Thank you so much for the kind word you have written on several of my writes because they truly mean a lot to me. I have not written much for the last several months as my mind no longer functions as it once did mostly I believe due to medications which I think that my muse must also be on.

Donald, I liked your poem. Very creative and full of humor. I'll buy your left over funny words! You might like my poem "Playing with Words" :)

How rewarding it is to hear that you have read almost all that I have posted! I've only been here such a short time and you honor me in this way! Thank you. I joined for the specific reason to share my poetry with others. That makes me happy. Someone invited me to join a contest. I don't remember who. But I am not professional poet. I don't know most of the types, except rhymes and free verse. I just write what I feel. I wouldn't stand a chance against other poets who know what they are doing.

This is the plight of the poet who can't find a poem. It has happened to me. Thank you for your comments on The Basement Room. Linda
