HANG TEN, POETS

Don't think like an ant for a tunnel to hide. Imagine yourself a surfer. Hanging ten! With a beautiful surfboard and a wave to ride. The sun casting a golden god color to your skin, That fresh ocean water baptizing your face. Ants can't ever do what you can. So, stop being a Poet who writes the least you can. Be a poet who can truly inspire.... The Family of Man. February 9, 2020 7:30pm PST

Hello Arturo...we have power as poets to tell the truth .....I think that's glorious. Truth is sacrificed too much. So glad you commented...Panagiota xx

Beautiful, wonderful and very inspiring new creation! I agree, a poet should be busy giving this world his/her verses. Sad truth is I'd love to be able to write as much as I once did-but a busy life now gets in the way- and health issues lessen my output as well. God bless you and yours... A fav, a gem..

Robert, if they have time, they should write. Many of us here have challenges never written about in poetry. The ones CHEAP in comments bug me the most. Some arrogant ones here who can't "hold a quill" to you in both lifestyle and excellence, prefer to judge a poem to death. A comment would kill them, these are the ones with degrees. Given this is a social site, this breed sets themselves up as professors. They are not published as are you. You have a plethora of Poems from the past, I am sure. You must take care of yourself, above all. Your love of people and poetry is a shining beacon.Panagiota xx

Hello, Jenish! I cannot write if my brain is out of it.)) I just do not want to Wite meaningless stuff. Hope that makes sense in a race to have a poem. There are extraordinary, humble writers here. Far better than I. Still learning! Thank you Panagiota xx
