ONE THOUSAND STRONG!!!!
posted 08-31-99 03:58 PM

Yesterday
When I logged on,
Nine-Ninety-Nine
Fine posters strong -

Great poets hail
From every land -
Merely one more
Would make a GRAND!!

MissMilli joined
With FanciNess -
She'll be the bane
Of NanciNess.

One thousand in
Just ninety days -
This coterie
Is Passions' way.

Great friends we've made
Both near and far,
On ICQ
And Messenger.

How wonderful
It is to see
Passion's Prolific
Poetry.

Our thanks that Ron's
Digital embrace
Has built this great
Poetic place.

Now let us ask....
If Ron Carnell
Can rescue Nan
From AOL....???

Glad you posted this again, MissM-- Hopefully we can recover all the wonderful comments from Open Poetry #1! You were the thousandth member! We're happy to have you join us. Your style somehow seems very familiar but.... oh never mind.

What did you win, btw? A toaster?

Oh, and don't feel bad about breaking the Open #1. We all forgive you. hehehe

In the beginning there was one poet
whose soul was strong and true
he threw open wide his loving arms
and then the one was two.

Word spread quickly of his place
a home for poets to rest
and in coming together in passion
weve surely become the best

As we increase in quantity
may our quality stay the same
without ego, without pretense
without glory, without fame

A tribute fair to Ron it seems
is just a beginning chorus
how can we thank him enough
for all that hes done for us

Though we cannot make you guru
or proclaim you deity
Ron, dear friend, we honor you
for a home to post our poetry.

I've been away on vacation at Pelican Point-- What happened to all the pages to Open Poetry?? What's with this Open Poety #2? Someone said it broke? And YOU broke it, Milly? Welcome to the forums, btw, but how in the heck did you break it? You've mentioned nan and ron a few times, do you know them from another website or the main Passions web pages? I'm sooooo confused!

Oh, and do we REALLY have to post 50 posts to achieve "member" status? I wonder if I'm a member yet.... doubt it.... better get posting, huh?

Hope to see you around more often, Mill. Cute poem here!

luv, pan
