Finding Duff the Man

Finding Duff the Man

A Poem by Maria
"

This is in regards to the FRIENDLY CONTEST; and I wrote in regards to DUFF and a few others too. Hope you all enjoy.

                               Talent 
                                    Where can
                                  it be found? Hmm
                             perhaps at the Writers Cafe?
                           I think so, and oh what a joy it is,
                         to find such a place, in which we can
                       exchange and learn from each other. And
                     Treasure can be found, if you truly know where
                 Where to look.  And to admire, more than one, is possible 
  I have found, that from all, a few stand out, at least from my own point of view.  But alas, we are to write of only ONE, and allude to their good works.  So, in the end, I have decided on ONE, but will mention a couple of more too.  If you are ever lost in the mountains, beware of Coyote, for he will indulge you with His Poetry.  And if for some reason, you find a cave, and decide to enter it, make sure to not stay too quiet, or else, Silente, can sneak up on you, and trap you, with such WORDS, that you will be no more.  And if you are in need of some BARLEY, make sure to ask the right Girl, for more, so that you are not fed to the wolves.  And when you run out of CASH, just look for CAROL, she will lend you some more.





         If You find yourself in need of CLEAN AIR, go to the Mountains, if you are in need of something SWEET, eat NUTMEG, and if you simply are in need of some solitude, go up to the Mountains, and find a quiet, place, to sit and reflect on your life and LIFE in itself.
        In the end, it might be cold up there, but all in all, the splendor of NATURE is a sight, to be seen, up on  them MOUNTAINS.



For up on top, you can see the Puffs of CLOUDS the PASS on by, and the air is nice and CLEAN.  The crunch of leaves, under your boots, tend to add to the atmosphere. You might see a bear or two, but they will not bother you.  The birds chit and chat, amongst themselves, and might like a picture or two.  But, if you are in need of good company, I know the place that  you can go.   For you see, up on that Mountain, lives a young man, by the name of DUFF, and he has a cabin, of his own, and if you know how to approach, I am sure he will not turn you away.  Might even offer you a beer or two, and let you sit, on his porch, and lend you his ear, to hear of your troubles, and give you a word or two, of encouragement.  
       


              DUFF, loves the solitude of the MOUNTAINS, but he also appreciates, good company.  Mind you, at times, he might prefer the solitude to reflect on LIFE, but in the end, a visit, of a friend, he will never turn away.  He might tend to write, in ways, that seem to some, full of mystique, and suspense.                      Yet I for one LOVE to read, his work, and always leave with a thrill.
       
                            He is not perfect, for you see, he is a man and as human as you or I can ever be, but no matter, for HIS HEART, is one of GOLD, and if someone is ever in need of HELP, just go to the DUFF man, and he will do what he can.  From all I have met, so far, on here, he has taught me much of this place.  And I do honor all the rest, for each has their own style of writing, that I do admire, but the ONE I admire the most, is the  Duff man himself.  Along with the ones, I mentioned above.  So, to the Duff, I say, Thank you for teaching me much, and wish you the best in this life and know that I shall always look forward, to more of your WRITING, here on this, very site.







        And to everyone else, I bid you a Good day and know that 
          I will do my best, to read, and engage, with others on 
              this site. And work on my own writing, to entertain
                 and be of help. I am grateful for this chance,
                   of being able to EXPRESS myself, 
                     And will continue to do so,
                       as often as I can.

This contains a ton of stuff to comment on! I love the opening part with fun salutations to some of us (I feel honored to be included!) *smile* The next part is a little hard for me to figure out how to read becuz of the way you did the page layout. But still, good stuff. The final paragraphs definitely stand out with sparkle as you describe this friend writer with much affection & creativity. My own life is similar to Duff (living in a cabin in the mountains in solitude), but I didn't know that until I read this! It's great to find out about our friends here at the Café! *smile* (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

As for that cash, while CashesKing, not so much these days!

I've been gone for a week or two, but will explain in a new post. Was very glad to read this first off.
