My friend, you have style
Arresting words to beguile
Romantic, passionate, so full of heat
Kisses so gentle, I melt to my seat

~~*~~

Beautiful immagery left in mind
Of lovely phrases I love to find
Hand to heart, I often sigh
And sometimes softly, quietly cry
Never lacking, your poetry true
Naked emotions showing through
Always willing to lend an ear
No wonder so many love you dear!

Ahhhhh my dear, don't you know?  The beauty that you find in my works is in the eyes that YOU read them with and inspired by ALL the wonderful poets within these walls.  I LEARN DAILY from you all and am left with such a wonderful feeling from my reading that I can't help but try to thank you all by trying to share just a portion of what I see through all the wonderful works here.  As you know, I was new to writing when I came here in June and any growth I have done is because of the Passionate Poets themselves.  Thank you my sweet friend.  If you were within arms reach I would just reach out and hug and kiss you to death for this one.  It truely means the world to me that you enjoy my poetry and you gotta know that by now.  I am humbled and full emotions right now, so I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

A life with love will have some thorns, but a life without love will have no roses.

Circe, this is truly beautiful, it's true his works are utterly amazing, but so are yours love. And this one is a prime example, a wonderfully well written example of your loving and giving heart. Really superb work
Take care

And I will forever cherish you my friend.  Thank you once again and I too enjoy the teasing and your great natured way of handling them.  You sure know how to make a cowboy find inspiration.

Awww SEA, how sweet..such special heartfelt words for such a special person...  
He has his own special little way of touching so many hearts and souls and yet he wonders why we sometimes get a little wet-cheeked...Lovely words from you, but I know not to expect any less....Hugs...  ~LL~

Well, on a serious note, SEA, it will take a lot to do a man and poet like Mark justice 'cause he's one of the finest in both categories.....but ya done REAL  good!

Sea-gator you did do him justice ...
this is perfect and a wonderful tribute.
Marks poetry is very special and evokes many emotions out of us...
he is a very gifted poet...even if he doesnt always believe it...
but if I keep nagging him enough on the phone
maybe he'll start to believe me    
and this is perfect proof of my poetic point
try saying that with this overbite

if you find anything~let me in
Your eyes~you see everything
