Postings on one thru twelve pages
some written by sages,
do not count me in that category.

Enough has been said,
some even have bled.
I'll now escape and sign OFF
this thread.

I know how vulnerable you feel, and I understand that discussions such as this can definitely scare newbies away from attempting to write or join the bush poetry circle. When I first stepped into the poetry world, I found everyone very friendly and welcoming. I have seen a decline in this welcomingness, which is very unfortunate. I just wish everyone could "play nice" like they did years ago. :cry:
