Dedicated to the writers here in the Den.

Flower Grown in Gold


Dedicated to everyone who courageously shares themselves here in the DEN. I also want to thank those of you who take the time to leave feedback in my little nook. I would have retired my pen long ago had it not been for your encouragement, inspiring words, shared experiences, and well wishes.


Perhaps I’ve only seen your picture;

The flower still GROWING in its pot

Maybe your face is a mystery,

Though facets of your beauty are not


Your words have traversed rock and rubble

Stirred in me FEELINGS, not of my own

I’ve fallen off emotional cliffs,

Trailing an expertly-composed tone


I’ve accepted every offer

FOLLOWED…if you were inclined to lead

Mind packed with wisdom you’ve imparted;

Suitcase full of life-lessons to heed


TOGETHER we’ve sailed ole mistress blue

We’ve kicked the dust in barren terrain,

Watched Mt. Olympus Gods earn their myths,

Debated over Able and Cain


I’ve lost myself in your fantasies

Felt your WORDS like a butterfly kiss

Soaked my pillowcase on many nights…

Reading about a loved-one you miss


And in the process, I’ve shared of me

My pen’s possessed by my nagging soul

Because a blank page calls for something:



How did I get to be so lucky?

Home sweet home with those who understand

My FRIEND, I feel as if I’ve met you,

Though I’ve not even shaken your hand

How well we get to know each other through our words and how lucky we are! This is beautiful, Sheila. You have touched me so often through your words, giving me--giving us--a piece of yourself. Truly wonderful! ~Hugs, Elizabeth

How unselfish are the intentions of this work of pure art and the release of your soulful emotions my dear friend. You are the seed that sprouted and grew into the lily of the valley with the nourishment you sought from your extended family of lexicographers and artistic soul mates. This nascent poet is beaming with pride at your accomplishments. To relate and face the wrath of critics it presents you with is to be bold and caring. "Flower Grown In Gold" I cherish you. I bid you love and peace my dear friend. Jon Michael

Brilliantly compose Sheila
If You ever leave We won't be able to read
wonderful dreamlike poetry as this Jewel In a treasure chest
Stick around, continue conveying your thoughts
through that golden Quill you have dipped
In the blood red ink of your soul's inspiration.....
Love & Peace be with you

This poem brings me a warm fuzzy feeling, Sheila! I agree with what you say about the authors in The Den....I've made so many wonderful friends they've become like family to me....seems I've always known them.......wouldn't it be grand to actually clasp the hands that reach out every single day? Very nicely penned, my friend!

Sheila, I love your flow and it seems it is with such ease as compared to many who struggle in poems with rhyme and meter. The subject theme of this particularly grasps me as it is one that I have tendered when I have read someone like Emily Dickinson enough to have fallen in love with her through her wriitngs. I believe this in my book is your best as it hits home.
