      Registration -- to join PMO ***UPDATED INSTRUCTIONS***   03/14/2017

      Automatic registration has been disabled. If you would like to join the Poetry Magnum Opus online community, use the "Contact Us" link at the bottom of this page and follow these instructions: 1. Check your email (including your spam folder) in a timely fashion for a reply. 2. After you receive a reply, use the "Sign Up" link at the top right corner of the page to create your account. Do this fast. I've lost my patience with people who use the "Contact Us" link to express interest in joining and then don't bother to check their email for a reply and don't bother to join after registration has been enabled. The queue fills up fast with spammers, and I have to spend my time sifting through the rubbish to delete them. The window of opportunity for joining will be short. I will not have my time wasted. If you don't check your email and you don't bother registering promptly, you will find that registration has been disabled and your future requests to join may go ignored. /s/ Tony ___________________ [Registration will only be enabled for a short while from the time your message is received, so please check your email for a reply and register within 12 hours of using the "Contact Us" link. (Be sure to check your spam folder if you don't see a reply to your message.)]

      Blogs   05/01/2017

      Blogs are now accessible to Guests. Guests may read and reply to blog entries. We'll see how this works out. If Guest participation becomes troublesome, I'll disable Guest access. Members are encouraged to make use of the PMO Members' Promotional Blog to promote their published works. Simply add your latest entry to the blog. Include relevant information (your name or screen name, poem title, periodical name, hyperlink to the site where published, etc). If you have a lot of them and feel you need your own blog, let me know, and I will try to accommodate you. Members are encouraged to continue also posting their promotional topics in the Promotions forum on the board itself which is better suited for archiving promotions.

Have you survived the storm ?

The huricanes,The huricanes

no mercy do they show.

We ask eternai question

What have we done wrong ?

Don't blame yourselves,it's no ones fault

nor punishment from God.

Time and unforeseen occurance

I've learned be falls us all.

Prayers are the saving hope

Prayers for our souls.

I think people who blame God, need to be helped to understand, he loves us.he  provides salvation for our spirituality.    we may lose our lives, but not our hope of everlasting life through our faith in Jesus. God is not responsible for the results of violent weather.   Nor does he destroy entire islands ,because some people are serious wrongdoers.  No one can help people come to repentence, if God is going around  killing everyone.i'am    glad you agree with this, and thank you for commenting  on my poem .

Nature's destructive force is the other side of the coin of natures bounty. Hurricanes, floods, fires, earthquakes and tornadoes happen.  Somewhere, everywhere, to lessor and greater degrees depending on a multitude of factors in the moment.  None of which are God's or man's doing, well almost.   We, through neglect and/or abuse of our environment over centuries have disrupted some of the checks and balances of nature.  So maybe we do have to question our own actions in what are we doing to correct or contribute to abuses of our environment. But nothing we do or don't do is going to stop the next natural disaster.   We all have our own belief system.  Blame is not part of mine.

From very early childhood I have resented and rejected the notion and language, "acts of God," applied to natural disasters.  Misguided interpretation of concepts related to predestination and fate.  I am not going to let myself "get started" here.  ;-)
