Sir Rich - thanks for the poetic knod!!! peace unto you. Royal_T, 1poet, Lovely - thanks for the read. look forward to checkin ya'll. been off the site with some other venues - thanks again. Oh LovelyGoldenOne - I'm in Montgomery Alabama - Hollar!!! SwtT - my Sista. I feel you. A poet should only write from the wellspring of their own soul. experieces will guide your pen. and pen to pad you will speak of your own realities. that's true poetry. so i applaude you for just...... being you - a poet, living in her own existence, speaking to her times. your voice will change with your experiences - as has mine. but only in God's time! so just flow - and watch - but nerve deny the world .... YOU!!!
