Hey poets ... a friend gave me a cool request to do to mark my 3000th post...
instead of writing a new one she suggested I pick my most favorite one of all my poems...
and I thought how cool it would be to get to see all of yours as well.
So that is the challenge-- to think back of all your poems and pick just one that is your favorite for whatever the reason...be it sentimental or personal best achievement.
It's not easy to pick, they are like our children...it's hard to choose just one...
I have 144 poems posted here to date...but this is the one I wanted to repost and share again.
And I would also like to take this time to say how much I adore all of you and how grateful I am to this place and all of its poets.
The encouragement, inspiration, and friendships found here are my sanctuary.
Thank you all.




~Winds Of Change~

Poetic winds blow ... now sweetly swept away,
carry me to the place in you ... so that I might stay.
Safe passage to your harbors ... sail across your seas,
breath in all your pleasures ... set my spirit free.

Poetic winds blow ... gentle breezes take my will,
carry me to the place in you ... where time stands still.
Take me so far away ... to discover your beaches of sand,
under your starry skies ... I rise up ... heart in my hand.

Poetic winds blow ... quietly taken into the night,
carry me to the place in you ... warmed by desires light.
Baptize me in your mystical waters ... sun dry me on your shore,
caress me with your winds of change ... allow my heart to soar.

Poetic winds blow ... lift me up ... now Heaven bound,
carry me to the place in you ... where contentment is found.
Fly with me in twilight skies ... painted in hues by the setting sun,
as we fly free towards the rising moon ... two souls become one.

Janet Marie






 There are places inside our souls ...
that have never been touched.
There are places inside our hearts ...
that need to be loved this much.

Beautiful! and the graphics aren't bad either...you've made a place for yourself here! Some poets come and go. Others hang around forever and become part of the core, the heart, of Passions. You are one of those. I enjoy reading you. Congratulations.

Firstly, waking up to read your poem first time in the morning made this morning and the rest of the day beautiful.
Secondly those images are splendid I think I will book a holiday in one of those places. Now most importantly congratulations on your 3000 post.  A great challenge idea and a hard one as well.
Now to the poem,

Safe passage to your harbors ... sail across your seas,
breath in all your pleasures ... set my spirit free.

Poetic winds blow ... quietly taken into the night,
carry me to the place in you ... warmed by desires light.

Baptize me in your mystical waters ... sun dry me on your shore,
caress me with your winds of change ... allow my heart to soar.

Fly with me in twilight skies ... painted in hues by the setting sun,
as we fly free towards the rising moon ... two souls become one.

Poetic winds carry your words on the breeze so effortless
Graceful, beautiful heart's song, a magical poem,
just stole my breath, as always wonderful.

Congratulations on 3000 Janet Marie!  I can understand why you've chosen this one as your favorite too, it's so soothing, calming and flowing. Wonderful poem, and terrific challenge ... I've never thought about a "favorite before", I'll get thinking!

Congratulations again, and best wishes,

JM - Terrific poem - the thoughts were very longing...  as for your challenge - this is no fair! - I almost never save any of my poetry, and, for a short time, each new poem is my favorite - may I please bow out from this challenge??  Please?

Oh!  I love this line.  What a nice place to go to, too:

"carry me to the place in you ... where contentment is found"

I liked all the pictures that went with this, too.  I can't decide which poem is my favorite, though.  It may take me awhile.

I'm so glad you posted your favorite post for such a special occasion...but for picking one of my favorites, I wouldn't know who to begin with, let alone any of my own...

so I will have to ponder.  Very nice!

Jan~

Congratulations on 3000! You are one of my favorite poets of all time...I sincerely mean that. Each piece of you work is full of such love and honesty. I can see why this one would be your favorite. The words themselves flow together like wind and tides of the ocean do. I can only speak for myself at this forum...but it is an immense pleasure to read your work and be able to respond to it. Often times you take my thoughts and breath away from you writing. Then there are times when you write exactly how I am feeling but at that time unable to express. Then lol there are times when your writing holds such important values and morals...I want to print them right then and there and hang on my refrigerator. You truly do have a gift from the Heavens and God chose such a lovely soul to give it to. It is apparent to me that everyone at this forum loves you very much and we are extremely proud of you and wish you much love and happiness! Take care and once again congratulations.


Amy  
P.S. Brian...Book me a vacation to one of these places too k lol God knows I need one!!

It's up to you to make it happen."
