You each amaze me ... every one,
   For never have I found,
A group of people oh so sweet,
   Where sentiments a'bound.

Each poem is like a lovely game,
   They're posted here with care,
Where anxiously the writer waits
   To hear back from their peers.

And lucky are the ones who find
   Such interested souls,
To volley back their comments with
   Kind sentiments two-fold.

              PONG

I would kiss each and every one
who's making Ping-Pong so much fun...
but a cyber hug will have to do...
as I PONG this back up to you...

HUGS! {~,~}

Ok folks, now what's the score?
What shall we speak of now?
Shall it be love or hate,
Or simply purple cows?

Come on poets, you decide
What you would like to sing.
Then we'll keep this game in action...
Who will take this *PING*!

Love and hugs,
Lizzie

The crux of the matter is its core,
Love or hate, is a matter of opinion,
Talk we will,ofcourse, of life's score,
Tied to one's fate like a pinion.

Will it be cows, or will there be vows,
Exchanged on the wedding day,
Will they be purple, pink or scarlet fantasy crows,
Each day a new page, more light, another ray.

While one debates on whether to ping
or whether to pong or to kiss or hug,
I will like to find something
as cosy as my dear soft rug...

well what'd ya know
I can hear the poet's call
sudhir -- here's a warm cozy hug
much more snug then your rug

ESP - would send you candy,
but you are already sweet
and your poetry is such a treat

And, now Kit has joined our
ping pong game
and is on the way to ping pong fame

Oh can't forget sunshine and Janet Marie
as they pass the ping pong -
back and forth -- guess this time
it landed on me

This game of ping-pong has gotten kinda crazy
I am sorry I'm only joining now...I been so busy...its not that I'm lazy (LOL)
Im sorta clumsy and never been too good at sports, unless its the sport of love
But gosh darn it, everytime I swing the paddle I barely make the net
I know I am suppose to try harder and hit it above
As I was reading this little game of ping pong, i saw a lot of mention of kissing
Did I really see it...or is it more like hopeful wishing (lol)
Well yeah i finally hit the ball and sent it to the other side
I bet ESP is really happy now...her smile she can not hide  

Is this ping or pong? lol

ping and pong...
new friends came to play along.
And in their rhymes they all ask for a kiss!!
It makes my poetic lips smile...let me tell you this.
See Lizzie & SUN...
Im not the only one..(LOL)
There is nothing more romantic than a tender kiss...
its the one thing I surely miss...
right now my muse is mad at me...
shes no where that I can see.
so I'll play ping pong to keep in line
and hope she'll come back soon ,feeling fine
and you cant bet when she returns...
Im gonna KISS her till ME LIPS DO BURN!!!!    




PONG>>>>>>>>>>>>

While janet is off kissing....i am busy hopefully wishing
oh what's thatyou say... were suppose to be playing the ping pong game
i think i just heard someone call my name
I told you I am not very good at this sport, ahhh but i will try anyway
maybe if i hit it hard enough, i can send it the other way
so one two three, here i go...and i hit it with all my might
and whatdya know there goes the ball sailing in flight
so now for sure the game has continued, the ball has yet to touch the ground
and so yet we begin another game of ping pong, another interesting round

PING!!

well what do you know, i hit the ball back to myself
i told you i can't play...and that i really do need help lol
but while i got the ball i'd like to take a minute or two
to tell you how much fun it is to play ping pon with the likes of all of you
i know there is no suject that anyone has picked out
unless its the subject of kissing, that's janet's thing....THAT THERE IS NO DOUBT  
well i guess it's time for me to serve and hit this ball in the air
Yes I can hit the ball, I'm not that clumsy yet you all still stare (hehe)
I am really having fun now sending out this rhyme
We gotta keep this going, before we run out of time
you know the moderators are gonna get tired, and this is gonna get tossed soon
i only hope we can make it to perhaps early june
so here i hit the ball and serve it to someone else...i can hear someone hissing
or is that janet off performing her favorite sport...the art of romantic kissing?  

*sorry i know it was bad rhyming lol*

PING!!

Moderators, oh Moderators beware,
this ping-ponged ball is going somewhere;
it goes north, south, east, west,
where it lands is anyone's guess...

some of us are romantically strung,
and others of us have yet to begun
a simple stream of poetry,
where are the other players? for the life of me

I cannot guess where Marge does sit,
nor Sharon, she's due for a hit...
now 'Deer, c'mon be a sport,
and LJA, dock that ship at port

and come one, come all to watch and view
this Ping Pong show, it's just for YOU!

still no topic to this ping pong game i see
hm..let me think what could a topic be.
We could do the usual poetry
about hurt and pain
but i myself have had enough of that
to make me go insane.
wait a minute
i'll be right back.
I hear the ice cream truck
and think it's time for a small snack.
pop goes the weasel
is the song the truck plays
as i sit waiting in line
for an icecream on the first hot summer day.
Kids are running from every where.
deciding what kind of ice cream they want
smiling so free with out a care.
counting their change
doing the math.
i guarantee when they are done
they'll all need a bath.
Quarters, Nikels and dimes galore
There will be no change to spare
They have no money left
and only pocket lint to share.


PONG (i think)


 Don't fear failure so
much that you refuse to
try new things. The
saddest summary of a
life contains three
descriptions:
could have,
might have,
and should have.

