Where the Mighty Assemble -- by Member: Frank Davis, USA -- added: 3/17/2019 4:53:41 PM

Marcia Schechinger said:

Frank "missiles be controlled by misguided men. he had his chance of fame and fortune, but the price was soul high", I pray for peace for all nations that devotion and religion is free and 'man' will not do injury to his fellow 'man'. God bless our world, let us comfort it - Not destroy it!

Lee "nothing can recover the happy innocence", so I join you in thoughts and prayers for this community. "love and compassion will remain our common dream", I shall take a moment for prayer and solitude for those who suffer from such an act!

Dearest Eddie! Another beautiful written contribution to the Challenge Title. And so true it is. We hardly ever notice, less mention the people who assist others who experience trouble or hardships. For as you also mention, they never seek attention nor care to be noticed. But we who have crossed their paths always remember them and keep them in mind. I know many people like that down here. People who do so much for others on a daily basis. Nurses, firemen, police officers, teachers, general workers, etc. People do not take enough time to mention all these people, nor take the time to thank them for all the things that they do for us. "...They are simply helping others, and that's the Wonder of Life..." Indeed so. What would our societies be like if we did not have these people who simply help others just because they can. A beautiful contribution to the challenge title and one I enjoyed reading! Thank you dearest Eddie for another great contribution! Warm regards dear friend! Conrad

William Willis said:

Hi Lee, may these "long white clouds" soon drift away and once again show blue clear skies. Untainted minds and untainted landscapes have been rocked by this atrocity. Your poem tells of a "lovely place of beauty and culture, now its peoples are weeping, in mosques and under steeples" all religions in mourning for those affected. I remember the Dunblane massacre in the early 1980s in a little sleepy town in Scotland only 20 miles from where I stay. Your words ****"feelings full of emptiness outrage and despair in our search for comfort we reach out everywhere" are very poignant and are my ****Lines Of The Day**** We are all different and must love each other first and foremost. There is evil out there and let us hope that it will never raise its head again. As writers we speak out. Well done Lee. *****.

Princess of my heart -- by Member: Jaffer Aslam, Bahrain -- added: 2/21/2019 3:16:12 PM

S.zaynub Kamoonpuri said:

Ah my oh my !!!!!! This is very flattering and charming is all I can say to this attractive monorhyming style poem. You are getting better at them wow. You know what She wishes to tell all the men who still have hopes of her, that she has one heart, always had a single heart and the only way it could be shared was promiscuity which you know too well she CAN never engage in. So it's not only you but all that will be politely pushed aside until it's time to turn over a new leaf then again only one of those guys will get a place in her heart. Thanks and best wishes always bro!
