My Circle of Friends by Autumn Eliza

I’ve this circle of ‘virtual’ friends
who now mean the world to me,
Sometimes I just pester them,
At other times just let them be!

When I see each name on the screen,
And view the messages they’ve sent,
Bowing my head I acknowledge
Their love and good intent.

I am so blessed to have these friends,
With them I’ve grown so close,
They just pamper and indulge me,
Even if I write a clumsy prose!

O my friends, what can I say,
You have become my life’s part,
please accept for your love and care
These grateful thanks from my heart!

  1. Now is the time to capture all this opportunity and you will never feel this alive again, Autumn Eliza, I know there is nothing more exciting than finding the support and appreciation of a creative community. There is a discipline, however, that will make the difference between becoming a Mozart or an Amadeus. The most important thing for a writer is to read. Keep a journal. Write about what you know. And learn the six points that must be met for a piece to be considered a poem. Revise, revise, revise. If you are happy with your first draft of a poem, you have done something wrong, and Hallmark cards are written by people you will never find in an anthology. A poet has a heightened sensitivity to life and let yours blossom; I am honored you are here but don’t say things to make anyone feel good; there is always something one can find that is positive; yet I love this poem of yours as it reveals your sweetness and light. Expose yourself to some of the human suffering found in the lives and works of Thomas Hardy; Matthew Arnold; T.S.Eliot so you can challenge your mind. Read everyone up here one night and make yourself comment honestly. To be in Cambridge; to stand at Shakespeare’s tomb; thank you for that! Enjoy every second and dream big! Fall in love and get your heart broken! I cannot wait to see if you are a poet!
