Kindred Spirits  

Fellow writers, many faces,
filling up the distance spaces.

Bridging gaps that are between
with lines both fine and polished clean.

Tying over land and sea,
building up our own community.

Kindred spirits here and there,
words flowing on the gentle air.

Bringing grins and laughs and play
to fill up hearts along the way.

Or causing tears and minds to think
as from a bitter cup we drink.

Painting, painting endlessly
with words so dear to you and me.

We are poets and other writers,
gifted souls and evil fighters.

Caring, loving, laughing, weeping,
some awake while others sleeping.

Rising now to once more write,
friends to greet the coming night.

Michael "Bless You All My Friends!" Gallatin

Author Notes

After reading the fine poems by English Kev and kitty I was moved to write this. I dedicated it to them but it's really for all of us. This is a community and for the most part a fine one. There are squabbles now and then which are bound to happen when a large group of people gather in one place. But generally this is a beautiful and loving community of writers. We contribute what we write and share the writings of others, that's sheer bliss. And in doing so we become not just fellow writers but friends through what we do. What more could we ask for?

Thank You
Hey Michael!
Many thanks for the dedication. I am honoured (forgive the 'u' - I'm English!) A beautiful poem and I can only agree with everything Kitty has said so eloquently.

Wonderfully said
in written word and also within your Authors Notes. I kind of site hopped for a long time before finding WN. At the time there was war going on at the site I had called home for many years. I found WN to be welcoming even with my rather bizarre way of doing things. LOL Thank you for the dedication and your original choice for Kitty and Kev was a choice well made. SL so others can see.

Perfectly said.
Couldn't have asked for a better response from one of our most talented writers. Respect due! We hail from all walks of life,cultures, creed and yet share one common bond - our love of the written/spoken word. Thank you for your dedication/tribute, much appreciated.
