OUR WORLD IN POETRY  "Today's News ~ Is Tomorrow's History"

Hello All,

Well, I believe I am going to start working on my site again.  I rarely come in and check-in on it.  I have lost something...  I'm not even sure of what it is I lost.  Hopefully, I will find it here because I feel like a part of me is missing.  Do you know I haven't written one political poem?  And between Donald Trump "The Donald,” Ted Cruzs "The Liar" and now Hillary Clinton "Crooked Hillary" ~ I am sure there's plenty to write about.  Because this is only two-thirds of the Republican party & half of the Democratic party.  The Democrats seems to be a little less volatile but they've had their moments also.  Can you believe I missed all of it...  So I am back in my cubbyhole trying to find myself (that is so 1960's) WOW.  I can tell you this with all of the people running for president in both parties, people we are so screwed.  If this is the "Best America" has to offer ~ We're in for some real hard times.  I believe that the rioting in the streets that we've seen over the last several months is an indicator of what is to come.  So stand up for your 2nd Amendment Rights ~ The Right To Bear Arms.  I know who I believe is the lesser of the evils running.  I have watched every debate, caucus and primary.  I can tell you this ~ There are no Lincolns, FDRs, JFKs or Ronald Reagans out there.  So start reading up on who's left.  Know who they are ~ What they stand for.  Know who you believe can "get along with" and "stand-up to" America's friends and foes.  America needs her friends.  Unfortunately, we have lost many in the past eight years.  We can thank President Obama for this.  Above all else, please remember a smart man is not always the best man.  Patriotism out ranks smart.  A Patriotic President will always do what's Best for his or her country ~ In our case America.  Well, I guess I did have something to say.  One more thing, we need a President, that will take care of our Veterans.  They should be paid fairly, medical insurance is a must and they should not have to wait six months to a year for a doctor's appointment.  Last but not least, their families should not need FOOD STAMPS so they can eat.  This is a Disgrace and the American Government should be ashamed!!!  Now, I think I'm done.

Nice chatting with you,



Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Argentina became Pope Francis 1st on 13 March 2013

Dear Papa,
(Poem hi-jacked by "G" ~ oops)

As the “G” of a young Catholic boy,

His words and memories ~ His to enjoy,
Excitement followed ~ As if running a relay,
Talking as fast ~ Of the Pope’s day,
His words to share ~ His to hold,
Of Papa’s Grace ~ As the boy told.


We are the 5th grade class of Flaget,
We watched your visit every day,
Just to see you on American land,
Walking and Touching ~ Hearts and Hands,
You shared graciously ~ Your Religious Romance,
American hearts opened ~ And became entranced,
A story book visit ~ Of one gentle man,
You stopped and touched ~ Your fellowman,
Religion did not stand in the way,
As history was written ~ Kindness displayed,
TV’s were on ~ And the world came to see,
All standing ~ Was reverently on bended knee,
The Multitudes Believed and Prayed,
That your visit ~ Could be America’s Crusade,
Blessings and kisses ~ Brought smiles and tears,
Your gentle face ~ Will be remembered for years.
Over-and-Over ~ You said, "Pray for Me,”
Those you asked ~ Touched by your plea,
You became real ~ To American youth,
God Bless You Papa ~ For Speaking The Truth.


*Written for my grandson ~ His class, friends and school,
So they will always remember ~ That Pope Francis was cool.

I have added a new page,


After I have interjected my thoughts on
today's issues, here on my home page.  I will then move them to
the new page.  Like all of my other pages the newest will always
be on top.  That way I always know what I was thinking, when I
was thinking it...lol
  I have added a Political & Opinions page.  This way we know what I was thinking ~ When I was thinking it.

Run your mouse over the American Flag.

To ALL of Our Veterans and that includes

Our Warrior Dogs  ~  Thank You.


Today's News ~ Is Tomorrow's History

Our World In Poetry" is dedicated to "Our World" & "Poetry." It is an observation of the events that make up the world we live in. All news stories are researched and all pictures in this book are accompanied by the author's name. The pictures trigger a memory and the words hopefully captures the heart. People like to read about things they know or remember ~ This book does it in rhyme and the accuracies still hold true. It is also an heirloom that pictures, names & ages, and how some of these events affected their lives can be written down. Then they can be handed down to "Tomorrow's Children."

The "Painted Cave Walls" ~ Of Eons Past,
Have met printed word ~ With a camera cast,
Not yet a dinosaur ~ Bound Books shoved to the rear,
As digital emerges ~ Progress begins with a tear.

As I stated earlier this is my tribute to 'Our World' & 'Poetry' & You. It is a treasure trove of Illustrated International News written in rhyme. It is written in plain English with no hidden meaning. Everything has been researched so each piece can stand on its own merit. I know in my heart this time period can be passed down to "Tomorrow's Children." These words and pictures hopefully will make them laugh, cry and understand some of struggles of our era. With all my heart I pray that "Tomorrow's Children" ~ Our children's children will have conquered our demons and will know inner peace. I have no words of wisdom for them ~ Just a few words of fragmented truths depending on a society past.

Thank You Jesus,

Thank You Jesus for “The Old Rugged Cross,”
For all You’ve give us ~ And for those we’ve lost,
Thank You for staying and not walking away,
For hearing our words as we pray,
Thank You for wearing the “Crown of Thorns,”
For baring the pain ~ Our sins ~ You mourned,
Thank You for the spikes in Your Feet and Hands,
For telling Your Father ~ They don’t understand,
Thank You sometimes goes unsaid,
Yet, You forgive ~ And love instead,
Thank You for the spear in Your side,
For the blood You spelt ~ When crucified,
Thank You Jesus ~ For today and tomorrow,
For the happiness now ~ And then for the sorrow.


Really, thanks for coming in and reading His words.  He just allows me to put them on paper.  For that, I am grateful.  I realize that these poems are not religious, but they all let us know that He is here.  He may be silent ~ But, He is not gone.  God has given us so very  much and for the most part we ignore and neglect His words. It may be time for us to look around at
"Our World" and realize that we are in trouble.  
He is here ~ He does see ~ He does listen ~ 
~ Silence does not equal gone ~
~ Silence equals free will ~
~ Dialog is the answer ~
~ He Is The Way ~
~ So Pray ~
