I know you.

You are the child, now grown,
hypnotized by the rhythmic cadence of Mother's voice.
You are the toddler, always falling,
exploring dark and hidden places, forever reaching.
You are the school child, still learning,
the word "Why?" imprinted on your psyche.
You are the teen, hormones flaring,
engulfed equally by love and lover's grief.
You are the adult, living life,
discovering joy and pain anew every day.

You are the man,
you are the woman,
you are the writer,
awash with memories,
drowning in feelings,
teeming with desires,
a vortex of wise answers
and wiser still questions.

I know you.
You are my brother, my sister, my other self.

I know you. I do.
You are a poet.

When was the last time
you posted, O friend of mine?
When did we last gaze
upon your uttered phrase?

And now we have one to see
and I give thanks, to you, from me.

Ron, a wonderful poem.

I know you. I do.
You are a poet

Thank you providing us with a wonderful haven where we may safely reveal ourselves and get to know other beautiful people that
without this ite we would never meet.

Ron,

I just want to say THANK YOU for Passions!

I had stopped writing for a long time before I found this place, and now I find something that inspires almost everyday!

Everyone here is just so friendly and civil! This place really is my second home, literally!

By the way ..... This poem ROCKS!!!



All my love,
Jeffrey

'I know you ...
you are a poet' ...
and therefore inclined with a tendency
toward forgetfulness.
Just where is the SUBMIT function for this gem ???????  

Wonderful thoughts, Ron.

Ever since I have joined Passions, I don't recall you posting a poem.  Perhaps this new software is bringing the best out in us all.

Encore! Encore!

A pleasure, indeed, to read this, Ron.

Your wisdom and insight make this poem, this place, a living treasure, and I thank you sincerely for that.

This is a wonderful poem!  

I would just like to thank you for this wonderful haven where poets can gather and share their gift.  Coming from a poet who shares her work with no one, this is a comforting and wonderful place where I can post my poetry without fear of ridicule or rejection.  Thank you for that!

Ron--I saw your name and it seemed to come with a smile that you made, dear sir, for I was afraid it wasn't you Ron, but another Ron.  I'm so glad to be able to read something that you have written...   Anyway...thanks for joining us here and for this wonderful place!...oh, and great poem!
