Mary Angela Douglas's last comments on poems and poets

  • POEM: Time And Motion Studies In The Factories Of Light by Mary Angela Douglas (12/3/2016 2:48:00 PM)

    I appreciate very much your reading the poem and taking the time to make a comment but I wasn't really thinthinking about government surveillance but really the atmosphere of the so called art world now and the atmosphere in our schools and work places. This goes deeper than government and started long before their were laws on he books allowing government surveillance. It happens even in private situations and in teaching on a case by case basis and is only parially a poltical problem. The problem as I see it is not political. It is spiritual. It is the desire to control and how it is ruining modern poetry and the human soul, even the soul of children that concerns. I DO NOT WRITE POLTICAL POEMS PER SE NOR AM I IN FAVOR F THEM. POETRY FLOATS ABOVE, IS TRANSCENDANT AND IS A WAY OF ESCAPING ALL THE BS. That's just my opinion. I also believe if people want to write political poetry they are free to do that and I am not their judge. It's just not something I'm interested in. Though I DO agree with you that the level of government surveillance is getting ridiculous and bizarre beyond what is actually needed for so called homeland security. I guess it's all related really. The question comes down to finding your freedom in God and in your own creative work and in prayer we are always free. Inner freedom is the most important and we need God's help to preserve it. Bless you for caring about freedom.

  • POEM: Ivory by Mary Angela Douglas (11/30/2016 11:34:00 AM)

    Don't worry about anything. I have learned this the hard way. Everything, even politics is in God's hands andYou said in another message it's winter for U.S. Presidents come and go, but our souls are stronger. And I believe just as our souls float above our life circumstances so too the real soul of America floats above politics and will survive and as Maya Angelou put it once, survive AND THRIVE. God always makes a way for us. And winter has its beauty too. Use your art as you are doing to express all your thoughts and feelings and you will always be healed by it. The true government belongs to God and He sees through walls to all the corruption. Pray and you will be comforted and do what you love best.

  • POEM: Taken Into Account, Obscurely Dreamed by Mary Angela Douglas (11/30/2016 11:26:00 AM)

    Thank you James. Regarding your other comment on Ivory' just want to let you know I appreciate comments and take them as messages. I can't keep up with messages regretfully so I turned that feature off but I wish you good health and writing all your life long with hope and dedication. God preserves all our poems in Heaven I am completely convinced no matter what happens to them on earth. Of course he does! He puts our poems on his refrigerator I imagine, the way proud parents do. Have a great day and God bless your writing. IT ALL MATTERS.
