Ah, here's a challenge
You all may say
What challenge does she
Have for us today?


They'll be a lot
Of writing to do
Because I ask what Passions
Has meant to all of you

Ok, there's the challenge... my very first. Write a poem about what Passions has meant to you! I'll look forward to seeing what you talented people have to say!

OK, here's mine!

I forget how I found it
But I donít really care
Because itís a part of my life
It will always be there

At first, all I did was read
Then the poet began to grow
Then I wrote, and finally posted
They said it was good! What do ya know?

Friends are very easy to make
In a friendly place like this
There are so many of you here
Your friendship is such bliss

And then, something happened
I made a new best friend
Yes, that what you are, Liz
My friend, until the end

I made many other friends, too
Like Mistikman and Jer
Whenever I need someone to talk to
I know they will always be there

Although I havenít been here long
Passions has helped me with hard times
You also taught me about free-form
And better ways to rhyme

Whenever you make a wonderful post
Sometimes, you may never know
How much it has touched me
Through your poetry, I grow

And, whenever live is too much
When I canít take it anymore
I visit my Passionís family
And Iím better than ever before!

Little LoveBug~
Delightful ... you've touched on the very reasons we all move in here and stay -
Friendship
Encouragement
Inspiration
Quality

Pretty valid reasons, huh?

I'll have to think a little longer about this one. Passions is just the best thing ever! I need to write something that is good enough to be about it. I'll get back to you!

Poets enjoined, expressing words
And emotions for all to see
Sadness, pain and joy revealed
Shared here so openly
Ideas heard, lessons learned
Old friends and new galore
Needed hugs and welcome smiles
Support and so much more

Passions in Poetry

Passions, to me, is a great place to be.
When I found it I was alone,
But now it is my family.
A family that shares and is willing to listen,
A collection of poems that, like diamonds, glisten.

When I am here, I feel so warm,
This is the best place to shelter from lifeís storms.
No one has laughed at my poor attempts at poetry,
Have you any idea  how much that means to me?
Passions is my second home, I hope that doesnít sound lame,
It warms me within like a bright, glowing flame.

Ron, you are an angel, how did you create such a wonderful place...
Free from prejudice of colour, size. looks or race.
Every time I visit my heart starts to sing,
This haven truly has given my soul wings.

I have laughed, I have cried,  I have smiled, I have sighed.
About my feelings I have never had to lie.
Passions is a gift that fills me with delight,
From lifeís burdens it gives me respite.

Passions, for me, has opened a door,
It has a special place in my heart for evermore.

I love you Passions!!! I love all you wonderful poets who have shared such beautiful poetry, I can never thank you all enough. Love to everybody

Passions=Solace
Tenderness
Hope
Jump on my back
I'll give you a piggy ride

Romantic I'm not so
But your acceptance
Makes me wonder
Who you are
To love me
So gently

I am not afraid anymore
Of the monsters under my bed

A hand to hold
In the dark night
A story told
With familiar light

A release of pain
without judment's fear
Others finding the same
soul seaching here

Never again alone
or afraid of my soul
True feelings shown
Starting to feel whole

Home for the heart ache
a port for the weary
A release of the heartbreak
Often leaving teary

But all in all
a place of peace
A soft place to fall
a place of sweet release

**Thank you to all that have allowed their words of pain allow others to heal and to find comfort in the *arms* of your words**
