just out of curiosity, how many poems would you think fit into an average poetry book? i have been researching it online, most modern poetry books seem to average between 40-60 poems per book i think. interesting!

Had a wonderful start to Pesach (Passover) for 2020. Two family dinners, the Seder table tonight and again tomorrow night. Powerful days for G-d's great work, and He is faithful to those who pray. All power is from G-d. Shalom, Eve.

Fairly new to this site but would love for everyone to check my writing! If you can't see it, i'll send it to you! I posted a poem recently on encouragement and how we can better ourselves during this tough time!
"Go ahead and show
Show what you mean
Mean what you say
Say what you feel
Feel what you want
Want noting but the best
Best intentions are worth it
It will take you far"

Thank you and BE SAFE!



Jannypan (Jan) : Please delete this ASAP. This is asking for reviews which is against the rules. -

Jokes of the day: :) Laughter is the best medicine -

Since the Corona virus 19, I've washed so much my exam notes from 2019 have resurfaced on my hand. lol

And one from my father: How do I explain to my Grandchildren that a woman in China eating bat soup caused such a shortage of toilet paper?

Forgive me again for delay in responding to reviews. I will soon, but have been busy making face masks for people who need them. Hope all are doing well. Thank you for your support. Take care and God bless!



Jannypan (Jan) : Hi Cathy,
Your project of making face masks far outweighs any delays on your part of reviewing on FS. PLEASE don't apologize for doing something from your heart! I am saying "THANK YOU!" on behalf of all who you will graciously donate a mask. Respectfully with Love and Admiration, Jan -

Tootie: Thanks so much, Jan. I just want to make sure everyone knows I will respond to reviews as soon as I can, but many need the masks right away. Since I can sew, I'm happy to be able to do my part to help others. Stay well and God bless! Respectfully with Love and Admiration, Cathy -

I suspect it was a part of the "testing" phase that I slowed down and read the "Kubler-Ross stages of grief" chart, the
modified model.
Shock, denial, anger, bargaining,depression,testing, acceptance.
Nine years ago, I suffered the rapid fire losses of all my remaining family, my wife and mother. I was 67, and have
recovered too slowly. A youth of poverty and years in the military left me hard enough to carry on, but I got hung up in the
"bargain, depression and testing" stages of grief.
Added to the denial and anger was living alone, and realizing my turn was coming soon.
First I scrutinized my faith, then religion as a whole. Along with some cosmology. No epiphanies there.
Then I thought I wanted to spread my thoughts and notions,becoming in a fashion immortal, although I claimed at the time I wanted to join the ranks of writers I admired, and entertain the world. Hence my membership in Fanstory, and an almost frantic outburst of writing bordering the incoherent.
Now Red the writer has joined Rev. Red the evangelist in sheol, that shadowy nowhere beneath the world.
Today the country store has no heater for old men to sit around and bullshoot (sells mucho beer and lotto tickets, though!) so let's see what Red the codger has to say,assuming he survives Covid-19.

Let's hope things change for the better come Easter. Here in Canada they are reassessing the opening of closures across the province April 13, right after. Let's pray the virus is under control by then, although it may take over a year for a cure, this could become a new way of life for awhile. Regardless, a very happy Easter and Good Friday weekend! Stay safe and celebrate at home. :0))
