A poem of thanks and gratitude for the positive and encouraging support we receive from one another. A special thanks to Silent One and Daniel Turner for setting the example of what a special place we have in the "Soup".

I have a new far away friend I wish could live just round the bend who's poems I find so pleasant and kind there aren't enough flowers to send With the pen of a poet you write as a message of hope in our plight with beauty and grace a gently left trace to challenge a deeper insight I imagine the way you would look see you happiest writing a book poetic rhymes of places and times and all of life's lessons you took Our souls have been fed by a fire and we share in a common desire to have a true friend for the ride to the end of our goals as they raise ever higher Though all I can see is your name I still hear your voice just the same it speaks to me dearly and calls to me clearly through poetry destined for fame I'm blessed for my far away friend who will never live just round the bend for I see a smile with poetic style in each posted poem you send In the world of the mountains you climb thank you for taking the time to lift up my soul with renewed sense of whole from your words that so cleverly rhyme Thank you my friends. -Jeannie Minor

Thank you, Franklin. For myself as well as many others, I'm sure your numbers will count more than a few.

It is I who should be thanking you dear Jeannie. With the support and encouragement you offer and for seeing the deeper meaning than just some rhyming words. You are a candle of hope in a distant window and I appreciate your heartfelt kindness. You are entirely too modest. You write beautifully. Peace my dear:) ( Ps. ) My ADHD won't let me sit still long enough to write a book, My mind tends to drift in the breeze. LOL

Well, if that's the case, my friend, I pray I will always be downwind and breathe in every beautiful thought you are willing to put out into the universe.
