This work has reached the exceptional level
I actually really loved this. Loved how you inserted bumblebee. And I love how you created a strong final beat on the rhymes. To me it too matters how we look at life. Some only see the accidents, the fault in our stars. But I loved how you found the right words based on the lens you shared with us.

    Thank you bunches, Stan. This is a part of death I hate - that everything just keeps going, you know?

    But Brooke left us so much to treasure and I?m thankful for that AND the blessing of her friendship.

Soo perfect a tribute in Adewpearl Brooke's style. Maybe we can strive to follow her example to write better but even more to love as she loved, whole heartedly at full throttle.
That's what I take from Brooke's life
God bless and hugs Robyn

No, celebrate her life -- and thank God we knew her. I agree. This is wonderful, Robyn. Miranda is posting so many beautiful photographs on Facebook too, and I wish it was possible to share some of them. I love the one accompanying this beautiful poem.

This is such an uplifting poem for the family to treasure. Focusing on the legacy of joy is so much more powerful than wallowing in the misery of a life lost. You've set the bar high for other contributors.

    I went to her facebook page, with Miranda's permission, and grabbed two or three. I planned to sprinkle them INSIDE the first chapter of the book along with those poems. BUT since we can't use photobucket anymore, I haven't found another website that works to hold the photos to link from. So -- I still had about three pix I didn't use. --sigh--

    Thank you for your kind comments. Big hugs--

Yes anytime the world looses someone like her it is robbed of a special talent that will never be again but will be missed by so many. Very nicely done

I love the arrangement of the words, honoring someone who is dear to you. For me, this is new and creative. Even though your writing has always been good, you find new ways to good beyond the previous work. I always enjoy what you write.

Phillip

    Aaaawww? Thank you, Phillip!

    Because I'm learning what I don't know, I appreciate the talent of a select few writers here on the site which makes it difficult for me to fuse any creative efforts these days. I appreciate the thoughtfulness a certain writer. It increases my desire to read their works. Yours is one of them. I know the praise makes it hard to respond, but you worked hard and long for more than what I can give.

    I know it?s hard to believe right now, based on my current behavior?haha? but I?m a big BIG believer in the concept of writers WRITING.

    I believe you should write every day whether you feel like it or not, whether you have and idea or something to say or not. At least-bar minimum-1000 words.

    The only way to improve is to write. And write. And write.


reply by pbomar1115 on 16-Mar-2019
    I truly believe you, Robyn. I became a better writer as a result of your encouragement. Truly, I did. One piece I wrote very early during this writing journey was praised by you. I've been chasing
    that same praise. It will never come because I used a writer's work as a template and wrote my story. Receiving praise for someone else's labor is not OK for me. I did not expect an honest-to-God help until my connection with you. I'm presently reading material that would make me feel I have something worth posting when and if I absorb the content. You are my lifeline, Robyn.

I too thank the Lord I knew Brooke. She was unique, a true master of the art. I always told her to find a publisher. Hopefully, Miranda will do that some day.

    I hope so, too. I always talked to Brooke about that and she was never interested. When I came back in 2015, we had a phone chat and she said she was finally ready and we made a plan. I just remembered this is a public place... we'll talk later. The point is the project is on pause for now. Thank you for reading! Hugs-
