    I pat YOU on the back, Brian. I agree. There are no bad poems. And, we can all learn from each other's work.

                  Thanks for your encouraging comment GEL ! There are always two facets to a POEM ~ structure and subject and the two should be in harmony. RHYME or not to RHYME is a big debate bit I agree it should flow and be unforced ! Sometimes (with the help of ones muse !) it hapens ! Hugs ~ BRIAN

                  We definately need more encouragement in the world today, and we all need a place where we can feel appreciated and respected. There are no bad poets; the differences only serve to broaden our reach as we all reach for the stars at the end of the day. Here's to all poets and everyone who needs a bit of encouragement! Nice work Brian xx
