Building Up The Suspense

Author:

I Waited And Waited Till I Couldn't Wait No More

Thank You

To all you hubbers who left some of the most beautiful comments on my hubs

You just participated in a hub test

I just want to let you know

You all passed with flying colors

I have been watching my hubs comments grow

Then pictured in my head if it was in the thousands

How would I answer you all?

Without leaving anyone out

I would have to take hours every day

Thinking of something different to say

I would be thrilled and excited

Then totally exhausted

How would I find the time to write?

More importantly, how would I read all your hubs as well

In life, we are able to experience so many different feelings

One of the best feelings in the world is suspense

Then ending with an amazing outcome I could never expect

Gratitude with great appreciation

For all that hubbers do

Their words of wisdom and praise

Their loyalty and honesty

Most of all their friendship and thoughtfulness

I know poems are not everybody's favorite pastime

For me, they are so special

They are my connection to the world

For other people, it might be a favorite sport

Some like to go out dancing and drinking

Then even more people like big parties

Other people like Facebook and games on the computer

I am simple

I like to think and dream

What has been and what will be

I can go big as the stars in the sky

As small as a single cell

Each time I am as surprised as you are

What I write

I have no game plan

It just comes out like the rain

Not to dampen your spirits

But to cover you with a touch of freshness

It has always been my dream to have fun

While doing so make sure other people have more fun than me

Then today will not only be a great pleasure

One so much better

A real magnificent treasure

Ann Carr I think I go back to my childhood and one of my greatest pleasures was learning to count. Knowing with that knowledge I can count on and on to infinity and beyond. There are no limits. All it takes is the willpower. 15 hours later it is my deepest pleasure to tell you how much life is filled with misopportunity. We don't see things till it is to late. Then at the same time we have accomplished so much to enjoy that with all the love and care in the world. Thank you for all your comments and the sweet friendly views and thoughts. My fahter and I had many conversations growing up. Most of all I remember we didn't see eye to eye. He taught me a lot. It took me years later to understand and appreciate all the hard work and effort for everything he did. Have a lovely and gorgeous morning.

Harriet Dionela Isn't funny how much we try to please other people in our life. In so doing proving to ourselves we have what it takes to be kind and generous and loving. When I see comments on my hubs I see a wonderful world of opportunity and the best of all the freedom of expression. It makes me happy all over. Have a great day. Thank you so much for your comments.

No, I don't count. It's just great to catch up on comments and responses. Your boat has most certainly not sailed without you!

Thank you for this poem. This is a nice and light read. I enjoyed reading it from beginning till end.

Ann Carr Where there is a will there is a way. I just haven't found it yet. i struggle with the silly things. My bottom line is I will always be grateful to so many people who continue their support. I have had kind of a nutty two weeks. Lots on my mind. All good just off the wall. I have been trying to keep it in perspective. I haven't been doing a good job at it. Thank you so much for your detailed and special comment. I really do enjoy and love them all. John Hansen The breath of fresh air comes from the life and the love you constantly spread. I am the lucky one. I am so blessed to be part of your day. My pen goes in a direction that i haven't seen before. Even after ink it wants to write more. (lol) Two days later and I am still getting around to everyone. Some I misplaced and I will find you. Thank you for all your sunshine and your great smile. I will keep the positivity going. That is the only thing I know. The rest is just a boatload of thoughts and prayers. I am so happy you love poetry as well. Many people think my boat has set sail without me many years ago. I am waiting for the next one. It might take a while. Have a lovely morning. Two days late but who is counting. I am and who doesn't love to count. Ever since we were little and I get to practice it every day.(lol)

Chrish Canosa You said it all and so much more. 42 hours later and I am still trying to reach everyone. I had a busy week. Your love and prayers are always appreciated. Thank you so much for all your support.

Gypsy Rose Lee You finally got the break you have been waiting for. I almost fell off my chair when I got the news. I went to write on another of your comments and I o.k. it and then the computer bounced me into never-never land. I hope this doesn't happen again. I want to hear all about it. I can't even think straight. I forgot what I was going to say. You have been working so hard. I sit here with Charlotte by my side. She is napping. Fifteen hours later I am trying to respond to everyone. Thank you for commenting and hanging in there in the toughest of times.

Congrats and good for you. I have some exciting news. I write for Vocal Media and it seems to take some time to build up cash. However, now for just 9.99 a month I could join up to Vocal+ what this gives me is that if I get 1000 views on some article I get more cash than I would it I was in the regular program, I get more exposure, and most important I can join challenges for really big cash prizes plus writing for them day in and day out gives me more experience and I can hardly wait now that I got to cash out how soon I can build up my next cash pot, I hope you and yours have a very good weekend,

Awwwww! Honestly, I'm so in love with those lines. I love simple things, like dreaming beneath the rain, I like the smell of the old books in my room, I also love watching the wind whispering to the leaves in front of my window I'm so in love with those simple things. Its where I feel more alive! Thank you so much for reminding me of how blessed I am. You made my day!

"Thinking of something different to say

I would be thrilled and excited

Then totally exhausted" I thought of it too haha

I really want to give you a hug Sir Dream On! Wether you like it or not.

I'm sending lots of love to you all!

God bless you and your wife a good health.

Ann Carr from SW England on March 18, 2021:

What wonderful thoughts and also a great way to say thank you to those that bother. I especially like this bit:

'I like to think and dream

What has been and what will be

I can go big as the stars in the sky

As small as a single cell'

That says it all, that's what writing is about.

I think the commenting and replying bit is a difficult one. It does take up a lot of time (which I've got, but even then it's time I perhaps should be doing other things), but I make sure I remain loyal to those whose hubs are regular, interesting and the authors who become friends. I always reply individually, as do you. If we read every hub of every person we follow, it would be nigh-on impossible to keep up! However, there are many hubs at the moment which are obviously written just to make money and are often taken straight from wikipedia - even with attributes, the words are verbatim with no attempt to craft them into an individual's style. Those I skim through and delete. I'm surprised HP allows them, let alone puts them onto niche sites! I think every reasonable hubber understands that it's not always possible, so we can just try to distribute our attention fairly.

I hope all's well with you and yours. Enjoy your day!

Dream On, thank you for acknowledging all of the other hubbers who comment on your poetry. You are a breath of fresh air with your positive attitude and it rubs off on others. Reding poetry and writing it is my favourite pastime as well...it doesn't need to be planned. It is good to just let your pen flow. Good job. Keep on writing.
