Thank You

i don’t know how
i don’t why
we bonded over words
over rhythms and rhymes
over lines and verses
across the seas
beyond the borders

i send my love
my admiration
my appreciation
for all that you are
and all that we share
across the seas
beyond the borders

i thank you all
for all the love
for all the support
for all the gentle nudge
the push, the encouragement
across the seas
beyond the borders

and with a heart full of gratitude
i thank you all, over and over
over a million times, over a million
rhythms and rhymes, over lines and verses
across the seas beyond the borders

β€œWe learned about gratitude and humility – that so many people had a hand in our success” – Michelle Obama

WordPress has been and will forever be my “Poetry Home”. I started blogging here in 2013 with just basically a handful of followers and likers. Blogging for me then was simply my outlet for my creative mind. My blog was my virtual self.

I learned over time that when you are true to yourself and when you encourage love and positivity your “circle”, your “community” will grow. And I did grow. I learned from the best WP poets and writers and bloggers.

And it was my WP friends who encouraged me to write and publish my first book. Now, with five poetry books published and 2 Amazon bestsellers, I am and forever grateful to my WP family.

Kate asked us to write a Paean (a song of praise or triumph) https://aroused.blog/2021/09/22/paean/

This Paean is dedicated to my WP family.

        lol I had thought WP was a voluntary organisation, the reason I overlooked many of their flaws/gremlins until Val corrected me and told me what an excessively wealthy business it was πŸ™‚
