Connection Rules

***GIVE AWAY rules below***

YAY! The rain and dark clouds are gone for a little while. They say they're coming back later today, but as Scarlett O'Hara said: "I'll think about that tomorrow, 'cause tomorrow is another day!"...Here are a few shots of the backyard, with a surprise!
 And the surprise? Hubby finally got pictures of the Robin!!! It only took him a week of stalking, going from window to window. LOL My big game hunter!
Even the Robin is probably wondering what the big deal is!...Okay, on to my real subject matter today, the Give-Away I'm planning to do! I've decided some rules about it. First, let me show you what I've decided to give away! These two items: 1.) A book of my poems. There are 20 of them in here. 2.) A dangle necklace. The two things together are worth about $50.00! I will even pay the shipping to get it to you...that's my part!

 Your part, if you want to participate in my Give-Away, is: 1.) You need to promote this Give-Away in some form or fashion, and  2.) link me to how you have done so {Tweet on Twitter with " @PoetessWug2 " in your tweet, write an "Attention..." on my Wall on Facebook,!/profile.php?id=100001040284468&v=wall&ref=profile , leave a message on this blog posting down at the bottom of the page, or convo me on ETSY . The trick is that you HAVE to bring it to my attention. Otherwise I won't know that you qualify for the Give Away!...Then,  3.) I will put your name in a special box I've made for this give-away, and on Friday, May 21st at 7:00 p.m. (EST) I will shake them up...REAL GOOD (lol)...and have my hubby pull out the name of the WINNER!!! I'll contact the winner at that time (Make sure your contact info is left)... Oh yeah, if you have any questions, be sure to ask. I'm a baby at this and if I've forgotten anything let me know.
  Okay, blue skies above, Connection with rules made...Go forth and have a good one! And take this poem with you!

There is a need inside of us
To just connect with someone else;

To look at them and somehow know
that who they are, can help you grow;

That if you just could somehow feel
the way down deep, that makes them real,

Your words will, then, no longer hide
the 'who' you are-the you inside;

And then, if you should laugh or cry
or lean your head, and give a sigh;

And if they mimic back to you
the same reactions that you do,

Then there's a real connection made,
and all your inhibitions fade.

All the walls that you put high
will fall away-into their eye,

Where you can look and see intense
emotion-and their innocence;

And you no longer must explain
the need inside, you now must claim;

The need to be the 'who' you are.
They've taken stock-and raised the bar.

Now-if you touch, or if you don't,
or if you will, or if you won't;

It doesn't matter-not a one,
the things they think, or what they've done;

Because connection has been made-
the needed, real, foundation's laid.

Now-there's a real relationship
that you give action-not just lip!
