As Morning Comes by Dwayne Leon Rankin -- by Member: Dwayne Rankin, USA -- added: 8/19/2019 8:02:57 PM

Dwayne Rankin said:

oh thank you Betty. I"m so glad that this poem was received by you so well. It was inspired by a piece of music that a friend had written and posted on facebook. He's the one that does such wonderful narrations. And this one spoke to me upon first listening to it. listened to it as I wrote this one.. about 10 times I think hahaha

Betty Janko said:

Dear Nishu, another limerick for Denis and one of 'sweets'. Right up my alley as well! Alice and I went to dinner the other day and they had a slogan on the back of their shirts..."Life is short, eat dessert first", so I ate my chocolate pie first, then the chicken! Thanks for the chuckle and hope your posting problems clear up soon dear friend. *****, Betty

S.zaynub Kamoonpuri said:

Wow nice to know you like dates friend Nishu!! You are sweet so you have to like them neh. I can see that you could relate and acknowledge the original no dating culture among Indians. Indians of different religions yet culturally know that premarital dating does not help marriages at all much. Best wishes,

Delightful and cleverly penned Zay Zay. I enjoyed this as much as I enjoy dates - they satisfy my sweet tooth too, by the way. And yes, your second little poem states a cultural truth poetically. Good to read something by you - you write differently and on such diverse subjects too. Fondest pal x

Hi Philip, yeah I guess every president has his fans and critics and it's nice if we say nice things about leaders. Glad to know what he did in good for his country. Thanks soo much for a fine comment, yeah keep on writing. I don't think I have a large following here. On other sites people do like mey work more. Here it goes unnoticed mostly. Cheers!

Paul well said, there is no way to avoid "stress and anger", but if we learn more coping ways and feel them coming we might just know we took a wrong turn. To you and all on VN, may your days be joyful and your anxiety be light. Hugs, Marcia.

Elizabeth that would be wonderful to see your work again. No matter what, VN is a great family, and we are always here for each other. Love the note, it is a wonderful tribute to Voicesnet and how it brought so many together. I have learned, far and wide, how similar we are in heart and mind through the genius idea of Jeff's to open this international site. Let us keep it going. God bless, you have been missed!

Hi Nishu, I too have a sweet tooth. Love those little chocolate buttons with the sugary hundreds and thousands on them. Sight! Well my wife Claire is an optician and this is handy for getting discounts on my contact lenses. Had a few pairs of designer frames but I am always sitting on them. Not worth the hassle. Not sure about server problems. I get on ok. There are loads of adverts but I guess they are keeping the site viable. You always dish up poems of a high standard Nishu. Wm. *****
