Hi Robyn,

What a beautiful tribute you've penned for Brooke. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. And indeed, she wouldn't want you or any of us to cry or morn. But she would appreciate us remembering her, and reading her poetry.

Well. done, my friend.

Ray

This was a very nice tribute to adewpearl. I hope her family reads them. It's cool you were able to get a real picture of her and her grandson. Your poem rhymed, made sense, and invokes emotions within the reader.

I just read Sandra's poem and realize that Brooke has passed. Everyone loved her and with good reason.

This is a fabulous poetic tribute to her. Your emphasis is on the positive - that she contributed so much to the lives of other people. Well done.

This is beautiful Robyn. She will be kept alive by her poems and
the memories we hold in our hearts.
I like the positive tone of your poem as you celebrate her.
Thanks for sharing.

I remember that picture!
Cheers, Robyn;
>Thanks for you, from me for expressing my heart's inner feelings the way I do, when I think of Brooke's So offerings and blessing she laid upon us and me through her magnificent writing and bequeathing us Dandelions and what they really are.
>When she taught you filter in your living room and when you read her work it was like reading to her, her own thoughts.
> When she touched your heart and soul she gave it back better than when she took it and that's what made her very special, very special indeed.
>Thank you Robyn.

How very beautiful, Robyn. It's not always easy to act calmly when somebody we care about passes away, but I guess this is the right attitude.
Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for starting this book, dear Robyn. I agree, she would want us to celebrate, not mourn. She'd love your rhymes...great flow and musicality! I bet she loves your internal rhyme, as I do!

The whimsy is wonderful, especially in this stanza:

No shouts to skies with screams of why;
no puffy face and swollen eye.
The sun will rise and give off heat.
My world won't stop, I'll have to eat.

Brooke's kindness and poetry will live on in Fanstorian history and hearts.

Loved this one! Bravo.

Warmly, rd

When my friend died of cancer years ago I told myself the same thing as tears kept rolling down my cheeks. I forgot that I said that about her. Maybe we're crying because we're so thankful we did know her. We're so thankful that she came into our lives and it's such a blessing, even if it wasn't as long as we would have liked. Great job friend

This picture I have not seen .i have read all the poems she has written since my joining this site.She is amazing in that she can take the most insignificant thing in nature and write a poem about it and mange to build in a universal truth.
your poem is the best I have read so far.I was away .so only now i came to know of this.

That is a beautiful poem for a beautiful lady. I loved Brooke. She was kind, decent and knowledgeable without being a show-off about it. She reviewed with care and consideration, and is much-missed. Well done, and good of you to start a book