Been watching this game with such delight
I guess its my turn to hit, now isn't that a fright
So now icecream is the topic of choice I see
What kinds of icecream do u all like..my favorites are vanailla and strawberry
Icecream hits the spot on a hot summers day
Sorry back to the ping pong game, I didn't mean to stray
We've been pinging this pong for a few days and all seems well
Playing this game with all of you makes me feel swell
So sending this ball back over the net
A clever rhyme is going to come from this horrible one I'll bet (lol)

YOU SCREAM...I SCREAM...
WE ALL SCREAM FOR ICE CREAM.

I just LOVE ice cream-- we all do-- I bet..
I  have never met a flavor...I didnt like yet.
Cookie dough is so yummy .
and so is cherry chip in the tummy.
Chocolate ANYTHING is heaven sent...
and even good old vanilla gets my cravings bent.
I love butter pecan and banana split too
I love to eat them in a cone...how about YOU?
I lick and smack untill my lips are frozen in BLISS...
and you know how I thaw them out>>>
(say it with me Sun and Liz)
with a BIG OLD RED HOT KISS !!!! LOL ;>

Oh, my, I took a break
from this frantic ping pong game
and see we have a new joiner
and amy is her name

I see JM is now a smacking her sassy lips
for into that cold ice cream she has dipped
banana split is my dream with cream whipped

I had this banana split in mind
topped with a cherry so fine
when the ping pong ball did
land in my dish with a mighty plop
now my face is filled with whipped cream blop

well, swan is playing in whip cream...
hey thats kind of kinky!!
and you know I like the sound of that...
*winkie-winkie*  
But before my mind wanders...
trying to keep it clean,
I ping this pong back up to top...
and I eat some more ice cream.
I should be sleeping now...
I was up looking for my muse...
shes over there flirting with parker
talking about a romantic cruise..
maybe on the LOVE BOAT she should go...
I think the break would do her good...
romance is so good for inspiration,this I know.
Well its bed time now...so off to dream am I..
Ill serve this ball off again...
and well see who else stops by

So many poets,
so many people,
Some did a ping-pong duet,
Others mused a trifle.

I watched from afar,
Sometimes got myself dragged into it,
If I had to store the ping in a car,
I would have had to struggle with it.

Mind does what mind thinks,
Often of troubles, kisses, and tales of heart,
For once clear of the bothers and winks,
We even talk about ping-pong and art.

Whoever thought the game was for two or four,
This game is for even more,
Each one here has gained a score,
The crux of the matter is the core as I said before.

When I look at the count so far,
After having seen this topic thus far,
I am score number sixty-six,
To become a beast, all I need is another six.

Love, hugs, kisses and crushes,
Relations, caring, friedly gestures,
Oh dear! How the vagrant mind rushes,
Making ever so frequent overtures.

A passing meadow, plush with green grass,
What a beautiful sight in the blooming of spring,
I rush out to the fields, a gentle caress,
The bumble bees collect themselves and sing.

A summer song, it was so pleasant,
I wandered out and stopped bothering,
I came back and saw work as a tyrant,
Till I decided that I would have a go at ping.

PONG

So we take a break from Ping Pong
And start eating ice cream!
Chocolate and Vanilla swirl for me,
I know it'll taste like a dream!

Moderators will go insane I fear,
This is thread is lasting so long.
Now be nice Moderators, dears...
Let Passions Poets keep on with their song!

June is only twenty one days away,
Will this Ping Pong last?
Come on all you poets out there,
Give the ball a blast!!
------------------------------

Love and hugs,
Lizzie

Do you really think that
we can play ping pong 'til June
the moderators will be howling to the moon

Hello Sudhir I see you have come
to join the fun

Don't feel like art today,
nor ice cream -- just want to play
ping pong and sing some songs
does anyone want to sing along?

Just what are the rules
of this game of ping pong?

SERVICE
PONG

Shall we not reach a hundred replies
With this thread of Ping Pong?
I am giving this lil ball
A huge whopping big Bong!

To a Passions Poet
Who wants to continue
Singing this silly song,
If ya don't, me "BOO HOO"!

Come poets, far and near,
Try your hand at this game.
Everybody, whatever age or stage,
Young boy or old dame!

If I was a ball
I'd go Ping, Pong, Ping, Pong.
But since I'm a poet,
I'll go swish, and hit!
-----------------------

C'mon guys, keep this going!

Love and hugs,
Lizzie

Well, ok then, what should I do
Let it pass me by? No way, I catched it with my shoe.
Ping Pong sounds just like a song
A song where everybody does belong
No one is left out, lets play
Ping Pong it's for love, that's what I say
I find it only fair
Cause who want's to be a millionear
The ball is like a dancer
And that's my final answer
The Ping and Pong is on the move again
It bounces here and there and then
Catch it if you can


 The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.

Whats all this talk of moderator fear.
They're too sweet to lock our game of PING PONG so dear.
Why dont we invite them all to play along.
Then they will sing our ping pong song.
Michael and Nan can be on the same team.
Balladeer and Hoot will can challenge their winning dream.
Wonder which team will score the most,
wonder if they even read this long darn post.  
Sun and Lizzie can play the winners...
I gotta go and cook my kids dinners.

Ping and a Pong, Ping and a Pong
this game we are playing has gone on so long
Although you are tired, we must keep it going
I know all the Poets can keep it flowing
Don't make me a liar, come and help out
We don't want to see ESP pout!
