Dear Friends,
this is a thank you, and a website warming party. I am learning wordpress, and working on so many things, for me, us, and poetry.
I wanted to make a page for you my readers for nearly two years on
When I first found the site, I knew it would be entertaining, and valuble. I am writing a book about my life, and always adding to it. It may never be published in my life time.
You all shall be in the book, because your friendship, reads, and poetry have, and has truly meant so much to me. You all made my days and nights on that site. We shared happiness, and sadness. We learned a lot from each other, and we stuck together through the hard times. There are many more, but you all were always there. No matter what poem I posted you were there, true, and blue.

Now we have turned a page, and have continued to be friends and fans of each other.
We all have roads to take, and things to do in this beautiful life we have, a great gift indeed. I am very busy, and going through a lot, but not a day goes by that the memories speak to me. We all should be happy for all of this. I feel grateful to have your respect, and trust. The other day I thought Oh my, these poets want me to lead them, and they see me as something. It’s an amazing feeling to have this inside me.
I have tried all I could on O.P. I do know we can all make our dreams come true. Mine have, it’s a long story, but it’s in the book. No matter, just remember we did it, all of us, we made, and are making history. A dream come true.
I love all of you so much, always..
I shall be by your pages soon to be entertained, miss it…

the reality of the situation is that it might not… however a house does not make a home… the people who live and love under the same roof is what makes a house a home… we the members of this community that have stepped up and voiced our concerns are the lifes blood of what makes this all so beautiful… we will overcome regardless of weather it is under the op roof or another .com site… united we will stand and deliver our words… our views and our expressions… with passion and integrity as we have always done…

I love this here by Brett- ‘Quote on the last days of OP by Brett Isernhagen. ’I will be not so much sad that it is gone, but happy that it happened. If this was just a flash over a few years time, it was the flash that launched us each individually on a trajectory to a greater craft.

My Internet Writing Life Motto is-
Keep it Poetry and Poetry Shall Keep You:,
Short Bio:Hazard…

I have to take the road that Bruce Lee
took towards the Martial Arts, as an
Analogy here. Like Water;
I take the Literature Arts of Poetry.
In the beginning I used free verse,
swift rhyming, lyrical, metal-rap-groove verse.
With definition and aggression.
Now I try different systems,
in all genres, as always,
And put them to my personal use,
furthermore put to use what is useful
when needed,  and reject what I don’t need
at the time for a specific write.
Using no specific way is the way,
I am the way I write, but keeping in mind,
the tools at hand. No limitations as the limitation.
With all poetry styles ( trapping, and grabbing)-
(Mind locks-Heart locks-Spiritual locks-)
Honestly expressing ones self is difficult to do:
The Poet, the creating individual is always
more important than any style or system.
Absorb what is useful, discard what is useless,
And add to what is your own.
I write my own interpretation of poetry.
Concepts behind concepts.
Dedicating to creating
creative new-original thoughts, and poetry.
Like I write with one hand,
but if I could write with the other,
at the same time, a different poem,
that would be to break boundaries.
As asking multi-tasking: Poetry styles separate poets.
Style is a continuous growth.
Poetry skills/tools are weapons and you have
to use all of them, to incorporate all styles.
(Move all parts of your poetry)
Put everything into it, all energy.
Rest then progress.
A true poet is constantly growing,
and when he or she are bound by a set of styles,
or a way of doing things, that’s when he,
or she stops growing.
To reach a reader you have to move
to them, advance, and retreat- advance retreat,
furthermore slide and step back, push,
and push back, circle them
( put the reader on defense),
and close them in, and hit them
with the best closure.
Poetry is like water, flexible, it has to go somewhere.
