My Poetic Side



Writing has given me challenges,

That help keep me mentally in shape.

Mypoeticside has given me shelter,

A place where my soul can escape.


I come here when I thirst for expression,

Some words bring laughter and others bring tears,

To be surrounded by all those who know me,

Is a little like going to "Cheers".


So a tribute to all of you poets,

Whose writings sustain me each day;

Keep writing the words that inspire me,

And I'll keep tucking them away.


For each brings so much to the table,

With every poem that you all share.

I can walk with you on every journey,

And never get out of my chair.

          This is very nice. Thank you. You are so right about the way we feel embraced by others when we can expose our feelings and have others comforting us.

            Something nice about being surrounded by those of kindred spirit.

              Oohh but I dunno! Any of the even remotely 'hot' poems on here, bring on a swoon for me, in my sheltered life. It's dangerous for me on 'ere sometimes ya know. heehee.

                Some get a little rich for those delicate at heart. πŸ˜€

                Thank you for a great poem and such a nice and appropriate description of our family of pen wielding partners in crime!

                  Hard to go wrong with a family of supporters. It just makes us better. πŸ˜€

                    As they say, birds of a feather. Our feathers have quills attached.

                      we learn from each other and support each other, seems like a win/win.

                    • myself and me

                      Thank you and agree with you. My soul feel at home here. Express my feeling here and talking with all the unknown yet close friends here is the best time everyday.

                      • lasergraph

                        It just feels like home here. Reading through the works of everyone here is as comfortable as apple pie at your kitchen table. Pretty hard to beat.

                        Well there Mr Lasergraph i think every one of us has at some stage paid homage to this wonderful site and our fellow poets but i must say i dont think i have ever seen a better written homage than yours sir. I salute you Mr Poet... and i share your sentiments about this place 100%.

                            It is indeed like a family. Just hoping I am not that uncle that embarrasses everyone.
