RE: A farewell to you all and a Poem to You Friends and to My Love
Brian, Lynne and I have become good friends. Simply, she is the most likeable person on the blockchain. I call her Steemit's Homecoming Queen. There will be many swords that will draw to protect her in your absence. Mine will be one.
I too am a poet and have tutored many in the art. Many people believe that poetry is about the mechanics: Meter, rhythm and rhyme. But as I have repeatedly written, such literary techniques are but tools that force-multiply that which underlies: An idea, ideal or insight ... and, anything times zero, is still zero.
As I read your poems, I was struck by the sincerity of the sentiment. Your tribute to Lynn is a Force of Will, a concentration of conviction so intense that it becomes palpable.
Lynne is a lucky gal ... and you are a lucky guy.
