Thanks for the follow. πŸ˜€ Btw, which poet or which poem was it that had inspired you to write or even try your hand in poetry which you love so much right now? thanks. It’s good to read poems that continue to inspire you as a writer, right? Mine’s Ezra Pound and Pablo Neruda.

    – Sukoshiyama, The Morning Bath Post

    • You really picked two great ones, Sukoshiyama. My first loves were the imagists but Pablo, ah! Between him and Rumi, hard to pick. Both exquisitely splash out the metaphors, and love, Beloved, love! Of course, you weren’t asking me but I was reading Chester’s comments and followers, and wanted to respond. Blessed be!

    steal your
    virgin face

    Will read more soon. And I will be following you, too.

  114. Hi Chester, thank you for following our Blog, it is so good to read that others are saying thank you to you to you too, it seems today that many forget to do so, or think they can choose if they want to be polite or not.

    God tells us to say thank you but if it is just for their own benefit like those who want to sell their material goods, then perhaps it is not of real value anyway but to be fair, there may be other reasons, like when I have lost all my e-mails when my Computers crashed another reason I haven’t done so is because the Teaching others sometimes share may harm those who follow us but this is mainly with Reblogs and Pingbacks, mostly they are ok.

    Thanks again – Christian Love from both of us – Anne.
