Suffice to say I know you are all out there, as my inbox for email is overflowing with your works, but time is tight of late...working takes precedence...sorry!

To my friends at AuthorsDen…


Seems a lot of late,

I have had to fish or cut bait,

Working my fingers to the bone,

Not able to stay long,

At my “no place like home”…


Busy though I may have been,

Each day I get time to be seen,

Trying to keep writing still,

Wishing I had the time to drink from the still…


If I have been too busy to leave a comment,

I apologize and really do to you repent,

I doubt with my new route I will be able to change,

But just realize and understand,

That as soon as I am able, I will read all of you,

Including those that are downright strange,

Yes Kostro, that means you…

i always feel bad because i start out leaving some kind of comment on each poem that i read and then as the day goes on and the list gets longer, i slack. i always read, i just don't comment on every poem the way i do earlier in the day. i'm just glad you are here, ed

I can totally relate to this, Ed as I too work long hours. I am up at 4am to go to work and sometimes don't get out until 6 or 7pm. With that kind of schedule, my chores around the house to attend to and trying to spend a little time with friends, I find it difficult to even have the time to write, much less read all the wonderful poems that are placed here. I don't write often, but when I do, if I don't see a comment from you I will understand completely.
Take care,

God bless,
