Lovely poem to keep going to the finish line.
Vortex (Short Story) - 3/20/2013 8:39:14 PM
very interesting story, and I like the addition of the Bible verses and references. That made the story pop more for me.

Excellent write once again, my friend.
Every Child Needs (Poetry) - 4/23/2015 11:57:42 AM
Better to have "no" parent than a "bad" parent.
Every Child Needs (Poetry) - 4/23/2015 11:28:50 AM
Some are blessed with a good mother and a good father while others have neither. It is the way of this world/life. Sad but true. Thank you for sharing. Love, peace, and blessings,
Every Child Needs (Poetry) - 4/23/2015 7:07:23 AM
It's amazing how many single mothers are out there, and how many children grow up without a father. A sad fact of our times.
Jesus' Rainbow (Poetry) - 4/22/2015 9:12:58 PM
Cool it Zach. Ron is a child of God even if he is blind. He knows all too well what he is doing. His desire is for you to come out of the light of Jesus. However, deception is everywhere. Who really cares if he likes your poem? That will not save Ron. For I, John Domino was once a drift like a grain of sand. Then the Lord God save me his hand. He picked me up from that rough and tumbled shore. He showed me a love that will last, forevermore. Amen
Jesus' Rainbow (Poetry) - 4/21/2015 1:14:09 PM
Because you continue to rebel against your Creator, who is the living God, Ron, you are spiritually blind and unable to understand the reason WHY God created the rainbow. You may come to some limited understanding of HOW God causes a rainbow, but until you humble yourself before Jesus Christ, you will be separated from God not only in this life, but in the life to come. I am asking the Lord to soften your heart and have mercy on you. I say that humbly of course, because only His pity, opened my eyes to the truth and saved me from my sin. Other than that, did you enjoy the poem? :)

VERY NICE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I LOVE IT!!!!!!!! Liana Margiva
Jesus' Rainbow (Poetry) - 4/21/2015 7:52:44 AM
You've viewed an experiment first reported by Isaac Newton. I have seen it, too whenever sunlight strikes some glass object that I have in a certain way breaking up the spectrum into its colors.
I am grateful for rainbows in nature and the ability to see all of the colors of the spectrum that are naturally hidden in sunlight until refracted by the prismatic qualities of glass and plastic. But I see no message from god in it, unless one is reverting back to mystery and myth from those, long ago, who couldn't describe phenomena when they saw it, so attributed what they saw to whatever gods they believed in at that time. Strange. Isn't it wonderful how truth and knowledge sets us free so we are no longer shackled to old myths and rituals that don't do us any good but often do us a lot of harm controlling our lives.
Emmaus (Poetry) - 3/13/2015 4:48:27 PM
A most apt and timely testimonial of your faith considering Easter is not far away. Love, peace, and blessings to you,
Can You Hear Me Now? (Poetry) - 3/8/2015 3:57:04 PM
TECHNOLOGY HAS TAKEN THE 'TOUCH' OUT OF TOUCHING. THANKS FOR SHARING, ZACH. LOVE, BLESSINGS AND FAITH...JOYCE * HIS INSPIRATIONS
Can You Hear Me Now? (Poetry) - 2/19/2015 11:33:01 PM
Technology seems to have stunted out ability to communicate in real terms. It's all about the typed word these days. Our younger generations have no memory of, or any clue as to the value of, that personal touch ...and that's just plain sad!
Can You Hear Me Now? (Poetry) - 2/5/2015 10:55:18 AM
So many times, you just want to say, "Stop tweeting, you twit!" So many ways to get in touch; but, so many distractions to keep you 'from' touching - texting, tweeting, facebooking, cell-phoning. Today's generation HIDES in their cell phones, becomes MORE introverted, less social, and doesn't even CARE to look up from their phones, to be civil, and civilized.
Can You Hear Me Now? (Poetry) - 2/4/2015 10:06:15 AM
Right on. It seems like it's harder every year to make more meaningful connections in our lives. Technology does not necessarily help us in that regard.
Can You Hear Me Now? (Poetry) - 2/4/2015 7:12:30 AM
Very true. I can't say it any better than Jerry.
Can You Hear Me Now? (Poetry) - 2/4/2015 4:26:04 AM
I have to completely agree with your summation inside this bleak, but very true poem.
Can You Hear Me Now? (Poetry) - 2/3/2015 9:40:22 PM
Nice poetic thoughts of peace, love and innocence. However, we in this world are advancing backwards. Morons are making a mockery of our civil decent society. But like an ostrich, decent people don't know what to do. We have our heads in the sand while terrorist slay our brothers and sisters out in the open. Pray for justice for all, Amen

