I long for the Poetry Threads. I long for the nice people who used to join the threads. I miss seeing good poems with five to ten comments on them, not to mention the rating boards with three to five members who cared to vote. I miss writing thoughtful comments to works of newbies and long-time members, lately I just have been reading and printing and reading in waiting stations and buses.

I long for members who used to show-up here everyday. No, it’s not anymore the same place that I’ve found before. Unless someone will assure me it still is.

Smithy once told me: ‘I think writers are a bit like tigers. Sometimes they like to go off in new directions on their own. Other times they enter into new relationships and time for writing is limited.’ Such a sad, sad statement. This idea haunts me till up to now. Why, I would also like to fall in love and be away from Lit.Org for months (or a year?) LOL.

This doesn’t mean that I don’t appreciate the ones who I still find here. In fact, I am very grateful for them. Thank you guys for constantly sharing your works. I may not be commenting on most of them but I still read. E-V-E-R-Y-D-A-Y! Till maybe I can fall in love with someone too and be gone for a while… :)

My all-time favorite Poetry Thread entry by MzJen1:

If I could fall in love
I would do it, right here
Follow Tina's advice and come undone
With huge, heartfelt, laughterous tears

If I had all the cash
To do with what I pleased
I'd buy the very island
Of Claire's "Exposed!" seas

If I had enough blankets for Dareva's 'Forgotten'
I would give them each a barrier from cold
They could have their choice between silk, and cotton
And it would be their own, to bury, to barter, or simply to hold

If I had the materials necessary to create
A stained-glass sculpture the whole world would see
There are three I would love to see collaborate
William, Peter, and Penelope

If there was ever a way to describe this space
Where I have found comfort and tears
I recommend reading Huni's poem, "This Place"
She says it all, and to all who love LIT, I say "CHEERS!"

crystal face I kiss
tongue tastes like sweet cold rain
I fall into pond

Never fear Peter!
You WILL find that certain someone...and soon, I predict. You have too much to offer to be without a love...there is someone special out there just waiting to meet you, and I just hope they deserve you!

As for Lit...we all have different opinions and like the elections, we have regrouped and will all come together again. Nothing ever just that some of us forgot to follow the guidelines. This is a place to air our TALENTS...not our grievances...that's why we have the forums! And like most families, we have agreed to disagree. I suspect we will emerge from our corners where we have licked our wounds, and come together as before! Besides, families always come together again for the holidays. Looking forward to sharing them with you all. (I'm preparing the lasagna already...don't forget the wine!)

Oh! Peter ....
I have tears as I read your piece. Like you I have popped in to read from time to time. This ol' place seems to have settled back to the Lit I first loved and maybe when some things I am up to at the moment are settled I will have time to write again. I miss it terribly. Are you well Peter? Find and keep in touch with your inner happiness and I am sure some loving person will be attracted to that and will come to love the person we all know and care for. warmest to you Peter, huni.

I Long For You
That is what I simply mean with this, that I long for all of us to be together once again and build another POETRY THREAD! Such activity is binding and creates something that we all could treasure.

TINALOUISE, "I hope that there will be no more papers that shall fly like crazy white doves," (is this the sound of my voice that you miss? I am quite aware of that and particularly here in my quoted sentence :) I am very happy to hear that you will soon be returning. Have you already checked my Acrostic on you (check poetry threads)? :) My sweet friend, Namaste

CLAIRE, you very well know that I will always support all your poetry threads. I could almost hear your shouts for parts even when I was off the computer, a Gamesmaster whose enthusiasm never falters always spurring everyone to write. I think I had the time enough to watch you in your ups and downs (during the downs, still you managed very well). And please, if you have one more new song tell me so, the first two I already memorized! LOL :)

MA BEA, yes! The Holidays! There's a reason for a season... I wouldn't want to miss being here with you all at Christmas time. I wouldn't want to miss your baked lasagna, oh, a bit of description in your poetry will do, Ma... a CyberLasagna will be good enough... LOL! I shall be going down the cellar now to check if the wines are alright, what would you like to have Ma? :)

HUNI, GOODNESS! This is enough that I know you are OKAY! Damn, I have already been asking around about you. Worried that you maybe sick, I still remember you mentioned you had bronchitis. I hope you are healthy now and fine. Wait, check-out the acrostic poetry thread, I wrote something for you over there. And please email me... :)
