"Hello all of you !"

We are passing into another phase on Neopoet
Where the workshops are holding many.
There are a few of the older members returning ,
It is another time of change, and I hope for the better

I read many comments from now to back when
Still there are some that use to comment on the person
Now this change seems to be a way of talking together
The subjects are poetry not personality or history

Let us all endeavour to keep the pathway we walk free
Free of favour, free of trying to be better than others
It is better when we help all we meet here to write poetry
I know who I am, and how I think in the now, and before times.

Please all of you write your poetry as best you can
All of you critique on the poems as best you can.
This should be the prime directive of Neopoet.
Those that think they are better, learn to teach

In teaching you will see your faults in poetic ways
That you see faults in others, other than in poetry
Well I shall kick the shit out of my crystal ball
As it should be able to show me also those faults.

But I have been taught by the children I know
That all are different but treated the same
With respect and unconditional love always
This is the Prime directive of all things here

Go well all of you that I meet here,
PS:- Prime directive. "CRITIQUE"
Yours, Ian.T

Still here. Just busy at home. I tend to fall asleep when the kids do so free time is rare. Hope all is well.

Keep Writing,

"Quoth said the Raven, NEVERMORE"

All is well with us here at the moment, I will be seeing my Son on Tuesday, which will be good, I don't see or hear much from my bio children..
Sadie and the Spirit children have been talking more than my own children, which is not good for the physical side but the Spiritual is fine.
You take care My thoughts go out to you,
Yours Ian.T and friends and ME shouts Sadie.x

There are a million reasons to believe in yourself,
So find more reasons to believe in others..

There have been a few times that I have been asked to serve on the chair, but I am not of the standard required for such a place, as I believe that whoever is on the board should know poetry inside out.
So I always decline thanks for thinking of that lol.
You take care and will talk more later, damn it, I just haven't got the hours I need to do the things I should.
Take care young Bard, Yours Ian.T

I am glad to be able to observe that Neo has become more a place of learning and compassion than of personalities and fighting. Good to know you see the same thing...........stan

That's why I love Neo - you actually learn how to be a poet with critique designed to help! That's what we need.

Love Mand xxxxx

Broke out in a sweat,
fainted in shock
got up,
re-read it,
fainted in shame,
got up,
re-read it
and posted it anyway.

Whilst you do suck at technical critique
you more than compensate
with love,
generousity,
commitment
and profligacy.

cheers,
