Updated on February 13, 2020

I am a writer of poetry and fiction. I especially love flash fiction. My name is Ruby, and I live in Southern Illinois. I am a retired R.N.

Happy Birthday To My Dear Poet Friend Manatita

Happy birthday to my Dear friend Manatita whom I know as Cecil

His poetry is special and always leaves me feeling peaceful

His magical words heals the soul when feeling sorrow

His beautiful words lift you up, looking forward to tomorrow

He's a friend to all Hubbers who cherish his majestic work

Unless you're one who dislikes poetry " Smirk "

So let this special day be happy and gay

Hopefully Manatita will remain at Hubville, leading us on a more peaceful pathway.

      Hello Manatita. I had to take the small picture of you that I had at the bottom down. HP said that it was too small. You are an angle to all of us who read your inspired poetry. Peace my poet friend

      I don’t think I have ever seen another hubber receive so many tribute articles on their birthday before. It shows what high esteem manatita is held in here at HubPages. It is only fair because of all the tribute hubs he writes for others. Nice poem, Ruby, and Happy Birthday again to manatita.
