Wonderful, congratulations Shirley! ' heart bleeds raindrops at the thought of surrender like menses...' That is a wonderful thought phrase. My Best Lonnie

Shirley, Your writing style and your poems always move me. Your choice of words are so unique and neatly chronicled. I wish you the very best especially with this one that the release is so timely for Christmas. I think this book is very personal for you. Warmest Regards,

Freedom (Poetry) - 2/15/2015 8:33:07 AM
Shirley! YES! I agree with you. It's nice to have an audience, but truly it is our way of explaining ourselves to ourselves! If you use </br> you won't need the virgules (/) at the end of lines. A little html. I used to teach Shakespeare online when our high school had too many kids for the buildings to hold.

Shirley Very lovely poetry ! You are an inspiration! Happy New Year Amber

The Lotus (Poetry) - 12/28/2014 10:15:27 AM
Reminds me of that very small stone pond in front of the Egyptian Museum in Cairo. In the murky water could be seen a single lotus plant with one bloom. One small token of beauty amid the dusty square that stretched out in all directions filled with the hustle of the city. Seemingly uncaring for its worth. Ron

One Flesh (Poetry) - 11/30/2014 2:21:11 PM
This is a song of a humble soul!!

One Flesh (Poetry) - 11/30/2014 7:35:47 AM
In spite of the improbable story of a woman coming from a man's rib, there is something magical about the difference between a man and a woman, that you write so well. Lines like, "let me drink nectar from the fruit of your inclinations, "our brilliant and sensual. Your man must be very lucky to have a woman who can express herself in such beautiful ways. Ron

One Flesh (Poetry) - 11/30/2014 6:55:59 AM
An enchanting poem to an improbable story. Well done.

Divergent (Poetry) - 11/24/2014 11:32:47 AM
Certainly very brightly inspired, illuminating any darkness and casting it aside. Here on earth, we live in the shadow of such a light. It is our inspiration, but we cannot look directly at it or expose our skin to it very long. It is our eternal flame and inspiration. Ron

Divergent (Poetry) - 11/24/2014 7:02:49 AM
I love everything about this poem, the photo the way you formatted this, it shines with your light Shirley! Peace, love and light, Amber

Sleep (Poetry) - 9/16/2014 5:29:27 AM
"to the place where my dreams breathe" excellent interesting note: Thomas Edison slept 4 hours a day and Nikola Telsa slept 2 hours s day ...

Sleep (Poetry) - 9/15/2014 8:02:07 AM
Ah, sweet sleep. Fortunately I get some between bouts of waking up to nature's call. You give it a beautiful, ethereal quality just like the process, itself. I just read an article about a professor who teaches a course on Sleep and Dreams that is highly popular and his recent studies that have proven how important sleep really is for our well-being. I've known those that claim they could cheat sleep, but somehow, inherently, I knew they were wrong. Ron

Sometimes I Fly (Poetry) - 8/10/2014 11:36:04 AM
flying high above the earth/ aloof; disengaged/ embraced the rage/ displaced the rage/ sometimes I fly/ like a bird whose cage disintegrates/ pay homage to ashes/ inurned in the sky/ pay homage to my soul/ consecrated, sublime/ exhume the life entombed inside/ buried alive/ God bless the child/ exhume the life entombed inside/ God bless the child/ alas, to rise/ alas, to fly The best description of pain, and rising above pain I have ever read. Inspiring

The Poets Call (Poetry) - 6/26/2014 5:29:51 AM
"it burdens your heart'... indeed it can. what we are called to accomplish for the Most High is like a 'fire in the bones'. But it can also be as a field that flourishes and then lies fallow for a season. Your thoughts here are fully considered and flow like a pure stream. rlc

As I become older I become more optimistic... Always, Deborah

My Beloved Sons (Poetry) - 5/30/2014 3:18:51 AM
I understand, Shirley. Always, Deborah

Pessimism (Poetry) - 5/25/2014 7:30:58 AM
No doubt true, but will not beauty, trust, and love not increase our sense of wonder?

