This surely is a hoot'n'blast
We've had our treasure hunt at last
Then hoot picked mussels by the pail
To complement our lobster tail

This gala party's not done yet
There's still one day, so we won't fret!!
Adventure waits this motley crew
There is no telling what we'll do...

NEXT!!!

I'm leaving Nani's nest today;
I have to say 'Good-bye'
I'm homeward bound; I cannot stay
But I will never cry.

I'll only chuckle every time
I look back on these days,
For they have brought me so much joy
In very many ways.

The poets who might never know
Were there within my heart.
Already bound by seedlings sown
Of friendship from the start.

We're kind of like old Army buddies
With a common bond,
Old neighbor friends from childhood
Of whom we're very fond.

It's kind of like we're siblings
With bonds that never break,
Someone to share your laughter
Every victory or mistake.

It's as though we're of kindred heart;
We climbed a common tree.
We sat around a supper table;
We shared a family.

We snuggled into bed together,
Watched our favorite show.
In childhood days of wonderment,
Together we would grow.

And in among each poet's heart
There runs a common thread,
Woven through each verse we wrote
And every verse we read.

It's a common sensitivity,
A soft observant eye,
That sees aesthetic renderings
In sea and earth and sky.

It's a common sense of feelings,
The emotions of the past,
That form a living shadow
As our silhouette is cast.

It's a common trust that we impart
On page of pastel blue,
That wraps each poem in golden bows
And offers them to you.

And so one day, in Nani's nest
I met you in the flesh,
Already spun silver threads
That wove a common mesh.

Each kiss is for each poem you wrote,
Each hug for love implied,
Each act of friendship from the heart
For every time I cried.

We shared a lot of laughter
In an old New England town,
This gathering of army pals
Will never let you down.

The time has come for me to go;
I leave with all of you,
A corner of this tender heart
To help to see you through.

And I have taken part of yours.
It's harbored in my chest.
So you'll be with me my dear friends,
In every dream or quest.

I'll see you later in your verse,
I'll recognize it's you;
For I have come to know your heart
On screen of friendship blue.
Thank you, Nancy - For opening your lovely home to us
Thank you, Sharon - For all your preparation in making our stay so pleasant.
Thank you, Ron - For your loving pages of blue.

I'm not as strong as you dear Liz,
For as you drove away ...
I felt my eyes go misty,
In the most sincerest way.

I feel that I was blessed,
For finally ... I got to meet,
My kindred heart, my twin of mind,
And now I feel complete.

I wrote this in the other thread Liz, but I wanted you to know that you are such a very special person to me. Watching you write these last few days, and being able to hear you recite your words, is a treasure I will hold with me always...

Best wishes and big hugs to you me twin,
/Kit

So there goes Hoot..she drives away
Hand waving as she goes..
Eleven hours to reach PA
Back to the world she knows.

Her kindness has enriched us all
She has a special mix
Of beauty in both word and deed...
Now we are down to six!

This thread will find a happy home in my library. It's the best family portrait I've ever seen. And to think, I almost didn't enlist in this Pipster army a year ago.....

Oh this is such a wonderful diary, I get to see You all, and my aren’t you all wonderful. This is such a fun read, I’ve laughed and chucked, and ohhhhh and ahhhhhh along with you all. YOU are a very special group, thank you for sharing your camaraderie and laughter with us all.

I’m stunned into silence with the pics I really wish I were there, but since I’m not I’ve enjoyed the trip vicariously and what a wonderful trip it’s been. Really excellent writing everyone. I love it  


Love and warm stuff
As always

Friday’s at Nan’s was simply just great,
As three more poets arrived at the gate.
Isabelle, Sy, and the “great Balladeer”
Sure enough were finally here.

Friday the gang was off on a ferry
To Martha’s Vineyard, oh it was merry.
I took the pictures, they wrote the poem
Of our meeting at Nan’s home.

    

    

That night we vegged from too much walking,
Or in my case, from too much talking?
We saw gingerbread houses and of course Gay head
But when we got home, brother we were all dead.

    

    
Saturday, I awoke with gills so green,
The greenest gills I think I’ve ever seen.
I arose to take part in a Cape Cod mystery search,
For a treasure chest hidden somewhere in the birch.

Nan and Kit poetically wrote each clue.
So off we scampered in parties of two.
The way they planned it, both teams won,
But watching Balladeer and Hoot wrestle was too much fun.

Inside for each scavenger was his or her little treasure,
It made catching the water balloon and freezing a pleasure!
A Passions mouse pad, journal, and goodies galore,
Tonight’s fire of laughter was now stoked for sure.

A clambake was planned, “Oh no”, said Kit,
“I won’t eat that lobster, it’s alive you twit!”
So she opted for chicken while others all dined
On mussels Hoot caught, with lobsters and wine.

While I to my bed, went perfectly green,
Soon awakened to see the best feast that I’ve seen.
“I think I will pass”, and I missed the live poetry reading,
Couldn’t listen to poetry while over a balcony heaving!

