One last time

Gentle fingers upon the time worn keys do strike
Repetitive clicking into the late hours of the night
My head aches as it tries to send me to sleep
Yet Iíll fight it for hours in search of what I seek
A single word or simple phrase to turn their heads
Thoughts to capture the mindsí eye or release a thread
Imagination and scenery are the weapons I use
With a tempo unique like the south side blues
And a rhyme as fresh as the morning dew
Just enough to catch the courage within you
No need to worry. So please do not fret.
A great calamity will be should you get upset.
Freedom is a price worthy to pay in blood
And besides, itís always fun to play in the mud
So in one week Iíll be gone to run and shoot and kill
One week is all thatís left, to write these pages' fill

James, Your weapons of imagination and scenery always make the message clear. You have a wonderful arsenal existing in your mind. Good luck on your journey and may God stand beside you everyday.

Just one week til you go away?
I hope it isn't for long, that you stay.
Your verse is inspiration to us all.
We'll miss your presence in this happy hall.

(I was the first member and didn't post more than ten times until august.) this place is bookmarked and I'll get them put on my computer. either that or I'll get nan to send me the link once more. hehe

James,
You post far too little now for my liking. It will be a loss for passions to not have your work displayed in all it finery here. I wish you the best of luck and do be careful

ruth - I don't feel like I post far too little. I feel like I reply far too little. one of the things I've done since being here is to go through the poems that haven't gotten ANY responses and make sure that they are given honest critiques. I try not to engage in popularity contests and although I wish I could always get 20+ responses, I know that for every post I get, some one will go without. therefore I try to comment on the works no one has yet to do so to. we all skip people's works some times for the fact that we don't want to be ther first to comment. others for the fact that we don't have enough time. sure I will read some of toerag and balladeer's work, but I feel that they get enough criticism that I can go to someone who is struggling and making an effort to produce something good. not every one can write easily (it took me a while to get the hang of it), so I try to help with some encouragement. =-) every body likes replies. even if we don't like the piece we posted. =-)
