Only 5000?  There must be a glitch in Ron's computer somewhere...surely there must be more, for we find you everywhere!

Aspire on, Hoot.

#5,000!  Wow.  I can't agree with you more in this poem, Hoot.  You really do see people's struggles, lives, hopes, fears, dreams, all through their poetry.  Thanks to YOU for sharing so much here!
Keep those posts comming!

You're the best Ruth, a good friend as well as poet.  Thanks for being there.

the heart finds its morning
and is refreshed.

Hoot, a wonderful tribute. Congrats on 5k posts...although I haven't been part of passions for long, just through reading your work I feel as if I know you already. You are a wonderful poet, you express your life in words wonderfully. You also speak much of what I feel everyday...thank you for sharing so much!

Okay passions people...I meant this as a gift to you all and instead, you've given me yet another gift. I'm sitting here reading your replies with tears in my eyes. I wish I could reply to all individually, but I'm afraid I could never say the words I wanted to...so I'll just leave it at this...thanks, I love you all

Lovely poem Hoot! I would also like to thank you for taking the time out and reading my work. Keep up the brilliant work!

It's Hoot, the  super thinker.
Her pen rides the paper,
like it has blinkers.
