To Denise....Wonderfully expressed!! I always do love your work anyway but this is so heartwarming and almost...what's the word?...Nurturing! Yes that's it!! Nurturing. It seems we can all come here for a lift or some kind of inspiration and sometimes even help someone else out of the blues.
To Ron: You are an absolute gem for providing all of us with a safe place to go when the rest of the world has trampled on us
and tried to beat us down into the trash heap with them. I love all the people who have tried so hard to make this a place of comfort and hominess and you are to be commended for your infinite patience.

Thanks to everyone!!!

When the world shuns you
and you are in pain
you will always find home here

When life is just
to dull and mundane
you will always find fun here

When friends turn
on you with disdain
you will always have friends here

When in life's storm
of lightening and rain
you will always find sunshine here

Your words of appreciation are just what makes this place a home. YOU are Passions! It's wonderful to know all of you!

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!

Very true, I never dreamed that there could be a group of poeple like we are.  Little did they know that the original few, would create such a loving place.

Thank you for that

I'm not even close to being a founding member but I'm sure glad I found this place! *G* Great poem for a great gathering of poets and the man who make it possible!

Thanks OWU and Suthern for your wonderful comments. This is a warm and caring place for sure. I would have included more of the original members in my poem, like Nan, Balladeer and others but the above poem was based on the information that I was able to glean from the digital newsletter. I'm grateful to each and every one of them for the contributions that they each made and continue to make to make Passions the wonderful place that it is today! I'm also grateful for all the members, contributing poets and readers alike!

Denise
