I'll repost this piece I wrote back in 2004:

Recipe for Creativity

Start with one part Berlie
for inception and inspiration,
sautee until brown on both sides.

Stir in a tablespoon each of
Jeannerene, Lil Gray,
Moonflower, and Burdick for full-bodied
flavor and richness.

Top this with a heaping helping
of Bags123 and Leysa
for that earthy texture.
Bring to a boil and simmer
for what seems like an eternity.

Spice it up with dashes of
The Quiet Poet and Candy_Cane,
and for the adventurous add a pinch
of Zero and BrightMindDarkHeart.

Don't forget the conscience.
Without Tom Watson
and HisBarbieDoll
the recipe cannot be complete.

Fold in a generous portion
of the colloquial wisdom
expressed by Negatvone,
and the sometimes perverse humor of
Thief of Dreams and Ven.

For the most poignant expressions
of melancholy and pain,
add a cup of Debab and a pinch of Ellie.
Stir gently so as not to further
bruise their tender hearts.

Blend in some Gillian for insight
and a really big portion of Jade
for the youthful energy
we all wish we still had.

Cover the brew with a layer of dough
and bake until thoroughly done.
Call the recipe PoetryPages.com,
enjoy, 'cause it's number one!

And to all those not individually named
ingredients of this marvelous stew,
without each and every one of you
adding your own unique flavor to the pot,
the mulligan would not be as savory.

Funny, no mention of a certain someone here... Huh, I guess there's nothing that can rhyme with Saturn. I'll forgive you this time, Pops But I expect full access to the special liquor cabinet twenty four seven. :hello:

I think that back when I wrote that piece you weren't too active yet and were still a bit more "private". You've grown a lot since then and have become an invaluable resource at the Pages, which is why I made you an admin. Also I'm an old fart and don't keep track of stuff very well... lol.

:hello: :hearts:

Oh my ... I'm a 10 year member almost ... July 3th 2002 :grin: I'm a very bad member though :crying:
I remember the first poem I posted here ... :mrgreen:

I remember your poem Heinz .... so cool reading it again ...

Here's a couple I wrote about members way back then...

Gillian's Poems

Compositions kindle.
Her words gesture,
come hither, set fire my heart.
Flames touch me.

Perceptions flower.
Inhale her portrait,
buds caress diminished bloom.
Follow the scent of compassion.

Melodies murmur.
Voices offer song,
sound a celebration of love,
each time desire hears her name.

Imaginations dine.
Delicacies penned sweet,
spiced with time’s sorrow.
Taste of tears left on the tongue.

Collection admired.
Poetic decanters . . . goblets,
catching Gillian’s hues and brilliance,
bedazzling our hopeful sight.

******************

~ Ravyn's Impression~


For one brief moment
The Ravyn perched upon my shoulder,
And paused with me in a shadow
That lay across both our paths,
Looking at the view
Behind us and to that which lay ahead.
Just a single footfall of my time
To be released to the wind,
And remembered for the gentle
Brush of her feathers against my tears.

*******************************

:hugs:
... and his words purge up and outward,
expelled and onward through desert dust swallowed,
sands he says that gorge on simple sensibilities.
And, now he spits fragments, grit, extended vowels and elongated syllables
over cracked lips. Their sounds fall
piling round his boots…

Ah, I see the Toe Gnomes have done their job. All though I sent some after Jim and I haven't seen them since. :shock:

Please may I have the chocolate cupboard key?

Thank you jeannerené for your poem, and Heinz for stirring me into the mix.

Congratulations to all those celebrating their tenth anniversary. I've been away too long.
