Sasha,

I have to think Brooke was right and that you did NOT fail her class - not only because I have been reading you long enough to know how stubborn you are... *smile* ... but also because I know how good a teacher she was. *smile*

This is an awesome tribute. I know she would be soooo pleased. Thank you - I enjoyed reading it, too.

    To say I loved her as both a poet and a friend is an understatement.

    I'm sorry for your personal loss, dear one.

Awe, Sasha, this is such a lovely tribute to Brooke who has become close to a legend on this site. Very well written and coming from the heart. Warm regards. Ulla:)))

Great. Now I'm crying again too. I stopped by your page because I wanted to be sure you were okay -- I know you had a special relationship with Brooke, and I know how hard you are on yourself. Lo and behold, not only are you okay, you've written a WONDERFUL tribute, Sasha. I'm not even going to dock a star for your use of "that" again. (LOL) "...she was a dear friend (who)..."

You get my last six this week, my friend. God bless. (And believe Brooke -- if she said you didn't fail her class, you didn't. xxoo)

Love,
Dawn

    It wouldn't be by me if I didn't have at least one 'that' in muy post... LOL Thanks for pointing it out and for the lovely 6 stars. They mean so much to me.

reply by Ideasaregems-Dawn on 16-Mar-2019
    LOL. Well, you have a lot of company; that I will give you. HAHAHAHA!

reply by Ideasaregems-Dawn on 16-Mar-2019
    Oh, and you're welcome -- those stars were well-earned, my friend. It's a beautiful thing, your piece.

that is who she was and you caught what she did for most of us. I remember the help and the patience she showed me as I grew into a real poet, with her in my cheering section.

What a beautiful tribute to a special woman. I never had the joy of knowing her, but I will pray for her dear soul and for peace for all of you who did know her.

    It isd unfortunate that you never read her awesome poetry. She was a genius and tried to teach me but as I said, I was a completely failure.

    You too hard on yourself. I myself have a wretched time with forms - I just can't stay with them. Blessings

She is reading this and smiling down upon you and all of us. She was a light to many and is missed by all. It was hard because as you said she left so abruptly but she remained on the site through other poets and writers that have learned from her. Big hugs. Today is certainly a hard day for many

    I was hoping her poems would be saved like those of others that are no longer with us.

OMG I had no idea she was gone. :-( Oh, I am so sad. I think this is a fitting and well written tribute to her and I'm sure she enjoyed reading it over your shoulder as you wrote.
I found no errors. Such a sad reality of this fragile life we live. Makes me even more determined to remember that life is right NOW, this very moment we are living is life. Don't waste it.
Jan

    Yes, she was here one day and gone the next. It was hard because no one knew what had happened. That was about a year ago and now she is gone. So sad and unexpected.

In the fanstory community Brooke was on poet's street and it was paved with Gold because so many of her poems have a touch of dandelions in them. She indeed had been missed for several years and she will still be missed by all who read and reviewed her works. I pray that her grandson Sawyer is doing well and that he will carry with him many good memories of his grandmother.

    She let me use one of her dandelion poems for my book Celebrate the Dandelions. She was such a generous person and I felt honored that she allowed me to do that.
