This is simply the most adorable poem ever! What a creative way to toast the merging of a poet with their imagination! What would we do without our faithful muses! Obviously, yours wanted to marry you and put all other poets aside! Well done Muse!! Haha xoxo

    Thank you dear Diana,so pleased you enjoyed, was kind of
    experiment my muse took off on its own...LO....have heard
    that spouses of some writers, poets feel they are more married
    to their muse than them...LO...and get away with more too!
    Blessings for the generous extra star too dear. Love, Ronni

    Sorry for such late reply: Delay due to trip to CA. my one and only
    sister, having to have a 2nd critical heart surgery. Outcome good, further prognosis optimistic with rehab already started. Glad
    finally over, bit jet lag wear, but so glad to be home again.





reply by Diana L Crawford on 16-Mar-2020
    I?m sorry to hear about your sister and honored you would share. You never have to worry about replying. I?m just happy to hear all went well and you are back home safe especially now at this difficult time of travel. Be safe and take good care of yourself. xoxo

Oh, this one must have a 6! It is a work of genius--cleverly and delightfully composed, vividly descriptive, and poetically inventive. I love the artwork.

Aaaaah, so that would explain the need for 'time out alone' that I need once in a while and the attitude I get from them (yes, we have a menage or more over here - scandalous, I know, but so juicy when it comes to the wedding gossip, don't you think?!) when I'm looking for one mood and they just keeping come up with everything but! :) :) LOL! Absolutely adore your take on this one, Ronni -- especially the bubbly spirits... although there is one of them gets a bit risque when I imbibe sometimes so we have to keep an eye on him... ;) :) Thanx so much, my lady -- ours is a rocky marriage over here! :) Yvette

    Hello dear Yvette,
    You aced this so perfectly dear, and your own thoughts and
    reflections are spot on too! So pleased you enjoyed, this was
    an experiment my muse kind of took on its own...and who in
    their right mind dare quarrel with their muse, right?
    Love, Ronni
    Sorry for such long overdue reply: Delay due to a required trip
    to CA. my one and only sister, needing to have a 2nd critical heart
    surgery. Outcome good, prognosis promising, on course with
    extended rehab. So glad ordeal is finally over, a bit jet lad weary,
    but so glad to be back home! And finding another ladder...LOL...
    Take care dear, keep smiling and everybody guessing what gem
    you will come up with next...:) ;)

"Poetic Vows"
"As if a wedding of Eternal Bliss?"
"Two pens marriage sealed with an ink of Kiss?"
"Amen written all over each and every guests face!"
"White paper all to honor with Grace?"
...
This was well written and rich in Theme and Imagery.
It read well and flowed well with no Grammar Issues.
...
Complete Synopsis;
The Adjective and Objective Contents were both Excellent and Exceptional while Descriptive Measures aligned Perfectly!

...
"After we were done taking in the sacrament and right before our current President Penrod."
"Would be teaching Sunday school."
I handed it to him and I watched...
"And, watched done more...
"Until he started to read...
"And, share it with President Richard Erring the Sunday School President in East Brunswick Stake Church...
"And, After a 45-minute discussion by my friend Cary Penrod"
"He came over to me and said to me...
"You are my muse."
...
"That would not be the first time I would entertain this man."
...
"Throughout the specter of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, I became well recognized as their poet of Laureate for my religious poetry."
...
"A Missionary President."
(Female and Spanish)
"From Pleasantville, New Jersey asked me if I would be so willing to entertain the following Sunday in the month of February."
"I said no for I dad a full plate of grief I was dealing with."
(The loss of my only son Jason and then followed eight months later with my only wife Carolyn)
?????
...
"How many years would pass!"
"And, again but now feeling much better."
"She asked if I would like to be part of the very first Latter-Day Saint Church of Jesus Christ talent competition in East Brunswick New Jersey."
"And, of course where my muse buddy and my friend, President Stokes teaches."
"And, I replied I would be so honored."
...
"Since it was going to be for the month of February, I decided to write a beautiful poem called "Valentine Hearts."
Note: "This was before I was asked to compete!"
...
"The day of the Competition finally came and I was very excited and ready to roll as President Stokes came up to me and asked me if I was prepared?"
And, I replied.
'I will go first if you like?'
He then said...
'There's only two professionals here.'
'Yourself brother Smrkovsky and the Guggenheim from Philadelphia to entertain."
...
Note: "This major event,
two years in the making, a talent competition, of clustered...
"That meant it was seven churches in South Jersey."
"Along with all,
"The Latter-Day Saint Churches with Priests and family attending this event.'

Note: "Not just here in South Jersey, nor in North Jersey."
"Not even in every State in the United States!"
"But in each and every country."
"In the entire World where the Latter-day Saint Church of Jesus Christ exists!"

With that said...
"And, five events later."
"It was time for the Guggenheim to entertain."
"But the man and his female well-dressed assistant was not ready?"
...
"Again, President Stokes came up to me and this time he said...
'Brother Smrkovsky.'
'The Guggenheim is not ready to go sixth.'
'Can you go now instead of seventh?'
"And, I said to him...
(As I did before)
'Yes, and you will get only Excellent and Exceptional."

...
"Dressed in a white starter shirt with a pink tie wrapped around my neck."
Black dress trousers and shoes."
"And, on open Mic."
"I went up and presented to over 200 people." Valentine Hearts."
Note: "We were allowed five minutes."

    Hello Joan
    Thank you for the great visualizing appreciations and compliments.
    This was an experiment my muse kind of took over on its own...
    claiming 'first rights' as it often does...LOL... Glad you enjoyed,
    and thanks too for the generous extra star. Hugs, Ronni
    Sorry for such belated reply: Delay due to a needed trip to Ca.,
    my one and only sister I have, needed 2nd critical heart surgery.
    Outcome good, prognosis optimistic, with extended rehab.
    Relieved her crisis is over, am bit jet lag weary, but ever so
    glad to be back home again. There really is no better place
    than home! Hope all well your way, and are staying safe too.
    Especially with this new dangerous virus; be careful.

reply by Joan E. on 16-Mar-2020
    I am glad you are back home safe and sound and your sister's prognosis is good. Thank you for your good wishes and for sharing your delightful experiment. More cheers- Joan

    Love, Ronni

    gets away with it! LOL.. Love Ronni

Glad I was around for this marriage ceremony. All the words were perfectly blended together to form one perfect union between two couples so happily that were so much in love. Great job Ronni. My only question is where is the reception held at?

Of course I have no cause to believe in a muse, but I guess one can call whatever stirs one to write, any name they wish. And mine has become very strong as I've progressed, it also opened my mind exponentially to the imagination's unlimited potential, and everything is bound only by one's faith. Then having two dimensions to work in, doubles the possibilities, I left school when I was 14, bound by my working class parents thinking, But God had other ideas. Well done Ronni. Blessings Roy
