    Hey Destee, :wave:
    I was thinking, there is so much
    talent in the members of this forum
    that I think you should consider
    bringing these works together for a
    book or something of that nature.
    These poems cover a wide range of
    different emotions and feelings.Often I am
    left speechless and I think that others
    would be too.I just would like to see
    these poems become more available
    to the public.We got much talent here.
    Think about it.

    ~ haaaaay Nita ~ :wave:

    Great idea! I'd be glad to help in any way I can.

    It would really be up to each individual poet and what agreement could be made between those involved.

    You are certainly right, there is much talent in this place! Many of the poets are in the process of writing their own books, and some are already published.

    I got a poem I wanna put in there ...
    on page one ... hehehe

    :lol:
