Study Room Guidelines

Ok it isn't so quiet in here but our resident librarian will ensure that there is good discussion on literature, prose, poetry, etc. You may also post sermons, notes, and the like as long as it is not copyrighted material and within reason of the post length regulation.

We encourage you to take a lose look at the threads and offer honest and useful input. This forum is a place where we discuss literature of any media, as well as personal creations by some of our own wordsmiths. Debate is encouraged, but we often find ourselves relaxing here.

  • Communication

    Today is the twenty-first anniversary of the first time I contacted my wife. Here is this year’s poem:



    Communication

    Communication is so cheap, and yet it brings so much;
    How greatly we’re enriched by another human’s touch.
    One and twenty years ago, we took our first small steps,
    When words were typed and sent with faintest hope in their effect.

    Yet as the back and forth went on, a deep connection grew;
    An unexpected friendship, something beautiful and true,
    That served as the foundation for a life we both now share,
    So bountiful and loving that our old selves can’t compare.

    The lesson to be taken is to reach out and connect;
    The worst thing that can happen is that they will just reject
    Your offer of communication, friendship or support,
    In which case you’re no poorer, in fact you’re only short

    The time you would have spent uncertain, torturing yourself,
    To formulate the perfect words to cast the perfect spell
    And win them over to your side as friends or something more,
    When all that’s really needed is to open up the door

    With honesty and openness, being true to who you are;
    Few healthy people really want a puffed-up movie star.
    Luckily for me you liked the things I had to say,
    And who I was inside didn’t frighten you away.

    I learned to share my deepest thoughts, my passions and my fears,
    Building up a trust that’s served us well so many years,
    So let’s keep talking, sharing, as we build our family,
    Our lives woven together as a wondrous tapestry.
