Hello Tina!
What a heartfelt and joyful poetic rendering! So refreshing to read a poem that is positive and not filled with complaints or one that fosters divisiveness.
Your banquet table sounds divine; I am grateful to be a small part of it as well!

Thank you!

Just one minor question, can I have my share of the meal delivered? It'll just require a short swim across the Pacific.
This really is a delightful poem rich in verse and flow. To me it qualifies as
quality poetry. I can't wait to read more of your work. Or share in your thanksgiving dinner.

A Feast of Friends, indeed. Very well written poem of gratitude on Thanksgiving for the helpful and wonderful writers who populate the site.

Your extended metaphor works seamlessly throughout the entire poem, and your rhymes perfect.

I wish you great luck with the Contest Committee. :))

This is a lovely tribute to Fan Story friends. I especially like your words, "words desserts" and "talent filled offerings to chew." Made me want to "pull up a chair." Very nicely done.

Tina, this is a wonderful poem, so warm and loving and so well-rhymed and creative. I loved everything about it and think it should do well in this contest. It is one to savor year after year. Thank you for writing it, for meaning it, and for sharing it with all of us, who tend to feel much the same way, I'm sure. Hugs... MM
