BECAUSE OF JUST ONE POETESS

BECAUSE OF JUST ONE POETESS I let go of living in sadness. My life seemed going nowhere, and looking back now, it all seemed like madness! It wasn't because she did gymnastics with boorish poetic forms. Nor was she cute or wordy. using only the shortest forms. I was in search for something far deeper that healed me with human warmth and a soul balm. Best of all, through her, I was to learn to waltz happily with shadows of my past! And to know that love seems to end, but I found contrarily it, in another form, always lasts. BECAUSE OF JUST ONE POETESS I kept coming back to read her at the Soup. And, finally,after a number of months, I concluded to sign up and express myself with my freshman, weak pen. I used to write the saddest poetry, before I came here. I try now to stay away from poets who hate my country, or get joy out of living in lost love or sadness. And to avoid all who laugh at and demean myself! Belittling others in a poem, creates and furthers world madness. BECAUSE OF JUST ONE POETESS Indeed my days have transformed  from gloom to splendiferous gladness. No hopelessness nor grief can fingerprint my life any longer. And in the days to come, may my words become far stronger. BECAUSE OF JUST ONE POETESS! **Her name is known best to the  the humblest of the twinkling  stars and God's ears** With affection and thanks~

Again, Pratab, you brought me back to who I am. She is a fantastic person and Poetess that moved me by her words, not what form it was. She literally breathes in her poetry. Not all poems can do this. Led by form and not by soul. Thank you for a second reminder of who I am. I die writing poetry to please others. I am a sell out at that point. My soul tells me as much.. Panagiota. Merci!

TS~ greetings. I do agree! Yet, no matter how great I think she is, she radiates extraordinary humility. . A lesson for me, if I even dream of being arrogant. I have seen this quality in top people in any field. I find humility a mark of leadership. I love your nic, TS! Love, Panagiota xxx .

Good Afternoon from California. PS, the power of our words is signicant indeed. The poetess I read was magical. I don't recall her even mentioning poetry but her body of work is significant. PS, ~It's such an honor for me to receive your Congratualtions! She was and is herself! That's not only encouraging, that is a gift in my book. Genuine people set me on fire~ and a reminder for me to do same. "To thine own self be true", indeed. I am eternally grateful for her works. Love, Panagiota

My friend , you yourself are a top poet because you write from the heart, exposing your soul and with the thought to give to others. Giving to others is the bedrock of poetry. To me GIVING TO OTHERS IN POETRY IS THE STANDARD that sets top poets from novices and others. Great poetry is this gem. A fav..

Robert, greetings. It's now 6:30pm in Ca and daughter and grandson just left.i so liked your comment... GIVING TO OTHERS IS THE STANDARD. that says it all. ee Cummings greatly influenced me. His reminders of who we are. Commenting is the sign of a GIVER, that would be you and I won't Comnent to those who never do. Why would I? Love, Panagiotaxx

Panagiota, my dearest friend - I also know of a poetess who has taught me that straight forwardness is the way forward in life. Her poems are written at any time of the day or night and are mellow, warm, loving and faithful - we share someone very important who only she and I know who it is and I love her for this. Your are a special POETESS. Hugs and blessings, Jennifer.

Anne- Lise! I am not in the contest. I have never met her in real life. Her poetry just blew me away. I thought you needed a name to enter the contest and will not do that trip. In real life, most of my friends passed on. So without meeting or seeing her? It's more than miraculous the impact she has had on me. You and I would never be commenting had I never read her poetry *****Panagiota xxxxx

I am touched by your comment, Regina, 5 stars for commenting. You are so very special! I know her through her Poetry only. She is my inspiration...goes without saying. Her poetry is magical for me. Much as are the poems of ee Cummings or Walt Whitman!
