Appreciation

She let the door bang when she entered these pages
so all would know she was here.
She signed her pen name as Poet Destroyer.
We soon came to call her P.D.

She wanders these pages making kind comments,
runs contests that are easy and fun.
She judges and praises the winners, 
and does it all over again.


P.D. has won our hearts
and we love her.
She comes in the night 
leaving notes like mom used to do.
When she gets to know us 
she signs her real name
Linda suits her much better 
than Destroyer.

Written 5/10/ 13
For contest  “Appreciation” (for p.d.)

    Hello Joyce, this is a very lovely poem of appreciation. It is an honor. And yes, I love signing my real name to all those I enjoy,... maybe one day I will even add my first name. Linda's my middle name. I adore the name. PD, here is for fun. Once again Joyce, thank you for the lovely poem, I don't favorite all poems dedicated to me, only a few. But, this one is a must. I like the way you mentioned my sign off. xox~ LINDA
