There are so many wonderful writers that visit this site each day. Some have been here for years and others maybe once or twice at best. This is my tribute to all of the Bards of PS. Most do not have a lot of time to spend commenting or reponding in kind but love the site as much as myself and relish that time. This is to all site members and visitors, old and new...
The Bards of Solitude
~ With sleep evaded by the rabble running through my head,
I pull my wrinkled sheets about and scuttle out of bed,
then sign upon a secret line to enter in the Soup
and once again, now wide awake, I’m back among the group.
I find a bunch of early birds or night owls if you please
that paint with words electric, then cast them to the breeze.
They hang their souls like fresh washed clothes upon the wired line
with hopes their message strikes a chord or plays upon the mind.
They write for one another or they write to speak their peace
and challenges are always made to help each one achieve.
They often fight like cats and dogs as family members do
because another didn’t see their brilliant point of view.
But all in all, throughout the world, they come here every day.
I wish I had the time to read what each one had to say.
They gather to express in thought their world within a word
and fellow writers will assure that no one goes unheard.
In wonder I indulge the words they cast into the air...
inspired by the metaphors and similes they share.
For here the Bards of Solitude can share their cyber-mind
with those that understand this place and wish to share in kind.
