"A man is known by the silence he keeps." Oliver Herford
It looks like I will not be able to return to PoetrySoup.
I have learned so much from the great poets at the Soup. I have read some of the best poetry I have ever read right here. I know that the poets here love to write and it shows in their poems. This really is a special place.
I love the diversity of poets. Whether you are strict about form or shoot from the hip the important thing is you write from the heart. Form, spelling, grammar all that can be learned, writing from the heart that is a gift, not something that can be taught. I have a huge favorite list of over 20 pages. I don't believe there is a poet I have read that has not made my list at some point.
I have about 100 poems I have not posted. Maybe my best work. So I have reason to make it back here. I would like to return to share - to read - to comment I just wanted you all to know I may not be able to make it back here. Prayer and love will get me through my hard times. I am using laser focus at the present.
I have included a few poems, I hope you enjoy them. May your God always be with you.
