I may not always succeed in making a difference, but I will go to my grave knowing I at least tried.

Well if its quality Marty thank you, I can live with it - was starting to think maybe it was quantity v quality but confess to being pretty happy with all bar a handfull of quite trite ones here. Scary thing is this doesn't take into account any of my free verse ones :o

WHAT SPARE TIME HEATHER ??????


I think you have a very active mind Maureen and I do not know if you do performance poetry but I think you would do really well.


Have a go you never know. I'm sure Madfred could get you a few starts.

Mad Fred might be too deranged to ask, perhaps Mannie would know :lol: :lol:

I know it looks like this must take up a lot of time but it actually doesn't only because I can write the darn stuff as fast as I can type it - no kidding - doubt I would ever spend more than 30 minutes on a piece initially, might go back and fine tune it a few times but basically that is it. Sometimes it seems to take on a life of it's own. :?

Holy Mackeral Maureen!!!!! Where do you get your inspiration and your time from???????
My list is probably going to look smaller than Zondraes - I posted quite a bit on the old forum, and on Ric's forum, but haven't done very much on this one.

G'day Maureen,

You deserve a medal woman! And I don't mean one of those silly hand made/ craft style 'OBE's.
I am going to invent a special title just for you... but I'll have to think on it a while.

Oh don't lose any sleep over it Heather and Zondrae thank you - but it is an embarrassingly long list and would be even worse if added another 6 months work onto it so I am not going there. What does it matter - I write because I can. That's reward enough on its own There are so many things I can't do that I enjoy doing something I can. :lol: :lol:
