Let it be opportunity to be. Aptly expresses how we can feel at times. Keep the creative pen flowing. Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my work. You probably would have to have a picture sent for you to believe it but there are rose buds on my runnning rose after 20 degree temperatures of course they look a little nipped but they are there. The Star Magnolia has huge buds and the willow tree has the beginings of buds.Sara

Either that or one can put the time to good writing use. It's amazing, though, how lonliness can get in the way. Much said in just three lines. Thank you for sharing your perspective with us and for stopping by to comment on my poem. Karen

Don't! Hey, no problem with being alone. Solitude when properly channeled is good for the soul, the best time to get really creative. All great work of art were done alone, in solitude, when the outside world is blocked out. Happy XMAS, Phyllis. Regards, Fred (Thanks for the comment, Phyl. Actually I still visit Soup quite regularly, I just lost the creativity to write and nothing's coming out from this useless brain, that's all. Which explains why all I could do is re-post!!!)
