hoot, here's another bump up, this is excellent, like Rainbow girl says you put so much of your heart in your work, and you have a beautiful heart.....well she didn't say that exactly, I embellished a bit, but its still true!

Wonderful poem, Hoot... I'm just sorry your poetic voice was stifled for all those years! It's amazing what even a little encouragement can do for our faith in ourselves... and how much we appreciate those who take the time and make the effort to give that encouragement!! Keep up the great work!

Lady Hoot: How I do understand. I got shot down in the forth grade. I wrote a story about Snoopy and the Red Baron… pictures and everything. I though it was great! I was very proud of my accomplishment. My teacher on the other hand thought it was inappropriate and that I should have done something else. She obviously didn't like my work. Talk about a young mind being devastated. Now, some 25 plus years later I'm starting to write again for my own pleasure. Poetry is only something I've picked up in the last six months. And though I've reestablished that belief in myself, it sure is nice to know others enjoy and believe in your work as well. There are a great number of those within these poetic halls I admire for their skill and talent… you are one such person. I believe in your gift as do a great many others… I'm glad you found it again and are willing to share it with us.

I stopped writing myself for about two to three years. Now all I do is write. I still get bad comments on my poetry. But it will never add up to all the good comments i get here ! I love your poems, each and everyone of them. Keep it up.

Hootessa

And what did you learn? Did you learn that the true joy in creating is not what others derive from it, but what it does to you? Did you learn that he didn't stop you from writing without your permission? Did you learn that the worse critic you will ever face is yourself? Did you learn that the past has passed, and its not what you lost, but what you've yet to find that will define who you are? Personally, I think you are a wonderful poet, far from being dead, and a very good source of inspiration. Did you learn that it doesn't matter what I think about your poetry as long as you are happy with what you write? Welcome to your resurrection. We've been waiting for you. But, even if there was nobody here, even if nobody loved what you write, you would still be a poet.

Hugs

Long John...you are so right, I will always be a poet even if I am not a good poet. It is wonderful if others like and can relate to your work, even better if publishers like it, but the most important thing is "Does my work please me?" If I can answer yes to that, I have succeeded. I write to please myself, to define myself above all else.

Andrew....thank you so very much. I am glad you too started writing again. Had you not it would have been a tragedy for all of us who love and admire your work here as well as yourself who speaks through your words.

Iloveit, southern and mairam....thank you each and every one of you