Pessimism (Poetry) - 5/24/2014 6:22:14 PM
Hurt always has an influence. How you handle it defines your pessimism. Patrick

Pessimism (Poetry) - 5/24/2014 9:32:15 AM
Yet the myths persist when one fears that there's no hope in this life, maybe there is something "over the rainbow." Ron

Pessimism (Poetry) - 5/24/2014 4:19:37 AM
Indeed a great thought and a beautiful picture displaying part of the true glory of God! Blessings to you, Shirley!

Didn't know where you were going, but great piece,light from the dark, indicating more light to come.

My Beloved Sons (Poetry) - 5/18/2014 11:52:27 AM
Gotta say it, did say it, well said. 1 of 31 people in this country are under the control of the criminal justice and parole system. Worse incarceration rate in the world.

Streams (Poetry) - 3/23/2014 6:40:57 PM
Memories however cruel Must not claim our defeat The temptation is to purge the worst But we must never cleanse the sweet Patrick

Streams (Poetry) - 3/23/2014 10:24:54 AM
Beautifully tragic except for the stranger last line which seems to ask for your sweet memories to be cleansed. I am probably misreading this… for that was not your intention. Ron

Streams (Poetry) - 3/23/2014 8:12:19 AM
Beautiful, Shirley! Always, Deborah

Truly unique and beautifully presented. I'm falling already… Ron

Love Me (Poetry) - 2/16/2014 12:41:59 PM
Truly an inspired write. It's message is one that many a fair maiden would desire. However when reading to the end the song "To dream the impossible dream" came to mind. Your devoted reader Robert

Love Me (Poetry) - 2/16/2014 11:52:33 AM
Again, a wonderful piece. You continue to get better and better. "embrace the contrasts from demure to bold/ extend your love, unconditional/ take all of me/ my sentinel" Stunning ending.

Anoint Me (Poetry) - 1/22/2014 8:26:59 AM
More alluring words I have never read. It might just get me to admit my darkest shame. But what if I have none to offer? ;-) Ron

Anoint Me (Poetry) - 1/21/2014 4:33:12 PM
This is vulnerability and desire to love wholeheartedly. I have to chuckle at "medicinal properties" of your kisses. I hope you can correct that!!! I have one criticism.. "the love that fuses we" seems a bit awkward to me. Why not use "fuses us" which would be proper grammar? I like your intro sentence, too. Connie

Anoint Me (Poetry) - 1/21/2014 2:03:41 PM
VERY PASSIONATE, I like it... Bob-

Anoint Me (Poetry) - 1/21/2014 2:01:45 PM

Detour (Poetry) - 1/13/2014 8:56:28 AM
Why am I thinking of Hillary Clinton? I believe it's already too late for her, even if she has transposed. Why do I have these kinds of daydreams in the middle of reading poetry? I don't know. When I read your poem, I know a good woman will find a way. Ron

Detour (Poetry) - 1/13/2014 12:18:43 AM
Nice reflective poetry. As for dreams, you go for it girl! Amen!

Detour (Poetry) - 1/12/2014 6:52:18 PM
I enjoyed reading your well-written poem today. It tells a true story. Never give up. Where one door cloes. Another one will open. This poem inspires one to keep the faith. Don't give up. Thanks for writing it.

You are one hell of a poet young lady. The wording is beautifully chosen and set out in meaningful tuneful order. My respect to you and your poems.

Confusion (Poetry) - 12/15/2013 4:29:25 PM
the view in the mirrors is sometimes very confusing budd

Confusion (Poetry) - 12/15/2013 4:18:27 AM
The view from outside that house of mirrors may not give you the view you want to see, but it can give you the one you need to see. Life is about choices.

Confusion (Poetry) - 12/14/2013 3:53:08 PM
Shirley, And so much more. Always, Deborah

Confusion (Poetry) - 12/14/2013 12:25:29 PM
Time to leave those mirrors of distortion behind, perhaps smash them, and view the world outside the mirrors. I think you'll find it wonderful. Ron

Surrendered (Poetry) - 2/25/2013 9:01:55 AM
Such beautiful poetic words are being missed by so many friends on the den. I feel special to have the honor to make the first comment on your "Musing" poem. On a positive note it's absolutely breathtaking! On a negative not the title, "Musing" does not give this spectacular poem any credit. I have a special message for you Shirley I will write seperately. Peace, love and blessings, John Michael

Divine Libations (Poetry) - 1/24/2013 10:33:23 AM
Wish I could find a drink that would give me that kind of feeling. Ron

We are the best and God made us.

