"Writing Spirit Survives"

"Feeling Lost Without Community" is a poem I wrote about missing my morning ritual on Hubpages.

My little community is no longer the same without the ability to comment.

I still read and take those magical journeys with you all.

The Hubbers I mention in this poem are listed below.

John Hansen

Bill Holland

Misbah

Peggy Woods

Pamela Oglesby

Dream On

"Jasmine Thompson ~ Old Friends"

Feeling Lost Without Community

No "Poems on the Porch" to ponder,
no monday morning ritual with Bill,
my week is starting out all wrong,
I hope it doesn’t keep going down hill.

The comment section under attack
hidden like a prisoner of war,
forever my words are tormented
like someone slammed a door.

I wait patiently for Misbah
to send a sliver of light,
to trickle through the darkness
saving me from this plight.

Hoping Peggy takes me on a journey
to a place where my feet
might someday walk,
and Pamela finds a cure
for this new reality
where my words no longer converse.

Trusting Dream On to show me the way
to tackle the unexpected
like he does each day,
telling me not to give up
for tomorrow is another day.

If there ever comes a day when we can't be together,

keep me in your heart,

I'll stay there forever.

Poem Summary

"Writing Spirit Survives" is another poem written about our Hubpages community.

No matter what is tossed into our daily path, Hubbers are resilient. We always find a way.

The writing spirits of Hubbers will survive another day.

Writing Spirit Survives

We maybe a little rough around the edges

but we're too tough to crumble,

for our little community is thriving

determined to succeed.


When each door closes

we find a new light,

searching for feedback

on the stories we write.


Posting each other's work,

our communication grows,

searching the newsfeed for an article to read,

leaving behind a comment or two

proving beyond doubt

our writing spirit has survived.
