Well, I have linked up mine http://www.tingtasy.com/2011/02/collections-of-tings-poetry-tpf107.html @52 Remember Me(S.Pike) in the list... :)

It is an old poem though, written last year but a rich meaningful one which I am putting it up again for sharing..

And yeah, certainly yes for all your questions.. going to check others out now.. :) Will be back once I am done.. :)

Olivia said...

Hey Ji...

Thankyou for your kind words!

My heartfelt Thanks to Aleza who kept linking the poets despite sitting in her office- quite discretely!!

I guess all of us rocks- we make one hell of a team!!

Ji, you happen to be the lead heroine, without your encouraging support, it won't have been possible!

We are all connected through this site of yours.. After it's comeback, we did a great re- union.. ;)

Again, all of us rock.. wooohooo!!!

budh.aaah said...

Good to be back. To all of you who have been there through the thick and thin, supported me whether or not I came and did the same for you :( I want to say sorry -for not being around (it might continue for a while yet -bad place to be where I am right now) and 'thank you'for your kindness and support. You guys rock! Love you all.

Thanks a ton guys.

azfree said...

Discrete linking is fun! Team work is the best!

fiveloaf said...

yes to all ji.. but wouldn't it be simpler to advice all participants not to link in if they do not condone to your preset rules instead of writing this in your comment? (just a thought) anyway, in case my link did not appear, here it is again.. http://fiveloaf.wordpress.com/2010/09/30/i-cant-hold-it/

Olivia said...

Yeah Aleza..

I wonder what would have happened had you been not around.. love you lady xxx

Happy Rally

Olivia said...

@ Fiveloaf: your entry shows up alrite!!

Thank you for suggesting this- there are poets who haven't linked; however saying it in comment is always best for sound understanding.. :)
No ambiguity!!

Happy Rally Dear One xx
