I like your castles
and your coffee;
sometimes your poems
make me cry.
I’m always glad to see,
another memory
Your children’s art work
lives inside my eyes
your amazing poetry
lives inside of me!

You’re good with words,
great lists & categories.
Your photos, paintings,
videos come alive
I read your quotes,
your recipes
and scary stories;
thanks to you, I’ve made lures
and organic dirt to fertilize

I have felt so close to you
your grief your fear
your honesty…
I nod my head and say yes yes yes,
I’ve been there too.
I know we’ll never meet
because you live so far away,
but you showed me another life,
and better things to do.
I so admire your travelogues,
your funny blogs,
your way of making rice,
your photographs of mountaintops
new home-remedies for lice.

I never thought I’d make a friend
in Jerusalem!
Who knew I’d be exchanging thoughts on
Death & Life..,
with people in India, South Africa,
Seattle Washington,
or hearing a song I’d forgotten long ago,
that truly made my night .

I love your Likes and Comments
on my poems
They inspire, make me smile,
and Go “Weeeeeee”
Here on WordPress is
my own little family nest
I love Following you..
thank you for Following me!

I know what you mean it is like an extended family or for some a good deal of their family. Such a kind thing to write. Sending you lots of love and thoughts of your kind heart. Love you, Joni
