Windrider,
What a lovely tribute to beautiful friend.
I hope she keeps writing and gets so much poetry accumulated, that she'll feel almost guilty not to share it with us. That'll get her back.
Anyway, you write a marvelous verse, Windrider

Oooops!
My hand slipped and I inadvertantly clicked and accidently brought this lovely poem back to the top.
My appologies
Liz

But as long as it's here, may I say that Cindy dear, you are missed

Hmm... It seems quite apparent to me now - Without a Rainbow everyone loses.... With a Rainbow -  everyone wins... You do the math..

My big......est laugh..!

I don't know where to start my chuckling or who's words I should borrow.

There once was critical poster
who rewrote everyoneís work
one day a girl jester thought
Iíll put in someone elses work
when the critical bboob read it
he just had to reply
I wonder can he see how
heís a laughing stock
when they now read his
replies.

I just had to say something............Hum........mmmmmm

You can't go anywhere yet... You bring out the best in us all. It appears that many of us everywhere need to open our eyes, and besides if you drop out you'll never get that diploma document issueded by the University of Passion's 'stute, testifying that you earned such and such degree and have successfully completed the course. But it is still my opinion conferring and it's still a privilege and honor to read your work.

And too, the kids have been driving us out of house and home for years so we bought an RV just for the occasion and it's our turn to be running away. But if you do want to... I'm sorry, but you'll have to get in line, so don't even think about it. It's a long line too.

Pepper,
Do you mean "Oooops", like "Oooops, I accidently sent this to the top again?

While we're here at the top, how about another toast to friendships. of those friends who aren't with us in voice, but are with us in spirit. Those friends whom we never forget, for they are the very friends who were there for us when we needed them, always with beautiful words of encouragement.
Those friends who never let you down, and never allow someone else to separate you, those friends with hearts of gold, faces of courage, and exquisite spirits. Here's to you, friends.
Gosh, it almost sounded like I was describing Cindy. That's a coincidence!
OK Cindy, here's to you, too.
Cheers!
Liz

So many people
need to hear from you most likely
wanting a creamy subtle old fashioned
scrolled letter in some exotic plume with
an ink bottle calligraphy effect and
winsome quotations a few
words accompanied
too by a lovely sentiment
of whatís been what and whoís
been heard many incredible but laid back
writers never thinking to write or uttering a word
what an embossing filigree of people segregating them
selves to disagree in all appearance itís so absurd and in
most cases I fail to see what they could possibly want
of you the list goes on & youíll agree remember
your friends a few favorites and those weird
introductions to maybe others or some
special ones yet why would you
write never writing to none.

Come on back here
you don't want
to be a
sniff

You can leave home
But not if the home goes with you

I left my home at poetryís Passions
In my graceful, gracious fashion
And everybody said good-bye
It seems now such a lie

I walked away with tearful eyes
My feelings I did not disguise
I forged ahead and didnít look back
They wonít get off my back

I explained so kindly  I was leaving
No attempt to be deceiving
I  was honest all along
But they keep hanging on

How will I ever make them see
That they canít go along with me
My worries they canít truly know
But they just wonít let go

But suddenly my heartís awaking
Now I see what they are making
A wide umbrella, soft and warm
To shield me from the storm

They are not treading on my road
Or adding burden to my load
But merely floating there above
A canopy of love

With every raging storm at sea
My friends will always be with me
A canopy of Passions own
A home away from home

Thanks, Elizabeth. *G* I'm glad we're a canopy... I'm afraid it would get a tad crowded with us us all riding piggy-back as she tried to escape. *G*

And Toe... if that doesn't get her back in here at least long enough to rebuke you... might I suggest a menu change? *G* Say... from foreign food to some savory suthern dishes? *EG*

The light has dimmed tonight
a poet laid down her pen
she wrote from a loving heart
but vows never to do so again
What light she had shone here
unseen by many of you
a poet's pen lain to rest
rending her heart in two.
