I had the most amazing day ... I just wanted to share,
for you see, days like this for me, are so very rare.
Moments of complete contentment ... don't happen much.
Not with all the work to do, and all the stress and such.
Today I woke quite early ... and the day was looking fine,
the clouds were kissing the sky and the sun shared it's shine.
All else were sleeping and I had the PC for my very own ...
so of course I headed to Passions ... my second home.
Sunday mornings are my fav, everyone's posting and replying.
I love to read your words ... I cant get my fill, there's no denying.
With my cup of hot raspberry tea and a bagel, I got in my favorite chair ...
and somehow 4 hours later ... I was STILL there.
I didn't get my dishes done, or my laundry either ...
too darn bad ... Sundays are for taking a breather.
I read so many poems ... I think I went blind ...
then I went back for more ... seeing who new I could find.
Along the way ... friends dropped in, with an E-mail or two ...
I even talked to one of my favorite poets by ICQ.
So many special moments ... in this day I found,
When I'm in Passions ... I know I'm heaven bound.
I laughed at my favorite jesters ...  Lord, I laughed until I cried.
I think I broke my own record -- for how many times I replied.
I got a precious Poetry E-card, from a very special friend,
and in return ... to her, one I did send.
All the time I was reading one perfect poem after another,
I believe I could sweetly drown in your words ... poetic sisters and brothers.
I found a couple old friends, who had been gone a day, a week or two ...
when you leave us ... don't ya know,  we really miss you.
I met some new poets who have such style and grace,
and then there are my MOST favorites, who daily put a smile on my face.
I read several poems that moved me to tears ...
and found many others I will remember for years.
It is in this special place, we find true poetic pleasure,
and we are given friends, who we will always treasure.
This place is truly magic ... I am so much better for its gifts.
You heal my heart and my tired spirit ... you always lift.
I thank you and God for this place every single day ...
for, it is in this place ... I have finally found my way.




 ...every moment of every day...
your still with me in every way.
every poem and song...
every rhyme and verse...
your still here...like a beautiful curse.

Janet, we feel the same way about you too!!

This was beautiful my friend. . .I can say that Passions has meant a lot to me too.  It has let me find that part of myself that had been dead for so long. . . you have captured that feeling very well here. . .

"This place is truly magic ... I am so much better for its gifts."  Me too Janet. . . me too. . .

For Janet Marie--a kiss on the cheek!

too, too sweet...if that's possible...and how I agree...but I like to fluff and fold while I read, m'self...laundry becomes moving meditation when it's done with Passion...lol...Do EVERYTHING with passion, twin!

Boy, you got the nail on the head with this one, Janet. Can't remember how many times I've gone to Passions for "just a minute or two" and wound up staying all day! Maybe it has something to do with the fact thet we have the nicest, most caring, compassionate people that exist all here in our tiny little bit of Heaven. Just a guess  


and, of course, in which you are one...and a very special one at that!

I really want the compliments to be for Passions and all of you...not me(blush)  
love ya, jm

 ...every moment of every day...
your still with me in every way.

Yes..I too am guilty. But what is life without poetry? Without kind words from friends far and near? It's nothing...we owe it to ourselves to have as much of that in our life! I say we should stay home one day a month and do nothing but hang out on Passions! Yes! Let's do it!  


Great poem by the way! LOL got carried away....

JM-can tell this was written straight from the heart. What a lovely thing to say to all of us. I believe most of us here at passions have had and done the same as you. Endless hours of reading with total enjoyment.
Thank-you

Where to start?  I was introduced to passions by a friend and have been made to feel most welcome, a part of the family, from the very start. I spend more time than I should here   and continue to be amazed by the talent that abounds here. Wonderful people and wonderful poets, a humbling expeirence for me. I'm glad to be a part of it and hope to continue so. Thanks everyone!

JanetMarie~
I'm sure most of us feel the same.
The pages of Passion's are full of
amazing friendships and talent galore.
Yeah ... it's a real nice place to be.

Janet Marie, I sit nodding my head in total agreement with your poem and all the replies and believe me when I say you help make it special as well. Passions is a home and a lovely one at that. (((((((((hugs jm))))))))

Janet Marie,
   So you want us to comment on all the poets and not on just you. Well, sorry to disappoint you, but the forum wouldn't be the same without YOU. You continue to read a great volume of the poems, and respond in depth and beauty to each one. And many times write exquite verses as a comment. You have a positive outlook which reaches out to all and is quite contageous. There are many times that I didn't feel an enthusiasm for writing until I happened on one of your exuberant responses. And just look at yourself, Janet Marie, in that poem above. Look at all the warmth and love you exude, and how you are getting everyone involved in the response. This poem is about YOU. I have many times remarked about the passions family, but this comment is about Janet Marie, a gifted poet and lovely friend. Thank you for your support to so many poets, including me, for doing so much reading and for always being there.
Love ya
Liz

Janet, your words are so kind and sweet, and I think your quite insane, overdosing on this passions narcotic. Hey, I think I'm just the same. Well here's another response, to remind you of that and all your special days. So keep writing your lovely poetry, cause I need a fix today.........

Well Miss Marie!  hehe  I think your poem is just simply divine!  Couldn't have said it better myself! I too am thankful for this place...it keeps me sane, and sometimes it even drives me to insanity - but how dull my life would be without it!  LOL  You have turned out to be one of my fondest friends...you always have kind words, and you're there through thick and thin, always offering up smiles and support!  You have good taste in men, and well, what else can I say!  ROFL  Thank you for all you've done, and for being such an active participant here in Passions!
