A wonderful tribute to such a person - honoring her many accomplishments. From the examples, I can see how clear, concise and real her poems were. Thanks so much for introducing me (a newbie to Fanstory) to this poet. Often people who pass on are remembered only a few days. This tribute should go on.

    I sure hope so. She was one for the ages. We often tried to get her to publish her works, but she was far too humble. *smile* Welcome to FS! If you have any questions, holler! Thanks for the lovely review.

I am so sad to read that my friend Brook has passed away. And we used to be good friends through Fanstory. She was even jolly through our comments on each other's poems. We always use to pick up a six, for every poem we both would read. I am so sad, now that I found out that Brook passed away. Loved her poems. Bless her soul. Terry xoxo

Great idea, Robyn, and I will certainly give some thought to adding a chapter or two. Brooke and I were often friendly rivals in the poetry site contests where she usually gained the advantage, but imagine my pleasure when I managed to beat her on occasion - she was the yardstick of excellence.

My memory tells me that Brooke almost unfailingly posted two poems a day. How on earth she managed to keep up with that, plus the huge amount of reviewing, plus replying to all those reviews, plus teach classes is quite beyond my understanding.

The statistics tell a compelling story, but it is the writing itself that shines the most powerful light on her talent - every piece a well-crafted gem.

    Thank you, Steve. I was thinking she posted pretty often, too. It may have been in the later years that she posted less frequently? I could go check, but I have other things to focus on and it really doesn't matter. She was a great one and will be missed. Big hugs--

Hi Robyn. Your tribute to Brooke is lovely. I like how you have combined your own writing with hers and spoken of her history here and how she was revered. Nicely done. Marilyn

Hi Robyn,

This is such a beautiful tribute to our sister who has transitioned to spirit.

I did not know Brooke, but I will surely read some of her work.

My heartfelt condolences to her daughter and family and to all who knew Brooke.

Thanks for sharing.

Jan

I remember Brooke. We are sad for ourselves because she made everyone better as a writer and to be a fan. That's how I recall, that she made any and everyone here feel special and important. She will be missed!

What a wonderful way to begin this book of tributes to Brooke. You gave such a thorough presentation of her many achievements on FS as well as including some of her poems. Her talent was easy to see. You also mention her numerous fans and her teaching, so that adds to our knowledge of this great lady. She will certainly be missed, and will always be a presence here. judi

This was a wonderful tribute to Brooke Baldwin, but I did get to read a couple of her pieces and most definitely she had a talent beyond remarkable. It was great Robyn that you took the time to write this, very well done.

Thank you for this post about her. I have not known about her before today... and will be going to visit her work to enjoy her talent. I am glad you included a few of her pieces here.