Languishing (Poetry) - 1/16/2013 12:33:20 PM
I agree with Lonnie...invites reading without stopping. This was a cascading ascent of a poem. I especially liked: "from a fiery hearth of monotony" and the 'unabated' "by the superficiality of appearances kept/" -- what an adroit way to describe what society does on a one-to-one and a one-to-group, and a group-to-group. Excellent, Shirley ~~ Diana

Languishing (Poetry) - 1/4/2013 4:49:56 PM
Shirley....Thank you for sharing......Yes, Life indeed is in need of rest or sleep; and we grow weary. God Bless You, Deborah

Languishing (Poetry) - 1/3/2013 11:00:53 PM
A heartfelt and enchantingly lovely write. Bravo! JMD

Languishing (Poetry) - 1/3/2013 3:50:32 PM
another your very wonderful writes budd

Languishing (Poetry) - 1/3/2013 1:59:27 PM
This is tremendous. It achieves a nice balance of imagery and use of words that allows the reader to continue along in the reading. Your use of words is achieving that balance between allowing the reader to continue to be immersed in the writing without stopping to think about what specific words mean. Good balance. Your writing continues to get better and better in my view. Good job, great thoughts and feelings displayed here.

You Are The Sun (Poetry) - 12/28/2012 5:59:13 AM
nice! sooo nice

You Are The Sun (Poetry) - 12/26/2012 10:13:22 AM
this was a lovely piece to read--thank you

You Are The Sun (Poetry) - 12/26/2012 4:55:08 AM
I read this poem almost as if I was listening to a song: with a sense of music inside and a rhythm in mind. Lovely ideas, connections, imagery. I like the way you compare uncertainty to an "aphotic mist" that evanishes under the Sun. Axilea

You Are The Sun (Poetry) - 12/25/2012 6:03:19 PM
This sounds like a love meant to be budd

Musical Fantasies (Poetry) - 10/14/2012 10:50:18 AM
Beautifully composed a pleasure to read love & Peace be with you William

Enough (Poetry) - 10/11/2012 6:14:02 PM
I am pleased that I am now a reader and not a submitter. That I have found a poet who's works I can enjoy. Though "Enough" is an age old tale of love forlorn it is still new in this rendering.- Robert

Act 1, Scene 2 (Poetry) - 10/11/2012 5:48:59 PM
The birth of a brighter day, set to the music of bird song. No doubt conducted by countless baton's of "The Willow".

9-1-1 (Poetry) - 10/11/2012 5:40:40 PM
Never seen a poem set up like this one Shirley, but by golly I enjoyed it. I think that you just surrendered yourself to his charmes if the truth be known. Oh! the pictures you include send this old codgers 82 year old heart pumping faster than it should.

Musical Fantasies (Poetry) - 10/10/2012 1:22:06 PM
Shirley ~ A unique poem of compelling emotions orchestrated in "Musical Fantasies." Accolades to you. Lady Mary Ann

The Willow (Poetry) - 10/6/2012 1:34:13 PM
A write set out in abstract form. Cleverly done so as not to be pondered over at length to be able to interpret its meaning. A cleverly painted picture in words. Robert

Truth (Poetry) - 10/6/2012 1:23:53 PM
The use of nature to portray ones own emotions, is a very clever and refreshing way of putting words into a delightful and satifying write. This work is very skilfully done and I congratulate you for it flows beautifully. Robert

Enough (Poetry) - 10/5/2012 6:21:56 PM
Love hurts sometime until we're force to turn page from the embitterness and move on. Very emotionally descriptive and I loved it! Thanks for the share Shirley! Blessings to you!

Rejoicing (Poetry) - 10/5/2012 6:03:16 PM

An ocean of emotion so beautifully rendered in this poem. Ron

Musical Fantasies (Poetry) - 10/5/2012 8:11:43 AM
Nicely written, Shirley. You have given us a view of what lies on the other side of that "wallof mistrust," and it looks oh so enchanting!

Musical Fantasies (Poetry) - 10/4/2012 1:20:18 PM
