I will miss you

Blog Posted:3/13/2020 3:47:00 PM

I think I missed some drama.  Even though I'm not here very much, I do check in now and then. I wish I could write again, but...  well, life happens and it's too much to handle sometimes, let alone write about it.  Anyway, I want to say that even though I'm not here much and I don't write much, I still love coming here and reading my favorite poets sometimes.  I will really miss Tom, and Teppo Gren, and anyone else who has left or will be leaving!  A big empty space is left here whenever someone leaves. You don't realize it but YOU make up the soup, and we need every one of you.  Wouldn't the world be a really dull place if we were all the same and we all had the same opinions and thoughts?   Well that's the same here in this wonderful poetry community.  We're a family.  I'm a long lost cousin right now, or maybe a prodigal daughter, but I need to know that my family will be here when I'm ready to return.  Uncle Craig, and Uncle Harry, and all my cousins and nephews and neices lol     Anyway, I love you guys and I do hope those of you going through a rough time will just take a break but come back soon.  If you want to "talk" don't hesitate to write to me.  I love you all.  Please stay safe, from the the coronavirus and the flu and all the things going on in our world.  And don't despair, there's a better day coming.

My Dearest friend, do you remember this? Bold as thunder sounds: Oh gentle maiden shed no tear for I have sent a gentle rain to wash away your fears... Wear misty droplets as thy gown and dance beneath the stars let lightning ribbons lace your hair be as bold as the thunder sounds... Inspired by Just Becca's poem "Missing Thunder." © 2 years ago, Robert Anthony Maguire

Becca, I am always glad when you check in, and was happy to see this blog today. You were one of the many "friendlies" when I first started in 2016. I needed to take some time off, but came back recently after sorting my priorities out. Thanks for posting, we love you too here at Soup, and hope that there's more poetry in your future - when times are right ~ John

I am placing my comment on this Blog. I know it will be appreciated here and understood. (Plus, my words are being twisted on this other Blog and I don't appreciate that at all) To all those that have left this place, I hope you are where you have always wanted to be. To all those leaving, may you find your happiness somewhere else. If you haven't already. I don't know the history of what has happened here, but I know the present. I know my path. I know that when I needed a friend, others came to support me. (Thank you) I know that things aren't always handled here, in the right way. Just recently, it was handled correctly. By TPS. By those around me. My best to everyone. ~ Brandy

sorry I didn't see this sooner, Brandy. You are right, you can post on my blogs anytime, I support you. I really don't know what has been going on lately, but it seems like there are some very unhappy people here, and they take it out on others.

I also noticed when I was on that blog of Teppo's that we are just not getting through. They are very set in their ways. Each to their own

Brandy, there are a few pinheads around but not one of them worthy enough to tie your shoelaces. If this was the pub I'd take 'em out to the carpark to discuss the matter but my powers of persuasion on the net are less effective.

Please do Becca - so often trials in life create those who are much stronger then ourselves because they have learned to overcome much more than the petty insecurities of simply growing up. What we take for granted, they celebrate - we can learn so much from them.

Dear Becca, it is so good hearing from you. I understand this feeling. Poetic friends are like family. I will miss T.J and of course Tommy. My Sonnet "Shadows" is inspired by T.J. He challenged me to create a Sonnet and I did. :) I am on a Sonnet Roll I think. Right now. Also. I will say this. "Never judge a book by its cover" Read the pages inside. That being said. I have gotten to know Tommy. He is a good person and he has a wonderful heart. My best to you and your family. Becca. ~ Brandy

Not so much drama as overreaction and a little settling of old scores it seems. The Soup is not immune to the personavirus. Nice to see you out and about.

I like your uplifting blog, Becca. I will always remember your kindness one time in standing up for me when someone tried to shame me. I believe it was you. It's so long ago now. Anyway, I do know you are a very kind soul!

Thank you, Andrea. Yes I remember some pretty heated "discussions" we've had with others! lol There really are some mean people in the world but we just need to stick together and support one another. Miss you, lady! I'm gonna visit your page for a while. I'm here with my parents while my dad recovers from a surgery, so I have a little free time! :)
