Hey, Denise, very very very cool! Yep, great poem, for sure! LOVE IT! And how true... we have definitely come a LONG way since the beginnings of Passions... didn't know this many people in the world loved poetry as much as me.
I remember the day Nan IM'd me (we used to know each other over at the Scroll/Critic Corner... great place, if any of you are looking to 2-thyme like I do somethymes... hehe)... anyway, Nan IM'd me and told me that she had some poems at netpoets.net, on the Main site, and was talking to Ron about starting a new forum to post. It was very exciting when he first started the blue page...some of you may know it... i know Michael and Sharon were there and Balladeer and some others when we first got started... well, that was just the beginning!!! And now THIS! Over 2,000 members and growing so fast, I certainly can't keep up! (notice, I currently have less than 700 posts, unlike some of your thousands!!! hehe... of course, I spent some thyme in an institute... LOL)...
What I'm trying to say is THANK YOU, to Ron and also to Nan for telling me about this place when it was first being developed... I feel privileged to be part of its beginnings and special that Nan invited me over.
Founding member? well, not me... but thanks to Ron, Michael, PoetdeVine, and Nan, we all have a place to hang our hats!
GREAT poem and tribute, Denise... as usual, your writing has impressed me!
