Take me back to the time - Inspirational Challenge 103 - Shangri La -- by Member: Nishu Mathur, India -- added: 10/20/2019 11:00:45 AM

Denis Barter said:

A dream long held by many who remember the days of yesterday - for we tend to forget the ill fortune and bad times so many were going through. To see the world through a child's eyes, is one 'wish' I would love to have fulfilled - if only for a day - but cynicism and reality always win out. Nice thoughts and very descriptive way of responding to the Challenge. Nicely done Nishu. Hope all is well with you? Keep smiling - it keeps the neighbours guessing! Lol! Fondest regards and prepare for the winter ahead. Pauline and Denis.

Mobani Biswas said:

This is what the past does to us.... It leaves us behind with the wish that we could turn back the clock and relive the moments or even change them. This writing gives a peek into your beautiful past. A lovely contribution towards the challenge!

A BEAUTIFUL LIFE -- by Member: Drsudarsan Prasad, India -- added: 10/16/2019 4:52:55 PM

Drsudarsan Prasad said:

Thanks dear Rhymer Denis for your lovely and deep comments. You are a born lover of nature ,as is evident in the lyrical passages which you beautifully pen in your response. Wish I could see it with my eyes too. I was in a prison of uncertainty for a while, the scientist and the writer in me taking stock of my life and its progress. Finally both have come to a truce ,and I started again, albeit in a nervous manner . THANKS FOR WELCOMING ME BACK WITH OPEN ARAMS AND I MEAN IT. Warm regards and a ton of thanks . Good night Denis !

Take me back -- by Member: Charles Fisher, UK -- added: 10/16/2019 6:50:51 AM

Challenge 103: The Century I was Born In -- by Member: Chad Martinez, USA -- added: 10/13/2019 12:23:20 AM

Mobani Biswas said:

Such a harsh truth which you appropriately write- "It's a world where everyone thinks that the way they live and do things is the way all the others should live and do things" Couldn't agree with you more. With each word the grimness of our situation comes to fore.

A BEAUTIFUL LIFE -- by Member: Drsudarsan Prasad, India -- added: 10/16/2019 4:52:55 PM

Denis Barter said:

Good to see you back Drsudarsan. Wondered where you had gone for it seems a long time since you last posted. VN numbers seem to be shrinking at an alarming rate, or is it my imagination? Busy times ehre in Canada as Fall is showing us many and varied facets of Fall. Heavy rains: frosts: almost summer temperatures with leaves falling in droves and strong, gusty winds, driving all before them! Love it! Perfect weather to bring us to the end of the year! A poem that allows our mind to delve deeper into the human existence: wishes and hopes. Fondest regards. Denis and Pauline.

The things I cannot see -- by Member: Westly Shaw, USA -- added: 10/15/2019 4:52:03 PM

Denis Barter said:

Hi Westly, and so true, there are many things we may see, but there are far more that we can only imagine as to how they look! Let's face it, without our imagination life would be a very dull place, and we'd have very little enthusiasm for going places: doing things or investigating. The last thoughts we'll have are those that take us to Heaven or Nirvana, or wheresoever we might go and how it will look. In the meantime there's nothing wrong with allowing our imagination to paint the scene - even as we hope it will be. Take care. Fondest Denis and Pauline. PS: I need no imagination to know it has rained buckets of water today! Lol. Rhymer.

Is it now too late Oh Lord -- by Member: Dwayne Rankin, USA -- added: 10/11/2019 2:27:04 PM

Dwayne Rankin said:

you are so correct Westly, If there is any separation it is us doing the separation. But I think that we still all need to realize that any forgiveness is a gift from Him and that we should never take it for granted that He will automatically forgive without any sign of repentance from us

Mobani Biswas said:

I loved the way you portraited the time of your childhood and shared a snippet of your life when the tv was black and white. And certainly with what we see now we really can't predict what the next century will have in store.

Makes one stop and think, and only each of us know the answer about love. I think as to me this poem point out, love is different, not more so or less so , just different. Enjoyed!

Is it now too late Oh Lord -- by Member: Dwayne Rankin, USA -- added: 10/11/2019 2:27:04 PM

Westly Shaw said:

This poem to me was uplifting not sad, why? Because you still here and writing a poem that we all feel if honest at one time or another. We may think God has left us. but just because we cannot see Him or think He is not there, does not mean He is not. Put your hand on your heart, as long as it beats He is there. When its stop, you are there with Him. This poem makes me see were never alone , as there someone who feel just as we do at one time or another. Enjoyed!

Westly Shaw said:

Betty, this is your best poem yet, as I can picture this as I read. It reminds me of something you once told me.'" No matter your age, time, the season ,you have not seen it all, as change is in the air." However, As I read this I thought change is not always for the best! Your childhood sounded so free, unlike mine where my Mother never took her eyes off me or my friends, because of the unknown evil.
