  • POEM: It Isn't So Much Magic As It Is, Beauty by Mary Angela Douglas (4/16/2016 4:46:00 PM)

    Thank you so much. As an older person I am finding delight in having near total recall of the daydreaming state of mind and the freedom within that I had as a child. If only people would let children day dream MORE instead of filling every minute with things to put possibly on a college resume which is only going to make their resume sound like everyone else's in the end. In between the spaces of the world, the job, the unfortunate circumstance, are worlds of freedom. God lives in the pockets and we live in His. I see it that way.

  • POEM: Vivid by Mary Angela Douglas (4/15/2016 1:10:00 PM)

    Thank you so much Marie for reading and appreciating this poem. It is one of the poems closest to my heart because of the subject matter and because truly my Grandmother was a vivid person. I'm so sorry you did not know your Grandparents in life. I know you will have a beautiful meeting with them in Heaven and find that they still were watching over you tenderly over all your time on earth. My Grandmother Lucy loved God and the arts so much and just life yet at the same time was haunted by personal tragedies. She was a beautiful pianist and very funny too and being raised by her was unforgettable in so many ways, some of them hilarious as well as beautiful so I always have a smile on my face just by thinking of her. She didn't care how things looked to other people; she just cared about what was right. Your appreciation of the poem and my Grandmother through it is so finely and beautifully worded I know somehow you have made my Grandmother happy too in Heaven as well as her granddaughter. Blessings.

  • POEM: Sunset. by Marie Shine (4/14/2016 6:22:00 PM)

    It is a beautiful sunset poem. I love the subtle and kind way you use rhyme in your poem, it sounds like a wind chime to me in your poems your lovely use of rhyme. And I just realized the water is rippling. This altogehter is a comforting and breathtaking impression. Thank you for reminding the reader including me always, always of Beauty. This seems a world sometimes where people have become so worn down with fretting and care they have forgotten beauty; but you lift up the heart and head to see it in each poem. (except for the snake poem but then that snake needed to be told off) .
