluence of modern language ("sans tickertape and confetti") and Shakespearean lyric ("our people yore who honored those"). Trying to bridge the old and new in one piece is ok but perhaps continuity is preferable. Nonetheless, your message is intact and touching. All vets (I am one) desire America's veneration, back-slaps, and thanks. Enjoyed.
Veterans Lament (Poetry) - 11/11/2014 2:42:32 PM
You have called it like it is, Budd. The goddamn liberals are sending this country on a one trip ticket to hell.

Awww I know the feeling. But you know they say that reading makes a good writer better. Keep reading, and keep writing, because you must..just as a bird must sing.
Thief of Words (Poetry) - 10/10/2014 9:08:25 AM
So glad you can write and keep posting here, your words mean lots.

Looking at these words you write,
You state you read for your insight.
Unbeknownst to you we love your write,
Stay on the path it gives us sight.
Don't stay so long from authorsden,
We love you and need you my dear friend!
Hugs always to you dear Budd...
Closing the Door (Poetry) - 8/29/2014 4:10:07 AM
Many of us must stand back and close the door...
I have done it more than once in my lifetime...
But it was a good thing, for once closure comes
happiness can begin...

Can't have readers with out writers , so write what you will so we can read!
Thief of Words (Poetry) - 6/18/2014 11:27:18 AM
GREAT poetic thoughts that are both true and overdue! One of the best professors in the USA wrote a book about teaching students. His first rule is to beg, borrow and steal anything worthwhile that will help you to make it throughout the year. Now you know that people do, but don't have the guts to admit it. I usually thank the person for the ideas they give me but I seldom ask permission from them unless it's a direct quote. If that is stealing then I am going to hell man!!
Thief of Words (Poetry) - 6/10/2014 7:19:46 PM
I sense that the den (as I knew it for awhile) is re-assembling. That is exciting. Patrick
Thief of Words (Poetry) - 6/10/2014 10:38:25 AM
Would that i could but say words half as well
or simply stay away without the need.
But alas i can't, so i"ll read my fill
and steal these words of verse to feed my greed.
- Wordsmithing to compete with the Masters, Budd! I know EXACTLY how you feel and my study, stuffed with books read and unread, is my delight. Excellent. xx
Thief of Words (Poetry) - 6/8/2014 7:45:36 PM
WOW, Budd, you have come such a long way since last I had the chance to read you...this has real meaning to me too...enjoyed...e
Thief of Words (Poetry) - 6/8/2014 12:37:28 PM
Such humility in your splendid words, Budd!
Thief of Words (Poetry) - 6/8/2014 3:50:08 AM
I just 'stole' in here to read this, and it's pretty good.
Thief of Words (Poetry) - 6/7/2014 6:05:12 AM
How sweet yet true. That's why I 'steal' here whenever I can too.
Thief of Words (Poetry) - 6/7/2014 5:46:03 AM
Really funny, but who can kill truth, but truth! Loud and clear the truth is here!
Thief of Words (Poetry) - 6/7/2014 3:35:21 AM
as always, enjoyed the read, good one
Thief of Words (Poetry) - 6/7/2014 1:11:59 AM
lovely write Budd , Do feel you presence and look forward to your stolen words!jk
Thief of Words (Poetry) - 6/6/2014 5:13:38 PM
Welcome back Budd! Glad that you're back. You own the words as you are such a gifted author. Nice write.
Thief of Words (Poetry) - 6/6/2014 3:59:10 PM
....soooooo good to "hear" you back, Budd and...to know
that you..."creep into this treasury of such wondrous
expressions of thoughts"...Don't think you "steal the words"
...just creating your own imagery...onto your readers mind.
You capture in your poetic lines and stanzas...the fleeting
moment...evoking...ad hoc...an experience of your own imagination
and personal feeling...catering to readers senses...
Each line of your poem...forms words-image-collage and
the feel...all images are equally important...immortal
and static like a paint. You can "steal these words"
but you never steal the idea of individual elements
arranged in poets-specific way...to express/deliver/
In this sense, it is like...en Plein Air weekend painting
where...7-10 artists are looking at the same landscape
and producing an individual master-piece...no two oils
the same...true creation...
Thank you Budd.

Thief of Words (Poetry) - 6/6/2014 10:54:01 AM
Ah hah! So you're the one stealing my verse so that I can't write it when I sit down to do it. I think I'll steal a few of these words to get even. ;-)

As Kris kristofferson said, Lets all steal each others songs.
It's great to have you back.
Thief of Words (Poetry) - 6/6/2014 6:57:57 AM
I suppose it should be said as you just did that most of our poems and thoughts are triggered by others who have used certain words that inspire our own. They are like objects hidden in a picture that one must discover yet they are words of inspiration and thought for those who write them in yet another version.
Closing the Door (Poetry) - 6/5/2014 5:54:09 AM
Yes, very intriguing, even prophetic. And I enjoyed the previously. written reviews. Had me wondering about your observation or perhaps introspection. I could totally relate.

... sounds like attending a Poetry Workshop where you are, at times, not understood and, at times, all chiming together. It's amazing how bonding such highs and lows can be. I like the mystery attached to this one, Budd. xx
Closing the Door (Poetry) - 4/29/2014 6:31:01 AM
Very, very powerful write. What reaches out the largest for me is the line: "Spoke what he should ignore." There is a vast universe wrapped inside that one line alone. ~~ Diana
Closing the Door (Poetry) - 4/28/2014 11:30:21 PM
it does sound mysterious which i liked. i have my own interpretation patterned on my life. and the poem gave a certain type of understanding.
Closing the Door (Poetry) - 4/26/2014 8:46:37 AM
Hoping this is fictitious in nature and not a swan song farewell.

A Heart not Blind (Poetry) - 4/25/2014 9:39:55 PM

Closing the Door (Poetry) - 4/24/2014 8:50:44 PM
A fine diss, sir! I'd hate to be this person. Very humbling... or humiliating.
Closing the Door (Poetry) - 4/24/2014 7:06:57 AM
Wondering who the "he" is. Is it you or me?
Closing the Door (Poetry) - 4/23/2014 3:29:54 PM
...mystery "He"...has a right to think
unthinkable...to express it and act on "His"
thoughts...exploring all options...and "His" own
ideas...Who knows what the unexplored contains
until...it has been ...eeeer...explored all.
Thank you Budd for sharing your great poem.
Closing the Door (Poetry) - 4/23/2014 1:36:41 PM
Yes the poem seems like a mystery to me as we'll but it was good
Closing the Door (Poetry) - 4/23/2014 7:52:27 AM
This one is quite mysterious. Leaving the need to try to figure out who "he" is. Like, for example, could it be you? Or could it be me? Whoever he is, I'm not sure that an "Adieu is due."
Closing the Door (Poetry) - 4/23/2014 2:39:19 AM
When one door closes, hopefully another one opens, and I think we should always enter it if it does.
Closing the Door (Poetry) - 4/22/2014 5:26:24 PM
Somehow a thread of understanding may be all we can grasp. After all we are all going through so much stuff at such an incredible speed. All I know it's better to learn from mistakes, love and to bury any past hate. Amen
Closing the Door (Poetry) - 4/22/2014 3:15:56 PM
I don't want to make wild guess, because sometimes what we think might not be what it actually to be; so I'm just claiming that I don't know this. To be assuming something we don't know is not a good thing to do. I hope all is well with you.
Closing the Door (Poetry) - 4/22/2014 1:38:34 PM

In Ohio, the cardinal is our state bird. A lovely bird, with a lovely song.
