Gathering Moments

Gathering moments to etch in the mind
Bonding of friendships with laces of time
Tying the threads of these days that we hold
That are woven among us in ribbons of gold

These are the friends we will cherish til death
This is the fragrance that fills every breath
This is the garden of roses I keep
And study their beauty as I fall asleep

Verses will tell of the heart's sweetest bliss
But words cannot capture a friend such as this
Wrapped in a memory with laces of gold
A now and then present for life to unfold


We have all gathered friendship's at Passions. This poem is for all poets and all friends. Wish you could be with us, though you are in spirit.
HUGS from Cape Cod

Liz

A Little Pinch

It's funny how perceptions are, when one has never met
The personalities that they've conversed with on the net;
I will confess, I'm rather shy, as some may be aware,
So travelling this distance took a lot of thought and care.

I wondered if my expectations would be followed through;
I pondered on what I would think, when I met each of you;
I played it out in my mind's eye, a thousand times at best,
And wondered if when you met "me" ... would I too, pass the test?

I've known you for so very long ... knew all your hopes and dreams;
I've laughed with you, I've cried with you, for several years it seems;
How strange, the hesitation, as I stepped from off the plane ...
Would "I" be who you thought I'd be? Would "I" fulfill my name?

With nervous apprehension, I meandered down the stairs,
And there stood Nan, a smile in place to greet me unawares;
I hugged her once, I hugged her twice ... I pinched her several times;
I had to know that she was real, beyond poetic lines.

She hugged me back, and with a wink, she gave a knowing smile;
That's all it took, I knew from there, I'd known her all the while.
Not long behind, I got to meet each heart behind a name,
And with each smiling gaze I met ... it seems I felt the same.

The moment that I saw each face, their warmth came tumbling through;
Just like their words, each poet is ... as real as me or you.
I'll cherish this forever ... but forgive me just and inch ...
If off and on, I lean to you ... and give a little pinch.  

/Kit

The Florida team hopped the plane,
But missed their next connect.
They figured they should drive the rest,
So we could intersect.

New York was such a major glitch
It took them hours to pass.
Five thirty in the morning fore
They finally reached Mass...

But Sy and Deer were smiling still,
So grateful to be here;
And we all giggled when we got
A super ball from Deer...!

(to the tune of Ding Dong The Wicked Witch Is Dead...from The Wizard of Oz)

Ding Dong, It's Balladeer
He's finally come, He's finally here
Hey Ho, we met the Balladeer
He's come from the southern coast
He does exist, He's not a ghost
Hey ho, Three cheers for Balladeer

(the Florida gang is here and with them they brought their lovely smiles and I'm sure much fun...but, they certainly forgot the Florida heat!)

Wait a minute.  You are saying, Balladeer and Sy are both in the same room, and there's no heat?  

Wanna bet?

I'm with Sunshine. *S* If Balladeer and Sy are there and there's no heat, they sent imposters. *G*

This isn't as good as being there, but it sure is nice. *S* Ladies, you're as beautiful as your words. *S*

And Kit... that must have been some powerful pinch... it left me in tears. *S* What a beautiful diary of your trepidations and how they were set at ease. *S*

This entire thread is a treasure!

at the goings on out on the Cape.  
Keep those post cards coming!

looks like time well spent. . .

**Balladeer here sneaking on Nanner's computer**

These gals are too much! I though I had stamina but GEEZ! Off to Martha's Vineyard, off to walking around every street in town, off to the ferrys, off to gobbling pizza, off to a lobster-bake...no slowdown here!

They are a wonderful group of people. I would have been hard-pressed to have picked a nicer group to be around. They are all awesome and, Ron, it's hard to thank you enough for making all this possible. Without your vision and desire to create a place like this, we would all still be strangers moving around in own own small circles, oblivious to each other. Now we are together, oblivious to everything else! Your little creation here has enriched the lives of many, good sir.
   Now that I have sucked-up enough, I shall prepare myself to suck up on some delicious Maine lobster from the scheduled lobster-bake today (Kit may be small but she can out up quite a fight when ya try to wrestle food from her!)

    See ya soon!!

Dear Nan,

My spirit has danced with the dreams in your head
My head on your pillow is a guest in your bed
We frolicked in the mist of fantasy's play
And walked on the beach of ecstacy's day.

There could be no better time I could spend
Than the time I spent with the dreams of a friend.
Though our actual talk was tea with a lime
But I certainly had a very good time.

God bless you, my friend. We must meet much more
For my visit has treasured more common in store.

I felt that their small talk was nothing but rumors
That the ladies of Passions were after my bloomers!
A man of my stature deserves some respect
And, if I lost my undies, my name would be wrecked.

So I settled in bed for a nice peaceful sleep
Ever-vigilant ears not detecting a peep
Undies on, blanket-clad to offset evening chill
And, if anyone came, I was programmed to kill.

Around six I awoke with the coming of dawn
And, to my great surprise, my warm bloomers were gone!
Goosebumped legs were a-shiver and my toes were all froze
'Cause some cruel nogoodnick had stolen my clothes!!

Evil fiends! I'd been sleeping when they entered there
And, like thieves in the night, they took my underwear!
I was screaming out loud like a demon possessed
I accused every one but nobody confessed.

Room by room through the house I looked high and then low
I was thorough as Sherlock but they did not show.
All the while there was smiling and winking of eyes
And I just couldn't find them, to no one's surprise.

I walked out on the porch and I lit up a smoke.
When I looked at the flagpole, I started to choke!!
Flying high with the flags in the cold, morning air
Overlooking the water were my underwear!!



Ok, ladies, you win. You are smooth as can be
You were able to charm the pants right off of me!
Perhaps in the future, we'll again meet by chance
And, the next time we do, I'll hold on to my pants!!!!!

keep the postcards coming this is utterly wonderful

Has there ever been such a sight
As ‘Deer losing his drawers that night
He had them when he went to bed
Did someone bonk him on the head?
Were those shadows upon the wall?
Or Kit waiting for Hoot to call?
Was it Liz with soft catlike tread?
Who snuck up close to his bed?
Did Sharon aid Nan in this deed?
The appetite for underwear to feed
I like this game, it’s really fun
You Codettes are PIP’s number one

Love and warm stuff
As always
Mushy
