A Thank-you Verse to Each of You...

I don’t know who you are, but thank-you
From time’s precious moment-fray
You choose to use a few minutes
To visit this porch each day

Not for quaff of tea and cookies
Not for handshake’s cheering grip
But for bonds of ink-twirled passion
…for sweet poem-fellowship

Not duty-bound by strict order
You drop by, again, again
Simply to share the meek measure
Of a homespun poet’s pen

...or camera:)
 Either way,

I most certainly would set out tea and cookies if I could pass them from here to there!

I got a bag of peak-freans that my 'littles' informed me are "yuck"....
so what to do?
I'm hoping I can pass them off on a Christmas-cookie plate!
(The miracle of white-chocolate drizzle and Christmas-colored sprinkles:)


  1. Thank YOU, Janet. Every time you take a short break from posting (I believe just once a year, when you're on a family vacation) we miss your porch, your poet's pen and camera so much :)

    1. Sasha, your kind words are humbling indeed. thank-you from the bottom of my heart for your unwavering encouragement!

    2. p.s. ...because it really is not always easy, but it is something I am committed to!

  2. The cookie transformation is amazing!!! A miracle indeed :)

  3. Thank you, Janet, for your words and rhymes, for your thoughtful comments and staying in touch. Merry Christmas to you and yours.


Thank you for your visit to this porch. Any thoughts you would like to share?
