Listening to every heart
GR, if I may...most of your Previous Time before the incident occurred was spent in interacting, pretty much, with one poet on the site. I truly don't believe that you've given enough time to the members of PiP to get to know you and your poetry.
It takes time to get to know one another. Leaving responses does not automatically guarantee that you will receive same. I would venture to guess that of our 7,000 plus members, 10% may know of your apology?
Good, interactive responses that contain questions, or refer somehow to the poem, create conversation. Take time to get to know us, allow us to get to know you better, and before you know it, you will be receiving the responses you wish for.
I've been around over four years. I can post a poem and it will end up on page 5 in two days time [I set my cookies to see 200 pages at once] and have only three replies. Does that mean I haven't been responding? Hardly. I think I leave a good ten responses for every poem I put up.
A last thought. It's not in the numbers; it is in how people are affected by our poetry that really counts.
Stay the course. Time is on your side.