When God Became A Baby (Poetry) - 12/15/2014 9:53:17 PM
Great write Zach. When I see Christmas trees, I see sacrifices. When I see wreaths, I see life- savers. When I see Christmas lights I see guiding light. All things point to Jesus. For without Him, this would be a dark season indeed. Amen...
When God Became A Baby (Poetry) - 12/14/2014 6:10:35 AM
A beautiful poem reminding us that Jesus was born and died for sinners everywhere. I for one belong to Jesus Christ. Thanks for sharing!
Love and blessings,

A wonderful Christian poem.

Thanks for the lovely poem that reminds us, Jesus is the reason for the season.
Many Hands (Poetry) - 12/12/2014 12:31:11 PM
Great poem,filled with truth;it reminds me of John Donne's 'Meditation 17',where he says "no man is an island,entire of itself;every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main.'
Thanks Zach for sharing this truth with us,and continued success.

Sandy Beach (Poetry) - 11/23/2014 8:37:05 AM
Rings so true of seaside lore. Especially the way the children see it.
Sandy Beach (Poetry) - 11/22/2014 1:58:11 PM
Wonderful beach poem. Miami Beach used to be my home away from home. Amen!
The Angels had A Pillow Fight (Poetry) - 11/21/2014 8:39:23 AM
A bit zany, but I like it. Creative.
The Angels had A Pillow Fight (Poetry) - 11/20/2014 10:09:07 AM
It's always lovely and feels actually warmer while those big flakes are coming down. But then there's the hard reality of shoveling all that snow and sometimes, the wind starts to blow and those big flakes become hard pellets that sting and make being outside quite miserable.
A great remake of an old song.
Astonished (Poetry) - 11/17/2014 10:13:09 AM
Beautiful write Zach,and a powerful testament to your faith.
Reading this poem made me think of the poet Emily Dickinson;the rhyme and rhythm are quite similar to several of her pieces. This is said in the highest complimentary way.
Thank you for sharing,and continued success.

Sweet, Zach, like so many of your poems!
The Walk (Poetry) - 11/12/2014 10:04:09 AM
When we take time to be with youngsters, we become a lot younger, ourselves. As your poem shows us, the simple things in life are often the best.
The Walk (Poetry) - 11/12/2014 2:56:08 AM
Wonderful Poem Zach!
Yours in Christ,
Astonished (Poetry) - 10/26/2014 9:22:52 AM
I don't generally ride someone else's religious winds
but this was a gentle ride. Comforting.
Astonished (Poetry) - 10/25/2014 12:34:17 PM
This is another offering that stands as witness to your faith, Zach. Love and blessings to you,
Astonished (Poetry) - 10/25/2014 9:37:24 AM
I love autumn leaves, pasted or not.
Astonished (Poetry) - 10/24/2014 11:00:18 PM
Great poetic truth Zach! Yes, we walk by what the Lord has created everyday but we need to TAKE TIME to be thankful for his blessings are all around us everywhere, everyday. Amen!

The Life of Leaf (Poetry) - 10/8/2014 10:19:19 AM
I love how you told the story of one little leaf in this wonderful poem. Fall is my favorite season.
Love and blessings,
The Life of Leaf (Poetry) - 10/7/2014 12:00:37 AM
Delightful poem. Nice colors impeded in words that add to the memory of the coming of Fall. All the seasons, God created it all.
Glory to Jesus Christ! Amen!
The Life of Leaf (Poetry) - 10/6/2014 2:45:19 PM
...great poem dedicated to the beautiful season of Fall...there is
something magical about the simple leaf...in your poem Zach
and the one pressed between the pages of my favourite book
...for safekeeping...Thank you for sharing your verse...
The Life of Leaf (Poetry) - 10/3/2014 8:07:22 AM
One leaf alone is indeed a majestic thing
but one forest of them is something close to heaven.
Superb poem, Zach.
The Life of Leaf (Poetry) - 10/3/2014 6:36:27 AM
The life of a leaf is indeed quite interesting. It really is strange that trees shed their coats of leaves, when all other living things grow or keep theirs. Still those new fallen leaves provide ground insulation for many creatures we never see.
