Hope you had a great weekend as well. :)

Obama in a way is like a Kennedy, same talk. He is a member of the same clubs as the big familys, such as the tri lateral commision, the on the surface looks like a nice group, but infact is for globalization. The 2 party system was long ago infiltrated by big media and neither party represents the values set out at the founding of the partys or for that matter this country. Many that dwell on the future can see it play out a few ways. one, he could end up like Kennedy, that will set of riots. Two its looking as if we shall end up in another war with Iran, if that happens, we dont have the man power to do it, no draft in place, so it will be with nuks. Now if Bush can do that, lets say there is another "terrorist" attack before the elections, He has the power to cancel the elections, impose martial law.He will get the wars he wants, its a power grab. They have through globalization created a mess, they have made other countrys wealthy, to the point that they have money, nuks,and a need for oil. When oil prices go up, the dollar falls. Not sure why.But enough of all that, we are all watching. Mccain could win, but it would be false election votes.Its a shame really the one man that could have changed it for us, was never given any air time by big media. good write. In my opinion, Obama is a show boat, not enough experience.I all so think he is muslim, and is just not saying so. I hope that Im wrong, I hope it gets better. take care

Thank you Jeff and Tim for your kinds. My youngest son Jack, agred 9, was my inspiration behind this poem. I was reading to him, in his mums bed when the words came to me. I had to dash to write the basic framework before finishing writing the poem. Thank you Jeff for the ultimate complement of showing your daughter.

Obama makes me nervous, but as a Democrat, he should remain true to Democracy. Or so I hope, and change is coming.
And we will see where it leads.

Thank you for your comment. Walls can be our allies, keep the cold hands of life out, or it can be our enemy, keeping life away from us. But no matter what wall we stand behind, everything we are will always be known to the ghosts walking through like in your poem, The Unseen Shadow, which I really liked. :)

Hello Dear Friends in Poetry
Thank you Sandre, Antonio, Janet and Jeff- for your fantastic comments!!
I knew it will be difficult to follow this one, it supposed to be like that!
Please read the information below, this was to challenge the word "VISION"
For those of you that had struggle with understanding the meaning of this write. I have brought some of the definitions from the Dictionary to help you understand why the write was sort of mix of all major issues that we shall practice to create a better World for our Generations. Hope this will explain and give more light on this complex write:
The poem shall have the meanings included in the body with the theme -VISION
Shall have my own thoughts and imagination used there.
Vision (Definitions from Dictionary.com)
1. the act or power of sensing with the eyes; sight.
2. the act or power of anticipating that which will or may come to be
3. an experience in which a personage, thing, or event appears vividly or credibly to the mind, although not actually present, often under the influence of a divine or other agency
4. something seen or otherwise perceived during such an experience.
5. a vivid, imaginative conception or anticipation: visions of wealth and glory.
6. something seen; an object of sight.
7. a scene, person, etc., of extraordinary beauty:
8. to envision.
Thank you once again…Have a great Friday and coming weekend!

Hi Zuzanna, I had to read this a few times to get into it, bit different style probably but it was worth it.
Wonderful sentiment and not a million miles from that I wrote 'Darker Skies' with, only yours is a bit more optimistic! thanks Jeff

I take it you decided to polish off the lot then.
Wine that is!
Quite quirky this one. Varied but interesting imagery. Along with the usual negativity about the weather. It's no wonder we get so much rain in this country. We wish it upon ourselves.
Thu 24th Jul 2008 22:39
I can't explain it but a lot of this poem made me feel really heavy. Like i was carrying the world on my shoulders.
These are the kind of things i pray for every day, but as Sandre and Antonioni say, the reality far outweighs the possibility.
Sad but true. Well done for fitting so much into the write though. Very sincere too.
Thu 24th Jul 2008 21:58
I share your vision for world peace but doubt its achievement. Your poem is beautiful, full of hope but sadly I am a sceptic. Still writing the framework for future harmony cannot be a sin. More power to your poetry.

Thank you once again and will be back latter to comment on your poems...Have a beautiful evening and coming Weekend!
Greetings from Canada
With lots of friendship love...Zuzanna

Hi guys, this reminded me of trying to ride my first bike. Disaster. Fell off and scuffed my wrists. Never since managed even to drive a car. How sad is this. Poetry is so personal. love it. Sandy.

Hi Antonio, quite deep for you, and although I don't fully understand it, sounds like a bit of fear and apprehension there, Jeff ps thanks for your comment, I agree it seems that those who care most tend to be those with little anyway. Have a good break!

Hi Zuzanna, this is great and a tribute to a different breed of man and woman who risk their lives and must often wonder what for.
Interesting use of a prayer type finish, think it works well with what you wrote before though.
Great image, black and white men and a woman, who knows whats going through their minds? thanks Jeff ps thanks for your lovely comment on 'Darker Skies'
Wed 23rd Jul 2008 22:30
Machiavellianly. Such a heavenly word yet means nothing of the sort. (if you know what i mean.)
Reminds me of my niece who insisted she did not need stabilizers. She fell off!
Not only that, she refused to even look at the bike again for several weeks.
ps. Hope you bought her a hard hat!
Wed 23rd Jul 2008 22:13
I can think of something useful to do at home alone, but admittedly, it's better with two.
Parts of this one made me smile and yet there's a sadness too. Strange range of emotions Antonioni.
Wed 23rd Jul 2008 22:03
Even without the picture, the images would have been profound.
Wed 23rd Jul 2008 21:58
Hi Zuzanna, i think this is a wonderful tribute to any soldier. Even without the prayer like verse at the end. Although this kind of sentiment i echo.
Well written too.

Hey Sandre, did you know?
Spiritualism started with 2 sisters who heard rappings after a seance.
"Knock three times on the ceiling if you want me. Twice on the pipes, if the answer is no."
Ha ha. sorry, couldn't resist!
It's a great poem. It flows beautifully.

The dust i can cope with, just about.
It's the bloody mites that get me, little blighters.
But apart from that, love this sonnet. I can't think of a better word than Sandres, "classy", so i'll just put "very" in front.

Good luck. Janet.xx

Thanks Sandre, the chickens one is just a tongue twister, written after seeing a guy go up and do a poem that was "trying to understand why people become terrorists", but that really wasn't trying to do anything of the kind. Not being a very nice person, I decided to satirise it - and when I performed it the following week, the same guy turned up and was in the audience. Luckily he didn't twig, and he even came up to me afterwards and said he enjoyed that particular poem (and I had to try not to let on).
