Nowhere Land
JLR,
A commentary poem fit for the first page of Stars and Stripes magazine.
My dad, a Bronze Star vet of WWII would stand and salute you if he were still with us.
I agree that no political party owns this problem- but it will take the citizenry of our entire country to take steps to solve it.
No human being in this nation of plenty should be living in the streets.
No vet should be dishonored in such a way.
Thank you for sharing your talents with our fan site base and for showing us how we can help.
Sammielwf

    Sammielwf, I do very much appreciate your validation and we should all be grateful to every man and woman who has serviced, especially your dad! Freedom, is far from FREE there is a real cost. I hope our youth can read history and at some point soon learn this before it is too late for all of us.

Nowhere Land
This free verse, Nowhere Land, looks at the problem of homelessness with the emphasis on those have served our nation in war and yet are now allowed to rot in the streets. Homelessness in America is a national shame.

    Thanks for your validating comments Bill. Maybe we someday, will once again, be a more moderate and cooperative government at State and Federal levels and get leaders to lead America back onto the right the path in looking at our country more introspectively and less like a blank check for PAC programs that often do not serve the common citizen.

Lover's Quarrel
Yes. Lovers do quarrel. It is common and sometimes it is a good thing. It reduces tension and helps them to understand each other better. Glad they in the end embraced each other.

You did a good job with rhyming and syllable counts.

Good luck in the contest.

    Hi Lisa, thank you so much! I hope that your day has been going smashingly well. Will you be joining Jims Sonnet class in January?

reply by Lisa Wharton on 01-Nov-2020
    Yes. It was my suggestion for him to teach a Sonnet class. I really want to learn how to write Sonnet.

    I will be in Mexico for a few weeks but I can attend the class from there.

    How about you?

    Hope you are getting better with your health.

reply by the author on 02-Nov-2020
    Thanks Lisa, yes I intend to successfully attend this next class, I have the surgery this week, Thursday and all will be well! 2021 is going to be a banner year of good health and good cheer!

reply by Lisa Wharton on 02-Nov-2020
    Good luck with your surgery. We all hope 2021 will be a better year for everyone.

    See you in class.

Nowhere Land
Wonderful poem! I don't think many people are actually aware of the numbers of homeless we have in our country and how many of them are our own U.S. veterans! There should never allow a veteran to be homeless. They fought for our country so we can be here now to celebrate life together in the freedom we have. Thank you for adding information about homeless veterans.
Patty

    Patty, thank you for taking the time to read and comment on my poem. We do have a serious problem in America with mental illness and a political disinterest in a fix, if we had journalistic coverage that would sell advertising perhaps there would be interest to address this issue.

I really can't even imagine how awful it must be to have no permanent home--to be scared, hungry, cold, . . . And, yes, so many homeless are veterans, so sad. Your poem is very descriptive and heart-wrenching.

"Behold I stand at the door and knock.If any man hear my voice and let me in, I will sup with him and he with me." Bible. You turned your face to Him and He rewarded you with a sign. We are told not to ask for signs (Bible) this sign was His love towards you. Excellent, blessings, K XX

Lover's Quarrel
This is one of the best Nonets I've read my friend.

Within such a limited and rigid form, you've turned out something that simply flows down the screen while delivering its lament and incorporating some of the old English. No mean feat! But what a wonderful result.

And yes, what is there for this couple if they can't put aside their differences and subdue their fears?

Good luck in the contest xooxoxox

An excellent free verse testimony of your faith, J. Strong references and superb and yet subtle imagery to illustrate your Angels that were sent to bring you peace.

Wishing you much luck with the Contest Committee with this gem. :)

This is beautiful, Jim. I was so blessed as I was reading it and the testimony of faith in our loving God. He does send angels and bathes our lives in peace. So well done. Wish I had a six for you!!

The Master's Messenger
Yes, there is a burgeoning awareness that grows with the passage of time, and an ever growing place of unfamiliarity taking the form of a person, because God is much larger than a person, He is creation manifest, and yet your insignificance suddenly has significance because He did it all for you! Beautifully written, blessings Roy
