Adewpearl Brooke
Perfectly set within its rhymed flowing versification structural Shakespearean sonnet format and beautifully narrated with the same gentle touch of our dear lost Adewpearl's personal sweetness and delicate storylined content enclosed in every single out coming spreading poetical seed of the poetess just blowing her dandelions and what amazing couplet has been your homage. It's 5.00. a.m. and my eyes are full of tears... Thank you!

    Thank you so very much for the wonderful 6 stars, Alchera, and your heartfelt review. I will always miss Brooke, she taught me so much. I attended her classes on here, and she was such a kind and patient teacher. Her poetry was just beautiful, and in the last years of her time here, she wrote all those lovely poems for her grandson, Sawyer. Thank you, Alchera, it was nice talking about her again. Super big hugs, Sandra x

reply by Alchera on 06-Feb-2020
    I have known Brooke through her criticism to my poems which were perfectly review and sometimes with suggestions that I have always accepted. I have loved her sweetness and kindness but about all her politeness and way of helping me. She will always be in our heart as you just said, Sandra. I hope that this will be the starting point of a sincere friendship. Blessing from Italy. Tony

reply by the author on 07-Feb-2020
    It most definitely will be the start of our friendship, Tony. You have given me my first smile of the day. (I've been up 10 minutes!!) :)) xx

    I apologize for my delay but looking after my six lively noisy grandchildren from and creativity took all my time out during these busy short days of February. I hope you are happily enjoying your freetime with your beloved ones ,too. Maybe not so noisy as mine. I spent some time t in your beautiful quite seaport town during my touring as a group leader with my pupils before retiring in 2015 after forty-two years and eight months. Now I am trying to get through my first poor prose writing while I think I am on my first step of poetry which I like best. As a reviewer I do love to give a deep analysis of poetical texts if I really like them otherwise I skip them. I rarely examine prose because I don't feel ready yet. Blessings from Italy.Tony

Dandelions In Heaven
Looking through the poems I found Brooke. What a delight! As obviously many others, I loved her very much. Twice I joined one of her classes.
Althogh my mother tongue is not English, she treated me the same as all the other students and even encouraged me to publish one of my poems for children. I learnt a lot from her.
Thank you for writing this ode for her.

For Brooke
I see you posted this in March, but for some reason (perhaps my own busyness) I didn't see it until today. It is a perfect blank verse, and so beautifully descriptive of Brooke's work. You managed to incorporate all her favorite things, from dandelions to fairies, reminding us all of how much we miss her... how she will never be forgotten by those who knew her. Thanks so much for sharing this. I miss you, too, favorite Teach.

    Thanks so much, dear friend. I'm so pleased you enjoyed this poem for Brooke. How tragic was her loss, but fortunately we still have her poetry to enjoy. I hope you are well and not affected by all of these power outages occurring in the northern part of the state.

reply by MissMerri on 11-Oct-2019
    Yes, we had our power out for a couple of days and nights, even though we did not have a breath of wind in our neighborhood. Since we have a well, we were also without water, which was worse than no lights. But in the bigger scheme of things, it is pretty insignificant.

For Brooke
I've just returned to FS and it's sad to learn that Brooke is no longer with us in physical form although her spirit will endure in those of us who knew and admired her and loved her work. May she rest in peace.


Beautiful poem of tribute Ray. Enjoyable although bittersweet to read.

    HI Julia,

    How wonderful to see your review in my inbox! I hope you are doing well.

    Thank you for your very kind review. Brooke was special to so many of us. I still miss her poetic voice.

    I've not been active on the site for over a year or so and came back in to write the poem for Brooke.

    Stay well, my friend.
    -Ray

reply by juliaSjames on 14-Aug-2019
    Hello Ray, it's great to hear from you. Hope you are happy and healthy, and still writing. Life has had its ups and downs but I'm grateful for each moment. Happy that a few stalwarts are still onsite, Warren Rodgers, Rd, MissMerri et al. And that a great friend, Pearlecat, returned just after I did.

    Take care, my friend

    Blessings Julia

Adewpearl Brooke
I always hoped that Brooke would be able to return to FanStory. Thank you for your touching tribute in this rhymed sonnet. I admired your use of personification and the "star" metaphor, plus your reference to her favorite dandelions. May she rest with the angels- Joan

You Go, Girl!
Thank you for your thoughtful tribute to Brooke and associating her with the angels. I relished the thought of her continuing to "coach and inspire for all of her heavenly days". Well done- Joan

Dandelions In Heaven
I don't believe Brooke (adewpearl) passed. I didn't take any classes with her, but she critiqued my work every so often. She was nice woman in her own ways, and an exceptional writer too. adewpearl will be missed my many. May she rest in peace.

Lovely poem to honor her memory.
