To My Readers

I am going to be retiring from Tuesday Poem this week and will be closing this blog on June 5, 2012.

I hope those of you who came here found some pleasure in reading my poems.

Thank you all for your kind, thoughtful and perceptive comments during these past two years.

Wishing you all the best,

                Melissa

  3. Dear Melissa- And where will you be going and what will you be doing?! Oh my, I'm going to miss you and your Tuesday poems!

    You bring so much pleasure and knowledge and beauty to the blogging world, Melissa. I hope we'll see you writing somewhere again in the future, but I fully understand your need to retire (or break?). I'll be keeping scant summer hours myself.

    Thank you, thank you so much for sharing your gift with us. Please keep in touch! :)

  7. Dear Jayne, thank you for your sweet goodbye! I'll be knocking on the door of Suburban Soliloquy from time to time. I don't know where I'll be posting poems or writing prose, but I'll let you know when I know. Take good care of yourself! xo

  9. Sad news for us. Your nothing-held-back poems always nudge - or gently jolt - us out of the familiar and never fail to model for us the splendor of painting with language. I await your blooming in another part of the forest. xo

  10. Don't shut it down yet, my Queen Bee, not before my comment. You've been a teacher and a giver of precious gifts (too precious for the Google brain, in my opinion). Say farewell all you want, but when you come to Auzzealand to enjoy its wilderness of word-song, a community of poets (and Zireaux, too) is here to embrace you.

  11. Mary, dear, you've been so kind to me, so good to all of us. I know how to find O Audacious Book. I'm glad you were inspired by my poems and posts. All love to you, my friend.

  12. Dear Marylinn, it's always nice to hear that one's work has nudged or jolted or moved another. I'm delighted I could be for you a model for the 'splendor of painting'. I'm sure I'll put my roots down somewhere else in the woods. xo

  13. Dear Zireaux--oh, how wonderful to be called Queen Bee this early in the day--or ever! I'm glad if were able to find lessons and gifts in my posts, and I haven't forgotten (in fact, I printed it all out and saved it) how lovely you were about my Mad Maud and how beautifully you wrote about her and me. If I ever get to Auzzealand, I will look for you, Z., and let myself be embraced. thank you. Be well.

  14. Oh Yes, Zireaux is right - come and visit us, Melissa, one day - we're waiting and will be all hugs and delight - 'Queen Bee' - I love that, exactly right for you. XXoo

  16. Mary, dear, I will come and visit. I'm afraid Zireaux may have gone a wee bit over the top, but it was a lovely rechristening, wasn't it? Love to all.
