Another moving tribute to one who had an incredible impact on the FanStory community. Unfortunately I joined too late to have the pleasure of 'meeting' her but I can still enjoy her offerings.

Thank you Ray for this genuinely beautiful tribute to Brooke. She was an amazing poet. So pure and good at channeling our inner child.
At Christmastide I think of loved ones lost
throughout the year. I shed some tears. I smile.
Adewpearl always topped my poet's Christmas tree,
and there she yet remains as I read her verse tonight.
I loved this
God bless

Hello Ray,
A wonderful tribute and addition to the book for Brooke's family.
I did not know her as long as many on the site,
but you've touched on much of what made her unique:
love of nature, connections, simplicity, beauty of form and person.
Beautiful verse
Alas, I've no sixes left
Robert

-Thank you for sharing your
tribute for Brooke, Ray.
-She would be so pleased that you did.
-I like how you use the seasons as the
theme of your poem and relate them to her.
-The imagery is beautiful and heartfelt.
-Most special for me are:
"Adewpearl always topped
my poet's Christmas tree"
and the last two lines.
-I have been saying to a number
of people sharing that I think she
is looking down and smiling at
all of the poems, writing, and
reviews from each of us who
knew her and cared deeply about her.
-You are missed on FS, and I hope you
can share your talent whenever you can.
-I don't know if you are reading
what others are writing, but I
am putting my tribute in on Sun.
-I hope you can stop by.

So good to see your name in my inbox, Ray. I hope you are travelling well, enjoying life and that the occasional Grey Goose flies your way.
Splendid blank verse tribute. She was an inspirational lady and, as you so rightly say, "Brooke's legacy extends beyond her years".

Hello Ray, a heartfelt poem and beautiful tribute to Brooke, a woman who shared her knowledge and talent unselfishly. Brooke was always upbeat and positive. She always saw the good, the best, in everyone. Ray, I think your poem says it all, especially:

Just as spring's fresh breath gives rise to daffodils
and dandelions adorning verdant lawns,
I'll think of Brooke and all the wondrous things
of which she'd write this special time of year.

(As the daffodils and dandelions begin to bloom, I know that Brooke will be looking down from the heavens in high admiration.)

Keep the blue waters flowing. I hope you're doing well. LateBloomer

Ray,

This poem is just lovely - taking us through the year with our favorite poet. *smile* Things certainly won't be the same knowing she will never be back, but I'm so glad we have her portfolio to return to again and again. Thanks for these lovely thoughts. I appreciate you!

A very well-written tribute to a wonderful poet and friend who was always there to uplift and show others the brighter side of life when things are getting dark and scary. Truly a legend.

Oh Ray, how beautiful, and Brooke's wish fulfilled -- "her poetry endures" and she will be remembered. She 'topped my poet's tree' too, and I've missed her since she left, always hopeful she would return. It's a sadness that only reading Miranda's Facebook postings allay...
