I’ve finally hit the big time I’m going to be on the stage Reading one of my poems I’m sure to be all the rage I enquired about my dressing room Would it have a gold star on the door With champagne and flowers to greet me (I’ve read about diva’s before) You can imagine my disappointment When I was shown to the ladies loo Not enough room to swing a cat And it stinks of wee and pooh! On 20th May I will be performing one of my funny poems at a local charity event to raise awareness and money for Parkinson’s disease – this poem came about after chatting with one of the organisers 05~05~16

Wow ... what greats news, Jan! I'm happy for you :) I'm not sure how I'd feel about reading one of my poems aloud as I've never done it before ... Hope you have a wonderful time and receive some laughs from the crowd!!

Thanks Timothy - my confidence is growing as I went to an 'open mike'night recently and did 4 'spots' with about 9 poems performed. On 20th I will be reading this one and Just desserts which is a very special poem as its the first one I posted here and the first poem I had published in a book:-) hugs Jan xx

Well, good for you Jan, I hope this is the big win; time for you, but anyway, I wanted to take the time to read your lines; also rhymes because I am a fan of writing rhymes in my poems; so, it caught my eyes, and so, I wanted to let you know your poem is nice, I like it. And thanks for commenting on my poem too. Good Luck on the 20th. Abiygayil b.k.a. Rhymin' Pearl

I will have fun Janice - it is an evening of comedy sketches and poetry and I feel very much at home with the other people in the group:-) hugs jan xx

This is awesome - no one writes me into a grin the way you do. Any chance you can read this one to the crowd as well? While you are thanking the organizers for the invite, perhaps? I cannot help but wonder which 'funny' you will read. I am very proud of you, Jan - you make a difference, a positive one ... CayCay

I'm reading my Just Desserts poem CayCay. I also went to an open mike session last Sunday and did 4 spots - they loved my humour too. I will see if they have time in the schedule for this one - but I can always use it another day - am sure now I am in this new group I will thrive as they have creative writing sessions every 2 weeks - shame I will miss a few as I'm working:-( hugs Jan xx

I will Lin have fun:-) I had a chat with one of the organisers on the phone today and I made a joke about 'dressing rooms with a star on the door' - 5 minutes later a poem was born - I have to say the toilets at the venue are immaculate but I needed a little poetic licence lol:-) hugs Jan xx

Leave them rolling on the floor Jan! :-) Unable to stand, catch their breaths or stop this action! :-) :-) The very best to you and instead of "breaking a leg" as is said in show business....break a lot of faces into uncontrolled laughter! :-)
