I would like to challenge all my fellow poets to write something about our family here at the Den.


Take a look around you
Then stop and look again
Can you see the precious treasure,
In what we call Authors Den?

Look around you at the people
And then look at the words
Can you see the many feelings,
That’s been written, read, and heard?

I can sometimes see within the hearts
Of those who hold the pen
If I tried to mention everyone
This poem would never end.

Peggy writes her poems of love
Sandy makes me laugh
Some write about the world’s events
Some of their better half

Eileen’s writes take us to the stars
La Belle steams up the screen
And Dani has a way with words
Like I have never seen

Each and every author here
Hold up your head in pride
For without your words this couldn’t be
This Den where we reside

A million words been written
There will be a million more
And every written word
Makes this place better than before

Thank you so much for this suggestion!

Beautiful poem. My family is my inspiration. I write about someone in my family everyday. It is wonderful to see how they've grown in my eyes as I look over the pieces. Great challenge!

Wow! Thanks for the mention--hope to keep you smiling or laughing aloud :)!
We're already getting things together (washing Doogie's favorite stuffed animal as Pooch always goes with him into surgery); the stuffed brown dog was a gift to Doogie when he was two--from my only brother, Mike--yet Sherry--Doogie's mom--allowed the rats to gnaw on the poor thing. I restuffed and repaired him long ago but Doogie sees him as 'imperfect' and thus, loves him to pieces.
So~although I love your and usually rise to challenges, it may be a while :)! We leave on Sunday (early) and have to be at Casey Eye Institute in Portland at 6:30 am for Doogie's pre-op exam/preps.
Adore you, Jack, and all the others I've met at AD.

Excellent idea and even better poem about it. You picked the cream of the feminine crop. Which means that us women need to give special attention to our favorite men.
