Dear friends,

God has made a plan for me
Which follow I as best I see
He's given love, He's given grace
And held me steady in my place
And posting as I'm writing phrase
I see my life in many ways
Before a screen a whole new world
A world of poetry unfurled
And more content I've never been
for poetry has been my friend
But now I'm weak and I must rest
And leave you all and test the test
No longer can I sit with you
And share the joys and joys anew
Too weak to sit, too weak to talk
This one who round the world did walk
This one who flew the azure sky
On wings of bird just last July
Who didn't know til months ago
A new desease would leave her so
But I will try as best I can
To rest the rest and write again
And I'll be back,as soon as soon
And sing a song and write a tune
For you my friends, a glorious gift
My weary spirit do uplift
So laugh a laugh and joke a joke
Eat a pretzel drink a coke
And stare at your computer screen
And wish a wish and dream a dream
And able as and able might
My heart will still continue write
And maybe I can't sit and see
But son will print your poems for me
And bet a nickel, bet a dime
I'll be back in shorter time
Perhaps a month or week to take
Perhaps an hour I'll be in shape
See you soon!

Our prayers will be with you; you will be missed during your period of rest. We will await your return.

Your words, your gifts, will then be read,
let it not be left unsaid
that you were here, and not just a reader,
why, you became a lovely leader...

so we will drink your worded sensations
and stand in awe of your creations,
for you have gifts, our lady fine
putting fairy dust in the gifts you rhyme.

Be well, soon...

Look, then, into thine heart, and write ~~~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Oh Elizabeth....what can we do?? I did not know you were sick. This is awful. You must have your son type for you we can keep close.

Thinking of you my friend,


if you can dream; you can fly...if you are flying; you are dreaming.

The sprit that your poems show
life like a river's ebb and flow
will make this time that you must face
a space that you fill up with grace.

That we have shined a little light
Gives pefect meaning to this site
That we have helped a friend in need
We'll count as our most noble deed.

You say that you are happy for
The laughter, friendship, love and more
That you have had the chance to share
With Passion poets everywhere.

Well, let me tell you, my sweet miss,
The simple, honest truth is this..
The day you came to join the rest,
WE are the ones who have been blessed!

The beauty of your poetry
Brings joy to all, including me.
The simple way you coin a phrase
Can please us in so many ways.

Our site here is an entity
Composed of personalities
All bound together in one goal
To bring a smile and soothe the soul.

When you laugh, you'll hear us laugh, too
When you hurt, we'll hurt just like you.
When you're sick, sick is what we feel
When you're well, then we all will heal.

Do what you must to make it through
And know that we are here for you.
Till then, with every poet's breath
We'll pray for you, Elizabeth.

Elizabeth, dear one. You have brought out the best of hearts in many of us.
God bless your rest.
Do what needs to be done.
Return when you are stronger ...
we wait for your return.
May the spirits keep you company
until the fire is walked.
Love ... much love to you.

Elizabeth, again, my heart goes out to you in your time of illness. Please do not hesitate to let me know if there is anything I can do. You do not live that far away, even if it is just for someone to come sit and talk, share a hug....I will find my way there. God bless, you are in my thoughts and in my prayers.
Sending tons of hugs,
