The holidays are nearly here and I'm working on my gift list. So, I'd like to know what YOU would like. My budget is small so let's set a $50.00 limit. The gift must be REAL (save world peace for the Miss America Contest) and something I could ship to you if I had to......what I really want to know is "what gift could I give you that you would treasure"...(please be serious)

I would like something that came from your heart. I dont know what but something that would be to me personally. Like a poem made specially for me in a pretty frame.

What would YOU like PoetdeVine???


People leave our lives as quickly as they come, but the ones that mean something leave footprints in our hearts.

Sharon?  Santa came early for me this year...
to be exact? 2-2-2000...

I could not think of a better present, than the presence of poets and laughter and love.

I DO BELIEVE IN FAIRIES.

roflmao...er..maybe?

Sharon, What I "want" money can not buy (sigh)

But since you said it has to be real and less than $50.... I would have to say I want to finally see Voices On The Web on the shelves at my local bookstore   LOL

You guys aren't playing fair!!! I said REAL. How do you know I haven't made a deal with all your loved ones to find out what you really want this year!!

ERIN - send me your address and your poem of choice and it's YOURS!!

serenity - c'mon, surely there must be something tangible you want!

Jeffrey - we're trying!!!

Nan - yeah but if I could get that for you I might just keep THAT gift for myself! LOL

Ok. . . something real. . .

A book of poetry from a poet that inspired you to write.

Autographed by you.

How's that???

I'd like some funny stickers......phrases that have a lot to do with me and i'd be able to put it on my poetry binder.
For ex:

One says: "When I grow up I want to be like me"

hehe



I was born myself, raised myself, and will continue to be myself. The world will just have to adjust.

I hate your socks. I'd like to burn them!

Personally, I would love a date, time and place for our next Passions get-together ...

... so that we could all take a picture together and make copies as gifts for any of us that wanted one!  

I may not be the most amiable among us, but I do value this community of poets for the vital service that it provides to its members.  Of many, Passions has made one -- at least in the realm of poetic expression and, I would hope, fellowship.  

... besides, I would really enjoy the opportunity to argue with a few of you in person, for a change ... LOL

Remember: maintaining a positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will certainly annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

I got the best Christmas present anyone could ask for - way back in May     and it's worth far more than 50 bucks methinks...

But if you'd just keep writing, Sharon, there's nothing more I'd ever ask of you.

let me think...
perhaps I need a new thinking cap.  Mine dosn't seem to be working right now.  So if you find a good deal on one of those.  I'll take it.

I love the fact that you are spreding holiday cheer though.  That is a gift in itself.

Well, I was raised poor, but that was OK..helped me learn about the free things in life, like blackberries, fishing (didn't even know what a game warden looked like), and camping, to name a few, as well as swimming in the creek. Now that I'm older, well, I'm still poor by societal standards, earning well below the poverty line, but that's OK too. I've learned budgeting, and the enjoyment of the simple things in life, like sunsets, flowers, walks, and friendship. So really, I have no want of anything, though it would be nice for Voices on the Web to come out, so that I can send some copies out to be signed.  

Tell ya what Sharon. How about a simple birthday greeting. It's free, and brings more joy than much else can. And no worries, for mine ain't for another few weeks.

A personalised poem written by you in a frame for me sounds like a damned good idea!!

Hmmm... hard question. I guess the best thing you could get me is the Random House of Treasured Love Poetry (second edition, I already have the first!). I live 1 1/2 hours from the nearest bookstore, so books of any kind are on the top of my wish list.

I would like a book ...

(of course lol)

Possibly the second one in 'The Liveship Traders' Trilogy by Robin Hobb.

Yup - that'll do me...

That's real right hon?

(You're a sweetie to ask people this question...)

serenity. . . she said something real. . . I don't believe that a portrait of Sharon really exists. . . she's just a figment of our imaginations. . .

You know. . . I've heard that she's really a sub-program of Ceres that Ron created in an experiment for the government. . .

Ok...I've given this some thought, and
there really isn't much that I 'want'...
well, at least not that $50 can buy..lol.    
If you really wanted to do something, then
I think the nicest gift you could give me
is to make a donation, in my name, to my
favorite charity...'The Make-A-Wish Foundation".
They give smiles to so many children everyday.    
Beyond that, your friendship is gift
enough for me..    

Of course...a pic of you, or a hand-written
copy of your favorite of your poems would
be nice too.    

Thanks for asking..    

Now...what would you wish for?

another PIP poet recently had a vanity publisher print up copies of her poems - if you should ever elect the same path - I'd love a copy = barring that - a picture - as others have suggested - would be very nice - - last but not least - an autographed poem of yours that I praised
