Moon Dust - Wow will do just fine. Thank you.

Dark Angel - thank you so much for the stunning and the vote.  

Janet Marie - did you say something?  I am not sure I heard you quite right.  In any case, would it really matter what anyone said to a moth if they had already made up their mind to do something?  Thank you sweet one ... ya know I love ya and your mothy ways.  

Nan - Thank you dearly and I am glad you like my choice for the book.  I also am honored to even have a chance to be with such fine poets and friends.  That I believe is the most special part of all this.

Mark this is a wonderful piece of writing for the new book, and of course the book would not have been complete without your words in it.  This is some of your finest work and is a beautiful representation of your abilities for all to enjoy in the book.
You have my vote, but then you already knew that didn't you.  
Good to see your words again my friend, and hope that we see more when your time allows.
The door is always waiting open to welcome you back to these blue pages.  Hugs.

Hello Mark

This was simply stunning and most definitely deserves to go into the book.  Here is a little something for you.

"A poet weaves his words
through each verse to create
a most beautiful tapestry
for us all to admire."

Take care......Sue

I am in motion
I am blue
Love is an ocean
I'm anchored in you

Looks like everything's already been said!

This is a verse to end all verses,
and I do love the fascination in your words.

Rested between lips of quiver dividing horizon's hue
Breath of hibiscus song nestled in whispering spoon
Blossoms to silken caress where fantasies are strewn

Well baby..the moth is smiling BIG TIME right now...

Let me be the first to congratulate you on your poem making it in!!!  

Now that the little book icon is closed...
that means the moth can do her poetic worship properly


I--of course...will be back...
but then you knew that, right?

Allure ... resting in the alacrity of mesmerized breeze
Captured early moments in pillowed desires to please
Cherished futures ride the wings of erupting dreams
Clouding spheres of fortune in yawn of dawn beams

Lyrics of innocence dance in velvet curtains of sleep
Sheltering emerald reflections of love passages keep
Cradled embrace tossed in throes of tangled thought
Stretch to the warming rise of imaginations caught

Yearn of learn sparkles in first kiss of morning dew
Rested between lips of quiver dividing horizon's hue
Breath of hibiscus song nestled in whispering spoon
Blossoms to silken caress where fantasies are strewn

Birth of silence lingers between the walls of delight
Grasping at freckled constellations lost in the night
Flickering aromas blaze the winds of untried time
Whirlpooled in resistance to noon's spiraling climb

Beckonings of promise swelter in passionate musk
Taunting dismissed shadows from yesterdays dusk

===================================


Ya make it real hard to pick fave lines and verses in this one... so many lovely poetic images and personification...and that has always been your poetry's crowning glory...
as is your rhyme and cadence...I so love the ethereal essence of your poetry...the way you encompass natures beauty with heart on sleeve emotions and wrap them in rhyme as smooth and soothing as the tide at Chesapeake Your poetry is classic romantic rhymes at their best..but with your own signature gift of beautiful images that create an atmosphere of serenity and peace.
I swear I can hear and smell, touch and taste the things you describe...and ya know how I love that LOL


Yearn of learn sparkles in first kiss of morning dew
Rested between lips of quiver dividing horizon's hue
Breath of hibiscus song nestled in whispering spoon
Blossoms to silken caress where fantasies are strewn



that verse alone proves me mothy point for me...how stunning is that?
Me thinks its a groovy to the Aquarian degree


Now...whats a moth gotta do to get ya to submit another one???
You know Im never poetically satisfied  LOL

Congrats my beach buddy.
thanks for endulging me...and for all that you are in my mothy life.

Mark is traveling for his job for the next few days, and Im not sure he will have access to a comp, so for now I will say thanks to all of you for welcoming him back so generously and making him part of this book and I am sure when he gets back he will say it much more eloquently than I

Mark,
     as usual, something from your pen that is very worthy of praise. I printed it out at college and read it over and over at lunch time.
    Beautiful, my dear friend.

Chanson-Thank you much and it is good to be back though the time is still limited.  

Joyce- Inspiration is the key to all things in life just as I believe life itself is an art-form in it's own.  Thank you dearly.

Donna- You never fail to bring a smile to my face with your tender words of praise and I thank you for that and for you being you always.  It is always a comfort to know that a person in welcome and I thank you for that as well.

WhiteRose-If you enjoyed the read then I am happy.  Thank you.

OLIAS-It is so wonderful to see names such as yours still here and I thank you much for your wonderful words.  The fact that you consider it a keeper is an honor to me.

Suetang-Thank you much for the gift of words you left me and your comments.  I appreciate them much.

BluesSerenade-And I do love it when someone lets me know which verses or lines they enjoy most as it helps me grow.  I thank you for that and for you kindness towards my work.

JM- You already know how much it means to me to hear your thoughts on my works and it is of course a great comfort to have one such as yourself in my corner to make my head swell a bit ( as if I needed it) lol.  Thank you my bestest and most loved friend of friends.  You truely shine in all you do and you know you bring life to me no matter what path I am on simply by giving your support whether quietly or not so quietly.  A treasure I will always cherish is the gift I found when we met in here and I hope you realize that by now.  Also thank you for keeping everyone up to date on my lack of attendence here.  I love ya a thousand times over sweetie.  

Dee- Ahhhhhhhh ... my dear sweet one from the land of Oz.  You gotta know it brought a smile to my face to see your name here.  Yes, I knew you knew.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart and the fact that you would print it and read it over and over makes the writing worth it.  You are the perfect example of why we write.  Now, not to be a pest and all ... but WHERE IS THE VERSE??????   

SEA-Thank you and I am sorry for my absence but it is nice to have such a wonderful welcome back from everyone and to be included in a book of those whom I consider among the greatest people there are to be associated with.

WoW!  I wanted in to read some of your writing as you had written such a nice response to 'The Cowboy and The Madam'  I am in awe of your writing and feel honored that you took the time to respond to mine. I looked in on your profile and says Native American interests. I have a Native American piece, in fact two one in Reflections called 40 Summers and one in Corner Pub called Missing Son, I would be interested in knowing if they had ring of authenticity to them as I  actually know 'diddly squat' about the subject matter, although I am totally enthralled by the old time cowboy and Indian concept. Anyway, so many thanks, I read several of your pieces and as I said I am so very impressed and in awe. I would have voted on this one for sure - brilliant.
