Although we've only known each other less than a year, I feel I've known you all my life. Be well, Ruth, and if Bozo doesn't treat you the way you deserve to be, there's a balladeer, long john and Toe that are gonna have a little "talk" with him because you are family and we look out for our own. Be well, Ruth. Many people here love you. I am one.

Ruth, I haven't been at this site very long, but in the short time I have been here it has been like one big family. I shall miss your beautiful poems and wonderful words, and the selfish part of me will miss your supportive and kind coments. Take care, may God be by your side always.

"Will you accuse me as I hide Behind these layers of disguise And the mirrors of my own happiness.I've loved the freedom of being inside
Need a new start and a different time
Something grows in the space between me
And it's twisting and changing this fragile body" -Nicky Wire

Now Ruth... If you're really gonna insist on running off and being in love... humph... The least you can do is write while you're off having fun.. You still have a pen & paper, right??? I mean, after all - what's better to read than stuff about the "real thing"...????
There's no rest for the happy and contented, ya know...

Come visit soon & often, my friend..
Love ya

Ruth, I'll miss seeing your work.  It never ceased to amaze me.  Thank you for helping out this fledgling poet the way you have.  Perhaps someday, we'll both have bylines together in Our Journey.  What an honor that'd be!

i guess im a little too late and i hope you still get this.  When i first found this site i was just someone who came on to read.  Your poem was the first one i ever read.  I loved it and it inspired me to write.  i remember thanking you and i will do it again.  Thank you hoot helped me pick up the pen that was put down for such a long time.  I know my poetry will never compare with yours, but it's nice to know that i can still get inspired.  Take care of yourself and don't forget to drop by once and a while.  we will miss you hoot-owl.

We'll miss you, but understand.  I enjoyed this poem so much - such warm, touching thoughts.  I'll be thinking about you and hope wonderful things come your way!


I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean. Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens. Promise me you'll give faith a fighting chance. And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance - I hope you dance.

Although I've not been here long enough to appreciate this poet and to feel her loss, I still thought this latest poem was quite well done.

I wrote a similar poem earlier.  Well, it wasn't about eyes, but about a woman I'd seen in a picture.

Take care, dear Hoot. Your poems are insightful and delightful... your caring and compassion are even lovelier than your words. *S* I wish you every happiness and a long life of good health. And if Toe, LJA, and Balladeer need help, I'll be glad to kick ankles if your man isn't good to you... for you deserve the very best! From one Ruth to another... enjoy every moment!!

Gee, way down the list here, with all those heavyweight poets above me, I feel kinda small, but did want to say that although I know you not, what I have read of your work, including this piece, and from all the comments I have seen, not knowing you has been my loss, indeed.  The best to you in life....

And just when I got back to Passions!  Beautiful poem Ruth.  I will need to go back and catch up on some of your others from the past few months.  Will look forward to reading when you post. Good luck and take care.

You were always a great inspiration and full of encouragement. I'm glad you are not doing away with your pen. You will be missed as a moderator though.
