As of today, I will no longer be moderator on passions per my own choice. With the recent and ongoing health problems I've been having and the serious relationship I'm in, I've found that my priorities have been a bit redirected. I have been trying to spend time on me...getting well mentally and physically, with my family, because of this, I have little time to be online. I just want to thank you all for your continued support of my work and I'll be dropping in from time to time to post and read. God bless you all
Hugs  
Ruth

Her Eyes

Her eyes can shine like diamonds
Or can slowly burn with fire
They can take you to the brink of passion
Consume you with desire

Her eyes can whisper secrets
Or shout with just one glance
They can speak of dreams and happiness
They can make a lame man dance

Her eyes can take you miles away
Or draw you in so deep
They’ll entice the sadest man to laugh
Or cause the strong to weep

Her eyes can raise you to new heights
Or bring you to your knees
They can cast you out into the wind
Or drown you in their seas

They can make you curse the heavens
Or thank the stars above
Her eyes can flash in waves of anger
Or can glimmer soft of love

Her eyes can make the wisest man
Look like a stumbling fool
They can reveal what’s in her heart
Be the windows to her soul

They can sparkle like the summer sun
Up in the sky so blue
But there’s nothing like the way they shine
When her eyes, they shine for you


 To love means never to be afraid of the windstorms of life: should you shield the canyons from the windstorms you would never see the true beauty of their carvings. ~Elizabeth Kubler-Ross

It is really sad to hear this, but like I always think, certain tough decisions need to be taken at correct times forcing ceratin unwarranted situations, but thats the way it is in the bizarre 4-letter word called LIFE.

Good Luck, Ruth, will be waiting to see what you offer at the times that you would hoot around...

by the way, this poem is a exotic poem written from deep within your soul... really enjoyed it, particularly the words,

Her eyes can raise you to new heights
Or bring you to your knees
They can cast you out into the wind
Or drown you in their seas
....
....
They can sparkle like the summer sun
Up in the sky so blue
But there’s nothing like the way they shine
When her eyes, they shine for you
....

the shine from your eyes will be missed...and be long awaited always
Take care,
regards, sudhir


 Hey you, out there in the cold,
Getting lonely, getting old, can you feel me?
Hey you, standing in the aisle,
With itchy feet and fading smile, can you feel me?
Hey you, don't help them to bury the light.
Don't give in without a fight.
Hey you, out there on your own,
Sitting naked by the phone, would you touch me?
Hey you, with your ear against the wall,
Waiting for someone to call out, would you touch me?
Hey you, would you help me to carry the stone?
Open your heart, I'm coming home....

by Roger Waters (Pink Floyd) - The Wall

I feel sad that you have decided to do this, but so overwhelmingly happy that you now have someone in your life that appreciates the lovely woman you are. Take care of your health, I can see that your happiness is shining in your words. Hope to read you soon. Take care, Sharon

Lucky...I haven'y got a clue about retiring....but when ever I get to that point (at about 100 from the looks of social security today) I'll fill you in on all the details  

Denise...you'd have to hog tie me to keep me out   Thanks for everything you are my friend  

Corazon...you are a dear person and one who would know more than anyone what this means to me in my life right now. I am at a place I didn't think I would ever be at and I'm taking the time to enjoy it. Big hugs my friend, I'll keep in touch  

PDV...Not to worry, passions is still home and sometimes it's nice to leave home for a while, but it's also always nice to return  

walt...try and stop me  

LJA...Hey, it's nice to see you around Sir Long John...friendly smooch here from me too. I'll be around, just perhaps not as active as I once was  

Parker...I'll try my best

i'm so very happy to hear that life is treating you so well... that you are taking care of yourself and that you have someone to share your time with you.... i pray your health problems will be minimized and vanish and that your new directions take you to fulfilling places you had only before dreamed about...

this was a very lovely poem and i enjoyed seeing through your eyes if only for a moment

god bless and take care! best of life to you!

     Well, my friend, I am sorry to see you go for any length of time, because I know I will miss you.  But I am so happy for you that you are at a place in your life where you are finding what you have searched for and I want more than anyone for you to have the time to enjoy it.  I wish you all the blessings that you could ever have.  And remember, ewven if you don't come back to passions as frequently as you once did, there is still a little thing called   ***E-Mail***



Love Ya, Dear~

Take Care~

{{{{Great Big Hugs}}}}

and I am all the better for it~

Hoot, for the short time I've been on line I have enjoyed reading your verses that rhyme.  
All of these you've shared have been written with such grace and style that only one named 'Hoot' can be the bearer.

May your days ahead be happy ones

dear ruth, you will be sorely missed here, as a moderator, friend, critic, and beautifully talented poet.

This poem definitely exemplifies all the wiles of feminine charm. and let me say that not all of those gifts are always appreciated. like bringing us to our knees. that's painful for some of us, you know. especially when you just do it for fun. but you women aren't all bad either. i don't know what i'd do without chicks.

a good ending to a saga in your life. come back and visit!

 We all got somethin' we need to atone for.