Sunday I awoke to hug Liz and say our goodbye,
How I’ll miss my friend, there was a tear in my eye.
Still kind of sick I went back to my bed,
Yup, 3,000 miles to play “sleepy head”!

All left for the lighthouse tour, and I opted to stay.
I wanted this darn bug to just go away.
When they came back I was in the land of the living,
So it’s thanks to God on this Sunday I’m giving.

I do believe our Kacy said it best...these are the best Family Photos we've seen in a long time...


You have all had such a wonderful time
each and every poet left a bit of rhyme

We too shared in the poetic feast
of long johns and "things" pointing due east...

it proves what Passions is all about
a place of caring, without a doubt!

Poets with hearts, compassion and cheer
Poets like Sy, Liz, Nan, and 'Deer

Poets like Mysteria, Ruth and Kit
Poets who've no problem sharing poetry wit!

I, too, now leave sweet Nancy's Nest
Now what's that all about?
I was getting settled in
And now she throws me out!!

Fell down, I guess, on catching worms
And gathering of twigs
Although I went out on a limb
Each time to smoke my cigs!

I thought I was a real good egg
But folks here think I'm cracked!
Goodbye, my friends, you haven't seen
The last of Michael Mack!!!

I had a handle on life...but it broke.

This is just one sweet memory of Cape Cod

By the Water

Is it you, my dear, who’s sitting there
Against the pearly mist
As Cape Cod breezes tease your hair
In cool and swirling whisps

Your face is lightly masked in veils
Of early morning haze
But still your beauty filters through
The dawn of April days

Someones eyes will touch upon you
And be raptures by your face
And the figure of your countenance,
A mirror of your grace

But for now you sit in silence
Poet pen within your hold
With the secrets of your hearrt
Upon the mist so clearly scrolled

Tender moments fondly written
On your paper dimly lit
Like a candle of your memory
Lighting verses as you sit

In the mist of Cape Cod's dawning
Is that you, my dearest Kit?

Oh Liz ... I truly love this, it's beautiful. Thank you so very much ... it's truly a treasure to me.

I'm home, and safely in the door,
And Sharon's on her way ...
We paid a porter at Toronto,
What a whirlwind day!

Sy, Isabel and Michael dropped us off at the airport, and we met again a second time before we walked through security. They still had a bit of a wait for their flight to leave ...

The last time I saw Sharon, she was safely running down to the Vancouver desk to catch her connecting flight, as I was off racing after the porter who helped us with our bags, and was showing me how to catch a shuttle to get to the next terminal. It was a good flight.  

Just wanted to let you know I was home safely ... now off to play with my puppy dog again. What a greeting!

Big hugs to all, and thank you again Nan, for an incredible visit. You are a marvelous hostess, and a wonderful friend ... (but darn ... I got teary-eyed way too many times yesterday and today).

Love and hugs to all,
/Kit

A vacation for all to remember!  Thank goodness you are all arriving home safely!  I expect each and every one of you to "check in" at the last Port of Call...Passions Door, to let us know you arrived as safely as Kit did!

My God, I can't believe I'm home!
Back in the sun at last..
The problem with the trip is that
It just went too darn fast!!!

Isabel got us lost again.
She really has a knack
Of taking us to places where
She can't find her way back!!

This morning I was talking to
Mysteria on the couch...
A warm, dynamic gal is she
Who never tends to grouch.

Sy was checking on the gas
To make sure we'd get back.
When we got lost I swear he almost
Had a heart attack!!

I watched Kit sip her morning tea
While laughing all the while.
In this world there's no nicer sight
Than Kit McCallum's smile.

Nancy, still the perfect host,
Was helping everyone
And writing directions in rhythmic verse
To have a little fun.

Hoot and Liz called to let us know
That they were safely home.
How special it was to see those two
Both working on a poem.

Ten hours ago that was the sight
And now I sit at home
Reminiscing in the night
Apparently alone...

But they are all here with me still
Their faces in my mind..
Sweet memories of all the fun
And friendships left behind.

Whene'er I see their words on screen
I see their faces, too.
I hear their voices as they speak
And thoughts come into view....

Of four days that enriched my life
In very special ways.
The memories of what we shared
Will last throughout my days...


Nan, you are the best!! Thank you for being such a beautiful hostess and doing a wonderful job to bring this small part of Passions together face to face, converting words on screen to flesh, blood and friendship....you're awesome!

They’ve all gone home and I can’t find a thing.
This Hoot’n’Nani’s done.
I’ve some things lost; but then I’ve some things found.
No matter – We had fun…

Mysteria taught me to shop the ‘power shopper’s way.’
And left me here with ‘stuff’ galore – I sure enjoyed her stay.
Ruth came and really gave a hoot for each and every one.
She says she is nocturnal, but I’m sure she brought the sun.
Kit left with me a pinch a day, here-too her brand new Bud,
Elizabeth inspired me with her poetic flood…
Deer’s generosity’s unmet – shared snuffles with the brood,
And Isabel, the wondrous cook, gave me leftover food.
Sy left my pillow with his scent – I’ll never change the case..
With Passions call here on Cape Cod we’ve now met face to face…
