Farewell poets

I just wanted to thank all my poetry friends for
Reading my work and the pleasure of reading
Their great poetry. I will be giving up my
Number 3 spot. I don't want to compete
With poets I just love to write. And it's
Taken the fun and Joy of writing poetry
Out with all this jousting for the top spots
I'd like to thank Phill, Caleb Smith, doina,
Barbara, analia styles, James Barnett, Joyce,
John Lowe, ankur sawat, eman saif, melody sunflower, George
For inspiring me to write and share my work.
I will still put out some work. I just don't want to compete with anyone anymore. I just want
To write. Thank you everyone. It's been a fun ride!!!!!

You are an amazing writer, whether you are ranked number 3 on here or 3000. The rankings don't mean as much as we once thought they did. What matters is that you write from the heart with talent. Hope to hear from you soon.

Thank YOU for all your encouragement, Michael. I am new on this site and I have noticed that some are more active than others. What, indeed, makes a great poet? 3 * for your very humble post. Kind regards, Suzette Crous

A great poet is someone who writes from there heart and not there mind. Someone who puts there heart and soul in their writing. If your doing that then your a great poet. I appreciate your kind words, and I'll review some of your work. thanks!!
