Very cool! Now you can retire early as the wheelbarrows of money come pooring in.

Then again, poetry has value beyond money...

The words take to paper,
slipping into quiet folds,
urging the looks in
to look out;
each page turned
stills us with its becoming

Hands clapping.
Foot tapping.
Riotous applause,
Gives one pause.
Rejoicing Smiles,
Seen from miles and miles...

Ok that was cheesy.
Happy Christmas.

The beautiful thing is, you are not only a poet, but you lure others into the beauty of it, too. Your influence moves others in the poetry direction. And now with this book, how many others...?

Oh yes!

I do recall the first time I read one of Laura's posts and she mentioned her "poetry teacher" and a little thing called RAP. You all snuggled me right in and gave me courage and inspiration and freedom to write.

Your heart, opened and turned out for the masses, is indeed a heavenly scented gift that will bless time and again.
