My Hug to Everyone at Passions

by Michael


With each poem,
we give ourselves away.  

Imprinted on the minds
of all that read
are small pieces of our lives,
impressions
of what we think and believe.  

Reading, I come across
many troubled hearts,
broken lives,
lost hopes and dreams.  

I also come across
writers that have overcome
lifeís travails
and in their poetry,
offer insight
into how they accomplished this.  

I see romantics,
people in search of love,
ones that have found it,
others that continually
mishandle their relationships
and then ask why itís not working.  

There are poets
with painful childhoods
that have carried these hurts
into their adult lives,
even though they are guiltless
and should feel no shame at all.  

There are poets
that canít spell,
some that canít write very well,
others that are very talented.  

Each of us has something to say
and we do so as best we are able.  

Imagine two arms
surrounding all of the poets
at Passions
and you will see the hug
that I give to all of you.  

I wish you my very best.

Please continue to write
and let us glimpse what it is
that makes you special.  

Proust-
"Love is space and time measured by the heart"

You are so kind; and you are so correct, we DO give ourselves away, little by little but I know it's worth it if just one person stops and reflects on our words.  (((((((((hugs)))))

And a hug back to you.  Yes we do write about our lives and hold little back in our poetry.  We can always pretend we're writing about someone else.  Thank you for your kindness.  Joyce

I've tried to hide my passion,
but it's just no use...
piece by piece I lose it
when you walk in the room...

Michael
This was lovely and so very true.  Many of my closest friends don't know of some of the things I write about.....I guess there are certain things we aren't comfortable sharing with some people? Take care....Sue

Everyone,

Thank you so much for reading this and for the many hugs in return.  You are all such good writers and I often think of this place and you as a school from which I can learn.  You're special people and friends.  

((((hugs))))
