Poet's words lurk in the soul, sit--legs crossed--like stubborn children...they pout--unsaid, ticked-off. Then out they fall, splat! Words have no manners.
...Nordette Adams

returning like the sun king
to his wandering winter queen
you came and soothed my fractured soul
with gifts I'd not redeemed
until you stoked the fires
of love lost to time's sea
and rekindled my desires
to be the woman that is me.

"The Boy Who Saved My Sanity"

Your words always "paint a vivid picture!" You keep us on the edge of our muse-ical seats--eagerly waiting and wanting more! There
ain't no tellin' what is going to come out of that "truly whimsical mind" of yours! All I can say is...LOVIN' IT!!!

"Everybody Needs Somebody Sometime"; if only to find themselves and continue with life. Nordette, you are a Beautiful Butterfly and your world is filled with many wondeful flowers. Fly and visit each one, leaving each of us a little of the wonder that is you. Your gifts are for all the world to taste. You're a shining star, bringing light to all who look up to see. You are very special and shall always be loved. Keep writing, my little "writing junkie", for the thoughts of your mind are meant to be shared. This poem; "A Butterfly In Winter", is beautifly written and exudes your lovely heart and beautiful mind. Your Forever Friend
