    ...this will be my last post for awhile...i thought
    it fitting to bid "adeu" (to posting poems) with
    this prose i penned in the wee am today...
    i'll been reading you, poets--so keep writing!!

    ==========================================================

    the pen...
    my pen...
    metallic...
    silver or gold
    even plastic...
    is the voice of release
    when i cannot speak phrases
    that get lodged somewhere
    between hemispheres
    in~cranium...

    not exciting nerves
    which would cause my
    lips to part
    and my tongue to move
    in response to vibration from
    my vocal cords...

    verbal thoughts run
    untamed, it seems
    like wild horses
    that have yet to be broken
    ...so are my words
    unspoken

    what would i do
    without
    my pen...

    To a poet, the pen is life and you have summed up the ink that flows from the life line. Go, if you must...because poetry is a journey. When you return, and return you must...the pen will speak of your mental travels and of the things is this life that have moved you to write.

    Peace my sista'
    Reading you has always been an education in rhythm and rhyme

    MsDLite,

    Thank you so very much for sharing your spirit and flow here, it has meant the world to me. Having your presence and poetry gracing this place has brought many smiles to my heart. Please know that. Lord willing, we will be right here whenever you wish to share yourself again.

    I do invite you to promote the Sistah Cirlce with us, in the "Book Talk" forum. Let everyone know about the site. It's all about helping us to promote our sites. If there is anything I can do, you know all you have to do is ask.

    You will be missed.

    Much Much Love Gurlie and God Bless.

    Destee
