It started out as one man’s dream
And in the span of one short year
There’s been an ever-flowing stream
Of poet types from far and near.

The first, of course, was P. deVine
Who entered through Ron’s open door
With ‘Serenade Of Sirens’ fine
Then quickly added many more.

Ron’s second guest, Maria Byrne,
With ‘Unforgotten Words’ she came
Then third it was our Michael’s turn
And ‘Sleeping Beauty’ was the name.

So many poets after this
Albeit at a hectic pace
Have filled us with unmeasured bliss
While daily gathered in Ron’s place.


Thanks for listening to that small tickle in the back of your mind, Ron!  You have created a place of joy and friendship for all of us!

Thanks Denise for this wonderful poem about the beginnings, and you Ron for the tickle that started it.  This poem tickled me.

Denise-

What a great and important reminder that Passions wouldn't even be here if it wasn't for the creator!  I thank you too, Ron, for creating this wonderful place... no this wonderful home!

Oh, Denise, this is wonderful!! It brought back some great memories...I was posting poetry on what used to be MiningCo.com poetry forum. Ron was posting there too. He replied nicely to my work, with words of praise to my surprise. I admired his work and lo and behold, he told me he had started a site that would take poetry submissions. I checked it out..read all his work...and was amazed at this man's talent! I submitted one poem...and it was accepted...!!!

Then Maria submitted. I had talked to Michael on MiningCo.com and when he posted, it was like the beginning of a family.

I haven't posted many poems there..but have so enjoyed reading the others...there are so many good ones!  I still get fan letters about some of them.

Then in March, Ron created a forum on the site. I wasn't secure enough in my talent to post then...when he opened a second one, I did join in..and that one progressed into the site you see today.

I am so proud to have been a 'founding' member so to speak. And I've made so many lasting friendships from being here.

I would like to add a special thanks to Ron. For without him, my life be different. I would not write as much as I do...I've gained more confidence in my work and myself. I appreciate all he's done for me and know that there is nothing I can ever do to repay him....

Thank you, Denise, for this small tickle..a wonderful reminder of where we all began...

Denise...this poem is so creative and great and obviously pulling at the heartstrings of the members who helped create this amazing site...I have been looking for one of your poems for days...as I wanted to say thank you so much for all the kind words you have replied to my posts...I have seen so many of your encouraging replies to all in here...in every forum...you are the site's head cheerleader... as  well as a talented poet...take care Janet Marie...ps...love your Icon choice(smile)

 Some things cannot be explained by verses that rhyme,
They are not measured by the commitment of time.
Some emotions run too deep to be described by words,
Forgiveness and understanding-
remain the most beautiful words ever heard.

Denise,

I belong to another poetry forum, formed ourselves when MS dumped its chat rooms (well, the intelligent ones, anyway), and I know how much work it takes to get one going, to keep the enthusiam up, and to keep it going.  

I take my hat off to ya'll.

Denise,
You are truly "The Guardian Angel of the Forum", reading everbody's poetry and responding in such a gracious fashion. My sincere thanks to you for all your contributions to this forum.
As for Ron, I think this forum reflects the character and integrity of the one who founded it and of those first pioneers. It is your "home" to which we have come, and I love the surroundings. Congratulations and thanks to you all.
And incidently, Denise, I greatly admire all of your work, including this lovely poem.
Liz

I have six words for you, sweet Denise:

The Books of Genesis and Revelation.  

Now look what you've done! I'm going to have to go back and read all of those poems leading up to now...lol   Wonderful poem from an even more wonderful poet!

I think now's a good time to say thank you for all those replies you gave to my posts...you were almost always (roughly 80% of the time) the first to reply, and since "Faith in Dreams" I've kept the Corner Pub as an almost permanent fixture in my taskbar.  
You've helped this pathetic little dragon so much, and even more so now that you've given him some incredible and amazing poets to look at (first and foremost being yourself).

Thank you for everything, Denise!!!!

Denise-
You are just MARVELOUS !

A fitting and tender acknowledgement to the beginning of a wonderful 'family' place.

The talent here is remarkable.
I've learned and grown with inspiration since coming to the forums.

What an adventure it's been !
Ron is a wonderfully talented man.
I too thank him from the bottom of my heart.

Denise!  This is Great!  I've noticed so many people writing about the forum as of late, and all of the poems just exude total joy over having such a haven.  What a wonderful outlet this place is.....with such fellowship, too.  Thanks, Ron person, for coming up with such a great spot for us to kick up our heels!

I may only be a new member, but reading this poem and the comments given to it, I feel like this site is a wonderful place to be, and I feel fortunate to have stumbled upon it.  Thank you all for posting these responses that are so tender and make such a timid person as myself feel so welcome!

This is a wonderful poetry site and of course all the thanks must go to the creators who birthed it brand new.
Thanks Ron, Poet Devine, Maria, Michael, and Denise too.
As a member of this Passionate Forum I sincerely salute you.   James
