Farewell Creative Poems
Creative Poems.

The time has come to say farewell as she whispers on the wind,
Who can tell if we shall meet here again as the sun sails across the sky.
And the clouds sailed past while the sun dancer danced and grinned.
There lies the tale of what was and what shall be as told by you and i.

As from the land of Dragonwick the dragons painted circles in the sun,
While Lady Dragonwick smiled and watches as her children spread on.
The moment was there for all to see as they waved goodbye to the fun,
As they sailed away on a moon beam for a day knowing the time has gone.

Such times are there to enjoy and read and explore all things to share,
Enriched in the knowledge that the writer gives freely to you they impart.
For in every journey there must be a start and ending and a time to care,
As shall be so shall it be written and each verse wisdom here from the start.

And so as the sun departs like a golden tomahawk, it draws to the end of the day,
As all is gathered in and shaken down ready to store and enjoy once more,
In the distance all ready to go the bag lady shows us which path is the way,
As this time has ended and left us here to another place on a distant shore.

And so the pen has written all that needs to be written worded and said,
The paper is full and the ink has dried and the moment has faired so well.
With sadness but halcyon golden memories so good and rich and well fed,
We bid Creative Poems a fond and emotional but rich and heroic farewell.

The time time has come to say good bye and no tears must fall or run,
The time is over fare thee well, sweet promises fulfilled, our time is gone.

Author's Notes:
This sadly will my very last post on the beautiful site as her time comes to an end.
Thank you to every single person who has ever left a comment on my poetry here over the years 
your words have been so inspiring and a joy to read.
I have enjoyed reading the poetry here over the years and what a high standard it has been.
we have all shared teh joy of creative writing that poetry is the master of, in verses that rhyme or not as may be
on subjects so diverse and wonderful that flowed through all the incredible language of verse.
we must all hold our heads up high of what we have done and what has been achieved here.
sadly this may be the end for this beautiful site but poetry so rich and choice and beautiful will be there forever.
Take good care and God Bless You All
Colin Skilton

Aaah Colin...these departing words are so bravely and proudly written. But alas, there is more room on the paper. Write on my poet friend. We are here for a while yet. Lovely heartfelt penning.
